Sometimes I hate myself.
Sometimes an idea pops into my head, and I think, ďHeh. That would be funny.Ē I donít think about the amount of work it would require to draw or any of the logistics in executing the strip. I only think about that stuff AFTER Iíve started and the suffering has begun.
So this is one of those times I bit off more than I could chew. The joke is a soft parody on a memorable scene from Empire Strikes Back. (I really have to stop the Star Wars references.) The concept just struck me as screamingly funny, and I had to do it. I cracked open my Empire Strikes Back storybook (publication date 1980) and got studying. I even included 2-1B, the medical droid from Hoth. Now THATíS nerdy!
I really had to work at that reaction pic of Daphne in the last panel. Itís really hard to draw a picture that suggests someone is going to momentarily spit out whatís in her mouth but hasnít quite gotten around to it. I think I succeeded.
Kevin might recognize the girls in the medical booth. Iím not sure when Eile and Sunny became nurses, but these things happen.
