Episode IV: Quid Vocati Faciunt
Yes, it would have sucked to be Adam. Granted, Jehovah was a first time parent, and didn't have himself a copy of What To Expect When You're Expecting, but all the same... I have yet to meet a parent who would take a big delicious M & M cookie, tell their toddler that it was the best cookie ever and that they must therefore Never Eat It, proceed to leave it on the floor and go away for a while, and then, when the toddler inevitably ate it, banish them to the backyard forever. This morning, my two year old took a pen to the walls and a chair, and EVEN THEN I didn't banish her forever to the backyard...
I am totally excited about the next episode. This comic is an adaptation of a series of stories I wrote seven years ago as a young lad fresh out of the dim morass of grad school, and next episode introduces my favorite character in it, and I'm just excited to see her for the first time. Until then, be excellent to each other!
Vocate Dunsmuth: Quintus Scurilus, what do you know about Livia?
Quintus: Livia! The strongest, most mysterious, wisest, most beautiful, most beloved of women!
Vocate Dunsmuth: Yeah, that one. Where is she?
Quintus: For three days she's been at The Hound, just drinking and staring.
