Anonymous "true confessions" books were popular in the Victorian era, including books by servants of the famous or infamous, so I thought Victorian Dave could write one about his henching career. There's a great real book by a woman who was a maid and married her wealthy employer, and she wrote about how he made her dress up in her maid uniform in the bedroom. Victorian Dave would probably have some spicy stuff to put into his own memoir, as it turns out. I was also inspired by the novel Mary Reilly, about Dr. Jekyll's maid, which is much better than the movie.

This page turned out pretty good. A four-panel strip doesn't give you much flexibility with layout and pacing, so it's nice to be able to do a gradual zoom in like this. And the lazy grey fills don't look as bad in sepiatone. They're actually kind of striking.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says: I enjoy the "title and initial followed by blanks" anonymization conceit.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Miss N_____. Ah, Miss N_____.
Leon Arnott (l) says: Ideally, I'd be more appreciative of this Venusian fish-lord body-exchange enterprise if it were merely one of a great many episodes during our trio's auspicious lunar expedition.
'Keiya' (keiya) says:

I desire a copy of this book, The True Journal and Confessions of an Evil Henchmen, but my local booksellers seem to have never heard of this fine work. Pray tell, do you know where I may procure a specimin?

 

(My faux-victorian sucks...)
