Smithson Thus Far... ·


One of my all-time favorite Sunday strips. Dana's dream is really cool, and I loved drawing the chibi characters. The drooling, lobotomized Dave came out especially well.

I sometimes had Narbonic-themed dreams while drawing the strip (never since), but they're probably best kept to myself. If you really want to see what kinds of things I dream about, Jesse Reklaw drew one of my non-Narbonic dreams for last week's Slow Wave.

Leon Arnott (l) says: This is a pretty good Narbonic storyline. It's got plenty of stuff that isn't covered in many other stories: external anatagonists, Mell getting suckered, and a climax so awe-inspiring that to actually attempt to communicate it would do it the greatest injustice. And, of course, Dave getting the losing end of the laser beam twice in succession.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Very neat.
Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: @Leon - Not to mention the fact that it could very easily fit in with the final reveal about Dave.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I noticed a couple of cute details that Shaenon added ... such as the gerbil tail on Mell's graduation mortarboard in panel 4.  What I can't figure out is panel 3 ... apparently Mell has mugged Kid'n'Play, and stolen their hair?

Kathy Moon (flipkat) says:

I think her hair's standing on end from the shock.

Ralphm Erridew (ralphmerridew) says:

Does anybody else here read / been illustrated in Slow Wave?
