Smithson Thus Far... ·


Many of these old plot threads get picked up over the course of "Demons" and the next storyline, "Mad Science Is Decadent and Depraved," so I thought it'd be helpful to mention them again and jog readers' memories. I never did a feature like this again, even though it might have been useful later on as well. Then again, we're currently about halfway through Narbonic, which is as logical a time as any to do this.

As I've said many times already, I'm not happy with the way this storyline turned out, but it was good for tying up a few old plotlines and advancing a few others. It's also crucial in advancing, or at least complicating, the Dave/Helen relationship.

Andrew and I really did watch a lot of Sid and Marty Krofft around this time.

Mike B. (epenthesis) says:

Videos. Wow.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Memories", Andrew Lloyd Webber)

Sunday ...
Need a strip for a Sunday ...
I don't have an idea,
Time is running out fast!
It's too soon to
Have Andrew draw a filler for me ...
I'll just recap what has passed ...

Plot threads,
All those dangling plot threads ...
They're so tangled and knotted,
Such confusion severe!
Guess it's time to
Remind you what the heck's going on,
Just in case they re-appear.

Weaving all the plots together,
Man, this isn't easy!
Ev'ryone knows
Sid & Marty Krofft shows
Are glo-ri-ous-ly cheesy!

Help me!
I need fan art or haiku!
Now the comic is half-through
Its original run ...
I need something to fill another Sunday for me ...
Wait, I just did ...
Guess ... it's ... done!

Daffyd Wagstaff (lord_killerfish) says:

Sometimes you've got to get through the hard plot points to give the overall story a greater strength.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Hi.
Joe Glow (joe_glow) says:

Only halfway??  Holy crap.

Leon Arnott (l) says: "She wouldn't do it for FREE?" actually makes a lot of sense in hindsight - only base carnal urges can stay Dr. N from instantly accepting a delicious murder, but why, Helen asks himself, would his mother hesitate killing a man she had yet never met face to face?

The answer, as this very page mentions, is that she met Dave age 6 and was thus able to anticipate that he would mature into the handsome beast we all know today.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

Shaenon, did you get a chance to see the Kroffts at Comic-con?

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

No, but Andrew excitedly told me they were there.
