Shaenon: Strip I wrote and then cut from the final storyline. I do that sometimes. While we're at it, some more New Orleans thumbnails, for strips that did get drawn:








Channing: Collaborating with someone who you revere in an artistic sense has so many things to recommend it, but one of the few drawbacks is a certain reluctance on my part to nix any of Shaenon's work outright. I eventually agreed that the decision to get rid of the above strip was a good one, but only after some degree of hesitation. It's one of my big challenges as a co-writer on this strip.

In terms of the sketches, I just want to say that I love the sketch version of Sweetheart going maniacal after the wet cement incident. We had to keep it a little on-model for the final version but that picture never fails to amuse me.

Also: Did Unity get the hat from Baron Samedi?
Dave Estep (cyaegha) says:

Second page, bottom right. Sweetheart channels us all. Absolutely adorkable.

Right!
S-A-

Right!

Who's the one who leads the dance into the grave?
Samedi, right! Samedi, right!
Who can lead the rockin' rollin' undead rave?
Samedi, right!  samedi, right!
Hey-ey-ey-ey, see him come!
Hey-ey-ey-ey, he's got rum!

But wait a sec!  What the heck!
Do I see Unity,
In Samedi's suit?  Samedi's suit!
Coat and tie, my oh my!
Groovy hat!  How 'bout that!
Totally cute!  Totally cute!

Lookin' ti-ight!
She's dressed like Samedi, ri-ight!
She just needs someone to fi-ight!
She's going SHOOF in the ni-ight!
She's dressed like Samedi, ri-iiiiiight!

John Ames (commodorejohn) says: That "microcosm" strip is pure gold.
Ysabet Just Ysabet (theysabet) says:

Oh gods, the paw in the cement... **grins** There are certain things most people want to do and never get the chance to do-- not the BIG things, the little forbidden childish ones: pulling the fire-alarm handle, toiletpapering somebody's lawn, shooting their boss with a water-pistol, pieing somebody in the face (or getting pied, also fun)... gotta add the wet cement thing to the list. **nods firmly**  Love it.

Bernard Sheehan (smilodon) says:

Really you should do that strip and put it in the next collection.

Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

I would have been very happy to see any or all of the first 3 strips in the official canon. Numbers 1 & 2 are especially good....

Amy Fiori (amy82986) says:

The second and third ones are in the official canon, aren't they?  Only the first one was cut.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Heh.  Toiletpapering.  We TP'd the new preacher's house while the church was having a welcome party.  He was a really good sport.  I even took a photo of us as we did it.
