CALLBACKS: Minecraft III The Cold Open
Posts Tagged ‘God’
This comic, inspired by a suggestion from my friend Dave Johnson, is a sort of tribute to the mockumentary Troll Hunter. In the film, a group of students filming an independent documentary about bear poachings begins following an enigmatic trapper, only to discover that he is a troll hunter.
Troll Hunter is not for the kids–it earns its PG-13 rating with foul Norwegian language (subtitled) and troll attacks violent and frightening enough to give the elementary school set nightmares. For an adult or responsible teenage viewer, however, the movie provides a creative and hilarious twist on the “found footage” format, deriving additional humor from its deconstruction of Norse troll mythology and the protagonists’ questionable decisions. Despite their shortcomings, though, you can’t help pulling for the overconfident student filmmakers, and the movie musters considerable intensity for its climactic scenes. It’s clever and entertaining, and I would recommend it to teens and adults who enjoy bizarre cinema.
If you have forgotten that Karen works for Teri, you would certainly be forgiven.
Here are some alternate endings to Friday’s comic, in which the Mall Information Attendant can give as good as she gets.
I’ve got a guest strip up today at LukeSurl.com! And it’s in color!
Luke Surl is an exceptionally clever cartoonist, and his comics feature fun and witty standalone gags. You should read his stuff!

I’m back from vacation and ready for another year of Sketch Comedy. Depending on what you mean by “ready,” I mean. In some respects I am completely unprepared. Still, I’ve got some exciting plans ahead for the comic, and I’m jazzed for a new year. I wanted to give props to God, without whom I would not be here, in this chair, typing these words about this webcomic.
I would also like to thank Brian, Owen, Matt, and Brad for their awesome guest strip contributions, which allowed me to take some much-needed time off from the internet in general. Now that I am back on the internet, I have been able to respond to your comments on their guest strips! If you would like to see what I said and/or continue the commenting, just start at Brad’s guest strip and work your way forward.
See you Friday!
