Way back in the distant past…
I had an idea for a short web comic. Unfortunately, I have ZERO skill at drawing. Luckily, I know someone who has that skill in spades, and I’d been wanting to find a way to collaborate with him on something. So I sent it to my friend Lee Sargent, who graciously accepted the challenge of interpreting my script. I present it to you now in all its glory:

Out of the ashes of our future destruction, a new hero has been born. Gabriel Bright. Beacon of hope. Defender of justice. Burdened, as are we all, with the knowledge of what is to come – and the responsibility to prevent it.
View now, the future we must change:

This post is going to be like throwing spaghetti on the wall: I’m just gonna toss a lot of stuff up here and see what sticks. It worked for Oscar Madison (okay, that was linguini – work with me).

There needs to be a Hitman Monkey comic book. A depressed monkey running around whacking people… what’s funnier than that?!
“Hitman Monkey: No Funny Business”
Oh, man… that would have been an awesome background character in a Tick episode. He could have been in the background in every scene quietly taking out the “extras”.
