*Sorry for the skip day on Thursday… I did something else, that I’ll be posting on the weekend. Meanwhile you get a Saturday cartoon tomorrow to make up for it. Also, if you wonder why today’s episode isn’t as funny as you think it should be… trust me… it’s part of a two day gag. It will be funnier tomorrow when you see what happens next. Or, I suppose, it still might not be funny and I’m just terrible at this. Stay tuned! 🙂
*Okay, I know what you’re thinking… Where’s the joke? I mean, it’s just two guys talking… and the one guy’s wife calls him home for dinner. That’s not funny! Okay, yeah… it’s not laugh-out-loud funny… but if you think about it… their names are kind of funny, right? Besides, these are new characters. Give ’em a chance to grow on you. Everybody’s not funny on command all the time! Sometimes stuff just happens… it’s not good, it’s not bad, it’s not funny… it’s just life, happening. Watch the life happen folks. Watch the life happen.
*Thus ends the latest installment of Batfly and Robant… not with a bang, but with a thud. The longest running Batfly and Robant so far, but their story is not complete. Our creped crusaders shall return whenever Fisherman Gorton needs them… but tomorrow is a new day, and with a new day comes… new characters? Stay tuned!
*Sometimes I do political and current event stories and humor… but the real world has been a little scary and depressing lately. I thought maybe it was good to just be silly for a while, which is why Batfly and Robant have been very disconnected from the real world the past couple of weeks. Literal escapism in the form of a trap might accidentally be deeply profound in a weird way… where you’re actually safer inside the trap than you are once you escape to the outside world. But they can’t stay in the self-made trap forever, eventually everyone has to try and get back out and make the best of tough times. Here’s hoping I can continue to be a little bit of a distraction some days to help you get through the real-world nonsense with some fictional nonsense. 🙂
