*So there we go… some questions answered, new ones posed. Nerf was responsible all those years ago for trapping his fellow Time Flies, he just hadn’t done it yet, and he didn’t do it on purpose! Molting is the Time Flies version of regeneration, so Nerf ends up becoming Buzz in the process as a result of his sacrifice to save the universe and the effects of having been forced to eat butterfly toffee… something that causes memory loss for any Gadfly. But questions remain to be answered… who is behind it all? was that really What’s That?! and why, when Nerf first met Buzz, did he think he was an old friend named Frank? To be continued! 🙂
*I’m sure everyone is asking, is that a coloring error? What just happened? Friday’s episode will definitively answer that question… Meanwhile, I recommend you go back in time to Sunday August 2, 2015 and read through to Friday August 7, 2015. This will help you see that the toffee isn’t just something I pulled out of left field today. It has always been part of the plan! 🙂
*While it is always good to revisit old ‘Sects… this would be an excellent time to go back and read the Sunday four-parter, “Secrets” that began back on June 21, 2015 and laid the groundwork for the story being told now… Check it out!
Obviously, or perhaps if I did things right not so obviously, this was not the original Sunday plan. It was definitely going to continue from last Sunday and the Bill & Ted part remained the same… but when I was younger, I used to like to have conversations with people using only familiar song lyrics. It’s amazing sometimes how much of an actual conversation you can have with someone if you have the same taste in music. So, anyway, with Prince still floating in my brain I reworked today’s episode to incorporate as many lyrics as I could while still hopefully telling the story I wanted to tell. Oh, and I won’t forget about that little nugget dropped in the first story panel (after the movie poster homage) by Buzz… it means something.
I’m not really prepared or properly equipped in my silly little comic strip here to make proper tributes when someone of significance passes away. I feel it’s appropriate personally since I was a big Prince fan in the 1990s and have a soft spot for a lot of his music and many lyrics are still stuck in my head today… but I do wish I weren’t doing what seems like so many of these this year.
