MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE–LUTEFISK SUSHI “C”–pg 2(of 6), also: SEAN TENHOFF returns (kinda), “CONTINUITY GUY” is still around, and no…I don’t know what happened to his hands.

     This “one week only”  tale was written by now-frequent collaborator/writer BRIAN BASTIAN.   It was originally the second story featured in MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #0, but also a part of our submission for LUTEFISK SUSHI ‘C’ .  Brian is here to join us–once again!–for some behind-the-scenes retrospectacizing on this 6 page epic:

BRIAN BASTIAN:  Here’s element #1 that went into this issue. I had caught like 20 seconds of “Jedi” either on TV or out in the world somewhere, and this dialogue was stuck in my head. I had to do something with it in either the real world or in something written, and people don’t usually accuse me of being overconfident. Probably because I’m not good enough. I would have ended up shoehorning it into Tommy Chicago but then I had a better idea.  This story!

DANNO KLONOWSKI:  And I’m glad you did.  I’m pretty sure I set some things aside to do this short.  Why?  Cause more than anything I wanted to draw what appears tomorrow.   So…uhh, that doesn’t really help in talking about this page, though.  This page was pretty dull to draw though.  It gets us to tomorrow.  And thats all that matters.

   ALSO:  I was going thru the Staplegenius Vaults over the weekend looking for whatnot and stumbled upon the following sweetness…

   So anyway, that was written and pencilled by me one wintery night back in early 2005 at SEAN TENHOFF’s house.   Sean would later ink it and make it not only “look-at-able”, but made it totally amazing.  In fact I dare say you can’t even really tell that I had anything to do with it…and thats a good thing.  Back then I was for shite.  I still think I am, mind you.  But at least now it’s look-at-able shite.  Anyway…I miss Sean Tenhoff.  Both the man and the cartoonist.  Write home soon, Sean.

   Luckily I’ve also made lots of other wonderful cartoonists friends in the years since the above was done, and one of  them is BUD BURGY.  He’s nearly done drawing our book CONTINUITY GUY.  In fact it’ll even be a real book soon too!  And soon enough the iPAD, I’m sure.

    FINALLY:  For as much as I was looking forward to this Daily Goal Sketch, I sure don’t like how it came out.  Ah well, the client loves it.
