Re: Helen killing?
- Sorry, a little late with my perspective on our guest artist and the
current storyline, but after reading the last newsletter, I thought I
should make my first e-mail to the newsgroup:
I likewise assume the comics are canonical--as observed by Kevin Mowery,
Sarge is endorsing the guest artist.
However, given the considerable jumps in time required for the narration of
the story (from the initial product roll-out to the "killing-cola wars" to
the non-soda-drinking agrarian society), I'd like to make my prediction:
we're reading a dream sequence dreamt by Dave Davenport.
Why not? First, he's the only one of the triumvirate who still has a
nagging conscience of sorts about what they do. Second, as observed by
several artists on the doughy/non-doughy appearances of characters, it
seems perfectly in line with Dave's subconscious that he--after four years
of being a couch-potato-like-CompSci student--wouldn't mind losing a few
pounds. Third, jumping the timeframe forward raises questions about the
previous storyline about Helen Narbon's mother and the gerbils... would
Sarge just let that one go, and follow Neathery's version?
I dunno. That's my working hypothesis, for what it's worth. BTW, as for
the doughy/non-doughy issue, I must admit I like Sarge's characterisations
myself, but in defence of Aaron Neathery's style, I find it is remarkably
clean and precise: I wish I could draw like that myself.

- There's always the possibility of an inter-universe transport experiment
thingie, I guess. (And which bus goes to that alternate universe again?) *sound
of VAST route map unfolding*
