This strip gave me so much trouble. I was literally working on it up to five minutes before it went live. I think originally just the top three panels repeated, putting Marcus in an endless loop. It didn’t quite work. I like it fine now, displacing Marcus in time and space, but it was a lot of work getting to that point. Lesson learned: don’t start drawing a strip with only a half-formed idea.
The answer is: No. I have no idea where this idea came from. Guess I was fed up with idiotic gameshows. I do like smart gameshows, mind you.
First full-color strip and first appearance of the gameshow host, who I’ve used again.
Originally, it only had the three panels of characters shooting poor Murkowski over and over again. But I thought it needed more, so I tinkered with it a bit.
