THE SCREAMING WILHELMS #6.1 (Reworked)

Okay, trying it again. The 1st version of this comic was unclear. I hope this one makes sense. If not I'll throw it on the scrap heap. That heap is getting out of control these days. Sorry trees, for all the paper I wasted.

  1. I got it in its original form, of course. Now, it is too clear ! Too easy to understand ! I HATE it now ! Or, to paraphrase Bob Dylan's paraphrasing of Abe Lincoln: "You can please some Stinkers all of the time, all of the Stinkers most of the time, but you can't please all the Stinkers ALL the time" ! ;~j This one is funny no matter how you dealt it.

  2. I thought the original spelled it all out just fine. This version is too "hand holdy". I always liked looking at Sergio Aargones strips in Mad because I didn't always get them at first. Because of that I spent alot of time studying the drawing and the panels, which is never a bad thing.

  3. I agree, KW. Never second guess yourself or play "down" to the audience. Let them work for it and suddenly they've participated and like it all the more.

    The audience rewarded by paying attention is a laughing audience.

  5. Seriously, though. Seeing these two pictures posted together gives me a weird idea: Has anyone ever done a comic with a 'Cartoony' guy as a sidekick to a realistic, scary Guy ? These two characters juxtaposed would be an interesting comic duo if they could rise above their own contrast !
