An Impasse?

If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.

Do you know who the worst procrastinators are? It's not writers. It's not students. In fact, we all know who they are. Movie villians step forward.

Bad guys, at some point in the script you will have the good guys just where you want them. This would be a REALLY good time to finish them off. Do not delay. Gun, knife, screwdriver, whatever's handy. Avoid anything with a fuse. There isn't anything more urgent that you need "to attend to". Do NOT leave the scene.

If ruling the world is one of your life goals, please take on board the advice on this site. It could change your life and, if all goes well, everyone else's.

Next Up: Magic bananas!. A continuation of this post.

This comic strip takes its inspiration from the original Star Wars movie when Luke Skywalker while fixing R2D2 activates a message from Princess Leia and this leads to the plans for the Death Star weapon. I was a bit worried because this movie was first released 30 years ago and I drew the strip before the latest movie The Force Awakens had been released.


I needn't have worried because my strip is now bang up to date (except for the hair style but good taste never goes out of fashion). Don't get me wrong, the latest Stars Wars movie is great entertainment but one thing that made the original a classic was its originality and The Force Awakens doesn't have an ounce of it. So if the current series follows the existing trajectory, we can look forward to Death Star 4.0 and Ice Planet 2.0 and Rey Skywalker. The good news is that this strip will remain fresh for years to come (at least comparatively speaking).
