Some reflection, and a not so subtle hint that there actually has been a direction to this character’s growth and development over time.
Slightly poetic. Primarily because I, as the author, really did never intend for the Hamster Sergeant to be a main character. I didn’t actually intend there to be any main characters in what was supposed to be a non-sequiter styled comic. Yet here he is.
This one may have been way to cerebral for folks. Oh well.
I am so sorry about the wordiness of this. I’ve often run into trouble with my comics where I have more words than I can fit into them.
If you’ve seen Fight Club, you’ll understand.
Part of me couldn’t wait until I could get these characters back to the Island and Old Man Worrall’s porch/house where the whole comic first began.
For you age 30+ folks out there, you might remember a short lived Friday night sitcom called “Teen Angel” which starred Ron Glass as a floating head in the service of The Lord who gave advice to a teen that became a guardian angel, and whom initially thought the gigantic floating head of Ron Glass was going to eat him.
For you age 20+ folks out there, Ron Glass later became better known is a far more famous television series called “Firefly” in which he played Shepard Book.
Buchan has always been the character used when I wanted to break the Fourth Wall. So what the Hamster Sergeant is about to go through is less of a near-death experience, and more of a near-fourth-wall experience.
