The Last Samurai|
There will be no comic for Friday, January 16 due to a recent death in the family. I'll get back to it when I feel like drawing again.
First off, I just want to say that I'm still tweaking Haze's character design. Please, if you wish to see any other changes, email me.
Secondly, I like the couch
Now, onto something else. I've recently (as in less than two hours ago) seen The Last Samurai. Previously, I'd heard some mixed reviews, to some rather negative ones, and the general gist was "Tom Cruise ruined the movie." Personally, I think it was a superbly executed work. It will win awards. Perhaps not as many as ROTK, but it is certainly astonishing. Not for cinematics, which are rather run of the mill, or for action, although the swordplay is jawdropping, but for characters. Tom Cruise's character knocked my socks off, and the other samurai were so . . . I lack for words. Watch the movie, you'll understand.
Now that I've got that off my back, oh, one more thing. I was in tears by the end of the movie, real, honest to god, tears. I cried in the car in the parking lot afterwards as well. It's that good.
Now, back to my other thing. . . You'll notice the comic is on time for once. Amazing, ain't it?
No more linkies for now though, I must retire, I have a date teaching some latin (insert cackle here) to innocent high schoolers tomorrow and must rest up for it.
Til next week,

This sword serves the Emperor, and only his words can make me move it.
