Yeah… So…

There’s a comic ready to go. It’sĀ  beautifully drawn and full of the nuance and mystery you expect. Sadly, it’s not Friday’s comic. It’s Monday’s. As a result… well… we’re somehow a comic short.

It isn’t Codex’s fault.

Okay, it isn’t *entirely* Codex’s fault. I had her editing “Death Truck” and we’re working on some Bogwart stories and–

Oh, that’s right. Nobody knows who Bogwart is. Well, no worries.

Okay. I’ll come clean. We’ve wanted to fill in Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and maybe even Saturday with some kind of light-hearted entertainment that will keep you coming back for more. So I’ve come up with a little demonic dude named Bogwart and am writing stories, or scripts, that feature the little vagabond in a “Screwtape Letters meets Scooby Doo” kind of way. Cue desperate-but-funny-branching-out music.

So, rather than run a backup comic which we’re totally going to run in October since both Codex & Glyph will be abandoning me for a week, we’re doing this. More on Bogwart in the near future. I’ve missed writing my inane little news pieces and since Clown World can’t be parodied, Bogwart will have to suffice.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t read “Death Truck” I’d love feedback either here or on the various parts. We’ll be doing the “Bogwart” stories differently, because 5k word blog posts are a little long.

Meanwhile, happy Friday and remember: Laughter is the best revenge, unless you have an automated delivery truck that can utilize its anti-theft devices to eliminate your enemies for you.

Scene XX – Victory in Charlotte

[Setting] The Alexa II black helicopter. Relentless highway patrolman Keanu Reeves, President Donald Trump, benevolent oligarch Jeff Bezos, and the laid-off trucker-who-learned-to-code super-hacker Dane Taggart discuss their plan to save free shipping for all Americans. Jeff Bezos, in the pilot’s seat, switches the Alexa II into autopilot mode so he can join the others in the passenger compartment. Cue disguised-expository-plan-reveal music.

Bezos: “Alexa, autopilot mode. Follow the I-85.”

Alexa: “I’m sorry; I don’t understand.”

Bezos: “Alexa, switch to autopilot.”

Scene XI – A Highway in the Arizona Desert

[Setting] A highway in the Arizona desert whose blacktop mirrors the dark of the moon. Stars are visible. A lone Arizona highway patrol car, siren blaring and lights blazing, races by in the cool desert night, cutting the romance factor in half. Cue dramatic-chase-music-with-slightly-romantic melody.

Officer: “This is 1-Adam-12. I’ve spotted the Death Truck and am in pursuit.”

Dispatch: “Roger that, 1-Adam-12. Exercise extreme caution. They say it’s already killed a cop.”

The Elevator Pitch

It’s late 2020. Driverless AI freight trucks have been beta-tested on US highways for nearly a year. Stealing from them in novel and dangerous ways is all the rage. Free shipping has never been more expensive. Then Mobile FortressĀ steps up with an innovative solution: a fully-armored and automated truck with active anti-theft devices. A new era in free shipping dawns.

[Script by Paul Dubrow (Dub) & Eli Fisher (Fish)]
