Arthur, King of Time and Space


Today's is an interesting study. It's a gag re-used from a KAITAS strip, but a KAITAS strip from before triangle comic strips. In order to make it over as an AKOTAS-2 strip, I cut-and-pasted the word balloons but drew the figures over from scratch. This was not as onerous as it might have been, however, since (as you'll see if you look at the original line-drawing cartoon) this gag is one of the ones I've written of before where cutting-and-pasting of the figures is done for effect.

In the first panel, actually, the word balloons from the original strip were too wide to fit in the usual AKOTAS-2 strip format. I cut-and-pasted the words only, which led to coming up with the effect where Arthur's word balloon overlays Mordred's as if he's almost interrupting him.

In order to find a reference for Mordred's costume as prince regent, I went to Google Images and entered the keywords star trek president. I wanted him in the costume of the UFP President in The Voyage Home, but I didn't find what I was looking for till I tried several other sets of searchwords, succeeding with star trek federation president. I had to refine my search because that initial selection brought up mainly pictures of Barak Obama with pointed ears.
