Tiny little nerdy guys are always funny, I don't care what you say.

No Overlooked Manga Festival this week. I've been enjoying the newest show at the Cartoon Art Museum, Edward Gorey's Dracula, featuring art and memorabilia from the Gorey-designed 1970s stage production of Dracula. Among the news clippings sent over by the Edward Gorey House and Charitable Trust, I was drawn to this actual article from the Boston Globe:





Take a look at that first paragraph.



Alas, for what might have been!

Edward Gorey's 'The Trouble with Tribbles.'Collapse )

ROFLMAO, thank you! I love best the panel, "On Thursday there was an altercation with some Klingons." Says it all, really.

I LOVE GOREY, and you brilliantly captured his style in this.

*Standing ovation*

Freaking awesome. *bows before you*

Hey Shaenon,
My husband sent this link to me. He's a big Gorey fan and has a copy of the Gorey Dracula Toy Theatre set. I told him the Gorey show is up for a while, so who knows, maybe we can check it out. In the meantime, I friended you on my LJ.
Great pics!

that is astonishingly brilliant!

Found you via Boing Boing. OMG, that was brilliant. Made my day.

"...a somewhat alarming number."

Perfect Gorey. Just perfect.

Lovely.

All the faces are a little bit too cute for mock-Gorey, IMHO, but the narrative rhythm is spot on, as are touches like Gorey's foot stepping out of the first panel!

He was also a Buffy fan. What an awesome guy.

I swoon.

Another random stranger (albeit a friend of Dana T.'s) here to say: I had certain suspicions, thanks to Cordwainer Smith references and WinsorMcCay–flavored foreshadowings, that you were a friggin' genius. This latest threatens to confirm them.

Total winnage.

If i might suggest a few additional panels?

"The itinerant salesman promised Uhura unexpected pleasures."

"The chief engineer was forced to defend the honor of his ship."

"The creatures expressed a notable dislike of Klingons. The feeling was mutual."

Good suggestions!

. . . have I mentioned lately that I love you and think you excrete awesome from your very pores?

I caught this when you first posted. Absolutely brilliant. I just wanted to let you know you're now on www.Drawn.ca.
