Oh, and I’ve got some written entries coming up, about Tourette’s and OCD, so watch for ’em.
Please, now, to enjoy some older art:
See you next week,
Nadja and I recently watched The Holy Flame of the Martial World, and by the time it ended we both agreed that it was top-fucking-tier Martial Arts Madness. Flicks like Zu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain and A Chinese Ghost Story would never have happened without movies like this happening first.
Here’s the trailer, but it’s a Hong Kong film, so they’re going to throw spoilers at you left-and-right, starting right after the hair fight at :41. By the time you hit :50 you get light spoilers and at the end they give away a huge plot point. I also advise watching it in large–but not fullscreen–format.
If you don’t give a shit, watch it all. If you’ve got nine bucks, though, skip the spoilers and enjoy the breadth and butterth of this beautiful celluloid madness.
A number of you haven’t been following my art for a really long time, so I feel that in the interest of full-disclosure, I should reveal the following:
My comics are not always sensitive.
They’re not always kind.
They’re occasionally TRULY filthy.
They’re not comics you’d take home to mother–although mine finds them hilarious.
I call one set of them Inappropriate Comix for a reason. If that title worries you, don’t look. You don’t have to like all my art, but I think it’s only fair that you know about this one particular aspect.
If this sort of thing isn’t for you, I have little advice to give you, save that “perhaps benchilada is not for you.”
If you’re reading this only to see things that are gonna offend you, please, for the love all of pleasurable sex, go play some adorable Pucca games or something. Otherwise, you have only yourself and your lack of self-control to blame if you get pissy.
Now lie back and think of England.
There, that wasn’t so b–oh, I can’t even lie about it. Either you laughed or you want to picket my home.
I’m fine with either and I will always love you.
Here we have the next two pages of The Wizard’s Lesson, in which maybe a lesson is learned but it’s totally not THE wizard’s lesson.
SHIT. GETS. REAL.
As always, click the pics to make ’em bigger.
PS – Each translation says that it’s a juniper forest, so I figured I might as well mention it. *shrug*
Ladies and gentlemen, the gravy thickens with pages 2 and 3 of The Wizard’s Lesson.
I’m rather proud of myself for sticking to new art posted at least once a week.
I’ve had a song stuck in my head for a long damn time now, but it’s going to pay off in new art that I really like so far. I can’t tell you what it is because I’m a bitch of a tease.
Unrelated: this movie may be showing in the background of our next party. [Well, that and KITTENS.] The lack of plot is more than made up for by some solid fights. Drop the volume to can-only-hear-fist-impacts level and let the lengthy battles roll.
I love that the first fight is barely a few minutes in and is over five minutes of fighting…over whether or not to keep mining.
That’s all for now.
Who knows why your hands smell like that
I’m marginally surprised that nobody seems to have found my Easter Egg in Tuesday’s comic….
In any event, today’s Fuckbrain Classic is from 8 years ago, when my OCD was far worse than it is now. While I still stick to most of the rules in this comic, I’ve been able to overcome a few of them.
I’m just wigging the fuck out of y’all this week, aren’t I?
As always, click to EMBIGGEN the images.
This was the first Fuckbrain Comix that I’ve done using a way larger paper–11×14–and I’m well-pleased with the results. I’m using the same size for my next project–an adaptation of a wonderfully bizarre Chinese folk tale–and it’s working well for me there, too.
Much love to my sweet Robot, for it was she who convinced me to draw on nicer paper than just the stuff in the printer. (-_-;)
You’ll soon see various archives sections pop-up on the website, so keep an eye open for more posts about old comics being uploaded. Not sure if I’ll do a So You Don’t Have To archive here, but I might.
Anyroad, I hope this comic doesn’t make you feel dirty. If it does, go wash your hands.
Who reminds you that this comic becomes copyright-free on April 1st, 2024.
