Comment on 023 Just Not Abel To Cope of Neko the Kitty

The Eye Watching Cain is quite a famous story about Cain's wandering in Exile with the Eye of Judgement upon him. As far as I know it's not in the Bible, it's just a legend that sprung up. The Eye of Sauron's the same basic imagery but I needed the classics reference to get to the WWF reference.

Victor Hugo's 'La Conscience' seems to have been the thing that brought the Eye Watching Cain into popular culture, but the story itself is probably older than Hugo. Here's a link to the text in English. I did a reading of it but then realised I hate how I look and sound on video so here's a nice recording of it in the original french

Today's vote incentive is Ollie sitting in a thing of Hay Paige left out for the rabbits. It's a little hut thing that they liked better upside down. After a couple of days we discovered the rabbits liked it for piddling in and got rid of it.

Paige and I went to see Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders on Monday. It's an animated film based on the old 60's Batman show, with Adam West and Burt Ward voicing Batman and Robin with Julie Newmar as Catwoman. It was exactly what I wanted it to be.

I was grinning from ear to ear from the opening bars of Neal Hefti's classic "Batman!" theme. Batman to me is the 90s animated version, but the Adam West one was on Channel 4 when I was little and I'm very fond of it. It's a really strange interpretation of the character, it's kind of... Gloriously Shit. Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara discuss, at length, how great Batman is. Our Heroes stop in the middle of a chase to cross the street safely at a crosswalk. The abandoned factory has a big "Abandoned Factory" sign out front, and dear god the sprays.

There's a bit where they walk up the side of a building, detective work is a process of wild free-association, and the old "ZOT!" "POW!" "SPORK!" sound effects are back and take on a fantastically jarring twist in the third act. There's a slow-moving death trap, everyone buckles their safety belts, and Holy Exclamations Summarising the Situation Batman! I was six years old again.

There's a lot of meta humour about later interpretations of the character and the original show's place in history. Catwoman and Robin get in a brilliant little dig at Dark Knight Rises, and there's some Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy moments that probably aren't actually homages to the homage.

Adam West and Julie Newmar are both audibly older than their characters. At 71 Burt Ward sounds *exactly* the same. West is 88 and Newmar's 83 now though, so while you can hear it it's kind of a kick that they're still having so much fun playing Batman and Catwoman fifty years later.

My attention did wander a couple of times so the 7.2 rating on IMdB seems about right to me, maybe more in the 7.6-7.8 range because it's trying to capture something elusive and misses a couple of times, but absolutely nails it a couple of times too.

I don't know what it'd be like for someone who didn't used to watch the old show growing up. The nostalgia's strong and good, but it's a very different Batman than our teen readers will be used to, and its a style of comedy that seems to have gone out of fashion.

I'm gonna start tilting my horizons again though.

Today's vote incentive is all three of our kitties sleeping on the couch. Aleister's pretending to be an optical illusion but you can see him.

Incidentally panels 1 and 3 are available as wallpapers on the Patreon page I keep forgetting about.

@the kitty cat king: Damn that actually would have been great for the visual gag. You can see his balls!

It just says Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons on the cover of my copy of Watchmen. Colourist John Higgins seldom gets a mention, but he really adds a lot to the book. Check out some random panels from Google

Neko with Doctor Manhattan powers would be a very very bad thing though.

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to get this done in time for a Wednesday update.It's late and I'm going to bed, and I have my doubts about there being a comic on Friday. Work's long and I'm not a slave to a schedule, but I might surprise you.

Anyway, bedtime. Vote incentive's this really nihilistic photo I took in Dublin recently.

He'll pop up from time to time but not in every strip. Everyone thinks he's Dickbutt anyway, and a quick Google search reveals that Dickbutt actually *is* older than Bummy by more than 3 years (July 2nd 2006 vs. June 4th 2009). I had actually always assumed Bummy was older than Dickbutt, but no.


Actually KC Green does some good comics, his website's kind of horrible but it's worth digging into. He's most famous for Dickbutt and that one with the dog sitting in the burning house saying it's fine. http://kcgreendotcom.com/

Nearly didn't get this page up! Paige and I spent most of the weekend rotating the furniture in the living room because that's something you do in your mid 30s. We've a nice cosy setup now which puts the couch a bit closer to the TV and lets me get from my computer chair to the couch without having to walk around the sofa. A side effect of such an endeavour is the place got tidied up quite a bit and it's nice to be in a tidy apartment. I'm a bit annoyed though because my Nintendo 3DS wasn't under the couch when we lifted it up and I had assumed that's where it was.

Oh! Longtime readers will remember the Find Bummy minigame that ran for quite a while: A couple of years ago I made Paige a sculpey Bummy statue as part of her Christmas present, and we started taking turns hiding him around the apartment. I don't know who hid him last but it's been at least two years. I think Bummy won.

Today's vote incentive is a picture of Aleister in the sink

I've been reading my Kindle a lot lately, it's great for public transport because you can turn the pages one-handed. Really a great little device, it's got me reading more than I have in years and I'm really feeling the benefit of that. I just downloaded the Kindle Comics Creator, so I'm going to see where that brings me.
