The Sleeping Aid to End Them All: Part 2

The scene: A well-lit TV studio, decorated tastefully with a large couch in the center. On the right sits a nice-looking woman in a blue dress and opposite her is a large figure completely obscured in a voluminous cloak.

The woman turns to the camera. “And we’re back. I’m your host, Brenda, and today we’re talking with-“

“YOU MAY ADDRESS ME AS NAGÄAE.”

“Wow, that’s a mouthful!” Cue canned laughter. “So, Nagä-, Nag-“

“NAGÄAE. I WILL ALSO ANSWER TO FRANK.”

“Great! So, Frank, what was that revolutionary new sleep aid you were telling me about?”

“IT IS CYÄEGHA, NAMED FOR MY LORD OF NIHILISM WHO SLEEPS ETERNALLY UNDER DUNKELHÜGEL.”

“Eternal sleep? You’re not going to get that with just any old pill!”

“NO.”

“So what makes Cyäegha different from all the other sleep aids out there?”

“IT IS PRESSED FROM THE CRUST THAT FORMS AROUND MY LORD’S GREAT EYE.”

“Eye crust? That’s sounds . . . er . . . was that a tentacle I just saw?”

“NO.”

“Really, I’m sure-“

“NO. IT WAS MERELY AN ILLUSION CREATED BY YOUR FEEBLE HUMAN BRAIN TO COPE WITH SOMETHING IT CANNOT COMPREHEND.”

“Ah. Yeah. So, Cyäegha. Is it safe for kids as well as adults?”

“NO. IT IS NOT SAFE FOR ANY MORTAL BEING.”

“Okay. Um, are there any side-effects?”

“ONCE TAKEN, YOU WILL NEVER AWAKEN. YOU WILL SLEEP UNTIL YOUR PITIFUL HUMAN BODY ROTS AND YOUR SOUL IS DELIVERED TO FEED MY LORD IN HIS ETERNAL SLUMBER.”

“Right. And that’s about all the time we have. I’m your host, Brenda and- what the? What the hell was that?”

“THAT WAS ACTUALLY A TENTACLE.”

Cheers,
-Jason

“THAT WAS ACTUALLY A TENTACLE.”

HA, nice touch.

While I usually post about the blog, this time's about the actual comic. Which I guess is the reason we're here. ;-)

I just can't get over how well Iri looks so alike younger, yet so different. She's been drawn well enough that it looks like a real person, getting a little harder, more care, and perhaps a bit of aging. Such a subtle difference, but it's done well. Kudos. I guess that's one of the reasons I keep waiting for a new page to come out. :)

Thanks, I'll pass that on to Leigh, who deserves all the credit for the art :)

I have to agree with Jerron, there was a subtle difference that was very well done.

Oh and Hubba Hubba.. .
:p

I love your blogs, Jason. If it wasn't for the fact that the comic was so awesome, I would tune in every now and again just to read your blogs. They brighten my day dramatically.

In fact, I save particularly good ones as a Notepad file in a folder dubbed "Random Shite"--which I rummage through every now and again when I need to laugh.

Oh, and Ia Ia Cthulhu Ftagn. ^_^

Thanks, Sinai_WinterWolf! I actually write my blogs in a Word file called 'Stupidity' so Random_Shite works just fine :)
