"I felt awful when I saw how my work on
Gulliver had been mangled by half-assed inking and bad in-betweening. If I hadn't signed a contract, I would have left on the spot."
This is kind of a delicate subject, but: I feel like there’s been a marked decline in the quality of the Apartment 3 G
art over the past year or so; artist Frank Bolle will be turning 91 this year and I wonder how much longer he’ll be up for doing the strip. Today Tommie has wandered so far off-model that it seems that even the syndicate colorists have failed to recognize her and given her the wrong hair color. Honestly, the strip could use the infusion of new energy from a younger artist like the ones who took over Judge Parker
and Gil Thorp
in the past decade. It would’ve been particularly nice to have someone new in place in time for the steamy shower lesbian three-way Apartment 3-G
fans have been waiting for literally since the day the strip launched in 1961.
"Lady, what the hell is up with your head?! Seriously, what is up with it?! Honestly, it's bigger than that giant Eileen head from Silent Hill 4! Geez, what is up with the art for this book?! Seriously lady, somebody needs to photoshop that thing back to the right size, because right now that melon has scared me more than the demons, monsters and undead wife!"
: You fool
! Do you realize what you have done??
Takahashi: You started the fight scene! Now we're all going to be drawn by the... 3rd String Backup Animation Team!!
: "Hey Kaiba, since Marik entered the tournament under a fake name, shouldn't he be disqualified?" Kaiba
: "The only person who should be disqualified around here is whoever made Tristan black in this shot." Tristan
: [having darker skin than usual] "Don't you be hatin' on my blackface, playa!"
: What's wrong with this picture? Rocko
: Uh, Bunnyman's got three whiskers? Mr. Smitty
: Yeah, Rocko
: But everyone knows Bunnyman has four whiskers. Mr. Smitty
: Right. SO FIX THEM! ALL OF THEM!
: The shotgun looks like a fucking 70's station wagon.
