Rat Retrospective: #8 & #7

Rat Tangent’s Top Ten… #8:

May 6th, 2009 – “Buggy Whip, Anyone?”

I did a little story arc around newspapers’ uncertain future in the digital world. This was one of my favorites of that arc for a couple reasons. It was a pretty creative layout (for me) and the dialogue worked well. I think this was also my way of letting go of any fantasy that Rat Tangent would ever break out into syndication. We would be a niche webcomic and that was good enough for the rats and me.

August 26th, 2009 – “The Heart of the Matter”

The cloning story arc was another one of those that I had simmering on the back burner for a looooong time. Originally, I intended to get back to one Tesla very quickly, probably through a murder committed by the Vegetable Mariachi Band. But VMB ended up being a bit of a dud and I was having too much fun doubling my Tesla shenanigans. The art is good, the writing is clean, and the punchline is genuinely funny. To me at least.
