Rat Retrospective: #4 & #3

Rat Tangent’s Top Ten… #4:

January 14th, 2009 – “Local Boy Done Good”

The time-traveling Future Dalton was a tricky character to deal with. How to milk the humor of time travel without getting bogged down in the ethics and mechanics. Again, I think I got lucky coming up with some great dialogue and one of my favorite punchlines of all time. In fact, “An apocalypse is a great motivator.” even wound up on a shirt that a few of you may have picked up at some random convention I was at.

June 25th, 2008 – “Copper Skies”

I liked this strip for a lot of reasons. It was part of the epic Jokebot story arc. It broke out of my typical, two people facing each other panel style. Plus it had a good punchline and just a dash of poignant. I think you’ll find this pattern of success follows into my two favorite strips. See you tomorrow!
