Although I like the idea behind this one, the execution of the first part leaves something to be desire, I’m afraid. I blame it on my oldest of enemies – lack of space. I used images from the awesome monster battles I have with my niece, but the creatures are so tiny here, it’s all just a bit cramped and muddy instead of wacky and funny. Can hardly recognize the worst monster in panel #2, Fred Phelps. Ah well, I liked the dialogue between Araminty and Dez at least…. Like so much in this current story-line, the Black Pig of Fear is real, and that’s a photo of it. I usually wait til my friend is quite messy on something or other before they met it for the first time – holding it in their hand, it’s beady white eyes burning two holes in their soul, while I make soft piggy noises in their ear. Guess you hafta be there, but it’s made grown man-girls weep in terror…..
