My very dear friend—and very talented voiceover artist—Tom Racine has posted his reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death.” So get in the Halloween mood, sip your legally-mandated pumpkin spice coffee, and experience some seasonally appropriate chills by listening to this great rendition today!
Ah, the drop panel. The opening art (and often title panel) for a Sunday strip that must be designed specifically to be eliminated in case of newspaper size restrictions without any effect on joke or story. The result is something akin to a raw feed moment, in which we see the characters in quiet reflection, in preparation for the rest of the strip, or perhaps in the make-up chair screaming at some poor intern about their latte (or lack of Voltron knowledge) as their body double helps the the crew get the right staging and light meter readings.
But thanks to Sally Forth cartoonist extraordinaire Jim Keefe, you can now witness these very moments The Man never wanted you to see. So go to Jim’s great blog and experience what you, the hardworking reader who deserves an extra panel, have been denied these very months. Enjoy!
