Sally Forth Comic Con: So Long, and Thanks for All the Funkos

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on July 28, 2018

And thank you for riding with us!

To those who thought this story went on for far too many weeks, your long, national nightmare is over. (Including the guy who tweeted “Bro, is the comic-con storyline going to end in 2018 or nah?” leading one to naturally assume his account had been hacked by a douchey four-year-old.) To those who enjoyed the journey and the countless cosplay characters that Jim Keefe not only expertly illustrated but will use in his defense of “justifiable homicide” when he kills me, we can’t thank you enough. We enjoy attempting different stories and narrative structures with the comic and your encouragement is why we keep experimenting. (And why we enjoy hearing the old-timers yell “Stop!”)

But remember, it all ends tomorrow—like any 80s syndicated cartoon series—with an important PSA from Starlee and the Moonbeams! And you get to complete your “Sally Forth ¡Popps! figure collection today with Faye! Plus, there’s still some summer left over, so get ready as we close out the season with two-story werewolves.

A new summer vacation storyline will arrive next year, though we’re not quite sure in what form. Usually in a movie franchise by the third or fourth film the characters are launched into space, so perhaps the family will realize moving to Mars could be their greatest and shortest-lived trip ever.

    I’m still waiting for the storyline where Ted decides to learn Esperanto, only to be shamed by Hil and her friends as they become fluent in a conlang like Navi or Toki Pona.

    Then you can get emails from people like me asking “Ted finos lerni la lingvon internacian? La fina venko komencos antaue li lernas” and you can make fun of us properly.

      Hahahah Maybe that can be our next summer storyline! 🙂

        That’d be awesome! You know it’s the perfect conlang for Ted, ever since William Shatner learned it so he could star in “Incubus.”

    Even if the storyline went on too long (I don’t think it did), that’s part of the con experience. At some point, you eventually have the feeling “This is all that ever has been or will be. I have been here forever and will be here forever. All that went before is merely a vague and almost forgotten dream.”

      Oh dear God is that true.

    AWESOME storyline! Ignore the haters completely. They do not get it! Thanks!
