I know I had said Blinky and Sal was over and it was eluded to the fact that he had been euthanized, but what can I say? I like the little guy. He may be popping up every so often in between episodes of Barb.
Blinky and Sal may be over, but there are book collections available and there will be new projects coming soon!
The Blinky and Sal timeline has been reset. Everything is back to normal now. Todd never killed himself. Sal is not in a vegetative state. Spatsby is out of jail. It has all been restored thanks to the valiant efforts of Bathtub Benny. Take my word for it.
One of the great things about having a character that can travel through time is that literally nothing matters after that. It’s basically cheating. And, no. I don’t think just being aware of that fact gets me off the hook for lazy writing.
A reminder that three books are available right now. Straight from the Pit of Hell, Toddspeed, and Propaganda.
Blinky and Sal is coming to an end. It’s been a fun ride. I still have several weeks left to get through before I move on to something new. But, for parties interested, there are three comic book collections out right now. Maybe one day later a fourth will come out with the final episodes.
Straight from the Pit of Hell is a sprawling collection from the comic’s undisciplined origins up through the first gags to appear on Patheos-NonReligious. Short gags concerning existential dread and whatnot as well as the longer stories “Luna,” “The Debt,” “Skin (it’s my party and owl cry if I want to)”, “The Spiderhouse Rules”, and “Pilgrim’s Digress”.
Toddspeed features more dark whimsy as well as the first appearances of Neil NeGrasse Bison and Tim the pervert tree. It also includes Spatsby’s near death experience mini-story.
Propaganda contains self-contained jokes and jabs and the much longer political time-travel saga concerning Mayor Clown Hitler’s rise to power. It also features the lighter mini-story of Blinky’s diet.
