It was originally this comic, if you were wondering. Don’t blame me; I photoshopped this to make Robert laugh, and he said, “you realise that’s the comic, right?”
I feel like I should break down the myriad interesting reasons why Justice League and the DC cinematic universe fail (with the exception of Wonder Woman, just give all future films to Patty Jenkins and Allen Heinberg), but I really don’t want to do that. I don’t need to, right? Like, we’re surely all on the same page on this one. Enough must have been already said.
Russia has… well, just look. We’re living in strange new times.
I’d normally draw the game screenshots myself, since, well, this is a cartoon strip and I’m the friggin’ cartoonist, but I was struggling today for a few reasons: my computer was continually slowing down, freezing, and crashing in almost equal measure (it was slowing down hugely, which throws the balance of the three off), and I’ve had a nasty stress headache coming and going all day. I can normally knock out a strip in about ninety minutes; this simple strip was pushing, no joke, four hours. So I had to just call it a day, and make the comic I was capable of making. Thus the slight disconnect between the dialogue descriptions and what we’re looking at.
The title was Robert’s work, and was a reference to this. I could see him rushing to explain the reference to me (as is usually appropriate with something history-based), but I actually knew this one; I was eager to head his explanation off.
