Comic Update: Hoppy Happy

Hoppy Night 1, Hoppy Night 2

And they said it couldn’t be done! Three comics in one week! Of course I made these two at the same time, but details, details.

To get the full effect of my bold artistic vision you have to imagine those title cards fading in along with the sounds of people drinking and eating, all while matched to Showa-era Japanese pop music. I put a lot of work into making the title cards look as tacky as possible, especially the second one. For the first one, please imagine the glow around “Part 1” flashing on and off, and for the second one imagine the lettering coming in with bouncy, cheesy animations, while the “Part 2” tilts up and down.

I guess the only joke across both of these is that everyone is getting drunk off of Hoppy. Well, except for Brad. Brad’s gotten so used to drinking to forget that his constitution stronger than any other man’s. He’s drinking the Shochu straight. I’ve been actually meaning to use that script in the second one for a while, but never found a good opportunity until now. The last panel for that one is a little sloppy, but I enjoy how Brad’s expression turned out. I wonder how he even ended up at that drinking party anyway.

With luck there will be three more comics next week, which’ll round off the Japan Arc. Until then…
