Sinbad Comic: Episode 20: Stalemate

One of the great amusing things about the movie is how Sinbad keeps throwing his sword away right when he'd need it. I say "keeps," because that's how it seems, but he really only throws it away once -- right here, in this scene, immediately after he has also thrown away his polearm. Another time, he throws away his scabbard. Another time he throws his sword away only after it has broken. Still another time, Jaffar zaps it out of his hand. In one scene, the Viking Warrior throws his hammer-mace away, then picks it right back up again.

I thought it would be fun to try to come up with sensible reasons why the nonsensical things in the movie happen; this strip is an example of that. The shots of Jaffar's glowy eyes were taken from earlier in the movie, when Jaffar hypnotized the Calif into doing his bidding. I figured it would be more amusing for the Calif to go along willingly, which left me free to use these glowy-eye Jaffar stills elsewhere.
