Sinbad Comic

Join Sinbad and his merry men as they embark on a dubiously-conceived quest to foil a dubiously-conceived but probably evil plot by the evil vizier Jaffar! Sinbad Comic is a screen-cap comic based on the incredible, incomparable, and inexplicable 1989 Lou Ferrigno film, Sinbad of the Seven Seas.

Sinbad Comic has a new strip every Monday and Thursday.

Maryam: Is that a Hulk joke in there?
Sam: Not on purpose? What Hulk joke?
Maryam: The "green with envy" line.
Maryam: Especially as they were talking about his acting and being famous just then. Bit of a stretch, I know.
Sam: hahaha! That's awesome!
Sam: Why yes, yes that was on purpose!
Maryam: LOL

This is the one that made me love Kyra. I knew when I introduced her, with that marriage joke, that it was the wrong direction for the character. I was already covering that ground with Alina, but more to the point the best way to make the most of Sinbad was to give him someone more sensible to play against.

In retrospect, that had been missing all along. By the end of season two, the silliness had ramped up so high I had was stuffing marshmallows up the Viking Warrior's nose. I don't regret that, but absurdity only escalates so far before there's a need to shift gears. After trying and failing to think of how to make Kyra a zany clown like every other character in the strip, the solution turned how not to make her one at all. Once that idea hit, everything clicked.

If today's strip isn't your thing, don't worry. Sinbad and his gang remain nutcases. But with this strip, I'm effectively committing myself to telling a proper story with Kyra, which is challenging in that, other than the hot air balloon ride to come shortly, she has almost no more screen time until her wedding scene with Sinbad at the very end.

So, uh, yeah. Wish me luck.
