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 is currently on hiatus but will eventually return for the fifth and final season.

Oh for goodness sake, yes. Someone who knows that wherefore does NOT mean where. I think we may be the only two people, like, EVER.

robbak: The movie is going to be much faster in most cases. Additionally, there is the problem of scene order. I've rearranged a lot of stuff. For example, in the movie, Sinbad is already in the dungeon by the time Ali ever enters the palace. Here, not only did Ali rejoin Alina beforehand, but I took bits of the same scene to construct their backstory way back in comic #4.

As a thought: How does the pacing of your script match with the pacing of the movie? Would it be possible to have a bunch of friends watching the video and reading your script? (Apart from the impossibility of keeping a straight face, of course)

LaZ: I'm delighted to hear you say that. This strip was a very difficult one to conceive. Since there's no real action here, and I didn't have any reason pertaining to the comic's plot to have these two talking, I had to resort to taking a few screenshots of the scene, then trying to decide, based on the body language, what they might have been saying to each other. I was exceptionally pleased with the result, relieved as much as anything that I'd managed to get something that not only made use of the images but played with Poochie's personality. After "There's Nobody Here" and this one, I discovered Poochie was just going to rule all over the place.

I keep reading the fifth panel and cracking up at how perfect Poochie's expression/body language is. Actually, it's really good throughout this strip.

Well whaddya know, it was actually Poochie the Dwarf, with Talent Many Times His Size, who wrote the works of Shakespeare. No wonder he used a pseudonym.

I really don't have words for this. Except to say that Poochie is beginning to remind me of my brother (who would probably say the same about me).

The Google ads below the comments seem to be pushing Sailor Boy Theater. "Sinbad Tickets! Great Seats, Cheap Prices. Buy Sinbad Tickets Now!" DUDE, WHERE DO I SIGN?
