Book One, Page 20
Look at me trying some dynamic page layout! And wee Carlyle gets it from a giant strawberry – what a delicious, delicious way to go. Though there’s some hardcore violence on this page, I was always happy to present the Cap’n as a total badass. Part of the “success” of BOTG is the marriage of these innocuous advertising icons with R-rated action movie levels of violence and the consequences of such. The humor could have been played up and underscored, but I think I made the right choice in playing it straight.
