Happy Independence Day, 2011

026 - Happy Independence Day 2011

Movie Inspiration: Independence Day


I’m baaaaack!  Oh, wait – wrong movie.

But I am back – and just in time for a comic I’ve been waiting many months to draw!  Way, way back when, CJ had suggested this as a fun way to celebrate the 4th of July holiday.  The idea that I would have a comic tied to an upcoming holiday was a fun one, and led to You… autocomplete me and Happy Mother’s Day, 2011.  I had a third planned for Father’s Day, but alas, that fell right in the middle of the craziness that has been my life for the last three weeks.  Perhaps next year.

Today’s comic is definitely more subtle than most of its brethren.  In fact, if you’ve never seen the movie you may not even get the joke.  SPOILER! July 2, aliens invaded.  On July 3, we tried to retaliate, with tragic results, mostly because their ships carried shields that we couldn’t shoot through.  On July 4, we found a way to beat them – send out a signal that infects their computers with a virus, thus shutting down all of their shields.  If you can get past some of the rather glaring science holes in the movie, it actually was very entertaining.

If only our Dude had renewed his subscription on July 3, and not procrastinated.  Tsk tsk.
