    Mulberry "The Game of Life" Talkback

    Like This Thread!

    http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberr...e=1&seriesID=4

    I've had this idea for a while: "Mulberry plays the game of life literally by remote-controlling a robot from her house." I knew that had to be the "election" storyline this time, so I've had to save it until now.

    This story is also appearing in BANG #2, although slightly different and in black and white. I worked pretty hard on the second issue of BANG and I'm proud of the way it turned out. I would appreciate everyone's support for future issues by dropping in a PayPal dollar for either of the two that are now available online, now that the BANG E-market is finally open for business: http://www.bangpdx.com/store/index.php

    Detailed descriptions for the issues can be found at the main BANG site: www.bangpdx.com

    I read every one of the robot's lines in the voice of Norm from "Phineas and Ferb". This thing is hysterical.

    Wonderful stuff. But I've got an extraordinarily dumb question.

    On the last page—after completing the game (won't spoil it), we see an action that I interpreted as Mulberry getting up and flexing her back—hard.
    For me, this was the quintessential Mulberry moment: after manipulating people around the world relentlessly for days, she's so tensed up from the "exercise" that she's got to physically unwind, and this is how she does it. She's so completely separated herself from the emotional impact of her activity that it's just another "workout" for her.
    I showed the scene to a friend. He listened, unamused, to my analysis of the back-flexing scene. Then he said "No, she just hurt her back when she jumped up and shouted one panel earlier."

    Uh-oh. Whose analysis is correct?

    I thought that since Mulberry crouched while playing the game, she had to stretch before doing something else.

    She didn't hurt her back. Anyone who has played a video game (or done anything else requiring sitting) for an extended period of time cannot resist the urge to stretch once they finally get up and start moving around again. Even though we've seen her standing up in other shots, the general satire here is that she is playing life like a game, and it was only natural that she end it the same way.

    I just got back from Wreck-It Ralph, by the way. Exceeded my expectations; awesome movie.
