Comic goes here.

Thus, I disrupt the pace by bringing you a comic about a cartoon a lot of you might not remember.

For those not in the know (and who can blame you), this is about a little cartoon show called Time Squad, in which an intrepid group of time travelers flitter through the fabric of space-time to correct mistakes that, apparently, occur in the past. For its first ep, for example, they go back to stop Eli Whitney from building flesh-eating robots, so that he can instead focus on the cotton gin.
So, as I tend to do, I wondered about the episodes that, perhaps, never made it past the cutting board.

It was an interesting challenge to replicate the highly-stylized nature of the cartoon, which contrasts the only partially-stylized method of my own art. Otto, the kid, is just damn creepy looking.

What Mark Hamill was doing on that show, I can never fathom.
