Q-boy Short Holiday Special 1 – It Sure Sucks To Be Q-boy’s Partner On Christmas
We interrupt our normal Q-boy Short with this 1988 Holiday Special…
So this one is very much a homage/parody of this Deadman story where he runs into a chick who is pretty clearly Pre-Crisis Supergirl from the 1988 comic “Christmas With The Superheroes #2”. I first heard of this story from a post on this blog Too Busy Thinking About Comics . This story was also voted as the #1 greatest Supergirl story on Comic Book Resources. The main part of the story and the inspirations for most of the panels of this comic are part of that article so check it out there if you want. It was an interesting challenge to sum up a story that was several pages into 7 panels. You might notice the words look clearer than normal in this comic (especially when enlarged). This is because I’ve started using Adobe Illustrator for the words and the balloons after learned that was better than using Flash for that. Well I guess that’s it. Don’t work too hard without recognition, don’t be self-righteous, let your partners come to the holiday part, and Happy Holidays to you all! Next time a new Bastardized Ninja, see ya then!
