Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #15
Slowku On Parenting
So this is my version of Goku from Dragonball. So if you know your Dragonball your questions might be…
Q: Why does he look like that?
A: I tanned him up cuz’ I figured he’s a guy who spends a lot of time outside, and I wanted his hair to be slightly more “realistic”. Also I wanted Slowku to wear colors Goku never wore.
Q: Why does he talk like that?
A: The author of the blog “The Dao Of Dragonball”, and several books that goes DEEP into Dragonball (I’m currently in the middle of his 4th book in the “Dragon Ball Culture” series), Derek Padula in an article describes how Goku “is a country bumpkin and speaks with a funny accent, in a rough, simple minded manner” (check out the article here http://thedaoofdragonball.com/blog/martial-arts/ossu-ora-goku-explained/ ). I wanted represent that more than the American version of Goku usually does.
Q: What’s that say on the left side of Slowku’s gi?
A: If Google Translate didn’t blow it, it says “this guy is slow”.
With that out of the way the part with the Grampa is pretty close to what happens in Dragonball which actually leads into stuff that’s more messed up… It’s a different country and it was a different time… Anyways that’s it for this week. Next Monday a new Q-boy Short comic and new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations comics Tuesday-Thursday.
