Uncharted Political Territory

Wow, so for the first time ever, the Democrats (who control the house of representin') dis-invited the President from delivering a state of the union address to congress. Their justification was that since the President had shut down the government, there wasn't enough time to set up security. This is flimsy, but they went with it.

So the President cancelled the lead Democrats' junket to Egypt and points west. Well, not cancel. The democrats were about to fly on military jets and the President told them that since the government was shutdown that it'd be better for them not to go off on publicity junkets and maybe work out a solution.

Cancelled the use of military planes as the democrats were on their way to the airport and go on the planes. Wow. President hits back.

So this week's post, this is how the dialog balloons used to look in the original version. Oh wow and I forgot to edit the dog's eyes, too. But yeah I think I used Times New Roman font for the dialog balloons and ... yeah, somehow it takes the fun out of it. Like, I think it was EC comics, they used a typewritten font instead of hand-drawn letters like Marvel or DC, and EC's font took some getting used to. It was like Courier New or something.

Fonts can change how the story is received, which is strange, but maybe not so strange.

I retained the original fonts I used for the captions, which was some celtic-style font, and I still think that the font works in this instance. But I have been using "Bottlerocket BB" in the web version for the dialog balloons so far (except for this page) and I think it makes the dialog look more relaxed, and fun.

Maybe I'll change the dialog balloon font again, it's not perfect.

Thanks for visiting! Seeya next week, fellers!

PS also I noticed on Google Search Console that I'm getting visits from search queries like "Grown ups daughters" and "daughters from grownups." It's weird. I guess there was a TV show or something called "Grownups"? And people are looking for pictures of the daughters from that TV show?

I don't know. But anyway, welcome. I hope you enjoy the story. I also really liked the daughter's dialog on this page, I found it comforting.

Comic transcript

You're reading a page from a comic book based on the ancient Irish Myth the Three daughters of King Coluath O'hara. The translation and story was from Jeremiah Curtin's book Irish Myths and Fairy Tales but don't go and spoil the comic by reading it. I'll be posting a page a week, and the first page is here. Please let me know in the comments if you want to buy a copy and end the suspense, and if enough people want it then hey I'll publish it. Thanks!

The King was very glad at the prospect of seeing his children but the Queen was greived, and thought it a great disgrace that her youngest daughter had no one to come home with her but a white dog.

So outside the castle, the dog had some words with his wife, the third daughter of King Coluath O'hara. The dog said "I am in dread. The King won't leave me inside with the company, but will drive me from the castle to the yard. Then the dogs outside won't leave a patch of skin on my back, but will tear the life out of me."

The youngest daughter comforted the white dog, and she said "There is no danger to you. For wherever I am, you'll be, and wherever you go, I'll follow and take care of you."
