OK, so I'm nowhere near as prolific a writer as the late Mr. Serling. I still think I did a good job.

Ooh, my girlfriend just noticed I have "his his" in frame #2! paxed, can you fix this?

For some reason, I really like the idea of tourist Dudley being "separated from his tour group", as if that was the whole start of his misadventures.

#3 Sorceror Wed, 3 Feb 2010 10:48:32
I can see people going "Wait a minute, this comic has no logical connection to the Tourist class backstory! It's meant to be a Discworld reference."

To which I reply: This is the TWILIGHT ZONE.

Hey! This is a discworld référence! ;-)

#5 Chish Wed, 3 Feb 2010 12:32:59
You see here: a spellbook called "To Serve Man."

#6 Sorceror Wed, 3 Feb 2010 14:10:45
Aloha, Dudley! Welcome to Mr Bemis's rare books!
You see here a broken pair of glasses.

#7 iwantmorepies Wed, 3 Feb 2010 14:42:20
Girlfriend? Yeah right! ;)

#8 mijae Wed, 3 Feb 2010 16:36:05
So yeah, wait till you see "next episode", tourist Dudley is going to make it a bit farther when my comic finally goes up in a couple days. ; )

Step forward, newt. You have been judged and found obsolete.

mijae: Recurring characters don't happen in the Twilight Zone.

#11 mijae Thu, 4 Feb 2010 00:22:28
Oh, don't worry, it's not an attempt at a sequel or anything. I just happened to also submit a strip that explicitly portrays Dudley as a tourist around the same time as you, apparently.

#12 Sorceror Thu, 4 Feb 2010 01:16:47
mijae: was it also a new take on an old newt joke?

#13 Quint Thu, 4 Feb 2010 05:12:59
I'm having a newt-ache from your comment Sorceror.

And it feels good.

#14 mijae Thu, 4 Feb 2010 06:16:04
@Sorcerer: er... no. ; )

#15 Sorceror Thu, 4 Feb 2010 09:40:34
I'll give you a newt ache!
