page 13 of part 3 of the bimshwellian comicoid.

An educational page. Though it makes me mad that all those bootleg elpses are pretending that they are not elpse.
Not surprisingly, I could not conceptualize the full level of detail I wanted, despite having “written” this section years ago, until I already had it drawn and the text spaces fixed in place.
that this appears so soon after another my debuting a “story” about pointy-eared imps stored in cylinders, is a coincidence; that concept is from 12 years ago. I am just not very creative!

    So Elpse did not start out naked, but instead later became such and decided that this state of affairs was not subsequently worth altering? Truly the most shocking of plot-reveals.

    Yes, elpse was born fully-clothed.

    I have not determined what the coverage difference inherent in this flashing-back means, longterm, although I will have access to an extremely flimsy excuse after posting the next page.

    Holy nut balls that’s a lot of words.

    The lighting on the lower right corner is really beautiful.

    I like the interesting relationship between else and nemits.

    It’s starting to seem as thought Elapse “takes care” of Numbits.

    Frimpinheap sez:

    Elpse sees to nemitz’s safety, yes, regrettably.

    Indeed, fitting the words in was trouble. As generally occurs, and that I am yet terrible at anticipating, the full hoard of things that I wanted to say did not reveal themselves until I had already allotted space and drawings for them. This may be something that I can re-order after I have more pages drawn, and another opportunity to dump the less essential information shows itself.

    I see.

    A strange question has occurred to me.

    If all the other mibrims are indisposed and pickled, then why does Numbutz seem okay, car accident notwithstanding?

    Nemitz is one of the indisposed! This scene takes place prior to things that happen later.

    I may be shaking you down for spoilers, but is this why Nemitz speaks in strange words?

    you have me in suspense :)

    Frimpinheap sez:

    The truth is that this whole section is an attempt to late-explain things that I came up with arbitrarily without forethought and never intended to explain, because those fools were only supposed to matter in their initial kumquat kontext. Consequently, these explanations are utilitarian and may not have value outside of that. But since I am making it up as I proceed, I do not know that for certain yet.

    I only hope I do not diminish their value as individual characters by placing them amitz a large group of similar dumb imps. Saturday Night Live used to do that all the time: introduce a weird character, show it way too often, run out of ideas for it, and then have it meet one or more nearly identical characters, often portrayed by that week’s celebrity guest*, and then after the mandatory applause dies down, there is not a whole lot left.
    *Perhaps not surprisingly, Will Ferrell’s films often star him as a buffoon who has a rivalry with a very similar buffoon.

    Fortunately, just as nobody applauds for dopes, nemitz is likewise uncelebrated.

    Well that is interesting. You make me think then that at some point Nemitz and Elpse were two-bit fools designed to appear and fade away in a brief moment. And yet at some point something changed and they gained meaning and purpose somehow. Interesting!~

    Something changed and they became three-bit fools.
    They were not necessarily designed to fade away, however; I truly had no plan.

    I cannot believe elpse ever wore pants! He must be embellishing this flashback to make the blue lizard jealous of his superior future clothing which may or may not exist!

    Elpse is a petty thief!

    I like the reveals from this page. It looks fun drawing grivvits and mibrims all over the place. To think nemitz might have some technical skills that make it quite valuable in their world. It might even critically think. I expected a caste system, but my guess was more between the robots enslaving elpse, nemitz, and their like.

    I didn’t know the imps were only meant to be part of kumquat’s story and nothing more. I have to wonder what a non-elpse-and-nemitz centered Part 2 would had looked liked.

    Frimpinheap sez:

    These matters are not worth thinking too hard about; you will be at risk for giving them more thought than I did and will consequently be rather disappointed that nothing special occurs!

    An alternate part 2 would not have looked like anything since I did not consider much more than I showed and did not plan very far. But certainly my initial idea was kumquat-fixated and I likely presumed it would continue like that. However, nemitz and elpse were always in it, even if they were called odz and [unspecified] at first. The memory is rather vague, but I drew in pencil-only, free-floating comic panels to be scanned and laid out just as they were on web-pages, free of print restrictions, up to a certain point before I got stuck, and then after about four years (which seemed very long at that time but to me now a fairly short interval) I redrew them all the first time, and provided a resolution without one necessarily having existed already, and, for another first time able to think past that, I continued with what the complementary-colored-buffoons were doing.
