Going the Distance 037: Soak It Up

So this is probably it for GTD for a while. We ran through the new ideas, used the submissions and posted some behind-the-scenes content. Nick has the Tuesday slot locked down now, though, so keep an eye out for his posts. And we’ll still accept (and post) submissions if you are struck by creative lightning on a comic idea.

In Going the Distance, our main character, “You,” has to manage to make his way to delicious cake. Sounds simple, right? But there are deadly spikes to deal with, and a host of other problems that appear each time. Let’s just say You fails more often than You succeeds. After all, it wouldn’t be much of a quest if You could just get cake whenever You wanted, would it?

Look, this is a very specific reference. And it involves some bad language. It’s also pretty hilarious if you’ve never seen it. It’s just two stoners trying to figure out a Pokemon movie, and there’s a Snorlax, and…look, just click here to watch it. You’ve been warned.

Any time I can make a Jafar reference, it’s a good day. This was a very simple idea, but apparently things weren’t hard enough for You already and we had to ramp it up.

So many questions. If the spikes are delicious, why is You eating the wall? What makes the cake so deadly? What makes the spikes so tasty? Why didn’t we ever do a comic where the spikes became teeth and chomped on our hero? We may never know the answers to any of these.

This is another idea that was left on the cutting-room floor, because it doesn’t make much sense. Sure, You might be lobbing the dynamite at the deadly spikes, but those three lines make the arc look like it’s going right at the delicious cake. And that’s just not an option.

Lee figured that from a top-down view, the obstacle course wasn’t that hard at all. Sometimes life is just a matter of perspective.

This is another example of a comic that didn’t make the cut. Unless You is Inspector Gadget or Mr. Fantastic, I’m not sure this is possible. And this comic is about reality, dammit!
