Antarctica Asylum - 12 by ForgetfulRainn Antarctica Asylum - 12 by ForgetfulRainn
"Literary Theory"

Pencilled, inked, coloured, written, and digitally lettered and edited with Photoshop by me.

All those words actually exist, and you can find them all in Gérard Genette (who exists too) in his book (which also exists) called "Figures III", published in 1972 in France (in French), and in 1980 for the English translation (which, exists, but that I didn't use, so maybe my translation doesn't exactly match with the official one). The quote belongs to Genette, from that book, translated by me.

Gwen, Stanley, and Molly, all belong to me.

I remember you tried to insult me with these words, Nicolas! I know realized you were test-driving your joke on me :lol:
very good strip! I really like it when aspects of our daily lives are inspiration for art. Turn those weird, fancy words into a funny strip, it's genius :lol:

Thank you! And yes, that strip came from that idea, which I found by using them on you! I get great ideas discussing with you! You're my Muse of sorts!

Making strips! Where do you think all that stuff comes from? Hard work, I says, hard work! And besides, I'm reading tons of books for my exams...

Articulate penguins are not a rarity. They often refer to themselves as the "Big Dog Daddy" of the cultural elite.

:lol: I think this is my favourite one so far, though I've never heard of Genette. You're going to continue making these, right?

Thank you! Yes, I have taken the project back! There is at least 3 to 4 new strips planned, and I will be making more. Expect about one a week, at least, and probably more. Glad to have you among my readers! :D

Don't worry, this one is similar to the previous strip in more ways than one... All the terms here are part of Genette's terminology for a more effective literary analysis. Just enjoy those complicated words as cool sounding puzzles! And if you're curious about their actual meanings... you can always ask me and see if I answer!

Thanks for the comment!
