I've read thru a TON of your gallery and I want to compliment your sense of comic timing! Drama is E-Z, but Comedy is HARD. And you have a definite talent for balancing the story with the Funny. Keep it Up!!!

So my chief complaint with the dubbed adaptations produced courtesy of Jordan Haro (aka DeadTom22, aka Bard71, aka “Production Overdrive Patient Zero”) and Sandra Espinoza (aka DustyOldRoses, aka “Dueling Bomango Banjos”) is that we’ve long since reached a point where the quality and number of videos is in serious danger of exhausting my capacity for praise verbiage. I mean, they’re as delightfully fun as they ever were, and they’re GOOD WORK, too, but come on, right? They’re spoiling us with this stuff. Not that I’m about to beg them to STOP, of course...

It’s also kinda cheap of me to call them “dubs”, really, since Jordan adds both audio AND visual flourishes to the original material. But, for the sake of shorthand...Oh, and I believe the “blooper reel” is the first time I’ve drawn FOR a dub, rather than the other way around—which makes me feel like I’m finally contributing something to the process instead of sitting back and being amused by Jordan and Sandra’s hard work :D But seriously, this was a fun change of pace, and if you folks enjoy it, might be something we do more of in the future (or we might anyway?)

My deepest thanks to Jordan and Sandra once again for kicking some audio-visual ass with Bomango! Not only is it good old-fashioned enjoyment, but for me, it’s a jolt of encouragement and inspiration every time, and a reminder of what I love so much about creating comics and characters: it’s alive and moving, it’s fun and it’s funny, it’s drama and silliness, it’s VELVEETA!

Bomango 100: Promised Break
previous:  Bomango 99: Truly Never by VanHeist

Right, let’s get this out of the way:

100 pages! WOOOOOO!

I apologize if you were expecting any bells and whistles at the hundred page mark. It seemed a little on the nose to do so (though I am indeed proud of reaching the numerical milestone), but I personally find this pleasant enough: she’s a’comin’ BACK, kiddo. You’re not so bad.

As for Andy? She’s coming BACK. He’s IN on it now, whatever “it” is, and for all the answers this might lead to, and all the cuddly blue critters, the person at the center of it all seemed ready to bite his head off just a short while ago. It’s not the most comfortable position to be left in.

Lest you think we’ve reached 100 pages only to coast on that for awhile, buckle up...

This would be the “2” to go with the other “2” that Gogo’s been putting together.

I assure you that Andy’s a lot more unsettled and unnerved than he appears, but it’s hard to feel anything but the Warm and Fuzzies when you have been chosen as a “safe space” for little blue critters coping with uncertainty about cows.

Bomango 98: Licker and Lies
previous:  Bomango 97: Nasty WTCB by VanHeist next:  Bomango 99: Truly Never by VanHeist

story gallery: vanheist.deviantart.com/galler…
____


Some astute readers have correctly predicted this eventuality:
That somebody was gonna get licked by a cow.

If you’ve never had the privilege, here’s a way for you to try it out at home: Find yourself a nice bunch of newspaper (or a bunch of those junk mail ads or shopping circulars will do), wrap it into a nice, heavy roll, give it a good dunk in some Windex (or an ammonia-based household cleaner), and then slide the whole mess upside your face or head. Maybe take a whiff of the wastebasket while you do so, or a sniff of some compost.  

I’ve personally found the experience to be neither pleasant nor especially unpleasant; like Pablo, it’s just unsettling in a peculiar way, and rather unlike being licked in the face by a dog (though cows do seem to enjoy the act of licking whatever wanders within range).

Oh, and cows also provide biological evidence that Gogo is not in Kans—-er, Oz, I guess—anymore.

Danged useful creatures, them cows.

Bomango 97: Nasty WTCB

There are puns, and then there are puns festooned with neon lights, bells, whistles, sirens, pipe organs and circus clowns, and “udder” puns are one of them. Get your fill, because you don’t need MY help with that.

Potential pun-ography aside (hyuk hyuk), the biology of cattle is NOT weird, but it is, but it ISN’T, but it most certainly IS, which is why the presence of wang-teated crotch-boobs (and cows themselves) has completely arrested the progress of the inquisition that was about to take place earlier, and this is probably for the best.

You might (quite reasonably) be rolling your eyes at the prospect of things taking a narrative detour to look at cows. I promise this is going somewhere, trust me. I can also tell you that I’ve been working hard not only on the next few pages, but that the story close ahead gets...kinda wild. It’s taken some doing, and I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me here, but I hope you enjoy the results.

I haven’t yet. I admit it’s not something I’ve given much thought to or had much interest in. Maybe sometime in the future?

Hey have to say love your stuff of Gogo and all its some of the most best work I've seen and even love some of the older stuff of when she was younger. These also brings up question is there place I can find some if not all your old work of Gogo and all I see some if your galley and all but I feel like its not all of it as mention she was in some of your comic's before hand and just wish to know if there site or place I can get the older work and all.
