Part 3 of the series, and another opportunity for our roommate, Dingdong David, to show off his acting chops. It’ll take a might fine performance to convert The Dragoons of Santa Ana into something even moderately watchable.
This strip’s sort of anarchronistic, eh? I hope y’all are old enough to recognize that there existed a time when movies could be “taped over.” Maybe Mulholland Dr. wasn’t the best choice; it wasn’t released until well into the DVD era. It is, however, a fine example of over-the-top artiness. And unlike Brazil before it, it’s probably not entertaining unless you’re really into analysis or lesbian dream sequences.
I’m hesitant to link to our ugly early work, but I need to remind you that Stan’s battleaxe has made a previous appearance. Let this be an opportunity to observe how much our art has improved. But Will, don’t let this boost your ego. The second I catch you slacking, I’m replacing you altogether with cheap asian laborers.
Cheap Asian labor? If you’re okay with the drawing style they’re likely to utilize, then go ahead. On the other hand, anime girls are way hotter than anything I can render. Heck, with their giant eyes and perfect skin, they may even be sexier than real girls.
