Here's strip 61 of Dude in Distress, and some things just aren't as romantic as they are in the movies.

A few other things of note . . .

I updated strip 23 to change Femme's dialogue. She now says "flare glare" instead of the more generic "laser vision."

And contents for the print edition of Episode 1 have gone to the printer. I expect it to be ready to order at IndyPlanet.com by the end of the month. I will include an announcement as soon as it's ready to order.

What film are they referring to?

I am afraid I have no clue either.

1978 Superman, the flying date scene, specifically Lois' voice-over.

There were so many versions made of Superman, I do not think I have seen them all.
That one does not ring a bell for me.

The '78 Superman is the definitive Superman, and still one of the best superhero movies ever made.

Just did a search, I had definitely watched it back then, but mostly forgotten it since.
I did find an extract with that flying scene, and definitely could not remember it.

Absolutely the best Superman movie ever made. Christopher Reeve was perfect both as Superman and Clark Kent!

"Easy, miss. I've got you."

"You've got me! Who's got you?!"

"I hope this doesn't put you off flying. It really is the safest form of transportation."

Wait, what ? So it's not Aladdin ? Y'know the part where Jasmine and Aladdin are flying all over the world on Carpet, singing arguably the best song in a Disney movie ever ( " A whole New World ") ? Crap !

Sorry. Gonna have to disagree with you. "Prince Ali" is the best song on the Aladdin soundtrack. (And, yes, I have several Disney soundtracks, with Aladdin being one of my faves.)

But I did skew purple with the night sky because I thought it gave things a bit of a fairy tale feel, so you picking up a Disney vibe makes sense.

* SMH * Negative. " Prince Ali " isn't even top 3 on Aladdin. It goes " A Whole New World", " One Jump Ahead " and " Friend Like Me. "

You must not have had the pleasure of seeing the Aladdin parade at the then-MGM Studios back in 1993. They had a full chorus version of "Prince Ali" blaring on loop during the parade, and I don't think the song's ever gotten completely out of my head since then!

But "One Jump Ahead" and "Friend Like Me" are great tracks. (I'm not a fan of ballads, so "Whole New World" gets a lower ranking because of that bias.)

I'll have to find and scan some of my old Aladdin pics I did from around that time (ballpoint pen and pencil). Maybe post them to my DeviantArt account.
