I think this week’s strip is the closest to free association that we have ever come. Eastin and I are both nerds, but our nerd-osity doesn’t always intersect, so when he stepped away for a week all the bizarre things that I have wanted to put in the strip came pouring out.

Cap as an S&M plumber? Check.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon meets Super Mario Bros? Check.

Doctor Who references? Check.

Norse mythology? Yes please.

I honestly don’t even remember half the stuff I was pulling from anymore.

I titled this week’s strip “The Quest”, but that is only because my original title “Ryan Vomits Out Things He Has Seen” wasn’t as smooth.
