Next strip won’t be for a few weeks; I’m briefly hitting pause to start a new job and work up a few Nowhere Band shorts. But the disruption won’t be long.
Cool blog! I have sort of thought of this parallel before.. but it’s always been like I would lean toward a parallel and then decide better of it..
Anyway, thanks for doing all the work. I would also add, though, to further the parallel the prologue in _A Game of Thrones_ which deals with the animal signs of the Houses is very similar to the dreams of Duke of Clarence and Lord Stanley.
Of course we also see here a “Return of the King” motif… which instantly reminds us of Tolkien’s LOTR.. but also, he did a translation of a middle English ballad called “Sir Orfeo” which deals with the same theme..
Good to meet you in cyber-space good sir.
Thanks a lot! Good call on the Clarence/Stanley dreams, too. Interesting stuff…
