Hembeck Strip Epilogue

Back in early December, I began running a portion of Fred Hembeck's comic strip "Between The Panels," which was later expanded into 1980's "Abbott & Costello Meet The Bride of Hembeck (#3)" from Fantaco. I continued the strip in April, but still didn't finish. I thought I'd finally wrapped it up this July, but missed two related panels toward the end of the book. I think that there's enough exposition to catch folks up for the jokes to play, so I'll offer no further commentary.

For those coming in late, here are links to the original posts:

Day/Strip Eight
Day/Strip Nine
Day/Strip Ten
Day/Strip Eleven

And if you enjoy these, feel free to visit Fred Hembeck's Personal Website. The full strip and a great many more are available in print form within THE NEARLY COMPLETE ESSENTIAL HEMBECK ARCHIVES OMNIBUS TP, now available from Image Comics. Don't blame anyone else for the shabby coloring though, as that's all me.
