So, that’s the end of the first Corgi Boss story arc! Hopefully
you’ve enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed making it. Actually,
I hope you enjoyed it more than that because there were some days that I
was like, “Ugh…so tired, but must keep drawing.” That said, it’s a nice
feeling to hit a milestone, and I think it’s a good idea to just pause
and take a moment to feel some pride. *silence* OK! Now we can move on
to the next thing.
Regarding the next story, it will pick up where this one left off,
but I think that you’ll find that I’m going to shake things up a little
bit for the crew at the Hobarken Herald. I don’t want to give too much
away by offering you a preview. Instead, I thought I might treat you to
some of the ideas that I’ve rejected for the next story arc. Enjoy!
Pup Reporter: Joe is run down in the street by an
ice cream truck, his screams drowned out by the truck’s tinny speaker
playing “The Entertainer.” As Joe’s soul descends toward hell, some
unfinished business stops him, and he discovers himself reincarnated as a
puppy. Everyone likes him better.
I Am Curious (Old): After an argument about setting
the time on a VCR, Kiara is convinced that Alma doesn’t like her for
some unknown reason. Fortunately, her uncle happens to be a disgraced
nuclear scientist who has a machine that can turn Kiara into an old, so
she can understand why Alma is so cranky. Once Kiara is old, Waldorf and
Statler style comedy ensues.
Big Bunch of Cheeseburgers Day: President
Dumpster-Fire hosts the White House’s “Big Bunch of Cheeseburgers Day.”
It’s a day in which anyone except Joe Flaco can come to White House and
petition the President on an issue. It started when a past President
with no friends and a lot of cheeseburgers invited anyone to come eat
there for free. They do it now in the spirit of openness and
transparency. As each lobbyist asks for help, Dump tells him that he’s
already solved their problem better than they could have hoped. He then
eats all the cheeseburgers.
So, those were some ideas that came close to going into production. Don’t worry though. What I went with is so much better.
Trivia: Soraya AKA the Hawk is a real go-getter. In
addition to being a photographer for the Herald, she is also the class
president of her high school. Not too remarkable until you realize
she’s in college. After she got the presidency via coup d’état, she
declared herself president for life.
