I'm not sure if this has been said already, but...

Oh no!

Monkey Town has turned into (gulp) VOLTRON!

I feel so much cleaner now that the McCloudites have been dissolved. Plus, now I'm allowed to post on other subjects again.

Now, onto the meat of the post...

Voltron? seems less Voltron than Ultraman (though I did like voltron). remember, in voltron, the enemies usually came pre-packaged supersized, and that was why the voltron team had to make the big robot, whereas ultraman just had the ability to become huge.

All of McCloud's monkey aren't monkeys, so I thought I'd get away with it.

Mr Reinhardt, I think we already covered that in the other monkey thread, and yes.

...am I the only person (yet) who suspect this will end with that "voice of God" telling everyone to quit monkeying around?

Yup! That "stop" sure sounds Godly to me!

Deus Ex Monkeytown!

Oh yeah, is it a private joke of Scott's to have "Super Colossal Ultra Hero Monkey" spell S.C.U.H.M.?

Is it the voice of God, or is it the voice of...McCloud

I hope Flakey Foontomato's wacky religious cult (of which I was a member for about five minutes before I became I hunted heretic) hasn't given Scott a God complex.

No crossing threads! Otherwise we'll get a whole bunch of people misquoting the line near the end of Ghostbusters about crossed streams, remember it now? And besides, the REAL point behind the cult gag was that if anyone deserves veneration like that, it's Scott.

But, hey, has anyone else noticed that Monkey Town looks a lot like the city where Zot lives (whatever its name is)? Maybe this is the city after the devos took control.

Ya mean that cult thing was all a gag? Gee, I better call off the dogs, before my agents take you out. I wouldn't want the blood of the innocent of my hands.

But seriously, folks...I'm wondering if it is the voice of God, how will Scott draw him? Will he look like George Burns? Charlton Heston? A grey bearded orthodox rabbi from the old country with a body-builder's physique? Scott McCloud?

Or will Scott commit the ultimate blasphemy, angering creationists far and wide, and portray the All-Mighty as (gasp) simian?

After all, does the law not state...Ape shall not kill ape!

Well, logically, yes. If God created man in his own image, than it follows suite that in an anthropomorphic world populated by monkies, that thier creator would look like a monkey. Of course, in the Jewish tradition, where God is never visually portrayed, that point would be moot.

However, if Scott DOES give us a monkey-like God, it'll sure upset the bible thumpers out there. I just hope he's not hauled into a court somewhere in the deep south, especially since Clarence Darrow is dead. And don't think it couldn't happen. Remember what those nuts in Florida did to Mike Diana?

'Tain't gonna happen, Rip. He's livin in Southern California, the wackiness capital of the world. I once read a statistic that said that a new monkey god was invented every twelve hours in LA (My source? "Cult leaders monthly". It's a little bit of an underground paper, but surprisingly well written).

My thinking is based less on biblical precedents and more on the fact that having a monkey god would allow for more use of a specific word (which I'm not going to mention but I'm sure you all can guess.)

Well, they're not gonna come after him in CA. However, if he journeys into the bible belt, he should be careful. You've got a lot of yokel judges and lawmen down there who never heard of the Bill of Rights.

Of course, I'm exagerating a bit here, but the fact is you never can tell with people who take religion very seriously, to the point of addiction. Of course, a Monkey Jesus would piss them off even more.

Replace communion wafers with dried banana chips?

Personaly, I like where Scott is going with this, but I'm a heathen.

As a fellow resident of those parts, I must refute that statistic as a gross exaggeration.

Every 36 hours. Tops.

"The coastline runs west, and then turns north up to the misty bay of San Francisco, which the Guide describes as a ``good place to go. It's very easy to believe that everyone you meet there is also a space traveller. Starting a new religion for you is just their way of saying `hi'." -- SLATFATF, ch 15, by Douglas Adams.

I question the validity of a simiomorphic representation of the cosmic All!

I invoke rational epistomology to question the necessity of a creator-monkey-god in a universe governed by immutable natural law!

If I had been making this comic (it would have been horrible, but that's beside my point), I would have changed its ending so that there was no monkey god, just to disappoint everyone. How cruel of me.

Perhaps it could have been a third giant monkey on a high-rise building, or space aliens, or the police in a helicopter, or a rival nation's military with that form of ebola that can transmit to monkeys through the air, or... or...something.

Laimes,
Wright.
