TODAY’S COMIC: “Bloody Carrie”

The inspiration for “Bloody Carrie” came to me while ordering drinks before a Cubs game.  Someone ordered a Bloody Mary. I don’t know why Stephen King’s story popped into my head, but a mash-up was born. The idea that mosquitoes would have a bar where they served bloody drinks seemed funny to me… especially if those drinks possessed interesting attributes.

I wasn’t sure if this strip was too gross or horrific to fit “Skitter”, but I went with it anyway. So far the response has been pretty good. I have other plasma-inspired jokes planned for the mosquitoes.
