Devourer of Planets

Monday, September 29th 2008 by Pat

I gave up on the hobo story arc and drew Galactus, Devourer of Planets. I think Cayleigh asked me if he would eat Pluto. I guess maybe so, but it would take some coaxing… “How do you know you don’t like Pluto if you’ve never tried it?”

I’m not entirely sure why I abandoned the hobo comic but I think it was just too heavy. To be clear, the hobos I see day-to-day aren’t mischievous, train-hoping drifters. They’re scabbier and much less romantic. They smell like Colt 45 strained through weak livers and crusty blue jeans. I think most of them are beyond help or don’t want it. It’s depressing. I’d prefer to think about kittens… and I don’t even like kittens.

    Hobo good piss pants bad. Hobo travel and avoid Glory Hole, Cops, and Railroad Bull’s. They prefer Salvation Army and Beanie Weenie’s. Also Big Rock Candy Mountain’s. Pops

    It is tremendously heavey topic as many of the homeless suffer from some mental illness. Many have left their families feeling helpless but leaving was often the last thing they felt was in their control. That is how I understand it. Sadly many are beyond help and others don’t have the help they need. Yes heavy indeed.
    I don’t like kittens either but they are a soft and fluffy alternate thought.

    Sure, he’d eat it, but it wouldn’t satisfy him. More like a light snack than a meal. Like a carrot stick or a rice cake (and not the good glutinous kind, but the dry styrofoam type).
