So in the grand tradition of sitcoms, I bring you the very first Atomic Laundromat clip show. From Tvtropes.org,
An episode which consists mainly of fragments (clips) of previous episodes. Usually has a theme: for example, to highlight a character’s development over the years, or show the relationship between characters. Sometimes, however, it won’t be shown that the events take place in the past, but they are shown as appearing directly one after another.
Clip shows can be used to stretch the budget — they utilize footage already shot, thus needing only narrative glue money for the episode. In that sense, they are similar to a Bottle Episode. When a clip show is used to sum up a season or storyline, it is a Recap Episode.
Anyhow, I’ll be in New York to celebrate my birthday next weekend, and I needed an extra strip in a pinch – so it seemed like a good idea to fill the gap. Why right now? Well, considering we are meeting David’s mom on Wednesday, I didn’t want to break that little introduction up…
So enjoy the next few comics while I’m away!
By the way, Japan Donors – I just dropped the last batch of mailings at the Post Office. If you are in the US, please allow 10-12 days for delivery. If you are abroad, please allow about 3 weeks for delivery. if you haven’t gotten it by that time, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all for your generosity. I certainly bit off a little bit more than I could chew with all the sketches, but I was happy to do it for a good cause.
