Hey! That reminded me of this thing I sloshed it out at a 24-hour comic marathon when I was a freshman at Pratt in 2002. (I think I lasted five of those hours.) It’s pretty lame and the idea doesn’t go anywhere, especially with that dumb caption I tacked on at the end, but it struck me as a somewhat darker twist on the same idea you had….

It's interesting how many of us, when we were starting out, had our characters talking to the reader. I'm not sure if it was the influence from reading a lot of Crumb, etc. or Understanding Comics or if it was some personal attempt to connect and make it real. I'm not saying it's always a bad thing but it seems most cartoonists eventually stop trying to break the fourth wall and just get on with telling a story. P.S. Pratt must be a good school because you got a LOT better. (Although this piece does have a bit of that unique and timeless innocence that I still see in your work.)
