I know I’ve been bitching about it for a better part of a week now, but the episode ‘A Carnival Comes to Town’ really put a bad taste in my mouth (pun not intended).
Admittedly the episode dug up some old ghosts of mine that I thought were dead and buried, but it looks as though I hadn’t quite exorcised that baggage. That’s my issue and I own it. That being said, fuck Carlos. That’s right, fuck ‘em.
I’m seriously questioning any and all of Carlos’ intentions.
Listen, I get being into something so much that one blocks out the rest of the world. I get it. I love drawing, and I have zero free time, so if I actually get time to sit down and sketch something out, it is in your best interest not to bother me. However, Carlos has completely fallen down the rabbit hole and there is clearly no intent to even try getting back to Night Vale. Carlos loves scientific curiosities to the exclusion to all else. I even question whether he truly has feelings for Cecil at all. For an entire year he dismissed or downright ignored Cecil and it wasn’t until a nearly being killed by the civilization under lane five that he bothered to even talk to Cecil in a familiar or friendly tone. Come on, that’s some first year psychology shit right there.
And Earl as a potential love-triangle? Fuck Earl. That’s right, fuck ‘em.
They’ve been friends since childhood, and Earl can’t pick up phone to let Cecil know he isn’t dead? That’s some shady shit right there.

I fully realize I have invested too much thought into fictional characters and that drama makes for good storytelling…so yeah.
Anyway, forgive the lack of polish and/or artistic effort. I had some free time to draw this evening, so I thought I’d squeeze out an idea that floating around my brain meat. It looks not so great but I’m just stoked I cranked out an eight panel mini-comic in and hour and a half. And admittedly halfway through I started giggling at the idea that Cecil wears clip-on sunglasses, but there ya go…
Here’s hoping we get a ‘How Cecil Got His Groove Back’ episode of Night Vale real soon…
