Sorry this page is late! I was super sick Saturday/Sunday/Monday/most of Tuesday/Still not completely well today, but I got the comic done and HERE IT IS.

That middle panel might be familiar to some readers. Specifically those readers familiar with terrible documentary-style horror movies from the 1970s.

And look! They’re finally getting into Dogpatch proper!

I hadn’t heard of The Legend of Boggy Creek before. The middle panel made me think of the Honey Island Swamp monster. I’m sure that’s much further south than the residents of Dogpatch would ever be comfortable going. Maybe they’re related.

…Two sets of wings?

Technically, if I remember my angel-ology, that would make Gabe a Cherub, not strictly an Angel, and definitely not a Seraph (who have three).

On the other hand, I love the touches of red and brown, making one pair more ‘earthly’, while the other pair is less-detailed and pure-white, making them appear almost like a different creature altogether.

Gabe’s bio says that s/he is a Power. A quick web search doesn’t turn up much about them aside from their placement in the hierarchy (mid-level, exact placement varies by theologian) and their role as warriors. I did turn up one description involving red wings though.

I don’t know anything about Fouke, or Boggy Creek, or Ozark Howlers, but that middle panel is awesome. I agree with the wallpaper comment!

Oh, and there’s a typo – it says “moutains” in panel three.

Hope you’re feeling better!
