Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! (12/21/08)


I got a kick out of this strip, mostly because of my love for A Christmas Carol and affection for anything having to do with that classic story. I also couldn’t help but notice some of the strip’s minor details. By the time the Ghost of Christmas Present shows up, Scrooge should be feeling some remorse for what he’s done. But the stand-in seems to be pleased with his handiwork, as evidenced by his slight smile in panel three and his unambiguous “hee-hee” in panel four. That’s taking Scroogery to a whole new level, even for a character who typically fills the role of a mad scientist.
