Monty (5/12/09)

05-12-09 (Monty)

The spoiled child is a classic character in comedy (see Üter from The Simpsons) but rarely does he reach the level of maniacal self-absorption that we see in today’s Monty. The bulging eyes and frozen smile of this sadistic, cat hunting child are disturbing, to say the least. The boy’s expression in panel one suggests creepy glee, while his demeanor in panel two reveals an obsessiveness that borders on that of Captain Ahab. I’m not sure what to make of panel three, though, in which the bratty child appears to be nothing more than a comatose version of the Maytag repairman.
