Sinbad Comic

Join Sinbad and his merry men as they embark on a dubiously-conceived quest to foil a dubiously-conceived but probably evil plot by the evil vizier Jaffar! Sinbad Comic is a screen-cap comic based on the incredible, incomparable, and inexplicable 1989 Lou Ferrigno film, Sinbad of the Seven Seas.

Sinbad Comic has a new strip every Monday and Thursday.

Sometimes this movie gives wonderful little gifts.

In the movie, this moment is nothing. Nadir serves a meal. That's it. But I noticed that there are a few frames where Sinbad and Kyra look down at their bowls with skepticism, and I pounced on that as being the key to this comic. So I build the whole comic so that it led up to that image as the silent punchline.

Here's where it gave me that gift: it wasn't until I was pretty much done with the writing that I spotted that for a single frame as he's walking away, there's that wonderful image of his mischievous little smile. It makes the whole strip.

It also unlocked his character for me. As I wrote earlier, I had a lot of trouble deciding what to do with Kyra and Nadir, other than the obvious idea that Nadir should be well-spoken. But he clicked for me in this episode: He plays at being an oblivious intellectual, but he's in on the joke.

Thanks, movie.
