More Than a Coincidence

More than a coincidence

This is one of the silliest (stupidest) strips I've ever done, but I have to get those out of the way.

Toy Story, the original, is one of my favourite films of all time. The sequel was OK, and I'm sure the new one is a solid film as well, but they will never be able to re-capture the magic of the first attempt. I think that as a rule, or more as a concept, sequels can never be as good as the original. This is where you meet the characters for the first time, learn them and about them, fall in love or get to hate them. First films are first dates: always exciting and full of possibilities. You might get more action on the next few dates but some of the excitement is gone, because you lose a lot of the narrative. In 9 out of 10 times my favourite part of any film is the beginning, and in 10 out of 10 times the best film of the franchise is the first.

Oh, about the sex stuff? I'm still getting over the baby project from earlier this week.
