When I originally pitched this idea to friends, they poopooed it saying, "well, in November (2016) this will all be over and it will seem dated." We all know how that turned out...
[insert kooky montage of creating clever protest signs, knitting pussy hats, getting involved in local politics, spending waaaaaaaay too long on Twitter and going down the rabbit hole of monitoring oligarchs' private jet tail numbers....]
In February 2018, a friend said "what ever happened to that octopus idea? You should do that."
Originally it was an animated series that I planned on writing and having other people illustrate. But you know how it is, it's hard enough to work on your own vanity project, let alone someone else's. So in the immortal words of someone I can no longer remember "sometimes magic happens when you say: Fuck it."
So...fuck it. I drew it myself. You can see the entire season from the April Fool’s Day launch with Episode 1 “The Arrival” to Episode 32 “Are You Fucking Kidding Me?” which ended the season at the Midterm Elections.
