F16 - Blair Necessities by jbwarner86 F16 - Blair Necessities by jbwarner86
The frights continue! Here's the first half of a two-week Forever 16 story from October 1999, back when The Blair Witch Project was teetering somewhere between indie success story and national punchline. Joel, Aaron, and Steve want to take a crack at discovering their own local legend - Ola Varmlanning was a real person who lived in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in the late 19th century, and he loved playing tricks on people. His gravesite really is unmarked too, which seems to lend itself well to a horror movie spoof...

The angles in these strips are really cool, you should try more of this instead of standard stale medium shots like a Kevin Smith film

Nice "Blair Witch" spoof, Jesse! Kudos on adding an actual folk tale to the story =D

Oh, I do like this one. Anything that pokes fun at Blair Witch is okay by me. ;)

Jocelyn pranking 911? Now THAT would be a funny storyline to see.

I love how they complain that they're lost, and then Tina just casually jogs by them. ROFL

Strangely, the first I heard of The Blair Witch Project was when Cartoon Network parodied them thru Scooby-Doo, coincidentally during a time I tuned into SD to see why its so popular.

The thing that really strikes me about these (besides the fact that it's your typical style of gag, which is always entertaining) is that they're three panels instead of four like most of your Forever 16 stuff. Looking at these makes me think about the important of number-of-panels in a comic strip- these gags in particular would not work in four panels, nor would certain gags you've done in four-panel strips work in three-panel ones.

That was more of a cosmetic choice than a storytelling choice - I wanted each panel to be square so it'd look like frames from a home video. True, it did require me to write slightly different kinds of gags. I very rarely attempt three-panel daily strips in Forever 16, but it was a necessity for what I was hoping to accomplish here.
