Or maybe we're just idiots? We here at the Bridge finally paid birthday tribute to Draw-Bridge exile Nathan "Power Out" Schreiber yesterday, almost a full week after the actual anniversary of his birth. All except for me, who was away yesterday, so here I am posting my birthday tribute to the Schreib a full-on week late. Yay me, I win!
For those unfamiliar with what I've drawn here, This is Russ, a clock-obsessed supporting character from Nathan's Xeric grant-winning Power Out Comic. The day after a massive power out knocks out all electricity on the East Coast, Russ, who looks forward all year to giving a speech about the role his hometown played in the invention of standardized time, posits a theory that since the power has stopped, perhaps all time has stopped as well. It's at this point during his speech that Nathan's sock-challenged lead Justin wakes up from having passed out.
It's too bad that a power outage doesn't really stop time, as at least then I'd have a better excuse for this late celebration of Nathan's special day. Well, if there had actually been a power outage, I might've. Guess I'm just an idiot.
