Six - The Batrachonesian Amphora


     I think it would be safe to say that I did the entire preceding six weeks of comics only so I could draw today's pages. Oh, and anyone wants to check Howlett's translation of the inscription, let me know if you come up with the same phrase he did.

     As for the phrase itself, it's been in our family since the mid-70s when my sister Lisa discovered it in a novel Galaxy magazine was serializing. Since then, I've found that I don't care much for the writings of the author who first penned the phrase--any SF fans out there know where it's from?--but as soon as I knew I was gonna do a story with frog people in it, I knew I'd hafta work it in. And now I have.
