The other shoe just dropped at last. Over at Whispered Apologies, Alexander Danner has written the canon version of the comic featuring the Deadmouse art I chose when I was writing a contribution there.
There was an odd mix-up. Normally, a pool of writers choose a piece of art from the submissions archive, and create a comic from it. Unbeknownst to me, Alexander had already made a comic with that art when I sent mine to Ryan, and Alexander's strip was queued to load next.
Ryan offered to post them both, but I didn't want to nick any spotlight from whoever had dibs. But Ryan said he didn't want my joke to be lost. So I offered to load my version as a bonus strip in my own archives at PartiallyClips, and do a new Whispered Apologies at a later date.
I wouldn't call the mix-up exactly an accident, because that piece of art is really compelling. I'm not surprised it leaped out at both Alexander and me when we scanned the submissions. Deadmouse's art is tremendously impressive.
