The Lord of the Clones - The Challenge Part 1


"The Cave's changed. I hear it in the kitchen. I taste it in the mead. I smell it in the air. The Dwarves are dragonless and bored. We shall go out and make some trouble."  Tassin, leader of the DCS.

Starring:
Ninja Cloner 
Alex J. Cavanaugh
Lord Baldernot (He Who Must Not Be Shaved)
Mark Koopmans
Lord Baldernot's Hair Knitters
Tassin, father of Sessin; Sessin, son of Tassin; Pancholin, grandson of Manolin and Milin, son of Carmelita
Special appearance of S.A.M. the Ninja Muse

Written by S.A.M and the DCS.
Produced and Directed by: the DCS.

***The Lord of the Clones, the Musical, is brought to you by Father Dragon (it's his cave) and his amazing and MOST creative dwarves (that's us!). Actors will be paid in gummy bears, except the clones. Dwarves have Ninja Insurance with unlimited Ninja Responsibility. That's in case we have to pay S.A.M a ransom to let Alex go at the end of the show. Legal claims, it's all S.A.M.'s fault. Take her!

The Challenge, Part 1

Baldernot's private beach.
Technical problems with the chair. Similar manufacturer.


Once He Who Must Not Be Shaved managed to get off his dancing throne, he and his Hair Knitters headed to the Dragon Cave. Intel said Ninja Cloner was there visiting his good friend, Father Dragon.

  1. Love it! *applauding* The cave is beautiful (kudos to the set designer), everyone's remembered their lines, and the scene ends with a great cliffhanger -- what's really under the ninja outfit???

  6. You renamed the blog! And now it features more comic strip. But sadly, even less cowbell...

    ReplyDelete

    1. What do you mean by cowbell? We sometimes fall short on urban slang. Guess it may be something to do with message substance. If it is that, then on Wednesday you will find out why there is no thought provoking input for now.

  16. So Mark is the evil one? Great comic strip. The Clone Lord seems much more collected and calm. . .

    1. Ah... I wouldn't say evil, per se... more like Lord Baldernot is finally getting the chance to shine :)

      Delete
    2. That shine is just his bald head...

      Delete
    3. ...And Lord Baldernot's favorite movie.... The Shining. :)

      Delete
    4. Mark, the evil one? No, I would rather say he is the smiling one and Alex the serious one.

  17. "Soon the world will witness the fall of the black pajamas" is probably the BEST line I've ever read!!!

    Hilarious, Al, and I am truly honored that you made me a part of this dance-off. I haven't looked this good in years :)

    *Can't* wait to see what the Ninja has up his black, satin sleeve :)

    THANK YOU so much :)

    1. She's not that sneaky. Only my wife sees me naked!

    2. Sorry, River, no ninja or anyone else naked in the Dragon Cave, except the dragon of course, but that's only because dragons don't wear clothes. ;)

    1. I don't believe the ninja would strip under any circumstance and least of all in front of the ninja muse. That little devil is dangerous.

  44. This is wonderfully clever and funny! I'm not sure if I'm rooting for Lord Baldernot or the Ninja . . . it's too hard to decide. The line 'the one who must not be shaved" had me laughing. Thank you, Al!
