“Freedom And Failure (Mother’s Day Morning)”


This is #020 of “The Lloyd Servant Show,” and we see now why there was no show with the staged joyful healing and restoration of everyone’s beloved pie maker, Miss Betty Mae Butler! She is no longer held captive and manipulated by evil. Somewhere she is safe and truly getting healed and restored.

…Yet, only this chapter is ended. There is still more plot to unfold, more loose ends to tie up! Can you tell?!?

For now, I can only say that looks can be deceiving, even in hidden or obscured images, and stereotyped images can often conceal something much more wicked and sinister! (And remember, the last panel does take place in a temporary television studio where there are sure to be special lights and scenery!)

“The events depicted in this comic strip are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental. The similarity of the empty warehouse and an empty tomb are indeed intentional, not merely coincidental!

Thanks, everyone!

More to follow for sure! Until then…Godspeed, Miss Betty Mae! Godspeed, Miss Gladys Louise!

I will be making available for download soon a PDF document with all of the pages for this chapter of “The Lloyd Servant Show.” It didn’t really occur to me to do that until today! Seriously! I’m eager to see how the whole 20 pages will look when combined together, and I hope you are too!

“Saturday Evening 7:15PM (Before Mother’s Day)”

This is #019 of “The Lloyd Servant Show,” as we are still stepping back in time a bit to the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day…

Such a contrast in lives, wouldn’t you say? Next week should have the exciting conclusion to this chapter of a truly bizarre tale!

We will find out whether or not Miss Billie will be able to say, “Welcome to ‘The Hopelessly Lost,’ Dearie! Ha! Ha! HAA!!!”

“The events depicted in this comic strip are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.”

“Saturday Evening 7PM (Before Mother’s Day)”

So let’s step back in time a bit to the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day…

…The Saturday evening after the broadcasting of the show where Miss Gladys Louise Brickle said on television that she would donate her winning “Lottery For Life Sweepstakes” ticket to Bradley Martin (“Your Servant Of The Lloyd”) and his wife Bradeena (“Your Angel of Modesty”).

…The Saturday evening after we discovered that Miss Louise Brickle was more than she appeared to be and had discovered the secret of the warehouse at the end of Raleigh Avenue.

…The Saturday evening before what was to be the biggest television ratings bonanza as Miss Betty Mae Butler, Miracle Apple Pie Baker, was shown completely recovered due to viewer donations and “Special Lloyd Servant Prayers”.

…The Saturday evening that could change the course of apple pies, television, and civilization as we know it!!!

First, let’s take a visit to the parking lot behind Thirty-One West Main where we discover a surprising secret alliance! You knew Helena Montgomery was an evil annoyance from the letters that she has written in “Dear Nickel Boy Graphics,” but had you imagined this?!? Who would have known one missing little hyphen, one slight sophisticated pause could reveal such treachery?!? Nice going Mr. Chandler! But will the headlines in the newspaper read “Too Little, Too Late”?!?

Coming up soon, while still stepping back in time a bit, we take a visit to the warehouse at the end of Raleigh Avenue!

“The events depicted in this comic strip are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.”

 

“Near Facebook Crash Due To ‘Spokeschick’ Photo!”


Now wait just a minute! How can one barely known cartoonist practically cripple a huge enterprise like Facebook? But this is not the first time that Nickel Boy Graphics has been wrongly accused. (Remember this?)

So looking at the newspaper’s front page, there must have been a few thing happening between “Endless Chatterbox Or Espionage Commander?!?” and today!

Why else would Bradley Martin (“Doctor Reverend Pastor Lloyd Servant”) cancel a show that was sure to be a ratings chart blockbuster? What could have been better than a show about the amazing recovery of Miss Betty Mae Butler, the Miracle Apple Pie Baker, on Mother’s Day? What’s more American than Mom and Apple Pie?!?

More to follow as we step back slightly in time to see what lead up to this unexpected turn of events!

“The events depicted in this comic strip are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.”

However the Mother’s Day “Spokeschick” is not fictitious! Check her (or him) out on Facebook!
 

“Endless Chatterbox Or Espionage Commander?!?”


This is #016 of “The Lloyd Servant Show,” and it certainly does look like appearances can indeed be deceiving! Too bad no one ever asked Miss Gladys what she did before she quit her job to stay home with her kitties and watch “The Lloyd Servant Show”!

(By the way, did you know that Julia Child, the great chef, had a career in espionage during World War II? She worked in the Office of Strategic Services, the predecessor of the CIA!)

That endless chatterbox act was just part of her cover, and it may have even kept her safe from whatever weird hypnotic effects the television show seems to have! Miss Gladys Louise Brinkle, you are full of surprises!

Hopefully no one is upset by her rather strong use of language (“My Aunt Fanny!”) or that she is carrying a gun (what looks to be a WWII Luger)!

Hopefully the rescue of Miss Betty Mae is just around the corner! Will Miss Gladys succeed? Is Miss Betty Mae going to be okay? (The part about clean clothes and no more drugs did not sound good!) Will everything end with a huge “Miracle Pie Throwing Fight” in the warehouse?!?

More to follow!
