Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 14 & 15.



So that's the big thing. 

El Fuego of The Flying Burrito Brothers eventually becomes Dr. Metropolis. 

And it was kind of U.N.C.L.E. Doug's fault.

I toiled over the final panel. I wanted to illustrate El Fuego turning into Senor Metro & then Dr. Metropolis but without saying anything. And this is what I came up with.

Whoa!

Fucking Fenix died?

And U.N.C.L.E. Travis is still talking that shit?

The panel on the bottom of page 13 is a favorite of mine.

In Monkey Squad One issues 10, 11 & 12 I ran a back-up story starring The Flying Burrito Brothers, Seven Bricks Of Fury & The Agents of U.N.C.L.E. titled "Apples & Origins". (You can find them in the archives if you're interested.)

Up until now, Lil' Dougie has only appeared in his own back up stories in issues 3, 6 & 8. This is the first time he's appeared in an actual story!

I imagine the relevance of this story is easily missed.

So, let us travel back to 2010, and the final page from Monkey Squad One #6: 

So, basically, the scene in MS1 Annual #2 is an extension of this scene, but we finally get to meet Professor Metropolis and see him in action. Plus we kind of see why Malcolm Bliss was confused & thought Dr. Metropolis was Professor Metropolis in MS1 #10.

Look, if I cared whether or not it was confusing, I wouldn't have done a parallel dimension/time-travel story!

APPLES & ORIGINS CONTINUES!

Who is Professor Metropolis?

Watchful readers know he first appeared back in MS1 #10 in a flashback with U.N.C.L.E. Kevin.

Also in MS1 #10 we first met Malcolm Bliss and his giant ant, MonsANTo. And throughout the adventure, Malcolm Bliss kept calling Dr. Metropolis, "Professor Metropolis".

But this is the first time we've found out that Professor Metropolis and Malcolm Bliss are from the same Earth.

And some readers might've realized that Professor Metropolis & Malcolm Bliss are then from the same Earth as Fake-Future Brendan & his whole crew that Monkey Squad One visited all the way back in issue #3.

I'm not gonna tell you why that matters, though.

From "The Heavenly Kid" to "Can't Buy Me Love", the clothes-changing-montage is a staple of shitty 80's movies & I LOVE me some shitty 80's movies!

But since I don't know anything about fashion, all of the boys outfits are just copied off of popular current rappers.

I really like how this sequence turned out in the end, but drawing the interior of a department store is a pain in the ass!

Also, there really are $17,000 alligator boots made by Gucci.
