Holy mother of the world!! WHat the hell did Erishkigal do to Inanna!!! No more SEX? What will the world DO??? Play computer games until the end I suppose … hm, that’s a pretty good description of what I think limbo must be like.
Doing this section was a breath of fresh air for me after doing all the other pages of the Long Weekend which involve a lot of hatching and much more strict formatting and structure. These 13 or so pages I got to be a lot more stretchy and flexible and experiment with layout a lot more, they were also a lot quicker to draw (being a lot more cartoony) which was a lot of fun. Any ol’ comicer can tell you that it’s a slog to do long-form comics, so I’ll take all the variety I can get! The myth of Inanna is only alluded to in Craig San Roque’s original text for the Long Weekend, I just jumped at the opportunity to mix it up a little … there is a point to it, you might have to wait a little before it becomes more obvious.
