The Small Council (Comic)


Last time on Shinny, our hero got a pair of tickets to the Caps game and learned she had to choose between her boyfriend and dad who would come with her. We now join her– deep in thought, as she is visited by … well, you’ll see.


The shoulder angels, folks. Good Sasha and Bad Sasha counsel Shinny on whom she should bring with her. One is all about enthusiasm and togetherness; obviously he prefers Shinny’s plucky boyfriend. The sullen devil Sasha and his pitchfork-stick prefers Shinny’s frumpy and grumpy dad.

I know who I’d pick. What camp are you in? And how adorable is Ovi in that final panel?

    Sasha Minor is cuter in the final panel. I am enjoying this comic series.

    Oh yeah, here’s a bonus. Since I probably watched that once scene from “The Emperor’s New Groove” like, a hundred times while drawing this.

    Best. Comic. Yet. Keep ’em coming!

    Oh my God, Good Sasha and Bad Sasha! Amazing! I love the bonus panel. (Good Sasha totally hums his own theme music, too.)

    Мальчик немой means Boy is mute

    AUGH. I was worried the script might be wrong. What’s the correct translation?? I’ll fix the comic.

    dumb and mute are synonymous in English (though a bit off color)

  • Slava Malamud

    Э-э-э, паренек тупой маленько. Бери папу. Или сама иди. Я бы сам пошел.

    Not in Russian, though. That’s where Google Translate gets you.

    Gives a whole new meaning to the idea of “Good Sasha, Bad Sasha” hahahaha
