Man, Jason Williams continues to knock Barwench Tales out of the park. LOOK at this strip!! WOW!! I’m here to tell you the man lost some major sleep for this one. Show Jason the love, enjoy this great Saturday Barwench Tales!!
I personally love Jason’s attention to detail in his environments and backgrounds!
So, her reputation spread and they wanted someone mean enough to clean up a place, eh?
I suspect “Large Marge’s Barge” is something a bit seedier than another tavern, as even really seedy taverns don’t tend to need to shanghai bar maids. If this is a very disreputable establishment, I sure wouldn’t want to be the first customer to tell Sarah what I expected her to do for a few shekels…
Woah, outstanding work Jason!! The detail is amazing.. There sure is a lot going on in that one panel.. Well done!
what “sergio aragones” type detail. it will take me an hour to digest it.
ha ha ha === a Pirate ship maidenhead with a real live maid
you crack me up
You just made the same mistake as a JEOPARDY! contestant made once. That’s a figurehead with a real live…figure.
Who’s going to pay for that busted front shop window, and why did the guards let a bruiser in like that in the first place?
Something tells me Large Marge is going to find her new “servant” a tad less compliant than she’s used to.
I suspect that that’s a bouncer standing in the window…
Hope so, although the joint seems to prefer anthropological Negroids for the job.
thanks all,this was fun, and actually took some detail out and kinda rushed the coloring a little. i am still actually working more on this image this weekend. i will post the details on the awesome LEGEND OF BILL facebook page
thanks again the kind words!
If I may be so bold, sir, as to suggest: this would make a fantastic wallpaper. Perhaps remove the dialog ballon and finish your “clean-up” effort (adding back details, whatever you deem appropriate, etc.). 1920 x 1200 preferred, 1920 x 1080 also very acceptable … :whistles:
I have no doubt in my mind that Sarah will have the place, er, ship shape in no time at all.
Thank you, Jason, this is a wonderful installment in the saga!
Awesome work, Jason! As soon as I saw it I thought “wallpaper!” It is now on my netbook.
it shall be done! thanks for liking this!
This is GREAT !
Although I strongly suspect Marge may soon regret that bold move ! There may not be a barge soon ! The bought in the two most dangerous people in the realm (withstanding Bill in berzerk mode) on a *floating* tavern ? Wrong move !
No wonder she was happy last week: FRESH MEAT! Not only that, she can rule over this place and not have to worry about the damage she caused back at her old place…
Large Marge’s Barge: you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
My kind of place.
I think I saw this place in Jamaica. Of course, the first thing I noticed was the girl tied to the bowsprit, but then I am kinky that way.
Poor Large Marge, Her Barge will never be the same after a slap-happy Sarah has her fun.
Awesome work and love the details!! This bar kind of reminds me of the bar in the movie “Road House”. Its a place where they sweep up teeth and eyeballs at the end of the night.
my favorite moment in ROAD HOUSE was ==
If somebody gets in your face and calls you a cocksucker, I want you to be nice. Ask him to walk. Be nice. If he won’t walk, walk him. But be nice. If you can’t walk him, one of the others will help you, and you’ll both be nice. I want you to remember that it’s a job. It’s nothing personal.
“Just watch your back, and each other’s… and take out the trash.”
oh there so going to get her all ready to for her to clean up i suspect that she will take over this bar with dirk and kick the owner out
Gah! That must be how Large Marge recruits her hired help….(Wonder what the interview piocess is like!)
What if all that’s transpired heretofore IS the interview process?!?
Definitely got me to notice. Not only notice, but write it up, too:
Looking forward to seeing how this all comes out.
sub-strip, eh? yes, jason’s sub-strip is enhancing the value of the Legend Of Bill.
so jason, how long ’till it’s renamed skinny sarah’s skiff?
Does she work in her swimsuit, or in her barwench outfit?
From the looks of the place, a mailshirt, mailskirt, greaves, helmet and so on…
I give her three days before she’s running the place.
…or until it’s burned down to sea level and sinks.
I love this. Though in my mind I see Large Marge looking like Shirley Temple small and cute with ice water in her veins
There is NOTHING I don’t love about this new comic. Wait…I take that back…WHY is every girl a redhead?! Not a single brunette in the bunch except for the one hanging from the yard arm and not a single swarthy looking one either! *is all upset and stuff* *Wink*
I love everything else about it. The guy in the water on the left is hysterical! The sharks! If I had to pick a girl to be, I’d be the one in the pink cause…well…she has on PINK! DUH! *pixie dust everywhere!*
I meant the guy on the right in the water. The one on the left is perfectly charming as well but yeah…righty’s my guy.
I think it’s great to have redheads. Besides, considering that half the redheads I’ve known or met were absolute psychos, I think it fits the millieu perfectly!
Have you met many Latin brunettes? Cause yeah, we’re passionate. In everything we do. Besides, sunlight renders redheads powerless. Swarthy girls on the other hand…well, we take it in stride and keep going.
It’s funny you mention sunlight. My hair was on it’s way to bleaching orange from it’s usual near black and I stopped it this last weekend by dying it dark auburn. I’d been out in the sun too long this summer and it wasn’t going to stop any time soon. Given what’s happened in the past, I’d be flame-colored by September. Having genes from Celts, Indians, Jews and some other groups does some really weird things…
WOW thank you all so much for enjoying this image so much. i have to say i was a bit sad to finish it. it was a blast. And with most of my images, they all start with a single goofy idea, i honestly drew this entire scene out of the image of the “floater” in the lower right, i love being a crazy artist…..thanks again
oh, and i did have a big liking to ROADHOUSE, so keep tuned in.
