And here we are, in the first comic of Molly Beans, Season 2.
Why, after over two and a half years, and 270 comics, did I suddenly decide that this would be the proverbial second season? Well, there are a number of reasons, but first and foremost I decided that I needed to give our girl’s strip a bit of a stylistic, dynamic boost; the kind of things I wanted to do before the final curtain wouldn’t fit well into the format of a strip rather than a proper graphic novel page (at least for me).
For another, I decided it was time to really start going hard in the paint, so to speak, as far as the practical applications of our girl’s deeply held philosophies and values. To this end, I’m going to be emphasizing, hopefully in an entertaining way, the various aspects of the Chuck/Kim dichotomy.
Molly was or still is in love with both of these individuals, both of which represent opposing poles of philosophical (not necessarily political) values. How Molly feels toward them both will hopefully go a long way towards enabling her to find her own unshakable center, since as she herself said, Love is our involuntary response to virtue in another, if we are virtuous ourselves. Who we love or who we are attracted to shows us a lot about ourselves, whether we choose to see it or not.
I hope that you will continue to read and enjoy as I continue down this road with Miss Beans.
As always, thanks for stopping by, reading, supporting, and letting me know where I go right and where I go wrong.
