I See A Morpheus

The poster on the wall in Strong Sad's Room is a picture of Morpheus from Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" series.

Strong Sad's
Lament

Comments:

  • The description from the fun fact is virtually identical to the one next to the avatar in Strong Sad's Lament. Obviously, the images themselves are not identical.
  • What we need is someone to provide a link from somewhere online to the image of the poster (on the left).
  • The voting block has been removed, because there really isn't anything to vote on. Once someone comes up with appropriate evidence (either that it's Morpheus or something else entirely), the fact will be reinstated (possibly after having been rewritten, depending on what evidence is found).
  • Well, as a Sandman (and a Neil Gaiman) fan, I can see the resemblance to Morpheus. But I've never seen that exact incarnation of him before. Gaiman did use many different artists throughout Sandman's run, though, so it could be something I've never seen. Also, I don't remember Morpheus ever wearing a crescent-moon before, but that could just be artist interpretation. A quick Google image search brings up lots of pics, but not that one.
  • I don't know how conclusive this is, but I found several fan sites containing the image on the right: [1], [2], [3], and [4]. (Of course, I realized after finding these that we are really looking for the image on the left.) So then for over an hour I looked through covers of Gaiman's books and comics, and I didn't find anything that points to Strong Sad's poster being related at all to our buddy Morpheus. The guy on the left looks like a pirate to me. Arrrgh mateys! (We might want to post something on the forum, it usually has a nice broad audience where people who might have seen our swashbuckler might be able to tell where he's from.)
    • I have posted it on the forum here.
    • If someone feels like shelling out the $2.50, this would be a good question to post on Google Answers.

Whoa

Strong Bad must have not gotten ANY good emails when they made this one. 68.215.185.76 12:37, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

Oh, come on, man. You don't see any point of irony in this thing? I mean, the guy misses the days when Strong Bad would just boringaly answer his emails without anything happening, and then the computer explodes. How much more gimmicky-y can you get, man? I don't know.

"Seems to be the e-mail?"

From the summary: "This seems to be the email when the Tandy experienced its explosion."

I think it's pretty darn certain that the Tandy exploded in this e-mail. (I changed it already.) --oddtodd 14:38, 1 Dec 2004 (MST)

That happened to my little TV once, only it didn't explode.... The screen just warped and it shut off, only the power light was still on, and there was a barely discernible squeal with a burning electronic smell in the air.....--Everybody!

Superfreak???

I really don't think the intro song is a reference to Superfreak. Thoughts? --ironcladlou

Idon't think the song is super freak either. It doesn't sound enough like it to make me believe
