Special Episode 2/1 - Guest Director - Quentin Tarantino
I always wanted to copy the titles from 'Reservoir Dogs'...that pretty much gave birth to the whole 'Guest Directors' idea. I basically just took the piss out of QT's riffing on pop culture, set to pop music and bloody violence. Giving Mad Dog a sword was a late change. He had a gun, too, until I realised I'd only really parodied 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction'. The sword was a nod to 'Kill Bill'. I also have Tarantino-esque product placement for non-existent brands. Note the 'Big Burger' poster in Panel 12. Does that burger have a FACE? Could that be a Tarantino-esque in-joke that relates to my other work? Damn right. There's also a reference to 'Wayne's World', in that I deliberately used 'SCHWING' as a sword sound effect. Finally, I leave it up in the air whether Beardo dies or not, just like Mr Pink in 'Reservoir Dogs' (I'm convinced he dies)...
