Ha, actually yeah this is one of the oddest nuances of your version of Prometheus’ situation.
I keep wondering, is Prometheus immortal? Is his wife immortal? I think you established before that Eagle is not, and he replaced a different eagle who used to have the job… but maybe I’m misremembering.
Oh also, how does he grow his liver back?
It really is remarkable how you’ve taken on such a limited subject and still can make strips, it makes me think.
What does it make you think: “What is this Weinstein guy’s problem?”
You’re not misremembering: there was one strip where the eagle’s father shows up and says that he used to eat Prometheus’ liver in the old days. You probably deserve a prize for remembering that.
I don’t know how his liver grows back, but a doctor once wrote telling me that the liver is the only organ in humans that can actually regenerate. I wonder if the ancient Greeks knew that…and how could they??
Maybe there were Greek mad scientists, who cut up peoples’ livers to test it. Or some freak accident where someone’s liver was actually eaten by an eagle!
And yes, you’re nuts, but what it makes me realize is that I probably overcomplicate my ideas (without actually making much out of them). Better to do a strip about a simple situation than to have sketches that never go anywhere about a more complicated one.
