#163 Mandrake: The Test Run


Oh, Phil. Where does your boundless charm come from?

Favorite things about this strip include the curly-haired Errol Flynn Phil has attracted and Krys’s expert bodyguard stance in the final panel.

PHIL: A test run? But I haven’t learned anything new.
SEDUCTION INSTRUCTOR: Forget everything I have tried to teach you.
Phil sits at the bar while Mandrake, Krys, and the seduction instructor look on. A boy smiles at her, and she smiles back.
BOY (holding out handkerchief): Miss, I think you dropped this.
ERROL FLYNN LOOKING DUDE: Would you care to dance?
SPIKY HAIRED BOY (pushing past other boys): I saw you here all alone, and…
Krys hustles Phil out of the crowd.
MANDRAKE: Ten minutes, and anyone here would walk to the ends of the earth for her.
SEDUCTION INSTRUCTOR: Ten more, and I think I would.

    You know who Errol Flynn reminds me of sometimes?…Cary Elwes; and not when he was sucking,in SAW. I mean when he was in Princess Bride, which I own…(but don’t tell anyone)

    Why would you not want to tell anyone you owned Princess Bride? Princess Bride is universally, unshamefully enjoyed. (His resemblance to Flynn in that film was, I’m sure, intentional, and also: hottttttt)

    Cary Elwes in Princess Bride is even more hot than Errol Flynn! hotter? Anyway, it never occurred to me before that he was channeling Errol Flynn. Of course he was! Hooray.
