Alex is an LOTR geek. Yay. Blayne is totally Gollum.

Cielo said...

WOW. I couldn't pinpoint exactly why Blayne freaked me out so much, but this cartoon completely captures it!

Levityinbrevity said...

Anonymous said...

Carol said...

OMG Blayne is SOO Gollum!! INSPIRED!!! HAHAHAHHAHAH

I knew I had seen that creepy face somewhere before....!!!

Daniel as Frodo is even more hilarious!! And Joe is TOTALLY Boromir!! hahahhaa

(is my LOTR geekness showing???? LOL)

Bernd said...

Thank you Alex.

BdS is a dead-ringer for Gollum, and Daniel's Frodo is inspired. I'm still laughing.

Btw, you look great in a dress.

LelĂȘ. said...

Omg. The BEST ONE so far!!!!! I'm literally LMAO alone downstairs! HAHAHA!!

Alex... if one day I get divorced....would you marry me? ;)

ToddNY said...

That is HILARIOUS!!! I'm still laughing with "precious"

Bailey said...

I must concur. These are amazing and hilarious. Keep 'em coming!!!

Not being a LOTR geek, I had to do a bit of Wiki research. Blayne not only looks like Gollum. He IS Gollum. Review:

"Unlike other characters, Gollum speaks in an unusual manner" Check.

"His life was extended far beyond its natural limits by the effects of possessing the One Ring" Check. (what else would explain surviving past the first PR challenge?)

"He also uses his own versions of words, similar to the original words" Checkalicious

"Over the years, his eyes adapted to the dark and became 'lamp-like', shining with a sickly pale light in the dark" Check.

"he developed a sort of split personality:the good personality "Slinker" (for his fawning, eager-to-please demeanor), and the bad personality "Stinker" (for obvious reasons)" Check.

Well. There you have it.

Oh, Alex, I'm officially in love. LOTR! Yessssss, my precioussssss, it's Daniel and Blayne as hobbits, I love it. If Joe is Boromir, are you predicting his auf'ing next week?

Joanie said...

I just snorted. Really.

"Precious"...that's what got me. And the wizened, sere look for BdS so works.

Alex! in the dresses....BRILLIANT!

Such a smart, creative man with a great sense of humor -- got any others like you at home waiting to be grabbed up?

Anonymous said...

That was brilliant. Made my day too. Love the LOTR references.

snaillady2 said...

At least now I can pretend to hear "precious" instead of whatever 'licious phrase Blayne has come up with for this week...and hope and Orc comes in and carries him off.

And I totally agree that Leann was robbed, Robbed, ROBBED! I still can't tell if she is going to burst into tears or go postal, though.

Anonymous said...

OMG! Alex!!!!!
LOL!!
You Rock!!!

Daxx said...

Totally hilarious. I'll be hearing it everytime I see Blayne.

Classic!

Melinda said...

Precilicioussssss...

lynette said...

Alex! sure knows how to work a dress! LOL

Love the LOTR references. Sooooo...who's going to be Aragon and Arwen?!

hello, i'm patsy stone said...

Ah, the '80's. I loved B&J back then. What teenager didn't? Not to mention Trans Ams...gold, with a T-top and Firebird emblem on the hood.

Anonymous said...

ROFL! Gollum was SPOT on. The last row was priceless too... BURN! LOL!

Emily said...

Love the Betty & Veronica stuff. :)

kana said...

i never thought i'd see the day when LOTR and Project Rungay would cross paths. GENIUS.

oceans and stars said...

Blayne as Gollum/ Daniel as Frodo kills me dead forever. So much hilarity.

Jeanne said...

I would totally take the offer in the Trans-Am.

Angel H. said...

Everyone's talking about the LOTR reference but I'm loving Fenley as Veronica Lodge!

Mariana (The Unoriginal) said...

"kana said...

That's why I love this blog : )

Gorgeous Things said...

OMG I nearly peed my pants over Blayne as Gollum!!!!

Alex, you rule!

Bill said...

Brilliance!! I don't know which was better: Blayne as Gollum or Alex in the dresses.

You are the best, Alex! Will you be releasing a full comic book or graphic novel of PRG Season 5?

Anonymous said...

oh how i LOVE lord of the rings
that was hilariousss

and that was actually word for word from the movie, props to alex for memorizing that, (like i have.)

Anonymous said...

You guys definitely need to read page 2 about Emily venting!!!

Anonymous said...

Hahaha I love Daniel and Blayne's depiction.

MORDOR...

Sewing Siren said...

The last frame is the best! Poor Emily!

potty mouth princess said...

I TOTALLY want to get wasted on Bartles and Jaymes in the back of a Trans-Am, rocking out to RUSH.

Wait, been there, done that. *skulks off in shame*

a-nony-mouse said...

>>Alex... if one day I get divorced....would you marry me? ;)<<

No, no! I have an adorable 23 year old daughter for Alex!

Isabella said...

"Sewing Siren said...

Poor Emily? You should read her interview Tlo posted on the second page. Talk about denial and delusional!

Barbara said...

Perfect!!

Gays, be sure to label Kenley Collins in the post, too. :)

Thanks!

littlekarnak said...

OMG, the Joe/Daniel/Blayne panel was perfect! Good job, Alex!!

littlekarnak said...

And I think you should do a graphic novel retrospective of all PR seasons! I'll pre-order 5 right off the bat!

Esther said...

OMG, Alex! YOU have made me laugh and made my day, especially as I'm a HUGE LOTR geek!!!!!!! YEA! You rock!!!!!

lovemesomedaniel said...

Is everyone officially in love with Alex now? Keep going with the Lord of the Rings. I want to see who will be the other characters. Is it wrong that this is way better than PR itself?

Brooklyn Bomber said...

Yo!
Oh, Alex. Brilliant.
Mordor. . . precioussss!!!!!!
I love Kenley as Veronica and I love you in the dresses. Too funny!

Petunias Mom said...

Dead on, as usual!

agnes gooch said...

mjude said...

"Esther said...

FashionFanatic said...

ROFLMAO. now THAT is precious!

Jacqueline said...

This might possibly be even better than your Christian/Chris Krazy Kat strip last season.

Put a damn book out already, will you? Please?

Anonymous said...

alex, you're my hero.

lynette said...

Wow......if you scroll your screen to where cartoon Blayne/Gollum is at the top, you'll also be able to see that first screencap of Blayne/Gollum.

Alex! really captured it in likeness.

Nadia_M19 said...

AMAZING.
thank you.

i'm not dorothy gale said...

Hysterical! Preciousliciousness beyond measure! More, Alex, MORE!

Jenster said...

Getting drunk on Bartles and James! Oh, the memories....

shiver72876 said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I love that Alex is utterly straight and yet draws cartoons about PR!!

That last line is PERFECTION.

edina monsoon said...

Another great one, alex! And "Kevin" was spot-on.

anonymous (12:39) aka suzette

As a LOTR geek, I LOL'd at your list of Gollum's traits and qualities. I think even Blayne and Gollum would get a kick out of "checkalicious."

Anonymous said...

Shameful confession: I've never seen a LOTR movie or read any of the books. But Blayne, Daniel and Joe were still hilarious to me!

Alex, you look like a member of Monty Python in Keith's dress! Love it!

The talent here is awesome, thanks for sharing it with us!

BrianB

Anonymous said...

I liked how you drew Keith, but you got his mannerisms all wrong - he's not a hip-hop guy, he's a snowboardin' dude. He doesn't say "word" and "dawg", he says "buddy" and "bro".

In fact, in honor of Keith, I hereby nominate "buddy" as the new catch phrase of Season 5. It's no "tranny mess", but it beats "licious"!

winkleperi said...

best comic yet!

Anonymous said...

Hysterical!!!! I love it!!!!

Anonymous said...

hey Alex you have a crush on Leanne!

Anonymous said...

and that Gollum must say
"my precioulicious!!"

Anonymous said...

WHO IS JOE?

Anonymous said...

yeah, i see keith more as a dude bro buddy.

even if he IS from utah. kidding.

"I'm making Daniel's bed, cause he's my buddy..."

definitely a sweetheart. could make my bed. buddy.

Shinjira said...

Hahahahahahaha.

Awesome, Alex!

Jules said...

Alex, did we know each other in the 80s or were we just living the same life in different places??? Bwahaha!

ProfP said...

TLo + Alex + LOTR + Veronica (Go Archies!)+ Love for Geek Girls = MUCH HAPPINESS!


This has to be one of the most accomplished, witty blog groups in existence.

p.s. What, no 'ludes in that Trans Am glove box?????

Michelle said...

Oh, BRILLIANT. LOTR + Archie + Project Runway = GENIUS.

Who knew there were so many LOTR geeks watching Project Runway, precious? :D

R2K said...

Man it has been a while: )

Save_The_Hobbit said...

I just spit everything that was in my mouth onto my computer screen. I am now burying my head in my hands and crying, I am laughing so hard.

Oh my god. Now everytime I see Blayne I'm going to burst out into laughter and yell, "My preeecious!"

thyrza said...

Bartles and James, dude! Man, does that bring back some memories.
And the LoTR stuff -- just inspired. Keep 'em coming.

thyrza said...

Oh, and:

Who knew there were so many LOTR geeks watching Project Runway, precious? :D

I KNOW! I'm as surprised as you are, Michelle. Love it!

Do you realize how well you nailed Blayne?

"lovemesomedaniel said...

Funniest. Toon. Ever! I'm a huge Lord of the Rings Fan!"

Me too. I love Blayne as Gollum.

Anonymous said...

Love the point made in the final scene. Leanne was robbed this week.

Anonymous said...

LOL. Alex doing PR toons is TOTALLY a highlight EVERY season when I check the Project Rungay blog.

ROFLMAO on that tanorexic Blayne a la Gollum. Wouldn't it be funnier if he used "Liciousssss" instead of "Preciousssss"? Just sayin;...

And Alex is SO hopelessly crushing on Leanne. LOL on his last line. Really made my day!

Ellie said...

I don't know what was funnier Blayne as Gollum or the Leanna love at Emily's expense! Alex you rock !

eric3000 said...

Great job, Alex! You captured the designers perfectly!
