... Will it be Happiness, or Dominance?  Happy Bears face off against 
the Doom Bear, as the Doom Quest concludes in two strips this week!



Author's Notes:

I would have guessed either Psychovant or Pizza Fu would have taken over 
Powernaut Comics first.  But the Doom Bear is the senior character of 
those three, so he has more chances.  And at least it still took a funny 
animal to do it.

I'd like for this Doom Bear episode to have been in 1990, so as to 
slavishly follow Marvel Comics which was bringing back villain comics 
then.  The occasion was Thanos overflowing from a Silver Surfer plotline 
into his own villainous quest, which would eventually be the basis of 
the world's highest-grossing movie (or two) up to 2019.  The Doom Bear 
has likewise overflowed Powernaut Comics.  But he's on a timeline, so he 
has stuff to do later in 1990 - when Ellipsis shows up.  And Christine 
Lassiter needs some time to get there too.  Hence, Doom Bear 1989.

This episode has a bunch of other things to explain.  For instance, 
presumably the Doom Bear (and the other Doom Creatures) had 
predecessors.  Also, he took over the Happy Bear Land somehow.  Also, 
he's awfully fixated on fire and ice.  Well, here's where we get answers.

I've already incorporated realistic fire art into my comics, plus 
realistic cloud art which I photographed myself.  For this series, I 
included realistic ice art which I photographed myself, at the great 
Greenland icecap in 1999!

Me getting this series done this far before Christmas, was almost a 
literal Christmas miracle.  It involved an Amazon shipping center 
*offering* me time off of work, in the middle of its peak season. 
Doomsday is saved...  Happy Holidays 2019!
