*SLAMS HAND ONTO DESK* THIS TOOK TOO LONG

I fully redid some of the poses in this one like three whole times, like just scrapping finished lineart and starting over because I hated it so much, good lord, let's never golf again.

The final tune Ian is whistling is "Faerie's Aire and Death Waltz" by John Stump, which is a fantastic bit of comedy by itself. It wasn't created until 1980 but you know what, Ian's doing some straight up summoning in this so all bets are off the freaking table

May just be me, but I'm interpreting that fifth panel as "I will sing the song that will end the Earth."

New fan theory:
During the time of the Nixon administration, Ian will have a job in Washington DC, where he will become the whistleblower Deep Throat.

(And later still he'll move to Silicon Valley and will inspire whoever invented those '90s era modem noises.)

tfw you have an impromptu whistling contest and accidentally die halfway through

imagine being this competitive over whistling while playing casual golf

Really liking how you did the sky and background, too! The panel where Ian is making the death-whistle looks like Seatown is getting nuked.

Thank you!! Golfing backgrounds make me feel so confident like they're literally just grass, trees, and mountains, and I can 100% draw all of those things

You brought a whistle to a golf fight? ;-)

I would say "NEVER bring a whistle to a golf fight" but clearly they kind of made it work, so

I'm just sat here wondering what those whistles even sound like--two notes together I can kind of get (whistle one note, sing the other maybe?), but panel five I'm just imagining incomprehensible Cthulhu chanting which I imagine was what you were going for

Also lol I looked at that part of the piece, and it directs you to play it "light and airy" lol okay

So I think the two notes together is like... Tuvan throat whistling

Here is a MIDI version of the Death Waltz, it's a HOT MESS and that's not even accounting for all the stage directions

Little does everyone know Jared simply tapped into his capability to whistle the demon language and the sheer power of the utterance of it's vocabulary damaged his vocal cords.

and here I thought the Ianpocalypse would involve a fruit bowl, but nope, all he has to do is whistle at the top of his lungs.
