    1. Thanks, Bob. I'd completely missed this!

  2. The thing I like best about this strip is not just the actual drawing (which is terrific) or the central joke (especially the title) but that this is something that could only work in comic strip form. The same is true of the previous two you've posted here as well: the words and the pictures separately wouldn't hold up, but together they function exactly right. It's almost as if all those years studying comics and cartoons have given you a finely honed sixth sense of what comics and cartoons are and how they work.

    I tell you, that shot of the giant Thunk pouncing on the shark still makes me laugh two days later.

      And that's pretty much ALL it has given me. ;)

      Thanks for the kind words, Richard.

      HEY, READERS:
      Were you were among the millions who rushed to read 'Watchmen' before the film's release?
      After finishing the last page, did you think to yourself, 'Hmn, I think I missed something?'
      Then this guy, Richard Bensam, has the book for YOU!
      'Minutes to Midnight: Twelve Essays on Watchmen' is an invaluable way to expand your knowledge of the hallowed comics text.
      Not only that, but with its in-depth analysis of Watchmen's influences, references and imitators, you're all but guaranteed a win at next Wednesday's local Irish Pub Trivia Night.
      And it's fun to read, too!
