Out to Sea – Page 20

If you ever find yourself stranded on a deserted island in the middle of the ocean, remember to pack essentials. Go by whale!

To make up for not posting pages every Tuesday and Thursday, I will start posting Mon-Wed-Fri starting today. For some reason on Tuesday and Thursday I forget the internet exists. Even though I am on it then. I think the pandemic is messing with my head.

How do you get TV reception or power inside the belly of a whale? I could invoke the MST3K mantra, but I defer more to what Thad Komorowski and Bob Jaques call “cartoon logic” (also the title of their great podcast on the history and art of classic animation) — basically artistic license with a lot more license thrown in. If it serves the story or the humor, go for it.

Pop culture references here: obviously the dogs are on some political argument show you find all over cable news, but the Towel of Power refers to the Shamwow towel frequently advertised on TV back when I drew this ten years ago. I think it is still in production, but I have not seen a commercial for it in a long time. But I did just learn that Vince Offer is now hawking Shamwow masks for your pandemic protection. Never let a crisis go to waste, I guess.
