Comics on the Road to Nowhere? Pt. 5 of 11: Guppy Hunter

So, this strip was the point where we actually started to do our best to try and mess with the other guys. I still don't how or why the trio of pine trees showed up, but there they are. And I kind of love them, just like a coniferous Huey, Dewey and Louie. I also love the croc and I sorely wish the Rare Monster-Jawed Guppy hadn't, presumably, bitten it at the end, because I really wanted the character to talk. Somehow this silly strip actually worked out, and while I can't speak for my brothers, this was a huge surprise to me.

Here is comic #5, titled "Guppy Hunter" by Mark "Otis", Chris "The Eel" and Rik Tod Johnson. Enjoy...

This one works very well. What began it? Your words, or Chris' drawing? I cannot label all of the panels, though I know that I drew 2 and 5. I think that I drew number 3, as well, but you labeled her tub, didn't you? The consistency of the switch-around between us seems thrown off with this comic, though the end result is perfect, me feels.

Just when I think I have you guys figured out you go and change the game on me. I was positive that Billy would have had his hand chewed off and the next panel would show his guts spewing everywhere, butit wasn't so.

I love the beginning where Billy says all the stereotypical Aussie things. Nicely done, these are fun to read. I would like a coffee table of all of these.

Thanks, Jon! Much appreciated.

Honestly, I tried to think of every Aussie cliche I could muster while sitting about in the middle of nowhere. Could have had more, but only so much room in a comic panel.

And while there is some violence in some of the comics, we have only had one "guts billowing" scene thus far. Actually, the Halloween scene was only one we did.
