Not the reaction Larry was hoping for when he wrote that line.
Honestly, I had a much different strip in mind when he threw that one in. I believe I mentioned earlier that sparks may fly very soon…
So, lots of call-backs in this one. Now you can finally find out who imports those yummy Yakutis Melons to Brenizer’s Fine Foods. Speaking of The King of the Underdogs, the mighty talented great guy Michael Yakutis, I wanted to feature his wonderful gift to us from back in 2014. Thank you again, Mike! And, of course, the historic first meeting of Larry and Edison from our very first strip. Wow. That was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, huh.
“Heaven’s hard drunk” is an expression I picked up from my latest read, Charles Dickens’ “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” It just seemed appropriate.
And don’t worry-next week’s strip is 90% done, and I’m only working one job this week! Stay tuned!
