Bizarro meets Wayno yet again!

Today's Bizarro comic is my third collaboration with the swashbuckling cartoonist Dan Piraro.

I wrote the gag, and gave Dan a drawing to work from, which he improved upon greatly. I'm really pleased with the way Mister P brought this gag to life. In my original sketch, the characters looked more like Easter Island heads, which are pretty funny in their own right, but they aren't tikis, and I should know better.

Make sure you track down the paper, so you can see the hilarious title block that runs alongside the panel.

And, I like the joke too.

I like it too! It has a great subtlety - and the unspoken "gay" joke makes one uncomfortable! This is about as perfect as a panel gag can get. I bet the New Yorker would reject it! It's too good!

Hey - I'm following you! You're my first stalkee!

Wayno said...

Thanks for stalking. I'm looking over my shoulder now!

As a matter of fact, the New Yorker DID reject my original version of this gag.

Arf! Yeah, that's a pretty funny toon!
