Bizarro ringmaster Dan Piraro and I both love a good clown gag. I believe we share the same feeling about clowns: we're not afraid of them, we just don't like them.
The submission sketch was formatted for a regular daily panel. The final art follows the same general staging, but Dan gave it his full-on Sunday treatment, which is spectacular, as always.
As mentioned above, clowns appear in many of our gags. Here's a look at our other polka-dotted funnies.
Coming up on Wednesday: a meta-gag.
