Hold the Parasol

Today's Bizarro comic eases us into Friday after a rough week at the office.
Dan Piraro's finished art employs a completely different camera angle from the one in my submission sketch.
Either approach works, but I see some good reasons for his choice. The view from behind the customer puts the reader more in the scene, as if we're just walking into the bar and overhearing the comment. The fish shows up a little better from this angle, and it provided an opportunity for him to depict a nice assortment of bottles behind the bartender, with several Bizarro Secret Symbols gracing the labels.

Please feel free to wander through this blog's Bizarro Cartoon Cellar to view our many collaborative gags, and stay tuned for more hilarity.

Yeah, I'd have to go with Dan's approach on this one, too. Often I think yours is the best--there's something about the expressions and body language of your figures that I prefer--but the published version of this one is actually superior.
