Bizarro meets Wayno in the Jungle

Today's Bizarro comic features another gag written by yours truly. This is the sixth one so far, and we have at least four more in the pipeline.

Here's the sketch as I submitted it to Dan Piraro. The original is very small, about 2 inches square, with the caption pasted on top of the art. Dan's final version is nearly identical to my sketch, which is flattering because he usually makes changes that greatly improve the composition and get the gag across much more effectively.

Some of the ideas I submit are not much more than scribbles. As subsequent comics appear, I'll post the published versions alongside my sketches to show how Mister P turns barely coherent doodles into cartoon gold.

Speaking of Bizarro, I highly recommend the Bizarro iPhone app.
