Family Law

Here's my latest Bizarro joke, as rendered by the lovely and talented Dan Piraro:
There's not a lot of "process" to discuss for this one. It's just a simple bit of wordplay. Once the phrase was in place, it wasn't too difficult to set the scene. Dan's final art followed my sketch pretty closely, with no changes to the text.
The biggest surprise was that the syndicate ran the comic at all, since sex is an uncommon topic on the funny pages.

Stay tuned for more laffs from Dan and me. Right now we have at least four in the pipeline: April 3, April 8, a special IRS gag on April 15, and a splashy Sunday spread on May 1.

  1. I know from talking to an old acquaintance to had a syndicated strip how prudish they are. However, as "sex" goes, that's as innocuous as it can possibly get. Like the expression on Dan's characters.
