The Bizarro comic for Sunday, July 8 depicts a leader who refuses to take halfway measures.
Pirates appear regularly* in Bizarro, almost as often as psychiatrists, bartenders, and clowns, so I was pleased to come up with a new variation on the theme.
Here's my sketchbook version of this gag:
My submission is laid out for the daily panel format, and I was very happy to see that Dan Piraro chose to use it as a Sunday comic, giving him room to do a nice panoramic view of the deck with a bit of background scenery to top it off. I just noticed that Dan one-upped me by giving the captain twin beard-braids. A very amusing touch! If only we'd given him a spyglass...
We have many more new laffs in the hopper for your enjoyment. In the meantime, please browse the Piraro/Wayno Collaboration Archive.
*In fact, the first time I met Dan there was swordplay involved.
