Cloud cover


Illustration: A person sits in the basket of a hot air balloon disguised as a cloud. The balloon floats among real clouds. The person writes in a notebook. Bottom caption: Mere days into the study, I believe the herd has accepted me as one of their own.

Though I do worry about the awkwardness to come when everyone else starts raining.




Person 1, pointing: Is that a question mark hovering over your head? Person 2, slumped and looking confused: Yeah. I don't get it.

Keep in mind that your booing will only make me stronger.


Condiments and comprehensibility


Person 1, smiling and gesticulating: "[Conversing conversationally]". Person 2, with small, faraway eyes: "Sorry, I'm too hungry to see you as anything but a giant talking sandwich, and I can't understand you through all the mustard."

But let me be clear: I am not complaining about the amount of mustard. Even more would be good too. You could totally pull it off.


Discussion: I should have drawn the person as the talking sandwich, maybe? Despite the fact that we are observing this scene from outside the second character's perspective? And more importantly despite the fact that I didn't want to?


Do it right


A cloud with a face says, "The thing you did was bad, but I don't care about that part. Just do it right is what I'm saying."
Starting to think this cloud needs professional help. (This is nothing but my brain is broken and insists on posting sunk costs instead of a rerun.)


New captain, not the same as the old captain


Text: "Captain Birdbeard". Pictured: a person with a tuft of hair atop their head and a long, black-and-grey beard in which at least four little yellow birds are nestled.

This isn't really a comic, but who actually cares? I can only get in trouble with myself & I don't really respect that guy's opinion anyway.


The joke is cat


This comic is technically in three panels, but I did a weird thing in the first two where a three-step action takes place across them and cuts the border between the two panels where the middle action takes place. A person walks, then falls abruptly backwards, then picks themself up off the ground and says, "Good thing no one saw that!" In the third panel, a cat narrows its eyes and says, "I did, but I ain't sayin' nothin' to nobody."

Here is the promised cat comic. May I have some mainstream success now, please?


Wasn't going to until

A stick figure with bull-like horns on their head looks annoyed and says, "Well, I wasn't going to gore you until you brought it up."

Struggling today, so here's this scribble from my notebook from a couple weeks ago when I was struggling less. The illegible text says, "Well, I wasn't going to gore you until you brought it up." It's funny because it's relatable! Tune in next time for one where the entire joke is that there's a cat!


Sorry your name is


A person holds a piece of paper or perhaps an envelope and reads from it. They're standing about two meters from another person. The first says, "I'm sorry...your name is 'Pleurp'?" The second smiles slightly and says, "You don't have to be sorry. You didn't name me that."

It is fun to say, though. I'm going to be your friend so I get to say it all the time, OK?




The people were astonished at this doctrine


The top half of the image is text containing prose as follows: Mrs. Finnikin said, "Father! There you are!  I passed by the parsonage to bring you a loaf of bread—I always bake too much—and, well,  I was looking for you and—" "Thank you, that was very kind," said Codspittle. She ignored this; something else troubled her.  "Yes, but Father, does the Church know they've sent you to such a dilapidated dwelling?" The bottom half of the image is a comic, with the Reverend Codspittle (who is secretly the being Amunizuwrim) wearing a broad black hat and a dark burgundy jacket and saying, "The comforts of this world offer no rest to me." to Mrs. Finnikin. The latter wears a handkerchief over her head, large glasses, and a dress with a subtle floral print. She looks perhaps stunned at what Codspittle has said and replies, "...I see."

The people were astonished at this doctrine.
(This one won't make sense, let alone have a chance at amusing, unless you've read last Wednesday's comic.)
(And yes, putting so many words in a comic is frowned upon, but this is how I wanted it & also getting in trouble is made up.)
