Dangerous

Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 4 May 2015.You don’t know the power of the Dark Side … do you?

Nor does Adam, it seems.

Oh, come on! Tell me this isn’t a dangerous endeavor, I dare you! All the potential crash and burn of your nastiest NASCAR fantasy, and nobody has to die, and it’s not NASCAR so that’s okay. But tell me you’re not curious. Of the myriad manners by which this can go buggy, how can you not want to be there to witness the moment some disaster falls into and then leaps out of the frame?

Or, you know, who knows? Maybe it won’t be a complete disaster.

Nobody says cartooning is easy.

We might also reflect on the proposition that this is not the worst Star Wars joke I’ve encountered in recent days. Let that say what it will.

Begging for a Profane Title

Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 6 April 2015.I wish my brother, George, was here.

Actually, his name isn’t George, but he is a proper student of comedy, which apparently is why he thinks Seinfeld was funny, but never mind, it had its moments, and no, that’s not a Costanza joke.

Still, though, one wonders about the comedic theory prescribing when to hit so hard in the second panel. It almost feels like one has no place to go but down.

Then again, it’s Adam Huber, so that means there is plenty of room for a triple-gainer with a two and half twist.

Damn. That’s right, it’s a hot tub.
