Two on this Tuesday:
Cow and Boy by Mark Leiknes
Piranha Club by Bud Grace
Something about that Cow and Boy panel disturbs me. A talking cow and a boy naked but for overalls--they allow this in the paper?
The extended family circus is filled with these sorts of one-shot, random characters. They appear just for the sake of a gag. In this instance, Max has a champion goatee of the kind only worn by nineteen year old rap metal bass players from the Inland Empire. With this sort of influence, Billy will be making backyard wrestling videos of himself falling in to racks of fluorescent light bulbs at the age of fifteen.
