Octopus Pie

This comic may not make a lot of sense to you unless you knew what I was referencing.

On the other hand, I think it's funnier to read not knowing I was referencing anything and just wondering why the crew is suddenly calling each other "Eve" and "Lunabelle" and where exactly Bligh is keeping that bird.

In any case, today's comic is a tribute to Meredith Gran's Octopus Pie, and the dialogue is entirely hers. I've been a fan of her stuff for a long time.

Just pick a random strip and read it without looking at the words at all. You can tell exactly what's going on, and have a good idea of what each character is feeling, and what their relationship is to the other characters. I eat that stuff up.

Now try that with On the Bounty. Oops. That's why she's the artist, folks. :s
