A Full Page Alf the Anteater Adventure (almost)

TEN PANELS, COUNT'EM TEN (if you count the title panel, then it's eleven). That's about three panels shy of a full page!

The last panel is supposed to be upside down. The gag is that Alf hit the ground so hard, he went straight through the earth all the way to China. This gag was lifted right out of a Road Runner cartoon. If you look at the original art, the last panel was not upside down. I decided to flip it when I was inking the artwork. I think it makes the ending a little goofier.


  1. I love the upside down last panel - That's cartoon logic at its finest right there. What I'm getting from this and the Slick comics was how you fluent in the 'language' of cartoons pretty early on. I mean, most kids can read the language, but it takes a special sort of mind to be able to speak it.

    Meanwhile, I didn't even know what a 'wild take' was.

  2. Thanks a lot. Cartooning really has been a lifelong obsession of mine. I've always loved it. I don't think that will ever change.
