I feel like there’s more I could’ve done with this one, and I worry the conversation sounds choppy with all the “the new chief” and “the old chief” business. I can’t say much to the former beyond “it was time to stop staring at this and move on,” but the latter is because I wanted to avoid having to come up with names for either chief for fear that the name would either evoke a specific group of people or would sound too ridiculous to belong to ANY group of people that made sense. I’m no historiologist, and we strive for ambiguity here at PartiallyClips when we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about.
This strip made it past both my first and second lines of suck defense (specifically my wife and the glorious crap-deflecting trio of Devo Spice, Luke Ski, and Sara Trice, who also caught a typo.) They receive no pay for this service beyond being granted the power to feed and crush my ego at their respective whims.
MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: Amusing!
