Because today’s strip is about comical books, Mr. Oddnoc has enlisted perennial sophomores Owen and Cody to do the daily commentary. They will provide the puerile perspective and gravitas that Batominc bloviating about comic books warrants.
Note: the part of Holly in panel 2 will inexplicably be portrayed by Olympia Dukakis.
Owen: Mr. Oddnoc, do we have to do this one? It sucks!
Oddnoc: Oh, jeez, you’re right. Take the day off, boys! Go for a hike!
Cody: That’s what Batominc should do—take a hike!
Oddnoc: Haw! For sure. Anyway, here’s what Tubby McHagglesalot should have said:
Alternate-reality Chester the Chiseler: Ahhhhhhhhhhh! You cursed b——tch! Look what you’ve done! It’s decomposing and dropping in value. Ohhhhh, what a world, what a world! Who would have thought that some woman like you could destroy my beautiful comic book?
Owen: Good one, Mr. O! See ya!
