I don’t think I’ve ever seen Funky so determined on a goal as in panel one. Run, fat-boy, run! And panel two is also pretty remarkable, as the “monster” managed to shed his costume…and the boxes comprising said costume don’t have any holes cut into them! You know, what you’d need to do to make a costume out of pizza boxes. Either that, or the “monster” is still fully boxed and we see that Montoni’s just tosses the trash into the alley, like everyone else in Westview. Because what is there, apart from trash and garbage? Certainly nothing valuable.
The third denouement–that this was a magical pizza monster made of intact boxes–is probably what Batiuk hoped people will take from it, but the dash around the corner kills that stone dead.
And thus ends another remarkably stupid storyline. If I had to say something positive, well. at least Les wasn’t in it.
That positive won’t last, by the way. Just thought I’d throw a late Halloween scare at ya.
