Unexpected Adventure WIP

I entered August intending to make more comics, but the month is almost over and I only have one in progress. It’s almost done. I’m fairly sure scanning this page will be a hot mess, but that’s a weekend problem. Stay well, peeps!

    They’re not real laws.

    It truly is, THOM!

    There! See? THOM just said I’m flying!

    DICK

    Of course a bird would say that.

    Honestly, HAROLD. Whales can’t fly. Get your head out of the clouds.

    Panel 9: HAROLD watches DICK swim away.
