I don’t think one single strip has ever gotten Marc more praise than last week’s–and not even for the portion of the strip that was the biggest effort. More than a few of you were instead impressed with Marc’s work on Jerry’s expression in the last panel, and rightly so. It reminded me of the very best and creepiest depictions of the Joker at the time of his creation. Awesome work, Marc.

For my money, Marc does a similar trick with today’s strip. Seeing that cybernetic hand back on Tangerine is just plain weird after all this time, but Tangerine’s more severe reaction is rendered perfectly. The recovering alcoholic has been pushed into the bar. Now what?

See you on Wednesday as Tangerine–and you–face an even bigger shock!
