This one’s weird.  This is the original idea page that went to the syndicates.  I repurposed the gag in another setting when it ran here on the Hubris site, so it would fit into a storyline.  You can tell this version is just a gag-a-day version.  The characters’ personalities are well represented, though.  And this was when Hubris still held firmly to his name. The gag may have been a little forced when it fell into the storyline, but I think it worked.  I doubt any of you looked at it back then and said, “Heeeeey, this is just some joke he wedged into this story!”  You tell me.
