Secret of the Beaufort Sea – Page 25on August 21, 2012 at 12:01 am
I frickin’ LOVE this page.
As soon as Danilo turned in the first pencils, I knew it was going to be one of my favorites from Chapter 3, and the funny thing is, the way it turned out is nowhere near how it was described in the script. The script suggested a basic panel-to-panel layout with the whale appearing at the top of the page, but in his infinite wisdom Danilo opted for a collage layout and saved the money shot of the whale for the bottom of the page.
And, man what a shot of the whale it is! It’s glowing, soulless eye and battle-scared jaws just bring the point home once again that this monster is one tough, terrifying customer – more than a match for Custer and Crew.
Not to mention, it’s SWALLOWED JOE and CUP WHOLE! Now, some of our ever-appreciated commenters have been comparing Joe’s predicament to Jonah (from the Bible story) or Pinocchio – and rightfully so. However, once you guys see NEXT WEEK’S page all those comparisons will be BLOWN out of the WATER. You ain’t never seen the inside of whale as CRAZY as this!
What has Joe seen that’s left him in AWE? What is up with the bright lights and psychedelic colors? Be here NEXT WEEK when we explore the BELLY of the BEAST! Make sure to RSS, Like, or Follow unless you hate adventure and discovery…

Anyways, till next week!
Doen anyone know how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on a whale?
More important, does anyone know how to get the smell out of them afterwards?
“does anyone know how to get the smell out of them afterwards?”
Given that the setting is 1937—
Scrub them down with diesel, then remove the diesel with LAVA brand hand soap.
Removes just about anything, along with the top two layers of skin.
Uh…that don’t sound good at all.
Scrubbin’ down with diesel ain’t so bad, but soap is where Cup an’ me draw the line.
Well, I reckon in mini-panel three either cup and joe are having one heck of an acid trip in the whale’s stomach or…. they’re about to meet some aspect of the responsible party, with magical mayhem abounding.
The real question is what size dose of Ipecac would it take to make a whale barf?
The forecast for next week’s page just happens to call for a high chance of “magical mayhem abounding.”
Why anomalous? Those readings are completely normal for the digestive system of an inuit were-whale…
Thanks for creating this comic, I love the art (and the web site’s design).
Welcome aboard, Thomas!
Yeah, we love the art too. Danilo creates amazing work week-after-week, and the best is yet to come.
And, thanks, we did our best make the site unique and complimentary to the comic. Glad you dig it.
See you next week!
Hmmm…. do we FINALLY find Emilia Erheart?
