#384 "Is This Satire?"

Firstly, an explanation.

I was planning an April Fool's Day issue that I was not able to finish on time.  It was a bit too elaborate.  So, instead, I prepared what you saw last week.  In many ways, I think an April Fool's filler comic is even more prank-ish than a full-on April Fool's comic.  I'll shelf it until next year, assuming I remember.

Also, yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge, an important battle of the First World War, and a defining moment in Canadian history.  According to the Canadian War Museum, it was "the first time all four Canadian divisions attacked together: men from all regions of Canada were present at the battle.  Brigadier-General A.E. Ross declared after the war, 'in those few minutes I witnessed the birth of a nation.'"

With that in mind, I felt it would be kind of shitty of me to post a comic on the day of the Anniversary about soldiers behaving badly, even if they are fictional and action figures, but you know what I mean.

Anyway, here's a fresh new issue, and it's silly enough the cheer you up after those last few paragraphs:
