#134 Flood Solution

January 18, 2019
If all people were this smart, we wouldn’t even need comics anymore!

Transcript

While most of the citizens didn’t mind the flooded city, they eventually got fed up fishing for rats, drifting furniture and their float-away children.

They hatched a genius yet simple solution to drain the water: make a couple of small holes to the wall.

Except they found that draining speed was proportionally comparable to the size of the hole. Ergo: bigger hole = less days living on the roofs!

Meanwhile, some citizens were tragically unaware of the aforementioned mathematical breakthroughs.
They spent their days in the tower trying to make contact with the workbirds.

It sure sounds like medians used to be very intelligent. Maybe even more so than today? We’re still working on trying to figure out whether that was the case or not.

This comic smarts so much that we had to open up the dictionary many, many times.

We will return to the ancestor-medians and their wall problems, but let us first tell you about what happened in the tower in the meanwhile.

But first-first, Piff will answer some mail next week while we take a little more time to gather material for the next comic pages.

This week we’ll follow the Path to Discovery with these amazing comics:


Heart of Keol – A young man from a broken family wakes up in a strange world filled with magic. As he navigates through the local culture, he makes mistakes, meets new friends, and reflects on his family baggage.


Corner the Maze – Chimalli Ramírez is a racing driver eager to make his mark with a new team. When he finds himself stranded in another dimension after veering off track during a sudden rain storm, he's not sure whether he hit the wall or actually went through the strange glowing green portal, but he's determined to fight his way back home and finish the race. Teen for Violence, disturbing imagery and occasional swearing.


True Magic, the Comic! – A fun fantasy adventure about handsome peasants, the fireball-throwing nobles who use them for target practice, and the dangerous conspiracy they stumble into on their quest for better treatment.
