Penny Arcade - Missing the Point - R.A. Wonsowski
Panel 1 - A pastiche of the cover of Uncanny X-Men 123, except instead of the usual mutants, INSPECTOR GADGET is running and malfunctioning between the giant pinball bumpers. The inset panel shows the face of his niece PENNY, gasping in fear as she looks on. In the background, the giant ginger head of ARCADE cackles behind his hideous bow tie.
CAPTION: Penny vs. Arcade in MurderWorld (pat.pend.) - with Gadget in the Crossfire!!!
Panel 2 - TYCHO points at ME, in a Deadpool mask, flannel checked shirt, khakis, and barefoot, shrugging my shoulders, arguing with NIEL JACOBY, who is facepalming. GABE shares the same posture.
CAPTION: Y'see?!? This is what happens when you're not here, Niel! SHAME!!!
ME: Hey, it made sense to me...
