(It’s been nearly two years since the last time we checked in on the unlikely yet fan-favorite duo of ANIMAL MAN and GORILLA GRODD – seems another visit is in order.
This time, the two found themselves somehow stranded far away from Earth! Good thing SPACE CABBY was there to lend a hand! Or is it…?)
Panel 1: ANIMAL MAN and GORILLA GROOD are stuffed in the back seat of SPACE CABBY’s SPACE CAB. ANIMAL MAN looks like he should be a lot more uncomfortable than he’s letting on, but he’s hiding just how squished he is right now for the sake of keeping thing – and GRODD – peaceful. In an unusual turn of events, SPACE CABBY looks concerned as he drives.
SPACE CABBY (1): Uh oh…
GRODD: ‘Uh Oh’ what?
SPACE CABBY (2): Seems we have a problem the likes of which I’ve never seen.
SPACE CABBY (3): I have no idea where we are!
Panel 2: GORILLA GRODD looks ready to get violent, but ANIMAL MAN is doing a pretty good job of holding him back. For the moment, at least.
GRODD: I swear, if you don’t fix that problem, I will feast on your brains!
ANIMAL MAN: My apologies for my friend here.
Panel 3: ANIMAL MAN looks at GRODD with a ‘tsk tsk shame on you’ look.
GRODD is not amused.
ANIMAL MAN: As I keep trying to tell him, he has anger issues.
Panel 4: ANIMAL MAN leans forward to see if he can help SPACE CABBY with his problem. He also looks secretly relieved to get a brief moment to stretch, if only just a little.
ANIMAL MAN: What seems to be the problem?
SPACE CABBY (1): I’m not quite sure.
SPACE CABBY (2): It’s almost as if…
BUGS BUNNY: (Off Panel) Eh…
SFX: *munch munch*
Panel 5: SPACE CABBY, ANIMAL MAN, and GORILLA GRODD all look out the windows. Standing there, leaning on the cab and enjoying a carrot is BUGS BUNNY.
This panel should also give us the first real good look at their surroundings, which should look like a wilderness scene taken from a LOONY TUNES cartoon.
BUGS BUNNY: Like ya took a wrong turn as Albaquoique?
SFX: *munch munch*
I remember when I first joined this site, you trotted this combo out. It's the buddy comedy that just keeps on giving. Thanks for bringing back Buddy and Grodd back!
I was glad to bring them back. They kind of snuck up on me to the point where I didn't expect to use them till this Monday (11/24 - they're a sneaky pairing, they!), but I'm certainly not going to complain finding any fun opportunity to make use of them.Delete
