Shower Powered

(R; Violent Humor) All our unnamed hero wants to do is get through his morning routine in peace. Little does he know today would be his last …again.

Story Notes

First installment of a "Wacky Accidents" series, in which the same character dies from a different household accident. The protagonist's visual appearance is based on Richard Sanders (who played Les Nessman on WKRP in Cincinnatti).

This episode was drawn sometime in the Summer of 2003, and takes place in Inman Square, a neighborhood in Cambridge Massachusetts. The apartment, furnishings — even the Howard Stern interview with Dave Chappelle are real.

I tried to invent a quicker, more relaxed drawing style. Like "Zip’s Last Day" and "Dead by the Pool", no trees were harmed in the production or creation of this comic.

Dave M!, it's not how you die, it's how you get back up.
