This strip came out of Izak discovering that dogs have a tendency to eat their dead owner’s face, before any other body part. There’s no way of knowing (without a quick Google search) exactly why this is, but it seems to be a domesticated behaviour. Wolves, for example, will just rip into the belly straight away – easy access and plenty nutritious organs just sitting there for the taking. I like to think that dogs start on the face as a sort of tribute – one last act of communion with their former master. That’s probably horseshit, but it sounds good and I’m sticking with it.
Take a peek at the video clip below for a portion of the Twitch stream for this comic, in which Izak, Becky and I discuss family friendly sponsorship, condom flavoured babies and sperm obstacle courses.
