"The Spawning Run"

Actually spaced out in the middle of the supermarket while waiting for some deli goods and daydreamed this panel up ("Sir? SIR? DO YOU NEED HELP?").
You'll notice a lot of messups in the scan of the original: that's partly on account of it being done in a sketchbook (as opposed to taping up a Bristol on the board at the studio) so I wasn't really caring all that much - just getting the idea down was the main point. But with some digital tweaks it eventually got wrangled into a publishable state. I'm rather proud of the salmon steaks, though the jury's still out on whether or not indicating some sort of transparent wrap would have tipped the, ah, scales into overkill on details that don't particularly matter. Even the caption underwent some major editing - somewhere along the continuum there's a balance between verbosity and brevity. Like many a blog post.
