Dirty seems so incredibly pleased with himself these days. No questioning, no remorse over recent events… never mind that he is probably a wanted man after the authorities found King Tut dead in his office… All bulked up and smiling like he’s got the world by the tail…
All I can say is that the pelican or egret or whatever it is in panel three had better get ready for a long period of awful digestion… I really don’t think that iguana is going to go down or process very well… a great metaphor for Dirty- probably biting off more than he can chew!
Manuel Blanco Romasanta is Spain’s first documented serial killer. In 1853 Romasanta admitted to thirteen murders, claiming he was not responsible as he was suffering from a curse that turned him into a wolf. Wikipedia
Born: November 18, 1809, Province of Ourense, Spain
Died: December 14, 1863, Ceuta, Spain
I detect unplumbed depths in our Mr. Allen, based upon his sly reference to the unnatural amidst his detailed depiction of the natural.
Your reference to Dirty, like the pelican (definitely not a heron), having bitten off more than he could chew is even more perspicacious than might be evident. Romasanta, a/k/a the Wolf of Allariz a/k/a the Tallow Man, confessed at his trial to a spot of cannibalism in addition to making candles of the fat of his victims, pleading not guilty because he had been cursed and committed his murders of various salesmen, officers and customers only during his intermittent involuntary transformations into a werewolf.
