So apparently, the grell dropped Clarence on his head. Note the flying whale in panel 2.

That's a nice touch having the bird provide some closure for this extended narrative detour he(?) drug our heroes into. People died, but lessons were learned.

I wish my IQ were high enough to fully understand your comic. Otherwise, I feel sorry for the wombat losing his mind.

French Naval Conquest + Fantasy = Wombat Napoleon Complex.

Wombat is a tad loopy because:

A) Head trauma
B) Near death experience
C) Pieter's healing potion
D) He is Horatio Nelson in an alternate universe past/future life.
E) All of the above

Flying whales and a wren dressed in a period RN uniform, complete with eyepatch, but did Nelson still hang his sword on his left side after his right hand was amputated?

Jolly good question, old fruit! The answer... yes, at least when posing for an artist. ;)

“He piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been an anti-aircraft gun, he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it.”
