The bizarre Kaz storyline of awesomeness continues! My only complaint of the day: Kaz resolves this conflict without punching the guy in the face. Some Mark Trail-style fists o’ fury would have been nice. I guess we’ll have to be satisfied with him dragging out drunky by the shirt and dumping him on the curb. In fact, considering drunk dude is about to raise his fist to pummel the reanimated corpse of Walter Cronkite/Burt Lancaster/Mr. Blue, I’m surprised at the apparent ease at which Kaz gets him outside. I guess it’s a testament to Kaz, his muscles, and his jedi mind powers that he resolved this so handily. That, or the guy was baffled trying to figure out why the hell Bob is wearing pearl earrings and thus forgot to fight back.
Kaz’s awesomeness as a future action hero is also solidified by his ability to say something clever and pithy right after besting the bad guy. OK, so it’s actually kind of a weird, awkward line, but for this strip ya gotta take what you can get. Definitely the best Detroit Lions-trashing reference since that dude with the Fire Millen sign.
Up next, Kaz takes the summer job of Gail Martin’s bodyguard! (Keep your fingers crossed…)
