The Weirdness

A fantastic, surreal strip like this is almost enough to convince me that Tom Wilson and "Tom II" must be in cahoots with Gahan Wilson. Throw in a couple of comically-grotesque figures and this could nearly pass for one of the more sentimental Wilson panels. Though I can't imply that the two Wilson clans bear any close relation, the prospect of a fish being forced to fight a giant squid seems to have come straight from one of Gahan's sketches.

Fight valiantly, little fish.

EDIT: The ferocity of the unfolding scene almost kept me from noticing Ziggy's pimpin' coat. Almost, but not quite.
