Lost Continent

Here's something for a hot July day. It's from the Post Magazine of a year or two ago. I redid it as a daily too, but I like this one. All those tube slides and ladders & gantries and stuff was fun to draw, and Dill's dreamy fantasizing between Alice's insisent practicality was fun to write.

I love how the slides look a bit intestinal. As though they may actually be waiting to digest unwary children. You always wonder with these things.

Good eye, Susan. I'd tried to think of a strip with that intestinal imagery but it kept turning into a fart joke and I hesitated to use it.
