This one took me the longest time to figure out. But I’m very satisfied with the result.

I always found it weird in animes like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! or Cardfight! Vanguard how grown man would challenge these kids to duels and then trash talk the shit out of them. I knew there was a pedophile joke in there, it just took me the longest time to figure it out.

I got the initial idea for this one while I was in Toronto for the Toronto Comic ArtĀ Festival something like 3 years ago. I quickly took down a couple of notes in my sketchbook. I drew a sketch of the man-child and something like “Yu-Gi-Oh! – pedo” scribbled next to it. So I had the punchline for a while, it just took some work figuring out the execution.

Anyway, see you next week!
