No missionaries were harmed in the creation of today's gag.

Testimony Translation

Poor Elder Ryan is going to have a hard time speaking "bro" in Laputanian.

E for Exit

Given the news of the last week, I pretty much had to publish a Boy Scout gag today, didn't I?

Speak Your Language

We got in trouble every time we tried to speak our language in the MTC cafeteria. (Although to their credit, the cafeteria workers were infinitely more patient than the one featured in today's strip.)

Hope They Call Me on a Mission

Come to think of it, the lyrics of "I Hope They Call Me on a Mission" don't make much sense. There's a pretty clear path to missionary service laid out in front of any prospective missionary regardless of whether or not he or she experiences a growth spurt.

Still, it is quite catchy.

Dear John

This is the first strip of many where Elder Van Dyke's companion gets "Dear Johned." I decided early in the strip that it would be funny to have every one of Van Dyke's companions loose a girlfriend while serving with him. Of course, it's always more funny when it happens to someone else.

(Not that Elder Van Dyke didn't experience something similar himself.)

2017 Summer Movie Preview

Today's gag comes from faithful reader Klinton H.

Today is May 4th (as in "May the 4th be with you"), tomorrow is the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. All this can mean only one thing: it's time for my annual summer movie preview! The only movie preview on the web where no movies are actually previewed!

So, is anyone else feeling a little burned out over all the Superhero fare available at the googolplex these days? I've dutifully watched every movie in the Marvel cinematic universe in movie theaters and will continue to do so probably at least until Avengers 4, but I find myself getting less and less excited about them. (As for the DC movies, I barely made it through Batman V Superman and skipped Suicide Squad altogether.)

I suspect some of my fatigue has to do with the sheer number of superhero movies to chose from. I mean, you need something more in your diet than dessert, right?
