Comic #1852

1 {scene: The cargo hold of a commercial jetliner}
1 Stewardess: I don't see any large snakes here in the cargo hold.
2 Steve: Crikey! They must be somewhere else!
3 Steve: Er... I mean: Good! Who'd put giant constrictors in their luggage?! Nope, definitely no giant snakes on board. No evidence at all of that!
4 Passenger: Got to take my mind off these snakes in the cabin... Think about something else... Just stare out the window...
5 {large image of the view out a window, where a passenger sees giant snakes on the wing, ripping an engine apart}

Thanks to the artistically talented Andrew Bird once again for providing custom artwork. I struggled for a while thinking how I could illustrate this one with LEGO pieces, but in the end it was far easier (for me) to ask Andrew to have a go at drawing it.

And I'm very glad I did.

2018-10-08 Rerun commentary: This sequence involving the snakes out on the wing is an homage to a classic episode of The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.

Which guest starred William Shatner, no less.
