Change We Can Believe In

Nov 16th, 2012 | By | Category: Ben & Winslow


Today’s strip is all about fire! I wanted to create a strip with Ben and Winslow having a seemingly normal (or what passes for normal in their world) conversation, oblivious to the flames that had suddenly burst to life on their heads. And then at the end, I would hit you all with a profound message or something. See what I did there? I’m educating you through laughter and flammability. And that’s not an easy thing to do. I’m sure my Nobel is already in the mail.

Seriously, though, there is a message to this strip: Global warming will cause everything you love to burst into flames. Your comic books, your family pets, your grandmother, your collection of jams and jellies, your favorite chair, that robot that makes you ice cream sandwiches, all of it. So everyone needs to 1.) stop pretending it doesn’t exist; 2.) stop teaching your children it doesn’t exist; and c.) some third thing.

(If you can’t see the title of the magazine Winslow’s holding, click on the image to get the full-sized view. But if you still can’t see it, the titles change from panel to panel: FLEX!, ARMS WEAKLY, BUFF-Y, TORSO, and FEEL THE BURN.)


Andrew Kaye (known in some circles as AK) is the creator of Ben & Winslow and other questionable comics, many of which can be found in his deviantART gallery. He’s also the editor-in-chief of this magazine. Duh?
