Sam has a hidden phone? That’s the kind of well-equipped, ready-for-action hero we like to see! Now if only he had a couple of reliable friends…
I’ve said this before but apparently I haven’t learned my lesson yet. This strip is always better when Terry is around. Sure, sure, there’s a concern about too much of a good thing and the guy could potentially overstay his welcome. But he never fails to bring a smile to my face and we need to do a better job of keeping him a part of Sam’s life.
Be sure and come back next week for a peek at some of the Pteroputer’s secret files and the reveal of a few new villains!
To be perfectly honest, the idea of clones wasn’t immediately dismissed. My first thought was that Terry would scoff at the accusation of him cloning Sam, offended at the very idea. Then in the last panel we’d reveal he’d actually cloned Maurice and was using several ape copies of him to do work around his mansion. But the logic of it all (and what it would say about Terry) eventually trumped my deep desire for monkey butlers.
