(#36) Brian: No fishing allowed
This episode is based on real life. Joe and I sometimes play games with our friends Don and Patty. Patty and I sometimes take Lisa's cooperative approach to discards and other set-ups, which makes Joe and Don roll their eyes.
I originally had a different comic planned for today, but I just had to change my plans when I found these miniature playing cards at Pacific Place yesterday.
I've been wanting to do a card game shoot with the action figures for a while now, but it's awkward with normal-sized cards. These mini cards are just the thing.

What's Lisa sitting on? Is that an inverted chinese tea cup?
Also, what are they using for a table?
Good eye! Lisa and Jane ARE sitting on inverted Chinese tea cups. The table is a little wooden box that originally held a 30-soap gift set from Bliss Soaps (you can glimpse the upside-down logo in panels 1 & 4). The box is sitting on a plastic drinking cup to raise it to table height.
You can't see it in these shots, but Alex is sitting on a watch box and Brian is sitting on an inverted coconut shell that used to be a candleholder. Those props were also used in #31 http://www.trishtales.com/a...
and #32 http://www.trishtales.com/a...
It's part of my concept of this world that the action figures adapt human-scale items to their own uses.
That's a good episode, I like it
What a creativity!
