Hangar fire suppression system
This is one of my favorite strips. I like how Chuck is all excited in the first panel about the fact that his state-of-the-art fire suppression system actually worked. I think personally I would be pretty bummed that my planes are buried knee-deep in foam. Let alone the clean-up effort the event will take, I’m pretty sure this foam is probably corrosive as well. But better than your planes getting burned up, huh?!
And then I really love the last panel on here as well. For some reason it took us forever to come up with a good line and we had hundreds of different versions of what is being said when we were working on this strip. The idea initially came from yet another photo circulating around the interwebs of a hangar where the fire suppression system had gone off. We thought it would be really funny if Chuck had this in his dilapidated old hangar with a half-built rusty Corsair in it. But the final product really ties it together as a typical “Chuck-Moment” because he does always take Julio’s welder without permission and he does usually catch something on fire with it.
And with all these elements working together, this strip makes me laugh at our own joke every time I read it. 😉
