My favorite part of this strip is the first line in the first panel where Chuck is a hero in his own mind and “totally lost for the first time in his life”. LOL.
Actually, Chuck has the potential to be a great survivor. Every survival manual mentions how important the right attitude is and Chuck is a poster child for positive attitude. No matter how many times he’s already been beaten down, he starts every day with a good outlook on life. His slightly skewed view of his world in which he is god and everybody loves him helps I am sure. And the gift of having a wild imagination, which he proves in this strip, can’t be a hindrance either.
