Here’s the other one I did with pen. It doesn’t look as good as it could, even with me reworking the lines. 
I redid the lettering too, mostly because when I inked it, when I did the borders, I had the ruler a couple steps off where it shoulda been and I covered part of a line and it wasn’t gonna work. Hurrumph. 
For comparison, here’s my original attempt at inking the pencil drawings.
Edit: In hindsight I think I subconsciously stole the punchline, in a roundabout way, from Mike Birbiglia, so really, I think this is a Mike Birbiglia joke. I’m not taking it down because I did it more as an exercise than anything else, and on that level, I think, as a document of attempted work, it’s useful to keep it in place, but I’m pretty sure the joke is something that Birbiglia already did, and I don’t want to look like I’m intentionally stealing his shit, I’m a big fan of his work. And it didn’t occur to me at the time.
