“The Name”




To think that just a few years ago an Avengers joke would have fallen completely on its face. Perhaps it still did…Anyway, bonus points to the astute reader who can name all of the corresponding superhero names of the Avengers listed here.

By the way, choosing a name has been the most challenging part of this experience. There’s a lot of pressure when you think about it. Is the name overused? How will it fare on the playground? How does it sound when being yelled?

One last thing – this is the first strip I’ve done mostly digitally courtesy of a Wacom Bamboo tablet my parents got me for Christmas last year. There are a few kinks to work out, but I felt as a first stab at it that this strip turned out alright. Let me know what you think!

    We struggled with naming the Little Prince too. Definitely one of the more stressful parts of it all. I’m not sure if that’s common or not… don’t some people have their baby names picked out from when they were playing house when they were little?
