I love Summer. Most days all I can think about is iced coffee, sand, and the sea. I think this strip is a combination of all three. This strip is a little unusual (for me) in that it doesn’t feature any of my usual characters, but I think it’s good to shake things up a bit every so often. – In a benevolent universe, I’d like to believe that all the squid really wants is some scones, but I can’t say for sure. The coffee cannon atop a Starbucks sailing vessel is a truly ingenious idea. If they had Starbucks ice cream trucks that toured around town spraying kids with iced coffee, I think summertime would be just so exciting. — Let’s all work on making that a reality.
