When crossing the ocean, one must choose the transportation method very carefuly.

    You know, the thing I like most about this comic is you make fun of EVERYBODY. The Russians, Germans and Italians were all cannon fodder for you. I can hardly wait to see how you treat the Japanese and Americans.

    So this is why Japan attacked in the first place :/

    @Indagare I can't believe you had the 'gull to make that joke, it just ruffles my feathers so much.

    First off... Go Go Team Tanuki! :D
    And I think I may have just found Nemo. ;)
    Guess they didn’t forget that left turn at Java.
    And how many times did I tell Washington that this anchorage needed anti-scuba nets? O_o

    @Adolph Actually, Japan attacked for ‘political reasons’ related to the United States interfering with Japan’s war in China. But that as they say is ‘history’.

    @WB101 im well aware of why Japan decided to attack the united states of america. I come from Deutschland, and the history textbooks i was taught with had at least 3-4 different chapters based on the political causes that sparked world war war 2. Including why Japan thought it was necessary to fight the americans. I was simply joking along with pretty much all this game/comic is based on to some degree

    @Adolph No problems. I spent 10 years in Education support, and a bit of that background tends to leak through my comments. Sometimes I just say things hoping to spark further intellectual curiosity... kind of like “I wonder what dishes they’ll be serving at that luau?” ;)

    WB101: If we follow the pattern of Germans on the Italian train, they'll (accidentally) infiltrate the buffet and make sushi. Of course, since they're enemies, it'll lead to conflict rather than an alliance.

    ...also, is it too late for me to make a "dog fight" joke?
    because iirc, tanuki are also called "raccoon dogs"; from a vocabulary standpoint, they're legit ~

    I have a question :

    Why the commando are four since the previous strip , and six on the central panel here ?

    One with tortoise , one with swordfish , two with seabird , one seen only by his tail (ahead of the other guys) and the last having only his breathing pipe visible below the dolphin .......... 0_o

    @Ephesus I can see it now. “You got sushi in our poi!” “You got poi on our sushi!” *slap fight commences*

    @Panther I think it’s a perspective thing... sort of like a close-up of a larger group. In panel 1 – you don’t see the guy already swimming to the right of the shot or the guy still in line off-screen to the left of the shot. In panel 3 – you don’t see the one’s off-screen right and left because they’re too close to the camera (or maybe they forgot to take that left turn at Java?).
