Life Comics: Gobies

Thanks for reading this hilarious comic about falling to your death.

My housemates and I have been watching Life, the new BBC nature series from the creators of Planet Earth (the TV series, not the planet). Last night we watched the fish episode, and let me tell you, I had a tough time deciding which part to make a comic about. The gobies won by a nose, but close runners up included the Sarcastic Fringehead and the insanity that is flying fish egg-laying. Life came out in the UK last year, and it starts in America on March 21. The American version loses some points for being narrated by Oprah Winfrey rather than David Attenborough, though. Don't get me wrong, I think Oprah is a cool lady. But why don't they think we Americans are ready for the dulcet grumble of England's greatest treasure?

Nods, of course, to Salmon Doubts by Adam Sacks.
