Thanks! Lol
Ellen's assistant is kind of like Spock from Star Trek, he has no room for irrational emotions that impede the efficiency of his logical mind.
And, he's kind of a dick. Lol

Radiation levels. Yep, better be paranoid just in case!

I wonder how they cook a WHOLE animal like that :D

Thanks for stopping by MadJak91!
I am guessing that the Mayans probably shoved a stake through the Tapir's backside and then rotisserie roasted it over a fire! Lol And from the way I illustrated the Tapir, I think it looks quite delicious!
Plus, like I said above, Ellen's assistant is kind of an insensitive prick. He doesn't even bother to take into consideration all the hard work and effort the villagers put in to preparing a delicious banquet for him and his group, nor does he even care if they may be offended by his statement. By the way, I hear South America is about the least radioactive place on earth right now so it is kind of bizarre that he would be checking for radiation in the first place. Lol

No problem!
I actually subbed during the long break believing this comic actually has a chance. And I was right :D

Anyway, they did a great job roasting it then. It looks like the tapir is just tanned :D
And its expression is kind of... happy about it...

Tapir... the other pork! With salsa & corn & beans. Yeah, I'd be chowing down on this grub... even if it is ever so slightly radioactive.

You know I did a little research on the South American diet when doing this page, and it seems that everything that they eat is incredibly healthy and all natural. In contrast I think the average American diet is quite toxic!
Thanks for stopping by Mr Kwon!

please tell me it taste like chicken right? :)

nice work! :)

AS far as the taste of Tapir goes, your guess is as good as mine Shinka!
Maybe it tastes like tuna instead of chicken!
Actually, I imagine it tasting like a cross between chicken and steak.
Yuuumm!

...Which suggests there might well be a need for radiation checks around here. I gotta get me one of those things.

Off camera, some kid is tugging on his mother's skirts and saying, "Madre, where is Peppe? I cannot find my tapir..."

My dad once lost a dog in our neighborhood, and to this day he thinks some Central Americans ate him! Lol
Perhaps this Tapir was someone's pet!
Also, the radiation check was more of a joke than a foreshadowing of things to come necessarily.
Thanks for stopping by!

So noted! Then the glow effect accompanying the tapir's first appearance may have just been a dramatic reveal glow rather than a "We found him down a uranium mine" glow. :) Keep up the good work.

I use the "outer glow" effect in Photoshop a lot because helps to create contrast in certain scenes when I want a subject to stand out. This glow has confused people in the past as well. One reader thought that Brock was emanating a spiritual energy because of it. Perhaps I need to use a different technique to achieve the contrast I am looking for, but outer glow is so quick and easy.

Ummm Radiation levels? What kind of hot sauce are they using for the love of god!!!

Panel 3 backgrounds are excellent by the way!

Thanks! I got a little carried away in panel 3. Glad you appreciate it!
Also, Ellen's assistant is hyper cautious to the point of absurdity. Lol
Thanks for stopping by bro!

"Normal" is my ideal level of radiation in any food product.

Beautiful page Chris! Keep up the awesome work!

I shouldn't have read this page when I was hungry. Now I'm gonna be craving roast Tapir all day....

I hear roast Tapir is as addictive as cocaine!! Once you try some, you can never eat anything else ever again!
Kidding! Lol
But I am curious to know what it tastes like myself. I guess I will have to travel to South America now.
Thank you for dropping in!

I think too much radiation takes away from the flavor. Great looking page.

You sound like you have been living and eating near Fukushima lately!
Lol Kidding!
Glad to see you back! I can't wait to read all your updates!

good to know that it is not microwaved

chris-tar
Lol That is funny!
Seriously though, we should all throw out our microwaves. I have read that the microwave process actually creates toxic compounds in our foods!
Cooking things over an open flame the old fashioned way is the best method!
But who has time for that!?! Death by microwave I guess! Ha Ha Ha Ha!

If only people from the Northern hemisphere could say the same thing about our food! What with all the nuclear bomb testing and the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear radiation swirling through the air and sea!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a delightful looking feast! I've got to put mayan cuisine on my list of things to try.
