Ever since I began Manta-Man, I’ve been eagerly waiting to pull out the silly gag you see in the first strip of this week’s installment. So I hope you liked it.

In fact, this week’s Manta-Man has a number of moments that I really love, and I’m hoping to incorporate more scenes of transcendent silliness into future strips, even though the “plot” of Manta-Man is taking off for this second story arc, Man-to-Man.

It’s clear from this week’s cliffhanger ending that Manta-Man’s first crime-fighting expedition has gotten off to an unexpected start, so stay tuned for the truly outrageous twists and turns this story will take!
