Monty (5/4/09)


I suppose this qualifies as one of those instances in which the cartoonist asks the reader to imagine a world beyond the boundaries of the strip’s panels. That must be the case since this fortune teller’s digs seem anything but opulent. Although her customer seems impressed, all I see in these panels is a small table, a crystal ball and an empty, light brown wall. Maybe this woman is using the power of suggestion to trick her customer into thinking he’s visiting the Taj Mahal when what he’s really doing is crouching in a rickety chair on the first floor of a single room occupancy hotel. Who knows, maybe she’ll use that same power of suggestion to unload some of those biodiesel-fueled electric generators she’s talking up in panel four.
