Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! (2/24/10)

Sometimes I read a comic strip and think of the missed opportunities, the subtle touches that could have transformed it from a decent strip into an instant classic. Unfortunately, today’s Brewster Rockit seems to fit that mold perfectly. The expressions worn by the human crew members in panel two are inspired, and deserving of a better punchline. My preference would have been a silent third panel, showing an ominous set of closed elevator doors. That would have left things to the reader’s imagination, and while it may not have been funny, perse, it certainly would have been memorable.
