Several days ago, I was convinced that this was the most wonderful strip ever. This assumption would prove to be quite wrong. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you today's strip:
The science, of course, is dubious, though there's a chance Spider-Man could overcome being shot with a tranquilizer gun after breathing a bunch of gas. This is also one of the most, if not the most, visually exciting strips that has been on this blog. All of that is secondary to what has got to be the greatest panel ever seen anywhere:
Spider-Man IS NOT an elephant

I assure you that this comic strip has not been altered in any way. Here it is on the Houston Chronicle's page. I cannot say how long that link will work, however. I can assure you that Spider-Man is not an elephant, however. I know this because he told me so. You heard it here first, folks.
Spider-Man IS NOT an elephant

I'm glad he didn't start singin' "Spider-Elephant, Spider-Elephant, does what ever a Spider-Elephant does."

To paraphrase the Elephant man: "I am not an animal! I am a human being! Well... sort of a Spider/Human Being, I guess..."

We must assume that Persuader's tranquilizer pistol was a one-shot, and he doesn't have any more ammo. Otherwise, simple solution: let's find out how many doses it takes to bring down Mr. Non-Elephant Spider-Man.
