I will explain myself.
My problem with the two punch-out panels is not that they're too similar. It's not that they're too cliche. It's not that they look bad (they both look great as a matter of fact).
My problem is that, visually, IT'S THE SAME JOKE.
I don't care what you do, or who you work for, if you're just re-hashing old ideas, you're failing.
