My hope for Immanuel Incognito is to offer a mixture of strips with more serious punch lines and strips that are more lighthearted in nature. The strip above certainly falls into the latter category.
According to my “test group,” it also falls into the “people might not get this joke” category. The reference isn’t THAT obscure, but I guess not everyone is familiar with the account of one of Jesus’ stranger miracles. If you’re having trouble, open your bible to Matthew 17:24-27 and take a look.
Hopefully you remember that story now. If it’s new to you (or even if it’s not), feel free to leave a comment and thank me for the enlightenment. More importantly, thank YOU for taking the time to read my comic!
