“La Duke’s Tips For Real Men”
Writer: Beau Smith
Artist: Tim Harkins
Lesson one. La Duke has written a book on how to be a real man. He has Scout with him.
Tip#1 Wear Jackets that will cover your manly accessories like guns and knives.
Tip#2 Wear your hair short.
Don’t wear hair long or have a skirt or ever wear makeup. He is pointed this out on Scout who gets visibly angry and pulls his pistol.
Final Tip Know when to say bye.
So another chapter in the Scout saga comes to a close. Doody ends up blowing himself up in an explosion in orbit. VP Loper has succeeded in showing the public the dangers of being weak and Scout finds himself a captive. The short Monday storyline also ties up nicely. Both characters will come together in the next storyline. Everything tied up nicely and sets the stage for an exciting new plot.
The La Duke tips was hilarious. A frivolous one page feature. Some great comedy relief in a very serious comic.
