    I love it when the guys go all in on ridiculous concepts like this.

    That's what Dogear gets for throwing Michael into the fungus dehydrator.

    It took me longer than it should have (near end of 2nd panel) to realize it was Dreaded Continuity.

    But alas, Dreaded Continuity done right. I want a full Dogear comic book at this point.

    So now he knows the plans of a supervillain who is presumably on the other side of the world, given the time difference. Does he have any powers or special skills to deal with the issue? Or is the next panel him looking up the phone number for the local police precinct where that dog is? (Assuming he actually knows where the dog itself is)

    There's no time difference. It's just always night and raining wherever Dogear is.

    You've got me imagining a person cursed to have this happen to them. You'd need them constantly circling the globe in a plane just to avert a planetary disaster. Not to mention the weird effects on the planet's rotation. It would be an interesting short story.

    It's slightly more manageable if it just causes localized darkness and not actual holding that section of the Earth facing away from the sun.
    Depending on if the rain is spontaneously generated or has to pull moisture from somewhere it could be useful to just give him cabins next to all the major reservoirs.

    He knows both the Vilain's name and civilian identity, even if he does not have the power to locate the dog, he can pretty easily look up where the supervilain "Redcap" operate, what would be "First National Bank" of that place and contact the relevant authorities / local heroes.

    No, the real question would be how Michael Onid can have a civilian identity when he has that very distinctively... fungic look.

    On a side note the commentary mentions that someone mentioned on Twitter that they like the mobile site because scrolling through the panels gives you a cool reveal, and I completely agree.

    I gotta agree as well, that last panel have perfect impact with the effect of surprise.

    Spoiler: as a villain he drives a mech wearing a Carmen Sandiego style fedora. The mushroom man is his secret identity.

    There's a funny chapter in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy where a person thinks they're cursed as it is always raining where they are. Like Eskimos for snow, he comes up with many names for different kinds of rain.

    On the new mobile scrolling format, the third panel hits like a... Something that hits pretty hard. It's very funny!

    He never realises it, but he is actually a God of Rain, and rain follows him wherever he goes to worship him
    “And as he drove on, the rainclouds dragged down the sky after him, for, though he did not know it, Rob McKenna was a Rain God. All he knew was that his working days were miserable and he had a succession of lousy holidays. All the clouds knew was that they loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him, and to water him.”
