The perils of reading Michael Kupperman

I'm really getting into Michael Kupperman's work, I enjoy how his comics present absurd situations which characters underplay for humourous effect. As I worked my way through my stack of new comics last week, I began reading Tales Designed to Thrizzle#6:




Then I picked up a copy of Jay Faerber & Simone Guglielmini's Near Death#2, the new series about a hitman who tries to turn his life around and save lives:


Ha-ha- wait a minute, that's not funny.

I had to set Near Death#2 down for about 5 minutes then start reading again. It seems that after a little bit of Kupperman, you start seeing jokes everywhere.
