Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He is going to help Scruffy.
From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:
Probably we’re going to learn some valuable lessons about ugly hermits with hearts of gold and not judging a book by its cover and blah blah blah, but really today’s final panel makes it look like the guy is coolly examining the unconscious kid with his single eye, trying to determine how best to cook and eat him.
To be unconscious the brain would have had to rattle in the skull. Serious injury indeed.
I hope it turns out that this guy’s name is “Winky.”
