Comicsbeat challenge: Gag panel comic caption switcheroo

Torsten Adair of Comics Beat is suggesting taking “normal” single panel cartoons and switching the captions with “unusual” gag panels. The inspiration for this is a 1983 oops in the Dayton Daily News that accidentally (twice) switched captions from Dennis the Menace with the Farside. You can see the results over on Dangerous Minds.

For this suggested game, Torsten is using the following comics as “normal” and “unusual”. He’s got a full set of rules.

Normal comics

  • Dennis the Menace
  • Marmaduke
  • Heathcliff
  • Family Circus
  • Berry’s World
  • Brother Juniper
  • Andertoons

Unusual comics

  • The Far Side
  • Bizarro
  • New Yorker
  • Herman
  • Willy ‘n Ethel
  • Close to Home
  • Playboy
