  1. @ B.A. – I realize that due to oversaturation, many (and possibly most) comic readers are no longer very receptive to Covid-19 humor, but I thought that putting “Death” in the position of “catching” a potentially fatal disease was an acceptable pun. Granted, I decided to interpret the “I knew…” line as meaning “Oh rats, now I have to go into quarantine“, rather than “Oh goody, now I can use this on all my potential ‘clients’“. If the latter interpretation were the only possible reading, that would be sufficient grounds to quit reading Liō.

  2. “but I thought that putting “Death” in the position of “catching” a potentially fatal disease was an acceptable pun.”

    I *just* posted on puns not needing to work on Argyle Sweater about the squirels and the “have and have nuts”. My point was if puns make you chuckle they don’t necessarily need to work. But for this Lio I’m doing a 180. The pun doesn’t work at all. If your fishing you *want* to catch things. Death being Death, one assumes he is immune to diseases or at least is unharmed by them and he doesn’t fear death the way we do and can’t really die anyway. This doesn’t really work for me.
