“Can it be a coincidence that Death comics virtually died three weeks after you announced DeathMatch? And the past weeks, it seems as if ‘Adam, and Eve’ is looking for its own title.
“I’m sending you this instead of posting it in Random Comments because I suspect there might be a joke here.”
My best guess here is that the animals are being banished because they ate forbidden vegetables and nuts. But is this possible to figure out without the throwaway panel showing the ferrety-looking creature eating a carrot? Otherwise we just see a squirrel eating an acorn, which itself isn’t enough to show a pattern.
And if this is the correct interpretation (which of course it might not be), what in God’s name were the animals supposed to have eaten?
Just as an aside, I’ve always been impressed that the Tree of Knowledge taught Adam and Eve that they had different naughty bits they needed to cover.
