We hijacked some old 1940s and 1950s comic books and re-wrote the word balloons to make them funny! It’s WHAT’S UP, TIGER LILY? for comic books, or comedy in the vein of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. Featuring a cutting, irreverent sense of humor that refuses to honor boundaries and has no problem cranking the sarcasm past the point of biting, WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?! proved to be a surprise sleeper hit that snuck up on the comic book market and painted a mustache on its upper lip while it was sleeping.
