More Born Loser Books

"Hey, Brutus, How Do You Want Your Goose Cooked?" has a really creepy cover. Not only is the only light coming from behind Gladys but you just know she killed that goose with her bare hands.

"Untitled Born Loser Book" shows Brutus holding up some paper cut-out dolls. As you can see, Brutus messed up that one near Hurricane Hattie so everyone is mad at him. Brutus is also just a couple inches taller than Wilberforce and Hattie while Gladys and Veeblefester tower over him like Big Bird towers over Ernie.

On a side note, I am glad that Wilberforce and Hattie have gotten modern makeovers as I could not handle them looking like that on a day to day basis.

"Yet Another Untitled Born Loser Book" has Brutus sitting on a freshly-painted bench. A freshly painted bench in the winter. Because what's the point of being a born loser if you don't sit on wet paint?

"Heads I Win, Tails You Lose!" has a nice close-up of Brutus' face. Does Brutus not care about his money because he does not seem interested in even attempting to catch the coin he flipped into the air and seems oblivious to the fact that the coin is about to drop into the sewer grate. Granted, based on this strip's history of perspective, the coin is a penny anyway.

"The Born Loser Bares All" has Brutus' doctor laughing at him. That's never a good sign when your doctor laughs at you but I think it would be funnier if the doctor was checking Brutus for testicular cancer and laughing.
