Drinking in the Funny Pages: The Menace is Too Much Vermouth


Dennis’s father is a martini man, clearly, which fits nicely with the 1950s aesthetic of the comic. I’m actually rather concerned about the fellow in the foreground—who holds a glass like that? Try it, it’s painful.

I myself have never received a call from the city water utility during the normal cocktailing hour, so I’m assuming these people are boozing it up mid-morning. No judgment. Just an observation.
