Comic #688

1 Monty: Here we are. Santorini! {the ship slips majestically into the tiny island harbour}
2 Prof. Jones: Yes. We have to be careful. Dr Smith and the Nazis are well ahead of us.
3 Prof. Jones: Who knows what dreadful sort of nasty reception awaits us on these docks...
4 Minnesota Jones: {standing on the dock as the ship pulls alongside} Well you boys certainly took your sweet time!
4 Monty: Grandad!
4 Prof. Jones: Pop!

And so Schliemannian Chair of Archaeology Minnesota Jones returns. We last saw him back in #553.

The background in the first two panels is a photo I took of the Isle of Capri in Italy. Beautiful place. If you ever visit Italy, I recommend it.

The last two panels re-use the photo of a Greek harbour I got off morgueFile.

2014-01-09 Rerun commentary: One thing - or rather two things - to be wary of when visiting Capri, as stated in a travel guide I read somewhere some time:

Capri is known for two things: perfume and lemon liqueur (limoncello). The perfume smells like lemons, and the liqueur tastes like perfume.

There are certainly a lot of lemons on Capri. Giant, mutant lemons. Here's a photo I took of some.

Mutant lemon
