The Trademark Awakens (With Spoilers)

Comic Transcript

MONK: Hey Alex! Happy New Year!

ALEX: Hmngh.

KING: Uh-oh. Problem over the holidays?

ALEX: You might say that.

MONK: What happened?

ALEX: You know. The usual.

KING: The usual?

MONK: His dad likes to put up a nativity every year, but replaces all the Biblical figures with pop cultural references. Four years ago he did a Star Trek Nativity that was awesome. It almost always pisses off the neighbors and brings the police.

ALEX: Not the police this time. Lawyers.

MONK: …what kind of display did your dad put up?

ALEX: Darth Maul, Darth Tyranus, and Darth Vader approach a manger where Han Solo and Leia Organa are holding a baby Kylo Ren in their arms. Luke Skywalker stands over as the angel, holding aloft a red lightsaber as the Christmas Star.

MONK: So he’s getting sued by Disney, then.

ALEX: Lots and lots of lawyers.
