"umbrella man" not shown because like these clowns can draw an umbrella

Those on the lookout for thrilling, edgy cartoons (and what the hell does "edgy" mean anyway?

Sadly, the strip, as published, reverted to its unusual incomprehensibility and poorly drawn quasi-human figures (as always, click to illargenate):
