And I don’t understand this

Hagar the Horrible, 6/8/05

  1. Hagar the Horrible has decided to cheat on his wife.
  2. Hagar the Horrible has decided to cheat on his wife … with Vampyra, queen of the undead!

I’m not sure which I find more disturbing. Is Hagar’s decision to stray from the marital vows he took before Odin, Freya, and all the Valkryries supposed to just serve as a setup for this joke (or “joke,” if you prefer)? Or are we going to be treated (or “treated,” if you prefer) to intermittent “Lookin’ for love in all the wrong places” strips?

I’m just a simple comics reader looking for answers. I do like the composition of the second panel though: Hagar stares off into the distance, having been made a fool of, with the word balloon containing the phrase that was the agent of his humiliation hanging mockingly over his head.
