Triple Ginger


 I sketched this out and didn't get around to inking or digitalizing because I just really like it and wanted to post it quickly. Triple Ginger Cookies are delicious and have ground ginger, crystallized ginger, and fresh ginger in them. Here's a recipe

This comic was semi-inspired by a meme I saw about a person reading a recipe and getting to the ingredient "ground ginger" - at this, he exclaims "as opposed to what, sky ginger?" Clearly he is confusing "ground" meaning to grind something up with "ground" as in earth. 

Explanation: In the cartoon "Avatar: The Last Airbender", their world is divided into four countries: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. The Fire Nation tries for world domination, and the intro sequence for the show mentions "everything changed when the fire nation attacked." I took "ground" ginger to be from the Earth Kingdom, so it follows that sky ginger would be from the Air Nomads and water ginger from the Water Tribes. 

The initials below are referencing characters in Batman: Alfred (the butler), Dick Grayson, Tim Drake, and Jason Todd (Bruce Wayne's sons). I considered having the last line said by Bruce, but thought of that after it was written and didn't want to find the space to add another person.

Text:
A: Enjoy these triple ginger cookies, young sirs.
D: Whoa, how are there three types of ginger?
A: Well first there is ground ginger.
D: Ok.
T: Then there is sky ginger.
A: No-
J: Thirdly there is water ginger.
D: I think I've had that kind in lo mein.
A: That would be water chestnut.
T: But everything changed when the fire gingers attacked.
