The mystery of Hog Island

[Henry, August 24, 2014.]

Today’s Henry (which is always yesterday’s Henry, as the strip is in reruns) raises an urgent question: where are Henry and his unidentified comrade headed? They could be preparing to visit an island in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, New York, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, or Wisconsin. Or an island in Australia, the Falklands, Guyana, or Honduras. Or a now-defunct Philadelphia neighborhood that was not an island. That last possibility might require a time machine, not a frying pan.

Henry is a city kid, surrounded by stores selling Novelties and Notions and Meats. So I cast a vote for the Bronx’s Hog Island, though I too have no idea how to get there.

[Arizona has islands? Yes. My choice for the best New York island aside from Manhattan: City Island.]
