The other day Warren Frantz challenged me to the Helium Challenge. It’s a lot like the Ice Bucket Challenge, in the sense that they both have “challenge” in their names. No charities benefit, and no one gets wet, but we do raise awareness of cartoon physics…and in the end, isn’t that what really matters?

The infamous Jon Esparza came up with this idea, and the rules are simple: draw a comic with a helium gag, challenge up to two other cartoonists, and use the tag #HeliumChallenge when posting. I’ve put Mark Stokes up to the challenge, but don’t worry, there’s no deadline! So take your time and have fun with it!
