Being stranded on a deserted island has a way of changing one's priorities. In Simon Roy's very short comic Shipwrecked with Dan the Gorilla, Brian has been living on just such an island with only a talking gorilla for company. But when Brian has the opportunity to escape, will it affect his friendship with Dan?

Roy originally created Shipwrecked as a 24-hour comic, meaning that he conceived of it, wrote it, and drew it in a 24-hour period. This is the redrawn version, a tale of platonic love that will leave you with a sigh and an overwhelming urge to call your gorilla best friend.
