The Darker Side of The Spoon is a comic strip starring an amphibian shark, named Mako, and a one-eyed cat, named Meouch.

Both Mako and Meouch were test animals for the evil cosmetics company Lippzig Inc.

After many years of tests and torture the scientist in charge of them decided to ship them to the company headquarters.

The plane carrying the cargo crate, in which they were being held, somehow dropped them somewhere in the Middle East.

They now live in an abandoned basement close to a local market.

Like their creator, Sardine, they are completely bonkers …

Sardine is a man-fish out of water … a man-fish in the Middle East.

He considers himself lucky to have Mako and Meouch enact his paneled plays.
