The Confusion of Captain Wassock
Captain Wassock is an enthusiastic soul, always looking for opportunities to do good in the world.
But finding those opportunities is harder than Captain Wassock thought.
Captain Wassock was first featured in HOW TO SURVIVE A PANDEMIC. But here is the original drawing from Benbo's sketchbook:
Captain Wassock is pure and innocent and will do you no wrong.
However, Captain Wassock's guileless and obliging nature is easily exploited by unscrupulous operators.
For example, when posing for pictures requested by Benbo, Captain Wassock claims they were unaware of their intended use. The image release form presented to Captain Wassock was significantly shielded from view - to the extent, according to the Captain, that it was presented merely as a space for practicing signatures using a novelty Benbo pen.
In fact, it appears to have been an assignment of all rights in perpetuity with no financial recompense.
Benbo went on to coerce Captain Wassock into changing their costume to one designed and owned by Benbo:
Benbo charges Captain Wassock rent for this new costume, which Captain Wassock is forced to pay, because Benbo has burned their old costume and confiscated the Captain's wardrobe.
To make matters worse, this new costume severely restricts Captain Wassock's movement, resulting in arm cramps and facial atrophy.
Benbo has since moved into Captain Wassock's flat and rewired the electricity meter to avoid payment. Captain Wassock has been receiving correspondence from the electricity company for some months, culminating in a summons for non-payment of electricity bills and unauthorised tampering with network assets.
As a result, Captain Wassock has become very seriously confused and is currently dependant on community support for daily food and, on some nights, shelter.
Will you consider donating to Captain Wassock's ongoing legal expenses and to their emergency fund?
Sign below to raise awareness of this egregious case of exploitation.
Also, definitely do not purchase any Captain Wassock merchandise as this will only enrich the exploiter at the expense of our sweet, gauche hero.
Solidarity with all those wronged by Benbo.
