Apologies for the extra delay, I didn't intend this one to come out black and white but there were a couple crashes. One, I was just super sleepy! and Two, well the compy crashed! I'm blaming that one on Flash for now. No promises but I'd like to clean this one up a bit later.

Considering they're pretty damn big, it'd be a safe bet they're also pretty damn strong. However, just like with a lot of large sea creatures they'd die under the pressure of their own body weight if they ended beached.

Good question. Where's Alan Davies when you need him?

I don't know about Blue Whales but one of the boats I fish around got their anchor line tangled up with a Sperm Whale.
Since the anchor winch was bolted to the fiberglass wheelhouse, the entire wheelhouse was pulled a little more than a foot forward of it's original position before crewmen were able to sever the anchor cable. The whale had drug them for about one Nautical mile (six regular miles). They spend 5 months and quite a bit of money on repairs. So I'd say whales in general are pretty powerful.

Also, given the theme of this comic, I think that black and white is perfect for this setting. It looks rather nice in my own opinion.

I wonder where the figure of 6 regular miles comes from? It's waaaaay off standard, which is that a nautical mile is 1.15078 English miles or 1.852 kilometers.

There were such big differences in the length of a mile before most of Europe adopted the metric system. A Prussian mile was something like 8 Saxon miles or 5 English miles, but I don't think either Prussia or Saxony had a sea-coast.

Oh here's a better explanation: a nautical mile is (a little less than) 1/6 longer than an English mile. Mis-remembering could turn it into "6 times".
