The comic strips have 2 squares that show the following types of irony: Situational, Verbal and Dramatic.
I really think that i'll get the promotion today!
Oh, Okay then....it has been a pleasure working for you sir.
Sorry Steve but we have to let you go. It's just not working out for the company and it is just best if you go.
Steve believes that he will get the promotion that he has worked so hard for.
Nice place you have here.....
Oh thank you so much your majesty!
Things took a turn for the worst, sadly Steve has been fired. This is an example of situational irony.
The king of Bristle and his son are going to the local village to show his son to appreciate his life and what he has
The king a son had made it to the village and was invited into a home of a local. This is Verbal irony because his son didn't really mean it when he said "great place you have here".
Lucky is tucked into bed and is fast asleep un aware that there is a monster coming into his room!
Oh no! The monster is coming closer to Lucky!! This is dramatic irony because only us (the audience/readers) know that the monster is approaching closer to the sleeping boy. When also the child isn't even aware that the monster is even in his room.
