060 – It’s Been Nice

I’ve gotta admit… I drew it before I wrote it. Yep. I just quickly drew in some word balloons and hoped and prayed that I would be able to fill them with something later.

It’s what happens when you draw something the day it’s supposed to go live. I think it works though. It’s kinda funny and a satisfying (if totally predictable) end to a nice little story arc.

    What a perfect way to end this storyline!

  2. Mike says:

    Now we see the violence inherent in the system!

  3. Dammit, Matt. First you get me all fanboy about the Crab. Now I like the seagull all over again. Yup. This seagull knows what’s what. Silly fish. Not gonna dwell on the symbolism here, lest I be lynched…

    When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Um… wait one hour after you eat before swimming?

  7. drewbie says:

    I was hoping for a sound effect of Larry biting into the swim bladder :(

  8. PJ Grogan says:

    I did not see that coming….well played

  9. Tim says:

    Keep at it! Your characters are really starting to develop, and I can’t wait for more!

  10. Chris says:

    Ah fish was a short lived character, but I’m glad to see he’s not going to waste.

  11. Nixon says:

    at least it seems to me the fish died by itself rather than being eaten alive by Larry..
    thats fair enuff…too bad he lost his lil firend, i liked the floppy fish *sniff
    gotta love the speech in panel 3 …wise words from larry there :D

  12. russ says:

    Sad to see the little guy go. . . Oh well, plenty of fish in the sea, as they say. . .

    Also- how did he say all that with a fish in his mouth?

  13. Mike M says:

    Mmmm . . . Sushi . . .

  14. Chad says:

    Never let a good swim bladder go unpopped, I always say.

  15. Matt says:

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments everyone! I apologize for not commenting back at all, I promise I wasn’t ignoring you! I’ve just been very busy.

  18. mendel says:
