Scott I have been amused by your comics for some time now, working my way backwards through the archives. Today, and I think this has to do with the site redesign, some change to the nav? i skipped back to this first strip and finally the logo header image thing makes perfect beautiful sense.
Is this actually the first comic you ever drew?
Hope you're not gonna burn out too soon!
I just got your book from Amazon.co.uk - kept me up 'till 3:30am. On page 17, 18, and 80 I had to stop because I was laughing so loud I thought I'd wake my whole family - even though I was hundreds of miles away in a St Louis hotel.

What?!? IKEA has your book? Is it made out of sustainable forestry materials? How about the 2x4? :D
I just read every single BI. It helped me forget I had H1N1. Thanks Scott!
THE END! I'VE MADE IT.
NOW MY HORRIBLY BORING LIFE OF READING WEBCOMICS CAN CONTINUE!
@ Darla Dixon-They sell it, but you have to put it together yourself. I ended up with a few screws left over wondering where I missed a step and if it was going to collapse if I read it too hard.
awww was that all? I demand moar!
No! I've been reading backwards too and it's over. Too soon, too soon. How am I supposed to get through my day at work now? it's only 10:25...
We need a BI showing us how to make it through a day at work after we have no more BI to read...
And to be continued?
For the past few days I have been going through all the comics backwards starting from the newest one since I discovered it from..err...where...can't remember, and now I'm sad it's over.
*waits patiently for a new strip*
Same here, I read every comics, enjoyed most of them, thanks for making these last weeks of work lot less boring.
wow what a great bunch of comics. its always sad when you reach the "end" of something this good, but it was fun while it lasted and i would like to personally say thank you Scott Meyer and all others associated with this great comic. i suffer from depression, and i cant even remember the last time ive laughed this hard. i honestly don't think i can thank you guys enough.keep up the good work :)
I am...finished...worked my way all the way back through. Lots of enjoyable comics, but not nearly enough to please me. Now, Cyanide and Happiness on the other hand.... =)
Why do I feel like the only one who read these comic from bottom to top?
Heh. Like all the other comments here, I worked my way backward as soon as I discovered the "previous instructions" button, over the last two days, and I wanted to say... awesome. :) I hope it's not insulting if I say this is officially my second-favorite webcomic. ^--^
Also, "Repeat as need" is the icing on the comic. It made me crack up.
Too good! the very 1st comic!
now you have +1 button and got my +1
Going by the comments above, a "How to read a comic strip from the start" would appear to be required. ;-)
Another "backwards reader" here. Having reached the Big Bang of Basic Instructions, I will now return to to future and await further issues.
It can't just be me who thinks that the murderer guy looks a bit like Darren Criss...
Hahaha! Just started reading these after seeing one on Cracked.
Well, I'm going to do something crazy and go through the archives from this end.
Hey, Drazil! In which Cracked article have you seen a BI?
Tell me the title and not the link, because if I'm not wrong, links are deleted from the comments session...
Note from Scott: I'm late to this, and haven't seen the comment to which this post refers, but for the record, Cracked ran Basic Instructions regularly for quite some time. They were quite good to me, and we parted on good terms.
Thanks for the great comic!
Wow! That's Awesome, Scott! I've just used Google search inside Cracked for "Basic Instructions" and found it! I didn't know that! Cracked is another awesome comical website and it's really nice to know that you have good relations with them!
Keep the good work!
Heh, I can't remember anymore and didn't think to check back (till now, I guess?) I had hit a "random" button on their free app.
Still haven't made it through all of the archives.... Lots of good stuff, I've had to share many of them.
