Lasting trauma is the BEST trauma! =)
that opening line is pretty good, but doesn't begin to touch "children are a cowardly superstitious lot."
If I could actually find any Mr. Pibb in the stores around here, I would hoard it all for myself. It is the last thing I would give to trick-or-treaters.
I stumbled upon your comic and started reading through your archives from the first comic. Gotta say, I've stumbled upon dozens and dozens of online comic strips, but yours is the first one that has been genuinely entertaining, and the only one that has gotten me to laugh virtually every time. My hat is off to you. I love your style.
Keep up the good work.
I would like to point out that, in these comics, your pants are the same color as you skin. This creates the impression (especially in panel one of this comic) that you are not, in fact, wearing any pants. I do not think you should change this, but I did think you should know.
There's only one problem with this: You can never be too old to go trick-or-treating!
And no, there is no such thing as enough Mr. Pibb.
My family usually scares anyone too old to be trick or treating, and encourages little kids to come up
...I swear, one year, the older ones are going to take the little ones hostage so it is either let them both pass or scare the older one while traumatizing the little one
Anybody want to help permanently scar people when that day comes?
that sounds like fun, although i usually have to escort neighbor kids around so id probablly be on the reciveing end of the joke.
This one is good.
You're right. There IS no such thing as enough Mr. Pibb!
I think this is my favorite BI strip.
