How to Have A Horrifying Conversation

As you may have surmised, I've been pretty busy with this "new web page" thing. I ended up having to re post all of my comics, which was time consuming, but well worth it. Rather than run a repeat, I am posting this comic, which I actually made over a year ago, but never posted because it disturbed me terribly at the time. Everything Mullet-Boss says in the first 2.5 panels is a direct quote from a conversation I'd  had with a co-worker that day.

For smacking your kid to be good for them, it has to be "discipline" and not "random whacks whenever your dad/mum loses their temper". In other words, the parent must be consistent with the reasons for and extent of their punishment, creating certainty in the young mind instead of making them constantly afraid. Constant fear fucks you up.

I can see why this comic disturbed you - you were obviously channeling the DOJ "Torture Memos" a year before they were released. I find the political subtext to be just disturbing enough to keep the mind focused on the fact that there are bad guys out there.
Keep up the good work.

I love your reaction in the first panel.

"My dad never beat me..."

-.-

"But..."

O.o

If you were ever looking to START a horrifying conversation, you definitely went the right direction, for some reason Dads are a sensitive topic

Scott's reaction in the first panel is pretty much the only appropriate, or, indeed, possible reaction to that sentence I can think of. Or, for you Grammar Nazis, of which I can think.

That first panel is a perfect "DO NOT WANT" face.

"So am I the only one that thinks being disciplined as a child made me a better man today?"

No, but no one thinks you're much of a man anyways.

Your leaning-back pose in panel 1 is priceless.

I father oft expressed how much he cared for me, by threatening to disassemble anyone who threatened me.
