Please tell me we'll also get an updated version of him in the Ming the Merciless robe.
I assume, then, if this progression goes on, from angry to angrier looking Rick, one day we shall see "Burst Aneurysm Rick".
OMG, it's Elvis Costello!
His arms are much more expressive now.
"I didnt get where I am by worrying about what Rick wants."
That is among my favorites of your quots
I AM COUNT SPOCKULA!
can't wait to see him ordering a mint julep in the 'southern gentleman' outfit.
Naw. Not diggin' the new look. Tell him to grow his hair back.
As long as we're fixing looks, you do realize that YOUR WIFE WEARS GLASSES, don't you?
You should never make changes to your world because a bunch of Dilberts think it's a good idea, but that's just me.
[...] you shouldn’t start with the latest strip, but when you get to it, well, let me just say that it’s [...]
Since the beginning of the strip Rick's hair has gone in the opposite direction of mine. I was wondering where that universal scale was being balanced, and now I know.
That is a spot-on rendition of Corey Feldman from Stand by Me. Huzzah!
Hey, I just noticed that your characters sometimes violate the boundaries. Interesting that I didn't see it until you did it FOUR TIMES IN ONE STRIP.
Momma always said if you kept making those faces it would freeze like that.
Agree. I understand the why you did it, but you should consider putting her glasses back on. I feel that the glasses she wears speaks to her personality, just like her hair and clothes. Edgy, vivacious (lively in temper or conduct).
I hope you made a representation of him in the same previous pose, that's my favorite one.
In panel 4, it looks like Rick hates you. I would assume this is becaues Rick hates you.
Ric: the man so cool that both sides of his shirt have buttons.
The comic is really funny, but rick goes from looking like an angry cute young guy to an angry old woman, much like my grandma. He totally should get his hair back. No offense Rick--I'm sure you're cute as hell in person whatever your hair length. Just sayin' :)
Once again scott gets me in trouble for making me laugh to hard in the university library. Cheers!
Rick looks...more respectable now. What, is he currently trying to find a job ?And what about you Scott? Time to lose the silly moustache and goatee? The little ring of hair around your mouth sort looks like a butthole. Sorry, don't want to offend you. I shouldn't have said that. My apologies, it looks great on you though.
James: Your butthole must be terrifying.
I prefer the old Rick, Could you ask him to change his look back...?
He did shave it once, remember?He looked like a grape...
face hair... better'n no hair
Great! Now Rick looks just like me. Except for the white hair, of course. Shut up.
Looking forward to New Look Rick meeting Scott From the Future. Will this affect the look of Moon-Emperor Rick (http://basicinstructions.net/?p=875)?
It's the Rick Moranis Rick!
Lawyer to comic panels: "Show me, on this template, where they touched you." Panel:"Everywhere! It was so horrible, I couldn't do anything!" Lawyer: "And how often does this occur?" Panel: "At least once a week, usually three or four." Lawyer: "It's okay. Don't cry." Sorry about that. I just saw the word violated and had to do it.
I always thought Rick looked a lot like Bill. The new look makes him appear as mentally unstable as Bill is when he forgets to take his meds!!!
wait... which one is Bill?
Mike G and I know eachother personally, and Bill is a mutual aquaintance who has not turned up in the strip as yet.
I agree with what CortJstr said. The sole thing that will help me mourn the loss of Rick's old angry template (Which is easily my favorite template in the entire comic, he looks genuinely angry on that one) is an updated version of him in the Ming the Merciless robe.
It's not Elvis Costello, silly...it's just Pat!
he looks more like Kirkenberry...and if that one is hanging in limbo for you, then you must not be into cereal comics.
The characters don't bother me so much, it's the word bubbles with their insidious hidden agenda that they're pushing.
so is it too soon to be chanting "kill bill, kill bill, kill bill" like a bunch of derranged quentin tarantino geeks?
Rick's arms look bigger. Has he been working out?
Still laughing after ten minutes.
Is that you, Rick?
