Great job (especially after all the reruns). Laughed at every panel.
I love how dramatic it looks! :D
I will begin my comic insulting Rick shortly.
So how much money does this scholarship offer?
I will definatley apply for that scholarship. Rick: Prepare to be eviscerated in fiction!
The smoking jacket returns, and this time with a cravat! How much snazzier can Scott dress?!?
So, if you're inexplicably killed everone who has drawn a comic insulting Rick will be a suspect? Man that's gona be an `interesting' investigation.
Always nice to see the smoking jacket make a return.
Love it that you're wearing the smoking jacket for this one-- incredibly classy!
The fisrt panel is amazing, fantastic punchline! The setting is very similar to the one about how to market windows vista when Deepak Chopra appears, that gives the comic the perfect tone.
Smoking jacket, cravat, book-lined shelves, high-backed leather (arm?)chair - gotta love the production values on this one.
Great atmosphere. Can we see more of this will please?
Panel three nearly caused a coffee + keyboard incident.
Hahahaha, man....that was funny. I know it doesn't seem like I'm laughing because I have to type out my laughter instead of 'voicing' it, but yeah, that made me laugh. And maybe it just made me laugh because I'm drunk off my ass right now, but I don't think so. I think it was genuinely seriously funny. Either way, we'll see in the morning. Your stuff is awesome, and I subscribe to it, and I wish my website was working right now 'cause then I could get some traffic heading there merely by posting this comment on your site. Screw it, I should probably go to sleep right now, but know this...I respect your brain.
I'm reaally going to regret this tomorrow morning, but oh well. You only live once! That's why we have wills in the first place. K, I need to sleep.
This was a particularly good one! I proper lol'd at the first panel.
I hope this isn't a subtle Comic Strip Will for real :(
Oh wow background!
The production costs for this strip must have been immense.
*slaps head*I will read the comments before postingI will read the comments before postingI will read the comments before posting
As long as it's a long-term precaution, what's wrong with a comic strip will?
> I will definatley apply for that scholarshipRay, any will do. But please apply.
ummm, I am surprised the grammar nazis haven't struck yet - remaining 10% will remain?
Great comic, loved it.
Best comic in some time, The drawings look especially good...I can't stop laughing...you are amazing scott!
Better than the "boot to the head" guy.
Man that was hilarious. I personally really liked the scholarship, even though I do like the character Rick. I hope you left more than 10% of your comics to your wife
It was very funny indeed. Good job!
Do you mean 90% of your art was meant to insult Rick? Is he still your friend now? And what about your boss, won't he see this comic and be offended ?
don't forget to bequeath to all your readers your mobile phone number, for the occasion of your funeral
"Do you mean 90% of your art was meant to insult Rick? Is he still your friend now? And what about your boss, won’t he see this comic and be offended ?"
I'm pretty sure that Scott's boss either
a) has a sense of humorb) does not know that this comic existsor c) is a former boss because Scott was fired long ago for this comic.
As for Rick, I would be honored if a friend of mine put this much love and devotion into repeatedly insulting me in front of the whole world.
@ Edgar Cayce: No, that's correct. It means the his artwork will be with his wife when he dies, and Rick gets the everything that insulted him. The remaining ten percent will remain with his wife.
I don't actally know Rick, but how hard can it be to insult someone who can so unwittingly look just like Pat on SNL?
I like it, thanks Scott!
ha! Much like Scott my friend list and enemy list is nearly the same.
"Either way, I am not happy."
I wish we could see the look on when Rick when he is viewing the will, dressed in his finest Col. Salnders suit sipping a mint julip. But wait- that would mean that Scott had......no I don't wish for that. Keep the funnies coming. There's nothing better out there. How about a short animation project to air on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network? But that would mean alot more work...... ahh, forget it. Just keep on with the voodoo that you do, so well.
Gold again. Thanks Scott, you're consistently making my day.
Don't forget that what you don't like in Rick is merely a reflection of your own perceived inner weaknesses. His sensitivity, that you mistake for lack of manliness, his... no, wait. I am wrong. He really lacks manliness. Go to town on him, man, go to town...
Did I miss one through the archives? What's this about Deepak Chopra?
P.S. Search function doesn't seem to do anything on my Firefox.
Actually, I checked and only about 50 % of your comics seem to directly insult Rick. That means that either 1) this comic is inaccurate, 2) most of your comics contain subtle Rick insults that only an insider would pick up on, or 3) you have a ginormous stash of secret comics that insult Rick. I choose to belive #3.
poor Rick... lol
"Either way, I am not happy." Lmao.
