How to Face Certain Death (rerun)

There it is, last of the Superhero comics. Can't believe I've done twenty of these crazy things.

Friday there will be a super-special guest strip, then Monday, we're back to normal. Thanks for your patience.

This has been a great run! Thanks, Scott. Glad your recovery went well. Looking forward to your new strips, especially any superhero ones.

We need a crossover. Rocket Hat versus Mecha Snake-Ape.

Thanks, Scott. That was a wonderful calvalcade of wonderful superhero wonderfulness.

The irony being of course, that the new comic on Monday is a Superhero comic

So, when do we see Knifeketeer vs. Moon Emperor?

July 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTim McCormack

Actually, there are more than twenty if you include the character death one (, and the one on maintaining a secret identity (El Destructo!).

What a fun run that was! Twenty! Thank you, Scott, for all your work to keep US entertained while YOU manage to squeeze in a tonsillectomy. Hope your mouth is much better, and I'm looking forward to the new strips starting Monday. ...although it will be a little bummer to go back to "only" three strips a week.

How about Mr Everywhere v. Knifeketeer? Or a super evil mashup of macramayhem and the moon emperor?

>>>>So, when do we see Knifeketeer vs. Moon Emperor?

Sounds like the old paradox of Stormtroopers vs Star Trek Red Shirts.

Yeah, cool superhero. It was funny for me, thanks

It was a lovely Superhero marathon! I will begin construction on my own Pummeltorium shortly.

Welcome back, Scott!

July 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

You had me at Pummeltorium.

My purpose in life is now clear: Build an Imperial Pummeltorium. Thank you, Scott, for giving my life meaning.

This arc was great, but this strip especially.

This strip was great, but panel three especially.

Panel three was great, but line five especially.

All right, I will stop now.

(But really: excellent, excellent work.)

I didn't see one of my favorite superhero-related comics in this batch. I don't have the link, but Rick is trying to come up with a name for a superhero who uses knives to fight crime. Scott suggests "How about the cold blooded murderer?" Or did I just miss it?

I've been a big fan for a while, and this last run just cements that! Thanks for making the effort during your convalescence. I will be in Orlando the 1st weekend of August for a family reunion (my brother-in-law is an imagineer for the mouse). I wish we could meet you, but that would be too creepy-stalkerish to arrange. I am looking forward to the new strips next week!

Note from Scott: Hey, If you're gonna be on Disney property any of those days drop me a line. I'll let you know if I'm working and where. Always happy to say hi.

Mr. Meyer,

have you thought about spinning the super hero ones off?

Future instruction: How to deal with a crazed fan while you're at your day job!

But seriously, do a lot of your coworkers at Disney know about BI?

Note from Scott: Most of them do not. Some are aware that I do something Comic-Strip related. Just recently one of my supervisors referred to me as an "author, of sorts."

I don't keep it secret or anything, but I also don't talk about it that much. Don't want to sound like I'm bragging. I'm just tremendously proud of Basic Instructions, and that comes out when I talk about it.

Super special guest? Scott Adams is the guest artist?
