Last panel was brilliant. Couldn't help laughing out loud (at 11:30PM).
Rick's dad is FDR?
And yet Rick is getting calmer and calmer frame by frame. It turns out you are a friend after all, Scott.
So we found that Rick is even more awesome than anything in The Avengers. Not that that was a very high bar to clear.
Rick is channelling Arthur from The Tick, it would seem, whose super powers were a flying suit and abject terror of almost everything.
Um, we all do LIVE in fear, that's what motivates us collectively as a species. The trouble is we really have no idea how to channel, control or is that fear. We THINK we do, but we really haven't a clue which makes us the second most dangerous beings around. Of course the MOST dangerous being has no fear whatsoever.Have a nice day !
Your comics are usually great, but this one is simply awesome! I was rolling by panel 2.
Frank Herbert had some thoughts on fear. They went something like this..."I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I must face my fear. I will allow it to pass over me and through me and when it is gone, only I shall remain." - the litany against fear from Dune
Germans do not know the meaning of fear.
They think it's one fewer than fünf.
Love the reference in the last panel.
Four f's - fear, flight, fighting , and fornicating. A remnant in the limbic system of our reptilian past. Rick ain't no T-rex, so what is he?
Always looking forward to the good old MWF trifecta, and this was even better with a possible TMBG reference!
What happened to Scott between panels 2 and 4? He looks fairly trim and buff in panel 2, but quickly turns flabby in panel 4? Perhaps a week elapsed between panels and during that time all Scott ate was raw cookie dough for every meal.
I enjoyed this one.
Missed a chance for silent scream of terror Scott.
I think I am a super smeller, but not in that sense. :(
Nevetsrulz, he turned more toward profile, always a bad move when you're sporting a belly.This is an old posing technique;(I don't know if Mae West invented it, but she sure used it) three-quarter stance with a little forward turn of the shoulders makes you look slimmer than you actually are.
I never trust a cliche, but the only result on Google Maps for "Fear" is a martial arts school in Birmingham, which doesn't seem to have residential students, so it does seem that you can't live in Fear. Cape Fear, on the other hand,...
