Hey, I'm back! How've you been? My vacation was good. I had a great time, and a sunburn!
Thanks for your patience. The comment embargo is lifted! Thanks again for using my Amazon Affiliate links (US, UK, Canada).
You didn't call, no email, not even updating FaceBook! I was worried sick!
And you didn't even say where you were.

And what were we supposed to do with our hilarious and yet sage comments in your absence?
Come on! Answer! Don't just sit there looking smugly tanned and well-rested while the rest of us have seen our golden words - words which will NEVER come back - wasted due to your selfish indolence!
I've got a good mind to - oh, hang on! - no - no I haven't got a 'good' mind. I scarcely have a mind at all.
Anyway - how can I stay mad at you? You li'l baldy bearded cartoonist, you!
Some of the comics you posted while you were gone had a 2012 copyright! I wanted to tell you about it, but the comments were disabled! It was exactly like needing to scream but not having a mouth.
Welcome back. I hope your sunburn clears up soon!
My life is starting to mirror Ricks. And I'm fine with it!...
My cunning plan of looking for a bald man with a beard had one teensy flaw, and I didn't check Twit-arr until after your drawing session was over, so I didn't get the chance to say hello and tell you I liked your comic. Hello. I--oh geez, it's so hard to be non-sarcastic on the Internet--I like your comic.
Oh no! I wish you'd sent a message on the Twit-arr, we could have met up. Next time! ~Missy
You came back an the date went backwards to 2012. Brain hurts.
Seriously, welcome back - I wanted to comment on the last cartoon that it was amazing, but this one will do too.
This strip legitimately made me feel better about being tragically desperately hopelessly alone... right up until I wrote this comment.
Settle down, fellow Commenters. Scott was merely "hiking the Appalachian Trail."
I'm glad it was a vacation. I wasn't sure how one gets "away from the internet" The possibilities were frightening...
I've had some awful sunburns and haven't been able to find anything funny about them yet. So are we going to be seeing a strip about sunburn?
Scott, you have no idea what events you set into motion on your vacation by leaving the Island. I don't have time to explain, but you have to go back, Scott! You have to go BAAAAAAAAACK!
Rick is so awesome.
"Her loss is her gain" -- priceless!
You have the best strip out there.
The view Rick espouses here is actually, completely, non-ironically my approach to dating. As a result, I have a lot less stress about it than most people I know and often end up giving advice to them to help them get over their own anxieties! In sum, I kind of believe Rick wins this one.
Welcome back, and hope the sunburn clears up soon.
Say, any plans to turn comments back on for those recent comics?
Actually, one good thing about a woman saying no is that she's not putting you through a long, dragged out process in which she keeps claiming she'll go out with you but is "busy" on every date you suggest. In college, I was dumb enough to put up with that for over six months (built-in idiot friend).
This is my life -- & my dating philosophy. I'm always heartened by your wisdom, man!
So did you get any on your trip?
Hey, this is supposed to be a comic. That's just three panels of irrefutable logic. Well, OK, "her loss is her gain" is laugh out loud funny...
How to tell people your on Vacation!
Could be a topic. Welcome back Scott.
This comic has an incredible amount of positivity!
Damn, Rick is on fire!
