I'm not quite sure what me getting kicked in the backside is a metaphor for, but I think you'll agree it is pretty profound nonetheless.

Thank you! It was a deeply personal voyage of discovery. With slapstick.

You can tell that I am a real artist because I shouted that even as I was being kicked up the behind.

We all dream of making the comic that makes children cry and vomit. This is All Our Lives.

And it's lovely! Really nice style/colour.

Thank you! I figure if I only use one colour on a comic there is less chance of me making it hideous!

Re: SOLID GOLD!!!

But I didn't make you cry or vomit? I have failed as an artist.

The lesson is: always keep a rolling pin handy when you are trying to write a comic.

It is no surprise that the personification of a comic is as a bug-eyed sadist. A bit like children.

This was super deep.
My favorite part was you scanning the carcass!

That's only because you didn't have to wipe it down afterwards.

If a comic kicked me in the butt, it'd get much more than a roller pin! D:

If you made a webcomic that featured nothing but the mangled corpses of comic ideas, you would be taking all of my money as I buy the trade paperbacks, the movie tie-ins and the Xbox game that come from the success of it.

Is that what you want? To take all my money?

Hahahahahaha! Rolling pins, like frying pans+violence=humour galore. But-- wait!! So this is your highly elaborate excuse for not doing ANY WORK AT ALL for the last four months, eh sonny?

I am not fooled! I drove past your house and saw all the balloons and party streamers. You have been living it up every night eating cake, playing video games and not drawing. Haven't you?
