edit! Sorry for the double submission. I had to fix something and it was easier to delete it and re-upload a smaller file than wait 10 years for dA to upload the 'changed' file.


I've been working on this for like, 40 years, I swear. I think it was funny at some point, but now I'm not sure... I don't even know what I'm looking at anymore.

NONE of this after he stabs himself was scripted. And there was supposed to be like, one more panel at the end too. After he says "Jokes... shouldn't last this long..." he was gonna' just scream, "DO YOU HEAR ME SETH MACFARLANE?!"

He's loosing a lot of blood, and with it, his sanity. XD

Anyway.... I think this is significantly more sloppy than the other pages so far. :/ It's starting to have some of that patented real-faker half-assed sloppiness to it, but whatever. Hopefully you'll get the idea.

oh and speaking of getting the idea, I'm not sure how many of you actually picked up on the background joke on the previous page (and that's my fault for not making it super obvious), but it's kind of the punchline of that page. And it makes this page more coherent. Soooo... yeah. Kudos to those who picked up on it!
Maybe I'm just crazy and everyone really did catch it, and if that's the case SLAP ME AROUND A BIT and tell me I need to have more faith in you guys. XD

I really like how you ended it in this strip; I'm glad you didn't include the Seth MacFarlane joke (even though it's hilarious). Giving it this kind of finality makes the dark humor just that much more poignant, because after laughing like a maniac, for just a second, it's like "o-oh. oh. this kid is dead. shit."

that kind of sharp stabbing realization is important!

Umm... I don't know if I missed something, or if you're going to cover it in your story later, but why did he HAVE to kill himself? I know it's kind of the premise of how he got his job and everything, so I understand you putting it in there as a writer. I'm just not sure why the character did it and am little confused.

Great line work and coloring. The piece is absolutely stunning and I adore the character. I picked up on your animation and found your page.

He doesn't necessarily have to, that's just the best conclusion he can come to, and he sees it as the only way out. His other options are turn himself in, or run away (to where?) and get caught eventually anyway, etc etc. Suicide was an "immediate" solution, although not necessarily any more well thought-out. Sock doesn't quite grasp the gravity of it all. Hope that makes sense!
