    Red Rascal is now part of the 1%.

    So, he had a bank account in high school?

    His parents were trying to teach him responsibility- it didn’t work out.

    Not bad. That college internship was a great career head start.

    I don’t understand how that Trudeau guy makes so much money. All he does is draw cartoons all day. That can’t be real work. And that girl he married is too good for him. If not for the evidence that it’s not a delusion, I’d say he’s delusional. He doesn’t deserve all that, and I’m looking forward to his downfall.

    @leftwingpatriot

    He did learn a lesson.

    Becca’s body language indicates that Jeff fascinates her (or at least intrigues and interests her) – why???

    Maybe he will deposit it with a broker – and learn a new lesson.

    Hi, commenters. A couple of weeks ago I requested GoComics to check on our friend, DylanThomasPI, (they have his email address.) They sent a message to him to check in, but there has been no response. It’s been about 6 weeks since he posted, so can only assume something bad has happened. Like losing an old friend.

    No. DylanThomas3.145962 was a true gentleman. He would not have simply abandoned those who enjoyed his company here. Had he grown tired of this, he would have said a proper farewell to those who considered him a friend. That is what good people do. This sudden silence does seem to indicate something untoward may have overtaken him. I hope all will be better and we will see him in the future.

    @mythreesons

    Thanks for asking gocomics to check. I am hoping against my fears. I know he has health issues and is almost 72 years-old. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    1. He’s an artist, and a damned good one. If you don’t think so, try drawing a single panel for a comic strip, much less a coherent set of four.
    ,
    2. He’s a good writer and storyteller: he knows dialog, character development, and dramatic pacing cold.
    .
    3. He can do all of that consistently, every day, for decades. That is a rare combination of gifts.
    .
    4. By what first-hand knowledge do you know that he makes “so much money”, or “that girl he married is too good for him”? Or that he’s delusional (and about what, exactly)? Or that “he doesn’t deserve all that”? Absent any other evidence, I’d say the delusion is strictly on your side of the keyboard…as well as the small-minded, mean-spirited jealousy toward someone who can do something that you can only snark at.
    .
    If you don’t like what GT does artistically, or his personal and political point of view, that’s your prerogative — just as it’s your prerogative not to read this strip at all. But this kind of pointless and self-disgracing slam puts you on the edge of troll territory.

    Nice post.
    I would say he(?)’s already in full troll territory.

    Shouldn’t today’s strip have run before last week’s, not after?
    .
    I, also, hope DTPi is all right and will return soon.
