    Gotta say, this sure wasn’t what I expected today. But that’s one of the awesome things about this strip; Aaron’s ability to touch into the emotion of the characters and head into a direction that isn’t anticipated. I’m not going to try to guess where this is leading right now; I’m simply going to wait for tomorrow’s awesome installment!

    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
    And on the pedestal these words appear –

    “The Endtown mini-comic that I produced for Comicpalooza 2011 is now available to YOU for the offensively low price of $2.50 (price includes s&h, international add $1 for each copy ordered ). Besides sporting a snazzy full color cover (http://tinyurl.com/3uytdhy), it contains an all-new 22 page story that is available nowhere else. And just because I feel like doing it, I’ll sign and personalize (if desired) each and every copy I mail out. Simply pay via PayPal using my email address, aaronneathery@gmail.com, and be sure to include your mailing address. If you can’t pay with PayPal, email me for my snailmail.
    And, just so you know, I’m completely open to donations. The mouse that lives in my head will thank you. :-)”

    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

    Thanks, Bronkster.. I wasn’t expecting it either, believe it or not. To paraphrase Vonnegut, I’m very frequently attached to these characters with “stale rubberbands”..

    Look upon Aaron’s works, and despair.

    @Aaron
    It’s much more fun for the writer (dare I say ‘addictive’) when the characters and story get to take on a life of their own, and begin to surprise even you. Like the occasional great golf shot, that’s what will keep you coming back!

    Last panel looks like a scene from a ‘Mike Hammer’ story.

    I’m kinda hopin’ that the lion dude provides a worthy beat-down (after he wakes up, that is).

    I bet he will start sobbing about his rotten childhood…
    I always wonder why that is supposed to excuse their behavior.

    Doesn’t the expression, “That was then, this is now.” cover it?

    Lots of kids had rotten childhoods, only some of them act out.
    By its very nature, childhood is all, “I want it…I want it!”
    Parenthood is saying, “No!” and explaining why the kid can’t have it. By the time you’re an adult, you should have your OWN internal voice saying “No!”, and you have learned enough to listen to it.

    Cliff knew he was wrong, deep inside. He chose not to listen to it.

    Call the cops, Holly. Cliff needs a “life-changing correction” from an authority figure.

    Great job, Aaron!

    KUTGW,

    Arron? You have my deepest, sincere admiration. You dint go the easy way in creating this situation, instead you created a moving, thoughtful and touching one.
    Your writting, your art, is superb.

    The third panel is a masterpiece. I’ve never seen expressions tell so much.
