Aw, so sweet.
are you suspecting Lio decapitated his own mother?!
He ought to keep his mom in a vase, like I do.
I wonder if we’ll ever get a story about his mom.
@Invisibleshame on you! Lio probably bought it when the Halloween stuff was marked 70% off. Very sweet strip.
Mom deserves a bigger tombstone. I love little Ishy in the last panel.
This really shows how much little kiddoes feel when they lose a mom (or dad)…Lio always remembers his mom. Little Squiddy wins the empathy award….aaaahhhhh.
Awww [sniff]. How does this strip managed to be cute and creepy at exactly the same time?
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
:( I don’t have a squid to take when I visit my mom
Ishy was mentioned in Sherman’s Lagoon today.
@Dogsniff: At least it isn’t a mom and pop place yet.good one.
@ Plods with Beer ditto
cool, cool, cool
This made me tear up. How sweet.
Always wondered where his mom was.
Now I have to call my Mom and tell her that a comic strip about a boy and his squid made me miss her.
Agreed, how doe Mark do that?
Awesome strip today. Love the last panel.
Aww poor Lio. A life long friendship cemented by a tentacle.
instant classic — thank you MT
That’s Lio’s mother’s grave. So far this has been a mystery for sometime. How did she died?
It’s amazing. Every time Mom shows up in this strip, someone starts peeling onions nearby.
I don’t think @invisible meant it maliciously. He/she was just following a line of thought
Our friends and family are always in our hearts and minds. Graves are just places that contain empty shells.
Was wondering if he had a mother or not.
No pun. Just tears.
That’s why I love this strip, it can be sweet and funny with a little creepy on the side, all at once. It’s very rare to find true talent in this world, keep it up Mr. Tatulli.
i still have my mom, but i lose a little more of her every day.
Lovely. Thanks, Mark.
very astute, olive oyle. You are so right.
allergic to squid???
