    Mom, Mom, Mom — you blew it!

    Way to GO, Nancy-Unit. “Business is Business”, eh? What a way to BOOST your son’s flagging morale. Lets just HOPE that Frank doesn’t LOSE His job! But not to worry, Brad. I seemed to recall a certain lovely blonde firefighter who once offered to let you stay with Her. NOW would be a REALLY good time to take her up on THAT offer.

    If you have a PRO account and want your daily My Comic Page choices presented like they were before you went PRO, use my recipe (look for “recipe”), after logging into your PRO account.
    Don’t thank me. I already know it works, provided GoComics doesn’t change its folder locations.
    I’m only going to blanket post this once (the recipe will remain provided GoComics doesn’t delete it), but others may go PRO having not seen this. So if you read someone complaining that going PRO made things more difficult and the recipe helped you, please do me a favor and point that individual to it? Thank you.

    “Poor Brad is dead….” Well, not really, but so far down in the dumps that “up” is in China. And although Luann corrected herself quickly, Nancy seems more oblivious to her son’s woe. C’mon, Mom, offer some encouragement!

    Why do people talk about the characters in this comic like they’re real people?

    Perhaps they can relate to similar circumstances in their own lives.

    Actually, I like the fact that Evans is having one of characters now having to cope with something that has affected many. How Brad copes with this could be inspirational to some.

    Sue — Some of us have read Luann for 25 years — longer than we’ve known many of the real people in our lives. We’ve watched Brad and Luann grow……um….OK, not UP, but three years older. :)

    For at least a few minutes every day, we look in on them, and their family and friends, and we care what happens.
    Nothing wrong with that — maybe you feel that way about some soap opera characters.

    Sue 1… the fact that some react to these characters as if they are real people is a sign that Greg Evans knew what he is/was doing when he created the cartoon. I like the fact that he is placing a challenge here in this story… I don’t like the fact that Brad has lost his job but he seems to have a level head about himself now and hopefully will keep that composure…

    And sorry that Greg doesn’t portray some people’s desired fantasy world, but it’s ridiculous (and rude!) to call it a lack of creative ability.
    It takes talent to bring reality to a comic strip in ways that make people sympathise.
    Those who don’t want to see it can always flee to safety in Garfield or Ziggy,

    This is not the first time this strip has delved into “real life.”

    And he should get some severance benefits. He’s in a union, right?

    I actually like this, as long as some kind of deux es machina isn’t used to solve the problem. Dirk’s return also started well, but he inexplicably became a quasi-hero and then departed the scene exactly (you know where Evans got his inspiration for that from) like the Lone Ranger. If Brad isn’t somehow rescued by some knight/lady in shining armour, we might have the only tolerable storyline since the Great Big Washington Trip Snorefest three years ago. Certainly, it makes an excellent change from Luann, the Feather, their so-called music, and Toni’s continual carping about her brother’s shortcomings. Well, that’s my troll-point view.

    Because once in a long while some of them do, briefly, act like real people. Sadly, such moments are few and far between, but they do exist, unlike in, say, Mary Worth(less).

    Do they let you keep your uniform if you’re sacked from the fire department?
