The art on this strip appears to be drawn by Mason Mastroianni, who is Johnny Hart’s grandson. Does anyone know what happened to Jeff Parker, the man who was doing it until December? I have to admit I like his art better, though I’m sure in time I’ll forget to notice the differences.
The comments on here about Brooke, 9 Chickweed Lane and Pibgorn came about because of a comment (which has since been deleted) which asked about them.
As someone who is a long-time follower (20 years or so) of Brooke’s work, and who was a frequent commenter at GoComics when he allowed comments, I can say that we had a wonderful group of commenters for several years. There were occasional posts with nasty comments, but not many, certainly there were no more trollings than there were spams, at least for the first few years. Unfortunately, there was another group outside the realm of GoComics which decided in 2010 that Brooke, his comics, and his followers should all be trolled, which they proceeded to do with the most extreme nastiness any of us had ever seen.
As his fans, those of us who enjoyed the comics along with the comments even went so far as to enlist computer programming experts to track down the offending parties and work with Uclick’s people to ban them, but it was an impossible task. It saddened us greatly when Brooke had them delete the comments, and the suddenness of it shocked us, but we moved on. I am glad that GoComics was able to reach a compromise that kept the strips here.
Regarding the name of the group, we called ourselves the Comfortable Couch of Confusion because the Pibgorn storylines were often very hard to follow, so we’d “pick a cushion” and talk about what was going on in the comic, which eventually led to discussing other things. It wasn’t considered bad form at the time to discuss other subjects, as similar groups happened on other strips.

The creature I remember eating Stretch Armstrong’s frozen mice is Ms. Goatsucker, after her capture when she spent the first night with our heroes in a previous story. Even for Goatsucker’s nourishment, I wouldn’t wish to see Isabelle die just now.
I love these characters already, and their story. I can hardly wait for each day’s new edition.
Thank you, Kory, for your beautiful work!
Thanks for the poetry, Kory! Love the different style and coloring. Good to see your work again!

@sukiec, I’m sorry for your sake to hear of your possible upcoming surgery, but if your new doctor decides to do it, I sincerely hope that it works well. As a glaucoma patient myself, I know that’s a very narrow range of IOP to reach, because that’s where my ophthalmologist is trying to keep my right eye. It can be done, although I’m still using two different drops even after surgery with a shunt installed. Still, as long as it preserves my eyesight, I’m not complaining.
There are more extensive surgeries that I will probably need in future, along with cataract surgery, but that’s life. If you need to vent anytime about it, I’ll be glad to chat with you by email. Just let me know, and we’ll figure it out. Please keep us posted on what happens. (((((HUGS!)))))
I can hardly wait to see what’s going to happen next, and find out what’s happened to Biff. I hope that this blob is not him. This has been an absolutely wonderful story and I will hate to see it end, but I really want to know how it ends. Does that make sense to anyone else?
She’s not a bad person? Please! What more does it take to be a bad person than helping and harboring the monster that she and they have been hunting for months and even years? That’s certainly not the behavior of a good person.
Killing Dr. Periwether may be the only way to vanquish Flimm. Her mind is so far gone that I don’t think there’s much hope for saving her anyway. Maybe her death will allow the Mushpits to return with Biff, and they can place Elijah as his little brother. If they can change people’s memories to make them think a child who has been missing for years has never been gone, they should be able to add in another child when they reform Biff’s parents’ memories.
Perhaps it’s Heckbender? It could have gotten a name for him from Goatsucker which was slightly incorrect. Or might it be one of the denizens of Slynderfell’s?
