Look behind you kiddo, your ‘comrades’ are running with their tails between their legs.
Kill your darlings, indeed – ouch, AN!
Well, they might take ONE prisoner.
Methinks he’s ‘putsched’ it a little too far. He’s going down alone in his martyrdom to his folly.
I hope Lucas takes one right between the eyes. Justice for the murder of poor Fenrick. Justice would be front page material.
Goodbye, Comrade Lucas. You will be remembered as a hero! For about 5 seconds, after which you will be remembered as that swiss guy with the camera. Because you’ll be full of holes…
“We? What, ya got a mouse in yer pocket?”
They sure seem to have some seriously stout streetlights in this town. Now, an old wolf is much less of a load than a portly panda; but still, they seem to be designed to be multi-functional… ;-)
“You have 30 seconds to clear the area!”, and not “Halt! You are under arrest for lynching that citizen!” Interesting. I wonder how Dottie is feeling these days.
I hope the rats get the camera intact. There may be pictures of the guilty in it.
Pack animals packing up and packing out.
The Lone Ranger: Well, Tonto, it looks like we’re surrounded by Indians. Tonto: What do you mean, “we,” paleface?
I say we kill him!
I say we hang him, then we kill him!
I say we stomp him! Yeah! Then we tattoo him! Yeah! Then we hang him…! YEAH!‘! And then we kill him! YEAH!’!’!
….I say we let him go.
Why bother with the warning? The trouble is all in one place so you can shoot it.
Sad. But on the bright side…….Honor his wish……make him the first martyr!
Someone complained the other day about the lack of “comic relief”: Methinks this is about as close as we’re gonna get! (the wolves running away and the rats ’ rather strange warning to flee from an obvious crime scene)
And Nothing Of Value Is Lost…
I’ve been watching this strip for some time now, and know better than to expect things to be “hunky-dory.” I guess Aaron likes stories where things are generally spiraling out of control!
That is what makes a storytellers work interesting. For me, it’s just if we Like a character and he gets killed off or worse, never heard from again..
I have no sympathy for a goddamn lynch mob. Especially one led by idiots and hypocrites.
We’re right behind you, boss! As much behind you as possible!
Security is a hot Rat tonight.
I find myself wondering how Dottie is going to take the news, especially now that she’s going to need a new “Assistant” Editor…
“Up yours, you pig-loving Fascists! We’re willing to die as martyrs!! Our comrades will avenge us!!! Right, guys?? Ahhhh…guys? Guys???? HEY GUYS!!!”
So now Fenwick has been lynched. What safe place did Walt stash Heather Hoss in, then?
Poor guy … he was an ass to Walt at the end, but I do hope those wolves get shot down now. They are honestly really really dumb the way they act.
Coming soon: Death of a douchebag.
Actually, I found the first panel to be heart wrenching and very evocative. I feel rather ill each time I see it. Well done, Mr. Neathery.
Lucas suffers from youth and a total lack of empathy. Sadly he may pay for it with his life.
The rats may just “exterminate” Dottie’s biggest problem… Now that might bring us a step closer to that elusive “Greater Good” ;-)
