I really should come up with a tag for ”I don’t get it, not even a little bit, but I was still amused”

… but wouldn’t you cut down on wind resistance by keeping her ears tucked into the helmet?

Last Month Called…

furlough.jpg

Not the first time we’ve discussed this sort of thing: could the writer of the strip possibly have been unaware of how outdated a “furlough” reference would be by November 17?

Also: huh???

Is there something specific about this item, or is this just “after a week of mocking beauty care products, she bought the craziest thing Jan Eliot could think of”?

:(

Nicole: I know that C&H push the envelope all the time, it is one of the things I like about the comic. However I am a little a loss of what to say about this comic. It certainly doesn’t fit any of your typical categories … lol, ewww, Arlo.. But I find this strip particularly disturbing, The story they have told in five panels is horrific, the bulk of which is filled in by our minds when we see the last panel. But, regardless of how disturbed it makes me feel, I find myself looking at it over and over. As I am writing this, I realize that this is a strip that qualifies as art. Without a doubt it makes a strong statement and evokes emotion in a way that most comics to do not.

I am curious if other people are made as uncomfortable by this strip, what others think about it. Do they think I am making much ado about nothing?

I didn’t get his name (it was insanely noisy), but I was chatting with Tall C&H Writer at the NYCC last year (while we were both waiting in line to see Zach Weiner, as it happens) and he told me that Depressing Comic Week is more or less a competition to come up with the most disturbing scenarios: humor, cleverness, entertainment value… all irrelevant.

He seemed genuinely puzzled that they still receive angry e-mail over these strips. -Bill
