Of Love and Hate

It's all the same. Ever wonder why you want to rip your boyfriend's throat out or beat the living crap out of your little brother? It's because you love them.

Speaking of ripping someone's throat out, These assholes really needed a swift kick to the shins with a good pair of Doc Martins. It's also the birth of what Dave and I envision to be emblazoned on a t-shirt one day: "It has to hurt for learning to occur."

Here is one of the other front-runners for Strip of the Year. It's a two-parter, the first part being found here. This amazing strip was written and drawn by the creator of Everwas, MadCat. Her delightful take on both Squishy and Direman had a gritty yet dreamlike Noir sensibility. The panel with Dave in funeral attire, brandishing two pistols against a fiery backdrop: priceless.

I find that when Dave and I collaborate on a strip we oftentimes do our funniest work. We seriously need to invest in that office space we always talk about, Dave.

I love this strip because it is so close to how Dee is in real life. He's a tricksy hobbit, he is, my love.

That's it for now. See you on Monday for more of my favorite strips from 2010.
