I’m generally not this obsessive about keeping my comic books (of which I have a pretty big collection) in pristine condition. However, I do keep them safe from sunlight, dust, oxygen and body oils as a rule. Okay, I have worn gloves before, but never a mask.
Having dated a few (and having married one) of those “comic book guys,” I can just say that Michael appears to have more patience than I for the whole thing. 😉 Hee!
Nice misdirect on this one. Really funny, as always.
Hilarious! If you know any true comic book collectors, you’d agree that this is not far from reality! Love the whole thing – esp. you and Michael dressed up for the event. 🙂
hahahahahahaha. now, I am awake. Nice buildup. Fantastic delivery. I love “denied” and I’m glad Michael recieves the wrath of Jefbot as well. Great strip this week, jefbot.
P.S. Michael, just sneak around and read his comics when he’s at school, er I mean work. hehe.
lol. i remember the horrified look on your face when you saw J’s comic books carelessly stashed in boxes. i bet you have worn a mask… 🙂
I can’t believe it. You have outdone yourself, Jefbot. This is my FAVORITE one so far. The writing, the colors, the dialogue, and the expression on our… I mean, the characters’ faces…nothing short of pure genius. You truly are a comic god. I am in awe of your power. Oh, and I still don’t care to read your “precious” comic books. 😉 Congrats, man. Outstanding work!
Great job. Love the suspense!!! I can’t believe Mike tosses it into the air. Some people have no class!!!!
Very funny. This is my favorite yet! Having been subjected to the Haz-mat delousing before entering your comic vault I can say this is actually not even as rigorous a process as you have to go through in real life 🙂
I’ve got my hand on a few gas masks if you’d like them…:)
OMG..couldn’t be laughing harder right now….very very funny!
funny, funny, funny!
thanks, bon! actually, i wouldn’t know if michael would have such patience with my comic-reading techniques as i’ve never given him the opportunity to show me.
#1JF, the only thing far from reality would be for michael to be interested in reading my comics.
akira, aaggh! i knew that was your fingerprint on my Usagi Yojimbo #6!
ambie, omg. i get chills just thinking about that. some weren’t even in boxes! they were just laying around his room. without sleeves.
michael cornacchia, domo arigato! wow, not even sure what to say.
funnyshaffer, i know. it was even hard for me to draw him throwing the comic in the air.
john, that “haz-mat delousing” is only for the vault with my signed editions and orginal artwork.
mitch, i just might take you up on that.
laura, thanks! happy it got a laugh out of you.
anonymous, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Beautiful work…I’m right there with you. As my mother used to say, “I guess we just can’t have nice things”
🙂 AS the medical expert, I have to say the hazmat practices are truly authentic – FUN and FUNNY!!!
jeff payton, i can have nice things, just nobody else can see them or touch them.
mary, heheh. your professional, medical opinions are always welcome on this site!!!
And, it doesn’t just stop at comic books. I’m surprised we’re able to read the newspaper without the sterile room
Aaand it’s obvious you have in fact read the Miracle Man series. I’m surprised nobody else caught the Kimota reference in the title.
Wonderfully done. I can appreciate anyone who can appreciate the pristine beauty of a mint condition comic, novel, movie poster, record or anything else. There’s just nothing like it *sigh*
