If anyone is wondering why our two favorite crows set off on a completely unrelated story arc, it was this strip I drew back in April, or May, or whenever it was. I felt it looked too much like a Tacomic, and with respect to RR- I did not post it. Now, with the news that the City Manager is being removed, I figured I owed it to everyone to at least show it at least once.

Yes, the story arc continues- but soon our corvid companions will be back in town to turn over rocks and expose the slimy wriggly things hiding beneath.

It would seem that this strip (and in fact, all O&J) is now blacklisted by the TNT, apparently.

Wow...That's one poignant strip. Sayz it all.

Love it! Nice rendering of the Crown Vic

That's from memory, as when I did this I didn't take the time to get a reference pic. (So if you can identify it, that's good, right?)

When this was story boarded the crows were saying something else, he resisted drawing it for a week and missed a weekly deadline, when he finally drew it he changed the dialog to the current and we had a good talk about were the strip was going.

I (mere writer) am a rude and obnoxious person completely capable of giving RR a run for his money in the snark and crude department. Jinx (THE artist) is by his nature polite and considerate and does not draw half of the story boards I work up on current and local events.

We are working finding a balance. Life is a work-in-progress.

Yes, it's just like she said.
I am too civil for snark (?).

I like the chalked hearts.

you can park there free all day. Now you have no excuse for avoiding downtown

Metered parking with a pay station 2 blocks away in 3, 2, 1...

Incidentally, I prefer using the bLink. (Walk to Freighthouse Square, take bLink, go downtown, come back. No petrochemicals involved.) (Sorry, Thorax.)

No offense here. I'm pleased with less of it getting burned.

TNT blogs seem to have no beef with feedtacoma comic links..

Hmmm, very interesting. I suggest a "velvet painting revolution".

So, I'm coming late to the party, but am I the only one to notice the nod to They Live...or is that just my interpretation?

No, you are correct. Check here for more on that theme:
