TFI: Tip #53

Headline: Wall Street Jumper Vanishes

Reports came in today of another suicide jumper in the wake of the recent catastrophic market activity. An unidentified man was seen falling from the 40-story Equitable Building early in the afternoon.

Oddly, employees in the building were unable to account for anyone missing among their ranks, and despite the incident being witnessed by no less than half a dozen horrified onlookers, a body was never recovered.

The third issue of TFI. Sorry to the humorists out there, I guess we’re bringing the room down again, but we’re trying to accomplish something different with this strip. Hope you enjoy!

    • coliver

    I really like the look of this one. Nice lighting.

    • coliver

      B did a damn fine job.

    Since he could survive that, I would do some messed up thrill seeking or at least try to find some kind of meaning out of life since he can not opt out.

    • coliver

      And I think sometimes you’d be able to do that. But part of thrill seeking is the danger, and there’s no danger for him.

    This is how I felt when they cancelled “The Cape”

      But, somehow, you just gotta keep on keepin’, Gary.

    Very well done, guys! Words and picture match perfectly!

    • coliver

      Thanks Mark :)!

    There’s a Mr. L. Long on the phone for you.

    • coliver

      Uhh… you’re going to have to explain that one.

  7. George Ford

    For some inexplicable reason, I am very impressed by this comic. It’s drawn and colored beautifully and it touches me in a strange place. Sorta like old Aunt Craig.

    Well done!

    • Bearman

      Aunt Craig??? hmmmmmmmmm

    • coliver

      Yeeeeah… are you sure that wasn’t Aunt Craigina? Also, thanks very much :).

  8. Michael Karell

    I think it would be a fun game to just throw yourself off a cliff into the ocean and see where you wash up.

    • coliver

      I guess that’s one way to pass the time :).

  9. Warren Frantz

    Grim, but really well done!

    • coliver

      Thanks Warren :)!
