Why So Serious

Fox’s choice of attire around the house has given me plenty of practice free-handing decent Hawaiian shirts.

Guess he’s had his fill of jokers.

  1. I’m a little shocked he wasn’t holding a baseball bat behind his back…

  2. *snickers* i showed this to my cousin who is a huge Batman fan and he just about died from laughter. i dont know how you both manage to pull these off, but kudos 😀

  3. So many jokes in one comic. I don’t know how you do it, but keep doing it.

    1. I spotted the same issue, but actually (and amazingly I’m not kidding) I’ve thought about this specific issue once before. I determined after a lot of thought that anthropomorphic bats would either have a few wing piercings near the arm that they could thread strings through to tie the half-sleeve on, or they would have to sheathe the entire wing in a wide sleeve (clearly not the case here).

      1. The robin’s hoody sleeves seem to be extra wide and pushed up past the elbow.

  4. Those poor underprivileged children. Why don’t they get boots or shoes for the winter?

    1. Hah, the grown-ups only got shoes because I expended all my energy on that batface closeup, had none left to figure out batfeet or birdfeet. 😛

    1. apparently it’s a robin

      (although I didn’t get it without reading the comments above (especially Stephen’s))

  5. Personally I find it more annoying when hearing pre-schoolers singing that bastardized version of the song. Batman may be my favorite super hero, but as I’ve always been that not-quite-nerdy-and-not-quite-geeky kid that everyone dislikes there is a very definite limit to how much I can let that song bother me.

  6. So much adorableness in one comic. especially that bat. man you’re art just keeps getting better and better.

  7. I’m going to love it when someone clicks the “Random” button and this webcomic comes out; since my expression after reading this was: O_o

  8. I have reading this comics long enough and I have this one interesting question (for me off-course) which is not related to the current comic. Fox appears tall here, so, how tall is Fox (both the real Fox and the Fox character here in thus web comic)?

  9. Everyone’s talking about the song, and Batman. But, what really makes this one, for me, is the “bat country” line from one of God’s own prototypes, in the last panel. 🙂

    1. I’m glad i’m not the only one that went.. “Is that.. Hunter S. Thompson..?”

    1. That’s OK–I don’t think Mandy got it either.

      This entire comic was just my mind on overdrive and bouncing between puns and references. I’d already had the first part written down and just started laughing in the kitchen when I thought of the last part.

  10. Have you ever considered adding Patreon to your site? I’ve seen it on some other comics I like, and it seems to be working out pretty well for them.

    1. Short answer: Maybe.

      Long answer: Patreon does well for creators who can provide additional content to their backers on a regular basis. It’s not a set-and-forget thing like a Paypal button or even Project Wonderful adverts, it’s an additional long-term responsibility and one more thing to maintain and stay on top of.

      It’s tempting, but I’ve already got my hands full with the comic itself, my day job, and various other responsibilities — so it’s something I’m giving myself plenty of time to think about, first.

  11. “We can’t stop here. This is bat country.”

    THAT’S RACIST!

    … I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist…

  12. Jake…..no SPECIEIST! ;^P

    Mandy….I agree with King Crimson…..your artwork is incredible, and just keeps getting better.
