It’s Not COVID

Mandy\'s avatar

  Hello! It’s been a while! I don’t know if you’ve been keeping up with the news but a whole lot is going on and I got a little distracted adjusting to the “new normal.” I hope you and your loved ones are well and adjusting as best you can!

A while ago I was down for about a week with a migraine – no, it wasn’t COVID-19, but still inspired this little strip (and Fox did kindly keep me stocked with sandwiches, snacks, and aspirin while I was out of commission).

I have no idea what the update schedule will be like right now, but I intend to keep drawing and sharing comics here and on Twitter! Thanks for reading and stay healthy 🙂

  1. A WEEK-LONG MIGRAINE?!? Lordy that must’ve been a bad week for you!! (…and Fox. ;-)) Sounds like you have gotten better though and I am thankful for that!

    …and Ted looks quite happy. 😉

    1. As someone who’s mom suffers from long migraines…yeah, it’s awful. It affects the whole family too, because we’re all tiptoeing around, whispering, no yardwork, no shop work, nothing that makes noise.

  2. I know how you feel… I get Cluster headaches, and those are a b$#&!… Hope you are doing better though!!!

  3. I love your Spiderman/Deadpool comic! Plus I just noticed Deadpool’s swords have tiny masks too XD amazing!!

        1. See, I was under the impression that he just made more sandwiches. Why did you assume that was her sandwich?

          1. Because it’s Fox? I mean, I know the *real* Fox would never do something like that to a sick Mandy, but comic Fox is more of an asshole, and totally would.

    1. “Fox is clueless” might be better. “Asshole” is for when he does something mean(ish) -on purpose-. 🙂

        1. Hi, Fox! 🙂 Because Mandy appears to be reaching for the sandwich in the 2nd panel, I ass-u-me-d Ted’s sandwich was -another- sandwich -like- Mandy’s. 🙂

  4. From the look of it it seems to be “man flu”. But migrane is bad. I hope you will find a good treatment.

  5. Glad to hear it wasn’t COVID. Migraine headaches suck, especially the long ones. So far I have managed to avoid the COVID-no small miracle since Arizona is/was the recent hotspot. As of today, the Arizona Department of Health Services reported 91,863 cases in Maricopa County and 13,058 cases in Pima County (where I live). Hospitals in Phoenix and Tucson are running close to max capacity and the medical examiner’s offices in both counties are prepared to store bodies awaiting pickup from the funeral directors once/if a crush of deaths overwhelms the storage capacity of the funeral homes and hospital morgues.

  6. I would like a basket of chips,
    A beef chimichanga with a side of sour cream
    I would like some guacamole on my chimichanga
    With a quesodilla of tomato, onion, and vegetables
    I should like a burrito with beans, beef, and
    I would like a carne asado taco
    Could you put some hot sauce on that for me?
    No, inside the taco, not on the side
    Yes, can I have a carne asado taco?
    Not a pollo asado, we don’t have chicken
    Do you have guacamole?
    Can you make me some guacamole?
    Ok, on my burrito I would like the muchaco beef and the shredded pork
    And some more cheese, please

  7. Thought… No one has asked just what Fox put inside Ted’s sandwich! (Looks pretty much like peanut butter to me. 🙂 )

  8. Hey, Fox! Do you still have that recipe/instructions for making Hardtack? 🙂

      1. Thanks, ThisFox! That was so long ago that I had no idea what strip it was on. 🙂
