  1. That was awesome!
    Nice subtle swerve build up to Child snatching gumball machine call back. I was thinking “man this one is pretty weak” right up until the last two panels. That second to last panel is my favorite one ever.

    oh the terrible cost of gumballs…

  3. NotMike Says:

    I think it’s the implicit sacrifice of the machine’s own gumballs that really makes this one for me.

  4. David Kehoe Says:

    At least it let him keep the Gumballs.
    The child predator code is sacrosanct: If you profer candy for innocence, then candy must be supplied.

    I really love how character expression can really effectively be implied by context.

    I didn’t alter the gumball machine drawing at all; I just placed him leaning out the window. But with the rope there and Larsen’s childish pose you can totally see it clutching the steering wheel whispering “c’monnnnnnn…. c’monnnnnnn…. just another 2 seconds….”

    You know what they say:

    Caution to those who would go looking for dirty street candy, lest they find it.

    K…but would Larson really mind?

  8. “K…but would Larson really mind?”

    Larsen is the Anti Denny…all talk and no freak.
    If Denny had been taken they would have found the Gumball machine crying by a stream, desperatly trying to wash the greasy smudges off his glass dome.

  9. baredfeetandteeth Says:

    It all falls into place. My world makes sense again.

  10. engtech Says:

    I love that he at least got some gumballs out of the whole ordeal.
