Rat Retrospective: #2 & #1

Ok, it is time to wrap up this six-part series examining some of my favorite Rat Tangent strips!

Rat Tangent’s Top Ten… #2:

December 9th, 2009 – “A Bad Year For Swine”

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t have the skill sets necessary to be a successful comic strip creator. However, if I could pull a strip off like this every day, then that would be another story. If my number one strip wasn’t so epic, then this would be a serious contender for the best one. As I stated yesterday, when Rat Tangent was successful, it was equal parts funny, poignant, and well-drawn. I humbly submit this as a classic.

Rat Tangent’s Top Ten… #1:

September 15th, 2010 – “We Are All Conserved”

Even at the beginning of the Lab Rats, I had this strip in mind. In fact, Feynman was introduced so that I could get to a place where this strip made sense. When I made the decision to wrap up Rat Tangent, getting this strip in was priority #1. The law of conservation of mass has always been one of my favorite laws of nature. I think it is downright mind-blowing when you think about it. Hopefully, I did it a little justice here.

Well, that’s it! Thank you for taking a look at this retrospective of my top ten strips. Enjoy the last strip tomorrow. Thanks for sharing some of your time with the rats and me.

    Mark! A phenomenal final strip, punchline after witty punchline. Congratulations on a superb run of a staggeringly high-quality comics. It’s been a pleasure to ride along, and I sure am going to MISS all my favorite little rats! An honor to know you, so glad you joined the KJC team so long ago, and very happy that you kept up with the Rats all this time — and looking forward to your future projects.
    Yours in ink,
