Four Years & 200 Strips Later…

Well, this is it! The final strip! Hard to believe this is the last time I’ll be spending my Tuesday nights trying to craft a new adventure for these little guys, but it looks like they don’t need me anymore anyways.

I do sincerely appreciate the time you’ve chosen to spend here. If you don’t want the magic to end, then please consider following my work at Cowboy Jedi and Eye-Level Entertainment.

And remember moving on isn’t always a bad thing. (Language warning on that link there.)

  7. Todd of Killjoy Comics Fame

    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,
    – Todd

    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish. Loved the comic, shame you felt there was no more leg in the old girl. Will be sorely missed.
