West of Bathurst 545

Link to first comic    Link to previous comic     Link to next comic     Link to last comic

It is West of Bathurst's third birthday. Thus, something a little extra:

West of Bathurst anniversary 2009

So...West of Bathurstis three years old. I would like to thank my lawyer...and my other lawyer...and my other lawyer's lawyer...and possibly Halle Berry and her lawyers. More importantly, I would like to thank you for reading, even when the $#@%$@% site goes down every five $@%$*&^ minutes. I may just be a little irritable today.

At any rate...WoB now has a reasonable number of readers, the great majority of whom have discovered it via word of mouth. It has a single entry on TV Tropes (no, I didn't put it there. I do find it quite amusing, though). Some people seem to like the strip quite a lot. That's good enough for me.

The "play" mentioned in the panel above is not a reference to goofing off but a reference to a real and actual musical that a friend and I have opening at the Calgary Fringe Festival starting next Friday (oh God...starting next Friday). If you're in or around Calgary, come check us out. Pertinent details can be found here.

Panel 1: Inside Casey's room, Casey is still crying as Marie glares at him.

Marie: Casey, why did you have to make me hate you?

Casey: Because I kissed you.

Panel 2:

Marie: You said I was imagining that.

Casey: No, all right? It happened.

Panel 3:

Casey: But...I can't get involved with anyone. When I do, things...go wrong. Not just a little wrong. Earth-shatteringly, sanity-obliteratingly wrong.

Panel 4:

Marie: So to save my sanity, you set out to systematically destroy it?

Casey: There may have been some flaws in my plan.

Alt-Text: So ominous...and so very, very vague...

Extra Anniversary Panel:

Kari sits at her desk, an open book, a laptop, and a piece of paper with a blank four-page comic on it in front of her.

Kari [thinks]: Play! Comic! Play! Comic! [In tiny letters] Course for which I am actually getting paid! [Back to normal] Play! Comic! Play!

Alt-Text: Actually, right now, it's more like..."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"
