Yeah, I made a set of stickers to be printed out on sticky paper, should anyone happen to have such a thing. I did, for some reason. Not much to be said about this installment; as those who have slogged through the Narbonic archives are only too aware, sometimes it was all I could do to throw together a goofy piece of filler like this to get through a Sunday. Still, that pile of gerbils isn’t bad, and the Che Guevara image of Artie came out surprisingly well. I did it with a Sharpie and surprisingly little Photoshop filtering.
To make myself feel better about my legacy of lame Sunday features, I’m going to run this embarrassingly complimentary poem by Peter Mack.
Alas and alack, I’ve no Gerbils to share,
No haiku, no cosplay pictures to bear
Witness for the genius that is Shaenon Garrity
Oh woe! this is soul-crushing disparity
In my own humble way I give thanks for the pleasure
Of reading this calamitous webcomicing treasure
In all of my years of webcomic exposure
I’ve not read a comic with such lofty composure
As this one lay before me, which I have spurn’d before
But now in my maturity, I so greatly adore
And now it is finished in the span of a week,
And thus my future reading looks bleak
For what can compare to this unrivall’d comic?
How will I survive without cherish’d NARBONIC?
Thank you, Peter! I feel slightly less of a loser now. Um, sorry I stopped drawing the comic.
