You guys were starting to make me nervous! I'm assuming that this one is an "Oops, we had to go with Backup Plan Zeta", since the art is different ;D

Way to get it in under the wire though!

I'm not one to comment on weight, I'm heavier myself, but this comic sort of reminded me of this show I watched recently. A woman was commenting on how she depended on food banks on a regular basis, and without them she would starve to death. She must have been 250 at least, I can't imagine that she is doing so poorly to say that!

Any way, to comment on the comic, Isn't this the way things like this tend to go? Like, we're going to collect X amount of donations for a worthy cause, and then we're going to hold a raffle and give a hefty cash prize! Wtf.

@Magravan: Actually, we'd been planning to go with this comic all week. The holdup is that this was my first week using my new Wacom Intuos4 tablet to draw the comic, and I'm not used to it yet, so it took me waaaaay longer than pen and paper. Plus, I've never colored the comic before.

@Skrael: Today's comic is based on a recent real life occurrence, and although charity is charity and it's always good, I felt a little weird that a pizza party was being offered to whoever "won"at charity and that the reward for providing for hungry people was that we got to gorge ourselves.

Well, it's that one iota better than "slacktivism", but still... I suppose if they would have invited the people the canned goods were for as well, it would have been okay.

"Give Money for Haiti... with Raffle! First Prize: Exclusive vacation in Haiti, because it's so cheap there right now."

Yeah, it is pretty whack.

Nice job with the comic. I've even noticed the poor person sitting out in the cold out that window watching everyone else gouged themselves with Pizza. xD

@Effigy_Power: At least the vacation in Haiti as a prize would benefit Haitians by promoting tourism, and thereby ever so slightly helping the economy.

@JackitK: I'm glad you noticed, since that was the entire joke.
