Bovine Vanishment?

Slylock Fox –  February 25th, 2013 I’m not sure who in their right mind would trust Shady Shrew to watch their business. That’s like buying drugs from Goody Gopher, or hiring Peacey Penguin to nuke a city. An accomplished group … Continue reading

This would be worse if there weren’t so many witnesses

Slylock Fox – February 23rd, 2013 I’m torn between interpreting Slylock as spacey and puzzle-obsessed, or stoic and badass. Today’s comic? Both. On one hand, he responds to this grisly assault with a stern lecture. On the other hand, he responds … Continue reading
