Creepy Comix

Just read this post in Comics Must Be Good about the fabled Mickey Mouse strips where he tries to kill himself:

Yeesh! And of course that brought to mind a recent Popeye strip where Olive Oyl tries to do exactly the same thing...

And then I thought about this really creepy-ass series of Garfield strips where he apparently falls into some slip in time or whatever where he's really dead or does not exist:

But then, of course, there is the most depressing, disturbing comic strip of them all:


  1. There is a strip of Peanuts in which Linus is telling Charlie Brown how he was trying to talk to a girl, but just got too nervous and didn't know what to do or say.

    The "punchline" was "So I hit her."

  2. I remember seeing that Garfield series when I was a kid. In retrospect it seems fairly fucked up.
