Unless you’re Darin Morgan, this strip is not for sale.
This has always been one of my favorite episodes.
Did this episode inspire the Machine of Death books?
What a great way of interpreting that episode.
A truly beautiful installment, Sarge.
So excellent. I love the last panel.
Now, how do I become Darin Morgan…
Change two letters and drop everything after the hyphen?
I hope Darin Morgan has a google alert set up.
One of the pleasures in watching this episode is Bruckman’s relationship with Mulder and Scully. He and Scully really hit it off (despite, or perhaps in part because of, her skepticism about his abilities), while his teasing of Mulder is more one-sided. Seeing this reflected in Shaenon’s lyrical treatment of the episode makes me happy.
This is such a wonderful treatment. It’s holding me right on the verge of tears.
MofTW has made me look forward to Fridays even more so than usual but you have outdone yourself Lady with this one, what a perfect way to describe this sad wise and funny episode, one of the best there is , again THANK YOU
Nice ID photo, Mulder.
that is a reference to the simpsons episode i think so great to see it in this wonderful piece of art
yup, i’m thinking simpsons on that one.
Regarding the ETA: Wow!
O______O WOW indeed!
To be honest, much as I hated to do it, I bent my rule. Darin Morgan did not buy the strip.
Glen Morgan did.
Amazing! Congratulations !!! This is sooo cool and definitely well deserved
Man. So awesome.
This was an amazing episode. I loved the almost poetically unglamorous treatment of psychics it had: you have Yappi, this spotlight-hogging fraud, and then the two real psychics. One of them is a morose, elderly schlub with a ‘gift’ that makes his life miserable, and the other is this polite, nervous little man driven to murder out of a bizarrely accurate sense of fatalism.
“You haven’t figured it out yet? You kill people because you’re a murderous psychomaniac.”
“Wow, I hadn’t thought of that. That… yes, that makes sense. It really all makes sense now. Thanks: that’s a load off my mind.”
(Quoting from memory here: please don’t shoot.)
