An April Foolon April 1, 2016 at 12:01 am
HA! Got ya! It’s april fools day! I hope you like today’s comic. I spent all of march coming up with it.
HA! April fools. I bet you noticed a lot of Webcomics out there with similar jokes yesterday. Well it was all a big joke that Peter of Rock Paper Cynic and I had. With the help of Alex Norris (Who created the comic script we all copied) and a group of webcomic buds we wanted everybody to post the same joke, with the same composition and then get angry on social media that everybody copied their comic. It went so well that even comics and people that weren’t “in” on the initial joke jumped on board. It was crazy. All the awesome directions this whole thing took. There’s too many out there to know and find but here’s a list someone on reddit has been compiling. Thanks for sharing in the goofs!
I take it that the simultaneous appearance of this strip
is not coincidence.
He stole my comic.
Really? I can’t tell, cause I saw one posted before you posted yours.
And this one http://explosm.net/comics/4257/
and probably many more.
Ahaha jesus I can’t wait to see the final count on how many comics joined this joke. I’m up to 4.
Another?! I can’t keep up! I’m making a list for those, like me, who are trying to track all these “copied” comics down: http://www.willpjk.com/newsfeat/the-extremely-original-way-webcomic-artists-are-making-fools-of-us-all
Since we’re collecting them:
Thanks for that.
Who pranked who?
That imgur link links to a different one. sheet. I guess I’m pranked.
Idk if this is some Meta joke going around between you webcomic artists. But OwlTurdComix (OwlTurd.com) also used this joke. I am assuming, due to sheer abundance, that this might be an in joke.
This is some crazy April Fools Day webcomic shiznit goin on today.
More than 55+ comic artists stole your comic so far. What are you gonna do about this?! 😉

Wow, sooooo many webcomics jumping on this bandwagon.
Are you coming to the calgary expo this year?
He still plans to go to the 2014 one, based on the latest front-page update.
OH NO! Andrew’s dead….again! I always know he’s died when nothing new shows up. I am bereaved (for real, if he’s actually dead). Dang it…Bowie…Prince…Andrew.
Maybe…we are all the fools.
Killed by the wife for dumping a bucket of cold water on her head?
It was a accident involving a LEGO minifig and ….. no, it’s just to horrible … I just can’t ….. [uncontrollable sobbing]
Has Andrew been in an accident or something?
Last Facebook post is May 1st….
That’s the most recent anything I can find from him.
His last tweet was 15 hours ago, so he’s still alive!
No comics for us until Overwatch becomes boring.
It’s almost July… Where are you, Andrew? The world needs you.
Now it is July…
Remember when this webcomic updated? Pepperidge Farms remembers. Kind of. Its memory is actually getting a bit hazy.
That LEGO injury must have been worse than anyone imagined.
Why does Andrew hate us? Why does Andrew hate the world? It’s obvious he does, for why else would he abandon us so in our hour of need?
so I binge-read the whole thing only to find out that there hasn’t been a new comic for over three months? what am I supposed to do now?
…might as well.
The rest of us are.
Its dead Jim. Not been so bummed since the end of “Filthy Lies”
Andrew is alive and well, spoke to him at Comic Expo in Calgary. Life is just extremely hectic right now and things need to get done..I’m sure he will come back to us eventually, we just need to be patient and wait with the buckets of water until then
Well, That’s it for me. I’m done checking this one.
It’s a bummer, but, hey, Real Life happens.
Christmas is coming up and I’m bored, need another comic. 🙂
Time to move this one to the X-comic / might be dead, menu.
I still miss calamities of nature.
Is this gonna be a massive meta-joke by having the next update on April 1st, 2017?
Knowing him he will post it at midnight and then nothing until the domain gets repossessed.
I’m here for the memorial service.
Maybe… WE are the fools.
Well said. Another one bites the dust…
Damnit, Andy! Why you gotta make fools outta your fans? Why have you forsaken us?
Check his twitter and scroll down to April 1 2017 it will make more sense 😛
2+ years since the last update. Every time I check, it’s the same bucket falling. I feel that there is some measure of humor in the comic ending on April Fools’ day.
I still get a kick out of the archives. I look forward to any work from Arg, whatever he decides to do.
I am sorry we contributed to your pain.
You owe us nothing but continued health.
We miss you.
