    Your precise attention to detail really makes these tiny moments, momentous.
    Great work Thomas.

    Huh. Weird. nicely done!

  3. Nathan

    quirky, droll. Great work, Thomas!

    Well-done, Thomas! It left me wanting to know more. The ending seems more like a cliff-hanger. Write another chapter and put it on ACT-I-VATE–even if you have to take it into the realm of fiction, it’s an interesting way to start a story.

  5. Tim

    I love your style, Thomas.

  6. Tim Hamilton

    It’s unnerving and creepy and soothing all at the same time.

    love your drawing, want to know more about these people. Love how you do your work and the use of negative space. Bravo

    This could have been written about the isolation of my marriage… I think that ending is so bleakly hopeful.

  9. Thomas Baehr

    I thank everybody so much!

    And to Laurel, well, I feel sorry for poking in your eye with that. Um … There is hope, right?!?

    I don’t know which is the best? The comic or the comments.

    hey thomas. nice work! i particularly like the little details like the particular set of Koh-I-Nor pens on the desk.

    The lint roller comment at the beginning leads me to believe that the guy just wanted to watch his movie in peace…

    My guess - she wanted him to go look in the fridge and check to see if we…i mean they needed milk.

    Later he recieved a call from the police. Her body was found in her car at a 7 Eleven….


    Engrossing story.

    Loved the story! It felt slow at first then realized that was part of its charm.

    Having an apartment where you can hear every word is not unusual have had several of those before but having the character not answer the phone for no apparent reason made no sense.

    This is really great, Tim. The story flows very nicely and the art really compliments it a lot. I agree that this is one of the best comics I’ve read of yours.
