    Well done. Mad Magazine look with that disturbing unknown world of what’s up with some of your neighbors.

  2. josh

    Great New York-centric N-D-N story in the MAD mold! That was some powerful prayer that drove the Moraleses and the Garcias from “paradise”! I particularly liked the TV-looting blackout grandma on the first page.

  3. Lawrence Klein

    Very enjoyable. Great writing and great art.

  4. Patrick Brosseau

    Good story…and yaaay for the Rick Parker art!

  5. Jim D.

    Wow, that is some crazy shit right there. And I mean that in the best possible way.

  6. Lee B.

    This was a ton of fun! I loved the baby repulsive babies. And I’m glad there was a happy ending. Nice work, Michele and Rick!

  7. EveL Prince

    Hey Michele,
    This strip rocks. Thanks for sending it along. I always enjoy your work so much.

  8. Belinda

    Hey Michele,

    As the oldest (as in knowing you the longest) of your friends, I can say that looks nothing like your mother. And she would have made you clean the floor! Ha, ha, ha (or lol if you prefer) Great strip. (Poor mouse.)

    Great job Rick and Michele!

  10. George O'Connor

    Great crazy story, and I love the beautiful grotesquerie of the artwork. I’d love to see it larger so I could take in all the gruesome details.

  11. Rob Camacho

    Great story and art. I want to see more of Rick’s cool artwork. I especially liked all the characters leaning out of the apartment windows. I bet Rick could create a funny strip about each one of them.

  12. Jonny ClockWorks


    True Old School New York Grit. Great Work, Michele and Rick.
