    I created an account just to post on this strip.

    My partner and I have read this from its beginnings, on this one, we both lost our shit.

    10/10. Keep it up, Please!

    Heh, I'm embarrassed by how long it took me to get this joke. I read it three times and could not figure out why the last kid didn't look happy all of the sudden...
    ...then I finally realized we were missing a kid.

    I love the background camper designs and this is another perfect example.
    Also, perfect gag is perfect. :)

    Maybe I'm just soppy, but I don't find this funny - I find it terribly sad. I shed tears. This sort of thing happens all the time. But it's great art, and I loved "wet"..

    Anyone see the same thing I saw in panel three, or am I the only one old enough to remember Bonk?

    The real fridge horror kicks in when you realize they have no means of slowing down when they reach the end either.

    I had to read it through a second time to get it, but then i flipped my shit. This is really dark, and really funny.

    Kids think they are invincible. Also the main logo has a kids skull on it so why anyone is surprised one dies; I don't know

    Kinda summarizes the whole comic. :)

    Soooo right but at the same time sooooooo wrong :P. Another great comic Katie, keep up the awesome work.

    Cannot find the kittie for the life of me though :(

    I love these background-camper strips! Finding the new parachute is still my favorite, though.

  • Eric the PrezEric the Prez Registered User regular
    I think the kitty is in between the two dirt piles but Im not sure

    wait! what did you mean by finding the new parachute? do you mean there has been a whistle in every comic since it was dropped??? if that is the case I will have to go back, and spend weeks looking! This will turn into a better 'where's waldo'! Remember after you found all the waldos in the back of the book, it had a check list of all the other stuff you need to find?

    Katie - not telling you how to run your strip, but that would make a great one. People spending weeks to check off everything. Just 1 panel comic over viewing the camp grounds with TONS of wacky stuff going on, and a check list of all the stuff to find. You will have people going absolutely mad! screaming in the psych ward "I FOUND THE CAT! You can let me out of this padded room now!"

  • shoeboxjeddyshoeboxjeddy Registered User regular
    This comic is almost as dark as Last Halloween... where monsters are eating people every other strip. Pretty amazing stuff Katie!

  • Detroit_KeithDetroit_Keith Registered User new member
    I THINK I found the kitty. Lower left panel, just to the right of the 4th kids hair. You can see the top of a kitty head & part of 1 eye, peeking over the dark brown bushes. If I am right, I think this was the hardest one yet.

  • meatnerdmeatnerd Registered User regular
    Ive been reading for months now. WHAT IS THIS KITTY EVERYONE SPEAKS OF IN EVERY COMIC?! Is it the monster hiding in the bush in the first panel?

    ps, this strip is loads of fun and terrible sadness. It makes me not wanna zipline ever again

    I believe the "new parachute" was in reference to this strip.

    Finding kitty gets pretty easy once you know the trick of it.

    1) If the setting is inside the cabin or a closed-space, then a kitty indoors is pretty obvious and easy spot. So the only glimmer of a hope of a chance is to hide the cat outside amongst the clutter of environmental details. (Look out windows if this is the case.)

    2) Kitty is sometimes disguised as a silhouette, dare we say, a profile, that is the same color as the background. The trouble with humans is that they try to pick out kitties or boogeymen by their details, and not by their general shape being an aberration against the backdrop. You fill in colors and detail afterwards to confirm that this aberrant shape is what you are looking for. (Many misspent hours of my youth were spent playing shooters, where just such a skill is handy.)

    3) Use logic. Narrow down the possibilities where cat may be hidden (similar to step #1).

    4) After logic, just scan your eyes panel by panel. Left-to-right-top-to-bottom on every panel. You can sometimes notice sudden aberrant changes in the backdrop panel-to-panel, especially if the environmental details are relatively static. This is the brute force method and it does take a little practice.

    How we apply that to today's strip.

    In today's strip, we can deduce several things. It makes no sense to hide a real flesh-and-blood cat on the children. That'd be obvious. Now Katie could be hiding a picture of a cat, but that's breaking the established rules of the game. In which case: proceed to look frumpy and yell at her. She has broken the social contract and you must remind her loudly and with vitriol.

    Katie won't hide the kitty inside our panoramic view of the mountains and forest. This would break important artist rules about perspective, consistent narrative and whatnot. We have not established the existence of gargantuan cats nor do humans have eagle vision. And Katie is nothing if not an artist.

    Therefore, the only logical place is to hide in the clutter on top of the cliff. There are only two panels where the cliff is shown and we can disqualify one of those panels because there's nowhere to hide.

    If Katie reads this, I only hope that does not touch of an arms race where she seeks to actively thwart my cat-scanning methodologies.

    I actually love that the majority of the comments are about the elusive cat, and not about the wonderfully dark comic. Please keep up these background character strips. They are really funny.

    Brilliant.

    I found it! AT LAST.

    It is a shame the camper that looks just like me died. I have a missing toof, #2 shave, and bags under the eyes. It's literally child me, but I died that day. I'm a ghost

    Okay, I laughed SO HARD. It took me a second read-through to get it. So dark. So funny.

    The bush in the second panel

    Just got an account here just for that comment, but also to say that this comic is awesome. Just got what happened in this one though,.. There had better be a river down there or a lot of bushes or something...

    Okay, I didn't get this strip my first time through. Then I finished reading the comic yesterday (a few hours after I started) and decided to start a cat hunt since I didn't realize it was a thing until midway through the archives. Then I got back to this one again... it took me so many rereads to figure out what happened, and it's hilarious, and awesomely subtle.
