Consumed By Flames

“Golly gee-whiz, Nihilism Dad, you always know just what to say to make me realize how futile our petty existence, how insignificant our place in the Universe, how pointless everything we are IS. You’re the best! I’m gonna go steal from a sick person because fuck it!”

Dearest Sharksploders, please help me get my Patreon over the $2000 hump. Comics is my full time job, but it doesn’t currently pay full time money. I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work lately (which distracts me from making comics) to make ends meet, and I’ve agreed to attend more conventions this year than I really feel comfortable with (which REALLY distracts me from making comics) out of financial fear. Every little bit helps and is QUITE appreciated.

  1. Dont worry though, your consciousness will probably have been obliberated by that point anyway, as the fragile meat prison you temporarily inhabit inevitably breaks down. As you slip into oblivion, you’ll finally acknowledge what you always knew deep down – that the comforting lies of Man were all just that, lies. There’s no rewards, no punishments, just a gaping abyss waiting to swallow up everything you are. And then, darkness.

  2. We need Existentialism Dad as a counterpoint to Nihilism Dad. “Yeah, we’ll all be consumed by flames, but that’s no reason to go around being a dick, son.”

  3. An optimist says “The glass is half full.”
    A pessimist says “The glass is half empty.”
    An engineer says “The glass is twice as large as it needs to be.”
    A nihilist says “The glass doesn’t matter because we’re all going to die.”
