    Dang! I took the wrong career path! I should have become an Internet comic strip writer who only does three comics a week, instead of working on unsolved problems. I’m sure that 1000 years from now, the only name that will be remembered from present times will be Francesco Marciuliano.

    Ces is also a writer and does the strip Sally Forth as well.

    Well, That’s my career path. Being an internet cartoonist that makes no work for myself and probably no money either.

    It’s a strip about regret in general, not about grad school. I would never denigrate any academic or professional pursuit that was meaningful to another (whether that be grad school or cartooning). I’m sorry if I offended you.

    Great strip. If you couldn’t figure out the theme, and thought it was about grad school specifically, you probably got into grad school by mistake.

    geez, sore spot much?

    OUCH!, he got me right in the grad school!

    Ces obviously had no idea how many post-grad leaves read his strip, and how many of them are easily offended

    Funnier than the old leaf gags that used to show up in Funky Winkerbean.

    I think it’s a shame Ces only replies to the comments to apologize for offending people.

    I can’t believe Francesco’s run on Sally Forth hasn’t been put into paperback yet.

    Paperback? Think big — deluxe Fantagraphics hardcovers. Maybe once they finally get through all 50 years of, whatchamacallit, “Walnuts.”

    I think it’s funny, because that’s often _exactly_ how I feel about grad school! :)

  13. Matthew said, on September 11, 2010 at 9:56 am

    Actually, I wasn’t offended. I’m just pessimistic about my chances as a cartoonist. That’s all.

    That’s some pretty intense over-identifying with a cartoon leaf. Obviously grad school is for scrubbing away every trace of perspective from the interior of your skull.

    =v= Leaf gags were invented by Charles Schulz, not Tom Batiuk. You would know that if you’d bothered to go to grad school.

    I still want this on a print.

  17. Matthew said, on September 13, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    You should have seen the leaf’s dissertation on Agriculture. It was amazing.

    Matt Groening is definitely harsher on the topic. Witness lower left corner.
