Riding through your town with his head on fire

Member Rated:

The long-running webcomic A Softer World came to an end this month.  Not familiar with it?  Go take a look.  (You can click the "fnord" link in the banner to get a random strip.)

...

I know, right?  What the hell was that?

ASW was weird, but whether you like it or hate it, one thing you have to give it is that it was unique.  It has a style and a voice unlike any other webcomic I've seen.  And it occurred to me, you know, we could do a half-decent parody of it with the tools we have here.

So, the rules for this contest are pretty simple:

No characters, no props, no dialogue.  There must be three panels and at least one of them must have narration.

Your goals are twofold:

1.  Mimic ASW's style.
2.  Be funny.

You don't have to do both of those things, but you have to do at least one.  The strip that does the best job of meeting one or both of those goals will be the winner.

I'll judge this around, let's say, Thursday the 18th.

Have fun!

I look upon the solitude of my daily existence, and I weep
There will be nobody to mourn me, merely replace and repeat my actions
As long as they can defuse the C4.

Whenever you deal with difficult people
         you get this look                                       that says
"your obituary is going to be very specific"

Distant sailboat. Off in the distance. Being distant... and stuff.....
Life is mysterious or something....
This isn't a blatant ripoff of "Deep Thoughts" by Jack Handy.

CC613 - Genocide is Painless by Kevin_Keegans_Perm
6-10-15
The simplicity of the village was what first struck me
Quaint, backward, yet somehow at one with the forest surroundings.
It made the genocide that followed so much easier

A Swifter Wind Attempt I by Neo11
6-10-15
This old library used to be the place to go, packed with visitors every day
Now, it sits nearly empty. Almost sad in a way
Perhaps it was a bad idea to get rid of the 'Adults Only' section

A Swifter Wind Attempt II by Neo11
6-10-15
My wife whispers, 'What could be more lovely than a day at the beach?"
I lean over and whisper, "Topless."
"A topless beach"

A Swifter Wind Attempt III by Neo11
6-10-15
I stare into the photo and ponder what it could mean
Perhaps it is some deep form of art, or is meant to resemble a large storm about to cause destruction
Then I stop kidding myself and realize it is nothing more than a toilet flushing after the cleaning liquid is added

CC613 - Life's a Beach by Kevin_Keegans_Perm
6-12-15
The serenity was overwhelming, there was not a person to be found
Of all the beaches in the world, this one was as perfect as could be
And they ruined it by making me come back to show them where she was buried.

CC613 - Poetry in Motion by Kevin_Keegans_Perm

It was in this bed, that poet John Sotham spoke his final words
A struggling unknown in life, in death his works became much sought after
His dying wish ..."Please let me go, I have a family"

A Shorter Wing by evil_d

I dreamt I was devouring a dozen giant marshmallows
and they were fighting back, flailing at me with their puffy arms and legs
and all of a sudden it wasn't a dream and they weren't marshmallows

"You can't go home again," I told her,
but maybe I should have mentioned the booby traps specifically.

Good entries so far.  I especially like the one where RCLG sacrifices his health rather than just skip the contest.

Last call for comics.  Judging sometime tomorrow.

Okay!  Thanks to everyone who entered.  It's the moment of truth.

Runner-up this time is four_legged_tripod.  I feel like he really got the spirit of the contest.  His A Softer-er World 3 quickly made the top rated list and was one of my early favorites to win.

But I'm actually awarding the victory to Kevin_Keegans_Perm for this entry:

I really like the twist ending to this one; it's clever as well as funny.  And I'll be honest, I didn't get it at first, and I think maybe my delayed reaction made it better for me.

So congratulations, KKP!  You're up for CC614.
