So I was cleaning my room the other day and I found some disks with some old artwork on them. On one of them was this old comic I drew and posted anonymously on 4chan back in 2009. I never signed it because I drew it in a rush to troll* the comics board (it was a few days before the film would come out and everyone was feeling very emotional about Watchmen) and I was just in the habit of posting doodles anonymously around then. There was a short thread, a few people reposted it for awhile, and then after the movie hype and Watchmen discussions died down I kinda forgot about it.
I found out a few years later that the thing kinda blew up on reddit and some other sites some time after that, and some people even wrote articles about it. Someone even drew an alternate happy ending lol.
It was pretty cool but kinda weird haha.
*When I say troll, it doesn’t mean I take any of the subjects represented here or in Watchmen lightly. I just mean I made it with the intent to cause extreme emotional impact.
OH MY GOD
THE MYSTERY IS SOLVED AT LAST
you beautiful creature you
But sweetheart, you did not end this comic.
Here, let me help you.
The love (as well as the hate) you give will always come back to you at some point in your life.
Believe me, I know exactly what I am talking about.
I’ve never said or even heard of “Radge” before so no idea where that comes from….
The second last is actually the caption of my life up until a few years ago.
This is the most accurate post I have ever seen.
I consistently forget these tricks. Now I have a visual. Thanks, Internet.
