Roar of the Tigers comics introduces a new hero

This is totally true. Absolutely something that happened.

As before, click each page to make it larger/more readable.

eta: If your comment does not show up right away, don’t fear! Because the spam blocker on the new MVN is weird and, well, new, I’m having to ‘teach’ it what’s OK and what isn’t, and sometimes (at this point, often) stuff goes into the Moderation Queue of Limbo Doom instead of posting right away. I’ll approve comments as soon as I can get to them. Yes, this is annoying for me too, but I tried turning it off and, surprise! We got a ton of spam.

So comment away– it will definitely show up on the site. It just might not be immediate.

eta 2: OK, the settings have been changed and comments should show up more easily. If spam also shows up, I’ll deal with it when I get home on the later side of Monday afternoon. Hopefully there will be no spam, only the soothing presence of Matt Joyce with sci fi weaponry.

  1. I thought I read about this incident on the back of the sports page!

  2. Nice job, Sam. Pretty ridiculous, which is exactly what I expected, though you threw me a curveball by making Joyce — not Inge — the hero.

  3. Ah, it’s even more amazing than I had imagined. I was enjoying it immensely, but the sudden Farns appearance at the end sold it for me 110%. PERFECTION.

  4. LoL, now that was bizarre. I did not expect that nor did I read about that story in the news. Why don’t our local reporters ever get the big scoop?
    Paws can have safe haven in Comerica!

  5. Thank cats for our baby Tiger kittens! You never know when they will wind up saving the day!

  7. OMG, insanely hilarious… My co-workers had to ask me if I was OK… Good God, really should have looked at it over the weekend. Again, if u print this, I would gladly pay for the privilege of a copy.

  8. This is pretty much the best thing ever, in the history of EVER. OMG! Also, I love that Paws talks in Internet speak. And that Farnsworth has an arsenal in his locker.
    You should send this to Matt Joyce. I bet he’d love it. :P
    Will there be another issue? I’m greedy!

  10. David, the images were pulled directly from the newswire. ;)
    h20polopunk, much as I love the absurdity of Brandon Inge, the fact remains that he never rescued a kitten in the clubhouse. That kinda heroism must be rewarded. With awkward roles in poorly-drawn comics!
    PfP, it was a throwaway joke that seized my brain and would not let go, heh.
    Paul, this takes place in Comerica! Obviously it is not safe enough. And I dunno why the major papers didn’t run with it; maybe there’s a conspiracy in place to keep Swisher and Pierzynski’s true forms secret?
    heitk1le, exactly. We are lucky to have such brave and resourceful cats on our squad. ;)
    Jeff, there may be printing in the future, perhaps a compilation once I’ve got a bunch of ’em done.
    ivan, ha ha, I’m not sure if he’d like it or if he’d recoil in confusion and terror. And yes, there will be more issues. Not immediate (they take a while to draw!), but what the hell else do I have to post about for most of the rest of the offseason, right?

  11. My favorite part was about Matt Joyce. Protector of the Kittens! Brilliant.

  12. If there’s anything better than this comic on the in(tig)ernet, I can’t imagine what it is – FEAR THE TRUE FORMS OF THE WHITE SOX!!
    I’m featuring it on Absolute Michigan today.

  13. Jules, it’s only the truth, you know! :)
    Farlane, awwww, thanks! And that’s totally what they’re like on the inside. No doubt in my mind.

  14. i LOVE how Swisher smells like Ohio. (Boo Ohio State!)
    My favorite part was Farnsworths secret weapon stash.
    And of course i love the fact that Matt is the hero.

  15. I love that you called Matt “Protector of Kittens” :D

  16. Shan, re: Boo Ohio State….. PRECISELY. :)
    Gracie, hey, I just use the facts over here! Callin’ it like it’s been reported. ;)
