Glad you guys enjoyed it. For the record, the full text on the eye chart says (all run together), "E HELP ME STUCK IN EYE CHART FACTORY WE ARE DYING SO COLD SO COLD I MISS THE SUN MOM IS THAT YOU I SMELL A PIE BAKING SO DARK"
You can't read it on the reduced web version, but it's there. Personally, my favorite eye disease is "Lemon."
And there's a bit of extra Gunnerkrigg-related booty on my site now for anyone who cares to check.
I also posted the key to the Diseases of da Eye chart in the comments, but it hasn't been approved yet. Here it is, from left to right and top to bottom: Morpheus, Sauron, Apple of the Eye, Triple Iris, Zombie Eye with Nail in It, and Lemon.
"Don't Put Salt in Your Eyes" is just a Kids in the Hall reference, and a fairly well-known one, too. Unless you're too young to know what Kids in the Hall is, which would make you a whipper-snapper who needs to watch this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRbx6Zr5gDo
I also like the poster of the giant eyeball that you can't see so well in the next-to-last panel. I kind of like the idea of an optometrist's office just having a bunch of huge creepy posters of eyes staring at you. Dr. Goldberg isn't a whiz at interior decorating, but he sure loves eyes.
I'm still a little surprised, incidentally, that Tom ran all three guest comics in the first week. At least he spaced them out.
It'll be interesting to see what'll appear next week. I still think that there should be a letter or postcard from Kat talking about her visit to Italy, and something (whether a letter to Kat or something else) that tells us what Annie did during the summer holiday at Gunnerkrigg (particularly since it would offer us an opportunity to see what she likes doing in her leisure time; we know so much about what Kat's favorite pursuits are, but not Annie's).
loved this...really all i can say, and didnt notice how hilarious the posters in the background were until i read this post. Looked up Diana's (the artists) work, really good stuff www.jinxville.com/comics/
What's the name of that alphabet in Panel 6? I've been looking everywhere for it since I saw it Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove and again in this comic thebecomingcomic.com/2010/09/23/page-48/. Can someone please tell me what it is?
