Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 6 of 6 Finale (of sorts)

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

The Hollow Men, T.S. Eliot

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. Let’s see how horrible it can get. Pretty damn horrible, I would say.

Day 6, last day ever: Oh, for God’s sake. Run it into the ground and leave it to bleed to death, didn’t you Bolle and Shulock? Bolle’s career is over, but anyone who’d hire Margaret Shulock to do anything should remember what she did to Apartment 3G at the end. I know I’ll remember.

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 5 of 6

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 1 more day of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 5: “So smile, Margo, and move on.” Will these be the words our heroine bestows upon us that we might face the future without fear, regret, or despair? If so, then screw you, Margo. Don’t let the screendoor hit you on the ass on your way out. Bitter? Moi?

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 3 of 6

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 3 days of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 3: “Here comes Margo!” God laughs at me and my puny hope that maybe, just maybe, this strip will have a decent ending.

In other strip ending news, Momma (have read) and Lockhorns (dislike) ended today. Thank goodness Comics Curmudgeon is on the job (unlike Shulock and Bolle, alas).

How annoying

Perhaps Margo is right. Am I insane? Margo is ALWAYS right. (click for larger image, by the way)

Perhaps Margo is right. Am I insane? Margo is ALWAYS right. (click for larger image, by the way)

I really hate it when things I’ve given up on get the axe. Apparently, and unless Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos or someone saves it, Apartment 3G is going to syndy comics heaven or something.

It’s really a shame no one cared enough to wrench it out of Bolle and Shulocks rot-inducing hands before they were allowed to run it into the ground. I’ve been begging someone like the new (well, not that new anymore) Dick Tracy team, or FOR GOD’S SAKE, THE new Dick Tracy team, to take the strip over, but my halfhearted wish was not granted. For me there’s still a world full of comics to mock and praise as the whim takes me (and time allows, alas).

But…

What will our charming, hilarious, and intrepid trio at Lovely Ladies of Apartment 3G do with their stinging wit now? Good thing there’s a presidential election coming up; we can all switch gears while we grieve for LuAnn, Tommi, and of course, the magnificent Margo-a-go-go.

Until then, I suppose there’s just:

Shock or Disbelief (Really? Fucking really?)
Denial (Nah, heh, pull the other one, y’bastards.)
Anger (FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!)
Bargaining (There are literally thousands and thousands of comics writers and artists who would literally kick ass on A3G. C’mon, Syndy, give’em a shot. What have you got to lose? Nothing really, and it will make literally dozens of people, and some comics bloggers, really happy.)
Guilt (I… I could have been nicer… maybe.)
Depression (Without Margo, Tommi and LuAnn, especially LuAnn, what’s the point of this blog? And, no, I have NEVER asked myself that before, thank you very much.)
Acceptance and Hope (Oh well, fuck, there’s always Mary Worth or something.)

I think I’ll just skip to forgetting all about it. Where is E Kubler-Ross when you really need her? Dead? Oh well.

And then, of course, there’s always the money thing.

If you don’t know where you’re going I can’t tell you where you are.

Cosmic! Simply cosmic!

Here’s someone else who doesn’t know where she’s going.

But it’s not even remotely cosmic. Feh.

Margo is so bossy, she must be an Aries. Maybe a Leo, but she’s not egotistically generous enough (Leos will borrow money to lend it to make themselves look good). And she’s not enough of a party girl to be a Sagittarius. So if she’s not an Aries, maybe a Capricorn or Scorpio, but I still vote for an Aries. Oh, and who doesn’t Margo’s mother’s psychic/astrologer, Diane Devine, remind you of? Artwork anyone?

Oh, yeah, Hanna? Good riddance, and live happily ever after.
