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).

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 2 of 6

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 4 days of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 2: Really? They’re wasting time on a wedding no one sane cares about? Really? Oh, ignoble death, blah blah blah.

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.

Can this marriage be saved?

First, Ian invites his new boss over for dinner on the spur of the moment. And this new boss guy is a peach; as we know, a gentleman never accepts an invitation that is offered less than three days in advance for reasons we shall see below. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150730

Then, Ian springs this mess on Toby, who is not happy. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150801

Toby has her own thing going on. Can this marriage be saved? Maybe.
MW20150804

Ian is all “I I I ME ME ME” and Toby has her own thing going on, whatever it is. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150805

Toby is serving take-out to jerk boss. Who cares if this marriage can be saved?
MW20150811

Toby is too busy to sleep with Ian. Can this marriage be saved? Maybe.
MW20150818

And now Ian can’t/won’t/doesn’t go to Toby’s show that is SO IMPORTANT to her. Can this marriage be saved? Saved, people? It’s DOOOMED!
MW20150821

Where the hell is Mary Worth when people actually need her? And why didn’t Toby send up a surprise dinner guest SOS and invite Mary to take up the table talk slack? Mary would have at least brought some homemade beige food and a bottle of wine. Say what you will about my Mary, but she has great manners.
