a runner descends stairs painfully in an office building with a broken elevator

#105 "The Next Day"

I wanted to draw a strip that used a bunch of traditional comic sound effects. When looking at a list, I realized they would make a good after-the-marathon genre comic. Walking down the stairs is by far the most painful of normal activities for me after running 26.2 miles. This is also called delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which is not very delayed after a marathon, as it starts around mile 23. This comic is an homage to the good pain of achievement in athletics. If you just finished a marathon, congratulations! I hope you enjoy the short-term suffering you inflicted on yourself. I enjoy it every single time. Mine and yours. :)
