Attack of the 50ft Kitten – Today’s strip is a little meta, a bit philosophical I guess. I thought I’d share the real meaning behind it here in the blog. The bird in this comic is based on my pet budgie who died a few weeks ago. This comic often walks the line between absolute auto-bio and complete fantasy farce. In this case Brad Bird will live on forever in the permanent stasis of the comic strip. RIP Rafiki, You lived like a champ.
