Yeah, we kinda had a general dummcomics thread, but now 1930 theater shall have one of its own.

It was hilarious even at its darkest, which was most of the time.

Now, the creator is dead and there won't be any more.

Since half the comics were about his suicidal depression and he put the comic on a hiatus to "sort things out" in his real life, we can guess what happened.

That's unfortunate, this webcomic is great.

Thanks. It worked for me the first time I posted it, oddly enough...

I want to be all HOW COULD LIFE NOT BE WORTH LIVING WHEN YOU HAVE A COMIC PEOPLE THINK IS FUNNY but then I remember how mine doesn't make me feel even remotely like less of a loser, I just don't get that sad about being a loser.

Fixing again:


For some reason, it doesn't work unless you add "-archive" after "comics."

Even after all this time, my favorite has to be



(And now my link doesn't work unless I keep it free of the -archive suffix . . . weird)

seriously deserves its own thread because inappropriate here. Inappropriately amazing, but still

That is so beautiful.

I would post another one of these, but the fact that most of them aren't even appearing makes it pretty much pointless. What I can do, however..

I think it's important to point out that the cause of death is unconfirmed at the time of this post.

While I'm not a fan of cynical humour at all, for reasons I won't get into here out of respect, Ricky Garduno did indeed have a wonderful art style that was very fluid and captured a wide range of emotions in very few panels. He also had the very rare talent of being able to compress complex social and moral issues into tiny bits of satire that were accessible to any audience, a feat which often comes across as patronizing in the work of lesser satirists. Even with my own prejudice against cynical humour, I must admit to finding his work funny and, at times, downright endearing.

He was a great talent, and he will definitely be missed.

I attempted suicide recently.

It didn't work out.


I sure wasn't expecting to see it had for a cartoonist I'd followed so long.
