They're back, pistols reloaded, in all their smudged and deadpan glory! Pete, aggressively passive and always ready to embrace a new fanaticism. Shirley, his beloved wife, except when she's trying to poison him. Steve, his best friend, except when he's shooting him. Loretta, his best stalker. And Steve's Dad, who is very wrinkly and owns many grenades.
Pete, a not so loveable loser always ready to become a fanatic for any cause, craves the respect of his coolly abusive best friend Steve. His wife, Shirley, pursues Steve while half-heartedly plotting Pete’s demise. Her best friend, Loretta, signals her unrequited love for Pete by sending him severed raccoon heads. Eventually Steve’s Dad shows up, fresh out of prison. All of them are heavily armed.
Finally appearing in print after providing years of appalling hilarity to readers of writer and game designer Robin D. Laws’ blog, The Birds is a deadpan, minimalist missile aimed straight at the heart of the avian condition.
The second collection of the comic strip with a foreword from Jonathan Tweet and guest strips from John Kovalic.
