Burning Down Something Beautiful

This might be the saddest thing I've ever drawn. When I started this comic strip in February, I envisioned the Palehose Six sailing into the Post Seas through a canyon raining confetti. That is not our fate.

Oh no, this is too sad! I'm in tears ... And last night I played the Opening Day video from the Cell, and I cried my eyes out watching it.

I just can't make any sense of this -- what happened?!?!?!?!?!?!

Well, at least you made me chuckle in the midst of this debacle.

The pirates are fat and rich with their '05 bounty. Hope we get some skinny and poor pirates for '07.

Well, I guess the Good Ship just wasn't seaworthy. Now, Cap'n Hand and the crew have a few months to build a bigger and better Palehose VII! (And I sincerely hope there WILL be a Palehose VII. Please, Please!)

Thank you for being the consistent bright spot this season. I look forward to christening the palehose 7.

It is sad to see the end of this season coming so soon. I hope that you continue to write these comics next year.

Thanks for everything this year, Carl. I never felt bad for long after a loss after I got through reading your strip on the game.

The voyage of the Palehose VII will be much more successful.

I am sad, sad,sad.

Thanx Carl, in a way you made this loss a teeny tiny bit less devastating.

Keep in mind that there will be three ships worse than the Palehose Six sailing into the Post Seas this trip!!!

Haul in the gangplank me hearties!

Carl..argh-lad, is that Jay Marriotti over there - or am I as mad as a salted herring?"

"Jay Ye Scalawag Son of a Biscuit Eater! I don't know as I recall askin' ye for yer thoughts, ye scurvy bilge-drinkin' tar-merchant. Avast yer gob afore I keelhaul ye an' string yer bones from the crow's nest." - I didn't ask for your opinion. Shut up or you'll regret it.

Arrrghh, Carl me lad that thar storm's been a brewin for a while...we're all shocked to the very boney...but you told a merry yarn...Weigh anchor! Hoist the mizzen for the Palehose VII!!

You were the indirect voice of reason this year. Thanks for a great year - all the work you did was reflected throughout the responses off your strips.

I, as others have said look forward to the Palehose VII. Go get 'em, Captain Hand.

Thanks for all the time you've spent on this comic strip. It's been a delight reading the strip and seeing how many others you entertained with it throughout the season.

Looking forward to more of your comics, no matter what the subject.

Carl, great strip this season and I hope to see one in 2007. Rongey and I made it a point to check it out during the postgame.
