The Face of Hate

I've been getting an unusual amount of hate mail lately. I consider that a good sign for the most part, but I still have to wonder, who are these people? What do they look like? Who has the time to seek out the email address of a cartoonist, just to harangue him? One person in particular has sent me a few emails expressing how much he despises F Minus.

"You aren't funny...at all."
"All of the other comic strips are hilarious, then yours just wrecks it. Completely."
"I feel like closing the paper after reading your pathetic excuse of a comic."

His extraordinary anger over my little comic strip intrigued me. I decided to to a quick search for his email address and I discovered his Facebook profile.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... The Face of Hate.
Through his profile I learned that he has managed to wrangle himself seventeen online "friends" despite his abrasive disposition.
But I shouldn't be too hard on him. He clearly leads a difficult life, apparently in the frozen tundra, where he was forced to kill a large rodent and fashion the pelt into a crude hat for warmth.
I don't think I will continue to seek out these hate-mail writers after this experience. My dreams are already haunted by those vacant eyes and pointed snout. I've learned my lesson.

UPDATE: It turns out one of the "17 friends" is the cousin of a friend of mine, and had this to say about the hater:

"I barely know the kid. He was in my speech class and hung around the emo/goth/kids-who-wear-black group. All of his speeches were on random, less-important wars or something... like Franco-Prussian or ones that you don't normally hear about. He was also very nervous up there. I read the blog... am I really only one of his 17 friends?"

Sounds like he's down to sixteen, I'm afraid.

I've been getting a lot of requests for a T-Shirt with the slogan from this comic, and I wanted to let you all know that I'm in the process of making one available now. I'm also going to try to overhaul the outdated F Minus store. More on this as events unfold.

Let me know if there are any other F Minus comics you think would make a good shirt.

1500!!!...or so.

Comic counting is not an exact science, but today's comic might be the 1500th published F Minus comic. However, if you include comics from the college years and comics that weren't published nationally it's closer to 1800... whatever. My birthday isn't for five more months, so let's celebrate.

Thanks to Theo for the heads up.
