Here we go, everyone: week 1 of daily comics. And yes, that is Mr. Mulligan. Enjoy.



  1. Whoo hoo! You just made my day.

    Thank you, Kari!

  2. Yay for daily comcis! We might finally learn something about Casey!

    However, I expected Casey to come back well groomed – not like this. Did he faint, or just stumble over something invisible?

  3. Yay! 🙂

    We should throw Casey a welcome home party, with vague references to mythology, strange deals and Canadian donut chains. Maybe chained Casey and real Casey could do a duet together.

  4. Dances with Fish: I had a strange moment the other day when I realised I had turned Tim Hortons into an otherworldly space. I’m genuinely unsure that has ever been done before.

    If we did throw Casey a party, there would have to be maple doughnuts on the menu.

  7. Is… is Casey wearing eye liner? Did he just come back from doing a rendition of Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time”?

    Comment by SunshineRain — September 20, 2011 @ 5:32 am

  8. SunshineRain: He has pronounced circles under his eyes.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 20, 2011 @ 5:43 am

  9. Are you sure? Cause he look just like this:

    Right down to the clothes and hair, well except Marie is wearing the fishnets instead, heh.

    Comment by SunshineRain — September 20, 2011 @ 5:54 am

  10. Well, Marie is wearing plaid pyjama pants, which are often mistaken for fishnets, of course.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 20, 2011 @ 12:29 pm

  11. yeahy looking forward to the next 2 weeks! will Marie hit casey?

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 20, 2011 @ 6:15 pm

  12. Yay! 😀 😀

    Comment by nuttycat — September 20, 2011 @ 9:02 pm

  13. So…he’s really back.

    Comment by mimi — September 21, 2011 @ 1:00 am

  14. Mimi: he really is. It’s not another Fake Casey Teaser; it’s the real deal. The Mulligan is back in the house (or, well, back on the floor of Marie’s apartment).

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 21, 2011 @ 1:08 am

  15. Rahim should remember to pause and use a stud finder before punching the wall, would not be fun to punch a wall stud.

    Comment by SunshineRain — September 21, 2011 @ 7:51 am

  16. I have a feeling that Rahim just might deck Casey after helping him……..anyone?

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 21, 2011 @ 1:53 pm

  17. Blackwolf3: I get the sense that you really want someone to hit Casey.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 21, 2011 @ 2:00 pm

  18. Hurrah for comics every day! Hurrah for the return of Casey! Hurrah for plaid pyjama pants!

    Comment by megan — September 21, 2011 @ 4:06 pm

  19. well with all the stress marie is been put through, and psych wards, the councling, the agaonizing headaches and head games she’s been put though, some one is going to hit Casey. either it be Rahim or Marie it’s going to happen some time

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 21, 2011 @ 4:21 pm

  20. oh yeah and the head trama of the fairy tale hallousination (forgive my spelling i go on how it sounds)

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 21, 2011 @ 4:22 pm

  21. He’ll probably just be pushed into the pool again 😉 I think both Marie and Rahim are too civilized for physical violence.

    Comment by fan — September 21, 2011 @ 6:40 pm

  22. Marie did once shove Casey violently over in the basement, taking advantage of his lack of balance due to his missing foot. Of course, he had just called her crazy. Silly Casey.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 21, 2011 @ 6:46 pm

  23. careful Rahim sissors are sharp, long day im getting snarky

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 22, 2011 @ 2:02 am

  24. Rahim has had a long day too. Thus the brusqueness.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 22, 2011 @ 2:05 am

  25. I wouldn’t worry too much, Rahim seem like a professional so he would probably bandage the wound up nicely if he does end up stabbing Casey. I mean if you are going to get stab, it might as well be a professional.

    Comment by SunshineRain — September 22, 2011 @ 5:07 am

  26. Yay for the daily comics! No more disappointment on going to the WoB homepage in the morning, only to remember that it’s a day without comic.

    I’m sure Rahim will first see that Casey is okay, then wait till he has gained strength – and then stab him, or challenge him to mortal combat or something. As a nurse, ha can’t attack him while he’s helpless. Anyway, even Rahim probably has some curiosity about what happened – so it would be stupid to stab Casey before he has been made to tell about it.

    Comment by nobilis — September 22, 2011 @ 9:17 am

  27. Since he’s a nurse, it amazes me that he doesn’t insist on the hospital for Casey.

    Comment by fan — September 22, 2011 @ 1:49 pm

  28. As a nurse, as well as someone familiar with how Casey works, Rahim is probably aware that there may be some reason Casey doesn’t want to go to the hospital; if he seems in no immediate danger, it’s probably better to deal with him privately and convince him to see a doctor later on than it is to try to wrestle a fully grown man who has been AWOL for a year into an ambulance he has no intention of entering. I’m not saying his choice is right, but there’s a certain logic behind it; he’s made a difficult decision between two unattractive options. I expect part of Marie’s reason for not insisting on an ambulance is that she’s afraid Casey will just vanish again if she calls 911.

  29. casey looks awful, wat did he do to himself

    Comment by blackwolf3 — September 22, 2011 @ 6:43 pm

  30. No facial hair growth, I notice…

    Comment by emily — September 23, 2011 @ 3:42 am

  31. Looks like I picked the right time to catch up with things 🙂

    Comment by Mer — September 23, 2011 @ 10:31 am

  32. You caved in, Mer? Welcome back to the mad world of WoB!

    Comment by Stefan — September 23, 2011 @ 12:15 pm

  33. Mwahahaha… Hum, hi Mer!

    Comment by Roeslein — September 23, 2011 @ 4:02 pm

  34. Come to meeeeeee, Piled Higher and Deeper fans. Cooooooommmmmmme tooooooo meeeeeeeee…

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 23, 2011 @ 4:34 pm

  35. Holy cow, 12 hour shift? Damn, Rahim is being really, really good about this. At least, I know I wouldn’t have gotten out of bed. But then again, I’m heavy enough that after 12 hours on my feet, and especially after having sat/lain down after 12 hours on my feet, getting up is just flat out not on the table. The pain is literally several times worse than kidney stones.

    I can spend a few hours on my feet just fine, it’s not like it’s a huge deal, but 12 hours…damn.

    Comment by erwaro — September 24, 2011 @ 3:01 am

  36. I did 12-hour shifts occasionally at the department store I used to work for, during their “price circus” days. It didn’t affect my feet or legs much. Then again, I was seriously underweight back then.

    Comment by Stefan — September 24, 2011 @ 3:11 am

  37. More to the point: this sounds like the perfect moment for Marie to return…

    I wonder if we get a color comic on Sunday.

    Comment by Stefan — September 24, 2011 @ 3:13 am

  38. There will, indeed, be a colour comic on Sunday.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 24, 2011 @ 3:20 am

  39. 12 hour shifts are the norm, I think. Nursing is a tough profession.

    Comment by emily — September 24, 2011 @ 3:43 am

  40. Yep, it’s pretty common in nursing. I can see how it might make Rahim a teeny bit grumpy.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 24, 2011 @ 3:47 am

  41. Couldn’t Rahim keep some of the hair? I quite liked Casey with longer hair…

    Comment by Roeslein — September 24, 2011 @ 6:57 am

  42. Are we going to get some satellite debris in WoB?

    Comment by nobilis — September 24, 2011 @ 8:47 am

  43. I absolutely love the way Marie looks in the second to last panel!

    Is that the fifth or sixth panel, by the way?

    Comment by Stefan — September 25, 2011 @ 4:29 am

  44. Stefan: I guess it depends on whether you count the title panel as a panel. I would call the second-last panel the fifth panel, but that’s just me. Geez, comics are confusing.

    I’m glad you like Marie’s withering glare of death.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 25, 2011 @ 4:33 am

  45. Oooh a sequenced colour comic, have we had one of those before? I get the feeling that we had but I don’t remember when, then again this whole day has been a big déjà vu.

    Comment by SunshineRain — September 25, 2011 @ 9:10 am

  46. Yes, there are occasionally in-sequence colour comics, usually when the storyline has become rather exciting, and cutting away to deal with other characters wouldn’t really make any sense. The ones I remember off the top of my head are: Marie’s trip to the hospital after being hit in the face with a door; Marie, Not-Casey, and Evil Marie breaking the fourth wall in the enchanted brain forest this summer.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — September 25, 2011 @ 12:28 pm

  47. Thanks Stefan and Roeslein and yep I caved – but I handed in a draft first. At least I survived that long.
