This was supposed to go up last week with the others. Is this Brad-love week or what?

Brad and I joke about a lot of things, suicide isn’t one of those things. Which was what happened to Brad’s older brother after their mom left. It’s just one of those things we don’t talk about a lot.

Man. These comics took… a while. But then again they were pretty long in my sketchbook so maybe the subsequent will be faster? I’m just gonna try updating once a week while I’m still busy.

Man. I was sure I had a lot to say but I’m just really fucking tired.

This is just...

My heart shattered to a bazillion pieces, then got ran over by a bulldozer. I feel your (and Brad's) pain brah.

i can't quite blame her for not going, nothing makes you feel betrayed quite like having somebody commit suicide on you.


MilkChii April 19th, 2012, 3:20 am

That is just... man... that is very hard to go through. It is amazing how happy and positive Brad still is.

i so freaking want to hug brad D:

that is just... seems to be really hard u-u

@Enokitake: Hahaha, that's pretty harsh. I'm sorry about that.

@Helix_luco: I understand what you're saying but I refuse to let Brad's mother slide. Haha. Ok, that's pretty terrible of me but man, just with her, I don't like.

She left Brad and his brother while he was still in elementary school and I'm guessing Brad just needed someone.

man, just when i start thinking the evil mom in my comic is beginning to look unrealistic, real life comes and shows me something worse. i keep forgetting truth is stranger than fiction.

give my thanks to brad for having the courage to share this.

Um this is totally weird for me to do haha. Well i guess I'll just get to it.
I just read the comic about Brad and his family issues with the hint of suicide (I did not mean for that to sound like a recipe haha). I wanted to say that when those feelings of dark despair come up you need to just push past them and to keep on living. Even giving that advice makes it seem bland and like the usual everyday advice on this matter. Yet it has a lot of meaning to it. On those days that seem so bleak it's better to talk about it with someone. Take it from me keeping those feelings inside is like a flesh eating bacteria that eventually consumes you until you find help to get rid of it. Something as simple as talking helps relieve that pain.
I suppose why i feel so strongly about this is because I've been through it. I'm 19 and I have Depression and a couple of years ago I even attempted suicide because of all the feelings i kept in. I'll spare you my life's story but i understand what it feels like for your family not being there for you. I also understand if Brad hates them somewhat, but I'm glad he has you and your family.
Okay enough with that sappy stuff hahaha. I really love your comic! I'm such a die hard romantic that i even hate the fact that I am! From all the unfulfilled feelings it leaves, it's so not worth it sometimes. So i love to read this comic and read about people like you. It's so refreshing! I'm also curious why everybody thinks if you were to have a relationship with someone they automatically think you'd be gay (I mean i know About the whole Doug thing but still...). I wanted to put this on your tumblr page but as you can see it's a bit long hahaha. Um, so yeah BYE (^.^)


daviddoesntgetit April 24th, 2012, 11:05 pm

@mikemacdee: Brad: Awwww, that's very sweet of you. It's embarrassing more than anything, haha.

@sam111: It seems like with Brad his brother committing suicide was probably what stopped him the most.

Anyways, what you wrote was really impressive. There's really a lot to think about in what you wrote.

Hey, I'm glad you like the comic, especially with your comment. I really did enjoy reading it.

Hahahahaha, I have no idea why anyone thinks any relationship I'd hypothetically have would be gay. I dated Stacy, does that count for nothing? Haha. Well, I don't mind. It's probably what I get for hanging around with a bunch of fujoshis.

I see, thanks for this. I really enjoyed reading it.

Brad: Thank you, sam111.

oh, man. I've held off reading these because I've been so busy with work and I was still totally stressed out.. but this helped. out with just stress and in with some proper feelings!! so just.. thanks. thanks for sharing :)

I'm a really empathic person. I don't mean that as a boast, I just mean that I cry for other people almost daily.

Reading your comic-diary has raised a huge amount of emotions in me but this page was the first one to make me really cry. Just seeing how close the two of you are makes my chest hurt. It's truly beautifull.

It feels weird knowing so much about you. I feel so close to you, brad and your siblings... You'd hate me in real life though, since I'm an obsessive hugger :)

Thank you (and everyone else) for sharing all of this. There are no words for how much more powerfull this is compared to any made up comics with their over-the-top fancy art.


daviddoesntgetit June 18th, 2012, 10:30 pm

@Legerdimain: Wow, being empathic sounds really tiring, haha. I can't imagine crying every day but that's pretty impressive.

I'm glad you're enjoying the comic that much, I'm really happy to hear that. And, haha, I'm sorry hugs aren't my thing.

Ah, well, all comics are trying to accomplish different things. Even so, I''m glad you've enjoyed it.

I can't really say anything that has already been interpreted here. I guess you really can't understand unless you know what pain feels like to you. I'm really envious of you and Brad. Really envious.
