The Dangers of Generosity by AK-Is-Harmless The Dangers of Generosity by AK-Is-Harmless
Finally, a comic with full color! :D

I pulled this script out of a file marked “Ben and Winslow Ideas.” I wrote it months ago, but only recently had a chance to draw it. I love sugar, so I can imagine someone treating it as if it were some king of drug. Either that, or this guy really does use brilliant metaphor.

The curse words are censored not because I have a problem with curse words, but because I never print the heavier ones unless they’re absolutely crucial to the joke. A lot of time they aren’t. In visual media like this, a printed curse word can be really distracting.

This first appeared on Defenestration [link] on Friday, July 8th.

and winslow's in the backgroung with a donut hanging from his mouth\shoving a rectangular donut in his mouth like some hooker and a banana. the best part about it is he looks so adorable while doing it.

You're right. I didn't even realize how suggestive that would look to that guy. :)

There used to be a bum that came around the tattoo parlor I worked for. We tried to help him out as much as we could, giving him spare change and whatnot. One day, one the guys gave him a sandwich, and the guy looked at it and asked us: "How the fuck am I supposed to get drunk with this shit?!", and continued by throwing the sandwich on the sidewalk and walking away cursing at us.

This strip reminded me of that.
