The internet is a funny place. Every now and then something just pops up out of the blue, and even if it has been online for some time, its almost always new to someone.
Such is the case with Rebecca Sugar’s short comic, “Don’t Cry For Me, I’m Already Dead“, which popped up out of the blue on Cracked’s tumblr feed, with no more information outside of a note reading, “The saddest comic you’ll ever read about quoting The Simpsons.” Well, that’s certainly putting it lightly. Suffice it to say, this is something that had been online for some time, yet was very new to us — and was something we greatly wanted to share with you. Chalk this one up to a missed/hidden gem of 2011.
For those of you who don’t know the name Rebecca Sugar, you might know her work from Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, which she provides storyboards for and wrote the famous “Fry Song” by Marceline (which you should really know all the words to), as well as the graphic novel Pug Davis and animated short “Singles.”
There isn’t anything further that can be said about the comic without giving too much away, so simply click past the cut for the entire strip and start your New Comic Day with a little bit of melancholy. Kudos to Rebecca Sugar for finding an unusual way to make the Simpsons feel important again.
