There's a particular atmosphere to the action > thoughtful downtime > action progression that I really enjoy (writing and reading), and I think this captures that so well! Awesome.

The new Copper is exceptionally boss. It isn't caustic, but it isn't boring either, and it manages to be wonderfully unique while being familiar to everyone at the same time. Kazu, I'm probably not saying anything new to you, but Copper is one of those stories that works perfectly well with its medium. I can't picture it getting any better than the comic it is now.

Of course, I could be proven wrong...


PS: Jumping off of stuff to get to work is now officially the new biking to work. It's healthier AND more life-threatening! (Of course, you know that there are probably going to be some bored suburban kids who will try to make it even more dangerous, for thrills. And then maybe turn it into a sport. Extreme Jumping Off Of Stuff.)

Warning: The drop to the next AirTrans platform may take longer than you'd planned for. Feelings of terror and vertigo are to be expected.

(But if you don't jump, you won't get anywhere).

OK, I won't ruin it by asking stupidly logical questions like if they're always jumping down, how do they ever get up again?

I'm sure this strip represents some very profound aspect of human nature which I'll probably figure out sometime during the next decade or so, but in the meantime I'll just add my voice to the general chorus of approval and leave it at that.

Feathers. Heh. Good one.

Copper should be an animated cartoon on Cartoon Network. Then you could make millions of dollars merchandising cool vinyl toys and I would buy one.

I like the fact that the businessmen with briefcases do not feel the need for parachutes.

Copper toys would be the thought provoking, metaphorical equivalent to a Mighty Max playset, lol.
