Fans of the toe nail guy may be sad to see him go. But I had to replace the two dudes because they were low resolution and in black and white. And that did not go well with printing. So we have 2 new dudes, and one of them, while not exactly pulling the toenails is still fiddling with it. Which after all, is the main thing.

The story of the old and new dudes needs telling. I am working on a Fly You Fools blog and soon the story will be told.

Meanwhile, expect a new comic featuring the new dudes tomorrow. If you have something to say in the memory of the toe nail guy, let it all out in the comments.

BTW, here’s the last official toe-nail guy comic.

    This is awful! No more nail pulling guy! I will never love the new ones so much – even if they have a friggin’ Mickey Mouse background! *sob*

    The toe nail pulling guy will be missed. But not so much, if you get a nose-picking guy!!

    @rohan: It’s OK. He’s in Toe Nail Pulling heaven now. And that’s a place where the nail pulling fun never stops.

    @eesha: I’m sure the new dudes can continue that great tradition.

    @varun: Bubu will never die.

    @simply: A great idea. Would be great if you could send a few photos I can use… Ran out of nose picking photos here… :)

    Oh you heartless man! You fired them in this period of recession. What will the toe nail pulling guy now do for a living?

    And please, please don’t get rid of Bubu.

    Ah! You’re not reading the comic!! It’s the toe nail guy only. He had plastic surgery and better set design. That’s all..

    WTF!! I loved the toe nail pulling guy. He immortalized the lines “You know what sickens me?”. That line was a sure shot way of knowing that I am going to love the comic.

    Ever since i subscribed to your feed, this is the first update. I feel like crashing into a movie after a round of booze, with no understanding of what has happened till yet, and a very confusing plot in the making, like catching up on an insect while it’s moulting.

    Toe-Nail Pulling Heaven, eh?

    Does that mean he gets an upgrade?? Like leg-pulling, now?? :D

    I will miss the frustration of old nail pulling guy’s face, new guy does not look so pissed :-(

    The new guy ain’t even doing it right–he’s playing with his sole and stuff rather than peeling of his toe-nail.

    Bloody amateur.

    Btw, where is this background from?

    Ah, so finally someone notices to new sets.. It’s Diwan-e-Khaas from Delhi Red Fort. :P

    The dudes are ASI employees hired to hound the tourists to stay the fuck away from the same area where they’re sitting and killing time on taxpayer’s expense.

    As for the correct toe nail pulling.. well, yes :(

    the original nail puller even had that perfect expression – y’know like “it’ll get better if u GO ON PICKING AT IT…” or “Eureka! ickle bit of toe-nail crap will be dislodged by a nanometer!”

    but still lets see wht comes up with the new guys.

    But the toenail-pulling-guy was so awesome!
    and so was the guy with him!
    their expressions, low resolutions and black-and-whiteness were what made it funny.

    these new guys are just not as…interested…in it

    oh well

    at least we have historically significant backgrounds now

    that’s always a plus.

    [good one btw]

    I loved the nail pulling guy. Why would you take him away? Why would you do that? why? why?

    Good Morning. I have just read through the Christianity Magazine for October 2012 and ntcioed your advertisement on page 28. I have looked at the preview of Journey out of Darkness’ magazine, and like what I see. I am a minister in the Church of Scotland at Polmont near Falkirk (website Polmont Old’). I run an after school club for the local Primary School children and usually have around 40 kids attending each week. The Club is basically Sunday School’ on Tuesday afternoons with stories, drama, games and craft work all on biblical themes and ideas. I think that the magazine would be a great present to give them. Your advert indicates that they are available for free. Would it be possible to ask for 40 of these and can I at least pay for the transport costs? I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Jerome
