A is for Amy who fell down the stairs...all hail Edward Gorey!

Rich, this was awesome! Thanks for the Gorey-est strip to date, and the sly nod to Mistery!

Dude, you rock.

Yes! I remember my dad watching Mystery when I was a kid, I always loved that intro sequence.

I agree, BK that was beautifully done. You caught Gorey's style perfectly. Also, that was a great, if painful, pun as well. :) :clap:
