That's precisely why I like this one. It's him coming of age, first with the business and now with the stunning realization that his mom is old and that you can't ever go home again.

My hope is that this arc happens and then is forgotten, like all of the others. My fear is that Phillipe is changed forever.

He takes forever these days, but his stories are still just as effecting.

this arc is so well written, this one damn near made me cry.

EDIT

was the straw that broke the camels back. i had no idea onstad was capable of being this amazingly poignant.

i get how you feel pwib and i dont want phil changed either, but god damn it this arc is just so god damn well done. it makes me feel like phil is going to grow up to be the savior of humanity, learning stuff you don't learn till your 30 (or never learn at all for some folk) at 5. i feel like i dont have to worry about him, hes gonna be alright.

man i think this is the best arc in a long long time. it's not the funniest, but easily some of the best written.

The alt text helps it along, for once, as well. Like in the strip you just posted: He put on a cardigan and track pants and tried to say a goodbye that meant come back again.

yes it's all so beautifuly fleshed out and told so well. it's onstad being onstad but getting away from the humorous constraints that are expected of being onstad. I kind of feel like he wrote this arc for the people (like myself) who have maybe tired of the strip and kind of wandered off because they dont laugh as loud at the stuff like they used to. it's still written really well and you want to love it, but yeah

you can never go home again. but the memories are still there and thats what makes life so wonderful, is having lived the absurd joke it is.

*edit*
and I love the fathers of achewood. they are all men i wish i could have as a dad. they always leave me with that larger than life fatherly sense of awe.

ramses the hoss
simon the caring gentle soul
and phil's dad the reality check

i never really thought about how well written they are and how much i admire them. and it's mostly because they are shades of what i always hoped my father would be, and how disappointing my relationship with him is.

guess who has daddy issues :awesome:
