As hard as it may be to believe given the years and years of torture I’ve put the poor possum through, for much of the first year of my comic Buster got by reasonably unscathed…. usually just appearing as a background character or for some weird gag. This early strip marked one of Buster’s first of what would become many unfortunate demises…
This was Comic #40…

Poor Buster. Squashed again and again and again. I feel very bad for him. I do, really. Because everyone should be allowed to text while driving.
Ditto. My exact thoughts re: Buster.
Buster appreciates those who support him, and extends the offer to sign his full body cast.
✍🏻 I’m ready.
Well, everyone feels free to text and drive regardless of how many possums (or pedestrians) pay the price for their impatience…
That is one sassy little skunkbitch! I hope they can prosecute her for vehicular possomicide. Although, jails would fill up pretty quickly after rainy nights if that were a prosecutable offense and I would have to worry about the statute of limitations on vehicular crowicide. I wasn’t texting when it flew out in front of me, I swear!
For me it would be a case of bunnycide … and I did not text, because I did not even have a mobile back then!
Oh no, a bunny! That must have been awful! 😦
Believe mit, it was, I was not a happy bunny myself that morning. But those were wild ones (not hares, hares are bigger) and they sometimes venture on the road to quick to evade them.
I don’t even text, and I have come very close to squishing two Busters…. and one extremely lucky squirrel who somehow missed my tires. Oh, and I even had a lucky butterfly who got caught in one of my windshield wipers for two miles down the highway… yet managed to fly away at the first stoplight!
I agree… I think a silent witness is no witness… and maybe the judge will fine that guy for denial of evidence?
LOL! To hold Buster’s dead body in contempt of court would be hilarious…
You can tell it’s the first of Buster’s demises just by the fact that somebody actually noticed…
And that somebody actually cared…
Buster’s been run over and mangled so many times I’m sure he’s got a closet full of fur coats with tread marks on them……speaking of which, Skunkbitch shoulda asked for a tread mark comparison from the cop for PROOF it was SHE who did the possumsquish and not some other distracted driver!
I’m sure Buster will make a lovely piece of evidence in the courtroom. The poor jury who will have to examine those treadmarks….
I hope they put him on a tarp so he doesn’t mess up the floor…………..
I just saw a real one smooshed on the road. Gross, but I still felt bad because I’m a big silly nanny.
There’s a road I travel a couple times a week that rolls through a mostly rural area, and is often a veritable roadkill buffet until the county truck (or some restaurant) finally comes by to scoop it all up…
I heard that braised run over rabbits are a delicacy.
Your follow count is 1 “666.” Ironic.
Ah, so now we know where it all began!!!
