First! My life is now complete.

There’s something very wrong with Preston being in prison. Still has me chuckling to myself.

Which makes me very wrong, too….

Arr smegg, beat me to the first post. Anyway, that was pretty good. Poor Preston, when he gets out of there Im sure Abe will get his ass kicked, Zeev & Boris too. And Jesus is a git, and the government too. Keep it up baby!

Oh Abe. Always getting in trouble, and blaming someone else for it.

The wall is there usually to separate the inmate from the visitor for not only safety but contraband.

The use of the phones also allows recording of the conversations

Does anyone know why prisons need to have the whole "talk on the phone with someone you’re sitting 2 feet from" setup when banks need presumably the same amount of security, yet have glass with openings that you can talk through? I assume they search both the inmate and the visitor before they get to talk so what do they think’s gonna happen? Maybe the phones have some sort of voice-warping on them for added punishment for the convict – you’ll never hear your mom’s real voice while you’re in here.

I believe that is what he was refering to.

LMAO!

Abe is dead meat when Preston gets out of jail. I loved the panel with the convo-on-paper to Jesus!

psychologically, it could be deemed more ‘safe’ with a phone involved.
so, more "free" to talk and if it is recorded, more information.

and then there’s the issue of visits in neighboring booths.
without the phones you’d get a lot of huh?’s and what’s?!’s
whenever one conversation overpowers another.

… figures two dudes from ny are quick to point out the whys and hows of prison invitation booths. :shock:

Shining, for the whole family.

I was actually startled when they did the reverse to Lady in the Water. First it’s a drama or somthign and then it turns into a horror film.

uhm, can’t Pres just walk around the table they’re sitting at? J/K, hehe.

seriously, it’s amazing all the sets and visuals that Bernie puts together for these strips. and i have to give kudos again for his photoshop mastery…

they need the phones because even with little holes in the glass, visitors/prisoners would still be able to slip contraband into the prison. they are quite inventive with ways to smuggle contraband into prisons. uhm…yeah we’ll leave it at that.

You crazy? Friggin’ Abe’s been suckered by those “Communists for Clinton” bastards, his brothers are obviously an allusion for the current situation in Iraq, and Preston had better get some o’ them flying stars in the air or he’s about to become a bit of, as the french say, the shits!

Great work as usual B, really enjoyed the stuff about Jesus and the note from Preston on the glass was sweet. Keep up the good work B.

You get to talk through glass over a phone because they do everything they can to make the visit uncomfortable for the visitors so they won’t come back very often. I’m not kidding. We actually had a prison guard who told us that yes, they were TOLD to be just barely civil to visitors. Apparently they don’t think it’s a very good punishment to be in prison if you still get to see your family once a week. They often have snack machines, but even if you have a ‘contact’ visit where you don’t have to visit through phones and glass (which is a non-contact visit) you STILL have to take any snack or drink you get the inmate to a guard first SO THEY CAN OPEN THEM for the inmate and they set them on the table in front of the inmate. Yes, apparently, after you go to prison, you’re too dumb to open your own bag of chips. Supposedly it’s safer with the glass (as far as contraband goes) because they don’t strip search visitors, and inmates have been known to make knives and everything else out of even dried bubble gum. Yes. Dried gum, pressed into a knife shape and filed down for an edge. Sorry if I ranted too much! I have an uncle in prison for a stupid reason and it irks me what they do to him. I know, it’s prison, it’s not SUPPOSED to be enjoyable. But holding a birthday card or letters for a whole month before they give them to the inmates???

AlienlovesPredator. Name says it all. Though a fight between Abe and Preston seems probable at some point.

A fight between those two seems very reasonable at this point…let them fight in prison so abe gets locked in as well :twisted: and then the story continues in jail..that would be good

Not a Stephen King fan.
I’ve seen parts of it but not enough for the reference.

Oh come on, really. You dont need to be a fan or have even heard of Stephen King to get the joke. Preston’s gone mad, so he’s writing stuff in big, red, backwards letters- like gibberish rantings. Ever seen that episode of the Simpsons where they spoof The Shinning…..

They did not fight when Abe cut off Preston’s hand with a chainsaw, so I hardly could see a fight happening over this.

But it would fit…. :lol: Poor Preston. I love the second panel. It’s fucking excellent. Best comic I’ve seen in a long time. :D Well done, Bernie! :mrgreen:

Oh man! i am so loving this story arc……. I know you probably dont use fans ideas, but what about preston being somebodies "prison B!tch"? cause you know, you’d never think a predator would have a problem in the penn, you could even put a lil pink head wrap on him, maybe some lipstick…… oh yea, thats hot
