Seasonal Conspiracy

So was the leprechaun REAL? Or was the whole thing a delusion brought on by lack of sleep? The fun thing about this storyline is that it's up to the reader to decide.

Creator Commentary: This is a nice discussion that serves as an epilogue to the leprechaun story. Dialogue scenes like this is another recurring device that I employ in the Roofus strip. These scenes give the reader insight into who these characters are and how they interact with each other. I think a good epilogue should bring closure to the storyline, not only for the characters but the audience as well. Having said that, this one's pretty weak.


  1. I can't believe I never thought to ask this before, but what is Roofus' GPA?

  2. Here's the deal. Marty is the slacker, so his GPA would be less than average, but not quite failing. He scrapes by. Roofus studies hard and goes to class, but I would consider him to be slightly above average (a B student). Despite his best efforts, he never quite succeeds at being an excellent student. I do this for two reasons. A: It's fun to see Roofus occasionally flunk his exams. B: It reenforces the the theme of not fitting in. Roofus is a square peg in a round hole. He's a dog trying to be a college student.
