“Go ahead, make my day…” Oh, you did! You just did!
This is GREAT news!
Unless it’s an April Fools gag, and then it’s Yoikes and away! (smack!) Yoikes, and away! (Smack!) yoikes… and away.(SMACK!) yoikes… and… (ugh!)… away…
That great, the only change to me since you left is a crippling alcohol dependency and a utter lack of hope about the future. But other than that, everything is peachy keen!
And you seem to have lost some weight, too.
Welcome Omnipresent Man – You never really left!
And he can draw hands from panel one this time!
I did enjoy the Mon Wed Fri. I WfH those days. If I saw a Basic Instruction, I didn’t have to get dressed for work.
So this is great news! Unless it is an April Fool gag. I haven’t been reading long, but maybe he does this every April First.
But if it’s back, what day? Is it Friday? Or is this just for timing effect?
YES!! My favorite strip of the modern era is (hopefully? probably??) BACK!!
I’ve been reading the reruns of this strip for years. SO GLAD IT’S BACK! Thank you, Mr. Meyer.
He either lost weight or his head got bigger.
How we know he’s serious: he drew glasses.
Huzzah! Welcome back, we’ve kept your seat for you!
well, even if nothing else goes right, today was a good day.
Yay. Welcome back!
Scott’s wife hasn’t aged a bit in the 7 years. Smart move on his part.
I notice you haven’t said what day so we have to search every week.
Oh wait! That’s genius!
I remember the 2015 ending. Man, that was a fast 7 years.
I don’t feel like I’ve changed all that much since the strip’s original run.
The world, on the other hand….
I’m good with it as long as he doesn’t comically strip.
Even if it’s only an April Fool’s joke, nice to catch up with Scott for a few panels!
A new copyright date!!!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome back, Scott!
The answer to a prayer I never prayed! Seriously, if true, huzzahs and felicitations!
Famous cartoonist, hmmm… Bill Amend knows about going to once a week, Berkeley Breathed did too, Scott Adams introduced me to you before he went mad. Those are my picks. p.s. Glad to have you back.
I am (legitimately) so glad I never stopped following this on GoComics. I’d figured I would appreciate seeing the reruns even of strips I’d seen years before, but it’s especially good not to miss this.
Even in reruns, this strip often has me laughing out loud. Hope it’s not just April Fool’s!
So, Scott will be retracing his steps — and the rest of his bodies.
Bald with a tinge of gray is a timeless look. If not a little Walter White…
AWESOME WITH ALL THE SAUCE
I hesitate to draw everyone’s annoyance, but “…to only run once a week” means that he should do nothing but run one time a week. “To run only once a week” is probably what he was aiming for. However, with Scott, you never really know. (I’m glad there isn’t a “DISLIKE” button on Basic Instructions. Or is there?…)
Can we handle the font changes?
So glad to see the strip coming back, it’s my favorite. Unless you are just pranking us, in which case, touché!
Yay! But I also think you should re-run the old strips as Basic Instructions classics!
NGAHHH!It’s April 1st!Nicely done,Scott.My life is meaningless now.Again…
Yay, I’m so glad you’re back. I also enjoyed your novels. Will you be doing both?
The larger art is a blessing for these old eyes. Thank you Scott.
This makes my year! A post Covid positive!
Twice a week would be better. Tuesday and Friday. Later on I will have another suggestion. You’re welcome.
He can go with contact lenses
He should team up with Gary Larson and the guy who draws the penguin. They could create the cartoonist version of the “Expendables”.
Maybe he’ll run it like Doonesbury: repeats on weekdays and Saturday; fresh one on Sunday!
Best news I’ve had in days.
