Despite Randall being enthusiastic about receiving ink pens, he experimented them in a contrastingly depressing comic the subject matter dealing with how the uncertainty of time can bring elements that can cause a relationship to fall apart, a feeling made concrete when even the comic itself fall apart, representing their 'world falling apart' when their relationship does... Even the people's attempts to rescue the relationship end up in ruins, leading to the ruins of the individual and in one case isolation.


[Various people struggle as the comic disintegrates. Toward the top, people are standing calmly, some holding hands. As the parts of the comic break apart, people try to reach for each other, hold parts together, or curl up into a ball. By the bottom, a person is falling, surrounded by pieces of the comic.]

Randall must have been eaten some mushrooms right before doing this one.--Dgbrt (talk) 21:53, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Or perhaps he was drawing some thick, inky lines and realized that they looked like cracks, and he then extended the synecdoche. 18:21, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Anyone else see a resemblance to the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? In particular the one figure crouching on the left over a falling woman looks like Indy and Elsa. ~~ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
