Dialogue Free Comics Day

Bearman Cartoons - Dialogue Free Comics Day

May 13 is Dialogue Free Comics Day.  It was started last year by Noel Curry of DJBogtrotter.  I of course couldn’t wait.

Every year so many people work hard to get into shape for Marathon season.  Sadly, each year I hear reports of someone suffering a heart attack on the route.   So of course I had to think of it in terms of a pompous exercise freak that looks down on those not quite in shape.  

Don’t forget to support the charity challenge.

    HA! IF I had a nickel….

  3. writerdood says:

    I’m heading over to Loon’s Lard Shack today, and yes I want fries with that. Or maybe tatter tots.

  4. Bo Lumpkin says:

    He can save me a seat on the bench.

  5. MJ says:

    HA! Funny stuff!

  6. Gavin says:

    Ha ha – the health freak got what he deserved!

  7. Loon’s lard shack. Hehehe. Just trying to picture what the logo would look like. I scuttled my plans to run the 2011 Portland Marathon, BTW.

    Talk about carma. Love the toon. Save me a burger.

  9. Jason says:

    I was training for a marathon and hurt my back. Then I gained some weight because I couldn’t work out. I feel like both these guys.

  10. George says:

    Dang! I forgot all ab out Dialogue Free Comics day. My no-dialogue strip comes out tomorrow. I’m always a day late.

    I love this strip (yes, you’re finally drawing sequential art!). It gives hope for us guys who prefer KFC’s Double Downs to calisthenics. 😀

      No you are a day early. It is Friday. But I only post on Sunday/Wed (with my recap of charity challenge on friday) so you still have time to promote over there.

      Now I have a burger in his hand…no double downs. That would give you a heart attack just holding the bag.

  11. arrgh! I’ve just gotten back into running! That better not happen to me.

  12. G says:

    I always thought it was ironic that the guy who helped kick off the running craze wound up dropping dead of a heart attack while running.

  13. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Oops. I didn’t know about dialogue free comic day. I have one that will post with dialogue Friday. Am I in danger of being fined? Will the Webcomic police be beatin’ down my door to take me away? Do I need to go into hiding until this blows over?

  14. Tony McGurk says:

    Boy they buried him right there in the park where he dropped. Must be short on cemetery space. Looks like fatness wins out over fitness. Maybe the lard puts a protective fat layer around your heart.

  15. Too funny Bearman talk about irony.

  16. lisleman says:

    I was in great shape once – late 20’s – it didn’t last.
    I just don’t like the attitude that hey I’m a runner and everyone should be too. It would get a little crowded in some areas if the whole population started running. If you enjoy it, then ok just don’t push it on me.

  17. Duncanr says:

    Jeez, Bearman, I had to check the calendar on my Mac – for a moment there, you had me thinking I’d been using the wrong date today at work !

  18. Jillsy Girl says:

    Wouldn’t you know it..the one post you dedicate to someone, she doesn’t even show up! Kinda like the one I did a few days back where your name was mentioned, but then you were a no show.

  19. this reminds me i’m grossly out of shape.

    we’re already feeling crappy enough being it’s almost pool season. i don’t take kindly to this cartoon.

    it’s taken me approx 90 days to get through the 30 day shred.

  20. Friggin Loon says:

    A guy keeled a few weeks back where I do my exercise. No one noticed he was dead 🙁 They just thought he was resting. Hmm, yeah resting in peace!!!

  21. Sweet post that’s my lst choice.I like to read comic.

  22. Sweet Dialogue Free Comics Day here with a good opportunity.

  23. Everything is good for you and bad for you at the same time. That’s why I hesitate to ever give obnoxious health advice.

  24. Duncanr says:

    Franklin Jones knew what he was talking about –

    “The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize you’re not in shape for it, it’s too far to walk back”

  25. DadaHyena says:

    How popular was this guy if they put a bench right next to his grave? Man, he must have been a real dick if people just come by and relax to the sight of his tombstone!

  26. 25BAR says:

    I’d have thought other things. Perhaps.

  27. I think it is so sweet direction by these cartoons.
