Good thing the valentines day cards don't come alive smother people before and after valentines day. Only on valentines day. Good the radio station has a bunker. It's a great place to be during all the crappy holidays.
Two things I love best about Carlos in this comic is A) his card has an anatomically correct heart on it (very fitting for Night Vale) and B) the look of ‘what the hell just happened he has in the last panel XD as an added bonus Carlos is totally rocking a sexy ponytail and it is glorious! Thank you for being fabulous SP!
Everyone seems to be saying poor Carlos, what about poor CECIL? He must be terrified right now that Carlos suddenly and inexplicably hates, no, DETESTS him so much that he would give him a VALENTINE, just like that. No reasons, no threats or really bad fights, just suddenly handing him a valentine as cool as paint.
come on the Abandoned Mine Shaft is not so bad they have king size beds, free WiFi and HBO. Not that the Sheriff's secret police are coming to take you there, but if they were you should not fight them.
It's part of the plot to be sure you don't try to escape the Abandoned Mineshaft between torture sessions, while you're dazed and confused. It captures your attention, and by the time you realize you should have tried to get out, it's time for the next session.
"Emergency workers report that the damage from Valentine’s Day is worse than previously projected. They describe bodies strewn upon the ground, covered in glitter and paper cupids. Entire buildings collapsed, leaving only rubble and chalky candy hearts. And of course, there is the sad fate of those chosen to be another person’s Valentine. Little can be said to help the families of those unfortunates except that the process is, while exactly as ghastly and excruciating as feared, apparently not as horribly slow and drawn-out as it appears to outside observers."
