Heathcliff has a lot of ways to get around town. And everyone in town seems perfectly fine with whichever mode of transport he chooses.

72f5a3c0e64c01300614001dd8b71c47Old people sure don’t like change. Or pygmy hippos roaming their already unsafe streets. Unsafe because Heathcliff roams them.

9bfa9240ebcc01300a94001dd8b71c47That’s nice. Does Heathcliff always take her out in a monster truck though?

291937c09ff80130cf54001dd8b71c47Oh, I guess he doesn’t. Clio (Heathcliff’s boo) has very selectively-concerned owners. They’re concerned that he brings back their cat, that he leaves before they’re sick of him and that he’s a gentleman. Yet, somehow, they’re entirely unconcerned about where he got that monster truck or hot air balloon.

bc0a2b105eb1012ee3bf00163e41dd5bDoes he ever let you know where the hell he gets these animals? Also, you should probably feed that elephant before shit gets real. Heathcliff’s tantrums are nothing compared to an elephant’s.

crhea130107Sure. Physics, ladies and gentlemen.

crhea130102Why does your cat have money to bet with in the first place? Also, you’re fine with letting your cat enslave Grandpa but not with money being bet? And what the hell were they betting on? Plus, he’s not even going anywhere, they’re just walking around the yard.

050b89c09a7801303975001dd8b71c47This makes no sense. That’ll show those dogs! Step on the signs that warn people that they’re there, so they can bite more people. Also, that’s weird that those people are concerned about the destroyed sign but not the sign destroyer, a damn elephant. Where the hell does he keep this elephant?

6f2b4ad0d9ba0130fc3c001dd8b71c47Who is that lady? I don’t think that’s Grandma. Does this woman just go around giving rides to cats in need?

1eb2db60e1fa013002e2001dd8b71c47How many animal-cars does Heathcliff have? Or is there some type of animal-share in the town of Westfinster, where people can check out various animals to ride. It’s certainly more environmentally friendly than, say, a monster truck.


Uninformed Citizens.

All the humans in Heathcliff explain the goings-on of Heathcliff like an enabling parent on Intervention explains why their adult child is allowed to do drugs and play Dance Dance Revolution in their basement instead of getting a job. Here, a politician explains why a pack of feral cats is protesting outside the capitol.


I don’t understand why neither politician just yells, “CATNIP IS LEGAL! YOU CAN BUY IT AT A PET STORE!” How is Heathcliff informed enough about the political process to protest but uniformed about the legality of catnip. Okay, you know what, I was briefly transported to the magical land of Westfinster and forgot how American politics actually are. Good grief.

Fun fact: there used to be a feral cat colony on Parliament Hill in Canada. It shut down in 2013. Perhaps, Westfinster is a Canadian town. Probably.


In August, one of my friends posted this Heathcliff comic on Facebook:


Soon after, I ended up exploring the GoComics Heathcliff archives and I haven’t really stopped. I never really got anti-comedy until I started reading Heathcliff. These comics are so unfunny and, very often, nonsensical that they crack me up. No, I don’t understand why. This blog is me finally listening to my friends and cataloging all the ridiculous Heathcliff comics I encounter. I’m do not own the copyright for these images, I’m just providing critical commentary on them. Crucial even. Maybe. It’s commentary or some sort.

Also: thanks to The Comics Curmudgeon for existing. Josh Fruhlinger’s site has been a frequent source of hilarious Heathcliff (and many, many other comics) commentary. Please read his site. So much hilarity.
