    The Trinity of Jerome Klein – EXPOSED!!! lawls

    Heck. Brock, you’re not the only one who enjoys messing with people’s heads. Back when I was a kid (young adult? Whenever), mixed up in a bunch of stuff I shouldn’t have been, before I accepted Christ as Savior, I got a Chinese Fortune cookie once that read, “Your sins will find you out.” I jumped and got scared because I thought it was a message delivered to me by God, lol. Well, who knows. I’ve had far more miraculous things happen to me since accepting Christ that definitely were God, so who knows. Maybe God also has a sense of humor like you, Brock. A sick, twisted sense of humor!! Ha ha ha… No, I honestly deserved it. And although God has been working in my life, the fortune cookie was probably a joke from the fortune cookie company (although I do believe it was more than that, especially since I that day had just done something certain I could hide and was quite pleased with myself). Like you said, it’d be hilarious to run up to people and say, “I KNOW WHAT YOU DID!!!” and run away. Why not contain the message in a massed produced fortune cookie?

      Will, that is flat out the most evil fortune cookie I’ve ever heard of. Who approved that? But, I’m glad there was such a strong upside for you. That’s fantastic.

      • CartoonistWill

        Thanks, Brock! Yeah, I never thought of it much until now, but I think it was a good influence. I didn’t really believe my sins would find me out at that point in life and didn’t really have any concept that I had sinned against a righteous God. My only concept of God were assumptions or pop culture (that He either wasn’t really interested in my life or was an angry old man that wanted to bop me). I had heard that Jesus died for me but why He had to die for me I had not yet ever considered. I guess the fortune cookie may have been one of many influences leading up to to my turning point. Maybe it somehow added to a growing realization that what I was doing was wrong, making me a sinner, and what being that exactly meant? Anywho… Back to Superfogeys. :-)

        In other news, of all the times I have ever read fortune cookies, that particular fortune has never again popped up. Maybe there’s a website out there that lists all fortunes and what companies produced them?

        • Puck

          I don’t know if I’d attribute any religious intervention to it, but the only time I’ve been unnerved by a fortune cookie was when I got one with two fortunes…. That were both blank.

          That was really creepy. >>

    I love the look on Harvey’s face in the last panel.

    • Brock Heasley

      Marc draws a GREAT Harvey.

  6. Alex

    I have a feeling Tom will have getting a lot of company very soon!

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      Ha! Now that would be funny.

    This day is slowly becoming catastrophic.

  8. Sam

    The Thrice Evil looks like a little kid even though he is old, he even looks a bit sorry for Jerry in the last panel.

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      Yeah, I love Thrice as the old, mute kid. Marc pulls that off well. The Fogeys are drawn generally younger than they really are for a very specific reason.

    • Tyler Heasley

      Thrice seems kind of helpless, maybe sad. But I don’t think he’s sad for Jerry. Maybe his mind is in a constant state of torture or something.

    • Lewis

      I always assumed it was down to the vitality, power and presence of a superhero/villain. The ones who looked the oldest were always Star and Thrice in their addled state, the minute they become themselves they look younger and more alive than before.

      I also agree on the torture, after all Thrice collapsed at the funeral when he tried to reveal the Third Man/Klein connection so it can’t exactly be comfortable to be around people discussing it and forcing him to think on it himself.

    Looks like everything is on that downward spiral now…for jerry’s sake he better hope the captain isn’t using his in visibility powers to follow him or things are gonna get bowling shoe ugly REAL quick!!!

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      “bowling shoe ugly…” ha!

  10. JE Draft

    Dr. Rocket is much smarter than Jerry is, and has a lot more practice at this sort of thing. I’m wondering if the reason he has Thrice Evill along is because he’s figured out/stolen a way to break Jerry’s mental control over him.

    “Tails of Lizard, Ears of Swine, Chicken Gizzards soaked in brine, now thine eyes and mine entwine, thy will is broken, thou art MINE!”


    “I’ll KILL –”



    hehehe …

      What is that from, JE? I feel like I should know it, but I’m terrible with quotes.

      • JE Draft

        “The Court Jester,” Danny Kaye.

    Villainous take over?

    It kinda bugs me that Dr. Rocket uses ‘Third Man card’, because Jerry knew that Dr. Rocket knew that Dr. Klein and Third Man are the same as it wasn’t secret between them. Sort of tatuology, which is of course justified because Dr. Rocket is messing with Jerry. But it kinda bugs me still, perhaps because it’s not new information?

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      I hear that, Civa. But you’re right, it’s not a reveal so much as he’s messin’ with Jerry. He’s reminding him that if he knows the one thing, then he knows everything.

  12. Kayjay

    I am definitely going to try that now… right after I walk up to a random kid on a playground, grab her by the shoulders and scream “I’m you! FROM THE FUTURE!”. I might get arrested for that one though…

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      Haha! If I ever get a Groundhog Day, I’m totally doing that. Over and over again.

  13. Scott

    What’s funny is that I would expect that having pulled the multiple identity thing off for so long that Jerry wouldn’t even flinch at someone saying “Dr. Klein?” while he’s around.

    I’d also think Dr. Rocket would be more really impressed at what Jerry was able to pull off. That’s not to say he’s isn’t impressed but I’m pretty sure Dr. Rocket’s more irritated at being pulled away from his retirement.

    Meantime… sheesh I figured there’d be an alien invasion by now.

    • WGC

      Jerry probably recognized the voice and realized there was another snag in his post-plan honeymoon paradise.

      • Lewis

        He’s also probably still rattled from Future Swifty’s attack.

  14. Valareos

    Just whatever you do, dont open that door behind jerry! Im scared of what might be in there… :P Arachno-Phobia? Yes? No? ok ill be quiet now :P

  15. Baughbe

    Ironic, the web of deceit is begin to unravel in front of Arachno’s door…

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      OH, SNAP. That’s good. Wish I could say I thought of that!

      • CartoonistWill

        Wow. I actually thought you and Marc did that on purpose. lol

  16. Valareos

    Off topic Brock… If you have any control of your ads, can you look for one with a URL of www25.photoschedule.uni.me and block it? it redirects to one of those “security scan” scareware sites. Rather not come to this page then be auto redirected somewhere else when I want to read the comic :D

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      I don’t really have a lot of control, but I’m gonna look into this. That’s not good. Thanks for the heads up!
