  1. Dear Hans, if you’re reading this: Your lawyer sucks almost as bad as ReiserFS: No corpus delicti, the crime shouldn’t have even gone to trial.

    Ask him about appealing the crime. Also some states have statutes/laws regarding “impassioned juries” which is what looks like skanked ya.

  2. From the Wikipedia article on corpus delicti:

    Evidence in the case of British serial killer John George Haigh indicated that he decided to destroy the bodies of his victims with acid because he had the mistaken belief that, in the absence of a corpse, murder could not be proven because there was no corpus delicti. Haigh had misinterpreted the Latin word corpus as a literal body rather than a figurative one.

    While I’m posting, I’d like to add my voice to the multitude asking for an update to the marquee message. I’m not sure if the cartoon is in better or worse taste now that Hans has been convicted, but the marquee is certainly tasteless.

  3. anyone who complains about this is a pussy who doesn’t deserve an opinion. learn to laugh, and whatever happens to han’s happens. this comic will not destroy the world.

  4. Never assume anything, guilt or innocence. Those of you who were in the HR cheerleading section: perhaps your expressions of sympathy should have been extended to the children whose mother was first missing and is now dead. Too bad they can’t fry your worthless ass Hans.

  5. I was never in the HR cheerleading section, but, honestly, the story he told about Nina hiding out in Russia etc etc is a lot less dreadful and more hopeful than the truth, as it turns out.

    At least the family has closure. But it’s Closure.

  6. Art mirrors life! Isn’t it interesting that nearly two years later the revealed facts of the case are damn nigh exactly synopsized in this crazy cartoon?

  7. I’m sorry he’s guilty, being killed by another wouldn’t have changed anything for Nina, but a lot for the rest of her family. And it’s always sad when society loses a brilliant mind because he went temporarily or permanently mad.

  8. “anyone who complains about this is a pussy who doesn’t deserve an opinion. learn to laugh, and whatever happens to han’s happens. this comic will not destroy the world.”

    True…. plus, the bitch obviously had it coming :)
