Because there aren’t enough webcomics capable of totally breaking your heart in twelve pages.

If irreparable and fatal brain damage is what it takes to get people to stop mindlessly quoting the Simpsons, I cannot say the cost is too high.
Wow. That was heartbreaking. And I can’t decide if I’m proud or sad in recognizing every single quote.
Thank you, Odd King.
I was going to say something that was totally anti what Dan Solomon was trying to accomplish, but you said it much better than I could have.
… maybe if they weren’t drawn like mutant raisins I’d be more empathetic.
I like the art, it is like a cross between Paul Pope and Benjamin Birdie.
And it took me a minute to figure out that almost every single line of spoken text is a Simpsons quote.

Very interesting and unique style of artwork. It’s like the AEon Flux with a Salvador Dali twist.

It’s supposed to look like Simpsons art. Which was always crappy.
Wow… Just… wow.

“It’s supposed to look like Simpsons art. ”
It failed. Hard.
I thought they were a couple dudes with down’s syndrome or something.
[…] [Comic] “Don’t Cry For Me, I’m Already Dead” by Rebecca Sugar doesn’t look like it’ll break your heart… at first… (Above: panel from the comic, ©2008 Rebecca Sugar. Link via Dan Solomon.) […]
My, aren’t we a jaded lot?
Dude, after growing up with countless sappy afterschool specials in the 1980’s, you’d have to be wielding a polymimetic nanomer alloy claw with a mono-molecular edge to even get close to my heartstrings.
I found this substantially more moving: http://animalcrossingtragedy.ytmnd.com/
The movingest webcomic ever is still Dan Kim’s Nana’s Everyday Life.
Starts as a random and vulgar collection of internet memes .. then around strip 16 or so, it cleans up its act, so to speak, and enters an emotional rollercoaster ride that takes you from sad to super happy, but only to worsen the inevitable fall to heartbreaking.

“I thought they were a couple dudes with down’s syndrome or something.”
Exactly what I thought.
I’m with all the people whose hearts weren’t broken, sorry.
(Simpsons quotes actually don’t annoy me, so the most engaging thing about reading this was picking out quotes I knew. Otherwise…? I also agree that it’d be better if the artwork didn’t make the characters look vaguely sinister/creepy.)
Moving, but the art style really turned me off. I am not a fan of that kind of style.
[…] standard for Halloween vignettes on “Treehouses” – so memorable that it inspired a pretty great webcomic, and “Enslave humanity, willya?” is one of my favorite lines from the series ever. […]
