Story: Some farm animals are not going to put up with the farm’s new owner’s mean bullshit and so leave. But they can’t use each other’s products and so a boy trades the stuff they eat for their milk, cheese, eggs and pony rides.  

Good/Bad: The art is fine. The story is fine. 

The boy is holding his toast like a smart phone. Also he got the Cap'n Crunch w/o the Crunch Berries. I like that the cow and goat can obviously milk themselves, but that the goat is also a master of making cheese from the goat’s milk. Also Pony Rides. 

This is before the culture wars so this doesn’t feel all Christian or white power or redneck pride or that you should hate city folk and farm people are the best people. In fact, the farmer is a dick. 

@ussoccer_wnt: #ChasingAbby : Abby broke Mia Hamm’s scoring record of 158 goals by scoring a hat trick inside of 30 minutes on June 20, 2013 against Korea Republic. She then added a fourth in the 5-0 win, prompting a congratulatory tweet from POTUS. #ThanksAbby #OnlyOneAbby
