"Pigeons" Grand Finale!

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! To my readers from another country, today is a special day in America. Thanksgiving is a holiday that we celebrate in remembrance of the pioneers who first came to our country seeking the freedom and prosperity that their homelands could not deliver. 

When they arrived in the New World, they found it populated by gigantic, murderous, mutant turkeys. They suffered many hardships at the hands of their poultry overlords. Finally, after four years of captivity, John M. Giving lead a rebellion and overthrew the turkeys, driving them back into the sea, where they remain to this day, biding their time. Waiting. 

Every year at Thanksgiving, we slay and eat a turkey as a reminder of John M. Giving's sacrifice, and to frighten the turkeys back to their watery tombs for another year. 

If you're tempted to feel sorry for your thanksgiving turkey this week, just remember: some birds have it coming. 

The pigeons in my "Pigeons" series, for instance. They had it coming all along. This (double length!) tenth episode of Pigeons concludes the series. It's the longest cartoon I've ever drawn in such detail, and it was a blast. I'll have another series coming up soon. In the meantime, enjoy this cartoon, and enjoy your thanksgiving! NEVER FORGET!!

Make sure you can follow the story- the previous chapters in the "epic" pigeon "saga" (using those words a bit liberally, I acknowledge) are below. Each is only one page, they're quick reads. Chapter one, two, three, four, five, six,  seven,  eight., and nine.

And now, without further ado, the finale of "Pigeons".
