NEW WEBOMIC-"The Witty Wickies" starring Sparky Wicky and his son Willy: Episode YOUR DAD IS YOUR MEGATRON

I have no idea what this means or symbolizes other than Spike's dad hates him? And you got the Fight Club quote wrong.

Yeah, this one sets up the eventual hellish damnation of Sparky/Sparkplug. I couldn't just send him to hell for no reason and I was thinking the other day about how in the cartoon Spike and Sparkplug had this really great (and dull) relationship but there was that couple of episodes where Sparkplug is a zombie and they become really dysfunctional. Those were my favorite as they were probably mirroring what a lot of the kids watching were going through at home.

I know what the quote is, wiseguy! But the limitations of the panel size forced a compromise and I really liked how the shortened version reads because there's an abbreviated wisdom in it. Saying "If you could fight" implies that there's something holding you back, whether it be cowardice or societal pressure or physical disability or whatever. The Fight Club version is of course better, but in the movie it's a hypothetical used to illustrate a son's dissatisfaction with his father. I thought the dad hating the son was turning it around and making it a little more interesting.
