Quest For the Beak: Part II (Polar Bear Day)

It’s already International Polar Bear Day again. Yay for Polar Bears! Osborne has to spend this one alone while his big buddy searches for his beak. I see those tears guys, don’t be ashamed. Hopefully Wally finds it soon though… because it’s kind of morbid drawing Osborne without it.

Updates are a little slow right now. It’s more time on these and I’ve been busy trying to finish up some projects to go on vacation next week. After that it will be my main concentration to get the updates regular again, and yes, get the book finished. It will be a nice break, haven’t been on vacation in a while. Going to try and go to Sea World as part of the vacation, check out the latest their “Arctica” exhibit area has to offer, maybe get some good inspiration.

I want to thank everyone again who has purchased original art, such support of the comic is really keeping it at the forefront of my projects and hopefully some day it will be my full-time project. Also thanks to those that have run ads, especially the Running In the Halls ad up there currently running, go check that comic out, it’s a lot of fun, it stars a teacher and is actually written by a teacher.

The original art for this comic is available on the Original Art Sale page.

And you might want to revisit the Polar Bear Day comic from last year too. Can’t believe it’s already been another year.

I really wanted to get the rest of this storyline posted before vacation, but I’ve had a lot of projects to finish up right up to my departure and wasn’t able to. I’m really looking forward to it and having fun drawing these, but I’ll have finish it up when I get back, see you in a week.

  • I want osbourne to have his beak back, he looks so.. …hmm, wrong?
    Poor penguin!

  • Lee

    This is such a touching strip, it almost seems ungrateful to point out a spelling error, but I guess somebody has to do it: in panel 3 “who’s” should read “whose”.

  • WWWOOOOOOHHOOOOOO!!!!! Top three! Great comic Tyler

  • I salute to you Wally.

  • Osborne’s dexterity continues to amaze me.

  • Sarah

    aww…this is soo sad…

  • {GiGi}

    If only he’d know that Wally’s on a quest…

  • HAPPY POLAR BEAR DAY!!!! Don’t worry little buddy! Wally will be back soon! With your beak in hand.

  • LTaniki

    P.S. If you don’t know me I was Prevously Ishmael. 😀

  • Phizlo

    Happy Polar Bear Day! Poor Osborne, I miss Wally already. I can’t believe that a another Polar Bear Day came. It’s been a long time. When a year goes by, you won’t know what hit you. 😉 I made a snowman today, to celebrate Polar Bear’s Day. Why didn’t I make a snow Wally instead?! 🙁 Hope Osborne gets his beak back . . . and Wally eats those imported chocolates. 😎 Boy, I had a lot to say today! 😉

  • A very sentimental comic! Happy Polar Bear Day!

  • shikra

    sorry i ment beak before. Happy Polar Bear Day!!!! 🙂

  • laserguy

    Which Seaworld are you heading to? Just at the airport heading home from the San Diego version. Their Penguin house is still closed! It has been closed for a looong time, I guess they are repairing the glass which is large and hard to source, or at least that’s the excuse I was given. One of the polar bears was quite active when we were there playing with a box and a ball in the water. Quite a sturdy box I must say as it stood up to repeated double front paw “ice smashes”! Quite enjoyed seeing that. One of the p-bears at the SD Zoo was a bit goofy getting his head stuck in a traffic cone! I think they had put a treat inside and he had his snout right in there trying to get it out. Not very dignified at all, must be related to Wally! He heh!

  • Carlyneese!1!

    Thats so cute. We need to celebrate Wallys day + osbourn. there is a true friend for you. Both of them so loving toward each other its so cute.

  • This is touching… I told my friends that it was polar bear day and they either didn’t believe me to asked how I knew that… in memory of it being polar bear day I went to AM PM and bought a klondike bar…

  • Cristina

  • Vom

    Will Hero Wally come back with the beak? Or will he be a no-show?

  • Penguin Boy

    😥 Aww… Poor Osborne. I feel really 😥 sorry for you little buddy. I always have you in my thoughts every day :cry:.

  • This is so depressing I just want to crawl into a hole with rats,bugs, and spiders in it. Then I want the hole to be washed with gasoline. Then I want to be set on fire, shot and stabed repeatedly, until my death. So please don’t do another one like this. It just might mean my death. I hope Wally finds the beak!
