Ok in reading the comic i think i may have stumbled onto something.

remember chapter 5 where fisk beats longfellow with the bat?
well previously he was talking to sheila about working with jim

heres what i think really happened i think both him and jim worked for the "private company" and had the same cover story but longfellow did something he wasn't supposed to do, possibly to jim himself, resulting in him going off to hide posing as a principal.

now when robert hears about him and sheila, he is coincidently flying to a place near her for a meeting?
during their lunch together i believe robert gave sheila false information in order to severe any connection between her and longfellow

now after the incident with the bat it is realized that sheila is no longer safe and longfellow needs to be taken "care" of. because if you notice after the docter checks up on him he hands over control to the other doctor who looks like and probably is robert, who wants to move up longfellows surgery, coincidently causing his death.

You are fairly on the money. That was robert that took over the principles care. He didn't up the surgery date, he just flat out offed the dude.

It was hinted that Longfellow had connections with Fisk's dad but what they really are Jay had not said yet. Looking at his writing style, I'd say that eventually, we will know.

Either way, there is clearly more going on than we have been allowed to see thus far. However, Jay has said that he's pretty much "done" with the more serious story arcs--he wants to keep future story arcs light, funny, and away from the deeper, darker, more serious undertones.

Bottom line--we may never know.

Yeah, this is a sad day but Jay has another comic to replace (continue?) Better Days. He had some drawings up showing Fisk's little ones.

I will miss Better Days, though.

In the bottom link, I'm more concerned about the power drill in Abbigail's hands and the look she's giving her brother. Razz

His new Comic is named Original Life. It follows Fisk and his family. Jay wrote that most of the characters from Better Days will show up sooner or later.

Wow, looks like Jay's gone to a new shading method. Hmmm... did he even use any shading at all in Better Days...?

I'm excited about the new comic.

Well, why didn't Elizabeth have a nice thing to say about Thomas?

Just because he was snoring, mouth open, drool ready to begin running ...
