Who Killed Garfield Palmer? Part 2

First | Previous | 2012-07-30 | Next | Latest

Strip by: The Madb

{Garfield lies on the table, under a plastic sheet. Jon is as far away from him as he can be, on the phone.}
Jon: He's dead. Wrapped in plastic.

The author writes:

After submitting Who Killed Garfield Palmer?, I realised I could continue from there. The line (and strip's title) naturally comes from the TV show Twin Peaks.

Study Group Questions:
Why is Jon so far away from Garfield's corpse?
Is he distancing himself from:

  1. the act of killing Garfield?
  2. guilt over not stopping Garfield's suicide?
  3. the stink of a dead cat on the table?
Who is Jon speaking to?
