Sorry everybody. I wasn’t able to make a final comic. But we will meet again some sunny day.
Sorry Guys begins next week
Oh no!!! D:
this is bullshit… : (
but good luck for you and hopefully you’ll make more awesome comics again someday : )
I wish you lots of luck and strength Ricky. I hope you can also hang out here in these comments with us.
I’ve enjoyed your comic for almost two years since I discovered it.
Thanks for all the laughs.
Take care man.
I still don’t think this will be the end, you are too talented to give up what you love, someday, some sweet day!
Go at your own pace, man. It’s all good. <: Just keep doing the things you love when ya can and people who also love it will follow.
Wha? It’s over? Just like that? Dude, no way! We love Kimbo!
I hope you find whatever it is you’re looking for and wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors! Feel better Ricky!!
On another note: AAAAUUUGAAWWWDDNOOOOOOnotsorryguys!! >_<
You will be missed :(
You mean this one? http://www.shakespeare-online.com/sonnets/29.html
Still not sure if you ain’t pulling our leg. It wouldn’t be the first time. Otherwise, I hope things will get better for you.
take you time and end in Beauty…
Ah, what a shame. I really loved Kimbo. Goodnight, sweet prince.

Good luck, Ricky! Like the rest of us I hope you’ll be back one day. Go find what you’re looking for. :)
Prompted by your remark, here is a song, dedicated to all your hard work:
Thanks for the entertaining comics!!!
catch you on the flipside, buddy.
Sorry guys.. Again this sad excuse for a comic. Substitute it with something else or better, leave a blank.
Damn you, broken image!!! You win this round.
Anyway, we will miss you Ricky. We hope to see you later in the future. Take care~
Mi corazon es roto. Adios Rickito… hasta que encontremos otra vez.
“Mi corazón está Roto. Blah… Hasta que nos encontremos otra vez/nuevamente /// Hasta que nos volvamos a encontrar”
Don’t trust Google Translator.
Are you going to be feeling so absolutely terrible next week that the site can’t be updated, thus trolling all the people who don’t like Sorry Guyz?
It’s cool, don’t burn yourself out, you’re only human. We could still read your old comics I love going back to Page one, hehe. Although I kind of wish you did what Gabe did and let your fans draw a spectacular Finale just for you.
Sorry Guys is the replacement?
Yeah….taking Dumm off my bookmarks… 8|
For one comic? Are you that fickle about things you don’t like? I don’t even read all of the comics on Dumm, yet I’m still able to enjoy the site and it’s content.
Been reading Nightmare Theater for a long while now, and I am sad to see it go, but I want you to know that I wish you luck in regaining your inner strength. It’s been a great ride and you’ve given us a lot of laughs, thoughts, and good times. Thank you for everything. My best to you in your future.
Wow. I bet you feel like the biggest douchebag now. It’s self-entitled assholes like you that make this world so difficult for some.
Dammit, sorry, that wasn’t meant for your comment, but for Zaku-sensei below. Sorry!
Thanks for the good comics, Ricky! I wish you the best!
And Sorry Guys, woo! Why do people hate it so much? It’s high-larious!
pathetic, between the whining last week and the no show this week, I’ve lost a lot of respect for you. “wah wah, my own comic is dark and moody, it’s making me depressed!” you could have revamped the stories and gags to be more hopeful, and injected different attitudes into your work over time, or just made a clean slate and started something new with some unrelated filler while you planned, but you just broke down instead. Do try to get your act together. If you’re this sad over a webcomic, I’d hate to know how much of a wreck your daily life is.
Are you kidding me? It’s because of bad events in his life that he’s no longer doing the comic. You really thought all the trouble he’s gone through is solely because of the comic? You completely ignored the fact that the comic has been running since 2008 and not once has this ever happened before, but now that it does, you believe it’s simply because of the comic?
You’re in no place to call anyone pathetic.
He never even stated the comic is depressing him, dumbass. Making a comic more happy isn’t going to sort out the bullshit in your life. Take that cynical Disney shit elsewhere.
Zaku? shut the fuck up.
WTF, you feel you’re entitled to entertainment? Pull your head out of your ass….. fucking couch-commander, you probably did nothing interesting with your life….
hope you feel good about yourself.
You’re about four feet from being a murderer.
Good job fucktard, now he’s dead. I hope you’re proud of yourself. I hope you’re REAL FUCKING PROUD OF YOURSELF. You are trash, you are nothing but sick, ugly trash, and I hope you get genital parasites.
Zaku-sensei: Erm, did Garduno say “this comic itself is making me depressed?” – I suspect there’s an outside event that’s making him depressed.
Also remember that he featured his ex-girlfriend in a marriage proposal posted in the comic. He later posted a comic related to his breakup there. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
get over yourself, “zaku-sensei”. if you’re this vitriolic on the internet, i’d hate to know how pathetic and lonely your real life is.
(see? i can make glib, uninformed comments about a stranger’s life too!)
ricky, all the best to you. i’m sad and disappointed to see kimbo go, but that’s a knee-jerk, totally selfish reaction. your comic and twisted humour and brilliant mind made me feel better during some hard times. you deserve to do whatever you need to in order to do the same for yourself.
i’m sure whatever you choose to create in the future will be equally fantastic, and i hope i’m lucky enough to get to see it.
I for one am very excited about sorry guyz coming back, its just a damn shame to see this go. I lub it so much :3 and lub ricky!
good show, all the same.
heal yourself [not the same as 'medicate' yourself]
this is a dick way to end my favorite comic, man. I hope you find happiness, ricky, I really do. but I was so excited (and sad) to see what sort of sendoff you give it, and then…..nothing. Big Pants Mouse, Earthward Ho, shit even Sorry Guys had a good sendoff. Disappointed. but I’ll live.
yeah prioritizing your mental health is a real dick move
just leave it at ‘i hope you find happiness’ in the future.
hope you get better Ricky, we’ll really miss you and NT1930.
Good luck in everything, Ricky!
Oh man. I really loved Kimbo, it was one of the only forms of dark humor that was actually funny. It’s very sad to hear this, but yeah, as other people have said, it’s just a webcomic. I don’t fault you for moving on and trying to better yourself, since knowing that the cartoonist is not happy with his work kind of stifles my enjoyment of the comic as well. Hope for the best, and hope to see something new from you sometime. :>
Also, ahahaha, Sorry Guyz is coming back. I loved that comic, and loved the comments on it even more. Can’t wait to see what David is cooking up for his return to the haterzzzzzzzz.
THAT final for a great webcomic, Ricky you have a good talent, i see that you are very underrated animator but you are great for make this comic and is more popular in INTERNET, GOOD luck…………………..and i have my final of 1930 Nightmare Theatre!!
Kimbo think of things that have happened and wants to be a great person and with all the people around and when about to vindicate with Vespula and his friends …………… …………… dies accidentally fall down the stairs and his soul is free and then see when everyone knows about his death and all the crying and asks the heavens to return to his life and no longer going to be in trouble, and miraculously revives and many of his friends by Vespula are glad that Kimbo has returned to life as a new person or dog.
THE END …………. maybe really good for some not a great final but personally it will be fine to close his great misfortune. I say goodbye and farewell KIMBO, yellow jackets, all the characters in Nightmare Theatre and RICKY Garduño.
I have really enjoyed and appreciated this comic over the years you’ve been doing it, and I’ll miss it. Thanks.
I loved this comic /sniff good night sweet prince,
AND GOD NO NOT sorry guys again. Skiping mondays now.
Kimbo, I really enjoyed your comic, I know I will be back many times!!!
We’ll just pretend this happened today.
Best wishes Ricky!
Cool! I get an instant broken link image GIF!
Thanks for making such a great comic. While I preferred when you used it for nightmarish horror stories, the political and social commentary stuff was good, too. Best of luck, and hopefully you’ll return to Dumm someday…
This comic is great and really brightened a lot of my days. I WILL hold my breath for more and keep my eye out for anything else by Ricky.
Damn! Dumm Comics without Kimbo is not Dumm Comics! Kimbo and Shaki are the remnants of the original foundation of the Dumm Comics!!! Your life not yours! Your life belongs to her fans! keep drawing!!!! hahahaha … just kidding! It was good while it lasted!
Well… Things get better for you!!! See ya!
You’re apologies aren’t accepted, first you leave us, then you don’t even give us a final comic and now we get that fucking turd Sorry Guys. It’s like you fucking kicked people in the nuts on your way out. Great.
lol wow. I have read through the comments left on these comics and you always have the stupidest thing to say. Well, congrats because you are officially one of the most obnoxious people I have ever had the displeasure of coming across. This man was suffering enough to take his own life and you think he was worried about a fucking comic and making YOU happy? A real person is DEAD here and you’re going on about how “jipped” you feel? You’re selfish, immature, and you need to grow the fuck up and watch what you say before someone kicks you on your ass.
Hot damn, lonkiog pretty useful buddy.
congratulations on helping make someone feel bad enough to accidentally kill themselves I guess
are you serious
no, it’s like he has a real life and correctly placed it before free entertainment in the name of taking care of himself. you’re a dick.
ricky, thanks for all the fish. i hope you’re okay.
There’s a whole crapload of comics with dead Kimbo, so I don’t see how you can really make an “end” comic after that.
It was an awesome comic, but you gotta do what’s right for you.
Thanks for the run, you were really an awesome webcomic maker, I hope you rise above your issues and find renewed strength in pursuing what you want! Hope you know that what you made here really seemed to matter, people love your work, and I do too! Best wishes for you on your way forward.
I’m sorry to pass this on here…From what I’ve been told, Ricky took his life over the weekend…No other details have been pass on…
Jesus fucking Christ, fuck I don’t even know…………
No we won’t.
Yeah.. “But we will meet again some sunny day.” isn’t happening now.
RIP Ricky Garduno.
In all seriousness, how sad that this guy had such a hard life but ultimately his fanbase focused on throwing internet at each other instead of just posting their own opinions.
“throwing internet at each other”???
Drama, bullshit, ignorance, take your pic. Supplement something.
oh crap! Ricky is dead! sux big time :(
I’ve just found out what’s happened. It’s terrible. RIP
I can’t help thinking about that cockmule who kept posting endless gloating diatribes about Sybille when Ricky was holding his scorched and bleeding heart out for the Internet to inspect. I hope he’s eating shovelfuls of shit pies in Hell right now.
What? When did this happen? Who posted it?
Just some pro-am troll. It was on the old site, so the comments are probably gone, fortunately.
“But we will meet again some sunny day.”
Fuck… I cried a little. :(
I just cried. I’m so sorry.
I’ll catch you on the flipside buddy.
I felt a connection to your comic.
God damn it.
I just re-read the comic from the beginning, in one sitting, and this feels like it comes up and smacks you in the face out of nowhere.
Ricky was only a few years older than me :(
R.I.P. RICKY =(
I can’t believe he died.I was all like “No way,you all have to be joking.” so I googled it and it was absolutely true.:(
I never forgot you and I never will.
:( I want to say this in spanish
No te conocí, pero conocí tu trabajo… dabas todo en el, tus lectores llegamos a sentir lo que tu nos dejabas ver en tu trabajo y por ello te doy las gracias, me hiciste comprender muchas cosas. Espero que estés descansando. aquí te extrañaremos mucho!
Ill never forget you!
Can’t say I didn’t see this outcome coming….. it’s still a shock even if not a surprise.
I just saw the dedication after the new Family Guy and I started researching out of curiosity. Even though I’ve only been reading for a couple of hours, it seems such a shame. :( He was very talented. Too young. I hope hes found peace.
What Candice said…
he didn’t finish? ah… fuck, just… fuck.
RIP Rick. May you finally have peace. You died far too young.
Just finished re-reading the whole Kimbo series non-stop since yesterday.
My admiration for Ricky and his art has increased. I’m pretty sure he’ll find his creativity and imagination pretty handy on his travels across the veil.
Hasta la vista, compañero.
rick’s been on my mind a lot lately. whenever i think about him, i still stop and think – hope – for a moment that it was all some kind of horrible joke.
we miss you very, very much, and we hope you’ve finally happy, wherever you are.
rest in peace.
…I would comment that this sounded very suspicious but I don’t want to rock any waves.
I’m just sorry I never got to know the guy before he left us. May he rest in peace wherever he is.
Oh one more thing, Dumm Comics finally has a TVTropes page: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DummComics
Please contribute when you can.
Hi, Ricky. You gone away a year ago but still i can´t forget you, i wanted to write you about the amazing you are, and thank you for give me once at week (sometimes 3) a reason to smile during 4 years. I didn´t before cause i knew you were bussy enough to write things that you already know. I remember you wanted to make a final trip but you couldn´t, so i made an alternative end in loving memory of you. I hope you like it, but i know you would make it better. Rest in peace.
Just went back and read a bunch of 1930. Man Ricky, why’d you have to go and do a thing like that. Miss you.
Suddenly thought of nightmare theatre again today.. It’s been over 2 years but it’s never gonna stop sucking. We’ll never know what other fantastic stories Ricky could have brought us and hear him one day saying that life had gotten better. I understand his depression because I know it well, but the aftermath is horrible. Likely, even if you feel that you’re alone in the world, in reality you aren’t. Hope his passing makes people think twice, once they see how much he meant to others. And to those self-entitled asshole trolls, I hope you burn.
thanks a lot, all! :)Ridu: nice to meet you too! we shud meet up sometime again :)wiryamasna: met kenal jugaa…makasi yaaa :)amira mila: you’re most weocmle, dear! :)Anonymous: apparently there’s an impersonator on FB…be careful, please! 20something: thank u so much! will visit your blog!! :)thata: sama2 ya dear…thanks for coming too..really appreciate it :)A N A S T A S Y A : got these shoes from Hongkong..:)
When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featur’d like him, like him with friends possess’d,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
Katie Rice (Skadi) mentioned this as a Webcomic worth reading on a recent podcast. It really is. After devouring the 1930NT archives, and knowing a bit about the context of the author’s life, this content is an internet treasure. I hope others are fortunate enough to be told about, or stumble across, this amazing work.
