This was really funny, but.....
.......did Beartato trade the missile for the money?
He used it to rob the bank!

Reginald knows exactly where he has his friends.
He just left the missile in the bank? ....school boy error.
Once he got the money, he had no more need for the missile! Plus, they're heavy!
Beartato is the best friend ever. I wish all my firends had missiles.
Beartato shouldn't keep missiles in his cupboard. They attract missilemites.
I love the little details in this one. You didn't HAVE to name the bank clerk, but you did. And even though the expressions don't change at all in the last 3 panels, you still manage to convey Beartato's "What have I DONE!?" expression.
Thanks! I spent a lot of time on this one. This was one of the first ideas I had for an "Ask Beartato" comic but I figured I should have some more conventional question/answer type strips up first, to make it funnier.
Plus I actually drew most of this strip a few days ago, then scrapped it and re-did it today. I figured as long as I was putting so much time into it, I might as well do it as well as I could.
Reginald sure knows how to fake a ransom note really well!
He's had plenty of practice with real ransom notes!
i think his expression is more like silent-rage-shock.
like if you're on an amusement park ride and suddenly the cable snaps and rips off the bottom part of your legs...
or like he's so angry that he's above making any real emotions. :P and then he just stabs reginald with that same expression and continues to calmly walk away.
**hee, sorry i had to fix the "and or" typo.
i'm so glad i read this, awesome comic.

I can honestly say, without hyperbole, that this is the best thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
For some reason I love that Reginald hugs Beartato's face. I mean I guess he's mostly face, but still.
I love that Beartato keeps a missile in his closet for situations like that. That's dedication.
Also, that hug=priceless.
That third last panel gave me the gift of my first laugh this morning.
This comic is a beautiful thing! All the extra work really pays off!
It's like Reginald hugs him around the eyes. I love it.
The eighth panel just made me spit orange juice all over my brand-new monitor. I hope you're happy.

Look at that little spud run!
You know Beartato really should have seen that one coming - the ask Beartato strips are ace BTW.
This was basically perfect.
Dude, these keep getting better and better. The last three panels KILL and it's all in the fact that Beartato does not change.
what he said!! oh beartato D:
This is really good. I love the sense of urgency!
That is s so funny! Poor Beartato with his lame friend.
Don't speak that way about Reginald! He's just self-centred, like everyone else is. And slightly retarded. And kind of a jerk.
Actually, he's pretty fat too, when you look at him up close.
I HATE Reginald.

Secret tech is secret!
Uhhh secret roll-over tech! Will we be getting three punchlines (headline, comic, roll-over) from now on? Now thats a good value for our money!
Nah, I just didn't want to use that as the title because it gave away the shocking twist!
best comic you have done in a long time! this week
There needs to be a bigger version of panel 12, entitled "Beartato receiving hug (with $ bag)".
