From 1994 comes one of those signs that you’d slip behind a comic when it was on the rack:

It was never time for this.

(Okay, okay, actually for a non-founder Image title, it did better than expected. Save the hate mail.)

This is both amusing and depressing, which sums up the Gregory comics quite well, actually.
