About

Goodbye Friend is a series of four-panel exploitable webcomics based on a comic by artist Mr. Lovenstein. The comic features a character who pays a sniper to follow him with orders to execute if they ever do anything embarrassing. Online, people replace the characters embarrassment with various things, leading to the final panel in which the character says to their companion, "Goodbye friend."

Origin

On January 23rd, 2018, Mr. Lovenstein[1] published a four-panel webcomic about two friends. In the first panel, the fuchsia-colored character asks their blue-colored friend, "What's up with that red dot on your head?" The blue-colored character answers, "I hired a sniper to put me out of my misery if I ever do something painfully embarrassing." The third panel features the blue character tripping on a flight of stares. The final panel shows the blue character saying "Goodbye friend" as the fuchsia character watches in horror. When posted to Facebook [2] the comic received more than 9,900 reactions and 2,000 shares in two days.
