    Someone make a trip to Ikea lately?

    I know it’s probably not, but I am really wanting this to be a series / story arc.

    Panel 9 makes me happy to be alive!

  4. Hiller

    Love the instruction booklet, you’ve definitely been IKEAed.
    I must say, they do a great bookcase.

    I think this may be my favorite Faraday comic ever. I also think I need to seriously reconsider buying any flat pack furniture anytime soon, for the sake of my sanity.

    I love it! ps: think we’ll stick to the Ikea restaurant from now on!

    worth waiting for…. as was the bookshelf!

  9. helen

    just love the last 2 windows!

    Thanks for the comments!
    NKH - wasn’t planned as a series unfortunately – might do a follow up ‘what happened next’ kind of thing some day though.
    Everyone else – yeah this is loosely based on my own adventures in flat-pack assembly :( Sometimes, in the dead of night, I swear I can hear an Allen key faintly turning, turning, somewhere in the house…

    Despite the trevails with ikee it could have been worse. In my day their equivalent were MFI, a vastly inferior outfit.

  12. Alotron

    MFI sounds like a covert-ops British Intelligence Agency. Flatpack night vision goggles.

    This is literally the best comic ever. Literally.

    Cheers Jamie :D
