There Are Only So Many Car Jokes

“I think we all felt we had just done every airplane joke we could think of.” – the writers/directors of the film Airplane! on why they didn’t participate in the sequel.

When I started writing/drawing Stuck in Reverse, I knew the comic had a finite lifespan. No matter how many car magazines I read, or track events I attended, or time I spent working on my car, there was only going to be so many car related jokes I could make into a comic strip.

The comic is not ending today, there’s at least a few more jokes I want to share, but in the next few weeks or months Stuck in Reverse will be coming to an end.

I do want to thank you for reading Stuck and Reverse. All the shares on Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/message boards were very much appreciated. I hope you enjoyed the comic, and maybe I’ll see you around for my next project, whatever that may be.


  1. Noooooo this is like my favorite series ever.

  2. Nils, I’ve been reading Stuck in Reverse ever since you made a post about it on Reddit around three years ago, thank you so much for all the amusement it has given me over that time.

  3. Is there any way to place a request or are the final ones already drafted? I’d love to see a few about Swedish cars before the series ends, since the Swedish auto industry seems to go unnoticed by most of the world for a majority of the time…btw, I’ve loved this series, followed it on this site for probably a year now, sad to see it go but I totally understand…best of luck in whatever comes next!

      I haven’t finished all the comics yet. I don’t really take requests, but I’ll see what I can do. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

  4. You know, much fun as I’ve had reading your strip, I understand that all good things eventually end. Two of my very favorite comics growing up were Calvin & Hobbes, and The Far Side. Both came to an end, and didn’t drag it into the ground to the point where it wasn’t even funny anymore.

    So, I see nothing wrong with going out on a high note. However, don’t let “the end of SIR” mean that you’ll never post the occasional strip if you feel the inspiration. =)

      Thanks for the kinds words, Brad. I’ll be sure to post additional comics if I have an idea that strikes my fancy. 🙂
