Heartbreak by AnthonyHolden Heartbreak by AnthonyHolden
My son had his first lesson in heartbreak this week when his preschool ended. He loved that school, but it couldn’t go on forever.

It’s an important life lesson to have—after all, everything comes to an end eventually. As a dad, watching him grow up and learn this lesson was kind of bittersweet.

Stop! Just, stop! I was expecting a laugh and now my heart is breaking! Excellent comics though :)

Thanks! It was a pretty tender moment from a dude who tends not to be tender so often, which made it extra special.

AWW. This is so, so lovely! I was leaving my friends after college, going back home last December and it felt exactly the same. You've captured it SO beautifully! Here's hoping your son will be happy again! :)

He's recovered by now.

And it seems as though this is a pretty universal experience based on some feedback I'm getting.

Oh goody.
It's also how well you've translated the experience into that comic. Cheers!

Those bittersweet moments never really end...:-( This is just a scratch on an avalanche of deep cuts. Thicken that skin Anthony.

It's true. This is his first of many encounters with sadness--we both need to toughen up!
