#1000 – Grow

I hated getting growing pains when I was a kid. It was this never ending dull ache that made it hard to go to sleep. I just couldn’t find a comfortable position because the pain radiated from all directions. I mostly just remember being crabby for days at a time.

    WOO! The world always needs more Biff! Here’s to 1000 more. If you run out of titles I’ll start inventing words for you.

  10. Michael Chandra says:

    I can totally understand the pain, I had them so bad I occasionally cried out from them, it hurt that much. I still have the stretchmark scars all over my back from it.

  11. fluffy says:

    Could the complete archive now be called a “kilobiff?”

  12. SharkJumper says:

    This one is gonna need a fold-out page to make the right impression in a book.

  13. Mickel says:

    Congrats on 1 grand. Those are the largest Chucks ever!

  14. MaskMan says:

  15. ladyamethyst83 says:

    wow. 1000th! and a giant biff to boot! let’s hope there’s a shrink ray in there too.. he might have stepped on it though…

  16. Chuck says:

    I never had growing pains. I guess it’s because I didn’t grow much. 5’2′. I did get horrible pains in one leg or the other, never both at once. I don’t think they were growing pains, though, because I still get them, and I am almost 23.

  17. Pete says:

    Congrats on number 1000, really awesome work. Here’s to another 1000!

  23. Kasain says:

  24. Tomixcomics says:

    HAPPY 1000!!!

  25. reynard61 says:

    Happy 1K, Chris! You and the Biffster can always be counted on to make my day just a little weirder.

  26. Velguador says:

    Congrats on #1000, Chris. Did you expect to ever get this far when the first comic of The Book of Biff hit the internet?

  27. Vrominelli says:

  32. Matt says:

    Congrats on 1000. To think I’ve read them all. Very enjoyable, wish more people could appreciate the beauty of these single panel comics.

    Also, growing pains totally sucked. I only ever noticed them when going to bed 🙁 Horrible days.

  33. Jonz says:

    Took me about a week to read the other 999 comics – well done on an amazing comic. You can really see the improvement, especially when you’re reading it backwards!
    Happy 1000, hope there are still many more to come.
    Also, Biff looks like his body has been sliced in two at the waist in this one…

  34. ZachSkunk says:

    Perhaps in the book, this page will require the reader to unfold it.

  35. speakerblast says:


    —> Epic folding spread!

  36. RFPT says:

    Now he’s going to destroy the city and eat the population to the tune of ‘Woman’ by Wolfmother.

    whoever gets the reference knows way more than they should.

  37. Polymorph says:

    Once I had growing pains so bad that I couldn’t move without sharp pain. I stayed at a friends house that day. The worst part was when their large dog jumped on me.

  38. I tip my hat to your one thousand.

  39. Irma says:

    Huge congrats! At my own pace I’ll hit 1000 in 7½ years 🙂 And I love how he enlarges out of the strip as well 😉

  40. baughbe says:

    Happy 1000! Just make sure Biff doesn’t get too big for his britches. The censors wouldn’t like it (publicly).

  41. i.half4 says:

    The future? ha-ha-ha-ha
    The future? ha-ha-ha-ha
    The future? ha-ha-ha-ha

    This is the first time a strip has deviate from the regular format, that isn’t on April fools day. This comic is still my favourite comic strip, as it has been since the day I found it!

  45. NaomiKnight says:

    Dang, a THOUSAND? Wow.

    Also, this is officially my favorite Biff strip ever. Way to think outside the, uh, panel!

  46. Peter says:

    Hey, has anybody else noticed there is only one car in the parking lot? Biff has that whole lab to himself! What a lonely guy.

  47. SEA says:

    I am surprised no one have said this yet…

    Biffzilla! Run for your lives. >:o

    Congratulations on 1000 comics, here’s to 1000 more. 😀

  82. Elfe says:

    Isnt it funny that i caught up with the comic reading just on your 1000?

    I have a friend at school, to whom i told biff jokes today (The ones that work without the pictures and yes, of course i told her the source. ) And she cracked up and got pretty bad looks from our art teacher. She asked me for more. I am beginning to wonder how weird it is for everyone else when suddenly too tables in the back of our small art room explode with histerical laughter you can probably hear in the main building of the school…

  83. JezMM says:

    Congrats on 1000 from me too. Very impressive work!

  84. steve-o says:

  88. YukiSnowflake says:

  90. Howerz says:

    Happy 1,000! Yes this is my first comment, yes I am gonna keep reading, and I feel weird that I am posting this comment over a year after this was made.

    1. Jennifer says:
