Either the artist messed up with word balloon placement in panel 2, or this comic is about a bird that talks to himself. Maybe he’s schizophrenic? It would make sense, since he’s specifically requesting a cereal that won’t talk to him. I think it’s safe to say that most cereals don’t talk. (Some people might consider the snapping, crackling, and popping of Rice Krispies to be talking, so I’ll give him that one) No, most likely this bird is dangerously psychotic. He desperately wants to escape the voices, but he doesn’t know how. He’s hoping the woman at the restaurant can at least give him a cereal that won’t keep telling him to ‘kill’, but I’d say she probably doesn’t really exist either.
Final verdict: Today’s Shoe is a heart-rending look at serious mental disorder
