It's Hebrew for 'So be it' or 'may it be so.'

"Amen" is shorthand for a drum loop known as the amen break, which in turn takes its name from the song "Amen, Brother," performed by the Winstons. It is a crucial part of many a genre, from breakbeat and hip-hop to drum-and-bass and its many offshoots, among them, breakcore and drill-n' bass.

...Okay, okay, I'll stop pulling your legs. "Amen" is an old Hebrew declaration of affirmation. It means something to the amount of "truly" or, as Anon44 said earlier, "so be it."

I'm impressed

Wow! My very first visit to this site and two commenters know Hebrew! (They are correct, btw. "amen" is agreement on an emotional level, in contrast to "yea" which is agreement from the intellectual perspective.) I might have to subscribe to this strip...

According to my dad it's basically the same thing as "So say we all."

My dad's a freakin' nerd.

If I may ask, where was the background based off of? Because it looks to me a lot like the Northern Oregon Coast (i.e. Haystack Rock and surrounding area)

If that's the case, you are awesome!

Generally "So be it."
Also "Amin" in Arabic.

I'd like to point out I know Hebrew, and I have no idea what "amen" means. It doesn't follow the rules of Hebrew, as far as I know. It's just a word, which probably stands for "so be it".
So there's that.
