He went to a dark place for a minute there.
Commander Badass could never go for a woman with some frou-frou office job. That being said, I hope he motivates her to become HEAD butcher.
PS If she’s making hint hint nudge nudge “you can sleep with me if you want” undertones, does this mean she’s one step closer to learning his actual name (if there is one)?
Hmm… Maybe it’s just me, but she doesn’t seem to be giving “hint hint nudge nudge ‘you can sleep with me if you want'” undertones. There’s a difference between wanting to go to someone’s house and wanting to take up residence in their bed.
Granted I’m terrible at this, but that’s what girls would call “being dense.”
Tis all about context. And it wouldn’t mean that for every girl, and not even this one.
THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!!
NO, THIS IS PATRICK!
IT’S A FAAAAAAAKE!!!
ITS A TRAP
While I do admit that there is often subtext involved in asking to go over to the house of one of the opposite gender, I still believe that there is a possibility that their relationship is purely platonic. She might just want to see how much of his house is occupied by body-building equipment. She might just want to discover how much money is exchanged in those “gambling” get-togethers with him and his bros. She might just want to see what his movie collection is like, hoping for horrible horrible movies for them to watch and laugh at.
Or knowing that he is a man with an ex-wife and kids, wants to see how messy his house is and is trying to subtly drop the hint that she can pick up the slack the ex left and maybe they should start dating and oh great now look at what you made me do.
If she just wants to hang out at his place and get a peek at his home life, that would be just about the oddest way possible to say it. Particularly when you take into account the playful facial expression and body language. If I said that to a guy, I would be VERY surprised if he didn’t interpret it as testing the waters for the sexy times.
If I just wanted to see a guy’s house (which I dont think I’d really care about anyway) I’d talk about my own place some, and ask him about his house itself a few times, and maybe suggest a movie rental night or something.
Er, and as I think more on it, the other platonIc option is that she doesn’t give a crap about his living conditions and just sincerely is curious about why he’s not more forward with the flirting. Still would be an odd, ambiguous way to say it, though. ;3
that’s kinda how I took it; not so much “I’m willing to sleep with you”, but more “why aren’t you trying to sleep with me?”
I agree with confusion. I’ve had some similar conversations in my time. When it does boil down to the ‘Why aren’t you trying to sleep with me?’ aspect, it’s hard to realize just how deep you were in it to begin with
On that, I agree with the Commander’s quick shift in topics.
If a woman asks you that question, there is no right direct answer. There’s 1) variations on ‘you’re not my type,’ which tends to offend them, or 2) ‘I would, but ___,’ which is seen as a tacit confession that “yes, I am normally a cad.”
Kill the head butcher, wear his skin.
It is the only sensible course of action
Of course how could it not be.
I cannot agree more.
Don’t forget to eat the brain!
I wonder if he taste’s like chicken?
And eat a big bite of the heart in front of the other butchers, so they don’t get any ideas.
Oh god I lolled for like 20 minutes
“your hide would make a fine poncho”
You must also eat his heart to gain his courage.
His tasty tasty courage,,
And afterward, you can grind the body into meat! YOU CAN’T LOSE!
Until the locals wonder where all the pets and children have gone, I mean.
Except you get the shakes from eating human flesh.
New Vegas taught me many wonderful things. Thank you, Old Ben.
Actually, eating brain tissue causes the shakes, a condition known as “Kuru.”
Actually you only get Kuru if the person you eat the brain from had Kuru, and since the disease is mostly seen in Africa I don’t think the butcher would have it. Howerver it is possible he has Mad Cow Disease, and this disease can be transmitted the same way…
The reason eating people meat causes the shakes is because of prion’s, which are what causes Mad Cow disease. The thing is, as the top predators, human beings are the ones with the most prions, and therefore, eating our meat excessively will cause one to develop the Shakes old ben was referring to.
…I was about to start my comment with actually, until I realized I would just be perpetuating the line of actually’s.
Prion concentration is highest in the brain and spinal cord IIRC, including the tissues immediately surrounding those parts. So eating the thigh meat of a kuru-infected person puts you at less risk of actually developing the disease than if you’d eaten the brain of a kuru-infected person.
Not to be rude, but this is so wrong it’s painful. Prion based diseases don’t work like that at all. Not even remotely.
“Mostly seen in Africa”? No. It’s not. Kuru is limited to a small part of Papua New Guinea, an island just North of Australia.
Originally called “the laughing sickness” it has an interesting history and the last known death was in 2005. For more:
Strip the flesh?
Salt the wound?
It’s time, ahahahaha, for another pound of flesh!
Let’s pound some meat puppets!
That only works if she and the head butcher are the same size.
the person whose skin you intend on wearing needs to be bigger than you, it would be like trying to fit a box inside of an equal-sized box. Think Russian nesting dolls.
Well yeah, but only slightly bigger. Otherwise, there’ll be sagging and that’s never good.
You do need to allow for some shrinking when you preserve it, assuming you’re thinking that far ahead.
This sounds like a conversation the commander’s guys would be having with her in an attempt to be friendly.
Of course she she can’t kill the Butcher. The Head Butcher is her father!
Aren’t some of these game characters vegetarians? How does she go about defending her occupation to them? I mean, the lack of meat in their diet doesn’t make them less scary.
If it does sag, you just need a sign on that says you are not who you are. Fool people in fiction land every time.
Read Silence of the Lambs.
or Silence of the Hams
Or Silence of the Jams.
Wait, are we still rhyming?
It shouldn’t be to hard to fit inside him, he’s a head butcher. When’s the last time you saw a tiny guy in that job?
Hopefully the Butcher is not a samurai :D Damn I’m old.
God, talk about the mind going to dark places.
Edgar (Eggar) knows all about sagging. Too bad he never got that book published on how to properly wear a human skin.
‘Bug-eye for the skin-wearing guy’
Ever since “it rubs the lotion on its skin” the theory of man-suit preparation is enjoying the study it deserves!
The head butcher is actually just a 5 year old child, moving from store to store, finding larger and larger head butchers to kill to be able to wear their skins
isn’t that the plot for the next Double Fine game?
Oh god I didn’t even know,
I have to get that game.
paint the man, cut the lines, paint the man, cut the lines, PAINT THE MAN, CUT THE LINES, DANIEL.
okay, now that that’s out of my system…is it wrong i wanted to hug the commander after he snapped out of his dark place? now i’m seriously kind of freaked/curious about what the hell prompted his divorce.
Totally normal people around here, yup. Nothing strange or out of the ordinary, no sir. Nobody around here I wouldn’t mind meeting up with in a dark alleyway, yes indeed. And what pleasant and soothing conversations we might strike up. Now if you’ll excuse me I must be on my way, terribly urgent…yes…
I see what you did there…
He can always appreciate a job that involves sharpening knives in the middle of conversations, Never breaking the gaze on the other person’s eyes…
This is always a treat at the end of the week
She’s so forward! Oh Commander, I hope you come around one day… ;)
Well, that certainly is an awkward moment. >_>
awww, it’s cute seeing the commander all flustered
Brutal honesty is the only kind of honesty the Commander knows.
Hmmmm……. Pyrokinesis vs. a Cleaver…..
his foot is so far into is mouth that he’s CHOKING ON IT
Haven’t we all, at some point, wished we could set people on fire with our mind?
I know I have…
You mean _you_ can’t… :O
Oh hang on, haven’t taken _my pills_ yet.
_Why_ are _you_ putting _underscores_ around _everything_?
Don’t worry, HTML. I still love you.
lol, people are trying to use textile even thought it shows you right below the comment box how to use the html formatting.
Women. Can’t live with them, can’t set them on fire.
Unless they get off on it.
The world should be thankful I don’t have an Incinerate! plasmid. Or a giant drill…
Or a giant flaming drill…..
You know, this is something that I really like about the Commander. Unlike your steretypical macho man (or just man for that matter), he’s open about the fact that he does have feelings too, and that like all of us, he can get in a dark mood/funk every once in a while.
we men are willing to admit we have feelings………….maybe
Of course the Commander has feelings! We’ve all seen how much he loves his kids!
Commander : flawless save
Achievement Unlocked “Flawless Save” 1000000g
Now I have visions of Pyramid Head shyly peeping around the corner of the Cereal Aisle, rapt with frothy joy from watching her skill with a knife.
Best mental image of the week. Thank you. :D
I’ll second that one. I wish I could draw decently, then I’d make that my wallpaper…
Thirded. Oh so very thirded*.
…Now I’m getting an image of her telling him off while waving her bone cleaver, yelling that he’s scaring the customers (even though she’s equally scary when doing that).
Pyramid has developed a man crush. I suggest an investment in a rape whistle
A rape whistle wouldn’t work! Get a freakin’ car alarm!!!
Isn’t it only a man crush if both sides are male?
… oh shit I forgot xD
So rather, it’s a manly crush?
So… she’s good with knives?
And cleavers. And meat grinders.
If they ever start dating, commander better not piss her off
Don’t forget the band saw. *sexy bloody chainmail glove*
Now the commander’s midnight bull fights can end with juicy steak dinners.
I thought they already did, or at least ribs.
You an’ me both Commander
Now that was a nice touch for character development. I mean it, he hasn’t done much to actually embarrass himself before.
Now you mention it, this is true. Also, funny and awkward instead of wangsty. Wangst is not the Commander’s style.
His embarrised face has made my day at two in the morning. Wonderful.
I have tried, many a time, to set women on fire with my mind. It’s a lot more difficult than it sounds.
I find that if you use your mind to control your hands and then use your mind-controlled hands to set off a nice lighter or blowtorch, this works quite well.
That…that is GENIUS. Finally, the breakthrough we’ve been looking for!
Why waste a perfectly good blowtorch on women when you could defrost a freezer with it?
Totally unexpected to see the Commander slip up like this – And hilarious.
Also a new, interesting detail about Jonesy… Explains why she doesn’t seem to flinch much around people covered in blood.
Set him on fire with your mind, touch him on the penis.
Oh god, an SMBC meme has started spreading.
at least it wasn’t whoopsy stabby
Come on baby, light my fire.
Come on baby light on fire.
Tryin’ to set the night on Fiaaare!
That’s how the song goes right?
Woooooah, this sex is on fire.
This is another song relating to fire and relationships. Enjoy.
Fire in the Disco
Fiirrrre in the TACO BELL
I’m burnin’ I’m burnin’ I’m burnin’ for youuuuuu…
(Now please extinguish me with your mind. Thanks much).
Have to add for the hell of it! Light up the night!
What, no love for “Burning Down the House” by the Talking Heads? ;)
I don’t want to set the world, on, fire…
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
Commander’s right, that’s one of the most important functions in society.
There are better things to set women on fire with.
I love how Jonesy looks all confident in the first panel, the look on her face and her body language, I hope that she will be the stepmother for the Commander’s kids one day, they’d make such a lovely couple!!
(ps: I’m an assistant butcher too! :-D )
As a ninja butcher, do you chop up the steaks without being seen?
I feel this way every time I go to work.
*grumbles about boss*
If only he was a tyre.
ahaha, yeah, I was disappointed I had to miss that at the After Dark Festival due to mold illness.
I was disappointed I had to miss it because Australia.
But I will find a way!
I gotta say, that’s actually kind of reassuring. The guy has access to space rifles and shit but kept his revenge fantasies on a purely impossible (for him) level. That’s almost saintly, considering what a lot of his co-workers are like. ~|3
Just wonderful! I love that she has such a cool job and she’s so self-assured. Honestly, I like her just as much as the commander. Awesome female characters rock!
So he doesn’t think of her as a hostile, but he recognises her as a woman.. eventually..
OMG TRUE LOVE
C’mon … every man’s ex-wife makes him hate all women for at least a little while. It’s only natural!
Haha I can dig that, Commander.
When people keep talking about how he’s a Gary Stu / mouthpiece character after this, I think they should be asked to incorporate this moment into their explanations. ‘Cause the implications would be hilarious.
Gotta be honest, I always thought of the girl as a mouthpiece character. Except that the girl doesn’t really do a lot, so I’d say it’s kinda a moot point.
Uh, she’s not. Like… at all. The cornerstones of her character are “Looks normal” and “Is not a bitch”. If that makes her a mouthpiece character then whatever, people have officially become too fucking sensitive about that kind of shit.
If they’ve got a mouth, they’re a mouthpiece character. If they don’t have a mouth but still have some means of communicating, they’re a mouthpiece character.
Then if this was drawn by a man, then isn’t the Commander the mouthpiece character, and having an interesting, attractive girl after him just wishful thinking? You can’t win.
That being said, Bella from ‘Twilight’ is the absolute definition of a Mary Sue.
If you create a character who is the same gender as you, it is obviously self-insertion. There are no exceptions to this. Obviously.
Creations are always influenced by creators. You can’t help but be biased
http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/589 please enjoy this long essay I wrote on the subject earlier this week.
In much the same way that “hipster” has come to mean “Character who wears clothes”, Gary Stu seems to be evolving into something that means “Lead character who is talented or likeable in any way”.
I’m finding that myself. People are a little too quick to throw out the “Mary Sue” label these days.
I am a repeat offender of that. Fortunately for everyone, I only slap them on my own characters… the instant I make them… I wonder if I have self-esteem issues…
Pfft, everyone knows you’re not supposed to LIKE your characters or give them any things they’re good at! The only way to make non-mary sue -characters is to not make characters at all, since if you make unlikable, untalented characters you make anti-sues and that’s annoying too.
I’ve always thought of hipsters as people who wear clothes that make me want to punch them for no rational reason and have really geeky discussions about zoning and mass transit.
… I may not know what a hipster is.
Those are just nerds.
Hipsters do the same thing, but “ironically”.
BUT THEY USE “IRONICALLY” IN A NON-IRONIC WAY!
I’ve noticed that hipsters use “ironically” in the place of “actually” or “literally”.
Sheesh. Can’t believe I had to step in myself to do this.
Don’t let it happen again.
That Ceolasquid wants to be The Human Torch? X3
Who the hell is Gary Stu? I don’t bother to learn character names in movies or games. Or the people I work with, or in-laws or at church or anyone other than my wife, kids and mom.
A Gary Stu is the male version of a Mary Sue or a super reader created uber character (to the extents of my knowledge)
He spontaneusly develops bags under the eyes when he gets angry! So cool! :)
Its just the shading to make it look a tad bit darker bro.
Wow… I love the Commander, and I love Jonesey… And this makes me laugh so hard! However, it is unforgiveable to distract me from my homework. >:( Stop being so good at it!!
At least he -tries- to recover. There’s hope yet!
Thank goodness he didn’t ask about the WEATHER, at least.
Well, I’m glad she’s hearing this NOW… And most definitely a flawless recovery.
And THAT’S why Commander Badass should switch to dating dudes instead <3
…No. The commander isn’t gay material. Like, at all.
I don’t see why he couldn’t be.
Funny you should say that … because the way I discovered this web comic was through a picture by the creator of the Commander that was posted on Y!gallery which is a website for posting Yaoi(Guy/Guy) art and fiction …
Honestly, I think that the Commander is set up in a way that the fans could pair him either way if they really wanted to
I just used to post all my art featuring dudes on Y!Gallery, to be honest.
And then there are some who would do so regardless of how he was actually set up (as you put it). :P
Love the whole “Hayyy… Change o’ topic” :D
I know the feeling….
Can I just say that you have amazing talent at expressions? Because the expressions in this particular comic? Are *brilliant*. Not that they aren’t normally. But I especially love the middle panels of these.
Hard-hearted harbinger of haggis?
Beautiful, bemused bellicose butcher?
Harty-hearted harbinger of heraldry, more like.
Commander Badass = Louis CK but not out of shape
And with that, he shows his geeky roots to her.
She has to figure, he’s been through a nasty divorce. She probably dragged him through the mud, she might have even come up with crap he didn’t do, just to give herself an edge. Such would break down anyone and make them angry at the opposite gender.
Still, as revenge fantasies go, he hasn’t done the macho shooting, strangling, knifing. No, he wanted to burn them with his mind. Geeky, as is right.
Pyrokinesis is far less incriminating.
It certainly involves less goat entrails and chicken blood than the ol’ hoodoo.
But now that he knows the (assistant) butcher, he can get a great rate on those raw materials! I say go for it.
Ways I sees it, the court systems (I assume most courts around the world function much like the US’s in this respect) tend to favor the mother for child custody. He obviously cares very much for his children, and probably had to go through hell to make sure that he had time with his children, seeing the personality of his ex-wife and all.
I’m sure most people would feel the same under the circumstances.
I’m kind of surprised that their relationship has advanced to the point where Jonesy is openly discussing why the Commander hasn’t put the moves on her yet.
Comic Time works differently to real time. It fluctuates a bit.
I realize that they’ve actually been hanging out for a while and transitioning into a quasi-romantic relationship — I suspect they’re on a date in this strip — but I’ve never seen Jonesy and the Commander share so much as a chaste kiss on the cheek while silhouetted by a massive explosion in the distance.
My first comment needed to be made towards this ^
HOW ELSE WOULD A FIRST KISS WITH THE COMMANDER GO?!?!
I love the emotional range in this one!
And I’m surprised that Sarah’s an assistant butcher. With that jacket, I was expecting her to be… I dunno… Like some cafe clerk, customer service person, waitress… anthropologist studying a specific urban niche… a naturalist on vacation (because everyone needs a break from their job no matter what it is)…
But then again the Commander is the head of a temp agency and he looks like an action movie protagonist, a bounty hunter, and/or a biker kinda, so just goes to show you shouldn’t presume a person’s profession based on their clothes!
(Kinda fun to though…)
It’s not her work outfit, just her casual walking-around-outside clothes.
Yeah I know, but that doesn’t stop me from trying.
So her work clothes would definetly be different… LOL I just imagined her dressed in a Pyramidhead style apron/clothing with a butcher knife in one hand, and dragging a rack of beef in the other!
One day I was at the market and there was a young blond guy walking around carrying half a cow. It was the most attractive thing I’d seen all day.
She’s cool-headed, she’s classy, she has a sense of humor and she prepares red meat for eating. She is indeed the perfect woman.
…..Well I’m glad at least the commander realizes how creepy that sounds.
That comment was so awesome I had to.
Oh yes, this comic is epic. Commander’s face is priceless.
I think you should have used insanity wolf. Also, the jar.
examples of acceptable alternatives:
great, awesome, amazing, the highlight of my week, etc.
Yeah, I thought so too.
But then I realized it wasn’t crazy enough for Insanity Wolf. It’s more a morale boost for her then just murderous rage.
It was for morale; she should totally do it. Just think: Pyramid Head would. :)
So I chose Courage Wolf.
This seems less than ambiguous to me. The location, her demeanor, his “small talky” response all say, albeit someone subtly, “This is a date, dear reader.”
Am I the only one that reads the Commander’s dialogue in Patrick Warburton’s voice?
OH MY FUCKING GOD
Now I am.
You’re not, because I hear it often enough that I have a section of my FAQ devoted to saying that Warburton’s voice is not the one I would choose for him at all, and that he would sound about as gravelly as you would expect a person who lives on a steady diet of cigars, coffee, and whiskey to. More along the lines of the Maxx with a Beetlejuice accent, or Nathan Explosion, or Clancy Brown’s Goon. Warburton’s voice hasn’t taken enough damage.
It’s funny that Warburton is known as a Voice Actor, when all he does is the same faux-‘cocky’ voice in everything, and it’s not an interesting or funny voice to start with. Contrast with Dr. Orpheus: the delivery makes every line golden.
You just know the network is gonna suggest Jonah Hill or Jay Burachel for Jared.
I really like Warburton as a voice actor, but I don’t like him for every character. In my mind the Commander sounds like the kinda guy who has to cough up a ball of phleghm and tobbacco ashes when he wakes up every morning, and that’s not Warburton.
I imagine Ron Pearlman for the Commander. He’s more the kind of guy to say an annoyed ah crap than Warburton can pull off.
Good to see you enjoy Warburton as much as I.
…a thought just occurred to me, Brock Sampson in your comic? Even as just a cameo?
Please don’t say he isn’t manly.
As I tell everyone who has been suggesting him since day one, Brock Samson is more or less already a genre parody. Putting him in a genre parody comic kind of negates the “parody” aspect and just turns into blatant copyright violation. It’s more or less the same deal with Saxton Hale, who comes up in my inbox quite a bit as well.
lol, yeah commander, very smooth :)
Oh dear. I think the Commander’s gonna need a moment to get over this. Maybe a Twix too.
This is great by my canada guy blood levels are droping i think we need more canada guy
I think it would be awesome if the commander turned out to be a closet Aquacadet :)
I don’t know what that word means, so he probably isn’t.
I did a search for Aquacadet and clicked the link to the Aquabats wiki. Apparently they are fans of the Auqabats band. They also must enjoy asinine web sites that pop up advertising windows all over the hell. I now hate Aquabats and Aquacadets.
Twenty bucks says she’s actually a cleaner for the mob and her family-run gorcery store has sold gangsters off by the pound since the prohibition.
Explains why she hasn’t removed the Head Butcher; he’s her Uncle Liam.*
*Formerly Lucky Liam, formerly Liam the Slice, Formerly Lefty Lee…
Yep. The family that slays together stays together.
Tis a little known fact that a Mr. Fish pokemon card was once made. It was soon deemed to amazing for retail and was recalled.
I…just needed to make this. I made a deviantart acc just so i could post this :3
And I just had to fave that |D
Awkward silence GO!
How long is the Commander going to be missing that tooth that he lost when Sten went apeshit? I’d think he’d find a way to replace it.
Real men show off their missing teeth from brawls?
Replacing teeth is expensive and largely pointless.
He didn’t lose it when Sten hit him, it’s been missing since the comic started.
The gap is deliberate. He used to use a false tooth to store emergency tools. Never eliminate the chance for back-up gear.
Oh that last panel.
I won’t get over that fit of laughter for awhile.
The bridge of the commander’s nose is becoming increasingly huge, especially in relation to the tip.
It looks like a little shoe kicking his face in the second panel… huh? That was sort of a joke but now I really can’t unsee it. LOL.
I’ve been doing this comic for nearly a year, I’m just getting better at drawing the characters the way I want them to look.
If you want to perpetuate their relationship fine, but no tasteless miscarriage jokes. It’s been done…and it didn’t go well ;)
Frankly, I’m kind of insulted that you would even compare my work to that.
Quick! To the bat-Photoshop!
Without getting into comparisons of quality or whatnot, there’s no real way to mix up your work with Buckleys.
Except apparently for the Buckley hatedom (of which I am not a member, for the record, nor do I fanboi for him), where everything is in comparison to him, regardless of whether or not there’s any real connection.
wtf is he talking about?
Ctrl+Alt+Dlt’s abortion of a miscarriage story.
I see what you did there.
Clever word usage.
Was the funniest part of the entire comic.
I guess for some people the day isn’t complete (or started, depending on preferences) without a pointless, totally unrelated jab at Buckley’s miscarriage storyline.
I just wish they stuck to web comic comment sections I don’t read. :P
For some reason, or rather, for no reason, I am very suddenly reminded of the pledge from Possum Lodge at the end of every Red Green episode.
“I’m a man, but I can change… if I have to… …I guess.”
You left out the “I’m sorry” part.
Pleasure to Burn.
The Commander should try and get one of the manly men a job at the Butcher’s, so they can find out more about her. I vote for Pyramid Head or Voldo from Soul Calibur.
Pyramid Head seconded.
A closed mouth gathers no feet.
…and girls wonder why guys try to stick to one-word answers, It’s a survival mechanism.
It isn’t a survival mechanism. Female disapproval is not fatal. Not getting laid does not equate to death. ¬_¬
You’d be amazed how much less threatening women are when you don’t want something from them… (a factor which, surprisingly, also applies to men).
We’ve all been there at least once.
I think Pyramid Head would be a BIG mistake. I’m pretty sure he would just rape her/kill her… after all, thats what he does in all the games he is in… rape and kill.
Maybe kill her with rape?
But she already knows that a brisk walking pace is her best defence, so I think she’ll be fine!
I’ve read about that before, but god I loled so hard when I read it.
for the record, my comment was in reply to @Master Of Waffles… something ended up messed up though
Thanks to her job now I will see her making BBQ’S every weekend, working alongside Pyramid Head for the butcher and with bloody clothes and gloves smiling… Thanks :D
The commander looks strange in the last two panels. I dunno, somethign just seems off about his proportions.
Las panel he’s kinda janky, but the second last one seems fine to me. Unless you mean the this-is-my-face-saving-face face he’s making.
Something about the arms specifically in the second last one. I can’t quite put my finger on it though.
Um. Okay. I’m not sure what else you expect me to say, honestly.
Hm… Anyone remember that guy, Rion, from Galerians?
He shot up drugs and stuff for the power to set people on fire, amongst others.
Yeah, he could light women on fire…
Hay, I was reading through the extras and I was wondering: why didn’t some of them make it to the main comic? The power of metal one in particular was hilarious… even if you’ve already used a permutation of that joke.
I did most of them years before I’d even thought of starting this comic.
Ah, that would make sense then… they were still halarious though. The first one is still making me laugh.
jonesey’s just keepin’ it cool.
Heh, two steps forward, one step back. And this guy is probably the sanest of the testosterone poisoning cases. Still, I can see a relationship forming.
I half expected his coffee to explode into a clout of fire for a minute.
Assistant butchers, aren´t they all?
Hmm, setting women on fire with my mind, now there´s a happy thought.
And that´s all for todays solemn misogyny minute.
This time next week, why women hate nice guys and always go for the assholes..
*Looks at new comic*
*4 day old comic has nearly 250 comments*
woooow. Good job, i’m impressed!
Back on topic, I would very much like to be able to set women on fire with my mind… and men… and various small animals/bugs. (Watching a horsefly burst into flames? Priceless)
Why isn’t this a fully animated huge budgeted cartoon on Fox yet? Somebody’s got to replace The Cleveland Show. Hell, make it an hour long, get rid of American Dad, too.
Oh god, anything but Fox. I’d go for Adult Swim, hands down.
… If I still had cable.
Huge budgets will only screw this up. First they’ll be: “Oh you’ll get all the freedom!” and then it’ll be “Yeaaaaaaah, the board doesn’t think this will apply to the target audience of the show so we’re gonna change this a bit…” and then you’ll end up with something without the SEASNAKE OF AWESOME.
You know, for men to say “to be brutally honest” to a woman, takes a quantum leap of trust. The third panel is genuine embarrasment (and a healthy dose of “please don’ t run to the street screaming murder”) of course. Silly girl, the dumb block just wanted a warm and big hug. And about the … shall we say… boudouir invitation, for what it looks like, you are getting there, getting there…
A butcher huh? Damn she’s more manlier than me!
THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS NOT PLATONIC. She follows him around and seems interested in knowing more about him and his crazy life. She asks him out to get a drink one night. (Squid lady totally says: “Yeah, I realize Commander just turned down a date for D&D, but we can get to that later. And besides, you just don’t bail on your boys like that.” It was a date.)
They’re sitting there drinking coffee together. Alone. She says she’s surprised he hasn’t invited her back to his place. They are not children, they are not teenagers, they are adults. In this context, man, that is totally her saying, “I will rock your world, Commander Badass.”
Dude earlier was right. This thought process is what a girl would call “dense” or “clueless”. COME ON, MAN. U:<
