Billie knows LOTS of words!
Like… nerd and… nerdette!
Poor Billie, just wants to be as cool as Jonah Jamison.
Billie: “That Amazi-girl is a MENACE TO SOCIETY!”
Billie:”I want pictures of Amazi-Girl”
With a chest window. For a nickel.
And if she doesn’t have one, we will photoshop one on her.
Billie: “Everytime somebody says her name I want a nickel”
From their mother.
“Amazi-girl: Threat or Menace?”
Daisy is Jamison.
“I want pictures of Amazi-Girl! Hot sweaty battle damage pictures!”
Daisy wants to be Lois Lane.
Does that make Dorothy Jimmy Olsen?
Surely Dorothy is Bizarro? Or Ben Reilly, I lost track of superhero analogies.
DAMMIT I NEED PICTURES OF
IS A MENACE
You think as a Journalist Billie would notice Walky going all weird when Dorothy is around but no
This Walky seems like the kind of guy who won’t generally stop with the smart ass-isms. Billie might thank Dorothy for getting him to be quiet for a few minutes.
She noticed one time before…
It took me 2 read-throughs to notice Walky.
This is awesome with the avatar in context.
(I want my Dina back… :()
You’re assuming she gives a damn about what he does when its not in direct relation to her.
Walky, c’mon. Pull it together already. Either your face is going to freeze like that or you’re going to leave permanent indentations in your lip. Maybe both.
Sorry, “your FAAAAAACE.” My bad.
How did he make it all the way to college without any of his peers noticing that FAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE
By threatening to break their FEMURS perhaps?
These memes are so babies.
Very shakeable babies.
One too far. Just hit “dude, not funny” territory.
I guess you won’t be wanting to hear any dead baby jokes then.
The correct phrase is “Babies McIntyre” I believe
Walky in panel 2 slays me!
The look in Walky’s face in panel 2 is hilarious.
I’m guessing Walky will be asking Billie all about her nerdy reporter friend.
What if Billie named superheroes? Spider-Man=Bug-Nerd! Iron Man=Robot Nerd!
batman = orphan nerd!
Superman will be Reporter Nerd! Billie loves making the superheroes uncomfortable by giving them names that reference their secret identities.
Bonus points if you can guess who all the above are.
Hmm, “Busty Nerdette.” So that would be a super-heroine with a large chest. That narrows it down to… well, all of them.
(I’m guessing you mean Wonder Woman, though with the recent discussion of chest windows there are some other possibilities — possiBILLIEties? — there as well.)
Wonder Woman? No, there is one super hero known exclusively for her chest. Powergirl’s window is famous.
Wonder Woman wasn’t included. Greek Nerd! sounded stupid.
Was going to include a list of super heroines that aren’t busty, but then it occurred to me that all but two of them have a spider theme.
“Wonder Woman wasn’t included. Greek Nerd! sounded stupid.”
Amazon Nerd, of course.
Or “Lasso Nerd”, if you wanted something less positive-sounding than “Amazon”.
I’ll take a shot…
Water Geek! = Aquaman
Busty Nerdette! = Power Girl
Tentacle Nerd! = Doctor Octopus?
Captain Nerdica! = Captain America
Magic Nerd! = Doctor Strange
Gun Nerd! = Deadpool? Or Punisher…
Shocking Nerd! = Electro? Static? Thor?
Angry Nerd! = Hulk
Nerd Side! = Darkseid
Blind Nerd! = Daredevil
Metal Nerd! = Iron Man
All but two.
Shocking Nerd! = Black Lightning(Static’s close)
Metal Nerd! = Cyborg
And the Punisher for Gun Nerd
Robin = The Geek Wonder
The one superhero Billie doesn’t consider to be a nerd is Cheerleadra from El Goonish Shive.
But everyone else in that webcomic is a nerd or a furry.
Dude, nice refrenz! Shade Tail would probably be Nerd of Furry!
What would his name be? black cloaked nerd?
Noah would be One-Eyed Nerd. (o_W)
… That is so right…
The LARP Avenger?
Wait! Wait! Can Billie be Cheerleadra?!
Only if there is a EGS crossover planned.
Booster Gold used to be a pro athlete, so maybe he’d get a pass, too. (Though the time traveling and the robot and the friendship with Blue Beetle probably cancel it out.)
Leave Mister Dresden’s car out of this.
Billie isn’t one-note, she’s two-note. She’s got a superiority complex and she’s alcoholic. Thus far, that seems to be all there is to her. Hopefully, with time, Billie will become an entire concert.
Of course, Dorothy probably doesn’t know about the alcoholism yet, so her calling her “one-note” is justified.
You forgot anger problems. That’s three notes.
No, Four Notes, she can spell words with her body.
Yeah, but in terms of how she addresses everyone, she is distinctly one note.
Billie isn’t one note. She can call people nerds in 47 different languages.
Psh. That’s nuthin’. I know this guy that can do it in over 3 million forms of communication.
What a nerd!
Technically that’s still all one note. After all, if you play a song in different languages, the musical notes and meaning behind them are still the same.
Love Walky’s expression. He’s just begging for a cat fight.
I think the idea of Billie in that context would not be appetizing to Walky. Dorothy with someone else though…
I am not one note, shut your FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!
Dorothy’s going to direct Billie to one of the people who saw Amazi-Girl? Why I got the feeling that the person in question would be Danny?
uhh… cuz she said she would?
Because that’s exactly what Dorothy said she would be doing when she spoke to Danny?
Maybe because just two comics ago Dorothy mentioned that she was sending Danny “a big-breasted half-Asian girl to interview [him] about Amazi-Girl”?
Triple ninja’d! Where’s Ninja Rick when you need him?!?
In a three-way duel with the Ninja-Style Dancer and Kung Tai Ted.
Last I saw Ninja-Style Dancer and Kung Tai Ted, they were headed off to do a dance-off. Does Ninja Rick dance?
Ninja Style Dancer was taken by The Entity.
I’d totally take it on myself to do that as a reporter regardless of the superheroe’s wishes. I’d also choose names that were only vaguely thematically appropriate and potentially ill fitting.
Captain America and Bucky are now Guns and Ammo.
Batman and Robin shall be referred to as Darky McBlackerson and the Crimson Fruitcake.
Superman? Nay, I say we call him “Better-than-you Guy”
Silver Surfer shall simply answer to AnthroSpaceCore.
But Captain America is a title. He is an officer in the U.S. Army.
And that Batman one might be seen as racist by some people. I’m sure I’ve heard the Robin one before though, same with Superman.
Really? We’re expecting people to call racism for referring to a man’s wardrobe coloration and chosen theme as a creature of the night now? I don’t even know how to respond to that, but I’ll certainly apologize if I’ve offended anyone. Not looking to make an issue out of it. Meant it to be far more harmless and humorous than that.
I didn’t say it was offensive, I was saying it could really be taken that way.
Besides, it’s a mouthful.
I’d certainly be worried about confusion if Bruce wasn’t white. Is that less well known than I’m giving it credit for?
I’d hope it’s not well known in universe. I honestly don’t think it’d matter to the readers of the comic. Cause really, if you saw a news article talking about this new hero Darky McBlackerson, wouldn’t you think something was wrong there?
Ah, I get it. You’re talking about readers of the imaginary newspaper in which this name would be used. Yeah, ok. That’s legit. I hadn’t actually thought it through to such an extent. There’s a reason none of these articles were published
For that matter, Batman doesn’t seem like the type with a sense of humor (well at least not in most recent renditions). I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to poke fun at him on principle. Captain America also kind of scares me XD.
I totally thought we were talking about other commenters here.
Wolverine is now Petunia.
Why not That Furry Guy?
His name might be Petunia but HE STILL BADASS!
(Not to be confused with antro Face Core)
Walky’s face is is priceless
Yes his faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Oh Walky, you’re adorable.
Billie, you should be more grateful to people who save you from supervillains. It’s just good manners.
“Grateful? Why would I be grateful, I could’ve taken on that Red Menace myself.”
The Red Menace? Who, Ruth? She wants to take your FEMURS and use it as a back-scratcher.
“Of cause I could take her, she’s a NERRRRRD and I’m a cheerleader”
Yes, a nerd that just thrown you on your first day and took your cheerleader outfit and removing one letter just to spite you.
And then Billie realised that when everyone’s a Nerd… …No-one is.
And then Billie is a NERD! Dundundun!
In the old days, just wearing glasses automatically made you a NERD!
“No Billie, you are the nerds.”
“That ginger nerd just got lucky is all!”
Man, Billie’s glad she’s so much better off than them.
Cos being popular and all, she has way more friends than all these geeks and nerds …err nevermind…
I’ve never seen being popular correlate to having friends. It was more of a being noticed as opposed to being liked.
I think Plasma Mongoose is being sarcastic.
Correct! I was speaking to some extent IC for Billie.
I was well aware. Sometimes it’s more fun to ignore that instinct to respond with all the intellectual knowledge.
The intellectual knowledge – IN THE BAG! NOW!! ALL OF IT!!!
Dude, all of it? That bags just not big enough.
When it comes to her view of people different then her…yeah, one note work.
No your FAAAACE is one note!
It could be me but Dorothy face in panel 3 looks cute.
Walky, no stare at the boobies. I know it can be difficult at times, man, but you just have to snap out of the trance, or lest you’ll turn to stone. Or something. Mostly you’ll just get mace sprayed in your face.
Seriously, though, Walky’s unintentional placement of his “deer-in-headlights” gaze is HILARIOUS.
How do we know it’s not intentional?
Who said that Walky is staring at Dorothy’s boobs?
Really looks more like he’s staring at Dorothy’s hair to me.
Is a man not entitled to the goofy look on his FAAAAAAAACE?
NO, says Billie! He’s a nerd!
NO, says Dorothy! He’s weird!
NO, says Mike! Your mom made that FAAACE on his penis for a nickel!
I chose something different. Something impossible. I chose… Walky!
Oh great, I’m now picturing DoA characters as BioShock characters.
Walky’s so fun to make demots of.
Do a Walky?
I think he’d like Dorothy to do a Walky…
Wild Dorothy appeared! Walky froze up!
I think Billie is trying to hide something by making fun of nerds…
She secretly has Nerd-Lust!
Is it perverse?
It’s ALWAYS perverse
Also, your Joe Gravatar makes your comment ridiculously appropriate.
It means she lusts after nerds. She is so going to want a threesome with Danny and Amber when she meets them.
Billie is actually into Transformers! She’s the secret nerd this go around, not Joe!
That works, too.
NAh I think that Sailor Moon would be more of her sort of Guilty Secret.
Glad Billie didn’t get Lois Lane’s job in the new DC Relaunch. “LOOK UP IN THE SKY! IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! ITS THE FLYING NERD!” just would’t have the same ring to it…
But ‘bird’ and ‘nerd’ rhyme! You can’t beat that.
IT’S A NERD! IT’S A PAIN! IT’S…AMAZI-DORK!
Walky/Amazi-Girl. Shipping it now. Three hundred episodes (and two and a half hours) later, when it happens, remember Blob Marley totally called it.
Didn’t even realise Walky was in the strip until I glanced at the tags >_<
His Dorothy Face made it worth looking at the Tags I bet.
The nerdette is my penis.
Did Dorothy just replace Billie in the header?
Actually it happened a couple of days ago.
Personally, I like Billie’s expression (and posture) of visionary determination in the last panel.
I think Billie missed out on a very important lesson in high school. That lesson being “Be nice to nerds. Chances are, you’ll end up working for one.”
I think I will ship Billie and Ogre(Revenge of the Nerds) now.
So… will the banner be changing regularly to indicate which characters are currently in centre stage?
It wouldn’t be too hard for him to do, the odds are that he already has the templates for various characters ready to use with the background for the banner, so if he decides to change it, it will only take a couple of minutes.
Dorothy in panel 3 is probably my favorite picture of her. Great work!
