Oh c’mon Billy. Joyce is not that bad.
Asking your ‘best friend’ to remove icky clumps of hair for them isn’t good, I can tell you now.
Well, Billie could say no.
Yeah but still…
a best friend never asks another best friend to remove strange clumps of hair
Then again, Joyce is kind of rushing in to this best friend business. Shouldn’t you have to be friends with the person for at least a month then you can call that person your best friend? Then again it could be just me.
Well, I think she’s working off a one-sided perspective here. Billie’s one of the few people in college that she considers a friend, and as such, she would be about her ‘best’ college friend simply for lack of anyone else to fill the position. That and well, she reeeeeally doesn’t wanna touch that hair clump.
You mean Joyce is the only person Billie can consider a friend :p her and Walky anyway.
What about Dorothy? Or does the atheism knock her off the top slot?
Dorothy is an acquaintance, I guess.
Not just you, it’s only been a couple of days, too soon to call BBFs.
Don’t you mean BFF’s? Or you meant Best Buxom Friends?
Would that make them Bosom Buddies?
Literally in this case.
What Joyce says is: “We’re friends, right?” [no 'best' to be seen there] then “Would you say that *so far* I’m your best college friend?” [again, not even saying they're _good_ friends, just that Joyce is the best Billie has at the moment]
A best friend never asks a best friend, but who says that Joyce considers Billie HER best friend…?
As opposed to, what, asking a total stranger to do it?
Really? I thought girls helped eachother wax those hard to reach spots.
Yes. Yes she is.
“Well, it’s okay if you actually, literally can’t remove the hair. I was just asking.”
That’s not true! That’s impossible!
DO NOT WANT!
Billie’s gotta be getting close to passing Joe for the top banner, right?
Actually, it seems she has. With today’s comic, she’s at 67 while Joe is 66.
Joe needs more love.
Joe needs more chances to ‘joe’ more.
Yeah, what happened to the poor wingless wingman?
Not gonna say it this time….
With his penis. Dammit.
Oh man that looks like some sort of Mega Man Chocobo! Nice.
Thanks! But wow. I made that image about seven years ago and I never noticed that I used the same colors. I’m almost ashamed, considering that Mega Man is probably my favorite video game series!
It’s only appropriate because Billie and Joyce are getting closer together in the comic as well.
Panel 5 Joyce is my favourite Joyceface so far.
What about the Panel 5 Billie face?
Well Panel 1 definitely has the best Grace face so far.
Either she’s got amazing lips, or that is some really water-resistant makeup.
Maybe it’s her super power and she’s in Amazi-Girl’s rogue gallery!
Maybe it’s just Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor.
Or maybe she’s born with it.
Cut, cut! You guys got it all wrong. It’s “Maybe she’s born with it”, THEN “Maybe it’s Maybelline”. Okay, Take 2. And, action!
Maybe she’s just a vampire.
I can’t honestly say I have a favorite Joyceface. I like them all. I think it’s the crazy blue eyes that make every Joyceface ridiculously cute and humorous at the same time. But I guess maybe not, Joyce have been my favorite Walkyverse (and now Dumbiverse) character since the beginning of It’s Walky! and like 95% of those were black and white. I guess I’m just biased.
Joyce is my best friend too, oddly enough.
I think Joyce just did a more effective job of breaking Billie than Ruth.
my condolences to Billie
I feel so incredibly sorry for her right now.
And that’s scary.
Very scary, indeed.
“I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.”
Just take a few deep beaths and think about shipping characters.
How is it these two keep getting fantastic final panels? How does this keep happening?
Yes, that. Thank you. :3
What an adorable strip, thanks Mr Willis
Com’on Billie that’s not true. You got Walky!
And Billie is rendered catatonic with horror.
Someone needs to Photoshop Walky’s “OMGprettygirl” face on to Billie now.
Is this photoshop below, the right FAAAACE?
Not quite. Needs more zombie.
I like the idea that this might be your professional opinion as a gender studies prof.
In this universe Joyce and Walky are still a great pair, but they need a bit of a buffer. That’s where Billie comes in.
Mistakenly thought this was Youtube, tried to vote this comment up about 6 times before I realized I couldn’t and got sad.
Thank you hahaha.
BBFs that shower together, STAY together.
Shippers, START YOUR ENGINES.
Oh, trust me, they’ve already started.
I was under the impression that they were already several laps into the race.
Yeah, this is just gonna add some extra TURBO.
Yeah, they’ve started their engines. And the ones that replaced the originals after those got thrashed to death. What they’re doing now is getting the third set going . Pit crews are already prepping the next lot…
Wow, and we thought Joyce wouldn’t learn the ways of the world. She picked up on “taking advantage of your friends” pretty quickly!
Willis, you have slowly been restoring my faith in webcomics since you started DoA. Thank you.
That is why no shower kit is complete without tweezers.
…or perhaps a ten foot pole.
Tongs work too.
no inventory is complete without a 10 foot pole
Awwwww, I remember when I first realized who my best friend is. It was similarly terrifying.
Hopefully I’ll never have to experience this – I’ve sucessfully avoided such for over 4 decades, so I think I’m safe. =]
I think I had that effect on someone once. It was interesting from my persective.
The day I realized who my best friend was, I was super happy. “OMG I’m best friends with this super amazing person!” Though she may only seem super amazing because she’s my best friend. Ah well. I stand by my exclamation.
Come now, it’s not THAT bad, Billie. You could have Roz as your best friend.
OMG Joyce’s eyes are huge! Is she puppyfying them on purpose to get what she wants?
She will need those skills for when she shills the Chick Tracts.
You know the saying…
IT’S A TRACT!
That one right?
But of course!
Really? I did’t notice Sal anywhere.
Ah, but you forget something. If there are more shower scenes, that will mean more scenes in general. And if there’s more scenes, there’s a greater chance of having Sal in various forms of undress in one of these scenes.
Huh. It took surprisingly little time to catch up on this from my viewing months ago.
It’s a bit like a soap opera in that respects, only about 4-5 have passed in DoA time.
“It’s just a little hair clump…”
It’s not just a little hair clump. It is someone else’s little hair clump.
I think there’s a porno script to be written somewhere in this scene.
It’s the all-girls wing of a dorm, OFF COURSE there is a porn script to be written :p
I feel for you Joyce. It is icky.
But you have to man up and do it yourself. Even if your a germphobe, and the first five times consisted of running back to your dormroom and hiding.
Not talking from personal experience. At all.
Somebody with a gender studies professor gravitar needs to comment on you telling Joyce to “man up”.
“Joyce, you really REALLY need to grow a pair.”
A pair of what prey tell.
A big pair of ovaries.
Or a big pair of boobs. As opposed to the average pair she already has.
Boobs Of Steel no less.
I knew it! I knew IT WAS A TRACT!
Billie’s face in panel 5 is hilarious. (not using the meme since I don’t remember its origin well enough)
But yeah, Joyce, you don’t ask your best friend to get hair clumps for you. Best friends make you do it yourself. Even if it’s someone else’s, it’s just sitting there. Not like it got in your food or drink or something.
Trust me Joyce, it could be much much worse. Take it from a guy who’s spent 13 years cleaning part time. If it gets too bad, invest in latex (gloves that is).
Or use sex as a bargaining tool for cleaning. That might work too.
Are the showers at IU actually like that? Even at my boarding high school every room had it’s own shower, though not always very big.
I don’t know about IU, but at my college they’re all stalls like that.
Alright, tag counter says it’s quite literally time to take Joe down a peg.
Come on, Willis, Joe has been staring smugly down from that glorious number two-spot for too long!
But he’s number 3. Patrick McGoohan is Number Six.
Be seeing you.
I wish Joyce was my best friend, I don’t even mind clumps of hair.
This is easy to fix. You and Joyce fly to Éire and you both go visit Craggy Island. You leave Joyce on the front step of the parochial house with a note, ring the bell and then run like hell. The best part is she’ll never be able to leave, because no one escapes from that mental hell hole.
It’s like the Village in a way.
Grace get her first three word.
Grace gets her first three words.
Oh wow, this comic is full of references:
Also, the new banner: great. Billie and Joe leering at each other. Marvelous.
One is leering. The other appears to be about to break into a snarl.
Either way, it’s a great combination.
Let’s look at this honestly, Billie. Did you really need the horror face for Joyce being your best friend? You could, you know, not have friends at all.
I think part of the problem is not being sure which option is more horrifying :p.
My god, Joyce’s eyes are bluuuuuuuuue. It’s like she’s sucking blueness out of the entire room and absorbing them into her eyes.
Of course! That must be the source of her powers! Or maybe it’s like that paint commercial where the painter’s eyes suddenly turn blue!
I find it cute that this has just dawned on Billie. Now let’s see how long it takes her to figure out that -she- is the problem for having only one real friend now… =D
Alright, Joe and Billie in the banner? Perfect. Simply Perfect.
What’s a mysterious hair clump between SBFs? If your shower buddy won’t remove it, who will?
Wow. That last panel has some GREAT emotion. Good job, Willis.
Aaaaand my icon makes it look like I’m being sarcastic…damn you, random icon giving computer!
It’s what best friends do.
wait best friends…..
Does this mean the two of them become Cure Black and Cure White?
Hahahaha, bellie your pathetic
