I have some new Amber and Billie arts on my Tumblr, if you’re interested! EDIT: And a quick redo of the Amber already, because I’m fickle.
I know, I love when he specifically says “I’m not dense”.
If he were any denser, a black hole will form.
Then he’d be much more attractive.
A black hole is no more attractive than anything else of the same mass at a given distance. It just lets that distance be a whole lot less.
You win science reference.
Yay! A pocket protector!
So, for now, he’s just a neutron star?
He might even give off radio signals and everything…
This is incredibly funny to me after the “reading the signals” line.
Well he sure as hell ain’t receiving them.
The density means that any signal just reflects off of him like an echo.
To fair, if you go with the original black hole idea, not a single bit of the signal which hits him would reflect. The massive gravitational force of a block hole does not allow energy to leave. But then, that wouldn’t make for a fact that has an easy joke spinoff.
You are reluctantly forgiven.
Now, to be fair, he got the signals that Amber was interested. HE just hasn’t figured out she and Sal, I mean Amazi-Girl, are the same person.
Like a neutron star.
Yeah, it’s not like you’ll even FIND Sal to date her!
The appropriateness of the gravatar is amazing.
Poor, dumb bastard.
So, will Danny be putting himself in danger to get Amazi-Girl’s attention à la the second Twilight movie?
Or how about SILVER AGE LOIS LANE?
Kids these days, amirite?
*puts on joke explainer hat*
It’s funny because I was born almost 20 years after the Silver Age of comics ended.
Don’t Explain The Joke or the next time, I will trope you.
He’d do it, man. He would.
Naturally, troping is Serious Business you know. 😀
Everytime someone explains the joke a comedian rolls over in his grave.
Everytime a comedian rolls over in his grave, all the maggots afound will ask him what the hell he just did and what that was supposed to mean.
Silly, curious maggots.
So maybe we should exploit the rolling comedians for (presumably cheap) energy.
Kimiko Ross, is that you?!
Ha! I wish.
So was I, but even then it happened pretty often enough…
I get Ragnal’s reference. I have no idea what Wonder Wig is talking about…
So Lois Lane is just as bad as Bella?
even as a Marvelite this makes me cringe
Lois Lane’s true love is journalism!
Bella is a fool that thinks stalking is love. Lois Lane, usually, is getting attention for a story.
VERY different motivations.
Depends on which Lois Lane. The Lois Lane in the crazy portions of the Silver Age was motivated mostly by trapping Superman into marrying her.
You say that like there were non-crazy portions of the Silver Age.
ow ow ow ow… oh the pain can’t stand the pain
I have no words. My words have failed me.
DAMN YOU WORDS!!!
Danny’s brain has failed him.
It seems to have been doing that a lot lately. it’s not very dependable.
He needs a better OS.
They should’ve sent a poet…
“hang out with her”.
DUDE. When have you EVER “hung out with” Amazi-Girl? She saved your ass ONCE. Have you seen her since then? (was he at the party, or in the hallway when AG saved Billie from Ruth?)
Oh god Danny.
You’re so dense I want to deliver a Gibbs slap on you so badly.
I second, third, fourth and fifth that.
I [insert next number in sequence] that.
I Fibonacci that!
No, no, no. Don’t do that, because then Danny would try to hit on Abby, and she’s farrr too awesome for him.
This looks like a job for…!
Craigslist to the rescue!
Does anyone ever actually reconnect that way? It just seems so vanishingly unlikely that two people, however well they connected, both think to go to that page…
I have heard no first hand accounts of it working.
*risks being troped by mongoose*
Hence the joke.
You Dodged The Bullet this time.
Way to read the signals Danny!
Amber for your own safety never get into a car with him.
He’d probably drive off a cliff saying “I know exactly where we’re going!”
Danny if your face had a life that had a face I’d punch it.
Oh god… this is too great.
If Danny was a DnD character, his INT must be the dump stat.
I believe wisdom would be a more appropriate skill as perception and sense motive are based on Wisdom.
Either way, he muct have rolled a 1 on his d20.
Wouldn’t be Danny’s first critical fumble.
Damn unlucky dice.
Clearly, he didn’t make appropriate sacrifices to the dice gods.
He should have pre-rolled the 1s out of them.
Not the brightest bulb in the box, are ye, Danny?
To me, the most hilarious thing about this strip is Danny thinking he has a chance with a superhero.
…Actually, the most hilarious thing is that he kind of does.
You’re right, that is funny.
Well, he DID have a chance…
Danny CLEARLY has a high oppinion of himself. He just looks in the mirror and goes, “I’m kind and trustworthy and any girl, super or otherwise, would be crazy not to date me”
Actually, it may be that he will never get the connection.
Oh Danny. You are so depressingly unintuitive that it wraps all the way back around to hilarious.
With his level of density, he might even have a gravitational pull to rival DD-cup breaats, now that’s impressive.
“Oh yeah, and don’t take this the wrong way, but Amazi-girl is WAY prettier than you. also, taller, stronger, and faster.
…Because you are different people, see? Totally not you in disguise.”
And, unlike you, she’s immune to criticism.
Is Amber… possibly implying that she’s got some kind of advanced knowledge of Amazi-Girl’s whereabouts and actions?
Wait! I get it now! Amazi-Girl must be… Amber’s roommate!
With all that practice hiding behind doors and things.
I want to throttle Danny.
I second, third and fourth this sentiment and it’s now my slogan for the upcoming election.
Most people lines go something like “Oh Danny, you idiot. I’ll throw a rock at your face! (in your face)(for a nickle)”…
Don’t you notice he IS actually right? AG DID chase the criminals because she liked him… the only problem is that he didn’t notice Amber and AG are one and the same.
Besides that, he is totally right.
You know what? If Amber is smart, she’ll do something kickass in front of Danny as AG, then when he tries to talk to her, she does a big reveal.
But that’s not what she’s going to do. She’s probably going to go into a WoW-coma.
Or she has AG be an asshole to him instead
Yeah, that wouldn’t surprise me. AMAZI-GIRL GOES ROUGE?!
(and Sal ends up back in juvvie because of it)
I think Amazi-Girl looks fine without make-up.
I believe the word you want is rogue not rouge.
Last comic I was suspecting she was going to casually mention that she happens to be friends with Amazigirl, and proceed to set them up.
But now I think he blew even that one.
I’m hoping to see Amber get frustrated as all hell before finally outing herself to Danny, only to have him respond “I know.”
Femurs for a nickel.
70 comics later: “Hmm? I knew the whole time. I was just messing with you.”
So DoA Danny has become Lois Lane?
Lois Danniel… sound good enough.
Oh Silly Danny… How can you not realize the obvious?
Surely Amazi-Girl will be too involved in her crime-fighting career to pursue a relationship with you! Tsk-tsk. Silly Danny.
I’d be very very impressed if you DID manage to be around Amber and Amazagirl at the same time. That’d be awesome!
If one day she shows up in a half Amazi-girl/Amber outfit, she could turn and face him one side at a time and he would do a “Where did Amazi-girl/Amber go, she was JUST here?”
Geez, superheroes always end up with someone who figures their identity out for themselves (Batman & Tim Drake for example). So Amazigirl will be with Billie.
Actually, I’m pretty sure super-heroes always end up with the person who needs to be told their secret ID. Superman and Lois. Batman and Catwoman. Tim Drake and Spoiler. etc…
I think if they figure out the identity for themselves, they usually end up leaving the hero after a certain point (“I can’t deal with this anymore, boo-hoo”). Or dying. Or getting their marriage erased by Satan…
….And again your everyman continues to be a chump. Such a shame.
Youre not dense Danny, you’re stupid lol
The love interest falls for your alterego.
Thinks the real you is a bit of a doofus and hits you with a friendzone piledriver.
This is how you know you’ve ‘arrived’ as a superhero.
All she needs now is a nemesis.
I nominate ‘rapist guy’, but he’ll have to start wearing a cape.
Nah, he’s got the perfect scar now. No need for a cape.
Danny is too stupid to live.
There are two ways to screw up, seeing a pattern where none exists, and not seeing a pattern where it exists.
Billie did the former. Danny did the latter.
Is it wrong to think both are amusing?
I know, he will become Amazi-Girls sidekick. And she will call his character Oblivious-Boy, and he will never understand why.
this will only end in blood sweat and an inordinate amount of tears.
OH MY GOD FUCK YOU DANNY.
Your density knows no bounds!
He frustrates me, yet I still laugh.
I love the gender-swapped superman romance going on, too funny.
no san diego comic-con, the sorries
Who should get doodled inside Dumbing of Age Book 5?
