Everything includes your face.
But I must…
You mean your FAAAAAAAACE?
With her penis.
for a nickel. are we done now.
your mom was, for a nickel.
Femurs. Live. Butts.
All hail DAB. All hail DAB. All hail DAB.
And your femurs. You need them to live.
As well as your femurs.
Yeah, Billie, I sometimes feel that way as well.
Not specifically about being friends with sophomores.
Sometimes? Not a minute goes by that the thought of repeatedly stabbing someone in various organs and body parts doesn’t seriously cross my mind, and I usually have to convince myself to not do that. Madness is interesting.
nah that’s just anger issues, real madness is annoying, you never get anything done. the important thing to note is that the ones who are truly mad are mad for a reason, it’s usually because they’d be too dangerous if they ever decided to kick the madness and become sane.
Yeah. Not only is it kind of a pathetic thing to do even in high school, but she really hasn’t gotten the fact that “classes” don’t mean a thing in college past the first freshman semester. These are just three slightly older girls who have no influence over the student body as a whole. They’re not even in a sorority or other group with social pull as far she knows.
She’s kissing up for nothing because she simply can’t adapt to a new environment.
They might not even be older. They’ve just been here longer.
I think you’re missing out on the real motive, which is that they have easier access to booze than she.
Eh, Billie would just flirt with an older guy to get her booze.
For her it would work both as a challenge for her “skills”(trading off her on her looks) and as a self-esteem boost.
Since when has Billie had trouble getting booze?
Natural Selection lives on.
Last year, a lot of my new college buds outside my major were seniors. THey never seemed any different from me, and I was a freshman. The only difference is that they’ve graduated and I’ve got to find new people to hang out with.
it’s the sad batman that sells this post.
i hate it when that happens, usually i just find the hackey sack circle, their all potheads but at least you know who your talking to.
Yeah so Billie has finally found some friends. And I hope Joyce can run in those boots.
no she can’t
Those boots were made for walkin’
And that’s just what they’ll do. Oh god I feel old.
One of these days those boots are gonna walk all over you
are you ready boots, start walking.
the remake killed that song… it… was never meant… for techno…
I need to stab things too Billy. Just not with a knife.
Is it some other kind of tool?
Maybe a spork?
Didn’t you know sporks are
That’s only when you leave them alone with spoons and forks.
Excuse me, the silverware drawer in my kitchen is rattling, need to see what that-
Friends with upperclassmen, check.
Don’t mind me, just making a list of things Billie with trade her self esteem for.
I’m not so sure that she really has a whole lot of that to trade.
No, not really. But she is still shockingly eager to get rid of what she has left.
Everything must go!
Especially clothes and various sex acts!
…what? You were all thinking it.
I think they’ll be fast friends. They enable substance abuse, disregard the purpose of college, and they don’t like Sarah so Billie should have no trouble getting along.
With Joyce’s femurs.
But she needs her femurs to live.
But Billie needs them to stab.
Silly, femurs are bludgeoning weapons. Half a femur could potentially be a stabbing weapon, depending on the nature of the break.
If you can’t stab with a bludgeoning weapon, you’re just not trying hard enough.
I still like Robin’s “Then I will KILL GOD” the best. But “Stab everything” is a close second.
I can’t look at those last few panels without hearing Billie’s voice dropping down to sound totally evil and scary.
Now take that kind of voice and apply it to this: http://itswalky.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d4midxj
Oh my gawd… I’m scared for life. :’(
Oh silly willy Billie you can’t go stabbing willy-nilly.
Willie Nillie has a lot to live for
At least she’s not firing at Will.
No, conflict is Radiah-Sarah. Billie befriending the sophmores is a mission (and perhaps future conflict with Sarah).
Impending conflict, how awkward would it be if Joyce starts hanging out with this group? She’s roomies with Sarah, conflict in that scenario is inevitable.
Just imagine how awkward it’s going to be to find out that Ryan is another “really cool guy” that they enjoy partying with.
That actually wouldn’t surprise me very much. And yea, that may redefine awkward.
All we hear is
Someone still loves yoooouuuuu!
Remember like two pages ago when I said she’s gone crazy?
Oh Billie. You’re so great. And insane.
Isn’t Sarah a sophomore?
Why doesn’t Billie NEEEEEED to be friends with her?
Sarah’s not exactly popular.
and she kinda finds Billie physically repulsive.
And she’s a main character so she doesn’t count anyway.
This is the point where someone needs to take good old Billie gently by the face and tell her to kindly calm her shit. There is no good ending here.
When someone says they want to “stab everything”, I don’t think physically confronting them would be my first instinct.
I didn’t say it was a smart idea. Just that it needs doing.
Well, if she didn’t like Billie before, I’m sure Sarah’s just going to looooooooove her now…
oh man…warn the Balloon shop man!
Yeah….because sophomores are the real big men and women on campus…. >.>
When you’re a college freshman who still thinks she’s in high school, they are.
First Sarah was scout and now THAT BILLIE is a SPAH!
Are you SURE these guys aren’t at a high school boarding school? Because that’s seriously what it feels like to me.
Most likely because we’re seeing through the filter of characters barely weeks into their freshman college experience.
You’re likely right. I’m really hoping it doesn’t stay this way, tho.
STAB ALL THE THINGS!!!
I’m being dim here, but why the heck is she called Char? All I can think of is Gundam. It’s distracting.
Same reason people named David are sometimes called Dave.
So your first name isn’t actually “Damn you” and a comma? I might owe you several apologies.
pronounce it “shar” and it makes sense.
The Char from Gundam is also pronounced “Shaa”.
He comes for your women and gundams, be ready
Oh good, so it’s not just me.
You have the need to stab people too?
…Sure, let’s go with that.
SO happy I’m not the only one.
That’s just where my brain goes.
Therefore Chan is short for Hitmonchan.
Not anymore. Now it’s Chandelure.
Except for the starting three and their evolutions, I am unfamiliar with the 4th and 5th Gen of Pokemon.
This way they can both be fire types!
You mean, apart from her name being Charlotte?
Well… why not? I know people with a lot stranger nicknames than abbreviations of their actual names.
Well, she is the red one. It remains to be seen if she’s 3x faster.
Is Joyce mispronouncing Raidah’s name, or just emphasizing it for some reason?
She is pronouncing it correctly but slowly, as she’s unfamiliar with it.
Oh! I was wondering that, too. (It also has the pleasant side effect of telling the readers how to pronounce Raidah correctly, but that wouldn’t be enough of a reason on its own.)
are those last three little panels based on the shut down everything meme?
cause they have that feel
I don’t know what that is.
Well, great minds think alike. It’s like how Leibniz and Newton simultaneously developed the Calculus independently of each other. But with memes.
I totally made the same assumption. But I also played Pandemic 2 like a fiend.
Includes helpful link to what shut down meme looks like.
oh my god i got spawned right on madagascar once, i had to pinch myself to make sure it wasn’t a dream
AND THEN I WIPED OUT ALL OF HUMANITY
If there’s a problem that murder can’t solve, I don’t know what it is.
Being the last living thing.
One (self-)murder, and you are no longer the last living thing! Problem solved! Presuming, of course, that you don’t get all semantic about it.
Objectively speaking, presuming that you’re good enough at it, killing things is pretty much the universal problem solver. This would of course mean being able to take out all the police and armies that would be broken out to quell your rampage, and possibly the ability to eliminate any petulant deities that might want to get all up in your face for exterminating creation, but that’s not asking too much, is it?
Being the last person on Earth with a vault full of books, but being unable to read said books because your glasses just broke?
Yes she will stab everything! Even the knives!
especially the knives
We will stab out the sun, and then stab in the shade!
stab them on the beaches, stab them in the streets….
stab them with broken beer bottles because that’s bloody well all we’ve got!
er, supposed to be “Billy” Churchill
At a certain point I think he just makes these comics for the gravatars.
Clever pronunciation guide.
I’m reminded of that part in Harry Potter book 4 where Hermione corrected the readership-I-mean-Krum’s pronunciation.
And yet, everyone still calls her “Her-MY-nee”, instead of “Her-mi-OH-nee.”
Or “Her-my-wun,” like in that Robot Chicken sketch.
…because that’s how it’s pronounced: somewhere between “Her-MY-nee” and “Her-MY-oh-NEE”. There is no emphasis on the “oh”.
Same thing happened in the novel of “Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire,” when Prince Xizor was complaining about a computer that was drawing out the first syllable of his name too long. “Sheeeeee-zor.”
They had a Pokemon in Star Wars?
Glad to see Billie’s adjusting well.
Billie has eschewed suicide in favour of killing literally everyone else.
To be fair, Billie too is a part of everything.
Why are sophomores so much taller than freshmen I mean come on they all stopped growing at the same time!
I know, from what I recall from my teenage years, most of us reached our adult height by about 14-16.
I’d hate to see what she’d say if they were Juniors or *gasp* Seniors!
Huh, I thought it was pronounced like “Rade-ah”. Now I know.
Is no one else wondering what’s gonna go through Joyce’s mind hearing Billie claim she will “stab everything?”
Thank you for Joyce!
It’s nice to see a fairly realistic and positive portrayal of a Christian character encountering the larger world. Some of her views are being shaken, but she’s still a genuinely caring person. A *real* Christian as opposed to a straw puppet.
I grew up Lutheran and Baptist and have actually met *real* Christians. Along with *real* Buddhists they have been some of the best people I’ve ever met.
So I’d like to thank you for your insight and honesty in your story-telling Mr. Willis. Well done, sir!
I feel sorry for people who can only define their lives by the friends they have and popularity and such. I tend to have the opposite problem, which is just as bad in some ways, but much less hassle overall.
She will find a way to stab every point in space and time simultaneously. Only then will she have enough stabbing.
Then she must stab the very -concept- of stabbing.
I’m just imagining knives stetching out of Billie’s Body endlessly like Needle Kirby.
She can stab at Warp 10? Bloah.
The real trouble starts when she starts stabbing the fourth wall.
Rah-Ee-Dah rhymes with Lah-De-Dah.
…is right up there with “ALL SHALL BURN.”
Stab stab stab…
Stab stab stab…
Stab all the things!
(To the tune of “Shake Your Booty.”)
They could make a music video with the Dumbing cast, that’d be pretty funny.
I love how her eyebrows go over her glasses
or maybe it’s she’s so crazy her GLASSES are getting PINCHED into her FACE with RAGE
What an unfortunate time for Billie to manifest the power of the Word of God. Now she just told Joyce to “stab everything” in the voice that can’t be resisted.
That’s what the red lettering means right?
