First pants, now shoes…
Oh god! The color scheme! WHY IS EVERYTHING DIFFERENT.
I like it better — both this comic and, to a much greater extend, Shortpacked! load faster now without the background image needing to be downloadenatifizorized.
I don’t see any change?
Sierra suddenly just became my favorite character.
Sierra’s been my favorate character since January 25th
I went to remind myself of January 25th and I accidentally went to Jan 25, 2011… Best. Mistake. Ever.
You are so right. I thank you.
Appropriate icon is appropriate
That is a spectacular accident. Coincidentally, my dinner tonight consists of an entire bag of Chipotle BBQ Nachitos Doritos.
Sierra has to be the most chill person in the world.
Dr. Freeze might take offense to that.
Nah, he might take offense if you threatened his wife though.
Dina is Dr. Freeze’s wife? Oh.. no… this trows a major wrench in my fic.
Wouldn’t Captain Chill be more offended?
What happened to the background?
The authorities never found Sierra’s body, but her roommate was curiously not bothered.
Oh dear, will Walky seduce Sierra? Maybe a threesome shall ensue?
Walky? Seduction? Are we talking about the same guy here?
He IS sculpted out of Caramel.
Caramel: a seductive food, or the most seductive food?
But I think it’s more like Sierra seducing Walky with her enticing shoelessness.
If she’s also a fan of PJ jeans, we may end up with Ship To Ship Combat.
A game of BattleShip, if you will.
The trick to winning Battleship is having the luck to being able sink the patrol ship early on.
Walky knows what the girls like:
And that’s a man that can literally kick his shoes off and launch them halfway down the hall.
That and his caramel abs. Which is surprising considering his diet.
Maybe he eats lots of caramel and has gained their power.
Wait, Walky is Kirby?
Yep. He has to be careful when making out with Dorothy or he’ll be come Blondie Walky. or Brainy Walky. or perhaps the ever popular, Glasses Walky
Too bad there’s no Shades Walky or Bowtie Walky or Fez Waly.
And if Walky ate Jabber Jaws… Or the moon?
I prefer my Arctic Camo Walky and Wlkin’ Walky with real Walkin’ action!
Those need to be a thing. Like NOW.
I know the statues exist, but action figures of the Walkyverse/Dumbiverse would be awesome.
Don’t question the caramel!
His abs are literally made of caramel. It’s a mutation in how his body stores calories. Tragically, as he gets older, they will harden to a Sugar Daddy like consistency, causing stiffness and pain when moving, before he succumbs to hardening of the toffies.
He’s 18. He can eat whatever he wants and stay buff. We’ll see how he’s doing in about 15 years….
Try 5 years. A couple of buddies of mine who could eat anything they wanted and never gain weight in their teens had their metabolism grind to a halt in their early twenties. It was hilarious for those of us who were pudgy straight through.
I don’t know why people think you need conflict to make a story awesome.
Well, they need to move the story along.
Man, I’d watch Sierra and Walky hanging out until the end times.
Sierra & Walky. I GUESS I’ll have to draw THIS too! Thanks a lot, psonge bobbies.
Jokes on you! I didn’t put all my effort into it! HAHAHA!
here you go spongebobbies.
That is just adorable.
You don’t need conflict to make a story awesome, you need to for there to be a story period.
Not necessarily. I’ve enjoyed stories where the entire plot was basically ‘character walks from here to over here’.
I mean obviously some stories absolutely require it, but not every story.
You read the Lord of the Rings??
or was it See Spot Run?
Conflict in a storytelling sense doesn’t mean “two characters fight.” In storytelling, it means the thing that is motivating the characters to act.
Conflict: I want McNuggets.
Resolution: I’ll go to McDonalds and buy McNuggets.
Thank you. I wanted to point this out, but couldn’t come up with a good way to phrase it. Need more coffee…
Sierra X Walky is setting sail
I’m pretty sure it’s Sierra X Walky X Dorothy.
I notice that last panel isn’t phrased as a question.
Alex Trebek wouldn’t let you get away with that.
And Sean Connery wouldn’t let Alex Trebek get away with that.
But Alex Trebek’s mother might let Sean Connery get that.
*get with that. For a nickel.
You just made me think of Faz Walky.
I will cheerfully admit to being ignorant of the requirements law schools have, but do pre-law students actually take law courses?
My freshman roomie, eons ago, was pre-law, but moved out of our room and in with a buddy whose roommate had ALSO done the musical chairs things, before the semester was more than a week old. So I’ve got my head cocked at this comic like the RCA dog.
I dunno, but I’m really enjoying the fact that her textbook is just called LAW.
The best information I can find suggests that “pre-law” isn’t typically a major in the typical sense but instead a track for those intending to go to law school with various focuses in the humanities and social sciences. What actual degree one leaves such a track with seems to be variable. Any such courses would not likely include actual course related studies on law itself for first year students, but could toward the end of the program if the focus is political science, sociology or possibly philosophy. A criminal justice or paralegal degree would likely contain actual legal studies earlier and could be seen as a viable prelaw undergraduate path that could open better career potentials during law school. All that is, of course, Earth Prime info, and the universe of DoA may diverge considerably.
Yes, I remember my university residence days. “I am in pre-law”, my new floormate tells me. “No you’re not” I say, “you are in arts”. And you over there in pre-med, it’s called science.
I’m a Criminal Justice major, and we take lots of classes pertaining to the law, also, Vlad is right that to my knowledge anyhow there is no such thing as a pre-law “major”.
Is it just me or does Dottie have mouse ears in this comic?
Not really any more so than normal. Willis is really good about not actually showing characters looking straight on most of the time, so it’s usually less noticeable that her ears are slightly atypical in size compared to most everyone else in this comic.
Is Walky’s choice of pants a sign of him being considerate?
IMHO he sould of wore the pajama jeans if he wanted “live the dream”.
Haha, reminds me of last year, me and my roomies threw rotten grapes of the balcony at night, just because.
reminds me of that time me and 4 of my friends accidently ran over a dude and promised not to tell…oop.
It’s okay~ Your secret’s safe with me!
So… it was you…
I keep seeing Tea Party campaign ads at the bottom of the last panel
Damn you, Willis!
Dorothy knows him.
One would expect a law student to know that how things are phrased can mean everything…
Then again, she’s a freshman, right?
I’m so pleased that her textbook is just called LAW.
She’s reading The Judge Dredd Autobiography
It’s the long-awaited sequel to “I AM THE”.
She needs another one that’s just called Textbook.
You’re missing the letter under her hand. The book says “LAWN.” She’s actually majoring in Turfgrass Management to get herself an “in” on the world of grassroots organization.
I.. how is that a real thing?
Football players. Gotta have some thin excuse to claim they’re in an academic program, and hey, if they can’t make the big leagues, then maybe they can at least work with the pros in some way.
Silly Dorothy, how do you turn a phrase?
How do you turn a trick?
JAMMIES! WALKY JAMMIES!
Walky’s PJs seen awfully tight in the butt. Is there:
(a) too much junk in the trunk.
(b) a wedgie.
(c) the jammies being pulled forward by what’s going on in the front.
Like I would ask permission to “Take” my shoes off.
Why isn’t this tagged “Head Alien”?
the comic feels…less polished?…to me I guess, just seeing squiggles in the black lines
