Woah! Joyce! not cool, she is a cancer patient.
What is the length between her shaves if Joyce has to ask that.
Birth and now.
pre-birth and now.
They shaved her at birth so she wouldn’t be at risk of catching pre-natal lice.
(Those who gets this reference are awesome, the rest should find out what it is from)
“You realize that would be lice IN the womb”
“Oh, they exist. And they are disgusting!”
The part where they have printed a book with the story about how they shaved the baby just so she can pick it up and tell them she’s not buying it is my favorite.
The eyebrows are strong with this one.
Will she and Dotty have to have a strong eyebrow-off?
Keep it classy, Joyce.
Could be worse, they could have been curly hairs.
Her hair is wet right now. Who’s to say it’s not!?
I’d say that her hair was straight in It’s Walky! so it must be straight here, but Willis doesn’t really draw curly hair all that profoundly. Hell, apparently Walky’s supposed to have “poofy” hair.
Poor Plasma Moongoose, nobody gets the joke
I guess they will have to ask their parents to explain it to them when they finally hit puberty.
It’s more like I was purposely dodging the joke
Plasma, what’s pew-brrr-tee?
Pew-brr-tee is Tea you drink in church during winter naturally.
It’s funny ’cause pubes.
You must be new here everybody does this with jokes in the comment section we just pretend they meant something else and keep going like that until it spins out of control and we’re no longer on a topic that has anything to do with the comic.
Oh, we all got the joke, just don’t want to awknowledge it.
It only gets poofy / curly when the humidity is high.
“It’s the Humidity!”
Poofy is kind of different than curly, and i remember big boss, tony, and walky’s dad all having very curly hair
Looks like the curtains match the carpet! (But not for Joyce!)
And once again Joyce discovers the Burning Bush.
She should see a doctor about that.
Really? I was thinking a priest perhaps.
Is Mandy half-anime character?
You caught her. Her full name is Mandy Hameha
Is her father’s first name Kame?
Joyce San you may use the shower now.
You have clogged shower unit with body hair, now we
must battle Haha!
BELIEVE IN THE ME THAT BELIEVES IN YOU.
JUST WHO IN THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?
IF THERE’S A HOLE, IT’S A MAN’S JOB TO THRUST INTO IT!
Time to power up to Super Christian!
A ninja cannot sheath his sword until it has tasted blood. RETRIBUTION-chan!!!
But Faz has Wen now.
Really? I thought that was Samuri, Ninja’s didn’t really use swords.
Ninjas do too use swords! perhaps not as much as the samurai do, but they do use swords.
Modesty Towel trope detected.
And you avoided linking us all! we’ll train you into a responsible commenter yet, Plasma :p
Actually, for what it’s worth, I was reading It’s Walky! once and one of my friends peered over and asked if I was reading another anime thing.
As someone who fears group showers those individual stalls look awesome.
I’d only enjoy group showers if they followed a boy-girl pattern.
Until you realize what young people like to do when they are alone in the shower.
Wash behind their ears?
Noooooo, guess again….Or not. If you can’t picture even one thing young people could do by themselves in the shower they wouldn’t do in front of strangers, especially the opposite sex, keep it that way. You’ll sleep easier.
Pick their noses?
Mind themselves in awkward silence?
Listen to see if anyone else is doing anything untoward in the next stall?
In the shower? You know how many pieces you lose down the drain?
Naw, it’s “Fail utterly to be able to wash between your own shoulder blades and wish it was a group shower so you had help.” From what I’ve seen in group showers, anyways.
No, clearly it’s try to develop super powers!
Meh, you can’t walk through the girls dorms here without finding hairballs all over the place. We shed like cats. I don’t even know how it gets everywhere.
Ironic Grav for the win.
You can’t walk through the girls dorms with out super powers that allow you to walk through walls!
Did she shower with her glasses on?
I’m guessing no.
I’ve always showered with my glasses on. I would be covered in razor wounds otherwise.
Wouldn’t they fog up?
Sorry, don’t wear glasses, have no idea. Do they make anti-fog glasses?
They would probably fog up, but running them under water would wash that away and raise the tempreture of the glass preventing it happening again temporarily.
My eyesight isn’t so bad that I need to wear my glasses for everything so I’ve never worn mine in the shower. I have however worn them in the rain, so I would imagine by Lumpia’s description the slight blur from wet glasses would still be better then no glasses at all.
Best we have on offer at the moment as far as I’m aware is transitional lenses which are a god send for people with my particular impairment, though an anti-fog coating would be great. Sometimes a sudden tempreture change does cause it naturally.
Honestly, if you’ve ever had to defog a window you’ll get the gist. Same principle.
I have very terrible vision but my glasses do nothing for me in the shower… I just bend down a lot and do the razor-run-followed-by-hand-run combo.
I just do it by touch. Blind as a bat without my glasses, and the anti-fog covering wears off, eventually. Especially if it’s exposed to ammonia fumes, it ends up.
Oh so there is such a thing? I’ll have to look into it for my next pair.
The cheaper but messier and more labor intensive alternative are the anti-fog waxes or the silicon rain-away type coating you use for car windshields. I use that stuff stuff on my prescription safety glasses for obvious reasons.
They make prescription safety glasses? That would be a godsend in chem lab, with my glasses slipping down my nose and the goggles fogging up I can’t see a thing.
But then… how do you wash your face? I would be knocking my glasses clean off my head and smashing them on the drain if I tried that. (So I guess the answer is, “be more coordinated than dariu”
Is Joyce wearing sock and no sandles? As a college student I fear my bare feet someday touching the shower floor or is that just guys?
Who wears socks to the shower stalls? They’d soak up the water on the tiles and make your socks all soggy.
This is progress for Joyce. The first time she wore a winter hat and coat.
I do. There’s only water on the floor some of the time. Even then it’s usually just one puddle I often succeed in avoiding.
But yeah, my socks do get wet sometimes.
You never heard of wearing socks in the shower to avoid evil, deadly bacteria from strangers, then wash your feet after?
No, they aren’t waterproof, therefore they aren’t germ proof. Wear shower sandals, they work much better.
Damn, that bathroom looks nice! At least, it looks a lot nicer than the ones in my residence.
Yeah, mine just had flimsy plastic curtains.
Jeez, Grace is busting with joy here.
It’s like she’s staring at the reader in a way that asks us if we don’t have anything better to do with our lives. I mean I don’t, but still. Chilling.
Oh Mandy, you came and you gave without taking- your hair from the drain! Oh Mandy!
Well you left me this hair in the draain,
But it’s making me gag!
I can only imagine what twisted things the blonde in panel one must have whispered to Joyce to get her so bug eyed.
Grace: Just so you know…I pee while I shower…we all do…
No whispering to Grace, just muttering. Things like “If only I could remember the names of those naked guys in my room. Pretty sure one of them’s dead.”
Can I just say I love how he drew Mandy’s hair wet? it looks so awesome.
That is some pretty amazing wet hair.
Yeah, she hates hair salons. She prefers to do it herself in the shower.
“No. In actuality, it was like that when I got there!”
Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
how happy you made me oh Mandy
Well you came and you shaved without cleaning
then I sent you away, oh Mandy
well you (didn’t) kiss me and stop me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy
Today’s mangled, rewritten lyrics are brought to you by a sick, twisted mind
I notice Joyce has only socks on her feet. Please tell me she has flip-flops in that basket, and that she isn’t going in there … *shudder* … BAREFOOTED.
Next story arc on dumbing of age, Joyce battles foot fungus. Always wear shower shoes kids, even if you think the other shower is clean you can’t be sure. I think I am mixing my PSAs now.
She is really hung up on hair in the drain.
Geez. Get over it.
Well, past a certain point and the shower won’t drain properly. But yeah. It’s just hair.
Try growing up with three females with long hair, ugh, you did not want to see the shower drain.
I’ve seen a hair-clogged shower drain. It ranks eighteenth on the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen.
Daughter had long hair. I had to dismantle the main bathroom shower in my house when it plugged up. The mixture of shampoo, soap, conditioner and hair was over 5 feet long.
Did you try Liquid Fire, or other strong drain cleaner?
you pansies. i regularly have to clean my wife’s silken tresses out of the drain.
i suppose it’s different when it’s the hair of someone that you, you know, watched squeeze your child out of her hoocher, but still. grow the fuck up. all that dust on your shit? other people’s skin.
Hey now, all the dust on my shit and other possessions is my own skin. I’m the only one living here.
And good lord, it’s amazing there’s anything left of me at all! It’s everywhere!
Socks and no shoes in the communal bathroom? Joyce that’s so gross, get yourself some shower flipflops and save yourself from squishy socks forever.
Man I’m glad I skipped all that living-at-college crap. Not that I wouldn’t have if I had to; I was just lucky enough to live within driving distance. All that sharing junk just gives me the shivers.
Just a short comment to say I just read over my DOA book from kickstarter and it was fantastic. Really good quality print too – very impressed.
All the little notes were great too.
It didn’t come from her head…
Yea, I knew someone was going to go there.
Pubs can get that long?
I would be more worried about the fungal infections you can get in public showers, and would invest in some dang flip-flops.
She is so adorable. I’ve been waiting for her debut!
I want too see more of mandy
