Idk why, but Ethan’s shirt reminds me of Ben 10.
I think I know what Ethan’s shirt is SUPPOSED to be, but I’ll be damned if I can’t see it without immediately thinking he’s got the world’s smallest poncho on.
I think it meh actually be a poncho. Second and last panel have some line issues if’s not. Might actually be a barber’s cape, ‘sidering the strip theme.
Its the collar. Ben 10′s shirt’s neckline has a black lining too.
All it’s missing is the black vertical line in the middle.
He switched to a black shirt and green jacket after the first series
Funny, I don’t *recall* there being a second series.
So then what does that make Ben 10: Omniverse? Series 1.5?
Also, Alien Force/Ultimate Alien weren’t that bad.
Omniverse is series “Fuck this shit, we’re beating a dead horse.”
Alien Force was acceptable. Ultimate Alien? Pushing it.
Ominiverse: fricking lego monster, shittier animation, and …ugh
it hurts to think about it.
I actually like Alien Force better than the original series. Ultimate Alien was stupid. I never even watched omniverse, I switched it off the minute I saw the animation.
I like the block alien.
Honestly, Ben and Gwen were annoying in the first series. They got a maturity upgrade afterward, though Gwen matured further than Ben.
The problem with Ultimate Alien, is Ben didn’t utilize the new forms as well as he could have. Terraspin is immune to magic, but he NEVER used it against a magic opponent, i.e. Atwecha (spelling?). The ending was also rushed.
Omniverse isn’t that bad, the art just takes getting used to. I still hate granpa’s eyes and the fact that Gwen dresses like a kid again. And it’s obvious that Ben regressed in maturity.
Ugh…I couldn’t even STAND the first damn Ben10 show. Anybody wanna guess how I felt for the second, third, fourth and inevitable etcs!?!?!
Seriously CN, LET THIS SHOW DIE ALREADY!!
Oh! Good I’m not the only who noticed the Maturity reversion. Though I’d go farther and say it happened in every series after the First one. Though Alien Force and Ultimate Alien got him back on track faster. Omniverse best fix that soon. I mean they already flash back to when he was 10, don’t need to make him act 10 again even though he’s 16 (or is he 17?)
He’s reminding me more of Ulm from Flagland:
He’s Ferrara, not Ulm. Isn’t it obvious?
I mentioned in the other strip that the shirt makes me think of a white ST-TNG uniform.
Command division wears red, engineering division wears gold, comedy division wears white, science division wears blue.
His “Bitch, I got laid last night” strut could use some work. But what could be added?
Walking cane, I’m thinking a la Billy Dee Williams when he had a cameo on Scrubs
And a pimp hat, the kind with a leopard fur hat band and a feather.
A la billy dee Williams wherever he goes.
Add some spinnings and “You da man!” finger pointing.
A little too much “going to the corner general store to get some milk” in it.
A little too much, “Put on your Sunday clothes, there’s lots of world out there.”
Is it a bad thing that I thought of Wall-E before I thought of Hello Dolly when you said that?
I’m not sure if blue jays would help or hinder.
His chest must be puffed out and he must comb his frock in a detailed message to other males that he has successfully mated. Normally, this would induce stronger breeding urges, however young Daniel’s fine frock is dwarfed by both the size and sheer craft displayed by his neighboring friend, Joe-sepher.
I hope he didn’t *successfully* mate!
… Wouldn’t you know?
How could he possibly?
Are you asking how the author of the webcomic could possibly know whether something has happened to one of the characters of that webcomic?
I mean, he could have not decided yet, but that’s not really the same thing, and “I hope” still doesn’t seem to fit.
Well, if we’re going with the conceit that the story writes itself, and he’s a little over two months out on buffer, given the average rate of story per month, that’d only be about a day or two for now. Amazi-girl might still be able to take Plan B!
” ah now this is a rare treat, the juvenile Daniel struts through his natural environment, assured that he has properly marked his claim on his chosen female. see how he puffs out his chest and draws his head back to a dominant angle. ah such majesty. oh but what’s this? is he being stalked by the rare brickhead douchebag? lets hope he doesn’t spoil our juvenile Daniels afterglow. OH, i think he spotted me…”
I would’ve done either the Ric Flair strut or dance the entire day.
Add a little bit singing in it!
I find a saucy wink whilst strutting away does wonders.
It can be interpreted very differently though.
A forward aerial half-turn every alternate step might be a good start.
Coulda busted into song “I JUST HAD SEEEEX AND IT FELT SO GOOD!”
“I still don’t know who she really is” “DOESN’T MATTER, HAD SEX”
“She has a rogues gallery.” “Doesn’t matter had sex.”
And I just remembered Andy Samberg’s song, had forgotten about that one.
I’m in favour of jump-and-heel-click every third step.
I think that has been patented by the Ministry of Silly Walks.
“Good morning! Good Morning! It’s great to stay up late… If you know what I mean…”
ETHAN IS SO CUTE
Anyway, I ship it.
I would too. I think its going to remain an unrequited love though.
Part of the fun (and pain) of shipping things is the knowledge that there’s pretty much no way in hell it’ll become canon! So fanart will have to suffice (once I get around to it…).
I’d love to see Ethan X Danny fanart. Danny’s the cutest DoA guy, IMO.
Mike can smell pain coming.
The hover-text makes a better comeback then I would have thought up.
“Watch it, mike, your hair isn’t even three dimensional”
Ethan in boxers! Hooray!
Now get him out of the shirt.
Or they could be shorts actually. But do guys in Willis’ comics even wear shorts, outside of the beach/bed?
Those’d be some tacky ass shorts.
Hey, at least it’s comfortable and easy to wear.
+1 Internet for the Youngster, here.
At least they’re not assy tack shorts.
At least they’re not shorty ass tacks.
Better than longy ass tacks, ouch
Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
This is why I read these comments.
To learn of new instruments of debauchery?
I always thought it looked more like a headcrab, myself.
I guess people will just see what the will.
As opposed to gold brick?
I always called it the “Johnny Bravo Effect”.
Well Mike is winning the hottest dude poll so…
But seriously though I would love to see Ethan with a new haircut.
DANNY! WELL DONE!
“Hey, big guy”? Danny, I realize that you’re, uh, Danny, but this is not how we tell the gay dude, “Sorry, but I’m not interested. Too busy getting on the scoreboard with your ex-girlfriend in a superhero costume.”
Well, to be honest, Danny only knows…1/3 if any of this information.
??? Ethan dated Ruth ???
Just how many people DID Danny have sex with last night?
All of them.
No wonder we saw them in line getting shots …
So, they’re all getting in line for Space Mountain?
No no no. The only acceptable post coitus roller coaster is The Matterhorn.
Someone has to post it
you really didn’t have too.
If I didn’t, someone else would have
I would’ve gone with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFfCKy0nKr0
See, now we have some class in these comments.
It’s funny that you expect class on the Internet.
…I’m suddenly imagining an Englishman in a dapper suit and tie playing WoW while sipping tea.
I have seen this with my eyes. There wasn’t much class to be had, unless calling people “cocking c*nts” is considered classy these days. There were other curses to be had, but that one was uttered most often. It was like a his punctuation.
Well, what do you call people with whom you disagree over the Internet? Hmmmm?
A yellow bellied scum of the Earth? Though I only use that when I’m responding to rude morons.
I go with “You are a frightful bounder and an impudent cad. For shame, Sir, for shame!”
We have a Scotsman in our SWOTOR Guild. I am sure half the people who go on raids with him do it to hear his swearing. He operates on a whole other level than us mere mortals.
As A queen fan I approve of this
I thought of this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKc1DZLrOPM
Not sure for which character it goes best though.
Mike, how do you even keep your hair like that?
to antagnize gravity as much as possible
Not as much as Charlie’s hair.
Nice one, Mike. Good to see that Johnny Bravo/Adam Lyonn thing is working out with your hair.
Dude, the Johnny Bravo hair thing is awesome. It’s on my Top 10 Awesome Hair Style next to Ric Flair’s hairstyle back in the 80′s. Number one being the Ryoma Nagare’s hair from Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo.
All hair bows in humility when faced to Ryu’s pompadoeur from Shaman King. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v97/spacepiratecatdude/Ryu10.jpg
I hope this works. Never posted image here.
That is number 5. Himekawa’s pompadour is number 4.
HA HA. No. Even at half power, Ryu still beats that guy. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m39okeAH2L1ruc976o1_400.jpg
Dude, the guy weaponize his pompadour. Here, http://media.animevice.com/uploads/1/18405/520678-himekawa_pomadour_cannon.png
Ok, I don’t think either of us is going to back down on our choices, so let’s both agree that Mike would insult us both for caring so much about this… before saying that he could use his hair to see our moms last night for a nickel between the two of them.
I wouldn’t like that.
You know, you’re the only guy on the Internet that agrees to disagree.
HERESY! you are to fight to the death over this!
Nabeshin. ‘Nuff said.
hahaha! rare that I find anyone else who like Beelzebub
Look at the pance! Danny has a boner. First time one’s been shown on screen in any universe.
That’s just how I normally draw the zipper-flies of pants, dude!
This gives us many questions while also creating many questions.
…What the hell was I trying to say in the first place?!
‘This response raises more questions than it answers’?
It’s sure raising someth-okay, I just noticed your gravatar, and I seem to have lost my train of thought.
What? It’s just Ethan with an afrOh my god!
My god, look at Danny’s faaace…
That is the face of boy who just became a man…….or just finish both Demon Souls and Dark Souls without dying once.
The man who accomplishes beating that game would achieve Nirvana*. Sex would mean nothing in the face of that.
*Note: never actually played these games myself.
To describe those two games: You’re going to die. A lot.
You gotta add I Wanna Be the Guy to that list to match Danny’s faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace in this strip.
Why don’t we just put every single notoriously hard games to the list?
Danny beat Battletoads last night.
On his first try.
Without losing ONCE.
Danny won The Game.
Danny beat Dwarf Fortress.
Danny beat the internet. The end boss was hard.
Danny 100%ed Just Cause 2 in a single afternoon.
Danny beat Syobon Action without a negative number of lives?
Danny didn’t get lost in a maze of long winding tunnels, all alike, and didn’t get eaten by a Grue?
Danny ascended a pacifist healer.
Looks like young Daniel here just had good snu-snu
So….Ethan gets kicked out of Shortpacked! and now Willis is planning a small character redesign for the DoA variant?
I hope not. >.> <.<
Told ya so.
Did they use her costume as a condom or just make out?
I’m pretty sure a girl crazy-prepared enough that she can whip out the right size wrench (not even an adjustable!) for a street sign on a moment’s notice can come up with an Amazi-condom if necessary.
I think he’s assuming she had to be wearing the whole costume and not just the mask to preserve her secret identity.
I firmly believe that one of the pouches in her utility belt contains yellow & blue Amazi-condoms, with a mask pattern round the tip. I’m not sure whether they have an attached cape as part of the latex, or whether this is a detachable “novelty” feature.
Sure hope they remember to detach the cape before penetration.
My beautiful HAAAAAAAAAAAIRRRRRRR~
Streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair,
shoulder length or longer,
Here baby, there momma,
Ev’rywhere, daddy, daddy
Mike’s just grumpy cause he’s winning the sexy man poll!
Mike is always grumpy.
HEY I’M GRUMP!
I’M NOT SO GRUMP!
AND WE”RE THE DOA GRUMPS!
But not that guy, for he is a lump!
Man, if somebody doesn’t cosplay as Ethan while wearing a spray-painted black watermelon on their head I am going to be very disappointed.
Dammit Willis how am I supposed to get into an Internet fight over this?
(Just because this post is needlessly aggressive, I should mention at the start, in case of moderation, that one should check the context first).
Why is it so hard to write ‘damn it’ as two words? ‘Dammit’ is only useful for indicating the way in which it’s spoken, which is irrelevant unless you’re writing a work of fiction. There’s no excuse for shortening it in an online context, unless you’re writing online fiction.
‘Internet’? Since when does the internet get a capital letter, particularly when it’s used as an adjective?
Why do you need to get into an internet fight at all? Shouldn’t we all be trying to create a little more peace in the world?
YO DONT NEED A ReASON TO GET INTO AN iNTERNET FIgHT!!!!1! U JUST NEED SOMEOnE TO BE REALLY IRRITATING AND TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!!! PREFERABLY WITH INTENTOINAL ERRORS!!!1!
this is off topic but I love your gravatar, nice job
Internet has always been a proper noun
His shirt design reminds me of Will’s shirt from Picard’s Star Trek, for some odd reason. Yeah, the shorts are kinda tacky as has been mentioned.
Only Mike could be a tonsure critic with that hair do of his. But then, his works for him. Draw blood if you touch, just like him.
Glad to see Danny’s happy, can’t miss that ‘trucking down the road’ strut. Wonder how she’s feeling this morning.
I think the “shorts” are boxers. I hope. Or he has awful taste.
Well, that answers the boxers or briefs question.
Danny’s so happy he’s crabwalking.
The Jon Arbuckle strut of unfounded confidence.
You ever slept with a superhero? It’s quite an experience, let me tell you.
Just pray she doesn’t have superstrength, otherwise being inside her when she achieves orgasm could be fatal.
Only if you’re less manly than Danny. Wait..
Lol, Danny looks just a tad happy. But I can’t help but wonder exactly how much drama an eventual secret identity reveal is going to bring. Take your own advice to Ethan, Amber! Take it!
In other news, I… don’t get the progression of thoughts in this strip. OK, Ethan is awkward and introduces himself as ‘guy who liked your hair’. Danny says nothing hair related. Ethan becomes self-conscious about his hair? Was he honestly expecting a hair based compliment there?*perplexed*
Or he’s just trying to have a conversation?
Well, yes, I’m not questioning that at all. My question is why is he suddenly self-conscious about his hair? (Which is what panel #4 is portraying, I assume and which then leads to Mike’s always timely comment about his hairstyle)?
If reason for self-consciousness is not something that was said, and it wasn’t something that failed to be said, then what is it?
Him making the comment, then running a hand through his own hair probably led to him rethinking his look or something along those lines. It seemed like a pretty natural progression to me.
Or he was imagining running his hands through that luxurious mop of brown.
Actually he was running his hand through his hair and it got stuck, and then the watermelon started digesting it. If this happened to you you’d look consternated too.
I think that Ethan was fishing for grooming tips. girls do that, why not gay guys? He’s thinking he wants to change his look and is looking for options.
Why can’t hetero guys do this, by the way?
Why? Guys are go out with whatever hairstyle they woke up with. They don’t give a damn about grooming……..much.
Um… No. This is patently wrong.
Not entirely. It does apply to some, just not all.
Truth be told, I don’t spend more than five minutes on my hair each morning, even shoulder long as it is. Never go out with what I woke up with either though.
Wait, PM’s not here today?
Hey, yeah that’s kinda weird.
I’m not sure which is weirder, Plaz not showing up or Plaz not having anything to say.
A comic about hair. Nice.
…Says the guy with the end of a broom on his head.
We’d be hearing Guile’s theme if it were him. Hell, DURING the Amazi-Girl sex too.
You mean you don’t hear it constantly in the back of your mind?
Whoops, sorry about that….
*turn off the boombox*
Yay! Mike! we definitely don’t see enough Mike anymore. He needs more reasons to show up.
Mike, you have the Atlanta Falcons logo as a haircut.
I can’t help but imagine Danny’s singing ‘I’m Not Wearing Underwear Today’.
(Possibly because he forgot to bring it with him after getting Amazi-Nookie.)
This is now the sub-section for “Things Danny Would Be Singing After Making Out And/Or Had Sex With Amazi-Girl”.
“Pocket Full of Sunshine” WHOAAAAA-OWHOOO-OOO
Appropriate considering the amount of spines both Ross and Danny have.
You know, you will never hear that song the same way again after viewing A Clockwork Orange.
I’ll, uh… keep from watching that movie then. Because now it’d ruin Friends AND Danny sex for me. I don’t want either ruined for me.
No, you should see Clockwork Orange. It’s a good movie. A little disturbing, sure, but really good.
I love you, Mike.
Has anyone played Bioshock Infinite and noticed how some key portions of the plot mirror elements of Jason’s backstory in It’s Walky? I’m pretty sure the alley scene with the portal (near the end) was lifted directly out of Willis’ work. Willis, you’re mainstream!
which scene, and what reference specifically? i fail to see the similarities.
SO willis, ive wondered for a while, what are your thoughts on the community’s tendancy to make ‘micro-memes’ with notable quotes and one liner’s from the strip?
in the FAAAACE, with his PENIS, for NICKLE!
Hey guys hey guys
Listen to my story!
Guess what happened last night?
Guess guess what happened last night?
I just done the tango!
The glorious tango! the legendary tango!
With the most beautiful lady!
I worship and adore!
The most glorious tango of all!
Because it takes two to Tango!
The night was ended
Gloriously I say
Not a premature you-know-what
With the best laaaaaaady!
(Back to chorus)
you said “hey hey guys, listen to my story…” and the first thing i thought was “all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down…”
I thought it was that song about Krabby Patty with Jellyfish Jelly.
So, is the full title of this strip “Hair 2: Dye Hairder”…?
Im paying attention yknow.
I just finished an archive binge. Assuming the only time skip was when Walky got his Pajama Jeans, that would place today being the third Wednesday of the school year. But since some people were getting flu shots, I’m thinking that may be wrong.
Did Danny use the signed condom he got from Roz?
And now I suddenly ship Mike/Ethan in the DoA universe for no explicable reason.
Was Melonhead trying to hit on Danny?
