Another Joyce reaction face for the pile!
i can’t tell what’s brighter, joyce’s awesome blue eyes or 4th of july fireworks
DAGNABBIT! She’s become like ME! NO TURN AWAY JOYCE!
Before I die, Walky, please stop talking.
He wouldn’t be the Walky Talky Man if he stopped talking.
Did you say Walkie talkie man?
Wow, that surprised me.
a lot of more devout Christians show their children mainly or only Christian childrens’ shows. Production values and writing vary… widely.
This may be the first time Joyce has seen something that is actually good.
Kinda wonder if she would’ve felt the same way had they watched in episode order… I know that wouldn’t have been true for me of Torchwood =p
didn’t joyce watch disney? can’t remember…but them’s good production values
This is like watching people discover Doctor Who.
Nah man, this is anyone joining the Fantern Corps late to the party.
Please, PLEASE, tell me that is not what Green Lantern fans call themselves.
It is. At least it’s better than brony. XD
Why the hate on bronies, man?
It’s a pretty awful word.
I’m a brony myself, and I can say it is a pretty awful word.
Well, Brony is bad, but it’s not as egregious as Pegasister…
I’m liking that one already! Ooooh! The things I could tell you, if Cindy Crawford had been by Pegasister!!
What about eunuchorn?
I think the hate is directed more towards the name than the fandom itself. Probably because the word Bro has been co-opted by the Douchebag Hordes. Personally I’m allright with the name, because I think it’s the first step to taking it back. Someday it will be ours again.
SlowBro is the best Bro.
and also, a dismaying number of people who call themselves bronies behave with a truly shocking degree of insensitivity and entitlement.
yeah, dat privilege.
Well, yeah, that’s true of pretty much any group of random people.
That’s… That’s true of people IN GENERAL.
Yeah you could replace ‘bronies’ in that sentence with just about any group name and it remains relevant, for example:
‘ a dismaying number of people who call themselves christians/envirnmentalists/athiests behave with a truly shocking degree of insensitivity and entitlement.’
‘dismaying number of people who call themselves humans behave with a truly shocking degree of insensitivity and entitlement.’
The sad part that the statement is still true.
Nah, it’s towards the more … extreme fans. Those who feel it necessary to let everyone in the world know that they’re a fan of a particular cartoon, have it permeate every aspect of their life, then try to have it permeate every aspect of the life of everyone around them. Like really overbearing, very specific furries.
That’s where the hate’s directed.
Well, in my case anyway. And I probably wouldn’t say hate… just… hmm… what would be a more accurate word… intense distaste? I’m not about to go beat on a brony. But I do actively avoid a lot of things to do with the whole thing. It’s actually put me off the show by way of proxy embarrassment.
You watch the show, you like the show, you’re even a fan of it? Sure, go right ahead… just… please… be aware that no-one else actually cares.
It’s like me 10 years ago when I was just getting into anime and Studio Ghibli films in general. It was like OMG BEST THING EVER GUYS YOU MUST WATCH THIS WITH ME. Soon learned that lesson. These things are limited market, and after about the third attempt people start to avoid you and think of you as That Creepy Guy With The Foreign Cartoon DVDs. These days those who didn’t run a mile have at least dropped the “Creepy” bit, and if there’s something major happening I might mention it in passing and I’ll answer an odd question someone may have, but I still haven’t got them to watch any discs or join me at any showings. Because no-one cares about your strange hobby, especially when you’re shouting about it in a public forum.
BTW, I give Dave and other cartoonists a free pass for going on about Transformers, MLP or whatever even so – because this is their private space, and we’re guests within it. They can say what they like.
(And I know I’m probably angling for a ban with this post, but I figured it might be useful to offer an actual “outsider’s perspective” in contrast to guesswork by someone within that group in question. There were a few astonishingly hardline and overeager otaku in the university anime & manga club who I wish I could have given that hint to. I had to leave it in the end because it was just too cringeworthy when both they and members of the public were around. At some point you cross the line from “hey, I found this thing, it’s surprisingly great, wanna come give it a look” to seeming like a bizarre cult.)
BTW, the name is pretty dumb, but there’s no shortage of special interest groups that give themselves inadvisable monikers, and amongst them it doesn’t really stand out. I’m sure there’s a hundred worse choices it could have been.
Just the name. Look down a bit and you’ll know I am one. XD
Because the very word “brony” is a gender-divisive piece of nonsense that is waaaay too excited and defensively proud of itself for liking a show aimed at girls.
That bronies think it’s so amazing that they can actually like a show featuring ladies that was aimed at ladies is insulting. The number of them who then go on to insist that, because it’s good, it CAN’T be aimed at little girls and MUST in fact be secretly for adult male fans like them… are truly gross.
It has nothing to do with brony sounding stupid or for it being a rhyming version of “pony”; if it were, then truly fantern and all the other terms out there that are similar would be equally stupid. The gender and the attitude implied by the gender are what’s stupid.
I fail to see how Fantern is better than Bronie. There has got to be something more clever than Fantern.
Yeah, I mean, Fantern is somewhat close to fantard.
At least for the animated series, Giancarlo Volpe put it to a vote, and he approved of the name, so there you go. No arguments over whether it’s a gender-specific fandom term and if we need a separate one or not, either. (Technically the full name is the Fantern Corps.)
Cause brony is a dumb-ass name that makes me ashamed to enjoy the show. Or maybe it’s just bronies who do that.
I say it Loud!
Im Brony and I’m Proud!
Yeah, it’s stuff like this that gives you guys the bad rep.
Stop acting like it’s amazing that you enjoy a show aimed at girls. Stop using language that deliberately compares yourselves to oppressed minorities. Just stop. ♥
That’s a matter for debate. They’re both pretty bad, but I think brony is slightly better, if only because I had actually heard of the term before five seconds ago. It’s not a very good nickname if a member of said fanbase has never heard the term…
Better than Fannibal. (Note – I am a fan of the tv show Hannibal, and that portmanteau was inevitable, but still eyerollworthy.)
Well, except that Doctor Who is pretty far from perfect. It’s good but…
Some Doctor Who is perfect. Very little NuWho is near that level, but get into some of the classic stories like “City of Death”, “Genesis of the Daleks”, “The Daemons”, “Tomb of the Cybermen”, etc. and you’ve got sheer brilliance.
I think Blink, as a standalone episode, is as close to perfect as a piece of television can get.
Blink was the first episode of Doctor Who I watched, and…yeah, I can see this argument being made.
It’s got some serious problems. Sally basically gets stalked by the guy, and as a protagonist, she doesn’t really do much, things more happen to her.
Very enjoyable, but the writing has serious flaws. I lean more toward “The Empty Child” two-parter or “Waters of Mars” as high watermarks for NuWho.
The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang was good albeit a tad confusing.
My brother’s first was The Library, but I can’t remember my own first (I think it might’ve been The Beast Below.) My favorite though, or at least the one I go back to watch, is A Christmas Carol. It’s self-contained, the music’s great, I love the twist on the final ghost, and I think it presents what The Doctor can mean to both children and adults.
My first was the made-for-TV Doctor Who movie. *Goes off to weep silently in a corner.*
Silence in the Library was one of the 2-part episodes I actually managed to catch in full (I missed others like Blink and still haven’t managed to catch up), and it made me sit up and actually start paying attention to NewWho… it has some misses, but it also has some very definite hits.
Paul McGann was a great doctor!
Paul McGann still IS a great Doctor! ….. in, er, the audio dramas. (Which also try their level best to give the unfortunate Colin Baker some decent scripts.)
Having only watched a couple, Waters of Mars is amazing.
I put my vote for the best of NuWho being The God Complex. Interesting and complex secondary characters, a realistically imperfect Doctor, a classic-style villain, a cool setting, great direction.
That’s a funny way to spell Homestuck
Obviously you mean the JJBA fandom.
Aren’t you guys talking about Game Grumps?
Kinda in that boat myself, now. So far my favorite episodes are the tail end of season 1 (’cause I’m only a few into season 2 right now), and I’m not sure I like David Tennant. I really liked the last guy. I know, I know, heresy. But it is what it is.
My first episode of Doctor Who was maybe half-way through the episode where he faced the devil. The first-full episode, Midnight from New Who S4. That was my AH-HA moment as to why so many people love the show. I thought that episode was a brilliant story. I Still don’t watch the show but I thought that episode was a great intro into the series.
My first Who episode was ‘the Shakespeare Code’. I don’t know what it was, David Tennant being a charming bastard or the show itself but after that first episode I never looked back.
“My first episode of Doctor Who was maybe half-way through the episode where he faced the devil.”
How sad is it that I immediately thought “Ooh, ‘The Daemons’! That’s going back a bit!” before remembering that Tennant faced the devil as well?
I’m pretty sure my first episode of Doctor Who was “The Sea Devils”, but it wasn’t new at the time. No, no, I got into Who during the Peter Davison years. However, with a generous PBS station, I was exposed to three Doctors at once: Davison weeknights at 11, a full Pertwee serial on Saturday afternoons, and two episodes of Tom Baker Sundays at 7ish.
That was pretty much my (very good) luck – Pertwee, Baker the first, and Davison were my introduction to the show, and remain among my favorites (though Smith has joined them).
It’s not heresy, there are people for whom he’s not the favorite. And what your going through is *entirely* part of the experience. Getting really invested in the first Doctor you watch, then not being entirely sure about the new one. Eventually you realize you like the new one for different reasons, and your enjoyment of the previous one is no less significant. Each new Doctor becomes new and exciting, who knows, Ecceleston may end up not even being your favorite.
Heh, it’s just so many people seem to deem Tennant as THE BEST DOCTOR EVAR!!! and I was having a bit of fun with that mindset. I’m a few more episodes in now and I’m starting to see why that is, though. He’s hilarious. Still loved Eccleston’s acting when he got FURIOUS with the “last” Dalek, though. That man is pretty skilled himself, just a different type of humor. Tennant is more wacky; Eccleston is more sarcastic.
Tom Baker or GTFO.
No, no, you’re in SERIES two. Overall, it’s SEASON 28.
DEFINITELY my reaction to starting Doctor Who. Went from “Oh, it’s that sci-fi show I keep seeing gifsets of on Tumblr, I wonder why everyone’s freaking out about it” to “OH LET ME JUST BUY THREE POSTERS OF THE DOCTOR FOR MY ROOM AND A REPLICA SONIC SCREWDRIVER AND ALSO WATCH EVERY EPISODE EVER MADE”.
My pencils rest safely in a TARDIS mug at work
My first foray into Dr Who were David Tennant’s last two episodes before the holiday specials. My reaction was “This crazy running man is awesome! I must see more of him!”
I am a fan of that show.
*Awaits stunned reactions*
I’m acting astonished!
Eh. My wife is trying to get me into Doctor Who. I’ve seen bits and pieces of it now–the first couple episodes of the ninth doctor, a couple of the old Who series, and the Five Doctors.
It’s all right, but I have yet to hit the point of obsession.
It happens when you find the right episode and Doctor for you. Often it manifests as a poke to your childhood dreams. Sometimes a kick in your existential belief that you are important in the universe does it. Regularly it involves empathy. Something just clicks.
“Bad Wolf” is definitely what did it for me. The “Are you my mummy?” episodes got me started, though, those were REALLY good. But “Bad Wolf” got me completely hooked.
I’m in the same boat. I watched most of the episodes since the reboot. And while I can say there’s some episodes and storylines I liked, I wouldn’t call myself a fan of the show as a whole. I have no interest in going back to watch the old show, and less interest in getting involved with the fan community (which honestly seems to be one of the most obsessive and annoying fandoms out there)
As a Doctor Who fan, I’m outraged by this suggestion.
What do you mean “one of”?
Bronies and the Sonic fandom are both pretty scary in their own right. It’s really hard to rank you three. There might be a few others I’m forgetting.
Honorable mention goes out to SSB fandom
“I’m not INVESTING myself”
- Every fanatic’s last words
Along with other great hits like:
- “I’m not gonna get sucked in.”
- “Just two or three episodes to see what the big deal is.”
And the more obscure but oddly recurring:
- “I hope this doesn’t awaken anything in me.”
Nice Community reference!
“One of us! One of us! One of us!”
This was me and Pokemon.
Me after marathon-ing Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
Seriously, I’m in fucking LOVE with this show now!
I was DETERMINED to not like it. Then someone told me that Plastic Man showed up. So I thought “FINE, I’ll watch the episode with Plastic Man, then I never have to again.”
Needless to say, I am now a fan.
Brave and the Bold sold me on AQUAMAN. And I thought they could ever topped the DCAU version of Aquaman.
Pretty much exactly how I became a fan of Phineas & Ferb.
I tried to like B&B, I really did. But nothing is EVAR going to measure up to BTAS. As far as I’m concerned, Kevin Conroy IS the mother-effin’ Batman. And Mark “Luke Skywalker, whiny bitch” IS the Joker. One minute he’s silly and funny, then he’s freakin’ killing somebody. Then, there’s Harley. Robin(Dick Grayson): “What was she, before she went nuts?”
Batman: A clinical psychologist.
I mean, seriously, what’s ever going to top that?
There is an ep where he travels to an alternate dimension, and Kevin Conroy voices the alternate Batman
I think Kevin Conroy also voiced the Question
Sorry, it was Phantom Stranger, not The Question. Still awesome
I just watched that episode last night, and I’d almost swear B&TB Bats wormholed his way into the DCAU. That’s how good that episode is. Yes, everyone’s voiced by their DCAU counterpart, but dammit, I’d swear it was written by someone who worked on those shows too!
I like BTAS for exploring those deep depths, and I enjoy the dark character development given to Bats and his characters, and I like it because it didn’t always feel like it was treating kids like kids, and had an atmosphere of maturity to it.
But at the same time, I love B&TB because it’s just FUN! It takes the Silver Age, takes everything that people complain about the era over(Even the Superdickery is in there, apparently…I need to get to that episode soon), and says, “Yes, it’s dumb, it’s cheesy, it makes no sense, but we love it, we embrace it, and who cares if we have a babyfaced mobster making out with a man-faced-woman, didn’t you still get some entertainment out of that episode?”.
I also like that they embrace the hell out of SuperFriends Aquaman. Sure everyone calls him a lame-o and guys like Geoff Johns have done their damndest to stray from that, but he honestly does show his badassness in this show, and he PUNCHES A FRICKIN’ COMET. I’ve been convinced for a while Aquaman could be second in strength to Supes in strength, and that about solidifies it.
…God, I’m gushing…
I love “OUTRAGEOUS” Aquaman.
What is the Monkey Master equivient of a brony?
Which evolve into Primeapes.
Which includes the Fanana Splits sub-group. Nobody talks about they do. But we know, we know.
… Thanks. Now I’m gonna have nightmares about those creeps all night.
Don’t know why but that just sounds dirty
In just seven days, I can make you a man…
I don’t want no dissension, Just dynamic tension
Given the primary male demographic, I’d say Girillas for the ladies.
The vest came off. Things are getting intense now.
Dexter and Monkey Master gets her all hot and bothered.
Why does that reminded me of R. Crumb for some reason?
Because Joyce’s thighs are bigger than her head?
What? It took her five hours to reach that conclusion?
Without commercials, that’s like fifteen episodes. Walky’s beginner guide needs help.
I mean, sure, Alien Nation is a great starting place, but I bet he didn’t think to show her Banana’s Foster Home
What you don’t see is that she has been repeating this for the past 3 hours.
Walky has to keep shushing her.
Maybe she was sooo entranced by D&MM that it took 5 hours to awaken from her euphoric stupor.
Couldn’t you tell from the way the episode map completely skipped over the second season premiere? “Follicle Follies” is amazing, and it’s an easy jumping-on point besides.
This comic almost feels really circle jerky.
Alien Nation? In my book it’s honestly the most overrated episode ever. Sorry had to say that. Walky I am dissappoint.
Well, it’s still a lot less overrated than “Extra-TerrestriGirl”. Don’t even get me started.
Well “Extra-TerrestriGirl” is at least still good. Yes it genderbended Dexter for the third time, but it actually gave hima boyfriend! Now there is comedy gold!
Alien Nation on the other hand was just meh. Yes Dexter trying to take over the world “WITH DEMOCRACY” was hilarious as was his speech in front of teh UN, but seriously? I jsut never got why people shower it with praise.
You see, “Extra-TerrestriGirl” was just the writers trying to work around the TV censors. Yeah, I get that animated shows up to that point never showed a same-sex couple together, but this hardly qualifies.
And if you can’t see the thinly veiled commentary on the late 20th century Republican party in “Alien Nation”, then I just can’t help you. I’m surprised that whole thing got by Joyce without a comment.
Oh boy, Totz ain’t gonna like this but “Extra-TerrestiGirl” was a tad hamfisted but still good, seeing that it’s one of the few good episodes in the abysmally bad season 5.
The more episodes you guys add, the longer it’ll take for me to complete the summaries…
The list is up to 60 episodes, 1 made-for-TV movie, and 1 shitty M. Night Shyamalan live-action movie now.
You need 65 for syndication. And since we know there were a minumum of four or five seasons, that’d put it at thirteen-fifteen episodes a season on average… Thirteen happens often enough, I guess, but it seems kind of short for a western series, especially depending on when it originally came out. (Do we have an exact date canonically?)
We don’t have a canon date, but one episode aired “a week before the Porygon episode” of Pokemon from yesterday’s comments, which means that one aired in April, 1998 here in America.
We also have the 3rd Season episode Walky mentions in today’s comic including a “thinly veiled commentary on the late 20th century Republican party” according to NerdHerder.
So… It started in 1998 at the latest, probably more Fall, 1997. It also had at least 5 seasons according to Aizat’s commentary in this very thread. If each season lasted from Fall-Spring, that would take us into Spring 2002 which covers the idea of one episode airing the same night as the Invader Zim episode “Dark Harvest” as I established in the commentary for the comic “What Part”. That would put that episode in Season 4, but I think some of the comments before established there being Six or more seasons.
…plus a crappy made-for-TV movie and a truly horrid M.Night Shyamalan live-action movie.
I haven’t made a chart yet, but I’m going to say it started in ’97 and ran through, say… ’04? That makes seven seasons. Maybe I’ll extend that to 8 if I feel it’s necessary, but 7 seasons x 26 episodes per season = 182 episodes. That’s a hell of a run for a cartoon.
I’m not going to name every episode for all 7 seasons, but that gives me room to spread the episodes out and give them room to breathe.
Totz, for the love of god, calm down. You’re starting to sound like that dude who tried to make a Grand Unified Animation theory by watching all the Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry and D&MM cartoons over and over again. He never recovered and all he produced were nonsensical flowcharts and the illegible ramblings of a madman.
I may have once gone through and marked down how much subjective vs. objective time Marty McFly experiences in the course of the trilogy. I think it was somewhere in the neighborhood of three weeks in that many 1985 days.
…oh shit. I never should’ve given exact numbers seasons and episodes. Now I’m going to be bombarded until I’ve got 182 titles on my list, aren’t I?
And I just came up with that date because it was the only reason I could think of for an episode getting entirely pulled. I don’t know if there was ever an established time period it aired in in the comic itself, but that would take priority.
Don’t forget the original comics! Heck, I didn’t know they existed until today, and I’m the biggest comic book nerd there is. This is going to take some digging.
Aw, I was hoping she’d either hate it or be indifferent. Thus causing Walky to question his chart.
More importantly, thus still being alive tomorrow. There was a meeting she was supposed to attend on penalty of death…
Be femur removal. Because she needs those to live.
Her FAAAAAACE may also be involved.
So, is she watching the show or has Ethan and/or Walky taken his/their shirt/s off to get more comfortable?
Or perhaps Jacob is is working out now?
I’m pretty sure that just off screen, we could see this with updated hair:
Ethan and Walky are makin’ out.
Is Walky wearing Joyce’s sweater vest?
So Joyce is a yaoi fan now? Interesting twist for her.
There’s nothing in the bible that says that one can’t WATCH two dudes makin’ out.
This was actually my first thought seeing that panel, and was going through the comments looking for someone else that said it Almost shocking I got this far, but the Whovians were clogging them up I guess.
I enjoy the “A Talking Cat?!” tile below D&MM’s.
Willis did not make this up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-h-KpG2tHM
It’s a… particular movie, that’s for sure.
No, I can’t come up with any better adjectives. I tried.
That is awful and my children will be begging to watch it.
Me starting Avatar: The Last Airbender: “Oh, how cute, Nickelodeon thinks they can anime.”
Joyce in panel 4 = me, half a season later.
Avatar came out at the tail end of my “Cartoons are only for kids” phase.
I’m still not sure if it was just good timing, or the actual catalyst for the end of that era.
You know, I never see the “cartoons are for kids” thing.
Me neither. Animation is my favorite form of art, period.
If I had a choice between saving the Mona Lisa from a fire, or the last known copy of Duck Amuck, then Da Vinci can suck it.
Agreed! though Mona Lisa is not his best work IMO anyway.
I discovered Avatar after I’d graduated from college and had had a Real Job for plural years. I watched the whole thing via Netflix discs. On my own Netflix account. Kids shmids.
Looney Tunes has, even before their anvil-dropping days, made humor out of such topics as transvestitism/crossdressing, strippers, drug use, war, murder… and I remember reading somewhere that Hitler showed up in charicature at one point.
Oh, and one character chasing another with a loaded shotgun. Something about hunting “wascally wabbits…”
No one is asking the most important question here. Which is what Walky thinks about the old comics.
Oh crap, Ruth is going to kill Joyce
There’s going to be a meeting, remember?
Ohhh, right, I forgot about that.
So did Joyce.
That is exactly how I became a brony. And an Adventure Time fan. And a Gravity Falls fan. And an Avatar fan. And a Young Justice fan, but not a Fantern, cus I already was a big Green Lantern comic fan and I could tell just by looking at the promos it would distill everything I love about the comics and build upon it.
I have not seen Gravity Falls yet, have to check that out
I was gonna go all poetic about how you really have to watch it, but I find it best to go all sincere up in this hizzy. It’s a really good show, I can’t reccomend it enough.
It’s pretty meh I think. Better than a lot of kids shows nowadays that aren’t made by DC.
I’m actually a GL comic reader too (before New 52, never picked it up after that) and I gotta say the animated series did pretty well in capturing the idea of Green Lantern from the comic onto an animated series.
I tried, but I couldn’t find any good places to watch it without suffering from excessive lag, advertisements, and other assorted annoyances.
Well, there are DVDs available, I’m sure you can rent them sometime.
Ah yes, Alien Nation, the prelude to Ape Wars.
Another one bites the dust!
And another one down, and another one down and another one bites the dust. Hey, gonna get you too, another one bites the dust.
Hey! I’m gonna get you, too… Another one bites the dust!
(Interestingly, the bassline that song is at the exact BPM for proper CPR chest-compressions. Also at the same BPM? “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees.)
My dad told me about that. He also mentioned that the instructor that told them this said, “One is better than the other, because the other is is not going to inspire confidence in your ability.”
Considering only 8% of victims survive CPR, maybe it’s the other way around that’s more accurate.
Panel 4: My reaction to Dragon Ball.
Sounds like Joyce wants six seasons and a movie.
I know you’re referencing Community, but D&MM had SEVEN seasons, at least one made-for-TV movie, and a shitty M.Night Shyamalan live-action movie.
Apparently the show was so good that Joyce had to remove her vest.
…So is Joyce now going to make bad fanart where Dexter submits to God?
And Monkey Master. And the banana salesman who’s mostly a background character but has a couple entertaining gags. And that one other background lady with the funny hat.
That’s a lot of people for Dexter to submit to.
“My cabbages! …er, bananas!”
Judging from panel 4, she might soon be making art where God submits to Dexter.
…which now that I think about it was the plot of “Gloria in Excelsis Dexto”, which I’ve always considered an underrated episode.
I thought it was good, but it always bugged me that Dexter rejected God’s drawing of creation. That was the most beautiful crayon artwork I’d ever seen. *Sheds tear*
My guess is that Walky went home and Joyce is looking at Ethan’s dick.
So…assuming season three, Alien Nation, and moving ahead five hours…also assuming Walky actually kept going, so the little plot threads that pick up in that episode can come to fruition…
Oh, hell. That’s Dexter, Be Not Proud, isn’t it?
That bwas my reaction when I first saw URUSEI YATSURA waaaay back in ’94
My reaction to LoR, then Game of Thrones. These are just the most recent, over past few years, addictions.
I’ve been a comic fan and Sci Fi fan since grade school, thru college: added Star Trek, especially Science fiction books from the 50′s and 60s, and more. Varies addictions to numerous to mention.
One that never got me: I feel absolutely nothing for ‘ponies’, ‘ponys’ or however you wish to spell it. I always try to keep an open mind on other’s obsessions, after all, l I know many others offer me that consideration.
But grown men getting all up and about cartoon ponies created for little girls…nope just don’t see it. But that’s just Imo. Gotta be something there I’m just not seeing (thank God).
Man, I just read the entirety of “Roomies” and “It’s Walky” and now I can’t read this comic the same way ever again. Now I gotta look for reference upon reference and constantly compare it in my head to what I loved in the originals. Funny thing is, I read this before reading those and “Shortpacked” and I’m like, “woooooow.” Well, at least Mike is just about the same in any universe. Forgive me for my ranting, I literally just finished reading “It’s Walky” and am now on the part where people had to pay if they wanted the story to continue, I’m just loving these webcomics.
Could someone please tell me if Dexter and the Monkey Master is a legit thing or an in-universe only thing cause the comments keep throwing me off so bad.
They’re in the Walkyverse of the comics, and they’re both hilarious and sociopaths XD
Ahh okay then
Gooble Gobble, Gooble Gobble, One of US One of US.
Wow a Freaks reference! Now I’m impressed and, since this is the scariest movie of all time, afraid….
I read this as a Ramones reference, but same diff
Also known as the Doctor Who Affect. The episodes Blink, End of Time (pts 1+2), The Eleventh Hour, and then the season 5 two-part finale, and any one that /can/ get into it /will/ get into it.
No, wearing a bow tie and suspenders and speaking in a fake English accent is putting on a Dr. Who Affect. I crack myself up sometimes…
dang it… effect not affect. i swear, i thought i had that sorted properly. it’s like except and accept…. oi. Yeah, the Doctor Who Effect… totally meant that one.
Thus begins Joyce’s transformation into an Atheist.
Is nobody else trying to figure out which story arc from “the older comic books” this episode is based off of? My immediate guess would be the end of the Year Zero arc, but there are a few other places (the HA holding and zapping all the SEMME kids one by one would be my second) that could make sense.
Probably the in-universe indie comic book, not something from It’s Walky.
Though we do know Dorothy’s favorite episode includes Head Alien ruining a wedding.
so, i’m confused, is this an actual show, or something Willis made up?
It can be both.
It’s based on two characters from the Walkyverse.
ok. Willis could probably sell it. Cartoon Network needs some new shows. (really, it seems like it could be interesting[i'm a bit of a cartoon nerd]).
Huh. She really is easy to brainwash.
“…and somebody stole my vest.”
This is disturbingly similar to how I got sucked into watching MLP:FiM and Avatar: The Last Airbender. Pretty close to my Doctor Who experience as well, though there were more ups and downs there.
The worst 153 comments ever for a DoA single strip!
looks alot like me when I decided to watch “high school of the dead” and “Rosairo vampire”
Complete in one word: “Once you go geek, you’ll never go….”
holy hell i just found your comic 6 hours ago. man awesome is only way i can describe my now sleepless night
I love Joyce’s expression in panel 2! Hah!
What does the hover text mean? Is it referring to Eric Roberts the actor, and if so, what does he have to do with this?
I’m trying to figure that out too. Maybe we’re just supposed to assume that Eric Roberts is the voice actor for Monkey Master. He doesn’t seem to be in the news lately…
Well, if this week accomplishes nothing else we now know what Joyce looks like as an anime character ala panel four.
Man, you must watch some weird anime.
We’ve all been there, Joyce
Yesss… new media that gets through her ‘science propaganda’ barriers…
Joyce NOOOoooo !
Don’t let this culture of snarkyness corrupt you !
Addiction!!! Da Da DUhhhh.
and now Joyce knows how I felt when discovering Code Geass.
What happened to Joyce’s sweatervest in the last panel?
Joyce has DE-VESTED herself!
Reminds me of myself after watching the entire season one of MLP. And i really was like Joyce, just wanting to watch like one or two episodes to know what my friends are talking about and to have justified reason to roll my eyes at them for liking a sissy show.
Turned out it was a damn fun run. Same for Joyce here.
Yes, yes. We will take over the world with cuteness and morals!!! MUWAHAHA
Fun Fact, In Panel 4, Joyce is actually talking about Ethan. He had taken off his shirt a few seconds earlier.
I could believe that
Also, that was my reaction to Doctor Who, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Homestuck, Dumbing of Age, Looking for Group comic, Least I Could Do, and when i was much younger Pokemon.
For all the “Proud” Bronies…I’ll just leave this in here.
Late, I know, but after the comment “You know how Comic-Con is sort of for losers?”, I have no idea how you could begin to take the rest of it seriously.
wow, i finally caught up. David Willis, you have stolen the better part of two days from me. So many plans unfulfilled, to-dos not done. Stop making it so addictive. And now I have to go find Dexter and Monkey Monster. You are diabolical.
Bootleg scans of the original “Alien Nation” comic book!
Happened to me with Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Danny Phantom, Teen Titans, Digimon and Pokemon.
You know it’s serious when she takes off her vest
