I was wondering what happened to them.
Glad someone finally did that
What I can’t believe is that Dina actually managed to bring herself to touch him. I imagine gloves and a great deal of water and soap was involved.
Now I’m imagining Dina bathing him. Thanks.
Damn it, stop fueling the ship. Nobody wants that.
Yotomoe did. >.<
That one is all on you my friend.
Now I’M imagining it! You cruel monster!
I BLAME YOTOMOE FOR EVERYTHING
That’s probably for the best.
Who says she touched him?
Dina: I keep scrubbing, but it will not come out! It will never come out!!!
Is that an InuYasha reference?
More like Macbeth
“Out, damned spot!”
*Crying Game music*
That expression is just so appropriate.
Dina just had to think I dinosaur would get him out of her territory.
Any dinosaur worth their salt would use a grappling hook to remove predators from their territory
You didnt see it but when everyone left Dina and her parents turned into a pack or Dromeasaurs and attacked him. The Faz fainted and they could tie him up easy.
Walked right into that one, huh?
O-oh gods, poor Dina, she had to touch that little creep. If it was up to me, I’d send that little creep into the pool.
all of my yes
WHY IS THE HEAD STILL ATTACHED?
And here I thought Dina couldn’t be any more my favorite.
All Hail Dina!
Dina for the win!
Go Dina! Go Dina! Go Dina Go!
Dina is the best Dina to ever Dina.
Don’t Dina in Dina. Dina in the Dina that believes in Dina!
And that, kids, was the day I asked out your Papa Yotomoe. Because he made a joke concerning Dina and Gurren Lagann. Don’t judge my heart.
I think you’re gonna have a lot of competition on that, Fedora.
Also, it’s odd this joke happens on the same night I finish Gurren Lagann finally.
Don’t you two make me blush! DON’T YOU DO IT.
scoot over and add one to the list! it’s been my top fav anime for a long time ~
I’d say the odds are 50/50 Yotomoe’ll have his own little band of admirers courting him by the end of this storyline.
…Arguably, he already has one. Hm.
In my Fanfic Yotomoe hooks up with all of you.
oooh, what kind of band are we? I hope it’s a band of thieves.
Ironically the top of the page has lots of people who love me (I can’t imagine why) while further down I’m pretty sure everyone finds me evil.
Not evil persay, we see you as more of a punkish rougue.
Is ‘dina’ going to become a new name-verb now?
Yes, it’s the opposite of “Dan”.
I’m liking this idea!
Dina is love. Dina is life.
Dina is dinosaur!
Amen, Opus! I knew you were my kind of people as soon as I saw the avatar with the ‘bent bike.
Why IS the parrot, anyway?
C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER ^
Ultra… Ultra……………. ultra………..
So, is this one of Faz’s kinks, or is Dina really Amazi… BANG!!!
Faz did it to himself.
I could see Dina managing to get him to do that.
Dina confirmed to be AmaziGirl.
Faz can confirm that Dina is Amazi-bang. This chart shows all the says in which Faz explored her potentia.
“Please return THIS.”
…The Faz has feelings too, you know!
Faz is a demon bent only on pain. He has no true soul.
Not even Dark Soul?
More like a sole fascination with sex.
… only a heel.
No it doesn’t.
Ya, Arousal, Heat and occasional smugness
and faz is aroused by this
Why do you think the duct tape was needed? Faz wouldn’t stop saying that exact line.
Dina has a grappling hook?
My first thought too
I assumed she got it out of Amber’s closet.
I figured it was Amazi-Girl’s, too. Maybe this will lead to some secret identity shenanigans.
The Great Faz envisaged this scenario in his fanfic. In his fanfic, he is not the tied up one.
Oh no, he was still tied up. They were both tied up.
I imagine that Faz and Fortress Ominous would make great friends. THEY MUST NEVER MEET, THE CREEPINESS WOULD TEAR THE WORLD ASUNDER!
Welp, I know what Monday’s Shortpacked will be now, don’t think Willis ideas
YOU SEE!? EVEN DINA SHIPS IT!!!
What you did there. I see it.
All the way to Abu Dhabi.
Best comment evar!
This is one if the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Congratulations! You won a Faz!
The greatest prize of all.
If “greatest” is another word for absolute worst then yes.
There are many ways to be “The greatest”.
Faz is all of them, even those that contradict each other.
That tape over his mouth is the only reason he still lives in Ruth’s presence.
Dina is best character. An alt comic with dina in one shot awkward social situations would be frequented by me.
I’m not as adorable, but otherwise I pretty much live in such a webcomic.
This is officially the update in which Dina becomes the best character ever.
Yes. This is the greatest single strip that David Willis has ever made.
She doesn’t even look angry or frustrated…. Just tired and sad….. Damn
She’s sad that the man of her dreams has to go. She’s hiding her passion behind snide remarks.
She has assembled some facial ques. . . again.
I think she looks somewhat disturbed.
Well, she got rid of the disturbance.
WAT R U DOIN.
Wild FAZ was caught! Give a nickname to FAZ?
Faz’s moves are:
Luckilly Dina learned Constrict.
Faz would like to learn CHART MAKING. But Faz can only know 4 moves! What would you like Faz to forget?
1, 2, and… Poof! Faz forgot SWEET KISS and… Faz learned CHART MAKING!
Faz used Chart Making!
It had no effect.
I’m not sure any of Faz’s looks qualify as mean.
Scary Face, maybe?
Creepy face, more likely
You know it’s serious when Dina is out of neutral.
Ship him to Abu Dhabi and make sure the return address says Siberia. 😀
Just stick him in a wooden box and forget the air holes.
Have him pick up Nermal while he’s there…
oh wow… old school references
As soon as someone said Abu Dhabi, I instantly thought the same thing. Old School FTW!
Dina continues to prove she is the most surprising and awesome character evar.
Willis, you know what time it is. TIME FOR ME TO USE MY ARTISTIC POWER TO SHIP THE SHIPS THAT YOU REFUSE!!!
Once it has begun it cannot be stoooooooopped!
Yotomoe is basically Pringles, but horrifying.
Are you saying Pringles normally aren’t?
They’re unnatural and wrong!
You have something against salted cardboard?
This is the greatest evil. It must not occur.
…It occurred already but noone has clicked my link.
Hey, you hear the news about your avatar?!
I’ll believe it when I see it (’cause they’ve been saying for years they were going to make a trilogy of movies, but nothin’).
You are history’s greatest monster.
I’ll post it here, to make it more visible to new readers: http://www.reddit.com/r/eyebleach
It’s a “subredit” of cute, non-offensive, and helpful stuff to unsee stuff like that.
CRAWLING IN MY SKIN
I’ll have a bottle of brain bleach, please.
Why did I click ? WHY DID I ? WHY Yotomoe ? Whyyyyyy ?
http://www.reddit.com/r/eyebleach, it’s not “brain” bleach, but it should help!
Bad Yotomoe, BAD!
*Smacks with newspaper*
That’ll do Yotomoe…That’ll do!
*assumes fetal position on floor*
I’m not drunk enough for this yet. BRB.
Your evil is great.
You’re clearly insane. That’s the only way anyone could draw this without their eyes closed and a psychotherapist on standby.
My favourite part is how she’s telling him to stop talking, like she really needs this but just cannot stand the greasy, skeevy feeling Faz’s voice gives her.
I… I think I ship them too, now. YOTOMOE, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?!
“Image failed to load because it contains errors.”
Well then. I think Firefox is trying to tell me something about your ship.
Firefox is channeling Dina.
Firefox knows what Yotomoe did. It knows…
good game firefox
You are the evilest person to ever evil. It’s official. Poor poor Dina.
Dina, you forgot to apply correct postage!
She’s shipping it postage due, and without a return address.
That package is going to get lost in the ether of the postal system.
What a tragedy.
That’s not enough duct tape…
So even in this universe, Dina’s answer to most problems appears to be with rope traps.
Haha, just what I was thinking.
Dina’s eyes in the last panel. She’s seen things, man.
She’s the veteran of the great faz.
Speaking, asking people for things, that look in her eyes….
Faz broke her… she’s gonna go beserk on the Cast….
Faz helped her realize her inner pervert.
But not for people.
From now on Dina will perv on dinosaurs.
So, Dina will become the next Christie Sims, a dinosaur erotica novelist? (Sadly for humanity, this is a thing.)
I saw it. And with the knowledge, that Dina always was a little different, I’m afraid that book would be even creepier than “Mounted by a Griffon”.
Ahem. Ever heard of Touched by Venom?
Why did you tell me this!!?!?!
You mean she doesn’t already?
Faz is wondering when the sexing will begin, as this is one of his many ways Faz is great. If his hand was free, he would show you a chart.
I’ve got my phone preprogrammed with 100 faz charts. 40% of them are about Faz’s penis. In fact I have a chart that tells me the percentage of charts that are about my penis…The only question is…does THAT chart count as a chart about Faz’s penis?
Considering the context, yes it would. It counts because it’s a summary of the charts about Faz’s penis.
Cantor’s Paradox, in delightful fazdick form
Ruth is stunned speechless. That doesn’t happen often.
Either that or she is asking herself why she didn’t do this to ____________ (fill in the blank).
You know, I think Freshman Family Weekend was worth enduring just for this moment!
…who am I kidding this is a hollow victory /sobs
Has the whole weekend passed? I feel like it’s only been one day
It has, but a lot of shit has gone down in just this one day.
Hey that’s Amber’s grappling hook.
It’s obviously Amazi-Girls’. How else do you think Amber knows her? BDSM FTW! *is bricked*
I laughed. I laughed for a minute straight, thank you, Willis. You have brought mirth to my life.
I like her. I want her babies. To sacrifice. For my dark god.
Quoth the Raven: HA HA!
Did even Dina’s parents tire of the great Faiz?
I like to imagine the family ganged up on him while pretending to be triceratops or something.
Which Faz missinterpretted for love making, as he actually has no idea what it feels like.
OMG that would be the most adorable thing ever! The triceratops thing, not Faz.
Now I wish I could draw so that I could draw THAT.
I don’t care if this was the only mythology gag Willis ever did. I love it. I love it, so much. I’m so happy.
mythology gag? dun get it, pls explain?
Dina looks so unhappy. What has Faz done?
A better question is what HASN’T he done!
The pun in the alt-text made me gag.
Yeah, I wish Willis would show more restraint with the bad puns.
Hey you can’t blame him, he just wanted to tie things up nicely.
It was bound to happen, sooner or later.
We must all grapple with that awful truth
Yeah, it’s not really a shocker seeing some of the readership at the end of their rope.
Then they demand a tie in series.
Let’s not get roped into that.
where’d she find a grapplehook?
It was in Amber’s closet. I know it’s hard, but go back and re-read the early strips with Blaine and you’ll see it mentioned.
She found a Rope in a desk and a Hook in the basement, and then just combined them in her inventory. Assuming life works like point and click adventure games.
First I have this empty apartment room. I went to housewares store and using my debit card in my inventory and I gain several items. I place those items in my empty apartments. An event occured a couple weeks later when someone like my room and rent it for a couple years.
Today I combine rice, eggs and sausages into “dinner” item. It increase my HP and allows me to leave home to gain some more items!
The hooks are backwards – they should be pointed back toward the rope, not away from it. Proof that this is not Amazi-girl/Amber’s grappling rope, as her equipment would be rigged properly.
Uh, how are they supposed to grapple anything when pointing inward?
Dina has initiated bondage. The great Faz graciously accepts her advances.
Dina’s foreplay skills are intense. Have you ever seen raptors in the bedroom?
Only one- Oh crap…clever girl *mauled by raptors*
Well this webcomic still has me HOOKED, but I’m going to have to GRAPPLE with it’s punchlines.
I’ll see me my way out…….
I wonder if Ruth has a human-sized shredder available?
And a full set of the Turtles too.
Damn, gotta quit drinking milk when reading the comments.
Amazing. +1000 points for Dina.
And there stands Ruth, wondering if that day could get any stranger.
I actually laughed out loud at that one. People think I’m nuts but this is so funny. You are the one Dina. Love it.
Go to the corner and think about what you did.
http://www.reddit.com/r/eyebleach again. (It’s not nearly as bad as it sounds, it’s just cute stuff to help unsee stuff like that.
why would you post it twice now the comment section has double the horror
Why, Yotomoe, why?
(Throws up) good god man why would you bring that here
I love it. I ship it super hard.
This picture…I like it.
ANOTHER!!!!! *Smashes Image*
This ship will sail on the ocean of vomit.
I like it!
Bwahaha, you posted it again. Classic! 😀
This is horrible and yet wonderful at the same time.
What do you mean I can’t by eye bleach by the drum!!! This is an emergency!!!
Yotomoe has proven his evil goes to the core. One day you shall pay for your dastardly ways.
I tried to load your image again and Firefox still says it contains errors.
Firefox refuses to ship it.
You are lucky. You have not seen it, and you are only missing horrors.
And then I looked at Ruth, and laughed harder. Yeah, she is definitely at a loss for words on this one and I love that too.
Checked your link, and gotta tell you Yotomoe, I love ya, but this is not one of your better ‘ships.
Dina just couldn’t…
You may be making fun of him now, but Faz will emerge as a beautiful butterfly.
Or one of those really horrible moths.
This one, to be exact.
Nope nope nope nope
He (or she) looks pretty relaxed. And so fuzzy.
Dina, don’t you ever stop being lovable and awesome.
Yes, send it back too where it came! Wait, what happens to Ambers dad? He was kicked off campus rite?
GUYS. GUYS I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING I THINK I NEED HELP.
I have decided last panel Ruth is thinking someone had a worse day than she did.
And the rest of us just wished someone invented brain bleach.
Someone did. Well, it’s technically Eye Bleach. Here; http://www.reddit.com/r/eyebleach
Thank you, Dina.
Willis, this is the best strip you have ever done. Or will do.
amazi-girl is going to be awfully sad the next time she needs that grappling hook and rope.
Nah, it’s for a good cause. A VERY good cause.
Thank you, Willis. You made my weekend.
What I would give to have seen Dina grappling hook Faz…
Sarah and Dina two girls that know how to deal with creeps.
But can they deal with crepes?
OH MY SIDES
And then EVERYONE knew about the grappling hook. And that Dinah is Amazi-girl.
Does anyone else read Dina like they would Momo from QC?
Hmmm. Maybe a bit.
Not really. For me, Momo has a higher-pitched voice than most with a slight over-enunciation of certain syllables and a very slight accent (so basically, like a hastily dubbed anime character) whereas Dina has a more standard voice. I picture Dina’s voice as your typical small asian girl, only more mature (i.e. less shrill and high pitched) with a very quiet yet matter-of-fact tone.
Pretty much this, Momos voice would be very cartoonish, whereas I suspect Dina sounds very deadpan.
Dinah is learning. Often, you don’t want to outright kill your opponents. Because then they become martyrs. (I’m looking at you Prime.) In those cases, you want to disable your opponent and shatter their hopes of overcoming you.
Other times, you fusion cannon them to that junkyard in the sky.
I just read that with Frank Welker’s voice.
Dude, Frank Welker is the definitive voice of Megatron. But David Kaye comes in close second.
David Kaye is the definitive voice of the better Megatron.
Oh Snap! 😀
I just wonder how long Dina and Faz have been standing there waiting for Ruth to show up.
I think she’s dragging him from her room when she met Ruth on the hallway.
Which implies that she spent at least the length of an American Football game ‘tying him up’.
I have a feeling not all of these separate threads of continuity have been happening entirely concurrently.
It means there are 2 Dinas out there. Dina clones?
There’s actually a whole park of them on an island but a handful somehow made it off.
Will there be a Sauro-girl?.
If only we would get a seperate comic stripe just to see Dina beat up this loser and putting in that wrapping.
I like to think that after both Amber and Blaine left, the entire Sazaru family went ninja on poor little ol’ Faz…
That’s not Amazi-girl’s grappling hook… it’s Haruka’s
Really must try harder to remember which strip I’m commenting on.
So delighted by this comic. So, so delighted.
yay!! Dina’s being awesome!! I hope that in time we see more of Dina initiating her actions, rather that accidentally being dragged along with everyone else. she deserves to choose to do something (other than choosing to get rid of this menace that was abandoned in her room) more often!
This is what happens when you overly stress out Dina.
Hehe.. this made my Saturday morning so much better.
Willis, thank you thank you thank you.
This is where the grappling hook gives amazi-girl’s secret identity as Dina away, and Danny promptly dans his way into the most awkward situation possible.
Then Dina ties up Danny and leaves him outside with Return To Sender.
This is by far the most erotic thing Faz has ever experienced.
Faz is great.
Your Gravatar fits perfectly. Or was that the point?
It was surely custom made.
This is my favorite page of any webcomic ever.
Wait. Is that Amazigirl’s grappling hook.
Checkov’s grappling hook. It was mentioned in the first act, so someone had to get tied up by the third act.
You know she’s already everyone’s favorite, right, Willis? You didn’t have to add this to the awesome.
But thank you for doing it anyway.
In my head Faz keeps trying to use a safety word and Dina keeps ignoring him until she slaps on the duct tape.
Why does he want sardines??
Do we even want to know where she got the rope?
Amber’s closet. We saw it earlier when Blaine was “inspecting” her room.
Wow! Wouldn’t have guessed that Dina was a practitioner of “kinbaku!” Kinky.
That’s just an old fashioned cocoon. Kinbaku/shibari is much more attractive, even on a male. :p
For some reason I keep thinking about the old Garfield cartoons when he would stick Nermal in a box with a few air holes and try to mail him to Abu Dhabi. Wonder how much it would cost to ship off Faz?
Angry Dina? I am both slightly scared and strangely aroused at the same time.
Now you know how Joyce must have felt.
Faz is Amber’s step-brother, right … and he showed up with Amber’s dad (or is it step-dad?) Blaine. Faz and Dina were both in the background during the altercation that led to Blaine’s eventual removal from the dorm by Asma, so Faz should have been aware that his father/step-father had gone out of the room in hot pursuit of Amber and has not come back. So why was he even still in the dorm himself? Why wasn’t he out trying to find Blaine, who is/was his ride back home?
Because he was trying to get some Dinaction. Instead he ended up getting Dinied.
First comment ever… I love this comic because I went to IU for music and lived in Read-Landes and it’s like going to college all over again :DDD Also the art is good and stuff, and storylines, etc… blah blah blah…
THIS. IS. THE. AWESOME!!!
++ bonus for using the grappling hook.
Why do we hate Faz again?
Because of this shit: http://www.dumbingofage.com/2013/comic/book-3/04-just-hangin-out-with-my-family/paid-2/
Mostly cause of stuff he did in another universe.
No, not really. I mean, I never liked the dude, as a person or a character, but it wasn’t until the strip Kelly linked above that I wanted to punch his smug little smirk through the back of his skull.
I’ve been seriously worried about Dina since Amber left the room. I’m glad to see that she can take care of her own problems.
According to this chart, none truly hate Faz. They are simply envious of his greatness or attempting to deny their lust for him.
Wait wait wait, why did she have a grappling hook? Oh… right superhero roommate.
Meow meow meow meow faz has been trolled lololololololoolololololoooololololllololo
Dina is more awesome than I realized!
I recently reread It’s Walky and I was struck by the fact that I didn’t really think much of Dina until after she…um, don’t want to do spoilers, but after the Big Dina Event. And I kinda felt like there was a disconnect between the BE and AE (before event/after event). I wondered if this was due to Willis growing as a storyteller – BE, HE knew how awesome Dina was but maybe didn’t express it in storytelling and AE, he knew how to show US that Dina was awesome.
Or maybe he decided retroactively certain features of her personality and she became more awesome as time went on? Not sure.
The day is NEVER over.
’tis ne’r e’r o’er …
Finally getting back to DOA after reading It’s Walky again and I still can’t get over how different Dina looks.
That’s one loose end tied up.
Looks like someone’s about to be outed.
Oh this is PRICELESS! GO DINA!
Mind, I’m still a Faz + Dina shipper, but we all know the Faz is immune to subtlety. I still say we need to see Dina trying to … y’know, I can’t think of any phrasing that can’t be taken the wrong way … okay, “Dina giving into her dinosaurial feeding instincts” works, perhaps.
Aw… she coulda tipped him down the trash chute, I just realised…
Surprised that grappling hook wasn’t inserted someplace uncomforable.
I am soooo cheering
Damin it Willis, Dina is already awesome, stop making her even more awesome.
Don’t he dare!
The fact that Ambers’ dad just left him there says some things about their relationship.
Oo. So this is where Dina finds Amber’s thinger.
everyone seemed excited to see him before but now that he is here everybody is sick ofFaz
You know, it strikes me that there is another reason Dina duct taped his mouth (other than silencing him): it means she (and we) do not have to see his creepy smile.
Isn’t that just silencing him symbolically as well as verbally?
Is it just me, or does Faz remind anyone else entirely too much of the Happy Mask Salesman?
OMG dying of laughter!
“Faz is victim of entrapment!” And he ends up like this.
