Where have I heard that before…
Shit’s going down.
Shit’s going down and hit the fan.
The vertical fan?
The fan’s about to come looking for the shit.
So hard I half suspect that the fan is the shit’s ungrateful step-child. Or the fan is Amber’s mom and the shit is Blaine. Either one.
You know, Walky, I’m really hating you now. I guess you’re my Danny.
Or Ethan. So far Walky is probably the 4th least hatable guy, behind Joe and Jacob and maybe Mike.
I’d say Mike’s worse, he probably knows what an asshole he is but still acts that way.
If you read It’s Walky and Shortpacked then you kind of grow to love Mike
Mike is so Mikeable. XD I love him. And not hating Walky at the moment…..he’s trying to help his girlfriend, nothing wrong with that. He’s not being stupid or useless or obtuse or….every other synonym for Danny.
…wait, when was the last time we’ve seen Mike? Did he fall into a black hole or something?
I think Willis was having trouble stopping Mike from making fun of absolutely all the other characters, and so doesnt include Mike unless absolutely necessary. I think I read it on a tumblr post. Don’t quote me on this.
Makes me wonder if we’re going to see Drunk Mike. (Assuming alcohol still has the same… effect… on Mike as it did in Shortpacked!.)
In Book 1, in the bonus content, Willis talks about how Mike is his overexposed character. So what you’re saying, PureFedora, is consistent with that.
Where’s Mike? Well, the parents visited just the other day. So many moms, so little time…. poor guy’s just tired.
You kind of grow to Stockholm Syndrome Mike.
Walky is acquiring a taste for Dannying.
DANNY doing this would be Dannying, Walky’s not screwing anything up for himself or anyone he cares about. Amber isn’t a member of his social circle and he’s had no interaction with Amazi-Girl.
Well, Walky should be talking to Sal.
As I mentioned yesterday, Sal took off on her mortorcycle. And is likely still pissed at him. Just because he should do something doesn’t mean doing it NOW is a good idea.
Yeah, if he knows anything at all about Amazi-Girl, it’s just that she’s the crazy chick whose grandstanding let Joyce’s almost-rapist get away.
Plus whatever insanity Billie wrote in her article, assuming he bothered to read it.
And while he’s encountered Amber a couple times, I don’t believe they’ve ever had a conversation. He just knows her as that crazy chick who dragged Joyce’s boyfriend out of Galasso’s.
I’m not a big Walky fan myself, but I don’t understand the hate here. He knows his girlfriend is writing about Amazi-girl and he happened to find a good picture of her on the internet, so obviously he’s showing it to her. What’s wrong with that?
… Or is it just because this might make Amber’s weekend even shittier? In that case, I’d get a generic “damn you Willis”, but Walky is rather innocent anyway.
I think it’s because Dorothy told Walky how important studying is for her and (I think) Walky kind of kept brushing that off since he doesn’t see the importance of it. To me, it’s like he’s not really respecting her wishes on leaving her alone so she can study by saying that the Amazi-Girl reveal is more important than her studying.
Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but Walky is (un)intentionally dismissing her feelings by being “helpful.”
How many times have we seen Walky deliberately interrupting her studying? Just this one time, I think.
Just saying, we’re taking a single incident out of proportion.
When has Walky brushed off her studying? He’s always been respectful of her choices and even here he’s offering her something useful in return for taking a break.
After looking back I realized I was thinking about a person that is kind of similar to Walky. Whoopsy.
Damnit Walky! YOU’RE EVEN THE BEST AT TAKING PHOTOS OF AMAZI-GIRL!?
What AREN’T you good at?
Did he take the photo or did someone email it to him?
“damn you social media” implies internet involvement.
Damn you internet! You have betrayed me!
Everybody betrayed me! I fed with this world!
The picture is basically exactly the angle of the picture taken on 12/25/13 which was not taken by Walky (unless Walky is also a masked superhero).
Seemed obvious to me. That dude probably twittered it or something.
Can you even twitter photos like that? I don’t twit often….
Oh yes. You can. I do it fairly regularly.
Look out Walky. One more thing you’re good at and you’re crossing into Mary Sue territory.
Well, apparently he’s also a master of disguise because apparently he was that ginger haired dude from earlier.
If that was the case, than Sal was right, Walky really does seem whiter.
No one catches pictures as good as Walky.
Just imagine the Gaston song, but with Walky.
I expect that version would involve less chest hair and more bowel movements.
Craps like walky
Noone Braps like Walky
Noone expels noxious gas like Walky.
Um…it’s not a photo people…didn’t you all see the little triangle symbol? That there is a VIDEO. Amber is really screwed…
Actually there are two arrows, the other pointing left, hidden in Amber’s midsection. Walky’s browsing a gallery of images. (They’re probably not all of Amazi-Girl. I’d say most of them are of McNuggets.)
Boxes of McNuggets or single individual McNuggets? :0
I kind of expected a different direction for this, admittedly.
The licky-style direction.
I’ve learned to just not expect anything with this webcomic.
I’ve learned not to expect just anything from this webcomic.
Need to finish that line!! -YOU WILLIS. Perfect avatar for it too.
IT’S ME AUSTIN! IT WAS ME, ALL ALONG AUSTIN!
You… I like you, Mr. McMahon.
Still taking notes.
Wow walky making all the rite movies, or is he?
Wait, Walky’s making movies?
Moves, mobile auto correct strikes again damnit!
A scoop for some spooning?
Let us hope so. For the sake of Walky, and the rest of the internet, we hope to see some spooning compensation.
… Seriously. DAMN, Amber’s weekend sucks.
We are to assume that the unidentified kid with the smartphone posted the pic on some site or another? But all it does is show Amazi-Girl in costume; what great new clue would that yield that would help Dorothy blow her cover?
A clear view? I mean it’s easier to get an identity when you have a still image to cross reference stuff with
Step one: acquire picture.
Step two: acquire Amazigirl costume
Step three: force random suspects to wear the Amazigirl costume and pose in the exact same way
Step Four: person who looks most like Amazigirl goes to prison
I thought it went
Step one: Grow shitty chinstrap beard
Step two: Acquire Amazigirl costume
Step three: Prance around wearing Amazigirl costume and arguing with a mannequin.
Step four: Fall out of window.
It’s like the Cinderella slipper! But with prison!
“No, I’m Amazi-Girl!”
“Nein, I’m Amazi-Girl!”
“Nyet, I’m Amazi-Girl!”
“Fine, crucify ALL of them.”
“…and therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words “Ich bin ein Amazi-Girl!”….JFK
Sooo, Amazi-Girl was on the grassy knoll?
You might recall that the last time (we’re aware of) that someone took a photo of Amazi-Girl, it was Dorothy. Amazi-Grl proceeded to cape the phone out of her hand and erase the photo, but did let slp that she was a track-and-field champion, upon which Dorothy pointed out that she now knew AG’s basic build, central point of activity (i.e. her dorm), and a way of tracing her. The use of a photo will mostly be to help her get through the search more quickly.
I sense the perfect storm is brewing.
Yes. And it involves twins.
That’s what happens when you take Selfies in-costume, Amber. Twitter ruins lives!
Actually, I understand this. He owes nothing to Amazi-Girl, and is just trying to help Dorothy. Focusing on the relationship counts for something. She has been able to avoid being captured on film before; Walky probably just got lucky. Good for him.
Okay why am I just now feeling Walky’s hoodie?
You can actually feel it?
I need a new acid dealer…
It… it feels like LCD.
*touches hoodie through computer screen*
Hey, you’re right… It really does feel like an LCD.
It feels like ecstasy man!
Amazi-Girl should’ve taken notes from Batman.
This can only end in disaster. DOOOOOOOOOOOM.
The FPS or DOCTOR DOOM?
Amazigirl must throw the camera phone into MOUNT DOOM.
Amazi-Girl should SING THE DOOM SONG NOW!!
Doom doom doom, doom-doom-doom, doomdoomdoomdoom doomy doomy doom! Doom-doom DOOM, doom-doom DOOM . . . DOOOOOMM!!
Are we there yet?
Is it the DOOM that came to Sarnath?
It looks to me like Dorthy is fishing with one old hook…
I’m not really expecting her to get in to Yale
The comic is stuck in temperal limbo, she likely won’t be going anywhere. They likely won’t be getting out of their first year.
Unless a timeskip occurs.
Next thing you know, we’d be having a long lost brother of one of the main cast who turns out to be an alien.
That WOULD explain Dina.
Or the comic moves in a much slower pace compared to our perception of time?
I believe that. It is it’s own universe
Way to go Walky! An excellent compromise, find a way to score more time, helping Dorothy relax AND score her points for her personal goals!
So if Danny is the love interest…. but Dorothy is the reporter…. Who exactly is Amber’s “Lois Lane”? (UNLEASH THE FANFIC-ERS!)
….Depends on which Lois Lane we look at, the version I mean. I mean, in the old movies….and a lot of the comics from what I’ve seen…Lois Lane is all but helpless/worthless…stupidly getting herself into trouble to attract Superman’s attention and needing rescued….sounds like Danny all over to me.
And yet somehow, she always got the best stories. Sometimes the smartest move is to play dumb, and to be good at it you have to be quite smart.
I am not at home, I’m out gaming,so I can’t really talk.
But damn. Stuff just got real.
dammit, Willis, stop stalling!
I assume Bilfred wishes you to follow up on one of the other plots, likely Blaine showing up.
that will seem like a ridiculous complaint in hindsight
Most of my complaints do, but I reserve the right to throw a tantrum for no good reason.
Say what again! Say what again! I dare you, I double dare you!
No, that’s “boink”. You’re thinking of bouncing.
I really want to see a full scale of that picture now…
Is Walky using his brain to help others now?
I think the red headed kid who took that photo probably attached text to it. Most of that kind of stuff has some sort of description.
Such as “…and next think I know Amazi-girl bounces off the sidewalk in front of me after jumping out the window of the “x” dorm. I saw the corner of her plaid shirt under her costume as she adjusted her glove…”
Should not be hard for an inquiring mind to figure out which window she jumped out of.
HUmmm that brings to mind, if Danny gets hold of this info. he will KNOW that Amazi-girl is Sal. They’re room mates. So who else could’ve jumped out that window? Everyone knows Sal makes exits from the dorm window on a regular basis (or used to).
Amber is not going to have anything left after this shit hits the fan.
Billie is Sal’s roommate. Dina is Amber’s roommate.
She did not come out of a window (at least not this time); she came out through the front door of Clark House and fell down the steps.
Walky knows what the ladies want. *Insert Jazz Music*
I just realized that Walky is trying to follow at least part of Billie’s advice. He’s putting a little effort into one of the “things that just fell into his lap” (that is, Dorothy — who is not a “thing,” but you see what I mean). One point for Walky.
Aaaaaand the cracks start to show
And by ‘busting’, I mean helping her to acquire a chest window.
Oh hoh hoh hoh
Flowers AND an impressive scoop. Good Walky. Very good boyfriend.
*gasps* Story Collision!
Wait, if Amber is exposed won’t that probably mean she’ll be kicked out of uni, what with the amount of laws she’s probably broken with her nocturnal activities (punchin’ folk, for example)?
The mental implosion should be impressive and really sad to watch.
That was in self-defence though, as shown, she doesn’t hit anyone unless they attack first like that time there was vandalism where she instead stole (which would be skipped over because of the next two actions), cleaned and then replaced that sign.
And if they are jerky enough to attack her first, they are likely to pick the fight in the first place. Those guys that tried to attack Danny for instance were likely only beaten up when they tried to attack her first after she decided to seek them out again.
I don’t think she has actually broken any laws except for one where she hit Blaine but she was provoked, has anger issues, and he then tried to hunt her down and tried to assault Ruth.
Hehehe, Dorothy thinks she can get into Yale through hard work and determination…
She would be better off working on a great undergrad record and going grad work in the Ivy League. That happens a lot in Big Ten schools. It’s a Harvard/Yale PhD that looks impressive, not the BA. The undergrad is too often the result of which prep school you went to or legacy status.
I must admit my surprise -I wouldn’t have expected Krosp to be so well-informed about American universities.
Well Krosp is a King, so I suppose a variety of knowledge is inevitable. Also he has to deal with so many Sparks he must learn all he can about the educational system in self-defense. To much trouble to deal with Sparks himself, just ship them off to college. XD
This is very true for prospective employers, and depending on her idea of career pathing before political offices that could matter. However, I think what she is most concerned with is what she can say to voters. Being someone who has an Ivy League education is likely all she cares about, because voters are unlike human resource departments, they largely only care where you went and not what you specifically got there.
We have Dorothy who is really smart who can’t find Amazigirl.
The normally competent Billy and the Daning Danny who met Amazigirl many times but for some reason can’t tell who she is.
Now we have Walky here who is actively using his over competent just to help Dorthoy to find Amazigirl.
This can only end worst for Amber base on the current trend.
This seems to be “make Amber’s life miserable day”.
That’s a very Han Solo hoodie. I like it.
Pretty sure that one Green Lantern movie kind of told that a costume that just covers part of your face isn’t a good costume.
I thought the Green Lantern movie told that a costume that’s just a CGI exposed-musculature texture isn’t a good costume.
I’m really not sure that Yale would be terribly impressed by a story about a somewhat emotionally disturbed vigilante student who dresses up in a yellow costume with a big blue “A” on it.
“Somewhat” emotionally disturbed?
Walky and Dorothy working together to expose a currently emotionally unstable Amber… this can only end spectacularly
Nah, I’m pretty sure Danny’s daning is going to be the main catalyst for her going crazy
To be president its 99% study 99% dream 100% hardwork this is just my opinion!!! Great comic
This is 10% luck,
15% concentrated power of will,
I find taking part in Satanic blood rituals helps to.
And 100% reason to remember the name!
Ok, so I’m not seeing something.
Why didn’t Dorothy do all of the hard work before the time to apply to universities? I have a cousin who I guess has the same economical status as Dorothy (maybe less) and was admitted to Yale and he found scholarships and credits.
Seeing this hard-working Dorothy has always made me wonder why she isn’t there already?
I’m pretty uncomfortable that Walky is pressuring Dorthy not to study, but I guess there are always bad influences in college.
Well, she DOES mention her Amazi-Girl story as something she needs to catch up on. He may be distracting her from one thing she’s behind with, but by helping with another.
It’s been a while since I’ve been school-age, but I’m pretty sure extracurriculars are also important to the application process.
Why is Walky so,… So,…. ARRRRRGGGHHHHH!
I didn’t expect this honestly. But now all I can think is that this will likely turn out to be the final nail in the coffin for Amber’s sanity. Blaine’s thing is going to screw with Amber. Ruth’s news that Blaine tried to sneak in is going to screw with Amber. And this is going to finish off Amber.
I can’t be the only one who’d find it funny if Yale was given her exposure of AmaziGirl as a reason to admit, and responded with something like “and?”
I mean, we follow this stuff so we get it, but if someone at an interview said you should take them because a girl on their campus went around wearing a superhero outfit and they figured out who they were… that would not be much of a clincher.
