We passed $45k, so pledgers got a sneak peek at the first strip of the next storyline, featuring Malaya and Carla. Thanks, everyone!
Especially when it involves Strap-ons.
Now I want to filk/rip off the jingle for THE CLAPPER.
Then do I have a comment for you!
I’m pretty sure a strap-off would be a contest of who’s the more strapping.
Which I suppose could still involve strap-ons…
Does it ever involve NOT strap-ons?
OK she finally home, now she can sit down open a lab top and look it up on Google, not Bing though, Bing is shit.
Bing is for heathens and Devil worshippers.
In the Beginning, there was nothing. Then God created Google. And it was good.
And then God would’ve created the world, but he was too busy watching cat videos on youtube.
Haven’t we all?
Well, he got round to it eventually, so stop your complaining!
He had to, after surpassing his monthly data limit. Those were pretty drastic back then.
Relevant xkcd time!
The only thing I have ever used Bing for is hightlighting right click language translation.
I use Google for that too. The only reason I’ve got Bing on here is that my browsers and my antivirus both came with it.
Bing image search is better, imo
Fecal matter can be useful bing can not
Sarah that just encourages people.
Sarah’s not your kind of people
Something in your makeups
Don’t see eye to eye…
God, I needed an excuse to put a song by Garbage in here.
If flesh could crawl
My skin would fall from
Off my bones and
Run away from here…
Don’t worry Joyce, it has nothing to do with you
and by nothing, I mean EVERYTHING!
And by everything, we mean only your religious views and its influence on you actions…
Your sanity and your secret manipulative nature.
And your general weirdness.
She must feel just awful right now. How magnificent.
Well, you DOUBLE don’t want to know.
Can nobody’s feelings be hurt just this once? Pleeeease?
Mayhap Sarah will dodge this line of questioning via saying “Hey Joyce, I gotta take a dump, be right back” and then she’ll return Joyce freaking out about strap-ons.
I don’t even want to think about what the old lady at the end of the commercial is doing with that…
Maybe some strap-on variation of that creepy old guy at the end of Requiem For a Dream.
Strap-outs? Or strap-step? The second is most definitely a type of music….. I swear!
I’ll tell you, it was about how fucking annoying you are!
Your life and mannarisms are LITERALLY laughable.
Did I mention she’s also Extremely clueless about well, everything. I bet Ethan still hasn’t told her that he tried to come on to her sibling.
Who is also secretly transgender (I think?).
Yaaa we still don’t know what his secret was do we?
I’m pretty sure it’s gonna end up that he’s not religious like they are, and they will disown and possibly attempt to murder him for it
It’s Indiana, not Mississippi. They won’t kill him.
He’ll just have a broken leg and maybe one less finger.
her. It’s been confirmed that Jocelyn (think that’s her name) considers herself female.
what the actual fuck
Hate to tell you, Willis. Some people don’t actually read.
And, based on what people say Ethan’s done, even what they read they [b]definitely[/b] don’t remember any real details.
Though to be fair, in our time almost everything in the comic happened a hell of a long time ago.
And by Ethan I meant Danny. Damn damn damn damn dammity-damn.
One of these days my malapropisms are going to cause an international crisis and thousands of people will die.
Well, to be fair, you were being subtle with the revelation. It is not that hard to miss if you don’t take the time to think about the implication of she calling herself “Jocelyn”
Do they imagine that some Ms Doubtfire type situation is going on behind the scenes?
Yeah, if you’re just reading the strip, and not paying attention to the hovertext or the tags or the fourteen-frickin’-hundred comments on the reveal, it might not be entirely clear what the implications of that URL are.
I’m… not entirely sure if I’m being sarcastic here or not.
I think I glanced over it, didn’t even notice the name, just was like “the secret is writing? OK”
Then later thanks to comments etc I figured it out. Had to go back and read it. Interestingly, while I was rereading it, the tags changed one by one from “Joshua” to “Jocelyn” because Willis had decided to edit all the strips she appeared in that same day.
So yes, I guess I really am that stupid. Or oblivious, either way.
I went into the archives an saw the strip writer, now I know.
“The difference is that “I” don’t want “YOU” to know what the subject is”.
Joyce:” Oh OK…Waaait a minute,you were talking weren’t you? Are planning a surprise party for my Birthday!? 😀
“Ummm yeaaaaaah, Biiiirthdaaaay of cause it was about your surprise birthday”
Surprise! Joyce’s birthday’s not for another seven months. (i.e., somewhere around 2042 our time.)
“Malaya and Carla”
I couldn’t think of much to say about this one, except to comment on the size of Joyce’s eyes and teeth. But then I realized they’re always that big.
So I made them bigger.
Aww, who’s still an adorable little freak of nature? Joyce is!
I she an alien? Wait a minute that might explain a phew things.
The Willis has said there are no aliens from outer space in the Dumbiverse.
Maybe she is an alien from *inner* space.
There were no aliens in that either.
What HAVE you done?
I have looked into the eyes of madness. They’re BLUE.
Joyce is addicted to the spice!
“Huh, I bet this will be pretty fun-JESUS CHRIST THAT’S CREEPY.
Cragalanch has faced thousands of underworld forces of all grotesque types, and this is the most terrified I’ve ever been…..
I like the way you think
I’m just done. XD
Well, they could possibly be larger, but there wouldn’t really be enough face.
“AWOOGA! Humminahummina!” – pervwolf!Joyce
Even better when I read it from bottom.
That was me when Willis announced his stretch goals.
JOYCE: “C’mon! Tell me!”
SARAH: “Um… well, we were talking about how dumb Hymmel the Humming Hymnal is. Yeah. That’s it…”
JOYCE: “I don’t believe you. Everybody loves Hymmel! Well, except Walky…”
Oh come on, you just know that churchmouse was totally getting it nightly in secret. That chastity belt is such a fetish tool.
“Wait. SO you have a chastity belt??”
“Yes, and I plan on leaving it on until..”
“Keylock or passcode?”
“Just answer the question, please????”
“It..its a combination lock.”
“OH..God and the material, what is it made of?”
“Did you just..”
“Just please tell me!”
“Titanium alloy, but why…”
“Oh…oh..oh please tell me it’s a 2007 model. Oh God it would put me over…”
Joyce duck face ha ha.
Love it. And I love the Joyce suspicious face even more. XD
Joyce N. Brown: Sooooper Genius!
I ask here because I can’t find a working Walky forum:
Has anyone ever tried to work up the Walkyverse in Mutants and Masterminds before? And if so… was it posted anywhere on the interwebs? I’m run a game in the Walkyverse (the PCs will be a SEEME squad) and was hoping to find someone who’d done this before.
Ahem. That should be “I’m planning to run” rather than “I’m run”.
Also, it doesn’t have to be Mutants and Masterminds system. That just looked like the best option of the systems I currently own. As much as I enjoy “Pathfinder Modern” I just don’t think it would simulate teenagers punching aliens in the face as well.
I’ve been playing in a DC Adventures game lately, and it’s crossed my mind a couple times to try to stat out Amazi-Girl and the Walkyverse abductees in that system, but I’ve never gotten very far because their abilities are pretty ill-defined.
And, really, given the competence level the Aliens typically display, it hardly matters. Just don’t let H.A. distract you from what a great volleyball he makes, and you’re good to go.
Well, most of the abductees have super strength (enough to “bench press cars”) and increased resilience (enough to not die when slammed into concrete walls hard enough to crack them) so that gives one a bench mark at least.
Having looked at the PL 10 sample characters, that seemed right-ish. Or maybe PL 8? Sal seems to be about on par with “the Princess” (PL 10 Powerhouse) , but Sal is generally considered one of the more powerful abductees.
Oh, and is there a better place to talk about this? I tried looking for a forum (and the obligatory “Off Topic” section) but I couldn’t find a link on any of the webcomic front pages.
I just feel bad discussing an Its Walky game in the comments for a Dumbverse comic that doesn’t even reference that stuff.
Maybe you could try the IIRC channel #dumbingofage from the Nightstar.net server ?
It’s the closest thing to a real forum for David-Willis related stuff that I know of. However, I’m not sure if there are a lot of people hanging there, except maybe around updating-time (when I’m asleep because of damn time difference).
Also, it might be more crowded if Willis made more publicty to it than just a single blogpost from 2010…
I’m sure she’ll relish the change of pace, going from one group that mocks her when she’s around to, er, one that waits until she’s gone. Hm.
The question is, which of the two groups consists of better friends?
I can’t tell her we were making fun of her the whole class. It’ll hurt her feelings. I need to be able to sleep.
Wow, I looked at the first line on the first page and automatically read it as “Sarah! You whore”. I was very worried about Joyce in that brief moment.
Now I’m picturing that and looking at Joyce’s facial expression. “Sarah, you whore! Yay!” (hearts)
In order of comics:
We talked about sports.
We talked about Noah.
We talked about how you haven’t given into temptation.
We talked about eating hamburgers.
We talked about enamel wear.
We talked about wanting a real relationship.
And somewhere in there, we talked about sucking a billion dicks and enjoying butts without shame.
Joyce’s expressions are all the characters I need.
Yes. That last one is the cutest detective expression ever.
I called it.
Just tell her you discussed her abnormal fixation on Hymal the Hymnal or whatever that is and the way she manages to bring religion into every conversation.
It’s the truth. Don’t have to mention you laughed at her while doing so.
Or Hell, just make something up. Joyce is not so screamin’ interested in what was said as in WHAT was said and did they connect.
Oh come on ! Why is Joyce’s word-balloon so blatantly missplaced ? I wanna check out Sarah’s nice bum !
You know, now that you mention it, that is sort of an odd pose she’s in.
Ok, Suspicious Joyce is now the greatest Joyce face.
I was thinking the same thing! I think the long sleeves help.
I mean, you probably could’ve just told her you were talking about her without going too deep into the “we were totes trash-talking you” bit.
“Ooh! What did you say about me?”
“He says he sometimes catches you sneaking glances at Ethan’s butt! How come we never talk about butts!?”
Hope it goes well for Sarah.
“Curiouser and curiouser,” thinks Joyce. “This is definitely quite the mystery!”
I hope Sarah doesn’t get away with being an awful person.
Yer kiddin’, right? Woman took a bat to someone’s face for her, but she giggles at her ridiculous beliefs and that makes her horrible? Frickin’ weirdos.
Feel the guilt sarah feel it. she tried so hard and you just made fun of her
Eh, she also stuck up for her a little.
Sooner or later something is going to happen to utterly annihilate that wonderful innocence she has. And I will watch with a bowl of popcorn handy and laugh.
