Good on Marten.  I like the way he found a way to cheer Faye up.  The mark of a true friend.
So if you cannot do that, you cannot be a good friend ?

No, just not a TRUE friend.

You mean back when he used to "secretly" lust for her, and she used to pummel him for the slightest misstep? Yeah, those were good times.  :roll:

you can look at it that way if you want to be a negative nancy.

You're right. I'm so wrong. Obsessive infatuation and violent alcoholism are two of the best things in life.

[...]they'd be a wonderful couple but I love Dora <3 she deserves Marten. But so does Faye. Marten needs a clone.

Too bad Martin isn't a Time Lord so that his previously severed hand can regrow into a half Time Lord/half human mortal version of himself to leave with Rose Tyler Faye.

Though, Pintsize is about halfway between a Dalek and K9...

Ahah, maybe Jeph will run out of ideas and it will happen :O

BUT ROSE FAYE WILL GO AND LIVE IN A PARALELL UNIVERSE ;__;
And she will only return once in a crappy cameo series-end and everyone will hate it.

Time for Raoullefere's believe-it-or-nots.

  • When I wrote the title "He's Hunky (But I'm Chunky)" I honestly didn't think of it referring to Faye's being a bit zaftig.
  • I really do think 'asshole cod' has a funny double entendre. Maybe even triple.
  • I didn't realize I double-posted last night (don't look for it--I deleted it a few minutes ago). My internets weren't working well last night.
  • I missed the giant splash of my avatar last night. I still can't believe I did this, but I'm guessing it didn't load for the above reasons. Or maybe I was in too great of a hurry to spew my post. I really liked the Bear Week commercial. Wish I could find it.
  • And I did not make a blog for that woman. I figure Jeph can have his characters take over the internets on his own.
  • I think the Borneo Snake photo is a fake. I didn't take it, either. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/malaysia/4701906/Photograph-shows-giant-snake-lurking-in-Borneo-river.html
  • I never protest too much.

Long and pointless, I know, but I felt it all just had to be said.

And, oh god, don't bring up Rose Tyler, ViridianStar. I detest that character with a passion. Mopey, over-emotive, Electra-complexed wretch.

@Raoullefere-Awww, I like Rose. Maybe its because I am an over-emotive 20-something with two inch long roots. Hmmmm..?:-o

Anyways, wow, 250,000 unique readers Jeph? Good job!!

Also, @whoever said "no one likes Sven anymore", I still like Sven. I don't think he has made the greatest decision ever but everyone makes mistakes, even comic characters. And sometimes there are people you just like for no good reason. I have plenty of friends with plenty of faults and I overlook them (the faults) because at the end of the day I like hanging out with those poeple.


Plus, he's cute. If I were in this comic I would totally hook up with him.  :wink:

For what, the two hours before he threw you your pants and called you a cab. Or better yet, told you where the bus stop was. He's a womanizing jerk. Some women prefer that, but I ain't gonna like him for it. He made a mistake he'd likely make a million more times in his life.
I'm just surprised Faye didn't do anything stabbity or burn...ity, yet. C'mon, get with the violence. Even her therapist would advise that!

Yeah. I guess. I don't think I would want to date him, but hook-up. I mean, why not? Some women don't mind a hook-up. Faye has trust issues, she was clearly incapable of not developing feelings. I never said I wanted to marry the guy. And he is likeable at the very least. People were discussing this in another thread-there are plenty of people who are likeable or charming but not good(Sven) and people who are good but not necessarily likeable(Faye).

Also Faye's violence wasn't healthy for her so I'm happy she didn't flip her shit over this but walked away and practiced normal copeing. Although since it's a comic I would have laughed anyway if she got the VespAvenger out of retirement.

Oops, you're right. And you were clear I was just a sloppy skimmer. My bad.

I don't think Sven is quite that bad. He seems to be more the "I'll phone you" and never does, fake address type of guy. Which may or may not be worse, since the approach Wyr describes is at least direct,

It's also a really funny line.

Well, at least Faye can turn a cry-fest into a snark-fest.  It just might help her get over the whole Sven episode.  I just hope that we can see some good coming out of this.  Right after seeing Jeph put them all through the wringer.   :wink:

Sven got pwn't! Though his little bit about how he "never said I wouldn't fuck anyone else" sounds like he's trying to convince himself, or like he's making an excuse that he's well-aware is crap. Gina's the first other woman he's banged for months (or so we can assume) and it's obvious he's been showing SOME restraint up until this point.

I really really really (times infinity) hope that sven does not think that he's off the hook because he was "honest"
he needs to hear he is a piece of shit, for pete's sake. maybe if he thought about his actions Dora wouldn't have to say it. There was previous debate about "Friends: people who give you a shoulder to cry on or people who whip your ass into shape when you need it." I think there are cases for both sides, and right now Sven needs the ass whipping.
I'm glad that Dora is defending Faye in such a way, though I'm not sure if Faye will be happy about the protection. She does not seem like the type who likes to be protected.
also, i think the "i never said I'd fuck anyone else" line is fair. Although, if sven felt bad about fucking Ms. Riversmith whilst he was doing it then he obviously realizes that this is NOT a legitimate excuse.

I hope Dora knocks some sense into him.

I just figure if Sven knew he didn't want to abide by 'da rulez' then he should have told her so.  It's his own damn fault.
I do not, however, deny liking Sven.  I've known enough guys like him to know most of them are actually good people. Who like sex too much.  Oh well.  There are worse things to be addicted to.  Like murder.  :-D

Both of them were talking about the real issues! This doesn't always happen with Dora.

Sven must be feeling guilty, because he's being defensive instead of going on the offense. He didn't say "She wouldn't commit, she wouldn't even goddam go out with me, she treated me like her fucking VIBRATOR, and she thinks she's got something to say about my sex life beyond 'did you use protection?'"

How different would people's reaction to the strip be in the roles were reversed, Dora cheated on Marten and Sven's first reaction was a left hook that knocked her to the floor?  :cry:

What rules?
http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1307
I know some people have mentioned it, but maybe a link will help it sink in better.
Sven: this is not a monogamous relationship
Faye: but if you sleep with someone else its over
Sven: ok

Seems like they understood each other just fine.  Doesn't Sven's not an asshole, nor that Faye isn't justified in being angry and heartbroken.

Granted, i was still really hopin' for a remorse-addled Sven with FeralStubble talking to the Tequila Monster about his woes

ah good point.  didn't she reply "i'll still leave your ass if you do it with someone else reguardless"?
Not that exactly, but they never came to a real agreement about this i guess.  
I understand why faye's upset in any case.

edit: i also just saw you commented further.  i get it i get it.  i'm with you on the fact that i was hoping he would show that smarmy isn't his only face, too.  he obviously feels guilty and that satisfies me a lil bit.

I was totally hoping for a Marten-Faye make out session, but I know it would fuck everything up.

I love this arc, btw, it's soooo good. The art gets better and better and the storyline does, too.

I still like Sven. I like Dora and Marten and Faye, too. And Hannelore...ok, so I like everyone.

Sven is irredeemable shit-for-brains.

That kind of judgment is why we can't have nice things.  Sven is precisely as flawed as anyone else in the strip (and a good bit less so than Faye I'd say) and his actions have not at all been out of line.  He's dealing with people much more fragile than himself, so he could use a bit more tact and perhaps a couple sacrifices to his sex life wouldn't do him a whole lot of harm (even if not for his own sake), but he hasn't done anything that wouldn't be totally fine if the people in his life were actually emotionally healthy.

On the other hand, I think if Dora would have just given him The Stare and said, "You fucked up," he would have agreed.

But then we wouldn't have gotten Jeph's cool art from this strip.

Good on Marten.  I like the way he found a way to cheer Faye up.  The mark of a true friend.
So if you cannot do that, you cannot be a good friend ?
No, just not a TRUE friend.
Oh, this even only keeps getting better.

So your definition of "true" friends includes the ability to sweet-talk ?

Someone who is bad with words cannot be a true friend ?



I was totally hoping for a Marten-Faye make out session, but I know it would fuck everything up.
Eww. Honestly, you're sick.

Dora made the case against Sven succinctly. Even though he warned her ahead of time, he still had to have known that Faye would be hurt. If you do something that you know is going to hurt someone, you better have a good reason.

Sven-haters could also seize on the fact that he said "I'm sorry she's hurt" instead of "I'm sorry I hurt her".

I am parsing nuances in the heat-of-the-moment statements of a fictional character and analyzing his ethics from contractual and utilitarian points of view. I should get a life.

Put me on the "Sven's made a mistake but isn't the devil" side. He should have picked up that Faye was emotionally fragile and really made it clear that he wasn't interested in being monogamous unless it was a proper relationship.

Someone mentioned Sven having gone months without sleeping with another girl. I wouldn't put too much weight in the dora-haircut-timejump in this case. Until we hear how long Sven and Faye have been "together" I'd probably assume it was a couple of weeks.

I am totally on Sven's side of this.  Faye tried to have her cake and eat it too and it got her burned.  Sven was totally honest about everything form the get go.  He was honest about the possibility of him sleeping around and he was honest about it once it happened.  Sven. Did. Nothing. Wrong.

Sven did nothing wrong? Trust me, I don't think Sven should be grouped in as an EVIL BAD PERSON like some people are doing, but I still think he did something wrong - he deeply hurt someone that obviously means something to him.
