His look in panel 5 is like that of a
puppy who's just shredded your shoes and peed on them, and thinks he's doing you a favor.


And of course....Proposal 1. So there are others? He gonna be in for a world of hurt if she finds them.

Proposal 2 apparently involved her building him a 'machine tool' - he simply thought if he puts a worse proposal up first, she is less likely to disagree ...

2 things...1st guest comic. wow actually just for fun I hit the random link after reading it and it landed me in the middle of the mom's visit story arc. So I flipped back a few and read through that arc. nice to see Martins mom again.

2nd damaged Pintsize... a new chassis might not be a bad idea. One with thumbs perhaps?!

Blahahaha. Classic Pintsize. How we love thee. <3

I find it hilarious that Pintisze can draw Faye very well but he gets his face to look goofy, unless he did it on purpose haha. Yes, Faye's look! Fucking awesome. I'm interested to see how they repair him, another trip to Marigold?

Either way, this was a good end to a week before guest comics. I r pleased.

The links and twitter boxes et al appear on the home page but not the archives pages. If you navigate to the current comic with the 'next' link at the top instead of the 'home' link, you will see the current comic on an archive page. Thus, no side links.

Yes, I'm having the problem at the home page.  However, I'm writing it off as a browser error at my laptop, since links are fine in Firefox and in Explorer on my work computer (which, of course, I wouldn't know about since it is forbidden to go online unless I'm doing research for a specific project and which I wouldn't do anyway since that would just be wrong).

It's an error in the HTML.  There is a comment which is terminated by --!> instead of --> and Firefox and Chrome are handling it as a termination, but IE and Opera are not.  Opera is a bit in two minds about it, in that it (correctly) fails to render it, but when showing the source colours it as if that termination is valid.

Sometimes I think Pintsize has an inbuilt Suicide Program that occasionally activates without his being completely aware of it.


Either that or he's developing masochistic tendencies.

Formally, there are some versions of the HTML standard in which this would constitute a termination (any -- puts the parser in a state where any > will end the tag) but still be an invalid tag. There are other versions of the HTML standard in which this would not constitute a termination (-- and > can only be separated by blank space). There was confusion for quite some time over which a browser should do (and for a while, some browsers did <! anything > as a comment without the -- at all

This behavior varies between browsers, between relatively recent versions of some browsers, and I think in some cases it depends on whether the browser is in what is called "quirks mode" (don't ask).

Not my understanding.  In origin, a comment in HTML is one or more SGML comments (which start and end with two dashes) contained in a null tag (<!>), with possibly white space as well; the ! before Jeph's closing > violates this syntax.  The only way to get it right is to count the dashes in pairs of pairs (ignoring other characters, including single dashes, between alternate pairs, and accepting the > at the right point; many browsers even now do not do this exactly.  The W3C HTML4.01 definition demands that there be no space  between the opening <! and --, but allows space (only) between the closing -- and >; in XML, and hence XHTML, the close of the tag may no longer be divided by a space.  In real life, using <!-- and --> and being careful not to have any -- or > in between should avoid pitfalls.  This all has curious effects, like <!------------> is a valid comment, but <!-------------> is not (not a multiple of four dashes), so be careful when making dash separators in HTML!


Not to forget the comic, in earlier comics, Pintsize could just be pulled apart at the joints without damage ("contained-field magnetics"); but this time there seem to be wires at his joints - not that breaking them has stopped his "brain" (which has always continued to function when separated from his body).

Indeed, why would you think that?

The shape/size of her legs in the second panel.

I'm quite enjoying the contrast of outrageous fantasy and gritty realism in the Wil and Penelope storyline. I may hope Marten does better than Dora and all males realize Faye is a hot, hot mess but I'm pulling for Pizza Girl and the Pansy Poet.
I'm still holding out for Marten/Faye in the future. His relationship with Dora is incredibly boring and doesn't show a lot of chemistry which makes me sometimes forget they're going out.

Wasn't that what I said? I did mention that it's an invalid tag  - removing the SGML comment results in <!!>.  Regardless of it violating the syntax, it _does_ clearly terminate. Under the SGML rule interpretation there is no way to justify material after the > being ignored.

Whereas under the HTML 4 rule, it can be justified. That was my point - it terminates under the SGML rule (html before 4, but not always followed by browsers), but not the HTML 4 or XML rules.

I just noticed that Faye has actually pushed that button before, here: http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=71

Sure, the button thing was just a joke, but I thought it was kind of funny to see her having pushed it almost directly after seeing it suggested that it was an anthro-PC's arousal button.
