A bit of a pickle.
Way over his head.
Complete and perfect control, in fact things are going exactly according to his master plan.

Quite the contrary actually. Mortified characters tend to ad a lot of drama in a story. Jeph ain't going to pass that opportunity. This could lead Angus and Faye into romantic progress!

Now I shall resume the first 3 issues of the week with a single word for each of them!

1556 : ewwww....
1557 : O . O
1558 : "facepalm"

Neither O . O nor "facepalm" are words.  Well, facepalm is a word, but you have it as an action...

Just pickin' nits, don't mind me...

And no, Angus will not die a horrible death.  But he'll wish he had from sheer mortification.  (get it?  "mort"- ification?  Oh.  Sorry)

Oh but I DO mind the nitpicking my dear Carl-E. That post's been fixed now  :-D

While I can understand Angus's reaction in this latest comic, I must say he has chosen poorly...

Weeeeeellllll Faye has always been described, by herself and others, as being heavier-set than the rest of the cast. (Not really overweight, but you know, not skinny.)  It's just that now the art actually shows her to be that way. In many of the  earlier strips, she looked pretty much the same size as Dora just with more boobs and ass (and that's partially why people were always all "wtf is she talking about when she makes comments about her weight?").

That said, even Dora is kinda looking more... full-bodied all over lately.
Faye looks definitely overweight now.

And Dora described herself as skinny and quite flatchested - she is neither right now. Correct description of would be ideal figured.

Stop talking! For God's sake man!    - 18 (32.7%)

OK, aside from opening yourself up to all kinds of flames, please remember that ideal is in the eye of the beholder.  Dora, if somehow made real, would still be incredibly skinny, nearly "model thin", although with boobs.

Personally, I think all you're seeing is an increased realism in the drawings, they're less stylized, and have more "dimension" to them, making everyone look bigger.  I know you've said before that you don't like the new style, but some of us do!  :roll:

Here's how the next comic goes;  Angus still doesn't believe her, Faye gets mad and walks away, Angus stands there dumbfounded and is about to utter profanity when suddenly a rocket propelled Roomba flies through the shop and thwacks him in the head, knocking him out cold.

Who let that brick in here?

FFFF-!

Eh, I was sorta half-maybe-a-third-right.

Still say Angus gets beaned before next week...

I think thats what Angus fears, but I think Faye feels bad that their relationship is based on sass-talkery that when she is serious he cant tell.  If anything I think she will approach him and talk to him about it...or she feels angus is a runner which enforcers her fears of abandonment.

I feel bad for Angus...

This has nothing to do with the Faye at all since it's just my personal opinion:
I don't really like when people do a lot of sass-talkery but they don't want to talk about a specific subject.
A few months ago I was reading a thread about gore stuff and there was this user laughing a lot with every picture but suddenly gets all serious about a picture of a baby. And the user is all like: "Don't put those pictures, they are offensive because my baby died after he was born".

And yes, that's very very sad... But don't go all offended if you were sass-talking about dead people all the friggin time and just get offended when it comes to something that has to do with your life.

This is the reason to why I don't think Faye get's sad with Suicide-jokes, some user here posted a comic about her making jokes about her situation... She's just sad because of the same reasons LeeC posted.

I feel for Angus. Blundering that way... Holy Chao! I've been where he is, only not so deeply. I can see why he ran away in embarrassment.

I think he'll apologize later, once he's processed it all and retrieved his composure.

I feel bad for both of them.  Angus for realizing he just made a huge gaffe whihc might lead to his demise. And Faye because she finally opens up to a guy who isn't Maren and he first doesn't take her seriously and next runs for the hills.  Hardly encouraging.  As someone who also finds it difficult to open up to people, I sympathize with her.

Um... no she doesn't. Not to me, anyway. She looks totally average.

Dora is no longer as skinny as she used to be, I agree, (and same goes for Tai, Hanners, and Marten) but still quite thin.

How is this overweight, seriously???

(Btw, my own figure has always been closer to Dora's, so it's not like I'm saying Faye not overweight out of any private vanity considerations.)

o.o That's not her stomach sticking out in the 1st panel, that's mostly the curve of her HIP.  Her tummy is relatively flat, as in the 3rdpanel (note that the shading does not imply any convex curve).

Unless you wanna say that Cosette, as in the 1st panel:

And Tai:

And Hannelore:

Heh, exactly.

I'm kinda hoping we'll next see Angus at the bar awkwardly interacting with Wil.  Frankly, any awkwardness he encounters at this point can't top his interaction with Faye.

He's busy kicking himself, and any attempt at comfort, reassurance, etc. is highly unwelcome right now. If Marigold was less of wierdo-shut-in er more socially experienced, she might understand he needs to hear that later, not now. Right or wrong, at present Angus is furious at himself, and anyone trying to get between him and his anger is simply a target.

The funny thing is, if she really watches Neon Genesis Evangelion, Marigold's seen this sort of thing go on over and over and over again—people so down on themselves that they simply won't accept any assurance they're not as terrible as they think they are.

Yeah, she's been acting that way ever since he said she was cute (but meant no interest, just academically stated it).  Ever since then, it seems like everything she says to him screams "i really like you a whole really lot" in that geeky-shy-girl way.  Which can be great if you like the girl too.  If you don't though - well, it can get messy when she finally realizes the truth, especially if she's been building this up in her head, which is entirely possible.

I don't understand why some users call Angus for an idiot... His behaviour is normal. Just like some user said here: He's just angry at himself and anyone trying to get between his anger and himself will turn into a target. He's not an asshole, he's acting as many people use to act.

And if someone do something really stupid and feel really angry because of how stupid they think they are.. I just leave them alone for some time and then talk to them.

Hahaha, that was brilliant. Had to laugh at that one. Hey, is it just me or does angry Marigold look a lot like angry Faye there?

Only if the only thing you compare is their respective bust-lines. Marigold and Faye have distinctly different jaw-lines, noses, cheeks, facial proportions and (though this is more transient) hair. The level of similarity between "angry Faye" and "angry marigold" is the same as between either of them and "angry Dora".

I think Angus is just a bit of an idiot, which I think is something Faye is far more willing to forgive than intentional acts of assholeness.

Jeph your top ten list sucks.  Everything is either droning electronic stuff or lo-fi indie that sees lack of effort or technical skill as a virtue.  And almost all of them are rehashes of stuff the same people have done better in the last few years.  It's like the top ten list an indie version of Rolling Stone would put out.

I wonder if it's too late for Angus to learn the Canadian National Anthem?   


Or Scotland The Brave?

Faye looks definitely overweight now.

And Dora described herself as skinny and quite flatchested - she is neither right now. Correct description of would be ideal figured.


Faye overweight?
I would say she and marigold are normal size as opposed to other characters who range from skinny to skeletal (hanners).
It seems that you come from a faminestruck region ... :D

Okay I'd like to share a fever-dream I had last night concerning this current arc.

Angus continues to pester Faye until they agree to have a Battle Royale, with the winner deciding where their relationship goes from there. If Faye wins, she gets to do whatever she pleases with his (dead) body, and if Angus wins, he will take her out on a (proper) date. The battle royale in this case is just a regular tag team battle to the death, with Marten teaming with Angus and Dora teaming with Faye.  At the start of the epic battle, all four combatants reveal their mutant powers. Faye transforms into Godzilla, Angus into King Ghidorah, Marten into MechaGodzilla, and Dora into MechaKing Ghidorah.  At one point it becomes apparent that Marten and Dora, who didn't want to be in the battle anyway, will have to fight each other. They spend like 10 minutes shuffling around each other and looking at their feet until finally they both self-destruct from the sheer amount of awkwardness.

Anyway, Angus eventually wins, and Faye keeps her word and lets him go out on a date with her. The next day, she tells any surviving humans that her date with Angus was, "Eh, it was okay."

FIN

I...I think I just pioneered Questionable Content/Godzilla slash-fiction. What the hell is wrong with me?

OK, aside from opening yourself up to all kinds of flames, please remember that ideal is in the eye of the beholder.  Dora, if somehow made real, would still be incredibly skinny, nearly "model thin", although with boobs.

Personally, I think all you're seeing is an increased realism in the drawings, they're less stylized, and have more "dimension" to them, making everyone look bigger.  I know you've said before that you don't like the new style, but some of us do!  :roll:

Pretty much this.

Also, I'm not sure if it the new hair or just subtle changes in Jeph's art, but Marigold almost looks hot in Panel 3 today.

Wow way to tell somebody that their taste in music (a completely subjective thing by nature) sucks.  I personally like the list, so I would say that your taste sucks.
