I was very excited to see Veronica again, but she's managed to make me dislike her in the space of only six strips.

Pretty hard to do when there's only one other character that I actively dislike in the entire strip.

I just hope Marten works himself up to ripping into her. If he wanted to get embarrassed, he could just go make a public scene at CoD.

I actually quite like VV the past few strips, seems like a mom.  My mom has done pretty much the same thing in the restaurant and with baby pictures.

We found one from several years back recently, and most people's reaction was, "Gee, you look really weird with all that hair!"

Sounds familiar. My loss of hair was visible before I hit 20. So I had little choice but try and become a mathematician. After all, our profession is the one were a receding hairline adds to your street credibility.

My guess is it's a musical reference of some kind.  'cause, you know, Jeph never puts those into the titles of his comics.  :wink:

Either that or it refers to the blinding light that precedes the mushroom cloud in a nuclear explosion, and Marten's reaction to being humiliated in absentia will be spectacular.

"The White Flash" is a song by Modeselektor featuring Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Damn good, too.  :-)

There's couple ways it could go in terms of what it has to do with this comic but I'm not sure. Anyway here's the song; give it a listen and decide for yourself - it is very pleasing.

I believe that would make it a Thursday.
Or the long dark tea-time of the soul.

Baby pictures. Do parents take them because they want to be reminded of our generally rather unattractive appearance as infants? Or is it some kind of sick long-term investment for future lulz? Or is it a subtle pressure on us to breed and produce grandkids, because then they'll carry round pictures of them instead.

Ask cute as this all is, I'm going to buzzkill a little bit with some plot speculation.

Faye comes over and does some squeeing with the rest of the folks, then Marten wakes up and everyone goes for food. Dora walks past the restaurant by accident, looks inside to see everyone laughing and joking away, then bursts in with a "ZOMG You're stealing all my friends!", panics and then runs off into the wilderness.

Oh, and then the restaurant collapses and everyone dies.

and then the restaurant collapses and everyone dies.

She's the sort of mom who would knit a Worry Hat.

And the baby pictures would fit, too. I mean, she's a Dominatrix; what's the best way of humiliating a person?

EDIT: As an addendum - I'd almost wonder if, at this point, Jeph might be considering writing Dora out of the comic.

Cannot read Jeph's mind, so I dare not predict how big a role Dora will have in the immediate QCfuture. For the moment I'm sticking with the theory that for keeping Christmas peace Jeph decided to go with lighthearted humor at Marten's expense and get him started on a climb out of his funk.

In these parts the Christmas officially started 2 hours ago at noon. So from amidst a foot of snow and nibby -24 degrees centigrade (about -10 degrees Fahrenheit) I wish all the QCfans all the best at this holiday season!

I'm off to start looking for the missing bits of a Santa costume. My nephews depend on their uncle to show up later tonight. We are closer to the pole, so the local kids will come face to face with Santa in the evening of 24th.

I doubt he hates Faye or Hannelore and he's given them a fairly rough ride. It's a mark of a good writer to accept when a character has come to an end, regardless of their feelings for them.

I'll point out that I am in no way whatsoever speculating either way as to whether this is going to happen or suggesting that Dora has been exhausted as a character. Merely providing a viewpoint on the creative process.

It's revenge I tell you. Revenge for all the shit (literal and figurative) that kids put their parents through. Notice how the WUH* is employed-shown to SOs and friends of the child in question, targets that will most likely razz the child about the pictures at the time and some time afterwards. And this is always done in spite of any squirming or protests of the child in question-the parent will NEVER respond to any requests, entreaties or threats against deploying the weapon.

There is only one way for the child in question to prevent deployment of the weapons-find and DESTROY all copies. I know. Don't ask how.

I don't think Dora has been "exhausted as a character", nor would she be removed from the comic.....yet (Jeph could make the following discussion moot)

She owns Coffee of Doom, one of the main focal points of the comic, one of only two main places where all the characters can possibly meet up, the other being of course, Marten's apartment. She employs two of the main cast as well as two of the secondary characters. Her best friend is also her ex-boyfriend's best friend, not to mention hilarity ensuing when Dora and Marten see each other again. Not only that, but right now we can see a huge potential development in Dora's character, either going to therapy and coming out on the other side a better person, or sliding deeper and deeper into a spiral of self-destruction. Both are extremely possible and both offer the chance for Jeph to really show off his writing skills, especially the self-destruction route (This might be the sadist in me, but I love seeing characters being dragged down past rock bottom and finally standing on the edge with a choice.)

Like her or not, Dora Bianchi is here to stay.

More than half of you think that Marten has been telling no lies about one of our fav characters - no surprises really.

What has Marten been saying about Hanners?

Nothing but the truth  60 (57.7%)
Sorry, were not allowed to talk about that anymore, it's creepy  24 (23.1%)
Nothing, she's just messing with him.  16 (15.4%)
Something he'd tell no one else  2 (1.9%)
Other (please specify, but not if it will get you banned)  2 (1.9%)

Funny, I thought Hanners was his favorite character... Of course, Hannelore hadn't really been much more than an incidental character by 592.

Heh, could you have imagined what Dora would have done if SHE would have found Hanners and Marten in that, uh, compromising position 60 strips earlier?

It's gonna be interesting to see what happens when Faye gets there and sees the baby pics.

I wonder just how cute Marten was as a baby, and how embarrassing those pics are.   :-D


I can see several things happening as far as the Dora thing goes

1)  Marten gets roped into her therapy sessions and, quite possibly, their relationship rekindles on a new level
2)  As above, but no relationship renewal.  Perhaps a better friendship?  One can hope.
3)  Dora faces her issues, and somewhere along the line gets tangled up with her Therapist (Depending on whether it's Dr. Corrine or not)
4)  Jeph pulls a 'Left Field' and somehow Tai and Dora hook up. (Not likely, but there is always the "Infinite Improbability Drive Factor')


Permutations are endless, but that's the four top 'Top Of My Head' ones ATM

Even that (Hannelore > Faye = Penelope > Dora) was posted 2 years ago... given how rarely Penelope appears these days, I wonder if she's slipped.

Does that not make Dora the #4 favorite?

Personally, I would find having a fetish model for a mom creepy, but not nearly as creepy as having her show my friends my baby pics.

Well, its kinda half the reason why Marten never tells anyone who his mother is, often people freak out or have an embarressing fangirl moment, like Dora.

After scrolling through the walls of text in this thread, I have only one question:

How did you say 'HAUGHLAGHL' in your head when you were reading it? I can't even begin to imagine how hilarious it would actually sound.

As a clue, it is almost a quote from this, which Jeph re-tweeted shortly before drawing the comic.

Heh, could you have imagined what Dora would have done if SHE would have found Hanners and Marten in that, uh, compromising position 60 strips earlier?

Probably depends on when it happened.  After all, in #1314 she was all over Marten getting a look at Hanners.  This was after she knew them both pretty well, of course.  If it'd been earlier on, it's difficult to say.  I suspect part of it is Hanners itself, she just doesn't set off Dora's possessive instincts.

She doesn't seem to be the kind of mom who would bring baby pictures with her when she visits her kid.

I'd expect whips, handcuffs, and chains, but not baby pictures.

Why the hell would she have those things when she visits her friggin kid? I'm sure she has the magical ability to separate her job from being a mother.

Pintsize begs to differ.....if he can speak thru that gimp mask of course.

Also, I smell conflict when Hanners calls up Faye and Faye let's slip that Veronica is in town to Dora sometime in the next week or so worth of strips.

You know, I don't think Marten is going to be embarrassed by his mom showing his friends his baby pictures.

I think he's more likely that he'll react more like "Ooh! Did you show them the one with <really embarrassing description>?"

I think Marten is OK with his child hood.

It's gonna be interesting to see what happens when Faye gets there and sees the baby pics.

I wonder just how cute Marten was as a baby, and how embarrassing those pics are.   :-D


I can see several things happening as far as the Dora thing goes

1)  Marten gets roped into her therapy sessions and, quite possibly, their relationship rekindles on a new level
2)  As above, but no relationship renewal.  Perhaps a better friendship?  One can hope.
3)  Dora faces her issues, and somewhere along the line gets tangled up with her Therapist (Depending on whether it's Dr. Corrine or not)
4)  Jeph pulls a 'Left Field' and somehow Tai and Dora hook up. (Not likely, but there is always the "Infinite Improbability Drive Factor')


Permutations are endless, but that's the four top 'Top Of My Head' ones ATM

Highly, highly doubtful, as Faye has repeatedly stated that Dr. Corrine refuses to take on anyone else in her social circle. If she was willing to, Faye wouldn't have had to get a referral from Dr. Corrine for another therapist, but would have just given Dora her phone number.

I'm banking on #2.

You just KNOW it's gonna happen.

PANEL 1
FAYE (On cell phone): Cool, Hanners, I'll be over right after I get off work!
DORA (entering from right): What was that about?

PANEL 2
FAYE (clicking off her phone): Hanners is looking at Marten's baby pictures with Tai over at the apartment.
DORA (looking down at the cash register): Oh, really? I don't remember Marten having any of those laying around when I was over there.
FAYE: That's because Marten's mom brought them with her from California...

PANEL 3A
FAYE (looks wide-eyed at DORA as she realizes what she just said)
DORA (looks straight ahead, wide-eyed with a frozen gaze of terror)

PANEL 3B
FAYE (looks at DORA with a note of concern): Dora? C'mon, she's not gonna...
DORA (still looking straight ahead, wide-eyed with a frozen gaze of terror)

PANEL 4A
FAYE (looks at DORA in fear): Dora?
DORA (looking right into FAYE's eyes, still with a gaze of terror): ...

PANEL 4B
DORA (grabbing FAYE by the shoulders): SHE'S GONNA KILL ME!
FAYE (shaking like PENELOPE in 1531): N-n-no sh-sh-she w-w-won't p-p-please s-stop sh-sh-shaking m-me
