Hey looks guys, another guest comic trying ever so desperately to get in on a little of that shock factor bank!

Like every fucking other one!

Yeah, this shit got played out long ago. Words words words words blah blah blah blah. Can these guest artists think up something original to do? Wait, that would require some effort.

I take it you've never actually read S*P then.

Did everyone miss OHNOROBOT in panel 2?

I think you mean red robot from Diesel Sweeties? 

Ha!  I did until this made me go back and look. It's a beautiful thing.

Why do you keep coming back here

I mean honestly, all it does is make you upset

And you come here and bitch and moan and make terrible statements

And you aren't banned for some reason

I just don't get it

I refer you to Pintsize's last line in the guest strip for your answer :-P

Mortally wounded pizza delivery girl stuffed in a garbage can just didn't make my day. It's been fun to speculate on what happens to QC's "disappeared" characters, but, cripes!  Even a pile of bones in a mound of allosaurus poo would be better than that.

First post, longtime lurker, blah blah, been reading QC forever, blah blah blah.
Anyway...

All I have to say is that this better be canon.
You beat me to it!

I have hated practically every guest strip, but this guest comic is what I wish would actually happen.  I laughed at this comic while I have only chuckled at QC for the past months.
All the relationship drama has taken a lot of the fun out of everything, so something lighthearted like this is extremely refreshing (even if it is just a guest strip).
I agree with the bolded part, but not for the same reasons. I feel inclined to say that this single comic has (or rather, would have, if it was canon) progressed the story between Dora and Marten more than anything else Jeph has done since the breakup. I mean, sure:
a) Dora was supposed to go to therapy, but we haven't seen even as much as a hint she has actually been there. In fact, I just realized we haven't even seen here since 1848, which equals weeks in universe time.
b) Marten is supposedly somewhat over Dora (judging from the Padma-in-the-bar-arc), but what I feel is really missing is the two talking out things. I mean, all they have done since the break-up is repressing stuff and avoiding each other (cf. It'd be too weird.) I really wish for some progress about that.

Try a bit later than that.

Dude. Since 1842, we've had Marten and Hanners finding TSB, Steve and Marten going out to the Horrible Revelation for drinks, and the whole "Faye sleeps over at Angus" thing - and that's before Faye even meets Padma.

The number one issue with an ensemble cast in any work of serial fiction - books, comics, TV, et cetera - is that sometimes it takes a while for the storyline to come around to certain cast members.

Yes! That's how I feel too.  Everyone may not like how the stuff in this comic happened, but at least something finally did happen!

The past few weeks, and especially this week, have felt like filler to me.  I like Hanners just as much as anyone, but a whole week of her adventure with beef jerky was hard to read when I was/am thinking "What about Dora???" the whole time.

Perhaps Dora will go the way of Steve in the early days. Where he basically disappeared like nothing, was mentioned once, and then returned full blown. Or worse yet, Sarah! Of course I am kidding. About Sarah, not Steve.

Wait...


Why is Marten asking Dora to bring his stuff?
They were living together when they broke up.

Dora's place was Marten's place
All of Marten's stuff was already at Marten's place.
Sven came over to Marten's place with a box to get Dora's stuff.

And how did Choo-choo-bear get to Northampton? Doesn't Davin live in Texas or something?

I'm so confused! :psyduck: :psyduck: :psyduck: :psyduck: :psyduck:

Water lines. Choochoobear travels by water lines. He may have additional powers as Garlic Bread Kitty, but that hasn't been explored. He's also been known to filch small items from places he's visited by water line. Or Sven took something by mistake and it was at his apartment, I dunno. Pizza Girl was investigating when she disappeared.

Qc has a pretty big cast, with more being added all the time. The real reason Jeph is on Twitter is to gain experience telling a story with 140 characters.

@CEOIII:
Well, Davan showed up at Slingshot's Wedding of the Century (and afterward did a bit of sledgehammer psychoanalysis on Candy, to which she responded as a domme who's been out-dommed) ... there's the whole cat-reproduction thing which indirectly led to Hazel's present predicament ... Ms. Corsetto has done a bit of poking around inside the skulls of Faye and Marigold ... Hazel and Jamie were at Northampton's beer-sledding party in the park along with most of the rest of the Webcomics pantheon ... and it's not the first time Mr. Milholland has been rude to Faye.

Hmmm. Candy and Clarice apprentice to Veronica as heirs apparent; Jameson and Dora are thrown together when Hannermom buys out CoD and Joe Shmoe, Davan tries out his psychoanalytical skills on Faye and is, um, attacked by owls ...

Truly, it would be the comics singularity.


During which Pintsize will BECOME PORN.

Just realized something: Pizza Girl's sidekick should really be called BreadStick Kitty. Not all bread served with pizza is garlic bread, it's usually breadsticks. Cheese breadsticks, generally.

First of all, I do not "KNOW" the archives.

Secondly, this is most likely CCB's first appearance in the strip, even through past guest strips. In fact, I believe this is only RKM's second guest strip with QC. The last time was Rippy the Razor and Yelling Bird ravaging through San Diego and TJ during ComiCon.

Lastly, I might not be able to keep up for much longer, kiddies. Someone got their job layoff notice last night. :(

First post, longtime lurker, blah blah, been reading QC forever, blah blah blah.
Anyway...

All I have to say is that this better be canon.
You beat me to it!

I have hated practically every guest strip, but this guest comic is what I wish would actually happen.  I laughed at this comic while I have only chuckled at QC for the past months.
All the relationship drama has taken a lot of the fun out of everything, so something lighthearted like this is extremely refreshing (even if it is just a guest strip).
I agree with the bolded part, but not for the same reasons. I feel inclined to say that this single comic has (or rather, would have, if it was canon) progressed the story between Dora and Marten more than anything else Jeph has done since the breakup. I mean, sure:
a) Dora was supposed to go to therapy, but we haven't seen even as much as a hint she has actually been there. In fact, I just realized we haven't even seen here since 1848, which equals weeks in universe time.
b) Marten is supposedly somewhat over Dora (judging from the Padma-in-the-bar-arc), but what I feel is really missing is the two talking out things. I mean, all they have done since the break-up is repressing stuff and avoiding each other (cf. It'd be too weird.) I really wish for some progress about that.

That's because this is a character-driven comic, not a plot-driven one. Like real people, Marten and Dora aren't going to go out of their way to confront each other and deal with each other post-break-up a mere few weeks after it. Neither one is that foolish. You're talking about two people who (a) had a lengthy relationship, (b) lived together for a bit of it, and (c) were friends before that and share most of their own friends. We're not talking about two people who started dating shortly after meeting each other; we're talking about something far more complicated and now fragile.

Having them deal with each other so soon after crash-and-burning makes absolutely no sense character-wise. It would be script-logic: "They do it because the script says so." And that's bad writing; it ignores the characters Jeph's spent the last several years developing. Dora is probably going to therapy; she's going to be in no shape to deal with Marten right away (heck, I had a friend who spent nearly a year in therapy before meeting with me to deal with something that happened between us--and that was just as roommates).

And things have been progressing, just not completely in the Dora-Marten relationship. Most of the strips have followed Marten's point-of-view, not surprising considering he's the main character. I really liked seeing Angus and Faye together, since we hadn't seen that relationship for a while, for instance. And the return to humor--and QC always has been a humor comic with drama, not a soap operatic one--was welcome after a run of out-and-out melodrama.

If and when QC gets to the point that Dora and Marten meet again, that probably will be another major arc. What happened is a major event that affects all of the characters, and it's consequences are not something that should be rushed into. Otherwise, you wind up with something as meaningful as today's guest strip.

I really hope this isn't canon.  Because once Marten and Dora realize that Pintsize sent the e-mails, Faye and them will turn PintSize into a pile of metal shavings.

I'm not happy about Pizza Girl's death either, but superheroes come back from the dead all the time.

If any of the guest strips were canon, Faye would have caused her father's suicide by appearing before him via time travel, the entire male cast of QC would be gender switched robots created by Tai, Dora and (male) Marten would be advanced robots, and there is a distinct possibility that Marten and Steve would be waking up together.

Seriously, guest strips are just a bit of fun.

Lastly, I might not be able to keep up for much longer, kiddies. Someone got their job layoff notice last night. :(

JW, I'm so sorry.  This truly sucks. 

Aren't you in Wisconsin?  Are you one of the public service union members who just got pink-slipped by the governor?  If so, stay strong, brother...

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm stickin' to the union!

Secondly, this is most likely CCB's first appearance in the strip, even through past guest strips. In fact, I believe this is only RKM's second guest strip with QC. The last time was Rippy the Razor and Yelling Bird ravaging through San Diego and TJ during ComiCon.

Third.  Fat girls don't deserve paternal love.

The number one issue with an ensemble cast in any work of serial fiction - books, comics, TV, et cetera - is that sometimes it takes a while for the storyline to come around to certain cast members.
Qc has a pretty big cast, with more being added all the time. The real reason Jeph is on Twitter is to gain experience telling a story with 140 characters.

Heh.  Nice.

(paddin' the postcount aw yeah)

Does Garlic Bread Kitty remind anyone of that one cat that was in GWS?  (Did somebody bring this up already?)

You mean Choo-Choo-Bear? Davan MacIntire's cat from Something*Positive (the artist of which did today's guest strip)? The father of Hazel's cat Sprinkles' kittens?

Yeah, there is a passing similarity.

Choochoobear has defeated Pizzagirl.  Thus in death she learns the lesson of the fate of all filthy by-product of excessive cattle farming.  Die happily!  Thank you, dear catty, there's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.

Sorry to hear about your plight, jwhouk. Hopefully you'll find new work and continue to hang out here, but until then, I suggest you take some time to do the things you never had.

oooh-ooo.

Good Luck jwhouk, it's one of the most upsetting things to have to deal with, hopefully you will be able to find the silver lining soon.

I demand moar Garlic Bread Kitty appearances.

Wasn't he in like some strips? 1400-ish range?

Lastly, I might not be able to keep up for much longer, kiddies. Someone got their job layoff notice last night. :(

And now I feel bad for having gotten a job offer yesterday.

(Nods, sadly) I'm one of the 290 who got essentially axed.  I'm starting to hate Northern Wisconsin.

I'm gonna land on my feet, though. Even though my boss is an idiot, they have to help me find a new job.

I hope I'm not crossing the line into the frowned-upon political zone, but....

Places like Wisconsin have long been a beacon of hope for many of us union supporters who live in "right-to-work" states.  I'm also sorry, JW.  This is scary stuff. When all the shit started hitting the fan up there with the legislators going into hiding, my first thought was "oh, christ, not Wisconsin! - how could this happen there of all places?"

Aw man, I knew when I posted it that there must be something really glaringly obvious about my post.  I don't actually read S*P, so that's my (feeble) excuse.

I hope I haven't taken up too much of your time.
