A Sven redemption story would be cool, but that'll require a relationship to at least start at some point and unless it involves one of the main cast it will likely develop off screen and be alluded to in conversations for a while before the reveal.

At the moment I'm hoping for some cheap laughs.

Sven showing up seems quite unlikely, I'm guessing it will be more Faye/Tai relationship advancing. Cheap laughs would be nice though, perhaps even a BonerCat cameo.

Sven is dragged along by Dora, complaining why he has to tag along. Tries to hit on the interns, obligatory friction with Faye, maybe a shout-out to Marten's mom, hilarity ensues.

I'm still hoping for Dale (though, judging by the poll, I may be the only one). He hasn't appeared since before the space arc (if I remember correctly) and his dynamic with Marigold is great. He could turn up by delivering pizza to the party and then join in on the festivities. Also, him and Marigold locked (figuratively) in a same house for prolonged period would make for some great comedy and potential character development for Marigold.

Tai cuddling Faye reminds me of Tai getting drunk, which reminds me of the possibility of alcohol at parties, which makes me think of adding alcohol to this one.

At the idea of Emily drunk, my ability to think shuts down.

Yeesh, my sympathies on the threats. I like the anime but I find it weird that people would like it enough to give serious threats.

Onto the main topic, I was rather amused by the "I don't want to touch his...let me get my wallet" 

This leads to a side theory, Marten is a kind of luck equalizer, he takes everyone elses bad luck and they get good luck. It's why Marten can't be happy because otherwise those around him suffer, and if that happens they all attack Marten. So Marten subconsciously keeps himself unlucky so as to preserve himself.

For comic #2301...


1. Art-wise, the background(s) are great for this strip.

2. Love "Tannelore's" wide-brimmed hat, the bow is even the same color as her swimsuit.  (And QC's OCD space girl shall bear this name for the duration of her coloration &/or story-arc)

3. Claire is very cute with her abject blushing & staring in panel #3.  I am also assuming this marks her as being heterosexual for general "attracted to" orientation.

4. Yay, Cosette (& Cosette's bikini :evil: ).  I have been missing her.  Likewise, Cosette's amused expression and "pimping" out her boyfriend's butt was a lot more entertaining than playing out the possessive-jealous reaction.

5. Warning - While you were typing, several new Anime series were released while quality western animation like Young Justice have been shelved.  You may wish to review your post, and contain your rage.

You might be thinking of Ellen. Cosette is college age though, so 20ish?

(Also, she looks vaguely early to mid 20s to me, and even that is a hard guess. Guessing age that early is just hard.)

You may be confusing her with Ellen. Damn, pipped to the post.

To be fair, last time we saw her* it was a different colour. And her attitude towards Steve around other women was also somewhat different...

Possibly because previously it was about Steve giving another woman attention. Another woman giving Steve attention is not necessarily the same thing.

Not wings. Pool noodle. I hope it doesn't cause any sort of flashback-related trauma for Marigold. Unless it makes for a funny comic strip adds to the drama, pathos and character development and provokes much projection-inspired character loathing thoughtful psychological exploration in the forum.

Ha! Guess she'll be paying Cosette a lot of money this weekend. I guess this lets us know that she does have an attraction in men even if she thinks her brother is an idiot. Also, what are the chances that something romantically happens for our hero Marten? I couldn't care less about Tai/Dora at this point but Steve did bring up a good point last week about being surrounded by all of these women and not dating one of them. Go Marten go!

Remembering how careful and slow Dora wants to take things, Sven tagging along is an amusing possibility. If Steve has that kind of effect on Claire, it would be interesting what effect Sven would have (yeah, they have different physiques, but you never know).
And on the subject of Steve, isn't he missing one or two scars from his year of living the life of a mercenary/spy?
