This makes me irrationally happy.

I'm feeling that too - but there is nothing irrational about it.  In a world (our world) that is seeming to fall ever more deeply into division and horror, Jeph is offering us a vision of honest, inclusive love between two people - or at least, the potential for that kind of love.  I've been coming to this strip for a dose of hopefulness for many weeks now, never more so than today :-)

...

Yessssssssssss (End of Hanners impression)

Seriously though- I'm not only happy with this positive happening, but with what seems to be Marten's considerable recent character development. No sign of his usual wishy-washiness here!

For those of you who can't see the comic yet: http://imgur.com/J6XI0NE

Apparently the next comic in line has also been uploaded, but I figure that one can wait.

Or just click here: http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2807

I tried that, it didn't work at first. Rewriting it to 2808 let me see the comic from the future though. >_>

I actually got 2808 first (didn't realize I'd missed 2807). Made me think the kiss took place off-frame. Works either way, and the end result -- thankfully -- is the same.

Okay, so, I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but this is literally the only reason I've come to the forums.

I'll preface by saying I'm pleased with the recent developments.

I'll conclude by asking if we now where Claire is in her transition process. As far as I'm aware we just know that she's been taking the hormones. This confuses me, because though it's cool that Marten is cool with her status, a major aspect of Marten's relationships have been sexual. So, either Claire has had her operation and I missed it or Marten is not as straight as I thought, or he's just cool with being cuddle buddies in the meantime.

I don't know. Thoughts?

Greetings, new person! We don't generally speculate on Claire's ladybits for the same reason we don't speculate on other characters' *bits... it's not generally considered polite (and can come off as downright demeaning). Head over to the Trans* thread and acquaint yourself with it. There's some very useful information in there if you're genuinely interested in getting up to speed.

I'm looking intently at Claire's nose. Does it grow larger by the last panel?

I actually think it's intentional, given that the homepage goes to 2807, yet next actually works and goes to 2808. And, I don't think he's ever done that before.

It is the title of a song from Thom Yorke's recent album "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" that came out like a week ago.

He once posted a six panel comic (this one: http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=564) because he "Didn't want to drag this one out over the weekend."

And that was before he changed the comic layout to incorporate more than four panels.

Woah. To be completely honest, I didn't expect that, especially not so quickly. But it happened! Marten confessed his feelings! They kissed! And Claire didn't freak out! Holy crap!!!



Additionally, does anybody know if the next one is Wednesday's comic or if it's a double comic Tuesday?

Wow.  How satisfying.  I actually felt happy just to be viewing two comic strips on my computer. 

And it was my strategy to read the comments section until the new posts started in with the OMGs, the DAWWWs, and of course, the SQUEEs.

Finally,

Thank you, Jeph!

All relationships have at least one thing those involved will never agree on.  Claire's sense of humour is most likely that thing in their relationship.
