Dora and Tai are just going to have to find somewhere else to do their hanky-panky!

What other places are still available at CoD? The bathroom (but customers can go there), the dung... basement, the back alley or the roof.

There's always the air ducts - if they don't mind raccoons and pigeons.

What's the deal with gratuitously calling Penelope "Pen2"?  :?

Just an external reference.  Pen2 or Pen-pen is a character - Misato's intelligent pet penguin - in the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Yep, I'm familiar with NGE, got the dvds, own the t-shirt, visited the exhibition in Tokyo... blah blah blah.

Just didn't see what Penelope had to do with it (until the relevant comic was linked earlier).

New comic at roughly 10:50 GMT or 11:50 CET. Probably tells us when Jeph gets up when on vacation! :wink:

Onto the comic: Emily is... Emily, who likes things. She likes things a lot and she just naturally has the carefree air of a spree killer around her, as Faye once pointed out. Meanwhile, Hannelore is having the strange experience of having to be the voice of sanity and rationalism when she's normally the child-like enthusiastic one.

This idea may yet explode in Dora's face!

P.S.:
Anyone else notice that Emily's smile for the nice customer lady was spookily similar to Hannelore's old 'I don't really know how to smile' slasher grin from way back?

I knew this day would come, but I didn´t expect it to come so soon. But here it is. Already.
So what to do with it? Well, best way is to face the facts and get over it.

What day? The first day featuring Hannelore with the new lip design. :wink:

I revisited the comic maybe ten times today and looked at it again and again, trying to get a feel for the new look.
But sorry, I don´t get it.
I think Hanners looked much better with her old mouthform. She looks very different, like another person. Amazing what such a little difference in the character design can do.
Don´t get me wrong, it doesn´t look bad. It´s just that she looked so incredibly cute without the lips. And that cuteness is kinda gone. She looks more serious, more grown up. Unlike herself.

Of cause I know that Hannelore was drawn with lips in the past. But I like the version of the last years better than the older strips too.

This is just my humble oppinion and I´m in no position to critisize Jeph here. It´s his comic, his protagonists and of cause his design. And I´m sure I´ll get used to it soon. It´s Hannelores character that counts and the character won´t be affected by the way she is drawn (hopefully).
But for now I´m a little bit sad that Jeph took his design in this direction.

I think that Jeph is really enjoying playing up Emily's 'She can only pretend to be one of us' side. She has a definite auteur-like air to her sometimes; she's able to say the words and dance the steps but you get the impression that she doesn't really understand them on a certain level.

Part of it is, of course, that she's just so genuinely sweet and nice that she can't really pull off unpleasant behaviour in a believable way. That won't stop her developing her own cult following at CoD, primarily because she far outstrips even Faye's ability to make up bizarre nicknames (remember the dogs?)

The comic is up! And...Hanners looks hella creepy, or is that just me?

I'm rolling with it myself. Jeph is still trying to get used to giving all female characters full lips and he is struggling with them in certain shapes and angles.

Hannelore's hair is bothering me more than the lips. It looks like she has a bunch of blonde leaves stuck to her head. I can't imagine how you would make your hair look like that, let alone why you would want to... :psyduck:

Oh, wait, now I know who she's trying to look like! http://blog.retroplanet.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/sprout.jpg

But she'll have to dye her hair green to get the full effect.

It's funny, I'm thinking if a girl like Emily said that to me, my first response wouldn't be offense. I'd try to haggle her down to a different kind of stupid name, like Fudoodles, and see where we ended up.

And I think that'd be the highlight of my day, at that.

I totally grok Emily. I was like that when young. Aspergic, very.
The parts of the brain to do with "common sense" are used for other things.

My bet is that with more socialisation, she'll pick up the basics though.

Or maybe I'm just not equally weird, but even more so. That hypothesis has some evidence for it too.

Since no one has said it yet in this thread... "Carpe Opus" is perfectly good Latin.  Opus is third declension neuter, so its accusative form is identical to its nominative form.

I'm kinda wondering why its Hanners who is training Emily? Shouldn't that be the responsibility of Dora or Penelope?

Best guess is that, when Penny checked the rotas, it just happened that Hanners and Emily were the ones with the most common shifts.

Penny says that she and Hanners will split training duty.  Best guess is that Hanners happened to be in charge this shift.  Why Dora's not responsible for any of it, well... because Dora's *delegating* now.

Since no one has said it yet in this thread... "Carpe Opus" is perfectly good Latin.  Opus is third declension neuter, so its accusative form is identical to its nominative form.
Dang it, ya beat me to it.

Also on first read I totally read that as "Mr. Bunny". I didn't even question it because Hanners. But obviously Mr. Burny makes more sense.

This tweet from Jeph should make some people (including me) happy:

"I'm going back to drawing hanners without lips because it just looks weird to me now"

I like the "Bioware trash" shirt that lady is wearing, with the plaid. Is it a subtle reference to his new home? A random style choice? An reference to an obscure  band from Halifax that makes subtle social commentary on the issue of "brain drain" from the maritimes to the central and western provinces? I want to know!
