"Dammit Jeph!"
« on: 14 Feb 2019, 20:38 »

Sometimes Jeph makes me have tumult in the feels. These rumblings cause spontaneous eminations of "Dammit, Jeph!" with a huge grin.1

It he does that to you, post the strip# that made you have the feels in the special place here with or without comment. I'm especially interested in making a 'feels list' when folks dive the archive.2

The comic that inspired this thread was:
  • #3940: "You're having thoughts again." (OMG THOUGHTS IMA DIE)
Which strip made you damn Jeph cry, "Dammit, Jeph!" to eternal torment by your blasphem-- in delight?

-----
[1]Sometimes there are also gestures and eyerolls, but the happy is always in the middle of the feel.
[2]It's been over a year. I'm due. Maybe you are too.

For me the most feels-inducing moment in QC is probably comics 2157-2160 (Station asking Hannelore to stay in space).

For me it was a bit later ... when they actually got together.

Also, a little dammit jeph moment for me was brun's face in the last panel of 3939.

Maybe it shouldn't count because it was a guest strip, but this one;

https://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2987

It said to me "You are accepted and loved and safe here and anyone who says otherwise can fuck right off."

At the risk of overstating things a little, I felt the Earth shake a little bit reading 'Well, this is me.'

The comic that shocked me the most was certainly the #3643. I found it really disturbing the first time. Melon seems to live some awake nightmare. There was no grinning involved...

You know, of all of the Dora-Marten breakup comics, the one that got to me was this one. Poor Hanners.

I know it's quite off-topic, but I used the "That's what friends are for" line today. Although it was more of a pleasant context, especially than the original.

I'm still waiting for the day when I'll read the comic and gonna just throw my phone in the corner muttering "goddammit jeph"

I was sipping a coffee when #1812 loaded....

Not a big grin, but for me it'll always be The Talk. 


I just went through it again to be sure of the numbers, and wound up in a puddle. 




Dammit, Jeph.

I can't believe Bubbles has been around long enough for the art to look that different. I am baffled at how quickly time moves in real life relative to this comic.

Yeah, when you think about it, time really does go by faster than you think.

52 weeks x 5 strips/week = 260 strips/year

3965 strips / 260 strips/year = 15.25 YEARS.

52 weeks x 5 strips/day = 260 strips/year

3965 strips / 260 strips/year = 15.25 YEARS.

According to the About page, QC started August 1st, 2003, with three strips a week for what I calculated as roughly the first year (it's been running 23 weeks longer than it should be with five times a week and not missing a single day). I've been reading since somewhere in 2011 (I think, it's what I figured out from what I thought to be the first strips I remember reading before actually starting at 1).

Tomorrow, Friday March 22nd, it's going to be fifteen years, seven months and three weeks since the comic started. Or five thousand seven hundred and twelve days. Yes, I did type that out, because yeah, it DOES feel like a lot, looking at the numbers. Dammit Jeph!

5 strips/day

If only! Though I shudder to think what that pace would do to Jeph.
