New strip!

NO, Marten, sewers are for Ninja Turtles, not people.

Yay has way too much class to ever need a secret lair in the sewers!  Mountain top, coral reef, active caldera; maybe.

Isn’t Yay’s secret base just an apartment in an upscale building, full of greyhounds?

Are you saying Ninja Turtles aren't people?

Incorrect; it is in fact several.

Excuse you; ninja turtles are people too.

Was Marten always prone to catastrophising?
Granted, jumping to the conclusion that every 'serious talk' from a SO is going to be a breakup seems to be common.

And again, wouldn't they have already had the conversation about Claire getting offered a job outside of commuting distance?

We all know the sewers are full of mutants.  Or at least those of us still willing to claim Futurama fandom.

Mutant versions of Vespavenger and Corpse Witch, scheming revenge against the world above.

  • You is friend or food?

You thought it was Marten who was going to have the freakout, but it was me, Faye!

Tired jojo references aside, I think Marten's calm acceptance is a prelude to Faye freaking out because her best friend and half the rent payers are leaving.

(and also probably unresolved baggage about Faye's own mental state)

If Marten and Claire leave, I do wonder if Pintsize might decide to stay. He has said in the past that his “job” with Marten is done, and he has his own sources of income, so he can afford to take on Marten’s part of the lease. But Faye’s reaction will likely be a big deal.

1) Marten and Claire do actually leave the (active) QC comic.

2) Spin-off comic, set in Nova Scotia!

In a shocking turn of events, Marten is a chill bro.

(more genuinely shocking is that Marten has been seriously contemplating his own future)

God I forgot to consider the amazing potential outcome of Marten and Claire cube into the sunset and Faye has a gigantic self-involved meltdown for my poll, how didn’t I think of this, this sounds classic as hell! Just Like Old Times!

Yes; there may be a wonderful collaborative solution somewhere between all of the characters!!  they all have many potential ways of helping, individually and collectively!!

Aye.  And Jeph is unlikely to put Faye through a scary relapse.

Yep, QC hasn't really been that type of comic for a long time. Plus, this would be a good time to show that Faye has also evolved, which would be good.

If I'm honest, as much as I have a fondness for Marten as a character, his storylines have mostly ended, and I have been much less engaged with Claire's storylines. Perhaps having them move would be the sensible thing to do. They could still be mentioned and appear occasionally when relevant to the storylines, but Jeph would not have to consider letting them appear somewhat regularly to keep fans appeased.

Besides Faye, it'd also be interesting to see his mom's reaction.

Yeah, Veronica moved all the way up here to a) semi-retire and b) be closer to her only son… then he moves even further north to chase after another girl?

… at least she likes this one?

I thought it was b) to chase a boy. Am I misremembering?

It can be all of the above.  And yes, Jim the Baker Dude was a big part of why she came, but she'd been thinking about it before then for the retirement and proximity to Marten.
