London-Smyth, April 13th, 2011, 2:16 am

wow. Great strip! I really love the action in the 5th panel where he's literally throwing Devon out! WTG Dad!

Uncle Nutsy (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:16 am


so, that's now three shitkicking's he's received. and something tells me he's about receive his fourth and final from Slugger, probably putting him in the hospital.

Jackie (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:16 am

Totally worth staying up 4 hours later for. :D

The_Hankerchief, April 13th, 2011, 2:19 am

Yes! I'm so glad the dad is not a douchebag after all!

Also, Tezzle gets points for the hilarious comment.

Gibson Twist, April 13th, 2011, 2:20 am

Four hours? But it was only two hours late!

Sorry for the tardiness, and I love you all who camp out to see the new pages. It really warms the shriveled old potato that where my heart once was.

Javier (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:29 am

Dad cares!!!!!
after reading this page, I had to go back to the beginning of the chapter just so that I could see the transition in the father from anticipatory to confused and finishing in rage in this page. SO GOOD!!!!!!
That and Devon's face of confusion as he is being thrown out of the house. Excellently done Mr. Twist!!

Madock345, April 13th, 2011, 2:36 am

a truly awsome page, but now I cant wait to see what the dad will say when he comes back inside...
Has this comic ever existed in a state other than suspense?

Jimbotheclown (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:38 am

Such a fun page
Fantastic work, Mr. Twist. The rage on this page was a beautiful sight to see before nodding off. Great to see that the old man has his priorities straight, though I don't know that I look forward to seeing his reaction to the news about Patrick. (Also, is it just me, or did it seem like the mustache had a life of its own here?)

yayness (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:51 am

heh, I'm on UK time, so I get the pages pretty much as soon as I wake up :D is good.

Why is it so entertaining watching Devon get tossed around the place? Seriously, his face as he hits the floor makes me all happy inside :p

And I'm so glad dad decided to prioritise this one before going in and getting pissed at Patrick.

Leesai (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 3:01 am

New Reader
I'm a new reader, but I must say that I absolutely love your artwork. The emotions you manage to convey with facial expressions are awesome! That being said... I really, really hope that Dad's non-douchbaggery will extend into the next few panels when he inevitably confronts what Devon said before he was thrown out of the house. <wonders if there's any possibility of a bonus, extra, super special update>

Adoring fan (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 3:06 am

I love you mister Twist.

Colin (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 3:46 am

Can you change your times to suit me I need a new page every fifteen seconds

Merrsharr, April 13th, 2011, 4:22 am

A minute ago I was upset cuz I got my exams back... after I read this page I feel much better

derf (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 4:34 am

Nice! Panel 2 is especially full of win.

darkamnios, April 13th, 2011, 5:00 am

fuck yeah.

Jenny (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 5:05 am

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. :) This has made my day. Feel bad for seeing the dad as a bad person! Let's just hope this makes him and Patrick a little bit closer...

NicoleW (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 5:24 am

Aw, yeah. I haven't smoked in over ten years but right now, I need a damn cigarette. That was goood.

And holy god, Devon's deluded. Not that that's a surprise, but wow -- "I expect you to leave me alone with your beloved daughter who just told you I beat the shit out of her?"

phoenixgem, April 13th, 2011, 5:35 am

this just made my day XD

Onyxlight, April 13th, 2011, 5:49 am

It is always worth the wait Mr. Twist

And I just know there's a Hogan's heroes joke in here somewhere...anywho... wonderful job as always ^_^

blitz (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 5:59 am

I had my doubts, but it looks like the old man has a heart after all.

Lady Eclectic (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 6:03 am

Okay, I'm satisfied as far as Melanie goes. I just hope the rage doesn't turn on Patrick now. XD
However you choose to go here though will be good because the writer is. :)

Master Morality (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 6:25 am

Now we just need to see how he deals with his son.

Ben (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 6:49 am

I don' think we've seen the last of Devon guys. I know this kind of assholes. I'm sure he'll come back against Patrick and that it's going to be very ugly.

H0lyhandgrenade, April 13th, 2011, 6:51 am

Aaaaand I feel happy.

Though I do reckon there may be a AND YOU, GET OUT ASWELL!! to follow.

Falconer, April 13th, 2011, 7:07 am


Love it.

Spar (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 7:14 am

I'm with HolyHandGrenade on this one. We can all agree that Devon deserved an ass-kicking, and that the Dad's testicles *seem* to have dropped at just the right moment, but I'm afraid he'll bugger those good feelings up by turning on Patrick now.

Amonyoshu, April 13th, 2011, 7:18 am

I'm with H0lyhandgrenade on this one. Still, this strip is a bright spot in an otherwise depressing chapter, and I'll take it!

kmab10 (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 7:23 am

its nice to see that the dad isn't as big an asshole as i thought he was but it still doesn't look to good for patrick. Patrick was one of my favorites in the beginning of the series but he has slowly grown into a nosey douche. it'll be interesting to see 2 hard headed assholes go at it in the next few pages. i think the hitting isn't over either....

XenoVega, April 13th, 2011, 7:28 am

So what are Devon's good character traits?

Arista (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 7:32 am

You have no idea how happy this page made me. Daddy's gained respect points! Let's hope he doesn't lose them in the next few pages.

Virginia (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 7:38 am


xkrazydog, April 13th, 2011, 8:04 am

Run devon, Run.
You douche.

NicoleW (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:07 am

Yeah, I'm worried that the Friday update will be Pa turning on Patrick and screaming "YOU! GET OUT TOO!" But until then, I'm just going to savor today's strip.

Calia (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:12 am

There have been very few mornings on which I have woken up to something more pleasing than this. Byeeeeeee, Doucheface Devon!

Tsuki (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:30 am

YAY DADDY!!! Even if he does turn on Patrick all pissy, he dealt with Devon first. Kudos in my book. That-a-boy.

tezzle, April 13th, 2011, 8:38 am

"I will END you using ONLY my incredible mustache! You'll BEG for my fists!"

Eskimio (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:42 am

I approve.

Lee A. (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:54 am

Today's strip.
Beware a father's wrath.

Snowglare (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 8:57 am

I approve....
Untill i realized how his anger will be taken out on patrick.

Oh, and in the 5th and 8th panel... Their dad's moustache... If that was intentional, that is the most epic moustache known to man, growing all of that from the center of the lips.

Mac (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 9:07 am

I actually cheered "FUCK YEAH!" outloud.

Olera144 (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 9:41 am

family resemblance
I guess we can see where Patrick gets his temper problems.

Leonardhbrown (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:02 am

In this case, the temper was well directed. Let me tell you, someone treats my daughter like that willleave my house feet first and I'll leave with my hands behind my back.

rainbowcrayon, April 13th, 2011, 10:04 am

What? YEAH DAD!!!!!! Maybe he's not such a total douche after all!

But, maybe he just thinks Devon was lying about Patrick being gay. I guess only time will tell...

Wired (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:10 am

Thankies for the close ups of the epic moustache.

Los (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:13 am

*GASP!* He's not a total idiot! Well then, my respect for him just slightly notched up. Well done, padre Hogan.

comicgirl, April 13th, 2011, 10:25 am

Thank you!!!
Way to go, Dad!!!

You may be overbearing but you do still love your children. Good boy!!

I imagine it'll be a sad change when they deal with Devon's outing of Patrick... I don't imagine he'd forget but still.

Cas (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:25 am

I am very satisfied with Papa Bear's reaction here! Though I'm truly hoping his anger does not now turn on Patrick, and honestly...I'm not sure if I think it will. His anger towards Devon did not involve a single mention of him 'outing' his son....though, he would not really beat Devon down over that.

In short, I'm conflicted D;

This could go one of three ways. His father could pull the 'I knew already and I'm ok with it' route. He could kick Patrick out, and make him have to be financially stable--which is horrible, no denying it, but as some have said..it could possibly do Patrick some good to have to work on his own, and it could get rid of his mooch boyfriend.

The last option, personally, I think it the worst--his dad could ignore it. Completely and utterly ignore it, and deny it. Not accept it, and refuse to discuss or talk about it. In essence, shove Patrick back into the closet.

ncd (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:30 am


Jac (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:33 am


i hope he deals with his kids well after this.

Skylan2021 (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 10:42 am

How refreshing, that was pretty awesome. I hope however that the rage manages to subside in the next 5 seconds so he can have a mature and rational discussion with Patrick over this recent news....doubtful? lol. Who knows maybe he will choose ignorance. Be all "I cant believe he would come in here and say such things after being such an ass." Patrick may get off clean, or he might take the opportunity to come out. Can't wait to see the next page.

Jeffko (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 11:31 am

Welp, dad sure went up a notch in pretty much all of our books, but methinks he's still got some rage fuel left just for Patrick. The key thing about this guy is that he hates being lied to above all else. Sure, Patrick's gayness shouldn't be cause for dad's wrath, but had his son simply come out of the closet and said "Screw you, pops, I love the cock and I don't care what you think about it" a long time ago, then I believe he would have much more respect for him. As it stands, dad was lied to about his little girl (althought Melanie could have come out and said "the bastard beat me senseless" instead of "daddy please... he hurt me", during that phone call after the fact - a lot of grief happening right now could've been avoided), and about his son's use of his money. He is NOT a happy camper.

As others have said, I actually hope that he kicks Patrick to the curb and cuts him off. Patrick needs to drop the joy-boy lifestyle and learn some responsibility already. Hopefully, that'll entail dropping Alex, too.

xkrazydog, April 13th, 2011, 11:33 am

Well... I dunno. The last christmas they had, his dad gave him alot of flack for being a leech and not having a job. So to find he has a boyfriend, does drugs and is now double the leech on his dad's money is a punch to his mustache'd face 8(.

wrestlingll, April 13th, 2011, 12:21 pm

Great Page. Love the tension building and storytelling.

TCGC (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 12:52 pm

dat mustache

mitchellbravo, April 13th, 2011, 12:53 pm

What a great page, made me gasp with joy. Makes it tempting to just stop reading now and quit while the going's good, but I know that that would be incredibly foolish of me. Whooo, and the adrenaline rush gradually slows!

Maritza (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 12:54 pm

*throws horns, headbangs*

miguelito3dp, April 13th, 2011, 1:11 pm


Ryan (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 1:12 pm

Next page, Dad completely disowns Patrick.

lsmith2509, April 13th, 2011, 1:44 pm

I'm so glad he wasn't a complete asshat! GO DADDY!!!

Alphabet Soup (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 2:48 pm

Though I doubt that the talk with Patrick after this will be pleasant...

Good fucking riddance. Glad that asshole is out.

G (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 3:35 pm

I'm glad Mr. Hogan didn't let anything sidetrack him from the real issue at hand: throwing that nozzle Devon out. -I also loved that he physically tossed Devon out. Too bad Devon didn't "trip" and hit his face on the front step on his way out. :)

Although now that Devon's gone, there's still the issue of Patrick being outed. Unfortunately, this night is far from over for the Hogans.

Sarge (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 4:06 pm

The throw heard 'round the world
This was probably the most satisfying thing to read today. Good to know that Melanie's dad wasn't aware of what went on at school instead of just not caring. Dad SMASH!

At the same time, I wonder how their dad will react when he finds out Devon wasn't just blowing smoke about Patrick. Something tells me that the drama is not over yet. Can't wait for Friday!

Pumpkincat (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 4:24 pm

Awesome to see Devon get a taste of what he so richly deserves. I've been reading the comments and honestly, while I really hope dad doesn't turn around and slam into Patrick, I don't think he should just be 'okay' with it either.

Not so much from the perspective of 'ew gay', but Patrick is slowly screwing up his life and this business with his current douche boyfriend shows signs that the 'slowly' part is picking up speed.

I'd like to see dad more or less tell him 'you lied to me and that's not okay, I don't care who you date but you can't move people in on my dime - if you want to date him, he's gonna need to pay rent and by he way, you need to get a part-time job and stop slacking off'.

My fear is that Patrick is so deep into believing his own brain that he'll commit virtual suicide by telling dad off at that point. He seems very keen on shooting himself in the foot.

Desire (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 4:59 pm

YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!! I got out of work early to read this!!

reidavidson, April 13th, 2011, 5:16 pm


Also, panel 5 is very awesome just for the movement.

SpiralPen, April 13th, 2011, 5:52 pm

I read it once and swelled with joy.
Then I read the comments and felt it dampen a bit as the reality of what's likely about to happen crept back.
Then I read it again.
It felt just as good.

ThePucj1 (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 7:22 pm

He'll be back
Men like that, will come back. Like a bad rash, that you can't itch. But ya know what? Dad may still react badly to the announcement that Patrick is gay.

Still, nice to see Douche get his just rewards AGAIN.

Guest, April 13th, 2011, 8:09 pm

He just went Hulk on his ass.

Mr. Hulk Hogan.

sIck, April 13th, 2011, 8:14 pm

Dad's still going to kick Patrick's ass for it. But he has the sense to not let Devon see. He doesn't deserve that satisfaction

peanutbutterpancakes, April 13th, 2011, 8:58 pm

Wow. He came through to be a good dad after all. He just didn't understand before... he was trying to help.

themthatgot (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 9:41 pm


Indigo (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 9:53 pm

My hope
...is that daddy is so upset over Melanie, and over the fact that Devon would stoop to accuse her of lying, that he will also write off the "your son is a pothead queer" thing as just one more of Devon's underhanded tactics.

Don't know if it'll work out like that since Daddy dear was not all that happy with Patrick to begin with -- but on the other hand, he may have been impressed by seeing Patrick stand up for his sister and stand up to his father on behalf of his sister.

Neko with a Katana, April 13th, 2011, 10:14 pm

And then Devon was hit by a bus.
And no one mourned his passing

fluffy (Guest), April 13th, 2011, 11:18 pm

wow dad! way to go!
by the way patrick; you're kicked out of the family. ^^

jerrie, April 13th, 2011, 11:38 pm

dad should have put some buckshot in his ass.

Ren (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 12:03 am

Bloody brilliant!

...but... what happens now between Patrick and his father then?....

Toccio (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 5:13 am

You really are a brialliant comic writer!

Your work is always amazing!

I've read every page and never commented but now I had to write.

Many compliments!

Damiano (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 7:16 am

Well, I'm at loss for words. Everyone (just look at the previous pages comments) were convinced the dad was aware and in favor of Devon... You always surprise us! Keep it going!

amiko_16, April 14th, 2011, 1:50 pm

ufufu >:3 This page makes me happy as hell, but I'm also paranoid about the next page-- whether he'll turn on Patrick or not. :<

susanowo (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 2:16 pm


Hornet (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 3:44 pm

Hell yeah!!! and pops finally gets his head out of his ass.

Lindsay (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 5:53 pm

I discovered this comic last week while reading one of my other comics. It was an ad of some sort that looked intriguing. Since then, I've been reading the entire story from page one until now. I have to say, you sucked me in and now I can't escape.

But I also need to say that now I'm pissed that I've run out of archives to read and I have to wait for updates.


Tats_n_Tails (Guest), April 14th, 2011, 10:19 pm

Maybe its just me but I would have added a "You shitbag" or something after "You hear me", just because it gives it a satisfying and definitive end feeling. LOL.
Had us on our toes again Gibson. Go you!

Stubby G (Guest), April 18th, 2011, 3:40 pm

Wow, I know I'm posting late, but I was out of town. That was exactly what I could have hoped for and more than I was expecting. I guess I didn't give Mr. Hogan enough credit.

heh (Guest), May 24th, 2011, 10:52 pm

I see wear Patrick gets his anger from.
