Shit's hitting the fan.

way to win points with his sister.

Does it make me a bad person that I saw this and thought "This is gonna be good"... I wonder which one of them this will turn out badly for, my bet is on andy, but it could go the other way.

Quadrant, July 20th, 2011, 12:47 am

Way to cheer the guy up...

Fuck yeah. (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 1:02 am

Oh, it's SO on.

yingmin (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 1:17 am

I'm totally with Andy on this one. Patrick got himself in this mess by pushing all of his friends away. Now that they've all come out to show that they still support him, because they genuinely love him, he just pushes them away some more? Fuck you.

Laura (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 2:49 am

You tell 'em Andy!!

Sen. Clay Davis (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 6:53 am

Sheeeit, I'm with Andy, here. Patrick, stop bein a foo, FOO! Ya got hurt from not listenin' - they told yo azz - now make amends and move on.

darkamnios, July 20th, 2011, 6:57 am

Im with Andy tho.

Ren (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 7:31 am

I agree with Andy too

Patrick's sister went through a similar problem with her @#$! of a boyfriend, and she didn't listen.

Andy is pissed at Patrick because the same thing happened (only that it wasn't the hiting, it was just an indirect violation of trust).

So yeah, I see grounds for Andy to be angry him. On the other hand....

Dude just figured out his first boyfriend wanted his money. That's rough...

patrick went from one of my favorite characters to one of my least favorite. he is the dumbest smart person ever. ya he fucked up but if ur friends are kool enough to overlook your stupidity and help you when you get fucked over you take it because frankly peter could of hung up the phone on you backstabbing ass. Patrick needs to go to the doctor and a persciption for a new set of balls and stop being such a baby.

phllybeef, July 20th, 2011, 7:44 am

Poor guy just needs a new dick in his bum.


kmab10 (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 7:45 am

And yes...i do know that i forgot some words and mispelled some things but danmit bitchs get me angry lol

Jeffko (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 7:45 am

Classic situation: someone fucks up after being warned they'd fuck up, and as a sort of penance they decide to refuse the help of those very same people who tried to prevent the whole thing from happening. Patrick feels that accepting help now would be him appearing weak and needy, while Andy sees that attitude as the same prima donna, woe-is-me bullcrap Patrick pulled before, only in a different context.

While I understand Patrick's attitude, I'm with Andy on this one. Friends are trying to be friends, as they've always tried, so let them.

yayness (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 8:00 am

OK, so seeing as everyone else is with Andy, I'm gonna go stand in the Patrick corner...

If my house had just been broken into and my bf had buggered off with my money, I don't think I'd be quite up for the kind of hard drinks and soft drugs of Bishop Street, with the people who I felt really bad aboutignoring for so long.

Dak (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 9:04 am

Considering my family, this would probably be the exact thing that would be expected to be yelled if anyone had been acting like Patrick's been.

I'll just sit over here and patiently wait for Patrick to pull his head out of his ass and him and Andy to kiss and make up.

HighDudgeonAZ, July 20th, 2011, 9:43 am

I tried to keep this short, but ...
It's quite something when you find yourself identifying so strongly with certain characters that you feel compelled to speak up for or against them. Mr. Twist, this is one of the finest examples of a graphic novel I've ever seen.

I think a word in support of Patrick is long overdue.

When you hit bottom like this, and you have to face the people you've hurt the most, you aren't filled with the big happy and love. You're filled with self-loathing and recrimination and the last thing you want is to be around people who have the gall to love and support you in spite of the hurt you've caused. It just makes everything ... worse.

That said, his friends need to rally around him anyway, and Andy needs to shut his mouth and right damn fast, because the last thing someone who's been emotionally traumatized needs is loud voices and anger. A bit more patience and tolerance is called for, particularly considering the rather acrimonious relationship Patrick has with that complete failure of a parent that calls himself his father.

You don't do that to your kids. You just don't. Doesn't mean you go on paying the bills, either, but you don't grind your son down year after year with lectures and disapproving snidery while at the same encouraging him to stay entirely dependent on you and NOT expect your son to have some problems relating to people and handling basic life problems.

Patrick needs friends and a role model to help him adjust to life on his own. What he doesn't need is more self-righteous douchebaggery.

Whew. OK. I think I'm done now. Back to work.

o_o well shit
JSYK, Andy, this will not earn you brownie points with Melanie D:

xkrazydog, July 20th, 2011, 10:26 am

Andy Ilu. <3

Catnipfairy, July 20th, 2011, 5:49 pm

Although i get why andy is angry, he needs to lighten up. Patrick is feeling shitty enough already

Ryan (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 6:35 pm

Andy's hair is getting long. He needs a trim.

PyroTeam, July 20th, 2011, 7:42 pm

Ooooh now this?

Best. Comic. EVER.

VenNumberTen, July 20th, 2011, 9:32 pm

Hmm, this is more than a little bit off topic, but if Patrick said that his hair was not naturally black, why are his eyebrows still black? Did he not bother to dye them again when he went red or are his eyebrows that natural color (some people with light or brown hair can have dark eyebrows)?

Guest (Guest), July 20th, 2011, 10:45 pm

I miss Kara...

Face (Guest), July 21st, 2011, 1:08 am

That's love though, isn't it. I'm still hoping that Andy's blow-up is indicative of how much Patrick means to him and that these two will pull through as brothers-in-arms.

Jeffko (Guest), July 21st, 2011, 8:02 am

Exactly. These two have known each other for years, so they don't stand on ceremony. True friends can shake each other up like that and talk straight, something acquaintances might not feel comfortable doing. This needed to happen, folks. This is Andy CARING. Sure, it might look bad in front of Pat's sister, but this is a rather unique situation.

As for those people who feel that Patrick is right in wanting to be left alone, I pose this query: why did he call his friends at Bishop Street? Why stir up their caring instincts, then push them away? The way it's going down, it looks like he just wanted to showcase his bad luck all emo-style, then retreat back to the darkness for some proper brooding. That's sort of a dick move. If you don't want to be with your friends right now, don't call them.
