Seriously, if you're not in love with Michelle by now, check yourself into rehab because you are high on crack.

i think she just wants to see Patrick suffer as much as half the people who read this comic do.

also - is that neil patrick harris in the first panel?

Gibson Twist, September 16th, 2011, 12:41 am

@reverendjack: There's a way to read that comment that's just downright insulting.

And no. Very much no. I don't join in on the NPH love like the kids do.

reverendjack, September 16th, 2011, 1:16 am

hm - then that's not how it's meant to be read (i meant no harm - that's not how i roll).

and i didn't think you would do a NPH cameo. he was in 'smurfs'... *ugh*

I'm not sure I agree with Michelle on this, but I still gotta love the way she puts it.

Peter's annoyance is probably the best part of the page, though. Sorry Michelle.

Fight Club
Michelle is the female Tyler Durden

Wanting to hurt the other person and/or yourself and/or the rest of the world is a vital stage in breakup.

I pictured it too. heh heh heh :p

i cant tell the difference between peter and patrick now :(

Jo (Guest), September 16th, 2011, 5:40 am

Ah, Michelle. You're not supposed to tell people when you do that!

Barb (Guest), September 16th, 2011, 6:27 am

I agree with jodie... for a moment I thought that was Peter talking in the first panel, and was most confused. Hopefully once Patrick is through all his drama, he might go back to his natural hair colour, or black again. I've met very few people (or characters) e who I think bleach blond/e looks good on. Patrick is not one of them.

Every page I read of this, I admire the perspectives you use during the characters' conversations. They're so amazingly fitting for the mood and they set up a great atmosphere. And you've really got the busy club feel going rather well.

Michelle is kinda ridiculously hilarious. I understand what she's going for, but on the other hand, that's a whole lot of WTF? XD

Holy sweet mother of GOD, Mr. Twist! That voting incentive is hilarious! Thanks for starting my Friday off with a guffaw. You're aces in my book.

akagenki, September 16th, 2011, 8:27 am

I love you Michelle! :) You are my favourite.

MonkeyDomi, September 16th, 2011, 10:49 am

For the people not being able to tell the difference between Peter and Patrick: Peter has blue eyes, too long hair that's all over his forehead, and very thick eyebrows. Patrick has green eyes, short hair and slimmer eyebrows. Also, the nose lines (you know, those tiny strokes on their noses) are different - horizontal, think Peter - vertical, think Patrick.
Okay, guess that's enough.

And about the page... I pictured it too and I liked it.

Yep (Guest), September 16th, 2011, 11:53 am

I don't want to be insulting, but I think some of you need to adjust the color on your monitors or something. Even without all the helpful things MonkeyDomi pointed out, their hair colors are completely different. Peter's hair is almost gray and Patrick's is BRIGHT blonde. I'm really not understanding the confusion here :/

I'm even more in love with Michelle now than I was before! She had soooo many good lines this page. <3 She and I think very similar, when you're going down, gotta hit the very bottom before you try to get up.

Jade (Guest), September 16th, 2011, 12:36 pm

I've always liked Michelle, from the beginning. It's her style, and her attitude, and much more. While I like all the characters because of the fantastic character evolution in this comic, she's a top favorite.

shalahoyden, September 16th, 2011, 1:22 pm

I've always loved Michelle. She is everything I ever wanted to be. Except the stripper part, but if I was her I think I could take that too :)

VenNumberTen, September 16th, 2011, 3:29 pm

That one close-up panel of Michelle is amazing.

The_Hankerchief, September 17th, 2011, 12:05 am

I don't know, I can still tell Peter and Patrick apart fine (and my glasses are broken, mind you). I dunno, maybe it's just me.

Also, sticking up for the good Reverend, I'm pretty sure he meant "I think she just wants to see Patrick suffer as much as half the people who read this comic (want him to suffer)." Just to clear up any and all confusion.

WL (Guest), September 17th, 2011, 2:08 pm

> and i didn't think you would do a NPH cameo. he was in 'smurfs'... *ugh*

He has kids now, so of course he was in Smurfs.

Barb (Guest), September 18th, 2011, 4:05 am

I think I can safely speak for both myself and anyone else who has said they can't tell Peter and Patrick apart, and note that we don't mean that literally. I trust that yes, everyone can use various indicators to figure out which is which. It's more that, for a moment there, we'd mistaken Peter for Patrick or vice versa, while we were busy reading the text and not focusing on the image. It's not that we're blind.

I'm not sure about everyone else, but typically when reading through a comic I focus on the text before the art. Up until now, Peter has been the only character that's look anything like well, Peter. When I glanced at the panel to register who was talking, I registered Peter as the first speech bubble when it was in fact Patrick.

It's not like it's a problem that won't correct itself with time. But I think his hair looks even worse than before, so I'm all for it just going back to black or something entirely different.

@VenNumberTen: yep. And she's right, which makes her even hotter. ;-)
