I don't know that I'm looking forward to any of the comments that will happen on this page, but have at it.

And hey, cameos! Justin C (I opted for the shaggy shag,) and Ellie in the background!

Sleazy Guy!
Aha! Mr Sleazy and/or Mistreated. 'Twas only a matter of time before he and Peter shared a common space. This can only result in great violence or great revelation, or possibly both.

Also, really..."Why are you mad at me". A)He didn't accuse her of inviting him, he asked. And that was, tbh, a perfectly reasonable question.
B) He has a good point. Rick has made a definite habit of being wherever Lauren has, pretty much anytime we as an audience see her.

Also, I want to say the facial expressions in this particular page are some of my favorites from the entire time this thing has been running.

I was right!!
Well... sorta.

I still don't know if it was what it looked like but I was correct in that such a thing wouold not come to light so soon.

Rotten timing.

I think it's getting close to time Slugger reminds us all how he got the nickname Slugger.

EDIT: In fact I just re-read the the fight scene at the first One Inch Punch performance and when he dispensed some vengeance at Devon. Just gotta re-find when he actually got the name Slugger. I also noticed how drastically the style improved from then to now, even forgot there was some black and white too... What's up with that? But yeah, I might just simultaneously start over and keep up now, relive what got me hooked.

Re-EDIT: Found the origin of slugger: http://picturesofyou.smackjeeves.com/comics/128598/1-01-a-step-out-of-the-wilderness-15/ and I'm totally starting over again B|

Gibson, I get the impression that you don't agree with everyone's feelings on Rick. I also get the impression you may identify with Rick on some level, and that's why you don't like what people have to say about him. That's not a judgement or an insult, by the way; just something I wonder about.

Teenlink, March 7th, 2013, 12:47 am

My guess as towards why he's not looking forward to the comments is that our good friend Mr. Twist know many things we don't about the coming events. Perhaps it's not Sam we're supposed to side with in Twist's perfect world, but Rick. The new guy who just wants to be friends with Lauren, but is experiencing a hateparty from her friends. I've had that experience with my group of friends before when one girl tried to introduce her new boyfriend. It did not go well.

DemonicMRX11 (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 12:58 am

@Teenlink: Could be, but remember the very beginning of Book One in the "present" Andy and Peter are going to a party at Lauren and Sam's, so they're gonna find their way through any drama ;)

Gibson Twist, March 7th, 2013, 1:09 am

@Christina: @Teenlink: At the risk of breaking the silence that authors should employ, my feelings here have nothing at all to do with how people are perceiving Rick. But the story isn't over, and my job is only to deliver the information, much as I might want to proselytize.

Clearly old Slugger is on hand to sort out any problems with a falcon punch.

yayness (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 3:33 am

All caught up! I'm not touching Rick with a barge-pole but I think that Michelle has a crush on Peter...

harkness (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 3:44 am

really though
Screw all this Sam versus Rick noise. I'm worried about Wiley and what peter said back when this thing started. I'm just like, "Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck."

On another note, CAN NOT GET ENOUGH. Need hourly updates. Cpt. Twist, make it so!

Onyxlight, March 7th, 2013, 5:32 am

OMG you didn't *shakes fist at you Mr. Twist* What the hell was Michelle going to say?

Grrrr... Now I'm ready to choke "that guy" >.< ... fuck

Onyxlight, March 7th, 2013, 6:10 am

@Rhem: It was a reasonable question and I agree the facial expressions are a complete win especially Peter and Michelle first panel.

And dude just looks like a douche

Onyxlight, March 7th, 2013, 6:10 am

@Rhem: It was a reasonable question and I agree the facial expressions are a complete win especially Peter and Michelle first panel.

And "that guy" just looks like a douchebag to me...

NicoleW (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 7:24 am

Sam really didn't listen to a thing Michelle said, did he? That's too bad, because I think Michelle was right.

Jeffko, March 7th, 2013, 8:20 am

@NicoleW: That's a bingo!

Hornet (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 9:47 am

This might be fun.

AtypicalGuest (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 10:24 am

Dear Characters...
Dear Michelle and Peter: PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE happen already! *sitting on pins and needles*

Dear Sam: You need to find a way to ask her honest questions without the angry tone. Remember what Michelle said!

Dear Lauren: Stop being defensive. You haven't done anything wrong and your man is bringing up a good point (even if he is saying it in a jackass-kind-of-way).

Ohhhhhh man. Let the fireworks commence!

Tarabba, March 7th, 2013, 10:44 am

Sam does bring up a point, he is ALWAYS there... that is a little creepy--I almost want to go back and reread the whole thing and see if he has in fact been there the whole time! D: How creepy would that be?!!

Also, Rick's expression in the last panel made me laugh. We'll see where this goes, I won't speculate any further.

Manda B (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 11:56 am

Ok yeah, whatever, Rick's there. But Michelle was totally about to ask Peter out!!!

Artephius (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 12:03 pm

How in the hell did it take 11 comments before @Onyxlight brings up the most interesting part of this page!

We all know that Lauren and Sam will be fine, Rick is just an afterthought!

Peter and Michelle, on the other hand, thats the story I want to hear!!

@Gibson Twist, stop messing with our emotions, I dont know if I can handle much more climaxing!

kingjedisam, March 7th, 2013, 1:09 pm

Argh! Rotten timing indeed. However the suspense is wonderful at the same time. I love this comic - keep it up Mr.Twist!

akagenki, March 7th, 2013, 1:34 pm

I really don't like Sam or Rick. Lauren just needs to be single until a decent guy comes along. Or forever, because there is no reason why a person shouldn't live and die single. In her case, it's much preferable to the alternatives.

Los (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 4:43 pm

@akagenki: I dunno, I don't think there's really anything wrong with Sam except he doesn't seem to handle stress well. I don't recall him doing anything particularly douchey besides bugging out on Lauren saying she doesn't support him when she got him all that film. In his defense, though, it was a poor choice precipitated by being pretty tightened up about the exhibition and Dildo Rick buzzing around.

Los (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 5:03 pm

I'm torn. Most of me wishes it'll be like:

M: Dammit Peter, I love you and you can't totally trust Kara and I'd totally rock your world. Pick me instead.
P: Okay.

But then Slugger wouldn't be Slugger if he did that. Well, Michelle wouldn't be herself either. I know I think that because Kara's kinda slippery, but she hasn't done anything wrong, per se. She tried setting up that threesome with Michelle, yeah, but I guess in her view of a relationship, that came from a good place? *sigh* Just wish she wasn't so damn inscrutable and didn't have a love'em and leave'em rep.

papanata (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 5:50 pm

@NicoleW: Indeed

Luminous (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 8:22 pm

Be hilarious if that guy were Peter's brother or something.

Zar Kane (Guest), March 7th, 2013, 8:39 pm

Damit Rick
Aw come on! I wanted to see where she was going with that. Rick you make is so easy to hate you. Mostly because:
-Sam turns into a dick
-You are after Lauren when she is not into you
-You're about to meet Slugger's fist... wait no that's something you got going for you.

Rick, just back off and stop flirting with her and everything would be fine. They might not lick you but they might accept you then.

akagenki, March 14th, 2013, 1:03 pm

@Los: Everything you say is completely valid, but I have almost no tolerance for any kind of jealousy or possessiveness even when there's a supposed excuse for it. A person who doesn't handle stress well can make you pretty damn miserable as well. I definitely think Sam is better than Rick, but I still don't like him.
