I want Mulligan's shirt, I'm so jealous.

Again, in regards to the B&W v. colour issue, as I've stated before I'm not posting a separate site for the B&W version. It's a major commitment of time, which isn't in great supply lately, where the only pay-off is that it will be seen by a small handful of people, probably only once or twice. That's not to mention the tedium involved in posting it. Anyone who wants to see the B&W version can do so by ordering the book from Lulu or Amazon, which also has the benefit of supporting the comic, which isn't a bad idea. If anyone feels like paying me for the time that it takes me to do it, I'll do it, but otherwise I don't have free space in my schedule, nor do I have any desire to post it.

And before I forget, many thanks to Tina G. and massive thanks to Chris D for your support. You guys kick ass.

This is still my fave webcomic on smackjeeves. :) Loving it, Mr. Gibson. Keep it up.

I love Andy's frantic mom face. Plus, I'm viewig this on my work computer, which has a different screen profile, and it still looks sharp! You rule color.

haha Faith No More?! They've been playing them a lot on the radio lately.

Loving the color of course, in a perfect world you'd be able to do both b&w and color, but you are human and have a life...so I wouldn't worry, the color is pretty sweet, and I think people will get used to it. Keep it up :]

Re colour vs b/w: I already trust you to do as best you can, Mr. Twist. I didn't think of it as a particular difficulty since de b/w pages were already online. And I'll repeat for TacoTotes that I may be the one who most strongly advocated against a change to colour, and that wasn't strongly at all. (There may have been guest Lee A. on Heat 3 who had a stronger gripe, but that was all.)

For the new issues, I don't have to get used to them - I already love them and have said so several times. And will again. Let's leave the subject here and now as far as I'm concerned.

Oh, and three page-related comments: 1) "shit a turkey". Never heard this one before, but I love it. I'll have to use it somehow. (In French, there is "chier une pendule", "shit a clock", with a similar sense, but somehow it sounds even funnier with a turkey.)

2) Nobody took up on Patrick's last sentence, particularly in light of Peter's description in page 1, that explicitily states they don't spend a lot of time in that place. What does that mean? What new atrocities are we bound to discover?

3) By the same token, I fail to understand Mulligan and Andy's exchange in panel 4. I initially thought they were expanding on the joke from the previous panel, but it doesn't feel quite right and contrary to point 2 I'm not certain I'm supposed not to readily understand. Could someone be so kind as to enlighten me, please?

Mulligan didn't really expand on panel three. He basically brushed it off.
"Call it a gift." meant "You don't have to pay me back right away or at all."
The rest of the panel was about the deposit on the apartment. You know, the money he put down when he first got the place.

I'd like to say something here, but anything I say would fail to convey my feeling toward this comic. You are truly a genius, sir, and I look forward to reading more of your work.

I'm glad I finally read through this.
Awesome comic man, there's not much else I can say that you wont have heard before.

Ok, I caught up 8D Sorry for the sudden mini stream of comments. I missed reading this comic <3

I'm still oddly amused that the first thing he thought to save was his guitar.

jd_singer, July 9th, 2009, 5:35 pm

AshleyOutloud : oh, THAT kind of deposit! I didn't even know that was the right word and it never occurred to me I might just look it up. Serves me right for not having english as my mother tongue and taking stuff for granted. Thank you very much for your trouble.

amiko_16: what else would there be to save? He got a shirt, a pair of trousers and a guitar. Being Smilin' Andy Aaron (great middle name, by the way!) Walenski, he will never lack for sweet companionship, so he's covered every way.

Hah, nice Faith No More insert! Though I have to admit I enjoy listening to Mike Patton in Mr. Bungle more, heheh...
