Oh gosh! Someone’s about to either get some or get raped.
Dirty mind. They could be playing dress-up. Though I think a murder-rape scene would take Shortpacked! in a bold new direction.
Like the Great Shit Shower of 1999 took Roomies! in a bold new direction?
Oh come on, let’s be honest. At least 67% of the depicted sex in Shortpacked is at least partially rapey.
And 99% is totally awsome
There relationship is gonna fail due to how alike they are. Ethan is never happy we can’t start now.
aww… let them enjoy it. No doubt the drama will bite them in the ass soon, but I like seeing Ethan happy for a bit.
Can I just say I freakin’ love these “painterly” backgrounds?
Panel two is just gorgeous.
Actually, Panel 2 really bugs me. It looks to me like Ethan and Drew are standing in front of a green screen.
AND NOW YOU CAN’T UNSEE IT
secrets of shortpacked revealed!
With new directors commentary, watch in amazement as secrets are revealed, and filming techniques are examined!
Find out shooting schedules used, and which scenes had to be reshot and added in post!
“Hi. I’m in… Delaware.”
“Dela-WHERE??” I’m from PA, so we do joke that way about the First State. Let me guess – by the way today’s story goes, you’re from Rehoboth Beach?
No! Of course it doesn’t!
… It’s obviously back-projection.
Dang it! Now it looks like Ethan and Drew were pasted onto a painting. It looks nice was my first response and then you had to say green screen.
Eh, it still looks fantastic, even if you don’t agree.
I checked and… I just don’t see the green screen effect much on panel 2. I mean… maybe a little bit? But not really.
Also, had to laugh that it took Ethan three panels to get what Drew said.
I seem to be failing to not unsee it. Still looks awesome to me.
It looks like a painted set. But a VERY AWESOME painted set. *nods*
Yay! I’ve been waiting for the Drew storyline to come back again!
Ethan’s so oblivious. XD
And this relationship better work out. There are enough dysfunctional relationships going on around here. THE DRAMA GOD SHOULD BE SATISFIED.
Ethan will have trouble f**cking men. Calling it right now.
False, he has already slept with Mike, multiple times if I recall correctly.
True, but from what I’ve gathered, sleeping with Mike is apparently a torrential downpour of sensual gratification on par with being massaged by angels. My guess is that if there’s going to be a problem here, Drew’s performance isn’t going to measure up to Mike’s abilities and leave Ethan wanting.
Don’t get me wrong, I REALLY want this relationship to work. This is just a guess on my part…
Ah-ha ha, though! We never really got a full disclosure as to who was doing the banging and who was the bang-ie! Because Ethan (and Amber, if I’m remembering right) was (were) COMPLETELY blitzed from his (their) night of drinking and the next day was trying to work out when Mike was with him and when he snuck back to Amber multiple times… back on Oct, 20, 2008 in the strip labled Timetable.
That kind of haziness leaves David a bit of a wiggle-room to run with Ethan doing just as Mr. Miller speculated.
If Willis was so inclined.
p.s. Mike mentioned the metaphorical crotch kick was a three-fer… then Faz hands Mike back the “sensual lotion” and Mike corrects himself to make it a “four-fer” – does that mean Faz got into the action and had the sexings with Ethan or Amber… or both?!? That’s a Faz-tery right there, yes?
Alright, I’m just going to drop in and say that I’m pretty convinced now this guy IS Mike in disguise or something.
Aaaaaa, Birdemic is the best thing.
Yhea, Birdemic is pretty awesome
Ethan is going to blow it
I thought the correct usage was “blow him.”
Well, that certainly seems to be the plan…
Hottest Shortpacked! ever! Although do you mean “Apart” in that last panel? I demand this not be interrupted by comedy in the next installment! It’s time to pull the Hardcore Porn Tab!
Damn it, dude, you’re right! I can’t unsee it!
Using green screens in your comic is cheating.
I say once, I say it again. DREW IS HOT!!!!! If Drew is a power bottom I want him.
I agree with RickZarber about the backgrounds– yeah, it’s lacking in depth but it’s LUVERLY! <3 And Ethan has never slept with another man before, right? Yeah, this is akward…
Well, except Mike hehe
And Mike was just being a jerk, so probably did at least most of the work.
I forgot about Mike! 0_o
There is no emoticon powerful enough to express my joy at reading this strip.
I don’t know about emoticons, but your Roadblock certainly isn’t helping.
“A smiley face just don’t make the grade, I can’t show my joy that he’s gettin’ laid!”
I just realized how utterly brilliant your comment is. Roadblock rhymes FTW!
I love how Ethans cheeks look in the last pannel.
Willis you make me so happy, please do not continue the thing where Ethan can never be happy, there has been so much personal growth, goddammit if the Drama Gods must be satisfied sacrifice Evan and Thad’s relationship, if that’s what it takes.
P.S. MY GOD THOSE CHEEKS!
P.P.S. Let there be makeouts, and much happiness, and so forth. Or else I will cry. Maybe.
Please don’t let Ethan and Drew get caught in “the Relationshipocalypse”! It’s hard enough to find a depiction of a gay relationship, (especially in webcomics). This storyline has quickly made Shortpacked into my favorite webcomic.
Please don’t sacrifice this couple to The Gods of Drama!
Should that read ‘tell apart later’? Or is ‘tell part later’ a colloquial phrase that I’m not hip to?
Am I the only one who thinks that’s a bit of a sudden suggestion for Drew? I mean, it seems sudden… this is like what, date three for them? (Date two if you don’t count the couple of times Drew has visited Ethan’s work.)
… And don’t rip his shirt, man. Shirts are expensive. Just label the size tags.
Date 3 isn’t all that uncommon a time…
In fact, it’s practically cliche.
To the point of being the plot of an episode of Big Bang Theory a few weeks ago. Treated as not just typical, but a nigh-inviolable rule.
I guess that would explain why guys never take me out on a 4th date. Alas.
I did like where this seemed to be going … until I read Joe England’s comment … I am disappointment
those shirts are f’n awesome…love to find something like that on teefury, etc..
Ethan is too adorable for words. <3
But you're moving mighty fast there, aren't you, Drew?
If I was Drew, I’d be teasing the hell out of Ethan every chance I got, just to get him used to the idea that he is gay and it’s just like being straight, only with more penises.
Also? Ethan’s so damn cute
Eww. They’re gonna do gay things to each other! Can’t they just be like those movie and TV gays that don’t ever have sex?
One could ask the same thing about those breeders (aka heteros).
Bring on the gayness! Whoo!
Something still needs to be done about Drew’s stubble. It’s like he faceplanted onto a barbeque or something.
To quote Robin: oh god they are gonna bang so hard
I am such a dyke but I looove the Ethan blush!
For as hot & heavy the sexings are gonna be, I still say today’s comic has a deep ‘awwwwwwwwwwww!’ factor. Mainly because Ethan’s just so danged loveable! *Smiles* Good for him.
I think Drew’s just teasing him. Kind of like the whole “I also like your twelve inches” comment
Damn you Willis, just when I doubt you, you prove me wrong…
Speaking as a gay guy, I do have to say I was a little confused when Robin and Les’ sexuality became a major story arc before Ethan could even have a relationship…But kudos to you for this…I love the irony of the (well, relatively) stable relationships falling apart just as Charlie Brown finally gets the little red head girl.
Great work, really.
I think Robin/Les happening prior to Ethan having anything happen has more to do with Robin’s impulsiveness. Robin dives in head first, while Ethan takes forever to make decisions or take action.
In panel 2, I don’t see it so much as a green screen…it feels like…you know those scenes in movies where two people are standing in front of a romantic scene and then the camera zooms out and we see that it’s actually a studio backdrop being moved by some mover-guys? Yeah, that’s what it feels like to me.
PS: What’s a gay?
As much as I’m enjoying this story-arc (and this entire comic series), I can tell you one major flaw – Ethan and Drew met online. And those online hookups just seem to never work out.
ZOMG Ethan’s going to get some!
Now to ruin this comic forever by talking about the character’s sex lives!
So is Ethan a top or bottom and will you be drawing them doing it??? ;P
*ruins the strip for others forever*
I think these things, some really good or very terror!
Mr. Willis, sir?
Can you draw me a real-life boyfriend? You write the most adorable/attractive gay characters I have ever seen. It makes me smile… then feel lonely…*sob*
This…..This is a good plan.
I have to admit, the first time I saw this I thought Drew was going to turn out to be a rapist of the “you know you want this” variety.
I’m glad I was wrong.
