Thats one long big no.
It was also Mark Hammil’s reaction to seeing a vintage Corvette heading for a compactor in “Corvette Summer” !!!
Go figure lol. Tomorrow, the world. I forsee a week of this
Guessed it. Which means I’m sticking with my other guesses: Mike knows by Tuesday, Faz is dead by Friday.
We can only hope
Mike knows by Tuesday, is magically sobered by the idea by Wednesday, has killed Faz by Friday, and the DNA test results come back negative sometime next week.
Nobody regrets Mike’s actions.
I missed the whole “Did Amber fuck Faz” hullabaloo in yesterday’s comments, but is there any chance that Faz’s mom is somehow half-siblings with Amber’s dad, to explain exactly why Faz is like that?
The only thing we know about Faz’s mother is that she gave birth to Faz.
If that. Might not be the case.
Biological mother, I should have specified.
I was looking at this weekend’s updates with my boyfriend over my shoulder, and he asked if Amber just found out if Darth Vader was her father.
I think we need to get Faz a costume. He’s got to be one of the few people that wouldn’t be made *more* annoying by the constant mechanical breath sounds. Just think, every moment he’s making that noise is a moment he’s not talking.
Plus, we’d get to see him as a badly-burned multiple amputee, and then never see him again.
In the films, Darth Vader’s respirator doesn’t get interrupted when he talks – you can actually hear the breath noises “behind” his words. Presumably, his voice is meant to be synthesised, and has nothing to with respiration.
So, Faz Vader could annoy you with his weird breathing noises *and* his asinine drivel at the same time.
Damn, you’re right. Well, the badly burned multiple amputee thing still has merit.
Of course, for that we could just skip the costume and go directly to “drop him in a volcano.”
It is highly debateable whether even that would be enough to destroy the greatness of Faz. He will simply reappear unharmed at a later time in a different story arc.
With a graph explaining his levels of pain while he was gone.
(In other words, a picture of him beat up.)
Here’s hoping they can get a DNA test and Faz isn’t interested in incest.
Can the random button be fixed please? It only goes to the most recent comic. >.>
What browser are you using? I just tried it a few times and I got some random comics.
On Google Chrome it just seems to be the most recent anyway.
Hm. That’s what I’m using.
and it is now magically working again…just I got like 5 in a row of the front page from the random. Crazy.
Probably randomly got the most recent 5 times in a row
I’ve been using firefox, myself. Still getting the front page, but if it’s happening for me and not other people, it could be something I’m managing to do wrong. XD
Yep I have Firefox and it’s happening to me too.
Looks like if you just throw an “=1″ after the link it starts working. Query string fun.
You might want to have the random URL be
since in the former case, your server-side code only has to test whether the value of the parameter ‘randomcomic‘ is nonempty/nonzero, which is really easy, whereas in the latter case you have to somehow detect whether the string ‘randomcomic‘ is present or not, and I could see that being less reliable (depends a lot on what’s doing the parsing of the parameter string; if your parser is expecting a sequence of ‘name=value’ pairs separated by ampersands — what is normally supposed to be there — it may get confused by stuff that doesn’t fit that pattern)
I actually get the same thing, I’ve tried it on 3 different computers using AOL, fire-fox, and Internet Explorer. =[
I think you’ll find that your “THE BIG NO” pretty much covers everything!
Shut up, Amber, Faz is your bro!
Sorry, had to do it.
Hey! George Lucas *stole* that line from Willis anyway! Walky used it wayyy back in December 2000: http://joyceandwalky.com/d/20001206.html (SW: Ep3 was 2005)
And yet Star Wars episode 4 was 1977, when Lucas first used the big NO.
That was just a medium no.
Or he could have gone forward in time, saw the comic and then stole it that way!
Stacy: Okay, the place doesn’t have a liquor license, I get it Amber…
That’s not true… that’s IMPOSSIBLE!
And here is a link to go with it
You know, I’m surprised by how small the McFriendly’s building is. Assuming its only the blue building, I really would have thought it to be as big as the new Shortpacked! building, considering all the stuff it has going on inside.
It’s a Tardis.
Amber says it’s bigger on the inside in Wednesday’s strip.
That’s what she said.
Indeed i would agree it would have to be smaller given the size of the cars next to the building.
And the fact a Car runs shortpacked’s stock room
Wherein David Willis slacks off on writing.
Jesus fuck, you little bitch. I thought, you know, I want to do these comics. But they’re a little low on content, so I’m not so sure about them. But, hey, there’s a weekend, and I don’t update during the weekend, so I can just run these comics during the weekend. They’ll be extra comics. Surplus to the usual. No one in their right mind could possibly complain about two extra free fucking comics. I’ll be able to do the two jokey comics that I want without someone throwing a fit. Sure, it means a little extra work without any dent in the buffer, but I love my readers just that much.
So, yes, I fucking slacked off. I slacked off by drawing two comics more than usual, and then stripped them through the weekend, ensuring that I was increasing my workload and still had to draw five strips for the following week, which is especially pertinent because I’m going to be on the road for two whole weeks that coming Friday, and, really, I could have used all the buffer I could get. I could have thrown those strips onto Monday and Tuesday, thereby saving myself a lot of work and a lot of headache. But I didn’t. Such a fucking slacker.
You know, I could have just deleted your little whiny bitchfest, but I think I’d rather people know what a horrible tiny ungrateful retard you are.
Is that pwned? Because it looks and smells like pwned.
*hands David a cookie*
*slow clap* Well done, Mr. Willis. Well done. Now, go back to sleep, you earned a rest.
Did someone get told?
..Someone got told.
And I’m done trying to sound cool.
Choppers! All surgical teams to the helicopter pad for triage! We got choppers!
Don’t hold back Dave tell ‘em what you really think.
I can only hope that that guy wasn’t being ironic, because, man would you look like a dick.
Irony over the internet is tough to detect without a jk or smiley face or Oh wait… sorta deal.
I’m gonna bet he was being legit though. Oddsmakers, whats the Over Under that he was serious vs ironic?
Hey, I know pretty well what kind of work making a regular webcomic takes, and I respect Willis for being able to handle it. I guess I wasn’t clear that I was just poking fun at him.
No hard feelings, people?
Both these comment are hilarious.
Keep being awesome Willis.
seriously though, how dare you post a comic that has no content, even if it is an additional one that was published on a day when they are not normally published. you owe us, you are obligated to provide us with high quality art work, a good storyline, story arks that take years to frutation and every page must further the story.
if you want artistic freedom, then perhaps you should make a free, independent web comic!
seriously, if that get’s you annoyed, stay off you-tube. i have gotten at least 5 death threats in the last month, and i haven’t posted anything for 2 months or more
This side of Mr. Willis frightens and arouses me.
All sides of Willis arouse and frighten me!
Hm, Monday the entire Earth, Tuesday the solar system, Wednesday the Milky Way, Thursday the Local Group, Friday the Virgo Supercluster, Saturday the universe, Sunday the multiverse…
You could “slack off” for an entire week!
Just to piss this guy off, even.
Willis, you are officially awesome.
Epic wiiiiin. Sometimes normal win just won’t cover it. Epic wiiiiiiiiiiin.
you sir, win.
and your dark side has been revealed.
He DID say he was a threat to everyone around him.
I see no jest can be taken as just that here.
Sarcasm: doesn’t work on the internets.
Sure it does. You just have to not suck at it.
Good on ya, Mr. Willis. Let the idiots suffer!
Wait, no, shit, you forgot the- *thousands of rage comments flood in* …sarcasm tag.
What happened to the robot/dinosaur fight?
Judging by the scale, the robot/dinosaur fight has to be further away from McAwesome’s than Shortpacked! is, because otherwise we’d have only seen the robot’s foot. Thus, the battle is somewhere off the top border of the panel.
And now you know… the rest of the story. (For best effect, that line has to be said in the tone of Paul Rugg imitating Paul Harvey, as per Freakazoid.)
The monkey and the dinosaur and the robot are an animatronic display inside McAwesome’s.
I thought it was just wall paper…
Animatronics, ball pits, …. Ah ha! So McAwesome is really Chuck E. Cheese…
Pft! Haven’t you learned by now from countless drama-filled fanwank threads that the readers are /always/ right? Why should we let your silly ‘facts’ and ‘authorial control of the storyline’ ruin our perfectly good theory… Hold on a moment, someone’s trying to get my attention.
(Memo? What memo? No, I didn’t get the memo. Let me see that. Oh! Hrm.)
Right, then. Turns out, authorial authority is indeed acceptable after all. Never mind, carry on!
The robot & the dinosaur have been obliterated by Amber’s Nooooo!
Be strong Amber, you can still kill yourself!!
If only this were a cartoon. I’d love to know what this would sound like.
It probably sounds almost like a lady Scott McNeil. Just because I’d find that awesome…
Goodness, if you don’t think they have a liquor license, just a simple “I don’t think so” would suffice…you’d think it was a crime against humanity…oh, wait…I get it now.
Geez, that IS a crime against humanity…ew…ick. I threw up in my mouth a little.
So like, is this the same “No” as the last strip from a different angle, or did Amber get a breath, contemplate the situation again, and let out a second, bigger “No”?
I like to think that it’s the same Nooooo!.
Even though it’s another big no, I’m just generally pleasently surprised that this week you’re writing the comic on the weekend. It’s a nice surprise in general to see it, and I just came today by accident and didn’t know before hand.
I think Mr. Willis needs a hug.
I’m sorry I attacked you earlier. I feel bad, because I was having a terrible day and I lashed out terribly. Sorry if I got up under your skin! Your comics are the best, and I apologize for forgetting that I don’t have a right to treat other people like crap. It’s a hard lesson learned, but some day I’ll work through my issues.
No harm done! Thanks for apologizing. It’s good to know that at least your feelings were genuine and that you weren’t some sort of pathetic troll.
Well, that wasn’t me posting, but I echo the sentiment. I figured the joke was a lot more clear than it was. My apologies if I offended you.
Glad to see the fanbase supports you enough to assume my identity and insult me as much as possible while apologizing to you for me, though.
And good on you, sir for acknowledging your mistake. It’s never easy owning up to them.
Poop, poor Amber. I want to hug her.
Didn’t excempt a weekend update, damn you. I saw it today, read it from the end
So, is the building formation around a canon?
Can’t see what Amber’s so upset about. She should look on the bright side. Now Faz will stop hitting on her constantly!
Uhm…. This is Faz. If anything the little Mutant will try even “Harder”. (sorry, it was to easy a shot to let go. )
I’m going to assume that is Mission Street. So Shortpacked! must be in competition with Collector’s Cove.
