And with this strip I realize that Joyce and Walky! is a redundant creative outlet.
REALLY? the comic where almost EVERY character is gay or bisexual is somewhat GAY?
i am a homosexual myself, but you are a faggot
Sudenly we have reverse discrimination?
he is calling gay characters in a webcomic full of gays and bisexuals gay as if it was unexpected. even if he doesn’t have sex with men, he is still a total fag.
Simmer down, Rasputin. Jen was being goofy – I’m sure no disrespect was meant.
Look, Im going to take the risk of being obnoxious. Apply logic to the phrase “SO GAY”, It means this situation represents something that can happen in a homosexual relationship True or false?
Ad homine, can we just go over the liberal politically correct, dont make a misunderstand something to fight over. When assuming inmediatly that someone is against us or meaning ill then you just look like those “liberal lesbian eco feminists” that are fun in cartoons but are misleading. I would like less lesbians but a comic about gay man doesnt sell
I don’t think any of that’s coherent. I can’t even tell if it’s offensive or not. Can you rewrite in English, maybe?
Translation (of the last sentence): LESS LESBIANS, MOAR GAY MEN!
Which doesn’t make sense, because they’re functionally equivalent.
But one is a lot hotter than the other (depending on your persuasion).
I hope you feel bad for me. I have to use my laptop to respond to this because my fiancee put a freakin shoe through the computer monitor. A freakin SHOE. Watch what you say, dude.
It looks like something that came out of the unfathomable depths of Babel Fish.
Men, It was late and I had a hard day. Is a sin using an online translator once in a while?
What I was saying is that you cant criticize someone that said this situation is “so gay”, cause It is (and thats the joke). Is not like he was saying “gay people suck”. But with all those liberals out in the street you cant even ask for a BLACK coffe. Its just paranoid.
And I just dont like lesbians, all lesbians that I know are mean to me just cause I have a penis, Gays I know are nice and open and laugh at my jokes. If It was up to me there would be less lesbians in the comic, sue me If you think Im capricious
the gay men are nice to you because (for some reason) they want to sleep with you.
Presumably, the lesbians, having no ulterior motive, are more honest in their reaction to you.
“Meat Spaghetti” sounds like a euphemism to me…
Glad I’m not the only one who went “MAN that’s a strange nickname for .. something”
Meat Spaghetti sounds about as flattering as pencil dick.
I love Leslie’s perplexed look.
Creative? With most of the later strips on J&W!, it seemed like you were showing us things that happen to you in your life.
I assure you, it wasn’t just the later ones.
The possibilities disturb me
Really? Do you think Chipotle is more special than Taco Bell?
It costs more.
I wonder then, we could’ve all been possible abductees and just didn’t realize it. SO THAT’S how I can belch so well, HEH
That’s one thing I’ve always wondered but been afraid to ask. And now I know my fear was justified.
Oh here’s another, did you get the cleaned up and colored fanart? I sent it to you a couple days ago… I wasn’t sure if the e-mail address I sent it to was still active (it’s the one on the Joyce and Walky comic)
I have it! There’s art from both you and Brian Daniel that I need to put up.
Would that mean that as far as the relationship shown in J&W! went, Joyce often took Maggie’s role and Walky was the stand-in for you?
Put that together with your statement of Joyce being an autobiographical character and that results in some weird-ass author narcissism.
NOOOO!!! Alfredo is so high in saturated fats! And I intended to get you whole wheat pasta! DAMN YOU ETHAN! DAMN YOU WHY DON’T YOU WANT TO LIVE!!!
I hope he makes LOSSA SPAGHETTI.
To go with the BAGEL?
“Ha ha! I shall exact my revenge on you by punishing my body with unhealthy food! It makes COMPLETE SENSE!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!
We don’t know how it affects his odors… or tastes… let alone the health issues.
hey drew, some alfredo is d*mn good
wouldnt it be better to eat it without any sauce?
If by “better” you mean “healthier, yet much less satisfying”, yes.
Unfortunately, that’s a rather common substitution.
Well, then it wouldn’t be a balanced meal, either. Bolognaise has the protein and the vegetables covered; pasta on its own is just grains.
…What kind of sick freak are you?
i get that alot. close your eyes and i shall close the box, and when you reopen your eyes you will not be drawn to like a fly to big pile of dungus.
i prefer randomly putting 2 or 3 seasonings in my spaghetti. and yes, i count ketchup as a seasoning.
i was replying to arjay… and to all of yall. plus we have spaghetti alot in this house, its very affordable.
i’m sorry, i was distracted by the pretty, pretty nuggets of you’re gravatar image….
McNuggets in Alfredo sauce: the food of the gods.
um…… I think I missed a comic where the dude with the brown hair appeared. Can someone tell me who he is?
That’s Ethan’s boyfriend Drew. Just click the tag below the comic for all his appearances.
Robin and Leslie went on the internet to find a boyfriend for Ethan, and they found Drew who was the best candidate out of a bunch of wierdos and Batman
incidently, i’m not gay, but i’d gladly date Batman, just as long as i didn’t have to wear the old robin get up with the scaly green speedo
Not optional. Sorry.
If you’re willing to dress up in a leather cat outfit you can get as far as casual flirtation though, so there’s that for people who aren’t willing to partake in the full scaly green experience.
Dating Batman doesn’t mean you’re gay. Sexy badass who can protect you and provide for you without being boring? Date that. It means you’re SMART.
It’s not gay if it’s Batman…
It’s not gay if it’s Batman…
It’s not gay if it’s Batman…
“Sexy badass who can protect you and provide for you without being boring?”
Jason Todd, Stephanie Brown, and Oracle all question the merits of said protection.
And in what universe is “can’t do anything tonight, gotta hunch over on a rooftop waiting to find someone to punch in the face” not gonna get boring?
If you want a fun date, call Superman. Spur of the moment jaunts to Beijing / Fortress of Solitude / Outer Space, pretty sure he can cook, and he’s kept Lois out of harm’s way for 80 years even though I’m pretty sure she has an active death wish.
Superman is, canonically, an amazing cook. Plus he’s emotionally available, which is a concept that just causes Batman to scowl and say “I’m Batman.”
“Jason Todd, Stephanie Brown, and Oracle all question the merits of said protection.”
Which of them were dating him?
Selina Kyle, then. Literally had her heart cut out. Lived, though.
(really a reply to Patrick McGraw)
One: Dating within the team always leads to disaster. Two: You’re a princess from a society of immortal warriors. I’m a rich kid with issues… lots of issues. And three: If my enemies knew I had someone special, they wouldn’t rest until they’d gotten to me through her.
@dangermouse: You make a very valid set of grievances and arguments. I might make a suggestion about where they could best be filed.
Dammit, now I’m hungry at frigging midnight. And there’s spaghetti in my fridge.
If I wind up waking at 3 am to scarf pasta, it’s all your fault, Willis.
Also, I liked the whole Joyce and Walky! series and the two that came before it. I, like many others, are waiting for you to pick up your pen and pencil to write (or Draw) more of it.
All in all, is alfredo the worst thing he could be eating? I mean its not like he’s off to drown his sorrows in mcnuggets
Wow, that honeymoon phase sure ended fast…
They’ve been dating for more than a year, actually: http://www.shortpacked.com/2010/comic/book-11/01-no-thanks-to-eharmony/drew/
Our time or their time? It’s not like you’re immune to compressed storytelling (cite: DoA).
DoA is my first comic that has characters that don’t age in real time. That’s one of its special features, and what sets it apart from my other works.
Drew in the final panel with any assorted bubble text and snarky bubble response would be a fine meme.
“NOOOOO, SHINJI, DON’T GO EMO (again)!”
“Should have thought of that before watching this series, chump!”
I’m confused, are they having a real fight or having fun at eachother’s expense? I can’t tell if Ethan is genuinely pissed and being ridiculously petty or if he’s just teasing.
I think in this universe, the line blurs a little…
So, is he being genuinely petty or is Ethan just being dramatic for the sake of comedy? I mean, the guy dresses up like Batman for sex. I would think Ethan could let this slide.
For the record, I’ve never read Joyce and Walky. Been waiting for it to finish up before I spend money on it, as I figure there will be some book produced afterwards and this will save me from buying the same comic twice. Would anyone care to explain what comparison is being drawn between today’s page and Joyce and Walky?
Autobiographical relationship humor. That is all, as far as I can tell.
Ah, fair enough. Thanks.
Incidentally, most of the autobiographical, slice-of-life J&W strips are free. While there’s some of that in the subscription comics, they’re more centered around the story arcs of the main It’s Walky! characters post It’s Walky!.
Cream sauce or bust. Can’t stand tomato sauce in heavy amounts.
So which one’s you and which one’s Maggie this go-around?
I’m… kinda lost, plot-wise. Drew’s back from where exactly? Wasn’t it just Ethan and Leslie who were out on the prowl for toys/”adventure” last couple of strips ago?
I can kind of tell there must’ve been a time shift in between then and now in the comic, cuz Les’ shirt is not purple like Ethan’s anymore… but it feels like I missed a strip somewhere.
So was Drew’s line just a non-sequitur, Willis? :/
And just had 2 plates of the microwaveable Marie Callender’s Fettuccini with Chicken & Broccoli in Alfredo sauce just because of this strip: ssssooooo goooood!
Dude, it’s just cream and butter and a handful of seasonings (if you make it yourself and if you count “Parmesan cheese” as a “seasoning”).
Ethan. Get Vodka sauce. So good
NOOOOOO! He was so young!
Calling it: Ethan and Drew are staging an excalating fight and breakup over petty reasons to show Leslie how she acted toward Robin, in a bid to get them back together.
Whether this will actually work or not remains to be seen. . .
Yes. Mental instability, chemical abuse, and extra-relational sexual activities (recorded no less), are totally in the petty reasons department.
Even assuming that Robin’s complete inability to behave like a sane person, or even like a consistently insane person (maybe the kind of insane where they still always remember where they are, what’s going on etc etc) was not an issue (which it likely wasn’t). Even assuming Leslie has no problem with Robin using sugar to exacerbate the damage done to her mind in the alien experiments (once more, I think Leslie is actually cool with that). Robin still had sex with a non-leslie entity. Not only that, but she recorded it and threw it up on youtube, but shaming Leslie on a global scale and making her pain public.
I would hope that at least one of these two fully grown and functional people would realize that throwing your partner out on her ass after she’s caught cheating isn’t exactly comparable to a petty squabble over dinner arrangements. One is a petty dispute over something insignificant, the other is pretty much accepted as a relationship killer. If you’re caught in the bed of another, there’s not a whole lot of recovering from that. Some people do find it in themselves to forgive, but no one blames those who don’t.
Bear in mind that the DeSanto-Manley “Act” happened after the break-up and throwing-out-on-her-ass.
1) Fight. Leslie lets Robin go.
2) Banging occurred. Video occurred.
3) Robin returns, Leslie kicks Robin out.
4) Then the DeSanto/Manley Act is drafted and passes Congress.
OR it’s a daily comic and it’s just a joke.
Wouldn’t that be rather out of character for Drew and Ethan? Drew seems pretty anti-drama, and Ethan is usually smart enough to stay out of other people’s relationship problems due to the fact he’s too obsessed with his own stuff. This seems a bit to over-the-top and manipulative for them.
All I’m getting from this strip is, David needs to start eating healthier.
You should probably be getting that from my Foursquare check-ins.
you are the mayor of taco bell, after all :p
Y’know, maybe being the mayor of one Taco Bell isn’t enough.
you probably heard of this already, but if not:
So, is this your subtle way of reminding Maggie to bring you home some spaghetti?
I hope she made lottsa spaghetti!
Those dorito shells cannot be conducive to a lengthy lifespan
Ah man. I totally checked Shortpacked! just as I was polishing off a bowl of fettuccine alfredo.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD WILLIS.
Oh god I want to get to Olive Garden so much right now. Wheat pasta and meat sauce and giant meatballs.
But no garlic bread. Why don’t any of the places that have wheat pasta also have garlic bread? Life sucks.
Olive Garden doesn’t have garlic bread? Really? Weird.
Just breadsticks. Not the same.
Psht! Health is overrated. Gimme one of those bacon burgers from Wendy’s and I’m happy. Hee hee!
Oh Ethan, you’re such a bitch. But we love you.
Wow. Not even a hello. Just a “Bitch where’s my food.” Nice, Ethan. And you call HIM a jackass.
Ethan’s secretly a robot designed solely to bring Ethan spaghetti and have Batman-sex with him. Ethan’s concerned that he’s malfunctioning.
I’m sure you mean Drew’s a robot
leslie is just sitting back thinking “sigh, this happens every month…”
Oh noes! D: Not the Alfredo Sauce!!! Even if its delicious
Well if Ethan is anything like me, I get really cranky/bitchy when I get hungry.
Ah. They’re at *that* stage of the relationship, then.
I just noticed…..does he have a flock of seagulls haircut? Like a weak one but still.
