Wow. So, comparatively, Jacob is now the new guy again. Weird.
Galasso always did want to be a supervillain.
PM, who is your avatar today? It looks vaguely manga-like.
Takuto from Inazuma Eleven Go, a soccer RPG.
It WAS Takuto, now it’s Mari Makinami Illustrious.
Galasso is a supervillain. He’s just not a very impressive one. He’s like Killer Moth or the Walrus.
Then again, the closest thing the Walkyverse has to superheroes is probably Mike and Robin, and they work for him. Perhaps this is all part of his master plan.
As does Spider-Car for that matter. And Amazi-Girl owes him her second born.
Hmmm…this is sounding increasingly sinister now that I think about it.
Welp, we’re screwed.
Y’know, that was very rude.
To Killer Moth.
Agreed. If I could get away with it, I’d do it at least once a day.
A thus a fan fic is born. Probably not, but it could be fun.
Shouldn’t Jacob know better, or did he forget everything in the last year he was gone?
Really. Jacob must have taxed his brain with all the exertion the last couple months.
“LOOK, RHINOS! RHINOS! OUR ENEMY HIDE IN METAL BOXES! THE COWARDS! THE FOOLS!”
We will take AWAY their METAL BOXES!
You two are my new best friends.
It’s among his top three words for employees, along with “Lackeys” and “MINIONS!”
Who’s that guy talking to Jacob? I don’t think we’ve seen him before…
I think his name’s Chun-Li
That would be Alex.
The names Cammy.
I’m pretty sure that’s Rolento.
He’s Brian, and so’s his wife.
Dude, E. Honda’s been in at least twenty strips by now!
He has clearly been established as Zangeif.
Oh come on, he’s clearly Marth.
it’s just a serv-bot. pay it no mind.
I think that’s Hakan.
I feel sorry for Blanka, everyone gets his name wrong.
Are you kidding? Guile’s been a part of the cast for a while now.
Are you dense? Are you retarded or something? He’s the g*ddamned Batman!
It’s Kilik. Or Lloyd Irving, take your pick.
I love how he lopes away.
What if, instead of yelling “fools,” Gallasso liked to smoke or drink, would we really be expecting them to just shrug it off?
What? How dare Jacob question Galasso’s shouting? It’s a totally harmless habit! Clearly Jacob’s just being abusive! You’re better off without him, Galasso!
Oh, I see what you did thar. Good show Sir or Madame
Gallasso was shouting “fools” one time in 5 minutes. That’s 12 times an hour, 288 times a day. That’s a problem, and Jacob has a right to be concerned.
Cue 300 angry comments about whether Jason is justified in wanting Gallasso to cut down on his shouting.
What if, instead of arguing as to whether or not Jacob is justified in wanting Gallasso to cut down on his shouting to the extent that Jacob requires, no compromise, those posters were smoking and drinking, would you still lump them all together like that?
I think I should try that from time to time. Stress relief.
It works wonders. As does “Curses!” and “You will rue this day!”. “What treachery is this?!” is also a great conversation starter.
As someone with the vocabulary of a supervillian I highly endorse the use of this language.
No, not you! I was just suggesting a… oh, nevermind. *Slinks back to Disgruntled Lair muttering to self*
Or, you know, running down a high school hallway with your best gal-pal screaming “Thunder, Thunder, THUNDER CATS! HOOOOOOOOO!”
Even better: Do it in the English wing.
How the fuck did Jacob crawl out of his little hole? Willpower?
as powerful as jacob’s compulsions are, he has no resistance against… the script!
Amber recently approached him offering to get him his job at the store back (?ish? it was unclear if he was ever officially fired or just stopped showing up but stayed on the rolls) and apparently their conversation + mike and amber getting married was enough to shake him out of his stupor.
He WAS fired. Amber said she would hire him back if he wanted, and then told Ethan she would pay for his therapy. There’s a lot of Jacob’s storyline skipped, in terms of convincing him to leave his apartment and rehab. That makes me wonder if there’s been a timeskip, seeing as how rehab can be a long, gruelling process.
Ah. In that case I would have to go with “grueling HR processes are not funny and thus do not make good comics,” perhaps with a side order of “Galasso probably just had Jacob sign on the line to father him an heir.”
At least he is finally putting that sex addiction to good use.
That “FOOLS!” sounds all wrong in your head if you’ve been watching Soul Eater. But I’m guessing not too many people around here get The Funimation Channel…
I was hoping I wasn’t the only person who read that in Excalibur’s voice. X-D
Well I wasn’t before.
Now I am.
It’s now at LEAST 20% funnier.
You Should be Watching.
…I feel like a creeper now…
Jacob and Ken are gonna do it. The sexual tension is so obvious.
Ken? I think you mean Gen.
Yeah that’s what this comic needs. MORE gay people.
Is there a limit to how many gay people a comic can have?
Yeah, surprisingly the limit is 100%.
That’s what *everything* needs.
As we all know, there’s a strict natural law against more than five non-heterosexual people existing in a single building at any given time.
Shortpacked! needs MOAR transexuals and genderqueers.
Actually, the strip has one lesbian, one homosexual, and three bisexuals.
To be fair since both have expressed interest in women it’d be MORE bisexuals.
Status Quo is God.
What font did you use for “FOOLS!”? I’m quite curious.
“Feast of Flesh” from BlamBot.
Feast of Flesh is awesome. And so is Blambot.
You know you’re too into your work when you notice fonts that you use all the time being used all over the place.
Like the cover for the movie Bitchslap:
BAM! Feast of Flesh.
And don’t get me started on how overused BadaBoom is these days.
Yeah, Badaboom used to be Shortpacked!’s font. It was ejected. Got tired of seeing it everywhere.
BadaBoom is out now? Man, I am not in with the font times. Is there a some sort of stylish typography magazine I’m not aware of?
Not that I’m aware of. But the documentary “Helvetica” was much better than you’d think a film about typography would be.
I would suggest using Hylian, but I found out that it’s actually just a reiconed version of Japanese, sorta like how they swapped english letters for Al Bhed in the english version of FFX.
“Font Times” would be a good name for a Newspaper. Straight and to the point.
Would that be Courier 12 point or 14 point?
Just out of curiosity, what font do you use for typical speech bubbles? I’ve always suspected it’s one you designed based on your handwriting…
Yeah, Willis’ font is based on his own handwriting, I can’t remember when or where I learned that fact, but it has stuck with me for a while.
So is Badaboom the new Comic Sans MS?
You know you’re a nerd when someone posts that link, and your first thought is “Ooh, hey, that gun looks like a P-90!”
And now I can’t stop seeing him dressed as Excalibur from Soul Eater.
So everyone can get the audio-visual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5solAHM-E4
Just another normal day.
Shouldn’t Jacob have eyebrows, or something?
Not really… they’re visibility sort of comes and goes as his mood/facial expression changes. It’s really visible in the conversation between him and Amber (and later Ethan) back in August, where they’ll be in one panel then gone a couple later.
Can someone please draw Galasso as Dr Galasso, Lord of Latveria, archnemesis of the Fantastic Four?
What about Serpentor, the Supreme Ruler of COBRA?
Everyone could use a Galasso break. Galasso breaks make everything better.
I think Galasso is kind of on target this time. Sure it’s purely coincidental but I find it hard to argue with him.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, assuming it’s an analog clock and not digital.
That depends if it’s stopped because of no battery, or just that it’s blinking 12:00.
Technically, he could yell it at his entire staff and still be correct.
Wow, Jacob cleaned up good.
I think the clipboard is simply obscuring his gargantuan gut.
Hard to believe Jacob has already forgotten about Galasso’s… eccentricities…
Well, it’s fun to say.
They are to be pitied.
Well, let’s see. Ken’s got a crush on Malaya, and Jacob slept with Roz, so…yeah. Tell it like it is, Galasso.
Willis, I love your price gun. I don’t know why I’m focusing on that, BUT I AM XD
Oh Galasso I have missed you
I’m curious, Walky. Are we supposed to imagine Raul Julia’s M Bison voice whenever Galasso speaks?
Because that’s totally what I’m picturing here. Heck, the unseen fifth panel has him reply to Ken with an “OF COURSE!”
I imagine Galasso having Dinobot’s voice.
WILLIS YOU FOOL
Get it? Galasso’s craaaazy. Never heard that joke before.
I identify with Galasso strongly for some reason.
Of course, the REAL truth is that David Willis just likes to draw Galasso saying “Fools”, and hasn’t had an opportunity to do it lately.
Of course, Galasso knew this and used it to his favor. He’s a meta-villain.
Galasso, how we’ve missed you.
Unless I missed something, this is THE least impressive return of a relatively important character in any series, ever. especially following a recovering from the level of problem he had just a few weeks earlier.
Well if it’s the LEAST impressive doesn’t that just make it a little bit impressive anyway? Like, in a meta way.
Only in math.
has Jacob been out of the loop for so long that he forgot about Galasso?
For som reason, whenever I see the word FOOLS written in all-caps, my head-voice defaults to Mako.
Foolish samurai. . .
Ah, looks like Adon is becoming suitably jaded.
*drops flash grenades 3 feet into the doorway*
You’re in my spot, sir.
Please have Ethan wind up with Ken!
They even had canon contact:
This plan can only work if Ken is turned off women first.
You know and I know that nobody is concretely heterosexual in Shortpacked. Not even FAZ!
You would think having already worked there before, Jacob would know this fact.
He looks like Norman Osborn, talks like Doctor Doom…is he also a master of magnetism?
Burnt out from this week, eh?
Ah, back to the good old “FOOLS!”. About time.
I somehow think this would have been funnier if Jacob and Zangeif had just resumed what they were doing without commenting on it at all.
You know…it’s been a really long time since we’ve seen Ninja Rick.
