Ethan is reading Decepticon Hijack.
Ahh, the classics.
I love this comic so much.
wait, did the missile have the power of 5000 pounds of tnt, or did swoop use 5000 pounds of tnt to drop the missile?
Neither. He didn’t even drop a missile, he dropped a missile launcher. Whether he dropped it with the power of 5000 pounds of TNT or whether the missile launcher that he dropped had the power of 5000 pounds of TNT is a good question, though.
Yay ambiguous phrasing. Personally, I like to imagine that he dropped it on Megatron so hard that it did as much damage as 5000lbs of TNT.
I would have chosen MLP stories but that’s just me.
If it was my kid, I would’ve read it Dragon Ball. Don’t ask me why.
Or Sherlock Holmes.
If I ever have kids, I’m reading them the Evangelion manga so they come out of the womb knowing that life is meaningless and unfair
Anyone know a good Super Robot manga?
Not a manga, no, but you could play the dub of Gurren Lagann.
Nah, I’ll just play Mazinkaizer, Shin Getter Robo and GaoGaiGar.
Bio O, if you can find the manga version, is pretty good. Very film noir esque.
I don’t think Evangelion is a good idea. By the age of 4, the possibility of suicide is pretty high.
“Done because we are too menny”
Never read Gilgamesh and watch Evangelion back to back.
Watching the new movies almost made me throw the blue ray player into the T.V., and not the cheap upstairs T.V., the 50 inch Plasma.
You assume that by the time you have kids, the Evangelion manga will be finished (it just kinda stalled out a few years ago, before the Rebuilds came along).
audio books of tamara pierce books and batman comics here…..
Good call, Though you might want to save the newer Tamaor Peirce for later.
Sherlock holmes. A man after me own heart.
Why? what did the kid do to you? At least go with Ranma 1/2. I would go with Tantric Stripfighter and Spice and Wolf.
Just don’t let Mike pick.
I can imagine Mike reading something sick like ‘The Human Centipede’.
Why does someone know this movie?
I know about the movie because of Phelous’s review of the movie.
Basically, he states that The Human Centipede is a shitty movie.
I still have nightmares from that one…..of how stupid it was. Reader, haven’t seen it? Don’t even waste your time. Even to just say you have seen it.
I’d probably read my kid Sonic The Hedgehog kid’s book’s or play Doctor Who Audio Dramas.
Zagraeus lives inside your head.
And eats you while your sleeping.
I’d read mine Pokemon
…And possibly Death Note
D’awww… a Geewunner in the making….
“Is that my Decepticon?
It says ‘JaAm’.
That is not my Decepticon.”
Best comment ever.
You are my hero for the day, if not the week
Why this, and not the amazing joy of ‘Jaws of Terror!’?
As Tom Selleck proved in THREE MEN AND A BABY, it isn’t what you read, it’s how you read it.
three men and a baby taught me two things. what you wrote, and giraffes = dinosaurs.
Meanwhile, Mike is so drunk that sex would kill the baby.
(Yes, I know that’s not how it works.)
If the sex causes the unborn baby to shake too much, that might kill it, but embronic fluid tends to reduce the effects of shaking.
If Mike got sufficiently drunk that he lost fine motor control, then shaking is the least of the baby’s worries. Unrestrained abductee sex has been known to cause property damage, and while in this universe Amber is Amazi-Girl and both immune to criticism and rather strong for her build, there are limits.
Didn’t that have a record that went with it, one of the littler ones, I don’t feel like looking up vinyl standards to know what they were called. I’m pretty sure I had that as a kid and I think that it had something that read the story. I might be remembering something else, but that cover art looks very familiar.
I don’t have an actual comment so :333333
I wonder if exposing a baby to the Brave Series would have an effect.
I… am ashamed to admit I do believe I still have that book packed away, somewhere. >.>;;;
This comic just had me grinning.
Ethan will make a wonderful godfather. And I can’t help but think maybe Leslie will be the godmother??? DDDD
“my gay god-parents”–the best sitcom never to be seen in ABC Family’s primetime lineup.
Oh, it’d be there. The God-Parents in question would just never ever be seen holding hands or hugging or doing anything to indicate that they actually live up to the title.
Would the pun of calling it My Fairy Godparents be worth it?
Yes, yes it would
You win an intertubes … or at least last weeks greatest invention EVER!!
Yes. Yes it would.
Awesome comic today Mr. Willis!
I like that Amber has apparently been asked the ‘How’s pregnancy’ question enough that she not only has gotten tired of it, but has already formed a standard sarcastic response.
Or maybe Ken just pisses her off for some reason.
She gets asked roughly every fifteen minutes.
… By Ken?
I thought that was E Honda. Who’s Ken?
Ken’s blonde, and into the ladies…so possibly Leslie
The hormones pumping through me make me mostly okay with the giant squirming parasite growing inside my stomach.
I just assumed that, after her relationship to Mike, she was conditioned to respond to things with snark and sarcasm.
Ethan really is going to be the best uncle/big brother/godfather figure for this baby. He just seems like the one who’ll have the most fun entertaining a kid.
do you think he’ll share his toys?
i guess he could share some of his extra batman and superman JLU figures.
4 years later
“but uncle Ethan, batman can’t breath in space…”
“YOU’RE DEAD TO ME”
Well the Mozart effect’s a host so I think that’ll be ok.
I followed the link, but couldn’t find the book from my youth. Perhaps if I have more time. I can’t remember the plot, much, but it was a book on tape and I remember being disappointed because they didn’t use any of the show’s voice actors. It was very disconcerting to hear Soundwave talk in full sentences without a vodaphone.
Possibly one of the Kid Stuff titles?
Thank you. It was Storms of Destruction and I now realize that I’m so old I actually had not a book on tape, but a book on vinyl. Who knows it might still be mixed up among my Dad’s collection.
I know this is Ethan so I expect him to read Transformer books, but I wonder if for Amber’s sake he reads some My Little Pony or Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtle books.
Nice. Ethan will indeed be good for the kid. He’s the most normal of anyone around ….er on second thought, the kid is going to have a very interesting childhood.
Like this, but I’m surprised Amber’s choosing Transformers. Wouldn’t she prefer TMNT novels?
She just likes Ethan coming and reading stories, silly.
So, best audiobook idea ever! I would definitely play this for a kid:
The Beast Wars, as told by Waspinator.
“And then doggy-butt slagged Waspinator. Nobody came to salvage Waspinator. Nobody ever comes to salvage Waspinator. Why universe hate Waspinator?”
Somebody find Scott McNeil and make this happen!
I’m not talking about the same Swoop, but if only “my” Swoop would do something like that at an Eagles game!
…Why would Amber have Ethan read old Transformers kid books?
Mike to Ken: “When I was inside your mom she played me Mozart, too.”
…I couldn’t resist.
I’m surprised – nay, baffled – that it took this long. I was expecting the very first comment to be a mom joke. The wording just begs for it.
I guess Mike put a nickel in the nickelodeon…
…to hear Mozart! Mozart! Mozart!
On the bright side, studies show that it doesn’t matter WHAT you read to your kid. So long as you’re reading something they get more smarter.
… more smarter ….
Sometimes I have a small wish. A wish for an edit button.
It would be a great boon to those of us trying not seem like we were underexposed to reading as children. At least we have browser spill check.
Browser spill check? You spill your browser often, do you? Normally I refrain from commenting on typos, incorrect word usage, and the like, but I couldn’t let that one slide.
It’s not a parasite! It’s a member of Occupy Amber’s Womb!
Ha! I get it =D
I used to have that book. That same line brings me back, Swoop was awesome.
Other pansy transformers just launch a missile. Swoop throws the whole damn launcher!
Mom was pregnant with me during football season. Her greatest disappointment is that both me and my twin went to UF instead of Auburn…
Did I miss when Amber and Ethan started living together? I thought that Amber and Mike had the apartment across from Jakob.
Do you only hang out with people you live with? I know I have a telephone and a door.
This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…
This is the way of Dab.
This is the only person I can think of when someone mentions playing Mozart for babies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxd7W7q-THw
Ah yes, the literary giants of our time.
If you want to really mess with your kid, make him watch the Ultraman live action box set.
awww I’m going to do this if I get pregnant
Best bedtime story ever. ^_^
Also, Kevin/Ethan FTW.
MILD-MANNERED????!!! BLASPHEMPY!! You fail to see the true kickass emotion of the ONE TRUE SWOOP!!!!
Sorry! It’s canon!
