[ps SEXY CATSUITS are they rubber? I bet they're rubber]
But do they have sex-nipples?
not that i see. and believe me, i’m looking.
Everyone has sex-nipples under their clothes.
Sex-nipples is going to enter my daily lexicon.
OMG WHAT HAVE I DONE? :O
What you intended all along … creating more fetish-fuel for the youth of the internet!
Well in that case… I’m happy then.
I prefer to use the words vernacular and diction personally. IT’s more fun.
“Lexicon” has an X in it. Words with Xs in them make me think of sex.
Lexicon is fetishing underage superman villians.
This is the best defense I’ve ever seen used in debate.
And diction is what Leslie does.
Thus, a sensible man possesses both a Lexicon and a Sexicon, to cover all their bases. Also, perhaps a Texicon, for those words pertaining to Texas and Texans contained therein.
I’m sure Robin always remembers to turn on the headlights.
at least from that point he can meet the normal friends, i guess
if you’re into that thing…
Are you trying to imply that ANYONE in this comic is normal?
Leslie’s probably closest to normal. And she’d currently wearing a catsuit and grabbing the poor guy’s knees.
Not that I’d mind having catsuit wearing lesbians tackle me, but I imagine it isn’t Manny’s cup of tea.
Robin’s not a lesbian. She’s straight with an exception.
That’s even better.
With at least two exceptions. At that point it starts to slide into bisexuality.
The opposite of an exception is an inception.
Lesbian Inception sounds like a porno spoof. The zero gravity scene would be interesting.
For no reason I read that as inquistion.
No body expects the Lesbian Inquistion!
But oh, how they wish for it.
Our greatest weapon is fear– and surprise– wait–
…I’ll come in again.
Maybe Ethan is like Mike and has a secret second life where everybody is normal.
Sexmasters would make an awesome band name.
Please, there are probably 50 of them practicing in their garage all over the country.
Combine any word with “master” increases its awesomeness. Let us not forget Ro0bin’s forgotten dream to become Mrs. Killmaster.
So the word “mastermaster” will implode into a singularity of awesomeness, then.
Sexmasters makes me think, for some strange reason based on word association, of a new line of transformers …… 0.0 ….. Pass the mind bleach please before plasma says something.
We already had Sexmasters, but Japan went with the name: Kiss Players.
Band names are so overplayed. TUMBLRS! That’s where the real money is at now.
I’m sort of scared to check to see if it actually exists though….
From rule 34, it follows that it does exist. The 404 page though says it doesn’t. But raccoonsexdungeon.tumblr.com does, so for sexmasters, it might change, too.
This was the only acceptable outcome, really.
What does the “O” on their catsuits stand for?
“OMG I cannot believe that I’m wearing this”
I bet it’s a call out to Girly by JoshL.
Probably the zipper grabber.
As for realism, when I worked for a certain company, catsuits were often flagged as prohibited “adult” items because you can see certain details through them. Particularly true if they aren’t black.
One needs to ask where in Walmart Robin found one, let alone two. The only ones they could possibly have are the fishing waders version.
Pretty sure she had them on her already, without having to leave the hospital that they’re still at, waiting for the MikeSpawn to get off the bus.
Why did Robin have a pair of catsuits? Why wouldn’t Robin have a pair of catsuits?
In the prostitute aisle. Duh.
“Oh hey! Look at my boobs!”
“Crazy woman on my back, I see you found my slipped disc.”
ya know…this is how most of Robins plans seem to turn out
They know each other already:) (I mean know each other-know each other I know they’ve already been introduced) I love how Robin just apparently has sexy catsuits she carries around with her. Either that or they sell them in the hospital gift shop.
hey, I never leave home without a sexy catsuit (perhaps several if my buddies are along)
What makes you think she had them with her? She probably just ran home, got them, and ran back.
Everyone knows that a woman’s purse is a bag of infinite holding.
Huh, a first name basis already? Curiouser and curiouser.
Well, they’ve met before.
But the way they say “hi” to one another, it does make it seem like it’s not a surprise and they’ve been hanging around for some time, and we as readers had no idea.
Oh, Willis, the things you do…
Ha. And I take it the plot twist is that he’s already seeing Manny.
Love the first two lines of dialog. I get the distinct impression that Leslie was genuinely surprised to look down and see a catsuit. When you’ve dated a woman with super speed you get used to stuff like that.
“Hey, Robin, you realize that being broken up means you can’t just undress me whenever you feel like it anymore, right?”
I suspect Robin’s an equal-opportunity costumer when the need arises.
The catsuits just made my day.
Yay for Arkham City influence.
Man, how come I’M never claimed by Sexmasters.
Well, except for that one time, but it definitely wasn’t by women in cat suits, I can tell you that right now.
Man, you too? I guess there’s like, multiple charters of Sexmasters, like some sinister Global Sex Cabal.
Yea, it’s a franchise, like Curves, one in every town. A sexy, sexy franchise.
I thought faz and Wen were the only Sexmasters
If the Sexmasters are superheroes, I bet Faz and Wen are their archenemies.
Those two make sex infinitely less appealing.
They’re the Nega Sexmasters
I actually laughed out loud at the end there.
Robin needs to be tased.
You think that would do any good?
I’m really tired, so I first read “Robin needs to be teased.” and then “Robin needs to be tasted.” before finally hitting on the actual spelling.
P.S. Thank you, spellcheck and your little red lines, for making my post readable.
Teased, no, because she would be oblivious to it.
I have the feeling that “Sexmasters” will be the next line of Transformers toys.
It’s a spin of of Kiss Players, but you can only buy it from specialty stores, and it’s banned in most countries.
I just hope the human females they need ain’t jailbait this time.
I thought Kiss Players was banned from most Countries too, or was that the Fandom?
I think it was the fandom – the fandom was banned from most countries.
You can BAN a fandom?! Please tell me there’s a way we can apply this to Twilight.
A little late for that.
Twilight fandom has already gone mainstream.
I notice that there’s a “Sexmasters” tag. Makes me think that there may be more comics where Robin tries to abduct random guys to make them screw Ethan.
Doesn’t seem out of place in this comic. We’ve got Amazi-Girl, Spider-Car, and I-Knew-That-Before-Everyone-Else-Man. The Sexmasters are the prefect way to round out the Justice League of Shortpacked.
“Halt evil-doer! I saw you steal that Elmo doll! Now I will forcibly introduce you to my gay friend Ethan!”
The Shortpacked Justice League would be the best thing ever.
You forgot Spidercar
Reading is FUN-damental!
Is this whole thing a Catseye reference?
Oh my God an Amalgam Comics reference??!!
Someone else does remember!
You just made my day!
I just did another “old people thing” didn’t I?
“Remember straw boater hats and saddle shoes? Those were the days. And we had real egg cremes back then! And the street lights were gas! “
Do you remember when the DC and Marvel continuities merged as part of a massive crossover event? Peprige Farms remembers.
I want to go to SDCC one year and in the DC Q&A ask “Which one of the new DC 52 Universes is the Amalgam Universe?” just to see how many blank looks I get from the DC staff on stage.
But…the Amalgam Universe isn’t its own universe. It’s a merging of Earth-1 (New Earth?) and Earth-616.
I know, but now that DC has all these universes floating around they could actually make one of them the Amalgam universe proper.
But that would defeat the point…
Why, I remember when all we had were wood burning cats.
“the streetlights were gas”. You would have to be over one hundred years old, then! Early arc lamps came out in the nineteen hundreds; tungsten incandescent lamps in the twenties, and forties; vapor lamps in the fifties; so-called “solid-state” lamps in the 2010s.
(But who’s counting?)
…The counted the missing, one upon one!
None upon none!
And the hijinks were over before they begun!–apologies to the Monkees
I do love that in panel 4 Manny’s primary concern seems to be that he’s dropped his labcoat.
I’m sure someone has thought of this, but what are the odds that Mike and Ambers kid is powered?
genetically speaking it’s probably 50% but that’s not assuming Alien powers are a dominant or recessive gene.
Oh wow, really? I assumed it was more like Skin Pigmentation where they could pretty much turn out anywhere on a sliding gradient than eye colour where they’d probably just get one of their parent’s eyes assuming they don’t both pass down a recessive gene,
Well, considering 50% would likely be the average of a realistic probability spread and I can’t see the esteemed Mr. Willis sitting down and actually creating a realistic probability spread just for that… well, unless he intends to eventually segue into something new featuring the kids of 128
I was thinking more along the lines of PS238 (kudos to Aaron Williams)
what are the odds that the baby is shiny?
Since they both speak English, the chance is 1/8192, or roughly 0.01220703125%
I figure a 70% chance of Super Strength, and an 80% chance of being Immune to Criticism.
That’s clower to the 90th percentile actually since both her parents have that dominant trait.
*closer and obviously i ment the immunity to criticism.
Though that can mean recessive traits become more common if I recall correctly? I e a weakness to criticism.
You I like I have been asking for months XD
Oh, you crazy sexmasters! XD
This might work out for both couples involved.
Good I love that last panel XD
Man, your avatar never ceases to freak me out. In the cutest possible way.
My guess? Ethan and Manny were already friends off-screen for a while before this strip
I am with you on that one man
Makes sense. We rarely see anyone’s social life if it involves folks outside the store.
Manny has got to be the most laid back individual I’ve ever seen. He has 2 sexmasters on his back, and he notices that Ethan found an Alfred!
Priorities, man, priorities. A toy collector keeps the eye on the prize!
He’s also gay, that probably helps with the ignoring women in leather.
I wonder if Alred is really the first thing Manny noticed when he looked up?
Manny is unflappable.
I like that.
Ethan can dress him up like Agent Coulson and have fun watching him not be flapped by things.
*starts weeping openly about Agent Coulson*
WHY WOULD YOU MENTION HIM?
TOO SOON! IT’LL ALWAYS BE TOO SOON!
Curse you, Fury!
BWAHAHA! Had not seen that before. Thanks for sharing!
Shh…shh… Coulson lives, honey, Coulson lives.
Or, at least, that’s the reality I’ll be laboring under. Fury is a lying prick who lies like a lying dog lying on a rug, and his secrets have secrets. There’s enough wiggle room to make it work (the cards as a lie being brought up at all, Fury being the one to say “the medics called it,” that big whatever-thing the medics are messing with when they get to Coulson. And if you watch that ending scene, there’s this guy who walks up the catwalk to Fury and hands Agent Hill a file as they pass each other. A slightly-balding man in a suit who’s too far away/fuzzy to make out properly…)
Of course, this could all be the delusion of a fan who’s sat through one too many Joss Whedon deaths, but until I find out otherwise (and probably even then)…Schrödinger’s Coulson!
Dude. I’m sorry to say, Coulson is as dead as Wash was.
I know, it’s hard, but you just have to accept it. It was never going to work with out someone to Avenge.
Yup, they had someone to avenge. Hence the whole “let me go grab Coulson’s cards out of his locker and wipe some blood on them” lie.
Him not actually being dead doesn’t change that. If anything, it adds more conflict to a potential sequel. The Avengers already don’t trust Fury (with the exception of Black Widow and Hawkeye). Finding out that he lied about Coulson could easily be what sparks them to sever any ties with SHIELD.
this comic was perfect.
Oh look. Ethan showed up before the baby popped out and hasn’t irreparably harmed his friend and his friendship with his horrible deviant toy-collecting ways.
Cool. Cool cool cool.
Meanwhile, Amber had her baby offscreen
Does that mean Robin and Leslie’s apparent “get Ethan a boyfriend” addiction is just as terrible as his toy addiction?
Meanwhile, Mike decided not to come because there was a show he wanted to watch. But Uncle Faz could make it, and will be the first thing Amber’s kid will see upon birth.
She will probably try to climb back in.
Ha ha, I thought of that later. “Where the hell were you guys??” “Oh, um… right here? See, Robin couldn’t find the bathroom, and then, uh, then we ran into Ethan, and then we came back. Hi!”
“Also we put on catsuits for some reason I’ll think of later.”
I only saw the top half of panel 1 before scrolling down, so I read it as:
Robin: “‘Cuz we’re fuckin’ rad, that’s why!”
Leslie: “I’m pretty okay without that last part.”
As in “I’m okay with just fucking.”
I don’t know if it’s sad or awesome that it makes just as much sense that way.
Also, last panel is begging 4chan for a crudely drawn penis between Ethan’s crotch and Manny’s mouth. (Or vice versa. I mean, we’re talking 4chan.)
Dude’s in good shape.
I’m guessing after the last time Manny got tackled by Ethan’s friends at the comedy club, he’s spent a bit of time working out.
What a shame that the sight of Leslie and Robin in sexy catsuits is wasted on these two
If I didn’t know any better I would think Ethan had a personal life that he was able to keep secret, or at least quiet about to his Nosiest-of-Nosy friends…
Though Amber probably knew already.
“Gettin’ dudes together an’ watchin’ them touch weiners.”
This has likely been brought up before, but a woman into watching gay dudes together is a much rarer thing than a man interested in seeing two women together, right? And much rarer is it?
A cursory evaluation of Mega Man X fandom suggests that it is not particularly rare at all, actually.
Also Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, and much much more.
The yaoi genre is primarily aimed at women, so…probably not. I imagine it’s a lot like “women enjoy sex” – culturally we’re not supposed to talk about it, so a lot of people assume it isn’t true.
What we like to see as humans often differs from what we like to do, and two men has the advantage of double eye candy. Not my personal thing, but I know many who disagree. *smile*
And supposedly, people who read comics, and gamers, are kinda minorities too, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a lot of them.
Speaking as someone who’s been in slash fandom since she was a teenager, no, it’s not especially rare or strange. One guy is hot, two guys are hotter; it’s easy math. There may be comparatively fewer women willing to *talk* about being interested, since our society is so screwed up about female sexuality, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
Sometimes you gotta pay attention to the Internet, man.
Dude, why wouldn’t women be just as into two guys?
Man, if I had a nickel for every time girls in catsuits tried tackling me and told me I’ve been claimed by the Sexmasters…well, I’d have 4 nickels.
I salute you sir
can these be the new work uniforms for robin and leslie?
when is manny going to quit his job as hospital optometrist and start working at the toy store?
Sounds like a sure pay raise to me, and an excellent use of a medical degree.
That last sentence made me laugh harder than the comic itself. Working at the store seems to be the only way to ensure you’ll last in this comic. Hell, Leslie ended up there eventually.
No!NO! this needs to be the outfits of the next statue! a 2 pack of Sexmasters! Please Mr.Willis!?!?
The real question, Leslie, is why aren’t you always wearing catsuits?
ahahahaha watchin them touch weiners
This is a perfect comic which, like the Avengers Movie, makes it hard to choose a best bit. The Catsuits? The Questioning the Catsuits? The Answer? L&R being so close? That Lesile is playing along so completely with Robin, or at all? “Sexmasters!”? The cheesy lines? “SEXMASTERS”?! The shocking revelation? The last line?
Mrs.Peel, You’re needed.
Notice how Leslie had the outfit on and adjusted to fit BEFORE asking why she was wearing it.
My assumption is that Robin is the one that put it on her, faster than she could notice.
Perhaps said suit has intelligent fabric which automatically tailors itself to the wearer? Yeah, that’s the ticket!
I have to make this joke I’m sorry for the lameness. Transformers Sexmasters!
You mean lateness.
Sexmasters sounds like an organization for people to improve their public sex skills.
I completely misread that as “pubic sex skills”. XD
They actually already have a program like that. It’s called kegel exercises.
Now I totally want to see Patrick Cox from Tax Masters standing off to the side being like “Hullo! I’m Patrick Cox from Sex Masters. Are you having trouble getting dates? Are you sexually repressed person with a geek hobby? We here at Sex Masters can help!”
I dunno. It’s what I thought of.
This is the greatest Shortpacked! ever.
I get the feeling Ethan already knew Manny worked at the hospital.
/allpurposeguru ships Leslie and Robin again…
something tells me maybe ethan and manny have been a couple on the side .espicilly if he is willing to claim robin and leslie tackling him dressed in cat suits.
This relationship can’t have gone too far without Leslie, Ethan’s co-worker and landlady, being aware of it.
Nicely done, in that I didn’t see the twist coming at all. I figured there was *a* twist, but didn’t think it would involve Ethan being on top of things in any way.
Now, I’ll be REALLY embarrassed if it turns out that the Alfred is FOR Manny. It’s ambiguous right now: “I see you’ve found an Alfred! I know how important that was to you, as you’ve been talking about it for weeks.” / “You found me an Alfred! Thanks, you’re a true friend with possible future benefits!” I’d still think that waiting around for it was the wrong call, but if it’s for someone else that’s at least a case of compassion vs. compassion.
This is more relevant to the previous strip, but it’s touching to see how eager Robin is to re-create her glory days with Les. She may be slipping into her usual act of steamrolling ahead and letting Les try to keep up, and really there’s no reason she COULDN’T have made the “Sexmaster” a one-woman show. But when Les agrees to help her, it’s a joyous occasion.
“You found me an Alfred! Thanks, you’re a true friend with possible future benefits!” That is exactly how I want the next part of this conversation to go. In a perfect world everyone would talk like Anya from BTVS and life would be so much easier.
“didn’t think it would involve Ethan being on top of things in any way.”
In a double twist, it may involve Ethan being on top of things in several ways.
Why did Robin have catsuits with her?
You mean you don’t keep spare catsuits on you at all times in case you randomly need one with no reason to believe you would?
Robin can run really really fast, remeber? SHe didn’t had it with her. She fetched them, and then stripped Leslie and dressed her in less than a second without breaking her fingers.
I’m surprised he recognized Manny so quickly – doesn’t he still think he’s a prostitute?
They pretty clearly have been hanging out.
He recognized him instantly from that angle.
That first panel is probably my favorite panel on this strip in over a year. Well done.
Why doesn’t the “Wen” strip have a “sexmasters” tag? XD
Shouldn’t Leslie be drooling that Robin’s in leather.
XD I think this is my favourite Shortpacked strip ever.
He bought it anyway! And how ever does Manny see the toy is “an Alfred” when he is being sat upon, is bent over, and has a crazy lady around his legs?
