Sandra's work buddy and her ex show up at her apartment. They pass the time talking about mutual friends.

(NSFW) Where is Sandra? )

Yeah, she doesn't know either.

Katie Cook has been doing a webcomic about her little monster character Gronk for a year, & I hadn't really noticed.


It doesn't happen often, but sometimes TV Tropes leads one to a cool new thing.

That's badass.
She's like a five-year-old girl made of snakes!

OK, new comic to follow.

[eta: I mean, I can follow, that is read, this comic now, not that there's a comic coming up--oh, never mind]

Our reality actually gets rebooted quite a bit, but nobody checks the logs.

Yes, I hotlinked this for the alt-text.

Good grief I am so glad to see this strip today.

So "Hitchens" is a substitute for "Hell"? Well, that was provocative enough for me to post this panel.

Reading on, I guess the writer intends readers to find the Ceres anarchists sympathetic, but he's doing a pretty good job of making me not like them. The apparently "contemptible" protagonist is an idealistic civil servant, the anarchists are jerks & snobs. I was maybe 35 pages in when it hit me that maybe I'm actually supposed to automatically hate him because he's French.

Yeah, by page 40, I could see where the tract was going. No thanks.

Today's xkcd is just about perfect.

Tom & Jerry: the lost episodes

This makes a disturbing kind of sense, given the bizarre shift in approach with the later Hanna-Barbera toons.
This was a banner on questionable

Well, I looked anyway.
OK, not too bad, & if the art is a bit--well, gag webcomic art--remember that QC & Dresden Codak started out pretty rough too. But as I noticed when looking through old QC strips & clicking links in the page text, a lot of these strips die. Now I'm thinking, "And this will die too." But it might take a few years. Why am I doing this? Why can't I enjoy it in the moment? And it's already doing better than Angel of St Thomas, right?

Besides, the writer's name is Carl Sjostrand, which I think means "(Common)Man Seacoast." Swedish name makes me smile.
Hoo boy, lot of drama on the Serious Pony Discussion Forum about today's QC. I expect it to continue, given that QC is freakin' huge in the webcomics world. My reaction was, Oh crap here it comes, but y'know, sometimes drama happens in this strip. It's not all indie music snark, & hasn't been for a very long time Hanners being adorkable.

Let's be clear here. Dora is not perfect. None of the characters are, Jeph has pointed this out. He has no Mary Sues. Yes, Dora seems hypocritical given she flirts inappropriately with all Marten's friends including Faye.

But that's the thing. Raunchy bi Dora is a pose alternate mode to some degree, & the insecure monogamous girl underneath knows she's playing. She also knows that Marten is cautious & serious. He doesn't joke flirt or cuddle their friends. He was embarrassed to innocently touch Hanners' boob that one time. So when Dora sees something like yesterday's strip, she has reason to fear that things are real & she's in trouble.

Also, she's a hypocrite. Little bit. We've had inklings before.
Looking at a few old QC strips.

...that's a surprising coincidence.

Also, wow, a lot of linked sites from that era are just...gone.

Hey, look! Deathmøle gets its name! Say, now that poser girl is gone, can Marten & Amir rename the band 15 Year Anthem or something?

Man, Hanners had some haggard under-eye bags back around #556. Or is that just from the dust? No, wait, she'd been awake for days. I guess she still has them, though, they're just drawn different. Still, it's neat to see that cartoony big-bottomed style from back then again. Cute. Also, the link in #556 is bizarre.

I love this. It subtly indicates how good a racer Ash is.
So Finder is a webcomic now? And apparently going for an uninked look. I used to read Finder back in the day, I may check it out.
