Actually he's just doing this gig because blood bank jobs are hard to get.
THE CIRCLE IS NOW COMPLETE! NICK WILL NOW OFFER YOU THREE WISHES OF HIS CHOICE BECAUSE HE IS AWESOME.
As long as no one wishes for the TARDIS he gave me, I’m good.
Dr. Who reference = WIN.
Look under your chairs, everybody! TARDISES FOR EVERYONE!
But you can’t have David’s. It’s pink. Special order.
isnt the plural for Tardis…Tardis?…also Sweet I got a Tardis 😀
Hey, you missed me (either that, or the chameleon circuit is working so well I can’t spot the bloody thing).
It’s an acronym, so it gets pluralized like any other English word ending in “is”.
After much interwebbing, I too now agree with you…
TARDISes is the plural of TARDIS…
Sweet my very own TARDIS 🙂
TARDI would be “Time And Relative Dimensions In… … … ?!?!?! !!!!!!!!!1” which just leads to confusion.
I’d suggest Tardirs: Time And Relative Dimensions In Relatives Spaces.
You must be unaware of the new criteria for being first. Your comment must contain at least two coherent sentences pertaining to the comic.
FIRST AND YAS FINALLY
Please say yes
Wow, Les’s ex is back. I wonder if she’ll be a reoccurring character. First.
Given that she’s asking him out, it seems that she’ll be in a couple more, at least.
SECOND! Btw, nice comic so far man =)
So… is it just me or is she wearing an upside down Ankh around her neck?
Yes, indeed she is wearing the upside-down Ankh. If I am not mistaking, it’s the symbol of death. Befitting 😛
Lilith is also the Goddess of the Underworld.. appropriate much?
It also seems to be that if you take any religious symbol and turn it upside down, it becomes Satanic: pentagrams, crucifixes, and apparently even Christmas trees (that one surprised me – how the Hell do you get an upside-down Christmas tree?)
you obtain upside down christmas tree with the help of gorilla glue an duct tape, then set it on fire because everyone knows burning christmas trees are cooler then normal ones
er…actually an upside crucifix is the symbol for st. peter because he refused to be crucified the same way as christ..not really satanic in the least…though the upside down christmas tree is a new one i haven’t heard about…i’ll have to look that one up.
Perhaps I should rephrase: Some people believe that reversing any symbol makes it Satanic. The crucifix can be a symbol for St. Peter, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only meaning the symbol has – a lot of the “Satanic” symbols are just symbols taken from other believes and reversed or “corrupted”. In my experience, Satanists are either incredibly satirical (and quite intelligent about it) or just idiot kids (doesn’t matter how old they are – they can still be kids) trying to go against the “mainstream religions”.
At the art college I go to, there is a girl there that claims to be “Satanic” who wears upside-down crucifixes, pentagrams and yes, ankhs too, and if asked why, she says “Becasue it’s Satanic, and so am I.” She’s actually kind of a bitch…
That’s a pretty good assessment. I haven’t looked into it in a while, but I seem to recall there being a difference between the Satanists who actually claim to worship Satan and the Anton LaVey Satanists, who are basically humanists who don’t mind being jerks about it.
Hanging fir trees upside down goes back to the Middle Ages, when Europeans did it to represent the Trinity. But now, Christmas trees are shaped with the tip pointing to heaven, and some think an upside-down Christmas tree is disrespectful or sacrilegious.
I think they make the most festive video game spike trap. Especially when on fire and screaming. You mean they don’t scream? Well they should.
*Patents the band name Screaming Christmas Trees.*
Upsidedown Christmas tree is a Polish christmas tree. Very popular around Milwaukee WI.
Actually it’s not the symbol of death. The “Ankh” represents Life, Death, and Rebirth as well as eternal life. Reversing it does not reverse it’s meaning.
Damn I misses. I stayed up for this?
Lame (me too)
PF from TSC?
Dunno what TSC is, but I am Pink Freud from N9, RHPS, and I’ve been using Pink Freud on various BBS’s since 1990. I am not the first, but the only one I ever found who used the name before me was out on the west coast.
SECOND YES and cool les’ ex is back
YES! Bring Back Matlock!!
That was my hashtag for this update on Twitter.
I used to watch that show a LOT (on rereuns, I mean). I remember this one time Matlock pwnd these dudes who weren’t sure about hiring him (’cause he was old, y’know?). He just quoted a super-high retainer ($75,000, I think) and that was it; he was hired! Money rules all. 😉
BTW, second is best LOL, and I need to re read this comic again, there are too many characters i forgot about =(
Lilith? As in the first wife of adam?
Classic Nick, just classic.
Someone watches waaaaay too much anime….
Hey, Anime is better than most of the crap on tv now
You say that likes its a BAD thing.com
You, sir, need to check your sources.. Did you seriously think they were the first ones to take that name?
i was thinking about the demoness from Piers Anthony’s “Incarnations of Immortality” Seriously good read for any scifi-fantasy fans
I think he was going for more of a succubus vibe.
The return of Les! Also, love the detail on Lilith’s neck.
Dinner with the ex…a storm is coming this way
The plot thickens…?
First you gotta add some rosemary to it and a bit of butter.
It’s a good thing.
So THAT’S why my plots all turn out like crap.
IINTERESTING!! 😉 Great job on this comic. (THANKS!! Now my addiction be worse) lol!!
This comic makes me smile on several levels. From Les’s verbiage, being back in meats, and getting together with Lilith to the mime quip and the Matlock sweatshirt.
The fact Les was able to make a semi normal conversation and actually impress a woman at the same time is impressive in it’s own right.
But the last panel was kind of confusing though. Was it in reference that for once Les’s speech actually didn’t creep anyone out?
It’s a reference to the fact that she thinks they look like mimes. Pale faces, black clothes, etc.
Heh. Next she’ll be telling him: “No blood as lubricant!”
I think you’ve identified a gap in the market, there. I don’t know whether blood-look lube would sell well enough to make it a viable product, or whether it could be made non-staining or given an authentic taste, but it definitely holds possibilities.
Must….resist…urge…. to make… tacky…menstrual…joke….
Why bother to resist?
YEAAAAHHHH! Get yer menstruation lube here, half price during that time of the month!!!
Shoot, I was thinking along the lines of “If you want him to think he’s your first, not just another muffstuffer, prep yourself with HY Lube.”
hot goth chick….
Yess. But not my thing.
Yeah, I’m all about dark hair and fair skin but piercings just creep me out. Seriously…
That Jewish Dude is turned on by piercings. No idea why, but hi just finds them so sexy…
Meanwhile in the meat department.
Man, there really is someone for everyone, isn’t there? Especially if that someone has a history of poor decisions.
Great comic btw.
That blood bank comment gave me a nostalgia-flashback of that creepy guy who worked in the Santa Monica Med Clinic in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines dealing in the black market blood trade.
