Two callbacks, one strip!
ok, seriously WHY do people still do this? It’s so pathetic
cause it annoys you…
haha so true! Here’s a Question: Why do people still complain about first? It’s pathetic!
I, too, and very annoyed at all the “first” backlash. The first post is a single post. Perhaps there is some jeering at a failed “first”. But the complainers have no limits. No checks and balances.
It’s like a plague upon this webcomic! Will they never cease? Have they no decency? WTF, are they trying to ruin it for the readers?
first time commenting ever!
Here, or anywere on any forum-like site?
So will Nate finally catch a break?
Speaking of Miranda, we ARE going to be seeing her again, right?
Seeing as the last time we saw her she was covered in lime Jell-o & had freshly butt-raped someone, I doubt it’s anytime in the near future.
But then again, there ARE worse things goin down with our friends in the meat department…
Maybe one day he’ll work up the courage to get his own lunch.
She can’t be gone for too long, as she’s still in the group picture.
Dude, what the fuck are you going to do now?! Are you fucking retarded?!
I have a feeling he is heading to the roof, where he always meets Rose.
I’d laugh if she wasn’t there. Though she most likely will be.
But that ladder must go to the roof of the Food Baron, not his apartment building.
No, it’s his apartment building, and Rose WILL be on the roof. I guarantee it. 😉
It’s about time he finally decided to go back on that damn roof and talk to her. I can’t wait till Monday and see the next strip.
Hopefully we can go back the actual storyline, now. Go back to Rose, Nate! Stop being a dick!
And in an epic twist of masochistic self hatred, Nate ends it all by jumping from the roof of the Food Baron, ending the comic and pissing everyone of handily.
Is he heading to the roof? This is what we’ve been waiting 2 weeks for! 🙂
Interesting angle in the 3rd panel, btw ^^
I have been waiting quite a lot longer than two weeks for him to finally go on the roof and talk to Rose. It has been months for me damn it! I do not envy the people whom have been waiting even longer.
Which loose end? I thought Miranda was a loose end, or at least I would consider her one. I suppose he means Rose, then?
So not first, but I am trying to figure out what Jimi is doing in the second panel.
Also, it’s been a while since I’ve seen your old art style. it’s definitely improved, but I do still enjoy the old simplicity.
taking utensils out of a wrapper…
Opening a set of plastic silverware. I know, terribly interesting.
Not gonna lie, I thought it was a crinkled-up pack of cigs lol. My eyez like to play gamez with meh…
I’m getting a Chasing Amy vibe…
Except in this case it’s Rose he’s chasing
And he’s not doing the chasing so much as she barges in his life like an angry Hulk, or lingerie clad Kool Aid Slut “Oh YEAH!”
An oddly kinky mental image… MMMMmmmm, lingerie and kool aid… Sweet, sticky, sexy.
Thought for the day: all that is sexy, usually ends sticky.
That is all.
You never know, opening a set of plastic silverware could be considered epic to someone somewhere in the world. Might even be a sport for those who like silverware.
But the question is, what will Nate do next? Another question could also be, what brand are the plastic silverware? Next Monday we’ll have a answer that much is for certain.
Awesome job Nick, thanks for the exceptional comic today.
“But the question is, what will Nate do next?”
Actually, I’m hoping it’s more “WHO will Nate do next?”
Two things: 1) Rose will be there and they get together again.
2) He´s going to jump off that roof.
1) Rose will be there on the roof.
2) They chat.
3) Rose: “It’s been nice knowing you, but you’re just sorta `treading ground’, and I want to do something with my life. I will be going to college next fall.”
4) Nate stares down from the roof.
5) The next story arc is an epilogue (3 years into the future). Nate moves to a new town that somehow looks like it could be in North Carolina. He goes looking for a job – swearing that his days in the grocery industry are a thing of the past. He checks out one grocery just as a fall back alternative. Meets a baldened version of Arne, who asks: “Can you start tomorrow?”
Attaboy, Nate. Go up there and at least make up with her.
To be honest, I’d much prefer if he did some “making out” instead. Well, I suppose that would require some of your suggestion first… Regardless! That girl deserves a bit of happiness. D:
Nicely done sir. Two flashback tie-in’s for the price of one. Now if Rose is absent, it could be “Deep Thoughts” Nate style.
he better be going to the roof and end up seeing rose. about time!
After the day Nate.s had, he could use some normalcy.
this is Rose we’re talking about. does “normal” really cover anything to do with her?
Normal for Nate anyway.
Nick, thank you for making three days of the week all smiles all times. Do I sense that this is more than just a story arc coming to a close?
– I agree… this strip gives a ‘closing the circle’ vibe to it.
2nd’d. Shit’s finally getting a bit serious again.
Ah, remainders: the awkward leftovers sometimes produced by division. We’ve seen Nate and Rose divided by the age of consent, Nate and Miranda divided by Tracy, and Tracy divided (and coming to grief) on Miranda’s random digits. She certainly felt the decimal point, there, and was lucky that Miranda didn’t take the operand! >:=)>
I suppose that, as loose ends go, Rose is pretty loose. She’s been hanging around Nate for a while, and still seems keen to hitch up with him. What knotty problems might Nate encounter on that roof if Rose is up there? (That wasn’t a rope bondage reference, by the way…………. all right, it is now.>:=)>
I agree with Jimi. Nate’s lucky to be alive after all this drama. And someone just brought him food. I’d be turning cartwheels!
I caught the fire escape callback without help, but I’d forgotten Miranda worked at the deli/lunch counter. What can I say, I read the first 200+ strips in a single evening…
Clearly the next strip should see him banging Aya on the roof.
…have I just started fanshipping a webcomic? What is this?
2nd LIKE HELL YEAH
i really like your comic its been a fun read.
Oh, great, now I’ve got the image of Rose as a lingerie-clad Kool-Aid slut stuck in my head. Why do I ever read the comments?
Now that that image is ingrained in my conscience, I am now forced to come up with something stupid to get it out.
On another note, what could be next? Who knows? Shh! Don’t spoil it. I want to make people squirm with it.
Quick! Everyone break out in disco fever!
And there is the stupidity. I was wondering when it would catch up.
The image is still there.
There are some thing in life you can’t un-see.
That’s one of them.
For everything else there’s meth.
Hey Man, long time reader, first time commenter.
Love the comic, and keep up the good work!
Tomorrow is the last day of my vacation, so I’m going to stay up late and try to be FIRST! again. But I’ll also try to post something a bit more original than that. 😉
