Dr. Schtein was sort of a butthole at age 17.
Oh, who am I kidding, he is still a butthole.
I love that he memorizes that poetry. ^ ^ and doesnt bother helping him move stuff
Well, it’s important. How else is he supposed to hit on ladies?
He only ultimately got around to memorizing one passage of french poetry… that’s why he said it to Deliah over the phone.
Ah yes. The “seventeen sideburns” I remember those. Wasn’t that long ago for me, actually.
Cooincidentally, what DOES twigs heart?
“Just kidding. It was just one spider.” Yes. One HUGE spider. Hahaha whatta dick.
Oh man, I love Laurence’s mohawk. But that might just be because I love mohawks in general.
Also, great job with the page layout. It works really well!
Thanks! I was worried it might be confusing.
Holy crap, he looks just like my best friend did at 17.
This page makes me happy when skys are grey~
“Jesus, look at me go.”
I think this line perfectly encapsulates what an asshole he was/is.
Do seventeen year olds actually say “butthole”? I remember them being overall swearier! I’m practically fuckin’ ancient though, so what do I know.
Laurence is much older than that on this page, he’s like 24, I think. It’s Dr. Schtein who’s 17.
Man, I’m 28 and I call people buttholes all the time. Oh no, I’m immature, maybe! :D
Ah, sorry. Haha, I dunno, not like stronger language is actually terribly mature either! (I tend to mix swear levels myself, e.g. “darn, that’s just fucking cruddy”.)
hahah, that’s awesome. I do that a bit, as well. Sometimes the softer words are just funnier.
twigs is that guy without an eye earlier right?
Yes. Here he has two eyes and the opposite hair that he normally does!
Infinite upvotes for opposite hair. ^^^^^^
Oohhh lordy, I am reading this in the middle of the night in a pitch black room, that tarantula was not a welcome sight. From the quick glance I gave it though, the anatomy seemed pretty spot on, I’m guessing you pulled up references for that! I’ve no idea how you react to spiders of course, but the idea alone sends shivers up my spine. I’ve got a lot of respect for the amount of research you do, especially when it gets unpleasant!
I like lookin’ at pictures of spiders! Actually, I’m quite fascinated by arachnids in general.
I should have had him putting a vinegaroon on him, come to think of it. If you’re not familiar with them, they look pretty terrifying.
But they don’t bite or sting.
OH GOSH VINEGAROONS TnT
I don’t care if they don’t bite. They are horrible.
I can think of few things on Earth that, based solely on appearance, I would want to kill more than that.
…. Is it weird that I just think that’s cute? :/
… Cause I do…
I’m digging the polaroid & older camera photograph frames on the last few panels. Also, is the blur over Janet’s name because at the time Stein didn’t care about learning Laurence’s sister’s name, or are you trying to be a sneaky person?
the first guess. He’s so bad at names. And realizing that two people might be the same person.
Makes me wonder if, when he finally meets up with Twigs again, he’ll realize it’s his college roommate. Probably not.
As a college kid, I deal with douche-bags every day. Not all of them are this oddly-likable. In fact, I’d say 98% of them aren’t. Would you please write my classmates, Becky? They’d still be ‘buttholes,’ but at least they’d be interesting buttholes.
He remembers his ex wife’s name, just not Laurence’s little sister’s name.
No, she means that Schtein never realized that he was marrying Laurence’s sister…because he never paid enough attention to meet her back when he was in college.
Which explains why their relationship lasted a whole two months XD
Hey! I’m new. I have followed this comic for about three days now! :D Go me! I just want to fall at your feet in admirance, Beckey, as you are superb. FEEL THE LOVE, MAN. And, I will be the first to admit this, but MAN. Herville was one sexy thing when he was 17. I’ll just have to live with the nose, though. You rock!
:D <- My happy face urging you to update spontaneously! Like now!
God, I can’t believe how much detail you put into each page!
I love it how in the first panel there’s a picture of Lawrences’ family with a piece of tape over his fathers (or so i assume) face!
I love that subtle perspective on sleeping Twigs in the first panel.
And how the photos are all burned up and gnawed on.
Oh dear, why do I actually find 17 year old Schtein kind of attractive?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME? D:
Young Schtein may be a butthole, but a CUTE butthole.
Twig, your roommate is a massive tool, so you try to hook him up with your sister? You’re a bad big bro.
Also, loving the little details like hiding of the face of Laurence’s dad’s face in panel 1 with… what is that?
Laurence is a punk rock princess.
BEATRIX! HER NAME IS BEATRIX KIDDO!
….French poetry XD
Well, it did turn out to be important, didn’t it? Just didn’t get used in quite the situation he had in mind, I think :P
Poor twigs, well, now we know why schtein got such bad karma and hairstyle. And if schtein thought this was being best buddie I wonder what he done that pissed the now not so evil idea thief who’s name I do not remember
Her name is Janet. I can see a J in the beginning of the blur and a nt in the end of it
“Have you met my sister (Janet?) yet? ‘Cause she’s about your age and I was thinking that I really owe her for that time she ratted me out to the cops. Take her out to the movies, eh?”
The Doc, he’s got the Selective Memories, hasn’t he?
Oh my god, fifth(ish?) panel: SO SEXY.
Man, Schtein. you really did start graying early. Lookit your little cute white patch awww who could hate a graying guy like you.
Oh yeah, everyone you meet
FUGGIN’ SPIDERS. If that were me, that spider would be so far up Docs’ nose he would have it as a permanent organ C:
There’s plenty of room for it up there…
