Wow, way to be self-sabotaging, there. (On the other hand, if she's genuinely self-aware about this, she's probably right to pull the plug now rather than string him along.)

but... I rather like all these characters - which one is he gonna follow? Because I can't see how this won't break up the whole group, I mean, they all live together and work together!

Heyla, Maeve

I think the fact that Dora handled it in this manner is even more likely to keep them functional with each other more than a later disintegration would. It is sad that it did not work out but that is life. I think Mr. JAcques can pull it off, though.

I agree with Hart - the fact that she's realised it's not working from HER end and broken up with him makes it more likely they can stay friends than if she'd pulled the same shit again and dumped her.


But to get back to being meta - it's brave of Jeff to do it, but it's not an out-of-the-blue Poochie moment. It has been building for some time, and is true to both characters. I can't think of a similar webcomic which has done something quite so bold (excepting perhaps the peerless Mr Allison completely changing his comic).

Oh good. This could have been dragged out into months worth of angsty storyline but I think he wrote what needed to be done in the best way possible. And I think everything will turn out ok, too.

How long ago do you suppose Dora moved in? I'd guess no more then 6 weeks or so.

Domi, I think it's brave because things have been going comfortably well for the author on the old track, I think that makes it hard to change it. Howling and gnashing of teeth in the fanbase!

I'm still not convinced this is the end of the Marten-Dora ship, though. We'll see.

so now that a while has passed since anyone posted in this thread...who else has been bored to tears with the way the comic is now

there are so many characters now that i cant keep up with who everyone is anymore, especially when some of them appear for 2 or 3 strips and then disappear for a month or so

martin has become a secondary character in it now too

bah! bah i say!

I can't figure out what Momo's saying in this one. Frown

"thethy" is the word holding me up, I think. Help?

I'm kinda weirded out by Momo looking human. I didn't really think I had an android prejudice, but since she started out looking toy-like and now looks human, it's just... odd. Maybe it's because she's out trying to get a job? Surely you need ID and a social security number to get a job?
