@sethtriggs: Hehe I too like it when hypocrites get read! Though in Jo's case, he's a lot more receptive than most hypocrites. If his friends call him out on something, he listens and at least makes the effort to change.
This was an awesome update
I love, love, love when hypocrites get read. And it's good that Jo is open to change too. I guess the 'predator became the prey.' Hope that his mind continues to be opened.
A Little Heart to Heart
Man, when Max makes an impact, she certainly makes an impact don't she?

In Roll To Save, I like to show that characters have a chance to realize their flaws and give them a chance to work on them. Though I know that in reality, not everyone jumps at trying to fix their own problems. Some can't or don't want to (We'll be going into that very soon in RTS!). I think it's fair to say that Jo isn't exactly the most tactful in the group. It's not that he doesn't mean well, it's just that everything else takes a back seat when it comes to the prospect of sex. He might have a mild case of what Cyril Figgis had in the first season of Archer. A very, very MILD case. Jo certainly isn't going to change overnight but now he's a little bit more conscious about ditching his friends in favor of his next sexual escapade.

I wanted to take the opportunity to showcase these two interacting with each other. Jo is a lawyer who aides in the judicial system, a system that's been put in place to help serve due process and keep things in order. While Roxanne actively loathes that very same system, a system she thinks is as flawed as a lot of the government is. Something she doesn't typically take laying down as shown in the "Red Light" picture piece in the gallery. Regardless, the two have a mutual respect for each other and have even found some common ground!

I was also partially inspired by the friendship between Alfred Nobel and Bertha von Suttner. Two very different people; one a war profiteer and the other an avid activist of peace. And despite their very different views on life, they became great friends. If your curious, the full story can be told in about 10 minutes by the infamous Mike Rowe.
@sethtriggs: I had a feeling you'd like this one! Hehe yes, I think it's safe to say that they're pretty much cuddle buddies at this point.

And there was just no way I was gonna have an LS/RTS crossover without sneaking in Jamie and Ellen somewhere! I really love how the final few panels draw a bit of a parallel between the four of them! X3
Eeee
That cuddle was so sweet, so wonderful! Iris is so cuddly.

And nice little update on Ellen and Jamie too. They're adorable as well.

What a wholesome update!
A Cuddly Resolution
Yea, those kids are gonna be alright. And it seems Jamie Halligan from Leftover Soup had been John's cooking teacher this whole time! For people who've read LS before, I did drop a tiny hint on strip #55. For those who haven't, Jamie is the main character of Tailsteak's comic Leftover Soup. He and his new wife Ellen were longtime roommates before they had realized there was a bit of attraction going on. Huh, I wonder if that sounds familliar...

This marks the end of The Incident arc so that means it marks the end of the over-indulgent crossover! Though I wouldn't be surprised if you see some familiar LS faces here and there...

The next arc follows the group as they get together for another round of Dungeons & Dragons so don't miss out!
@Jim Nickabocker: "Well, I mean she would have if it weren't for the fact this is an April Fools comic XD " Yeah, I got that XD
@maarvarq: But of coarse! The 'who' can mean singular or otherwise. Either way, Max is going to help him decide!

...Well, I mean she would have if it weren't for the fact this is an April Fools comic XD
E - All of the above
"Though she wouldn't completely take over until she resolves one of the most important questions in RTS. Who will John go out with??"
Given that Max is in a polyamourous relationship with 4 other people, I can't imagine that she'd want John to limit himself!
April Fools!
I just love the fact that both me and Tailsteak naturally accept that if she had the power, Max would totally single handedly take over the comic and make it 90% sexier. Though she wouldn't completely take over until she resolves one of the most important questions in RTS. Who will John go out with??

We'll be back with the actual final update of The Incident arc next Sunday XD
@Darkbunny: Yyyea, the gallery had a 'naughty bits' section. I actually took it down cause I got a little concerned when someone pointed out the 'Content Guidelines' for Smackjeeves. I'm gonna reach out to them and ask if there's anyway the gallery can work. If that doesn't follow through, I'll probably set up a free or a $1 Patreon so that folks can peruse those pics.
Firstly: Yes good.
Secondly: It's been a while, but I'd swear the gallery had more content last time I looked. Site weirdness, or did something get taken down?
@ZSnazzy: Poor boy never saw it coming XD
And then he died from too much affection. Rip in peace John 19xx-2018
@sethtriggs: Hehe just cause John isn't ready for a relationship yet, doesn't mean he can't find someone 'hot'!

I really love how Tailsteak did that panel. It really captured John and Iris perfectly I'd say!

One of my favorite lines in this arc XD

And you can't have a Max appearance without her patented facehugger hug!
@thaledison: I love "Go Get a Roomie!" and hey, I don't think that relationship dynamic is completely out of the question! =3
Shipping
To quote Tailsteak, "Poly means never having to have just one OTP." I'm hoping Sebastian, John, and Iris work out some sort of 3-way relationship kind of like Allan, Evelyn, and Steve from "Go Get a Roomie!".
Oh Max, don't ever change
This all was delightful and OMG John called Sebastian hot. So many things.

That embrace of Iris holding John made me melt. I really hope they will cuddle or something, because OMG. That looks so wonderful.

LOL "human megaphone."

Also LOL on Max doing the facehugger bit.
All's Well That Ends Well
It's going to take a lot more than a bit of naked misunderstanding to rock John and Iris' friendship, that's for sure. I'm really happy with how this arc turned out and it's been a complete honor and privilege to be able to bring back some memorable characters from Leftover Soup. To be given such an opportunity with some of your favorite characters is any fanboys dream and frankly, I'm still beside myself over the whole dang thing. Seriously, thank you Tailsteak for letting me essentially write my own little Avengers: Infinity War. You're the absolute best

When it comes to Max, hugs are very involved things. They sometimes include more than two limbs. They also sometimes include hugging a person's face to prevent them from saying certain magic words that'll have her let go. Needless to say, John and Max and great friends.

We've got one more update before the end of the current arc so stay tuned!
hopefully not over
@Peregrin: having invested some thought in Lily's worldview, i would very much like to see her get a chance to evolve.
