I wouldn't mind a bf who plays magic. I'm still looking for one who plays rpg to teach me tough =(
Damnit I wish I could have joined smackjeeves sooner if I knew that there were such awesome comics being produced here like this one.

This comic is as cool as having two fonzies strapped together with snakes.
In the second panel; it reminds me of Jacob's Ladder and the 'face shaking'. haha!

Why can't guys talk about this with girls?

Are we supposed to be afraid of shit and other unpretty not so proper things?

Pffft. You guys must know some sheltered bitches.

It is my secret shame that I went to see Episode I on opening night with a guy dressed exactly like that.

I just crossed my legs.
I've always wondered, now I know.
This is great. One page and I'm faving it. Swanky.

Your drawn art is great and I'd enjoy seeing more drawn strips in the future, but your photo art is genius and I'd cry if it weren't the mainstay of the strip. ...though I'm not sure how you would go about rendering a photo of a dumping oompaloompa. (eeeep) Good exercise in judgement going for line art on this one. :P

"Boners per second". Now THAT'S a useful unit of measurement. Kinda pisses me off that I spent so much time learning about the mole. I wonder if there's, like, an equivalent Avogadro's number of sperm or something.

As always, your comic is a charming peek into a disturbing alternate reality. It never fails to bring up things that I'm (mostly) glad you caused me to think about. (...mostly.)

That's absolutely hilarious. Fantastic man, Fantastic.

This stuff is funny. I have to say i'm a fan.
Why didn't anyone ask "why?"
Why is Paul Giamatti reading your letter in the bathroom?
Worth it
Yeah, this comic warrants an entire web page worth of original material. No really...
