Redline!!!

A maple-bacon donut actually sounds really good right now.

Awesome! Nina is my kind of girl. Pity she's not real.

I really like the artwork Robin!

Was she racing with an electric?

My friends and I used to drop by Dunkin Donuts just after 2am because that's when they make the first batch of the day. Laughing

Nah, just something slightly less improbable. Wink

Yep, I thought that was one of the new Fiat 500s.

Loved the way it went all-hyper-real when Nina had to get her maple-bacon bars. Also, I guess that version has a pop-up blower for those occasions when you really have to have your doughnut fix.

Maple bacon bar?! Geez, if the car ride didn't do the salesman in, then that would. Wink

But hey, this comic all but summed up Redline succinctly: A well-drawn and harrowing zany race for a completely arbitrary & insignificant purpose.

Props to the massive uptick in art for this edition of the web comic. This is the bar by which all other editions will be measured, at least by me lol.

Oh my god I love this. Haha, I suppose it was only a matter of time...
Yes, massive props to the art. It looks great.
Also it's really hard for me not to crack up at the poor salesman's face going "pleeeeease" in the background of the 8th panel. xD

Nina truly earns the racing nickname "Sweet".

Pretty obvious what the reference was to.

Great art, faithful to the movie.

The improbably part being it has a manual gearshift.
