This is really continuing to bring things full circle to the first con ... only this time Kevin ends up with the otakin and Paola isn't the poor alley artist called upon to unmake reality.

So Kevin's girlfriend is insane?

I feel stupid for asking that. In the previous 2 comics, I thought she really was Miaka in disguise, but then I realized she just thinks she is.

Wow, that was a mixture of hilarious and a bit odd. Didn't expect that though, but Megan's eyes were yelling "Booya". I am not sure why, but that is how I saw it.

Paola and Nina still need to mind their own business. Nina had her chance, and as for Paola, well I'd think there would need to be an intervention if anyone started dating her!

All girls are crazy, this one is just a wee bit more so than most, and it's still the best that Kevin could ever hope for!

(As Nelson) HAW HAW!

Kevin's got a scrawny chest!

If he knew he'd end up in this situation, he could've at least done some work on his pecs and abs...

Okay in my 2nd novel, I have this nerdy character who also happens to be named Kevin (purely consindental), anyways he's a total nerd who gets teased in the story who decides to seek revenge against those that harmed him by joining Damien the villain(so he's an antagonist for much of the novel)... any ways, he's 16 and yet he has not reached prubity so he had the psyiyic of a 12 year old... So I think it's safe to say... that Kevin is more patheic than my Kevin... sad...

Side note to this: Kevin's love interest (who was introuded in my frist novel) happens to be named Nina... I wasn't think about the comic strip when I came up with the names, it just happened that way (and I came up with the names when the comic was new so it didn't matter)

Just as a comment on Fushugi Yuugi, does it ever get good? I'm borrowing the DVDs from my friend, who could only make it halfway through before giving up, and it seems pretty bad. I finished the first seven episodes. It's generic shoujo, there's no comedy, the lead is irritating in both languages, less on the dub because the voice is slightly deeper. On top of that, the art is terrible; backgrounds = what? Why does everyone love it so much? Are people who like all like the girl using Kevin, insane?

Can't help but think that the artist being asked to look at Kevin's non-existent chest is Robin's cameo appearance into her own comic. Smile

I loved the comic, as I always do. Very funny.

Kevin's permanent phase-out state is particularly amusing. Very Happy

"No chest"? Does that mean Kevin doesn't have a bone that covers his chest, creating a "hole-in-his-chest"/chest cavity? If so, that's pretty interesting, because that's how it is with me. I've even seen a swimmer with that kind of condition, so it has nothing to do with physical fitness! Or, if Kevin's chest condition IS just from malnourishment, well... makes more sense for his friends to get involved then.

Also, regarding the second panel... Nina and Paola should've bee hiding IN those cardboard boxes. Would've been a nice MGS reference, especially considering the announcement of two MGS titles this week at E3 (w00t!).

Keven's expression; lamb willingly to the slaughter, but does he want to be saved? Better happy together in hell, than lonely in heaven?

hate to know what references she's been given at places when asked to do commissions. Anime dazed Though his lack of chest, and stomach, is very common after partaking of the junk food con diet. There are alleys behind con centers filled with the malnourished and starved bodies of con goers. You can tell when it's in day 3 of a con....thats when they start eating the remains of each other.
