"Potentially" NSFW? More like "Most likely" NSFW if you ask me...

It was a fun read with Nina's pseudo nerd rage and all, but... but...

Ah yes, the sheer chaos that is Robert Crumb. How many times I've received you at the library, I may never know. Working at the library in receiving, I imagine a lot.

Interesting new arc, thus far; always wanted to see what it would be like for Nina to go on the other side of the fence. Looking forward to what comes next.

Any chance those comics are based on real ones, because if they are I'd love to know them. Laughing

Oh Dear God!

That's an understatement.

Was the 'not drawing this' some kind of self protest or was someone egging you on? Temptation wins out in the end.


Hey! That's not supposed to be Janet Jackson is it?

Ha, even before actually reading the strip, my eyes glanced the ending and I went, "Oh dear lord!" I suppose this feeling will be mutual amongst readers.

Oh, gosh, that kills. I love it.

Nina's loud, annoying attitude is definitely reminiscent of a lot of fans at anime cons nowadays, though.

Well, it was definitely mutual for me. Laughing

I got a kick out of this strip.

Considering how big that censor bar is...

Disturbing

The mind reels at what may be next....

Nina annoyed me/pissed me off in this one.

I hate it when people insult anime/manga out loud in front of me just 'because I like it and what Nina did was basically that, but not about anime/manga.

I hate fans like that. It's like "Yeah, they don't like it, don't castrate them for it, geez."

=u= hmm~ is that the taste of some other region's of indie comic artists? where I live Unicorns and drugs were a popular subject to draw... but i never actually went to an indie comic convention i've just hung out with the artists... maybe what they draw in free time is different then what they self publish. xD

Oooo. Wow.

The last thing I ever expected is clicking on a Nina strip and getting a blast of Crumb/Pekar-esque weirdness.

All I have to say is: TOTALLY AWESOME! (and totally gross) --Way to go Robin!!!

Welcome to the underground, Nina. Try to restrain yourself....

If this strip is even based, just a little on real life, I'm never, ever, ever going to one of these cons. * dissipates into nothingness Final Fantasy KO'd style*

xDDD Great strip! This reminded me of how a lot of new anime/manga fans are, being all loud and such when they begin to watch/read an anime they think is going to be good but in reality [to them] it's not.

And the last strip... Oh God that was bad. But funny. Kudos to you, Robin.

*crawls into a hole and dies from the last panel*
