Okay. I’m dropping this comic due to that last frame. It’s just not my brand of humor. I’ll miss Vice, Luna, and the gang and their wonderful misadventures, but I need to nope out for now.

Oh man... this is just hilarious... I haven't seen the Shape of Water but I'm going to guess the monster eats a cat at one point...

Thumbs up for RinHaru.

Also, the monster-in-a-tank thing just always reminds me of Ergo Proxy... I don't know if I'd be able to take The Shape of Water seriously...

The best part of this is honestly Rin's Mildly Concerned Faces in every panel

Not changing the other Shape of Water characters to Free! characters was a bit of a waste, honestly.

I didn't think V&L would make such an immediate connection between The Shape of Water and Free--

Especially since most people I'd heard who'd seen TSoW thought it just looked too much like "Splash":

(Granted, Daryl Hannah was better-looking.) Laughing

wow that Sharkbait, best.

It sounded like a good AU for them, would read it in full.

Did the shape of water have a scene where a cat was eaten this way, or was it just Vice taking things up to the extreme?

It's a scene in the film, yeah.

Will be disappointed if this will not be what happens.

I got really hung up on the first sentence of this in that I saw the punctuation mark after "Free" and read it as two--that is, I saw it as "Oh yeah, isn't free!" and "Season 3 coming out real soon?" and thought that this is really weird grammar for both sentences.

But that's just the occupational hazard for any title consisting of one very commonly-encountered word. Plenty of similar stuff happened with me and It last year.
