Leopold amuses me, for whatever reason.
Leopold amuses me, too. I laughed at his reaction.
Nope… I totally think it was a “I’ll put you out of your misery if you like sir… I can always reintigrate you later after Dani has mellowed a touch and is distracted by some shiney bauble” statement.
Leopold is there to protect Dani, he can’t zap her or even aoffer to, but he can help Dave, and is probably authorized to zap Dave at Dave’s request, or perhaps duty bound to obey Dave if Dave does command him to “Shoooot me now!!! Shoot me Nowww!!!” followed by an sudden disintigration, the glasses and ashes floating in midair long enough to add “You’re DISSSSSSSSPICABLE!!!” to Dani and Leo before collapsing to the floor in a neat little pile.
Assisted suicide? I guess he’s being forced to choose which is worse to endure: humiliation, or physical pain? Add to that the heartbreak he’s bound to feel soon…
(If you’re right and David really does get forced into dating Juno, then that can only mean that this impending thing with Angie is destined for failure…) Man, it must really suck to be him.
And you must really love Duck Dodgers lol. Oh, and props for knowing the Phoenix Gate incantation. *applause*
I assume instant-disintigration would be rather painless. And if he can be brought back (comics-universe, after all), well…
I love Leopold… he reminds me oddly of Butler from the Artemis Fowl series, though admittedly only in a very general way. (That offer of his was worthy of Eoin Colfer’s wit.)
Wonderful job! ^.^
Is Leopold offering to blast her for being bratty?
I think that he’s offering to off David to spare him more embarrassment.
That’s kinda like adding insult to injury, no? On top of the embarrassment he must endure, he also gets reduced to a pile of smoking ashes, which I’m pretty sure must involve a fair amount of pain… No, I think Anonymous was right. Looks like even Leo found that a bit annoying. (Though he was just kidding, of course.)
Seriously? I can’t believe you did that with Dani! LOL.
And I concur, Leopold is very amusing. For whatever reason.
I think Leopold amuses you because Leopold is awesome. And hilarious. Hilariously awesome!
Angie having no powers? she has the ultra amazing lawyer sense and the ability to teleport herself as fast as super-humanly possible to anywhere a proffitable law case can arise! if that’s not an awesome superpower i don’t know which one will
About david well, he appears to be soft and easy to control, yet he’s more than meets the eye, there must be a reason why he didn’t take up the “family business” with a power suit or a meta-human inducing alien tech ray, despite the heavy family pressure, in the end he’ll do whatever he feels like, i think they would make a good couple indeed
Leopold looks so happy when he’s ready to disintegrate someone. Can I borrow him for work one day?
I really don’t think David and Angela would make a good couple,Her personality is too strong.I mean look at the control she already exercises over him just imagine if they were actually together.A good relationship needs some give and take.
Unfortunately this also poses problem if David were to be with anyone else because I’m sure his girlfriend would not appreciate Angela being such a big influence on his life.
I think it’s simpler than all of this. Angie likes David, sure, but she gets to vicariously hang out with super folks, who she wishes she could be like, but with someone who doesn’t make her feel inferior since David doesn’t have powers either. Of course, she could want to do the hunka-chunka with him TOO. Would that be bad? I think not.
As for potential missing strips…um…perhaps the number “93″ bears a strong resemblance, in the native script on David’s mother’s home planet, to the ideogram for “Felicitations upon the house for the birth of illegitimate sextuplets to the chief concubine to the factotum-in-chief. Disintegration of the father will be at 4:37pm, just after tiffin.” And thus, to avoid any interplanetary embarrassment due to the misinterpretation of the symbols, that number was skipped. Maybe? If not, it’s still funny to think about.
I think the missing strip is just Armando’s pre-post pruning. But feel free to go nuts with conspiracy theorys. They’re amusing to watch.
Another theory is that Angie hangs round the ‘mat because the superhero through-traffic is a great place to pick up clients. And potential superpowered dinner-dates.
Mind you, we have established that she can home in on cases from halfway across the city. This requires further exploration. Now where’s Wolf and OhHai to debate the physics?
I don’t think that there are any missing strips. If you look, it doesn’t skip from 92-94. If you check more closely, the strips are posted in thhe order: 90-91-92-94-93-95-96…
Ah… Thanks for clearing that up. I guess Armando is now spared the grueling task of re-numbering every comic since then.
Amazing how she makes seemingly flawless conversions between well-thought-out philosipher to being… well, Dani. I’m not so sure she’s fit for the throne, and if she gets it anyway, then the Empire is in trouble.
Well she was really deap there for a bit, and then fell back on kiddy teasing. I like the look of David in panel 3 and the kissy face, she is just cute as a little kid there.
I loved “say the word sir”. Thank you for the smile I’ll be I’ll be wearing all day on that one…
Of course, Angie’s rational for spending most of her free time at the ‘mat is that there’s no-one else to hang with. And presumably David has a non-existant social circle as well.
Which either indicates major personality flaws, or the thought of doing a dozen extra charcters to represent their friends makes Armando wimper in a corner.
The wonderful thing about Leo
Is Leo’s a really tough guy
His body is stronger than iron
His countenance will make you cry
Why, why, why, why, WHY?
Because if you lay a finger on Dani then
You will surely die!
Youuuuu will surely DIE!!!
Don’t ask me where that came from. And for those of you without childhoods who have no idea what I just did, here’s a hint:
Aaaaand he’s the only one!
For which bystanders may be grateful.
Leopold amuses me also. Can I have one?
She really is like Ed… Cute, wacky and innocent on the outside, but with a profound intellect that most people wouldn’t anticipate. Methinks that she will be an excellent leader, one day.
I’ll admit I too have often wondered why she hangs out at the laundromat so much, and I did figure something like this was possible… But I certainly didn’t expect the matter to be brought to the fore so soon. Very bold of her. And I’m surprised that David is so easily able to admit his feelings. (Though I’d term it more friendship, than codependency… unless Dani knows something we don’t.) In any case, I can’t wait to see how this develops!
Now, a question. Though it doesn’t really relate to today’s comic… I was browsing through the archive earlier, and I realized that there is no comic #93… That number gets skipped over. Oversight?
I think its the fact that a scary alien capable of making men crap their pants has an understated grasp of sarcasm that makes me like him
