    Yes, that that you Mr & Mrs too busy to be a Homecoming Queen

  2. Haw haw, kids amirite, old people love sitting on sofas. Surely that Pulitzer can’t be too far behind this gem.

    Actually, that fact that today’s entry isn’t filled with cringe-inducing punnery, or an overwhelming comic book knock-off, er, ah, tribute, is a big relief. Then dialog makes sense and there is a smidgen of mirth in panel 2. Do your constipate face again Funky!! Please?!? However, the last panel setup is a bit much – Holly is annoyed by a ten-second message of assurance from The CW – so that Funky can deliver his penultimate sad-sack Dad line. Hey Holly, think how annoyed you’ll be when the calls stop.

    The only message I take from this today is that Funky spent years hanging around Montoni’s just to avoid being in the house with Cory. He was never shown hanging around the house with Edith prior to Cory being escorted out the front door.

    Cory: Not dead yet. (click)

  6. But really, when all you’re doing is marking the time until your inevitable annihilation by an IED, what else is there to say?

    OK isn’t Cory Flunky’s step son? Isn’t Holly divorced? Where is BioDad? Why is Holly a fat balloon yet Cindy is not? WHat happened to Rachel’s kid? Or Chien?

    The dead have made phone calls before (don’t get on the plane!). Maybe he’s dead and is just messing with their heads.

    You know what else is getting pretty annoying? The constant campaign to convince FW readers to embrace and love Corporal Cory, that’s what. Watching the two shapeless blobs fret over Cory was old after a day or two but now he’s mercilessly beating it into the ground. What a complete waste of time, too, as he could have used the time to maybe fill in another piece of one of the ten thousand dangling plot lines he’s never resolved. As if.

    (Remember, Holly, you’re aupposed to haggle with the comics store guy)

    “Here, comics store guy, take all the money I have!”

    (Remember, Holly, don’t ask Cory about his location or his mission)

    “Hi Cory, where are you and what are you doing?”

    Th’ fuck is wrong with her?

    Could it be that Holly is being developed as a stupid pain in the ass to set up a Flunky-Cindy reunion when she returns to the Armpit of the Known Universe, Cleveland? Flunky’d jump at the chance — He’s 80 now, and she’s still 25. He can take her to Moroni’s and everyone can make a fuss over how lovely his granddaughter is.

    It could happen.

    Except within a year on the divorce from Holly and the wedding (at Montoni’s, of course!) with Cindy, Cindy will become a bloated, baggy ball of goo with more chins than a Chinese phonebook. Battysuck seems to have some kind of “problem” with women — few, if any, turn out well or amount to much.

    By the way, you all need to make sure you visit the Comics Kingdom forum from time to time. Batso drops in, thinly disguised as RedRonin, and ridicules all his “jobless” critics with the sort of PMS-induced humor you’d expect from his type.

    Wow, sounds like Cory’s in to some dangerous work. Sounds like an interesting plotline. Be nice if we could actually SEE it!!!!!!!

    Jeez, even 9Cl did a war time plotline. And as god-awful as that was, at least it was interesting. Instead we have to watch incredible blob and his wife answering a smart phone.

  13. It’s remarkable how many times this strip contains nothing but drawings of people sitting around.

    Where do I want to go today? How about all over this comic strip?

    I’d love it if Batiuk went full asshole with that “these calls are getting pretty annoying” sentiment and had a later strip where the phone rings, it’s Cory, and Holly answers with “You know what? Don’t bother,” and then hangs up on her son’s ass.

    You’d think a mother with her son with a dangerous job in a combat zone would be thrilled to hear from him at all. Lord knows the community knows what it’s like to have those calls stop coming.

    I mean we get it: Cory is in the army and on a dangerous assignment, there’s no need to reiterate it over and over and over. But that’s how TomBat rolls…premise, premise, premise.
