Dead Skunkhead is back from ComicCon and he’s eager to show off his latest purchase; a needlessly huge statue that’s going to scare the daylights out of Becky every day for a few weeks until she gets used to it being there. From the sounds of things in today’s strip John didn’t exactly get Becky’s blessing.

No more kids!? That’s a little dark. Did they have kids to begin with? Forgive me for using track but kids in Westview are props pulled out during turkey sales and whenever someone is moving into the apartment above Montoni’s.

    I want to know what kind of contraception DSJ and Becky are using that involves Dr. Doom.

    No commentary needed…it sucked

    If I were to take a cue from my own experience, this obviously means Becky will be so upset with John spending money on something so “unnecessary” that it will set him back in the marital relations department until Becky goes through menopause.

    Thanks to my Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship, I fear I’m in the same boat.

    But my mancave looks SWEET!!!

    Please, this strip is already loaded with kids no one sees for decades at a stretch. Anyone seen Skyler lately? Wally Jr.? Rachel’s kid? Harry’s kids?

    Yeah, it is amazing how much money a couple has lying around when they get rid of both of their kids. Or maybe Crazy isn’t getting paid this month and DSH just can’t bring himself to break the news yet.

    Wally Jr’s room and board at the orphanage is presumably covered by charity or tax dollars, but is Rana paying her own way through college now? Good for her, she’s doing better than her father, who just bought (and had shipped in) a life-size statue of the primary villain from a comic book series that was recently cancelled.

  6. “Dr. DUMB” is right. For starters, the “life-size statue”, including the box, is shorter than the delivery driver unloading it in P2 (although in P3 it towers over him, so who knows?). And this statue is not a work of art that John has created, so why does he feel the need to “call it” anything? And, Skunk Head, in order to be “having no more kids” with Becky, you’d have to have had at least one with her: Rana’s an Afghan orphan, and Wally Junior is, well, Wally Junior. But TB’s not about to let any of these considerations get in the way of pandering to middle-aged fanboys.

    I think John means he intends to fuck the statue from now on… If the wifey doesn’t want to make it a threesome, that’s her loss…

    Nobody says “screw you” to the extra space in a Sunday strip like Batiuk.

    I didn’t think Becky and Dr. Skunkhead had any kids of their own. Then maybe Dr. Doom is intended to scare Wally away. However it works out, leave it to TomBat to create comic-book based contraceptive.

    Gotta say, this is a better looking Dr. Doom than whatever that was supposed to be in the last Fantastic Four movie…

    The backstory behind today’s strip:
    Batiuk felt like drawing Dr. Doom, and figured he might as well get paid for it.

  12. …and the world breathes a sigh of relief that Dead Skunk Head will never reproduce.

    By the way, why is Dr. Dooooom sticking his tongue out in the final panel?

  13. Merry Pookster

    He is lucky to even get a handjob from Becky

    One of the most underrated terrible stories Batiuk’s thrown up over the years was how Rana and Wally Jr became Gross John’s kids without any apparent friction or drama whatsoever, despite the fact that Gross John doesn’t even seem to like them all that much. It became even worse when the kids’ actual father came back into the strip and they treated him like some weird Uncle they see on holidays and special events.

  15. Reminding him that he’s never had kids of his own isn’t going to go well. Doom would forgive Richards before John would admit that he’s a Plan B that stuck out of sheer cowardice on Becky’s part.

    DSH John is what’s known in contemporary parlance as a “cuck”.
