The Times Between 50.
The Teen got married. Maybe I’ll tell you about it someday. I’m tired, and old, so I’m just gonna leave it at that tonight.
I should probably remind people patreon and subscribestar exist to help support my efforts. Thanks for considering it.
Perfect. Just perfect. BITIN’ TIME!
This is just pure comedy gold. XD
Mike and Ed went from “don’t know anything about puppets” to “this puppet is a sentient being over which I have no control” in record time.
That’s…that’s the setup of a horror movie, like The Great Gabbo.
Gabbo! There’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. A long time.
It’s bitin’ time!
Why do I get a pacman vibe from this?
Thanks to some absolutely strange book selections at a library, I knew who The Great Gabby was before The Simpsons even existed.
If you’ve ever needed to see a musical starring Erich von Stroheim, this is the movie for you.
And I haven’t typed Gabbo enough times for autocorrect to know it.
Currently available in its entirety on YouTube.
You know, you can say a LOT about YouTube, but even the most diehard of hater will have to agree that it’s one of the greatest archives of old video EVER. From 1920s movies to obscure 1980s sitcoms to 1990s advertising, it’s right there.
This is now officially my favorite story arc of not only this webcomic but most comics I’m currently reading of all time.
…I’m not going to go that far, but studies show that this riff is indeed tasty.
I know! This arc is turning out to be a lot of fun! :D
Hah! I love how Jesse/Ed’s sibling relationship has now been summarized in a single frame. “Ow, Hey! He’s got plastic teeth!”
How long has it been sense The Teen was a teen?
I don’t remember
This is one of the few comics that I can really enjoy without what might be considered major story arcs. Its fun to just see the characters decide to do something and see its logical conclusion.
This is just fantastic. I don’t really have any other words.
This had such a dynamic flow, it was great, best strip of the year for me!!
The only issue I have with the times between is that Jackie treats them as being less worthy, and refuses to number them in the same number series as the rest of the comic. I wonder how much confusion this is going to cause for future archivists. Will Ph.D. theses be written in 2257 about the significance of the different number series used, utterly confusing the recommended reading order?
Since these exist outside the regular continuity, and some reference real world things, they need to be set apart. They also are mostly recycled pages with new text.
Well, as we say when a family member gets married –
“She’s not our problem anymore.”
