    Ha! I especially liked the punchline, good comic.

  2. Riesz says:

    Nice comic and yeah, the punchline is pretty damn good ^^

    Nitpicking: “Then, if I wait until you grow up AN get married”. “And” is missing a “d”.

  3. LazerFX says:

    Unless he was doing an accent, in which case it would be a deliberate omission – though technically, to indicate that, it would need an apostrophe, so “an'”, as opposed to “and” or “an”…

    Nit-picked backatcha ;)

    It’s still LuciEn, you know…

  5. acronix says:

    Lucian is a real world name, so I guess the confusion comes from there. It´s the writer fault. He decided to take one not-so-used of the real world, and then changed one letter to show his superb creative skills.

    Also, it happens when the character fails at being memorable.

  6. Avaz says:

    The punchline made me chortle milk through my nose. Ugh, hahaha. Well done, sir!

  7. Shamus says:

    In my case, the “Lucian” thing happened because I ran a couple of D&D campaigns with a character named LuciAn, and I have typed the name that way many, many times. My fingers don’t like doing it the other way.

  8. Jeremiah says:

    Didn’t you say something about having a column in the Escapist today? Is that up, yet?

  9. gyfrmabrd says:

    The pokemon punchline was a mother-lode of comedy gold!
    …one a’ dem days, I’ll get myself an account at the escapist, too, so I can spread the fanboi-ism around a little!

  10. Angie says:

    Another thumbs-up for the Pokemon bit — that was perfect. :D

    And seriously, is it really that hard to come up with an actual evil-mastermind type of plan? :P

    I think it’s the same mentality that has people running and playing RPGs, whether tabletop or on the computer, to think that the greatest ambition any thief character could ever have would be to become the Bestest Pickpocket In The World!!! :/ I tried arguing about that in a game I used to work in, pointing out that there are other things high level thieves could do, that Al Capone wasn’t known for picking pockets. No luck. And things haven’t changed since then. [sigh]

    Haha! I reaffirm the greatness of the punchline.

  12. Zaghadka says:

    Wow. That is some serious bloom lighting.
