    Ahh Rick, you never cease to entertain us. =)

    • Silver Dragon ordinence

      Isn’t That True

  2. Challenger01

    Must be quiet in the Library Jim-Jim….

  3. Val Kilmer Batman

    *sings* “I can do anything!”

    • Challenger01

      “Anything you can do I can do better!”

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        “I can do anything better than you!”

        • FlareKitsune

          Can’t let you sing that, Batman.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            but ai laike his singin :(

        • Trefoiler

          No you can’t…!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      WHY IS THE READING RAINBOW THEME SO CATCHY?! WHYYYYYYY?!!!

      • Firewolf

        I thought it went like (from my memory “Take a look, inside a book, it’s reading Raaaainboooow, Reading Raaaaainbooow!”

        • AflacMan13

          And you would be correct. It is also very catchy too though.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Part of it goes: “i, can do, ANYTHING!!” and then “I, can go, ANYWHERE!!”

  4. IceKitsune

    lol Superpowers to go to the library

    • Hypergenesis

      It’s a privilege reserved only for superheroes.

      That’s the Superhero’s LIbrary!
      Annual traffic: 3

  5. xhunterkoh

    Shush! Quiet in the library!

    • Lance

      hehehe look who’s at the top. ;)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        >:P

        (it’s a caveman)

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          The emote is a caveman sticking his tongue out at you. I didn’t mean to imply that I thought you were a caveman.

          • xhunterkoh

            cough…
            I kid, I kid!

  6. Fenrari

    radioactive goo gives you clothes now?

    • Lance

      yes. and a mask that covers your eyes.

      • Fenrari

        I’d love to try some then :)

        • NexusWulf

          me too pwz X3

  7. Val Kilmer Batman

    If you could hav any superpower, what would it be?

    Mine used to be CONTROL OF TIME!! (ooOOOHHhh!)

    But recently I’ve decidedto change to be able to make any sound I can imagine, and as many different sounds at once as I want, and to be able to tell what the resonance frequency is for ANYTHING.

    My weakness would be that I wa unable to hum or make spud ou o my nose.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I’d kind of like to disassociate into a utility fog and reconfigure myself for any computational or physical task. That way I could turn into an otter, and being an otter is a superpower!

    • Expletive deleted

      Mine would be the power to sense and control the flow of heat from one object to another. This power allows me to change the temperture of any object/area by transfering the heat somewhere else, as well as being able to know the temperature of an object (In Kelvin) simply by looking at it. Never again shall I have to wait for the A/C in my car to start working on a hot Texas day. I shall be comfortabley cool, FOREVER MORE!!!!!!

      Muhahahahahahahahahahahaha

    • SamBlob

      Darth Vader’s ability to choke people to death from a distance using the Force.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      How about being able to control the probability of quantum states? Then you could shift the world into one where you’re an otter, and being an otter is a superpower!

    • Trefoiler

      I hear a lot of good ideas on the subject- controlling time, temperature, shape and form- but I’ve come to see them as very roundabout. If I were given a choice, I’d pick one very simple power. Telekinesis.

      Telekinesis is the ability to move physical objects through space, yes? Well, that’s all well and good, but lacking in detail, it seems. Moving objects means moving matter, which means moving trillions of coherent atoms, and quintillions of subatomic particles in one fell swoop. But what if you forgot the swoop, and could learn to micromanage? Why, you could disassemble matter into its simplest form and proceed to do whatever you wanted with it! If we could freely manipulate the subatomic universe, turning an oil spill into miles and miles of tender, juicy Bat-bat™ Brand Chewing Toys (you were expecting ‘ bacon’, weren’t you?) would be as simple as turning wow, I am a geek.

      I was planning on throwing in some bonus temporal jiggery, but I think you get my point.

      Telekinesis. ftw.

  8. lightwolf21

    I gotta say, panel 4 is adorable.

    • Clovis

      http://a.imageshack.us/img227/1710/munchmunch.png I made you a better version of that image! :3 It’s got no white at all except in the eyes, and of course no blue lines.

      Just crop it to your tastes and set it as avatar.

      • lightwolf21

        Cool, Thank you Clovis! :D

  9. Val Kilmer Batman

    Anybody else think that the “Uh, Stripe?” is suspiciously rememicint of “Uh, Grape?”?

    I dunno, I read it in Peanut’s voice.

    • Gaboris

      So it’s not so obvious then we thought so far? Ya got a point there Sir MAN. :D

  10. Val Kilmer Batman

    “Toxic Waste: Its like ice cream… for SUPERHEROES!”

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Oh, I forgot to put “panel 4:” in there. Oh well.

    • Trefoiler

      Spot (superdog)’s world, it seems more like all the superheroes eat ice cream while the common folk chug toxic resins until they BECOME superheroes/villains/hamburgertime’d.

  11. Inu225

    They must strength their body and mind.
    Cuz knowledge is power!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      “The moar you know…”

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        The more you glow!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Oh crap, I totally jus got this after I posted all ready:

      School house rock?

      “School house rocky, a chip off the block! School house rocky, from school house ROCK!” or something like that.

      I have Science Rock on VHS and i’m not ashamed to say that if I still had a VCR, I would still enjoy it.

      • Midnight Wolf

        “It’s Schoolhouse Rocky, a chip off the block on your favorite schoolhouse. Schoolhouse Rock!!!” I have the entire series on dvd and I DO still enjoy it.

    • Trefoiler

      Guys, guys!

      “… And knowing is half the battle!”

  12. BlueAnubis

    Lady CatDog can take her supersuit off? Mine became ingraned onto my skin when I got my superpowers! (Thankfully, it’s fashionable.)

  13. Thoth

    Ah, flavored toxic wastes. Not even one of the Champions players has come up with that one yet.

    I shall have to put in a malevolent plot to add flavoed toxic waste to the school lunch programs next time we switch back to that game.

    • Blood

      There is actually a candy now called Toxic Waste. It’s similar to Warheads.

  14. lightwolf21

    Stripe appears to be enjoying it.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Your avatar is adorable. The adorableness is overwhelming. It’s like, if there was an adorableness scale, it would be at or above a newborn baby touching the nose of a curious, droop-eared puppy with sad eyes. It’s that adorable.

      • lightwolf21

        That’s pretty adorable.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I KNOW, right?!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It would be more adorable with a baby otter.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Processing…

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            NO!

            TOO! MUCH! ADORABLE!!

            YES!

            WE SHALL USE THIS POWER FOR GOOD AWESOME!! THE WORLD SHALL BOW BEFORE THE ADORABLE POWER OF OUR MIGHTY… AXIS OF ADORABLE!!!!!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Is that a clam-peeking-out-from-its-shell emoticon?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai suppose it cood beh but ai dun think it iz ^.^

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Pity, the clam would be good noms for the baby otter.

          • Trefoiler

            Sonic, Argent, I went into your links wondering if I was going to hate myself for it later. When the first picture loaded, the first words out of my mouth were “Oh,” “DEAR” and “GOD!” in that approximate order.

            I somehow managed to view the other three and now I will have to remove myself from the computer because I am destroyed.

            Touché, my friends. Touché.

          • Trefoiler

            And shame on you, Sonic! That otter pup is adorable and I think the emote you want is ” :) : “. Or ” :/ “.

            Just thought I should say. Off to oblivion with me. For reals.

        • Trefoiler

          : ) :?

          Yeah, that’s the one.

  15. Eric

    Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm! Ocean Sludge Ripple! One of my favorite toxic waste flavors! Right up there with Nuclear Winter Blast!

      Chernobyl Chip is the best, man. It’ll BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

        i’m partial to caramel quarintine bars myself

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Bhopal Biriyani, Cesium Curry, with a Strontium Sundae and Gulab Jamun for dessert.

    • Max Wolfe

      Whatever happened to Vanilla Sulfur Surprise D:?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Sodium Citrate, Ammonium Iodide
      Mix it all up and impregnate your brain
      With DicloroDimethylTriclorethane!

      It’s a superpotion you can sing to “The Irish Washerwoman”.

    • Trefoiler

      I like to mix Depleted Uranibits with Ytterb-yum Shake– you know the one, with the little imitation Nobelinuggets?- in the same bowl.

      But that’s just me. I’m weird. I also like to give them a few seconds in my COOKALIZER. Mm-mm-melty. ^_^

  16. Val Kilmer Batman

    Can I have panels 1, 2, and 7 Stripe? PleasepleasepleasepleasePLEASE?

    • lightwolf21

      On it, Boss! *salutes*

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I meant, can I have them. I’m selfish like that.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          But thank you nonetheless. You are too kind, oh great adorable one who is adorable.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I’ll have to do it tomorrow, though. And I’ll never be as adorable as you. SO ADORABLE.

            I can feel my manliness being sucked into the bottomless pit of doom. But… ADORABLE!!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            You have blessed me with great gifts given slow, and I thank you.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh, I just noticed that that should be great gifts given BELOW

  17. Val Kilmer Batman

    *PA speakers blare*

    “ATTENTION ALL PERSONNEL, AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE IS TO FOLLOW.”

    “Stripe is officially my new favorite character.”

    “THAT IS ALL.”

    *crackle*

  18. Val Kilmer Batman

    What’s the alt-text say? Phone makes me cry. Of course, it somehow gives me super-commenting-speed, so yay for that. But then, I comment so Fast that people can’t respond to me, or don’t want to encourage me, so sad. But also, it may just be my ADHD. So meh. STRIPE IS AMAZING. That is all.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      WILL NOBODY TELL ME WHAT THE ALT-TEXT SAYS?! WHAT AN UNUSUALLY CRUEL LOT YOU ARE TODAY!

      • lightwolf21

        naturally, now that Stripe has become the Protagonist, she stops questioning the world’s shaky logic

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Thank you, oh personage of great adorableness who brought me to the Way of Stripe.

  19. Exulen

    Can I have a vanilla toxic waste in a cone or does it have to come in a bowl?

    • faceless commenter

    • lightwolf21

      Oh noez! What have I done?!

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        What HAVE you done? You could conquer the world with adorableness!!

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Oh SNAP! comments messed up again!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I wonder who’s comments were ninja’d out…

            Considering that try were probably mine… I’m going to just slowly back away… and then I’m going to hide… and then I will continue to comment from afar. MUAHAHAHAHA.

          • lightwolf21

            I put links to the avatars you requested up, but the post is awaiting moderation.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!

            You are a deity amongst mortals. A deity of adorableness-age-ness.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Ha! Accidentally appropriate comment!

      • Rick Griffin

        A post is flagged if it has more than one link in it

        • lightwolf21

          Ah, OK. I’ll be more careful next time.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Rick is awesome too. Let us never forget that.

          • lightwolf21

            Indeed.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Adorable! It almost looks like she’s eating cereal! Why is that so adorable? I have no idea!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The third one is about to rage-quit!

    • WingedWolfGirl

      AWESOME. XD
      You removed the stripes on Stripe.

      • lightwolf21

        I see what you did there. XD

  23. namelessone

    Haha, lampshade

  24. Oren Otter

    Stripe is a girl?
    Stripe is running around naked?
    I knew this was an awesome comic, but really…

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      She’s not naked, she has a collar and that’s good enough for a dog.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      You know, all Spot (Superdog) ever wears is a cape… that’s ALL he wears. (I think. It only shows upper body on the previous comic and I’m too lazy to scroll over to the story arc links.) (but the cape is attached to a collar. But if it applies to Stripe… you deserve the mental image!) (I was just kidding, but what has been seen can never be unseen. It’s like Joey and Squeak. FORGOT ABOUT THAT DIDN’T YOU?)

      • Trefoiler

        What Stripe has now is a collar and mask, which is plus one article of clothing. Although, I have to admit, for some reason that mask makes her look an awful lot like a cat. Which is really throwing me off! You know, what with it being Stripe, who despite all appearances is not a cat.

        • Trefoiler

          Which is to say it is quite the disguise! Bravo, toxic waste.

    why indeed!

  27. GameCobra

    superhero costumes: now free with your job application!

  28. Firewolf

    I love Stripe’s (who is not a cat) expression in panel two. Rick, you never cease to amaze me with your art, even when it look like it’s drawn by a eight year old. =D

  29. Argent Stonecutter

    That’s how Spot defeated The Pedant. After he got his own daytime superhero gig he lost his awesome pedant powers, which made him bitter and turned him into Rules Lawyer. Which brought his pedant-powers back, more annoying than ever, but in the hands of Good, or at least the DM.

  30. Teonnyn

    Prediction: In classic Jimmy Olwsen fashion, Jim-Jim will gain control of the dino warriors, run off to live on a uninhabited island and be their leader. Spot will go Sonic Spot with the gem.

  31. Gaboris

    Yeah Stripe (“who is not a cat”) will save the day by teaching us kids about the importance of reading right Mr. Author? (Full superhero name for our master I’d say.) XD
    Yeah that darn radioactive goo is all around our place as well I can hardly keep myself from falling into it every day… but why do I even try? :D

  32. faceless commenter

    radiation is fun

  33. Chip Uni

    …because being a librarian IS a super power.

  34. RockstarRaccoon

    …Seriously?

  35. Silver Dragon ordinence

    I really thought the glasses on stripe made her look like a super villain.

    • Silver Dragon ordinence

      I fact, they both look like villains. . .

      Strange.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      She does, kind of.

      Come, Jim-Jim. Together, we can rule the world as Awesome and Dork!!

  36. Val Kilmer Batman

    WOOHOO!

    Naturally.

  41. AppleSauce

    you may be giant nowz jim-jim but i still hatez you

  42. PuDdY15

    Uh yea so uz ditch dat geekeh super-hero suit for a burgelers outfit….. nice stripe ai bet spot wont have a problem with dat…… also “Ladeh Dog”…. realleh? 1st deres super dog den deres ladeh dog…. ai jus dont get it. why not make a cool name like Toxic dog…. or Shhhh dog!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I think maybe it’s like Supermanboy and Supergirl.

      I was going to say Batman and Batgirl, but then I realised the implications there, and decided that one with a “boy” in the name instead of “man” might be better.

      It’s Superdog and Lady-dog.

      Besides, it was kind of a rush job. maybe she didn’t even get to PICK her name. After all, if the toxic waste (which is ice cream… for SUPERHEROES) gav her an outfit, it may have given her a name too!

  43. Val Kilmer Batman

    Stripe’s eyes in panel 2 just reminded me of Grape in panel 3 of this strip right here that I’m about to post for you all to view.

    So… if she’s Lady Ca- er, Dog, then Who’d Jim-Jim?

    The Incredible Jim-Jim?

    JIM-JIM SMASH!!

  50. Hoheh

    Stripe is an adventurous c- dog.

  51. dragonnutds

    she probably just wanted powers,

  52. Hoheh

    And Jim-Jim really does seem to be the comic’s Joey.

  53. Argent Stonecutter

    The flagon with the dragon is the potion with the poison, the chalice with the palace is the brew that’s true.

  61. Trefoiler

    Super people read books, too! Really, they do. But I’ll forgive you this time, Jim-Jim.

    Partially because you’re a hunk now. And Stripe just got her awesome+ patch!

    Sweet!
