Ahh Rick, you never cease to entertain us. =)
Isn’t That True
Must be quiet in the Library Jim-Jim….
*sings* “I can do anything!”
“Anything you can do I can do better!”
“I can do anything better than you!”
Can’t let you sing that, Batman.
but ai laike his singin
No you can’t…!
WHY IS THE READING RAINBOW THEME SO CATCHY?! WHYYYYYYY?!!!
I thought it went like (from my memory “Take a look, inside a book, it’s reading Raaaainboooow, Reading Raaaaainbooow!”
And you would be correct. It is also very catchy too though.
Part of it goes: “i, can do, ANYTHING!!” and then “I, can go, ANYWHERE!!”
lol Superpowers to go to the library
It’s a privilege reserved only for superheroes.
That’s the Superhero’s LIbrary!
Annual traffic: 3
Shush! Quiet in the library!
hehehe look who’s at the top.
(it’s a caveman)
The emote is a caveman sticking his tongue out at you. I didn’t mean to imply that I thought you were a caveman.
I kid, I kid!
radioactive goo gives you clothes now?
yes. and a mask that covers your eyes.
I’d love to try some then
me too pwz X3
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.
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!
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!!!!!!
Darth Vader’s ability to choke people to death from a distance using the Force.
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!
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.
I gotta say, panel 4 is adorable.
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.
Cool, Thank you Clovis!
Anybody else think that the “Uh, Stripe?” is suspiciously rememicint of “Uh, Grape?”?
I dunno, I read it in Peanut’s voice.
So it’s not so obvious then we thought so far? Ya got a point there Sir MAN.
“Toxic Waste: Its like ice cream… for SUPERHEROES!”
Oh, I forgot to put “panel 4:” in there. Oh well.
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.
They must strength their body and mind.
Cuz knowledge is power!
“The moar you know…”
The more you glow!
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.
“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.
“I’m a victim of GRAVITY-YYY! Shooby-doo, DOWN-down-DOWN!!”
And I like the Better than Ezra cover of “conjunction junction” better than th original. Which of course made me think of this comment:
“… And knowing is half the battle!”
Lady CatDog can take her supersuit off? Mine became ingraned onto my skin when I got my superpowers! (Thankfully, it’s fashionable.)
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.
There is actually a candy now called Toxic Waste. It’s similar to Warheads.
Stripe appears to be enjoying it.
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.
That’s pretty adorable.
I KNOW, right?!
It would be more adorable with a baby otter.
TOO! MUCH! ADORABLE!!
WE SHALL USE THIS POWER FOR GOOD AWESOME!! THE WORLD SHALL BOW BEFORE THE ADORABLE POWER OF OUR MIGHTY… AXIS OF ADORABLE!!!!!
it wuld also b even cuter w/ dis and ah baby otter in it sumhaow http://media.photobucket.com/image/puppy%20and%20kitten%20together/wwfrappin/-kitten-puppy.jpg
ai’m not sure if dats adorible or creepy so ai do this (:)
if the baby otter talks like sonic, i am sold.
Is that a clam-peeking-out-from-its-shell emoticon?
ai suppose it cood beh but ai dun think it iz ^.^
Pity, the clam would be good noms for the baby otter.
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.
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.
: ) :?
Yeah, that’s the one.
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
Bhopal Biriyani, Cesium Curry, with a Strontium Sundae and Gulab Jamun for dessert.
Whatever happened to Vanilla Sulfur Surprise D:?
Sodium Citrate, Ammonium Iodide
Mix it all up and impregnate your brain
It’s a superpotion you can sing to “The Irish Washerwoman”.
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. ^_^
Can I have panels 1, 2, and 7 Stripe? PleasepleasepleasepleasePLEASE?
On it, Boss! *salutes*
I meant, can I have them. I’m selfish like that.
But thank you nonetheless. You are too kind, oh great adorable one who is adorable.
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!!
You have blessed me with great gifts given slow, and I thank you.
Oh, I just noticed that that should be great gifts given BELOW
*PA speakers blare*
“ATTENTION ALL PERSONNEL, AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE IS TO FOLLOW.”
“Stripe is officially my new favorite character.”
“THAT IS ALL.”
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.
WILL NOBODY TELL ME WHAT THE ALT-TEXT SAYS?! WHAT AN UNUSUALLY CRUEL LOT YOU ARE TODAY!
naturally, now that Stripe has become the Protagonist, she stops questioning the world’s shaky logic
Thank you, oh personage of great adorableness who brought me to the Way of Stripe.
Can I have a vanilla toxic waste in a cone or does it have to come in a bowl?
i take mine in drums……with extra strawberrys
I think grape got into supporting peanut into drawing again…
Tarot more likely.
You might not want to call the Nerd who just sed radiation to turn into a… giant… muscular… OH MY GOD I WAS RIGHT HE’S THE HULK.
Oh noez! What have I done?!
What HAVE you done? You could conquer the world with adorableness!!
Oh SNAP! comments messed up again!
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.
I put links to the avatars you requested up, but the post is awaiting moderation.
You are a deity amongst mortals. A deity of adorableness-age-ness.
Ha! Accidentally appropriate comment!
A post is flagged if it has more than one link in it
Ah, OK. I’ll be more careful next time.
Rick is awesome too. Let us never forget that.
Adorable! It almost looks like she’s eating cereal! Why is that so adorable? I have no idea!
The third one is about to rage-quit!
You removed the stripes on Stripe.
I see what you did there. XD
Stripe is a girl?
Stripe is running around naked?
I knew this was an awesome comic, but really…
She’s not naked, she has a collar and that’s good enough for a dog.
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?)
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.
Which is to say it is quite the disguise! Bravo, toxic waste.
RADIOACTIVE YOGURT GIVES YOU POWERS
Gives a whole new meaning to power drinks!
POWERTHIRST!! Made with Lightning! REAL LIGHTNING!!
The Taste Will Shock You,
AND LEAVE YOU FEELING CHARGED!!!
Warning; not for the ones that cannot withstand surprises.
RED BULL GIVES YOU WINGS. LIKE A SHIELD OF STEEL.
superhero costumes: now free with your job application!
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
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.
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.
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?
radiation is fun
…because being a librarian IS a super power.
I really thought the glasses on stripe made her look like a super villain.
I fact, they both look like villains. . .
She does, kind of.
Come, Jim-Jim. Together, we can rule the world as Awesome and Dork!!
Behold the adorable of my new stripe avatars, thanks to the adorable awesome person that is lightwolf21.
VICTORY SHALL BE OURS!!
sorry ai aredy took all de victory ^_^;;
but u can hav sum failur dat always tastes good XD
Aw, can’t you share? I would shate victory with YOU! I don’t like the tast of failure. It tastes likes tears and mud.
weeeeellllllllll ai ges i can shar but jst cuz ur mai buddy x)
YAY! VICTORY IS OURS!!
Happy to help.
This one is indeed, adorable. ^_^
But i like my current one and im not changing it thankyou >.>
The flavors of toxic waste = WIN.
Peanut sure knows how to write super hero comedy. xD
wai dun de jut use internetz ^.^ ?
they stopped questioning the worlds shaky logic and went to the library.
you may be giant nowz jim-jim but i still hatez you
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!
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!
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.
Peanut’s art style is getting more realistic!
ha ha yeah Jim-Jim SHHHHHH!
YUM “OCEAN SLUDGE RIPPLE” I LOVE THAT FLAVOR OF TOXIC WASTE!
Water, blackstrap molasses, imported habanero peppers, salt, garlic, ginger, tomato puree, axle grease, real hickory smoke, snuff, butts of clove cigarettes, Guinness Stout fermentation dregs, uranium mill tailings, muffler cores, monosodium glutamate, nitrates, nitrites, nitrotes and nitrutes, nutrites, natrotes, powdered pork nose hairs, dynamite, activated charcoal, match-heads, used pipe cleaners, tar, nicotine, single-malt whiskey, smoked beef lymph nodes, autumn leaves, red fuming nitric acid, bituminous coal, fallout, printer’s ink, laundry starch, drain cleaner, blue chrysotile asbestos, carrageenan, BHA, BHT, and natural flavorings.
I think Peanut’s art has actually gotten better.
So… if she’s Lady Ca- er, Dog, then Who’d Jim-Jim?
The Incredible Jim-Jim?
Stripe is an adventurous c- dog.
she probably just wanted powers,
And Jim-Jim really does seem to be the comic’s Joey.
The flagon with the dragon is the potion with the poison, the chalice with the palace is the brew that’s true.
how do i change my avatar or thumbnail picture?
Ok I fugured it out XD
Lady Cat Dog
So what happened to Bat-Bat?
He’s busy fighting The Penguin-Penguin!
Ocean Sludge Ripple sounds good to me
im feeling it
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!
