    • xhunterko

      “Well that’s it for this train wreck”.
      Awww, I was having fun.

      “Have some more one-offs coming up before a very special Halloween Arc ”
      Looking forward to it!

  5. Alex M.

    Wow what happened to Joey arm in panel 4

    • Alex M.

      It look strange, maybe too flat… but his face is pricelees, it’s like “come on, you have a week talking about a movie you disliked”

    • Noir The Sable

      It’s bent so that the elbow is obscured behind the doghouse wall, so you see just the upper arm and the fingertips.

      • Alex M.

        Oh yeah now i see, hehe next time i will look more closer and with more atention, thanks :D

      • Frank

        That’s “fingertip” in singular: it’s only his thumb

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      your face is my face when Halloween arc.

      I’m so tired. Running Start is hard.

  6. lightwolf21
    • Inu225

      Read it. Liked it. You get a gold star.

      • lightwolf21

        Thanks. :D
        Summer Wars is awesome btw.

        • Inu225

          Yeah it is an awesome movie.
          While I’m on the subject, “Summer Wars” is coming soon to US theaters in late 2010 licensed by “Funimation Entertainment”.
          DUB or SUB I would highly recommend you see it if you haven’t watched it yet.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            wait. Those are both for the same thing?

            They look completely different except for that thing with the key.

            Now I must see this.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            soooo…… ai dun get it wu iz this about?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            It is about something. You must watch it.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            oh thnx dat very descriptive -_-

    • Gizensha

      Naw, he only hates the dub. I mean, sure, he does it to extremes that are terrifying, and at least half of those 113 changes are likely neccessary to make a translation of something work (Or, in the case of a dub, make the syllable pattern fit for the mouth movement…), probably more, but…

      …For true fandumb… Well, head onto a Doctor Who fan forum some time and mention how much you enjoy the new series.

  7. IceKitsune

    My god Jasper is just way to obsessed

    • lightwolf21

      Japser’s a cat. Oo

    • IceKitsune

      *smacks forehead* I mean Lester

      • thegamist

        I don´t have any trouble anymore with confusing names since I´ve read the series a hundred times over in lessons with a computer

        • thegamist

          I know
          NO LIFE

  8. Thegamist

    some FRIEND he is

    • Hypergenesis

      Indeed Joey’s a great friend to have to be patient enough to listen to Lester all this time.

      Before you start, this was an intentional misunderstanding.

      • thegamist

        Actualy I was talking about joey
        and YOUR point

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          So by intentionally misunderstanding an intentional misunderstanding, he properly understood?

          Two wrongs DO make a U-turn!


          • Val Kilmer Batman

            ACK! intentionally misunderstanding an ACCIDENTAL misunderstaning!


          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s “two wrongs don’t make a right, but three rights make a left”.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai no ai herd that sumwer b4 but ai’m not sure were :?

  9. SamBlob

    Looking at the bright side: it was short, and we got a better look at Squeak.

    This Sketch Has Been Abandoned.

  10. Alex M.

    So, they have laptops and iphones(?) :D

    • lightwolf21

      If they’re ‘parents’ can afford it, I suppose.

      • lightwolf21

        their* grammar problems tonight -_-;

        • Alex M.

          haha, now they have pups ._.

    • Hypergenesis

      Peanut has a Wii and something that plays DVD.

      • Shady Kitsune

        The DVD player is at a Sandwich household living room, so I assume it’s their “parents” DVD player. Of course the Wii is in Peanut’s room.

        • Alex M.

          Yes, i know remember Peanut also have a DS
          Lucky pet :D

          • thegamist

            gimme those GAAAAAMES

  11. West

    He reminds me of my brother strange enough

  12. Pokeblue

    Wow, I didn’t know anyone could talk that long. I guess I could give him a few points for the show of loyalty.
    I definitly give Joey more though for this.

  13. rtlstien

    I don’t know if anyone has asked this, but does Lester have a dollar bill on his collar? If so… why? With how much he keeps rambling on about Japanese culture I would think he would have the ¥ symbol.

    • Alex M.

      Maybe is a TGC card

    • Rocket Knight boy

      lol yeah 2 comics ago, i proclaimed it to be a YU-GI-OH card…i stand by such a claim

  14. HunkRlz

    I know people just like Lester who all overreacted when they saw James Cameron’s Avatar -_-

    • Hypergenesis

      Were those overreactions? X)

  15. PrivateElliot

    Oh and nice shading on the last panel.

  16. Fenrari

    Wait…. the mouse is his roommate?

    • PrivateElliot

      You new or something? read the “Cat Tail” story arc.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Your face is rather harsh. It’s amazing how avatars can affect the tone of text!


  17. Chaos Lightspeed

    =/ man, it’s people like that on the internet I can’t stand. Those who think that no matter what, their opinion is the one that matters most and they’re the ones that are always right, and anyone who disagrees is a moron. Still, love the comic, lol

    • Zepho Mors

      I also dislike people like that. Makes me wish I could teleport to them just to cause even more brain damage.

      • Chaos Lightspeed

        Same here, especially since I’m a Sonic the hedgehog fan. you wouldn’t believe the amount of Fandumb, as someone put it up above to describe Lester, that goes on in that fandom. It’s horrid, and it makes me ashamed to be a part of the Sonic fanbase, because of how many people I hear that dislike the littlest things about what goes on. i.e. Sonic 4, new game ocming out, people boycotting it because his eyes are green and not black, the clasic spriting isn’t being used, etc. I respect what others just gets rediculous though. -_-

        • Zepho Mors

          I read a article about that can’t remember where, but I laughed my ass off reading it. Sorry if that offends you though.
          But I agree it does get ridiculous.

          • Chaos Lightspeed

            Naw, doesn’t offend me at all, it’s just..TOO ridiculous. I feel like one of the only sane ones who accepts changes in what I see in the fanbase, and acts how one should act. open to new ideas, not insanely stubborn, etc

          • Shady Kitsune

            I agree with Chaos Lightspeed here. Though I do not visit Sonic fansites, given the reasons he just did. =/

            The funniest part about the supposed boycott is that probobly everyone who says are doing it will buy the game anyhow.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            “Oh, I bought the game, but only to see how RIDICULOUS it is.”


            “Yeah! Feh!”

  18. Wilford B. Wolf

    I really dislike people who do this: spending a lot of time watching and b*tching about something they profess to hate. If you don’t like it, why do you spend so much time thinking about it?

    • Hypergenesis

      Thinking to yourself with that much opinions would only serve to further the insanity even more. Better to do this than say it all at once.

  19. Razuk

    Lester has now gained a lot of my respect.

    • Frank

      LOL. wait, you do things like that too?

  20. Zepho Mors

    Lester is very annoying with his pathetic fanboy crusade against the English dub.
    I mean who ruins a game of D&D to rant about anime. I feel sorry for Joey and Squeak for having to put up with that.

    • Frank

      It’s his D&D character’s special power: right to gloat

      • Zepho Mors

        True, true. But my special power is Abuse of Power*
        *DM only power. Used on whiny players.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Depending on the setting:

          “Rocks fall, you die.”

          “IntSec drops from the ceiling, you die.”

          “Inquisition exterminatus, you die.”

  21. Hoheh

    Lester can’t let it go can he? Also, new avatar, because Fido and Sabrina is nice.

    • Valerio

      I concur.
      YAY for F+S cuteness :D

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        ditto and also wen peanut colored in de pic uv dem 2 match his and gwapes fur color XD!

  22. Valerio

    OK, it’s official: Joey is the normal one, here!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Lester really looks sinister in the last panel.

  23. Chaos Lightspeed

    Oh, I’d just like to point out, anyone else just love how he seems to think Joey CARES?

    • Alex M.

      Mee, that happened to me once, a friend keep talking about a movie, and i was like -__- , he talked about it for 3 days

      • Rocket Knight boy

        hehe i jabberd on like lester here to my friends when i first played mass effect (i love the game too much) my friends did not appreciate this lol

  24. thewhitedragon

    Joey shares his home with Squeak?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      this is not new.

      I am showing off my new avatars at you.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        do not be offended, the face is not at you. Directly. It’s looking at you in the mirror, so it’s basilisk gaze shall not kill you.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          and this is my “D’oh!” face.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            did u gaiz no that the word D’oh iz officially in de dicshonary

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Neither is “gullible”.

          • Val Kilmer Batman


            Sonic said that it IS, Argent said “neither”, as in THIS ALSO IS NOT, AS THE OTHER IS NOT.


          • Argent Stonecutter

            I failed my sonic-parsing saving roll.

            -20 XP
            -1 Charisma

          • Hypergenesis

            +1 derp

            Sorry couldn’t resist.

        • Hypergenesis

          And off to the cropper I go, later. . .

          But to reply to thewhitedragon,
          Just because your girlfriend’s at your home late at night doesn’t mean she’s living in right?

  25. Quiv

    Guest-starring Biff in panel four =P

  26. Valerio

    Joey in third panel FOR THE WIN OF CUTENESS *wanna hug Joey*

  27. Hypergenesis

    Exactly what I’m doing at work. .

    Boggles me. .

    Am I Lester?

    • Alex M.

      That’s me when im studying -__-!

      • thegamist

        guess who´s WORSE
        and by WORSE I mean sitting behind a desk like there´s a plug been pulled out of his/her life, staring at a blank point @ the wall, waiting for hours to pass hoping that the task will just vanish in smoke (although he/she is to stupid to realize that he/she is waiting) & practically drooling on his/her keyboard

        cross out *her* or *she* and you have,… ME

  28. iHavezMyBirdo

    I can’t wait for Halloween~
    It’s just so terrible!

  29. Hypergenesis

    I also curl up into a ball like this while I work. . .

    • Hypergenesis

      Really creepy contortions. . .

      Good thing I didn’t say exactly. . .

      • dalonewolf25

        You might want to start running now. I’ll hold them off!

  30. Hypergenesis

    Anyone noticed how big Joey’s doghouse must be to have that many function rooms?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s second-hand, he got it from this beagle in a flight helmet…

      • Frank

        Huh? I thought Sasha had gotten that dog house!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          He’s really hard on doghouses. Not just getting shot up by the Red Baron, but the vacuum exposure on the moon encourages dry-rot, and you really need a reinforced floor for the marble tub…

  31. falcon01

    I feel your pain Joey! I have friends EXACTLY like Lester

    • Hypergenesis

      I feel your joy Lester! I have friends EXACTLY like Joey.

  32. Hypergenesis

    Panel 2 Lester must have offended Joey who had a girlfriend who liked the “derivative garbage”.

  33. Hypergenesis

    I’m sure I’ll start using the alt text as a comeback in my future conversations.

  34. Hypergenesis

    Panel 2. . .

    iPhone induced paralysis? Wait. . I think it’s a blackberry. . . Hmmm. . .

    • Alex M.

      No, it’s look more to iPhone to me,becuase the Blackberry is more square shaped and the IPhone it’s more mmmm…. more rounded (?)
      Yeah sorry i don’t now how to explain hehe…

  35. Inu225

    Wow this is major Anime Otaku ovah herah!
    This is probably where me-relating-to-Lester’s-character derails. I mean I admit I am an Anime fan like Lester the only difference is I have this thing called “A LIFE”.
    Yeah I have my little gripes when Dubbed Anime hits America and then I move on with my life. I don’t obsess over it. I got better things to do with my time like finishing up school, working at my part-time job and reading this web-comic and not necessary in that specific order.

    • Silver Dragon

      A life? What’s that taste like?

      • Inu225

        Bland, coy, and overrated.

  36. Snowmon

    I already know when I’m being stupid…
    I don’t need someone to remind me…

    at 3 in the morning…

    p.s.. Japanese dub vs American dub. WHO CARES! They each have their strengths and weaknesses. (

  37. Tara

    Wait, why’s Joey with Spo and why is Spo suddenly so large?

    Did I miss something? D:

    • Hypergenesis

      Because, my good friend, that is Joey’s girlfriend Squeak and not Spo.

      • Tara

        Oh…I probably should have refreshed the page before commenting. xD Thanks Hypergenesis. :D

    • Tara


      That’s his mouse girlfriend. :3

  38. Rocket Knight boy

    hmmm……i’m just wondering when Bino’s going to meet a rodent friend of some sort to have hang around his ears? Fido has one, Joey has one i think i see a mouse shaped pattern here lol

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Zach needs a mouse-friend to put some steel in his spine.

      • Rocket Knight boy

        but he is already protected, protected from the terrible secret of space
        darn it argent XD

        • Argent Stonecutter

          There’s a mouse-shaped hole in his life.

          • Rocket Knight boy

            if zach had a mouse friend it would have to deal with marvin

        • WingedWolfGirl

          …why …WHY did you remind me of that vid? you really didn’t have to.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Because I told him about it yesterday, so he’s freshly indoctrinated and needs to share the pain.

    • Frank


    • Hypergenesis

      I doubt he’ll get one, Bino doesn’t need a “mean speaker” anymore.

  39. Tosxychor

    Eyes… progressively closing…
    Urge to kill…. steadily rising…

  40. Kitch

    So the end result is, Lester’s a douche? x3

  41. gagi

    grape needs a mouse friend…. oo wait .. forget it, she ate the last one :P hehe

    • Frank

      *volunt– waaaait a second…

    • Hypergenesis

      So they’ll always be together. . .

      • Rocket Knight boy

        until toilet time…

        • Hypergenesis

          Thus the avatar, thank you for explaining the joke.

          • gagi

            omg .. lol .. you guys are awesome :)

  42. Frank

    Panel 4: That… shading… is… awesome!

    Also, the ampersand is reversed in panel 2

  43. Exranio

    Joey actually looks ready to beat the crap out him.


    • Frank

      Ahahaha! That totally sounds like… something he would do. How about a squeaky bone?

      • Rocket Knight boy

        LESTER!! ’squeek’ IT’S 3 IN THE ’squeek’ MORNING!! GO! ’squeek’
        TO! ’squeek’ BED!! ’squeek’ ’squeek’ ’squeek’

  44. AdriGummi

    My God… Lester is scaaaaary XD

  45. Exranio

    Does anyone here think that Lester acts a bit like Bino “they both have this hole every one has to acknowledgment me and the way i do things” think about theme

  46. HunkRlz

    Who in here will love to see Joey Bop Lester into last week?

    • Rocket Knight boy

      hehe i must admit it would be more imoral to let lester carry on than it would to beat the crap out of him

    • Hypergenesis

      Bopping Lester into last week means the next comic would be cued for Lester again.

  47. fox-cub-bold

    So Joey and Squeak are living together?

    How scandalous <3

  48. Wolf Pup TK

    Uuuuuugh, cannot stand Lester. He’s every obnoxious weaboo rolled into one horrible ball of fur. X_X

  49. e

    joey: no, squeak he still here.

  50. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Joey and Squeak live together?

    All this needs is for Bino to get a mouse friend too, then all three brothers could be in the company of one.

  51. Nia

    The more I watch Joey ranting the more I think of the people who ranted on Watchmen and Scott Pilgrim….It’s creepy…

    • Rocket Knight boy

      people ranted on scott pilgrim! BLASPHAMY!!!

      • Nia

        Yeah, alot of people ranted on the movie. Saying how it was just a piece of hipster garbage.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          THOSE individuals shall soon be met with a swift kick to the face followed by a booming voice yelling K. O!!

    • Hypergenesis

      You mean Lester right?
      Joey doesn’t even have lines in this comic. . .

  52. Argent Stonecutter

    Halloween arc. More Tarot!

    Why am I thinking about the Great Pumpkin?

    • Hypergenesis


      Halloween is all about scaring children and pillaging their candy stock!
      This be the only time they actually ask to be bullied, why not do so then?

      • Rocket Knight boy

        your halloweens sound…interesting, dare i ask what costume you pillage in? (if any) lol

        • Argent Stonecutter

          When my kids were little I used to wear devil makeup, then dress up in this scary monk’s robe with a staff, and pull the hood over my head so you couldn’t see my face. Then I’d sit on the front porch, sit very still, listen for the little voices.

          “Is it real?”

          “It’s a dummy.”

          “I’m not going up there!”

          “I’ll show you…”

          Then I’d wait until I saw their sneakers, look up throw the hood back to expose my horns, and grin diabolically.

          Good times.

          • Rocket Knight boy

            hehe cool, when i get my own place the halloweens are going to be great (for me hehehe…) being the crude and questionably mentally sound person that i am i’d wait for the knocks on the door and greet them with a rev of my chainsaw! (just to scare them off of course!)

        • Hypergenesis

          Nothing too complex, wear a black long-sleeved shirt, some black pants, a little more black here and there. Grab a few of their “adorable” toys and wait for the rings and break the toy’s head off after they ask “Trick or Treat”, followed by a sinister laugh and vegetable giving.

          I get scolded every time I do it but it’s well worth it.

          • Rocket Knight boy

            hehe sounds like many lols to be had! even during the punishment!

  53. NexusWulf

    Someones taking that all too serious .___.

  54. OutOfNowhere

    In this arc, Joey is normal.

    • Hypergenesis

      When was Joey ever weird?

      It’s normal for pets/animals to. . .
      Interact with other species.
      Mimic the lifestyles of other species.
      Watch TV.
      Be artistic.
      Play games.
      Do things that they can.

      If you look at it as an unbiased viewer, “normal” people do all those things as well though “normal” people are usually blinded by the narrow vision brought to them by social trends. At least they (Joey-like entities) know how to be really free unlike those who only see themselves free based on how being “free” was taught to them.

      • ndigit

        I think what he means is that Joey’s antics usually cause people to be exasperated with him. And the fact that he has a romantic interest with a mouse doesn’t help things much.

        But now we see Joey in a rare moment of complete annoyance toward another person, but this time by someone who is much worse than Joey.

      • Clairvoyant Legacy

        Also, Rick describes his as such on his character bio.

  55. Hoheh

    If so many people didn’t do it, Lester’s ability to never stop talking would be a skill at this point.

  56. anonymous

    so…so do they have puppy power or something?…you know…like…from that show “pound puppies”?

  57. Naylorfan90

    >w< This is almost painfully like people I know. As a big cinema fan, I am constantly surrounded by people like Lester. Bleh.

  58. CalaverX11

    …urge to kill…rising…

  59. Argent Stonecutter

    Heavens, there’s a lot of mature language in the comments today.

    • Hypergenesis

      It must be Hell then, try going back the flaming road and go down the sore throat road for Heaven.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I don’t even understand that.

            Can’t sit through that, too painful, bad dialog, chopped up images, odd, pauses…

            Oh, well the idea of the show was to look like a Noir Movie
            not all the people like that tipe of movies, oh well i tried.
            And now a want a pet flamingo. ._.
            Rick should draw them :D

          • sonic id furreh!!!

          • Alex M.

            Forget the flamingo

    After this lil monolog I started to think about who’s the more annoying: The fanboys who don’ know the original or the ones who do? XD
    Love these short arcs, keep’em up Rick. ;)
    Can’t wait to see some Halloween scares. :3

  61. Salenstormwing

    I personally like some anime dubs. Some of my favorite are Lisa Ortiz’s VAing of Lina Inverse. If you’re going to complain about anime, you need to complain about the VA they get for it, and not that it was brought to the US shores.

  62. WingedWolfGirl

    Actually, I don’t hate Lester on this one.
    Because if/when the movie for my favorite fandom comes out, I probably act just like that.
    …Only more “psyched” then “demeaning” –about it.

  63. ndigit

    I might actually have forgiven Lester had he been talking about Dragon Ball Evolution. However he is not. So I smack him.

  64. Authur

    …so this guy WOULDN’T just try to buy an import? Also, Rick, in the first panel where the guy is talking about the review score, you should’ve replaced the second “that” with “they.” Other than that, it’s actually kind of funny. :P

    So how long do you guys think it’ll take for him to realize that Joey wants to Fursit Pawnch him in the face?

    • Frank

      Actually, I’m thinking he’s talking about how low the rating is. “You’re studio doesn’t care about staying faithful to the original? Hah! You only got a 77!”

        you forgot the “.com” part, or else the e-mail won’t work.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Works fine in the HP universe!

            well, you’ll need a time-space fabric cutter knife in order to connect to the internet there.

          • dalonewolf25

            where did you get yours?

          • Argent Stonecutter


      • Rocket Knight boy :)

      • WingedWolfGirl

        1. It doesn’t need “.com” because “.hp” is the domain.
        2. what’s creepy is, when I click it, my e-mail program accepts it as a real account.
        3. In regard to dolonewolf25’s comment; Do Babylon Garden residents wonder what the .hp domain stands for?

        • dalonewolf25

          In response to #3, it could be one of three more things:
          1. It could mean “Home Planet.”
          2. Their internet protocol is named different, so they just suppose to think that the extension is named after so.
          3. No one really cared. It really didn’t matter as long as it would let them access their e-mail.

    I hope the Halloween Arc will have a Legend of Sleepy Hollow story. :3

  68. Sigma

    That “&” looks more like a treble clef.

    • Frank

      That’s because it’s reversed. Hold up a mirror to it to see it properly

  70. FerreTrip

    *twirls the rolled-up newspaper like a baton around one end* SILENCE THEE, WHINAH!! *THWACK*

    I knew I’d have to. >_>;
    Special Halloween arc? Hmmm…this sounds intriguing…Also, I think this might be the shortest arc yet!

    Lester reminds me of my cousin…

    Shouldn’t have exposed him to Bleach and Naruto. That was a big mistake.

    • dalonewolf25

      Same here, except I did it to my nephew. He’s 4 years younger than me…

  73. DoctorEevee

    Lester took this a bit over board ._. buuuuut I see his point and i agree to it~ just not to this extent =w=

  74. Firewolf

    Aaaah, American culture at it’s finest. =D

  75. Hypergenesis

    I got to ask though. . .

    @Argent: Is this what you meant last comic about the detail of the spot on the eye and how it should be quite uniform?

    If it is, great job on doing it Rick.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      He’s doing it well enough that I didn’t notice it. ^^

      • Hypergenesis

        I just noticed that in panel 4 it was still irregular. . . Though it seems the eyebrow has the power to clone itself. .

        or was it forehead wrinkles like in pugs, just lest wrinkly for Joey. .

        No no no, no overanalyzation at this late hour.

  76. Lance

    Lester needs to take a chill pill.

  77. Juan

    I just have 1 question:
    what is squeak to Joey? (I mean, friend, pet or something else? (if your pet have a pet does that make him your pet too?(and if so, you have to buy rat food?)))

  78. Fuzzypaws

    One must wonder if Lester has any other friends!

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      yah man me an him iz laike dis *crosses fingers*

      • dalonewolf25

        …that comment could go both ways, none of them being negative…

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          an dats just how good ai am 8-)

  79. Pew446

    Hey what does one-off mean?

  80. Mort64

    Ha ha these three comics were amazing! Lester acts just like my little brother!

      Lol, I have played Farmville Lv.29 and Mafia Wars Lv.352

      • Alex M.

        Actually i play mafia wars lv.335

  82. Thomas

    I’ve followed this from start to the current comic strip and all I’ve gotta say is that this artwork and jokery is brilliant. It was recommeded by a family member and while it didnt make any sense halfway through it does now. Thankyou for the fun

  83. government grants

    Keep posting stuff like this i really like it

  84. Hoheh

    So Fido got patience and Joey did too. What happened with Bino? He can’t even get tips,since he hates Fido and only seems to give Joey attention when useful. Oh. Sasha. She could do it…

  85. Tha Housedog

    Heh, I just finished catching up yesterday, I love this comic.

  86. Hoheh

    I just noticed that the wideness of Joey’s eyes matches his patience for more ranting.
