  1. Pseudo Faux

    Oh dear lord… is he still on about the movie?

    • Tha Housedog

      Alt text: Sorry Joey, it doesn’t work like the Neverending Story just because you don’t stop.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        • Zander

          Correction: 80 friggin chapters


          • madmoney

            u my friend are amasing

          • BluFox

            Meh, I’ve seen worse. The fact that I’ve browsed fanfiction enough -to- have seen worse is an indicator of my obsession.

          • Espemon333

            It could always be ‘James Patterson’ chapters which take about 10 seconds to write and half that to read. Half THAT and you have the number of pages. Then again, this IS Joey we’re dealing with here.

    • Teh Brawler

      Silly Faux, that was Lester. :3

      Silly Joey.

    • Mr Valentine

      Thats what it looks like 8O

    • gaboris

      Wait what? I’m slow again, what movie is it? I just can’t make heads or tails from these type of texts. XD

      • Frank

        See September 24th, 2010 for the movie people think it is
        See August 26th, 2009 for the movie that it actually is

        • gaboris

          Hmmm okay I know what ya mean, but I don’ get how does it connect here? Those were two totally different movies… or what were ya trying to say again? O_o”

  2. Tha Housedog

    Zander’s strip OH YEAH!

    • Cool Aid Man

      *breaks through solid concrete wall*
      OH YEAH!

      • HonorèDerazey

        *Piece of concrete lands on Xbox* NOOOO! I WAS ABOUT TO GET THE NUKE!

        • Pogiforce

          Play a real game. c.c

          • HonorèDerazey

            Relax, I play far more game than just CoD.

          • Lupus

            What? Xbox? More than CoD!? Is that even possible!?


            CoD > TF2, Get a PC, let’s not discuss consoles here tho kk?

          • Foxstar

            The comment section is not the place for this.

          • Mr Valentine

            TF2 is ace I renamed my sandman “Wife beater”


            Oh I;m sorry, I meant CoD < TF2, but lets stop so the mod no mad

  3. xhunterko

    Ah, got it after reading the alt text. Nicely done.

  4. IceKitsune

    His story just keeps going and going.

  5. Tahoe

    Guest week!!!!! =D

  6. WyldKAT

    Hahaha. Also I really like how Zander drew Joey.

    (I was going to do a guest comic but couldn’t think of anything. I am a sad panda.)

    • HonorèDerazey

      I was going to do a guest comic, but I forgot what it was going to be about, then I remembered what it was going to be about, but then I remembered I couldn’t draw, then I got distracted by an eye floater and forgot about it entirely.

      • SamBlob

        I didn’t get a round tuit.

        • gaboris

          I didn’ even know it’s gonna be a guest week. I WIN… or lose? O_o”

    • Frank

      Dunno. I’m so used to seeing him with four fingers, he looks wierd with five.

    • G1itch3D

      Kat? Is that you? It’s me, foxie!

  7. rtlstien

    I sometimes spend some time writing a story, but not 80 chapters in one sitting!

    • kingisawsome

      how do you know it was only one?

      • rtlstien

        Because of the alternate text:

        Sorry Joey, it doesn’t work like the Neverending Story just because you don’t stop.

  8. kingisawsome

    Babylon gardens is now in what joey is typing. It is panel 3 at the very bottom

    • gaboris

      Sharp eyes, I couldn’t see the text through with these cut sentences and all. :D

  9. Lax

    Aaaand here we go again! Can’t wait till you’re back from vacation and all…

    • HonorèDerazey

      That’s what everyone said when Rick switched to the new style in which he drew Housepets.

      • Lax

        But it’s still the same person, only a modified style that takes getting used to. As for guest art, 90% usually sucks in comparison. That’s to say, only a few people can come close to the fans’ expectations either with close to the original art or a very good “fan art” that seems to work for them. Let’s face it, these outsiders can’t match the original (given that the original is of average to moderate quality)

        • Foxstar

          Be polite or be silent.

          • Frank

            I thought he was merely quoting Sturgeon’s Revelation

  10. Mr.0

    is he still complaining about the movie

  11. Ramisisk

    el el adorable Joe!!!!!! ….. y sigue con eso de la pelicula -_-…..

    • HonorèDerazey

      Ummm… WHAT?

      • Lax

        He said you need to learn another language :)

        • Ramisisk

          ….i dont say dat…… yo dije…:

          Joe the adorable !!!!!! … .. and continues with that about of the movie-_-… ..

          a new wolrd in other languaje….:

          Pelicula = movie

          • Frank

            A better translation would be “he’s still going on about the movie”

            Also, world = mundo
            Word = palabra

          • Ramisisk

            my fault….. and thanks….

            (go to google traductor)

            adivinen de que pais soy

          • Ramisisk

            wait a second …. yes i want to say:

            Otro mundo en otro idioma!!!!!!!…. but thas not the point!!!!! ok


            Pa mi que eres Peruano o algo asi. (Chileno)

          • madmoney

            aperson said: PA my you’re Peruvian or something like this.

          • Ramisisk

            ….no….. no soi peruano…. soy panameño

  12. Ramisisk


    Joe the adorable !!!!!! … .. and continues with that about of the movie-_-… ..

  13. ShawnTF


    • Ramisisk

      no …. joe is unestopable…. wee need some wepons… lots of weapons to stop them

  14. Ramisisk

    no …. joe is unestopable…. wee need some wepons… lots of weapons to stop them

  15. RegularBird

    I can imagine him going on for days writing that.

    • anon_omis

      Ya it is. Since he only exists in this comic strip he doesnt really exist and can thus do anything.

  16. Russiarules1

    Whoo, Zander got his comic!
    Looks like he is good drawing…
    I suck at drawing -.-”

  17. Shadeol

    Wall of text.

    Reminds me of when English/History teachers would say ‘just keep writing until the time’s up.’

    • anon_omis

      The only problem I had with that is that I suck at to write papers

  18. Falcon01

    poor poor fanboy!


      *Forever alone*

  19. Lance

    holy cow. 80 pages? Joey…you need a new hobby.

    • Ramisisk

      naa he is fine…. tell other tings them he can do for example…. ?…. see nothing he is fine in his place

    • Copycat

      Writing books is a bad hobby?.. You, sir, are silly.

    • Quote

      no, he doesnt need to REPLACE this hobby, he just needs other hobbies so he’s not shut up in the computer room writing fanfic all day

  20. Kyderra

    this is somehow very recognizable,
    witch scares me,.

    • dalonewolf25

      Don’t mess with the witch…

      Also, I see that too…

  21. Frank

    Um… are all the guest strips going to have alt text?

    • Tha Housedog

      Why not? I’m just not sure if Rick’s giving the alt texts to the comics himself, or if the artists of the guest comics provide them themselves…

      • gaboris

        The original artists would be the more logical choice I’d say, but Rick can come up with good ones as well so that may be right as well. :D

  22. Copycat

    What program is he using? o_o

    • Clairvoyant Legacy

      He’s probably typing straight into a website submission system.

    • Izander

      I created the “website” from scratch, because if I used a screenshot from a real website, then it would probably be copyright infringing or something -_-

  23. netherwolf

    He just doesn’t let go :X


    I like the way joey looks, y’know, that “I Haven’t slept in 4 days” look

    • Silent Kitsune

      Also the spiked hair

  25. icarus

    i really have to say that while i understood this *after i read the comments* the comic itself is too jumbled and overloaded with text to smoothly convey the gag. maybe rather than making the words the central focus of the panel and instead centering the chapter number it would have been more readily conveyed. it’s not BAD, it’s just really amatuerish… keep in mind the human eye is lazy. if you want to make a visual gag with WORDS, you have only a few seconds of the eye’s attention searching for the ‘funny’ words. in this comic’s case, the chapter number is steamrolled by the wall of confusing tangently coherant text below it. i found myself reading that, looking for the joke, feeling frustrated that it cut off…and not even seeing the chapter number.

    all in all a really good shot at a comic, but next time zander – think about the lazy human eye and remember to CENTER your gag in the middle of the panel if it’s one that relies on noticing a tiny detail like that!


      I think the point of the first 3 panels is to show that Joey is writing a wall of text, kinda like you just did, not to actually be read :P

      • icarus

        If we’ve reached an era where two paragraphs is a “wall of text” it’s no wonder atrocious slop like “Twilight” is so popular…

  26. Argent Stonecutter
    • gaboris

      Thx, NOW I won’t be able to stop thinking about the move for SURE. XD

  27. CaptainPea

    Who’s John?

  28. Tom Flapwell

    Sorry, Rick; I procrastinated too long to meet your deadline.

    Say, did Zander choose the hovertext, or did you?

  29. Hopper2004

    …..I don’t get it……
    HELP ME!!!!

  30. FarmMan1812

    Wow, Zander’s comic is posted. “Imagine that”

  31. FerreTrip

    80 chapters? Wow, he kicks my tail! I’m only up to 30 (I think)!

    • Ramisisk

      maybe he was goin ti make 3 boocks

  32. Housepetsfan15

    If he is typing, then where is the keyboard??

    • Quote

      it’s … wow. you’re right. ZANDER! how could you have missed that?!?!?!

      • Zander

        Laziness for the win.

        • Mr Valentine

          How long did it take you to do this?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s the gray area. He didn’t draw in the lines.


  33. e

    i like the reffence to The Neverending Story. now if yu excuse me. *dancing to the Neverending story theme song*

    • gaboris

      That’s an awesome song and I can’t get it out of my head now, thx alot. (But Wolf will never dance!!! :p) XD

  34. Jitters

    what website is that lol!

  35. WingedWolfGirl

    A dog writin’ a Pridlands fanfic. Nice! XD

  36. blackwaltz7

    i would expect him to be writing “saucy fan fiction” actually.

  37. ...

    So, just wondering: is “Bino” pronounced “BEE-no,” “BYE-no,” or “BIH-no?” Because I’ve been thinking it’s the first one, but I just want to be sure.

    • Frank

      This was asked before (couldn’t point you exactly to when). Rick said it was “BYE-no”

      Of course, that’s not Bino, that’s Joey ;)

      • ...

        Right…the “J” on the collar should have tipped me off. Anyway, thanks.

  38. Sirus

    I like the new art style… if that is one

    • Sirus

      Just read the guest comic portion… silly sirus

  39. gaboris

    Guest comics and fan arts are always wierd for me, but they show how much ppl can love something right? :)
    BTW I can imagine Joey doing that and that’s the first time I don’ think it’s sad. I just love this lil rascal too much to be mean to him. X3

  40. Hoheh

    Joey looks a bit… well, cracked, in this page. I like Joey’s happy face.
