  1. Dissension

    It’s nice that Res can assert himself like that, given his generally shy, reserved nature.

    • Zukio

      I think him asserting himself is like a mental breakdown from stress on his part…
      I wonder how he’s doing?

      • senorpie7

        I can only assume he must have some pent up emotions from being so quiet and compliant all the time. And I am sure after that little burst he is fine, but I cant help how peanut’s face on the last frame is just like his face after seeing the cat pillow fight in arc “down at the farm”
        :D

        • Dissension

          Now Res will worry about how he came across to Peanut. “He must think I’m a huge jerk.”

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            now YOU’RE drawing from experience.

          • Zukio

            Meanwhile Peanut must think: Wow I really need to come up with a good topic and quick!

          • Zaitsev

            I think, sense nobody did one, that they’re both thinking of an awkward cough

          • Maengun1256

            *clears throught and coughs*

        • Dragongal

          It’s not THAT alike with down at the farm. I compared the two.

  2. Ryufire

    The awkward silence! o.o

    • the fry pwnr

      sometimes even awkward scilence is the best conversation. XD

      • Ryufire

        Its like that little voice in your head saying “Hurry say something funny” XD

        • tbird000666

          SOMETHING FUNNY!!!!!!! Gucci Gucci louie louie fendi fendi prada one big room full of bad Turbos’ hahahahaha wahhhhhhh!! im no funnny or am i but im not hahahaha!!

          • Sato-kun

            Akward…

          • Frank

            While each of those is, in itself, an inherently funny word, I’m not sure that they yield the same effect when put together

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Want to play with a squeaky bone?

      Catnip mouse?

      How about Solatorobo?

    • gagi

      hehe always reminds me of this
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QELCwF7oSFs&t=586

      • Billy MT

        But nobody yelled “YAAAAAAAYYYYY” yet =o

    • Grip the Wolf

      Nappa: Ahhhhhh, I hate awkward silences!

  3. Zukio

    Awkward Silence is a nice change of topic isn’t it?

    • senorpie7

      The best topic around!

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        that was always the topic off discussion when I was with my first girlfriend.

        • Maengun1256

          That’s a topic I always bring up but for some reason she just don’t go for it lol

        • Ryufire

          I know the feeling brah!

        • Sato-kun

          Iknowthatfeelbro.
          It’s like, everything’s going nicely, until the topic runs dry and it’s like…
          “So…” “Yeah…” “Mhmm…”
          *Goes to find rope*

      • Zukio

        Need to think of a good topic? Never fear! Just use Awkward Silence! It makes everything better!
        *all in a Billy Mays Voice…

  4. Dontlookmenaked

    NOOO I WAS SO CLOSED TO FIRST COMMENT (curls up in a ball and cry)

    • the fry pwnr

      oh thats OK buddy, mabey we can go and get an ice cream or shaved ice. :] …………………………………………….lol XD

      • Yehoshua

        Grooming ice always makes me feel better!

    • Dontlookmenaked

      Ice cream would be nice :)

    • darkgloomie

      Even if you did get first comment, which is unlikely as Diss retroactively puts hers in the first spot in the rare case she isn’t around to actually post the first one, it would’ve probably been deleted, unless you actually added something to the discussion that isn’t “woohoo! first comment!”

      • Dissension

        I don’t actually do this, by the way. When the rules weren’t integrated with the comment box, I would put them on top, but I have never done so for general comments.

        • darkgloomie

          Oh, sorry then.

          Had the disticnt impression either you or Rick did this.

          My bad.

          Still, the point was: No “First Comment” comments allowed

          • the fry pwnr

            man im never the first comment because my computer is as slow as a snail

    • Foxstar

      We don’t do the “First” thing here. It would have only gotten your comment deleted.

      • Draven

        Still, there is a sense of pride that comes with being first to post a legitimate response.

      • Onemanarmy11

        What if you had something relevant to the comic, then said something like “Also, first!” At the end. Is that ban-able?

        • Frank

          I don’t think “first”, by itself, is grounds for a ban, but it does get the post deleted

          • Foxstar

            Frank is correct.

          • Onemanarmy11

            So if the post is like this…

            “Lol the comic is soooo awesome! Go Res! He is the best character! Also, first!”

            Would that get deleted, even though it had relevant-to-the-comic info? Sorry, I’m not sure I understood your last answer :3

          • Foxstar

            Yes. Like I said, we don’t do ‘first’ here.

          • Onemanarmy11

            Okay, thanks for clearing that up, mate! :D

  5. Maengun1256

    Let’s talk about Spot

    • Frank

      “Hey! I do this comic! Wanna see?”
      “I…er… okay. *sees* It’s… uh… good, I guess.”
      “Since you like it so much, maybe you’d like going over my supplementary material!”
      “I… guess?”
      “I’ll go get my binders!”
      “Uh… binders? As in… plural?”

      • Yehoshua

        I thought of the same! Get out of my head >: U

  6. senorpie7

    Wow.. He has some attitude! And here I am thinking he is soft spoken! :)

    • Barker

      Rick may just be projecting a little. Erm… I mean Res… projecting his voice…. Yeah… >_>;;

      • Zukio

        I don’t think Res can get above 60 decibels.

        • senorpie7

          Omg! That really made me lol. :D

    • Crackles

      Looks like he really does need a break from Pridelands.

    • Keldor

      Res: Oh crud, I did it again!

  7. IceKitsune

    That was very awkward, but it is nice to see him assert himself. Also Grape is totally being a huge fan girl right now.

    • Valerio

      GRAPE! Shame on you for offering *gasp* catnip!
      But you’re forgiven because you’re in so total fangirl mode. :D

  8. Lophiiformes

    How bout dem Cowboys?

  9. Maengun1256

    Darn phone, can some one put up the ALT-TXT please? And thank you

    • avorin

      no, i don’t draw from my own experiences when writing for res more then other characters, why do you ask?

      ya happy now. ;)

      • Maengun1256

        Yes very much so thank you :D

        • avorin

          well then you’r welcome………….

          (awkward silence starts)

          now what?

          • Maengun1256

            Ummm……. Yep

          • the fry pwnr

            EPIC DANCE PARTY!!!!!!!!!
            *starts dancing to random music out of nowhere* ………………………………………………………………………………XD

          • Maengun1256

            *Joins in the EPIC Dance party*

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            joins and brings the witches and hecate

          • Zukio

            And all was fun, until Lady MacBeth got there.

          • The_Rippy_One

            Don’t worry, she got some ketchup on her hands, had a conniption, and fainted. She’s sleeping in one of the guestrooms – Tarot’s watching her.

            Party on!

          • the fry pwnr

            *music stops after 5 hours of none-stop dancing*……………………… how about a movie? popcorns on me! what do you guys and gals want to see?

  10. senorpie7

    Also, if he is so tired of pridelands…..why does he have his laptop???

    • Lophiiformes

      Games?

      • IceKitsune

        That or another series hes working on perhaps. Though it could be a hundred things really.

        • the fry pwnr

          or games like ”MINECRAFT” :] or ”ddr” or ‘’stepmania” or ”tf2”. but knowing res for like 7 stripes im guessing ”MINECRAFT”. :]

          • the fry pwnr

            don’t juge me. >:[

          • Maengun1256

            Oh come oh you know he only wants to play Minesweeper, yeah I went there, hehehehehe

          • tbird000666

            oh but i will judge jk

          • Maengun1256

            Judgment day came and gone, and you my furry friend have been judged lol ;P

        • senorpie7

          Well, speaking from the standpoint of him enjoying pridelands and working to the point of exhaustion; it is a tiny bit weird he would be working on another series??

          • IceKitsune

            No because the other project wouldn’t be Pridelands which would get him away from Pridelands for a while.

    • McFly

      …Saucy fanfiction, perhaps? ;)

      • darkgloomie

        Is there any other type?

        • Keldor

          I believe there is also “weaksauce” fanfiction. >.>

    • Dissension

      It’s entirely possible he wants to be able to write other things, engage in whatever games or other endeavors he enjoys, and generally stay in touch with online friends.

    • Maengun1256

      Maybe Grape and him are goin to talk about her fan-fic or she could have to him about peanuts comic Spot

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      in the words of Timmy Turner: “uhhh… internet?”

      • Zukio

        Another fun Timmy quote: “Uhh, internet? Inheritance? I inherited the internet?”

    • Crackles

      Maybe it’s just something he always carries around. Doesn’t want to leave it to someone elses hands (it’s full of work material and such) or just works like a security blanket for him.

    • Valerio

      That laptop is like his safe for all his ideas and sketches about his production. I know the feeling, he does want to have it handy in case he comes up with something, it always happens…
      Or he needs it like Linus’ blanket.

      • Maengun1256

        I know the feeling I had a real bad scare last night I thought my puter crashed, Thank Peanut it didnt tho, I would’ve been lost if it did :D

      • Frank

        Uh-oh. You had to say that, didn’t you? That tea is probably about to test the resistance of those resistors now

        • Maengun1256

          Well I sure hope that those resistors can resist the resistance

  11. volkoseba

    So… you’re the author of Housepets!?

    • Zukio

      Everyone awkwardly stares at Rick…

      • Valerio

        follows collective embarrassed silence…

        • Sato-kun

          *Stares and whispers* “I think he’s a cat-lover guys…”
          (On a related note, which character would you say Rick is most similar to? I have a feeling he based Mr Sandwich off of himself, although it seems like a rather mundane prediction.)

          • volkoseba

            Karishad.

  12. AuvaAkita

    Without Pridelands, there is NOTHING to talk about!!!!!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      “Written any good books lately?”
      “…”
      “READ! I MEAN READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?”

      • The_Rippy_One

        Thank you Mr. Freud.

  13. Maengun1256

    Sounds like someone needs a Vacation :P

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      which is why he’s here.

      • Maengun1256

        Now it makes you wonder is Res going to vacation there or take Grape somewere to vacation

    • Maengun1256

      So what exactly is Jack again

      • Zukio

        Serious answer: The father/writer from The Shining.
        Fun answer: Someone who’s about to blow off steam in a fun, and possibly scary, way.

        • Maengun1256

          Hmm and here Iam thinking he’s nothing more than just a dull boy :D

        • Maengun1256

          Like the fun answer better lol ;p

        • Lophiiformes

          HEEEEEERE’S JOHNNY!

          • Maengun1256

            Nope Jack

          • Shifty

            REDRUM is peanut spelled backwards

      • Crackles

    • 1boredcanadian

      No beer, no TV make Homer go something, something…
      Go crazy?
      DON’T MIND IF I DO!!!!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      all play and no work make Jack unemployed.

      • volkoseba

        Wii play at work makes Jack’s boss distracted.

        • Sato-kun

          +1 to both of you.
          I used to play Doom when I worked in the guitar store near my place. I was still a dull boy. xD

          • Billy MT

            Nothing big about playing games at work. All the sellers around here in my city usually play Solitaire on the cashier PC. Caught once a furniture attendant playing Doom 2 years ago XD

    • SilverZeo

      Didn’t catch that, you’re Jack and all the work you have done made you a dull boy?

    • McFly

      Who is this Jack? I know no Jack.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        You don’t know Jack! Nobody knows Jack around here!

        • Nohbody

          Well [i]I[/i] know Jack.

          :P

          • Nohbody

            Gah, stupid forum reflexes…

          • Keldor

            Psh, please, you don’t know Jack!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You know Jack about Jack.

          • The_Rippy_One

            Nohbody knows Jack. Everyone knows that.

          • Maengun1256

            Well then if you know Jack then what is Jack’s last name? :D

          • Nohbody

            (I’d really like to answer that, but that would get me banned. :P )

          • Maengun1256

            Its alright we all know Jack’s last name n e way lol ;p

          • Keldor

            Last name? How about Sparrow? Jack Sparrow…

        • Phantom Tails

          You’re so funny! xD

    • Frank

      Psst! His name is Res

      • Maengun1256

        Ah Ha now all the pieces are falling together

  15. 1boredcanadian

    Peanut: Okay, if we aren’t going to talk about Pridelands can we talk about Grape’s fanfiction I sent you?

    • Zukio

      Res: Why do you think I am being silent?

      • 1boredcanadian

        Peanut: Because like me you can’t think of a topic for discussion?

        • Zukio

          Res: Um… Maybe?

          • volkoseba

            Me: How did I get in your living room?

          • 1boredcanadian

            Grape walks in: What are you two talking abou…*drops tea* Who are you and how did you get here?!

          • Zukio

            Peanut: There is a perfectly unreasonable explanation for this…

          • 1boredcanadian

            Me: As I read what is typed I notice that it’s quickly going off the rails and I’m enjoying every second of it.
            Grape: Oh, really?

          • Lophiiformes

            Colonel: Stop that! This is getting far too silly!

          • 1boredcanadian

            Everyone Involved: But it’s just so much fuuuuuuun!

          • Zukio

            Me: At what point did the 4th wall collapse?

          • 1boredcanadian

            Me: I’m not sure. Shall we continue the story?

          • Lophiiformes

            Colonel: As long as it does not get too silly. Please, continue!

          • Sato-kun

            Grape: So, got any more books in the works? maybe another Pridelands?
            Res: AAUUGGHHH! *Explodes*
            (Arc over)

          • Valerio

            Grape: Peanut, did you embarrass Res?
            Peanut (terrified): uh, no..?
            Grape: nevermind. Wanna play pillow fight?
            Peanut: *gulp*

          • Maengun1256

            Peanut: Just as long as its not a 60 Degree Memory foam pillow

          • volkoseba

            Me: well… I’ll be over here mixing plaster to repair the 4th wall if you don’t mind.

          • 1boredcanadian

            *looks at where the wall used to be* Me: This is why we can’t have nice things.

      • the fry pwnr

        peanut: Good point.

        • Phantom Tails

          *awkward silence*

          • the fry pwnr

            this is boring. it took me forever to set up my chiar, my popcorn, and my ”go Grape!” flag! come on lets see some BLOODSHED!! :]

          • the fry pwnr

            hey just because my pic/avatar is a hippie doesn’t meen IM a hippie…………… don’t judge me.
            its just how I roll. X3

  16. Crackles

    Someone might think that Res having his tail like that, shielding himself, would be just him being shy, but look at the first panel again. It was Grape who put it like that.

    • Zaitsev

      she’s just patting his tail.

  17. Eli

    A lot of people never understand that, usually, when you meet a celebrity or artist or some such thing… they rarely want to talk about their work. Most want a break from it at some point. Unless, of course, they state they want to discuss it.

    • Xane

      While I completely agree with this, and am the anti-fanboy myself (“Wait, don’t you know who I am” “Uh, yeah, but I don’t really care…”), a lot of celebrities also tend to forget that they wouldn’t be where they are if they didn’t have their fans. Leave them alone on the street (or when they visit your house as a friend!) but it always annoyed me to hear about celebrities at conventions spending the entire time either ticked off or apathetic. Why on earth did they go to begin with? …oh wait maybe they needed moremoney from their fans.Actually, Peanut could have been a lot more exuberant than he is here… bouncy playful doggie can’t help himself!

  18. leaffly

    Poor Res… Didn’t have much of a social life because of shyness :c I feel so sorry!!! QAQ

    • Maengun1256

      Well hanging out with grape and peanut will sure cure him with that

  19. SilverZeo

    Peanut: “… how did you like last week’s episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode?”
    ….. if the ponies aren’t first on any list, they’re in the top 3 somewhere…

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      If Peanut doesn’t want to be a cat lover, how could he ever openly be a brony?

      • Zukio

        He could have mixed values, allowing being a Brony to be easier than a cat lover.

      • IceKitsune

        Actually its less that he doesn’t want to be a cat lover and more like he doesn’t want the other dogs finding out about it.

        • SilverZeo

          But they do know, Fido just over turn his rejection to the dismay of Bino…

          • IceKitsune

            I’m not sure we know exactly what they think now. Bino kicked him out because he suspected he was. We don’t know what Fido said so he could have just over ruled Bino and told everyone that Bino was wrong. But I guess its possible they do know.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        He got along OK with the horses at the farm. He didn’t treat them like four-legged motorcycles.

        • SilverZeo

          How would those horse would react to that show…

  20. Valerio

    Possible outcomes:
    A) Res decides he did a wrong move by coming at the place of two of his most devoted fans.
    B) Res finds solace with Joey.

    • zeroslash

      Actually, that would make for an interesting twist — and a funny one at that.

      • zeroslash

        For ‘B’ that is.

    • Xane

      I get the feeling Joey would being the ultimate horrible fanboy. I can just see him running home to get his entire collectible series of Pridelands miniatures (new in box!) and trying to get each one of them signed as well as his completely TMI fanfic where cats and mice coexist in harmony

      • Keldor

        This. Sooo this. >.<

  21. Zukio

    Res and Joey are kindred spirits?

    • Zukio

      Meant as a response to Valerio…

    • Valerio

      i think that, of all pets in the neighborhood, unless Res needed such a break that hanging out with Daisy will help him, Joey is the one with most interests known beyond ‘pridelands’

      • Zaitsev

        not to mention they both aren’t the most socially active characters.

      • Zukio

        OK I can see it now, but I can also see it ending before it began if Lester showed up…

        • Zaitsev

          Joey probably isn’t too keen on hanging out with Lester after the Ninja Princess ordeal

        • Valerio

          In fact, I have the feelings Res is in to meet most of the cast.
          before running away screaming.

          • Zukio

            And then we won’t see him for another year?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      After Joey’s “Big Reveal” over Peanut’s picture, I think that Peanut would do everything possible to keep Res and Joey from meeting. Ever.

      • Zaitsev

        But hasn’t Peanut come to terms with the fact he’s a cat lover?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          There’s “a cat lover” and there’s Joey.

          • Zaitsev

            Not according to Bino

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I can’t see Bino knowing about Joey. His head would explode.

          • Zaitsev

            But isn’t Joey shunned by the other dogs? Like when he tried to help King and was thrown out of the club?

      • volkoseba

        Res isn’t a girl…

        • Zaitsev

          But he is a cat. And Joey is of the obsessive type.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          And Joey is a Pridelands fan. He’s probably written a creepy Pridelands D&D scenario. Three folders worth of special rules for Laughing Face and King Cheetah.

  22. wolf long fellow

    No faiar its only 10 here :(

    • Maengun1256

      so it hasn’t updated for u?

      • McFly

        Of course it has, otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to post here. ;)
        The same goes for me, this comic updates at 10 because I live in Cali.

        • Zaitsev

          he probably drove to the next timezone and posted that comment, then drove back to view the comic itself

          • Lophiiformes

            Tim travel!!1

          • Lophiiformes

            Blargh, typo!

          • Frank

            Poor Tim!

        • Maengun1256

          Okay can I retract my statment lmao

  23. Valerio

    I wonder if Peanut and Grape remembered to hide all the books and posters and other embarrassing souvenirs from that series…

    • Zukio

      I have a feeling that could go either way.
      Yes: She hid everything, but will be embarrassed by something else…
      No: Res enters the room, and possibly breaks down!

      • Maengun1256

        Well either way, cuz at the time all of grapes prideland stuff was put up she was a fan of Res’s mom

      • Xane

        Well it’s not like Res doesn’t know Grape is a fangirl (I do wonder what he thinks of her fanfic :D ) but that would be pretty funny to see. Poor Res’ having a Peanut-style brain shutdown.

    • Zaitsev

      Well Res might be assuming as much as them being big fans, considering the way she reacted when she found out his mom “wrote” the books, or how she went to the signing at all.

  24. Sonic Fox

    Ha, classic.

  25. xhunterko

    Like, well, uh….

  26. Tara

    /looks at last panel

    Poor little kitty. :c

    • Zukio

      Poor little Kitty and Puppy!
      Awkward Silence makes the both adorable though.

  27. FatalFox

    just making conversation

  28. Foldo

    Opera Mobile and other smartphone browsers don’t really like alt-text. :(
    May somebody provide it in the comments please?

    • gaboris

      Phew! I thought I’d have to write this thing down by myself. :D
      Here: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2012/01/04/all-work-and-no-play/comment-page-1/#comment-93682

      • Foldo

        Oooh… this is the alt-text? the lack of punctuation for signaling the quote confused me. Sorry about that. ^-^”

        • Maengun1256

          Yeah it confused me to a lil bit but it made sense

        • avorin

          sorry.

          (can’t believe i forgot the quotes. :( )

          • Maengun1256

            Ha its all good man it took me a couple of min to relize it but I got it Thanx tho these darn fones just won’t do it lol :D

  29. Keldor

    So then, let’s talk about… Uh… Hmm… Err… How about this weather? It’s been absolutely… Uh… Average for January? That’s not very interesting, is it? Hmm…

    • Frank

      Did we ever hear where Res lived? Maybe the whether is different there

      • Maengun1256

        Well at this point I think we belive he’s canadian due to the Maple Leaf but we can’t be sure yet

        • Zukio

          And as a shocking revelation Res is actually from Mexico.

          • Keldor

            *tries to imagine Res with a thick Mexican accent*. Nope, can’t do it. O.o

  30. Tagat

    Haha, man I am so glad Res came back, he’s definitely one of my favorites.

  31. gaboris

    Oh Res is such a party pooper. WHY don’ artists think of the FANS? D:
    (Just a joke Rick don’ get mad. :D )

    • Valerio

      the problem is that the fans think of HIM.

      • gaboris

        … Waaaaait… So I shouldn’t think aboot the artists?

        DANG I just realized this is just as much a white elephant as The Game is. D:

  32. drasingan

    Poor res is a slave to his owner how sad. = (

    • Maengun1256

      Not a slave per say, His mommy rescued him, well I guess at this point 3 years ago, from being a stray, so I think he feels indebted to her.

    • Foxstar

      What on earth makes you think Res is a ’slave’ to his owner? Your making assumptions and you know what they say about people who do that.

      • drasingan

        First of all did you read the comic strip! Then even if he was endebted to his owner then why does it seem like he`s regerating it now by saying those lines. Then another reasone i say this also becuase of the comic strip on decmber 17th 2010 becuase of what grape said to him and also becuase of what he said to grape in that strip to.
        P.S. sorry if anthing is spelled wrong, btw i even read all of these comics too for 7 hours on one over the weekend…=)

        • Foxstar

          Yes, I read the comic. I’m a mod here, I wouldn’t be if I didn’t read the comic. Your still making incorrect assumptions.

          • drasingan

            And how is that?

          • drasingan

            Soory I’venever heard the term mod before what is it?

          • drasingan

            never mind i figured out what mod stode for

  33. rayne

    I am so loving Peanut’s “aw crap” exrpession.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Peanut visits the intersection of Awkward and Embarrassed.

      • Maengun1256

        Peanut: uh oh better think of something quick ummm….

  34. Lindseycrew

    Weird, it’s as if peanut is staring at something in the ackward silence

    • Maengun1256

      He’s starring right into the face of AWKWARDNESS…. “look away peanut!!!”

      • Lindseycrew

        *prepares dramatic music, with a tilted zoom in camera

  35. deathcloak

    is res a guy?

  36. John Willow

    I wonder what Grape is so chipper about

    • Valerio

      she’s ‘only’ in the company of the PRIDELANDS author, who also happens to be her friend.
      Nothing to be excited about. Really. No, serious.

    • Maengun1256

      Grape in the Kitchen: OMG OMG OMG, hes actually here OMG, ummm… peanut HAD better not tell him my name used to be Princess Periwinkle, so help me i will find a candy cane suck it down to a tip and stab him with it, OH WELL, OMG OMG Hes here

  37. WingedwolfGirl

    Not much to talk about, huh Res? :D

  38. GameCobra

    And then Peanut shows him Spot. Followed by Res becoming the writer of Spot with Peanut being the Artist. With Grape not far behind with a blow torch.

  39. Valerio

    I can hardly imagine Peanut short of an argument.
    next comic: three silent panels, then him going “GRAAAAPE!”

    • Zukio

      The strip after that would be: three silent panels with them sipping tea, then Grape asking “If we can’t talk about Pridelands why are you here?

  40. thefirstonethere

    yes peanut, tell us what else there is to say in this dire time heh heh

    • Kuro Fox

      Well he could just ask what else Res does. Hobbies or anything.

  41. Jesse James

    Is it just me, or are the lines thicker and more solid than usual?

    lolRes

    It’s nice to see some older characters make an appearence.

  42. Grip the Wolf

    Peanut: Soooo… can you tell me anything about the next Pridelands?
    Res: Just shut up.

    • Valerio

      Res: And stop THINKING about Pridelands!

      • Grip the Wolf

        Peanut: But… I am unable to think of anything that ISN’T related to Pridelands!

        • Zukio

          Res: You forced me to do this Peanut… *hypnotizing watch

  43. The_Rippy_One

    Part of me wants Res to learn about Peanut and Grape’s complex romantic issues, and have those issues show up in the next Prideland book…Possibly have Peanut complain how unrealistic they are…

  44. Whitekitsune

    I wonder what Pridelands tastes like..

    • Phantom Tails

      It tastes like…..Pride!

  45. sockeye101

    Dat collar…

    IS HE CANADIAN!?!?!?

    • Maengun1256

      At this point we belive so

      • the fry pwnr

        i hate the idea but yes i think he is.

  46. Valerio

    Grape: “Max? Who’s Max? Oh, that black cat at the bookstore? Just a friend, occasional aquaintance, stranger. Want your kittens.”

    • Zukio

      *steals sign from Sasha and scratches out Poppies/puppies and changes to kittens.

      • Xane

        Don’t you mean “Kattens”?
        “Kittens is spelled with an i!!”
        “Kattins”
        “No the first vowel!”
        Grape’s too smart to do that in the first place but we’ll just say Sasha made it for her.

  47. Argent Stonecutter

    Peanut should call Tarot over and get Res into an imaginated Pridelands.

    • IceKitsune

      How would that help Res at all? If anything that would make Res angry and drive him even more crazy since the whole point of why hes there is to get away from Pridelands.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It would either make his head explode with crazy, or blow his mind with awesome. I mean, if you were an author, and suddenly you found yourself in the middle of one of your books… and you weren’t someone like Stephen King, I mean… you might decide it wasn’t too bad after all.

        • Lophiiformes

          It sure would be interesting to see H.P. Lovecraft battling it out with Cthulhu.

    • megaman64

      I fully support the Idea of bringing Tarot over, but not the pride lands fantasy because that has been done before.

      • Frank

        “Hey, Res. Did you know I make this comic?”
        “Er… no?”
        “Did you know I have a girlfriend with mental projection?”
        “Er…”
        “How would you like to be an innocent bystander in my comic? I mean, actually be in my comic?”
        “…”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Innocent bystanders don’t do so well in most superhero comics. Would YOU want to live near the Baxter building?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        OK, how about Solatorobo?

        • Kuro Fox

          Peanut as Red?

          BRILLIANT!

  48. FerreTrip

    Poor Res. And Rick. The price of being famous for being creative…^^;

  49. spiritkitsune

    The sound of silence.

    • black fox

      Um were is yer pic from?? Sorry rick the person pic cot my interest plea for give me

      • spiritkitsune

        I’m pretty sure Peanut will start the conversation with pridelands
        again.

        Hi black fox.
        Her name is Luna, have drawn her.

        • black fox

          Cool she asly looks good she a fox??

          • spiritkitsune

            Thanks, she’s a Kitsune.

        • black fox

          um kitsune??

          • spiritkitsune

            -Fox with up to 9 tales
            -Lucky charm
            -magical

  50. Maengun1256

    *The sound of crickets*

    • Kuro Fox

      *tumbleweed rolls by*

      • 1boredcanadian

        *sound of a pin dropping*

        • the fry pwnr

          this is boring. lets see some BLOODSHED! :] or something……………………
          movie?

  51. sonic id furreh!!

    grape being nice…… so….. weird! >.<

  52. Hawkstar

    Isnt Res a girl?

    • Foxstar

      No,

      • the fry pwnr

        well mabey. she could be hiding it like grape did at first.

  53. Draven

    Whatever Res has, be it laptop or suitcase, he is definitely trying to cover it with his tail. I now want to know what it is and it’s contents.

    • drasingan

      i`m pretty sure it`s his laptop, it`s to small to be a suitcase.

      • Draven

        Why not? I can’t imagine he has all that much to carry.

        • drasingan

          good point. But it does look like his laptop from 2 years ago on
          12/17/2010.

    • Kuro Fox

      Wouldn’t it be rude to go snoop around someone elses computer?

      Also, please ignore the spyware warnings you might have recieved, they are just flase alarms and in no way are sending me information.

  54. Sterling Rodd

    Well, he sure SOUNDS like a Canadian. :)

  55. Kuro Fox

    How Res wraps his tail infront of him like that makes him seem so shy. Nice attention to detail, Rick!

  56. black fox

    Gess thay cant think of eny thing els

    • black fox

      Also I love tea and is res from Canada seeing the mapol leaf for his tag

  57. efhosci

    Peanut: So…how was that punkin latte mochaccino burrito?
    Res: *Urk*

    • Maengun1256

      Man that just sounds so………..ummmmmm…..yummmy :s

  58. tiger

    love it

  59. Corgiwolf

    The thing is, Res’ face indicates that he’s at a loss for words too. When you’re that deeply engrossed in your work, whether creative or not, it consumes you. You can get tired of it but it’s still the only thing you have in your head. But it’s ok. When I had that same issue I just took a week off … of course everyone at first was like “Hey how’s the manuscript going?” and it was annoying, but after that settled down it was relaxing and I was ready (even excited) to get back to it!

    Source: personal experience as a writer and a programmer.

    Also I would totally be up for another guest week *gets sketchbook out* Well I mean I don’t know how to draw any of the characters *hides drawings of Peanut, Fox, and Bino* but I’d be willing to give it a shot if it would help!

  60. malinik

    grape looks a bit head over heels on this one…

  61. sonix brasil

    im felling like Res… =/

  62. TheHedgehog

    I must say, Grape’s happy face is just full of cute!

  63. Lolwowlol

    Is Res a boy or a girl??

    • Draven

      Boy

  64. Firewolf

    “…So um…you like the wheather?” “It’s fine…” Oh those lovely awkward moments X3

  65. Kasper

    I just realized.
    Wasn’t catnip the drug of the cats? And Grape’s just offering it like nothing? xD

  66. Shadatronic3000

    I feel bad for peanut. Triing to make conversation.

  67. Shadatronic3000

    How often does this comic update
