Spot The Difference

Discussion (104) ¬

  1. Draven

    I have no idea what’s going on.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Rick is getting burned out, I think.

      • Frank

        Or, there’s some really, really persistent fan that just had to know what happened there

      • Rick Griffin

        This arc was actually more work than most other Spot arcs

      • zeroslash

        If anything, he seems to be having a surplus of ideas, but that’s just my perspective.

  2. GarrisonSkunk

    123 Fake Street

    • Legendario13

      Thats were the illegal fireworks were found!
      Oh no!
      The villans are going to send Stripe to space

  3. IceKitsune

    Oh boy Retcons, always so fun!

  4. Kazekoe

    Oh boy, it’s Memento. Can’t wait to see how it plays out!

  5. Erikuto

    It’s a good thing I ingrained that habit when I got that short term memory disorder . . . no wait, that was Memento. What was I thinking of?

    Alt text ^^^

    I think grape means the issue where Joey drew that cyborg for him Lol :3

    • Erikuto

      going to stop staying up so late just to do this…anyone feel free to take over posting alt text for phoners

      • legendario13

        MMmmm… maybe Garrison would do it.
        generally im on my phone so is unlikely that i can.

  6. Zaitsev

    Don’t believe his lies.

    • Gabe23

      But remember Sammy Jankis

      • Crash FistFight

        I have this condition. you see If we talk for too long, I’ll forget how we started. Next time I see you, I’m not gonna remember this conversation. I don’t even know if I’ve met you before…I’ve told you this before, haven’t I?

        • Fireclave

          I wonder if this counts as déjà vu

  7. *WhiteFang*

    Hmmm I could track down the caller by taking the area codes an fancy stuff or use Google maps

  8. Gabe23

    MEMENTO !!!! MEMENTO !!! M-E-M-E-N-T-O !!!!!!!!

    • GarrisonSkunk

      The Freshmaker!

      • Raska

        no no, that’s meMentos

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Do you eat them backwards?

          • Raska

            you eat the colored ones backwards and the grey ones forward

  9. Kajex, Sorcerer Supreme

    Haha, Peanut has a fan who follows his work. X3

  10. RJ

    i can’t even remember the strip they are referencing now and i read the whole series through like a week ago :(

    • RJ

      also apparently Peanut got back from Psycon. we never did learn how he got back

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Click on the “The Cyborg” tag for a refresher…its just three strips.

  11. D-Rock

    Nice way of handling the situation, Peanut. Maybe Joey kept the page until Peanut paid for having him do that one-panel drawing?

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Maybe Peanut will create a new villian based on Joey called The Artist who draws people and captures them, holding them hostage till they are paid the ransom of $10.

      • darkgloomie

        What a dastardly plan!

      • D-Rock

        That actually sounds like a pretty good villain idea.

  12. Xane

    And how often have your fans bugged you about this, Rick? :lol:

  13. GarrisonSkunk

    Wonder if Peanut showed Spot to Res when he visited.

  14. GarrisonSkunk

    A++ seems somewhat low for a superhero of Spot’s statue….shouldn’t he be around A++++++?

  15. Z24

    People going back to the archives in 3… 2… 1…

    • RJ

      incorrect. i began almost 2 hours ago :D

      • RJ


  16. xhunterko

    It’s okay, just pull a Marvel/DC time warp stunt and you’ll be good.

  17. Kitch

    Joey has it :3

  18. Keldor

    Gotta love that “…Uh-oh”.

    Especially since that’s more or less what happens in real life XD.

  19. Keldor

    Quick, Spot! Time to put those skills you learned at college (With a collie?) about reconstructing a lost weekend to use!

  20. Keldor

    The date on the card isn’t quite right. The last comic in that arc was published on 11/14, not 4/14. Though if you look at that first 4 a bit slantwise, you could make it into an 11…

  21. GameCobra

    Hah. Grape reviewed Peanut’s comic. That’s very cute.

    But even she knows this can’t be good.

  22. Salenstormwing

    I say we just relaunch Spot (Superdog) with a brand new continuity. It worked for DC.

    • Argent Stonecutter
      • Salenstormwing

        Well, look at the time… Let me reboot the universe again…

        It worked for DC. Woah… Deja Vu.

        • Fireclave

          Which is why Spot (superdog) is a terrible comic forever. Every time they reboot it, they make it worse. That’s why I hate the Spot fandom now, even though I keep buying the comics and trolling their message boards. So they should reboot it so it’s just like Spot classic, but better, so I buy all the comics I already own again, but not really.

  23. GarrisonSkunk

    …and Stripe was rescued by……oh, let’s say Moe.

  24. Perfesser_Bear

    Hmm. Has Peanut really lost the chapter, or did visiting Psycon with Tarot alter his past?

    • dontlookmenaked

      Well this is getting suspenseful.

    • Keldor

      Judging by the picture, Peanut just realized that he killed off Cyborg in the kidnapping story, thereby causing some continuity problems in the fattening snacks arc.

      • Keldor

        That or he realized that he never got around to finishing that arc, but that would hardly call for a retcon.

  25. Maxmice

    “Would rescue again”, well she’s your girlfriend, you better be willing to rescue her again!

  26. Draven

    Are double strips not being tagged as double strips anymore?

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Apparently not.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Done. Rick went into the GATE of MYSTERY and added the tag before the comic was released. Now he just has to remember to tell his younger self to do the same over again.

  27. Argent Stonecutter

    So, after reading a precis of Memento – this could get really creepy, especially since he’d have to shave his fur off to find the tattoo.

  28. illeatyourself

    Weird. I barely get what’s happening with Spot. XD

    • Gabe23

      Just go and watch Memento, by Christopher Nolan … great movie

  29. Eevee10

    I always wondered what had happen to that cyborg/dog?

    • Frank

      See? See? There’s more than one really persistent fan wondering!

  30. greybane

    so wait if he defeated the cyborg in the picture how was his memory erased by the cyborg; or is someone else behind this. this peice could be refering back to the deja vu scene and it could cause spot to retrace his steps in order to find out the culprit.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The innocent bystander who took the picture was only pretending to be a hostage, in reality they were an escapee from the Spooky Zone (a parallel dimension where criminals from Spot’s homeworld were sent to sit around for hundreds of years in a misty swamp playing banjos as punishment) who has sworn revenge on Spot’s family over an unpaid library fine. He discovered that Spot was on this planet after seeing a TV broadcast of one of Spot (professor’s) lectures. His super brain is able to recognize Spot even wearing glasses, and he uses tartan orphanite to erase Spot’s memories…

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Special Guest Star – Steve Martin as Dr Maxwell Bystander

  31. Keldor

    I wonder if they set up cameras in those old, abandoned warehouses so they can sell prints to passing by superheros, like they do on some rollar coasters (only $9.99 each!).

  32. Dreziehn

    i swear the comments confused me more than the story…and now i have NO idea whats going on

    • D-Rock

      What has me confused is the whole Memento thing. Not a clue what that is, so I’ll need to look it up.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Like Deja Vu with the “Guys and Dolls” arc. Wonder what the Venn Diagram looks like — People who know “Memento”, people who know “Guys & Dolls”, and people who know both “Memento” and “G&D” and people familliar with neither. I fall into the ‘know both’ catagory.

        • Dead Men Walk

          that came out as complete jibberish to me but i’m shure if i knew what those two movies were about i would understand completely

          • GarrisonSkunk

            In the original movie the main character has no memories after his wife died. He has a short term memory of about 10 minutes and takes poloriods and creates tattoos to remind himself of facts that the memory loss takes away.

  33. Raska

    Did Rick just make a Memento reference? Oh Snap!

    • Gabe23

      Oh yeah he did ! But the question here is, is he going to make all the arc like this ?

  34. Erikuto

    Did Rick forget to color the pencil? O_O

    • Frank

      It must be a white pen then

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Heh, I didn’t even notice that.

    • legendario13

      I have one of those…
      Not so weird actually
      for me, at least.

  35. GarrisonSkunk

    Now the question is will Rick attempt to duplicate the b&w film noir look of the remembering scenes while still working in Peanut’s unique art style?

  36. Jinxed

    I love Grape’s face in the third panel: ~

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Yup, its cute that she trully is concerned that the issue is missing/Peanut forgot to write it.

      • GameCobra

        That, or she’s concerned this RetCon isn’t going to be pretty.

        I sense long lost drama!

    • Gabe23

      gotta love Spot´s super-happy smile

  37. WastedSmiley

    Love grapes expressions! And thats quite a few issues peanut has there.

  38. bhPixelFire

    I am… confused… to say the least.

    Different theories as to what’s happenning.

  39. GarrisonSkunk

    You know, people make fun of his style, but you gotta give Peanut credit….he managed to draw the close-up of the picture exactly the same as the previous one, almost as if he had access to computers and scanners… ;)

  40. Argent Stonecutter

    PS: cyborgs aren’t robots…

  41. Alucai Vivorvel

    Oh hey look, I finally caught up. Again.
