Grapenut via negating Max from reality... :evil:

(no I don't really believe that)

Taunting an immature spoiled dragon is even more dangerous than taunting an ancient one. Poor Max.

Well ... this strip is simply ... AMAZING
3rd panel Max is a win, the expressions in second panel are awesome, 5th panel Max is another win and Max´s monologue is -again- amazing. This strip is really really good.
Thank you Rick for making it.

Now I wonder if hes talking about Grape here or Sabrina because while its been a pretty bad date, I don't think it really comes to the level of that kind of outburst.

or maybe it's a third cat we don;t know about, from around the time his ear got bitten.

also, Max probably actually saw some carp here, back at the fish market :3

Max has been shown up by Grape (not intentionally) ever since he first met her as a kitten. And Sabrina was probably similar, especially if she had her magic(k)al powers when they were dating. Of course he feels insecure.

Wow. Maxwell is really hurting here. He feels like he's not good enough for grape who never wanted things to get serious in the first place. I wonder if seeing Max like this, Dragon might reconsider the way she's acting.

Well, definitely I didn't expect Max making a scene. I wonder why is he so upset. Something tells me that he's not talking only about Grape here. Or maybe he's just overreacting.

So... this is the moment when comes a flashback? Or Dragon just excluded him because she didn't want him to be the center of attention?

By the way, his bump has disappeared. Maybe he's already drowning?

A lesson learned and the woes of a mortal being. Thing is Max they do know, they know cause they see mortals go through it and they understand, yes they have the power to do everything but the limits of that power is fairly strict. Just like she can't get Peanut to love her, nor can she change his feeling for him. but in his outburst, his true feelings comes out. It one thing to hit bottom it another to hit bottom with no one to help you back out. I feel for Max cause I know how he felt when you feel completely helpless at one point that you can't get anything done no matter how hard you try. But there another part of this story that hasn't been told and I am excited to see if it will follow that direction or will we see the high school love drama that seem to be playing out at the moment. In the end it would seem the direction on who will give up their happy ending is becoming clear.

Wow, well this is getting close to a guess of mine I made a long time ago...

Way to go Max! You managed to stop the Dragon and earn yourself.... something. Perhaps a bit of emotional growth?

Heck, forget Grape! I think I might be falling for you Max! :lol:

Maybe its the way its worded or the way I'm reading it, but it really sounds like it could be taken either way. Hes either talking about Grape and how hes not good enough for her, but its the whole "not just lose but sink to the bottom" line that makes me think its Sabrina, since its a bit heavy for anything that happened with Grape; plus it feels more like a I lost this person kind of line to me. However maybe I'm reading it wrong.

I feel bad for not able to recall who Maxwell puts me in mind of, but scenarios like the one Max is in is so sad since it's essentially what I love about characters like him. The poor guy just can't catch a break and feels so insecure, but he is trying, and that's what I love about him. (And I'm sure Rick does too. <3)

Oh my, poor Maxy I feel so bad for the poor guy. :(

Though on the other hand perhaps the dragon feels bad about what she did to Max cause I'd imagine she can hear everything he say, and she falls in love with him creating to potential for Dragwell? I know its unlikely but hey it can happen ya never know.

At fist it was for Grape or for another individual we never knew, since it's true that Max suddenly getting so mad seemed odd (but then again, he IS cuadrupedal and standing in front of a supernatural entity for the first time in his life, that could make a lot of other folks go bonkers!).

Maybe Brent is right and we are about to see some of Max's key points in his past?

Oh no, I'm fearing that this arc may be just to get back Sabrina and Max together. :?

He doesn't know that for sure, hes just speculating like everyone else. I mean its kind of obvious that is going to happen in some shape or form here, but he doesn't know for sure.

I did, Dragon clearly took his words to heart and calmed down, or she was shocked that someone would speak to her like that and stopped because of that. I'm sure its the first one however.

What are you guys talking about. I'm a total Grapnut fan, but I see exactly where this is going;

"Oh Maxie what are you talking about, you're good enough for me".
"I am?"
"Yes you are"

Then they get cutesie and the Max Grape ship( whatever the heck it's called) comes in to dock and the Grapnut ship is lost at sea. I've seen the movies =P

And then with the power of Dragon, Maxwell's sad broken bell gets restored and he becomes one of the bravest cats around that Grape falls in deeper love with.

Beauty and Beast stuff right there,yo. :3
