Author commentary

Veronica: Sue and Mike have known each other since kindergarten which is why Sue was heavily affected by Mike’s disappearance.. you’d think she’d be the first to pounce.

Yeah, but hitting the water at highspeed at that height is like hitting concrete. Ever belly flopped into a pool?

It’s rushing water, thus has much less surface tension, ergo the hitting it would be less damaging.

Actually, if you pay attention well enough, you’ll notice that the river really wasn’t the far down.

The fact that it’s flowing water means that he would just be bruised up a bit, rather than dead.

Does “Houston, we lost another one” refer to Mike’s emotastic angstyness?

Yes. Yes it does.

Depends on how he entered the water I guess.
David has already demostrated it was pretty deep, so if he entered in a tapered poition, it would break all surface tension.
Also, as Mythbusters has shown us, those rocks would have broken the surface tension as well, so at worst, he probably just got smashed on the riverbed xwhile the current dragged him along.

Thats Science. Apologies to the dead cat-girls family. :(

I have to admit, the way Sue acts in panel 2, 3, and 4 are a huge turn on.
Sue is my favorite, nobody really seems to worry if she with so and so or not.

And she really hot too.

Epic. Sue’s cute, too! Mike’s probably about as tall as Alec in that last panel.

wait whats up with the last panel? why is mike so ****** that she already woke up?

lolwut November 23, 2010, 6:34 AM EST.

Comment ID #135175

He’s ****** because she knew that he went missing and went through stress. Because that’s the kind of guy Mike is.

Man, this page is dripping with SueXMike love. Same with this whole scenario. Sue reacted heavily when Mike dropped, but so did everybody. Except that Sues reaction was in more of a focus. I know Mike is Sues friend, but friends don’t hug like sue is in panels 2-3-4. Well as far as I can tell.

Calm Observer December 28, 2010, 1:33 AM EST.

Even in panel 3, Alec is confused over Sues reaction to finding him intact.

Sir, if I may it was not magic, for I am a mage.

Mike really shouldn’t have been fishing. He should be hauling *** trying to find them.

@anonamis - meaning that Mike’s as withdrawn as lucy now

Anon May 19, 2011, 7:18 PM EST.

Comment ID #162334

Mike is an *******, fishing this whole time without so much as a thought of finding his friends. How an he even be okay, falling from like 50 feet from the air into water? Shouldn’t he be REALLY hurt, or something? :O

I don’t get the joke in the last panel. Did Mike leave, or something? I dunno. I know it’s making fun of what they would say on the Moon, but still.

First Lucy lost her mind over Mike’s disappearance, and now Mike is sinking into an emo abyss. It’s a neverending angstfest between them. When one goes down, the other usually isn’t far behind.

@NintendoSegaSonyGuy— Okay. What?! How is Mike an *******? He almost fell to his death TRYING TO SAVE LUCY’S LIFE. Yeah, a pretty cold blooded guy, doncha think?

Just because Mike gets in the way of LucyxPaulo doesn’t make him the bad guy. And I know that you hated Jasmine for the same reason.

If only we could have a dream sequence from Sue’s dream, showcasing deep feelings for Mike that she ignores. For Lucy’s sake. Oh, but it will never happen…

…even still being able to move after falling. Nothings impossible for him.
unless this is a tragedy(which it’s not).

NSSG still hates Mike even after his heroic effort(s)
like Thantos to Paulo

Damn he survives a fall and suddenly he gets all the girl’s affection. I doubt I’d get even a single hug if I survived something.

Mike is pretty smart. Knew to stay put next to the water instead of wandering aimlessly and even found a way to get food.

Mike and Paulo suddenly feel like Lucy’s parents. MikexSuexPaulo OTP XD
