Also yes people from yesterday, your epileptic trees were dead wrong.

man did i screw up paulo in the laughing panel.

look at that body

i wasn’t even intending to steal the first this time, I didn’t check this page prior to posting so i totally forgot how wonky he looks.

Hmm, Whats Amaya up to?

And also spot the cameos =P

(Bah, I know them but can only name Liam >.<)

Edit- Wait, In the next page you have got to make her talk otherwise the phonecall wouldn’t make sense, are we finally going to see Amaya talk to someone?

I do enjoy the movie posters, as well as the continuity of the zombies one.

I have this vision of Amaya’s phone call recipients responding like people do to Lassie, except with total silence.

This is looking good. I wounder who Amaya is calling. But I’ve got an idea of who.

Steve-O June 11, 2010, 6:42 AM EST.

Comment ID #42630

I’m sort of with Megaket on this one. I think Amaya’s half of the conversation will be silent, which instantly tells you who it is. A tiny bit of thought (or caller ID) will tell you where she is, and you know what the time is. If you compare this to her shifts (which her friends seem to know, and apparently with good reason, hehe) you can tell how urgent the call is. And of course different people will expect Amaya to call for slightly different reasons. So there’s actually a lot you can discover when you’re rung by a mute tabby.

Yappy June 11, 2010, 7:05 AM EST.

Amaya never talks, yet the phone is being used, and I quote from myself, ” What?” but hey, I certainly called for so much gore it looks less like a horror and more like a joke, great job Taeshi

Comment ID #42665

I am amused by everyone who’s freaking out and saying “Amaya is going to speak?! OMG?!!?!?!?” Heh heh. My money is on the call being completely off-screen, or only being seen from the perspective of the person receiving the call.

Her character blurb suggests she’s not technically a mute, but speaks rarely by choice. Hm. I was going to compare her to another silent character that only speaks on special occasions, but it’s a rather unflattering comparison, so I won’t.

Jasmine’s face is funny in panel seven. Must take some skill to get that cross-eyed. Hope her face doesn’t get stuck like that.

Also, I am still not sure how Amaya (she just sells popcorn at the theatre?) had the authority to let Paulo and Jasmine in. And, no, saying that she’s awesome doesn’t count. I wonder if her family owns the theatre? That’s the only thing that makes sense to me.

@Who: I think your suggestion is more LIKELY than mine, but I still like the CONCEPT of Amaya’s friends working it all out from silence. Oh well.

At least I was playing with the idea. It’s quite amusing to see ten dozen people say much the same thing because they refuse to read the rest of the comments.

Anonymoose June 11, 2010, 10:22 AM EST.

Comment ID #42681

Well I think a healthy normal date could do Paulo a lot of good, to get to know girls other then Tess, who refused him and has little right to still be possessive, and Lucy, who I think needs to work on her own dependency issues before jumping from one “host” to another. She was using Paulo as a stand in for Mike, not much else, and he never agreed to be in a relationship with her, he was just being the good friend that his is, deep down.
Sure it may still tank and burn, but I hope Paulo opens up to this being more then just a conquest considering how poorly he felt after the past “conquests” and doesn’t listen to Dave’s idiotic insistence of needing a polygamous alpha male to worship.

I was thinking of this is a good comparison of Amaya to Maggie from the Simpsons. In the episode from the “future”, you KNOW she talks, all the characters mention her talking, but for the gag effect, it’s never shown to the audience.

Same here, Amaya can talk, but for the gag effect, all her speech will probably be offscreen.

hmm, you know what i’ve been wondering, is you know how some of the characters have long hair whiles others dont, would that be like a buzz cut or something? cause then Lucy and Michael would be pretty much bald, while others like.. Sandy, for example, would have actual hair, while Paulo would have this buzzed scalp and a huge puff of hair out the top/front of his head… strange?

Man I tell ya it was uncomfortable trying to sleep when your not sure what’s going to happen that night with those people! Thank goodness no one was killed in the act!

Comment ID #43095

Actually, it is fairly annoying. I think it’s reasonable if you say something new about the page or a joke in it - Shade made post #148, and yet still came up with something new - the unlikely yet plausible Morse code idea. It raises a little bit of a smile, and it’s an addition to the page, however small.

However, almost EVERYONE (myself included, erp.) has commented on Amaya’s odd behaviour. Saying you didn’t open the comments box doesn’t help. Read (unhidden!) comment #2; the last three lines. Someone mentioned the fact before, ergo it is no longer interesting - unless you have more to say.

Urgh. Sorry. My grumpiness is probably more me having a bad day than you being particularly in the wrong. It’s just a bit of a pet peeve.

@ Yappy: I saw this page when it was first posted (midnight for me) and thus was so tired I never saw the edit. I was at the bottom of the page on this tab and there was no need to scroll up. Opera has a visual tab feature that shows you the top of the web page in the tab lineup. I saw Amaya on the phone in the preview thumbnail, and I opened the tab to comment on it. I forgot to read the previous comments. Thus, the page never revealed the edit until just now when I checked.

How’s that for a counter-rant?

Amaya is calling somebody. There are several things wrong with this.

1. She’s mute, isn’t she? Or does she only talk when she feels like it? I think I remember her talking in the old series, but even so. It’s rare for her to speak, much less willingly on the phone.

2. Why is she calling somebody on the job? If her boss catches her making a personal phone call, don’t you think that would cause some problems?

3. Who could she possibly be calling? Probably Sue, I guess. Actually, that makes sense. It makes me think of the guest comic where Sue is all angry because of all the other minor characters dating the major characters except her, and she mentions Paulo going out with Rachel and Jessica before finally settling on Jasmine. That’s not a spoiler, as none of the guest comics are canon.

Second time reading this, and I just realized this is somewhat like how the first time I went to my friend’s house (said friend being a girl I like that’s a year younger than me). Both of us were kinda nervous because it was (unoffically) a date, we saw a horror film together, and ended up laughing at how stupid the movie (Amusement) was within the first few minutes.
