Hmm something tells me that Paulo’s trying to decide whether or not that statement should count as a compliment.

Loving Mike’s range of facial expressions in this strip, especially the sudden transition in the final two panels from :”Oh, hello, ladies.” to “OHGODPLEASEDON’TKILLMEEEEE!!!” I find it highly amusing that he’s the one stricken with terror while Paulo seems to be rather unaffected by their blatant rage. Then again, Paulo is decidedly more oblivious than Mike.

Eager to see how this boils over in the next strip!

YES, Mike is back! And I’m glad the girl’s entrance didn’t involve physical actions, just verbal. Refreshing for Lucy, haha!
I think I love Mike and Paulo as bros, nothing more than that, but for some reason even though they conflict it’s like the right kind for some fun bromance, lol.

I don’t think jessica or rachel really thought their plan out. I mean, if word got out that jessica just screwed some guy in a public bathroom on the first date, her reputation would probably take a pretty solid hit. Same for rachel, in the backseat of her car in an unused drive in.

And they did this to get back at a person that has a history of messing with people, the whole thing begs of horrid retaliation. Paulo on the other hand, is too stupid to even know what he did wrong.

Tess is far too much of a lesbian to care about Paulo. She should be worrying about other things. Lesbian things. Like being a lesbian.

I’m sure I’m not the first to ask this but, is Paulo pronounced POW-Lo or PAW-Lo?

And Mike joins the picture once again, woo! Loving his portray of expressions, though I bet the last panel has to due more with the fact of his sensitivity toward sound rather than the scare factor. Of course, he’s caught in the crossfire, so who wouldn’t be fearing for their life?

Y’know, I was beginning to like Paulo, then I was reminded how much of an *** he is. Get’em girls!

Ah, and what the hell is going on in the incentive comic? I missed a few pages, but I know/don’t know enough to question why Lucy is letting Liam get so frisky,

i hate when a terms got two different etimologies in another language.
So in this case Lucy and Tess are calling him a Gigolo, but i think that the form “man *****” get a more offensive tone, right?

Fun times where this is going, though the page feels a bit weird since several of the speech bubbles don’t actually have tails. Or whatever you call ‘em. I can tell who’s supposed to be talking, but it looks a little odd. It’s hard to tell, but it almost seems like Paulo is acting like a bigger jerk than usual, but I’m probably giving him too much credit. And poor Mike is caught in the cross-fire. Hahahahaha! Can’t wait to see what happens next.

Incentive: I’ve come to the conclusion that Lucy just isn’t as interesting when she’s not a psychotic mess. C’mon, Lucy, don’t get all sweet on us! =P

quick comment June 21, 2010, 10:22 AM EST.

Comment ID #47209

I still find it strange that people are like “Oh I see Paulo’s finally going to get what’s coming to him.”

What’s coming to him? What exactly has he done wrong? He never expressed an interest in dating Lucy. He was just there for her when Mike wasn’t. He played the part of the concerned friend and comforted her. Whatever ‘claim’ she may think she has on him is completely in her own head.

As for Tess? Well it’s the campfire scene from Intervention all over again (Chapter 45, Pages 7 & 8). As much as she has admitted to liking him. Perhaps loving him. When he tried to act on her words, she pushed him away and told him it couldn’t work. Repeatedly. Paulo tried SO hard to make that relationship work. And she would have none of it. So in my eyes, she has absolutely no claim to Paulo either.

He never initiated anything with Jessica or Rachel. They both jumped him, and he was nothing but a gentleman with Jasmine. Where precisely has he gone wrong? What evil has he committed? I’m honestly curious.

You want my prediction? The two girls will yell at Paulo, and he will respond by pointing out their flawed arguments and take the wind completely out of their sails.

Love the couple of randoms during the third to sixth panels running away from the impending doom approaching.

I was missing the good old times of Paulo being such a jerk to Mike… Poor Mike seems so frustrated. Good thing Paulo is getting a bit of karmic retribution for it. Ok, it’s going to come from something unrelated, quite undeservedly and totally over the top; but karma has his ways and he was being a jerk there. :p

THANK you. I’ve been thinking the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think Paulo’s some sort of saint, but he really isn’t a bad guy here.

Lucy’s had more chances at him than I can count. Tess was the first girl he ever really and truly wanted to get serious with and she rejected him. Now that they hear he’s been with other girls they’re ****** at him? What, he’s supposed to just keep hitting on Lucy and getting punched? Or perhaps he deserves to spend his life chasing after Tess, hoping in vain that she’ll realize he’s worthy of more than friendship?

Both girls need to take a longer look at their own actions and then decide if they have any right at all to be mad at HIM.

The best part of this strip is Paulos face in the end, hes like…yeah…so? Being a manwhore aint that bad and i dont care if you consider me one or not, I’m getting laid, and i dont have to worry about it until i get a contaigious desease. And what do you care? You Lucy are a stuck up virgin who cant get this ***** to love you because you act like a guy, and what of you Tess? You had your chance with me but your freaking morals stud in the way of our relationship, as too Pedo to stand, besides, you left me and thats final…So having that in mind, I dont give a camel’s dung pile about you two screaming at my face and almost making mike ears bleed, telling me im a manwhore…so with that in mind i keep this indifferent look on my face…..
Yeah…thats what Paulo’s face looks like…pretty neet huh?

I predict next strip they start bitching at Paulo and at the last panel he stops them. Then in Fridays update, he explains everything from his logical point of view why he isn’t in the wrong and they just stand there, silent unable to fully process the fact they are the ones in the wrong.

I wonder if Mike is going to be present for this conversation and make some comment about Lucy being over him, or possibly throwing Tess’s speech from the vacation arc at Lucy when she whines. It’d be interesting, but I doubt he’d do it unless he got really angry as he’s too much of a pansy to really do something like that.

I just realized something, while Mike didn’t see them coming, but Paulo probably did, so the yelling was a complete surprise to Mike, while Paulo had the time to prepare for it.

Lol. You know, in panel six, I thought Mike was reaching towards Paulo, then suddenly, MAGICALLY-APPEARING MATH BOOK! XD

THEN, in panel eight, I thought Mike pushed Paulo over. XD It wasn’t very clear to me that he was merely using his locker both times.

Also, things are heating up. Mike is scared to death and now deaf while Paulo wonders what’s going on. XP

Comment ID #47564

@ 8feet: Doesn’t really look like it IMO; I get the feeling Lucy just doesn’t want to screw up Liam by constantly imagining that he might be Mike, so she wants to take the time to forget about Mike as a possible partner on her own.

Besides, Mike shot MxL down pretty thoroughly. If it happened, it’d be forced, and Lucy doesn’t seem to want that.

Also, this has nothing at all to do with my being a MikexSandy supporter (I mean it, even I can tell that’s not going to end well, but I can still hope).

I think it’s a pretty good incentive. Liam’s a bit gay but it’s well written and the colouring is surprisingly neat looking. The ending isn’t too crazy but it’s fitting and left me satisfied.

Oh please…. they both want to kick his ***? I thought Tess was way cooler than that. Two older girls set their sights on the poor kid, he never stood a chance.

Honestly, if he had resisted those two girls, I would seriously think he was gay.

And I am gay.

So you know, it would be an informed judgement.
