Hey all you S*P comic fans. Did you just read the latest batch of panels Randy posted? I’m interested in reactions, though please try to use spoiler boxes.
I’m just… shocked. And pissed that Faye suddenly died. It just doesn’t seem fair that such a firecracker of a character should go out like that. Maybe it works that way in real life, but I don’t read comics for the reality quotient
PSST - Spoiler boxes near the top of a post can be read by people mousing over the thread title…
I wasn’t all that surprised by Faye’s passing. To be honest, I thought though that it was more likely that Fred would die all of a sudden. It’ll be interesting to see how far he’ll take this storyline, though.
I haven’t been reading lately, because the dial-up connection makes it distinctly un-fun, but can anyone tell me where I should start reading to make the most sense of this? Should I just begin at the beginning of Just Today or should I start at A Grip on the Situation or even before that? Help me, please, kind Dopers.
But that’s the best bit about S*P! Sure, trapdoor alligators, sex midgets and cornholing hillbilly trees are fun, but it’s always been the reality bits that make this comic different - Scotty’s suicide, Davan’s depressing job, DND nerds’ utter lack of socialisation - whistling-past-the-graveyard humour is better than constant zany.
