BEAR! XD

A talking bear as an intern (or whatever he does)...nice.

Daystar Clarion:
Ashley is not a girl's name! Stop belittling me! ARGHHHH!
I've met more guys in England called Ashley than girls, only the US seems to see it as a girl's only name.

/rant

I have lived in England all my life and I have never met a male named Ashley, is your name Ashley? I know a guy called "Ash" but never "Ashley". Because that would be effeminate, girly, sissy and blouse wearing. I really hope your name isn't Ashley now....

Wow! thanks for all the positive replies guys. The narrative and character thing is going well it seems. More to come plus video games stuff

Lono Shrugged:
Ha! Spider Jerusalam is in this.

hah almost but I wish, when designing the character I had second thoughts about the look but Grey dropped that name to get me on board with the bald/glasses look.

Aw :( He'll always be Spider to me.....

Yes. My name is Ashley...

Ashley is actually an Englishman. Hence the ... gender confusion of his name. I hope that makes you feel better... Ashley...

LunarTick:
Ah! A reference to the album "The Seldom Seen Kid" by Elbow. I... I actually like the song "the fix" better?
Ashley might get to be a personal favorite to in the future.

The fix has a wonderful french, dive bar/sleazy english bookie vibe and it's an excellent song but I like 'grounds for divorce's angry, anthem like riff. Duhn dun dun dun DUUUHNN.
My favourite song of theirs though is probably 'Weather to fly' which always makes me nostalgic for NE England where I grew up.
"Pounding the streets where my father's feet still ring from the doorways" beautiful line.

Lono Shrugged:

Spider Jerusalem is fucking awesome but the look of Clutch is actually inspired by Billy Zane in the (hilariously bizzare) horror film 'The Mad'.

Looks like they'res a bit of an elepant in the room...

with a bear.

Is that bear a Harvey Birdman reference? 'Cause that would be so awesome.

Anyway, great comic so far, I've loved almost every episode.

Points for Scary Penny (who needs to be a unrequited love interest for someone), Tri-force tattoo, and "...shrill, titless harpy." especially in the context of winning an award for incomprehensible rage.

Hey, I'm partially in the comic....>.> (The first half of my RL name literally means Bear)

Kalezian:
It is my belief that every office, everywhere, should have atleast one bear on payroll.

Bears are natures accountants you know.

But I'm not good with numbers....

I agree with all this. Except it is impossible for me to get nostalgic for NE England. Perhaps I could get semi-nostalgic or meta-nostalgic for England.
Well, it's an excellent album, anyway.

The complete randomness of the bear got to me xD

zombiejoe:
Scary Penny is now the best character in the show...ever.
*twitch*

EVER

I second this train of thought
This is my favorite web comic, ever. I'm serious.

HIGH FIVE!

lols

Has anyone else noticed that the standard quip made by an introduced character of shocking appearance is always the same?

"'Sup."

Great comic. Bears are easily one of the most awkward, intimidating, yet lovable creatures to place in a urban setting.

I don't see why; Bruce Campbell played a Guy named Ash, which I have heard was short for "Ashley".

Nothing Feminine about Bruce Campbell.

Little Miss Critical was the best joke you had so far besides the brosposion thing, and you totally missed a chance to work it! Agh! It was South Park meets Yahtzee, how can you make a joke like that and then devote the rest of your panels to unfunny banter and a talking bear?

I personally didn't find anything else with this issue funny. Ooh, the bear can talk. What a surprise to find anthromorphic characters in a strip we've already identified as being unrealistic.

Dang, I was starting to enjoy this then...

Look a bear! how random LOL!

Ugh, it wasn't funny when The Cleveland Show did it and it and it aint funny now either.

Although I did enjoy "shrill titless harpy", I shall have to remember that one...

So... whose is the Triforce?

I like Scary Penny; is she Japanese? Is she a ghost?

HEY its bear Grylls

Yes! Surge T-shirt! I love that drink!

This comic has now earned an additional point with me.

Litte side note:
The "Surge" t-shirt comes from the soda Surge, but originally it was named Urge in scandinavia where it first were tested. They changed it because it was to easily connected to sex. Norway is currently the only country still selling Urge.

I can only believe flights of fancy so far, so I'm glad there's some realism in here in the bear. I would never believe there can be a video game magazine without a bear on staff.

Hee hee. That bear reminded me of the deadpan basset on Game Dogs

And Scary Penny looks like Alma. :P

You know what's funny about the description of this episode? I once poked a sleeping carnivorous ape with a stick in D&D.

Could not resist considering the strange argument. Also this version sucks less.

There's never gonna be a greater team of random objects, phenomenons and animals making a cast than Cromartie High School, and the fact that the same is being attempted here... No, you fail. Now to read the rest of the series

Just went a wondrous, happy place. If this affects my dreams, you sir, are a genius!

Hell... I'd be pissed too if my name was Ashley :D
