This comic is for you. You know who you are.

Read Full Article

Yeah, that's pretty much me in a nutshell. Kudos.

Am I the only one that is so used to reading manga that I read these from right to left by accident EVERY TIME >_>

What's a goodo and did it shoot first?

Haha, love the Space man reference at the bottom! Keep up the good work guys

I get this occasionally. There was a time when I'd ask what a reference is from but that gets you a look like you just shat yourself so now I just smile and nod.

Sometimes you have to set boundaries. Not watching a single Star Wars movie crosses so many boundaries I can't count them all.

Nice Triforce, by the way.

It's not "a" Greedo, his name is Greedo. And no, he did not shoot first.

Ah, but WHICH Dune, one might ask?

I have seen Star Wars many times, and I don't recall what a Geedo is, or if it shoots first.
Was that one of the umpa lumpas at the end?

I also belong to the "I haven't seen Star Wars" group. I have seen the first one when I was 8, not finished with it, boring to death, never looked back, nor any of its miscarriages. And I'm happy for that, as I am for anyone who enjoys them when they see it.

EDIT: I've seen and read Dune and I love it.

Didn't anyone else see the tri-force tattoo on Erin's (I think that's her name) wrist?

Seen star wars, although unfortunately I was bought up more on the remaster tha the original. not seen dune beyond 5 minutes as a kid which scared me off. will go back to it eventually and hope to enjoy it

The sad fact of it is, that more and more kids these days haven't seen the original Star Wars.
This is why The Clone Wars (CG) was released. If Lucas doesn't do something drastic pretty soon his franchise may die.

Well that's another story for another day.
Nice comic.

Not me at all. If I'm talking to someone who seems like they would like something I've seen that's considered a "must-see" - and they haven't seen it - I might recommend it to them, but I don't take them to task about it.

Unless of course this happens:

...in which case all bets are off.

I get most if not all of the obscure references in these comics, its the humour that usually trips me up. Still I do like these comics and it is always a joy to see that a new one is out.

It wasn't until recently that I saw Indiana Jones and the Dollars Trilogy. Still on the list of things I haven't seen: Star Trek, James Bond, Rambo, Rocky, Friday the 13th, Dune, 300, and just about every famous movie ever.

So ya, I'm pretty much that guy in the comic.

Critical Moss is getting better and better. Certainly a Greener choice for webcomics.

Well. I've only seen two star wars films, Two indiana Jones films and a few others. I just act as if I've seen the entire series. Sometimes by reading tropes.

In the end, it's just a natural flow of the civilization. Only freaks like moi would rather watch a good movie from decades ago or even better - read a book or go see a play rather than sit through yet another hollywood explosions production so common today.

In the end it comes don to simple little thing. Are you more interested in culture or just cheap entertainment.

Dune isn't a must-see movie. It's a must-read book.

"Not seeing Star Wars makes you less of a person". Yeah, real funny. Maybe i'm not enough of a nerd to laugh at this, but somehow i doubt that's the case.

I guess that this particular comic is just not for me after all. Oh well.

CitySquirrel:

The most important one.

(I take this to mean the one with Patrick Stewart and Sting.)

CaptainCrunch:
The most important one.

I find it hard to disagree. (Oh, David Lynch...)

I used to be like that whenever anyone said they like RPGs and never played a FF game, the sixth being the latest installment at the time.

Is it weird that I've never seen all the Lord of The Rings movies? >_>

Sting was in dune? Well suddenly I wish to see this film

The common social faux pas...laughing at something you dont understand to keep up apperances...ill admit im guilty of it too sometimes

Hehe, Babylon zoo!

Oh, he's more than just 'in it'.


(I could only find a non-English version of the scene.)

edthehyena:

So true. I've never seen the film, and don't especially feel lessened as a nerd for it. I have read the book -- actually, multiple times for all six of them -- and I consider it an enriching piece of literature, period. The Dune series -- at least the three books by Frank Herbert that focused on the mix or religion and politics, rather than the mix of sex and politics -- is some of the best sci-fi ever written, right up there with the original Foundation Trilogy.

I like to pretend the ones Asimov wrote in the 90's don't exist...

What about it?

Hehe, reminds me of that Penny Arcade about WH Online:

At least I get these references right.

Keep up the good work. Where were the Sunday Funnies?!

Definitely one of the best. I don't think anyone can say this hasn't happened to them at some point though. Even just regarding life in general! =P

Kevlar Eater:

Yes, since about 30 issues ago.

How could you have not seen Star Wars?! YOU'RE THE DEVIL!

Also, Greedo never shot.
