SDC - The Boyfriend 2 by C-quel SDC - The Boyfriend 2 by C-quel
Well it's official, The Boyfriend hasn't exactly earned DD's Seal of Approval, but at least CC is still standing up for him. Then again, it does seem strange that DD is being a little shallower than usual for an apparent non-issue... but to find out more, you'll have to tune into the next comic... ;)

Also, points to whoever can guess what's going on in Panels 2 and 3. ;)

Next: The Boyfriend 3

If you like what you see, please consider tipping me with a purchase of the high-res version -- it funds my efforts AND it's dirt cheap. =)

haha, Panel 3 is kind of a biology lesson:

DD = giant squid
CC = female angler fish
The Boyfriend = male angler fish

Haha I love the little guys word bubbles

hehe, originally The Boyfriend was going to be completely mute, but I figured the pictograms would offer a lot more opportunities for humorous references and visual puns. Wait till we get to the Reality TV arc, and you'll see what I mean. :3
ok, dangit. I know what's going on. Panel 2 is the classical image of giant monsters fighting each other for the city they wanna destroy. In this case a godzilla with hyper beam (maybe Mecha godzilla?) vs Mothra.

Panel 3 I only know because of Sandra and Woo. The Male anglerfish is unable to feed itself. it's only purpose is to find a female and mate with her. For that he bites her and secretes and enzyme that melts his lips onto her body. The male slowly disolves then. He loses his eyes heart and brain until not much more than a pair of gonads is left of him.
The visual message is the representation of how a virus latches onto a host cell and injects it's DNA (or RNA, w/e) into it and turns the cell into a virus replicating factory. Alter the paradigm so that the host cell is a female that wants to have a strand of DNA code injected into it by the viral 'male' to produce offspring that has both of their traits and you have sexual reproduction in a nutshell (more or less).

Oh man, well technically the guessing contest is over and the prizes divided out, but I'm definitely tempted to give you a consolation prize just because of the thoroughness of your analysis. Great job! :D

And yes, biologically-speaking that's both accurate and as such perhaps a little disturbing, but that's life (literally). XD
yeah, I just saw the comic and didn't scroll down. I replied for trivia, not contest's sake :P
Oh, and very cool comic and conclusion (part 3). I love brain teasers that are historically accurate :)

Oooh, and honest too. That does it, you're getting points now. ^___^
And if you don't like them, feel free to reinvest them back in the purchase of two high-res comic strips, lol. :D
[sometimes the high-res versions reward the reader with easter eggs that are hard or impossible to see in the standard versions] :3

And thank you, though #3 isn't actually the conclusion. The Boyfriend arc is actually an 8-parter, so we're barely halfway there. XD
[and sadly, yeah, some of that is historically accurate... doesn't make it any less unnerving to draw] ^^;
...ooh, but if you wanna give me a consolation prize, I'd be happy with knowing where DD rates my little Duskrunner ([link]) on a scale of 1 (Featherweight) to 10 (Big Mac) :D
The small fry has no idea what is going on XD
