Payet “Pete” Best, the Beatle that wasn’t…
I’m reminded of this Non-Adventures of Wonderella strip.
Puns. And not particularly good ones. I didn’t know this was a fantasy recreation of The Tick.
Then I suggest you go read something else. Judging from the comments quite a few of us enjoy the creators style of humor quite a bit.
Personally haven’t been too impressed with the humor lately. That aside, the Tick is awesome. Any disagreement is pointless and wrong.
Why are you critiquing a great comic, whens the last time any of you have done anything near as awesome as this… but anyway love the comic guys keep ‘em coming.
About two years ago, I was part of a threesome. Good enough for you? It’s not a “great comic” if it doesn’t achieve it’s goal. This is, as far as I can tell, a fantasy/humor comic. The fantasy is fine, but the humor seems a bit lacking lately. “What gives you the right” you ask? I’M THE FUCKING READER. Sucking up and ignoring the flaws doesn’t help the people writing/drawing this. Criticism is not evil. It is important. /RAEG
Yeah, but you’re a douche, so fortunately you’re not the only reader.
And as hilarious as it is to listen to kids bitch and whine about how shortchanged they’re being with this completely free thing you paid nothing to see on the internet, we really don’t need to hear about the awesome threeway you had with your left and right hands.
The sense of entitlement is strong with this one.
As for the ‘criticism,’ it amounted to saying ‘shitsux.’ Hardly constructive.
You know, I’ve also been in a threesome. I can’t imagine having the rest of my life be so pathetic that that would leap to mind as a statement to impress people with.
“Hai guys! I’m like every douchebag in a Gisele Lagace comic!”
Remember that my criticism of your terrible life choices is important, Zero.
â€œHai guys! Iâ€™m like every douchebag in a Gisele Lagace comic!â€
By all means, bropiece. Tell us what our goals are.
I lost the memo.

Worry no more, Phil!
Also, keep up the puns. Nothin like a good old fashion cheeseball pun to make elitist twats squirm.
Hey Phil, lemme ask you right now. Would you be happier if I just sat in my computer chair here, naked, masturbating to everything you posted on the internet regardless of quality? You want me to praise you when you take a shit? Because if that’s what you want, I’ll stop offering my opinion and you can drown yourself in the uniform worship of your fanboys.
Bah, who am I kidding. If you try to stop me, the only thing that’ll change is the fact that I’ll start trollahn instead.
If your comic isn’t for the enjoyment of the readers, of which I am one, then don’t post it on the internet. Simple? Apparently not.
It’s perfectly reasonable to assume that you want other people to read it. It is perfectly reasonale to assume that this is a fantasy/humor comic. Your sarcasm doesn’t pass for a valid point with me.
I never said the comic was shit. I never said I would stop reading. I said the jokes aren’t up to the quality I saw at the beginning of the comic. Your fanboys jumping down my throat doesn’t offend me, they’re fans. It’s pretty much what they do. But when the authors join their legions?
You don’t like criticism? Cry me a river.
I’m perfectly fine with criticism, holmes. I just think it’s funny when a person tries to say what our goals are in a space they know we read and respond to.
As far as what I’d rather you do, I’d rather you PRE-ORDER OUR BRAND NEW GUILDED AGE MERCHANDIIIIIISE!
Actually, that douche shirt is awesome. I may very well buy one.
Thinning quote pyramid makes absurdly long shoutbox rants appear that much more intrusive…
OH GOD WE’RE MELLLLLTING!
Wow. Is it weird that after all these years on the Internet, I’m still occasionally find myself amazed that douchebags like you actually exist?
Clearly, he’s trying out for the role of Best in the live action version.
The Tick is awesome. So shish.
Like my grandmother always used to say, “stop playing with that!!”.
I mean, “if you can’t say something nice, go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut”.
It was never a complaint… I mean…
CORN! Lend me your EARS!
I think that the thing to keep in mind is that this isn’t your typical “joke a day” comic. It’s telling a story and tossing some jokes in on the side to spice it up, in my opinion. But, ya know, if it isn’t your cup of tea, it’s not. I’m enjoying the ride, myself. It’s not often you find such a young comic with such fleshed-out characters. Then again, I could be missing a meeting on this … are these new characters?
Yes. These characters have only existed in the stories you see here.
Buzzard, you sound like just as much of a twat as the next guy. Way to go spouting off that condescending “you kids” bullshit to complete strangers just because they have an opinion that differs from yours. As far as I’m concerned the collective “we” you speak of can go cram it with walnuts.
That aside, there hasn’t been an abundance of puns in the comic from what I recall. It wouldn’t be surprising if a bad sense of humor was one of Best’s character traits considering he’s meant to be an arrogant ass. It’s similar to how most of Frigg’s dialog mimics that of a foul mouthed frat boy.
So long, ya dick loving cocksucks!
Kinda reminds of David and Goliath, only with, you know, Best and Pluto and a million boulders to the face.
Okay, that’s just awesome. :) Here’s hoping someone throws the horns in the next strip.
Payet is not worthless.
USE THE STAR POWER
Looks to me like this is the Charge phase. We’ll get onto the battle phase in a bit.
Who is he, Gene Simmons? Or am I thinking of some other bassist that played an axe-shaped bass? Blackie Lawless? No, pretty sure it was Gene.
Anyhow, been reading for a while, this is a great strip, I really dig it. Cheers.
HIS NAME WAS YOUNG P. B. AND HE REFUSED TO STEP IN LINE
A VISION HE DID SEE-ETH
FUCKIN’ ROCKIN’ ALL THE TIME
HE WROTE A TASTY JAM AND ALL THE PLANETS DID ALIGN
(Keep it up, T, Erica, Phil! You guys rock more than Payet is.)
It makes total sense, but the lyrics are different. Mostly right but his name is J.B. and it was ‘A vision he did see of fuckin rockin… etc etc.’
Best keeps reminding me of a less likeable Bard, from Bard’s Tale, especially now that he has shown that he can actually be competent. If he can do that with any instrument, and isn’t just lucky enough to have a magic axe, then I have to respect his abilities. Not him, mind you, just his abilities.
Payet, mining for Heavy Metal, and striking gold.
And now, the Chord from Hell.
You know, maybe I’ll be able to put up with Best’s Duke of Douche-ness after seeing some glimmers of competence here. MAYBE.
Don’t make me regret this, Best. I’ll be watching.
This comic is so surprising only because so many of us have had to put up with them most worthless bards imaginable in the past.
That’s all very well if he can somehow TARGET the rockfall, but there’s a reason you’re not supposed to make loud noises in caves. I bet a rock hits Frigg just as she’s about to finish off Pluto, leading Mr. Douche to claim ALL the credit.
Wow, Payet being almost kind of badass was not a plot twist i expected. Don’t make me like you, you jerk.
Brrraaawwwnnnggg? Really BRRRAAAWWWNNNGGG? – Can’t we at least get a Keeerrrooow? or a chuggchuggachuggachugga or a meedlymeedlymeedlymeeeee! ?
“chuggchuggachuggachugga” sounds like a bass line, while “meedlymeedlymeedlymeeeee” sounds like picking. From Best’s stance at the end, it looks as though he just strummed the strings once. “Keeerrrooow” would work in that case, but there’s a reason onomatopoeia becomes standardized – a single strum of the strings really does tend to sound more like “Brrraaawwwnnnggg” than “Keeerrrooow”.
And that’s my over-analyzation of the day.
I’m not saying that the sound is wrong? I’m saying that Best really needs to piece together some more awesome attacks :D
This is the axe man doin’ the first maximum volume strum to let the audience know they need to shut the hell up and prepare to be rawked- R-A-W-K rawked- now, not the actual attack. He’s just making sure the sound guy actually knows where the “11” is on the volume knob before he cuts loose.
My b/f and his best friend were arguing about who had the better speaker system. I told him to tell his friend that his went up to 12…but he totally didn’t get it. hehe
So uh… turns out Best is actually pretty competent. Maybe the whole “Hero of Prophecy” thing actually has some basis. Sure, he’s still a complete dick, but at least he’s got enough skills to justify the arrogance.
I was wondering why no-one had made a “bringing the house down” pun, then noticed it was in the alt text. Well played, sirs and madam.
I almost made a Guitar Hero of Prophecy but I though it was little weak.
The roof! The roof is – Nevermind.
The last panel was too crowded for me, and I had a problem realizing what was going on. Then I realized it was the rocks falling and all that stuff. Best is a douche.
Looks like the interweb hero’s have arrived. “Someone is wrong on the internuts? This cannot be left uncorrected! To the chump mobile!(Their moms car)
For the record, I’m loving it. Greatest show on earth.
Sooo..an observation I’m not sure if people have made. Puns are best WHEN they’re blatantly awful. I have trouble thinking of a pun that was funny because it was “good” rather than one that was funny because it was groan-worthy. True, there’s a limit to how bad a pun can be before it stops being funny, but for the purposes of this comic, lame puns seem to fit right in with the humor expected, ESPECIALLY from Best. He’s practically the avatar of lame.
And yet, surprisingly, the man can pull a pretty damn effective attack out of nowhere. Looking forward to more.
Duh! Of COURSE the axe is magical. Why else would the slashing weapon have strings on it?
