I really love that sign on the fence.
I’d dig a print of that sign. No joke.
As would I.
I love Social Hygene. “We are trying to have a civilization here.” is my new motto.
One day, maybe, we’ll know what the silhouette graffiti means.
What silhouette graffiti? I think that was Watchmen…
Right? It’s been driving me nuts since book 1! :P
Man, yeah, someone mentioned it in the comments awhile back and now I see them everywhere!
I only ever notice them when someone mentions them. I guess I should pay attention to more than just the dialogue – I didn’t see the sticker last page either.
Biggs, I’ll give you 50 bucks to PUNCH EJ IN THE NUTS.
Now, I don’t know about giving him 50 bucks to do it… But I’m seriously surprised that his junk isn’t pulp by now from liberal nut-punching. He’s really had it coming for a while and it’s genuinely startling that he hasn’t taken one in the sack over the course of the ENTIRE COMIC.
I wanna meet these Social Hygiene people now.
Oh god the Report Crime sign is the best. I wish all signage read like this.
so, is it REC that is gutting this building?
This is one of your best buildings ever. I know how much you hate doing architecture, but you do it so well.
I love that social hygiene sign.
man idk why people rage at EJ so much, I love him.
AS a fictional character, of course. not as someone I’d want to meet on the street.
Kinda like Dwight Schrute?
can’t say, I never watched that show
I’m with you! He’s kind of violent and needy and a bit of a failure, but I find that weirdly endearing. He’s like, the very under-est of underdogs.
I’d say kind of is an understatement.
but yes, hurrah terminally stuped characters!
Because you are SUPPOSED to DO THAT.
EJ’s like some kind of idiot-idiot. That’s like an idiot-savant, except instead of freakish mathematical abilities or the like, he just gets a more violent brand of idiocy.
So, yeah, I’m with Maritza here. Can we take up a collection or something? Nut-punching for drug money?
“Let’s go kill us some bald-headed freaks. EJ! Go panhandle and call women, ‘Mommy’ while I go think of a plan. Yes, yes. Let me stroke my chin like so. Yes, yes. God, I need some smack. I would lick the dust off of William S. Burroughs’ shriveled, mummified testicles for just a little taste. Huh, social hygiene, neat.”
I wish I didn’t hate EJ so much…but I do. There has never been a fictional character that I have wanted to smash with 2X4 .. until now. Maybe my wishes of seeing peaceful Scip kicking ass and EJ getting stomped could happen at the same time. If EJ had a harsh word for Pippy I’d bet my last can of Bacon/Chive soda Mr. Zen would go to town.
I love the almost parasitic relationship both Elliots have now. I want to see why EJ is so desperate for Biggs and what might have happened to him. Biggs I know is a big boy and going through jail(which was stated in the past), I want to see why a cult would break him down. A single holed up shelter would probably screw the Jakeskins badly. Lets see why he is broken now over them assaulting him over his friend and EJ (And his own addictions)
I love EJ and his pathetic, adorable-because-he’s-fictional stupidity. He reminds me of the obnoxious third grader who wants friends, is too weird to be accepted, and then lashes out by being weirder.
Also, I like his sleeveless hoodie.
And that sign in panel 1 is one of the many reasons this comic is awesome.
“Social Hygiene” so 1940′s. “Report crime because you are supposed to.” Almost funny in its on way.
