    Contact embarrassment already starting…!

  3. eliza says:

    so…waldo grew a beard and joined a hipster cult.

  4. genny says:

    Hmm, I know that kind of smile.
    I do not trust that kind of smile.

  5. Elk says:

    Manners, Heather Anne!

    Also love the shirt and Waldo’s necklace!

  6. Chris says:

    If I had coworkers like that I would really start looking for a new line of work.

  7. Sokkyu says:

    Here, this punch will really go well with those noodles.

  8. gibler says:

    Does that shirt exist? I want one.
    I always thought that message was funny. I can definitely see the aliens putting together one or two pieces of it, like the solar system, but the little figure-guy? With no context? And really, 8-bit biochemistry?

  9. Jonboy says:

    I love girls who dont mind having messy hair + eat noodles ungracefully. Reminds me of university days. lol.

  10. Mahmoud says:

    I want me one of those shirts please thank you.

  11. Cyanmanta says:

    If those three pairs of eyes were looking directly at me, I’d start running. ONE OF US, ONE OF US…

  12. ABYSchan says:

    The hipster!Waldo’s eyes are boring into my mind.

    I hope we get to meet Tuesday’s mom!

  13. Ted says:

    Oh my God yes I also want one of those shirt please very much.

  14. Kat says:

    Does that guy have glasses with ironic googley-wide eyes painted on them, I wonder? Cause he’s freakin’ me out.

  15. ChampionHyena says:



    dah dadadah da dah daaaaaaaaah

  16. DCB says:

    One of us, one of us, one of us….Cthulhu Ryleth Iya Iya!

  18. sisterscientist says:

    Simian-esque girl has fantasmic earrings. Nile? Or just awesome?

    Morgan, you are the cutest. You deserve your own goddamn spin-off.

  19. Chris C. says:

    I am also of the group who feels that bearded fellow with the glasses is staring straight into my soul and giving it a really awkward hippie hug.

  20. AstroZamboni says:

    Nthing the sentiment that Morgan’s shirt is the BEST THING EVER.

    Second page in a row to make me squee (I’m a man, and I’m secure in the fact that all of this squeeing won’t give me the gay). I’m falling in love with a comic book character. Sigh…

  21. JLeavitt says:

    omg they are totally gonna eat her alive you guys

  22. JLeavitt says:

    “Heather”, interesting name choice there Spike. I wonder what it could mean …

  23. Mary says:

    That is creepy on so many levels. This is why everyone working a job that involves contact with others needs to carry mace.

  24. Arsnof says:

    **joins the TShirt hoard**

  25. nanojath says:

    I would totally by the faux-Voyager message t-shirt with the “holla back” motif. Or is that a sweater?

    BTW your Poorcraft project broke $10K! Congratulations Spike.

  26. Arvid says:



  27. Tod Stiles, violent nationalist for Il Duce says:

    This is how scatological hazing begins.

  28. literatehyaena says:

    Everyone is preoccupied with the the dude on the left, but I find the eyes on that girl on the far right infinitely more terrifying. Her whole FACE.

    I feel really awkward just looking at Morgan there. Unprepared for this nonsense.

  29. Lukas says:

    Is Hippie Waldo wearing a Phrygian cap?

  30. Ubik says:

    Apparently I’m the only one whose visual cortex makes a mistake when looking at that stray hair on Terrifying Hippie Waldo and just sees him wearing a giant dildo on his head. Or maybe Templar just has some subculture that’s obsessed with wearing sex toys in utterly unorthodox ways?

  31. diTaykan says:

    Ubik: you are not alone, I see it too.

  32. Sammie Ray says:

    Can you find the paint brush in the girl’s skirt far left on the bottom panel? Or is that just me? o.O And Waldo is really very creepy…

  33. CitrusFreak says:

    Hippie Waldo is giving me nightmares.

    Girl on right looks like a troll.

    Seconding requests for shirts.

  34. Samtootle says:



    your comic still blows

    • Cat says:

      Haha oh hold on! Are you like one of those internet people? You know, the ones who think internet actually matters?


      Right here on Templar!

      Imagine! I’m just so tickled. A real live douchebag!

  35. Yarrum says:

    Dammit Spike, who left the gate on my nightmares open so you could see who lives there?

  36. Cat says:

    Please make shirts! Will buy immediately!

  37. Samtootle – The best part of this–the absolute shining awesomeness of your comment here–is that you had to scroll past 40 comments about how great the comic is in order to make it. Keep on believin’, Gaia kid!

  38. Samtootle says:

    AKSHUALLY. i didnt bother reading any of that tripe. and yes hun, im from the cc, i wouldve thought you had that figured. stalking u. watching u being a nigger.

    nigger nigger nailed to a wall who is the dumbest of them all.
    YOU ARE.

  39. Jane says:

    You know what would be handy? If you applied one of those ‘save page for later’ widgets to your comic, like they have on Smack Jeeves. I think those are pretty cool, and handy.

  40. Scott Bieser says:

    Having people like that around is a good reason to own a Taser.

  41. Salvar says:

    We must have the shirt. :D

  42. The Joker says:

    Neither EJ nor Pippy gathered so many comments in such little time. It’s like all of us have turned into the three creeps that surround Heather on this page, and she should treasure that. Scip…err…Ben to the rescue!

    • Holaved says:

      *has nightmares about US now*


      *is also curious as to whether above co-workers are, indeed, evil, or simply sport black holes between their ears*

      Oo! Epiphany! Maybe they’re why THAT’s Morgan’s work shirt?

  43. Dotcom says:

    Everyone’s talking about Waldo and Apegirl, but it’s the center chick that terrifies me. She looks like she’s going to beat the crap out of Morgan to steal her lunch money.

    …If she’s NOT being sarcastic, she’s gain 100 times more scariness.

  44. Dotcom says:

    The other two weirdos remind me of human versions the creepy unicorns from “Frank the Unicorn.”

  45. Holaved says:

    Thing 1 & Thing 2: DEFINITELY not all there.
    Lady in funky dress: Pure diabolic, or not all there. Hard to say.

    Though I do continue to wonder if they *aren’t* part of an as-yet unmentioned Templar subculture.

    Cheez. Where’s Regan when ya need a tour guide?

  46. Hanna says:

    In the first picture the… probably female on the right has facial features/expression that makes me think of the “ice hockey” player that had had his head bashed in a few times too many, Red Erik or something like that, from way back.

    And as for their approach, it makes me think they’re there to 1) try to wheedle something out of her or 2) sack her.

  47. Bekka says:

    Jesus christ, I can literally HEAR the middle chick’s voice dripping with sarcasm.

    I can’t stand people like that.

    Also, Waldo and the ‘tarded elf chick are equally scary as fuck.


  48. Lynnix says:

    I don’t hate you spike. I think you have me confused with someone else…

  49. wat says:

    I, too, think that needs to be a real shirt. Buy-able via your website. Yeah.

    Also I think I’m going to pretend the flanking coworkers are actually just balloons. They’re less disturbing that way.

  50. ThunderGun says:

    Oh that’s so frightening, her co-workers are pod people. Run Morgan, while your name is still your own!
