    this shit is wack with poo brain! full retreat!

  2. Jerry says:

    Let the stalking begin.

    • George Spelvin says:

      I’m not so sure of that. She did leave her copy of his book on the stairs behind her. I don’t quite know what’s going on here.

      I didn’t figure Ben for being a “Double Life” fan.

      • Pearle says:

        I think that’s in front of the counter.

      • Jerry says:

        I think the Giant Flaming Heart makes it pretty clear. She’s just got to get herself together and she’ll be hiding in Ben’s shower in no time.

        His front door doesn’t even lock.

      • leslie says:

        well in a way he is living a double life. or at least trying to change from what he was before he came to templar. maybe he is trying to figure out how one can completely separate them selves into two different personalities, and then chuck the one he doesn’t want to be.

        • Hanna says:

          If you know how to make that work, lemme know. I’ve got a few things I wouldn’t want to be.

          • Wirrit says:

            Practice makes perfect, and the crossover between pet training books and cognitive / behavioural psych textbooks is amazing. You can’t change everything, but with persistance and determination you can encourage some pretty striking changes in yourself or semi-cooperative loved ones. The key is just to ensure you’re happy at each stage along the way, rather than doing nonsense you think you’ll theoretically be happier with later.

            This is probably a bit of a tangent off of where you were going with this, but in case you were serious. :)

  3. Garrett says:

    I hope this isn’t the last we see of Hypatia. She looks way too fun to be used once.

    • tricksterson says:

      Oh I don’t think that’ll be a problem. What I would love is if she started hanging around his apartment house and runs into freckle girl and they bond over him.

      • Hanna says:

        No tapping the glass, though. Getting to know anyone from the building would definitely count as tapping the glass.

  4. Braharajah says:

    Daaaaaang, girl got it bad.

  5. Dart says:

    Val looks like a puppy in the first panel.

  6. Jonathan says:

    Is she… masturbating?

  7. JL says:

    Dang spike you love your obsessed teen girls don’t ya?

  8. Chryso says:

    .. but for HOW LONG?

  9. ._. says:

    This can only end badly. (and hoorah, a fricking new page.)

  10. Raiser says:

    Oh, -lovely-. Not only does he write something she’s obsessed with, but he reads everything she does too.

    I almost expect she’d write a sappy ‘anonymous’ love story of some sort (involving a girl named Aitapyh and a guy named Nimajneb) and hide it in one of the copybooks he’d pick up.

    Just to show she CARES.

  11. PlutoniumBoss says:

    For REAL.

  12. DeeBeeAye says:

    This. Was. ADORABLE.

  13. Ziggy Stardust says:

    Ahaha! With Patti here we gonna have a problem!
    Valentine is what Reagan would have been if she wasn’t a woman and had nurturing instincts and things. He’s small-time Reagan.

    • diTaykan says:

      There will always be a Reagan. He just needs to blossom, land a job at the porn store, and acquire his Scipio.

      One Reagan, in all the world…

  14. Bellar says:

    Oh man, I just realized: Ben’s gonna find Patti’s highlighted copy of his copybook when he goes to pay at the counter there.

  15. ._. says:

    No. She will never be a good thing. Most of the people in this comic are not ‘a good thing’.

  16. xoer says:

    you know it just occurred to me copy books are kinda treated like hybrids of Comics and Zines in the mid 70′s
