#162 - Look Back In Anger, Part Three

#162 – Look Back In Anger, Part Three

If you’re wondering what Steve’s shirt is about, allow me to shed some light.

In other news, there’s a new short video up over at That SciFi Guy with some reflections on the upcoming Green Lantern movie, and the internet’s reaction to it.

Transcript

Steve: You’re home early. You little lovebirds not chirping in harmony tonight?
Nate: At least I’m getting some. Thought you were heading to some concert, anyway.

Steve: Can’t afford it. They cut our hours at work. On the plus side, my Blood Elf Warlock is now up to level 55.
Nate: Shit, they’re trying to PROMOTE me.

Steve: You act like that’s a BAD thing.
Nate: I’m just not into the whole grocery scene, you know? Something big’s going to happen for me one day, but until then I’m just pissing in the wind.

Nate: Now, get the fuck off my computer so I can jump in on that raid tonight.
Steve: When you say, “something big,” I take it you’re referring to a quest item.

  1. Yeah, i can be a little “Fuck work” sometimes. Can’t wait until I can do comics full time.

  2. Dr. wonderful says:

    Of course he like turtles…turtles are FUCKEN AWESOME.

  3. If there was a backing music track to this strip, it would have to be the theme music from the Guild, yes?

  4. surachinen says:

    lol. wow crack….the bane of us all. its the one thing me and my girl have in common. we raid stormwind as date material

  5. Dan says:

    Wow, I feel like an idiot. I had to go actually check if The Burning Crusade was out three years ago. Didn’t realize that it’s been that long already.

  6. Tony H says:

    Hello I’ve been following the comic for a while now and I have to say I’ve enjoyed it, keep up the good work. Sorry it’s taken so long to finally comment on one of these apparently I can procrastinate at anything :).

  7. Brian says:

    Love that t-shirt. Took me a second to get it. At first I thought Zombie kid was Master Shake with no straw.

  8. comichero says:

    Hey quest items are important dang it

  9. Mentalmage says:

    Holy crap someone from Natherzim reads this? Prob horde though :P

  10. G@tor says:

    It wouldn’t suprise me if Steve’s main was LEEEEEROOOOYYYY JEEEEEEENKIIIINNNS. He seems the type to intentionally destroy a raid for the lulz.

      I wondered for so long who Leroy was, I only recently learned that he’s famous for what he actualy did. I always asumed he did somthing epicly awesome, not epicly crazy.

  11. Kashell says:

    I was wondering how long it would take for a wow reference to make it in here. Former WOW addict with way too many 80’s. Thanks for the good comics and damn good story.

  12. The kingpin says:

    His shirt seems odly straight to be tucked under his arm. *raises eyebrow* Jokes Good one liking the story plot so far :D.

  13. Simon Gledhill says:

    Love it. I just stumbled across your comic from a link on Menage-a-3 … read a few, then clicked first and have spent the last hour or two reading the lot (and many of the comments).

    I’m a fan of QC – but and I see parallels in TG, but frankly, I think you have an edge here that QC used to have but has lost lately. Stay on the edge!

    • Nick Wright says:

      Thanks, Simon!

      To be fair, TG is a lot more compressed as a story… I don’t have 1800 strips or whatever Jeph is up to these days, and I’m not planning on milking it forever. It’s easier to tell a story when you know you have a set beginning, middle and end.

  14. Ein says:

    Nice. I like this comic. I have enough hate for each of the characters to be able to laugh at their fail relationships without becoming stomach twisting sick like I would if a character I LIKED acted like Rose.

    I love this comic because I hate everyone in it. It’s a complicated relationship.

  15. DruffyB says:

    Don’t look back in anger…
    I havent heardyou say…

  16. Chipmunk says:

    I hope that someday I will get a promotion that I am excited about. I have literally never had that. I got a “promotion” last week that basically consisted of a fancier title, three times the responsibility/stress, and exactly the same pay. I was like…..uhh…..woooo….I guess…

  17. Sabina says:

    Thank god, at least they’re horde.
