#177 – Showdown

Fun fact: Trevor, Aya and Rose are some of the first characters I ever created. When I still wanted to do the next Ranma 1/2, Trevor was supposed to be my male lead.

How fucked up would that have been?

Nate: So your with young Master Dickweed now?
Rose (slightly ashamed): It was a storm. He was a port.

Nate: Anyway, I guess we should get going.
Rose: Yeah, take care.
Trevor (off-screen): HEY!

Trevor (pointing at Nate): You talkin’ to MY GIRL, dude?
Nate (incredulous): “Your girl”? What are you, some villain from an 80’s movie?

Trevor (striking a pose): Careful, man! I know MARTIAL ARTS and shit.
Nate (looks skeptical)

    OH PLEASE LET NATE KICK HIS ASS PRETTY PLEASE!!!!!!

    sorry for the caps but i’m just that excited ^_^

  2. Phil? says:

    Lol Trevor as Ranma? Something tells me he’d be making a ton of porn.

  3. RotSman says:

    Aw, hell…

    SHIT JUST GOT REAL

  4. I predict there will be punching, followed by Rose raping Nate right then and there.

  5. ThSaverior says:

    Please! Please, Nate! Punch him in his stupid face!

  6. Casa says:

    I love how in the last frame Nate just looks resigned. Like “Really? I really have to level this kid? Sigh.”

    • MCBromance says:

      hahaha he does look like that :] I wonder if Rose is going to deny that she’s his girl then Trevor say something extremely stupid and sexual (personal) so she knocks him out then leaves…fun times

  7. Kevink says:

    Am I the only one who kinda wishes the Nate from the “End of Compliance” story line was here? =p

    *Punch* + *Shattered Skull* = Lets get some cotton candy while the medics arrive =D

  8. Philip says:

    I’m betting it’s one of the two women that kicks his ass. I love the embarrassment on Rose’s face in the first panel!

  9. Dr. wonderful says:

    Bitch slap! Oh snap! Punk motherfucker ain’t worth a cap!

  10. Jim says:

    I predict; ROSE has an epiphany, sees the tick-turd Trevor for what he’s worth, and
    ‘Jap-slaps’ the little shit into next week!

    Last time I’d seen him wanting sex from her, she had a “look” like – it was becoming a chore! …I’d say she’s about HAD it with him!

  11. Los says:

    Yeeees. Yes. Of this I do approve. Maybe I’m reading too far into it but I think her face in the second panel says “I wish I was here with you instead”. Then again, its kind of a given since she’s there with Captain McTardo.

    • Khaos says:

      I totally agree. And in the third panel, Captain McTardo looks like he’s high, doesn’t he? Seriously. He looks high. Check it out!

      -Khaos

  12. BunnyRemix says:

    Hah. Just twist his ear and casually walk away. Gets ’em every time.

  13. DJ says:

    So, I just read through the entire series today (okay… it’s 1am, but still!). I’m digging it so far. Just thought I’d share that.

    Also, I’m planning on buying a t-shirt as soon as I finish recovering from the holiday season (and after I buy a Questionable Content shirt…. Sorry, Jeph got ahold of me first. Haha!).

    Keep up the good work! :)

  14. DiDi says:

    Please, please let Rose disavow him of that notion soon. Please!

    And if that doesn’t work, then Nate can deck him the jaw.

    On another note, I kinda like Rose’s metaphor. Her storm of raging hormones made her pick the closest port for relief from the rough weather lest she drown in it.

  15. Chrysalis says:

    BEAT HIS ASS, PINKY!
    BEE! -HIS!- ASS! (hits seat cushion with each syllable)

    then make sure to CALL AMBER LAMPS

  16. Marlon says:

    slow reactions, a need to impress the ladies and “martial arts” most likely learned from the movies he got his dialogue off. This cannot end well.

  17. iRapeLittleGirls says:

    xD I wonder what the ‘and shit’ part is that he knows.

  18. darkfiremast says:

    I say i do believe we are about to experience some dapper fisticuffs if i am not mistaken o_p

  19. illyria says:

    even if nate kicks his ass(which he will), there will be no victory for him, for he will have beaten an underage weak, lame,loser

    • Tyler says:

      He won’t do it. If he refuses to f@!& rose, then he clearly respects the laws concerning minors and adults, so unless he actually feels threatened, which I doubt would result from young Master Dickweed’s “martial arts and shit”, then the only one here who could kick his ass and get away with it would be Rose. There is my prediction.

      • Pashakitty says:

        I second your prediction, either that or he will try to attack Nate and Nate will simply move out of the way letting the little dickweed fall flat on his face. At which point it would be a great time for Rose to walk on him as she’s walking away from him.

  20. Bubbaclaw says:

    I think Nate sees the same thing I thought when Trevor started his, “I’m a Kung-Fu Master” BS. ‘If I kick his ass, is he worth going to jail for assaultiong a minor?’

  21. Rob Lopez says:

    Trevor is not even worth a groan and a sigh. That said, it looks like he’s gonna trip himself up any second. Martial arts and shit? Looks more like a drunk Egyptian.

  22. Harrowed says:

    NO, don’t hit him. Isn’t he a freakin’ minor? I’m sure he’ll clean out the gene pool all by himself, sooner or later.

  23. Lazy J says:

    -face palm- nuff said

  24. Weimann says:

    Well, since the storm has subsided and repairs have been made, it’s time to set some damn sails again. Because that port is a dump and it smells funny.

  25. Dickweed the Elder says:

    “young Master Dickweed”

    Dickweed FTW!!!!

  26. Rick Swift says:

    I think you should have the Vampire vanquish that dickhead.

  27. Greenwood Goat says:

    Possible future dialogue…

    Rose: Fair’s fair – you broke him, you replace him.

    Nate: Hey, he swung at me, I dodged, he tripped.

    Miranda: Same result. We go halves, Rose?

    Rose: Sure. Whose room?

    Nate: Hey, get your hands off me! Help! Abduction! Rape!

  28. Hornet says:

    Why should Nate react at all.
    It’s not like Rose is worth fighting for and the little kid she’s with isn’t worth beating on.

  29. Eurkos says:

    With Nate being as worried about age differences and going to jail over something fun like sex, I doubt he’s the kind of guy who’d beat up a minor, since he’s more likely to go to jail for that.

    Nate’s probably gonna just try to dismiss him, like he already did with the “80’s villain” line. If any punching happens, it’ll be Trevor punching Nate.

  30. BMeph says:

    For some reason, I think it’ll be funnier if Wednesday’s comic has Nate sporting a shiner, because,
    1) Dickweed really does know kung fu;
    2) Nate’s world is that Crapsack.

  31. Drake says:

    Nate is not amused. or frightened.

  32. Darrell says:

    Considering the guy only wants to go to the movies to see a Segal film, I’m betting he tries to break Nate’s neck and fails miserably.

  33. Khaos says:

    As Nate respects the laws about Minors and shit, he won’t fight Young Master Dickweed. However, if he did, heres how it would go.

    YMD: HIYAAAA!!! TWOAAAAAAA!!! OOOAAAHHHHHH!!! *Various Kung-Fu noises and poses*

    Nate: *Facepunch*

    Nate then goes back to his place and nails Rose and Miranda and the chick from food baron whose name escapes me. With his roommates watching. Because Nate is a badass.

  34. NF says:

    Nick, if you have any sketches of Trevor as girl Ranma, you must post them to achieve maximum hilarity.

    • Nick Wright says:

      I Know it’s a good joke line, but I just meant akin to Ranma 1/2 in the martial arts romantic teen comedy aspect. Trevor never fell into the Spring of Drowned Girl. ;-)

      • BriGuy says:

        Damn, and here I thought that Rose was Trevor’s girl form.

        In my mind, everyone’s girl form is a redhead.

      • Bill M. says:

        Of course not, he fell into the Spring of Drowned Dumb Jerk. Although, why he fell into that one, I don’t know. There were already 2 other bodies floating in that one.

  35. Battle Royal says:

    I love this scenario, and can actually think of 4 different things that could possibly happen.

    1. Nate punches the douche in the face. Master dilweed cries like a girl, rose comforts him, and Miranda leaves since he bullies little kids, and he goes back to work the next day bitching about how nothing is going his way, and Tracy finding that as an ample reason for angry sex.
    2. Rose stops the douche from punching Nate, and leads him away like a kid throwing a temper tantrum. He complains that she should have let him beat the crap out of the idiot making a move on his girl, and she will probably tell him he’d get his ass handed to him. He has a wounded pride and becomes possessive of Rose, and Rose wonders why the hell it had to be him she hooked up with.

    The next 2 are similar but different. The douche tries to hit him….
    3. and connects. We find out Nate has a hard time taking a hit, and that Rose can kick some ass. She drags him off of Nate and either punches him in the stomach or kicks his nuts. They break up, because of ass and douche combination being to much for her.
    4. and misses/doesnt hit him, but tries to do some karate moves. Nate makes fun of the idiot, and Rose takes him away in shame, feeling embarrassed for being with the twerp, while the master dilweed sees no problem with this and acts as if he fought off, and won, against Nate.

    I cant really see much of anything else happening, but look forward to seeing what happens next. Honestly this is the most excited ive been for the comic in a long time.

    • Swayze says:

      Nr. 4 I’d say seems the most likely of all your predictions. For some reason I think it would be outright cruel to let Nate be floored by this sad excuse for a human being. However, I’m not quite sure that Rose would actually drag Master Dickweed away. Should he actually miss, for some reason I believe the whole situation and the level of stupidity that Trace displays would cause Nate and Miranda to leave, with Rose quickly going by their example and leaving the sorry sod at the Carnival.

      Then again, maybe not XP

  36. The Negro Guy says:

    Reminds me of Showgirls: “Everybody got AIDS an shit!”

  37. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    Just ignore Young Master Dickweed; I have an ex-gf who is EXACTLY like this, and fisticuffs are definitely not worth it. Walk away, Nate, and show who’s the bigger man(and nail Miranda eventually, okay?)

  38. Ginger says:

    “Any port in a storm”. That’s our Rose, the Maritime Mattress. *^_~*

    I’m betting Trevor doesn’t actually know martial arts…he probably just knows some quotes from martial arts movies. Here’s one for him. “Put him in a body bag, Nate!” *^_^*

  39. Jimbomb says:

    Will Nate and Rose ever get together? He seemed kinda cold towards her.

  40. mercenary says:

    I it wrong that I would not only watch/read the hell out of that Ranma remake, but that I would pay money for it?

    On a side note, I would punch a puppy if I saw Ryoga wondering around lost in the background….

  41. Mike says:

    Just one swift kick in the balls, that’s all that would be needed.

  42. I can't enjoy your coffee says:

    Truth to be told, Ifind this one of the most enjoyable webcomics on ze internetz,
    having a large ROFLMAO factor.

    mmmyes

    Go on dapperly

  43. Oxford says:

    Technically speaking… Wouldn’t Rose be the “port”?
