Nate: Of course I give a crap! What was I supposed to do?
Aya: Cover her up, take her out of there, I don’t know. Something other than ignoring her and acting like an asshole.

Nate: I’m not fuckin’ Gandhi over here. I’m just glad I didn’t do anything WORSE.

Nate: Oh, hey Purvous. Welcome back?

Nate: She’s not — I don’t have a girlfriend, Purvous.

    YES YES YES YES!! That is all I can say HUZZAH for Purvous! I missed him =)

  2. Would Rose start haggling if she was there? Then again, $3 would be a good deal if you have a bitchy girlfriend you want to get rid of.

    Jesus christ, every time I see that wandering stare I get really weirded out. How the hell does a fictional character weird me out in a web comic?

      You mad a’ me?

      Truthfully, the secret of the creep-out is subtlety. His wall-eyes are in that uncanny valley of, “close, but inexorably wrong And broken.

        i’ve always wondered. does he see out of both eyes? can he control them seperately? and beneath the facade of stereotype, does he actually know more than he lets on? i’ve met some intellegent people who act like everyone else thinks they should just to fit in or game them for personal gain. is he one of them? probably not but its fun to wonder.

    How absurd! I don’t know how anyone isn’t as offended as I am!
    I mean, come on. She’s at least worth five bucks.

    To quote COD: Modern Warfare 2…


    (and “Bambi!”)

      “I swear to god, I saw a tourist with a gun!” Damn tourists and their guns… ><

      lol Anywho.. Back to the more important things at hand… BACON!

  6. Jim says:

    Even PURVOUS knows her family history — because now HE’S haggling “price”!

  7. Tia says:

    haHA! Go Purvous! Get Some!

  8. Demus says:

    No woman can resist Purvous’ manliness.

  9. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    as the adman said in Robocop… “I’d buy that for a dollar!” Though Rose would probably be worth more like $4

  10. Chipmunk says:

    Bravo! Always love to see Purvous in the comics.

    I’m gonna be odd and ask where the brick background came from

  11. Dr. Wonderful says:

    Hah, Callback is awesome!

    Nice to see his Memory of rose is better.

  12. Wes says:

    Three dollars? Take him up on the deal, she’s bad news.

  13. j says:

    Any chance we are going to see a printed version of the comic by the end of the year?

  14. DrufyB says:

    How come all the characters look as if their pupils have dilated…?

    • Nick says:

      It’s dark where they’re standing, so you can’t see the color of irises that well, and pupils dilate in areas with lower light anyway.

  15. qrsouther says:

    *Poorly Timed Purvous* could be an additional frame in future Purvous-related comics.

  16. Brendan says:

    I applaud his decision to leave the room. That was a desperate, fickle thing to do, and it was only done to get attention. She knows him well enough to know that it would garner negative attention.
