That last panel reminds me of that scene from Bill & Ted.

Why must the plot move at such a glacial pace? *sigh*

I miss the days when I was archive-binging and things seemed to happen a lot quicker.

Slick could you please just do something plot-relevant. Talk to any other main character, for instance. Get off the damn hotline and talk about your existential crisis with Buddha or Jesus or something.

I dunno if this would help, but I recommend rice boy or achewood as high-caliber webcomic alternatives while waiting for sinfest to build up a buffer. Oh! or octopus pie.

Yeah it's my least favorite thing about Sinfest. I wish Tat would dedicate a week or two to a story arc, have a few one shot gag comics, then go on to another story arc. Of course each story arc would combine with the others to tell a complete story. The way Tat does it is frustrating. Makes me wish Sinfest fanfic existed so I could at least read stories about the characters while I wait for their creator to actually do something with them.

On topic, this comic is funny. I loved Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Find other comics to archive binge in the meanwhile? =3

I can highly recommend Digger, by Ursala Vernon. Very Pratchett-esque in some ways (she cites him as an inspiration in her writing style), has won a Hugo, and, best of all, is FINISHED! When you finish the Archive binge, you're done with the story!

I'm just gonna weigh in as someone who doesn't mind the slow pace. Not to argue, since it's all just personal preference, but just for contrast. Cheers.

Yeaaaaa, Sinfest isn't exactly a plot-driven comic. It tends to go between slice-of-life, soapbox, and gag-a-day with an occasional story arc thrown into the continuity and updated on the same whim as the rest of it. Story developments are naturally going to be quite slow, and often just undertaken to facilitate a change in the overall flavor of the characters' interactions.
