She picked it up and opened it, then stared into the chambers.

I don't know if you've ever seen a shotgun, but it's pretty obvious whether it's loaded once you do that.


being able to tell if a gun is loaded by picking it up and checking it is obviously a mary sue power blaaaaaaargh

Give him a break, he clearly didn't notice the shotgun


no unions here, commie!

Ok, I know that my opinion is very understandably not of major importance since I'm mostly a lurker, but I'm getting into the serious disappointed range. Like, I know he's a representation of a thing, but can slick maybe represent how a person can grow and change? You know, just because we keep seeing him start to? And seriously, what IS the point of it not being loaded? I don't even begin to get how that's a good plot point in the context of the comic.
I do hate to whine. I know I'm no a regular, but I am an old reader (14 years-ish? Somewhere around there.) I was starting to get excited about the comic again, but lately I have no idea where it's going.
Love the keeping on plot, but I wish the arc made some sort of sense in the way of character development.


honestly, I think Sinfest's biggest problem is that it's still trying to be a newspaper strip

It's finally sinking in & Slick is finally showing some kind of reaction. Hallelujah.

Only if it's a bear gun.

I fall asleep in my rocking chair cradling a loaded gun in my arms and cooing at it like it's a baby

every night

also there are two more loaded guns stowed under the chair

I don't recommend trying to wake me up in the morning

Well damn... yeah.. completely missed that... and honestly I said the mary sue thing because it was the first thing to pop into my mind and it rhymed.

The Boom Room

Uh Oh

If we are meant to take every single image in the strip as meaningful, then the box full of shells has not been touched and some other shells are still on the floor which means Px has no idea what she's doing.

But considering that she was aiming the gun at several different targets, she clearly had the intent to harm.

She's not the only one a bit clueless on the guns, considering it has been drawn as a pump action shotgun that now apparently loads through a breech.

With a disappearing scope.

That really depends on your living situation.

When I lived in Chicago, I lived one and I kept ny gun loaded.

considering the scope, I thought it was a rifle.

Never, ever, let your gun
Pointed be at anyone

Whether or not it loaded be
Matters not the least to me


You don't play with guns - if you aim at something, the general consensus is, you're going to fire the weapon and hit the person / animal / object at the other end.
Any decent cop, witnessing the showdown, would have drawn their weapon on the Fembot. Probably opened fire, too.

Okay so Px most likely didn't know it wasn't a loaded gun considering fembots don't exactly get programmed with gun knowledge and in her haste to pew pew someone. So I'm with Midnight here that this comic doesn't exactly clear her intent, it just shows that Slick wasn't in any real danger (but of course he didn't know that).

UNLESS Tat shows in a future comic that she did plan this. In that case what I'm missing is the why. Addressing Slick didn't seem like her original plan, considering she was after the Devilcorp's HQ first.

Yay for Xanthe being there though. Very Happy

Yeah, Pxsomethingsomething isn't off the hook, but Yay for Xanthe being on the case. And the two main bits of information - the empty gun and Slick's recognition and offer to "fix" Pxsomethingsomething - have yet to really turn into anything yet. That doesn't mean they won't, just that... well, despite the whiplash we're all getting from how fast the plot is suddenly moving compared to normal, this is *still* Sinfest... ;-D
