I always wondered how to pronounce "cha-ching".

When did Slick become such a bummer. Ten years ago he would have jumped right on this bandwagon

Slick has 'matured'. He now has a soul crushing job. He finally realized that the girl he wanted has no interest in him. Everything he has tried to do for years has either failed miserably or backfired in humiliating ways. I'm impressed he still gets out at all. By this time, a lot of people would be reduced to fermenting in their apartment hoping the world would just leave them alone.

Fortunately Squig seems Maturity resistant and can keep slick active!

I think when he gets a Sword to backstab it. You would have to chain them up at a Wall so they have to sort things out.


But Fuchsia should be Crims dark side? O_o; Did i missed something?



I think Slick isnt in the Mood anymore to make Jokes every 5 Minutes. He had a hard Time after all in the last few ....
Has anybody a Idea how much Time has actually passed? If this was the first Paycheck that they got, this means they worked just for 2 Weeks or 1 Month. Not sure how it is in the Sinfestworld, cause here we get our Money once per Month, but i just learned a few Months ago that its totaly different in other Countrys.

When Slick took this job at the factory he was still leering at women, using porn-sites and generally being much of his old self. Now pretty much all of that has stopped, which gives us an estimate for how long it's been. Most of the mannerisms that Slick displayed were subconscious habits (particularly eyeing-up girls, not only habitual but instinctual), which tend to be broken after about 60-70 days of motivated concentration. This is too long for normal companies to not pay employees, but there are some jobs in the public-service sector, that pay yearly. If the Devil is now in bed with Uncle Sam, he could have conceivably placed his business into this sector for tax/benefits/corruption etc. That or the Devil's just a dick who doesn't pay his employees.

Upon writing this I realised Tat's broken one of the first laws of habitual psychology: bad habits can't be stopped dead, only replaced with more desirable ones. Tat hasn't done this. Both with the comic itself and individual characters, Tat's removed all traces of what he previously disliked about his comic, but hasn't really attempted to fill that void. People like Slick can't end all his traits in this amount of time without filling it with something, but nothings come up. Writing poems, chasing girls, even running for president all used up the majority of his days, but even if he worked at the factory 10 hours a day every day of the week we'd still see something from him? He no longer feels real because there's no explanation for what he's doing in-between strips, he only does what he's seen to be doing.

Good point. Although I suppose we can assume he spends some time browsing the internet and probably missing 'Nique, but that's still not a lot by itself.

Filming the Sambot vs Dragon fight was the most life we'd seen him show in a while.
