Very cute that his superhero name and his couchpotato name are so similar. Analog and Backlog.

I think you missed an L in the superhero name.

I have a feeling that Lucas will get in trouble (maybe not this time, but sometimes soon) and Ethan will have to save him, maybe even sacrificing his life. And rebooting after that. However I hope we won’t have happy suicide spree.

Well guess he will just end up in the guiness book of records as guy with the most suicides …. wait what !?

I’d bet he will have a lives counter. And a way to restore them, but really hard one.

I think there’s a far, FAR greater chance that Ethan will get in trouble, being left alone in his apartment and all.

Ten to one says that Lucas has to cut his date short and run home because Ethan somehow got wedged behind a bookcase or jammed in the oven or something and couldn’t just respawn himself free.

Time to call Deathblood and see if he wants to co-op some shooters?

He is all the time complaining about the blood dynamics and the bullet effects. Not recommended

There is also the on-line coop option…or he could be playing Space Marine 2…if it wouldn’t have delayed until September!

I up-voted this for alerting me to Space Marine 2, and because it’ll be close to my birthday.

Comic error detected: In the first sentence of word bubble #3 in the first panel, the word “them” appears twice back-to-back: “Little do they know, I see them them”

The second “them” is actually a verb.

Them

1. To be oneself unequivocally and without scruples.
“They said «IT’S THEMMIN’ TIME!», and themmed all over the place.”

Honestly, I know exactly how Ethan feels here, it hits me at home. Those rare, elusive evenings where you don’t have any responsibilities, obligations, duties or responsibilities, where and when you can do whatever you want and can FINALLY just kick back and relax to do something you WANT for a change. You get all excited, looking forward to some fun playing with friends….only to be reminded they’re adults too now and spend their precious free time as they please lol On a brighter note, as Ethan said, there are still single player games, and the last few years we’ve… Read more »

I do like this, old Ethan would have had zany antics to try and convince Lucas to stay anyway to play. This Ethan has the maturity to segue into ok, single player only tonight. Yet he still retains his Ethanness

Hey, if the date goes well, Lucas might also be encountering a backlog, if you know what I mean.

I know in comics, most superheroes operate on a basis of being always on-call, and if they ever get a day off it’s like once a year, and they’re basically forced into it.

Has there ever been a comic character who took regular breaks, like “I don’t work the last Monday of the month, that’s me time”.?

Gaming buddy Zeke possible. Also possibly Offs Ethan if on a losing streak.
