If not Lucas jokes about the jokes joking about a joke then Andrew can joke about the joke on the joke over the joke about the joke off the joke.

Ethan you adorable cinnamon bun, I am glad you’re back.

Also, might just be me, but he seems decidedly more intelligent. Not any wiser per say, but his levels of goofiness that only someone of previous Ethan would have done seem for the most part a thing of the past. He is a much more genuine person now. Still quirky, and makes dumb decisions, and clearly takes a while to learn, but still…

Well he wanted the characters to be a bit more realistic, and Ethan before was an over the top comic book style with how silly he was. Which is kind of ironic since it is a superhero comic now, but still more realistic in that way.

Old Ethan build a sentient robot out of an XBox (the first one not even the 360 or one), upgraded him and repeated this process (so we can assume it was not just a lucky coincidence), future Ethan build a time machine and you still call him silly and less intelligent? Wow I must be really dumb then. And my memory might be wrong but I think not even old Ethan struggled this much with women.

I think what Entercoven is saying is true. Yes, Ethan 1.0 did create some amazing things, but they always seemed a little Deus ex Machina to me – like, the joke is, “Look, this idiot who can’t take care of himself made a butter-powered time machine! How craaazy is that?” It’s the same sort of comedy as when Homer Simpson, atop a rogue nuclear submarine, says “It’s my first day” through a megaphone in English, Spanish, Japanese, and Penguinese. This Ethan is still zany, but not nonsensical. He didn’t dress up in a tuxedo and tails for no reason; he… Read more »

Also, can we take a moment to appreciate just how genuinely nice and chill Lucas date is? I mean, random blind date you just found that day, but the guy seems great, like a genuinely solid dating material.

Sure there may eventually be flaws, but as of this moment? Dudes great.

That may come with a lot of practice on his part. But true, he’s cool.
(And surprisingly not a barkeeper, but working in a hospital ;))

Plus, I’m assuming from his conversation snippet that he’s either a doctor or a janitor. One of those jobs sure makes him seem like A+ date material.

Seconded! I guess we might not see much more of him (given Lucas apparent dating habits), but he’s very cool!

Of course, it’s obvious to us that Ethan’s joking, because if either of them was going to be a food taster it’d be the guy who can’t die.

What would be a little bit less awkward, I agree 😛

Inb4 food is actually poisoned by robot dude, causing mass panic and an almost revealed super hero.

Also an unlikely event that Andrew is, or works for Zeke, and that’s how they got it poisoned.

The…DELIVERER! Summoning cubes of pure Energon, which she then delivers in 5-7 business days….unless you are a Prime evildoer, in which case it’s 1-2 days…

So, yeah…delayed justice, but boy oh boy when those cubes hit your face….!

It’d make more sense for her to be a machinist of some sort. You’d be surprised how many times you can find junk lying around that can be easily…re purposed.

Ugh. This date had gone from cute and lovably anxious to annoying and obnoxiously ridiculous in the time it took dinner to get there. Here’s hoping it doesn’t work out between them.

I really like the new direction the comic is taking with a more grounded and relatable (read: lifelike) Ethan and Lucas. But its moments like these where I struggle; three or four comics in a row where its just a joke about Ethan misunderstanding and panicking ridiculously in a row or otherwise shooting from the hip and “hilarity ensuses”. This comic would be amazing if maybe 15% more strips ended without punchlines and instead furthered the story sagely. I love that you’ve turned an eye towards more serious storytelling but it feels like you’re living too much in both worlds.… Read more »
