Anything's possible when you're STYLIN' like Janet.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:00 AM

They only like him because his hair sticks up.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:02 AM

...bein' super-creepy.... >

I didn't know it was possible either!

12 Feb 2016 | 12:03 AM

Oh shit, Janet's look. Now I'm wondering how he's still ALIVE.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:04 AM

plot twist annie asks out margo

12 Feb 2016 | 12:04 AM

How exactly does one get a double-strike off a single throw?

12 Feb 2016 | 12:04 AM

Oh yeah, what happened between him and Janet? Is this really just a ploy for something? :D So happy to see something chill for once. lol

12 Feb 2016 | 12:06 AM

I'm loving the colours in this bowling alley. They're all so bright. And the way the floor is so shiny that things are reflecting in it. The whole aesthetic is really cool.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:06 AM

Noooo, why must this dramatic tension arrive on a Friday?! *milks the giant cow in the sky*

12 Feb 2016 | 12:07 AM

Winsbury is getting double the glares this comic. If the number of glares keeps increasing at the current rate, everybody in the room will be glaring at him by the end. Will Winsbury survive the collective death glares from an entire roomful of people? Stay tuned to find out.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:22 AM

Mmmmm, destroy him Janet

12 Feb 2016 | 12:25 AM

Angry ex and angry creepy-stalker-of-one's-mother.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:29 AM

goddamnit I love Janet's outfit ...

12 Feb 2016 | 12:36 AM

Aww. Winsbury and Janet are not a couple anymore.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:37 AM

Th-that stare...

The Bowling Nard

That is ridiculous. Do you mean to tell me that Janet's ball bounced into the other lane with another strike after the previous, or is it the other way around? Either way, that makes no sense. You either shoot your lane, or throw it in the other lane, ya can't have both, people.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:39 AM

Oh dear. Janet does not look any more pleased than Rey...

12 Feb 2016 | 12:40 AM
Izzy the Nard

Also, William? I don't get you. I've had this feeling about you ever since that ONE visual cue from somewhere I will not mention. But why do you and Janet seem to be at a crossroads, and she's trying to get you to come with her while you want to go the other way, huh? What is happening? I don't know what's happening! And Reynard is being too much of a creepy nosey paranoid father figure for me to even care! *blahs off some more before fading into the nothingness*

12 Feb 2016 | 12:40 AM

Janet isn't very happy about the love of her life crushing on somebody else, either.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:43 AM

So. Either William needs cover for dating Janet without her father knowing, or Kat thinks that Annie needs cover to get out without her dad raising a fuss. Someone saw this as a solution to both problems, and it's going to end regrettably all around.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:43 AM

I just noticed Janet's glaring too...

12 Feb 2016 | 12:47 AM

I forgot that this guy was seeing someone else. they're not together anymore? :'(

12 Feb 2016 | 12:48 AM

Double the danger! Can he go for for a triple death stare?~

12 Feb 2016 | 12:48 AM

It's possible to get more than two strikes Annie. Position your self in front of the lane. Then, step to the right just a bit and then bowl. I know well because I got a Turkey at Wii Sports Bowling.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:49 AM

Double death stare. Winsbury really needs to put more skill points into his perception skill.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:53 AM
Josh that Vegeta?

12 Feb 2016 | 12:54 AM

I wonder if what he wants to do is set her up with someone else? Because this so far is three couples + Annie and rey.

12 Feb 2016 | 12:54 AM

Can we not

12 Feb 2016 | 12:55 AM

I'm biting my nails here...

What trickery is this?

12 Feb 2016 | 1:04 AM

something's up...

12 Feb 2016 | 1:05 AM

Both Janet and Reynard seem less than pleased... Glaring intensifies.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:09 AM

Time for a double-death-glare, heh.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:13 AM
White Rice

Double Strike? How can this be? Did she somehow ricochet the ball after the first strike & get a strike on the next lane as well? Did the ball split in two partway down the lane, with one half jumping to the next lane & getting a strike there? We're lasers involved? Now I won't be able to sleep :-/

12 Feb 2016 | 1:13 AM

Sorry, but Janet is hot now.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:24 AM

... has really weird hair.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:24 AM

Winsbury better keep that hand hovering if he want's to keep it.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:33 AM

Did I... did I miss anything important?

12 Feb 2016 | 1:41 AM

There's magic, monsters and mad science but an undefined move in a real-world sport like bowling? That's just too far, Tom. Self parody means you're out of ideas. (yes I am box-bot)

12 Feb 2016 | 1:43 AM

oh boy. I don't know what to do with this information.

12 Feb 2016 | 1:47 AM

Janet's not, uh. Looking too happy there. Neither is Renard. You, uh, you doing okay, you two? (kind of on board with this actually tom pls don't fake us out but at the same time)

12 Feb 2016 | 1:52 AM

We're going to get another page of Coyote saying "He-he!" shortly, aren't we? :)

Love your comic. Had to share this one: Scored a double strike on a single throw, once. I'm 6'4" and, at the time, weighed in at around 250. Used an eight pound ball with extra-large holes. It didn't roll down the lane so much as slide. Threw so hard, the ball bounced off the back wall (scored a strike), came back toward me, hit the back of a light fixture between lanes, and bounced into the next lane (scored a strike). The guy in that lane was not impressed. And that was my last night of league bowling...

12 Feb 2016 | 2:12 AM

I'm sensing... a back flash drama story full of juicy gossip material!!!

12 Feb 2016 | 2:15 AM

"So, Annie, I've heard you super-saiyan. As you can see, I saiyan as well. Do you hear what I'm saiyan?"

12 Feb 2016 | 2:31 AM

Keep those hands above the equator, guy.

12 Feb 2016 | 2:43 AM

winsbury's hair looks like bowling pins janet

12 Feb 2016 | 2:50 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 2:51 AM

The last picture.... hillarious :D

12 Feb 2016 | 2:59 AM

Unexpected senpai noticed me.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:08 AM

Has it been mentioned yet that Winsbury is has gone super saiyan?

12 Feb 2016 | 3:27 AM

So Janet and Winsbury aren't together... This could get ugly.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:31 AM

That last panel!

12 Feb 2016 | 3:36 AM

I believe that no one's gotten older, but the grown-up look on the others is merely a representation of how Annie perceives to be older because she's been held back a year. Wow okay what happened between Janet and William? An actual fight leading to a breakup? Or is William just trying to help Annie re-connect with her emotions?

12 Feb 2016 | 3:37 AM

Once, at a bowling alley, I witnessed somebody get 3 strikes in 3 separate lanes with a single throw. In hindsight, it was probably an earthquake, but it's even more impressive if they caused an earthquake with a single throw.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:38 AM

Ooookaaayyy....that explains it

12 Feb 2016 | 3:41 AM

We're only like 4 pages into this and I'm already in love with this ship... They're so cute together!

12 Feb 2016 | 3:43 AM

Super smooth, Annie. Keep on.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:48 AM

Janet's face in the last panel-that means-that means, he's really going to do it?! That worries me a little because for all we know Janet might be connected to some very important information.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:52 AM

Ah, ye olde discreet arm-around... Get your tentacles offa our girl, you - you... OMG is he a fire elemental, too?

12 Feb 2016 | 3:56 AM

Uhhh... Winsbury, the Janet looks to you with a... pained expression... yes... that's the word I'm looking for.

12 Feb 2016 | 3:56 AM

I... Janet... ... HOW?!

12 Feb 2016 | 3:59 AM

I will reiterate: the young sir is most definitely something akin to Annie. and I am sticking with him being Child of Loki: fiery attitude, fiery hair, always looks like he's sneaking around ('tho truth be told, he seems to have done some "freshman stretching". doesn't look like the untrustworthy toady he tended to sport early on. ah, wait, I just noticed in tbe final panel, the glowing wolf eyes on the young lady's face and the jealousy/blood list vision beaming up from Rey'. and the two match perfectly .

12 Feb 2016 | 4:02 AM

12 Feb 2016 | 4:02 AM

Looks like he's trying not to die in the last two Panels. Poor Winsbury.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:05 AM

This comment...

12 Feb 2016 | 4:15 AM

Ooh. Janet is pissssssssssedddddd.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:20 AM

Annie's face reminds me of the current generation. Her thoughts are probably "Where's the on switch?"

12 Feb 2016 | 4:20 AM

Also, what's up with Winsbury's super saiyan hair lol.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:22 AM

Is it possible? I know nothing about bowling so, not sure.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:27 AM
The Old Wolf

The lines in that central panel are just perfect. I can feel the action. Delightfully rendered.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:28 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 4:30 AM

The Court... were bowling shoes are optional. :-p

12 Feb 2016 | 4:33 AM

Ah, so Janet is unhappy. *flips popcorn*

12 Feb 2016 | 4:34 AM

poor winsbury!! he's just super nice is all!!

12 Feb 2016 | 4:34 AM

Seriously, what happened between him and Janet!?

12 Feb 2016 | 4:41 AM

More importantly, that girl.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:41 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 4:43 AM

Noooo, don't let any smelly men near you. Hoes before bros.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:45 AM

Ooooooh..... so I'm guessing there was a breakup between Winsbury and Janet....

12 Feb 2016 | 4:45 AM

Oh no! He's using the irresistable "I show you how to do this" flirting technique where he casually touches her and stuff! And also, he's gonna die. Rey might be under Kat's control, Janet isn't.

12 Feb 2016 | 4:47 AM

I wonder if the headmaster found out, made them break up and ordered Willie to date Annie. Yet another instance of people interfering with Annie's life. Really, with the life of the fire elemental inside her; Tony wanted to see if he could "breed" and not kill Surma, it seemed like it was likely James was who she would have picked but was told no, and to go with Tony...

12 Feb 2016 | 4:50 AM

Hmmm, is 'this guy' also originally a fairy who wanted his hair to stick up? His look is very similar to Red...

12 Feb 2016 | 4:56 AM

Okay something is definitly up between him and Janet. I just hope he isn't using Annie to make her jealous

12 Feb 2016 | 5:01 AM

Uh oh....

12 Feb 2016 | 5:09 AM

Relating to Margo so hard fdsdfdsfdfddsdfsfsf I used to be super good at bowling and then all of a sudden all my friends are better than me. Aaaargh!

12 Feb 2016 | 5:19 AM
Kat B.

OK now it's bugging me; why is no one wearing bowling shoes?

12 Feb 2016 | 5:19 AM

Fireball Incoming!

12 Feb 2016 | 5:25 AM

I thought Winsbury and Janet were a thing.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:30 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 5:37 AM
Mrs. On-a-phone

See it seemed like both Will and Janet were super nice to Annie during the boat could get the sense that he liked Annie there, but here I'm not sure whether Janet's expression is a) super serious bowler, b) impatient with Will because he's being super roundabout or c) jealous and/or suspicious and/or angry which would IMPLY though not necessarily outright MEAN that he has NOT told her his plan which would make him a real jerk and in extra trouble.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:41 AM

They look... so... old.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:44 AM

My, my, hasn't he become quite the hunk.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:46 AM

I didn't know a double strike was possible either. But I think we're about to see another one right now. Ol' Willie is about to strike out with Annie and Janet (or maybe Renard, or maybe even Annie) is going to strike HIM.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:50 AM

Janet, she pissed!

12 Feb 2016 | 5:50 AM

Am I the only one who doesn't ship Annie with anyone? I don't think she's emotionally ready for a romantic relationship right now.

12 Feb 2016 | 5:52 AM

How do you score that?

12 Feb 2016 | 5:55 AM

Double DOOOOOOOM..... There be trouble ahead..

12 Feb 2016 | 5:57 AM

How can she not like him? His hair! It goes UP!

12 Feb 2016 | 6:08 AM

Oh, Annie is soooo gonna smash this game. She'll drive that ball down the aisle perfectly each and every time. Nobody will ever play with her again!

12 Feb 2016 | 6:11 AM

the suspense is killing me

12 Feb 2016 | 6:16 AM

Tom, I can accept this strange world you have built of robots, faeries, gods and Boxbot, but this absolutely crosses a line. They are not wearing hideous, ill-fitting bowling shoes. I...I'm sorry I just can't. I have enjoyed your comic thus far, but your inability to create believable scenarios regarding the noble sport of Bowling is just right out. haha, just kidding :) Winsbury, how can you leave a girl who can double strike? DOUBLE STRIKE MAN.

12 Feb 2016 | 6:18 AM

I like this one a lot. Not positive that it might not have been marginally (like, .05%) more amusing without the "double strike" sound effect, though, and just the faces and comment. Love seeing this bunch again, though.

12 Feb 2016 | 6:19 AM

Okay....maybe this isn't a joke

12 Feb 2016 | 6:20 AM

Vegeta is making his move

12 Feb 2016 | 6:21 AM

Aw... Not poly then :(

12 Feb 2016 | 6:24 AM
WoW Paladin

Ouch, dagger-stares from Renard AND Janet. hehe

12 Feb 2016 | 6:24 AM

Janet doesn't look pleased..

12 Feb 2016 | 6:27 AM

Sounds like Gunnerkrigg bowling rules are a little nonstandard...

12 Feb 2016 | 6:27 AM

Oh they must have broke up......(WHAT WHY?!

12 Feb 2016 | 6:30 AM

Alright, I'm calling this now: Willie and Jan never broke up. He's going to try and use Annie as a cover so Jan's dad doesn't figure out that they're dating. He assumes because Annie is... well, Annie, that she won't mind.

12 Feb 2016 | 6:31 AM

Oh, I see how it is...

12 Feb 2016 | 6:32 AM

Kat wasn't being serious, was she?? Oh no dude Janet and him were awesome

12 Feb 2016 | 6:33 AM

Ok what is up with that super saiyan hair he's got.

12 Feb 2016 | 6:34 AM

Margo, that's your cue to stop playing to win, and just have fun (well for now anyways). You're hurting yourself. Don't give up, though!

12 Feb 2016 | 6:34 AM

i dont understannnnd why are winsbury and janet not together any more is this a trick for some reason? not hating on the idea of winsbury/annie just confused =_=

12 Feb 2016 | 6:35 AM

I sense trouble brewing.

12 Feb 2016 | 6:37 AM

The air is thick... with the thrill of victory!

12 Feb 2016 | 6:46 AM

Ok... so Janet looks upset too! What is going on???

12 Feb 2016 | 6:49 AM

Such a geat friend, that Winsbury! Haha, hahaha, ha...

12 Feb 2016 | 6:56 AM

What is going on?? So confused. Are the blond guy and Janet broken up? I guess that is fine but not sure of what is going on. Also, what bowling alley lets you wear boots like that on the lane??

12 Feb 2016 | 6:56 AM

i just,,,, jjanet i love u

12 Feb 2016 | 6:59 AM

Ah. I see. Or maybe I don't. But things don't appear to be going well. For anyone.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:02 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 7:06 AM

So just wondering, how old is everyone supposed to be now?

12 Feb 2016 | 7:06 AM

Everyone else is getting older but Annie seems to be getting younger... For example in the chapter where they snuck out, she looked like five years older than now. How old are they at the moment?

12 Feb 2016 | 7:08 AM

So Janet's unhappy about something. *looks a Winsbury* Something is up here...

12 Feb 2016 | 7:08 AM

b- baka....

12 Feb 2016 | 7:10 AM

Double strike out more like?? Amirite??? (plz get my joke?)

12 Feb 2016 | 7:12 AM

Renard is going to fight Winsbury and it's going to be hilarious.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:15 AM

Why can't I shake these Saved By the Bell vibes?

12 Feb 2016 | 7:15 AM

Janet doesn't look to happy back there

12 Feb 2016 | 7:17 AM
L. More

Bowling nerds... raging...

12 Feb 2016 | 7:18 AM

Sorry Janet there's just not enough eyebrow to go round.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:21 AM

You know, when this escalates, I think it's going to escalate quickly. I can hardly wait.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:37 AM

What even is happening here?

12 Feb 2016 | 7:37 AM

Everyone looks so grown-up and fashionable!

12 Feb 2016 | 7:41 AM

Well Janet, if you're dissatisfied you gotta quit playing games! You gots ta grab yo man!

12 Feb 2016 | 7:41 AM

I'm the only one who thinks that windsbury looks like a súper sayan? Lol.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:46 AM

I don't understandddddddd

12 Feb 2016 | 7:47 AM

Just what you need to relax Carver.

12 Feb 2016 | 7:49 AM

yes annie is adorable but also she is a big gay so it's fruitless winsbury

12 Feb 2016 | 7:54 AM

Yes, Winsbury, hitting on another girl in front of your ex girlfriend is a great idea.

12 Feb 2016 | 8:01 AM


12 Feb 2016 | 8:02 AM

Hey, it's two-for-one night at the ol' bowling alley! Wins is going to show Annie how to get two strikes with only one throw. Janet and Rey are going to show her how to get two homicides with only one victim. A true friend would tell Winsbury that he's strolling through a minefield...

12 Feb 2016 | 8:05 AM

I wonder how well he'll handle rejection....

12 Feb 2016 | 8:08 AM

I forgot Winsbury has a gf already. (O_O)

12 Feb 2016 | 8:10 AM
Billy Janet is SO GOOD at bowling she gets MULTIPLE STRIKES on ONE THROW. Oh, I get it, this is Gunnerkrigg; she has magics to let her do the impossible at the alley. Also; these girls need to lighten up!

12 Feb 2016 | 8:21 AM

I'm concerned for Winsbury's safety...

12 Feb 2016 | 8:23 AM
P. Sherman

I know what we're all thinking, poor Margo!

12 Feb 2016 | 8:23 AM

First of all: Double-strike? I call shenanigans. Second: Wow, is this really a thing? Winsbury + Annie? Janet and Rey seem to think so. I'm with Margo: Hrmrmmm.

12 Feb 2016 | 8:32 AM
Leeda Hope

Okay... So Janet isn't okay with this. OH MY WORD THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!!! Gunnerkrigg is the only reason I wish the weekend was shorter...

12 Feb 2016 | 8:35 AM

WINSBURY!!!! Have a nice afterlife. :D

12 Feb 2016 | 8:39 AM

I don't understand Willie's eyebrows in second to last panel. I also don't understand Janet's reaction like at all....

12 Feb 2016 | 8:40 AM

I is so confused!?!? Why is Winsbury doing this?? Why is Margo jealous of Janet? Why not be good friends and help each other be the best there ever was?

12 Feb 2016 | 8:44 AM

Oh man, Winstead is going to double die!(Also, I'm so glad you mentioned Margo's name cuz I totally forgot it. *facepalm*)

12 Feb 2016 | 8:48 AM
