What are these two up to?
I am glad they are together.
Jack Zimmying it up.
Ha! More than just a little obsessed!
Jenny is too cool. Quickly becoming a favorite character for me
Hope Paz is okay. She seems like the type to freak out at stuff like this. Also, is Jenny okay with Jacks obvious crush on Zimmy? And is it wrong that I almost make a penis joke there?
Man, these kids can't catch a break, like at all.
Really, this is dumber than the last page. Annie is so weak she can't even pull of a piece of paper. Also, Kat's entire life is pointless. I used to think she was ok until chapter 45 where she turns out to be a gay and kiss a girl and date and stuff.
An understatement, Jenny, a big understatement!
ough... All the students are trapped in zimmyland? :(
I still don't want to like Jenny.
Wait, she knows she's a surrogate? Nice gal, really.
Also WOW Kat's arm is long in the last panel. Is she turning rubber, Tom?
That is one understanding girlfriend.
Well, alright then. So long as Jenny is cool with the endless Zimmy fixation, you may proceed, Jack.
O wow she's into sharing.
So, what relationship exactly does Jack have with this girl?
S O O N, H I G H L A N D
Now is the time for Paz and Kat to step up to the plate. This is no time for thinking about yourselves. There's no telling what those harpy-bots are capable of, so if Kat has any ideas in that mechanical mind of hers, everyone could use that trump card now!
Paz's feelings hurt? She's probably going to be amazing towards the end of this. :D
I am officially dumbfounded... O_o
Here I was thinking Jack was dating her as some sorta stand-in Zimmy and she was in for a rude awakening when she realizes it. But I guess she already knows and is okay with that?
Either Paz is frightened (as she has every right to be!), and Kat is comforting her... and/or...
Paz is trying to communicate with Lindsey and/or Bud, and Kat is lending her support.
Jenny seems to be taking Jack's obsession with Zimmy... well.
Jenny is surprisingly fine with this situation o_O
Calling it now: Jenny is a homunculus.
She is so chill and witchy and eyeshadowy. My kind of woman. Hoping she sticks around.
I don't think things would end well with the new girl.
How'd they get on the beech?
They have a weird relationship :/
Tom, are you EVER going to explain this "bi" thing? If it isn't explained in at least 6 years, I may just kill myself. And it would be ALL your fault.
I see Paz is still upset that the robots didn't consider her a threat.
I know I did this two times already but this definitely looks like trouble i*mpf*
Ignore my previous comment.
I think it sucks to be in Jenny's position, but she's pretty cool about it.
Yep, still a creep.
It's okay Paz, when the ship turns into an animal, you can talk to it!
She's good with Jack's obsession, and not the least bit jealous. Okay, she's more than he deserves. She's awesome.
I have a feeling Jack's more spider than we thought he was after the last incident.
I like her, I totally will want more of her.
Sabrina just keeps growing on me! I thought for sure Jack'd've kept her in the dark, then she'd flip out. But no! Win win!
Which raises the question, did he fall in love with a girl that just happened to look like Zim Zim, or did Jenny's appearance change to match his obsession? There haven't been too many coincidences like that in this comic, so I suspect there's something more going on here.
Everyone knows about Zimmy and Gamma
Wait, she knows about his obsession? And she's all right with it!? Is this girl some sort of inhuman being from another dimension? I don't think any human girl would not feel jealousy in this situation.
Tom, raising the bar once more. Come on, Monday (did I just say that?)...
At least Paz and Kat have each other's backs. Now to find the others...
Well, at least Paz and Kat LOOK like they're all right.
I wonder if Jenny is more like Jack's partner (Starsky and Hutch? Stabler and Benson?) than his girlfriend.
I wasn't sure I'd like this girl... but I do. A lot. She's nice and also a witch
A little? No.
This is Hyland's fault somehow!
I want to marry this comic I Live it so much
For a second there, I thought Paz was bleeding. Then I realized it was just her skirt. **phew**
Wanna bet Kat and Paz are Gamma and Zimmy now? (Not necessarily in that order...)
But, who are those two again? Flashback please?
Watch out for clowns...
Tom, Great to see you at SPX. Hope you can make it over next year. GC is an amazing story.
The spiders are obsessed with Zimmy. Jack said they love her so much it's scary. The (ordinary) robots love Jeanne, and are obsessed with her. Do they love Kat too? Zimmy loves Gamma that much too... I know I'm rambling here, but this has been turning over in my mind...
"Okay, Kat, that's it. We have GOT to have a talk about your friends. No more creepy surprises."
Romantic last panel!
You know, it takes a very self-assured gal to be so supportive when her 'boyfriend' is so obsessed with another girl.
I find I like her very much. Women like that are the creme of the creme, the best the world has to offer.
maybe she's jack's robot
Kat: Paz, will you marry me?!
Shouldn't it concern Jenny a bit that her boyfriend is obsessing over a girl who is looking at least superficially similar to her??
I'm Zimmy's replacement :D
Come on Tom, can't you just for once just give us a one dimensional character? Jenny could have just been a clueless girl that caters to her boyfriend. But, no, you had to go and make her a real person that feels things other than jealousy and naivety. Geez.
(Thank you so much!)
Okay, don't get me wrong, I REALLY love Gunnerkrigg Court, but I'm not sure if this chapter is part of the whole plot, or is a subplot, or is just a filler chapter. The whole plot is starting to get a tad fuzzy, now that I think of it...
so this is a phase because paz's odd birdlike movements right?
Remember how easily Mort terrified Paz, back in the day?
Paz could be really scared right now.
Or not. She's grown up a lot since then, and she's not alone.
Please, tell me you're winding us up.
Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. It's such a beautiful moment they are having, I shouldn't tease. I love Kat and Paz together so incredibly much. It's so sweet.
Also, I second/third/whatever what everyone is saying about Jenny. She rocks.
By the way... am I the only one still getting used to Jack's new look? Such a manly jaw. It's just too weird though, when I'm used to thinking of him like before.
I second that, Tom
Props to her for not being all jealous and shit about the whole Zimmy obsession. Wait, they're together right? Am I talking out of my ass again...
And she's cool with that?
Oh man she's not like a robot Jack built to look like Zimmy and be his girlfriend is she
I hope not, I like her. She should join the team
if troll: gr8 b8 m8! i r8 8/8
if not troll: The Westboro Baptist Church sends their regards!
P.S. I still think Kat and Annie and Paz and... well, the whole freakin' comic is still awesome!
She's Zimmy in disguise. And she's totally playing it cool. The fact that there are two of her has nothing to do with anything.
So, how is this comic faring? Jenny seems like a nice gal.
My Babies are in danger!!! Noooooo... Paz needs to kick some robot butts because oh my god they mistreated and disrespected her abilities which I think they should crash and burn for. Jenny is the greatest girlfriend ever! And I love how Tom incorporates charms! And finally I'd like to say this: Paz and Kat will kick butt.
My automatic reaction to sexy-apprentice-witch's "Jack is obsessed with Zimmy" comment?
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE *claps hands together gleefully*
Maybe she's his cousin he invites to all the dances when he doesn't have/want a partner or something? Why's she so cool about all this???
You're getting good at closeups, Tom! Look at that cute nose!
It just dawned on me. Isn't Jack's hair still Zimmy-Spidery? That thing was squashed! Why's his hair got the Spidery 'fangs'?
All in favor of nominating Jenny for Best Girlfriend 2014?
Oh, Tom. I love how your characters have matured over the span of the comic, and how the new ones constantly surprise us. Just faboo. @Toby - I was going to say that it's pretty hateful and misguided to judge the worth of anyone's life, *especially* based on whom they choose to love, but others have already said it better than I have. xD And if this was trollbait, geez, well done. (If not, I weep for you.)
First impression of Jenny: '"I can't stand her" Second impression: "Hey, she's actually kinda cool" Now: "I want to be her when I grow up"
@Random Person I think just as Annie's cheek scar appears when she's in the AEther so Jack's fanged hair appears when Zimmy project the Zimmyzone as here. Good calls on Zimmy and Gamma made by Jenny here. Annie has to play their sidekick! Communing with any large crustaceans are we Paz?
eh am i the only one getting weirded out by the comments from (presumably) boys who are like "jenny is the perfect girlfriend!! shes so nice"? good for her that shes ok with it but tbh it would be perfectly understandable if she wasnt ok with it too. idk i get bad vibes from their relationship it reminds me so much of girls i know irl who fully submit themselves to their boyfriends which is not healthy at all lol.
Heh, we're not gonna have to do a check on Kat's hairlength here, are we?
Tom, you're getting so good at getting us all fooled within the first few pages of a chapter.
Obsessed is such an ugly word, let's say interested instead!
Tom Siddell... I am really liking Jenny far too much for her to be a one-use plot contrivance. You'd best figure out how to shoehorn her into future chapters, or I will be VERY, VERY CROSS with you. >: (
Once again I see people are chomping at the bit to judge Jack. Last time people thought he was up to no good, he was vindicated... does no one learn?
