what an early riser Super Shannon is here
I needed this after yesterday’s strip.
Faster than a speeding locomotive, more effective than an alarm clock…
When Bad things Happen- ha ha!
Those who guessed that Shannon would appear today were sure on the money. My question is: was Shannon there all night or did she just get dropped off at 6am in the morning? Memo to Brad: door lock, extra strong!
I guess Brad and Toni don’t sleep in the nude when Shannon is spending the night and for good reason.
“Super Shannon,” eh?
This “superhero” once stopped Ann Eiffel dead in her tracks by darn near biting her finger off.
Too bad the kid wasn’t around yesterday.
This girl named “Tara” could have used her “help.”
Thought that “S” stood for Saltpeter or at least “stop-procreation”
As annoying as Shannon is her moves are more accurate than Taras were
That’s a pretty funny comment, Brad. :)
6:14 am or pm?
“But, aunt Toni, I was outside the door listening, an’ thought I Brad was hurting you, an’ I was going to save your life …”
A bad thing happened at the Fuse, Super Shannon. Too bad you weren’t there to save the day…
More than once, I have speculated that Jonah no longer exists within the Luann-verse.
I take this as proof positive that Shannon never goes home to Jonah anymore.
We need a resolution to the Jonah situation.
As if we’re going to get that any time soon.
Boy already the nasty comments about Shannon. It’s kind of ironic that she is talking about being a superhero who shows up when bad things are happening. She is an innocent, if aggravating child, but Luann is dealing with young adults who can have very real dangerous things happen to them. Monday I am quite sure the arc will continue with Tara and Bernice and Luann having to deal with the most serious situations that can be imagined in a comic.
Her super powers are chaos and whining.
How long is Shannon going to stay whatever-age-she-is while everyone else is going to college, taking on jobs, and other things showing that time’s actually passing in Luannverse? Even Punk is growing up. But Shannon has barely changed in how long now?
La onomatopeya del primer panel podría indicar que se trata de una ambulancia que traslada a una chica atropellada afuera de The Fuse, pero se trata de Super Shannon, quien apareció precisamente cuando algo malo acaba de suceder.
Changing the subject of car hitting. How can Toni wake up in the Morning and look Soooo HOT?
Just when we thought we could finally relax again!!!
We need Super Shannon to combat Psycho Stella.
I wonder if Shannon eats a lot of “chocolate frosted sugar bombs” like Calvin does over at Calvin and Hobbes.
Same old, same old, Shannon will never change…
Shannon freaking lives in their house, you know.
You’re sure you still want kids, Brad? Better be using condoms or the pill or a diaphragm or whatever will prevent the conception of a baby you won’t be bothered to discipline.
We don’t like you, Shannon. Go away!
Toni and Brad, please, get a lock on your bedroom door (and use it)!
So really, she’s the SS ??
Adorable ♡! Shannon is so creative and full of energy♡. Brad and Toni are always surprised by her.
Tara could have used you last night, Shannon.
Yesterday, someone predicted a Sunday strip featuring Shannon would be in bad taste. Great call.
Get over to the Fuse, Supershannon. They need you.
Is she officially adopted yet? This is obviously where she actually lives.
The ‘S’ is for shark. Her entry into the strip was when it jumped the shark.
Too bad Shannon wasn’t at The Fuse yesterday, she probably would have been more effective than Tara..
Hopefully, there will be a cousin in Shannon’s future.
At that age my daughter would pounce upon our bed in her Wonder Woman underroos, singing the theme song from the Lynda Carter classic at the top of her lungs.
She’s waking them up so they can head over to the fuse. You know they’re going the be the firefighters on the scene.
Note Brad’s hand in first panel, not around Toni’s waist. Get with it, Brad!
Today’s strip be a harbinger of things to come.
I think Super Shannon showed up at the wrong place. Someone just got ran over.
Brad was very astute in his comment this morning.
The question begs, however…. how on Earth did Shannon get in there with the two of them sleeping?
I am going to presume that Jonah stopped by rather hurriedly because he had just finished making and feeding Shannon his “stellar Dad” big breakfast of pancakes where he made the pancakes into letters that spelled out “Super Shannon” to encourage Shannon’s self esteem, followed by a healthy bowl of mixed, fresh fruit that he lovingly hand picked and sliced, and a yogurt for Shannon to provide needed calcium.
Furthermore, Jonah has had to unfortunately hurry along rather quickly because he was close but not quite late in terms of getting to his new, permanent “gig” as the musical celebrant and Music Director for the “Pitts Community Church” down the road.
In addition, this may likely be Shannon’s last surprise visit, as loving dad Jonah has taken it upon himself to also have Shannon receive special after-school guidance lessons on decorum and she is almost finished and has been at the head of her class. After this week, Jonah will be encouraging Shannon to participate as a member of the Choir at the Pitts Community Church, where she will become a breakout sensation…. and will soon be lead singer.
But… for today…. I guess after Jonah left, TJ thought it would be “humorous” to let “Super Shannon” bound and bounce into the room. :)
Every child is a superhero.
As an aside….
With the intensity of what transpired in yesterday’s comic, today was a welcome “lower-key” set of panels.
However, what may Monday morning bring? Hopefully, Greg will at least be continuing with the Tara arc… and it will not be a rather cruel cliff hanger and we jump to something else. But, if it continues…. what will happen?
a) Tara will be a bit bruised and battered from the altercation, but will recover, and she decides to stay in Pitts…. and this continues to forge her transformation in this comic into a more full-fledged, thoughtful character with a purpose in life. (This is my hoped for choice.)
b) Tara will be unconscious, hovering near death… and after Luann and Bernice summon an ambulance, we will have an arc of uncertainty this week on whether Tara lives or dies (aka, the “Telenovella”/“Soap Opera” approach)… but in the end, Tara will eventually pull through, but will then still leave for Utah. (Seems a plausible way this may be handled, though the “soapy” drama is not so much to my liking.)
c) Tara will die, and the comic explores the feelings of death and loss in a “PSA” sort of fashion. (I hope not.)
d) Tara will die, and the comic will cantilever further and continue further down a path of very deep, dark, harsh stories and will become more graphic and mean spirited. (Again, I hope not.)
e) Other? Your thoughts…..
I wish I could say this is comic relief, but it isn’t, to me anyway. I know there are Shannon fans.
Little wonder Toni isn’t interested an more kids.
Anyone else notice that poor Brad needs ice for his package?
A new, more repulsive type of bedbug. Brad speaks truth, Greg should listen to him.
Wrong Character that be Toni.
Spoiled brat, period
Well I prefer Super hero Shannon to Super destructive Shannon.
So when will they have Shannon tested for ADHD?
More like “Superbrat”.
Yep, that’s right. A six year old running around in her underwear is exactly what we needed to see.
Yeah SuperShannon. Just when we thought there weren’t any heroes left in the world.
No she got it right. Bad things are her Superpower…..
When my kids were this age I’d keep them up until 9 pm or later. That way they would sleep until 7 am. I like quiet in the morning and I enjoyed spending time with the kids at night.
Hey, time actually moved in this strip!
The clock showed 6:14 in the first three panels, but shows 6:15 in the last!
“When you WHOOOOOOOOOOSH upon a bed,
Brad and Toni lift their sleepy heads!"
go back to bed Shannon
Monday: which acronym? CPR? RIP?
TJ is the one person who has had the best relationship with Shannon.
He should officially designate Shannon as Super Brat, a typical comic book superhero.
Shannon will be delighted, accept the title, and fall into the trap.
TJ will point out that all comic book heroes never use their powers for their self interest.
(Spiderman delivering pizza by webslinging?)
Shannon will have to use her powers for good.
please no more shannon—annoying and not remotely funny
Lol @ Brad’s last remark. Hilarious.
What a coincidence! I can think of a few people holding out for a hero right now…
I notice an entire message thread got removed.
Brad and Toni need to get a lock on their door.
Where is her father???
I believe that I’m gonna go along with Brad on this one.
Would somebody kill the SuperBRAT!?
Brad is sooo right! And THIS is why I DON’T want kids.
Looks like she broke the morning wood.
“And who are you?” Wait a minute… Toni has never seen this outfit?
And another point: Is Shannon another Ann Eifel in the making? Totally self-centered, not caring how she affects others.
Now comes Monday…..
Jonah’s disappearance from his daughter’s life has to be sorted out. It is lazy of the Evanses, and insulting to their readers, that they have let this go on for so long. 5 years since his last sighting? Ridiculous.
Panel 3. Where did Toni and Brad go? No big lumps in the bed.
she is right when trouble happens she shows up normally she’s the cause of it though
