Bets may very well be able to fill a Crystal and Knute-sized hole in both Gunther and Tiffany’s lives. This dynamic is proving to be rather interesting.
Also, did anyone notice that Gunther is so flustered that his shirt’s print flipped out? I’m sure his heart’s doing the same.
Dear God… It’s got TEETH now!
Mordock, I think the biggest flaw with this relationship is that Gunther, as great a person as he can be at times, is just too passive. Naturally, when he becomes defensive or hostile, it can be interpreted as hiding something, even if it’s something innocent. Coupled with Bets’s constant paranoia, it’s a perfect storm. And a bad foundation for a relationship (being a passive guy, I can speak from personal experience)
Now, ideally, we could see both characters grow a little: have Gunther be a little more assertive (Like we saw when he broke up with Rosa) and Bets become a little more trusting, maybe even becoming friends with the group. Perhaps the camping trip will be a catalyst for this.
However, I suspect what we will likely receive instead is a cliche: Bets will walk in on Luann/Tiffany and Gunther in a misinterpreted situation, “confirm” her suspicions, and dump him without allowing for an explanation.
And nothing will change.
Nothing could possibly go wrong! But it may cost an (broken) arm and a (broken) leg.
I agree. My biggest criticism isn’t the writing itself. Many of the gags, in another comic, would be quite enjoyable. But the storytelling style just does not fit what I had come to expect of Alley Oop: a semi-serious serial comic where a plot could unfold over weeks, or even months. I will probably remove this from my daily reading list.
Coincidentally, I think many of my criticisms are the same reason why I’m not liking the Sonic movie: the style used just does not mesh well with the franchise’s established style.
Honestly, what kind of person creeps for single women in the ladies’ section of a store?Although, some of those sales look pretty hot.
Come to think of it, so do the British and Americans.
Anything to avoid a wife’s Fury.
Eh, maybe he’s Dragonborn?
True, but pixie dust contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
