How to make Your Actions Seem More Glamorous

This week, instead of just pointing you toward my Amazon Affiliate links  (USUKCanada), I’m highlighting the book Brewster Rockit Space Guy: Close Encounters of the Worst Kind. (US,UKCanada) It’s like a cross between Star Wars, Flash Gordon and something that's really funny.

Nice comic, I really like the way you keep the overall idea of comics being hilarious, because it must be difficult to maintain the quality being stuck to a 4 panel design.

Panache!

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterWaladil

Every time. You get me every time!!

Enjoying the new character, also. ^_^

When did Rick become awesome?

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterL33

You are hilarious!

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermdf-nyc

This might even work, for anyone but Jenkins.

There's no way he can ever seem glamourous.

The closest thing he'll ever get to glamour is being really, really shady and dodgy.

That explains so much about our workplace conversations, since so little of what we do has any actual meaning. Now I'm sad, but in a happy way.

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGryphonBrokewing

I have the strangest feeling right now. I think... I think it's respect for Jenkins.

Make it stop, Scott. I need the world to make sense.

Another awesome comic. I don't know which panel to say is best.

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaige

Maybe I've forgotten, but is that (Scarf Girl) a new character I see?

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTheGman

Man, I totally have to use that line next time someone asks me to buy them something.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterzealith

Classic! Scott, you are the overlord and master of webcomics. Keep it up.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercharles

Aww, man. I work as a pizza delivery guy, and for my entire shift today, I'm going to speak like that.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRowan

Be there in a second honey, just advising a few authors

You're wasting time on comic strip forums again

I prefer to call it.... ah you got me.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterATP-CP

I gotta admit, I'm kind of with Jenkins on this one. Sometimes a guy's gotta make things just a little more exciting to get through the day, y'know?

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterProteus454

Six bucks for a burrito? I could three delivered here for that price!

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterStarthinker

Ah, but the subtle inferences... my high school best friend wasn't quite so subtle when making our adventures sound like *A*D*V*E*N*T*U*R*E*S*. Over and over, if I happened to hear him telling a story having to with something we'd done, I'd catch myself thinking, 'Wow! I wish I'd been there for that!'

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermcinsand

Is it wrong that I like how Jenkins handled this? First time I've counted him as the winner of a joke.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBill

Awesome comic! It would have been more awesome if you were the guy doing things with panache!

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJman

Never saw... uh... however he's called... be so awesome :-) He's got lots of panache!

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterlerk

Scott... your work her is always excellent.... but..... but..... today's comic.... transcends your normal excellence and reaches a newer, heretofore unreachable height of humor!

Jenkins is the PERFECT character for you to have had this discussion with. I literally chuckling so much that I accidentally dropped my pipe from my mouth and it clattered about on my desk.

Thank you again!!!

A+ comic, and the comments ‘ain't too shabby neither’, in the parlance of my home-town. (I may or may not have just watched The Big Lebowski.)

The comments of a loyal community are what people miss on the comic aggregator sites. I enjoy the comments almost as much as the comic. Kudos to all!

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBeardo

Love your comics, but a quick suggestion: Maybe somewhere you could put up a who's-who character list with pictures? It would help those of us who are newer to keep Jenkins and Rick and all the other players separate. It makes the comments easier to understand.
Thanks and keep up the good work!!!

Scarf Girl isn't new, she's featured in some of my favorite strips, like this one:

http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2011/3/27/how-to-be-friends-with-an-attractive-woman-when-youre-a-hete.html

That's not her first appearance though, and I don't think we've learned her name yet.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCzernobog

Nice job ! Excellent one !

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterColonel Hathi

That sounds disgusting.

I'm still laughing at that.

BTW, scarf girl has been around for a while, she's just not that common a character. Can't remember if I've seen her name though.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

You lost me at burrito. Mmm...

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

Hey the scarf girl is back. Wonder where she went?

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLiraTsoni

This is my favorite one in a little while.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

A gangster I knew used to brag about being able to whack a guy with one greased palm. At least I think he was gangster. Definitely gang-something.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSumocat

I'm about 90% sure a dear friend and myself have had this conversation.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJason

All this talk of burritos is making me hungry. I have a mission for Rick, if he chooses to accept it...

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJawfin

Hey, scarf girl's back.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteruwg

"Maybe I've forgotten, but is that (Scarf Girl) a new character I see?"
No, she is not. Panel two's pose is clearly reused.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThiago

Jenkins is my new hero. I regret that I shaved today.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoshua

We've seen scarf girl before. But she needs more poses; flipping off Jenkins in panel 2 is a disconnect.

August 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDreamLibrarian

I think I've seen scarf girl before. Wasn't she sort of sexually harassed by Rick or Jenkins once?

August 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterVorpal

Scott, thank you for once again delivering the goods. You may expect your usual payment shortly.

August 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMark W

I have a while following this web-comic(about two years now), I ain't from an english speaking country so I want to ask if any of you could tell me what "panache" means, 'cause what I found on the web makes no sense with the above stated. Thanks beforehand.

August 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersianhulo

@sianhulo: Panache is a French word that literally translates as "plume", as in a decoration on a military hat. It means doing something with style. From a thesaurus...

flamboyance, confidence, self-assurance, style, flair, élan, dash, verve, zest, spirit, brio, éclat, vivacity, gusto, liveliness, vitality, energy, pizzazz, oomph, zip, zing
