Wak of Love

Filed under: actual action, comic crossovers, Exploding Eyeball Syndrome, freak hands — jasbeattie @ 10:43 am

So Steve takes a well deserved WAK! to the face for his smart-ass mouth and meddling ways. And Ray, being a distant cousin of Mark Trail, is inclined to punch anyone with suspicious facial hair. But even when being punched, Steve still has to be a jerk…defying the laws of physics by falling to the right from a punch to the right side of his mug. At least his glasses are with the program.

But then…someone with very nubby fingers comes to Steve’s rescue! Who could it be? While we’d all love to see Kaz get involved in fisticuffs, or possibly even Mr. Bakst or Clambake, money’s on Gil having finally stumbled in the door after knocking back a few at PUB then stopping off for some quick finger-shortening surgery.


  1. It’s Cassie, aka “Cassandra, She-Wolf of the SS.” She thinks the threesome has started.

  2. Probably Gil, could be Chief Lumm that Gil would have called after he got his call from Steve, hope it’s Kaz, but could it be….Mr. Kessler?!?

  5. The first panel looks like something out of the old Batman TV series.

    Whoever it is, like I said in the previous strip, they knocked (or in Thorp-ese) “nokked” the squint out of Ray’s eyes (along with his soul patch). I suspect it’s Gil giving the drunken right stubby fist ‘o justice beatdown, but I’ll go with the un-obvious and say it’s Andrew Gregory’s (a/k/a CurleyHorse) old man (and Pizza boy’s namesake) Big Ray.

    And damn #2 you beat me to the Mr. Kessler reference LOL. You know Mr. Kessler takes care of the ladies!

  6. Boy, this is nut(s).

    Gil? Gregory? Baskt? Could also be the sofa striking back for all the stains Cassie and Flippy been leavin’ on it.

    Rubin puts all new meaning to coitus interruptus!

  7. Gil is committing an act of violence upon the person of a lawful resident of a domicile where Gil has no legal reason to be. (It’s good to be king or at least tight with the chief of police.)

    Actually, no matter what Gil thinks he sees, he should just be trying to drag Steve’s ass out of there.

  8. What’s this?…on-screen action?! Instead of a description of the fight at “The Bucket” later on? This is great! I haven’t seen this much excitement in the Thorpiverse since Tyler Jay knocked his own eyeball out of his head with that stick! I just wish Old Stubby Gil hadn’t come in to break it up so quickly. I could have stood about nine more panels of Steve and Flippy punching each other while Cassie’s eyeball explodes.

    Now I suppose Cassie is going to decide Ray’s a jerk for punching Steve, and that she really does love Steve, who is going to go back to school to study fisticuffsmanship (with a minor in geography) so he won’t be caught off-guard next time he insults a pizza flipper.

  10. I’ll go with Kaz. Or how about Marty DeJong, on spring break from his classes he couldnt pay for? Or the Comics Curmudgeon, for not contributing to his blog site? Or Jeff Ponczak, for getting laid off his gig on TV? So many possibilities…

  11. Of course! Sackodog!

  12. Maybe it’s Jolene Raptor, whom Ray once pissed off royally by delivering her pizza cold.
