Oh girl, when will you learn to stay focused?
(Keep your guard up, you two. Things are not as the seem.)
Comically Steph’s misstep actually might have made this easier on Ben. Or at least allowed him to look the part of a no-nonsense underworld type.
Steffi, not Steph. Cursed numerous spellings.
the tiger lady’s eye’s just got kinda scary o__o;; cant wait for the snake guy.
GIRL, the snake GIRL! It’s obvious right this second… why do people not notice?
Well, -trix is a latin feminine agent noun suffix, so it would make sense
Because cat eyes and snake eyes are very similar and some people are either slow or don’t know the whole “It’s really the bartender” trope.
Or am I right at all?
“Guy” is gender neutral. As demonstrated by the tiger-ish person barkeep.
Here I thought “guy” was masculine and “gal” was the feminine equivalent. And is it just me or were you MIA for a bit?
Speaking from my own nongendered experience, “guy” is always vague and gender-neutral. To answer your other question, I simply had nothing to say.
I’m definitely of the opinion that “guy” is emphatically male… and referring to females as “guys” is just wrong. Plain wrong. Certainly no less male a term than “bloke”.
But the thing is, she has cat parts, not snake parts.
We’re assuming she actually has ears at all. That whole getup might not only be prosthetic, but detachable as well. Creepy thought. Anyway, we’ll see.
I have to dismiss the urge to list a couple of my favorite malt beverages. It might be too telling.
Awww, why not?~~~
Drinks are good~~
Why, you buying? :>
nope. he/she’s not…I am : D
@LuminousDecibel Remember their 3rd is very much not as she seems.
In panel 3 all I can see is Steffi with the bad poker face under her mask.
“Also, we’ll need a doctor, I think my friend’s jaw is broken. “
>_< Thats going to leave a mark. Atleast it might help Ben look more convincing.
Oh my goodness she even said German, lol. Steffi is so clueless and I am loving this track’s writing to pieces.
Awesome move. This comic is just getting better and better. And it was already good to begin with.
Dangit, I wish I could see Steffi’s face under that mask right then…
Why do I suspect Steffi has had a drink or two due to dad not locking the Cabinet or her seeing if she unlock it and curiousity, Heritage pride?
My Oma would always give us grandkids some of whatever beer she was having if we wanted it; she said it was a good way to figure out early on which ones of us really meant it.
In Europe in general, there is no legal drinking age or it’s very loosely enforced. Italy, France and Germany in particular are well known for it…
So it’s likely Steffi’s had alcohol before this.
The bartenders eyes are cool looking. Her nose, on the other hand, freaks me out. She really went all out with the alterations.
Also, Ben seems incredibly adept at seedy underhand dealings.
Hmmm interesting that the emphasis was on HIM. Is this a case of mistaken gender or just Natrix being a really important dude? Or maybe she’s just incredulous that these two would want to see him.
Said it last time. Without a doubt, snake is a she.
After all… Look at Racoon, HE was so obviously a boy wasn’t HE?
If you go back to when raccoon first mentioned the snake person she very much used male pronouns and even the word man I’m pretty sure. But who knows, maybe chandra didn’t even get involved enough to learn the gender of this mysterious snake person. It certainly would be a twist.
Yep, I remember. I also remember when 42 was asked to find out who Chandra was.
And the results:
Basically we’ve degraded into calling anyone you don’t actually know a he in some format. Since even Steffi makes this mistake it’s not unquestionable to think it’s common. Also we have never “seen” Chandra talk with Natrix. Only know that they communicated. Thus the barkeep and the name key me into not a guy. The barkeep’s *pause* confirms it as the response text becomes HIM with extra emphasis.
I agree with ForestSageSaria. I think the emphasis on the “him” is not a “It’s not a him” emphasis, it’s a “Him? That guy’s our shady genetic splicey modifications guy, why do you want to talk to him?”
Now that we’ve seen the tiger lady from several different angles.
I have to admit shes got great tail …
I see what you did there.
Also, I concur.
Also also, German beers rock.
You saying you’d yiff that?
I think Steffi may have watched a bit much of Bond, taking the pretty lady up on her offer for drink before dancing with the snake.
Then Ben decided to rush the Bond, skipping the pleasantries straight to dancing with the snake.
I love that 42 is all “I am observing some actions which are happening!” about it.
I feel like panel 4 is missing a “WHUD!” sound effect, haha. :3
Guys, guys–we’ve had this wrong all along:
BEN is the superhero and BLITZ is the sidekick
I thought that’s been obvious since his first appearance.
It definitely appears that way! From the Barkeep’s standpoint, I would see the pair as Ben being the serious shady criminal, and Steffi the bumbling peon.
Not a bumbling peon, but the bumbling partner of the serious shady criminal, kind of like CD from Homestuck.
a dog, a bunny and a cat walk into a bar….
Cube….Oh gosh. Oh gosh no.
Now I have to reread the entire series, with Steffi’s voice being played by Sean Connery.
Also, that person with the awesome greyscale colourscheme and a crazy checkerboard shawl seems pretty non-furry-like. Proof I was right all along and you don’t need disguises? (Except to hide your identity).
Might have ears we just can’t see due to the speech bubbles. But I concur with your view with the understanding that if the person is a regular and in good-standing, they waive the dress code now and then.
No, you misunderstand. In actual bars and furry conventions, there is no specific dress code. Most people dress up, but it’s not required.
No no! The codeword is a shot of ruby bliel!
*crickets chirp as noone gets the reference*
ben is a spec ops… steffi is more of a sock puppet
Damn Ben! Handling it like a pro….. it almost looks like he’s done this before :[

This album art by Odori still turns my damn crank. Look at the ferris wheel with the MOON PHASES aaaaaaa
I love art like this that’s complex without being impossible to read and has that kind of stylized flatness. Gotta try to do a piece like it sometime.
(If you’re into crazy-ass Jrock, the album is Roomsick Girls Escape by Hitorie. The lead singer/composer is Wowaka of vocaloid fame. God I wish they’d put it on iTunes >:( )
