Smithson Thus Far... ·


I don't know if my drawing of the sixth-grade Helen is properly in continuity or whatever, but it's pretty consistent with other drawings of the younger Helen that I've done. Of course, we'll all get to see Dave in high school eventually, as per Helen's threat.

Mee-Lise's manga drawing of Mell actually looks kind of like Zeta, who hasn't appeared yet, but will eventually team up with ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST.

Leon Arnott (l) says: Awwwwwwwww.

Even more adorable: the idea that Mell is being so thoroughly fisticuffed behind that photo that she needs Dave's help.

But not one mention of Helen's T-shirt? For shame! Now I'll never know what this "NKOTB" is.
Trisha Sebastian (trishalynn) says: Leon: You have to be kidding, right?  ^_^
Alex Powell (eslington) says:

I'd guess it's "New Kids on the Block". I remember them being some kind of boy band, possibly from Australia.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: I like that not only are the "click here" links working now,but each page of the comic gets its own comment thread!
John Weiss (cheshirecat) says: Definitely New Kids, considering the "Hangin' Tough".  (Kids: ask your parents.)  And they were Americans I'm afraid; we have to take the blame.
kate martin (juliansinger) says:

I'm pretty sure that was sarcasm on Leon's part.

 (The best thing about the not-Zeta picture is that the dude in the shot with her could be interpreted as ANTONIO SMITH, given his overcoat and all. I mean, it probably /isn't/ him, but hey.)

Joseph Garvin (dapper_anarchist) says: Dave looks bizzarely like Davan from Something Positive there.... There is a similarity, down trodden guys with violent and dangerous female friends...
Randy Goldberg (drgaellon) says: Not just Americans... NKTOB were from Boston.
