Or she's letting it grow out uncolored?

Are there any PC components of equal or lesser value than a smoothie?

*Sighs*

You know, while I really like this comic...I've noticed that, well...it violates the Babylon 5 rule.

Amd, all the character development is...back loaded. But DAMN is it fun.

Is it the value of the receipt, or the value of one smoothie?

There are components that easily cost less than an order of 4 to 6 large smoothies with add-in "boosters" at some of these smoothie places.

I love the idea of their hair colors mixing as they come to terms.

He starts off with light hair and dark eyebrows, she with the reverse.
Then their colors start mixing in the previous comic. And in this one, she and he are half-and-half - and each one's eyebrows, it turns out, always matched the hair color of the other!

Yay more Lily-healthiness!

I donno if it's fair to hold that against the dialogue-less post-ending epilogue artwork.

Smoothies can ramp up a bit if you put like herbal/energy/vitamin/etc shots into 'em... and while most PC components are still more expensive, I can imagine there'd be some cheap enough ones, especially if Lily's shop deals in used parts. Old CD/DVD/floppy drives, and the like. Maybe even like, smaller monitors many folks don't want anymore. Among new things, perhaps small USB paraphernalia like flash drives, wireless connectors, and charging cables. Cables in general, actually -- hdmi, cat5, etc, can be cheap enough if you avoid overpriced brands and don't get super long ones.

Also, of course, it's possible to get like five smoothies, say, one for everybody in your pentad, just to name a random example off the top of my head, and then that should be enough to cover a wider swath of PC components. :)

Customers probably do use it the other way around more. Maybe Bruce doesn't mind.

Pardon me, Chimerasame. I wasn't clear. My issue is that the epilogue comics, to an extent, are more 'interesting' then the main story, in the sense that there is more active character development, and such.

Like...Max never really LEARNS anything in the comic. Jamie mainly learns 'what he needs to learn'. Ellen doesn't really learn that much. Lily never learns anything. Gina just takes the first step. The character who shifts things is only introduced in the very end.

That said...I LOVE the comic. Part of it is, honestly? I wish there were more then 1,000 strips!

Trouble is, Tailsteak often has a deadline, and he intends to finish by then. I was very sad to see 1/0 go...

Maybe an 8" floppy disk? Or a SCART cable? A copy of "Dvorak's Guide to PC Gaming"?
