139- Your bucket is showing.

Sorry this took longer than usual. I’m still really busy with moving and prepping for my new job. Plus I’ve been having an issue with my contact lenses and allergies that leaves me unable to see clearly much of the time (to me I am typing little smedges rather than letters, sorry for what will probably be a copious amount of typos.).

Anyway Things may still be slow for a while longer.at least until I’m settled in at my new apartment and job.

    Jordi does not look o.k.

  2. Shubbz

    Scouts back. And he has a bucket now. We're all saved. πŸ˜€

  3. Orin J.

    poor dead tired Engie. i hope he's not one of the ones that're gonna die before the ending, because i'm sure his son would love to see his rad's awesome robot hand!

  4. Wombat

    Aww, I wanna give Engie a big hug. He looks so tired, and kinda sad in the ninth panel. I hope he makes it back.

    Oh God I hope this doesn’t follow the pattern of my favorite characters dying in everything I read D:

  5. CaZsm

    I’m just worried that hit family might have moved on. Unless they knew he was going to be gone for a long time?

    I don’t know.

  6. DoctorLeft

    Everyone realizes that woking on a van for a few hours doesn't mean that Engie is going to collapse the second it starts up, right?

    The water spigot is a nice touch that really makes it feel like the 1960s.

  7. Krentist

    "You kinda remind me of my son"

    Ah fuck, I dunno why but I'm worried he's going to be the next to die

  8. ArtemisRampant

    Aww, Engie <333 (I don't know why Engineers always endear themselves to me so much, but Engie is just so sweet.)

    To all the predictions that Scout's next on the hit list: no. Not happening. I actually don't think I can handle that.

  9. LaGoingLoco

    Aw Engi looks so tired. Also everybody being scared that somebody else will die, makes me worry as well. COLLECTIVE HYSTERIA!!!1111one

  10. CommanderCooper

    I wonder how Engi's family will react to his new hand.

    Hey, if he can't find a job in Texas, he can go into prosthesis work.

  11. Engineer

    My kingdom for an Engi hug

  12. adiosToreador

    tHIS IS, UH, bORDERLINE PORNOGRAPHIC, aND, iT MAKES ME, uNCOMFORTABLE,

  13. 404 name not found

    And then it turns out that Rojo's forehead is actually made out of reinforced steel and so he survived.

    Then he comes back and kills them all.

    Seriously, why do I feel like Rojo is still alive ._.

  14. Sniper008

    Why i got feelings about dead Engie and Scout eez his son ?

  15. gallowsCalibrator

    D–> This is very 100d

    D–> I think I may need a towel

  17. GreenSentry

    LOL

  18. Rodrigo

    Silly Engy. Just hit it with your wench until it's working again. Or hit it with your robot hand.

  19. Orin J.

    you're still suffering from post-tramatic spy disorder. stay close you the Pyro and take deep, even breaths.

  20. Somebody

    Oh.

  21. What was that?

    Did somebody say "Maggots?"

  22. kittengrl39

    What, this strip specifically? *checks* I can't see much… unless maybe you have a bucket fetish. If so, then yeah, it's pretty hot and heavy.

  23. kittengrl39

    You know, if I saw those last two panels alone at the start of a strip, I'd think Scout was coming in to talk to the corpse of someone he killed. Not sure why that scenario leaps into my mind.
    Nobody die for a while, okay? We need a breather. Also, looking forward to seeing Scout clean up Bleu.

  24. adiosToreador

    uH, tHEIR, wELL THEIR PAIL, iT'S RIGHT THERE, jUST OUT WHERE ANYONE COULD, uH, lOOK AT IT,

  36. twinArmageddons

  37. ArachnidGrip

    Oh Taaaaaaaarvos, you 8ig gru8! ::::/

  38. centaursTesticle

    D–> Nepeta, leave the digusting human site right now!

  39. carcinoGeneticist

    I'M JUST ABOUT TO FLIP MY SHIT OVER THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE, DO NONE OF YOU UNDERSTAND THE SUBTLE INTRICACIES OF MOIRAILS? I SWEAR, I COULD USE THE GRIST SAVED FROM NOT HAVING TO CREATE ANY OF YOUR PATHETIC HUMAN THINK PANS TO MAYBE ALCHEMIZE AN ATTEMPT TO GIVE A FUCK.

  40. GreenSentry

    My Math teacher makes more sense then you.

  41. Ch1

    I'm suprised no one's said this yet. For some reason I really like how you outlined Scout in the second panel.

  42. Atty

    Probably his other leg, I think that's his knee.

  43. DiaBEEtus

    "You remind me of my son."
    I- I… <:C
    (scout's face)

  44. Ranger

    I think it's still working, It's just not healing because theres nothing left to heal.

  45. Future CG

    THE HUMAN HAS A POINT.

    ALSO, STOP READING STUPID WEBCOMICS FOR GIRLS.

    NO MATTER HOW WELL WRITTEN THEY MAY BE. /:B

  46. turntechGodhead

    oh shit son motherfucker brought out a bucket
    brace for some homo erotica you freaky fucks
    passing out dicks like cheap cigars

  47. carcinoGeneticist

    IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE BUCKETS THEN STOP LOOKING AT COMICS FOR GIRLS, IDIOT.

  48. Mac

    "Hit it with your WENCH"?!? Sadist. And where did he get a girl in the first place?

  49. ectoBiologist

    i still don't get why you guys are so against buckets. i mean cmon they're just pails that carry liquid or whatnot. what we should all be focusing on here is the romanc!! i mean, i'm not a homosexual, but look at these faces and this character interaction. it's beautiful. if i wasn't sane, i'd say this was right up there with con air. but i am. so it isn't.

    …but it's close!!

  50. ectoBiologist

    oh man haha my bad i meant to say romance. whoops!!

  51. Orin J.

    what the hell is with all the trolling on the comic pages lately?

  52. z-kun

    What's the deal with all the bucket jokes?

    I hope Engie makes it back to his family alright.

    And that Scout and Spy wind up happy together…..

  53. FiniteHappiness

    Jeehzuz that's a lot of trolls ._.
    I'm semi-spazztastic waiting for the next page. I might lose it if someone else dies though >.>

  54. GreenSentry

    You are unbelievably stupid

  55. Someone who gets it.

    Oh look, we have roleplayers RP'ing as Homestuck trolls.

  56. CaZsm

    Bucket jokes, man. Grow up a bit plesβ€”

    Also either someone posted the link to this webcomic on 4chan, or we have one to five people pretending to be several different people and acting retarded everywhere.

  57. howlingArcana

    Or several fans of this (amazing!) webcomic could also be fans of Homestuck. Besides, it's benign trolling, so… no harm, no foul?

  58. kittengrl39

    Pretty sure it's something to do with Homestuck. I don't read that comic, but it looks to me like people are pretending to be the characters, who are literal trolls. I'm just going to stop reading the comments for a while.

  59. Zin

    Indeed. I mean…if they're trolls, there's no other way they can show their appreciation for such wonderful storytelling than to troll…. (By which I mean give amusement to those of us who also read HS, and are amused by the bucket comments…and maybe snorted and giggled at the noting of buckets here, as well. :B)

  60. Bagelsan

    Ah fuck, I dunno why but I'm worried he's going to be the next to die

    It might be because he's in this comic. Leading cause of Likeable-Dude-Death. πŸ˜€

  61. Bagelsan

    And a wetwipe.

  62. Kjaska

    This is a bit late since I just got out of the hospital, but:

    Best birthday present so far

  63. Monoke

    …Am i the only one here who cannot stand homestuck?

  64. Sleepy_Eyes

    No.

  65. LonelyTimeLord

    If either Jordi or Jeremy don't survive it to the end of this comic…. I'm going to give myself up to Red team… I won't be able to handle the other one being on their own if one of them dies…. please don't do it kytri!

  66. lasoville

    you are unbelievably clueless.
