Some Comic of Mine 003 by DanShive Some Comic of Mine 003 by DanShive
DES Comics Folder

I would normally upload this on Friday, but I wanted to show someone it NOW(!), so here it is.

I don't really like that the first instance of women in the comic are these two, but the third main character yet to be introduced should help redeem me somewhat when she shows up ^^;

Anyway, this comic has several levels that amuse me:

Panel 1 - Statement of myth regarding Goldfish memory that exists to make us feel better about keeping them in small bowls.

Panel 2 - Denouncement of previously mentioned myth regarding Goldfish memory.

Panel 3 - Even more outlandish claim regarding Goldfish memory.

Panel 4 - Statement of myth regarding Goldfish memory that exists to make us feel better about keeping them in small bowls.

For the record, I suspect that with such simple Goldfish minds, they're fine in what we give them. A little castle or something might be kewl, but I think they're ok.

This comic also establishes three things about Steve (that's right, STEVE; he's named after a friend of mine who is very different from him):

1 - He is a very silly man.
2 - He wasn't kidding about that "dates for the weekend" comment in the first comic.
3 - He looks DAMN sexy in a lab coat, and I'm man enough to say it :)

Edit - Huh. Goldfish should be one word, shouldn't it? That's what I get for making it at three in the morning last Thursday... well, technically Friday ^^;

Oh really? I always thought it was true. Not 'cause it makes me feel better, but because then I could make my "I have the memory of a goldfish" joke.

Haha.

Fun goldfish fact-they actually have long term memory. They can actually be trained(mythbusters trained goldfish for an episode, and they displayed the ability to repeat the things they were trained to do.)

Hahaha, awesomeness. I really love how you were able to make it both relevant to the last comic AND how this one comic alone is amazing and stand by itself.

Which is good, 'cause that's what you meant to do, 'cause of the whole 'college paper' thing.

Steve is pretty cool...even if he does act like a bit of a jerk sometimes...he's the kind of jerk who's not out to do it for the sake of being a jerk, but rather because he's well-meaning, but just happens to have an ego that is exponentially related to the number of women in the same room (or failing that, a 1-mile radius) as him.

Also, that girl who isn't buying the folder looks a lot like Tedd from EGS...and he would not like that. XD Heh...

And also also, that fish certainly IS a fish! Good call, fish!

For some reason, the statement "I'm a fish!" is perhaps the best thing I've read all day. I don't know why. It just trancends reason, and is comedic gold. I would buy that folder, whether the fish's memory was three seconds, photographic, or even racial (remembering stuff passed down from descendants). That fish is just that cool, with its statements and all.

Even if that myth was true (alas that the MythBusters can't really test it), it makes you wonder about bugs. How long would a bug's memory be, then? Personally, I see creatures like goldfish and bugs as too powered by instinct to really need much of a memory anyway, so it's okay.

Isn't it supposed to be that they have a three minute memory? Or was it five? Makes sense, since their brains are so small.

I love the expressions. They're great. Especially the second panel. XD

Thats hilarious. Makes me think of all the times I've wanted to wear a suit and run through an office building making ridiculous demands, before promptly exiting the premises.

Definitely the funniest of these so far.

heh, mythbusters confirmed that goldfish do have a good memory, and if you think about it a 3 second memory is terrible for survivability. The poor creatures wold never be able to find food supplies, mates, or know which predators to avoid.

Nah, I'm just thinking too much, I like the fishy matrix idea better ^_^

Bah-hahaha! Silly goldfish...Everyoe knows that they're smarter than they act, Jamie Hynamen proved it! He trained them to debunk most myths regarding pez and lighter fluid.

Fun fact: The Myth-terns are actually goldfish in robotic suits.

For some reason I really like the line "It's like a fishy matrix"
Gives me images of a Goldfish Neo... sunglasses and all...

And that image makes me feel warm inside. Like hot chocolate.
...I'm going to go make hot chocolate.

I'm planning one, but it's too dependent on this comic to stand alone for an entry in the paper, so it will likely only be on DA or wherever once it's made.

If I made two hot chocolates, this would be the time when I give you one.
But I didn't, so we're gonna have to go with "it's the thought that counts"

Assuming I have time, it will be #005, as I gotta have #004 done first. Given how I plot to make the comic, the neo-goldfish one should be pretty quick to do, but not quick enough to put it before the next one for the paper.
