I loved this drama arc. Gets us to love the characters deeper [well some of us] and makes us more involved with the later funny.

If pyro and sniper-tan have a child, it'll probably end up growing up to be a spy after finding years of pyro training to be futile.

over 13 years ago
surely it HAS a chance to the pryo guy jr. to be a spy jr. but genetiaclly it's has more chance to be a normal pyro. or else it would have some spy detail, like... the paper mask when a spy from the same team as you is disguised. and about the cheating, both did it, and neither of them know.

[url=#user_comment_42103]@Ugh[/url] I still say that there are questions that need answering and that this thing needed to be confronted and dealt with. So I also blame Heavy and Medic too. Philip Wylie said it best: "Ignorance is not bliss. It is oblivion".
almost 14 years ago
[url=#user_comment_42103]@Ugh[/url] I don't disagree (hence I said, "Some" standards). Not to mention the fact that Pyro and Sniper are both still in the wrong (I don't think the affair with Engie-tan was faked, I think Pyro may have reached out to her in anger as well).
Ugh

@Lou Nolastnamegiven: ...

Don't have an affair with the kid's mom. Don't take evidence of the affair. Don't fake evidence of another affair. Don't give faked evidence to their friends.

DON'T HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH THE KID'S MOM. THAT'S HOW YOU DON'T HARM THE KID.
almost 14 years ago
I think Spy backed off because he knew his actions would harm an innocent. Even though that innocent has the blood of his enemy (the pyro), he could not bring himself to harm a child (even indirectly).

This shows that the Spy has "some" standards.
almost 14 years ago
Given the continuity issues (namely that all the events are on the time-line as updates in our time), it is clear to me now that Pyro Jr. cannot be the son of the Spy (since the affair occurred after his birth, and for the reasons Disco Stu pointed out).

Look. I love your comic. Really. But this ending, given the buildup...well, it seems really mean spirited. Not you. Just the ending itself. It just seems like this whole arc was just character assassination. It just seems unnecessary.

I got a song more appropriate for this situation:

"Fuck what i said it don't mean a shit now .Fuck the presents , might as well throw 'em out .
Fuck all those kisses , they didn't mean jack .
fuck you , you hoe
I don't want you back ."

That goes for all of them.
Disco Stu
almost 14 years ago
Now one argue that Spy was saying the first point just to save his neck (or the relationship for the sake of his "son")

But that still leaves the second issue open.

Not to mention that there is no timeline for the Engie/Pyro realtionship. So there's that factor.

Ugh...what a headache.
Disco Stu
almost 14 years ago
(Continued)

1. This negates spy's line that they were "fairly committed" since they were having an affair during the "good times"

2. This negates spy's line that he and sniper did it because she was angry and not thinking clearly.

See? We still have a problem here.
Disco Stu
almost 14 years ago
[url=#user_comment_41978]@Chrono[/url] A good theory, except then that negates what has been seen thus far. IF Sniper was having an affair BEFORE the big fight (and judging from her dialogue it was the first major one), then two issues occur:...

Maybe Spah is actually a dimension-hopping Pyro Jr.! He was lusting for his mother and went to this dimesnsion to bang a hot version of her, and then did this confusing arc to ensure that this version of PJR still has a happy home.

And yes, I realize how stupid that sounds. Waiting for reactions.

Hey kids, want something fun to do? Well then here we go. Edit pyro jr. in the last frame to sport the RED colors, then make up some long story of how pyro jr. is actually RED spy x sniper-tan. RED spy did this because he wanted pyro to kill the BLU spy and cause all sorts of havoc within BLU.
Sable

I just might have a theory.
Enemy spy disguised as Spah and banged Sniper-tan,
Spah gets evidence, but knows noone will beleive him since he's a spy,
Gives evidence to medic and heavy to get rid of,
and finally, why does he care?
My guess, Spah is Pyro-guys brother and thus, Pyro Jr's uncle.

I think Medic is worried Heavy-tan might put on weight from all those sandwiches. Not a worry, as she must get plenty of exercise.

I'm a little disappointed that the truth didn't come out of this it's bad for a relationship to have lies like that. However, I seriously doubt pyro-kid is spy's kid. I think spy really liked (maybe loved) sniper-tan and is looking at the picture thinking that could be him with her and with a kid.

If Pyro Jr can turn invisible when he gets older, like his told him Pyro's could, then we'll know for sure. Till then, next story pls. Also, final 3 panels: Panel one, spah holding coffee in left hand. Panel 2: Spah holding picture in left hand. Panel 3: no hand at all, (but there prob should be)

@Sylvester Ink: How's it been retconned? This is the end of the arc. It just shows life afterwards, you idiot.

So a final fantasy (13) comic after this to tie off the silly character development of people who play a game made in 07?
Sylvester Ink

Seems to me that Jo is aware of the screwup he did with introducing the "affair" in the first place and this is his way of retconning it out of the storyline. I never cared for it myself and I'm glad it's over. I'm sure the writing will be back on par now that the author has corrected this error.

So all that build-up, all that work, was leading up to a non-ending?

I stuck with you after you abandoned silence for lengthy dialog. Didn't like it, but hey, you were still good.

But this..? This comes dangerously close to Buckley territory. Drama without purpose.

I also wanted to add that I very much enjoyed your early textless storytelling style. Wouldn't mind seeing a return to that once in a while.

Mini-Pyro could've been adopted by Pyro-guy and Sniper-tan. Or well this could be a different kid that they had together.

Jo, forget about the negative people. Keep up the good work.

To counteract all the whiners a little I must say good work Jo, I did enjoy this arc alot and I'm happy to see that you didn't decide to take the tv soap route having to milk every possible little thing for maximum drama. That sort of shit never ends well.
Joy

Jo, I'm not sure what you're game is, but I have to tell you that I'm not liking it.

Ambiguous endings are only effective when used sparingly. Otherwise they just get annoying. Be careful.

Wow. Nice way to curve-ball that ending, even if it was rather predictable to some (I really should've seen it coming XD)

So...spy is now drifter class!

[url=#user_comment_41754]@Thiel[/url] Accept it? No. No, we do not. That's a bullshit argument. If I don't like something, I criticize it. I don't care if it's his work, his mother's work, or the work of Jack Kirby come back from the grave. If I do not enjoy the product, I will criticize the shit out of it.

To all of you people complaining, it's the creator's work. Not your own. You have to accept it, complete with the downs that may come.

And I for one think that this is in fact an up. I liked the arc quite a bit, actually. Very nice work. :3

Just shut up if you didn't like it? I'm pretty sure the creator already knows a lot of people won't like this turn of events. Just shut up and keep reading. I'm pretty sure you like this comic enough that this won't ruin the entire thing for you.

I sure hope you don't stop using these characters, since they have long since evolved from the TF2 avatars into there own living, breathing characters, you can still do a lot with the characters you have evolved, and it would be a shame to see them just left on some curb somewhere in the internet.

[url=#user_comment_41735]@Seg[/url]: That's what has me puzzled about the whole thing. By that logic, that means the "Home-wrecker" arc takes place before the "White Lies" strip from a year ago when Mini-Pyro made his debut.

But not that. Not a long rant about her failures in life. There wasn't even a cuss word thrown in for good measure. Just "useless". God forbid he doesn't take out the trash, she might have a gangbang in their bedroom.
Ok, what, WHAT!?
almost 14 years ago
The entire set-up was crap in the first place. Pyro calls her useless, and this is the driving force behind her SLEEPING WITH ANOTHER MAN!? There could have been a back-hand hit or some kind of physical abuse involved, that would have been believable for a supposedly loving wife to have an affair.

Considering how old Pyro Jr. is... how long did Spy and Sniper-tan... affair, went on?
Also, kinda cool to tie up several storylines into a single comic. Heavy's mini-medic friend came from Entire Team is Baby arc, and ended studying with Pyro Jr. that is the son *cough* of Pyro Guy.

What a nice ending. I wonder though, maybe spy made fake relationship with pyro-guy and engie-tan because he didn't want the kid expierence something like this. and [url=#user_comment_41692] @Remi[/url] that is a camera beard and he is in speact mode meaning all his things are gray, so no he is not jewish.
