I'm not sure how I feel about the new Gary. What's that feeling that's the opposite of contempt?

No, that's a bit much. I'll go with less contempt.

“Disdain” may come near, then.

That's what I'm looking for! I now have mere disdain for Gary.

If he keeps it up, who knows. If he keeps it up, he just might even climb as high as indifference.

Wow, J, you actually made Giz laugh.

And she even wrote a reply to let you know about it.

From now on, we'll all have to tip our hats in respect every time you visit the forum... :ymapplause:

Wait, this is the last volume of Ma3? Where is the memo? Here's hoping everything goes well.
Read the Twitter under the comic, they're shutting the whole works down.

Gary finally grows a spine and you now have disdain for Gary? May I ask why? Do you like any of the other characters in the comic besides Yuki?

Gary goes on and improves and becomes a success, while Zii goes down into a pile of ashes...could be an interesting way to end the comic :o

There you go, Gary. You managed to be something resembling vertebrate life and it paid off.

Try to enjoy it before life drops the other shoe.

“With great power comes great responsibility.” People forget that’s traditionally read as a metaphor for adolescence. Uncle Ben didn’t know that Peter had superpowers, but he knew that Peter was growing up.

And Gary is entering a long-delayed adulthood here. So if there is another shoe, that’s what it really ought to be. Gary “growing a spine” surely has to mean more than him walking away from blatant idiot plots and getting laid the way he likes it, nice though those are for him. If he carries on being just as inert as before, just refusing bad stuff, then he’ll be even more boring in the next 130 strips than he was in the previous 1,360. So hopefully, the “other shoe” has to mean Gary proactively doing what’s right and taking full responsibility for his own story, even at some risk to himself.

Well since Dillon's comic is returning in January I'm wondering if there is going to be another crossover between the two comics culminating in a Grand Finale for both comics since Giz said that both comics will wrap up in around January 2019.
