I LOVE the change! It adds a lot to the strip and makes it even more humorous.

I love the live additions, Bernie!!

More please!!

I like, but mostly for its uniqueness- why not leave it something special, an irregular surprise guest kinda thing. Then it retains its ‘oh, look!’

I masticate daily :)

Real humans certainly add something special to the speed dating episodes, but I agree that it shouldnt be too frequent or the novelty will soon wear off.

I’d speed hit her! ohwait! I’m already in the strip too!

Would you be willing to do a forum “casting call”.. people standing in front of
various places, a bus, a building… Or doing something in an action pose in front of a white wall, or other thing easily cropable/cut-pasteable??
Just a thought…

I think Preston needs to try Speed Dating sometime…

That last panel put a horrible, horrible image in my mind.

I love the comic, and this strip is no exception. Any comic that has the potential for audience participation has got my support.

Are you still going to update the back catalogue with live action figures?

I like it, but I’m so used to seeing dolls for everything it looks out of place.

At first I was opposed to live vs. dolls but now I think I would rather see live not dolls. Besides the live girls are dolls so far anyway. I like the criteria you have set for the strip so far. but if it expands I will not complain. You sir have won me over.

We love it, Bernie! We won’t mind if there is a parallel thread running continuously about speed dating. Your readers will share enough experiences to give you ideas for a year’s worth of strips.

As long as they behave like dolls, I’m fine. Um, that doesn’t sound like I MEANT it to… oh well.

The Barbie dolls are hotter.

I think I like the action figure women better. It’s consistent with the world and forms no disconnect in my mind with the fact that Abe is an action figure. Imagine if their old roommate was an actual woman – wouldn’t have worked as well. The real people take away from the miniature set quality that I like about the strip.

Depends on the real girl. Erin is great! Just the right mix of attitude and believability.

November 10, 2010 at 5:39 am

Great change – refreshing every once in a while. However in general, prefer the dolls for comic effect.

November 10, 2010 at 12:44 pm

I think real people for non-essential characters works fine. You already do have real people in the strip anyway, and the background has the odd real person in it. As long as main characters don’t become live-people, I think what you’re doing works fine, and having the odd guest getting their mug in AvP is just fine by me :)

The speed dating comics are always hilarious! Especially since this one has some eye candy to look at! ;)

November 10, 2010 at 6:33 pm

I’d like to add that what Erin does in this comic would have been impossible with a doll – without any lines, the doll would have more or less sat still for three panels. Now, with Erin, she tells a whole story without saying anything…

i think it looks great! adds more attitude. I wouldn’t mind being a guest girl in a speed dating panel. :) then again, i wouldn’t mind dating Abe either. ;)

Careful, he double-bites!
