Aaaaaand…. First!

Trumpets…

The comic in itself is great.

The first time, I think the tensions between Aliens and Predators are mentioned by Abe and Preston.

Although that is a bit out of character with the usual aLp comic (which is so funny especially because it ignores this fact), it is nicely dealt with in the last panel. That, indeed, is an event of great social importance for these two representants of the specieses.

And what makes the above observations an achievement, is that I was making them while dancing the first post dance.

I don’t get it. I don’t drink (only 17 years old), so I guess I wouldn’t. The reason Predators hunt Aliens is explained in Steve and Stephani Perry’s book “Alien vs. Predator: Prey”. It’s a very, very good book. I suggest you all read it.

People keep on writing me asking me why I stopped using action figures. So I put up the big-ass disclaimer at the top announcing Guest Week. And still they write.

Stop it, please.

Quick version of the joke for those who don’t get it: Miller Lite commercials for years were (and still are) based on the argument that Miller Lite is both less filling and tastes great (subject to each drinker’s opinion)… but which is the true reason?

It might have peaked with the infamous catfight commercial from a year or two ago during the Super Bowl (it still may be at ifilm.com)

That just made me wonder if there are any screwballs who are actually doing the first post dance physically, in real life… behind their computer… which again proves I myself am a complete screwball thinking about stuff like this.

Why do you hate me? I’m just trying to help keep poor Bernie afloat!

And regarding the reason that Predators hunt Aliens… within the context of the comic, I thought it might be funny to make it about something totally pedestrian. Perhaps suggesting that Abe and Preston have been living on Earth so long, Preston doesn’t really know the reason anymore and is just pulling something out of context from his time on Earth.

Y’see… there are *layers* to this thing! It’s very subversive!

I think this is the best guest strip so far =D i mean obviously the guest strips can’t be as good as B’s because we are used to his style but they are still good.
And im sorry but did anyone else start laughing when joshe said he didn’t drink cause he was 17? ^_^ I suppose its different for Americans, can’t drink till you are 21 but hey buy a gun at 18.

meh, I dont know, I think the comic is funnier when it isn’t so referential to the movies/comics/etc, when its just an alien and a predator being roommates….

so this one didnt wow me, not gonna lie, though, I chuckled…or did I chortle??? hmmm…..

…You realize that was a joke, right? I mean, it’s a comic strip, and all.

This was fun. I like the drawing style, and the punch line was great. Yeah, I miss Bernie’s strips, but I think the guest strips are filling in wery well. Ooh! Can I do one? Purty please?? Somebody else will have to write the jokes for me, but I’ll draw. If I wrote the jokes, it would be just…severely lame. But pretty.

We don’t. Everybody, tell him we don’t. We really appreciate it dude!

And to the guy going all “this is not trule Alien vs. Predator”: of course not, you fool: it’s Alien loves predator! That’s been the whole freakin’ joke all the time.

Who started the whole first post dance thing anyway? Because I thought you did and I always imagine your avatar doing silly dance moves and that really makes me giggle inside.

Hey bernieh.
Will we ever see Preston’s family?
Are they dissapointed in him?
Do they no he’s best friends with the thing they hunt?
Did he have a predator girlfriend?
There could be lots of stories here.
LUV your comix!!
