Okay, seriously, fuck Blossom. She hears Shauna tell Daz "Hey stop leading my friend on, she's inexperienced with boys," and hears Daz reply "I don't want her anyway she's ugly and miserable" and that makes her mad at Shauna? Mad enough to fucking destroy Shauna's life with the secret she told her in confidence, a confidence she has by virtue of being pretty much the only fucking person in the world who's willing to put up with Blossom's bullshit?

>>77665227
Maybe she sees it as Shauna trying to intentionally sabotage the only mildly-successful relationship with a boy she has ever had, just so Shauna can keep her as a poor soul who needs fixing, forever. Like an injured pet that the owner nurses to health and then breaks its legs again so that they have something to fix again. Also, maybe telling Daiz that she has never even held hands with a boy was one of her secrets as well?

She's still a massive shit though, luckily knowing John Allison she'll get sucked up by aliens from Hell and never be seen again.
>>
>>77665227
Well in the onion alien case, Blossom do a shity move like this with Corky... so no surprise for me.

They probably are too old to continue lurking on /co/. Also Alison's comics doesn't produce memes like QC or Dumbing.

So are Jack and Mildred going to screw at this wedding? More importantly is Lipton going to tap dat?
>>
>>77665227

I think it indicates the main problem with Shauna's notion of turning Blossom into her new project. People aren't mysteries and you can't 'solve' them. Blossom was never going to turn around and become a new person because somebody showed her friendship. She's a vindictive, spiteful person who delights in inflicting pain and to expect her to be anything else is foolish.
>>
>>77667550
Because this comic is actually good and Alison is a cool guy. There is no useless drama like QC or Dumbing of Age.

That being said, when Bad Machinery or Scary Go Round is mentioned on /co/ only good civil discussion occurs. Usually short and succinct. Everyone agrees they enjoy reading it and enjoy it when it gets posted on /co/ refreshing to see others with good taste.

I like Lottie but dating her is a murder-suicide pact in the making.
>>
>>77669643
Wait, who's dating Lottie?
>>
>>77669667
Shit, I meant Claire. Fuck. Little turned to Lottie in my head.

We all know Lottie is married to Mystery. Maybe she'd be into a threeway somewhere down the line, but that marriage is unbreakable.
>>
>>77668140
The closest thing to a meme I've seen on SGR is J'ACCUSE
>>
>>77669643
Colm date her for like 3 years or something. Maybe she is still overcompensate for the break-up. But i don't see a chance for Linton here. The moment Colm make a move, she will jumping back to him.
>>
>>77669032
It doesn't take too long to clear out.
>>
>>77669760
"Her" being Claire not Lottie like I stupidly posted, natch.

It's hard to say what'll go down if Colm makes a move. Maybe he'll deck Linton and Claire will dig/hate that. Maybe he'll show a more sensitive side and she'll dig/hate it. John Allison frequently throws curveballs.
>>
>>77669798
Well Claire is not exactly a normal person by and means. She is a potencial arsonist. The cute things she does, always have a creepy element. And probably she was a over attached girlfriend.
>>
>>77669867
Oh, no doubt. I understand Colm's regret in leaving her, but I'd probably be suffocated.
Perhaps it is a good death.
>>
>>77669183
This, Lottie has been saying this the whole time and got ignored

>She is a potencial arsonist

Wait, what? I've clearly forgotten something.

>>77671388
I think the first story she pops up in, there's a spate of arsons, and it's strongly hinted she done it

What a weird beginning to a years-long relationship.
>>
>>77673608
holy shit
>>
>>77671411
She straight up said she did it at the end, because she just likes fire. She only burned abandoned buildings, and felt horrible when she almost hurt someone with one of her fires (the bridge troll guy who ran inside one of her burning buildings to get his fox friend). The comic's too fucking long to find the page but I'm like 99% positive that is the way it went down.

>>77669643
I know you meant to say Claire, but what about Lottie's love life? She's never shown any interest in dudes. She might be asexual or something but for some reason I'm getting an impression that this particular arc ends with her and Shauna kissing.
>>
>>77673891
Lottie is married to MYSTERY
she'll probably end up like Shelley and just fuck interesting dudes from time to time without ever committing
>>
>>77673891
Shauna's dated Jack and sort of dated Corky until Blossom sabotaged that. There was also that guy in the arc with the time portal, when Mildred and Lottie went back in time and changed the timeline, Shauna was dating another dude who got erased from existence later. Lottie's sexuality may be up in the air, but I'm pretty sure Shauna's straight.
>>
>>77673891

I'm fairly certain Lottie has DR 50/mysteries
>>
>>77674425
In the last arc she had some sort of atraction to Tuan, but ends in nothing.

Well said. I love this comic and wish more people read it. It's a witty little slice of life with charming characters. It's not trying to beat you over the head with some message. And sometimes there's aliens and ghosts and machine elves and important sexy characters get erased from existence and become literally satan.

Oh, yeah, the one by the guy that did Beautiful Darkness.

Scary-Go-Round is pretty damn close to that.

Is it worth it to go through all of Scary-Go-Round and Bad Machinery?

I've been reading since 2006, but every thread I've attempted has died.

Try making dailies; I'll attend.

>>77683083

Linton, no.

Now Claire will think you're a complete thug and you'll have to go back to drawing your waifus.

>>77667550
Threads die m8.

I mostly suspect you're all Aussies because these threads never get any traction during EST evenings.
>>
>>77669643
Claire's like, kinda nuts. She's not Shelley's full on mega crazy, or Rachel's "make a pact with the literal devil" crazy. That said, I think Lottie's more grounded than Mildred.

I'm still pissed he killed off The Boy, but I'm not mad at Allison. I'm glad he decided to continue on with Bad Machinery, and I didn't think Bobbins was bad, he just didn't know what to do with those characters. He's ashamed of it sadly, and I can't seem to find any of those strips online.

>worth it to go through all of Scary-Go-Round and Bad Machinery?

The various stories are rewarding individually; but you do not need the background to understand each "case" which lasts about six months. This one began http://www.scarygoround.com/?date=20150720 (see pic). The back-references from Bad Machinery to Scarygoround are there but not reliable and John Allison stated he's deliberately avoided requiring the reader know them. And there's always the http://tackleford.wikia.com/wiki/Tackleford_Wikia .

Yeah but you have to try, that's important. If you don't try you're even more of a weenie than if you lose.

Anyone else think this is pretty cute?

Did he ever draw anyone else drunk or high or hypnotized or anything? I like when he shifts into surreal imagery and such.
>>
>>77686368
Back in the SGR days hypnotism and alcohol and such came up more frequently, as it was a story about young adults not young teens.
>>
>>77683114
Worth it? If you like Bad Machinery you'll probably like SGR, I love both. Neither is required reading for the other but it's fun to recognize callbacks.
