NEK: Sorry, can’t understand a word you’re saying…

    Nice… but why is Bubblegum in the page… kinda makes no sense

    • nicokokun

      04/04/2016 at 1:41am

      Technically she is a super genius and they are currently in a restaurant for super geniuses… So I guess she had a night out since Finn stood her up…

      • 04/04/2016 at 8:32am

        It is more about the fact that PB shouldn’t even be born at this point of time, she is a post-Great Mushroom War character.

        Simon Petrikov or Betty Grof would have made much more sense.

        • nicokokun

          04/04/2016 at 8:40am

          True, true… Maybe she used the same magic in how Simon took Betty from the past and PB stayed in the past instead…

          • Santessen

            04/04/2016 at 11:10am

            Maybe she’s is playing a sort of Nibbler/Trunks role. Marcelene should be alive as a little kid at this point in time (if we assume this is pretty close to when the Great Mushroom war is going to happen) Maybe something happens to Marcie in the future (say she dies of some odd really long term disease she caught during her time escaping) and Bonnibel has come back to keep her from getting it. Or maybe they’ve finally worked out the way to reprogram the Ice Crown in this timeline so it doesn’t drive the wearer insane, and Bonnie has decided that if she can do the reprogram job BEFORE Simon gets his hands on it; Marcie will be saved an awful lot of heartache.

          • 04/04/2016 at 8:40pm

            The problem is that it is a cameo and we’ll never get into any detail about why PB is there. That’s why I said Simon or Betty was a better choice. It is hard to incorporate a cartoon which such a deep lore and ongoing story.

            Grim Tales features it indeed, but on low case. Hunson appears who isn’t a main on AT. In the Grim Tales universe Marceline is on the surface and it is post-Great Mushroom War and she probably is venturing out there with Simon.

      Oh! Thats bubblegum at first glans I didn’t even notes.

      • VoidRose

        04/05/2016 at 4:33am

        She is easy to tell since bleedman kept her art form, but the only change is her skin and some of bleedman detail handy work to make her part of the world.

    Wondering that too. Random Princess Bubblegum on an otherwise unremarkable page.

    • Plasman

      04/03/2016 at 11:26pm

      Princes Bubblegum is a scientist in Adventure time. Makes perfect sense….at least to me.

    • Santessen

      04/03/2016 at 11:38pm

      Well there may be a bit of a chronological problem here (Presumably, this is all pre Mushroom Wars, so Bonnibel shouldn’t even be BORN yet) But given the level of scientific know how she has demonstrated, it would not surprise me to know she has long since developed a time machine.

      • Grids

        04/04/2016 at 5:04am

        Simon would have been a better choice for cameo. Or Betty.

        Bleed likes to make character cameos but the way he does it is rather ignorant. Still, if Poybles is here that makes the hot date being Phoebe more likely.

        • nicokokun

          04/04/2016 at 1:28pm

          Wow… I thought my theory of her of being Phoebe would be ignored but it seems I was wrong after all XD
          Btw… I also think that Membrane is actually Dib from the future…

          I havent really seen anyone praise the comic itself.

          maybe mention parts that they liked and being curious what is happening, but no one has been saying that the story has been great.

      The title is spelling out lab coats in reference to the playground song k-i-s-s-i-n-g.
      That’s what I’m thinking anyway.

          Still a reference, not necessarily a good one.

            Yes, and it does rhyme if you remove the S at the end.

            It’s probably a reference that’s going over my head.

        Not crying. Actually laughing at the title.

        • silvercover

          04/04/2016 at 3:21pm

          so much for not enjoying the story then, eh?

          honestly speaking, bleed is likely just messing around with this comic instead of coming up with a serious and proper story. I mean, if you compare to GT that is being done by the same 2 guys, GT at least was constant in its focus of characters and we knew what the goal was, albeit they just wasted too much time. or compare to sugar bits, where some parts went offtrack, but at least we got back to the main point every other page.

          invader zim meanwhile is just randomly jumping between various characters while no real explanations for why things are happening. that being said though, the invader zim comic never really got a foot hold or a proper plot before it was abandoned, so I dont really see how people can get upset with bleed’s direction when the original one didnt even have one.

    Ah WHOA! Was there ever a time when Professor Membrane’s lower jaw ever exposed? If not then this little display goes up on the “hot” factor. PG-13

    • Plasman

      04/03/2016 at 11:28pm

      lol, no his lower…actually I don’t think his mouth was exposed at all during the shows run when you come to think of it. These ideas in the comic are wall breaking.

    I’ll go ahead and ask the question I’ve yet to see: Why are the Tallest peeping on these two? Like… is there any point behind it whatsoever, or was it because they needed SOMETHING to fill that last panel?

    • Possessedmofo

      04/04/2016 at 12:23am

      Probably the latter, makes sense to me at least.

    • NG-bios

      04/04/2016 at 12:23am

      they are watching something in the distance……its kinda obvious

      • Sigment

        04/04/2016 at 2:31am

        Well, regardless of what it is that’s on the screen, the transition feels poorly executed. The other pages had me ever so slightly optimistic, but the doubt’s starting to come back as to whether or not they actually know where they’re going with this.

    • Grids

      04/04/2016 at 5:07am

      It’s a transition I guess.

  • nicokokun

    I think it would be funny if Membrane was actually Dib who came from the future…

  • 04/04/2016 at 2:05pm

    Has anyone else notice that the reflections in the window in the second to last panel, are irkens…

    • 04/04/2016 at 2:06pm

      easter egg? Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything

      • nicokokun

        • Santessen

          04/04/2016 at 11:51pm

          I just did a comparison between the female refection in the glass and the one official picture we have of Miyuki.

          http://img11.deviantart.net/d08c/i/2007/062/b/2/tallest_miyuki_by_xpenguinxpuffx.png

          It’s a pretty good match.

          Now we just have to figure out who Membrane is He’s even taller than Miyuki which would be important in Irken society (i.e. he probably isn’t some rank and file Irken invader) Can’t be Spork (eyes are too big). Maybe the one of the unknown “Lost Tallest” (the ones between Spork and Red and Purple, who were way to young at Spork’s death to have been the next Tallests).

          • Grids

            04/05/2016 at 1:40am

            So like, a former, believed-dead Tallest in the guise of a human, inhabiting a system SO FAR away from the Irken Empire it didn’t even appear on the map when they sent Zim there (cos they wanted him far away as possible) and she’s dating the dad/older self of the one dude who seems to care about the very existence of Irkens in the first place??

            Yeah sure why not?

          • Ether101

            04/05/2016 at 9:49am

            Take note that the Tallest are cheaters. Their size comes form clearly mechanical bodies that they’re using.

          • Santessen

            04/05/2016 at 11:42am

            This would actually bring up an interesting point about Dib. Dib assumes his parents are human and more importantly that HE is human. If both of them are Irken, then he’d be PURE Irken. How the heck can he not know that? Is Irken disguise tech so good that it is possible for someone to be in disguise 24/7 and not be aware they are in disguise?

            It is part of the Canon that Dib and Tak are “clones”. I’m no longer so sure they are clones of Membrane (which ipso facto would make them pure Irken again) but rather some sort of artificial organism, Hybrids genetically created from human and Irken DNA)

            The only other idea I can come up with is that Irken hybrids have a sort of Lovecraftian Deep One thing going on, where children are born human and begin to look more and more Irken as they grow up.

            And while it is true the Tallest are cheaters using mechanical bodies, I think Irkens can grow a quite a bit taller than Zim (who if you recall is small even for an Irken) Sizzlor appears to be an Irken, and unless he has a mechanical body under his clothes, he’s pure organic and nearly as tall as the Tallest. I think that the Invaders tend to be young and not yet full grown. As they get older they keep growing and get to higher positions in the Irken Armanda (like the ship pilots who are taller than the rank and file)

            It’s probably a food thing (like with Avram Davidson’s Chuplex in Masters of the Maze) the taller you are the higher your rank, the higher your rank the better the food you get, the better the food you get, the faster you grow, and the faster you grow,the taller you get.

            Maybe that’s the real reason why the tallest are so concerned with the snack supply. In Irken society he who holds the food may hold the power.

    Ive been waiting for Bleeds stories to finish since 2005. (Surely longer) 4 comics that probably aren’t anywhere near being finished. This is a man whos somewhere in his 40’s. Maybe he shouldn’t have taken on so many comic cause at this rate he may have a heart attack.

  • Kissthethunder

    04/04/2016 at 5:52pm

    I have personally loved the story. It has been a little confusing in some parts.. But I think it’s amazing. I think Bleeds is doing a wonderful job an those who are going to judge it.. I can only say this. “Suck it up Buttercup and walk it off..” Don’t like it then don’t read the updated pages. It’s just that simple.. I adore a lot of the comics on the site here.

    • Grids

      04/04/2016 at 11:30pm

      That’s a very juvenile suggestion.

      You’re basically denying people their opinion and their right to express it. Let’s be honest here – a lot of the people here who still post and read despite the utter stagnation of three of the four comics have been here a good while.
      Long enough to remember brighter times when the three main comics were better as a whole and Zim wasn’t even a factor.

      These people still visit and read in the slim hope that something, ANYTHING improves. Because it has the ability to do so but with the exception of PPGD (which doesn’t need to improve by comparison) the other comics lack the capacity to do so thanks to those presently working on them and their general ethic toward it.

      BeeAre does a fantastic job. His pages are longer than these ones.
      Compare the size and general content of this page to some of the recent PPGD ones. You can clearly see why some people, who remember the better times, are very rightfully miffed.

      Beeare’s time isn’t eternal either. He has other things in life to deal with both creatively and personally.
      Once his time on PPGD ends (even if PPGD does not stay ended with it), he will move on.
      And then in all likelihood Bleed will turn PPGD into the same rot Zim SB and GT have become. And from that moment on, Snafu will offer next to nothing decent to all those who still come here out of loyalty nostalgia or curiousity.

      And when that happens it may be the end of Snafu.

      So that’s my opinion. I speak from a bit of personal experience but also as someone who cares about the direction things take. You gonna tell me to stfu and stop reading? Fine. I won’t heed that advice though and I doubt the others will either. That advice ain’t kosher.

      • 04/05/2016 at 12:24am

        PERSONALLY with the forums already dead, Snafu is already dead- as is its image. Honestly, seeing how many people still want to see GT, maybe there’s just something in it that I don’t see. A modern age that doesn’t care about pacing, storyline progression, writer integrity, and well thought out plot lines. I… honestly don’t see the appeal anymore. The Zim comic has been progressing pretty well in my opinion, but I feel that GT being in suspended animation is a blessing in disguise. Every update made me want to groan. Minnie’s character is fucked, Mimi’s character is fucked, Chi as an entire concept was handled poorly- while instead of being an extension of Mimi, which she SHOULD have been, she’s her own character, and a MAIN character at that. PPGD’s only major problem is an overindulgence in waxing poetic and thinking too large. I mean, this story arc was 10 years in the making. You DON’T do that. It’s like Charlie Brown being 7 years old for 30 years.

        • Grids

          04/05/2016 at 1:48am

          Grim Tales was meant to be a dark and sometimes comedic take on the more twisted cartoons that inhabit the same combined universe as the colourful ones from PPGD.

          But now it’s a cluttered mess with more soap opera content than your grandma’s DVR backblog. If after all this time GT updated with the exact same tone, pace and logic would it REALLY be so welcome?
          What it needs is a kick in the pants. Or a soft reset.

    • 04/05/2016 at 1:03am

      My original theory based on rumblings behind the scene was due to Bleedman being upset with fan reaction towards Nek regarding GT, but I don’t think that’s the case anymore. It’s very possible that they’re just holding onto it to pre-write new pages and release them at a good pace to keep a good fanbase?
