    Some comic symbols can transcend cultures, while others are more unique. When making comics its best to make sure you know your audience and to use symbols theyll be able to recognize and understand.

    In Japan its believed that if you think about sexual things your blood will boil, causing a nosebleed. This is why male characters in Anime tend to gush blood at the sight of scantily clad females.

    To Anime and Manga fans and Japanese people, the symbol of gushing blood will be immediately recognizable. But show bloody nosed characters to outsiders and theyll be VERY confused, and maybe even a little disturbed.

    I hate getting nosebleeds, no matter how many times it happens to me I still think "Where the hell is this blood coming from?" for about five seconds until I realise.


    The funny thing is that you couldn't understand what the purpose of this strip if Preston didn't put a disclaimer below.
    I don't read manga or watch anime and generally dislike the culture around it and I got it?

    Not really, he says the blood fucking boils.

    It's just an old wives tale that says that mens blood pressure increases when they are sexual aroused which can cause nose bleeds. It's probably what he meant with boiling, but it's a ridiculous word to use and sounds painful as fuck.

    Man he really made himself look like a grumpy person that doesn't know how to play along a joke here. Good job.

    And yeah as far as I know the bleeding nose thing is supposed to imply the blood from the head is rushing downwards at such speed it causes a nosebleed. Why you'd take that any more serious than the phrases of butterflies in your stomach or boiling with rage is beyond me.

    that the blood literally boils is the japanese myth. Myth meaning before modern understanding of blood pressure and nosebleeds

    So wait, why does that poster in the background say "Andrew Dobson" if the character is supposed to be named Tom Preston? I thought the character Tom Preston was supposed to just be inspired by Andrew Dobson's life, not literally be Dobson using a different name.

    I mean he was probably just too lazy to change the name but holy crap.

    Well, no.

    The point he has been making is that, yes, it is him, but no, it isn't part of his daily life or real life experiences and has nothing to do with himself, but rather his career.

    That's all. It's flat out supposed to be him, that's the point of the comic, since he's the cartoonist and he has all these crazy wacky insanely interesting events and things going on and skills to share and such through his comic. He also has an amazing amount of well thought out arguments and criticism that he wants to convey through his comics.

    Like, how everyone sucks and there is no possible way to figure out whether or not people like what he makes, or how grumpy old perverted men are grumpy old perverted men that hates the living shit out of you and want to force feed you all the "right things to do" which is completely wrong because getting criticism from people that know their shit is not OK. Not that getting criticism from people that don't know their shit is OK either, if anything that's even worse.

    Yes, oddly enough when one gets stiff, thier blood pressure actually decreases.
    As well as the other occurrences like blushing actually causes decreases too.

    Maybe because all of that blood is being pumped into the penis?

    I don't see anything wrong with this one? And God forbid he uses a reference to draw an actual location, I mean nobody in the whole wide world ever does that do they?

    The joke was even a bit funny.

    Never implied it was wrong to use references, but in this example, he kinda failed at it (it looks like an airport). He could use several photos of that location instead of using just a single one, to have a better idea of the architecture.

    Also I'll admit I chuckled a bit at this one (though Dobson didn't actually write the joke).

    The photo kinda looks like an airport to me too tbh

    Speaking of airports:


    Airport security seems to be robots with limited expression/movement and beady little LED eyes now... also just noticed the disney font for the signature lol




    just found this under airport too lol



    with this description:
    The way I imagine the enchanting Marian from "Airport Fantasy" by Doug.

    "A beautiful blond-haired brown-eyed woman, with a full chest that led the way about 6 inches in front of her. Her other features were, to me, phenomenally more impressive. She had an average waistline, thinnish arms, and no double-chin. But her lower body was massive. Wide hips that flared out at almost 90 degree angle from her waist, on either side. She was practically resting her arms on top of them. As she approached, I could also see a small pot belly. But I became most worried when I moaned out loud as she passed and I got a view from behind. And what a behind it was! Each spherical cheek seemed to have this same amazing ninety degree flaring quality described by the hips. They were so big, I had to look away for a moment. It didn't help that the thin off-white sun dress she wore had a waist fitting seam that pulled the material up around her waist and made it flare off in all directions southward. So, obviously, because of the hanging quality of her dress, I didn't get to see much else. One other thing that couldn't escape my attention was how each cheek's upper rim had a distinct jiggle to it with each step she took that made the material wiggle around on top of it. "


    In my opinion, this story starts off nicely but then goes downhill really fast, mostly because it's all been horribly rushed. I think it has a lot of wasted potential... Then again, the part on the airport is so... visually stunning, that I keep returning to it time after time ;p
