… I’m sensing a theme here…
Paul conquers the net, one bikini top at a time.
probably… the minimum needed for modesty if caught before leaving/after returning, the more willing to get all over tans… would be stripping off anyway, but why make it harder than needed? would you? if there was very little chance of running into a man that would stand there gawking with only one thing on his mind? or worse, your man accidentally ogling the wrong bod… personal experience says, naked at every opportunity, stay away from people that are going to be annoying about it, it feels good, can’t be any different for women.
yes it can…
…especially if you have a Monica-type bust.
…shoulders and neck in agony from excessive nudity. Support infrastructure a necessity.
Danzier: If you had M’s boobs.. nakedness is ok, as long as little movement!
when lying down though, it depends on whether you mind them falling into your armpits!!
but we’ll need ‘R’ for that..
I call bull. There are several old equatorial cultures that failed to see any need for breast support or even coverage. While support may have it’s benefits, I suspect an “activity” as lethargic as sunbathing is quite able to be carried out without any clothes even by the well endowed.
Where’s the fun in that? Bikini’s and bathing-suits are as much a fashion statement as shoes and dresses.
Though, I basically do not care if the top is exposed -or not. I gots plenty overhere by our small recreational lake. No-one cares except for pubescent boys, that tend to trip over their own feet when they see boobage. After pair umpteen it sortof looses it’s luster 😛
But hey..guess that’s a European thing. We tend to leave the choice open for the ladies. Ogling is considered very VERY rude.
And eBay… waiting for the posting!
Who’s missing? Jin, Amanda, Phix and Nudge?
There’d have to be one per day and two on Friday to fit them all in this week.
The really tall powerful Indian lady.
She hasn’t been seen in a few years. 🙂
Lakshmi would ,indeed, be impressive in a bikini….
They should stop babbling and poit to another beach-spot. I bet there are plenty around their first hang-out, they must have spotted some more.
Experience has learnt me that thinking about a complex problem, goes better when relaxing.
You mean Lakshmi?
sorry, slow response.
Been so long that I’ve forgotten her name but thanks for letting us know. 🙂
I hate that we’ve gotten to this point in the comic. I want to just KNOW. I want to have it and read it. The suspense is KILLING ME!!!!
Where this series is concerned, patience is not only a virtue, it’s a necessity.
I’ve already figured that out, but it’s still not going to help.
Then we must teach you to wait. 😉
Paul is slow, but he puts out a piece of the story arc in five comics every week, as regularly as clockwork. I admire his consistency and high quality artwork, not to forget his creative ideas. He is a great example of a satisfying comic artist. To get all that, I am gladly patient! (Just keep the comic coming 😉
Its one of the things I love about this site(the others being the killer stories and Paul’s ability to draw healthy midwest girls). I read about 15 web different web comics, only 5 of them(3 of those are by Blind Ferret) can keep to thier sceduals not only consistantly, but for years.
I understand holding a story together for a year is hard, let alone for 5+ years and not only holding it together but building new stories and keeping them interesting, this is amazing! It makes me sick when I see Web comics that can’t hold to a one day a week scedual, how can they hope to compare with those that update 5 days a week.
To that I say thank you Paul, and keep it up, as long as your hear I’ll keep reading and enjoying.
And the next time you are at a comic-con try this out on the web comic group. You’ll ether show someone how unprofessional they are or if you run into Paul here, you might owe them a lot of money.
Crap, my HTTP link screwed up!!
Jolly Jack I am looking at YOU!!!! Darn it… Its really good too, but updated like once a month… cry Hopefully its for something good!
And yes Paul many thanks for being there when you say you will be!
I’m pretty sure that the character of Rayne Summers was created so that the writer could be as big an asshole as he’s always wanted to be and get away with it… sort of the same way a ventriloquist’s dummy can get away with incredibly dirty & rude things.
I’d also be curious if they could live up to that same “never missed an update over a 6 month stretch” critique, amongst their several strips.
don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Least I Could Do AND Looking For Group…
I agree; the most important thing is that Pablo puts out five strips a week, regular as clockwork. A lot of webcomic artists fail to do that! He’s also got a story and he’s working though it in his own time. Fair enough.
Aw, man. All this talking about long story arcs reminded me I need to catch up on Gunnerkrigg Court…
My new Fave too! Three times a week is torture though… I really should take break from all of these (except Wapsi and QC) just so I could come back and have something to read.
I guess next up is Jin arriving in a barely there bikini…
Please? Can we begs even???
*rolls eyes, slumps on ground, grabs oxygen-mask and waits for the inevitable*
No, no, Shelly, the sweatband goes around your head!
Actually, it goes wherever she wants it!
Is it just me or did Shelly get a boob job sense the last time we saw her in that top? It just like that top is holding on a little harder this time.
No, everything just fits tighter in the spring. It’s the last 8 ounces of Christmas plus fabric shrinkage.
If thats true, I’ve got a lot of friends that are going to be looking forward to winter this next year.
Well she has Superstrength and is a female (obvisiously) so like most female (super)heroes she might have the most common Superpower.
What, boobs don’t get sweaty, too? 😉
They do, but I don’t like to think about it. To really help, she should be wearing one underneath them as well.
Looks like someone is going to have to find a new island or rebuild the old one or there will be many unhappy non-campers at Wapsi Square.
Then again, their new adventure might take them somewhere even better.
They can always go to Bikini Atoll.
Given the history of the place who knows what Stinky and Bud might find!
I think Monica can rebuild her isle(tte) of paradise w/o much an effort. All she had to do it to *poit* a bunch of sand to the remains of the sandbar. Remember she pointed all of that snow to cover that pleasure boat. She can be quick skillful in *poit*ing when she set her mind to it.
Another precinct heard from…
“Sorry ’bout that. Not sure. I don’t know, and I haven’t got a clue.
“And who’s on first?”
OH WOW. All I see in this strip is,
“Okay, day at the beach isn’t happeni… Property of Minnesota XXS Athletic Dept. blah blah blah.”
Shelly T&A, “Blah blah!”
The Return of the She-Hulk Shirt!
That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking.
I think this should be Maya’s territory. It could be Jin’s, but she’s out of it.
I’m sure there must be a plethora of OTHER sunny lost uninhabited islands in the bermuda triangle that they can poit to, but how did they find that one in the first place? …
However, those are mainly (if not entirely) barrier islands, which, by their basic nature, are close to the continents.
Hardly the sort of secluded isolated beach where five cute girls in skimpy swimsuits could be sure of not being spotted, causingspeculation as to how they got there.
That’s true. My main point was that there are lots of islands out there with more being discovered all the time. Who’s to say how many more there are to yet be found. Especially those far from shipping and flight lanes.
…the problem being that the area around Bermuda is thick with shipping lines. There was a reason that it was a pirate haven for so long.
Yes, but there are reasons for so many shipwrecks, too. There are places where the ships will go and places where they won’t.
Actually, barrier islands are ideal sunbathing spots. They’re “close” to continents only in relative terms, usually at least a couple of miles off-shore. Unless there are high-rises or cliffs along the continental shore, a three-mile separation will put the sunbathers on their barrier island over the horizon from the continent–and if there’s even a ten-foot elevation and the sunbathers stay on the seaward side, they’re invisible even at shorter ranges.
Even if the islands were barrier islands, if they weren’t already listed, they coastal area probably isn’t that well developed. But you might have locals fishing in the area.
I imagine once word gets out, it’d be a VERY popular fishing spot…
Okay, everyone divide up into two teams. Team one will discuss the significance of the artifact and it’s relation to Celtic graveyards, and team two will scout for a new island….. -POIT-
Uh, guys? Two teams?….. Guys?……….
I’d definitely be going with team 2 on that one. Probably a much better view.
But team 2 may take several dunks in the ocean before finding that for which they’re searching.
With the skimpy stuff they are wearing, all the better to go with team to. No way that stuff is going to last more then one or 2 dunks in the ocean. 🙂
Nah – you just poit in at two thousand feet or so, fully extend to stabilise and control your fall, check to see if there are any likely-looking islands, and then poit to the island or else back to Minneapolis.
Rinse and repeat as necessary.
Why must you destroy my dreams……. /cry
Hmm..now that could actually work.. lemme guess, former marine-scout and/or spotter?
Also – there is no Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are really just your parents.
LOL!!! Your not a nice person.
Looks like team 1 is you and Phix, NOTDilbert…
…but I’ll tag along if you want. I hate crowds.
Yay! for Shelly in a swimsuit! 😀
Shouldn’t that be XXL?
Nope. XXL would come to somewhere around her knees.
On the back, anyway.
I must say that i’m quite impressed with the elasticity of the material in Panel Two…
Aaaand..Shelly’s disappointed too, but ,completely in character ,not purely disappointed ,but very annoyed to boot.
Bummer, being all packed for a nice day at the beach. A bit like being told, just before the bus leaves, that the school-outing has been canceled.
Some people are going to be a bit miffed at Bud’s actions….
Annoyed now, down right pissed when she finds out that the beach has been blown to a crater.
And covered in german ersatz-diesel to boot.. 😆
I’m postulating that all the diesel was burned up in the explosion except the bit that *poited* away with Bud.
First Tina … now Shelly.
Two hearts broken. They really wanted to go sunning on the out of the way beach.
Monica looks soooo cute in that pose and with her hair puffy like that :3
I really like your Gravatar. Both computer geeky and old school at the same time.
Unrelated, and I didn’t see it in the previous comments…
I read this http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110425 before today’s Wapsi (so I read my comics alphabetically, so what?) and it appears we have a crossover! Please note panels 4 and 5… 😯
I am a GG reader too … I saw it and saw the poke in the back of the head description – and it reminded me of WS.
I read my web comics in reverse alphabetical order.
That’s the SECOND Sexiest you’ve drawn Shelly.
The archery catsuit still reigns supreme.
That one was a winner because it was funny as heck too!
Hmm..I’d say the leopard-halloween costume she once tried was my sexy ‘n cute preference. Though, simple, rolled-up jeans, sneakers and red Tee are hella sexy too.
‘C mon, nothing beats a tight ,round little Aa.a.a..bbuu.bbu.uu.buuuu beltbuckle..yeah ,that was what I was gonna say.. “beltbuckle” *nodnod*
I love the leopard outfit, but the is my vote for sexiest Shelly ever, is .
Tiny dot worked though…. It’s more cute’n cuddly than pure sexy to me…
I think it’s those sorts of moments when women are at their sexiest. Those quiet moments when they’re just being themselves.
The mini-nun outfit.
Okay, but that one’s sexy for all the wrong reasons…
I can just se it now. *poit* *poit**poit* *splash* *splash* *splash*! What was an island is now a sandy, rock bottomed wading pool if that, or at least an atoll. Think of the atolls that were created during the nuke test several decades ago and you’ll get the idea.
I don’t know if the bottom would be very rocky. I was very surprised while looking at Google Maps to see how much sand at accumulated near some of the cays in the Bahamas.
No Tina, but still nice! ^^
