Lol! I was actually suspecting he'd be the most likely to be retconned out of existance :lol: I suppose he's great for one shot gags, though I tend to find characters based on "random idocy" (Cheese from Foster's, Homsar from Homestarrunner.com) very easy to "overuse" and get old fast, since it's ea...

Well, it's not that different than this. I'm sure the folks at portal of evil and something awful would make jokes but screw them. What's the translation? [ticked off tail-twitch] Frankly, I find the supposed correlation offensive! Would you see it differently if RH had drawn a few more lines and f...

I mean atleast tell us WHY he's making the change.
I'm assuming he wants to do that through the comic. He's addressed minor points, but apparently doesn't want to just dump everything at once.

I suspect it's a number of issues, theology being one of them. Regardless, it's apparent that the comic had gotten to the point where the author was not comfortable continuing it, and rather than simply ending it he chose to revamp it. It's not that some of the criticism is totally without a point, ...

Not sure. People change their minds over time, go through different stages of life. Maybe he thought it was ok then, but has grown concerned with it over time. Ann Rice changed her perspective from when she wrote vampire novels to novels about Christ, Tony Stewart switched from Indycar to Nascar ful...

Lastly, it's not living your religion that makes you bigotted. Bigotry only comes through persecution and rejection of other life, cultures and beliefs. So long as you're not doing that, you're fine. So how does this square with your assertion that overhauling the comic verges on intolerance and bi...

So we are actually getting an "Earth 2" history lesson. This arc seems to allow the previous arcs that involved other tulpas to involve other goblins, except now we have an entire race of creatures rather than people's minds "budding like an onion." BTW The author seemed interested in the fact that ...

Huh, that's actually a bit of an insite I didn't really see the fact that "tulpa" came from Buddhist ideas that much of a problem, although I'm somewhat strong on "all truth is God's truth," meaning it could represent something that's been described in eastern mysticism while not assenting that ever...

Technically, the arc was (retcon withstanding) canon in that Ben really had the dream. Piff, like every other tulpa, was a manifestation of Ben's mind, so when Ben woke up there he was.

Why am I acting as a Ralph apologist? I'm not sure...

I too am interested in how the new reality relates to the previous timeline. Of course, since it's all a comic strip anyway, we could just consider UTLT "Earth 1" and GH "Earth 2" and accept that each storyline doesn't have to have happened in an exact parallel. Ben could have still had an ex, met W...

First thoughts: Piff's in an artist's smock! :D Say it now! Smock Smock Smock!! (Seriously, it's what I thought). Secondly, Sheldon is no longer a turtle and morty is no longer a bird, which of course makes sense since everyone is now a goblin. Thirdly, did Penny know about the posse before this, is...

Penny's still in the goth stage, which I strangely like better than the "Brittney Spears wannabee" stage.

It does beg the question as to "how far back" this retcon goes (remember when we though Ben's proposal to Lilly was just a dream :wink: ). I have a wierd thought, maybe I shouldn't speculate publically, but here goes... What if as the posse changed from aspects of Ben's subconscious to more independ...

By Ben's surprised reaction, it seems he does notice the changes.

Have Ben's memories not changed from the retcon?? Interesting.

Still not totally convinced this isn't a big joke on the fans.

I voted "Comedic Fool" though I have a kind of Darkwing Duck perspective on Q.
