    Was this comic really that difficult to follow? I thought it was a pretty decent setup, and much better than QC's normal sarcastic quip punchlines.

    Its just that it's open to interpretation. I'm interpreting it as her current action is affecting the group in the last panel. The others are interpreting it as an unseen past action by her is affecting group.

    For all we know, she could have read imgur/reddit and done this:

    She's back in her own apartment in the first half, so whatever she did happened before she left to go upstairs.

    Honestly, I am not one to put down QC. I actually read it more regularly than other strips. It really was hard for me to follow until someone explained it, I'm not just trying to take the mick out of Jeph Jacques

    Do any animals aside from humans actually kiss?

    Those dog things don't seem to have the proper shaped mouths for it.

    Yeah I wasn't trying to do that either, I just had literally no idea what was happening. I still don't get the joke unless there's a strip where this has happened before that I just missed and it's a running gag.

    I think the QC strip works fine if you read the one that came before it first and also understand Hannelore's character a bit.

    That's what I'm asking, does she often unleash giant screaming fits at people? I just don't remember that happening.

    This is why I didn't get it either, "the blonde girl holds it in and then has a terrifying fit of rage" is not a running gag I was aware of. On the other hand they seem to hammer in constantly the idea that she has massive OCD and like, every touching her or talking too loudly sets her off and I was trying to figure out why it was funny that she just had a breakdown or something

    QC: Jeeeeeez guys. It's not that hard. She is in an entirely different apartment in the bottom panels. She just left the other room. One guy is holding his ear in pain. What causes ear pain? Loud noises. Not farts.

    Kill Six Billion Demons: It updated to tell us that the author is behind on his update schedule again. Soooooo annoying. I think this comic is gonna die if he doesn't simplify his art style so he's not spending 20 hours a page.

    Farts can be the cause of loud noises.

    One time I smelled something so bad my eyes hurt, a fart might could maybe do that for ears

    What threw me off was that she was sitting on the left last panel but everyone's recoiling from noise to their right

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: if you stopped reading at panel two you missed an upside to death in panel six, which may NOT be what you intended!!
    I rewrote this comic because it originally said "talking to party strangers on the regular" and I gotta admit, the phrase "party strangers" is SUPER-DUPER enticing
    if you ARE the last of your friends to die, then at least you get the treasure you all agreed would go to the survivor. so: no downsides!

    It almost looks like she sprinted out of there in a hurry until I saw that his eye was closed, then it looks like trauma.

    I find that the "blessed silence" title at the top of the comment helped my understanding of it.

    Then again, here in Sweden we have a saying: "Taste is like a butt - split." Sometimes people aren't going to like the same things that you like, or even find them funny at all.

    (Also I'm pretty sure that the exit to Marten and Faye's apartment is to the right of the first comic, meaning that she presumably went on her storming UP THE SHUT FUCK rampage whilst leaving the room.)
