(11/21/11) NEVER!

Well, at least she's forgotten all about the blowjob. Maybe she should keep more track of what she's saying when she's too apoplectic to think about what she's saying.

Am I the only one who thought "Hell yes!" as my instinctive reaction to this comic? Granted, Shanna is way out of line with slapping him, but Marc needed a serious wake-up call. She's expressed a desire to work things out with Will and turned down Marc's romantic advances in the past, yet he continues to act like they're on the verge of a relationship. I understand how hard it is to get over someone you have feelings for and that sometimes things can accidentally slip out when you're still sorting through those feelings, but if Marc really respected Shanna he would have backed off a long time ago.

Orange alert,eh? Patrick McGoohan's shade looks on.

Marc is way out of line. Shanna is married to his boss, is a member of the same force and (in experience at least, if not in actual rank) his superior. A slap is getting away lightly.

Yet, knowing Marc, he will spin this into a come-on - "She must really care to have had such a strong reaction".

Reading this strip, my first reaction was, 'Man, Shanna is just terrified of losing Will, isn't she?' Look at the tears in her eyes in panel 2! Plus, with the testimony of the time-travellers, the end must seem almost inevitable. Is she talking to Marc or herself in the third panel? Does she even know?

He needs it all right.
Not sure he got it, though. Marc's got some serious blind spots.
