So, this might be a little abstract, and I apologize for it. For those who didn't get it because it was unclear, Vic, on this page, is a memory. He isn't actually there. And as Annie comes to work through this whole thing, his memory of the perfect gentleman begins to be washed away.

Also, no, I did not bork up Annie's hair. She has gone for a few weeks without dying it, and her natural hair colour is brown. If you recall from before when Tony shaved his head, hair grows at 0.5 inches a month. So two weeks without dying or touching it up would be 0.25 inches. Not a huge amount, but when you hair is bright red, it gets pretty noticable.

Edit: OH GOOGLE. When I posted I accidently put 2014 instead of 2015, so if I accidently spoilered any RSS feeds, my bad!

We've seen in numerous strips that Vic isn't a perfect gentleman - he's just as flawed as the majority of the human population.

However, he thought that Annie needed him to play that role, and until that fateful night, generally succeeded (with the possible exception of the Valerie kiss). Even on that fateful night, until "the reveal", he maintained the role - and indeed been a rock she could cling to during some of the turbulent storms of those few weeks (notably her biological mum and the therapist).

Unfortunately, he then had the human equivalant of a BSOD as he struggled to reconcile the Annie he'd formed a mental image of and the dangling lump of flesh on her body facing him.

Actually, the therapist episode brings forth another similarity between the pair - particularly with The Hike after the therapist turned on him. Neither are very good at confronting the realities of their respective situations and figuring out the best way to proceed.

@mittfh: At least now Annie's memory dump is starting, and she can reboot. And maybe even load up the updates that she is worth more than she could have fathomed before.

Vic didn't do wrong. He just didn't do right. It is a shame, but, humans are human. He tried. Sometimes we try and fail, despite our sincerest efforts.
Hopefully she won't completely remove him from her mind. Some pictures should remain on your phone, no matter how many upgrades you go through.

Actually?

I think all your 2015 ones are 2014. I'd noticed, but then forgot.

@Siva: I posted them all in 2014, but they should not have been available to look at until the release date. Unless Smackjeeves is releasing them the day I post them, in which case, the RSS feed has all my comics till midway through 2016, and that is *really* not ok.

@GreenKrog: Wow, you have got one hell of a buffer. You're never gonna run out of comics, are you?

@Anon: Unless I can manage to get a handle on my current bipolar swing, what is posted (mid-apr) is going to be the last of it. We will see. I hate being so far behind, especially knowing what is coming in my life.

@GreenKrog: You still have nearly a year of buffer comics, so I wouldn't call this far behind. Your average webcomic writer is only a week or two ahead of schedule, and many don't even have a buffer.
Of course, that's not taking into account your cryptic comment about "what is coming in my life," which could mean that you won't be able to make more comics for a while, but I won't ask what that's about.
