    Does this mean Roy can finally make use of the Tavern of Infinite One-Night Stands? Hey, if his mother's not discreet around him, there's no reason for him to be discreet around her.

    Hey! Roy can bring home all the one night stands he wants. What's his mother going to do? Tell him he's sex obsessed?

    Glad to see Mom is having fun in heaven as well, guess she is still on the first circle flesh binge. Then again she has only been dead 3ish years and the archon said 30+

    Although in a way I'm glad to see this happening: two people who were thoroughly sick of each other when they were alive shouldn't be making each miserable in heaven. Nice view of people moving on instead of being eternally stuck to the past because that is what's considered socially appropriate.

    Sweet Lord, that is frickin' awkward.

    Insightful too, an analysis of Eugene's character.

    Great comic, Giant! You seem to be going out of your way to torture Roy right now, despite him being in heaven.

    The comic, yes, it is the much funny!

    And before anyone starts saying Rich is insensitive to Hispanic people, I disagree with you. He's simply making humor out of mangled English.

    Great comic, very nice insight. I still find it funny that Roy is in his late twenties and his mom is 19.

    He can have all the one night stands he wants, but he'll feel guilty about it anyway. Remember what Roy's Archon said, most LG types expect to feel guilty about casual sex.

    I shall start a poll for making Enrique a permanent part of the strip.
    I wonder if Sara found him at the Bar of Infinite One-Night Stands, or whether he really is her partner in (after)life.

    Come to think of it, i wonder if the dates you pick at that Bar are actually other souls, or just astral constructs created for the sole purpose of making Celestia enjoyable for you.
    Considering the line of that girl that was shown when Roy's Archon first showed his namesake the attractions, i tend to think it's the latter.

    Marrige is non-exsistent in the upper planes, I guess. Or hes from the Tavern of infinite one night stands.

    Thie Enrique character might be interesting. Hes holding a nights helm, so he could be possibly a northern paladin.

    I'm not accustomed anymore to so frequent updates from OotS.


    Marriage in the Upper Planes? It would be madness. Marriage is "till death do [the couple] part", and that's the Afterlife we're talking about, there is no death anymore. (Barring, maybe, a lower-planar invasion force? Would be quickly repelled, though. Planes tend to be immutable.)

    Dammit, Giant! I LOVE it when you surprise us

    But as for Sara's partner, I actually thought THIS possibility would be a lot more interesting:

    I am disappointed that we didn't get to see the stick-figure codpiece. Bet that's hard to draw. :)

    Could be worse. See my avatar

    Anyway, remember that roy's girlfriend is a planar creature that can pretty much visit him here if she wants, and knows he's there.

    So much for the theory that Sara is pining away for Eugene.

    Or, if she is, she's found one heck of an outlet for her frustrations.

    Come on, give the poor guy some break, he's supposed to be in heaven! Why do I see Roy running out of mom's house, screaming?

    If Roy had a messed up psyche before.....

    Good to see his mom having the same philsophy as dad. Would have hated to see the mom staying faithful while the arrogant dad reinterpreted the rules in his favor.

    So... much... comic...
    Intensity... levels... approaching... Shatnerian... levels!

    Plus: Eugene gets a Pet The Dog moment. I guess he really is just a Jerk With A Heart Of Gold.

    Well apparently both parents seem to feel the same way about post-mortality affairs... I like the description of Eugene though. Puts more character into him than just your generic jackass
