It took forever to assemble all the supercomputer performance terminology for this strip, and it’s probably all laughably outdated now. At least “petaflop” remains a funny word.
Dave is wearing sneakers with his suit. That’s…just sad, Dave.
There aren’t many times in Narbonic you see Dave with a big goony smile on his face, but this is one of them. It is a pretty cool computer.
I like it when Helen wears a lab coat over a cocktail dress. It’s so classy.
I don’t have much to say here except that the heart came from a font because I’m really bad at drawing hearts. Also, whenever I needed to make Dave look totally freaked out, I had to draw him in profile because it’s the only way you can see his damn eyes.
Dave looks very cute in this strip, though. At least he met Lovelace with his hair looking nice.
I spent a ridiculous amount of time thinking up ways Dave could disembowel himself using items found in a hotel room. I should have gone with “complementary copy of USA Today.”
This whole scene in Madblood’s hotel room probably goes on longer than it should, but what the hell. At least I got in a lot of drawings of Dave looking cute.
Madblood’s thing for Jennifer Connelly never stops being funny, I don’t care what you say. Anyway, I’ve now successfully gotten Dave out of the hotel room so the ladies can talk. Man, was that hard.
