Lucky you, Jasper… lucky indeed. This wraps up this Marian/Jasper stuff for the most part.
That explains it all.
Wait… did I just miss something? I thought Spellsworth was Marian’s last name, so did Jasper take her last name instead? O_o thus making Nergil thing that Marian cheated on him… I thought that because her last name was Spellsworth, thus it making it Jasper’s last name, that he came to the conclusion that she was a whore.
I just confused the living shit out of myself.
im with you. I actually went back to see the gravestones to make sure I wasnt going crazy. and he even says “I thought spellsworth was someone elses name”
So now I’m confused too…
Never said Spellsworth was Jasper’s last name. Just said he thought it was someone else’s last name. When looking over to see Jasper’s name on the tombstone, he immediately came to the conclusion that the woman he loved married his best friend. Without this current insight they could’ve been two completely different people that he didn’t know whatsoever.
Also, Marian’s sister probably has the same last name as her, which Nergil could have forgotten about completely during his years of rage and cursed-ness. It has been a LONG time (apparently).
It clearly says “Jasper Spellsworth” on the tombstone, not just “Jasper”.
It wouldn’t say just “Jasper” anyway. In cemeteries, they tend to put the first and last name of both the husband and wife on their respective markers, unless they’re sharing a burial marker between two plots (in which case it says something like, “John and Jane SMITH”).
Since the man taking the woman’s last name isn’t as common, and since it’s possible the two Marians could have had different last names (one of the parents remarried, or one of them could have been married before, or any number of possibilities), and since Nergil has been a cursed shadow thing for quite some time now . . . maybe he forgot that Spellsworth was the sister’s last name and not Jasper’s.
And if both sisters had the birth name “Marian”, it would stand to reason that the sister might very well have gone by “Vivian” as a nickname to avoid just this sort of confusion in casual social circles. But when you die, the standard is to put your legal name on the tombstone. And Nergil’s Marian would have introduced “Vivian” by her real name (Marian) to Jasper, as she seems to have been trying to get the two to become a married item.
I would complain about how difficult this was to explain, but soap operas are even harder . . .
You didn’t miss anything. The continuity errors are getting worse and worse, and this story line is getting more and more convoluted in an unsuccessful attempt to smooth over the inconsistencies. The story should have ended when he visited the grave. All the fillers since then have only weakened the plot.
But, but… we love them so much because they have such moxie and they are so dadgum dapper!
So will Nergil ever find out? Maybe meet his beloved Marian again? (if so poor poor zoey..)
Why would he make the mistake of accidentally visiting Marian’s sister’s grave? Nergil can’t be that dense…can he? O.o
Maybe his love’s sister, Marian, went by “Vivian” as a nickname, and he just never knew her well enough to have learned her name was really also “Marian”. So maybe he asked somebody where to find “Marian’s grave” and they went by what was on the tombstone.
Zoey is Marian’s granddaughter!
“WHY, HOW DARE YOU–” “I LOVE dull men.” “–Issue me such a fine compliment.” I almost spit out my drink. Can I marry you and have your babies?
Unicorn babies. Gallons of them.
Also, I just noticed another continuity error – Marian’s sister Marian was named “Vivian” in at least one of the older filler strips. (I stumbled across it while I was flipping through and trying to find the context of Zoey’s fantasy about having gallons of Chase’s pretty unicorn babies.)
This is her OTHER sister.
Yes, Marian’s father IS a heavy drinker, there is no telling how many siblings she has. I’m going to say that Vivian is younger than both Marian and Marian #2
Maybe Sister-Marian and Vivian are identical twins, who would both be Nergil’s-Marian’s sisters.
I can’t decide if that would clear things up or make the confusion worse . . . I think I need more coffee . . .
Man, I see the hereditary craziness coming…
For the reprint book: Two G’s in “aggression.”
Nice save, Jasper. Nice save.
Oh Noes! I caught up… now what am I going to choke on my food to?
Dammit! Why didn’t you start this comic series earlier? That way I could be flipping through hundreds more of hilarious pixels! Btw, I’m sure that someone has already pointed this out, but chase began to look kinda started to look like ichigo from bleach a little while back. On the off chance that you haven’t heard of any of this, Google him quickly
Soooo is there a new date on the comic to be shipped? I haven’t heard anything in a while. Not complaining or anything. Last I heard, Scott was going through some things, he can take all the time he needs, I’m just generally curious.
Just started this comic 2 days ago.. and now I’m all caught up!
This doesn’t wrap up the Marian/Jasper stuff! It’s all still convoluted! We need a resolution that makes sense. Do the Marians have a sister named Vivian? Which Marian got married to Jasper? Why did Jasper take his wife’s last name? Did Nergil visit the wrong grave? Why did he think Marian’s last name wasn’t Spellworth?
Seriously. We need answers.
The second Marian is the one who ended up with Jasper. Jasper’s last name is Spellsworth. In the strip Scandal, we find out that Jasper married a Marian, and she took his last name. Nergil did visit the wrong grave. He visited the wrong sister. And Marian’s last name ISN’T Spellsworth.
In the first panel of this comic Jasper introduces himself as Jasper Hornswiggle. So… I’m confused.
Jasper’s lastname is Hornswaggle. Not Spellsworth. That’s the Marian’s last name.
That’s probably why Nergil was confused. He probably met her other sister and remembered her last name and happened to see Jasper’s grave with the same name.
Scott, its me again, so I sent you several emails to your personal email like you’d said, but still nothing. Any chance you can get back to me soon? I ordered the kills things with bear hands shirt back in October and I’ve received no word since then.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as all of my attempts to contact you have been for naught.
