I wish I could posted all of the mindscape scenes, they were wonderful.
The merging/friendship between Doug and Warlock is one of the coolest things about the comic. There were so many bits I wish I could have posted!
Doug and Brian are cute pals! One of the reasons I would have hoped for an eventually Doug/Betsy relationship was this. After he get over the age difference I think he would assumed an "older-classmate/friend" dynamic with Doug. Also, Meggan would thought Doug was adorable and been such a fangirl for Doug/Betsy.
""In a psychic environment, strength is a function of will and determination" is just an awesome line and so worthy of Doug and Warlock!"
Agreed! It was their "There is no spoon" moment!
Betsy/Doug can be wrong. But I liked them for the future outcome. If Doug had lived I think they would have ended up together somewhere down the road. Did you ever see the movie Sandlot? They actually reminded my of this. Ok, a bunch of nerds/outcasts/dorks form a rag-tag sandlot baseball team. One of these boys (who are between 10-12) is a scrawny, bookish-nerdy type. In one scene they go down to the public pool on a hot summer day. The reason is the ultra-foxy 16-17 year old life-guard that the nerd is crushing on hardcore. The others mock him for this crush and he makes a decision to do something about it. He jumps off the diving-board and pretends to be drowning. She dives in and pulls him out and starts CPR. He, of course uses this opportunity to steal a kiss. Everyone cheers him and the girl is furious and tosses them all out. They run off but the nerd looks back and the they see each other and she gives him a smirk. In the epilogue of the film where they tell what happened to the sandloters as adults, this nerd eventually married the lifeguard and had six kids together. Doug/Betsy should have been a "down-the-road" OTP.
