It’s time for the PokeRap!
Wolf Link, Songbird, Haunter, Duskull, Bunny Link, Prinny! Gotta’ catch ‘em all! Gotta’ catch ‘em all!
That Nicole joke never gets old XD
Haha, is Harvey lampshading the fact that some readers mistook Nicole for a dude in the past?
(Cannot edit comments, so here is a new one).
Tim has definitely raised “***-appeal” (saints row III) for Nicole. Compare her from her first appearance to today’s comic.
Yikes, a gender filter. “Gender appeal” I guess.
Yeah. I get a ton of emails from people who are shocked that Nicole is actually a girl. ;3
It’s not even that hard to figure out xD
Nicole and a certain purple cat should get together and discuss their common predicament XD
Ha awesome reference dude owo. But I mean come on I notice Nicole was feminine so it did hinted me that she was a girl. And also hint hint Tim do a crossover x3
Purple cat ?
I was thinking that, now I really want to see it.
Oh yes , a crossover : Nicole meets Grape (from House-pets) , and Kade meets the GamerCat
Wouldn’t a Bigglesworth be better? (From the same strip)
Panel 3 : Hey , Harvey ; Nicole isn’t really a male name ^^”
Panel 4 : I love how Harvey looks at Rick and Kade in a “decide yourself” style
Full strip : I think the night will be long ^_^
Harvey holding the “ghost” plushies is a really clever touch by the way!
Huh, I didn’t even notice.
I thought so too.
Lol at Harvey’s reaction xD.
I just bought my pup a carrot chew toy (I remember you saying your own dog that you based Nicole off has one).
Oh, yes. “Go get happy squeaky carrot” and she’ll run around the house until she finds it.
I thought Bolt when I saw it.
I did think Nicole when I bought it for him.
He’s a collie though not a red merle.
*immediately commences amazon search for wolf link plush*
I just realised that the crack on Harvey’s cheek looks like a smile sometimes. Must really like those plushies!
Ah, great, now I can never unsee that.
Dang it, now that’s all I see.
Makes some things a little funnier, though.
Aww, she’s got a Wolf Link plushie. <3
I don’t know a single pokemon in that rap. Great childhood i have :/
The one on the left is Haunter, the one on the right is Duskull – all the others aren’t Pokemon plushies.
Oh, would seem another plushy is a modified Dragonite from what I’ve read in the comments.
Harvey found some buddies
I’m assuming they’re holding onto the toys just in case those come to life as well?
Is there any reason that r.o.b is dangerous? It’s not like his ‘lazer’ shoots anything.
Do you really want to tempt the powers of something that’s moving on its own when it shouldn’t be? Especially considering ghosts are Definitely A Thing with Harvey around.
Ask me again next week. ;3
Harvey had the same reaction I did when I found out Nicole was a girl. Also I love Harvey playing with the ghost plushies. Also I have a lot of stuffed animals in my room and I’m a guy (but I am gay and hardly adhere to masculine/feminine roles).
girl or not those are some darn adorable plushies.
Harvey seems to be having more fun with the plushies than Kade and Rick XD
I want the Wolf Link plush! :3
i love the songbird plushie
YES, I wasn’t the only one to notice!
“You’re a GIRL??” LOL!
Surprising to see how many people didn’t know Nicole is a girl, I knew right when I started to read, love Harvey though.
Love the strip, nice to see Harvey holding the Ghost Pokemon.
I wasn’t sure at first, but later confirmed that she was in fact female.
It’s the modified dragonite from this comic: http://www.savestatecomic.com/2014/04/custom-plush/
If I remember correctly, I Think that she was referencing Songbird from Bioshock Infinite. Not sure…
Ah, the struggle with people knowing the gender or your characters. -_-
I loved my version of four swords. I got it used, so I had everything unlocked already. Good times.
Just rereading parts of the comic. Are they still in SaveState mansion?
Yea ; they’re all hidding them from Rob , in Nicole’s bedroom
She’s a Tomboy. I knew it~
Huh, I thought most people would know about her being a girl. Guess not. It’s a fairly common mistake, after all. Since some assume automatically that a girl have to behave like such.
Nicole has her winter coat in, is all. Pervs.
Don’t see him very often online.
Nicole has adorable stuffed animals :O..I want them all! Including Harvey..
The “Quiet, she’ll hear you.” got me laughing.
Kade : “- She just doesn’t act like one”
But who is acting as what ? : http://www.savestatecomic.com/2014/06/yard-sale/ ^^
Harvey (to Nicole) : “- You’re a GIRL?” ……………………….. Harvey suddenly interested by Nicole , for any reasons ?
God! I feel comfortable now that Harvey did the same mistake I did on past comics.
Is that a bunny Link from A Link To The Past? ****, I loved this game as a child, and I still love it.
I wanna Wolf Link plushie QuQ And hey, if they come alive, not like they can hurt much. They’re all soft!
Also, I think the phrase is usually “hole up”, not “hold up”, but that’s me.
My sister said the same thing. Then we couldn’t figure out if it’s “hole up” or “holed up.”
In this case you want “Hole up”.
“Holed up” would be past tense, and “Hold up” is a robbery.
p.s. I love your comic, even though I am not a gamer.
…and I’ve always known Nicole is a girl! (a cute one!)
I second this; Iron Ed is correct in saying that “hole up” is the appropriate idiom.
Also, I’m pretty sure that the “we’ll be fine” in the first panel should be proceeded by a comma.
Am I the only one that for sees an attack of the plushies coming very soon…
Also love Ricks reaction in the last panel acting lie Nicole is some kind of monster XD
It always makes me chuckle. While long,shaggy, fur hides much-she definitely has her “lady lumps” in there, somewhere….:)
Am I the only one who thinks it kinda looks like Nicole is wearing thigh high boots and opera gloves because of the color shift of the fur on her arms and legs? (I know Kade has similar ones, but they’re shorter and look more like bracers and boots/greaves to me.)
(And yeah, I think a lot of people mistake her for a guy, despite the name, because her body is pretty much shaped the same as Kade’s with the exception of a slightly more pronounced… “fur ruff”?… on her chest. So, basically it falls under the “If it’s not OBVIOUSLY a stereotypical female figure, the default is it’s a guy” way of thinking for many.)
It’s the same with her mask : more covering than Kade’s one
In an early design for Nicole only her fingers where white. Those really looked like opera gloves.
She’s so cute ………………………….. Does she exists as plushie ? ^^
No, not yet anyway.
How I imagine things are going to go down.
So, they’re still in the Savestate mansion, right. The one that they just drove to earlier that same day, just for a will reading?
Did Nicole pack all those plushies into her car for just a daytrip, that they were planning on driving back from anyway? (before they found out they’d gotten a free house)
She was surprised that Kade had brought Rob, the zapper, game consoles, etc. for the trip. And yet she brought all these???
They first showed up at the mansion last summer. This strip shows them deciding to live with Harvey http://www.savestatecomic.com/2014/11/muzzled/ and the next one is Kade trying to setup their internet. They’re mostly moved in now.
I want a Songbird plushie!!!!
I noticed that many were confused with Nicole’s gender, but I didn’t think it was hidden at all. Yes, she’s kind of a tomboy, but something about her said “female,” and oddly, not the slightly more pronounced chest.
It’s her face. I have to say she looks nice with glasses.
So a friend of mine refereed me to your comic here a couple weeks ago and it seems that i just can’t wait till you get your next comic out each week, but as of now Harvey is by far my favorite character.
So i just want to make a funny statement. You said its a good thing that Harvey is a ghost, so he is immune to the cold in this strip of comic http://www.savestatecomic.com/2015/02/its-called-snow/
But, why is he wearing a scarf in this comic?
Love the comic, found the link on fa a while back,
Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow
I remember the pokemon rap….imagine them trying to do it today.
Yeah, let’s see how long stays current.
OMG, Link Wolf and the bird from Bioshock infinite right?
Oh, yeah! ;3
Shes a girl!? I just figured her brother was calling him “her” in order to be mean. Mind blown.
