The first page I've done on the new computer, so forgive me if this is at all wonky or anything. ^^;

Todd returns in his neverending quest to ask girls he barely knows (if at all) to prom, get turned down everytime, and then insult the girl for not being interested in him. Again, thanks to the hiatus, I know it's been a while. So I don't expect everyone to remember this, but he's also asked Ana, Rain, and Holly, and been alluded to ask countless other girls offscreen. He's probably whiffed a few dozen times by now, but neither his determination nor his method have faltered.

I've asked a few times now, and I'll ask again: Why? What does Todd want? Does he really want to go to prom that badly? Is he trying to prove something? Where is this all going? Do you think there's a girl in this school who would accept his invitation? And while we're on it, who's left to ask?

Ohdeboi… Todd is up to his old (and tired) tricks again. Maybe it's just me, but everytime I see him in the comic, his behavior reminds me of the Abusive Person Checklist. I'll need to find it again to be sure, but point one of The Checklist is, 1.) Unable to find fault within oneself. I feel very sorry for whomever can stand him long enough to date him. He's the kind of "guy" who gives men a bad name. (As if we don't enough of that ourselves…!)

Todd

While I certainly do not condone anything that Todd Bittner has done to the other characters over the course of the comic, I think I get his mindset. All this incorrect behavior strongly points to his folks not raising him right. I could be completely wrong, of course, but my best hypothesis is that his father raised him to be this way through bullying or psychological abuse while the mother was either not present in his life, extremely neglectful to the point of indifference, or also abusive but only verbally (think of a darker take on Breakfast Club's John Bender's family life). It probably won't be explored at any point but it's just a theory.

As I said earlier, this theory certainly does not excuse Todd's despicable words and actions, but it would make his hateful personality a lot more understandable.

@Kei-chan: Or possibly no. Lynn has never been shy about the darker side of human behavior. We've seen abusive parants already; why not one more...

Though, I desperately wish that the density of bad parents in this area were beyond one's suspension of disbelief.

Even if many girls in a school you go are spoiled teenagers, you can't call them that in their faces, nor say "stuck up bimbos"! Also, pregnant teenagers aren't "easy". Just because someone is sexually active doesn't mean you can have your "chance". Todd is really an asshole and deserves to be alone in his own prom night until he realizes he is an asshole. If he doesn't change he can end up like Chase: an alcoholic sex offender.

@The Aussie Bloke: It's too bad this comic isn't the type that can show her whacking him with a gigantic cartoon hammer and flattening him into a pancake! (Although, it could show her THINKING that, probably with little chibi versions of the characters.)
