869 The New Bohemians

Way back at the beginning of the fifth chapter, I had a storyline in mind with Dave and skateboarding but it got interrupted with the Stephanie and Rich storylines then the road trip. Now I can move ahead on it. (But the skateboarding aspect of it really isn't the main focus of the story...) Also some new supporting characters. (kinda)

  1. Yep, I still remember how my ex-gfยดs son called me old when I was like 25-26 ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Proving yet again that age is relative. I recall coming to that realization fairly early in life (somewhere around 19, I think) and it has saved me from putting my foot in my mouth many times. Granted, I used to be really good at guessing ages when I was in my 20s, but that particular ability fell off the bell curve more than a decade ago and landed about as hard as Dave just did. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks like Dave and Sean are being challenged by the next generation! I don’t know who is who, but with Katie, Sammi and Tanya having tags I’m guessing they’ll be around long enough get to know a little before the arc is over. The tall one on the left is cute, reminds me a little of Beth, which also reminds me that she has a younger sister? If I get a chance I’ll have to go archive diving, but it’s been so long I could be misremembering.

      Good eye! You should see Katie’s first appearance link if you hover over her cast box. (one day I’ll be able to put pictures in the boxes…if I ever am able to figure it out.).

      1. Oh good grief. *facepalm* You know, one of these days I’m actually going to have the presence of mind to click on the character tags if I want to see previous appearances instead of thinking everything is an archive dive. I guess I’m still stuck in the land before time, back when Dewey and the Decimals ruled the Earth. ๐Ÿ™‚

          No worries. Easy to miss when there’s no pictures.

        2. That was a band to beat the band, as it were.

  3. Isn’t Dave supposed to be in his mid-twenties? I’m still not too sure as to what the time period this strip is set in, but I’m pretty sure you said near the beginning that he was 26 and a year seems to have passed since the first strip, meaning he’d be 27. I was told I was a kid until I reached 30.

    We’ve met Katie before, but are the other two girls inspired by the show “Ed, Edd, and Eddie?” There’s something REALLY familiar about their designs… specifically the blue haired girl…

    1. And when it come to it, you can be called old even when being 18 ๐Ÿ˜€

    2. Bohemiannightsthecomic

      At this point in the comic, Dave is 24. (still about 7 years older than the girls shown) He started the strip at 22 with each chapter running (roughly) three months time. At least in the beginning so…
      Chapter 1: Summer
      Chapter 2: Autumn
      Chapter 3: Winter (new years eve)
      Chapter 4: Spring (Mark’s death)
      Chapter 5: Early Summer (only two months)
      Chapter 6: Late Summer (road Trip)
      Chapter 7: Autumn (now)

      The ages of the main characters right now….
      Emrys:25
      Mateo:24 (almost 25)
      Shannon: 24
      Beth: 24
      Devon: 24(almost 25 -1 *comic* week away)
      Annabel: 23
      JoJo: 23
      Stephanie: 24
      Mrs. McKrakkin: Older than dirt.

      I never watched Ed, Edd, and Eddie so any resemblance is purely coincidence. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Heh, I like this already.

  5. Age and its relatives: an item floating around in the mists currently, with bits of observational documentation, sez that a male human brain is not fully-grown (let alone actually “mature”, for some values of “mature”, and I don’t mean Victor) until around age 25, and that a female human brain matures much earlier, like 18 to 19 years. I’d call the prime-cast fellas boys and the prime-cast females women right at this stage.

    1. … and following up to myself (a sometime Usenet sin) I place the new triad on the cusp of adulthood, incipient goddesses-in-training, as it were – I think I like them, a substantial bit, already.

  6. Aha! I see what Dave needs to say! Something like โ€œWhy so cranky? Did you forget your nap? Or did Justin Bieber cancel again?โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚
