Dang, was it that difficult to just pay for your weed? D:
This entire time they've been not paying for it. My bet is they still expect to not have to pay for it.
This is how Will deals.
Will pulls no verbal punches, does he?
Will pulls no punches of ANY kind.
Will then puts on his cape and cowl and batarangs the whole room.
I'm feeling the batman vibe too.
He's going to snark them to death!! 😮 😮 😮
ohhhhh, must by a favour for Aimee for her LARPing friends… I hope…
This made me grit my teeth to the point where it hurt.
New tactic, beat them emotionally with a speech about how much their lives sucks and make them miserable. That could actually work.
C'mon, Will, activate X-factor.
Will's got a point- I mean, how dumb do you have to be to order some drugs and then beat up the dealer while refusing to pay? At this point, they'll be lucky if things go down like the second scene in Pulp Fiction- at least Vincent and Jules killed everyone relatively quickly and painlessly.
My memory is a bit fuzzy on that. Is Will a direct dealer, or is he a delivery guy for a dealer? In which case Will's dealer is in a position to cause some serious casualties. My theory is that Will is going to point that out and extort the hell out of them.
Yeah, and it's not even like they're operating under the illusion that Will is a lone dealer they can handle with numbers. They put in an order with his delivery network, so they're aware he's got a network. Not only is his boss not going to take the monetary loss lying down, all his other runners are not going to put up with 'customers' thinking they can beat and rob delivery workers.
The douche was right a few pages back: it's not like they can involve the cops. But he was wrong about that working in his favor, since they'll just be seeking other avenues for justice.
I am curious about Will's boss. I don't think he's been introduced.
Hmm, it might be a little too much meta thinking, but I believe that the "aggressive package man" deal could be to let less-than-intelligent customers back down and not get their lives wrecked by the bigger dealer. And there is always a bigger dealer.
Starting a fight might not be smart, but letting every jerk with an attitude just get away with free stuff might make your boss a little ticked. Responding with showing how much ass you're able to kick on your own might be a good middle ground.
These people didn't seem to get the hint though, so I guess the thunder is going to come down from on high soon.
This is.. badass… Never compromise, not even n the face of certain doom.
Well, he's not the one beating them while they're immobilized by a guy double their size!
The fools! They've played right into his hands! Will is in a perfect position to throw another one of these jerks by their ankle!
Clearly he's using the Liam Garak technique of hand to hand combat. Namely getting several cutting remarks that which no doubt did serious damage to their egos!

And then Will activates his stand and this comic gets NUTS
Either Will is going to go all Oh Dae-su on these guys, or he's leaving without his money. Blech. Nothing like being backed up by a roomful of chumps to make you feel like you've got one up on a guy who you know would kick your ass clear across the state line if you were alone.
That said, real world math pretty much calculates these dudes all running into serious shit once Will tells his boss what happened. Not sure Octopus Pie is the kind of comic that wants to get into the unfolding repercussions of tangling with drug dealers, but yeah, they're probably fucked.
Do we know for a fact Will has a boss? Or is he an independent contractor?
Will has mentioned before he has a boss — during the time Marigold wanted to shadow him around, she became disillusioned when he said after 6pm was when his boss wasn't allowed to call him anymore.
Darn tootin'. Here's Will, just trying to conduct Business As Usual, and this gaggle of immature boys decide to play at thuggery.
If you look carefully, every one of Will's punches was thrown in self-defense.
Will, I am speaking from experience. Moral Values, awesome though they are, will NOT pay hospital bills.
oh boy, is this going to be the arch where we meet Will's Boss? :O
Will is burnt out. He knew what it was like to be in their shoes, ignorant of everything and partying as if tomorrow did not matter. Will grew up and sees how it is.
Can’t party forever, mang!
I kind of wanted to see Will beat down a few more dudes. The fight scenes were actually super entertaining to me. He even did a big-swing on the previous page, and hurled that dude into a wall!
omg 668 pages of HELL YEAH and then the pages just stopped fuck i was so hoping this was a finished webcomic
i’m super glad that i’ll be able to read this in the future but… le sigh i so want fucking more.
