The System 612: No Fat Pets
Future World Problems: The DodecaDown
UPDATE: Here’s today’s comic on Reddit. Consider giving it a vote here or on whatever site you like to share things on.
This week will be full of comics by my fellow webcomic creators and the creme de la creme of visual entries to the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned the other day. If you like this charming entry, check out the original post with FutureWorldProblems here, or the first comic on the subject here.
As of this writing, I’m still looking for a few entries for the guest comic week! Put them together or email me (systemcomic at gmail) for questions.
Today’s comes from the incomparable Chris “The Impact” Impink who is the artist behind Sledgebunny, a fairly new webcomic about a girl trying to make it in a roller derby team. But he’s no newbie to the webcomic arena, Chris has been working on Fragile Gravity since before you knew what a webcomic was. As you can see with the comic above, the man is amazing. Sledgebunny is 43 pages in, that’s enough to get you hooked and want to bookmark it, and clearly you should. He’s on Twitter too. Also, ROLLER DERBY ZOMBIE FIGHT.
Check the blog soon for some details about the last two cons I attended (Intervention and Wild Pig con) and stay tuned for more FutureWorldProblems week!

I’d like to dedicate to the person I was talking to while I was writing this, but he might get the wrong idea about it. Did I mention I submitted today’s Hello With Cheese joke? Just sayin’.
And just to point out, this comic is not about being overweight (though the U.S. is getting fatter), it is about guys with a gut and their options. With the right pants, you can easily be fine. But for some reason, especially older men who wear suspenders with belts and hang out at every rest stop on I-95, they are instead hit with the gut dilemma. At some point they must have made a crucial decision, like Picard getting stabbed by a Naussican. They had to decide whether to:
- Getting new pants. But that would mean admitting defeat, or maybe pants cost too much. I’m not sure but not many people appear to have taken this option.
- Let the gut hang over the pants. Therefore allowing for seemingly smaller “waist size” in pants and keeping the pants under the gut at all times (allowing for easier slippage.)
- Bring the gut over the pants. Fred Mertz. The pants are slowly eating him I swear.
I once had a guy tell me that letting a gut hang over your pants can actually cause intestinal issues. I don’t want to look it up but I’ll believe it. I’m gonna go eat a salad.
Stay tuned, the “Venn F-cking diagrams” shirt is coming, along with an Otakon writeup.
