Damn, I was hoping Justin was a potential love match. Oh well. Maybe they will end up together after hating each other for awhile.

And hired at a toy store no less. The scary part is I met someone just like him yesterday... same hair, goatee, same charming personality.
I am merely a figment of your imagination.

Man, I'm just dying to find out why someone with such a sparkling personality would want to work at a toy store, with kids. Unless he plans on pulling the same gambit as Brad. Man alive though, between Silent Sam and Linda, Kes' gonna miss unemployment...

K appears either insanely happy or happily insane in today's comic, so I think both of them are equally weird :)

While I'm sure there are exceptions, most people don't really *choose* to work retail, be it in a toy store or other.

Besides, maybe he's fine with kids, just hates women for whatever heartwrenching reason that will be slowly and painfull exposed in a long, tearful flashback, after several misunderstandings and a few misadventures which help all of them to not only grow closer together, but to individually grow, as people.

Or maybe he's just a jerk.

He reminds me of goth Felix, somewhat.

Justin looks like he could be amusing. Not for Kestrel of course, but for us definitely. I bet Aeire's going to have lots of fun with him.

You know what I wonder? When is Aeire going to bring in the character who's in the likeness of the winner of the eBay auction? As I recall (perhaps erroneously), the auction-character was supposed to make his or her first appearance in October. Could Justin be him? I wondered if the eBay character was Linda, but she somehow looks less realistically drawn than the others, and I don't think Aeire would do that to the winner. Justin looks detailed enough that he could be the eBay character. Any thoughts?

I'll side with this one. Soap-opera-like tearful flashbacks seem to be the rule around here. Although i'd be hoping for more than the usual "my girlfriend dumped me" motivation for his behavior. It's so hard to find a good well-developed recluse/anti-social character in webcomics these days...
And in any case, if that store hired one employee who's short-tempered around children (Angela), and another one who is probably telling the customers how to raise them (Linda) why not one who's just sullen around them? Seems reasonable enough.

Or he could be hungover from the night before.

I thought the Doctor was the character from the ebay auction?

Was he? What makes you think so? Clue me in, please!

I definitely want to see how Justin reacts to kids, yes yes.

If you want to work with kids, you get hired in a school, kindergarten or equivalent.

If you want money to pay for your car and rent, you get hired anywhere. Kestrel can't stand kids either, and she works there. Retail stores are evil, but they pay. Even if it's not so well, they pay.

Example (one of my friends worked in a supermarket)
Kid : Hello mister Fish! You cut the heads of the fishies with yer big knife?
Friend : Yes, that's my job.
Kid : *giggle* it smells!
Friend : Yes, that's my job too.
Kid : *frowns at poor fishy on the table* You really cut their heads with yer big knife?
Friend : *annoyed and glares at child* No, I RIP IT OFF WITH MY TEETH!!

Yeah, he's just great as a supermarket clerk.
Justin will do just fine :P

Niiiiice. Poor kid. Serves 'im right though.

I just can't imagine Justin dealing with a kid that gets a case of the "Why?"s...or the "Waah"s, seeing as Justin wouldn't answer enough questions or talk enough period to get embroiled in the "Why"s. :-?

I don't know. It was just the first character that wasn't a regular in a while, so I assumed that was the character. Plus it doesn't really look like the rest of the male characters in the strip.

If you don't acknowledge them, the kids go away on their own.

Angela does have a point though - this is retail.

I find it amuzing that for no apparent reason other than to draw semi-naked women, Angela just happens to be getting out of the shower. Justin could just as easily fade away as become a new and indepth character..
There's a differnce between image-searching for "kitty" and imagesearching for.. er.. something else.
