    Is… is this implying Guy doesn’t think Wayne is an idiot? I have to go think some more.. or not.

      Uh oh.

      I think Guy just breached the fourth wall.

      Run for your lives!

        how so?

          I think that it’s implied in the second panel, talking to not only Wayne but the audience. It’s a bit of a stretch though.

          *flies away

      Then, by that logic, does Guy secretly love Wayne all this time and monopolises him by manipulating the way he interacts with people to the point that only Guy (and Frank) is willing to spend any significant time with him?

      I think it was more about convincing Lars that he’s manipulating Wayne.

        Yeah. After reading a it a few more times, your statement makes more sense than mines.

        …Unless it was a double entendre. *goes back to (not) thinking*

      Or perhaps she doesn’t think Lars loves Wayne.

    Poor Lars. He just got manipulated by Guy.

    And I just have a horrible feeling that we were too

    Guy’s first line here is just gold.

    I’d love to call some ppl I know on that kind of bulshit. But then again I do value my life.

    Oh Guy, you sly fox.

    Smart girl. It’s important to keep track of all your lies and schemes so you can cross-reference them without making any errors later.

  6. DanVzare

    Does she really believe that what she said was a lie?
    Guy actually thinks that Wayne isn’t an idiot!?!

    But he is an idiot, he is easily manipulated…

    Unless she’s writing down her lie about understanding people’s emotions and opinions. We all know that she doesn’t give a crap about those, whether or not she designs them.

    And thus Guy demonstrates that the best manipulators use the truth to mislead their victims.

    All i understand is that, that shadow of hers is growing, and ive come to realize that its getting brighter down here.

  10. All Else Fails

    There should be a payback version of this comic. Just have Guy be all manipulative and lying to everyone, then have her slip up and have everyone go after her. In the end, she would be the one who’s truly been manipulated for many years.

    Good thing she’s keeping track.

    The biggest lie in that book is the word “little” on the cover.

    I… I am SO CONFUSED! Also YAY MORE LARS!

    That canNOT be Guy’s first issue of that book she’s writing. After all, if you look again, she’s only on the first few pages.

    Why is it suddenly dark in the middle panel?
