My lord! I love the strip, and I have to say, that's incredibly romantic!I hope she says yes...
I do hope she says yes!:D
Classy, sir. Self effacing and very funny. Best of luck & happiness. Cheers!
This is the coolest proposal I've ever seen.
No wonder Defoe is looking rushed. You're spending yer time working on a proposal strip!Get back to proper work, ya bum!
Separate thread for the response?? Your public want to know!
Oh bravo - you make even the best of us look like cold-hearted unromantic lumps!She'd better say yes after all that - I know I would and that'd just be weird.
NO! I'm going after the other guy.niki
Did she say yes, or will there be an issue #2? (Don't ever give up!)
Yes! Yes, damn you, I will!
Yes. Yes I will. Very muchly so thank you.
Aand the answer is?
I'm getting all choked up here man. Felt like you were proposing to ME. Well done Leigh, best of luck with everything. Word of advice: do it asap before her Ma gets involved and it snowballs.
What an awesomely thoughtful gesture!
That's brill Leigh. Did she say yes lol? I'm so happy for you both. It's about bloody time though x
You're a lovely fella, that much is obvious. All the best with Niki's response - I suspect you're going to be hearing something positive. But I'll shut up and let someone more gorgeous come in ...
Well done Leigh & Niki, I am available for weddings, christenings & bar mitvahs
This is embarrassing me.
This is so cute it's retarded. I'm having a "d'awwwwwwwww" moment over here. Best of luck to you both of you! (Hope she says yes!)
Wow that is unreal...niki is one lucky girl!!!
And? The answer? :)
She must be a really special girl. Your comic reminds me of why I keep my special girl in my life. Here's hoping she says "Yes!"
What did she say???
I am an internet stranger and you just made me cry. Just lovely.
Ahhh come on, Niki!
Hope she said YES! This is the sweetest thing a comic book artist/geek could do for their significant other. As a species, we're really not that bad.Congrats guys.
F* A man, hope she says Yes
Yes, I will marry you. darling. xxxx
Je crois qu'avec une demande comme celle-ci, vous ne pouvez dire non Niki ... ;-)... Félicitations et longue vie à vous deux...I think with a very important question asked like this, you can't say "no" Niki... ;-) ... Congratulation and have a long life together.
Oh my god, awesome
This is freaking awesome! Say yes Nicki!!!! He obviously loves you very much.
BEST. PROPOSAL. EVER.
Simply awesome. May your happiness never be retconned. Cheers!
Saw your link on tumblr. Just awesome! Congrats! How could Niki say say no? ;)
You, sir, are an honest-to-goodness, down-home, sweet, sappy, inspired, genius.I salute you and all who sail in you.And this post was all 7 shades of awesome.
I hope she says YES!!!! you're great! congrats!!!!
You, sir, are a genuine genius. And this post fully deserves all 7 shades of awesome.
Beaucoup de bonheur pour vous 2 !Cat

Say yes Nikigotweird.com
That line about the cake choked me up. You're my hero for noticing greatness in someone for the little things. Good luck to you both.
If shes says no - I'll marry ya Leigh!
I love all of the "Nikis" and "Anons" that answer for her. You ppl suck.According to Mental Floss she said yes! Congrats to you both, that's awesome. :)
OMG that is so adorable! I hope she says yes!
Are you sure she reads your blog ? :P
Whatever Niki says, I think it's one of the cutest proposals. Good luck!
hey leigh, i'm not very familiar with your work. but this strip is insanely awesome. you are one cool dude and she sounds wonderful! cheers
Awesome. Were you inspired by this at all?http://www.websnark.com/archives/2007/01/submitted_witho_1.html
Omigawwwd....this was yes so romantic! Wish you all the best, but first and foremost I hope she says yes!
Nice one : )
Well done fella. Not only did Dafoe finish this week and a cracking read it was, you go and post on of the most romantic proposals i seen yet. Bill Murray's got nothing on you. Although i was surprised her name was Niki and not Pat. But Pat's got one in every port i reckon. :P
If that didn't land you a resounding YES, followed by being tackled, I don't know what will! :D
This is the most romantic thing I've ever seen - You deserve true love.
That sucked! There were no explosions or zombies in this comic. Where's the dang plot twist, man? C'mon, ya gotta have a plot twist! More gore and blood!ELMO
I really hope she said yes!! Best ever!!!
I envy you on so many levels... I hope she said yes and I wish you both the best.
What a creative and fun proposal...well done! :)Liesl :)
Congratulations man.Eqauls parts touching and hilarious. 2 excuses to cry. All the best,LeeBrown1990
That was so awesome way to propose I hope she said yes.
Bravo!!! How could ANY woman resist???!!
yes ....yes.... yes..... I will.. Oh. But I'm allergic to dogs.
Dave Roman proposed to Raina Telgemeier this way several years ago. http://www.webcomicsnation.com/daveroman/engaged/series.php?view=archive&chapter=2085Nonetheless, I wish I had the artistic ability and guts to do it either way.
It's November 8! What's the verdict?
This proposal was so romantic and original. It will be something your fiancee will never forget.Thanks for sharing, and if she said yes, (the blog doesn't say what her response was), I wish you both many many years of happines, love and laughter together.
Well, she just can't resist this, I hope! ^___^ Cheers!
