No wonder Defoe is looking rushed. You're spending yer time working on a proposal strip!
Get back to proper work, ya bum!

Conor said...

Separate thread for the response?? Your public want to know!

Emperor said...

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.

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!

Mel said...

That's brill Leigh. Did she say yes lol? I'm so happy for you both. It's about bloody time though x

Mart said...

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

Niki said...

This is embarrassing me.

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.

Rhinocerouslip Bumcrack said...

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

Anonymous said...

If that didn't land you a resounding YES, followed by being tackled, I don't know what will! :D

Juliet A said...

This is the most romantic thing I've ever seen - You deserve true love.

Elmo said...

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!

Dave Roman proposed to Raina Telgemeier this way several years ago. http://www.webcomicsnation.com/daveroman/engaged/series.php?view=archive&chapter=2085

Nonetheless, I wish I had the artistic ability and guts to do it either way.

It's November 8! What's the verdict?

Toni Marie said...

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.
