Still bitter about Earth Science. Bitter enough to devote an entire comic and its one panel to it.
In all seriousness, I once imagined Matt and Rat as sort of rivals to Elliot and Tedd. I'm pretty sure I planned on Rat (the one being held back in this comic) being revealed as a martial artist at some point. It was... It was NOT well planned. In fact, I don't think they come back after this comic.
I hope I'm right about that. If they do, well... I'm out of insight. It will be back to denying they're there again.
Side note: I'm betting Earth Science can actually be a super fun subject. I mean, it's the Earth! Plus SCIENCE! How do you mess that up?!
