What Are Your Thoughts On Mice? (Pōpoki)

Welcome to what some of you may be shocked to learn is the very first ever multi-panel Stick!Steve comic strip that tells a story in consecutive, chronological order. However did this come about, you may ask? Well, it started with a bout of self-pity — of which I am not proud — but resulted in the following twitter conversation between myself and two of the most clever, wonderful and supportive H50 fans you could ever hope to meet: Rainy & Jana!! So this is dedicated to them & I hope it delivers what they were hoping to see.

  1. I just don’t know where to start!

    Firstly, it’s YOUR birthday and WE get a present? SQUEEEE!!!

    Danny popping the question while kneeling down <— DY.ING!!!!
    Kamekona cameo!
    Stick!Cat!! Stick!Cat hiding behind the palm tree in the first panel! Stick!Cat falling in love with McG! (this is a FEMALE cat, yes?). Stick!Cat hiding under the sofa!


    (p.s. is there a DEEPER MEANING to Stick!Cat? Or is it just… you know… sometimes a cat is just a cat?)

  2. I am in love with the cat! Is that weird?

  3. I love the cat! He/she must be part of new stories from now on. I think you captured the essence of a cat´s personality 😀 However, I am surprised Danny likes cats too, was pretty sure he was dogs only 🙂

    ok, I’m better now. StephanieJane you are the most generous person to give us a present on YOUR birthday. “I think he likes me” with the little pink heart is the Best. Thing. Ever!
    Other than the cat under the sofa, of course.
    p.s. meow?

  7. Alright, okay, I am dying and have no patience….I need to know the *cats* name!!

  8. OMG…The cat under the sofa is amazing. I hope stick cat sticks around. 😉

    Happy Birthday!

  9. O. M. G.
    2nd panel, cracks me up. The bromance in a nutshell.
    The faces. I have no idea how you make the faces so expressive. Every face make me LOL.
    And the last panel … all together now … awwwwwwwwwwwww! Love.

    I think Gracie must meet Cat 🙂
    Or maybe Cat will tangle with Doris next time she messes with his person 🙂

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope you have a purr-fect day!

    PS, I totally missed cat in the first panel 😦 But I didn’t miss the two chairs.

    • The chairs!!!! 😀

      I’m glad you like their faces. They really tell the story. Yay for last panel love!! So adorable. I think McG would be the type to assume he is not a cat person but would find he really is!! Thanks for your inspiration. I loved drawing this, so thank you. 🙂

  10. This is wonderful, StephJ.
    Love the drawings of the cat.
    I can’t help thinking that Danny was also a stray that Steve brought inside and who ended up drinking Steve’s milk and sleeping on the sofa.

  11. “Get.” “Go on now.” “Darn cat”. BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

    This is FABULOUS, babe, and put a big ol’ smile on my face. Thank you!

  12. This is so awesome I actually want to print it out. Is there an easy way to do that? I never figured it out with that one you did for me.

  13. Bah! I wasn’t finished!

    I love that Steve’s default reaction is to go to his own door with a gun (also, poor Steve awwww). The cat is amazing.

    Now every time I see Danny and Steve in the car in the morning I am going to think about how their morning started, with Danny raiding his fridge.

  14. I’m a cat person, so this is beyond awesome.

  15. McG automatically drawing his gun….Danno on his knees….cat under the couch…all priceless. And of course it is assumed McG is driving to work asking for the keys…love it….and always always the stick thigh holsters.
    I must have missed the memo on when you became the Fact Checker, there must be a story for it?? Or tired of kicking all the junk around. Political maybe? That should keep you busy. Hope today’s day was all a 29 year old could hope for. 🙂

  16. OMG I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS!!!!! Stick Cat has filled me with so much happy i can’t even tell you. I LOVE that Stick Cat is orange! In my head Stick Cat is Steve, even though Steve is Steve & thus may be confusing. SO MANY FEELINGS!

  17. Yay! So clever and freaking adorable! Stick Cat is an awesome pet for Stick Steve! Awaiting the next episode!

  18. As I wanted to say 3 days ago when WP rejected me so rudely ….:(
    Thanks for our birthday post Steph. Hope it was a great day!
    I love the cat’s whiskers…through thick and thin it stays the same 🙂
    Your ability to convey emotions with just a few lines is amazing…..you are a very talented “stick figure” artist!
