Guest Strip: Monday! Be heeeeeere.
its = possessive
it’s = it is
No he used the correct tense. Think about it. The appeal belongs to the situation that Warrix is speaking of. Furthermore, “admit to its appeal” is smooth and flowing while “admit to it is appeal” makes no sense grammatically.
That’s exactly what I said.
“it’s” is wrong, because it means “it is”. And that is what he wrote. And it’s wrong. Like you said.
It should be “its”.
i fully deserve to have this comment deleted for being a pedantic nuisance, especially since i don’t bother to capitalize…but ‘it’s’ does not and cannot take the apostrophe in this context. in fact, the apostrophe in ‘it’s’ is only EVER appropriate when it’s a conjunction for ‘it is’…as was used in this sentence. go ahead and delete, dave, i don’t mind.
Your comment is not pedantic. “it’s” = “it is” whereas the possessive of “it” is “its” with no apostrophe.
“You of all people have to admit to it is… appeal” does not make sense. Please correct it, David, and repost. We complain because we care about your work..
Beware the Four Horsemen of the Apostrophes.
Not at all! You should be commended – the scourge of incorrect usage of it’s/its is a blight upon all humankind! (though still not as bad as misuse of their/there/they’re…..)
Now that I think about it, you should leave it – his misuse of that apostrophe really proves once and for all how truly evil Warrix really is.
What happens when it’s dealing with something cousin It possesses?
As long as “It”, referring to the short hairy guy, was in the middle of the sentence, it would be “It’s” and you would recognize the proper name of Cousin It by the capitalization. If “It’s” ended up at the beginning of a sentence, well, you should be ashamed of painting yourself into that grammatical corner in the first place!
I was making a point that the contraction isn’t the only time you would put an apostrophe in its
Well, you did ask!
Actually, it’s Cousin Itt, so its Itt’s, not It’s. Got it?
now i begin to suspect the poor dark queen never wanted to ‘go evil’ – and that’s why warrix lost her…?
Only now you begin to suspect this? I saw that coming a long time ago, and it was quite the surprise to me at the time – but now I assume it. All the more now that we see what Warrix really wants: the innocent woman he once knew.
As for this whole situation, it’s what it’s.
it’s what it’s! hahahahahaha! I did laugh out loud at that.
for whatever nonsensical reason, that reminds me of when we learned an expression in Hebrew, while hiking the Negev desert – pronounced Mah Pi Tome? which basically means what are you talking about? (as in, are you crazy?) and we added Willis, to the Hebrew expression – mah pi tome, willis? and laughed our heads off.
He still wants the king’s fortune at this point? I rather think it hadn’t been MADE yet, in all likelihood!
BTW, note 3Xp4t’s comment to that strip: “I’ve been wondering if Ganyon might be Gypsy’s father…” Really close to the mark, and long before we had any clues that there was an actual connection between them.
I love the comic, so I feel mean pointing this out, but…that should be “its”, not “it’s”. You only use the apostrophe when you’re shortening “it is”. Never any other time.
You beat me to it. Glad I read the comments before making mine.
Wait–why would Warrix be unwillingly brought back to the past so he could then try to take advantage of it, which Ganyon pointed out to him not to do so because it would be dangerous? Something ain’t quite right, here…
Hmm. Yes, Warrix’s words in panel 1 have deep, deep impllications. I get a feeling like looking into a pit of writhing snakes — Brrr.
Warrix is in character. “A chance to take back what’s mine” … harrumph. Vasheeva as a possession? She might have something to say about that, and it ain’t gonna be pretty!
Un-pretty, yes. Question is, will she have the power to DO anything about that attitude and that goal?
Ha! Thanks, everyone! I really do appreciate your catching things like that and letting me know. I always take it in stride, because I know you care. FIXED!
(Clearing cache shows the corrected version of the graphic for me – maybe you saw it after he fixed it, thus the confusion)
