The best and quickest way describe Calvin would be to call him an alcoholic. That would not grasp the scope of this dynamic character and what he is all about, though in the strip he is ALWAYS drinking. He is also the guy that goes to a bar with you and ends up getting five numbers from girls AND guys. And oral in the bathroom. He also makes you question your sexuality and consider purchasing a case of KY, Heineken and a pack of smokes and try to seduce him yourself.
Have you ever been at a party/concert/quilting show and had someone walk up to you slyly and whisper in your ear Ã¢â‚¬Å“I just crapped my pants.Ã¢â‚¬Â Or better yet, show up and your house walk in without saying a word, look you in they eye and with a large smile on their face and you watch their eyes slowly look down to their own crotch and insinuate with nothing but facial ticks that they not only went and got their tongue pierced, they pierced the penis as well? If you did, I’m sure Dylan was that friend.
Ever have that friend who was fun to hang around with but you always sort of wondered if they where gay or not? That’s JN. His parents cursed him with only letters for a name leaving him to a life of explanations. Because of this he became somewhat of an introvert and reclusive. This went away after his teenage years when he made friends and decided to try and be creative. It is still evident in him if you look hard enough.
That guy that can’t put down a cigarette even if you are in the cancer ward of a hospital, yeah that’s Nick. He would also fight you to the death to keep his hat on. He spent 4 years in the Air Force serving the USA and learned nothing expect that he missed female contact. Air Force boys, while smooth to the touch and fragile, just would not cut it. He is back from the a tour in Kuwait and sometimes has a flashback to his life in the bunker with the other sissies not good enough to be cannon fodder.
