Punching Bag

Punching Bag published on 271 Comments on Punching Bag

Because I couldn’t update the comic last week, I have an early Las Lindas update this week, and a second one as normal, so hopefully you won’t have to wait that long!

Had a sweet Valentines? Miles sure seem to feel very friendly and loving, but I don’t think Rachael will have any of it. Does she? At last this will give her the opportunity to freely punch Miles in the face.

I feel bad for the poor guy already.

  • i find it noble of miles to try to alleviate rachel of her stress. although i do have one question for him, “are you certifiably insane??!?!”

    • Miles

      YES!

    • Punchingbag

      nonsense, think about it Miles is a punching bag… he has been beaten up by everyone. This is what he does for a living.

      • william

        yeah, but still, there’s a difference between just getting beaten up and being beaten up to within an inch of your life. even if he’s used to the physical abuse he shouldn’t be seeking it out. unless he’s a major masochist.

  • wolfzero001

    …. Well say goodbye to Miles. All that will be left is a stain on the wall. xD

    • vgmaster9

      Hey, he fared well against an impact from a cannon, I’m sure he’ll do fine in a fight.

  • Neku

    I honestly wouldn’t count him out. If he’s been a rebel his whole life, odds are he knows at least something to keep from being knocked out by what likely were many people irritated by his behavior.
    I doubt he’ll end up winning in the fight, though. Probably doing his job of stress relief and preaching the good word of how not-so-negative her situation is, but not winning a fight.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Miles is shown to be a confident fighter. I mean, we don’t know all that much about him from Learning Curves other than he’s a bit of a pervert. I mean, he could have taken up fighting lessons somewhere for the hell of it, before he dropped out of college.

  • I really wouldn’t be all that surprised if Miles turns out to be able to hold his own.

    • The_Rippy_One

      Given that he actually dropped into the classic boxer’s stance, you may not be wrong…

      • GES280

        his rear elbow is out too far and his hands are too low and far apart. that said the stance itself is pretty solid if you’re a lightweight who dodges instead of blocks.

        • The_Rippy_One

          true. And let’s face it, in this fight, dodge is the name of the game 😉 For Miles anyway…

  • BrootN4cer

    Personally, I think we and Rachel are going to be surprised at how competent Miles is going to be at hand-to-hand combat. Just because we haven’t seen Miles in a fight, does not mean he hasn’t been trained somewhere before he arrived at Las Lindas. Sure he has been comic relief for a long time, but what if he was doing that so everyone underestimates him? He makes me think he’s a class clown who probably grew up with a martial arts master for a parent. To him, it isn’t something he thinks of, but is available to him none the less. Just a thought.

  • I think that getting fired out of a canon really screwed up Miles brain. CAuse no sane man would spare with a girl like Rachel while she’s in a SERIOUSLY bad mood.

    I say Miles is a black belt martial artist who just happens to be a good mechanic. Beware of characters whose initial role was to be comic relief or the “punching bag” of many comedic scenes. Often those kind of characters turn out to have something that they are extremely proficient at and that it is a complete contrast to what you would think at first glance.

  • I really admire the way Rachael is handling her frustrations. She’s letting her anger out in a healthy way and is even trying her best to “keep it together”. I find that her looking so furious while beating the life out of a punching bag and thinking “I’ll show her grumpy pants!” to be kinda adorable/hysterical. She’s definitely taking what Sarah said the wrong way by making herself believe Sarah also considers her a bitch, though. Rachael has a problem; one where she constantly feels like everyone is out to get her, even if she knows it isn’t true on a subconscious level. (I hope.) She really does need to find someone other than Minos to open up to and find a friend in. Right now she’s feeling ganged up on by everyone on the farm and betrayed by her only sister. I’m sure we’re all expecting Miles to take on that role as her new friend, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t evolve into anything deeper than that. ><; I am, however, happy she told Miles to give her space instead of full on yelling at him or straight up punching him down. She at least gave him a warning before he offered sparing with her in a heated state. I'm curious to see how this turns out. I think Rachael is stronger than Miles by a long shot, but he might stand a chance (seeing as how he did start working out a lot after that beat down from Minos forever ago).

    • Halosoulfire

      I’ve got this odd feeling that things won’t go the way most people here think it will. He looks like he will at least give as good as he might get, or even better.

      I do like the analysis of Rachael by the way.

  • trombley

    Well what’s the worst that can happen? He’s already been fired out of a cannon by Tootsie, punched by Minos, thrown down a well by Mora, kicked in the balls by Sarah, chased by a lawnmower during Digit’s malfunction (not blaming her), had a punch bowl dumped on his head by Taffy (in before forum civil war), fell off a cliff after Din and Jin hypnotized him, tied up by Rachael and mouth-burned by Randal’s spicy food. I think he can take Rachael’s abuse.

    • Carbuncles

      you forgot when digit jammed a water hose in his pants and turned it on

    • NekoHybrid

      Idward was the one chased by the lawnmower actually.

Really hope he knows Martial Arts since he is one of my fav characters.

    May I leave a friendly suggestion? Please don’t take offense to this as I enjoy your comic and your art. Try thickening their necks abit, I don’t mean body builder thick, but they have the tendency to have very thin necks, and in some views it looks strange. Also racheal is a body builder, so her waist tends to be a tad thicker. BUT with that said…good art, good comic, keep it up

    And ironically after beating him she feels sorry for him and holds him in which the poor fool decides to steal a kiss off her or cop a feel only for her to drop him like a dead weight sack

    • Gourry Gabrief

      That’s kind of what I think Miles is planning. Yet I don’t think he hopes to be able to score already a kiss. In fact, even though I’d like to see them as a couple, I’m still not sure if he’s interested in her. He might just want to help a comrad which is as badly treated by Mora as him.

      • Dude

        Basically Miles is entering a win-win-lose situation.
        The only way to lose is being defeated pathetically(or losing his life, but what are the odds of that?)
        The obvious way to win is to win the fight.
        And then there’s the part where he loses but still gains Rachels respect, which is still a win.

        • Gourry Gabrief

          I don’t even think winning the fight is the correct choice. What Miles want is as he said, to calm down Rach’. Not to dominate her.

    I really hope miles ends up kicking her ass. That would be eye opening as hell!!!

  • Nightscape

    It be pretty funny if Miles turned out to be a competent fighter (or competent at something other than slacking off).

    he going to get he`s ass kickit !

  • ScorpDK

    Smug bastard :3
    This will be the moment where we see how Miles fares when he KNOWS that he’s about to get into a flurry of angry kitten blows. Several outcomes exist, but I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t walk into this without a plan or some skill at deflecting or dodging her attacks. Show us what you got, cat 😀

    Also brings us back to their escapade to the arena; he might probably be trying to score some points with her by being a competent sparring partner. 🙂

    … Has she already broke a punching bag? … Run Miles, run!

    Anyway, I think Rachels really needs to open her mind and try to understand what Sarah said, but at least she is not disturbing others with her rage.

    I have to say too that being Rachel so deep in her anger, makes Miles more likely to win because he can think clearer but, in the other hand, Rachel’s anger could make her beats stronger.

  • Someone has anger issues.I mean ‘Sarah is one of them?’ One of who? Who doesn’t pander to your insecurities? Sarah never said you were a bitch. She just thinks you are too uptight and too tightly wound up. You need to relax.

    3 things can come out of this:

    1. They team up and decide to screw over Mora
    2. The sparring session turns into a makeout session
    3. They start a secret underground society that sets up fights for random strangers wanting to blow off steam, then later on she finds out that miles isn’t actually real, but instead someone she created in her own mind due to her anger and desertion of everyone on the farm.

    From the reaction of Rach, I can tell she won’t go at full strength. But that still might knock Miles down.

    Geeez! I don’t know why but I always see Miles like Tact Mayers and think he has always a trick under his sleeve when he plays the idiot.

    So here’s my two cents. Miles actually manages to hold up against Rachel, causing her to realize that even the lech she thinks so little of has managed to grow up and move forward, while she is still the same paranoid kitten who needs to run away when things get rough.

    Its mating season and not everyone deals with their body the same when it says things they arent used to, some fight till they are exhausted then cuddle up, others find it easier to be agressive than to be loving and caring. Or be like me pin them down and nibble them all over.

    Miles for all we know could actually be stronger than we think. Have we ever seen him actually seen him fight or show his strength to someone other than Minos (and we all know how that ends)? Not to mention he is also probably much smarter than Rachel.

    my opinion is that either miles is going to get knocked down (a lot) but he keeps getting up and he says something romantic or smart and racheal starts thinking clearly again and they may go on a date or in the next panel miles does something that enrages racheal even more taking all of her anger that was directed at sarah, mora and everyone else and lets completely wail on him. either way he gets points for bravery and chivarlyness

    I would like to think that Miles owns her ass in the sparing match. Not beat her up but throw her a couple of times. I mean if you think about it this cat has come up with one surprise after another over the years. Making you judge him one way and then coming out with something that shatters that perception. What’s to say he doesn’t’ know some martial arts, plus I think it will be good for Rachel to loose a fight, might help shift her perspective a little. Especially with some ‘un-Miles-like’ sage advice afterwards.

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if he was deadly capable? They established at the beginning that he didn’t have a superhuman…. er, superfeline? capacity for physical work, but he’s never been in a scrap, so it isn’t actually known what his fighting ability is, he could be like Rurouni Kenshin, doofy on the outside, invincible in reality. But we shall see.
