I used an interrobang in this strip.
Interrobang is a funny word. Interrobang interrobang interrobang.

My favorite strip so far in this story. Especially Kate’s face in the last panel! Can’t wait to figure this all out.
Skye’s mom looks like Donatella Versacie, I know I butchered the spelling of the name but you get the idea. Well done sir.
That’s not an interrobang; an interrobang is a single, integrated piece of punctuation.
That isn’t an interrobang, an interrobang is a single character: ‽
What you did: !?
Skye’s parents are the second richest and most connected people in the state… why do I have the feeling that they’re going to pay off the judges in the end?
I think Skye did it. Heheh. She faked her own death. Unless I’m forgetting some irrefutable piece of evidence earlier.
They found her body stabbed a whole bunch, didn’t they? Unless I’m misremembering…
For some reason I imagined the father looking like Fabio with a pornstache. I don’t even know why I got that image ._. He got one damn nose, though, and looks pissed while is wife kind of looks like she’s M’eh-ing. The mother is exactly what I expected, an older version of Skye. With ubber hugue glasses. Seriously, they’re like half her head xD
Some of the shadowy silouhette in the public looks like ConeHeads xD or is it just me?
Dave, Bbot, Mystify:
so, you were so sure alex got interrobang wrong you didn’t even look it up?
^… My bad!
^ still tho. you guys are pedants!
Her father looks like Nixon…
“I am not a crook!”
He reminds me more of Dan Hedaya (Carla’s husband in Cheers)
they’re right. what he used isn’t an interrobang, it’s just “!?”
the only place that’s really considered an interrobang is algebraic chess notation. and that’s according to the link you posted. i’m not sure why you think they’re wrong, but… they aren’t.
but hey, it’s not like whether it’s an interrobang or not changes the whole meaning of the strip.
When you get down to it, usage defines the rules. So lets make some up! If everybody uses them, then it becomes the standard.
(&) Used at end of run-on sentences. Denotes that neither part contained anything of value other than that they were connected by a run-on.
~! For very mild emphasis.
~? For rhetorical questions.
^*^ Denotes either a statement that the speaker will refuse to listen to counter arguments, or a bat.
I think that it would be a great idea if we all started using these ^*^
The previous comments have left me with nothing more to say… its for the best i suppose though!
