Hey everyone, hope you guys are having a good week! We're pretty tired here in the TOGM house, as we spent the day at the Science Centre for the Harry Potter exhibit (and the rest of the stuff.)

It was a pretty cool exhibit, and the presentation before you actually go in is done very well. We got to see some people get sorted by the sorting hat, saw the train, and then a TON of costumes from the movies. It just reminds you how short most of them were. Haha!

But wow, some of those costumes were spectacularly done! It makes me look forward to the last movie.

Oh, and we did some aging thing, but ALL of the kids were off the marker somehow, and ended up looking like weirdos. I joked that they sort of looked like the people in The Ring movie, but none of the kids got the reference. Probably for the best. ;)

As for comic related things, as you can see, Sylene's probably hamming up her side of the interrogation, so I wouldn't feel too bad for her tears in the last strip ;)

Thanks to the people who are using the forum ;)

I'm really exhausted from our day .. In fact, I just woke up from a nap on the couch to write a little blurb here. So I'm feeling pretty spaced out here. With that note, I just want to say hi, hope you enjoy the comic, and see you again on Monday!

Umm.. why is "be a while" in a different font?
Surely such an awesome comic doesn't make mistakes...

Magravan edit delete reply
I don't know where you guys got this crazy idea that it's an awesome comic :)

But yeah, clearly he's .. inflecting it.. and I'm showing that by using a completely different font that I couldn't name if you paid me.

No one has said how much they love panel 1? I couldn't believe how good the foreshortening is and the comic life breathed into Karl! Maybe it's just me, maybe it's just because he's doing the universally recognized gesture for I want to squeeze boobs, but I love it. :D
Lunaroki edit delete reply
I get the feeling Sylene enjoys these interrogations way too much. ^,^
Magravan edit delete reply
@DW - Thanks for the positive comments :) I think June's been in need of some lately ;)

@Lunaroki - She certainly does give that impression, doesn't she?

Hmmmm likes handcuffs eh!

Sylene almost looks like she needs to change her pants after that last frame.

But on another note, I've been debating joining the site so I can leave a comment without showing up as a guest, but if TOGM.com (or whatever) is going to be up and running soon, is there really a point???
Magravan edit delete reply
@del c - I think she does!

@RedJar - Funny you should say that... June made a picture with the word FAAAAART behind her for a user pic someplace ;)
As for joining, I'm biased. I think that it's worthwhile just because there are other good comics also hosted on Comicfury. So I think it's worthwhile for that reason.

As for the Greymeat.com site, it's up, but it's ... questionable, still. There's a forum there though, so that's worthwhile.. We are actually considering looking into a new host, because our current host wants to pretend like there's nothing wrong when I can't really use the site at all...

Ultimately, we're going to keep following all the mirrors, and answering comments that are left on the pages... So whether you write it here or on Greymeat.com, it's somewhat irrelevant :)

I saw you playing tf2. You were idling.

I've been having connection problems recently...

@Skrael: o.o Should I be amused or horrified at that? Because I am both.

It's great.
Confusion. :D
Magravan edit delete reply
Horrified. The smell is horrible.

I hear that TOGM farts are deadly.
Lunaris_Starchilde edit delete reply
so... girl zombies fart?

I thought only skeevy stoner zombies fart.
Magravan edit delete reply
Girl zombies do what real girls do... Fart and blame it on the nearest guy / animal.

@Skrael That pic is epic. It's currently the background image on my laptop.
RedJar edit delete reply
Oh yeah... and i joined the site, so now i'm looking for some reccomendations for good comics on here.
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Thank you, and glad to see that you have joined RedJar :) How did you find TOGM?

I recommend:
Frost Fire
Out OF World
Angry Faerie
Chronicles of Loth
Counter Clockwise
Thorns in our side
Animal Magnetism
Insanity Corp
2/3 Dead
Love Kills Slowly
Sunday Smash
Magula Fantabula
Too Strange for Words
Them's The Breaks
Into The Orchard
Worme * This series is over but still awesome
Lumberjacks are also Ninjas
Tomb with a View * This series is also over, but still awesome
Danny Diode
Project Funemployment
They're Nuts!

Some of these don't update any more :/
Sorry if I missed any that I love :)
Magravan edit delete reply
Wow, Skrael's list is pretty long... Two suggestions off the top of my head are Pitch Black and We Could Be Happy, both of which I was looking at just recently :)

Mushroom Go's fantastic too! (Yes, I am adding some as I remember them :P) Highly recommend checking it out if you were into Mario in any capacity, and still strongly recommend it even if you weren't.

I found you through an ad banner on Questionable Content and wondered "what the hell is TOGM???" so clicked it, and the rest is kind of history i guess.
Onyx Tanuki (Guest) edit delete reply
Not sure if this has been covered in a previous page's thread, but... is the guys' (well, now Sylene's) food actually TOGM dyed and flavored so it resembles the food they had in life, or is it actual human food? And if it's the latter, then how does it get digested, if at all?

Also, when I saw the radio message, I almost read it as, "Stop what you're doing, 'cause I'm about to ruin..." So now I have the Humpty Dance stuck in my head. Yes, I'm spunky AND I like my oatmeal lumpy.
Magravan edit delete reply
@RedJar - Oh cool, thanks :) It's always nice to know which sites people came from so that we can use our paltry advertising budget more effectively...

I sometimes worry that when I advertise on places that are popular people will be disappointed in comparison..

@Onyx Tanuki - Haha, it's dyed and reconstituted in a different form, but it's still TOGM :)

Some people want to maintain the illusion, people like R.Z. actually enjoy the fact that it looks and tastes like brains...
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Perhaps the lower your category, the more you want the more realistic TOGM?

@RedJar We're pretty big QC fans :) He inspired me a lot art-wise
Magravan edit delete reply
It would make sense, I'll have to consult the manual ;)
Drivinallnight (Guest) edit delete reply
Noticing the fruit in the baskets looked pretty tempting :)
Skrael (I'm the artist)
@Drivinallnight - She actually just goes out and picks those for decoration :)
Magravan edit delete reply
@Drivinallnight & Skrael - Wax fruit ;) She might replace them at times with the real thing, but typically it's wax fruit ;)

Magravan edit delete reply
There's probably a bunch that we missed too... There are a lot of really enjoyable comics on Comicfury :)
