Hey everyone, hope you're having a great week thusfar!

I guess we see why Sylene was kidnapped now ;) Sadly, it seems that the actionable intelligence regarding Sylene isn't too impressive :)

And isn't that a lovely shot of Thomas? Those of you who saw the streams might recognize the image :) That was one of the original images intended for our fine hero ;D

And now we know how the Phantom originally figured out how to hide himself from Robert! We might have already figured this out, actually. It's hard for me to remember what I've told you guys and what I've just been thinking about as I outline the story...

The one bad part about my method of story writing is that I've got a lot of portions figured out already, but I have to work to make up the individual scenes that bring us between one point and the next... So sometimes I've been thinking about something for so long that I'm sure you guys have known about it for a while now...

Oh, Jrade, send me a PM on Comicfury and let me know what address you want that shirt sent to. The sooner you send it, the more likely it gets to you before Christmas :D

And on that note, we got LKS gear! June'll mention it in her note, I'm sure. I just wanted to share my enjoyment of checking out some of his swag :D

Anyway, off to watch the Walking Dead on PVR :) Seeyas next week!

First comment! wuu wuu wuu!

@ Magravan - Whoo! I finally won something! Go thirteen, always lucky! Consider my address sent. If it's too much, give it to whoever's second on the list.

"I didn't know anything..."...yeah...that's kind of an understatement...

@ Skrael - Awesome art again! Especially Sylene's face in the final panel, so indignant!
bbedlam edit delete reply
Yeah, I'm not impressed with the Phantom's intel either. Sylene doesn't seem to have the attention span to be gathering information. On the plus side, in the last panel she does look like she's um... groping herself a bit.
Jrade edit delete reply
@ bbedlam - What about Phantom in the first panel? Just noticed that...
bbedlam edit delete reply
@Jrade - well that's just plain wrong!
Skrael (I'm the artist)
You guys are sickos! Sylene's rubbing her belly :)
Magravan edit delete reply
@Zephirot93 - If you start people posting "First!" on the comics, I'm going to make sure that you get TF2 again just so that I can come spy-stab your ass.

@Jrade - Nah, it should be fine for shipping. Sorry to everyone else who entered, you have no chance to win this time ;)

@bbedlam - Even when we're not running panty shots or cleavage, people still find things to enjoy in the comic :D

The two of you are unlocking our secret attempt to sexy up the comic via unintentionally ambiguous posing ;)
greengirl77 (Guest) edit delete reply
first! J/K ;p
hmm the plot thickens with our friend John...I mean Thomas. Lovin' it!
Hagelander (Guest) edit delete reply
i'm sorry Skrael but her right hand is NOT on her belly
Keij (Guest) edit delete reply
@Hagelander Her right hand, if it's touching her at all, is above the boob.
Her left hand is on the top of her belly.
Tze-Ting (Guest) edit delete reply
Drawing that laptop must've been hell. :D
Curator edit delete reply
it seems they are referring to the gesturing of her right hand, to them it looks like she is groping herself because of the perspective, and not being familiar with women who make that gesture,lol... either way, I like it:P
3.4 (Guest) edit delete reply
Using the power of my .4 and my extra-a-magical knowledge of tropes and plot twists in general to say that John is NOT Thomas but rather his twin brother.
hedgehogboy5 edit delete reply
ohmy g the plot thickens John knew this ugly zombie man before he forgot everything
geekgrrl edit delete reply
*le gasp!*
John with glasses! Which means he's actually a genius super-scientist.
Yup. Glasses mean EVERYTHING.
And I was really happy to have a new TOGM to help celebrate Turkey day!
ArtistXXY edit delete reply
Hmm... i just noticed out of my long subscription list... i only kept up with TOGM so far. (sigh... it's hard for me to remove the subscriptions of the comics i don't read)
model_S (Guest) edit delete reply
john is awsome? amazing. perhaps he'll remember his awsome and defeat robert with l33t nerd skiiz!

note: i'll be posting pics on the forum soon. ZOMBIE POOOOOOOOSE!!
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
... the above is me i put an underscore for some reason...

anyways TOPIC 100.0!
woot pics.
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
I suppose that was fairly predictable. I think someone somewhere along the line got that connection. I mean, pretty much everyone knew John/Tom was connected to The Phantom in some way; that was obvious from the very first time we heard about The Phantom. :P
I don't know if anyone got this EXACT version, but I think someone came close? Who was it?
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
Also, Wild Mass Guessing: Tom WANTED to lose his memory and become someone like John, either 1: as an epic gamble to hide better, via stupidity. :P, or
2: 'Cause he was sick of cat-and-mouse against Robert.
...Or Maybe a bit of both. :P

Also, from what I can tell, it looks like you need to make Robert a lot worse. Right now, he might seem like a tyrant dictator, but he DID help create the Zombie Society. So, for him to really fill the role of a villain, there has to be a twist, like he created the virus (what many have speculated), that he's gone insane (probable, considering his paranoia shown so far), that he's actually got some far more sinister motives (like, say, destroying society for some reason), wants to become a six (this one is obvious, but to do so, he needs to do something super-villainous), or maybe all of the above. :P
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
fine. i see how it is. i feel the love! /wrist ... /come back as a zombie-

there now do you love me!! -fake cries-
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
i know this is way past late, but did anyone notice in the "so you're a zombie now" catagory 4 the "cutting edge contacts & replacements" is pointing at the girl's eyes and boobs? or am i the only one that noticed that?
Magravan edit delete reply
Wow! Lots of comments :D I was out all day getting myself lost :D

@greengirl77 - I think that we're not even remotely popular enough for people to care who posts first, and really, I'm pretty sure that's one of those internet things that everyone would be happier if no one did it anymore ;P

That being said, Zephirot is still getting spy stabbed :P

@Hagelander - I don't think she was talking about her right hand ;P

@Keij - Yep ;D

@Tze-ting - I don't envy her the time it took...

@Curator - Hehehe :) I think that she was drawing Sylene with her arms crossed below her boobs, which is a sort of defensive body language... then she needed to twist her hand around to interact... From a body language perspective, I wouldn't think that Sylene's feeling terribly safe talking to him..

@3.4 - But who is the evil one? That's like... mandatory, right?

@hedgehogboy5 - We're working on a plot gumbo, with Sylene and R.Z. sprinkled over top for levity :)

@geekgrrl - Glasses add intelligence, everyone knows that. I keep saying so on my application for insurance to pay for glasses for me, but it seems they wont accept that... I just want some sunglasses, darn it.

And we're happy to export our comic so that you can enjoy your (late) holiday :)

@ArtistXXY - We're honoured :) I keep a lot of people on my list even though I doubt that they are ever going to update again... Sometimes it makes me sad...

@model S - Awesome ;P That's a good zombie pose... I wonder if someday June might cobble you all together into a proper horde :D

@ranger_brian_new - No idea :) I'll be the first to say that a lot of my plots are probably completely transparent to those who know what to look for... Ideally, it'll get better with time ;)

As for your thoughts on what I should do to make him a Villain, I already had him take Chad's head off.. that's clearly villainous and everyone hates him for it, right? Exactly! Done and done.

@model S - Errr, stop emoing up my comment section? :P

And ... no, you're probably the only one to have noticed. Perv.
moizmad edit delete reply
Does Sylene have any provocative photos to sell?
LazyRanger (Guest) edit delete reply
Whatever happened to Chad having been written well enough for us to not care? :P
No, no, you need another victim! :P
Akuji (Guest) edit delete reply
Wow... I just read through the whole comic just recently for the first time. incredible. I've already reccomended it to a friend. bravo. Also, looking at Thomas you'd think he went into deep hiding! wearing contacts and started looking like a two or three, "changing his name" to john... slippery and all by accident.
Magravan edit delete reply
@moizmad - Provactive? Maybe :) Indecent, probably not :P

@LazyRanger - That's so heartless... He's a living, breathing, human being and therefore worthy of compassion!

@Akuji - Awesome, thanks for spreading the word :) That was actually the initial conception of John, so you can see that we made some changes between conceptualizing the characters and actually starting :D

Bah, Robert was just a bigger fish (as There's Always A Bigger Fish), and Chad was quite clearly introduced purely to show us how bad Robert must be: anything which can beat Chad must be worse. We'll never see Chad again!
(...For about ten comics. :P)
I mean, face it, he's DEAD! :P
Magravan edit delete reply
Uhm... I'm not sure how many comics until Chad comes back... Depends on how much I enjoy this next arc, and what makes sense to come next.. :)
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
Yeah, ten was just a guess. More important was the whole joke. Y'know, "We'll never see him again; he's dead!" being a common movie line and all. ;)
(I'm kinda curious to see more of Robert to see how much "Well Intentioned" is in his "Extremist". :P
Magravan edit delete reply
I'm actually hoping to limit Robert's viewpoints as much as I can... He's better off working in the background ;)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
haha thanks mag, i was being emo for fun. i actually took like 15 pics but those were the best ones. i was gonna get some zombie stuff this year on halloween but i couldn't find any. hope to be a 1 soon ^^
Magravan edit delete reply
I mentioned on the other comic that June has closed the One thing off for a while, since we've got a bunch of entries and haven't done more than one of them.

We might open it back up later, I dunno.
Hagelander (Guest) edit delete reply
it would be hilarious to turn The Stig into a one
Magravan edit delete reply
I just spent like an hour reading about the character :P My friend likes it, but it's not as prevalent in Canada as it is in the UK..
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
well obviously i meant that i hope you guys start using them!
Magravan edit delete reply
I think we might find use for some soon :)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
yay! more 1 people! that'll be awsomesauce!
Frosty edit delete reply
Haha, I just noticed you guys hit 200 subscribers...! Well done~
You gain them so fast though. What's your secret :D...?
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
their secret is ME! ... not really but i probably help alot. i'm always finding ways to advertise TOGM.
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Ones for everyone! Doesn't sound as good when you put it that way, I suppose...

@Ice the frosty cat - Thank you :) Honestly, I don't know what the secret is.. People not unsubscribing when they stop reading, maybe? :)

Oh! Being on the top of the All Time Popular probably gets us some interest and then they subscribe? I can say that bombarding some people with our signature blocks on CF forums worked at least once :D
