Ahhhh, the age old question "Which day is this actually going to be shown to people?" :) Well, it's another Thursday, which means we're here for some more TOGM ;)

So, as you may have noticed, Chad and Alexander got their bodies back, and apparently have been tasked with tracking down the fugitive. Buuut what?! They're calling him the Phantom? That seems fishy, don't you think? Something's afoot, methinks!

Oh, if you're not getting Chad's comment, he lost his head after telling Robert about their failure with Sylene... So he's going to let them explain their own failure this time... You may have also noticed that he neglected to mention that he had seen him before as well... Wonder why that is ;)

We probably will only stay with this scene for 1 more... Possibly 2 at tops... But it's important to get back to these guys and show what's going on...

June railed against the idea of having the same haircut and look, but like I said to her, Karl is supposed to be one of the few 'oddballs' in the PSOs.. If they are all oddballs, it kind of ruins the effect...

Soooo, hopefully people can tell the difference in the future, but I guess we'll see :D

I applied for a second job as a casual bartender, and one of the people involved just told me that they are doing interviews next week, so I'm hoping to get a call or email about it soon. My current job doesn't allow for overtime really, so I'm hoping to find a way to bring in a little extra money to pay for things. Wish me luck!

And on that note, have a great weekend! We'll see you back on Monday (hopefully!)

At first, when I read the Alt text, I was all like "But... heads don't weigh nearly that much..."
And then I realized I had it backwards.

Also, all the "quotation marks" around the food made me chuckle. It's a nice touch. :)

(P.S. Sorry, but I am back to commenting now. :P Maybe.)

June was particularly amused with the idea that they would put quotation marks around everything... Entirely her idea :D

Sorry about the perspective in panel 1:/

And how everyone is drawn like crap.

As long as they have "pizza" the world can't be too bad.

indeed. i love the way chad is drawn in the lasy panel, dunno why. but anyways, great work, i'm happy karl made it in. hopefully R.Z. plays with his soja toy soon. hehe. oh so i got my entire mul2010 (music appreaciation) class wanting to know more about togm. that's 19 people!
Magravan edit delete reply
@-3- - I'm glad that you feel that way, because I heard that businesses are going to start paying people with "money" :)

@MatthewJA - Hahaha, love your new icon :D That poor frog :D

@model S - I can safely say that R.Z. is very unlikely to play with his Soja toy before 151. And probably not for some time after that... Unfortunately, the story has gotten away from me a little in the sense that I wanted to be telling silly jokes and having Beth check out the clinic again and such.. But with the Phantom having grabbed Sylene, Robert out to get John and now R.Z. having gone missing, it's kind of impossible to go "Hey, let's forget that all that stuff is happening and have some fun!" :)

After 150, I will get to play with the character interactions a little more, and start developing the remaining characters further :)

looks good skrael, idk what you are talking about. They do look skinnier though...is that intended?
Jamming edit delete reply
I feel contrary today. Skrael quit calling your art crap, its not.
...and Zero, Zero, Zero, and Zero.

I liked how in the background, everything is in quotation marks. (Nice emphasis on it not being truly the food, just TOGM flavored and molded to be like the food. :) )
The "fun" can always be made into bonus (non-canonical) comics. Or if you're impatient, fanart. ;)

Alexander's looking substantially better than the last time we saw him - it's good to see him back on his feet!

...or somebody's feet, at least.
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
Amazing, what happens when you don't get a head of yourself. :P

LOL at the menu behind Chad :D
Skrael (I'm the artist)
No comments about Robert's picture of "The Phantom" ?
Magravan edit delete reply
@greengirl77 - Pretty sure it's not... The weight loss joke in the alt-text was referring to them losing their heads :D

@Jamming - I have no idea what you meant by your Zeroes :)

@ranger_brian_new - Yep... Brain crust with shredded brain melted over brains shaped as pepperonis and bacon.

@Jrade - Possession is 9/10ths of the law! Or so I've heard... ;)

@ranger_brian_new - Oh god, not again :P

@Barra - Glad you enjoyed it :D

@Skrael - Do not pay attention to the man behind the curtain ;)

Good luck with the second job. Bartending can be good money for part time.
Magravan edit delete reply
Thank you :) I don't think I got an interview though... Which is a shame, because despite not having a background as a bartender, I'm pretty confident I would have gotten the job if they gave me the interview ;)
Albear (Guest) edit delete reply
Im guessing Chad didnt mention he'd seen John before was because in the picture he's wearing glasses and when Chad saw John, he wasnt wearing glasses.

Like Supeman and Clark Kent, The glasses make him entirely unidentifyable :D
Magravan edit delete reply
Yeah, that's totally the reason lol :P Sure wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that he just got stuck in a trophy case for a while because of someone else screwing up...
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Chad is a Four after all. He is smart, despite his obvious brawn as well. too bad high intelligence doesn't decrease your douche factor as well.
Lunaris_Starchilde (Guest) edit delete reply
so... there is actual flavour in the TOGM, right? I mean, is there a difference between a "Pizza" and a "Hamburger Steak"?
PixieSingsBass edit delete reply
I'm thinking that Chad's planning to go harrass John's location out of Beth now. I sure hope he doesn't run into RZ alone.

Skrael, the wall art in the diner, that's yours, too. I recognised it from your gallery.
Skrael (I'm the artist)
@Lunaris I believe so, but I'm not 100% sure. Mag has the final word on that one. :P

@Pixie That is my art, for sure. :) Also, the wolf on Beth's wall is mine, as is the rose picture in Sylene's kitchen. I try and work my own pieces in, like I'm a famous artist in TOGM-land! It's all very exciting. I may need to open a gallery. *big grin*
Magravan edit delete reply
@Lunaris_Starchilde - Objectively? Not really, no. Subjectively, absolutely. :)

Initially the idea was that everyone kind of disliked the taste of general TOGM, but then June wanted to draw things like fries and burgers and stuff and the jokes were fun... :)

R.Z. was meant to be the exception, he was one of the few people outside of Ones who really, really enjoyed TOGM as brains and everything :)
Jamming edit delete reply
I said Zero three times cause that's how many bricks I needed for a full load, you know three bricks short of a full load?
Says Zed or get a Brick?
Its no fun when I have to explain it though, I'll go slow next time because your Canadian ;)
Magravan edit delete reply
I ... see... I guess if I pronounced it Zeero, it would have made more sense ;P
