Hey everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!!

So obviously Sylene is missing the tactical advantage that the Phantom has discovered... With access to someone who knew about the enhancements, they might be able to produce their own, instead of relying on raiding Robert's facilities and such...

Not much else to say.. This might be uploaded early or late for you, since we just had Spring forward. I hate DST... It makes scheduling things on the internet difficult because not everyone does it.

In other news, we finally caught up on Dexter. I think Season 5 was my favourite so far! Lumen was a great character, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I think Julia Stiles is adorable. (Okay, it does a little bit..) :D

Seeing Jonny Lee Miller from Hackers in the role he played was pretty awesome too! So yeah, great season. If you enjoy Dexter but haven't gotten there yet, it's worth slogging through some of the less interesting arcs for the last two seasons, which were both done brilliantly. I'm still in awe of John Lithgow's performance last season... He certainly is a fantastic actor :D

In other news, I will be uploading a new fan art soon! Have a great week everyone!

(June might be coming to bed early with me, which means her comment probably wont be up until tomorrow, if she writes one at all.)

I liked how my hands came out on this one. Used plenty of references.

Panel 4 made me lol every few minutes while drawing it.

Having a penis again. Truly a cause for revolution.

Well now we know what's on her mind.

Maaaaaaan these rebel guys really want penises.

In we males the lower head always does the thinking for us, even when we sleep. Think how much smarter The Phantom would be. All that without that blood pressure problem, oxygen cut off to one brain or the other. We would be super-geniuses!!!
Magravan edit delete reply
@Kristy - I tried to avoid listing any spoilers... I really wanted to gush about it and how much I enjoyed it...

As for the last panel, June was giggling to herself the whole time she was drawing it :)

@DensetsuEX - I think that she might completely be missing the entire point of the Phantom.... Either that or secretly knowing him better than he knows himself... :D

@MatthewJA - He certainly does... But I think that it's more her obsession than his... She's just projecting :D

@Jamming - So you're saying that if we want to becoming a race of super intelligent beings, we should just go around castrating everyone? .... Who needs a Utopian society anyway? *coughs*

i think sylene is a little obssessed with wang, perhaps that's how she's dealing with the trauma of almost being raped then turned into a zombie. also "zombie blowjob" hahaha

Drawing hands is probably one of the hardest parts of drawing.

Eyes on the prize, Sylene.

If I wouldn't have to explain myself I would LOL right now.

I've just noticed Skrael is drawing Sylene's lips with a closed line as opposed to the open line effect she was using before. You see, it takes a woman to notice these things! Plus is it her new hair-do that's making her
look a little plumper?
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Funny you mentioned that, Mo. I had you in mind when I decided to start drawing closed-lined lips. I recalled your question as to why I did it a few months ago. Do you think that this way is an improvement?
idd (Guest) edit delete reply
Perhaps she was just wrung out before. I mean she is there replacing her tears. Those water works have to come from someplace and I wouldn't expect zombies to be all into soaking it up like a sponge.

Question though, if Chad, a four, remembers his pre-enlightenment stuff, why doesn't Sylene remember the bunker and her ex-BF, unless like other weird scientists, she didn't know he liked her. Then when she was converted he popped himself. Of course I get the disturbing impression from what we have seen that Sylene is smarter as a zombie.

Y'know, it occurred to me that without functional genitalia, world domination might seem like the only reasonable compensation.
Magravan edit delete reply
@redder - He's just trying to plan a reasonable revolution, and she keeps taking him off track!

@model S - She certainly is... :)

@DSW - My stickman's hands were just circles, so I don't follow you. :P

@Johnny Whoa - She certainly gives the impression that she'd enjoy that :)

@the_brigand - I'm glad you enjoyed it :D

@moizmad - I had no idea about the lips, so you're probably right ;) As for being plumper, no. It's me telling June that she's making Sylene too skinny lately :)

Just because Beth is a beanpole doesn't mean they all have to be!

@idd - Oh, are people under the mistaken impression that camera girl was Sylene? I skimmed your message when I read it the first time and was confused :) Camera girl is definitely NOT Sylene..

I'd intended to get to her within the next little while, but again, the story has gotten away from me, and I'm stuck writing about things that are happening in this one area... One of these days I'll figure out how to tell a good story and things will vastly improve... I hope!

@Wit - I can just picture that scene... "Why are you doing this?! We had a Utopia here and you've destroyed it.. For what?!"
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
Is it just me or is there a strange brown 'beam' in panel three. I thought at first it was a cubboard door blocking the head but it's too long.
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
i think that's the best "this is sparta" parody i've ever seen done mag. ^^
redder edit delete reply
my revoloution sounds ore inportant...but thats just me :p and i was under the impression that camera girl was sylene just looking different becuse of the restoration work beth did
Jamming edit delete reply
@ Magravan - You always go to the worst possibility. I was thinking that High Blood Pressure increases your intelligence, till you blow your cortex or stroke out.
Magravan edit delete reply
@Guest - You can criticize with a real name ;D And it is the cupboard door, even if it looks too long :)

@model S - Haha, it would make for a funny animation :D

@redder - Camera girl does look different because of restoration work that Beth did, but it's definitely not Sylene...

@Jamming - I'm not sure which is worse, castration or blown cortex :D
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
Was the alt-text in reference to the people pointing out how she had earned respect? ;)
Magravan edit delete reply
Yes and no. I put the scene in to show that Phantom was getting a grudging respect for her. Obviously some readers pointed it out... The alt-text refers to the fact that she blew that respect with her comments today :D
