Poor guy, he gets no respect... I hope you guys had a great weekend :) I'm hoping my new computer will be coming in this week so I can go learn a programming language again and make something entertaining... I definitely have the programming bug again :D

Is anyone noticing the the transitions are happening more frequently now? I was trying to help my pacing by switching my scenes a little faster as we get closer to the climax of this portion. I know that 150 visits quite a few different scenes...

This scene is important for reasons that you may or may not have realized, but I hope that when it becomes apparent, that people will agree that the motivation was there.

That's the thing about this whole story... I think that people have put faith into things making sense, and I hope that when it comes time to come through on that faith, that I manage to not bungle it too badly. As the writer, these things are important to me, and if I fail, it isn't because I wasn't aware or didn't care.. It's just that I'm not good enough yet :)

We're not quite in the top 100 on the voting, but we're higher than we usually are. Thank you to everyone for the support! Vote here! If you want to support us and have 3 updates a week in May, help us reach the top 100!

Well it's about time to update (I had some issues with stray pixels messing with the file today, so I'm running late despite starting early...) so I'll call this an Author's note! You guys have a great week, and we'll see you on Thursday!

You're being too hard on yourself. It's a lot of art and it came out really well!

I'm really diggin' the way Beth's hair curls up like in panel 3, but what really has me amused is Chad's gradual progression into a far more menacing character (visually). :D Keep it up guys!

Beth looks so pretty in panel 3! I think that you just don't like the poses in some panels. The drawing is fine, the poses are awkward. If you shifted the angles slightly you would have been happier with the effect, Skrael.

It has come into my concern that I don't trust Chad's body. If Robert has installed it with control mechanisms, who's to say he hasn't put other things in there, like a bug, a coffee machine or even a seat warmer..

@Kevin - It certain was!

@DreamSanguine - I enjoyed the contrast between him and Alexander this time around :)

@greengirl77 - That's my favourite one of Beth in this comic :)

@MatthewJA - Darn right!

@the_brigand - That Robert certainly is a crafty one.. You never know when you're going to need a cup of "Coffee" :)

You know you are first in all time favorite comics, right ahead of mushroom go, you are not doing that bad. not bad at all in fact.

Earlier they called beth an operative.
So perhaps beth is supposed to be working with them?
If so she's really broken the rules.
Magravan edit delete reply
@Spinnerlink - We've been at this a lot longer than Mushroom Go :) And he'll pass us soon enough, don't worry ;)

@snoog - They did? I should find that again and see what I meant...

I think Skrael is too hard on herself as well. Then again, I can be guilty of the same thing, working a long time on a strip only to be unhappy with the results.
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Of course!

@Unka John - I think it's an creative thing... Paraphrasing someone: "Art is never done, just abandoned."

my laptop's battery fried. haha. june, your art is great. stop being so hard on yourself, you're always great, alot of the people i show the comic to compliment the art then wonder why i'm obssessed with beth.... then notice she's a redhead.
