Wow, things have been buuusy for us... I think that with Summer coming, it'll settle down somewhat, and I'm looking forward to some of the cool things that the kids will be doing this summer.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to one of our friends who reads the comic who not only got me a copy of the Last Night on Earth expansion that was Out of Print, but also made up some really awesome character cards for some of the TOGM crew...

I was impressed with the character cards, and would have been extremely happy with just that, but receiving a gift that he really didn't have to give me, of something that I REALLY wanted, and was prepared to wait months for in order to get... It was just awesome... Thank you so much!

With that done, I just wanted to say that this was another one that took me forever to write, and I know that the 187 of Chad's chip is going to come back and bite me in the butt at some point...

I wasn't sure if we conveyed the sense that Alexander appeared defeated before, so Chad was less on guard about it... Obviously Alexander is not as accepting of this situation as he has led them to believe...

I got to use my super cool brand new drawing manikins for some of these! They are super nifty! Except that they don't quite bend as much as I want them to. But otherwise, SCORE!

In other news, a good friend, Chris made James some really neat custom charecter cards for the game Last Night on Earth! We scanned them and wish to share them with you all!

My new Avatar is from Teh-Lady-Randomness of Daily Doodle for a Mafia forum game that I participated in. This is me winning... right up until I got shot. I achieved my win condition, but went down with the ship when the Godfather started offing everyone... :)

Great job guys. Also, congratulations on your manikins :)

This all looks awesome - Chad's face in the third, 'xander's in the final, the roll - all of it!

It looks like Karma's about to finally catch up with Chad.
Another fantastic strip, as always!

Ooooh, those cards are so cool! :D

I have a climbing respect for Alexander. That roll was awesome. :O

Alex looks so cool in that last panel. Also, like what he says in the first panel, reminds me of the abominations in World of warcraft who literally have an arm coming out of their back, holding some sort of sharp weapon. I wonder if these zombie bodies come with any other cool features, like a jet pack! or an arm cannon- wait, I'm thinking androids...

Unexpected, Isn't Alex supposed to be a 2? In any case I think he's being seriously underestimated. Good show!

Nice touch, Alex.
I knew you'd screw Chad :)

Magravan: "@Muchacho NL - Robert's font (It is exclusively his, no one else has or will ever use it) is meant to reflect a powerful voice" - Kinda like Earl Lee Jones?

And so the plot thickens! :)

As the arist who has very little to do with plot, I really enjoyed how Magravan wrote and executed the script today. I enjoyed Alexander's defiance, and look forward to seeing what he will do next!

@greengirl77 - I know! They were such a treat to get :D

@Jrade - I'm glad you liked it :D

@Nash - I don't know, I think he kind of has a point... Alexander was basically feeding him to the sharks in order to try to make this deal go ahead.. ;)

@Onecanofsprite - Technically we all died :D Even Silver Streak went down as the world collapsed :D

@model S - This is a response. I am making it.

A ninjombie would have made it out without scuffing up his outfit :)

@MatthewJA - Well, I'm using TLR's drawing as an avatar for a while ;) Doesn't necessarily mean it's a thing...

@Kristy - It's funny, because I hadn't even originally conceived Alexander in an active role... He was just supposed to be a way to show that Robert had become more brutal in his efforts...

@Thisguy - You never know what you can pack into a TOGM Brand body :D

@T.Gatto - No, I don't think I've explicitly stated what level Alexander is, but I think that the fact that he's been running the PSOs for a long while and he doesn't use the Mouthbreather font suggests that he's at least a 3 ;)

@Muchacho NL - Do you mean James Earl Jones? I don't know if that's exactly the voice I hear from him, but in a sense, yes. Definitely has good projection and strong control over his voice.

@jordanch68 - It wasn't thick enough, apparently :)

@Skrael - In order to live up to that expectation, I will ... completely blank on what to write, and then just do something and hope for the best :D

An ad for this very comic has appeared at the top of the page. How does THAT work out?
PS loving the comic, and sorry I haven't commented before. (I have to minimise commenting because I tend to waffle on a lot... as you might have guessed.)

Lupine the Third!
Alex looks like the Wolf.

Although I normally avoid referring to Beth as a sexual object - I have to say - Hypnojiggle is teh Awesome!
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
MAG! i'm shocked and appaled, how could you respond like that! -offended-

XD but yea. great work, can't wait for thursday.

side note: ALICE: Madness Returns is made entirely out of "sexy" "awesome" and "HOLY CRAP WHAT THE HELL"

@MatthewJA - People aren't always clenching their fist, you know?!

@aok666 - It means that no one is bidding on the space :) Thank you for commenting, it's appreciated :D

@T. Gatto - I have no idea what that means :D

@the_bringad - :D

@model S - I liked the original concept of Alice, but I didn't really get into the game...

Their is a Japanese animated cartoon, with several incarnations, that I have seen dubbed in America as; Lupine III; Rupine III; Lupine the Third; and Tales of the Wolf etc...

It's about a third generation Master Thief who tours the world seeking fame and fortune, with a Samurai and a weapon's master. He runs from the law (inspector Zenegata from Interpol) and competes with his Girlfriend (Fugico, also a master thief). Great Stuff!

I hope I didn't butcher the spelling too bad.

Watch "Castle of Cagliostro" if you get the chance.

Alex bears a striking resemblance to him in a few frames.

Like being put back in the trophy case after finally being freed from it would be something he'd just ACCEPT.

I really should do more than occasionally skim other people's comments so I don't repeat myself like a dumba** but I want to see what happens next in the story too darn much!
