Hey hey everyone, sorry if you weren't impressed with this one. It didn't have much of a punchline, but it did advance the storyline a little bit.

Just so people are aware, this is the last update before the contest for the TOGM T-shirt closes, so if you're not one of the 11 people that have sent an email and want a free T-shirt (And are willing / allowed to provide your address), email TOGMshirt (@) gmail (.) com but obviously without the little things designed to break spambots.

I just wanted to say thank you again to all of the people who are voting for us, the support is really appreciated.

Oh, in other news, barring horrendous weather, I'm going to be going to Canada's Wonderland sometime this week. Our youngest has never been there, and I thought it would be a nice way to finish out the summer.

Did any of our readers go to FanExpo Canada? I was debating on it, but a really horrendous experience last year put me off... I'm wondering if it was better this year... It seems weird that there are almost no conventions at a reasonable price for being vendors in our general area (that I am aware of). Unfortunately, not really having much to sell doesn't help, but I would love to get out there and try to let people know about the comic. If you happen to know of any cheap conventions that would have us in and around Toronto, let me know :D

And on that note, have a great week everyone!

Eh, not everything has to have a punchline, I like comics with storyline just as much, sides, Phantom' guys in the 3rd panel are funny enough.

Skrael, if you ever, ever, ever, ever, ever put yourself down again I will fly to Canada and pelt you with bricks.
This is an excellent update >:o

@ ModelS- I thought it was Punny enough as is.

Are those different Sack Express "drivers"? Because the ones who took Sylene were Twos and these are Threes.
Also, why is R.Z. incapable of saying "dunno" properly? Is this a quirk of "real R.Z."?

@model S - Terrible puns are the way to go.. :)

@Thisguy - I know, I just am trying not to lose the lighter side of the comic... It's one of those things where it started out as a joke-y, slice of life (but with a twist) and now it's getting into this whole convoluted story... I'm afraid of losing the stuff I enjoyed writing about in the first place, and striving for a joke tends to help me keep that.

@MatthewJA - I hope you have lots of frequent flyer miles saved up...

@model S - Sexcellent is a word that is too good to be wasted here.

@T.Gatto - lol ;) I like the pun :D

@model S - Chisel meet sledgehammer :P

@T.Gatto - Oh god.. Next we'll have to get you sunglasses...

@aok666 - They were Threes. Their text was in SundayComics BB instead of Mouth Breather, even though they sound smarter here... Maybe they were higher on the food chain of the one who ate Thomas ;)

And I think I used I-unno to show that R.Z. wasn't really engaged in the conversation... I can't think of the real R.Z. using it... Unfortunately, he's become far more clever in the time since we started the comic, so it's not as easy to get inspiration for him anymore ;)

Chisel meet sledgehammer? i'm sorry... i.. don't think i've ever heard that turn of phrase before? is that like saying "pot, meet kettle"? or some refrence to hurting me with a sledge hammer cause i made a terrible, terrible joke? cause if it's the second, please aim for my right hand, i'm trying to get it fixed but no cash and insurance won't pay for it.

Wait, are you saying I have to make multiple flights? That's terrible D:
Magravan edit delete reply
@moizmad - I used to think that she'd hate me for making her draw more cars, but it seems to be something she's okay with... :O

@model S - A chisel is for delicate work, a sledgehammer is for mass destruction.. I don't know if it is a saying or turn of phrase, but it basically means that you went for the overkill :)

If you don't mind me asking, what's wrong with your right hand?

@GuestJA - Multiple flights daily :)

I went to a local store, with my wife, which sells lots of organic, locally produced, and specialty goods. They were selling Cricket Chips, made with real crickets (Barbecue, Chocolate dipped, and ranch were 3 flavors). On the package it said "Crickets, The Other Green Meat" (YUCK).

I think I'd rather eat your TOGM.

It was a few strips back that I posted last about my friend whom had to wear green colored glasses; I found some info about it.
"Well, there are two parts to our vision - the fast, inaccurate peripheral vision and the slow, focused central vision. When we read, the fast vision jumps to the next part and then the slow vision reads it. Some people's brains are sensitive to certain wavelengths of light and the two parts of their vision get out of sync", Peter explained, "Your brain works very hard to compensate for this, but it's very likely you don't remember too much of what you read and have to re-read a lot".

It's a form of dyslexia. There, ya'll learned something new for the day :)

a few years ago i broke it in a massive rage, i... punched a vending machime cause it took my money and turned off... i was not having a good day. well the doctor that "fixed" it was rather incompetant, didn't set the bone or any of that just put it in a cast and demanded hundreds of thousands of dollars for something i could have done at home. well because of that my pinky bends inwards, it's possible to reset the bone (hurts like hell) but my insurance won't comer it since it's not REQUIRED for my hand to function properly.

Think the buddy with glass is going to get his brains eaten. Actually can zombies even eat zombie brains???
Magravan edit delete reply
@T.Gatto - The Other Green Meat.. That's pretty clever :D I dunno if I'd eat it, but Ranch is pretty awesome in general...

@Barbaric Bog - Uhm... I think that eating TOGM as a non-zombie would be .. well, probably the precursor to projectile vomit in my case.. but I don't know if I would call it veggie cannibalism :)

@Asheswillfall - That's really interesting, thank you for not only pointing out the dyslexia part, but also including the general description :) I feel like I've learned my something new for the day :D

@model S - Wow... I'm guessing that the pop wasn't worth that... I do know how frustrating it can be when you're reaaaaallly thirsty and the machine eats your last coins though... :/ Fortunately, I was able to stop myself before I wrecked myself (and possibly my job) on the machine.

I ended up getting my money back eventually, but I think that was the most unpleasant tap water I ever drank that day..

@Hornet - Any damage to the zombie's cranium would result in the death of the zombie... And while they aren't going to get anything useful out of it, starving zombies don't realize any better and will attack anyway... But usually that's only REALLY hungry Ones.

it wasn't that alone that made me punch it, it was just a really crappy day and that just made me snap. after a bit i met up with my friends and held up my hand accompanied by the question "hey umh dones this look broken to you?"

i was met with "holy hell why aren't you screaming in pain or at a hospital" i replied "well it doesn't hurt so meh."

When it looks like it got stuck in a blender, it's never a good sign :)
