Hello hello!

I hope that people aren't turned off by Sylene's text spam in Panel 2 or 3... I wanted to convey that she was speaking really fast, and set up John's stunned comment in response to feeling overwhelmed.. Let me know if it works, I guess... She's probably not going to do that very often (and will be disappearing for a while too) so if you did find it annoying, I guess we'll have a breather for a while.

Anyone notice the almost houdini-like name drop there? Yeah, I looked over at June again and said "Did we ever put her name in the comic?" She claimed Deja vu, I said "No, this actually happened before.. Twice."

By the time they show up, I've tended to have them written for quite a while, and their name is so common in my mind that I forget that no one else knows.. (unless you read the comments for the Sylene preview image, I guess.. But since we might change that later on to remove them from the general continuity, best to name drop it here :)

I think that this one helps to show Sylene's unpleasant side. It's mostly for show, but there you have it. Beth looked pretty pissed, which is a good set up for next Monday's comic. John looks pretty stunned too...

Anyways, I hope that everyone enjoys this one.. I enjoyed it, so hopefully you guys do too. Even though I had to go back after it was 'done' and add in the music notes.

If you're a periodic checker, we've got a caption contest going on the previous image (a piece of fan art with no words!), and we're going to put up a piece of Fan Art from Alicia on Saturday.

Enjoy the rest of the week, and we'll see you on Saturday!

I think this one is really funny.
Also for a minute I thought that June was asking John to get "into her sweater" as in some veiled sexual thing, lol...
You know...
<puts on low, sultry voice>
"Maybe, could you wear -my- sweater?"

Yeah... there's something going on here.

PS: I like June, she's exactly what TOGM needed.

@Ferix - Glad to hear it, thanks for the comment ;)

@Guy Incognito - I'm glad you enjoy her, she's fun to write :)

@Barrahir - Good stuff ;) I'm happy people weren't put off by it, and thenk you.

@Effigy - I think June is exactly what this comic needed too haha :D And if it -were- June? Yes, it would totally have been innuendo ;) As for Sylene, I'm glad she's joined us as well :)

@Viper - I'm glad :) I was hoping that people would go for it, but there's always that concern that people are going to get put off by something like that. Thanks for enjoying it :D There are times that I want to smack John upside the head too... I think that he presents a good case next Thursday though :)

@June - There are some similarities there, I have to say ;)

Ah, yeah... awkward...
Anyways, never enough Junes, especially in January...
But yes, Sylene is awesome...

In one comic, you have managed to make me utterly despise Sylene. The kind of hate I'm trying to foster with one of my characters.

Which one of you writes this again? Because you rock.
Barrahir edit delete reply
Rofl Effigy xD If the comic made me laugh, its nothing compared to the hilarity of your misinterpretations :D
Magravan edit delete reply
@Effigy_Power - One June's enough to keep me warm all year long ;)

@Kayzan - I'm the writer, and thank you :) What specifically did you despise? Hopefully you despise her for the reasons that I wrote, and not a completely different one ;)

@Barrahir - My comments page is always better for the inclusion of Effigy, misinterpretation or not ;)
Barrahir edit delete reply
Just in case people don't look a page back, Effigy won the caption contest. GJ!

I am on a roll in every direction here. ^_^

Speaking of your winning everything, when's the new layout going up at RPGeneric?

By the way, the expressions in here are probably the best this comic had at the time. John's desperate look at the "delicious" line, confusion at the quicktalking, the "...oops?" look when Beth reminds him...Beth's annoyance, concern, disgust, and facepalming...everything.
