Rachel's idea is the best idea. I will be mildly disappointed if Severian doesn't "sucker-punch" someone at some point and make a dumb joke about it.

Word of advice: if you put quotation marks in your alt-text, you need to code the character instead of just typing it, because otherwise the code will think that's where you mean to end the alt-text.

Ahhhhh no that's just me being dumb and forgetting. xD It should be fixed now, thanks for the heads-up!

*GASP* The horror!
Comment by Riverfox237
First: *cracking up laughing at Tareth's response to the "you heard that" line*
Second: *DYING with laughter at the hilariously terrible pun in the vote incentive*
OH, IF ONLY THERE WERE SOME CONVENIENT PEOPLE WITH POWERS OF SOME KIND WHO DON'T HATE JONAN'S GUTS YET AND HAPPEN TO BE FREE TO TRAVEL IN ANY DIRECTION. AND WHO NEED A FAVOR. AND THUS COULD BE ASKED A FAVOR IN RETURN. BUT WHERE WOULD WE FIND SUCH A PERSON(S)?
I love Tareth's face in panel 6. And UGH, I need to steal your method for drawing backgrounds in perspective! Like panel 4; I need to be able to draw far-off shots like that, but I am freakin' TERRIBLE at drawing backgrounds at weird angles! Although it doesn't help that half the time lately I am drawing them OUTSIDE, which somehow manages to be worse.
ANYWAY, my rambling aside, great job on this page! =D *eagerly awaiting the moment when Jonan has to eat humble pie and ask for help from you-know-who*

I don't think Jonan is in a position to partake in even that kind of pie. XD

Okay this comment is also wonderful because I enjoyed the all-caps'd summary way too much. xD
but omg thank you very much! Someday I will create a tutorial on the photoshop tricks I use to do my backgrounds. It will be called "Backgrounds in Perspective (by a Lazy Person Who Hates Rulers)"
posted at 9:51am on November 6th, 2012
I would so use that! Although I'll have to juryrig it to work with Paint.net, because I am poor and Photoshop costs monies.

I just become so gleeful when I imagine the frustration of Jonan constantly being interrupted when he's trying to write down his thoughts. Sort of like... "Shut up and let me finish!" except on paper. XD

Trying to write to someone who is talking is proooooooobably the most frustrating way to communicate.
...other than like
charades I guess

You need to draw Jonan trying to communicate via charades now. It needs to be done. Because.
posted at 6:11pm on November 6th, 2012
Honestly, knowing that Jonan's paired with a deaf girl and an easily-distracted shapeshifter who may or may not actually be able to read (based on the debates going on in previous comment threads)...
I dunno man. Give it a few pages and it's bound to happen in comic-canon. xDDDD
posted at 6:13pm on November 6th, 2012
I had to look up what charades meant, but it was totally worth it. I want to see Jonan getting a hand cramp and resorting to either extremely exaggerated hand gestures or actually getting up and acting out a long and complicated sentence. It would make me the happiest Jack in the internet.

I really like the TNH-style vote incentives and random asides. =D

The thing I most like about the vote incentive is the idea that you are now actually trying to come up with *something* for vote incentives. Which obviously carries the prospect of little extra comics, which is of course a FANTASTIC thing always C:
On a side note, I still wonder how Jonan would survive for any greater amount of time without starving/dehydrating to death. .. wait, ...could Sev... Nah, I'm sure it's not gonna be that easy. But still, couldn't he shape shift Jonan into something? Something with an... orifice?

Have you thought about doing the same thing with the vote incentives that you did with TNH? Bringing them back after two months? Because I LOVE the little extra asides and want to read them over and over again. Especially if they continue in the trend they've had recently.
posted at 6:52pm on November 8th, 2012
I already do! Go back to any comic from two months ago, and there's a link to the old incentive in the little artist's comments section. :") But ahhhhh thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying the silly little doodle-comics; I really like doing them. xD

Ah, wouldn't the currently empty and inactive "Extras" section be a frabjous place for such things? Just sayin' ;) </nag>
posted at 8:01am on November 18th, 2012
Naw, that'd be weird because then there'd be no way to connect them with the comic they originally went with. I prefer to keep them in the archives. The extras section has a purpose (filler comics, for example) I just need to actually set it up. xD
