Well that's where I always see them nowadays; in waiting rooms and dental offices. I used to have a subscription when I was a kid, so I have fond memories of 'em. Plus, background wise where wasn't a lot else to suggest that they were in a waiting room, so I thought it'd be a good way of doing that.

And Jason likes the Timbertoes.

Oh no, a soap opera cliche! *Cue dramatic music* I wonder what will happen next? Will Mycroft remember who he is? Will Vanilla find out he's in the hosptial? Will Harley try to capture his heart? Will Mycroft's long-lost ex-wife who died in a plane crash in the Rocky Mountains come back in an exciting plot twist?

Getting carried away, sorry...nice work thus far!, really enjoying it!

Well... yeah, I gotta give it up for the the Timbertoes. (Early stuff, that is,
they sort of jumped the skark later on.) But Goofus & Gallant, urck. >_<

BTW, congratulations on 3 years of comic work. Keep on plugging :)

Happy (belated) Canada Day! This recent plot twist intrigues me. Greatly. I'm actually not sure what I want to happen, either. I feel so confused! So in other words, great job!

Well, the last thing you want to do is burn yourself out of something you love. Of course, sometimes comic artists bump down there schedule to fewer updates, keep it for a while and then end up dropping again anyways. Not that I'm saying that's what'll happen, but it's food for thought. Said comics probably were doomed anyway, but perhaps there is something to be said for pushing through times like that with the same goals to try and keep it important to you.

To be honest, I don't know. I've never had artistic skills enough to put out a comic (that I could stand) and blog writing isn't exactly that alluring to the public. Go with whatever you feel will best help you and your comic. If you feel it would be best to drop to two updates a week, go for it. I'm behind you either way and will still come back to read it. I mean, it more-or-less is a free service you provide and I'm just happy to have found it.

Ooh, Two face AND Harley Quinn, all rolled into one! Batman extravaganza.

I can't believe someone would hate Vanilla. She's like everyone's favorite. Everytime I introduce another female character folks seem to hate 'em in favour of her. ^^;

The comic had me in stitches. Then i watched the hard gay movies. I actually fell on the floor and rolled around. :lol: Those two combined with your comic was just to much for me.

I can't see the movies, my computer won't let me login to YouTube. It says shame on me for even wanting to see naughty things. O_O

(j/k)

BTW the comic had me incapacitated with laughter as well!

Oh don't worry, I would never link to something TOO naughty. No, Hard Gay is just another fine product from those wonderful Japanese.

And I'm very flattered that you found it funny.

Today's wasn't bad either. One would almost begin to think Mycroft
was relishing the ability to freak out landlords that way.

It's alive, ALIVE!

*ahem* 'scuse me. Mycroft used to be in the drama club in high school (omg art nerd), so he can actually be a fairly good actor at times. That's my pulled-out-of-my-ass answer, he's acting. Sometimes it's a lot easier to be certain things when you're pretending to be someone else... such as when he wore the mask and punched out that punk rabbit guy I still haven't named.

...Huh?

Hello!
Just a minor question: According to the dates of the e-mails Mycroft would have been in amnesia-like-state for about two months... If so, that could explain why Mycroft's dislocated shoulder is better then.

The dates of the emails are just the dates of the day before they went up. There is no exact time-flow in the comic, as each chapter takes like half to a full year to tell. So I don't think Mycroft has been amnesic for a few months; more like a couple of weeks tops.

The emails are more filler than actual story pieces. But I'm rather flattered folks are looking into this so deeply.
