Well, I didn't have time to make comics this week, so I painted. Watercolor, to be exact. I apologize if this isn't how you visualized the coloring some things—Hugh's sweater is purple, Carl's a redhead and all that. I can forgive you if you were imagining it as a utopia where all redheads have been ethnically cleansed. That's a future we can all get behind.

I like how it came out, mostly. That background is a little too 'angry mustard' for my tastes, and Andromeda's shirt is, canonically, a little less aggressively kiwi. But overall, I give it a 6/10. I'll see you all next week for a brand new comic.

Always remember proper first aid, in case of an emergency:

If the bone is broken, immediately drink a glass of milk. Calcium, mm-mm.

If you are bleeding profusely, try natural remedies, like rubbing small twigs and raccoon scat in the wound. Just like the Native Americans did.

If you learn that you are in the early stages of a fatal disease such as Malaria, try believing in yourself. If it doesn't work, you didn't believe in yourself enough.

For third degree burns or gunshot wounds, try herbal tea. Really. You'd be surprised.

This is oddly topical, it being July and all. I'd like some grenades for fireworks, cause what's more American than blowing things up? For the next fourth of July, I want to explode a grenade, while eating a hot dog, voting, watching a baseball game, saluting the American flag and punching a Russian. Then I'd probably get arrested for the grenade thing and assaulting a Russian person, but the real reason would be for being too patriotic. COMMIES.

What happened to the days when city buses had massive snack bars, and water beds, and home entertainment systems with Kindergarten Cop on DVD? I'll tell you: never, because I made all of that up, right now. However, I don't see why our government can't institute that. They should just sell most of the buses and spend all of the money on one enormous, super deluxe bus, with sweet flame decals and Speed Racer-esque car superpowers, like those car stilts or the submarine mode or that weird android homing pigeon one. Or just cut out the middleman entirely and launch people from place to place through Wile E. Coyote catapults. Why hasn't the government done this? I can't tell you; I don't think anyone could. Thanks, OBAMA.

It sure is convenient that hobos take on descriptive monikers like that. You need not wonder what to expect from a fellow named 'Armpit Steve'.*

*Pro Tip: Expect armpits of some kind.

I love that moustache so much. if I could grow facial hair, I don't think there would be any doubts that that would be what I would wear. That, or I would die my hair green, grow it until it went entirely over my body, and then pretend to be an overly large chia pet. And I would pose in the corner in a pot in my cover story guy's house, and then the guy would bring his house guests over and say "You like my giant chia pet? I got it off eBay," and then I would jump out at them and they'd scream, and then we'd all have a good laugh.

In hindsight, I wonder why they're all sitting on one side of the table, assumedly quite uncomfortably crushed together, facing coincidentally exactly where the 'camera' is facing them. Perhaps they're all watching something interesting out the window. Perhaps a costumed bear is doing tricks off-screen, and that's why they're interested. You know, like at the circus. I don't know how a bear would get in there though. Perhaps a teleporting bear. THAT'S CANON NOW

This is our first comic with a credit line, and doesn't it look pretty! I'm going to be replacing all previous comics with ones with that credit line, so prepare yourselves. That's all for today, I'm afraid. Shalom, my friends, and Biz Shpeter!

If I may say so myself, the art in this comic is getting pretty consistent! Look how similar that poster looks in panels 1, 2 and 4! Nah, I'm punking you, I totally cut and pasted it.

In other news, this is a double update, so click that 'previous' button to read the comic that comes before this!


Fc16e280943

Woohoo, update! They're in an ambulance in the last panel, by the way, in case you can't tell. I didn't really know what to draw in the background there to tip you off to it being an ambulance. I originally had a sign that said something like 'this is an ambulance' but that seemed a little on the nose. I suppose if you didn't know it was an ambulance you'd assume it's a hospital room, which would work just as well. So never mind, like one's life or a wad of play-doh, that last panel can be anything you want it to be.

P.S. After last week's debacle of having to design an entire house for the background, they're facing the other side of the street now. So there's only a lamppost and some bushes. Do lampposts still exist, even? Well, they do in this town, anyway.

In case you think I messed up and updated an hour late, you're wrong. My clock says, right there, 9:57. So that's, like, three minutes early. If your clock says something else, it must be a time...difference. You know, time zones and stuff.

On a side note, it took me like an hour to draw Hugh's house and that ambulance in the background, jeez! Look at that! It has an odd two-dimensional quality to it, though, like Hugh is living in some sort of a space-warp. That's a thing, and it's canonical now.

Day late again. I'm buying a calendar though. On the bright side, you get two comics in one day! Be sure to go over to Body in the Foyer to see the other one. The button's up there, on the top bar. Case you're interested. Just an idea. You can click on it by moving your finger on your little computer pad up there, and then pressing down. Or use your mouse and/or mouse button. Again, just a suggestion. It's really good today.

P.S., yes, that's a roman column Carl's touching in panel 1. Andromeda has roman columns in her house. That's to emphasize the richness.

Finally! I can draw something other than a window and that picture on JJ's wall. It was getting tiring. On the other hand, more work for me. I can't win, honestly.

On another note, look at that tree through the window in the last panel there. Good God. That's practically a Monet, right there.



Fc8e280942

Ah! Finally. It took a while to get this up because I had to erase a panel of dialogue and had to rewrite it...Ehh, what do you care? It's up now. Lucky you. Hey, did you notice that JJ's face seems to be an amorphous, shifting entity, the way it changes drastically through the 4 panels? The only conclusion I can draw from this is that JJ is some sort of shapeshifting alien, sent to Earth to study humankind while replicating their speech patterns and face shape in order to blend in. So, yeah, that's canon now.
