Greetings from Dogpatch 15: Ricky

Oh gosh it’s a new character! I’m not tired of new characters yet so I hope to heck you aren’t either!


Weird Pets is THREE PAGES away from finishing! Donate here to help free the rest of the pages!

EMERALD CITY COMICON IS COMING UP SOON. I’ll be at BOOTH 1008! I’ll have BOOKS and TOTEBAGS and all my other usual goodies. Hooray!


I have worn SO MANY pairs of those gloves… and they have this horrible way of picking up every splinter or thorn anywhere nearby and shuffling it straight to the fingertips, where they rattle around loose and stab you occasionally… I swear they are all cursed. All of them.
On a more related note, I am loving Ivory’s body language. You know, that neck.

I love that Ricky has those work gloves . . . there must be about 5 1/2 pairs of those in my garage! (In some ways, gloves are worse than socks. When you lose a sock to the laundry machines, you know it’s over. But with gloves, it’s different. It once took me three years to find both gloves for a pair – I could never locate both at the same time!)

And Ivory made me do a double-take in panel. The arm-neck parallel is just funny. :)

In the Tumblr preview I thought Ricky might be Erin, are all Nixie’s and Nock’s blonde?
This page is full of good faces.

I just think it’s humerous seeing how Dogpatchites are reacting to Gabe like humans would react to them. XD

Some of them are probably busting their brains trying to figure out what Gabe is the “midform” of. There have to be at least one or two mythological creatures with four wings.

I don’t think Angels have a mid or human form. It Don’t look like he wears a medallion . . . but I could be wrong. :x

I think TB means that some people are assuming Gabe is another creature in midform rather than an angel, but aren’t sure what that creature might be.

Carry, It looks like you misunderstood TB. I think he meant that the folks of Dogpatch are making a backward leap of disbelief, trying to think of some “ordinary” mythical being with an angelic midform. It’s the same attitude that Lorne described humans as displaying.

That goat in the first panel is SO FREAKING ADORABLE. And that face of pure contentment as she gets her chinny-chin chin rubbed!

(I’m just guessing they’re mostly milk goats.)

Ivory may not give two craps about the goat pens, but the goats give plenty of craps. That’s why the work keeps… PILING UP.
