Hello, Goodbye 22: This is Starting To Look Familiar

Hey do you remember that critter from almost three years ago? Webcomics time is a strange thing!

I hope all my buddies in the States enjoyed their Independence Day! I am full of bratwurst AS ANY AMERICAN SHOULD BE.

Stanley girl?


Perhaps she was named before accurate determination of her sex could be made – like the cat called Ben Hur: “Well, we named her Ben, but then she had kittens.” Or perhaps she was named after her father, like Anne Rice was (she was born Howard Allen O’Brien, and later married Stanley Rice – well, there you go!). >:=)> I suppose she could have been named after Stanley Matthews, the legendary England football player, or after Henry Morton “Doctor Livingstone, I presume?” Stanley.


I like how he’s all cool, even though that ness-monster looks like she’s about to eat his face for not bringing snacks.


Maybe she was found near Stanley. I think ive heard of a place called stanley here in england so y’know it could be that


…technically it’s about 2 and a half years. But that’s still pretty mind boggling. I’ve been following this comic for a long time, it seems. xD

Aww, poor Lorne. He needs to stop being all melodramatic. It’s turning the whole of the Avalon melancholy. And I shall assume ol’ Jim will come running after him to make sure he’s alright. c:

What kind of creature is Stanley girl? I immediately assumed lochness, but with you I never know. :’D


And thus the we come full circle. The next page is probably going to be similar to the first page of ‘Handshakes’ with Jim and Lorne sitting by the water together.


Please start using ‘Glargle’ more often. It is pretty much the best comic soundifier word-thing there is.

What’s that called? When you write in the comic the sound something is making?


I know the feeling of weird time gaps. As a roleplayer on a forum-based site, it happens quite a lot (recently it took 1 year to get through about a day)

As for the comic, I can’t believe that I’ve been following this for that long! I absolutely love this comic and can’t wait to see where it goes next (and who won the fight).

    patmandx:

    So I’ve recently REALLY gotten into Kory Bing’s Skin Deep (check it out), a story about mythical creatures hiding in human society. Here’s a few pictures I’ve drawn of people I know (most of which don’t actually read the comic, so they’re amazingly good sports).

    I’ve got to hand it Ms. Bing, she’s really good at thinking up believable characters and making interesting settings cause I’ve pretty much been absorbed in drawing stuff based on the comic now.

    I’m currently trying very, very hard to not write a full fledged fan-comic about these people I’ve drawn (or as I like to call it, pulling a Loftlocked).

    But yeah, what do you guys think?

    Cool fan characters!!
