Hello Goodbye 3: Pear Shaped

Happy Valentine’s Day! I made you a Valentine!

I hope you like exposition, because this whole seen is just full of Ike word vomiting all over the place. I figure you guys have been nice and patient with me never telling y’all anything, so I’ll reward you with a little bit of straight-up infodumping. Congrats! You earned it, kids!

Also, if you follow my twitter, you’ll have heard about this already, but I have teamed up with Sfé Monster to bring you a new comic site! It’s called Monster Bones!

Monster Bones will be a bunch of shorter comics written and designed by Sfé Monster and drawn by me! The first comic is from a story called Weird Pets, and if you like Skin Deep I think you’ll like Weird Pets a lot! We’re releasing each comic using the Ransom method, which means we put up a ransom for it, people donate towards it’s release, and when the ransom is paid it will be released for EVERYBODY to read! We’re already over halfway to our goal for the first comic! Super exciting!

And for our wonderful donators, you will all get some nice goodies from us as a “thank you” for your help! Watch the Monster Bones blog for more info on that as soon as we get our crap together and figure out exactly what your rewards should be. But you will have donation rewards!


Yay for info dumping… of stuff I already knew :( but I love it all anyway. I hope the info dumping continues next week.
Ps. I super love the Valentine you made, as I was waiting for it to load I kept thinking ‘please be Jon, please be Jon, please be Jon.’ and it was.

Possible things the Satyr said:

“Wanna see how “gruff” we can get together?”

“Bet that tail would wag easier if freed from those pants.”

“Wanna ram?”

“You’re making my horns tingle, luv. Especially this- Owww!”

Whatever he said or did, she didn’t find it amusing. Still, that’s what he gets for trying it on in a venue with amplified music. You can’t really impress her with the depth and timbre of your bark if you’re being drowned out by the bass, and many of the other cervine dating strategies would get you ejected or barred. Then again, so would the promised off-screen satyr punch-up. Sigh… satyrs. The palm-catcher looks like he’s old enough to know better, too.

Again, no problem with the exposition. Exposition is good. Exposition is fun. May those who rail at exposition be confounded – do not count them among the just!

You sneaky bastard. You and Sfe M. came up with a damn good way to scam, I mean to finance your talent and excite readers. You’re very clever (and sneaky).
I got nothing to say about the page, it’s great like every thing else in this comic

Well durn. I have to ask this. What does “pear shaped” mean in Ike’s statement?


its assumed to be related to glassblowing, where when the glass is either too hot and runny, the bulb starts to stretch and warp, going from a wonderful perfect ball, to a distinctly pear shape. At that point, the only way to fix it is to snip the bulb, melt it all back down, and start from the beginning.
