Scene change scene change! Let’s take a look at some other characters for a bit!
Not a whole lot to say from this end! I’m just spending a lot of time amping up for Stumptown! I will have new charms and new medallions and books and LOTS OF AWESOME STUFF. I hope y’all can come on down and see me! It’s my first con selling all my stuff!
Also here is the first time David gets to speak. He’s been around in several previous pages, but I suppose this would be his GRAND DEBUT. He was originally created by Sheana Molloy!
I’m loving Eleanor in this page. Also, the perspective changes (mostly 2 and 3) are really great and interesting.
BEST SMILE EVAR!!!!! I still can’t stop laughing!!
That smile will be giving me the giggles and fueling my nightmares for the next week.
AND DAVID’S WEARING A KILT! 8D
who is that david asshole and why is he an asshole? he’s like draco malfoy with claws…
mein gott. XDXDXD precisely.
Racism is rampant in this fictional world. This is like Senator Kelly and Professor X type stuff here.
is it safe to asume that your British at this point?, not at there is everything wrong with British.
Hah! Nope! I’m a poor ol’ hick from the Ozarks. : ) I’m glad I’m not screwing up the comic!
You could never screw this up, Kory! Have fun at Stumptown. Sell lots of swag!
Does this page have no alt text or is it just me? o.o
Jim is looking very British today.
That smile is hilarious, plus that’s a nice touch on the ears!
“Oh? What about the rumours of the last sphinx being over there?”
“Lawd, David, now yer just being barmy. You seriously believe all that crap you read on the Internet?”
In other news, the idea of a drunk!Eleanor has worried me long before this…could be easy to be less careful with that fire of hers while tipsy, wouldn’t you think?
Yea, didn’t this happen before Michelle got her medallion?
Well, that’s an enigmatic smile, and is that an enigmatic wink? We’re still not sure what Rhonda is thinking, though her lamia friend is still acting like it’s all a big joke. Ike doesn’t know what to think, and I’d say that his smile is more problematic. >:=)>
Meanwhile, over at the captain’s table, it looks like prejudice is alive and well. Now, is Lorne looking to get away from that, or is he looking to approach something? He did appear to be looking straight at Tony.
Ike: Hi, Lorne.
Lorne: …uh, I didn’t introduce myself earlier, I…
Ike: Oh, yeah, Tony, this is Lorne Lyon. Lorne, Tony, uh, Gillis.
Tony: So that’s “Lyon” as in-
Lorne: Cafes and tea shoppes, yes.
That’s prophetic, considering one of those “weird things” nearly killed (or will nearly kill) Mr. Finn. What with dragons, nightmares, the Momo and demons, America DOES seem to be a much more dangerous place than the LA.
Oh god, so much casual racism.
I’m lovin’ the bandersnatch. It must be because she’s got that cuteness around her.
I’m still wondering how Tony will explain this to his mom.
I’m imagining Ike in the first panel saying all that while trying to keep smiling.
so am i
Yay! So just about to tie together full circle with the first chapter, awesome :)
heh, very funny to see Ike so uncomfortable. He didnt seem that way in company of friends, he must be very out of practice socializing with others and the awkwardness will hopefully come across more cute than anything else to the gaggle of girls holding his attention.
I love Lorne’s coat, wish I could get me one like it. Lastly, is it just me or did Jim seem to really brush off Lorne in that last box?
Ha! I knew we would see a forced smile from Ike! Great work, as usual Mrs. Bing!
Just de-lurking here to say how much _I_ would love to meet a purty young lady who smokes a long-stem clay pipe…. seeing as how I’m smoking my briar-wood at this very moment with a lovely pear blend which my tobacconist swears is from Germany. Wondering what…Rhonda, is it? …what her preferred blend is.
Kory: long time, big fan here. Love your story-telling AND your fantastic artwork. And I’m overdue for giving you a ‘watch’ at DA (Tygker there, will be by to give you a wave presently…!)
I think Lorne is trying to prove that he can do things without Jim. He is pobably going to talk to Ike and mention something of that sort. You know, “See Ike, I can be out of Jim’s immediate presence and it doesn’t kill me.”
…ten seconds later…
“Oh! Jim looks like he needs something…See you later Ike and…uh…Mr. Harpy.”
Eleanor should be cheering up Jim. Love to see more of Eleanor too.
that chick-lion’s got a crush, she likes him don’t she? it looks like shes trying to get im tipsy…..
Like the male harpy, eh, Jimbo?
Monday night. Last comment on this page is last.
I’ve been lurking for a very VERY long time! Currently doing an archive binge AND I HAVE THE FOLLOWING POINT TO SAY: The chick-lion in silver….was the girl outside of Avalon “looking for some kind of warehouse thing.” Same shirt. See here: http://www.skindeepcomic.com/archive/handshakes-4-outside-the-warehouse/
Has anyone noticed that the silver lioness is a reoccurring character? She shows up three times that I know of. First when Blanche is showing Anthony into the avalon, she was stuck outside and couldn’t get in. Second is a little later, when she’s in midform in a crowd (You can tell because she has the same clothes), and her third appearance is now.
Who is that in the bottom right of the fourth panel?
That smile looks like what I do when I’m ordered to cheer up.
Eleanor is my most favorite character!
