Hello Goodbye: That Poor Sod

It’s a page full of awkward Ikes and sad Anthonys! It sounds like maybe everyone will finally stop asking me about Ike and Manticores in the near future.

Also dudes! Did you notice that I have a NEW MEDALLION IN THE SHOP?

Nixie medallions for sale! They are GORGEOUS, kids! Really great looking. I took a gamble on the enamel and it really paid off.

Also: do you like DESKTOP WALLPAPERS? Because I am doing a donation drive right now and if you donate $1 or more you get a FANCY SKIN DEEP WALLPAPER featuring the ENTIRE CAST of Skin Deep! Just go look up on the sidebar to your right for details! Woo!

It should also be mentioned that Ike and Remy (the lion in the first two panels) were created by Sheana Molloy! And Anthony, as always, was created by Sfé Monster!


I approve of this awkwardness.
I can’t wait to learn more about Ike because he is my favorite character I know next to nothing about.

I really love all of Ike’s expressions on this page and how much more bestial his design is, in that his face is more elongated than those with medallions.

Ahhh i’ve been waiting with bated breath and i am, once again, not disappointed.
This is a brilliant page. :D

The awkward conversation is awesome. Poor Tony ;P

Blanche could have chosen someone who’s a bit better at this sort of thing. Unfortunately, since the party boy and his friends are otherwise engaged, Tim and Sam are presumably standing ready to intervene at the door, and nobody would want anyone’s parents showing up, it’s would have to be Newbie McNotbeenintroducedyet.

I love the expressions in the last panel so much that I actually bounced up and down in the chair and made little peep-noises of amusement.

Atleast he has Beer :D

and yet its unfortunate at the same time as he’s reminded that his hands are not what they used to be everytime he wants to drink it. I imagine some of that beer ended up on him first time he tried/tries to drink…

I always feel incredibly impatient when I read the latest page of a webcomic.


Even worse when a comic goes on Hiatus >.<

Comes to a point when you read through a webcomics archive and realize that the last comic was done two years ago and died mid arc. Nooooooooooooo!

I know this is late as anything, but I /just/ got what’s going on with Anthony. Someone tried to make a one-way spell to disguise monsters, and succeeded! Only, what with touching the medallion, the spell sort of didn’t hold up too well. That’s my take, at least.
