Homecoming 13: Weirdness Magnet Homecoming 13: Weirdness Magnet published on March 5, 2012Read more posts by the author of Homecoming 13: Weirdness Magnet, KoryBing47 Comments on Homecoming 13: Weirdness Magnet I’m going to be at Wondercon the weekend after next! If you are in Anaheim, please stop by!
And if she knows what a satyr is, she is more worried right now about her daughter potentially dating one than her daughter being a giant cat-bird thingy. If only she knew Greg.
Greg is also a fellow tea-drinker. I think they have a sound basis for trust.
haha weirdness magnet I like it
Hey cool, that’s my power too!
“Fateful Aura”, perhaps?
Ah, a fellow Scion player I take it?
Well, the concept of a “Weirdness Magnet” makes a good reason for the portagonist to encounter strange things on his adventures.
If you are so inclined, there is an entry on tvTropes about it.
Yay! New comic! Uh, hope Greg’s okay with Michelle sayin’ what he is…
Oh man, I’m kinda worried about Greg now.
Greg is my favorite and I can’t wait to see him again.
I know it doesn’t work that way, but having you at Ottawa’s first ComicCon would be amazing. Boba Fett is coming. The original. Also, the Back to the Future DeLorean. May 12-13th.
Sadness, I say!
What is wrong with you where you need to be a teacher to know what a Satyr is -_-
I’m not sure whether Michelle’s mom’s response was more “what’s a satyr?” or “he’s a WHAT?!”
It’s perfectly possible that Mrs. Jocasta knows what a satyr is, but is still incredulous at the idea of having one in her kitchen. One wonders how she’d react if she knew exactly what kind of fur and feathers were used to make Michelle’s hair ornament.
Why is Jim’s hair in the Christmas box?
Nah, not pretty enough to be Jim’s hair. ::grin:: Prob’ly old garland.
Awww, such a flopped Michelle. Especially that 4th frame appearance.
Yeah, she looks so, “sulky cat” there, perfectly rendered, with the woeful expression.
Aww, you’ve so perfectly gotten the hang of Michelle’s anatomy. I love it! Can’t wait to see what Greg thinks of all of this.
Michelle crouching down like that in the bottom left makes her appear younger than she is due to the height position with her mother. It creates a situation akin to young kid learning something big and bad about the world and wanting explanations from parents. Only it’s kinda reversed.
… this is of course, likely over-analysis. (Why didn’t I think like this back in college/high-school.)
I’m an insanity magnet, means I never have a dull moment :D
I love her look in the fourth panel fits perfectly with the mood you were trying to create.
How do you know what mood she was trying to create?
Well, what mood did it inspire in you?
Nicely drawn. Her poses are so expressive. Like others have said, I wonder what Greg will think after realizing she has outed him to her mother. It could go either way.
Wish I had enough money to travel across the US to the west coast for a con.
Good stuff either way! :)
Haha, Jim ist hiding in that box, ready to scare everybody half to death ;D
I think Greg is aware that his being a satyr is almost bound to come up in the conversation, once Michelles mother has registered what’s happening. And he was pushing really hard for it to happen, so I don’t think it’s going to be a big deal.
Omigosh, Michelle is flopped like a pouty cat.
I yelped “Yes she does!” aloud.
I’m going to join everyone else in exclaiming about how great Michelle’s expressions and poses are.
I love love love Michelle’s body language on this page. It’s so expressive of how she’s feeling.
Awwwww, Michelle! She looks so utterly defeated. :(
I don’t think you are taking reader questions, but are there people/beings who are Chimeras? (I.E. the mythical Greek Chimera.) Would they be considered monsters or would they have medallions and if so, how would their mid forms look like?
I was looking up some other mythical creatures when I happened to come across this mythical creature and wondered how it would fit within the Skin Deep universe. It’s be quite interesting to see.
I second that!
Awww, floppy!Michelle is really cute. I get the feeling that see’s more comfortable is her sphinx body than she was when she first changed, too.
I like to think of six impossible things before breakfast. :3
We should clarify that they’re SUPPOSEDLY impossible things. If she’s seeing them, then by definition they aren’t impossible anymore, just improbable. Well, except for around Michelle. As she’s mentioned, for her the supposedly impossible is becoming par for the course.
I sympathize with her a bit on this one. Like a few other folks who have commented on here, I think that I’m a bit of a Weirdness Magnet, too. I doubt I’d have it any other way, though.
I’ve noticed a huge improvement in Michelle’s full-form face over the last two comics. Keep up the great work, mate!
Have to comment on your tumble. My father used to read The Duel to me when I was itty bitty to the point that I still remember it today.
The Gingham Dog and Calico Cat,
side by side on the table sat;
“T’was half-past twelve, and (what do you think?)
Nor one nor t’other had slept a wink!
Okay, so I don’t remember all of it. Very awesome that your g’ma is your inspiration.
If I’m not a magnet for the weird already, I’d gladly be one o3o
Haha I can imagine how the next conversation is going to go xD
“greg, take off the cap.”
“aww man but it took me ages to tuck my ears just right-”
Suspense! Great page :D
Her mom’s hand is hovering there like “I don’t know if petting her like a cat is awkward or not…”
when does this comic update? I can’t seem to find out. ._.
Tuesdays, but on a small break now not sure when the next update wil be. Probably next week or the week after.
Wish you were gonna be at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo on the 27-29th. Besides Amanda Tapping, you’re the only other person I wanna meet. :D
Just got my Borogrove cards in the mail today and i have to say they are AWESOME! Im glad i waited for them now.
Can you please post at least a note on the front page about updates and when they might resume? It’s bad for a comic’s fans when the comic just….stops.
Well, it looks like “Alice in Wonderland” where the white knight says, ” I get up every morning and try to imagine two impossible things before breakfast. Or I think that’s where I read that. Beuutifully done.
Janice would give the best headpats to Michelle and Greg.
:) :3 Σ:
