Is that a rabbit with a human face or a weird breed of rabbit?
Probably something like a seal point angora.
I don’t think he has a strictly human face, halfway rabbit and human seems more accurate
Either way that bugbear is about to be fending off some tiny bunny fists. :D *flail flail flail*
More like bunny feet. Rabbits are kinda like kangaroos in that they fight more with their feet than their fists
Not always. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-eybXw0jSE
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, it seems
Barnaby’s design is glorious, holy crap
You’re right on the money about Barnaby.
I REALLY don’t know who’s cuter. Hank Feebay, or Barnaby.
Man, the Hyde family’s a real bunch of charmers, ain’t them…
Oh my goodness, I *adore* the satyr councillor’s fashion sense and sheer chill.
Agreed about the Hydes. Alec definitely has the same scornfool Attitude to everyone as his father.
I’d LOVE to know who the LA’s optometrist is, just so I could get a set of fluro pink glasses frames.
What a bunch of professionals.
now i’m really wondering what Wonderland is like in this setting.. is Hyde’s remarks about a mirror literal, or just him poking fun over the literary connection?
and Barnaby’s (?) comment about time suggests that reality itself might work a bit different there..
I have vague memory about someone from the comic saying it was a prejudiced and class-system based place, or something, and they didn’t like Wonderland, but I don’t remember who said it. Someone who used to live there? It was in the Q&A pages. I’d love to know more about Wonderland. I hope we get to see more about it sometime!
I love how this universe Kory is letting us see is so complex and full.
Pretty sure that was Eleanor and Rupert.
Yes, I think Eleanor made reference to class and prejudice, Rupert made reference to sudden and unwarranted violence, and Mary Finn later made reference in-story to endemic rudeness. I can see how Hyde senior would dislike such things, especially if he was the receiver rather than the dispenser. Plus, one resident might be able to mess with him in a way that he would find both unfamiliar and disturbing.
Cheshire Cat: *fades in behind him, grin first* How are you getting on?
Orville: Gah! Stop doing that!! You’re not supposed to be able to sneak up on a bugbear!
Queen of Hearts: Who is making all that racket?! And why is he being so scruffy and slovenly in my presence??? OFF WITH HIS HEAD!!!!! And trim his nails while you’re about it!!!!
Orville: **** this… *heads for the exit*
Eleanor and Rupert were in RQ number 6 for December 2009
Mary talking about Wonderland and peeved with Ravi
Illumination chapter 1 pages 45 and 46
In the SkinDeep universe, Looking Glasses are real. Such a Looking Glass is where Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) must have obtained some of his inspiration from for his second Alice novel. They are portals to/from Wonderland.
RQ’s 2016, number 15
So are Bugbears, like, PROFESSIONAL a-holes?
Yes … did you not notice ?
No. Not all Bugbears.
Myra has none of the scornfool Attitude that Alec and his father openly display.
I did notice. That’s why I asked. We now have three case examples of Bugbears and all three are giant jerkwads. So I began to suspect that it’s part of their genetic makeup to be asses on a professional basis.
Myra doesn’t go out of her way to insult and mock people, whereas Alec and his father actively do so.
Added to that, she’s willing to use her Bugbear abilities to help people. With what we’ve seen of Alec and his father, I can’t see them being as willing or helpful, unless they can see a way to use their abilities to frighten, insult, or belittle a victim.
So I can’t see how Myra could be seen as somehow being a jerkwad.
Myra’s rough around the edges, but she’s actually super helpful.
They’re not professionals; only Olympic-class amateurs.
Although Myra has a gruff way of expressing herself, she does seem the decent sort. Look at the things she does instead of what she says.
Does our White Rabbit carry a pocket watch on their trip through the Looking Glass?
That Satyr looks like he could be The Most Interesting Satyr in the World XD
I’m wondering if the Satyr is the ‘old man Carter’ mentioned in the discussion between Abigail and Paul in Exchanges Heartaches pages 29 – 33.
That rabbit is mind-bogglingly adorable. I want to snuggle him, but I think he’d be offended.
So here is a question that I would like answered. Did the Hyde family have an ancestor named Doctor Jackle. And I am not trying to be funny OK.
…Isn’t that supposed to be “Dr. Jekyll” ?
So far, he seems to be completely missing from the Hyde family. Myra seems a bit rough around the edges, but she has a heart. She’s more a whole person.
Any idea how she lost her left eye, by the way?
Myra didn’t lost her eye. She uses an eyepatch in it because her medallion broke and now she is uable to hide her bugbear eye, much like Greg with his horns.Myra didn’t lost her eye. She uses an eyepatch in it because her medallion broke and now she is unable to hide her bugbear eye, much like Greg with his horns.
It was established long ago that Myra’s eye is fine. It’s just that her medallion is damaged (and has been since before she got it) so that it doesn’t camouflage that eye. So, when she’s in human form she wears an eye patch to hide the eerie glow.
Myra’s Medallion, was RQ number 4 for November 2013
and one again you make a bugbear character that I can’t help but adore to pieces
You mean as a character and not as a person, right? …Right?
Kory, just want to say thanks for such a great comic! I really enjoy reading it and I get excited whenever a new page comes out. Thanks for all your hard work!
Hyde: Oh Lord, I’d rather be set on fire than go to that whimsical cesspit of an Avalon.
Barnaby: May your every wish be granted.
I was about to say: Be careful, Orville… if you’d rather be set on fire, that can probably be arranged.
Wait, is Nuala male or female?
Nuala is the first Nemean Lioness to feature in the stories.
Kory explicitly referred to her as being female, on the Patreon page for the inks and dialog for page 10.
“Nuala is the Head of the Nemeans pretty much and the good doctor is her…idk…vice president I guess?”
Just noticed, Orville Hyde’s medallion actually is the same design as the Plesiostore one.
