Skin Deep is back! And I’m going to try my dangedest to keep it updating on time from now on! Thank you all so much for your patience! Why was I so busy? It’s because I was working on my comic for this:
Funding for this anthology will begin in two weeks! Keep an eye out for it, I think you’ll really like my story (it was written by Karla Pacheco!)
Also, THIS WEEKEND, I will be at TCAF!
If you’re in the Toronto area, come on down! I’ll have NEW THINGS to sell! And admission is free!
This is wonderful!
Seconded. I love this page. It makes me smile.
Jim: “And now to shut him in a room with a round doorknob.”
How long do you think Colin’s just going to be stumbling around on two feet? He’s going to have no coordination whatsoever when it comes to being human most likely.
Considering his skidding out on all fours, on page 9, I think his co-ordination will be out of whack for a while.
Poor lad’s gonna be all thumbs.
…so to speak :P
I dunno about you but my cats skid all the time on hardwood floors when they’re running and turning quickly
Yay! The comic came back on my B-day
Happy birthday! (It’s my birthday too!)
My nephew also has the best birthday ever. Star Wars Day. May the Fourth be with you!
Oh god I love Colin so much
Wait… DOES THIS MEAN THAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE COLIN GET HIS MEDALLION?
Colin’s human form is now going to always be obscured by conveniently obstructive foreground objects.
All we’re gonna see are his thumbs. Maybe a hand or two.
He’ll be like Wilson in Home Improvement.
Colin may like thumbs, but I have a feeling he’s going to hate pants.
Cmon Gregboy, put a smile on yer face!
Greg’s trying to calm Michelle.
I didn’t realize we were going to actually SEE human Colin!!! Eeeeeee!!!!
D’awww! Look at Greg petting Michelle in panel six. She might be angry, frustrated and probably more than a bit scared, but she knows that Greg has her back. Literally.
Hooray! Kory and the comic is back! This is cause for celebration! *goes to sleep early for once and finally gets a good night’s sleep*
I can’t help but notice Greg’s hand on Michelle’s back….
I would have thought that Mary Finn would have pitched in by now with some more demands that Colin moderate his behaviour. Perhaps she is impressed by his use of vocabulary, and wants to see if he can be driven to further and even greater transports of loquacity. Or perhaps James Finn has reached across and is squeezing her hand while mouthing “Come on dear”… and trying not to laugh at Colin’s impatience.
I’m thinking the latter actually, considering the calm and unruffled and laid-back attitude James has.
Just give the poor kid his thumbs already.
Thanks for the heads-up on New World, Kory.
I’ll definitely be after a copy of if for my bookshelf.
I swear Colin needs a whole chapter just to himself! The cuteness!
I swear that’s what this book is about. Sphinxes? Just a sidestory. This story is The Ballad Of Colins Thumbs!
Merial’s smile… I can imagine her eating some popcorn, wathcing all the scene
Also, Michelle’s wings (and forepaws) all ruffled X-D
And Greg just touching her back as if to calm her… *awww*
Greg may have a passel o’ cousins, but neither he nor Michelle nor Merial has any siblings. Merial is obviously fascinated by Jim’s interaction with his brother. (Yes, popcorn seems warranted.)
Don’t do it Colin! THUMBS ARE OVERRATED!
I don’t know. With thumbs he might actually have a chance of holding Jim’s beak closed with an equivalent of that maneuver in the last panel.
I just love Colin’s expressions on this page.
I will almost cry irl if his talisman is a dud.
*tries not to chuckle as he reads the comic and adds the voices of Liverpudlians*
Colin, just relax mate, its like Crimbo all over again.
Why do I get the feeling that Colin will get his medallion then become bored of it in 5 seconds flat?
I don’t think so. I think he’ll just be traumatised that he can’t do all the things in human form he could do when he was stuck as a griffin. Also, clothing is going to suck. Add to that the learning curve of using the hands he’s about to have, and he’s going to be frustrated, not bored.
Panel 4 is just perfect! XD
[Michelle] “We’re NOT calling it that!”
[Merial] .oO(Ooh yes we are! =D)
Eee, I love Colin to bits!
Michelle all ruffled <3 It's so cuuuuute!
Oh gods, Colin is exactly the type of infant I actively avoid at family gatherings.
“Come to grips with?” Bad choice of words, Michelle!
I’m just so happy you’re back. I’ve just really missed your comic.
Colin, Colin, Colin… thumbs are overrated.
DAMN IT JESUS I’M TRYING TO MAKE A POINT HERE.
It’s a MEDALLION! MEDALLION MEDALLION MEDALLION! I’D GET IT MYSELF, BUT I DON’T HAVE THUMBS!
Heh. Once he’s wearing it, would that make him a medal-lion?
Jim is at peak older sibling energy here
