I have to Thank You Kory for not drawing the centaurs….Hanging bits. it means alot to me.
Kory didn’t want to get kicked.
Just flapping in the breeze.
You know, they’re THERE… the characters have not been neutered. They are just tastefully understated. Seems like there is enough fur in place for the beings of that type to feel comfortably discrete in public. I like the way it has been handled.
Kory rox! :D
“Oh and over there is an ancient, mythical establishment known as a ‘Bookstore’.”
“And also, Giant Rabbits.”
In panel five, that’s the girl from the beginning, am I right?
Yup :3 Bohwmian Lion.ess.
“I hope I don’t regret this”
Oh poor Tony has no idea….
*runs to get popcorn*
Okay, okay. I’m ready.
*insert rising ominous laughter here*
I hope that’s not Elise the Second, a theoretical half-hedgehog ICK!
HOLY CHITINOUS CAT CARROTS I JUST NOTICED THE GIANT RABBIT IN PANEL 5
A pookah, if I’m not mistaken.
Is that centaur wearing a kilt?
nope, if you look closely you’ll see he’s got a jacket tied around his waist
I just realized that the girl in panel 5 is Ike’s girlfriend and the chick from earlier trying to get in. forgot her name
Er… Phelton. I wish this software had an Edit function.
Giant… Rabbit… with… RED EYES…
Should we be concerned that this will turn up later?
Or just going to the tea shop for a cuppa?
I LOVE that in this strip it could easily be EITHER (Or eventually BOTH)
Love the art, the story, the characters, the WORLD.
Hoping to get a dead-tree edition of this story some day…
I’m re-reading this and I’m astounded at how well everything holds together. All of the characters are where they should be, every detail exactly where it is, with the kind of precision I’d expect out of a time travel story*.
Like, the naga lady in front of the bakery. You can see her in panel 6 of the previous page as she moves towards that same bakery. I’m pretty certain she’s an unnamed background character. Kory could have left out the bakery entirely from the previous page and no-one would have been the wiser. I’m gobsmacked at this level of detail and care.
*For clarity, I really like time travel stories. I realize that some folk despise them though, and don’t want this to read as an insult.
