I am enjoying this comic because it is letting me show y’all more of Greg and Michelle’s personalities outside of “Greg is shy” and “Michelle is the main character from the storyline that ended three years ago.”
Have you heard about the latest Kickstarter that I’m part of?
If you have and you’ve backed, then thank you so much! If you are jonesing for some more comic projects to back, did you know that Evan Dahm is raising money for an Order of Tales book?
Doesn’t that look beautiful?
Hmm, more and more I think that Greg and Michelle have the start of something going on. Nothing solid, of course.
I love the way Michelle’s hair is spread out through the third to fifth panels. You have a better eye for how to draw hair than I ever had. Not that that says anything – I’m a very crappy artist in general.
yay more comic!!! am excited to see her moms reaction
If Greg were to kiss Hitler, their mustaches would never touch.
I believe you mean Hitler and Worf.
That is the weirdest way to say someone has a long nose I have ever seen…
It’s more where the hair is and where it isn’t.
So, are they officially dating yet, or are they still trying to pretend they don’t totally wanna snog each other. I’m just sayin’.
the first panel? yeah I make that face all the time.
Uh-oh, I think Michelle is starting to transition already, Her ears are looking more leonine this week than last. Probably just a reaction to the stress and agnst.
You are really building the suspense here Kory, I can see several possibilities here
A. Michelle shows up with this guy Greg and tells her mother she has something important to discuss and her mother thinks she is pregnant.
B. Michelle’s mom thinks Greg is the source of Michelle’s un ease and goes after Greg and Michelle protects Greg by transitioning to full Sphinx mode. This stops Mom in her tracks, Which way it goes from there depends on if mom is a Sphinx or not.
C. It turns out that Mom is a sphinx or knows Dad was but Dad is not really dead, but his death was faked for some reason and they have to spring him from the inferno.
Wow, this could go so many ways! and none of the above are probably right, Kory has a way of coming up with some real plot twists and gets us wishing our lives away that next week’s installment would get her real soon. “A” above seems too easy, but it would keep us hanging trying to figure out for a couple of weeks how it is going to shake out, and keeping us hanging like that is right up Kory’s alley.
Aggggg! the suspense is killing me.
Actually right now it feels more like “Mitchelle is shy” and “Greg is determined/not taking any of this nonsense” XD
In the immortal words of Rachel, “Lets do this!” After that, things always seem to go awry. I am excited to see how this goes.
+1 for reference to Animorphs.
(That series was great.)
Yeah! I got a +1! What is that… (four.. five… six…) SEVEN!!! I got SEVEN!!!
Oh this is great fun. *pokes Michelle* Don’t worry, I’ll help you, seeing as I know EVERYTHING about sphinxes and how they’re supposed to tell their mothers that they just happen to be some cat-bird monster and found out only recently, then preceding dealt with a MoMo, gryphon, saytr, and nixie. Nope, nothing to worry…about..at all…I can’t do this! *runs off screaming*
Oh, by the way, the first panel? Yeah, I can do that and you’re jealous because I can. Bl
Yay Bret Hull Jersey, someone’s a hockey fan and that’s WIN!
I have to give credit to Sfé Monster for finding me an appropriate jersey for Greg. I was just going to give him a generic jersey but Sfé set me straight.
and the St. Louis Blues connection fits with the I-44 corridor theme! (would Greg bleed blue, just on principle?)
I love Michelle’s face in panel4. Your art has gotten ridiculously better since you first started the comic(Not that it was shabby to begin with), but I’m super excited to see more of this arc(I mostly just like looking at your art, the story’s just a bonus!). Can’t wait to see Michelle’s mom and how to see this all unfold.
Quit stalling, Michelle! Urgh, anyone think she should have taken Merial and/or Jim with her instead? Or Eustace or Marshall, even? Come to that, with the whole support network thing that they have, you’d think she could get advice at the Avalon, or bring some experienced counsellors along in order to help break the news, or at least contain the damage if her mother freaks.
Anyway, making do with what you’ve got, good luck Michelle, now: right foot goes forward, followed by the left, then the right again, no, don’t look at them, now, there’s the doorstep…
Didn’t Jim push her off a cliff to get her to fly? I wonder how he’d help with the Mom thing. . .
Sadly he’s too busy swapping (Nixie) spit with Merial to help out here.
Thinking about it though he would probably just go full griffon and then start hammering on the door.
“Hi, Michelle’s mom!”
Them guys are pretty cute.
NO NO NO TOO MUCH SUSPENSE NEXT WEEK’S STRIP NOW PLZ
The facial expressions are great! Especially in panels 3 and 4. They’re so . . . expressive. (And I need to break out that Thesaurus!)
And I like that we get to know their personalities better. That’s always my favorite thing in any story – how different personalities interact.
This is a random thought but I’d like to see you concept of a Cockatrice and what if you’d have it as a “monster” or medallion wearer. Like I said, complete random thought, love your work, Keep it up! :)
I just found this and am so not loving that it left off here xD I can’t wait to see how this goes.
I was thinking if Michelle tell her mother about it will her mother say big deal *POOF* lol ?
Michelle is lucky – her hair will stay tucked behind her ears
I am shipping these two so hard, I swear. They are so cute.
Growing up watching sitcoms is a big part of why I’m almost compulsively honest.
