I’m going to be at Rose City Comic Con this weekend! It’s my last convention of 2017! Come on down and say hi, I’ll be at Artist Alley table E8!
Related: Because of the convention I might not get the next comic page up on time. I’m going to try really hard! But I might not make the deadline this time. Boo! Thanks for your understanding!
It’s horrible because poor Shelly, but dang that first panel might be some of the best art in the comic so far.
Greg, here’s an idea: Punch Ravi. it may not fix things, but it’ll probably make you feel better and nobody’s likely to stop you.
I second this
Somehow, I imagine his response would be to punch Greg back (possibly jokingly, possibly seriously) and send him to a different plane of existence.
There’s that breakdown that has had a long time coming. Poor Meesh
For sure. When you think about it, this is all happening less than a year after “Orientations.”
Like I said before, I myself would have freaked out ages ago, she’s doing pretty well for herself considering.
I’m not sure that Merial has the right advice here. I mean yes, I’m sure that Meesh needs her space right now, but I also think that it woudl be really beneficial to have someone hold her and tell her that it’s OK and shat she doesn’t have to have all the answers, they love her anyway.
Also, on a totally unrelated note, when I’ve had a very stressful day I like to go hung my goat. So just a suggestion…
You must go through a lot of goats then. Unless you meant Hug and not Hung. Hanging a goat tends to be fatal.
Not if you do it while it is in a harness around its midsection. ;-)
True, but don’t forget: Merial just spent a year being roommates with Michelle. Odds are, she’s seen Michelle have meltdowns like this in the past, and learned the best approach to deal with it.
I think part of her advise is let her fall asleep for the moment. She needs that–she is going to crash. Be there when she gets up.
Maybe Ravi could arrange for something. He’s kinda a big deal, and this whole episode has gotten to acknowledge his own faults and be more empathetic towards others. He might even try to bestow a gift to another descendant of one of his old friends again, and stick around this time.
Oh, Michelle. Oh honey, no, it’s okay. No one has ALL the answers.
Someone should go after her. Just to make sure she doesn’t do anything rash.
You mean like running out of the Avalon in midform?
Something like that. :/
In her current state of mind, I rather picture her stumbling into the maze (right there next to the Hall) and just sitting down for a good cry.
Oh man, my heart. I’ve been following Skin Deep pretty much since the beginning, and seeing Michelle hurting is like seeing a friend hurt. :/
Poor Michelle. Ever since she turned, she just wanted her life to be normal or to have some kind of stability, but every time, when she thinks everything has settled and calmed down, something drastic happens that changes everything.
Well, it’d be boring otherwise :P
Maybe at this point Michelle would prefer for her life to be boring.
So what exactly is a trogdor?
It’s from an old website, called Homestarrunner, where one of the characters, Strongbad, showed how to draw a dragon.
Heartbreaking stuff. Poor girl is really struggling to keep it all together, and I don’t blame her one bit.
I’m wondering, who might she cross paths with when she storms out of the building? There are some interesting possibilities.
Maybe the guy harpy? Or maybe someone new that we haven’t met yet.
Come on, he needs Greg now.
TROGDOR WAS A MAN……OR MAAAYBE HE WAS A DRAGON……..WITH THAT ARM SO HE’S A DRAGON MAN…..WELL MAAAAYBE HE’S A DRAGON MAN. BUT HE IS ALWAYS TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR
That convention illustration is going to cause problems. There’s two pats in towards your booth but no way out! You’re going to have thousands, possibly dozens, of people crowded in front of your table going nowhere!
Please, please rethink your traffic plans in the future.
Switch the thousands and the dozens then the message makes sense.
So did Kory tell anyone when she will update the comic or something?
She did say she would most likely be a little late updating this comic in the page notes
Please check my twitter for updates on the comic. Because of RCCC there’s no update this week, sorry!
It’s OK Kory thanks.
Wait, I just realized… is her Medallion back to its blank design?
It isn’t. If you look real close you’ll see
