Let’s see how good my artistic and writing abilities are. Can you tell why she slipped?

I do believe I’ve discovered one fatal flaw in my writing skillz. [writes note to self: "introduce less new character"] … Unfortunately it’s not gonna get much better… I’ve got a few other characters who’ll be thrown into the mix. But I suppose, again, the confusing nature of all the new characters is just to put you into the role of Avery. I mean he just moved to Moose River, so to him everyone else is pretty new also. :P … I’ll figure out a way to consolitate all this stuff. There’s at least a method to my madness.

Someone made a point about the confusing nature of having so many new characters. I think you should add a link to the character page directly at the top. It would help loads! It was the first thing I looked for, and failed to find.

Plippy (May 1, 2006, 10:29):
Actually, I dunno why I didn’t add in the background. I think maybe for dramatic effect?

Timbosister (May 1, 2006, 8:08):
Yeah, but why did the background dissapear in the third panel?

Start of Chapter 3

So starts Chapter 3. I’ll probably end up putting little chapter pages before each chapter… but… I dunno. We’ll see.


Plippy (Apr 28, 2006, 22:07):
I think the whole “a lot of new characters is confusing” thing is intentional; to sort of replicate the feeling Avery has for seeing a whole bunch of people he’s never met before.

Plippy (Apr 28, 2006, 22:05):
There is a small, incomplete one… click on the “Regular” link on the top of the page, then click on “Character Guide”. … It doesn’t help that I draw my characters a bit too similar, but I can assure you this is someone new. Maybe I shouldn’t have tossed her in like this out of nowhere, but hey, that’s what practicing my comic composing skills is all about. ;)

I don’t know if anyone’s asked this before but.. do you have a character page? Ever since that bunch of characters popped up all at once I’ve been getting a bit confused.

Do you have a

Well, that’s the end of Chapter 2. Took me long enough, no? I’ll try to finish Chapter 3 sooner. (At least in time for Wizard World Chicago this August.) Chapter 3 however will start as soon as possible. I don’t have ant guest comics to share with you this time. :(

This is why today’s comic didn’t appear sooner. It’s just a little thing I helped my Dad with, ripe with insides jokes only my Dad and his friend Bob Bloom are privy to.


Plippy (Apr 26, 2006, 1:29):
OK, now at the P-Tip Productions site (the business end of Moose River) are various mini-comics, ready for you to buy! (I hope some people are interested in owning copies of my comic….) … We’re working on a few other ideas, like tshirts and buttons. But these will be revealed in due time. First I need to create a market to sell stuff to.

Nothing big here. Two more comics left until the end of the chapter!


Plippy (Apr 22, 2006, 1:06):
I lied…. I said I was gonna post the last comic on Saturday, but I got caught up on a number of things. See you… Monday?

Plippy (Apr 21, 2006, 3:41):
I need to work on my foreshortening… Emo seems larger than Anne, despite Anne being closer and Emo being farther. Bleh. Hopefully no one noticed.
