Oh my God Thad! It’s about time you showed up to one

Yay! Surprise extra comic. I didn’t halftone it just because the halftone obstructed certain details which made it impossible to work out what was going on.

One of writing teachers encourages us to write not so much about the fact that it’s raining but more about the feeling of being rained upon.

I find it really hard to write reviews of books, apart from “I read it” and “you should read it.”

Today I bought Skim by cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki. The minute I picked it up I knew it was going to be some quality shit. The story is one of them “this is what it’s like to be a tenth grade girl” kinda tales, seemingly aimed towards those readers as well. But I felt the story was good enough that it moved beyond that “narrow” aim. When comparing Skim to a book within the same “narrow” genre, like ทดลองเล่นฟรี 500 Good As Lily (by Derek Kirk Kim and Jesse Hamm), Skim comes out to be the better title. I mean, as much as I enjoyed Good As Lily, the Tamaki Cousins just seemed to put five times as much effort into Skim. The book itself felt alive, and the characters were probably some of the best examples of three dimensional characters; a perfect measuring stick for me to strive towards. It’s been a while since I’ve been so enveloped by a story so well written and well drawn; while reading it I actually felt like I was inside the main character’s mind looking out through her eyes. (Or: I felt like I was being rained upon as opposed to merely reading about it raining.) You must read it.

Whoops! I fell asleep last night in the middle of working on this.

BTW, the last frame was not inspired by Superbad, it was something I’ve had in my notes since pretty much the beginning. This was just the first opportunity I had to use it.

…Emo will start getting weepy

We’re gonna take it to the bridge!

The next, like… six or seven pages will actually be ones I did back in October, but had removed because I decided to fix up the current chapter a bit. Now if you’ve been around since October, then these pages won’t be anything new, though there will be some minor dialogue changes. The first one I’ll post tomorrow, and then once every two days. 100% guarenteed!

This is rather fortunate because over the next two weeks or so I’ll be at two conventions: SacAnime this upcoming weekend and Otakon the following weekend. Comicing during convention season is hard, but at least I have an archive of pages to post during this time. Yay!

Just talk to chicks…
