Pep Rally — Page 2

Author commentary

Veronica: I am still amused at the poster on the first panel. For those who can’t read it, it says “LOL CONDOMS USE IT” with a screaming dog.. that looks like David. Oh my.

And look! First time you see the mysterious flower girl, although it’s just indirectly.. and you also get a John cameo. These characters are just taking up some space and stuff.

I was never fond of how Mike looked in panel eight. He looks too bulky.. and I feel I shoulda done the action better for this page. It played out well in my mind.. oh well!

I never understood why they started taking attendance at pep rallies. (I fully understand not wanting to go.)

Time for a sneak peek at an all new movie, coming to schools near you!


Pok3mon 6 million!

btw, sonic theme:

Go, g-go, g-go, go, go
Gotta go fast
Gotta go fast
Gotta go faster, faster, faster, faster, faster

Moving at the speed of sound (make tracks)
Quickest hedgehog around
Got ourselves a situation
Stuck in a new location
Without any explanation
No talk of relaxation

Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t blink
Don’t think
Just go go go go, g-g-g-go, go


Sonic is on the run
Sonic, he’s number one
Sonic, he’s coming next
So watch out for Sonic X

Gotta go fast, Sonic
Gotta go fast, Sonic
Gotta go faster, faster, faster, faster, faster
Go, g-go, g-go, go go go go
Sonic X
Gotta go faster
Gotta go fast
Gotta go faster, faster, faster, faster
Sonic X

@ Macgyver Adrian Caboose: That’s the Sonic X theme. Yashy seems to be singing the theme from the old SatAM Sonic cartoon from the ’90s, whch goes:

Blue streak, speeds by
Sonic the Hedgehog
Too fast for the naked eye
Sonic the Hedgehog

*Sonic, he can really move
Sonic, he’s got an attitude
Sonic, he’s the fastest thing alive

Look out when he storms through
Sonic the Hedgehog
Don’t doubt what he can do
Sonic the Hedgehog


He’s the fastest thing alive
He’s the fastest thing alive!

besides the sonic reference, mike was kinda ninja in this episode. but epic fail at the end, ninja’s don’t get caught.

I think you did the action just fine, if not quite well compared to other romance webcomics. It normally looks kinda casual. XD On a side note, I’m wondering exactly what it is that Condoms use. Curse me for always wondering about things I don’t know or understand. >_<
And finally, that little “who’s that?” thing DOESN’T have Paulo this time. XD
