Author commentary

Veronica: They go back in tiiiime.. to another world.

You see a cameo from a very amazingly amazing comic in this! Seriously, it’s like the best comic ever.. that being Lackadaisy! I don’t know.. since Mike and Lucy were going back in time, I thought it would be amusing for them to fall into the 1920s.. and that immediately made me think “.. Lackadaisywhoaaa”.. so yeah. I am rubbish at drawing the characters.. but yeah. Wanna see FRIGGIN’ AWESOME ART? Go to the Lackadaisy site or visit the artist’s DAland page. Enjoy your INSANE TALENT goodness. God Mike and Lucy look like BLOBS compared to Rocky and Freckle.

Also Yashika meets a tragic end. Poor guy.

You would know which one she meant by “The grey one” if you read Lackadaisy. Er…if you looked at the Lackadaisy gallery as well as read the comic.

I discovered and archive-binged Lackadaisy long before this one, causing me to constantly compare the two, so I always had this impossible wish for Rocky to suddenly appear in their universe… this comic feels like a dream! One of those dreams where things mix together, like being at school but having your parents lecturing you or something.

I was gonna put Rocky as my name…..he is by far the best character there is…no offense Taeshi…..

Well, crap.
I’ll set it to Freckle then. JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZ.

Apparently Carter has magical powers of win. Which makes this comic full of win. So, like, +9001 Internets for Taeshi…which is a grand total of….a lot……yeeeaaaaahhhh…..

I agree, fantastic artist the owner of Lackadaisy is. One of my other comics that I like to read. Of course it doesn’t update as often but the artist doing it probably spends about a week per picture! :)

Oh wow, Lackadaisy? That is one of the best comics ever! (Including this one, of course!:)) Rocky and Freckle look great, I hope you draw them more.
And it looks like Lucy’s got the hots for Rocky~ ;)
