Not every chapter is filled with drama, I like the fact that things have gone back to normal for a bit. Though with Sue looking like that in the last panel I have a feeling that something is going to go down at some time and at some place…..

It would appear as if something is on Sue’s mind. My guess is that she feels uneasy that everyone is behaving now, and has no need to bring order to chaos, thus feeling unneeded.

Wasn’t there a chapter where an artist wanted to draw a picture of Lucy? Maybe that picture is in the art museum or at least a picture that somewhat looks like Lucy. An Sue doesn’t know if anyone else notices it and is unsure wether to bring it up or not. Mike apparently didn’t notice.

Comment ID #260884

OH MY GOD. Really guys, you don’t know that Sue is having difficulty thinking of how to interpret the art? Her quizical look and raised palm toward her lip with furrowed brows, looking over to Mike to possibly glance at what he’s written down, the way she responds with “Yeah…” When Daisy says it’s amazing, it’s obvious she’s not an expert at critiquing. Which is odd, since she directed the play, so one would assume she’d be good at the arts in general.

I’m hoping the ‘Critical hit’ is Sue finally calling Mike out on being the reason Lucy is gone. She pretty much did in ‘Study Buddy’, but that might have just been Mike imagining it with a guilty conscious.

Either Sue is feeling like a bitch for excluding Paulo like they did (although I highly doubt that) or she has had something on her mind that has been nawing at her for a while, judging by the way she is looking at Mike hint hint. But who knows. I may be wrong and just reading a little too deep into the story. :|

Abbey and Daisy seem to be the only ones who think they got they’re money’s worth from the exhibit so far, either that or Suzie’s still a little freaked out by Daisy’s reaction to that euthanasia chair. I personally think Daisy’s a little too excited.

I think Sue’s worried about Paulo and surprised about David. David has shown a lot of character development, in my opinion- he’s really started to catch up on levels of maturity. Perhaps Paulo will need to take some time getting used to this.

Anialator October 3, 2013, 3:27 PM EST.

Comment ID #260916

In the first panel with Sue you can clearly see that the piece of art she is looking at is evoking troubling or uncomfortable feelings. In her second panel, she appears to be concerned with Mike reaction (or more accurately, his lack thereof). In the third and fourth panels she’s caught off guard by Daisy interrupting her thoughts about the mike’s lack of reaction to the painting and then agrees with her half-heartedly, likely because something about the painting/mike’s lack of reaction to it is making her feel uneasy.

The artwork probably thematically reminds her of what happened to Lucy and she’s either found Mike lack of reaction to something that should be evoking something to be a sign of his lack of guilt or she could just be miffed about the fact that she didn’t learn anything from his reaction to the painting.

That’s just my two cents, though.

I think that all of this is just Sue being a not-very-in-character Sue, seeing as she is allergic to drama. When did she become so angst-inducing?

@Red_Fezz Umm yep no drama here. Just some building tension and awkward stuffs.

Carindel Girl October 3, 2013, 4:07 PM EST.

Comment ID #260920

I find it remarkable that people are so oblivious to other, more sensible, reasons as to why Sue seems to be thinking about something and then glances at Mike. What I think is that Sue, unlike the others, is still being pensive about what had caused Lucy to leave so suddenly without telling anyone. Honestly, it bothers me how she seems to be the only one to still worry about such things. So clearly, well atleast from I can tell, after Mike had admitted having something to do with Lucy leaving; it made her that much more intent on discovering what exactly he did. It probably bothers her that Mike seems completely unaffected by what happened when he was the closest to her, hence the uneasy glance towards him.

Then again, I could just as easily be thinking way too much about this. Sue may just be contemplating over which guy in the group has a nicer ***.

Also, apologies to whomever may have written something similar to me pertaining to this page. I don’t have the patience to read past the first few comments right now and instead decided to write down my thoughts on this page.

Oh my god! Is David behaving!? :O

Kingsley Payens October 3, 2013, 4:15 PM EST.

Comment ID #260922

@Turanis I would say that, but in comic time it’s been a while since Lucy disappeared magically. I think. But it would be really neat to see how Sue would react to the fact that it’s pretty much ALL MIKE’S FAULT Lucy disappeared. Especially since Taeshi, at one point in time, I do believe it was near the end of the chapter where Lucy confesses to Mike, said that (okay Taesh here goes nothing, I’m going to attempt quoting you with out messing up!) “In the original series, Lucy and Sue were close, so I’m going to…” in a nutshell, Sue was close with Lucy, so she was really mad at Mike when she found out that it was partially his fault and attempted strangling him. Anyone remember that? So anyways, Turanis, what you’re saying is prolly true, but it might be a bit late for it to be just that.

…Gosh darn, when someone winds me up, there’s no turning back. I mean, look at that paragraph!

Also: @Rubik you are one smart cookie-cake.

Carindel Girl October 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EST.

Comment ID #260923

The art looks a bit… different here with Sue… Like she finally got her own special/specific detailed design with her features, like with Daisy and her big, bubbly eyes. Her eyes are more oval-like and her face is a bit longer than others. Makes her look more mature compared to the others.
There’s an improvement with hands, too. Even though, they’re often strategically hidden, like in this page for instance, progress is still being made whenever they’re shown.

It’s nice. The art is gradually progressing every chapter, even every page. Keep up the good work, Taeshi! c:

Ok yeah, I think I read WAAAAY too much into it…

I’m still sticking with my idea but it does also seem that Sue is having a bit of trouble with the art.

Turanis October 3, 2013, 5:03 PM EST.

Comment ID #260932

Well, she can either be feeling bad for Paulo, or be thinking something’s off with Mike’s behavior (she was looking head in the first 2 panels, and then stood next to Mike as she kept looking at him afterwards).

OR I MAY BE LOOKING TOO MUCH INTO IT. She could be having one of those moments where she’s so confused that she ends up looking at someone else’s answer to get an idea what’s going on, I sometimes do that during my college lectures (I feel a little pathetic saying that now :/ ) .

But, I think I’ll go with my first instincts for this one (the Mike and Paulo ones). I’m probably reading too much into it, but that’s what my gut’s telling me, so :unsure:

Dat guilt trip.

Pyro October 3, 2013, 5:38 PM EST.

Comment ID #260934

Hm… I think I can conclude a couple of things from this page. 1.) Paulo did NOT imagine Mike and Sue’s whispered tones, and 2.) Mike pretty much DISSED AND DISMISSED Paulo, because judging from Sue’s expression on this page, the last two dashed bubbles from last page were Mike’s. If this wasn’t the case, she wouldn’t be looking thrown off or guilty on this page, much less looking at Mike like she has a bone to pick with him.

Sue’s pretty smart, so I think she noticed that something’s off with Mike’s behavior, specially after what just happened last page. The way I see it, the group’s always followed Mike and/or Lucy’s lead on things, ‘cause it revolved around them and everyone just went with it. And they never intentionally left someone out of the loop on anything, OR dissmissed them the way Mike JUST did with Paulo. Anyone that’s been dissed and heard it would be hurt, but for someone involved in the dissing to look thrown off by it or feel guilty? Sure, Paulo brought the cold shoulder on himself, yeah, but the way Mike went about it is unusual for him, and Sue noticed.

Sorry for the double post, Taeshi, but this page REALLY GOT ME THINKING (and it was too late for me to edit my other comment, so here I am). I mean, the whole situation with Mike and Sue’s convo about Paulo just felt so odd, and it was bugging me.

Subaru October 3, 2013, 6:10 PM EST.

Comment ID #260935

Yeah okay, so the big thing here seems to be the concerned, well more concerned than usual face Sue is making.
At first I thought she might be crushing on Mike, but nah. I think she’s still concerned about what happened to Lucy and how Mike hasn’t really gotten around to talking about it. I mean after all, Sue and Lucy are close friends.
I think Sue might be getting a little tired of waiting for Mike to talk about it, so she might have to choke him with that blue scarf again till his head near pops off, like during that study session held by Daisy.
At least Sue had the courtesy to wait for Mike to deal with it and make his own time to speak about it, but it looks like he’s all, but forgotten about it, and THAT my peeps, is what I think really concerns Sue.
As for Mike: you’re not the only one who cares about Lucy, so your acting that it’s all on you or you’re the only one carrying the weight is dumb. Everyone is carrying their own weight as well, like Daisy, Sue, and Paulo. Not telling them about it might save you, but it sure is hurting them.
That stint about you telling Lucy off how nobody would want to be around her becomes doubly ironic, because they do care about her in their own way. Just because that care isn’t obvious doesn’t mean they don’t care. There’s more than one way to care about something, Maishul or whatever your GF calls you.

guys, tell me if I understood it properly: in the previous page, in the panel in which there are sue and mike, they are whispering to eachother. in the next panel, paulo is imagining what they are saying, and he imagines it wrong.
is this right? or was that still something they actually said?
thanks for clarification.
also, what’s the dumb idea sue talks about??

My first thought was that she was crushing on (jacob jonathan lincold) ABBIE YOU KNOW THE GUY IN THE BIG OL FIRST FRAME but now, after a bit of comment reading, seems like she’s uneasy that no one is mentioning the Lucy thing whatsoever- though, did I just miss an important page, or is what happened to Lucy just a secret? It’d be an interesting idea to leave it unsaid until Sue yells at the people for ignoring it. That may be the… CRITICAL HIT 8-) 8-) 8-)

yeah that was awful. But either my lame not-even-a-pun is right, orrr I missed a page.

Way to leave Paulo behind. He probably doesn’t have the money to pay for a ticket in the first place. He was trying a bit to hard to convince everyone that he didn’t want to go to the exhibit if you ask me. It looks like Sue is starting to feel a bit guilty.

Comment ID #260957

Now when I think about it, is Mike reaaaaally caring about the whole gallery thing?
Maybe its just me but he is not even looking at the art, he just stares at his paper while listening to something that could be anything but school work, (nobody else is using headphones) like something private which is why he was so determined not to give to Paulo (Paulo would yell his secrets out into public if he found out) and then looked all crushed when it flew into the art exhibit…

Just saying… :x

Comment ID #260958

For all those theorizing on sue’s behavior and facial expressions this page. Recall that she asked Mike about his involvement in Lucy’s situation a bit ago, however she was cut off before she could follow the trail any further. I think that those who are saying she wanted to speak to him in private are correct. She wanted to follow up on her hunch, so was going to use the exhibit to interrogate him. However this seems to have backfired and now she’s debating whether or not to proceed and risk bringing something that is a private matter out in the open.

At least that’s my hunch, her face is less of the appearance of lovelorn and more the face of a detective hot on the trail of a mystery and deciding how to proceed next.

Sue isn’t staring at any of the boys. If you look closely she’s to the right of Mike. So she was staring at a painting in the first pannel she appears. Then she looks at the others because she ISN’T enjoying the paintings while the others seem to do so.

@EvilKitty3: It’s a type of device you can rent from more high-end museums that tells you about the exhibits as you walk through them. That’s why Paulo wanted to steal it earlier, so he could listen to someone explaining it all to him. Mike doesn’t need to be staring intently at the pieces if he’s listening to people talk about their history and design and whatnot.

@Cassidy: I really like the water colors, but I agree that I preferred the old coloring style. :/

@daft_inquisitor: I have to agree with your statement about the water colors, they are really pretty but yes I do miss the old style :)
@Taeshi: Would you ever be able to bring back to us this lost coloring style? :smirk:

Do you realise that it’s rather insulting to say that kind of thing? If you liked the old style of digital colouring better, then that’s OK, but be mindful that it’s very discouraging to a person who spends hours every day inking and painting these watercolour pages to see readers obliviously imply that she’s making a mistake in doing so.

Again, it’s OK if you feel like the old style was better, but be mindful of what you say.

i have to say @suitcase, your very assertive. when you have a problem with what a ppl say you acknowledge it in a respectful way. most ppl don’t do that, they just bite back….. thank you for being one of those decent ppl who don’t bite back at someone, rather if they were being rude or not. believe me, i had authors that barked at me even though i wasn’t even trying to be rude.

@SuitCase: I wasn’t trying to be insulting at all, I am sorry. I did however, take into concideration how much time she does put into this and I have been an avid reader almost since it came out, it is inspiring to see how much one person can do and keep something like this going! I have tried writing in the past and never accomplished as much as Taeshi has. Give her my regards to keep up a good work!
NOTE: I never mean any harm when I comment.

@SuitCase: As I said, I still like the new sytle. I never said it was terrible, I didn’t say I hate it, so I am in no way implying that Tae is wasting her time.

Just, as my personal preference, I prefer the old style. I don’t see any reason for someone to take offense to that, as again, i am in no way insulting the current style.

I think Sue is still thinking about the Lucy incident. I’m guessing she’ll be the first one to know why Lucy left.

The sad thing is Paulo is totally right. It’s not amazing. They’re paying to look at things which cannot have any significance to them at all, just because it’s supposed to be scholarly. They’re just there because they went along with the flow. I think Sue might be starting to realize this.
