I think zero fatalities is something to be proud of in any situation. Except winning in Mortal Kombat. :P

Your cars are really good, Taeshi. You should be proud.

Somewhat July 2, 2014, 1:10 PM EST.

Comment ID #283452

I still love to comic, but I really wish they’d go back to the old art style.
The backgrounds look so undetailed, and I KNOW Taeshi can do gorgeous backgrounds :/ everything just looks so thick and blobby.
However, the colouring is nice, but I wish the outlines were black and thinner, since it’s harder to see everything now :(

@Eko She went to go double-check that the car was locked.
Spoiler: Mike falls off a bridge, Lucy jumps out and saves him, the bridge was only two feet over a shallow pond, Lucy faints, everyone laughs, Lucy reunites with them all and introduces them to her life partner Georgia.
That really got away from me.
Pretty backgrounds, Taeshi. ^^;

@Eko: Daisy is next to Abbey, to his right, just below the frame (she’s short).

David’s comment RULES.

Haha! As I scrolled down? I was thinking “No fatalities” too!
Oh no, I… think like a dog? NAW
Just coincidence… :unsure:

Oh mike directly rushes forward o.o (well he (and daisy too) was already here, as was said by him on the last page)
And well done Paulo, you have done a very good job^^

Anyways, I have to admit, that place is pretty. I’m getting my hopes up for a drama-free trip, but for all I know, someone might find a tree that has a gnarl that looks like Lucy’s face or something. ‘scared of drama showing up’

We all know that Mike will, once again, nearly die. He’s gone down a waterfall and fallen off a cliff, so what will it be this time? Tree falling off him? Lightning? A turtle?

So they are going for a forest trip? Well good for them. They have been needing the fresh air (and I mean fresh since it’s out in the nature but not in the town).

Spoiler: They stay until dark but when they are going to head back they loose the path and Slenderman (Slendercat/dog/fish (don’t ask me why I put fish in there :P)) starts hunting. D:

And Daisy rushes off to leave Abbey behind and to follow along Mike’s side… but then she vanishes

Looks like Daisy decided to run on ahead. XD Be careful of weirdos, Daisy! And animals! And rocks! And watch out for that—oooo….

@Restos - You win the internet for throwing in Doctor Who. XD
Drama-free? These guys? Naaah. These guys are FULL of drama. Which is most likely why Sue sat it out.

Since Paulo did not park in a parking space, the car will be towed before they get back. Then What?

toydoc July 2, 2014, 7:59 PM EST.

Comment ID #283478

So were Paulo driving a illegally lifted SUV or is he locking the vehicle while on his knees?
Because otherwise they’re all about as tall as a 7 year old and the ride in question needs to be outfitted with running boards for them all to enter and exit it.
Either way, that is some wonky perspective and scaling of objects and characters.
A shame that is going down the toilet in the name of ~art~

Brasto July 2, 2014, 8:23 PM EST.

Comment ID #283480

I think the art on the page is really beautiful. Well done on the colours and such @Taeshi they capture the mood. Reminds me of when I used to go on big outings on my friends. :D Not a lot of comics really capture the moods in their scenes.

So what if perspective is a little off. This is still a really new art style for Tae so she’s not always gonna get it perfect. Cars are looking pretty sweet, though. Kudos to that.

Anybody else get the feeling Lucy is going to be here? :love: I will be so happy if she is.

Orrr… It could equally be Augustus and his gang of vagabonds. Just sayin’ >_>

I don’t think it’s very civil to write comments like that, Brasto. You are welcome to your opinion but there’s no need to exaggerate and mock. I’m sensitive to the criticism that you express and I can understand where it comes from — see my comment posted yesterday — but you do your cause a disservice.

Mike walks ahead of the group into the forest. And then out of no where an angry rinoceros came and gobbled him up…..FATALITY 8-D

I like you if you got the referance :smirk:

@Brasto I personally preferred the old art style, but that last sentence, just…Posted image
@Zone Huh. Didn’t even know what it was from, just have a collection. Don’t know a thing about Doctor Who, actually. Hehe.

David is going to get poison ivy. He’s going to pick it up and go tell every one hay this plant makes you itch if you hold it. Daisy is going to get a bunch of burrs and stuff stuck in her furr and cry. Mike is going to get mauled by a bear. Abbey is going to become king of the bunnys. Tess and Paulo are going to have sex behind a bush. Or there just going camping.

Blue fox July 3, 2014, 1:59 PM EST.

Comment ID #283497

Can’t believe I’m saying/typing this but I agree with david on the no fatality thing.

Otter guy July 3, 2014, 3:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #283498

I mean… I wuv the love-able pup 8-D
But I’m just waiting for everyone to regret letting him near a large fire…

Ha ha parking lot is full of black cars.
Just like IRL :D
Wonder if that means anything :O
Edit: I think this chapter will be pretty tamed though. It is called scenic route. This might be a kind of flashback arc
Re-edit: Yea they’re really starting too look like children

@Awesome Last time I saw the title “scenic route” for anything, it was a bloodbath. I have high hopes for this one though. 8-D

Wow, great job of capturing that lovely, wide-open feeling you get stepping out of a car after a long ride~

Did Soupy design your website? As someone who’s learning web design, I have to say, this website is very concise, well done, and innovative.
