Pep Rally — Page 3

Author commentary

Veronica: Panel four is meant to be a flashback.. they didn’t just randomly get out of the pep rally.. I shoulda emphasized that better or something. I normally do this kind of “error”.. while in conversation, I might draw a flashback scene.. and it LOOKS like a flashback in my head, but I gotta keep in mind that readers might mistake it for something in real-time. I still need to work on that.

Daisy’s pearl necklace disappeared on one panel! And man I can draw some awesome trumpets.

…. This made me wonder if I really am a cat XD lol. I despise pep rallies because of the loudness of them too…. They send me into panic attacks so I can totally relate to Mike.

I don’t get the bloody noses. I have seen Much more provocative things then that and I never started leaking. Actually, I think it clears the sinuses, like spicy Mexican food or the punch of wasabi.

uh, when u get Hny, ur blood preasure is supposed to rise, so, yeah. the blood vessels in the nose are thin and delicate, so, they burst. (i can imagine Paulo drooling and panting like a dog)

…Okay, and I know someone else who hates pep rallies partly for the music…and while I’m not a big fan of the school song, myself, um…I’m still one of the people HAPPILY making loud music…


…Blood beard? Wow.

Pretty ironic that while Mike is sensitive to loudness, Lucy is half deaf.

I’m beginning to love this comic. My exact reaction when the music started was “Oh my god, that’s me!”

I find it funny how so many of us can relate to mike pep rally’s suck because they r so loud and boring I can’t stand really loud noises all that much when it comes from living things but things like guns I don’t have a problem with it

In my opinion, this particular page really helps to show the contrast between Mike and Lucy. I love it.

Those were trumpets? Are you sure they aren’t saxophones? XD And I had no trouble realizing that was a flashback in Panel 4. Or is it just because I’m really genre savvy because I spend my life doing things that involve fiction? XD

If anyone is wondering why Mike hates pep ralys and loud sounds is because he has extreamly sensitive hearing.
