Happy Day After Hallowe'en!

If you happened to miss it, we posted a picture yesterday for Hallowe'en that June spent a lot of time on! Just check the previous strip if you want to see it ;)

With regards to the strip, we are seeing that R.Z. has a bit of a crush on Sylene :) This was one of June's suggestions, and the Category 6 zombie was based on my son declaring that he was at least a 5... No definitive answer on the test result though.. I'm debating on whether I want to stick around for 1 or two more scenes with these two, or moving to the next scene... Do people want to know whether he's officially a Three now?

Annnnd Hallowe'en... It was pretty successful, and we had a few of the younger trick-or-treaters leave the house going "He gave us a Ring Pop!" so I'm pretty pleased with that... We got more little kids than I expected though, so I had to resort to our "Tub'o'candy" instead after a while... But it's our first Hallowe'en here, and it's good to know what kind of expectations to have for next year...

Unfortunately, having worked a 12 hour shift in the morning, I was burnt by the time that people started coming around, so I didn't end up dressing up at all.. In fact, I techncially went as myself, since I hadn't even changed out of my work clothes ;)

But I handed out candy, so I at least mustered the energy for that ;) Oh, and some punks threw eggs at kids while they were on our porch. That kind of sucked. My son was sitting outside handing out candy while we watched from inside the house (where it's warm! He's crazy!) and I heard them making some commotion, so I went outside to make sure he was safe, and saw a broken egg shell around the porch.

Not a huge deal, but I feel bad for the kids who were being harassed... Ahhhh, the follies of youth ;)

Anyways, hope you guys enjoyed the comic, we'll see you on Thursday.

Oh, one last thing, June wanted me to say that if, under some circumstance, she got sick or something and we weren't able to post a real update, she wants to make me my 'Two Brigade' which would feature Copy Pasta characters / backgrounds with non-canon dialogue for the sake of having something to put up.

I encouraged her to work on the buffer. :)

As promised, a link to all of the Wow-TOGM-Halloween folk in the previous update!

Beth
Chad
R.Z.
Sylene
John

Sorry for the obvious screenshot/crappy backgrounds. I will get around to painting my own, I PROMISE!

PS Sorry R.Z. looks so goofy in Panel 3.. I knew something was off, but couldn't put my finger on it until it was too late. I drew his glasses far too small. Oh well. Imagine he's like cookie monster. :P

Did Magravan draw RZ's comic?

Magravan
No, but I suggested afterwards that I should have ;)
Skrael (I'm the artist)
I like how R.Z. is suddenly much taller. :)

awww.. RZ wants to date the crazy purple-haired psycho. That's so sweet :)
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@Skrael - That's easily done, really :) One set of jumbo sized legs, coming up!

@bbedlam - He also wants to take over the world, so I guess she's a good evil consort?

Titles don't seem to show up with this layout... :)

Titles aren't really needed to get the message across. ;)
I don't think you'll find anyone who doesn't want to find out if he's a three or not.
*Insert some random poster saying they don't here as a joke*
...Umm...okay, so, I don't think you'll find anyone who LEGITIMATELY doesn't want to find out. :P
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Oh, yeah probably... The thing is, it will be told eventually either way... The question is whether I should stick around here or move on to the next scene and come back...

I guess I don't see much point in waiting...
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Sure am glad that the art class R.Z. is attending is paying off!

I would not like to be told whether or not he's a three. I think, unless it's really uber important, leaving it a mystery is pretty cool for a while.

RZ and sylene... hot?

by the way how's that sketch comming?
Ant (Guest) edit delete reply
Stop apologising about the halloween pics, they are seriously great. You dont need to be exact wow to look like wow (it stands out for itself on that one for any wow player) and the artwork is fantastic. Would love to see a wallpaper or some such of Beth BE and Selene NE....err purely from an artist view of course.

Yeah that tier gear is one of the funkiest in the game, even the models of the gnome warlock and VW have it on. Though the destruction armour that has the spikes with the skulls impaled on it is a personal fave.

That's sweet, RZ has a crush on Sylene... reminds me of Baby Herman, from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, "The problem is I got a fifty year old lust and a three year old dinky."
Gotta suck to be a zombie and never grow up.
the_brigand (Guest) edit delete reply
BTW guys, Congratulations on your First Complete Year and Happy Halloween!!!
I'm sorry I missed it while I was on vacation. Here's to many much more successes coming your way!

Well, technically if R.Z. had his head put on an older, taller body it could just about work, just as soon as his maturity level catches up with Sylene's. His head isn't that much smaller than an adult's, and a new body fixes everything below that. Of course who's going to pay for/authorize the transplant?
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@model S - Read your email, dammit :) Alternate arrangements need to be made, I gave out the specifics in an email sent to the address you used when sending us your character.

@Ant - I think that she was very concerned about the WoW purists jumping down her throat for it not being exact... She was going for a WoW look, but not necessarily replicating the pieces exactly... And maybe the Beth and Sylene one could be turned into a Wallpaper :)

@Barra - Darn right!

@Guest - Also Darn right! :)

@the_brigand - Hahaha, I haven't seen that show in a long time ;) Thank you for the well wishes, it's been a great year, and we're excited for the future ;)

@Lunaroki - That's absolutely correct. Unlike TV, it would be VERY easy for R.Z. to 'grow up' in our storyline. He does have a bit of a gigantic head for a kid, and everything below that, as evidenced by Alexander, is kind of moot ;)

As for the paying for / authorizing, Beth has the means to do both ;) That's actually why R.Z. is in as good shape as he is despite being a 2 :)

I like the Beth one very much! I play WoW. In fact my main is a Blood Elf priest. She kinda looks like that but with short hair, same color :D I don't see it much though because I play shadow lol.
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Gotta love how you look in Shadowform regardless though :)
greengirl77 (Guest) edit delete reply
well, of course!
Now that some of the new spells are in and we have apparitions that start walking to the target, they kinda look like zombies, well...that is what the boyfriend calls them :D
P.S. I forgot to say, inquiring minds want to know how improved RZ's is!!
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Do they shamble? :)

I have to be honest, I don't think R.Z. wanted to be written anymore... I had a lot of trouble coming up with the writing for the next one..
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
^_^

i checked my mail and replied.

you guys are doing great the comic has kept me comming back every mon/thur since i caught up. keep up the great work.
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Good stuff :) I'm glad that you are still with us.. One of the things that you have to worry about is losing readers without any explanation... The best you can hope for is that readers let you know they are still out there ;)


For those who care, we weren't able to give model S the second prize of a custom drawing by June, so we upgrade him to a T-shirt prize.
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
as much as i'd love to see beth in haseo's first form outfit, a free TOGM shirt is awsome too.
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Model S : I may end up drawing it later on for fun. But I do need to get some school work done. :P

Oooh, so the brains didn't make him smarter, they just gave him testosterone! Maybe only ladies' brains make you smarter :p

i liked it. though i didn't understand the "six" part at first.
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@Dodom - Bwahaha :) Ole' Corpsey was a social recluse living in a bomb shelter, I'm guessing he wasn't the most macho guy on the block :D

@ArtistXXY - Ahhhh, I thought that we'd established the category system well enough by now that I could play with it a little, but I guess it's not that concrete for everyone yet... Hopefully it made sense eventually :)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
that would be epic june. you got my email right? incase you didn't i'm picking the group shot. as much as i want bunneh for the comments i'd get, i just can't say no to anything beth.
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Yes, I got your email :)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
that's good. i'll let you know when it arives.

Oh my. Wow. The test simply isn't capable of measuring how smart R.Z. is.

You realize I've caught onto you, right? At the end of the story, when all the conflicts have boiled down, R.Z. is going to appear like a TOGM-nibbling, midget messiah and blow everyone else out of the water. Under his enlightened, level-six reign, the brains will flow like wine and there will be peace on zombie-earth.

Just remember, I totally called it.
MatthewJA (Guest) edit delete reply
Well, I'm calling the "the last person you expect is human" theory.
Solem Saje edit delete reply
Solem Saje
Deal, but I don't know why Selene would be a human...
MatthewJA edit delete reply
MatthewJA
I think someone's human, at any rate
It's probably Robert or someone, and not Sylene... Look at her font. LOOK AT IT!
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@model S - I'll let you know when I send it hehe :) June's got me taking her out for some winter clothes shopping on Thursday, and then I'm volunteering on Friday... So I'll send it when I can find some time around everything else :)

@Solem Saje - :O You've unravelled my tangled web long before I've woven it!

@MatthewJA - The last person being John? I agree!

@Solem Saje - Really? She's the last person you'd suspect? :)

@MatthewJA - Her font is the same as John and Beth's isn't it? Robert's font is special... And obviously R.Z. and other lower levelled zombies have their own font... Personally, my money is on Alexander to be a human.
MatthewJA edit delete reply
MatthewJA
Well, I expect John to be human... if you don't you're really not gettin' it.
SOMEONE IS HUMAN that is not John or that dead guy, I'm sure of it
