Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great week thusfar.

This one started out giving waaay more away than it does now. I wanted to show certain moments in their past together, but I realized that it was probably explaining a lot more than I wanted it to, so I switched some of the dialogue out, and changed exactly what was shown. Now you can get the sense of the time they've spent together without everyone figuring out everything :) That's one of the problems with having clever readers, I have to be ridiculously vague so that you guys don't get everything already. If Martian Samurai is still reading, he knows what I mean ;)

There might be some news written shortly, just need to confer with June about it :)

Take care and have a great weekend! We'll see you on Monday.

I've been working hard, trying to lvl up my drawing skills lately. I know I'm far from perfect, but I hope that my efforts to learn how to draw are starting to show.

I don't have much for a vote incentive this week, but I did draw rob and john in panel 4 in an alternative way. I decided to go with the one here, but I put the alternate one up for incentive. So I hope that you enjoy! Rob's a lot more "predatory" in this one Any way, here it is!


Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

And now, back to playing WoW - yes, I'm addicted again.....ooops!!! :D :D (I am having lots of fun!!)

I'm playing a Night Elf Mage on Lothar named Skræl if anyone cares/wants to say hello!

Please tell me that's just how Thomas is in Robert's memories, because there is no way he could be THAT derpy and yet survive the zombie apocalypse. XD I mean, his face in the second panel, especially given the situation, is just hilarious. If he were actually that derpy, he wouldn't be holding off Zombie Robert from breaking down the door.

Wait, if Thomas is derpy in Robert's memories, then what is Robert like in Thomas'?

Just open up the door!

@Nightsky - Robert is DEFINITELY remembering him a lot more derpy ;)

@Ghost - Thankfully he didn't, or we wouldn't have much of a story :D
LunarisStarchilde (Guest) edit delete reply
so if Thomas is derpy, does that make Robert Twilight or Celestia?

I have to assume that's MLP talk...

"Were not unreasonable, I mean,
No ones gonna eat your eyes" Ha! I love that song.

The only thing i can believe about this is him picking his nose while discussing enlightenment

@Tom - Me too! When we saw him live, we sang along with it :D

@Guest - That might have been more realistic than his recollection in the other panels >.>

well I do like the newer version better. If you think about a play, with the characters on the stage, Robert is turning his back on the audience. Also because they are seemingly closer together on the old panel. John's defense looks weaker. With them farther apart the threat level looks higher because john is defending when Robert isn't yet in range to attack. Robert looks more likey to surge forward.

The only fix I think is John's left hand in the bottom panel. the thumb looks dislocated. In the palm forward defensive posture the, the base of the thumb isnt below the base of the wrist. If you think of the hand as a square the thumb is off the side of the bottom corner. Of course If I were to draw it I'd end up with mushy lumps on the end of the arms.

Nice derpy is definately the way to go.

Aww Skrael don't you know Caelestraz is the server to be on lol

I love the stick people holding hands around the Globe. This should be modified into a TOGM Logo with the tops of their heads bitten off and bleeding.

I can see it's no mistake Robert Included a Crown into the logo, His plan for world peace would obviously have him at the top, even before his brain pyramid came to be.

@just_idd - I think the new one is an improvement too ;)

@Sooty - I can't even remember the server that I played on, but it was pretty cool... until I left :D

@T.Gatto - Oh ye of little faith ;)

Did Robert's experiment lead to the zombie apocalypse itself? It sounds like something that could have. Everyone being zombies is certainly a sort of world peace.
I love derpy Thomas!
Asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
I love derpy Thomas too! I guess some of the people took a few zeds out before converting.
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
So when do we find out what reason for sparing Thomas was more important than true Enlightenment?
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@PhilC - A strange sort of world peace, but world peace nevertheless... except.. not.

@Asheswillfall - They did, definitely ;)

@aok666 - Hopefully by 300 ;)
Asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
When do we get to find out what the experiment was?
Krimson (Guest) edit delete reply
Looks to me like robbie was trying to make some sort of Hivemind or shared intellect experiment :P but mabye thats me just being crazy.
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@Asheswillfall - Specifically laid out? After 300, before 375 :)

@Krimson - You got that from a bunch of happy people standing around a globe? :I

Unfortunately I'm on Bloodfeather, Skrael, so I can't greet you without Real-ID :)

On the comic: LOL, Derpy John is Derp...
still wondering what that "Enlightment" is about... way to keep up the suspense... good job :)

EDIT: I liked the more predatory version of Robert more :)
Asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
I was on Ravencrest, but one could always make an alt on another server :)

Kirsten (Guest) edit delete reply
and a PERFECT use of that song quote!
of course we all knew that Robert was either zombie 0 or close to it.. he is after all the ONLY one at his level!
Magravan edit delete reply

@Muchacho NL - What's Real ID? And that was Derpy Thomas :D

@Asheswillfall - Well that's one option :)

@T.Gatto - Thanks for the avatar!!

@Kristen - I love getting to work it in there occasionally.. I love JoCo :D
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
My crazy theory is that he tried to achieve apotheosis by eating other people, but since his experiment needed most of humanity just to get that far and didn't succeed long enough to sustain it, the world's only hope now is successful human cloning. Which Thomas has been playing with.

Magravan: RealID is where you instead of make friends with a server character you played with, make friends with his/her accountname (usually your registered email address) so you can see when they're online even if they're on different servers or even playing Diablo III instead of WoW.

EDIT: Ughh, my mind is really in the gutter today... I had to re-read that last post twice, because I thought it said "Eating out people" instead of "eating other people"
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
U know feminist frequency who thinks that girl is sexy. I'd like to see her as a hot zombie babe
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@Guest - So far as crazy theories go, that one was not nearly crazy enough.

@Muchacho NL - Oh okay, that makes sense. I saw June playing WoW while I was playing Diablo 3 recently, it kind of freaked me out...

And the way you read Guest's post would have made it a lot more crazy of a theory :D

@Guest - No idea who that is, sorry.

Edit: Thanks to Google, I found out who it is. If she wanted to be, and June was inclined to do so, then maybe.. Otherwise, I'm guessing it would just be seen as more harrassment, and based on what I read, she's had quite a bit of undue harrassment.

I just deleted a huge comment question before i posted the comment. I mean why should i ask spoilery questions that might ruin the experience for other readers when i KNOW they shouldn't be answered anyways.

Why me so impatient? :(
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
I applaud your restraint ;) I have trouble with that a fair bit, and I don't take the high road nearly as often as I wish I did.
