Hey guys, hope you are having a good week! Mine will be muuuuuuuch better after noon today.

I have to be honest, I wasn't terribly impressed with the writing on this one. It just didn't seem to want to flow nicely. I tweaked it several times (Originally the last panel was just "I don't shuffle." or something like that...) but I'm still not happy with it.

You may or may not have noticed the store link. It's mainly just there for testing purposes right now, but I did finally put the Bunneh shirt up... It's still wonky, mind you, because Zazzle wants to take white and make it 'background' rather than keep it white. Any suggestions from people who know how Zazzle works?

This strip was important to show that Beth's libido has come about recently, and is not something typical of zombies. They aren't all frustrated, it just doesn't come up... Except for Beth :) It was also a case where the character rebelled against some of the writing that got taken out... I originally had Beth in a much more vulnerable position where she was suggesting that she'd be willing to change if it would make John like her more... This might happen in time, but Current Beth seems like she would be more likely to mock him for wanting her to be different than offer to change for him.

So, not happy with it, but it's done. It's not the first time I've settled, probably wont be the last time, but I assure it wont be every time ;)

Have a great weekend, and if you're Canadian, enjoy Victoria Day! Long weekend (or stat holiday pay!) wooo!!

Hi guys, hope you are all doing well!
I just wanted to publicly apologise to Magravan for changing the storyline by drawing something he hadn't intended. Let's all let him know, that if he wants me to draw something a certain way, he has to specify that in the script. :P Can't just go writing only the text words and leaving everything else up to me, unless he wants Beth to be a sex-crazed lunatic.

Maybe she channels me sometimes.... hmm...


Any way, not much to say, but I thought Beth was cute in Panel 3, so I made a soft-shaded version of her. If you're interested in seeing this, go here:

I think I might re-do the cast page in this style at some point. :P

Also, i tried the u-stream thing, but it kept on crashing on me. It was really breaking up my artistic zoning so I decided to cut it out for now. I'll try again later.

I have been preparing for years for the coming zombocalypse. 'Zombie lovin' isn't in ANY of my plans.

Note to self: revise survival manual with tips for safe sex with cute, undead redheads.

@Skrael - Meant the character, not the art ;) My understanding of Beth vs What I was trying to get her to say ;)

@Tom Day - She's got more shuffle than a typical zombie too :)

@Solem Saje - Might require a biosuit, but there are some advantages :D

@Alparrott - Dancing with the Zombies? :)

@Guest - Sadly, there is no 'May make you ill" warning ;) However, we CAN say "We haven't made anyone sick yet!" so far as I know.

I was giggling at the third panel and laughing at the fourth. If I may though, I think the flow thing you're thinking about might be fixed by taking out the "I'm back."
Anton (Guest) edit delete reply
LOL!

I love this webcomic, it's hilarious, the art is good and I find myself being able o love the characters.

Great job <3

@PixieSingsBass - It might be better without it, but the whole last panel was my solution for the trainwreck that I felt the original script was, so the frustration with the script goes beyond just that part.

@Anton - I'm glad you're enjoying it! Do you have a favourite character?

The Guest was me >_>

I didnt puke, but I sure don't feel so hot XD

Punishment from above, wether it be gods will or the brain (me) that let it happened, its all punishment from above


lol
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@Barra - Totally planned, and entirely not based on a combination of Beth's increased libido and June's drawings *cough cough*

@Ferix - I'm pretty sure that divine punishment should be a little more impressive than a bout of nausea ;)

Beth's libido is directly related to her being a redhead. It's a scientific fact that redheads are sex-crazed! A fact I say!

That said, I'm glad you changed the story. I can't see Beth being the type of zombie who would change just to make John like her. She seems too independent for that.
Aerix Spades (Guest) edit delete reply
lolz!
Looks like her hoomanity grew when she kame in contact wif John, nya! ;p
Ah she doesn't zombie-glomp him though, minya! "^w^ If her straightforwardness keeps growin'2, mrrrf! ;p

*Ah hope

@bbedlam - It makes me happy that I feel I know the characters well enough to be able to make that call ;)

@Aerix Spades - Hopefully she doesn't ;)

when are u guys going to add robert to teh story
Syaoran (Guest) edit delete reply
Well that's spiffy. John probably hit the nail on the mark. Peeeen- sounds about all Beth would go after in her 1-2 days. Haha. Jk jk, Beth is classier than that, they'd probably come flockin' to her! XD

Oh and on the U-stream problem. I haven't personally used U-stream, but I have used Live-Stream (Just to be an idiot with friends.) and it works pretty good for what you were planning to do with U-stream, might wanna give it a gander.

Beth is simultaneously freaking me out and turning me on.

@me - Adding Robert to the story presents some problems. Namely, he's a genius on unparalleled levels. When he's introduced, I have to figure out how to write a guy who is considerably smarter than I could ever hope to be... But specifically, he will be added when he's necessary to the plot... Right now, the world that John inhabits is still very much a small sphere... He doesn't really have the means to waltz into the Office of the Five ;)

@Syaoran - That's actually what she ended up using, I believe.. And as for Beth, let's just say that she has a number of urges towards John, and hasn't really acted fully on them yet ;) She's a pillar of restraint.

@Lunaris_Starchilde - That's good, that is what she does to John too.. :D

If we must think about zombie loving, you must answer: are they warm?

*shudder* Now I know how Medusa felt looking into the mirror ;)
Degas (Guest) edit delete reply
Pardon the guest post. I'll get registered, subscribe and post again when I get caught up (posting on 1/13/11). Just couldn't resist: Throw Beth in a hot tub for a couple hours, that'll warm her up :D Oh, and is it wrong that I'm now "shipping" Skrael and Beth?
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
Haha.. I don't think warmness is the issue... It's the "Made of Zombie" that presents some problems ;)

And yes, it is wrong. Horribly, horribly wrong. (But we wont tell anyone) :)
Skrael (I'm the artist)

@Degas I am really not sure that I could go down on a dead chick, imagine the smell!
OmegaUltima (Guest) edit delete reply
well, going by how it originally smelled...rotten sushi?

Probably best not to think about it ;)

I really liked this one, I'd like to see John play along with Beth in a situation like that. :) "I knew even death couldn't keep us apart, now come over here and give me some of that sweet stuff!" lol :)
Beta Maxis (Guest) edit delete reply
Rule 34 people! I'm sure that scenario exists. Probably OUTSIDE /b/ too.

Beth could teach you all, but she'd have to charge ;)
