A new week, a new batch of TOGM, served up hot and steamy... Yum yum!

Wow! That Chibi voter love that June did up was awfully cute. If you missed it, go back one and check it out... Unless you're horribly against adorable chibi TOGM people... If you're subscribed on Comicfury, you might even see your name!

This strip shows why Beth is hostile towards Sylene! Of course, it doesn't explain why she tolerates her in any capacity... But I'm sure that you guys will figure it out anyways, we've got some very clever readers!

This is another one that I had to swap a lot of text on. I wrote it one way, then decided to change it after I saw how the pictures came out. I think this is much better, and Beth's final line was a nice addition in my mind :) I picture her saying it with less than perfect sympathy for them ;)

Annnnd, we've decided that we're going to go to maybe 70-75 and then call it "Book 1", and start the next segment as Book 2... Work on the website redesign is going forward, maybe June will post the logo that she created. Also, I've got her hard at work on some t-shirt designs, but there are only so many hours in the day, and as always, the strips come first.

See you on Thursday!

I had a relatively productive weekend with drawing the comic. I'm somewhat developing a buffer, but it's a slow process. I did, however, make quite a few images for the website. Also, I made a little chibi thing, and I posted it. So if you missed seeing it, hit the back button. I have another one done that I will probably post at some point soon. This one I absolutely did not use a base for.

Any way, about the comic. Doesn't this throw a little light on the relationship between Syelene and Beth? Or perhaps it raises more questions. I know as James reveals the story for me, I'm always facinated with how things are unfolding. Of course, I pose a lot of questions, too. Hopefully not unlike the ones you may ask yourself. I'm a very analytical thinker, I believe. I'm also observant, and according to James, I have an inredible memory for details. So I like to think that I'm asking intelligent questions that will make him think about the answers, prepare him for your questions, and perhaps even make him consider details for future plot development as well. Only he knows if I've succeeded, however. :P

Well, now, THIS explains a lot. I'm going to refrain from speculation this time so I don't accidentally spoil the fun for 3 pages ahead... seems to happen a lot to me.

She's got to be thinking-If only I had waited and eaten their brains last. They would have been ONES!

Yah know I've been thinking. Technically intelligence wise I should be a three or even a 4 on my best days but...every few months...my heart beats. (Insane I know) It always seems to happen right as I'm going in for testing. Screws everything up. Well, at least I get occasional replacements. Hello middle management!-wow, I didn't realize I could still get this depressed.

Ooh, ooh, the moment before the dramtic reveal of Beth's adulterous ex! Now we need a face to place the anger that we all just suddenly realized we have for the jerk.

Haha wait a minute, there's going to be more male characters?! What is this??

Do they remember being human? Or do they have to be told this stuff after being Enlightened?

I wonder what Zombies have against decoration in their houses.

@MarshmallowGherkin - It's a tier program. If I make a certain amount on the tickets and the right guy goes down, then you'll both get a share of the pie... A bigger piece to the guy who actually drops the gloves and starts it, of course ;)

@Barrahir - Haha! Yeah, you and your psychic guesses ;)

@Two&3/4's - Beth only ever ate 2 people ;)

@JimiRaffety - You know what's funny? His 'code name' was Jerkface ;P I told June he'll probably end up some people's favourite character, for some reason ;)

@ShallowBay91 - They do have something of a memory, and the higher tiered zombies remember more. Twos don't remember much, Threes more so, Fours most, and presumably Robert knows everything.

@Jacob Gristwood - It certainly needs more! We had a very good Dun dun duunnn : comment ratio when we started off ;)

@Effigy_Power - They rent and have an ogre of a housing corporation ;) Our walls at home are fairly bare as well. It hasn't changed from White walls in the almost 10 years we've been here... We're looking forward to painting our new house some colours ;D

@effigy ... Comic's hard enough to draw right now, especially with all the angles .. don't need more things to draw like decorations to make it take even longer :)

Thats right! Holy crap. i wonder if the connection she had to them emotionally had something to do with the level of enlightenment achieved from eating their mediocre brains. Eh. More Togm please.
Barrahir edit delete reply
Barrahir
Well remember what she said before, she only enlightened two people, one of whom went on to eat moar brainz, and became a four. The more he ate, the more enlightened Beth became. So I guess her husband is a Four as well, and a pretty good one at that.

This zombie chain of advancement intrigues me. Like a...

Dear gods, the world ends because of a pyramid scheme gone wrong. The Zombocalypse was caused by Amway! (Ominous thunder.)

Is that really a surprise to anyone though? I'm pretty sure that's what the Mayan's predicted... Amway goes supernova and takes out everyone :)

You just explained things that have already been published... I don't think that they call reiterating past events 'spoilers' :)

But, thank you for playing! We have some fabulous parting prizes for our less fortunate contestants .. no wait .. we don't ..
:P
In all honesty, thanks for laying it out clearly for those who, perhaps, did not understand how it worked, Barra :)

I seriously watch too much TV, 'cause now it has me thinking they're sisters, or something. >_< (You know, hating them but putting up with them, the...'unique relation' between the three before, that kind of thing, it's all what you typically see. Ah, gotta love hate TVTropes... :P

Did Sylene not know her lover was married? I'm sure many cheaters present themselves as single when having affairs, and she is kinda ditzy, or maybe bubbly is the more appropriate word.
jochannon edit delete reply
The reason beth tolerates Sylene like she does - could they be sisters?
