Hello everyone, it's that time again~! All of Issue 3 of my webcomic "Keeping Up with Thursday" is getting the reboot and renovation project treatment. Pages will be spruced up, cleaned up, and either redone entirely or simply re-edited to make sure everything flows a little bit better. Two years after it's initial arrival in June 2011, my webcomic has undergone a big change in art design and program tools (and skills) which could sincerely help bringing about a new audience.

Too much talk and poor Milon is the first to feel the effects of the rumbling mountain beneath him. What could this mean?

...Only one thing. And boy did this page receive another big change and overhaul. Milon getting better (well, in terms of not looking silly this time around) to set up the danger about to happen.

Besides the fact Horace is brave enough to push Patrick's buttons. xD

Hmm been seeing you alot on the webcomic groups I have been joining, desided to take a look through yours looking pretty good. Check out mine if you get the chance.

I'm in one too many. x__X Once I get money, I hope to advertise on a more broader level, though I might still post pages on dA on occasion. :)

Sure, I'll check yours out. :) Thank you for the support.

no problem glad to see someone else doing the same.

Whoa, stuff's happenin' here. Did they talk about escaping at one point and we just missed it? I'm still trying to figure out how they got outside and didn't try to take off. Hopefully this all becomes clear in the coming pages.

The issue takes place a little while after the previous one, and the plan to escape is mentioned actually on page 13, which I am actually gonna work on in the next day or so. I might sacrifice gags for explanations, and find some way to work that into the dialogue.

Also, I got an error message opening up your file. ): "Unrecognizable file format."

Good, I'm starting to scratch my head on things, cause it has this feeling that we went from point A to point C by skipping over B.

You have Flash MX right? I downversioned it to MX 2004.

I got carried away with the new look, I probably should've emphasized that they were escaping. D: I was worried though that the pacing would've been too slow to keep them chattering about longer. I'm thinking around page 13 and 14 ought to explain the events, hopefully. I still got plenty of pages left to use. :)

Yes, I have Flash MX 2004. :/ It won't open it up. The same thing happens when Ivan used to send me stuff from 8 to work with the one I got. I wouldn't know at the moment if maybe I'm using something else, but the computer seems to recognize it as thus.

Yeah, clarity in storytelling is also VERY important. At the end of the last issue they were trapped inside and imprisoned looking to dig a pool for orphans, and then in the next issue all the sudden 2 of the characters are outside and now there's talk of an escape that had never been spoken about before, so that's why there has a feeling of a big chunk left out in the middle somewhere. Sure, you can jump ahead in the near future, but putting a narrative talking about the passage of time would work wonders. Maybe they were let out to do work on the surface under close watch of the weasels or something would have filled in those missing gaps for the reader. You could have put it to a mini montage type thing that panned out in a page and then you could have started at the point you did in this issue afterwords. Instead we were kind of left wondering "Hey, how did we get from here to here all the sudden, and if A is true where's B?", etc.

As for the file. I don't know what's going on on your end. I saved it down as MX 2004 and it even showed me what it did with my beautiful *sob* lighting effects *destroyed them*. But that was only for the file i was giving you, I still have my original. ;)

:) I'm so used to people saying I take too long, or went in too deep that it became TL;DR a few times. xD Though that was RP, and none of the folks there were too good. I'll remember this though. :)

I'm thinking it'll transition to the other prisoners like Svenn, Horace, Milon, broken and battered, discussing how the plan should've worked. The way I imagined it was that, they couldn't find a way to unlock the hinges from the front door, so through the night they attempted to dig a hole through the ceiling and were gonna help each other up. Horace's opener and Patrick's speech is what held them back from a clean getaway.

lol. xD Well, the bad news with this too is that, apparently the post office dun goofed with my friend Ivan's Flash 8 CD he was gonna give me. It's been about two weeks now, and he's out on a summer retreat. I'm gonna assume it got lost along the way, and Ivan's too pissed to really try harder. So it is a bit of a loss on all our parts, especially mine.

Welp. Flash 5 it is, I suppose. Or 6. Whichever version I got.

Yeah, you're now telling a story for the peeps and it's quite different than role playing as you got to fill us in on what's going on. To me, it never felt like an escape attempt. It felt more like 2 dudes just hanging out, shooting the breeze without any idea how they got there in the first place. There wasn't any sense of urgency that an escape attempt should have. Once they got out they should have been helping the others and racing the clock to get away from there so they could get some distance from the place before they were discovered that they were gone.

That sucks. The post office occasionally fucks up. Wish you got it then I could just send the file as it is and you'd see everything. You probably don't have MX or else you would have been able to open up the file I sent you.

I had to work the question of Horace's nature into the story. ;D You were the first to bring it up, and soon others followed suit, so I figured it was the best route to persue. Plus when writing the story, I wanted a theme to occur gradually over the course of the comic on the nature of lying; to fool or be fooled. It was a risky move, but like I said, pages 13/14 will amend this issue. :)

Yeah. :/ Alas... ): ...Well, if anything else, maybe just a .png picture of it perhaps? If you want to, that is.

Okay, this are mice, but the style of your characters just reminded me of an old Jump'n'Run-Game that I loved to play when I was young! --> Jazz JackRabbit 2 ! :) see intro: [link] :) and I just LOVE this game!

Nice comic, good work! :)
Ari-Dynamic's avatar
I love that game! x3 I've never played the real version though, I only have a demo that came on an educational 100-on-1 CD thing though, but it was great. 8D

Thanks so much! :3

(If you haven't played Jazz Jackrabbit 2, you should. It's much fun and you can download it for free nowadays. ;) )

ps: faved. ;)

The illastations in this comic actually look quite good. :)
Ari-Dynamic's avatar
I'm gradually getting there. xD I'm nowhere near perfect.

I'm just self-learning based on what I read constantly from Marvel and Boom! Comics.
David31's avatar
Ah Boom! If they're carefull, Disney could very well buy them out next. :D
Ari-Dynamic's avatar
lol, I doubt it. xD

However, if they buy KUWT, I'm gonna make sure my iron fist is all over my comic. xD

I will not give up Patrick's infinite cussing, or sexual advances towards women which are often 88% successful, or... *rolls out a list* Nuh-uh. xD MY TERMS, BOOM! MY TERMS.

Label these comics A for advance then. :D
