Gorgeous, well drawn, expressive, well written, and the lighting and panel setup is beautiful and organized. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>


I don't mean to be rude, but if Binti wasn't familiar with the concept of a Dad, wouldn't she recognize "Dad" as a name rather than a title like "Mom"? And then just be confused when she finds that their patriarchal figure is male?

I know it's a seriously small thing, and it's a cartoon, but it does seem mildly forced. I can understand though that her understanding it this way might save time, and she's an animal and thus the translations can be more specific, but I feel like there might be a better solution to it.

Well, I'm sure she would have noticed their reference to "dad" as a figure. She didn't ask "who's Dad"; she asked "what's a dad". Just like you'd ask "what's a lamp?" or "what's a rock?"

Thank you for the critique, glad you like the page.

Correct, that was due to a phrasing mistake that I made, that was already pointed out a couple times:……
It should have been "Wait before our Dad.." instead of just "Wait before Dad".

I'll make sure to change it as soon as I have a second :)

Questo fumetto è una meraviglia assoluta, un lavoro stupendo meraviglioso migliore di DeviantArt, un fumetto bellissimo in lingua inglese, molto ma molto e molto bello, grafica bellissima, questo fumetto è bellissimo, i personaggi hanno uno stile di disegno molto bello, molto bello e molto migliore (se è possibile dire)!

Io vorrei molto disegnare disegni bellissimi come questi se riuscissi a fare queste meraviglie, poi parteciperò e mi verranno esposte dei miei disegni a una mostra dei ragazzi disabili, una mostra dove saranno esposti dei miei disegni raffiguranti personaggi che conosco e cose originali!
Questo fumetto è uno dei migliori fumetti italiani di Deviantart in Italiano!

Fun fact: when you reread this comic and take the link to this page from last page, the line in panel 7 says "Wait 'till Dad hears this!"
And if you then refresh the page, it says "Wait 'till our Dad hears this!"
Meaning you can see the old and the new versiom of the dialogue at the same time! XD

could someone possibly explain why is the lake water so bad? im guesssing that the flamingoes polluted it but i may be wrong,,
LauraRamirez's avatar
in case you're still interested in the answer, on page 115-116, it said in the description that the lake is actually salty, yum! :XD:

Oh my, ‘from fun to feels in a second’ is a very accurate description for this page! I can easily see why the wild dogs are your favourite characters – the pups’ faces are hilarious! :D Also, you did a really good job with Binti’s body language, she is very expressive even without saying anything in the several first panels.

It’s nice touch how Binti cannot grasp the concept of having a father because in case of leopards, only mothers take care of cubs, but it’s also completely heartbreaking. :(

“What’s a Dad?” Ouch....
Let me tell you I just binge read the whole comic and is awesome cant wait for more!

Everyone comments how tragic it is for her to have no dad, but chill, for felines (minus lions) it is 100% natural to be raised by one parent XD

Okay I have a question.

Why have you been marking these pages as updated? Ever since page 127 I believe, I have seen every single page since then show up twice in my notifications, with the second one being "edited", though I cannot see any actual changes. This isn't happening with Chakra, only Africa. I'm confused.

I hope I don't sound rude.

In the description of this page is the explanation of the update of this page in particular. Hope it helps c:

Che carino, non sa cos'è un papà (come la maggior parte dei felini, eccetto quelli che vivono in branco, cioè praticamente solo i leoni) <3
Un'altra pagina favolosa!

A dad is a paternal figure...

In your case, your dad is also your potential killer. >~>

I don't know if it was ever stated out right but i dont think Chui us their father if he was there would be no reason to kill them. With big cats in general the males dont tend to be a threat to the cubs of females they've mated with.
LadyTeaTime's avatar
Chui isn't the father. When you first meet Chui he told her he was glad to see that she wasn't pregnant. When asking how her cubs were she told him that it wasn't any of his business since they weren't his cubs. Africa -Page 40

He made it known that he would have preferred if they were, then made a sly remark about her keeping an eye on them. He even attempted to kill them after Chui won by cheating in a bet of who could get the bigger horn without killing or harming their victim. Africa -Page 92 :)
