Episode 73
<Ep72 | Archive | Next> September 1st 2019

A talky episode, with very simple backgrounds. I tried to keep things interesting with different angles and interactions, but the focus is on the dialogue, so hopfully that is natural and effective enough.

Last month I had the idea of Percy's cat being a girl, and I liked the idea so much I kept kicking myself for not thinking of it earlier. Well, I was checking out the old episodes the other day and I realized through the entirety of the comic's run I have never actually refured to her using any pronouns at all! As with all things, it's not canon until it's canon, so I'm making the decision now! The next step will be to name her x'3


A tip of the hat to my Patrons!

Big dog and Jet's face with the "You're challenging me?" part XD
Aw, Lil'dog supporting the fishes! :)
It's always good to use the write wording when talking out loud, Percy. 
Nicely done with this chapter. :)

Dude this page made realize just how fucking good you are with dialogue. Yours flows so smoothly and like I could hear it being actually said which is something I always strive for in my dialogue! Not to mention that you always keep the actual page interesting to look at with you dynamic poses and expressions this comic always is just,, so quality,,

oh gosh! haha, thank you so much! >w< often my scripts start out really monology, but then when i start putting faces to them i realize they wouldnt talk like that, and they just sorta find their voice! i'm glad it sounds natural ^^;;

This page was worth the wait! Even for a episode focused on dialogue, the dynamic poses and interaction kept it engaging. Also, I like how the conflict between truths and ideals is beginning to show itself.

Looking foward for the next page! ^-^

LMAOOOO i love the faces firedog and jet make to each other when percy first challenges them! your expressions are always gold.
the scene change with the lightning and the silent panels of everyone running thru the rain alongside percy's monologue are stellar. i love the composition of this page overall, its just very immersive
its great that youve gone and given a plasma grunt a character arc like this, it really helps add to the overall conflict to see him struggle with his beliefs and motivations. i cant wait to read the next chapter!

thank you so much! i really loved that exchange between Jet and firedog too, >w< and i got the idea for that outdoor scene when it rained super heavily one day and i thought, hey legendary thunder dragon deserves some stormy weather! but how can i show it's raining if everyone is inside! i know! i'll just do a cut to what bianca's up to! inspiration can hit anywhere ^^
