I mean, Meagaweapon's abuse is bad enough, but what we've seen has mostly just been mindless physical bullying. But to straight-up tell your sweet little sister that nobody wants her around... SO. MUCH. HATE. Heck, even Layla seems to feel bad for Jenna now.

So, as I write this, it's 5 in the morning, I still have to pack for MAGFest, and I'm very sleepy. All this being the case, I had to skimp on a lot of details to get this page done on time (I really would have liked to insert some sound coming from the TV) However, I do seem to be getting depressingly good and drawing Jenna on the verge of tears. If that last panel doesn't break your heart, you don't have one.

Of course, there's also a new page of The Killer Station of Deadly Doom waiting for anyone who votes for Far Out There on TWC!


EDIT: There, I FINALLY got around to fixing the typo.

I can speak from experience that verbal abuse is often much worse than physical abuse.

Poor Jenna :( Layla should just give up on Kevin (or tell him off for being a jerk) and spend time with Jenna at least until Trigger gets back.

Incentive: "I'm nosy" is a very good reason for wanting to know something. And most likely a good quality for a nitpicker.
Also, she's got some good dynamic dramatic lighting there. How much do you think it would have cost to have it installed?

I really just wanted Layla to punch Kevin right then. Please tell me that the yellow gunk is going to fall right on his head (although that would be one more mess for the Captain and he doesn't look happy now).
Jenna doesn't deserve all this.
Also, just a little nitpick, but in the last panel I think the wording is a little off.

Seconding the dramatic lighting bit, it's amazing how a change in lighting can make a person so much more creepy.

As Void said, the wording is a bit off at the end...

But anyway, poor Layla! How can you not feel bad for her?

aqua (Guest), January 7th, 2012, 11:44 pm

@CarrotSticks because Layla has sociopathic tendencies and most bad things to happen to her can be excused as her karma catching up with her, but yeah you would have to lack any empathy not to feel bad for Jenna.

with all the mad scientists on board i wonder if Jenna's brothers can receive behavior modification units to make them nicer people

hehe error 409

Aww man! Cool discussion going on, and I was out of town for most of it!

@Seros Senric: EXACTLY! Biting like a wild animal can be brushed off as thoughtless aggression, but not THIS kind of abuse.

@Endless Void: Sadly, the gunk is wherever The Cap'n stormed off to. And you're right about the wording. Did I mention this page was pounded out at a VERY late hour?

@CarrotSticks: You mean Jenna? (Though I guess Layla deserves some pity too, for having to spend so much time with this jerk)

@aqua: I dunno. From what we've seen of these mad scientists (Tabitha excluded) I'm not sure they should be trusted with making anyone into a better person.

CarrotSticks, January 8th, 2012, 9:53 pm

I made a typo after correcting your spelling. Oh, the irony.
But to be honest, Layla is asking for this, except for the gloop to the face.

Blitzkrieg1701, January 8th, 2012, 11:08 pm

True, by all rights, Layla SHOULD have given Kevin a piece of her mind quite a while ago.

Indeed, who knows how long she can keep this act up?

Seros Senric (Guest), January 9th, 2012, 5:17 am

I'm trying to think how that with multiple people mentioning that the wording might be a bit off in the last panel, nobody mentioned that you said "though" instead of "thought".

But with the wording, I feel that someone like Kevin wouldn't really care if how he said something was the best way of saying it or not.

Blitzkrieg1701, January 9th, 2012, 6:01 am

Kevin might not, but I do, and I definitely didn't mean it.

CarrotSticks, January 9th, 2012, 10:28 am

Stop fooling with me! It's your comic, you can decide when she can't handle it anymore! *slaps you with a fish

Blitzkrieg1701, January 9th, 2012, 2:32 pm

...I deserved that.

Stefan (Guest), January 10th, 2012, 8:08 pm

That second to last panel should read "I thought you were playing..." rather than "I though were playing..."
Just sayin'...
