Hey wow! An update that's not ferociously late OR terribly rushed! AND I ACTUALLY LIKE IT! What is this sorcery? (an actual day off from work, THAT'S what it is)

But yeah, I really like how this page turned out, even if the light and shadow in that last panel was a BEAST to do. Next time Megaweapon appears, he's gonna have a different hairstyle, 'cos those highlights just get harder and harder to do with every page.

As always, The Killer Station of Deadly Doom is all new, and I suggest you go vote and read it. Otherwise, THIS will seem even more unfunny than it already is.

(Oh, and speaking of incentives, I updated the Incentive Gallery with all the recent pages, just in case anyone missed the previous incentive in all the update delays)

Pretty sure we all knew what kinds of trigger words it'd use. :D
Also, I think the last panel looks good. You can almost feel what he's feeling at that point. And then you grin manically (or is that just me?)

Incentive: Ichabod with apples is like The Doctor with jelly babies, except he just eats them himself.
(Reminded of a scene, I think it was in The Pirate Planet, where the Doctor asks Romana where she got jelly babies from, she says the same place he does - his pocket)

Also, congrats on being in the best rated comments so many times on Sandra and Woo (or so your photobucket tells me)


In unrelated news, I'm heading to my first anime con tomorrow... Wish me luck/pray/something


Blitzkrieg1701, March 16th, 2012, 3:31 am


Thanks. I really tried my darnedest to up the detail on that one. It was a lot of extra time, but I think it was more than worth it. (and, actually, I'm filled with the counter-intuitive urge to hug the little brat)

I like to imagine that's why Ichabod wears that big jacket so much: lots of space to hide fruits.

Actually, the Sandra & Woo thing is kind of old I think the "rated comments" thing only covers the previous week or two) I only loaded it on Photobucket just now to test something with the uploader that was giving me trouble.

Oh! And good luck at the con! Don't die!

Hug? Yeah - if I thought he wouldn't hurt me in some way.

Also, my opinion is that last page he was actually looking for an apple when he noticed that the bag of lighting crystals was missing.
(Also, his pockets are bigger on the inside! We are getting more connections between him and The Doctor/Time Lords)


I'll try not to die at the con.

Comic: You can always have Jenna play "hairstylist" with Megaweapon. He'd be far too scared to oppose it, and so she'd get carried away and almost shave him. He may then decide to just shave himself anyways, assuming he cares about that sort of thing.
Incentive: Huh, no comment.
Meme: If you were going for maximum memeness, I think the second and third panels should have been "I will take an apple... and EAT IT!". But that's just me.

Here's my idea regarding hair: originally, I was thinking he got his unique hair color from his dad (who presumably had hair at SOME point) but now I think I prefer the idea that his hair is naturally white like his siblings, but he colors it just to be different.

...only problem with that is it means we'd have TWO white-haired, green-skinned little boys in this comic, and that might be pushing it.

so awesome!


Blitzkrieg1701, March 18th, 2012, 12:30 am


Thank you! I try my best!


Seros Senric (Guest), March 18th, 2012, 3:46 am


OK, I survived the convention. Pity about the rest of the world...

I was thinking of maybe writing up stuff about what happened, or I could watch some of the anime I really shouldn't have bought...


Blitzkrieg1701, March 18th, 2012, 6:54 pm


Is there any other kind of anime? :)


Seros Senric (Guest), March 18th, 2012, 9:55 pm


Yes. There is other people's anime, which you didn't have to spend money on to watch it :)


Blitzkrieg1701, March 18th, 2012, 11:18 pm


Well said.
