Uh oh, pages are starting to get a little late again. Well, I've got tomorrow and Tuesday off work, so I'll try my darndest to get ahead of the game.

On a happier note, THE MIDDLE PANEL IS PRETTY MUCH THE BEST THING EVER. Try to contain your squeeing, people. TRY, at least.

Fun Fact: I made a conscious effort to draw the kids a little bigger than usual in that panel. Usually, I just draw them small enough for Tabitha to carry around, but since Tabitha's supposed to be one tall drink of water, it stands to reason that they'd looks less tiny next to some one else. (The better question: did anyone ever notice that Tabitha was supposed to be taller than anybody else? EVER?)

By the way, if you were wondering (and you guys are smart, SOMEBODY must be thinking about it), this little episode happens before the whole bit where Kevin and Megaweapon got their hearts and heads knocked around. Thus, for this story, Kevin's still a neglectful, self-absorbed jerk and Megaweapon's still a Tasmanian devil.

..and now that this is established, it's unfortunate that these kids stayed at the hotel during the mad scientist convention. I get the feeling Alphonse and Bridget would have enjoyed seeing Jenna again.

AND SPEAKING OF THAT (wow, lot's of commentary this time, huh?), there really must be some elaborate rules about guests not causing problems and equally elaborate means of enforcing them. There is just no WAY that Bridget wouldn't go bash Megaweapon's face in unless there was something really serious holding her back (Maybe the Hector Home for Mad Science exists in a state of temporal grace?)

Bridget is smiling :)
She must be happy that Alphonse is enjoying it.

I'd like to see something similar to the middle panel as one of the full page things after the story :)


Poor Jenna :(
Just when we saw things get slightly better for her, we go back to a time when they weren't.

Concerning Jenna, etc, not going to the Mad Scientist convention, well, they;d either not be interested or not be trusted there I would think.

Concerning lack of Bridget retaliation... I imagine the rules would only stretch so far. If Megaweapon threatened Alphonse, I don't see anything stopping her from causing grievous bodily harm.
Also, in that scene, she's being held by Tabitha. That probably helps with the not doing something that will get them kicked out thing.

Trying... trying... failing... THAT IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!

and then you had to go and make that last panel. Why can't anything with Jenna end happy?

I hereby declare this "JENNA'S LAW"

When in effect on anyone, no amount of effort will result in success of what you are really trying to get at that point in time.

Also result in unbelievable amount of guilt and extreme uneasiness should a person not be focusing on what they feel they should be focusing on, ultimately resulting in putting effort again.

May also cause devotion to uncaring persons/objects.

Cast page
We need more characters on the cast page. Jenna, Kevin, and Megaweapon at least. Their and Tabitha's parents would be nice to have too.

I'm suggesting this mostly because I know you have so much time on your hands and so little to do. (snark, snark)

Believe me, dude, I REALLY want to spruce that page up bad. It'll get done... around the same time the FAQ finally goes online. Hehehehe... *sigh*

As for all the concern over Jenna (which is very gratifying, by the way)... well, just read on, folks!
