Skye's important contribution to this part of the plot: stick her butt out and and nearly get it blown up. Clearly, I am getting good use of this character. Yes.

Oh right! Skye's a character who was in this storyline! Remember her? It's kinda sad that I'm having to pull a "hey, remember this character?" moment in a story that actually started out being ABOUT her.

But yeah, in cause anyone was wondering what happened to Skye after Trigger did his little Tarzan dive into the fray, here ya go. She's too sensible to just leap blinding from a REALLY dangerous height, so she's been taking the long way around. (And let's not forget, she's also trying to avoid those cops that both she and Astrid still seem to think are outside... SOMEWHERE)

Also, the thought occurs that smoking debris raining down from above is probably like a snow day for Stilez.

And last but not least, new Voting Incentive!

I would make one of those "person who has no idea what is going on has to guess what is going on in the comic based off this comic strip" kind of posts, but I kiiiinda know the characters so it wouldn't be fair.
I see you're stretching your artistic skills by drawing characters in odd poses... And just like your voting incentive, it DOES kind of seem like fan service...

There's a reason so many cartoonists just stick to the "two people sitting on a couch" format: actually getting human bodies to bend and twist realistically is HARD!

(and it doesn't help that this is another page I did without the benefit of a rough draft. It dawned on me at the last minute that this was a good chance to have Skye pop up again earlier than planed, so I had to whip up a new page on the fly)

Since you mention it, could you maybe put a guide for drawing/posing people on your Deviantart? I plan to do sketches for my group's D&D adventure (I'm the DM) but I am not the best artist. I especially need help with proportioning and drawing hands. (If you don't it's no problem, I know you are busy what with writing a full time comic!)

Yay for CarrotSticks posting!

Stilez can be easily amused.

Previous, it's always nice to see Layla with her dad.
Current, the book is almost always better. Except with the one Layla's reading. That one was based on a movie, and the movie was superior.

@Ethan Alias
I'm no artist, but a while ago I found some decent tutorials for drawing on Majnouna's DeviantArt.
In particular, here's one for hands: http://majnouna.deviantart.com/art/Drawing-Hands-124092168

I really don't think I need to be doing any drawing tutorials, and not just because of the time question (though that's a valid point). The truth is, I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing myself. A LOT of the time (heck, this very page is a prime example) I end up scrambling for reference photos to help me get the poses slightly less awkward. I'm not sure illuminating a guide with numerous instances of "and then I looked this up somewhere else" would actually be. Sorry!
