People in Pewter do have a dragging tendency... I did wonder what would happen if they collided, maybe there was some competition between them. Maybe that was just me.

I'm afraid I do have a little bad news. This is the final few months I'm ever going to have in uni, and at the moment I have a pretty tight harsh deadline to meet. I'm not quitting, but for the rest of the month I'm only going to be updating on fridays. Better than stopping totally, right? I'm gunna still do what I can.

It's a children's book I'm working on. I'll be uploading my work on it at my deviantart if you wanna see. http://h0lyhandgrenade.deviantart.com/

We're getting closer to the Gym... At last!! This is what I've been looking forward to.

See y'all soon.

I think Atty would sound better if he said 'Who is this guy' rather than 'Who is this man'. It seems too formal to say 'man', but maybe that's just me >.>

Atticus must just give off the vibe of an easy catch. He seems to be attracting more and more weirdos.

LOL Gotta love George in general and just how Atty can be so reluctant to being showed around! <3 I'll miss reading this comic on mondays until you can do it again... But at least you're still updating every week. ^_^

That last panel had me cracking xD Wonderful. I also think we should be able to see a bit of DT peeking over Atty's shoulder on some of those frontal takes... Or maybe that's just me :P Either way, keep up the good work! And good luck with uni, too! At least I guess that means we get to see DT unevolved for a bit longer time :3

Sigh. I've been reading from the beginning, and I love Atty and Dragonthing to pieces, but I must admit that I'm just tired of every person you introduce being either insane or a complete asshole...or both. Are we ever going to be introduced to some believable human beings that aren't Atticus?

@Tamakai: I do like writing insane people or assholes, but I think it's a little unfair to say they've ALL been like that... I could list all the people in the comic who haven't been, big role and small, but you probably don't want that. Either way, I assure you, there will be more less eccentric people along the way.

One of these days, I hope to see him just tell Dragonthing to torch the next random person who assaults him. Dragonthing will gain SO much experience from all the torching he'll be doing.

This makes me wonder.... is the whole "follow.me to the gym! *drags along*" guy the reason those bug catchers and whatnot are sitting just beyond there? Because I distinctly remember no names being written on the statue when I entered the gym the first time... did they sneak past him when they saw him dragging people off?

Its Friday~ I think you set yourself too high targets but having multiple updates a week. Most comics of a singlelar staff dont manage a single update, let alone the multiple you have managed to churn out!

If you manage one a week, that would be swell! =D

P.S. I hope everyone had a nice Valentines~ Either alone or with someone :3

People who have such a sense of entitlement for nice things done in someone's spare time are certainly annoying. :\ It can also take away from the drive which made this comic fun to do in the first place. I've seen that happen to a couple of lovely comics... so maybe just be nice and supportive if you like it that much. :)

I've been in his shoes Last year, I got to go on a cruise. One of our stops was Labadee, Haiti. The place was a total tourist trap, but I decided to walk down the Artisan District. Big mistake.
The shopkeepers were the pushiest people I have ever met, most of them trying to push a sale through before you even knew what was going on. And as one shopkeeper pulled you in, someone else would call dibs on you next (despite the fact that they all sold pretty much the exact same things). They never physically dragged me anywhere, but they came damn close.
