Sorry for the wait! I'm pretty much all better now and raring to go. Thanks for your patience~

(Art shit time) This page woulda been a lot easier if I'd had the first three panels be horizontal. It woulda been easier to establish the scene, plus easier to fit the text in. However since I knew I definitely wanted a horizontal panel at the bottom, having nothing but four moderately equally sized horizontal panels on a page doesn't look very good (especially since its more likely to split the page in half). Also gotta consider that only a couple of pages ago I had a page where there was a big stack of horizontal panels, which felt appropriate there but I don't wanna go doing it again (not so soon, for sure). So I dicked about until I managed to stuff the scene into vertical panels. Three vertical panels on top of a horizontal looks way nicer even if the contents aren't as pretty. Worth it cuz bad panel composition really brings a page down 8T

...Some comic shit for ya xD This page wasn't big trouble or special or anything, I just felt like sharing. Wondered if people are interested in this kinda thing.

Ah'll sithee later.

Since Google never lies, “roll” is the correct word.

@SoulRaider116: Roll in this context means something along the lines of "mug" like what a criminal does. To get "rolled" is the same as being mugged.

I definitely am interested in that kind of thing because -
1) you're really good at this
2) panel composition is kind of like an elephant in the room, people don't bring it up much so I know everyone struggles with art in general but feel that my compositional troubles are mostly me being daft so it's good to see that hey, it's totally a part of the process.

Also OMG, I'm not sure George can act but that'll only make it more entertaining to see. >:D

George has the brazen confidence to just walk into people's houses unannounced and steal their stuff from right in front of them.

So I'm thinking she can act.

I like that you care about each and every page. If you ever publish this as a physical thing it would totally pay off in the long run when people can read it all in one go. Also semi-related, do you ever thought about going back at some point and up the quality or maybe edit things outright when it comes to some of the earlier pages? Your art always been amazing but you been improving non-stop that it amaze me that I never noticed until I decide to go back and reread from the beginning.

@Zelkova: Thank you =D Cleaning up old pages is something I'd never actually do though. For one, it's a trap a lot of comic artists tend to fall into. They start cleaning up the start and get so hung up on it they end up redoing the whole dang thing, and by the time they're done the start looks bad to them again and they start redoing that too, and they get caught in a cycle (This happens A LOT).

The other reason is when I read someone else's comic, I really like to see the art progression and it's the same with my own xP

Too True @H0lyhandgrenade: I can't tell you how many comics I've loved that have died because the artist went back to update their old pages and then they get stuck in that limbo and they never do another update because they lost the momentum on the story writing aspect. Momentum is so key to creative writing. Never lose it H0lyhandgrenade. Your comics are my #1 favorites out there.

Why is that lady standing on a Pikachu in panel one? I guess it's not just Rat that gets mistreated. :P

Would love reading more 'art shit' from time to time. This comic's amazing and reading some of your thought process on making a page is interesting, educational and just plain fun.

As for George, if her acting is gonna be as good as her entrance we'll have a performance of a lifetime coming up.

Little did Atty know that George had been preparing for an acting gig her whole life

If the past is any indication, her kleptomania should kick in and this will be incredible!

I really appreciated your comments on the composition - I've never actually thought of that kind of thing before!

Great work as always - glad your back!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the art composition. I haven't done much comics work myself, but I've read a decent amount. Since I'm thinking about shifting into the creative side, I've starting paying more attention to that. (I got experience in shot composition from a few courses back in school, but storyboarding isn't quite page composition.) It really is noticeable when the panels all look alike, so I appreciate the thought and effort you put into yours. It always shows. :) Thank you~
