Woo! Under the wire. Sorry for keeping you waiting.
Mike is referring to an incident from way back in time, when Jack apparently showed up to warn him against harming Sandra. It was one of my old "zany" comic pages drawn in 2001, back when I liked attaching gimmicks. Sure was different then.... Man, that's a lot of water under the bridge.
Ahhh, the gimmick days. Wasn't there a sideways comic once?
Tomie's reaction is perfect. Kind of painful to watch even. When did you decide to use '!' Instead of actual words? It really gets the sort of wordless, maybe even soundless anguish she's feeling.
I would need to read through to say with 100% certainty, but... I'm almost positive Tomie doesn't (can't?) talk to anyone but Jack.
She has no voice...
Sweet, I never noticed that. She's got dialogue for all of 2 panels and both times they are the square ones with no speech arrow or anything.
And you reminded me that Tomie said as much waaaaay back in the archives. Page 26 of the actual book. Only Jack can hear Tomie. Guess that rule still applies.
There's also a scene from the current arc where Jack is telling Sam what Tomie is saying. Was shortly before the digging zombie tunneled them out of the house.
Somewhere there is someone who can't handle rejection advising Mike that he's taking this whole thing way too harshly and needs to let go.
Crawling shadows, creeping dread
never were just in your head
"I don't remember what we talked about"
Although you could've trolled us further by having him say "Remember what we talked about?" and leave it all mysterious-like
Jack really does have a knack for being completely useless just when badassesery is sorely needed.
Only when he's not doing magic. He was pretty bad-ass when they went after Zandra and when he nail-gunned the vampires. There was also that whole fight in the wizard plane I'm blanking on the name of.
Caught off-guard. He'll have his mojo back once he's got his... feet under... him... Oh, crap.
It's difficult to be a badass when being tackle-hugged.
Mike, I do not think YOU are in a position to talk about being hurt by Zandra. You could talk about you hurting HER, and you could talk about all the myriad ways she's GOING to hurt you, but being hurt BY her? No.
Gonna be honest, I'm so glad those 'gimmick' days are over @_@ It makes it painful to read the archives and it makes it incredibly difficult to recommend this webcomic to people. I have to warn them about a whole bunch of gimmicks and tone whip-lashy humor before it starts to get serious
Less warning him about throwing magic at him, and more actually throwing magic at him, Jack.
