Chapter 1, Page 5

This is why men aren’t well suited to the sciences; too emotional.

HA HA JUST KIddi n g

OK in other news, I’m approaching a crunch for two of my dayjobs, so the next update may either be on the weekend, or just deferred to next week! Which sucks because I already did a bunch of work on it, but clients must come first :> I will try my best to make it up (and if you are one of those people who likes to complain about stuff like this, you are free to come over and help me ink these 80 pages in the next 2 weeks).

    If _surprise_ means _infinite chins_ surely _anger_ must mean _infinite finger joints_.

      I think he has the right number >__> I just emphasized the knuckles becauseeee… well obviously this is not a comic with realistic proportions :^|

  • If only I was a better line artist, I’d TOTALLY help you ink hahaha

    • pluww

      your brush set is super awesome

  • DukeBG

    I loved that pause on the penultimate frame. Makes you really feel his raging rant.

  • Kastuk

    Biosphere 2 failed because of that.

    • shingworks

      Haha, oh, Biosphere 2… fun to read about, probably terrible to experience in real life.

  • VainVillain

    The way you use panels to emphasize mood and the passage of time in between parts of the dialogue is incredible!!

  • Can I say I really love how you letter comics? like, dang, so refreshing to be able to read it seamlessly. (I love everything else too, ofc – had to mention that, though.)

    • You’d really think that good lettering is a “no-duh” easy thing to do, but oh man GOOD lettering takes time and consideration a lot of people don’t take the time to appreciate hahah

    • shingworks

      Thank you for noticing <3 I've been centering my text by hand for this comic to make it conform to the bubbles more naturally, I like the organic look it has :)

  • skellagirl

    Are we going to find out why he dislikes her so much, in more detail later? Or is this just inferred?

    I’m really enjoying this comic so far, btw. I was bummed when The Meek went on hiatus; I’m really glad you’re doing comics again! Keep up the good work.

    • shingworks

      Of course :D I don’t like leaving loose plot ends for anything.

  • sirblossom

    I’m really loving the diversity so far in this comic! It’s really nice to see.

    Also, GOSH. THAT LAST PANEL. I can’t stop admiring how well you captured the emotion in it.

  • You know, this guy looks a lot like this Icelandic actor named Kjartan Guðjónsson. I realize nobody here cares about that but I thought it was interesting.

      Lol, amazing… for comparison, a semi-realistic sketch I did a few months ago. Yeah, Mike takes after his Norwegian half and suffers from those ridiculously blonde eyebrows. It ranks as one of my most questionable character design decisions ever :/

  • kishimobot

    Nggahh! I held myself back as long as could so I could have a bunch of new pages to read of your new comic! It looks amazing so far and I’m so excited to learn about the new characters :)

  • Ceceoh

    Wow, you can cut the sexual tension with a knife! (jk)

  • pluww

    I love their differences in height and form, and I love Bex

  • Danielle

    Dude, it’s hard to balance work and passion. The need to live, and the reason for living, you know?

    Wow that was super unintentionally deep.

    Anyway, really enjoying this exciting new comic and you don’t have to worry, because we understand how life gets in the way of updates sometimes.

  • I loved the way you paused the arguing when someone passed by.

  • kraken

    Just going to point out you are not wrong about guys not suited for some things due to ’emotions’. Its proven in high stress occupations, women cope with stress better than men. It makes them pretty valueble in sciences but also law enforcement positions. They just tend to take things easier. When it comes to physical stress and strength not so much.

  • SotiCoto

    Emotion? What emotion?

  • ✩ Helen ☽

    wow this dialog, amazingly written!
