Chapter 3, Page 54


So, going to try and post the next few pages as fast as possible… have been juggling a lot of stuff but out of deference for the pacing I think this has to be the priority for a few days! So you can check back soon for more updates.

Also for checking, new tutorial will be up on Patreon soon, it is about… learning how to Patreon, haha. I’ve learned a lot the past year and a half or so using the site, and it’s time to put some of that into a tutorial. That will be up this weekend sometime.

And, just a few more days to comment/ get in the running for a free Thrip sticker

Last but not least, this again


Been doing so much physical work this week, it’s nice to be able to get back to focusing on comics. What they don’t tell you is the more you make comics, the less you get to make comics, ay yi yi. Okay, see you soon, gonna aim for tomorrow.

    When in that pose, Kalla’s elbows and tail look like the backside of a plunked chicken. However, sad to see that Kalla didn’t respond to being called a good “guy.”

    • Corbie

      I’m not a native speaker, but I heard “great guy” used for all sorts of (basically human) beings already, like “pal” or just “person” without any label on relationship. There’s actually a translation into my language for the exact term “great guy”, which is grammatically masculine, but regardless used for everyone.

    • corvideye

      indeed chicken-like… Now Mike can introduce K to the human colloquialism “Guess what, chicken butt”…

  • spottedspeck

    What are best friends for if not to be dicks to each other?

  • Rodinia

    Does Thighfriend get to be an honorary human too?

    • neptune432

      They did grow out of a human, which is how most people are born, so yes.

  • Pumpkin_Cake

    So wollaria is both singular and plural. Hmm. Is it capitalized? We don’t capitalize human, but it’s hard to tell when all the text is capitalized.

  • I had a dream the other night that Kalla and Mike found a door with an EXIT sign that led them out of the cave. Kalla didn’t know what it was because she can’t read English, and so never thought to go out it. Mike was like “See ya!”

    • Your Dog (is on the Internet)

      HAHA!!! You have no idea how much this made my day!!!
      That would be the best possible ending to this webcomic I can possibly think of.

  • Also, do you think you could update the voting pic to something more general? (A happy thrip or something?) It still gives the letters for that contest from a while back. I pop in every once in a while to vote for this comic, and clearly a lot of others do as well considering its high ranking.

    • shingworks

      Oh shoot, seriously? Yeah I can update that… last time I tried to sign in their site was extremely broken and all my old links were dead, so I stopped using it… should probably go back in there. Thanks for the suggestion/ reminder!

  • Adriano

    Wew LevI stop to be so r00d

    • Shakespizza

      Her crest, how it feels? Is it solid like a bone or it is something flexible?

      • Shakespizza


  • Spav

    Reading the tweet for this page… Armsnark?

    Did the relentless snegg jokes from that stream a few months ago worm their way into your subconscious?

  • MadameGin

    “I hereby declare you: Honorary Human.” There’s something about the composition of that whole panel… Despite not being flashy I’m counting it as my up-to-now favorite.

  • Sharshak

    Oh, Kalla, don’t be upset. I think for Mike now dick is synonym of human.

  • Mustachio

    Please tell me that Mike’s left eye is being augmented by the new bio-tech, and that he’s not uselessly blinded in that eye. That would be a traumatic experience :(

    • Dar

      Maybe he can see in infrared or something. :D

  • Upka

    Oh no I think this site might be hacked or something!
    I was just looking at the meek and clicked the link here to mare, and suddenly I was a lucky winner and there were pop-ups everywhere ;_;
    Don’t know if that’s happening to anybody else, or if it’s just my device or what

    • shingworks

      gdi >:[ was it on a phone? I’ve been getting reports of ad doing this from several people… I’m really sorry about that, I am trying to get it fixed. Thank you for letting me know too.

      • Upka

        Yeah, on my phone :( and I accidentally clicked on it and it sent me to the play store, an app called Energy Protector that looks to be made of viruses and brimstone. I’m not sure how one handles this kinda thing but I can send a screenshot or URL if that helps?

        • shingworks

          Oh yeah, that would be lovely if you don’t mind doing it. You can send it to hello [at] shingworks [dot] com if you catch it! Thanks very much again.

          • Dar

            My phone’s power button is busted so I can’t take screenshots but yeah, ads have hijacked the browser before. Yours isn’t the only comic it happens to either. I want to find those advertisers and beat them with a frozen haddock. >:(

          • shingworks

            Evidently Hiveworks is prioritizing it since it’s happened to a lot of comics in their network, including mine… thanks for your patience and I hope it didn’t do anything to your device!

  • Shakespizza

    Her crest, how it feels? Is it solid like a bone or it is something flexible?

  • Kent

    I like the way you put a subtle halo around Mike’s hand in panel 4.

  • adf

    lol reminds me of “you’re now an honorary dude!” like wow, thanks, so nice that you’ve promoted me from woman to dude

    i feel you kalla

  • Robert Meyer

    Oh man Thrip Sticker <3333

    • stone

      According to TS Eliot, the cricket brings no relief.

    • stone

      Sorry, my comment is way too obscure. The chapter looks like its nearly done, and The Lady of the Rocks is a reference to TS Eliot’s The Wasteland. So I gave it a reread. A few lines:

      Son of man,
      You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
      A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
      And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
      And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
      There is shadow under this red rock,
      (Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
      And I will show you something different from either
      Your shadow at morning striding behind you
      Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
      I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

      • shingworks

        Surprisingly, you are the first person to make that connection, despite the chapter starting back in January :] Nice work.

  • Katya

    I’m glad that Kalla, even as the last of her species, has some gosh-darned standards. Can’t let space-trash get uppity and think it deserves honorary Wollarianism.

  • Toothy

    Is it just me, or is this page not showing? The other ones are, but this one won’t load.

    • shingworks

      Just checked on my end and everything seems okay (image is loaded), maybe clear your cache and see if that does anything?
