The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 4

204 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 4

Wait — are potatoes really OK now for Paleo?

So, over at the Patreon page, I just posted up Adam DeKraker’s pencils for Kyle’s NSFW Romance Card art. The “Romance Cards” are one pack of four different kinds of Trading Cards I’m creating for the Kickstarter backers. Each Romance Card has a “Safe For Work” pin-up that will be on the front of the card — but thanks to one of the Kickstarter stretch goals, I’m also creating very Not Safe For Work versions of these pin-ups as well. This week’s Sneak Peek for $5+ Patrons shares Adam DeKraker’s awesome linework of the NSFW version.


Curious how Adam draws Kyle in a Full Monty pin-up? Become a Patron and you can see for yourself! 🙂

There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron, and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits!),

please take a moment to watch the video on my Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron.

So! Looks like Mitch is able to hear all kinds of stuff when he puts his mind to it! Who is this mysterious voice from Flyboy’s past? What will this mean for our young hero? And what’s gone “way too far”?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • Who?? Who is this voice you recognize??

    • And AJ snatch another one 🙂

      • I’m really going to need a bigger place soon. 😛

        • Why would keep them? A V is only a V once…

  • DC

    Ooh! Whose voice is he recognising?

    • Jinx!! 😀

      • Would you say recognize is U.S. and recognise is Commonwealth and other countries’ school?

        • That I do believe would be correct. There are a few other words as well.

  • davefragments

    Here we are. What a freaky reload. Now we know more about his powers but those who listen may not hear the right stuff. Those who listen are interpreting and that is dangerous – – it involves too many assumptions!

  • Whose voice?

    • Klaus

      I got this hunch that we wi
      ll soon find out.

  • Okay, re-reading that panel for the nth time. Who is Manito?

    • DC

      Someone who can get inside without breaking the door in?

      • Oooh, good point. Maybe it’s one of his previous team mates??

        • DC

          I first thought someone with some type of power but then went more boring thought and thought lock picking skills.

          • That’s a good possibility, but it could also be someone with powers like Kitty Pride

          • davefragments

            I’m thinking burglary or home invasion.

          • Most likely. 🙁

          • The lock pickin skills would suit Littlehands too as he’s an expert precise kraftwork as embroidery ^^

          • DC

            Ha, funny you should mention DOTU because the next page has a guy talking about having his dick in his hand.

    • Michael

      I’m concerned for Harry and his significant other. They need a quiet dinner and time to talk about their issues.

    • Maybe he’s an escapee from another webcomic, Demon of the Underground, coz Manito means Littlehands… That giant in the upper right panel of this page [url][/url]

  • Oooh, Who’s Manito? The other part of the ‘romance’ in this?

    • DC

      I came back today to re read page and comments, as usual, and remembered this one of yours. Now my mind is picturing Mitch swooping down and stopping the crime by carrying his friend(?) Manito away. If someone swooped down and flew up into the sky with me, I would be holding on to/hugging them very tightly.

  • Actually, re-reading it again… *blush* I spy with my little eye, one little panel of something I don’t think Mitch should be listening to. 😉

    • DC

      It’s the only one not in capitals too.

      • I noticed that. Whoopsie!

        • DC

          Maybe because it is being whispered.

          • That’s most likely it.

          • Yep. 🙂

          • Michael

            plot twist: It’s happening in the same room that Harry’s being yelled at in! :O

    • Good thing Mitch’s brain kinda blocks it out when it’s not someone needing help 😉

      • He’s the only one who doesn’t think dirty first! We’re only hearing Ms Hartwood enjoying the footrub her sister (and flatmate for 30 years) is giving her after a hard day?

    • 🙂

  • ……Mitch needs to find something else to wear until he is 18….

  • Uuugh, I didn’t even remember it was a camp night until about 15mins ago, after I woke up by myself half an hour ago after sleeping on/off for 24 hours -damn migraine. I had ventured out of bed out of bed for only the 2nd time in a day, and was looking at the new SF page when it struck me what morning it was, and hurried here.

    • Soirbleu

      Hope you feel better, Wolf.

      • Thank you. I’m starting to be more clear-headed now. Sadly I think it might be more than a migranine and that I’m getting sick – which I DON’T want to be because I won’t be home much in the next 5 days, and I’m going to be outside a lot >.<
        Crossing my fingers that feeling like my head is stuffed + having a slight fever is just a short result of the migraine and pills.

        • I also hope you feel better — and that it’s not a cold. Fingers crossed for you too. 🙂

    • Klaus
      • Ja, har hørt om det. Kunne være værd at kigge mere på hvis det også gælder for hovedpiner. Det er det jeg får mest, og heldigvis er de fleste ikke så kraftige som den igår. Mange sikkert udløst af forskellige andre skavanker jeg har (og pms) >.<
        Desværre flere år til at det kommer ud på det danske marked.

  • joshsusser

    Yes potatoes can be paelo. The inflammation-causing chemicals are in the skin, so if you peel the potatoes they are acceptable. They’re still just starch so they aren’t good for losing weight, but sometimes they can be included in paleo cooking. [THE MORE YOU KNOW!]

    • Michael

      Meh, I’ll take paella over paleo any day of the week.

      Potatoes are more than just starch, though, especially the heirloom varieties. A large baked potato has almost half of your recommended daily vitamin C and B6, as well as almost half of your potassium and a third of your manganese requirement.

  • ….I wonder if Mitch has tried that trick when he isn’t on super-secret night watch duty?

    • jreed3842

      Girl… *nods head in agreement*
      Mitch is trying really, really hard to turn my head away from Spooky. Haha.
      Panel one is fantastic!
      I LOVE the bird’s-eye-view of the city, and…. that’s a pretty dang good view of Mitch too!

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Oh my goodness… this is the most beautiful page EVER.

    I do think I need to sleep and ponder to say anything worthy. But it’s a special page… visually, verbally, content and character. There is so much of wonderful here. Wow.

    Just stunning work you guys. Thank you for taking one of our most loved characters and giving us a deep look at how his soul operates. This IS special.

    • Michael

      Echoing this. The first panel is among the most visually stunning comics work I’ve ever seen, both in terms of layout and colouring/shading. Absolutely remarkable.

      … Can’t say I’m much of a fan of the Jesus Pose going on, though. In terms of the superhero genre, that one’s been well and truly done to death.

      • It’s difficult to float slowly on your back, like Mitch is doing, if you don’t have the arms out to the side. Like on water, you’ll sink if you don’t have the arms out to balance you.

        • Klaus

          It is close to the X-position parachuters use to stabilize themselves.

        • Michael

          I was referring to the middle two panels, I’m fine with the first one because it looks natural and necessary for the kind of flight he’s doing. But panels 2 and 3 are a little less than subtle.

          • I know that’s the panels you were talking about. That’s what I meant too. He’s lying on his back (or maybe front down but I see it as back), relaxing and balancing. At least that’s how I read those two panels. If you don’t have balance points, by stratching your arms out, you’re going to tumble around in the wind.

    • LOL. Thank you, Chris. I really glad you like this. (And I’ll look forward to the play-by-play once you are rested. 🙂 )

  • Cman65

    Oh dear he could he it when I was having a “Little Me Time”

  • Richard Grant Muir

    Good god, Flyboy has an utterly enormous package in the first panel. Makes me feel like a child molester noticing that, lol.

    • Soirbleu

      Superheroes have to wear cups, I’m told.

      • Columbine

        I wish I could quote all the awesome hilarious bits in Guards! Guards! when various people respond to/try to explain cups-

    • It looks like going from a super speed to a sudden hold makes everything stand out in in a short tension. Just look at those chest muscled being pushed out when he ‘hit the breaks’ 🙂

    • DarkJokerOfAmuro

      ephebophile, dont worry ur not the only one XD…. i saw fuck it lets get him XDDD lol

  • Soirbleu

    First of all: Mitch has the most awesome powers ever. (And good control!)

    Second, look at that Gorgeous Hair! (*swoon*)

  • That first panel is REALLY awesome. Instantly one of my single panel favorites on the artistic side.

    As a whole page this is also gorgeous. I’m really enjoying to see Mitch fly. It’s been called the Jesus pose, but I like seeing Mitch literally lying on his back and relaxing while he’s floating on air. There’s not a lot of other poses to be in to do that and keep your balance. It’s just like floating on water 🙂

    I just find it cool to see how the wind is blowing through his hair and jacket. I’m envious!

    I like the close-up last panel too.
    ‘My, what big eyes you have’ .. said the Wolf to the black masked boy xD

  • Quinn Wendland

    So who is the voice he says he knows?

  • Mary Klemzak

    It must be really tough for super hearers. To hear all that, jumbled in several voices and conversations. I just remember from Bruce Almighty, all the prayers, and trying to organize them. Post its, filing cabinets, and finally email.

    But wait, there’s a voice he recognized? Ruh roh.

    • Klaus

      If you think Mitch has it rough, what about Amanda?

      • Mary Klemzak

        Yeah I knooowww!!!

  • YangYueLan

    I like this page. Its a good page.

  • Sapfo

    Have to say that it is a treat to get to know more about young Mitch. Seems like he can be an even greater hero once he is 18.

    Seren looking Flyboy.

  • dereule101

    Beautiful page!

  • Kate G

    I will never tire of seeing Mitch flying. It’s utterly breathtaking.

    I love the bubble that says, “Now where did I leave my keys?” That is something is FOREVER a problem in my house. We even have a KEY HOOK for the car keys and we still manage to lose those darn keys. How can you lose keys that are on a Batman lanyard? My keys are kind of pointless though considering my car (the Kittymobile) is in the shop. It literally blew a gasket…two of them. And killed a few spark plugs in the process. TT__TT

    I love that Mitch has super hearing. I can really relate to him. Some Autistics like me also have a hypersensory disorder which basically means all of our senses are heightened (some have the opposite.) My sense of sound is the most sensitive of all so I really hate going to the city or any place even remotely loud. My idea of fun is the stables, the craft store, the library and this really quiet bowling alley I know where the bowling is dirt cheap. Quiet is my haven. Give me some peace, tranquility and quiet and I’m the happiest girl you’ll ever know.

    • Terri Sutton

      Losing your keys that are attached to a lanyard is nothing compared to my house. Several of the people I live with (including myself) have lost our glasses. They were found on our faces!

      • I know people in my house who also do that sometimes 😉
        I did something similar yesterday too — I went to another room to get a clock/timer, looked everywhere for it and couldn’t find it, then went back to my room feeling defeated only to find it sitting on my bed, realising I’d retrieved it earlier and had completely forgotten. I wasn’t sure whether to laugh, call myself stupid, or be genuinely concerned about my memory haha :/

      • Kate G

        HA HA HA HA HA HA HA, that’s happened in this house.

        Other “lost” scenarios:
        “Katie, have you seen my phone?”
        *stares at Mom incredulously*
        “Mom, it’s in your hand.”
        *blinks* “Oh. STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!”


        “Has anyone seen the dog?” Dad
        “No, why?” Mom and me.
        “ZENA!!!” Dad
        Zena looks up at us from behind the pillows next to my mom and me like we’re all idiots. (This happens more than I care to admit. She basically blends into shadows being mostly black.)

  • Will Parkinson

    In my opinion, this page puts everything else second. It’s simply breathtaking, and I love seeing him fly. Thank you so much.

  • Heh, I just now realized that he’s floating on his back. Yes, I saw the comments about his arms being held out for stabilization, but it didn’t sink in. Some of the most serene moments in a pool for me have been floating there on the surface, so yeah, I can totally see doing that while flying.

  • Jeldenil

    I really like the way the goggles are being colored in thispage. Great work, very convincing.

  • Nate

    This is just a lovely page in general. I can just see it as a film scene.

    (It actually reminds me of a scene in the first RDJ Sherlock Holmes movie, but that’s not meant as casting aspersions. EVERYTHING reminds me of something. 😉 )

  • those Clouds, man…

    …those clouds.

    (stupendous colouring/penciling job, guys!)

    and, yes: as of the time of that utterance, Potatoes were, indeed

  • DarkJokerOfAmuro

    everything about this page is just awesome XDD…also kinda drooling on First panel. If that costume is skin tight, there’s no you way can tell me that Mitch is 15 😛

  • I have said some of this in earlier comment, but the more I look at the art on this page, the more I love it, and the more I want to compliment Adam’s art skills (and Vero for putting that last perfect touch on it, to really make it stand out.

    I love how you can just see Mitch’s body responding to going from full speed ahead to a near stop in panel 1. How the gravity of the change in speed creates muscle tension, and has everything pushed up-/forward for a moment. To remember to add that detail.. wow. And don’t even get me started on the background in panel 1.

    Then in panel 2 + 3, you can just see how relaxed and serene Mitch is while floating away on air while the wind is blowing around him. I can almost ‘hear’ it blowing around him while he’s listening to that wave of voices coming up from beneath him. GORGEOUS!

    I’ll say that Adam has almost outdone himself on this page. I’m floored.

    • Aw, thanks!! Having lots of fun and working hard on this Flyboy story. Glad you’re digging it, Danish! 🙂

      • How could anyone not like this Flyboy story? You are doing an absolutely amazing job!

  • bronakopdin

    Now actually the first thing I did when I read this page is to google “paleo”… I had no idea but it even sounds interesting!

    Our Mitch is surprising me again and again… to be able to HEAR all those voices at once is one thing… to actually LISTEN to them all at the same time is another! Awesome talent! And then even distinguish between important stuff and the rest AND make out voices… Mitch you’re incredible! I can’t say anything more now ^^

  • Terri Sutton

    The art for this page is absolutely stunning!

    Although I am now want to know who “purple voice” is?

  • Pikinanou

    awesome page 😀 I prefer my fries without salt, thank you 🙂

    • Dennis Grace


      Ah well, de gustibus

  • Dennis Grace

    It’s probably just my Dirty Old Man mind working overtime, but there’s something really obscene about that first panel. “Hey! Cirrocumulus! Look at the size of my package. Isn’t my cock just HUGE?”

    • Terri Sutton

      That was my first thought, but at a second glanced it just looked like the size may have been accentuated by the shading.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Dude, my first thought was that you need to get out more.

      However, upon reflection, do you remember how guys would bleach out their levi’s “right there” … you know to lighten the spot where you want people to look? I think that’s what going on here. His junk is just the most reflective spot on his uniform (this is his illegal night-time uniform after all… it SHOULD look bad ass and sexier than Mom would let him wear). So I don’t think it’s anything more than good old fashioned 15-year-old teenage junk, just well presented in the moonlight. So we still have to wait a few years……….

      And that’s my dirty old man story… and I’m sticking with it. 😀

      • Adam Black

        i never had to do that.
        But hey, no judgments.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Okay @disqus_FidZAwLkzS:disqus, I believe you, but I told you before that running around in public without your pants is kinda the same thing. Just sayin’.

  • andraknoby

    Woow!Amazing what he do!o.o

  • cheerbearp

    Mitch looks so handsomely pretty here!

  • Kat Hedgecoth

    I loved the subtle change in hair and his jacket from the second to third panels. It’s small, but gives you a more fluid feeling of him being high in the air where there is more wind. Not changing it would make the two panels stagnate or flat I think. I wanna know who’s voice that is, can’t wait for Saturday!

    • Agreed. I loved the way his hair changed as well. 🙂

      • bronakopdin

        me, too 😀

    • bergulme .

      Yeah, the two panels are beautiful.

  • anonywolf

    Jesus pose. Quick! Find three more guys to make it look like he’s spelling out YMCA!

    Also – I didn’t notice his….package until everyone else pointed it out. Sooo… good job (slightly pervy job but still).

  • Jason Moon

    I’ll bet he has succumbed at least once to the desire to spit from that height.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay you guys… this is amazing work. The art and the dialog and concepts come together here in a way that just vaults this page up into Mitch’s stratosphere…

    Panel #1: That float. Loft. Weightless moment is so beautiful you can feel it. Or I WANT to feel it. It’s so wonderfully effortless. As one might expect from a boy with power over gravity. Yes, I said it. Think about THAT. POWER OVER GRAVITY. That is pretty effing amazing and I don’t think Mitch really know yet… which makes him even more adorable.

    Somewhere in the comments someone negatively compared this to and “overused” crucifixion pose. I just want to say that I didn’t feel that. Personally, I swam, dove, competed in water polo (ha, like so many gays) all through high school and college. For me this was that classic weightless’ moment at the top of your backward dive when you felt FREE… before falling to earth (well the pool). I think @admiraljane:disqus compared it to the freedom of floating in the pool. That wonderful weightlessness. So, no crit, but the Jeebus pose is all about pain and suffering. Here Mitch seems the opposite. As if this moment is what he lives for. High above the world. FREE. Just loved this panel… with longing.

    Panel #2-3: I loved the sensation that he has a connection with all the people in his world. A caring connection. As if he’s floating, without judgement, on top of all these peoples lives… UNTIL he hears something critical, scary of importance… I like the way that was highlighted for us readers in color, but subtle and impactful, if that makes sense.

    Panel #4: CRAP on a cracker. Loved the closeup on his face as realizes this effects HIM. No question that it leaves me wondering what’s next. (Alex you tricksy dude you!)

    Thank you all for this really beautiful page. This is ART. The kind of page I want as a print. Particularly that first panel. No he’s not to sexy, that’s what this genre is for and yes he feels totally true to his character. It’s lovely to see. This could not have been and easy page to produce with its rich detail. Thank you for the effort. It’s already a favorite. Can’t wait for the next. Butt you knew that. 🙂

    • And thank you for another wonderful play-by-play, Chris. Very fun for me to read. Really glad you liked our work here! 🙂

    • Panel 2 + 3.. he’s like a bird surfing the wind currents, just ‘hanging’ in the air until he spots his ‘prey’ and will drop from the skye like a falcon 🙂

    • Thanks, Chris! 😀

  • stickfigurefairytales

    This page is utterly stunning. I’m so happy for all of the Mitch!!

  • Adam Black

    I camped for over 3 hours last night, It was strangely… really slow.

    Then I discovered at 1am that the page was up since 10:30 ish and nobody announced it. or even told me.

    • Aww, I didn’t even look to see if anyone had put the notice up, since I came right as this page was already uploaded (and someone usually has told right after it’s up). Another time, if everything goes quiet on the previous page, try to refresh and check the ‘Latest page’ a few times.

    • Klaus

      $3 a month will get you a mail whenever a page is posted.

  • Kate G

    The more I look at this page, the more I want that first panel on my wall. Or the third panel only with his fully body. It’s just SO FREAKING PRETTY and so metaphorical. It’s also so serene and relaxing. (It probably wasn’t that relaxing while Veronica was coloring it because that is a hell of a lot of detail to color but it PAID OFF.)

    This is how I feel when I’m riding the horses/ponies at therapy, I finally get out of my head and just RIDE. It’s instant relaxation and I feel like I’m floating or flying on air.

    • Terri Sutton

      I would love a poster that is Mitch’s pose from the second/third panels.

  • Toli Bera

    and a pose like that.

  • EyeDontNo

    So the criminals that Flyboy cant catch are mimes? Makes sense.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      HA! (still that’s so unfair as mimes are the ultimate criminals)

  • Paul D’Arbonne

    Argh! I’m attracted to a drawing of a guy half my age. I feel so weird!

  • Ok Mitch you should clearly be focusing on those people on the Paleo diet. You need to save them from themselves. Get them a loaf of bread, asap

    • Zachary Lucido

      No! The no carb diet works, damn it. Give them cheese, and olive oil, and a soufflé.

  • davefragments

    I have a character in a story of my anthology who I imagined in the same position as Mitch (in frames 2 and 3. The difference is that my character is in his late 20, and manifests black wings, horns, claws, and breathes fire.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      tell me more…………. 🙂

      • davefragments

        Patience. I’m still going through the last proof copy. Damn proofs are killing me.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Okay……… (*chris bounces on his chair waiting*) HA!

    • Zachary Lucido

      I didn’t know Goliath could breath fire. Hot!

      • davefragments

        “Goliath” ? ? ? I’m missing something in that reference. My character is more like a fallen angel.
        Mitch seems more unspoiled and untested at this point. He’s got that pure innocence and is headed to a disappointment.

        Years ago, I knew a teen who did what I couldn’t and entered a school of music as a pianist. The first recital I heard by him was all fire and bombast — the Hammerklavier, the Waldstein and other pieces like those – – pure power and explosion on the piano.
        Then after his first year, he gave another recital and a girl broke his heart. That second recital was even more thrilling because he had learned about passion and sentiment.

        So Mitch is headed in that direction.

          • davefragments

            Now I understand, thanks.

          • Tyler Griffin

            I loved Gargoyles SOOOOOO much growing up. Demona was my first exposure to a “complicated” villain who you can totally end up feeling really, really sorry for, even all of her problems are almost entirely self induced.

        • Zachary Lucido

          I was referring to Gargoyles, the cartoon!

          • davefragments

            Got it. My character is one of the fallen angels. He was the one who separated the light from the dark and then rebelled.

    • I have to agree with Mr. Dangerfield. This sound really interesting.

      • davefragments

        Once I get past this proof, I will publish the anthology in paper and as an ebook on Amazon. It’s just this single step of proofing and final edits that is taking a lot longer than I expected.

        • Formatting is the evil with editting a very bery close second!!
          I hate dealing with proofs. I have like four or more copies of one of my books. :/

        • Forgot to offer my sympathies. And may the force be with you. I’m sure it’ll look great once it’s done. And a huger relief.

    • Mary Klemzak

      Dave you have a webcomic? Do tell!

      • davefragments

        I write short stories and the past few months I’ve been putting together my first anthology of short stories. Seven were out of print and three are original. This scene is one that I envisioned as the climax to a story about “rain.”

        • Mary Klemzak

          So cool!

  • Derkins

    he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15, he’s only 15 …

    • Chris Dangerfield

      No Derkins, NO. It’s okay, breathe. Looks it’s all about AUs and there’s a formula that converts super-hero ages into acceptable numbers. See it works like this:

      Mitch’s formula, named after Alex Mitch, is a mathematical formula in complex analysis that establishes the fundamental relationship between the underageometric functions and the complex sexponential function. Mitch’s formula states that, for any real age x, where e is the base of the natural bodyrithm, i is the imaginary age-unit, and kis and sin are the sexometric functions kisine and sinsine respectively, with the argument x given in desiradians. This complex exponential function is sometimes denoted hot(x) (“sexsine plus bodsine”). The formula is still valid if x is an underage number, and so some readers refer to the more general complex version as “Mitch is simply too cute and I refuse to allow logic to enter into my brain.”

      So if anyone says anything implying he’s too young, just do the adult thing and run away with your fingers in your ear yelling, “LALALALANOTLISTENINGLALALALA” and you should be fine. 🙂

      • Zachary Lucido

        He also deals with life and death situations regularly, including rapists. He is mature for his age. Also, where are his parents? Is he an imancipated minor (legal adult in many ways), or a ward of the state?

        • Michael

          I suspect we may find out soon.

      • Mary Klemzak

        Looking is fine. Touchie touchie, not fine.

      • Michael

        Too complex for me. I prefer the Hammer Formulation:

        Q: Can We Touch This?

        A: No.

        While it’s rollin’ hold on pump a little bit
        And let me know it’s going on like that like that
        Cold on a mission so pull on back
        Let ’em know that you’re too much
        And his is a booty u can’t touch

      To paraquote Dr Hook:

      He was only fifteen, only fifteen

      Oh with eyes that would glow

      But he was too young to fall in love

      And I was too young to know

      Ugh. I just spent the week re-reading through the entire Oglaf comic. It’s hilarious, but I think I’ve met my quota of “new” comic exploration for a bit.

      • davefragments

        I gave the first paperbound OGLAF book to my brother for Christmas one year and I think his wife performed an exorcism on it and then burnt it.
        I love the “100 tiny eyes” panels. My kinda guy!

    I will be heading off to RPGing in an hour or so. I will therefore take the opportunity to get in early and wish Admiral Jane a happy birthday for the 1st.

    • Thank you so much, Saxon!!

      And I do believe we share the same birthday so a Happy Birthday to you in return!!

      • Michael

        Happy birthday, AJ and Saxon!

        • Thank you, Michael!!

          • Michael

            Since I can’t give you cake, I shall buy some cake for myself in your honour. 😉

          • At least someone gets cake!!

      • jreed3842

        *Gasp!!!* A 2 for 1 deal?! I am so bringing the cake to camp tonight. Happy (early) birthday to the Admiral and Saxon!! You both rock!

        • Yay for cake!!

          • Tyler Griffin

            I have Oreo cookies and cream icecream

          • Yay for ice cream and oreos!!

      • davefragments

        .Happy Birthday

    • davefragments

      Happy Birthday

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Happy birthday to you as well, Saxon!

  • Michael

    It’s possible I’ll be scraping paint off of a windowsill during the camping time, so if I am, happy camping everyone!

    • Tyler Griffin

      Ew, window sills and painting suck when combined

      • Michael

        Mother has decided she doesn’t like the colour. Don’t worry though, it’s water-based paint sitting on top of oil-based stain, so it comes off really easily.

        • Tyler Griffin

          Still tedious, lol. I painted the two bedrooms in my house this spring, I’m still finding corners and gaps and edges I missed.

  • Hallo, I won’t be able to camp tonight booo me so wanted to tell this before going to bed: don’t forget to vote on topwebcomics! But could you wait till midnight UST then it will the beginning of the August, the counters will start from blank and TyP will make a huge leap forward in the chart. It usually does for webcomics that updates on the first but didn’t happened for the page of the 1st of July… I only got it last week: Alex put the page too early *more booos, hisssses and swearing my way*

    Have a nice, safe camping and goodnight (^_^)ノ

  • And a very happy birthday from me for both AJ and Saxon! Y’all are totally awesome and I’m so glad you found our comics! 🙂

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Well, I’m done with my first week at my new job, and it’s been going really well so far! My coworkers are very nice, but it is definitely exhausting.

    • Yay!! (I mean not for the exhaustion, but for the new job going really well with nice coworkers!)

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thank you! 😀

    • Congratulations on surviving week 1!!!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        o/ Thank you!!!

    • jreed3842

      Ahhh! Glad you like the new job! It’s always nice to have good co-workers!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Yes, that definitely has a huge impact! 🙂

    • Michael

      Congrats! What’s the job?

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Dang it, I really want to stay and camp but I’m having genuine trouble keeping my eyes open. I think I may have to bow out for tonight and come by tomorrow morning instead, guys. AJ and Saxon, have a wonderful birthday each!

    • night and sweet dreams sticky love!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Goodnight, Doki dear!

      • Michael

        fyi: “sticky love” is maybe not the best nickname for someone…

    • davefragments

      Have a good rest.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thank you!

    • jreed3842
