This is a pretty boring part, especially for a comic that needs to be story-heavy to survive. I'd suggest if you wanted to make a part like this make a page that has 2-3 stacked 4 panel strips for just that level, then the next week return to the story.
Just a suggestion, since X only got hit by a mech arm once, he shouldn't really cry in agony, maybe more of an "Ach!" would have been more appropriate.

I don't mean to sound knit-picky, but you've got two textual errors, both in the first panel. The first: 'fine' should be 'find'. The second: 'your' should be 'you're'
@Deruku: It's actually not even a plug-in, (I don't use photoshop, I just found this out) it's already built in to photoshop. I use paint.net, which is like right imbetween the complexity of photoshop and the simpleness of MS paint, so it turns out that in photoshop it's under the shapes tool thing. Check out this link for where i found this out: http://www.laughing-lion-design.com/2008/08/creating-speech-bubbles-in-photoshop-us ing-the

Thanks. Where can I get this plug-in? I'd like to check it out. The newer comics I have which are coming out in July I actually do the speech bubbles in Photoshop which I think is so much easier than Ms paint because I get a feel for where the bubbles should go. Then I make a new layer and do an outline with the lasso tool, fill, the stroke with a 1 pixel border. I like these bubbles because they feel crisp and clean, but I will definitely take a look at that plug-in.
I think most of us log on daily. Also, I'm pretty sure there's a photoshop plug-in that lets you make really good speech bubbles, if you want to navigate away from MS paint bubbles.

Saturday!
Hey guys, I decided to include a Saturday comic as a part of the weekly upload.

Again, what do you think of things so far? Is it interesting? Would you come back and read future comics? Please let me know and any suggestions as always are appreciated.

Shit's gonna go down.
Looking to see more from this. Also, I could attempt at doing voice acting for you if you need me to. If he's still around by the time the 5 minute episode rolls around, i'd like to do vile <3 I have an abnormally deep voice for my age.
Keep it up! c:

My First Photoshopped comic
I'm glad to announce that this is the first actually made 100% in photoshop. My skills are getting better. I am trying to wean myself off of MS Paint. Money well spent.

Did you know the newer photoshops have an animation tool to it?

Again, what do you think of things so far? Is it interesting? Would you come back and read future comics? Please let me know and any suggestions as always are appreciated.

Plus, I think that 3 comics a week maybe too slow. Any suggestions? When do you folks log on to Smackjeeves the most? I was thinking more people maybe on more during the weekend.

The Plot Thickens
The first comic of June. I apologize for taking a couple of months off. I'm going to be more into this. I'm dusting off my old photoshop skills and actually learning to use flash.

I plan on doing a 5 minute episode somewhere down the lines. I'm still experimenting with flash and I would need voice actors too. Let me know if anyone is interested, but again that's way down the line when there is a plot and making a 5 minute episode would make since.

Again, what do you think of things so far? Is it interesting? Would you come back and read future comics? Please let me know and any suggestions as always are appreciated.

Just a bit of a teaser I worked up in photoshop.
You, my good sir, have a new fan. :)

@MonkeysUncle Thanks. You're a great fan. Just to give you a bit of an update. I had a neck injury and a concussion. Doctor says I'm fine. but I'm on medication. I can still work, but should avoid lifting heavy objects. I'll load a comic for Monday.

Force
Yes, Force is Bass. He has a backstory that'll be tied into Vile's.

As for the lack on posts I was in a car accident. I posted a news post on the front page.
