Welcome to Tangentville, a place where mundane people and the strangest assortment of oddities cross paths on a daily basis. Hijinks ensue. You're just as likely to bump into a extraterrestrial or an ancient deity as you are the slacker from down the street. And did we mention it's in New Jersey?

Tangentville isn't so much a place as it is a state of mind. Come for a visit...

@Firemind: Sailor Moon might be a little too intense for Miss Legates ^_~

I've toyed with drawing Pearl copslaying Yotsuba for giggles.
@ERA: I believe John Fogerty occasionally sings those wrong lyrics in live shows for fun.
Good choices, maybe next time she'll try some old Archie-era Sonic comics, Lucky Star, and maybe Sailor Moon.
During his surgery rotations as part of his residency, my dad's preceptor would have music playing in the surgical suite. He's play Bad Moon Rising and would sing along: "it's bound to take your life, there's a bathroom on the right!"
@Karlijn: We artists are a strange lot; we're never satisfied with our own works ^_~

I'm glad you liked it. I had a few ideas about Teri that I didn't think I'd get to touch upon. But then I got a lot more positive response to the character than I ever expected. So Teri will likely pop up again.
@Karlijn: Friendships can wind one-sided and abusive just like any other relation. Even more so when peer pressure and the need to "fit in" are involved.
@Karlijn: Karma can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

It's the artist's curse to be unhappy with their results a lot of the times... I hate most of the faces I draw, they never turn out the way I imagine them in my head!
This was a nice arc, I'll remember Teri as a good character now :)
I love it when karma strikes in comics and series, this girl reminded me too much of some people I used to call my friends.
I was wondering why she was hanging out with that girl in the first place, she seemed to have problems with the plan :/
A Pearl comic? It must be a Wednesday.

Little by little, Pearl is cautiously exploring the outside world. In that respect, she's like Yotsuba&'s eponymous heroine. No, I didn't think of that when I wrote the page; I was just going for something Japanese that was cute and had themes Pearl was capable of handling.
This is a follow up to #743-Meanwhile In Japan. Fujin is still bitter and Inari is somehow even more adorable than before.

I didn't plan on two music-themed comics back-to-back, it just sort of happened.
Apologies to The Rolling Stones (Beast of Burden), Creedence Clearwater Revival (Bad Moon Rising), and Manfred Mann's Earthband (unintentionally hilarious cover of Bruce Springsteen's Blinded by the Light).

@Passerby: Always wonder ^_~
@Jenny: Glad you liked it. It just seemed the best way to wrap things up. Plus it means Teri could potentially pop up again.
@GmanNJ: Thank you! With my art being as stylized as it is now, it's not easy to convey real emotion without it looking like a sight gag.
@Passerby: From her first appearance, I've always tried to show Penny as a class act.

Panel 2 shows a lot of emotion in Terri's face. Very nicely done
I like Penny's reasoning. She's got compassion and class.
I don't know why Ava appears to have misplaced her dress, I don't know if Georgia burst into a bedroom without permission or if Ava is just randomly walking around the party in her bra, I don't know if everything going on at that party can be shown on air without gratuitous use of pixelated censorship. All I know is that I never want the details filled in because nothing can be as funny or as horrible as what we ourselves will fill in the blanks with.
