@eishiya:
Step 8. Make sure to show off your impeccably manicured nails while doing the electrocuting

@Oly-RRR: "Step 6. Wait for bite reflex. Step 7. Electrocute."
Sounds legit.

Thank you!

Is this an illustrated instruction manual for parents of teenagers with video games/Internet addiction? SURE LOOKS LIKE ONE :D

I mean it is a great page, I'm glad you uploaded it today!

I'm sorry for not updating yesterday! I had a rather stressful week and hadn't been sleeping enough, so when it came time to thumbnail this page, it just did not happen. I managed to get it thumbnailed yesterday though, and inked today.

I was planning to do a double update next week, but Tim is a JoJo and that deserves its own update.

Too many options! He also might be having a stroke. :C The rest of this arc is a medical drama. Or a Cop Story crossover.

And we didn't need more reasons to think Alain is a bit of a creep but... yyyeeeeaaaah, I can imagine him doing that too. XD

That looks like me when I ask what people want in their coffee in the morning at work.

I knew it.
He's just idling.
I dislike this kind of gamer.

@eishiya: Ah, it's just that I'm a lazy butt and wish the weekend lasted longer ^^;

@MoxMox: Hahah oh no! I hope your Mondays get better. On the bright side, I'm not sure this guy's waking up at all, so you've got that on him.

Early update today because I've got a busy and probably stressful day ahead of me, I'm worried I'll forget later.

I normally dread drawing big faces because they're difficult and I can't BS them as much as little ones, but revenant/dead/gamer(??) faces are just so much fun!

...I like to think Tim's nails are very nice because Alain gave him a manicure while he was unconscious >> ...Really I just wasn't thinking at all. I don't even know how that happened; my own nails are a mess, so it couldn't have been accidental referencing.

I've the slightest doubt that this guy will respawn any time soon.

Sometimes it's hard to tell an alive gamer from a dead one, maybe he's just paused... Reminds me of a relative talking about her son: "I saw he was in bed and not in front of the computer and that's when I realised he was really sick" :D

WoM's UI person needs to be fired.

I hope y'all had a great Halloween yesterday! I had trick-or-treaters for the first time in years!
I was considering posting this page up yesterday because Halloween without a BD update always feels strange to me, but I decided it would just be confusing to update on a different day. ...also I wanted to procrastinate. Working on the best holiday of the year, pfft.

I don't know what Tim's :T-ing about, looks like a fine flat to me. The shelves are sturdy, the blinds work, and the mail gets delivered right to your doorstep, what more could you want?

@Oly-RRR: Maybe would-be thieves are afraid of the floor that's apparently so dark that you can't see the floor ;D

I think the dialogue works well - it instantly sent my mind back to Alain.

And you know I'm getting a kick out of all that urban decay. :D WOW IS THAT A FUNCTIONAL NON-STOLEN FIRE EXTINGUISHER

@Dartania: No worries, your comment wasn't over-critical at all <3 It's really good to hear from readers who get confused - most such readers just leave and never make themselves known, which leads to a confirmation bias in the comments - the people commenting are the ones for whom the problems weren't problems.


Though I tried to make it clear the first couple of times the story switched time periods, it's still possible to miss, and if you do miss it, it's very confusing. It's an odd set-up for a story that I'll probably not use again.

It would've been much clearer to use text to communicate the different time periods but I'm stubborn and felt I could communicate it through visuals alone. Apparently I didn't do that good of a job. I probably should have emphasised the past-ness more in chapter 1, so that it could contrast better with chapter 2.


I definitely should use names more, the opportunities just never come up. I've even joked about it in the comments :'D
There will be more name mentions in upcoming scenes because they work naturally in those conversations, but overall I guess I'm banking on people identifying the characters by their appearance/jobs/personalities rather than their names. I find it flattering when people remember the names of my characters, even when they're mentioned more frequently than they are in this comic.
