I love the way you draw her hair and poses!
That's clever, I hope she'll find the answers she's looking for :)
Oh damn haha. Shit, Janey she's so cool.
Hope we get to see her again one last time :(
Got to re-read this comic again soon, i think i've already done it about 3 times but its always nice to see the story arcs over again.
Weird enough my fav arcs so far is the one where Janey and Sarah goes on their first vacation together (its so delightfully awkward) and later moves in together. Its just so real, love the feeling of excitement through out them and it feels like one is reliving their youth again!
Why doesn't Lenore come and show her where it is? Come to think about things are Sarah and Janey ever going to reconcile and get back together, there still are feelings on Sarahs part how about on the other end?

I'm off work this week and with the last page almost completed on my side of the pond I'm really looking forward to just doing nothing for several days that is not SS related! It's going to feel sooooo nice!
This is also the first time in a long time that I've finished a chapter without feeling like my feet were dragging through mud for the last few pages! I was fine with chapters one and two but each chapter after that, I'd get to the last 10 pages and suddenly it would feel like the clock had slowed right down and I was never going to reach the end. It's an odd state of mind to be in for sure as the urge to get past it makes me less fussy about the art just to get through it. So I feel really relieved this time round that I haven't experienced it again on this chapter.

Next page: Poor Nikki has to suffer Sarah's new found enthusiasm for the search to continue ;)

Have a nice week!

@ohanyname!: hehe I already have a copy I bought on Ebay a couple of years ago! I wish the UK publishers would follow suit!

@skyangel: the whole of Mad magazine is available as a DVD-ROM. It's not expensive. If you don't have a DVD-ROM drive, these aren't expensive either.

@skyangel: Thanks for the reply. I remembered the van, and my thinking Sarah was being waaay to forgiving of Stacey. But some of the details had slipped from memory. That was a very intense time for the comic; dark days indeed.

And not commenting on the rest of my post? Hmmm . . . is this because my speculation is prophetic? Or so wrong you don't have the words to describe it? :-)

We'll see.

@kidcthulhu: :) Did you ever see any of the Mad cartoons where they made physical creatures out of set expressions, 'like wrestling with his conscience' or 'trying to hide her feelings.' I loved those.

@Karlijn: That's very true!! It could be a sign Sarah's ready to reconsider her future!

@Fruitbat44: If you remember way back when Janey got hit by a van and Sarah believed she was going to die, she pretty much put her atheism aside to have a heart to heart with God. With Lenore it's rather gone the other way with Sarah now so convinced that something supernatural could exist that she's struggling with her old logic in a slightly different way. I'm not commenting on the rest ;)

@Karlijn: A typical six-frames has about 100 words... OK, if you don't I and my kids will, but it'll be Afrikaans, not Dutch.

Skyangel: We can do Afrikaans, Italian and Yiddish, and my kids are rapidly coming up to speed in the kind of French that kids speak, not Academie Francaise French.

Go multi-lingual on the follow-up to S_S!

Love how the title of the page can be interpreted two different ways ^_~

@Karlijn: Karlijn, my vriendin is 'n Afrikaner. Wil jy belangstel om 'n Nederlandse / Afrikaanse vertaling van wat ook al die hemelangel te doen?

Hehe, Google vertaal 'skyangel' in Afrikaans!

---

If you don't speak Afrikaans, 'Hemel' is 'heaven or 'sky' and angel is angel. I was really amused that Google translate made 'skyangel into 'hemelangel'

Cute!

@Fruitbat44: Janey was brain-damaged because she was pushed under a moving vehicle. That was years ago. She should be fine by now.

Does this mean we're going to see Janey again? She was one of my favourite S_S characters!

If the timeline of the comic is real-time, she will probably be totally recovered from her brain damage by now. Brain damage causes erratic behaviour, and mood swings, but the brain does re-programme itself; there are scars which show up on a brain scan which will never go away, but, you know, life goes on.

Comparing the current partner with a past one and concluding that the latter was better isn't a good sign.

A very quiet strip, yet also interesting.

Sarah really does seem to be doubting the whole supernatural aspect of this, though isn't quite ready to dismiss it completely.

And her annoyance with Lucy and her fond (rose-tinted?) memories of Janey, is she getting ready to move on from her relationship with Lucy? Though like the supernatural, I don't think she's completely ready to move on.

And what will her dreams bring her tonight? Janey? Lenore? Both?

We'll see.

@skyangel: Thanks for the reply & don't work about it taking you awhile to get around to it. I appreciate you've other things on your plate.

"Not over yet?" Hmmm . . .


And good idea from Becky. It does indeed add something to the scene.
