Damn I forget this thing for so long!

Hey guys, I'm sure you won't even remember this. Anyway, if you happen to still remember this, enjoy this truly late page. I was hoping to have more time to draw the next chapter, but I haven't. Life's like that.

The truth is, today is the 4th anniversary of this comic. I don't celebrate it that much, but just so you know. Maybe I'll add the next page sometime soon.

Anyway, maybe it's not Jackie's after all.

You only need a little courage. And everything looks like it's moving along quite well, but Jackie is there to ruin everything. Hey, nothing's perfect.

I hate myself for not being able to keep a promise.

So let's move on. Jackie is once again a pain in the ass. Could this lead somewhere?

Sometimes when you least expect it, life gives you a little push forward.

By the way, sorry for the lateness again. I'm on vacation right now, so I hopefully will finish to upload this chapter in a few weeks.

@Godel Fishbreath:
Thank you. It's been hard, but I guess I'm eventually getting better.
Your drawing ability seems to have improved. Congrats on a more 3D appearance. (December 2012).

With Rautho now in the same scene, this is starting to look quite difficult for Johnny. Remaining calm isn't a big strength of his. And if you add that now the guy behind him doesn't find his antics amusing...

Everyone's seem to be enjoying the movie... But Rautho's dissapointed. So he decides to lend Johnny a hand... or control him over completely. At least he's actually doing something.

It seems this will be a eventful evening. Anyway, now it's time to distract Jackie.

The wait has been getting longer and longer, and the girls are starting to notice that. This might be a problem for both of our guys...

This should be easy... or maybe not. This looks like it's going to take a long time for both guys.

So today's the big day. Everything's going according to the plan, but they have a ticking bomb inside that may explode at any minute.

Johnny's night out is crumbling down, but Marc comes to the rescue! Though he could leave him with the trouble...

Now that everything's starting to clear up, off to the cinema!

@Godel Fishbreath, Otter: I changed the banner in the spanish site. I haven't done so in the english site because I don't have much time to check the programming. I should update the wallpaper and the navigation bar, too.
I'll tell you a secret, but don't tell anyone. The 8 seconds passed a long time ago, though, I haven't said when that happened. I'll get there eventually.

@Godel Fishbreath: I have a backup in an external drive. I had one last time, but stupid me, I dropped it and lost everything in it. I'm being more careful with this one.

About the other thing, no, the title won't change. Truth be told, the name was the most difficult part to decide of the comic XD
There's a reason, and it will be revealed eventually, but I haven't decided when to do it.
No 8 seconds in Spanish
OK my Spanish is poor, I guess at words, and thus at meaning. But there is not a 8 seconds header on the Spanish side, just something about him being shy and wanting to win (someone's) heart.
Banner Change? And did he ever get past those 8 seconds? Where was that told?
several things
Always back any stuff you care about up. Never use the main drive for important storage: when (not if, when) the OS gets re-installed it may wipe the main drive, but not the external disk or flash drive with the stuff on it. At least not if you disconnect those things first.

In a sense, if the 8 seconds ever happen, either the title changes or the comic's McGruffin changes, or both, right? So we should not expect that tease to be resolved soon, right?

My PC is back again, so here's next page. I didn't have time to upload it yesterday... so Sunday.

Today, Johnny's mom hasn't forgotten what he did to his sister. Maybe he can go out, but she wants them to get along. Will she succeed?
