Southern Cross

Southern Cross

by Torino
This a webcomic about a bunch of hopefully amusing people known as the eight state capital cities of Australia. Southern Cross is a moe anthropomorphization comic/gijinka comic featuring Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin, Adelaide and Perth. It's about their relationships, their rivalries, their teamwork, their personal tragedies, and the fact that they're all, at heart...a little dysfunctional. Primarily a comedy (or at least trying to be), you don't have to know anything about Australia for this. Hell, you don't even have to care about Australia either. And maybe you'll learn a thing or two...but don't worry. It's not that kind of educational.

The usual update day is Thursday, but I post when to expect the next page in the author comments.

Character poll you say? I declare Hobart the winner; despite how little screen time and how dialogue she features in this production, she invoked strong and real emotions from her audience.
^ my totally unbiased opinion
@Ariana: ditto
I know that kind of lonely heartbreak, so - because I also really like Hobart - this actually brought a tear to my eye :'D
*more hugs for Hobart!*
(she's not the only one with a totally-secret crush)
Hobart... *hugs!*
I am amused :3
All of their expressions seem perfectly well done :D even Perth, and his face doesn't even change!
I'd probably get hurt if I tried getting coffee in Melbourne, because for me drinkable coffee is like 25-60% dairy and lots of sugar ... though I do appreciate the flavour of coffee beyond that, I can taste differences, but it won't be delicious without lots of dairy and sugar xD
@L: I agree with all of that :D
I have two other friends who do arts and they both do draft sketches on paper before making them nice on the computer :3
EUROPE!
what if they went on a year-long trip around Europe? or maybe just a month or two, regardless it'd solve the debate lol
:DDDD
eheh no pressure, Can :p
I'm super glad that it ended happily for them! I've been cheering for Mel all this time (since '16, when I started reading) and for Syd since this arc too, so I am very happy.
Congrats on finishing the arc! I have enjoyed it a lot, the character development was excellent (and so were the pancakes :DD)

I'd like a requestathon! I also want to see the new characters.

PS I enjoy the Phar Lap easter egg on this page :D
I made it!
It's finished! The Valentines arc that never ends finally ended!
It was, obviously, somewhat different to the other arcs so far, and not only because it concerned the present as opposed to the past.
I may have mentioned this previously, but although this arc had been in planning for about 3 years (and I had planned to start it as soon as marriage equality was achieved in Australia), it was never meant to be this long originally. Part of the reason it ended up so long was because the original draft was a sequel to a planned Christmas special that never got done. But then the whole thing took so long its kind of surreal to not have to work on it anymore.
My main regret is that I couldn't make it look as good as I wanted to due to time constraints, and it lacks the detail of the Two Cities arc.

What's next for Southern Cross? First of all, a break. But I'd like to do some more fun things before the end of the year. Maybe I'll do another request-a-thon for Christmas, or another character poll (I can't help it, I love character polls). What do you think? Comic content will probably go back to short jokes for a while, but there are also some -other- new characters I want to introduce - not butlers, either.

Thank you for reading until the end of this arc - whether you're new or someone who's been here for years already, I hope that you enjoyed it.
-only dirty thoughts-
I'm sorry, but my mind is only going: "HUR, HUR, HUR" after reading this page.
I'm only mildly ashamed. c:
:D
This is extremely cute.
Also, all of Syd's expressions here are excellent. Especially in the let's go panel.
I'm curious to see what Syd has written to the butler! It's good to see him again, too. (And I'm glad he and his wife get to live in such a nice apartment, as well. What a view! It seems like a nice perk of the job.)
Well at least it isnt my fault the page is kinda late this time - I had it all ready to go and then smackjeeves wasn't working - and then I had to go out. Luckily it started working again by the time I was back.
Anyway, there was actually some concern about whether the butler's wife Matilda was still alive or not, but as you can see she is. He also has the NSW coat of arms on his phone, which may or may not be one exclusively for Sydney to contact him on.
Visitors.
He loves a little devil. Not sure it's the one Hobart wants him to love, however...
These pancakes make me hungry
Hobart is so cute *__*

In particular, her blushy awkward smile face is adorable.

I'm very glad that Perth is coming to see her. (...I would come to Tasmania to visit her too....)

Also, good Lord I really want pancakes now.
First thought: Hobart's smile gives me life

Second thought: RIP those pancakes
