You could be right ;) Bah-just noticed it should have been 'cats'. I'll fix that soon.

End of the scene reached! Apparently Rath can turn pretty much any living creature into a 'hawt babe' version of itself. Not sure how useful this will be as none of them seem particularly well disposed towards him. Not necessarily upset with the situation (at least in a couple of cases) but not shifted towards a friendly (or 'very friendly') reaction either. Hopefully Alice can sort all this out.

Next page is a new scene with a bunch of characters we haven't visited in a while-should be fun ;)

Although Zeen and Rath are against each other as well (since Zeen turned Rath into a bunny and Rath switched Zeen's gender ;)).

I understand :) She really needs to get her own back some time (though she tends to give as good as she gets in the verbal sparring between the three of them :)).

The airship may have belonged to a certain other group going about their business-although in their timeline they haven't set out yet, so the main heroes story thread must be ahead of them chronologically ;)

Well, for all those NOT enjoying the stupidity of BTB (You'd think they would have learned by now-this comic is mostly a series of very silly events ), there's only one more page to this scene-and then on to something at least slightly more sensible/plotty ;) To be fair, I did have to establish that Rath can learn new powers in his dreams and I also had to make sure the other characters knew about it. These things would have to be addressed at some point-I just thought I might combine a bit of sexy mayhem with that particular piece of story ;)

'Dr Slump' was a big influence on my work on BTB (perhaps more so than Dragon Ball) so expect maybe more stupid pervy stuff than you'd see in DBZ-though the over arching plot will not be forgotten-we'll just get on to it gradually.

As I've said before, I think the pacing of a web comic can seem very slow to the reader as they only get two (or even one) pages a week. Try reading a manga or western comic at that speed. I can guarantee that the pacing will seem too slow. Likewise, try going back and reading a chapter of BTB (or maybe 30 pages or so)-I don't think it's TOO slow (though I'll admit it could be faster). Funnily enough I only seem to get the 'this is taking too long' type comments from people that are reading the pages as they are released. The people that have read the comic in one shot to catch up often praise it for its pacing. Ah well-perhaps that's one of the weaknesses of this style of content. Instead of vanishing for a year or so and then putting out 100 pages in a book I drip feed mine out at two pages per week. This can make even a relatively short scene feel too long and a really big battle (like the one with the mountain gnolls last chapter) feel like it's going to go on forever.

I don't really see these pages as filler though. I don't really like that term (filler or fan service) when it refers to actual content. If it's still fun ( and I know a lot of comic readers are hardwired to resist fun-preferring the grim dark seriousness of 'real' comic books) then it's still worth doing-even if the plot is not pushed forward very much or at all ;)

An opportunity for more mischief. I'll get on with some actual adventuring one day, honest ,Guv! But this part is like the origin story. Like 'Batman Begins' if Bruce Wayne shot magical beams of boob growth at people. Still, that's another fetish ticked off the list I suppose, and is that not what man has dreamt of since first he looked up at the stars? Probably-or at least something very similar.

Is that the same as 'Balance to the force'? Maybe Rath's powers stem from midichlorians? In which case-'Yipee!' or 'Nooo!' (delete terrible prequel line as appropriate).
