kidcthulhu
Author, artist, musician (sorta), and collector of too many things to list here.

For what it's worth, I've been referred to as Kid Cthulhu since about 1996, both online and offline. Yeah, I was the weird kid who read Lovecraft in the back of the class in between drawing comic pages.

Tony Jaa approves!
Awesome page. I need to point out that the Emperor here really really looks like an evil version of Dungeon Master from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon.
@Karlijn: We artists are a strange lot; we're never satisfied with our own works ^_~

I'm glad you liked it. I had a few ideas about Teri that I didn't think I'd get to touch upon. But then I got a lot more positive response to the character than I ever expected. So Teri will likely pop up again.
@Karlijn: Friendships can wind one-sided and abusive just like any other relation. Even more so when peer pressure and the need to "fit in" are involved.
@Karlijn: Karma can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
Those are Leeroy's hands, aren't they?
Good gag! I never suspected it was her old Mini!

Sadly, I'm with Sare here. It's a consolation prize. Take it and move on because you're only going to get hurt more. Even if you "win" Lucy, you'll always know you brought Lucy and Laura back together only to snatch her away from an already emotionally wounded Laura. I would be super awkward in Sarah's shoes and my instinct would be to flee & not look back.
This is a follow up to #743-Meanwhile In Japan. Fujin is still bitter and Inari is somehow even more adorable than before.

I didn't plan on two music-themed comics back-to-back, it just sort of happened.
Apologies to The Rolling Stones (Beast of Burden), Creedence Clearwater Revival (Bad Moon Rising), and Manfred Mann's Earthband (unintentionally hilarious cover of Bruce Springsteen's Blinded by the Light).

@Passerby: Always wonder ^_~
@Jenny: Glad you liked it. It just seemed the best way to wrap things up. Plus it means Teri could potentially pop up again.
@GmanNJ: Thank you! With my art being as stylized as it is now, it's not easy to convey real emotion without it looking like a sight gag.
@Passerby: From her first appearance, I've always tried to show Penny as a class act.
@Linn: I love that middle panel. It reminds me of the shot of Luke Skywalker entering Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi. Lara's so tiny ^_^

Shorter chapters are good. Keeping a set number will help you keep the narrative snappy and prevent the plot from dragging.
@skyangel: Thank you. Always good to see you commenting ^_^
@Passerby: Yes, that would be a shame if this private party ever went public...
@skyangel: ...and now for something completely different...
@Linn: Yeah, I tried to set up foreshadowing about this last week on #814-Tangled Web.
@Linn: "Up next, we get called out for our predatory behavior by a celebrity whose privacy we unjustly invaded. All this plus Storm Fields with the weather."
That last panel is great! She looks so serene.

I like Janis's profile. I have too many characters to make my cast section as detailed as yours though ^_~

(Speaking of characters, feel free to use some of mine for your crowd scenes. I have plenty for you to choose from ^_^)
