@Travelingpooch: Haha true...but I'd get so bored! lol

@portisHeart: Omg if Harvey only knew how many people were privy to this conversation lol

@AphroditeB%W: Hahaha he is a sassy boy--there's definitely some attitude there! Kenneth, despite being something of an annoying jerk, is actually pretty fun to write

@Shark: That makes me so happy to hear!
It's like I blackout when I'm thumbnailing these scenes and conveniently forget that I fucking hate drawing backgrounds. But I mean I can't have whole scenes of nothing but talking heads, so mmmmegh.

All that aside, I love the flow of dialogue in this scene. I'm having so much fun making this!!

Thank you all for reading! Hope everybody has a fantastic week!

Lets be honest, we all knew this was coming. Who wants to bet Kenneth specifically waited until Harvey was taking a drink to drop this bomb?

Thanks for reading everyone! Hope everybody has a great week!

@portisHeart: All of that is actually pretty accurate for Harvey's character--he was a confused, shy guy for a long time. Later in the story he goes into a little more detail about his past experiences, but sadly there isn't too much time devoted to it lol

@deee45: Naw, he likes to tease Harvey relentlessly lol

@creedibomb: I'm so glad you like it, thank you for reading! I'm excited to keep going. I feel like Day One was just the prep and now we're really getting into the meat of the story!

@axis_rhys: waaaah thank you T_T
Kenneth is the world's most smug bastard. Harvey had to learn that sooner or later.

Welcome to the new update schedule. From now on I'll be updating on Mondays, yee-haw

Thanks for reading! Enjoy the week, everyone!

@portisHeart: Kenneth is the biggest cheater, especially when it comes to revealing personal information about himself ;D

@Olivestoday: Thanks! I always relish the opportunity to draw Harvey expressing something else besides shy, awkward, or nervous lol

@deee45: Thanks! I actually really like this scene, and the one that follows it, too--just having the boys talk to/get to know one another, following the beats in the conversation...getting under each other's skin a little bit and testing each other's boundaries. Fun stuff to write!
Oh Kenneth, don't be rude.

I'm going to be changing the comic's update schedule from Fridays to Mondays to accommodate my irl work schedule, so next update will be Monday, September 3rd, just a little over a week from today! I'll make a news post next week to remind folks.

Thanks so much for reading! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

@sstogner1: xD Harvey finally has the common sense to be offended by Kenneth's crappy attitude

@portisHeart: Some very astute observations about Kenneth! He can sometimes act a little jaded for his age, but he's somehow all of those things AND also a juvenile prick. Sooo yeah lol

@deee45: Kenneth is savage and gives no fucks xD

@IronDog: For sure--if Kenneth had any manners lol
Oh hey look, we're almost 80 pages in and the boys are finally having a conversation. Lol

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend guys!

No excerpt this week because it's basically just the dialogue you see on the page.

I know I keep complaining that I hate backgrounds, but like I still keep putting myself in this position lollll

Thanks for reading!. Have a great weekend guys!

@Olivestoday: Oh god no, lol. No need to worry about that anytime soon! if I didn't have this comic as a creative outlet I think I might actually go insane. I'm here to stay!

@IronDog: Glad you enjoyed! Thank you :D

@CarolinaD: Thanks for participating! I had a lot of fun making it!

@ZSoj: Aaaaaah god no. I took it down when I started posting Wham, Bam!. It was honestly a pretty terrible read, and the art was awful lol. It now only exists as a dusty old file sitting on my external hard drive haha
After the waitress leaves Kenneth falls into an easy silence. The late morning glare pours in through the window and catches in his hair, burnishing his short blonde cut into a bright, fiery crown. The smile he directs at Harvey is absent and expectant, his fingers curled thoughtfully beneath his chin.

Harvey has never been a particularly spectacular conversationalist, even with people he knows well, and now with the strange pressure of Kenneth's sunlit gaze locked on him like a spotlight he finds himself drawing an even larger blank than usual. The noise of the restaurant wells up around them.

Kenneth sighs out an amused breath and takes pity on him. "So. How are we gonna do it?"

"Do what?" Harvey asks.

"The check," Kenneth says as though it's obvious. "How are we gonna decide who pays it?"



And we're back on track. Updates will now resume as normal. Thank you all for understanding while my family and I sorted through the events of last week. Your patience and well wishes were (and are) very much appreciated. You guys are so kind T_T

This Sunday I'll be posting the answers for the Q+A, so that's something fun to look forward to at least.

Thanks for reading the update. Hope everyone has a great weekend <3

@Hoagie: Nail on the head, right there

@sstogner1: Absolutely, but one has to wonder if Kenneth is the best person to do that xD

@WingFreak: Tormenting him is totally what Kenneth came to town to do

@Seruta: Harvey is paranoid all the time xD
Didn't want to go a week without posting something, so just a sketch I've had lingering in my WIP folder for a while. Quote is from True Disaster by Tove Lo.

In case anyone missed the news post, there will be no comic page tomorrow. Updates will resume on Friday, August 3rd. Author Q+A is ongoing unill Sunday.

Thank you all for understanding. Be back soon
Breakfast in Stamford turns out to be an unexpectedly interesting experience.

Harvey directs them to his favorite diner—a small place on Main Street with great coffee—and as they slip into their booth he realizes just how hungry he really is. His last meal had been a soggy peanut butter and jelly for dinner at the gas station last night, and it hadn't been enough even then.

After the waitress stops by for their drinks Kenneth casts his eyes around the room and smiles.

"This place is cute," he says, resting his chin on his palm. "Small."




I'm pretty pleased with the atmosphere of this page, kind of blown out and bright and sunny. Thanks for reading! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

@portisHeart, @deee45: Ahhh whoops, here's the problem with only updating once a week--the story/dialogue gets kind of spread out and harder to follow. Right now the boys are in Stamford, the town just east of Peremont (which is where Harvey lives/works and where their motel is). Here are these super old pages for reference xD I know it's hard to recall things from like a year ago. Sorry!! Day One, Page 6 Day Two, Page 8 Day Two, Page 9

@Spoilergirl: Riiight? Woulda been so smooth! (I think the flirty look he's giving Harvey heavily implies it xD )

@Olivestoday, @AphroditeB%W: Aaahaha thanks! We'll see if I ever work up the courage lol
"So," Kenneth says, stepping close, "you're officially my hostage for the foreseeable future?"

Harvey breathes out a laugh. "I mean, you've still got my keys. So pretty much literally."

"That's right. And if you want them back, you're going to have to earn them, you know."

Memories from last night drift like phantoms through Harvey's mind, his heart doing a wild little flutter. "Sure. Whatever you want," he says quietly.




And thus scene two of Day Two is coming to a close. Can't wait for the next one—I really enjoy the scene that's coming up. Thanks for reading!

@sstogner1: That he certainly does!

@Tatooine47: Always the most important thing

@Xaryna: Oh, just a little bit of mischief here and there ;D

@axis_rhys: Thank you!! I love drawing expressions, I feel like they're so important for a graphic novel!

@deee45: So flirty, such a tease. He's one cocky motherf*cker.

@portisHeart: xD Kenneth is like "yeah you're cute but EGGS"

@AphroditeB%W: Thank you! No I haven't. I have, like, stage fright when it comes to my writing. I pretty don't post it anywhere cause I'm lame lol (and also not very good anyways)

@IronDog: xD Kenneth is such a tease
Quickly rounding the corner into the kitchen, he finds Kenneth propped against the refrigerator, dicking around on his phone in what appears to be only mild interest. Kenneth looks up and smiles lazily as Harvey enters the room, the full weight of his attention gliding onto Harvey with such force that Harvey can feel it like a wash of cool air on a warm day.

"Ready," Harvey says, smiling back.

Kenneth pushes away from the fridge. "Guess you weren't lying when you said 'quick.' Eager, are we?"

Harvey nods. "I talked to my boss."

"I heard."




Another friday, another update. Thanks so much for reading guys! Hope everyone has a great weekend

@portisHeart: Harvey has no chill, he just wears all his emotions out there on his sleeves xD

@axis_rhys: Hmmm yes why? (no spoilers :D )

@sstogner1: Thank you!! I was so excited to get to draw those first two panels b/c I didn't get to show that little moment with Kenneth in the written story. So glad the emotion came across!

@AphroditeB%W: thank you! Wham, Bam! first existed as a written story that I started in 2012. Sometimes I like to include little excerpts in the author's comment!

@Spoilergirl: Harvey's moods swings are honestly so sudden, but happy Harvey is the very best Harvey.

@deee45: he is an A+ very Good Boy xD
This page and next week's page were fun for me to draw because, since the original story is written from Harvey's POV, the reader didn't get to see Kenneth having a private moment to examine Harvey's old family photos. It was a tidbit that only existed in my head. But this way I actually get to show you guys what he's doing, so that when it comes up again later in the story the scene flows a little better because I don't have to have Kenneth explain when he saw the photos. Pretty cooool

Thanks for reading the update! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

@deee45: Seeing Harvey's old family photos is definitely making him have some Thoughts, with a capitol 'T,' that's for sure ;D

@M-24: Even though it never really comes up, my head canon is that Harvey was a wild-haired, grass-stain covered, absolutely adorable little boy xD

@portisHeart: Kenneth's bad influence is already corrupting Harvey by turning him into a sneaky littler liar xD And hmmm yes wonder what kind of memories seeing those photos is triggering for Kenneth hmmm (I'm a rat so I'm not telling!)
I can relate intensely to Harvey's phone anxiety.

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend :D

Harvey shuffles past as Kenneth pockets the keyring again and eyes his surroundings, taking in the somewhat barren entryway.

"Kitchen's right here." Harvey gestures to the room as he walks by it, heading straight towards the bedroom at the back of the house. "I don't have much, but help yourself to anything. I'll be quick."



Me: /hates drawing backgrounds/ hey why don't I make a page thats like 70% backgrounds

Also me: …Why have I done this

@Jeanettert: They certainly are :D

@portisHeart: lol I'm glad someone noticed it!! Harvey has some items in his home that he inherited from his grandparents, and that "Home-Sweet-Home" embroidery is one of them

@deee45: Kenneth is certainly very transfixed on something!

@M-24: Duuude that chair xD I actually had to google images of folding chairs to figure out how to draw it. Me and that chair got beef

@FartPoopDuty!: hahaha thanks

@Shark: If consecutive panels are from the same angle, I will C/P line art and re-draw elements that need to change, but I always tone each panel individually. I'll also leave BG's out when I feel like there's really no plot/visual need for them, (i.e. a busy BG will clutter things up and distract from character moments,) but for this page, we really needed to get a sense of Harvey's home and his private self, so I very begrudgingly decided to draw the the BG's in xD
Welp, it's 9:30 at night (where I am) but it's still technically Friday so this update is still theoretically "on time" lol

Apologies. I've just started at a new job this week, my schedule has been in flux, and honestly I've just been a little scatter-brained. My bad! New week's update will be posted earlier, I promise!

The drive over to Harvey's house is quiet and brief, only five minutes or so from the motel, and as Kenneth swings the car into the driveway Harvey endures a small wave of self consciousness. The place doesn't look like much, he knows, but Harvey only rents it, and everything inside functions more or less the way it should, so he's never put much effort into fixing up the outside into something prettier. The front lawn is scrubby and brownish, somehow more dust than grass. The flower pot on the doorstep is filled only with drooping weeds. The house itself looks shriveled from the Texas sun; the paint is peeling away in spots and the window panes are a little rusty, and the screen door at the front has a big flapping hole in it where a chunk of the wire mesh has pulled away to wave at them serenely in the morning breeze.


Awww, look at Kenneth, trying to be all polite.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

@deee45, @Kwildshine: Sometimes I just wanna give him a hug and tell him to cheer up

@Captain Apricot: When I was writing the story I did a lot of googling of rural Texas, especially of the real town that Peremont is loosely based off of, and tried to keep things as... depressingly accurate as possible lol

@Olivestoday: Kenneth may be a bit of a jerk, but as least he's a... somewhat considerate jerk? Is that right?? xD
Kenneth ain't buying your story, Harv.

Sorry for the slight delay with the update! Minor scheduling emergency at work this morning, so had to wait until lunchtime to post. Hope no one minds.

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend :D

@WingFreak: perfectly tousled in the wind lol

@Tsukimura-chan: they add a sass-factor of about 1000%

@Calorca: xD He's definitely sensing something funky, for sure
Harvey quickly spins around and ducks his head down, glaring at the white skin of his knuckles where his hands clutch the car door. Kenneth makes a sound of confusion as the roar of the truck's engine overtakes them. It flies past them, dopplering away on the long stretch of highway, and Harvey waits until its rumble is just a faint hum in the distance until he breaths out a sigh of relief.

"What?" Kenneth asks. "What is it?"




Harvey likes to literally hide from his problems

Happy Friday guys! Thanks for reading!
