One day I'll make something cool.
@Glueckskeks: Tim's better when it comes to revenants than skows, apparently :'D
(And Roy's job doesn't really involve either, so...)
A bad time for everybody 8]

I've put a close-up of that one Tim from the previous page on TWC! Vote if you'd like to see.

@Oly-RRR: "Step 6. Wait for bite reflex. Step 7. Electrocute."
Sounds legit.

Thank you!

I'm sorry for not updating yesterday! I had a rather stressful week and hadn't been sleeping enough, so when it came time to thumbnail this page, it just did not happen. I managed to get it thumbnailed yesterday though, and inked today.

I was planning to do a double update next week, but Tim is a JoJo and that deserves its own update.

I feel like I've nitpicked this before, but I could be misremembering. It should be "a few days later" because English has A+ logic and internal consistency.

I am weirdly curious about that stippled lemon <_>
You know, if you'd given him a beard, I'm not sure I would've even noticed anything amiss.

@MoxMox: Hahah oh no! I hope your Mondays get better. On the bright side, I'm not sure this guy's waking up at all, so you've got that on him.

Early update today because I've got a busy and probably stressful day ahead of me, I'm worried I'll forget later.

I normally dread drawing big faces because they're difficult and I can't BS them as much as little ones, but revenant/dead/gamer(??) faces are just so much fun!

...I like to think Tim's nails are very nice because Alain gave him a manicure while he was unconscious >> ...Really I just wasn't thinking at all. I don't even know how that happened; my own nails are a mess, so it couldn't have been accidental referencing.

WoM's UI person needs to be fired.

I hope y'all had a great Halloween yesterday! I had trick-or-treaters for the first time in years!
I was considering posting this page up yesterday because Halloween without a BD update always feels strange to me, but I decided it would just be confusing to update on a different day. ...also I wanted to procrastinate. Working on the best holiday of the year, pfft.
I'd seen this comic around but the presentation always put me off giving it a read. Sounds like I'm missing out o:!

I don't know what Tim's :T-ing about, looks like a fine flat to me. The shelves are sturdy, the blinds work, and the mail gets delivered right to your doorstep, what more could you want?


The thumbnails for chapter 5 recently finished going up on my Patreon! They're available to patrons at the $5+ levels.

@Oly-RRR: Maybe would-be thieves are afraid of the floor that's apparently so dark that you can't see the floor ;D
It's been fun reading your reviews. Even though you described them as critiques for the authors rather than written for other readers, I think you've made them quite enjoyable even for people entirely unconnected to the comics.

I've got a question: So far, all the comics you've covered, and all the comics on the waitlist, seem to be fancomics, despite fancomics being a minority on Smackjeeves. Do you only accept fancomics for review, or is it just the kind of audience you've happened to attract? It's not in the rules so I figure it's the latter, but I'm curious. And if it is just luck, any thoughts/opinions on that?

And another: Would it be possible for the details of the rules that are in this image to be added to the rules page? Images can be harder to read, and the rules page is easier to find/access than this page.


Edit: Found a typo in the rules. In the second paragraph under rule 1, it says "It wil" instead of "It will".

Oh no. I honestly expected at least a little bit of honesty, I thought he'd have shot him when he started turning around, not blatantly in the back.


Nitpick: It looks like Green shot the entire cartridge out of his gun rather than just the bullet xP The part of the cartridge that actually goes flying is the bullet, which is round or a squat cone, and the conical empty case that held the gunpowder gets ejected to the side, or, more likely in the case of these guns, stays in the ammunition cylinder.

@Dartania: No worries, your comment wasn't over-critical at all <3 It's really good to hear from readers who get confused - most such readers just leave and never make themselves known, which leads to a confirmation bias in the comments - the people commenting are the ones for whom the problems weren't problems.


Though I tried to make it clear the first couple of times the story switched time periods, it's still possible to miss, and if you do miss it, it's very confusing. It's an odd set-up for a story that I'll probably not use again.

It would've been much clearer to use text to communicate the different time periods but I'm stubborn and felt I could communicate it through visuals alone. Apparently I didn't do that good of a job. I probably should have emphasised the past-ness more in chapter 1, so that it could contrast better with chapter 2.


I definitely should use names more, the opportunities just never come up. I've even joked about it in the comments :'D
There will be more name mentions in upcoming scenes because they work naturally in those conversations, but overall I guess I'm banking on people identifying the characters by their appearance/jobs/personalities rather than their names. I find it flattering when people remember the names of my characters, even when they're mentioned more frequently than they are in this comic.

@Glueckskeks: You guessed the speakers correctly! Tim's recalling a conversation with Alain.
I was initially going to have have the conversation happen in flashback panels instead of laying it over the "present" but that slowed the scene down too much and looked even more confusing. Uuugh flashbacks.

The things in the middle aren't buttons, but rather floor indicators. Close enough though - as long as it reads like something elevator/floor-related, that's good.

When I was drawing all the fun details on the previous page, I wasn't thinking about the fact that I'd have to draw them again on this page.

I'm a bit worried the dialogue on this page might be confusing. I'd love to hear whether or not that's the case!

@Glueckskeks: Yeeeah, it's not very clear. Back when this allegedly happened, duels weren't as formal as they would become later. Drawing his sword and fighting the skow solo with an audience present was apparently enough to count.

@Glueckskeks: The duelling was usually between people. But then a skow killed the king, and was therefore technically the king :D
