One day I'll make something cool.
@kayotics: Thank you <3!

I've fallen in love with B&W over the course of working on this thing, I'm going to miss it when I'm doing my next thing D8
@Oly-RRR: You click her right boob, clearly ;D

And good observations :F!
@Glueckskeks: That's a good way to look at it!

A tale in three tabs.
(The URL is fake, don't bother going there xP)

There was a three-way tie for the subject of this chapter break, so I tried to do something that incorporated a bit of everything. I thought of something similar to this back during chapter 2 or so, but this version is a bit more relevant to the plot.

Chapter 7 should start either the week after next, or the week after that. I've had a rather stressful break so far, and and a bunch of my art time so far and over the coming weeks will be taken up by commissions.
I am glad you had this random page-drawing feeling :D

@NellyOnly: I don't think it's the same thing at all to click a button to read more comments versus clicking a button to see any comments at all, psychologically.
Maybe that could be a nice compromise though? Have the show button toggle not visibility, but max-height on the comment container, so you can see the top few comments? Something like this: https://i.imgur.com/a4UmhqR.png
Using JavaScript, it could even be set to auto-show all the comments if there are fewer than some threshold, such as 3.

@NellyOnly: The "dirty" thing was a joke xP

I usually don't scroll down for the comments when I'm binge-reading, but I can see how they can be a distraction. I wonder though, if just avoiding distraction is the goal, why not just put more space between them and the author comment, so they're less likely to end up on a reader's screen unless they actively want them?

The issue I have with the show/hide button isn't that it's more work for the reader, but that it's unexpected work. People are used to scrolling down for more, but not to looking but a button to click for more.

It could be just me who finds it annoying though. Leave it as-is for a while, and see if the average comments per page go down or stay the same (adjusted for overall reader numbers). If they stay the same, then there's no problem (either because everyone's on mobile, or because they don't mind the button).

@NellyOnly: I don't think comments are dirty xP If anything, I think having a bunch of comments gives a more positive impression of the comic and its pages, even to those who don't read comments.

People who don't care about comments are most likely not going to scroll down at all past the page, and people who do want comments probably don't want to click (or might not even notice and just think there are no comments).


It looks like comment reply indentation is a little broken in your comments o: Only the avatar is indented, rather than the whole comment, so it makes it look like the rest of the comment is someone else's comment. The extra padding should probably be on .comment.reply, not on .comment.reply .avatar.

If you put http:// in front of the link, it'll auto-link :D (you might want to also put a space between the URL and the exclamation mark, so that it's not aprsed as part of the link. Alternatively, you can use HTML in Author comments to make a custom link: It's over here!

Spectraspell definitely deserves a read, it's a great comic <3

This is one snazzy layout! I wish the comments weren't auto-hidden though. Makes it a hassle to read them, and it makes them easy to miss, which in turn is likely to discourage future comments.

You draw the best sparkly eyes aaaah <3

I'm so glad you allowed comments ;o; There's so much to say about individual pages that isn't story stuff :D Like going goo-goo for your inking, or the expressions on your characters.
I am so glad you did not wait to let Heishe lose his hot calm xP
Also, I support the venom spit headcanon.

I don't ship anyone (in general) so I've got no suggestions for this hypothetical fanservice. I'm just here to see everyone suffer 8]
Nooo protect the precious sad slimes ;o;
He's plenty glamorous, it's just... a different kind of glamour beyond our pleb understanding 8]

And that's the end of chapter 6! It...could've gone worse :D?

There was a three-way tie for the chapter break poll, so I'll make something that touches on all three topics. I already have an idea for it, so expect that in a couple of weeks, in the middle of the break!
Speaking of the break, it might be a bit longer this time because I'm pretty sure I'll have some RL drama to deal with this time. Plus, I want to take a BD-free week or so to work on my neglected game project, hopefully I can get that to a state where I can show some screenshots.

@Belgische Aardappel: I hope it wasn't too shocking xP Tim's not been looking well for a good chunk of this chapter, at least if I drew it right.

I hope no one expected Tim to stay happy and healthy for more than a page ;D

I've added a new vote reward on TWC, it's the big panel from the previous page, but including the bits from this page and parts that got cropped off. It's not much, but I thought some of you might be interested in how that panel looks as a whole.
@Tieback: Yay! I hope it works!

@Safanified: Check out Blambot, they have a bunch of fonts specifically for comics, and many of them are free for use in independent comics. There are a whole bunch there that I think would fit your art pretty well, even among the free ones!

Making your own font is also a (painful, tedious) option.

The lower case doesn't hurt, but if you're experimenting with the text, why not try another font? Serif-heavy, almost type-writery text is a very odd choice for a comic, especially one with such round, flowy art.

@JoKeR: Alas, that wouldn't have helped, as the problem was with the composition, not details.
