Comment on Animazement 2016: May 27th - 29th of Conventional Wisdom

Well, it's that time again, back to the hometown con! And that cover picture is only slightly off from reality: I've got a BUNCH of new stuff to give out in Artist Alley. And yes, I said GIVE away, a lot of this stuff is TOTALLY FREE! Sure, some of it you have to be cosplaying as a character from one of my webcomics to get, but that's still free! And there's even more stuff that's up for anybody to just come by and grab! And, you know, new things to BUY, too. Can't forget that stuff. (Oh, and be sure to come see Awesomely Bad Japanese Music Videos and Shoujo Rock Heaven on Friday!)

Oh, and if you're only visiting this page AFTER the con and wonder where all the new comics are, be patient! I should have them online in about a week or so, with an extra batch of comics on Patreon a week after that. See ya then!

So... I'm kind of annoyed by the speech bubbles in this one. I like the art fine, but I had a very specific idea for the speech that just didn't work out at all. I wanted Tabitha's big motor-mouthed spiel to go BEHIND Trigger's line, both to indicate that these vents were happening simultaneously, and to suggest that it was all kind of bluring together. Unfortunately, I messed up on the size of those speech bubbles, and the effect of covering up part of the text didn't turn out the way I wanted anyway, so I rather sloppily moved things around at the last minute. Oh well.

Speaking of the last minute, I'm scrambling to get about a million different things done before leaving for Animazement, so don't be surprised if Friday's page looks even more slapped together. It'll definitely be done before I leave, though. Don't worry about that.

Oh, and speaking of Animazement, I'm gonna have some brand new Far Out There stuff to debut! (including those free giveaways for cosplayers I keep talking about) So if you're in Raleigh this weekend, come find me in Artist Alley and get some stuff!

You know, at first I only meant this to be awkward on account of the fact that Tabitha's "one of those creepy science-y people" and Stilez still isn't really sure about her. But the more I think about it, Stilez would probably be weirded out by a show of affection from ANYBODY who isn't Tax. I mean, even Ichabod, one of the few people she openly likes, is still clearly afraid of her. But this? This is just a thing that people don't do, not to her, anyway.

Well, true to my word, I finally did get the rest of that Madlib comic done on Patreon! Now, to scramble and finish those free giveaways I said I'd start giving to anybody cosplaying as characters from one of my comics...

In all (well, SOME) seriousness, it's probably easier to think about it like this: Voting Incentives are all non-canon, but sometimes there are canon events that strongly resemble a Voting Incentive. If, say, Tabitha mentions dressing Avatar and Layla up in a bunch of costumes, and there are Incentives depicting just that, we can assume that the canon events went more or less like the Incentives did... until, say, Jenna shows up or something else that doesn't fit the timeline. The canon version of events doesn't include those parts. (UNLESS you want to speculate that Tabitha dressed Jenna up during a stay at the the Hector Shelter for Displaced Mad Scientists)

SS: That's nothing, you should see what goes on at MY house...

Ed8: Far Out There canon is easy to keep track on. If it's in the main comic, it happened. If it's in a Voting Incentive, doesn't contradict anything in the main comic, and is referenced by the main comic, it happened. And if I say something did or didn't happen, regardless of the previous two, because I feel like it, it happened because I'M THE GOD! IIII'M THE GOOOOD!!!!!

Ugh, there is NO reason this page is going up as late as it is. I mean, look at it! It's just a series of close-ups! But no, I literally fell asleep in front of the computer in the middle of coloring this thing. I didn't even think to post a half-finished version of the page because I was so SURE I'd get the page finished in a timely fashion.

Speaking of not getting things done, I was really hopping to have the rest of that Patreon madlib comic done in time for this update. I mean, it's all drawn and scanned into the computer, but I just had to take a break from that to *snort* get this page done on time. It ought to be done before the next page goes up, though, so keep an eye on that.

Oh, and speaking of other comics, I got some more pages of The Killer Station of Deadly Doom posted to the new Incentive Gallery. That is, ALL of them. Yup, I got, like eighty pages moved and commented on over the weekend. So go enjoy that!

...except, if the plates are strong enough to affect the level above them, why would they need to be installed on every level? I mean, there's having backups/failsafes, and then there's just being excessive. (And anyway, that one level where "sideways" in now "down" doesn't make much sense if the gravitational effects extend beyond one level)

And that's how we end The Killer Station of Deadly Doom. On a Dad Joke.

Well, that's it! By far the longest Voting Incentive Series I've ever done (even if you lump all those "Tabitha dresses characters up in costumes" comics into a single series) and probably the best. Even with all those things I complained about, I still really enjoyed reading through this again. Hope you all did, too!

That's right! Eric was Layla's Dad this whole time! Given that the main comic did the whole "Layla talks about how awesome her Dad was" flashback at the same time as this series was running, at least SOME people saw this twist coming. But at least a couple others were as surprised by this as I'd hoped.

...but then everybody started asking how a guy like Eric could end up marrying the... "person" we saw in the very first pages of the comic, which eventually led to that retcon I mentioned.
