My comic updates may be slightly erratic for the next month, since my work hours increased to approximately 500 hours a day. I'll try to continue posting 1 a day, but it may be tough.

2nd that. Honestly View I have been fallowing your comics form back on HF. Once a week post is more then what the average Comic posts. Hell PA does not even post that much. They get money hand over fist for 3 panels.

Tactful... very Tactful... not, but very insightful, Gretel. Kin'da what I'd expect out of a human 13 year old! Boy that is a good simulation...

Yeah, has to be a good sim, otherwise it doesn't work.
cattservant 15th Feb 2012, 3:37 AM edit delete reply
First simulate, then stimulate, then sublimate...

Gretel is rapidly becoming my favourite character. :P Possibly even more so than Miwa herself!
view 14th Feb 2012, 11:49 PM edit delete reply
She has a good showing, but she's still a secondary character.
Meh.Aloe 14th Feb 2012, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

She'll be a primary character... in my heart. -_-
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 1:02 AM edit delete reply
Hey its ok. Carol has always been /my/ primary character..
CyberSkull 14th Feb 2012, 11:52 PM edit delete reply
Is she blushing or overheating?

Wait, aren't they the same thing?

Could be wrong chief but I think that's misting up from the steam.

Dude out.
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 1:06 AM edit delete reply
Good job Gretel. Feel no regret! Sometimes you gotta tell em the truth because you like them.

And similarly my household work hours went to zero. Reason: unemployment fraud. Never dull around my family. I'd kill to be a Gary Stu.

Just found this and read through all of them just now, and, personally, I think these are really amazing.

Abnormal post
cattservant 15th Feb 2012, 2:07 AM edit delete reply
A palpable hit! Bet Miwa wasn't expecting that small bit of truth. And then, the issue of Hans... <that Master view is "definitely not avoiding". (Also quality is almost always better than quanity.)

Thaaaaannnkkk Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! xD I got a happy birthday from a dude whose comic should be sold in stores.

One day I will be so famous that I will make a living off just wishing people "happy birthday".
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 3:00 AM edit delete reply
I'd gladly work as your ghost writer then for the happy birthdays. You wouldnt and shouldn't be bothered to do it yourself.
Meh.Aloe 15th Feb 2012, 3:22 AM edit delete reply
I would definitely buy Never Mind the Gap if it was sold in stores. Or online! Or in some sort of online store. I would buy three copies and keep one for myself and give two of them away to other people.
cattservant 15th Feb 2012, 3:25 AM edit delete reply
Not to mention the animation!

I'd buy it too!

It's nice to know that there are some people who would buy it. But it's a lot of effort to publish a book.

Maybe someday, when I have more than 500 viewers, I'll do something to make some money. Maybe try to sell books, or some kind of "get stuff as I draw it instead of two months later" or something. But that's a long ways off.
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 4:00 AM edit delete reply
A lot of us would be there when that day comes!
cattservant 15th Feb 2012, 4:10 AM edit delete reply
Next in line! (Maybe action figures too...)

Believe it or not, figurines are actually a lot easier than books. I could have figurines on thingiverse in, like, a week. Of course, they would be irritatingly expensive to actually get printed, but by the time I have enough followers to bother doing that, the price of 3D printing should have dropped 80% or so.

Well then, Robots and Octopi and a G gauge Ricket-Rail train set! (Oh!, and the stone crab flavored lolipops that Chel likes. Could be very big with the Octopi demographic!)
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 5:19 AM edit delete reply
HO gauge. I have been setting up an HO system for years and if it was realistic style I'd buy a ricket rail.

But really, you ever sell your artwork I'd buy it (pending I could afford it) and I'd throw in whatever help I could to you if you needed it. You got great stuff here. I could see you at comicons one day!

I've been at comicons before. They're pretty low rent.
JasperWB 15th Feb 2012, 5:36 AM edit delete reply
Oh. Well then you should do more? Something like the Emerald City Comicon probably is higher rent, unless you already hit that up.
Meh.Aloe 15th Feb 2012, 7:25 AM edit delete reply
We need to get more people to read NMTG until readership reaches levels where figurines and books become economically feasible. :P

Sebine want hug Gretel T_T
Meh.Aloe 15th Feb 2012, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
I second that emotion! :(
cattservant 15th Feb 2012, 9:09 PM edit delete reply
How long has it been since the accident? Is this the first time Gretel is going to open up her feelings about it? I hope Miwa is as sensitive as she is smart...
