I'm back, but there may be a one-day hiccup depending on how long it takes me to play catch-up at work.

The robot they're talking about (briefly visible near the beginning of last chapter during the "mom" debacle) specializes in handling multiple remote sensor modules.

Unfortunately, she's not so good at, well, anything else. You need someone to watch fifty things at once? Sure. You need someone to shoot an octopus with a dart gun? Not such a good choice.

Still learning how to do backgrounds. Does this look like horrible scrub desert/prairie to everyone? Yes? No?

The fifth frame? Yeah, surprisingly difficult.

Oh, side note: I have a sneaking suspicion that the RSS feed images break when I upload a new version (fixed a few minor line stupidities). If you happen to get via RSS, tell me if you could see this page or not in your feed.

The background was very well done. In any case the way you portray backgrounds fits your comic style. If you had well defined backgrounds it would distract from the elegant simplicity that suits your fast update comic style. To sum up. Keep doing what you’re doing its perfect

It's less a matter of definition and more a matter of making sense with distances and light and stuff.

Wow, has it really been a week already? I thought there were 2 or 3 days before you came back. about the 5th, the only thing I see that could even possibly be bad are their eyes. But the fanservice(intended or not), and the fact that the bottom of Her shoe looks like a mouth with sharp teeth surpass it.

Well, even though I'm back, I'll probably miss a day's update. So I'm not done being gone!

And the whole reason I shot frame 5 from that awkward angle is to show her shoe! Big clunky shoe with plastic cleats and steel toes...

I thought it was to show her panties *rimshot*

Like I said/typed, I wasn't sure if the panty-shot was meant or not. It just got there because of the angle of the kick. I thought the shoe looked like it wanted to bite Jim for her.

"I got shot in the ass...with a poison dart."

Longshot but if someone gets it, it's funny.

Just being honest, about the background, it's too well groomed the trees should be split near the bottom of the trunk... more shrubs/cactus...
