Jackarais THE GREAT 9th Jun 2017, 1:48 AM edit delete

I forgot to mention on the previous couple pages, but Tag is not my character. He's the most prominent cameo of all!

Tag was created by my partner, Umbrulla, and is normally a bipedal rodent hybrid (opossum and quole, mostly). But still old as heck. He lived in a great big house FULL of antiques, fixing watches and tinkering with all sorts of other old broken things. One of his favourite things to collect was grandfather clocks, so that's why there's so many in the apartment. (I'm sure there's more hiding somewhere.)

I asked Umbrulla to design a human version of him to borrow for BB because I needed someone that could help fix Poet up. So here we are. Tag was perfect for the job. Though I totally displaced him from his lovely old house into this tiny apartment. He doesn't mind the lack of stairs, though, it's easier on his arthritic legs.

Have a lovely day,

Ahh I would love to show you, but Umbrulla's taken down all the art with Tag in his normal form. Maybe one day I'll be able to convince them to draw something.

Yes, that explains it, I checked out the DA gallery but didn't find the character, saw a rodent with goggles but that one was too young ;)

Is it sad that when I see "Loading Interface" I'm anticipating the Windows Blue Screen of Death?

Oh that's bad, Syn. We can't kill off the protagonist, the story's only 1/3rd over!

Don't worry! He can just re-install Windows 8. I'm sure nothing bad would come of it whatsoever.

Maybe he needs to upgrade to Windows 10! I'm sure all his memory files will be exactly where he left them.

And he certainly won't wake up at odd hours of the night randomly to receive updates that take years to download or anything...

Perhaps they could get him to dual-boot with a Linux kernel. That would make things interesting if he were knocked out...

Poet: *comes to* *reboots in Linux* PERKELE! *loads modules for karate, tai chi, Muay Thai, drunken boxing, jiu jitsu, Krav Maga, MMA, bo jitsu and bare-knuckle* *deletes redundant files* *leaps into the fray* *swearing in English and Finnish*

Add a sprinkling of Ubuntu for good measure. Nothing bad can come of this.

Took a little recapping to remember that Rattlesnake is the friend of the (presumably) late Rowtag-who-got-Machk's-entrenching-tool-in-the-guts, whose bloodstained top she appears to be holding. I thought at first that she looked a little too undamaged to be the subject of the beat up pic, but then I realised that her injuries are mostly on the inside. I am now imagining her teaming up with Alsoomse to hunt down Machk, possibly equipped with a large pair of shears or a burdizzo. >:=P>

The current month's poll seems to have come around faster than I expected (not that I'm complaining!). Most of the characters offered have already taken beatings one way or another, but one combination really stands out. Not only do I think that Morris and Darla deserve to be showcased this way for a second time and as a pair, but also, given the relations we've witnessed between them, they could happily do the damage to each other in a one-on-one in some Buffalo back-alley without any outside assistance. (Obviously, we would have to imagine Stonehenge standing off to one side of the picture, facepalming or yelling at them. >:=)

Indeed, your analysis is right on the dot. I don't know what possessed me to make one of the pinups an emotional beating, but I don't want the pinups to go stale, of course.

And you're right that this month's poll does feel earlier than usual. It's because I posted April's pinup fairly late in May (when I prefer to get the pinups out early in the month) so I finished the next pinup on time, and now we're back on track again. Sorry for the confusion!

You're not the only one whose hellbent on seeing Darla & Morris duke it out! I have a friend that rallies her buddies to vote for Morris whenever he's involved in the polls, so know you're not alone. X)

I also had plans to reintroduce the previously beat up characters eventually, as I don't have a terribly huge cast and I don't mind beating up the same characters more than once. If I had it my way we'd probably just be kicking Poet every month!

Finally, we get them to have some medical attention. Man, were they looking rough or what?!

Your scenes are amazing as always. Love the city-scapes especially! :D:D

(Sorry I haven't commented in a while. Been very busy.)

Thank you so much, dude!!! And don't worry, you have nothing to apologize for. I'm just thankful that anybody reads my comic at all. ^_^
