EDIT: Sorry for the delay, you guys! I have a dear friend visiting me from America, and I lost track of time because of friendship and good vibes. You may direct all complaints to my friend in question, Bloombeard. The next page will be up next Friday!

All rested up (more or less), our guys head off to the infirmary.

Since Machk has helped a lot of people find their way to LSC, and he's in a senior position for search-and-rescue jobs, he's fairly well known. A good portion of the people that live here know his name...and so do some of the nomads that live outside the walls. I'm sure you may have noticed.

He's also one of those dudes that can't pass up an opportunity to say hi to a baby.

In other news, it seems that disqus decided to start putting ads on webcomic sites like they promised, just at a later date than they said they would. I don't see any here yet but I've seen them on other sites--and they are bad. Stupid clickbait ads like "you wouldn't believe these 10 celebrities are gay" or whatever. Who gives a fuck? If disqus puts ads on my website I will have to remove it. Money-grabbing, spammy bullshit has no place here. I really don't want to take it off, though...you've all said such beautiful things. If it comes to that, you're all welcome to use the comicfury commenting system, as it doesn't require any login credentials to use.

Anyway, I hope that doesn't happen.

Much love,
Jack

"My baby girl is the first healthy kid born this year".
I take it that there is not a whole lot of fresh healthy food, or clean, sterile, pollution free living conditions in this post apocalyptic world? Of course, that goes without saying, yet it is an ugly aspect of post apocalyptic stories that I think most authors steer away from because they focus more on the action/adventure side of things.
There is something about post apocalyptic settings that has always fascinated me, perhaps it is the complete lawlessness of it and the resulting chaos and anarchy that produces a pleasurable release of suppressed inhibitions. A free for all where one could finally act upon their most basic instincts and carve out a kingdom for themselves. Power and glory.
But bringing up the idea of sick or mutated babies really sobers you up to just how horrible living in a post apocalyptic world would really be.

No correction possible of my previous post so here I am in a new one--I had to log in for this one! :):?
Anyway, Love the glimpse into Machk's past--whether his child or his sister's or whomver's--he has reason to be sad and glad in one.

just remove the disqus comment system entirely. I know of a few comics I follow regularly that use comicfury already just to keep the Web 2.0 stuff away and keep the site simple. you want to keep the stuff like Disqus far away from a comic site. there used to be a time when you could read any webcomic on a decent connection with a Pentium II; now you need an Atom minimum to access some of these sites because of Web 2.0 elements bogging them down and using CPU time they shouldn't need to be hogging up.

although my reasoning is different for why you should get rid of Disqus, I'm no fan of ads either; I probably won't see them if ublock is running, anyway; else, one of the filter lists will eventually add it in if it gets bad enough.

Dose shoulder studs - hopefully daddy-o will remember they're there before he tries to give his daughter a ride on his shoulders. >X=•>

I've never been bothered by these Disqus ads because I never have to see them. I use NoScript, which blocks first- and third-party scripts on a domain-by-domain basis. The ads appear to originate from disqusads.com - a separate domain which I have never unblocked - and blocking it doesn't appear to break anything else.

BTW, I don't use an adblocker or block ads as such, just the ones that require Flash, Java or client-side scripting - server-side scripted ads are fine.
