Hello!

From here on in, things are going to start to go sideways for all of the characters. If anything needs to be clarified, because I've failed to present it logically so far, please let me know. I will do my best to fix it or expand on things that need explaining so that it is more accessible.

Also, I'm going to start to clean up my DA account, so if you have any suggestions, before I start that, please pass them on.

I wish more people did this to drug dealers he should have used more gun .. and less boot rock salt + shotgun BIG incentive to stay gone.

Great page .. :D

Hello Centcomm!
Thanks friend. Yep, a gun would absolutely be more convenient. But, this is Canada! More fist fights per capita!!!!

Hello, Amalockh1!
My DA account hasn't been touched in a long time, and I going to have to find my password first, to start working on it again.

At first, I was like "Dang, that boot out the door was a bit over the top!" but by the end of the page I was like "nope, he deserved it" >:)

Hi D!
I'll try to make things a bit clearer in the future.

Hi Proxy!!

Yeah, I should have made mention of why the boot was being given in the first panel!! Ha ha!

Nah, it was perfect this way. Dramatic up front and then the pieces come together. Just a fun reading experience!

And the stage is set.

Nicely done sir.

Frame 3 *you're
Frame 5 *stunted (I'm guessing)

[I'm kinda OCD, sorry. I'll stop if it's annoying]
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hi Xib'!!!
Thanks so much man! I fixed the *you're*, thanks.

The second one is intentional. It's kind of a local thing to Alberta. Calling someone 'stunned' is quite common. There are a few variations as well; "Stunned Fuck", "Stunned fella", and "Stunned Cunt", to name a few.

You are not annoying in the least my friend. You've had my back for long enough, that I intuitively know that you are looking out for me. So, yeah, free editing from a friend is always good!!!! Sincere thanks.

Must be a Canadian thing, because I've heard that term quite a bit here as well… including all of Skweeee's variations. ;-)
Skweeee edit delete reply

Ha ha ha! Thanks for vouching for me! Though, I'm a bit reluctance to take ownership on any swearword variations. :D

Love the movement in the first panel!
Ed don't take no crap from them drug-dealers.

Hello Clanjack!
I'm really glad you like that panel. I struggled with it so much till I got to the point where I just gave up and went with what I had. Thanks man!

...You have a DA account!?O:

Ohhh boy. It's been a while since we've seen this guy! I wonder if this means Bebber and that badass looking crew will need to step in...;D
Eeeeee! I can't wait!!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hi Sea!!

Yes I have a DA account, though it is inactive at the moment.

You've got that right. Bebber will be entering this fray like a massive storm on the prairies. You'll see him gradually closing in.

Drugs, corruption, what else is new? Next thing ISIS will be moving in there and chaos will ensue.
Skweeee edit delete reply

Hi Mo!!!!!!!!!
ISIS would just cause everyone in the story to all be on the same side. I don't want that....

I love the sight of people being kicked out..and off of things.
He looks like a rowdy ol'guy, wouldnt want to mess with him. Reminds me of Wiford Brimley..hehe.

Hi Clayton!

I like the sight of people getting kicked around too! Yep, he's an 'old school' Albertan.

There's something odd about this page. In the first two panels the guy seems really small (the way he's falling down and compare him to the legs of the two men standing behind) but in the last panel he's about the average size (compare his size to the car). Not one of your best pages to be honest.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hi Jolle!
Yep, I'm in some serious need of real art training. It's sad pages like this one that really show my many limitations in art. I am hoping to take some art classes after I retire.

I will redouble my efforts for the next page!!!
chris-tar edit delete reply
chris-tar
"redouble my efforts". That reminds me of what one of the officers on the Death Star said to Darth Vader in the Return of the Jedi when Darth told him that the Death Star must be completed before the Emperor returns. Ha Ha

Also, here are my thoughts on artistic ability and the Comic Fury platform/venue...
Comic Fury is a place where artists and writers of all levels of skill can present their work freely to a public audience. It is not necessary to be a professional to post your work here. Comic Fury provides an opportunity for everyone to grow and develop their skills.
When it comes to your art specifically, I try to focus on its strengths in which their are many; excellent character development and unique personalities, an ability to portray a realistic environment and realistic "gritty" situations, excellent colors, fascinating character designs, fascinating legends and lore, cliff hangars, totally unexpected and original ideas etc.
I think you have one of the best comic here on Comic Fury, and I hope that you see this comic all the way though to its end.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hey Chris-tar!!!!

Thanks so much for the encouragement man! Your the perfect example of why Comic Fury keeps me focused on working and improving my art. Thanks Man.

Ha ha ha. I forgot about that Star Wars reference. I wonder if I used it subconsciously.

Oh man. Never poke a criminal organization! Not gonna end well for that handle bar mustache guy I think. Also the puddle effect you got on this page is fantastic!
Skweeee edit delete reply

Hey Dom!

You've got that right. I don't think that he's thought all the potential consequences through.
Miaubol edit delete reply

Lol right in the puddle! xD

But yeah, I fear this will mean trouble..
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hello Miaubol!

Ha ha! Yup, that puddle just adds insult to injury.

You're probably right about trouble brewing. It might manifest in a visit from Bebber!!!!! D:

Ah man, I hope retaliation is as weak as Ed assumes. I'd be very sad if the drug people come back and mess him up real good :(
Skweeee edit delete reply

Hi Cici!!
Yes! I think Ed may indeed be a tough guy, though he may be quite naive as well!!! 0:

Ohhh wow this kicks off with a bang. It's interesting to see the kick-butt part of Ed on this page! It's not really a side we've seen up til now. This is really well executed.

...I'm kind of scared to think what Uncle Donnie might do when things escalate(Bebber vs. Donnie? Oh no!), I think the retaliation is gonna be worse than Ed imagines it!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hi Spell!!!

Thank you! You have a knack for making me feel better about a page that I'm not sure about. It's very encouraging.

I think your intuitions on where the story is going are pretty accurate. Well done!

Hello RandomNPC.

I guess it's pretty clear that Ed has got himself into a bit of a pickle.

Oh! and cool new avatar!!!

This scene is so realistic I find it scary. Something like this probably happens everyday somewhere on this planet.
I wonder how criminal organizations can operate though, because if they kill every single person that opposes them, then there wouldn't be anybody left! including their customers!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thanks Chris-tar!!!!
They probably just kill just enough people, to keep everyone else in line??? I'm glad that I'm pretty much isolated from that kind of stuff.

there are too many wonderful things about this page xD it kinda reminds me of Pulp Fiction for some reason, which is awesome because that's one of my favorite movies of all time.
Skweeee edit delete reply

Ah thanks Fig!

I'm a Q.T. fan as well so perhaps there is an indirect influence happening?
