Hey!

It's another page! And that means we're one page closer to murder, blood, guts, death, etc...

I'm sick of shoveling snow. I want to get a snow blower before next winter. I'll be 50 years old then, which I think should entitle me to one.

Or should I put snow blower money towards buying more comics?

That's easy... comics.

O no I can hardly gush about this great page after reading your comments... about the blood and guts and death D:
No but really...another great page! Its not easy to have like...2 or more scenes going on at once in one page aaand you pulled it off quite well, I'd say!

Snow? What is such a thing XD. Here in "Way-too-freakin'-sunny" Southern California I'm hoping for even just ONE day of rain X'D

Anyways can't wait to see what's going to happen! Yet...at the same time.. I don't wanna see. Sheesh what conflicting feelings QAQ

Hi there HeSerpenty!

Thank you very much! If you don't like blood and guts and death, you can maybe close your eyes and skip over those panels?? '0'

My brother and his family live in San Jose. I fell in love with California when I visited them.

I hope the upcoming pages wont disappoint you!!!

You've got another San Jose reader, then. This is a wonderfully intriguing comic. Thanks!

Hi Sea!!!!!!

I hope you wont be mad when you find out what happens to Bebber.. D:

Thanks. I really am enjoying making my backgrounds more than I had thought.

Woah...there's so much converging all at once. And I now see one part of those plans you mentioned, Skweeee. ;) Very clever, Donnie!

For Piper's family's sake, here's hoping all doesn't backfire in the wrong direction.

I really like these snapshots of the involved characters right before the main event, it shows their game-face/what's coming up soon really well.

The only big player we haven't heard from is Lili, I think. I'm terribly curious to see what she's come up with. :)

Wonderful page, Skweeee! I love how carefree Piper is.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yesssss! *wrings hands*, *maniacal grin* all my planning towards a single moment that I cannot wait to get to. Just a few more things to set up, and then it's time to trip this trap.

There's a conversation with Lili on the next page that will likely leave you with more questions than answers though. However, you'll learn that she's a player in this game as well. That's all I'll say about that.

Thank you very much Spelledeg!!

Oh my stars and garters... Saturday is going to be a MESS!

Solution to snow problems: move to Florida. I did that this last August, and I've almost forgotten what snow even looks like (not really, since 39 years of exposure have etched it into my brain).

Bring on the MurderDeathKill! :)
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yes! Hence the name of this part of the Story; "A Saturday in the Month of May"

Florida sounds nice! I should definitely visit there one day.

Don't you worry, I've brought extra buckets for all the MDK (murder death kill)

Hey Dom! Rendering all this blood and guts is going to be like therapy for me.

I will get it out of my system, for sure.

Cool, there's a plan behind the edmonton shopping tour, I half-expected it to be coincidence, something the girls often do anyway. :D.

The last line in your comment made my day. xD
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
I'm glad you like that turn of events Miaubol! Every story has plot holes. I just try my darndest to conceal them as best I can.

I am going to assume that you agree with my priorities. It's always comics.. always.
Miaubol edit delete reply
Miaubol
...now I wonder what those plot holes might be. I'm not aware of any yet..

I don't count "luck" or coincidence as plot holes, but yes, there is something unsatisfying with such, so it's much much better when there's an underlying reason. :D
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
I agree with you about the unsatisfying feelings of convenient events in stories.

Have you seen Willow? It's perfect how the protagonist wins the day in the end. He just didn't so happen to come apon a magical solution in the end. He utilized his disappearing pig trick that he had used in the beginning of the film. Too many Science Fiction and Fantasy stories fall on the magical fix-all device to save the day. IE Star Wars, if you shoot down a certain hole on the Death Star, it explodes. (BTW I love Star Wars anyways)
Miaubol edit delete reply
Miaubol
I saw Willow long long time ago, have forgotten most of it now unfortunately, should see it again :)

But yes, that's a cool solution - using something which has been there all the time.

A magical fix-all device can also work, but only when getting it is part of the main plot. Otherwise it's just 'meh', cheating as well as boring. There may be exceptions, like 'The War of the Worlds'. But the author needs a very good reason for doing it that way.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Agreed.

War of the Worlds is an excellent example. Basically humanity is out gunned, but is saved by something we all know about and take for granted. So clever for its time.

Larry Niven is probably my favorite Science Fiction author. Then Arthur C Clark.
Miaubol edit delete reply
Miaubol
Yes, I think, one reason why it worked so well is that it didn't really come out from nowhere, and therefore made sense. Brilliant. But re-using it again later - not so much. Unless it's a parody, I loved the end of 'Mars attacks' xD

I haven't read them ...yet. But I hear a lot of good things about them, so I think I some day will. :D

At least we have another couple of girls that enjoy going to a comics shop!

The one in our area closed down, so I'm pretty much out of luck.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yeah, more girls are reading comics. But, the industry as a whole has a ways to go with it's depiction of women in the Superhero and Science Fiction department. Once there is some decent progress in that area, we'll see more ladies with comics in their hands.

That will be good for all of us comic lovers. because I think it means better quality comics.

I live on the outskirts of Edmonton, so there is a choice of ones to go to.

4 hours! Where do they live, Resolute Bay?
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Foxtail Creek is a made up city that would situated roughly the same way Grande Prairie AB is. Foxtail Creek has a lot of similarities with Grande Prairie.

I have relatives in Resolute Bay and Iqaluit!!

Oh, so it wasn't a coincidence that Robin invited Piper out.

I am so done with winter. We haven't gotten any more snow, but with highs of 10F, I'd take 35F and snowing any day.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yeah. I try hard not to have 'convenient' things happen. I like everything to have a reason.

It's -5C today.
iggycrypt edit delete reply

Ooh! So it's nice and balmy there! :-) According to the google temperature converter it's -12C here.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yeah, it's unseasonably warm this spring. As climate change continues to move along, the farmers are starting to prepare for the likelihood of being able to grow two crops a year instead of the one.

I'm hoping for a nice long summer this year.
iggycrypt edit delete reply
iggycrypt
I'm just glad it's at least Spring in your comic!
Skweeee edit delete reply

Ha ha! Me too. Drawing snow, though easy to render, is completely boring after awhile.

Wow, there's so much happening all of a sudden! I'm feeling kind of a mixture of both dread and an eagerness to see whatever is about to go down. ;)

(I love the way you draw any outdoor scenery, it's incredible how easy you make it seem!)
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Hey Clanjack!!

I'm glad you're eager to see what's next.

Thank you. I didn't realize how much I liked drawing scenery until the last year or so.

Oh gosh...and Robin is in on this plan to protect Piper? I have a feeling that if things go bad, Piper won't be too happy with Robin playing her part in keeping Piper in the dark.
