Here's another late late page. Sorry about that. What's terrible is that I didn't even spend all the time I was absent on this page. If fact this is a rushed page. (Done in one day!!) So on top of being late, it's a bit sloppy. I'm still happy with it and glad that I've finally pushed out another page.

I spent the majority of the past little while vacationing at a property my wife and I had rented he here. Naramata is beautiful, and now all I want to do is live there and drink wine and ride around in boats all day.

I got some awesome fan arts from some very fine people. I am so thankful that these kind people took the time to make and send fan arts to me. I couldn't wait to show them off. (another reason to get off of my butt and post a new page) Check out my Fan Arts in the "Piper's Extra Things" tab at the top of the page!!!!

Sephinecomics sent me a lovely rendering of Piper. I consider Piper a character who is a bright light in a chaotic cosmos, so it was so appropriate that Sephirencomics' style is showing Piper in all of her cheerful glory. If you like the character Piper, then you will also like the character Rene, from Seph's webcomic Summer In Frosting Courageous young ladies with hearts of gold. Summer in Frosting is a comic I had selected to follow last year. I was attracted to the friendly vibes and the need to enjoy a story where the protagonist makes delicious food.

Songgu Kwon did a perfect picture of Piper's Uncle Donnie. I just love his style of art and inking. (I am secretly working at adopting his style of art) Donnie's character is perfectly captured here. Rather, this is how I wish I could draw him. Songgu is a wicked comic artist talent. If you haven't checked out his comic ELF then do it now. I left you a link so go there now. Seriously, stop reading this and go there now. Then come back here.

See! I know right?

In other news, my son helped me build my supercomputer. I think it might be awesome. His friend came over and called it a beast. He also said that he peed just a little when I turned it on. That's good right?

Again, I'm sorry for being so absent. I would like to be able to blame my vacations and stuff for the slow down, but I would be dishonest in not actually attributing it to my own lack of motivation. I suspect I may be heading towards a binge of drawing Piper's Song non-stop, so stick around.

Anyhow, take care. I'll be visiting your comics over the next few days!!!

Dang. THIS is a rushed page?

I officially tip my fedora to you, sir. This page is truly and cinematically epic in its portrayal of feces hitting the rotary cooling device. :)
Amalockh1 edit delete reply
I think the same, ProfEtheric! I wish I would be able to create cool-looking comic pages as this one.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hi Amalockh1,
I thank you for the compliments. From you that means a lot.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Thanks Prof!
I return you salute and tip my helmet to you in turn good sir. Well met.

Thank you very much. I try not to look at this page too much. I'm okay with it but I am already seeing tonnes of stuff I would want to change.
chris-tar edit delete reply
Aww damn, Bebber and Uncle Don are going to go face to face!?! This is going to be tragic!
Also, YES! Update! I really miss your comic! It has got to be one of the top 5 here on comicfury in my opinion!
I wish I had a new supercomputer! Your son sounds like a great guy! I also wish I could live Naramata too! (during the summer)...Lol
Lastly, I hope you go on that comic drawing binge you are talking about! That would be great.
Thanks again for posting.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hello Chris-tar!!!

Yep. It's the first big face off of the story.
Thanks! I'm glad you like the page. I'm already working on the next one and hope to have it out in the next few days.
jolle edit delete reply
Wow, he's a real crack shot! Also I'm glad to see you're back, it's been a while.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hey Jolle!!

Yeah, I was a bit inspired by the anime "City Hunter", and maybe "Black Lagoon" too. Thank you. I'm hoping as the summer comes to an end the weather will force me back inside to do more drawing.
Centcomm edit delete reply
very awesome page for a bit there was wondering if something had happened! - and the page does NOT look rushed ! love the action scene!

thank you for the wonderful page!
Skweeee edit delete reply
HI Centcomm!!!

Sorry for being away so long. It would have made sense if I'd made a hiatus announcement, but we've really been shooting from the hip as far as organizing our family activities this summer. Things just keep happening (in a good way), and my work time on my comic keeps being pushed to the right.
I'm very happy you like this page. Coming from someone I know takes very much care into the creation of their pages, means boat loads to me.
Centcomm edit delete reply
your very welcome ! :D
Miaubol edit delete reply
Bebber! He's in the car! I should have known, but I got too distracted by the cool uncle Don action to notice on the previous page xD Good job!

Naramata looks wonderful, I'm sure you had a really great time :D

And lovely fanart, both of them are captured really well, not only do I recognize the characters, they also give me the right feel.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hello Miaubol!!!
Yeah, Bebber. It's time for the showdown. What will happen..? Stay tuned (tooned).

Thank you, I'm happy you like it. I try not to look at the page too much. I'm used to using the time to make continual revisions on all aspects of the art.

Yes, that fan art was awesome. It was such a pleasant surprise to get it.
shinka edit delete reply
Rushed or not.... Great page!
Glad to be able to see one....
Good action!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hi Shinka!

Thanks. I apologize for the wait. I hope that the next few pages will make up for the slow progress.
DizzasterJuice edit delete reply
No one left except badass Donnie and psycho Bebber. Showdown!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hey Dizz!!

Showdown. My love of westerns will be coming out on the next page.

Speaking of fanarts, did you spot this?
Skweeee edit delete reply

Thank you very much for including Piper on that page with all of those cool characters.

May I include it with my other fan art? I will show it off when I post my newest page (in a couple of days).
Matt Knab edit delete reply
Matt Knab
Of course! :)
zartala edit delete reply
I love how no one has been hurt in the shooting, it's just guns getting shot out of people's hands. I worry about how that's likely not going to be true once Bebber enters the fray.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hello Zartala!!

Yes, Don's non-lethal methods here are meant to demonstrate that he is a 'good-guy'.. You are absolutely correct in that he will have to change his approach when confronting Bebber.

I'm fangirling over Uncle Don's badassery right now. Awesome page, the action is perfect!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hi Clanjack!!

Yesss! Makes me happy how you are enjoying the page. Also, super pleased that you like the flow of the action here too.
Outlaw edit delete reply
This is shaping up to be the match of the century. Cannot wait.
Skweeee edit delete reply

I'm a sucker for the oldschool western showdowns. So this and the next few pages are a little homage to that style of storytelling. I found that the recent trailer for "The Hateful Eight" has got me all fired up to make this unfold in as cool a way as possible.
Twistedfro edit delete reply
oh I'm nervous for Don...he can handle himself..but against Bebber?...I dunno (biting nails)
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hello Twistedfro!!!!!

You are right to be nervous for Don. Bebber will not be easy to take down.
Seabiscuit edit delete reply
Yay! An update!:D
Holy shit Skweeee, this is what you call sloppy and rushed???
Amazing, make up your mind- are you a superhero or a wizard??
Hahah no but really, this is amazing man! It's so nice seeing Bebber again, too :D
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hellooooo Sea!!!

Thanks! You are too kind sometimes! I'm glad that you like the page.

Wizard.. definitely wizard.

Bebber vs Don. You predicted this a long time ago.
sigpig edit delete reply
Squeeee, it always brings a smile to my face when I see "Piper's Song" in my update list.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hey Siggy!!

How are things, man?

BTW, I'm now officially posted to JPSU. Leaving me with about 24 months left to go. the army is doing a great job of helping me out.
HeSerpenty edit delete reply
Oohh! Piper's Song update, yaay!!

Omg so much intense @__@
Is it really Uncle against aaall these guys? This is gonna be like "Fury" or "The Perfect Storm" isn't it.. where there's this intense fighting for life and then------------ nevermind I won't finish.....

Great action scene here!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hey there, HeSerpenty!!!

It's awesome that you are enjoying the 'perfect storm' here. Thank you. I'm glad that you like the action here too!!
Ninabird edit delete reply
That's some seriously good marksmanship!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hey Ninabird!!

If you think this is some awesome marksmanship, you gotta check out the anime "Black Lagoon".

OH! I smell a showdown between Don and Bebber!
Don's practically a super hero! Great page!!!

Now go make Don kick Bebber's butt!!!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hi Ash!!!

I love showdowns in movies. Have you ever seen the movie "Open Range"? The build up to the final showdown is intense. And the showdown itself pays off in a most gratifying way.

moizmad edit delete reply
Who will win, the good guy or the bad guy....wait, I've forgotten who's who!
Skweeee edit delete reply

Hmmm who 'should' win?
Sleeper edit delete reply
Wow. Steve's plan kinda sucks.

Good to see you back my friend.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Sleeper my friend!!!! Hello!

Ha ha ha. Everything Steve does sucks, I think.

Thanks. It truly is good to be back.
moytime edit delete reply
Wow, this is getting really good. I like how you chose to put it in a train yard, very interesting.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hello Moytime!!

Ah thanks. You are a very talented artist. Getting compliments from you means a lot. Also, I'm glad you like the setting I chose. I actually went to a local train yard, and took some photos to help with the rendering of the tracks and the rail-cars.
sephirencomics edit delete reply
Yay, update!! :D

(Wait, this is your definition of sloppy and rushed? But it's so good!! :D)
Skweeee edit delete reply
Hi there, Sephirencomics!!

Thank you! Thank you very much!

Yes. I am actually having trouble even looking at the page, because I am seeing more and more that I want to 'revise'.

Great sequence! That Donnie's got mad shoot'n skillz. Sounds like you had a great vacation. There's nothing better than spending time in the great outdoors.

Thanks for the kind words. I had fun drawing one of your characters!

This is under control? I'd hate to see his understanding of out of control.
