Gary, i do get what you mean. I feel like im drifting a little , style wise, as well. Archive binge time!

Ok love the two of you, I would like to compare you to wizards, versatile and a bag of new tricks each time Happy

....but I miss Zara, he was like a little comic sorcerer, he got what I liked and he gave it more.

I don't know if I'm complaining or complimenting you or wizards and sorcerers. I just miss the way it used to be.

Scourge, I have two young boys, and Marsh and Povenmire are personal heroes of mine, I loved Rocko's modern life when I was a kid. (Also, Povenmire is responsible for much of the funniest stuff in Family Guy before it started going downhill faster than Peter on his side, rolling. )

Hey guys, it's Dyluthus here and I just wanted to say mea culpa for not getting last weeks comic out to you guys.

Things just got busy on my part, but I'm going to do my best to get last weeks issue and this weeks issue out for this week still.

Stay tuned Happy

Haha. 'Enjoy the trip Kevin' said by a Zebra. Someone has been watching Phineas & Ferb it seems.

out pointer, oh, you WISH we were done with him. BWAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA

Not surprisingly, only now that Keriss falls into delirium do things really start making sense. Tongue
You see, rogues are supposed to be competent in what they do by nature, even the low-level ones. But this one, however, may not be as big a newbie as we gave him credit for. Doubling his poison with drugs proves he really thought this through from from his deceptively predictable potion scam to his pathetic and amateur appearance.
The way I see it, the entire concept of this peculiar lizardfolk is that looks can be deceiving, and it was a pretty darn-good deception, judging how many people it may have fooled here(including Myself, and, by far more relevantly, Keriss).
Now one finally may say the disturbing lizard's role in this story is complete(in triumph), and Keriss' sweet, sweet aftermath for underestimating a trickster awaits. And hopefully, with any luck at all, we will never have to see the bush on his ever again, if not as part of a corpse. Wink

And things make sense again.

Dyluthus: Ahh... That explains a lot, if the speech bubble was given to the wrong person. Thanks for the fix. Happy

Afternoon all, just wanted to let you know a quick edit was just made to panel #6, changed the word bubble from Keriss to our Lizard friend Happy

I think Carrotscales is asking her about his hat not only to buy time but to test if the potion has taken effect yet. Which it hasn't, quite. What I don't get is why she seems to expect to see weird things. #panel6

Inuzuka: Read the author's comment. It implies that the potion caused this. And the lizardman's questions imply that there are drugs in the potion.

Xykeb Zraliv: Yeah, all in all, it seems that most people are confused by at least one thing.
Inuzuka - 2013/4/28
Actually I think the comic means that his Hat/Toupee has some sort of magic that causes people to hallucinate when they look at it?
Xykeb Zraliv - 2013/4/26
Oh, I think I get it now. I was reading the statement "Like the hat?" as "Fun stuff such as this hat?" which made no sense to me, but I guess it's actually meant to be read as "Do you like the hat?".

And then I guess the sixth panel is her saying that after consuming the potion it's not so weird to see a Lizardman with hair? I can't think of anything "DreamJuice" could refer to, anyway.

...I dunno, I guess it makes sense now but it's still awkwardly (and honestly sort of clumsily) put together.
Night Templar - 2013/4/26
Well, Xykeb Zraliv, I admit that the sixth panel does not really make sense to me either. I think the implication of the fifth panel was that he was randomly changing topics (asking her if she liked his toupee) to buy time for the drug to kick in.
Xykeb Zraliv - 2013/4/26
The second panel is just generally weird in the way it's presented. The two clauses should be separated into their own sentences, because the way it reads now, it's as if she's trying to imply the two thoughts are related somehow (they're not). One is quip-y in nature, the second is a serious declaration of fact, and they really shouldn't be juxtaposed in the same statement like that. On top of that, the "normal" expression she's sporting doesn't really feel appropriate for either.

The second row of dialogue just does not make a lick of sense to me. I have no idea how the fourth panel is supposed to segue into the fifth, unless they're somehow trying to imply that the tooth can make you "ignore" things you see as well as things you consume (obviously not true). Is it supposed to be a joke? For that matter, did that guy just call that thing a hat? What does DreamJuice have to do with anything? Is it a callback to the alcohol thing, and if so...why? It just doesn't make any sense to me no matter how I look at it.

I get the general idea of the strip (the potion turns out to be a trippy drug, the alcohol question is supposed to bring out the fact that she's not immune to said drug because it's not poison), but I feel like the dialogue in general is just really all over the place and I have no idea what half of it means.

on the zebra gag, considering the number of people who caught the Dr Feelbetter gag, it was a safe bet that people would get it. You all either watch way too much tv, or have young kids!
Tatsu - 2013/4/26
Yay Comic
loosefoot - 2013/4/26
Always fun until you don't mean for it to happen. Also, I never saw a snake that went "clang" before Wink

Two comics in a week! Very happy Very happyVery happyVery happyVery happy
Mad Lemmey - 2013/4/26
Another great comic chaps, love the trippy effects, work well.
I can report the drugs have no long range effect...
What IS that lizard doing with a can opener!
Anti HEROES - 2013/4/26
anyone else see the connection?
Konton - 2013/4/26
Ooooh so the potion was a confusion potion with the knockout poison added so people would be confused on two fronts.
Night Templar - 2013/4/26
So... Drugs AND poison. Nice trick.

So this could get weird very, very fast. At least it's nice to see that the potion's colour DID hint at it having some other effect.
Bob - 2013/4/25
So it doesn't affect the fun stuff. Would that include whatever the equivalent of LSD or Acid is?
