Read today's comic.


Today's comic is based on a sketch and script by Lupa ([livejournal.com profile] lupabitch), a pagan author. I just redrew and lettered it. Thanks, Lupa!

Comic for August 28, 2006!


In the seventh panel, the book cover says "haiku" in tiny possibly-illegible hirigana, and the poem in the air next to it is Basho's famous haiku about the frog jumping into the pond.

Comic for August 27, 2006. Today's comic is actually two pages long, making amends for the missed comics on January 30 and February 20. I've been tinkering with the script on this one for a long time; the first page was made last week, and the second page was made today.

Yay for the first appearance of mister non-stereotypical vampire. Psychic vampire, at that.

Footnotes from the comic pages:
* See examples of human-and-dragon friendships and heroic dragons in Greek and Roman natural histories, such as The Natural History of Pliny the Elder, Book viii, Chap. xxii (after Democritus) and Aelianus de Natura Animalium: Book VI, Chap. 63; Book VIII, Chap. 11; Book X, Chap. 48, and others. All are cited in Charles Gould's Mythical Monsters (1886) which was republished as Dragons, Unicorns, and Sea Serpents (2002).
** See the chapter on unicorns in Charles Gould's Dragons, Unicorns, and Sea Serpents. I don't have to identify specific antiquated sources that he quoted in this case, because virtually all of them ended up saying unicorns are "fierce" or "ferocious." I'd intended to make a tally of it.

New comic will appear on January 23rd, 2006.


Yes, it's a brand-new, fully-finished comic this time! I've been working with the time management schedules, as promised, and it's helped me work the comic into my time a bit better. I found that laying out, drawing, lettering, and inking today's comic took five hours total... not counting the preliminary sketches, and the cleanup and tinting that I did after I scanned it into the computer. Writing the script doesn't even count into the time in this instance, since it's a guest script. Thanks, Baxil!

Theri There page from 2005-11-14.

Notes:
Today’s comic was inspired by a certain thread in the Theri There community ( therithere.livejournal.com/2167.html?thread=25719#t25719 ) where Kyoudai mentioned having had an experience of receiving sensory feedback from a phantom limb, as shown. This could be called a rather odd way of having ESP, Extra Sensory Perception.
Kitsune are a kind of Japanese mythological creature. They’re shapeshifting fox-spirits, cunning magical tricksters. While I could have shown the kitsune in this comic as being like a real-world fox, I preferred kitsune as depicted in Hiroshige’s prints.

Transcript:
An otherkin who is a Japanese fox spirit (kitsune) browses a bookshelf. Someone tries to sneak up and surprise them, but bumps into their phantom tail. The kitsune thinks, “Hmm… it feels like someone is standing behind me!” The caption says, “Watch out for kitsune… their butts have ESP.”
