Last page for this scene. More old friends next week! Exciting. Well, I’m excited. I mean, I have to be.
Oh dang, TWO updates? Christmas came early. Can’t wait to see what comes next.
You’d think Phineas would have deformities and or amputations due to his insensitivity to pain, after all that’s why leprosy causes loss of body parts, other similar “no pain” conditions also lead to similar outcomes including self mutilation.
It’s not a criticism, just wondering if it was something you’d considered
he’s missing toes.
I don’t understand what the purpose of Darius’ experiment is. Just see if Phineas can feel or stand a chemically simulated pain? Or are there underlying motives to this test? Kinda hoping Phineas gets some kind of super power in reward for his sacrifice.
It might actually just be Thanatos giving the guy a reward. He might be evil, but he keeps his word (probably)! Or it could be that he’s tying up loose ends and getting rid of Phineas here.
If it works, it will end up doing one or both of two things. One, it would be helping Phineas live out his twisted religious beliefs to their promised reward/conclusion, as suggested by the guy with the laziest username in the world above me. Two, it would be the only way to inflict pain on Phineas, which gives Thanatos the ultimate cattle-prod. Both end up being ways that Darius can exert very personal and invasive control over our Professor Pain, which is unique to him and his outfit.
Thanatos is the man every knockoff of Faust wishes he could be.
hey man, you don’t get to make fun of people’s username’s. just sayin’ ;)
Haha, seeing the crown and angel wings over Thanatos, I went “OH CRAP” out loud.
Oh man and now Phinn’s like, daring him. X3 Beautiful work as always!
You know, if you just wanted to draw strips from Phineas’s perspective just to explore his FRIGGIN’ GORGEOUS HALLUCINATIONS, I wouldn’t mind at all. I’m just saying. Even though every single thing about this comic is worth drooling over, I totes fanboy out when you go hallucination and dreamscape on us. :D
Totally agree. Anyone who enjoys this sort of thing might also get into Abbadon’s “Kill Six Billion Demons” http://killsixbilliondemons.com/ It’s very much in the vein of Metal Hurlant.
I’ve considered making a comic about how he met his wife but I can’t think of much of a point to it other than “this sure did happen, it sure is horrible”
but then again maybe people would be interested anyway.
I, for one, would certainly love to read that, were you to make it.
i love how his delusions are given this sort of like, allegorical physical form. dunno if its actual hallucination, but i love the angel of death style here. gorgeous
What an incredible page!
Pleeease add more goals to your patreon, so that we can throw money at you in the hope of getting more updates.
Yes, writing that did hurt. I want my internet as free and spectacular as the next guy – I just also want more StringTheory
I’d love to update more but it’s not the lack of free time it’s the fact that I’m sick as hell, did you miss my update about being in and out of the ER? :(
Right now I’m in pain every day, sitting up to work takes a lot out of me, so I cant work as much as I’d like to.
I’m still working on the next page but it’s an establishing scene page which means it takes me longer. Lotta backgrounds plus there’s a huge crowd of people in it.
No, I was just hoping you’ve gotten better already. But… this still sounds pretty bad and I hope you could at least feel some improvement over the last weeks.
Naturally, I wasn’t trying to push you – I imagine that, even without being in pain, an artist has to work at his own speed. But I’m pretty serious about additional patreon goals, once (or if) you feel like you could use financial support for the comic. As your only goal has already been reached it seems like you’ve got everthing you want.
I’ve been following it for quite some time and this is only getting better. Contributing seems fair.
I’m just not sure what to make a new goal as. In my current state I cannot really update more often despite really really really wanting to. I’m open for suggestions if anyone has them.
It’d have to be goofy things like, patreon goal: I finish writing that history timeline wiki I began years ago and never put online. At least writing I can do laying down.
A practical wish could be for a decent tablet holder for bed (assumig you use a graphic tablet) (and assuming decent drawing in bed is even possible).
– there’s the charakters-page, which (for me) doesn’t necessarily need pictures right now, but I’d really like to get more backgroudn details :)
– I’d like to know more about the world around the story. But you probably want this to be revealed piece by piece through the story?
Goofy things :) Ascii Art of your characters :D
well I have a laptop I can do black and white art on if I prop it up on a box. I don’t have a graphic tablet, haha. Just using a plain jane flat black one.
I meant to put up more character pages the other day. Eliza is sorely lacking one. As is Jayjay. they’ve actually been written all this time I just need to draw some headshots. Just keep forgetting to.
Does this remind anybody else of the imagery from Chapter 3 when Dr. Auditore gave Stein drugs?
It’s Schtein, it’s spelled like it sounds :)
Probably the imagery is reminiscent because it’s all the same artist, haha
