that’s right, smart guy, sass the creepy serial killer with the scalpel while you’re helpless. Good plan.
Jayjay! Why couldn’t you have kept quiet?
The art and detail are fantastic. I think I am in love with this comic.
aw noooooo… it’s the detective comics relaunch all over again…
I don’t get it. :(
You haven’t seen the new detective comics? With all the face cutting?
oh that, well, I saw a screenshot of that panel. Gah.
nice pit stains doc.
hahah yeah… that poor shirt. Maybe it’s kinda hot in there. It’s late spring I think… after all.
WOWOWOwow the last few pages have looked super sick super gorgeous super kickin super super
how could you jayjay :'(
hahah wow, thanks
… oh. oh god.
He couldn’t have been stupid enough to have only made one detonator…right?
Nope. Each bomb needs an detonation mechanism.
I’m no pyrotechnic, but it seems to me all one would need is for each bomb to have a receiver which activates when receiving a certain radio frequency… Why can’t one detonator shoot off one wave to which all bombs would react?
yeah… there’s only the one detonator. :V
Of course you can build a detonator with a remote trigger. Cell phones are commonly used for that. But it would make no sense here. Timers are more easily constructed, can be improvised and are not affected by countermeasures that would stop a remote from working. If I remember correctly the jail has some unspecified futuristic systems which even make thanatos security’s teleportation specialist powerless…. Also, to quote the warden: “This is just A detonator” – not THE detonator. A remote would have some kind of button or switch-like device and an antennae – which I don’t see on this detonator. Looks like a small explosive to trigger something bigger needing a start explosion to me. Till now Beckey did her research and did it good. So I don’t think she fluked this one.
Schtein was ready to “go dancing”, so I keep my fingers crossed for a deus ex machina. As long as he isn’t confined in his cell when the bomb goes off, we might be able to see something like that from Phineas or Kevin.
So, Beckey: Surprise me :D
Just realized that you go by Mr. Grundy now. Well, forget my rant ^^. Also, sorry for mistakingly unsing “she” – for some reason I associated your last nick with being female…
don’t worry about it
You’re a dude? D:
Sorry… I thought you were a lady, too. :O
it doesn’t matter, don’t worry about it. <:]
You get that a lot don’t you?
JAYJAY I HATE YOU FOREVER! D: <
Also, the colors and lighting in this page are simply delightful!
Oh and, you just gotta love Schtein for being a smartass even in this scenario, hah!
He can’t help but be a smart ass. It’s a defense mechanism, haha
If Schtein still manages to get out of prison, then probably not forever. ;) But in the meanwhile I’m still gonna hate him, hahaha.
JAYJAY I HATE YOU FOR NOW. He will do some puppydoggish thing to redeem himself later on down the line :3c
absolute and undying love for this page T_T the colors are beyutifool ;D
also, looks like somebody’s a cutter :B
Phineas has, uh, some problems.
Hardly problems. Think of them as interesting solutions to life’s little vexing tests. He merely thinks outside of the box. All the way outside.
I screamed the second I saw Phineas O_O
Awwww, I knew it was him. Do we get a better explanation for why he snitched other than “Jayjay is a dick?”
Also, colors are AMAZING on this page, wow. Super unified and atmospheric! Your colors have just been getting better and better.
Sure: “What if all these other crazy guys bust out too?” Of course it’s more likely he’s just a snitch.
No. Never. >:D
I mean, yeah, probably.
Jayjay really likes all his fingers and toes where they are and Senator Crazypants has a scalpel. Next question?
Where the hell’s Crow?
Hmm, me thinks that Phineas had a late night chat with JayJay before everything went to hell.
Oh God, Phineas is the LAST person you want to see when you wake up. D:
Also, “WHY, JayJay? WHY??”
Oh. Nooo no no no no. The doc, he was just about to spring it and take off and. aaaagh this is the worst case scenario for him. D8
man. i was liking jayjay, too. why, dude, why ;o;
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! (That’s the sound I made when I saw this page in a tiny thumbnail in my RSS feed.) Aaaaah!
Ah well, didn’t we all (or most of us) see that coming?
Lovely as ever… Especially the first and second panels. The colouring is just… Blowing me away.
Also: FINALLY! More Phineas. Time to change my avatar again! \o/
No Jayjay. Well something was bound to happen to stop him.
Things going right for Doc? Man, never!
One of these days, he’ll succeed. Everyone will smile in a satisfied, “@#$% Yeah” kind of way.
And then he’ll die, and everyone will cry out in outrage.
Henceforth the comic will be about the cat.
Woah, woah woah woaah….
Amazing colors and panel structure, really like the perspective in the first one. The expressions are AWESOME, love Schtein’s ones, specially the first, lip-bitting one :)
And even though Phineas says Jay Jay snitched him, I expect something behind that: wether he was really desperate to get out and the wardn offered him a deal if he confesed, or Phineas had a long, long talk with him before (would explain maybe the most recent cuts in his wrists? I don’t know) There are many, many possibilities, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Love the blood-stained bandages on Amastus’ wrists, and the tiny scars all over his arms. Very nice, subtle touch.
Of course it was Jayjay… didn’t you ever think why the good doctor had been assigned to that particular cell in the first place?
I’m guessing Jayjay has been a spy from the get go, in exchange for his freedom. Sounds like a reasonable trade.
WHAT NO DAMMIT JAYJAY :(
oh god i am SQUIRMING in anticipation of what’s to come
also phineas looks kind of adorable in that apron JUST SAYING
Ino, rite? <3
lol reading that and seeing your icon just made me think of Phineas saying that XD
Heh, looks like Phineas got bored of waiting for Schtein to wake up, if the blood running down Schteins shoulder is any indication. I wonder if he went Van Gogh on him? :)
oh nonono, that was there on the previous page, it’s from the guard schtein cut. :)
The little hearts and butterflies and then Phineas. You were inspired by the flash movie, weren’t you?
Oh. My. God.
I knew it…wow, this is so intense. And, uh…Amastus cuts himself? Nice touch. Makes sense.
I will be holding my breath in anticipation.
Remember, he feels no pain… cutting himself must be a fascination with blood and wounds. Fits him. Who knows, maybe he just does it to test the sharpness of his blades…
I am honestly terrified of Phineas. He gives me chills.
This whole page has given me chills. Oh man, Schtein, you are so freaking screwed. Now we know, there’s not a person you can trust.
The colors also don’t help ease my conscious next to Phineas face. D:
Gah. H-heya, Phineas. How… How’s it goin’? Superb lighting, I’ve seriously been enjoying the gold lately.
Also, maybe Jayjay was… coerced? Then again, maybe not.
…I like that idea…it’s not so bad if JayJay was forced to talk!
This page, the colors, Phineas — all my lady boners
My, Phineas, what trim, scarred arms you have. :D
Anyway, this page is excellent in so many ways. I love the huge panel, the details, the dialogue… I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Yes the scarred arms are exactly the attention to detail I noticed too =D
The first panel is also very lovely and dreamy looking!
I immediately believe the psycho serial murderer about Jayjay’s guilt without demanding proof at all! Darn you, Jayjay! DARN YOU ALL TO HECK!
Hey man … there’s asking someone a question and then there’s asking someone a question HARD.
as soon as I looked down and saw that blonde hair I said ” Oh Hell” outloud. xD Is that a special torture chair? Thats a nice touch Phin :D
well I googled dentist chairs, but yeah, same thing, ha ha. ;:D
Since Phineas isn’t having loads and loads of fun yet… I have the sinking feeling JayJay is no more.
That first panel and the elongated font made me think this was a Cave Of Wonders-themed guestcomic. :D Then Phineas showed up…
SCARIEST. FINN. IMAGE. EVER.
(And he’s smiling.)
Doc’s fear in the first two panels is tangible.
*APPLAUSE* Cannot wait for the next.
Is it me or do all pages sort of end with a cliffhanger? :P
I think that’s just a result of the unfortunate pace of a page a week. If you could immediately flip to the next page like in a book this wouldn’t be a cliffhanger at all.
That’s what makes it fun!
This isn’t looking so good. :U
Nice panel setup here; it really breaks the monotony of the classic layout, while still guiding the eye in the right direction. Phineas’ pose in the third panel is great, too. I do wonder what he’s planning on doing with that scalpel…
Nah, I don’t buy it. Jayjay’s been the only nice guy this entire time (besides Doc Peterson.) It just doesn’t add up. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I’m gonna go the Harry Potter route and say “Trust Jayjay.”
I’m also going to pretend that the next line is “…because I baked you this chocolate cake!” That’s what the knife and apron are for, right??
I like this idea! Phineas does seem like the type to bake cakes for his torture victims… He should.
Woah. The colors. I’m entranced. And the gloves, they look like legit doctoring gloves. I’m impressed (as always)
I’m less upset about Jayjay snitching then I am worried what people will do to him when they realize he’s a snitch. Snitches in prison don’t last long, no matter WHO they ratted on.
I WANT TO TRUST JAY JAY WANT TO SO BAD
Phineas could just be screwing with doc >:C he’s that kinda guy!
wouldn’t you be more concerned if he wasn’t sassing?
an unsassy doc is a broken doc :(
JayJay, how could you!!! Love the detail in this page.
hmm…I’m guessing JayJay is either sniched on his own accord, or he’s dead via a similar interrogation. :|
The art has improved, somehow, 200% in the last month. I only say somehow because it was pretty damn good before the shift. The story’s still top notch!
I’ve been doing a lot of portraits of actors lately, maybe that’s helped, I dunno.
Been paying more attention to head proportions.
thank you. <:]
I love the look on his face in the last panel. Perfect “oh come onnnnnn” face.
Sai has helped make the art in the past few pages so much better. And I thought this was the best artwork of any comic I’ve ever read before the change O.O well…HINABN is pretty great competition. But yeah. (ooh and do ignore the fact that every other comment has pretty much said this same thing)
I used to think HINABN was the shiz until I found this comic. :V Don’t get me wrong, my love for Hanna still has no bounds, but ST is slowly eating my heart. <3
well, it’s sorta an apples and oranges sorta thing. We’re pretty different comics. Plenty of room in hearts for loves. The more comics online to love the better!
Just don’t make recommendations for people for my comic on the internet that are like… I dunno… poopin’ on other comics at the same time. That always makes me sad. :(
There was this fandom secret a long while back when I still read those that was like ‘Why you readin’ Hanna, it sucks, you should read ST’ and I was like NOOOOOOOOOO… It was tragic. :( It’s okay you can like both, oh god.
Lol I understand. :3 I’d never dis one of my comics! *hugs her ‘Webcomics’ bookmark folder* I’ve got them all (in aphabetical order, as not to play favourites) on my blog for passersby to (maybe) read. :D
HINABN and String Theory are both by far my favorite comics. I just wish Hanna would update )’:
True dat. I’m kind of at peace with whatever has happened, but I have my ‘OH GOD WHYYY COME BACK TESSA!!!! *SOB*’ moments.
I’m entranced that you made an icon out of that guinea pig I drew. Look at its face. My god.
I’m sorry, I get the feeling I’m going to reply like this everytime I see it. Have I done this before? Gettin’ some deja vu here.
sai seems to help make the process faster… at first it really slowed it down because I didn’t know what I was doing, but over the course of the month I’m getting the hang of it.
I don’t have to draw word balloons by hand anymore. :O
Haha yeah, I just read through the archives again and found that. I HAD to make it my icon xD That guinea pig is just…
And that’s awesome! Sai seems pretty great to me. I should really check it out.
And no, you’ve never commented on the guinea pig before – I just made him my icon :P
hmm, perhaps someone else had a similar icon.
Or perhaps my brain is entirely making it up. The most likely scenario, actually.
:O SAI makes word bubbles for you? I have GOT to find that feature… *digs through various controls she still doesn’t quite understand on SAI*
Damn it JayJay !!!
Hey Mr. Grundy I have a question. if the Doc is seeing the stars and swirls after being drugged, Wouldn’t he see it as black and white? Not trying to be critical the thought just slapped my brain. Still see your love for drawing smoke however.
animated .gif of a dude shruggin’. I dunno, my usual answer is that he can see colors inside his head, like in his imagination or dreams, but then I ought to have made the ceiling lamp b&w eh? :I
No way it was picture perfect, its your comic dude don’t let a random brain fart from me change that up! I loved his hand made rainbows in the LSD sequence, it was great! I wonder if the Doc would ever play with his eyes and try and figure them out a little.
When he first found out they where red I laughed, and when Jayjay was frightened by their glow I laughed harder. This comic is the best keep on delighting us!
BUT WAIT WHAT IF PHINEAS IS LYING.
Kevin saw Schtein and Krow talking about the “packages” in that page so…hope maybe?
Hope for not having to hate Jacobs that is.
I still think it will swing one of two ways. When Doc was first put in his cell, Jayjay said the warden was not doing him any favors. More likely I think Phineas was told to interrogate Jayjay either as you said, he over herd the bomb talk, or the guards found the first bomb and Liz Langstrom put two and two together.
Even more likely Grundy will throw us all for a loop.
Yeah more than likely something will happen that none of us thought of :P
Can’t help but think that this is part of Schtein’s plan. I mean, probably not the torture, but having Jayjay rat him out
I see Phineas likes to cut. Guess he loves seeing and possibly tasting the blood?
We all get a bit peckish now and then :)
