That guard is gettin’ too old for this shit!
Whoooaaa, Schtein became badass as hell! Though I have to say, Phineas and his hilarious nonchalance are quite awesome in contrast. And such a handsome bastard too! Also, is Phineas wearing his wedding band around his neck? I am strangely touched by that…. Though, I’m surprised they’re allowed strings like that in prison, considering their murdery, suicidy versatility. But then again, all their shoes seem to have laces, so maybe it’s just not that big of a concern for the inmates there. Also, the cat that seems to be eating Schtein’s bed? Awesome.
it’s only medium security, and honestly garrottes and nooses can be made of anything, including ripped up bed sheets/clothes, so what’s the point of disallowing shoelaces and strings?
I love drawing that little devil/cat thing above his pillow. It’s such a stupid graffiti.
I have been reading your comics since the beginning of the second chapter, and I got to say, this story has enthralled me, I wait all week to read these, I only wish that you could make more than one a week. But the story so far has gotten amazing, so many questions, so many ideas.(This is also the first time I have decided to comment) XD
Man I wish I could update more, too! Yaaay I’m glad there are all sorts of questions and mysteries. It’s hard for me to tell if there are since I know all the answers, ha ha.
That guard is only three days away from retirement, too.
He’s totally checked out early. Not even going to try anymore.
I would’ve gone straight for the strangle. More effective. Phineas’s attitude is highly amusing.
But strangling is for bad guys. Schtein’s the good guy . . . right? RIGHT?!
Stein’s more of a lawful neutral, IMO. He could swing either way.
“For the last time! I’m not evil! I’m Chaotic Neutral!”
Nah, he didn’t STRANGLE Phin, he strangled the AIR in the general vicinity of his neck.
Schtein totally paffed like loose cotton :D
Top three panels are full of awesome angles. So awesome.
To quote Hellboy: “I landed on my feet. And I landed MAD.”
The guy in the cell next to them, hahahaha.
In this comic, people with glasses go to prison. A lot.
I LOVE the way Schtein’s body language has changed. All those effeminate poses before are pretty much gone right now…. Although I do kinda miss them. Ah, well, Jayjay’s little folded-in posture is adorable enough for me.
well, don’t worry, they’re a part of his core personality. I’m sure he’ll be back to being a big teenage girl in no time.
Funny thing about getting punched in the face, Phin . . . even if you act like it ain’t no big deal before or after, while it’s happening you’ve still got “OW SHIT I JUST GOT PUNCHED IN THE FACE” face.
this is the best page ever. I love how Schtein is all NOW IT’S ON BITCH and then he fights like a little girl. So awesome.
I’d say Jacobs is doing the “little girl” bit. Ol’ Schtein just needs more fight experience. Swing down across the bridge of the nose, man! Have him gurgling on his own blood while you set into his ribs.
the first draft of the page had that, but it was unrealistic. Also I didn’t want them to burn his gloves again.
Aww, good to know that you can scrap! That sort of knowledge comes from first-hand experience, to be sure.
There are so many things I’d like to say about this page but they’ve all been covered, so I’ll just show generic appreciation for this excellent comic.
I thank you for your generic appreciation, then. :D
i love this comic
*Props* for the awesome comic!
Behold Schtein’s third panel action face! I find mad scientists nowadays lack that rumble and tumble attitude Schtein has.
Really cool. The first panel is great too.
hm! lovely page! I wonder, what is that ring that seems to be dangling around Phineas’ neck?
it’s a wedding ring.
… I am trying to imagine Phineas as a married man. O_O
Not only is Phineas a married man, but according to JJ his wife was his partner in crime (chapter 2, page 53).
Oh, good! I was afraid he was married to someone -normal-…. Which was kind of a silly thing to think, really.
I like to think Schtein hit him for both of us.
I mean, I felt better after that punch,
even if it was a wussy punch ^^
at least SOMEONE has the balls to smack phineas in the face. Even if he’s not the best at face-smackin’. :C
heck yeah. it’s all about the initiative.
I’ve been reading this comic for a while as a lurker. Especially the last three panels, I don’t know what you did but your art has really improved! I mean, I am just gushing over how good it is. If you have a secret to improve like this, please, do tell.
My secret is loathing everything I do. But at the same time being confident that I can do better!
And also lookin’ at things.
And thank you! :3
Ohmygod the first three panels. WHY CANT THIS UPDATE MORE ;w; *hurt puppy whimper*
In all seriousness though, you should obviously take as much time as you need to make a page. I would hate for any comic artist to downgrade the quality, just in order to update faster. Especially for this comic. It has such a unique style and coloring that I love, and I would hate for that to be diminished in any way. You are an amazing person for drawing this ^^
I’ve been trying to update faster but each page takes so long to do. Oh well, at least in my efforts to update more often I’ve been updating on time! >:/
But still, I’d really rather update twice a week.
I figure the comic takes as long as it should need, to maintain quality. Haste makes waste.
Kill him. Kill him now.
Little cockroach man — deserves to be smeared on the linoleum.
:D Fantastic comic. Wonderfully written.
love the panel where schtein kind of scooches out before jumping but i the downward movement meant to be expressed by the next panel didn’t read very well for me personally.
yeah , hmm. conveying stuff like that is hard and will require more practice, I think. Still better than my first draft of this page, though. The three top panels were not side by side so it was even more confusing. D:
AWWWE! Wedding ring!! :DDD
I love Phineas. Nice to see him get his ass kicked once in a while. The ring around his neck intrigued me, then I read the comments. Wedding ring, huh? That is strangely adiorable that he still has it. :D
Amazing as always. <3 Also the camera angles just… Wow, blew my mind. The first three panels are just spectacular, and the sixth one… <3 The last one is great though, I love how calm Phineas is in contrast to how furious Schtein looks. The 'strangle hands' are a nice touch as well. :3
Phineas is having a grand old time.
I love the action on this page, and it’s interesting to consider that I doubt Schtein would have reacted this way before spending all that time in solitary. Dynamic characters are the best kind!
Question, though: Why does Phin call Schtein “Hervert”? Isn’t his name Herville?
he is a humor man makin’ the humor jokes out of people’s already humorous names.
Uh, I dunno, Dr. Schtein was already pretty loose cannon man-handly in the first chapter… though maybe not quite THIS violent.
Prison … changes a man.
Hahah, oh man, how can this comic just keep getting better and better? There has to be a limit somewhere.
And Phineas, stop slithering your creepy way into my heart.
no, it has to keep getting better forever. No cap. I’ll be 80 and it’ll be like… a master painting and every page will take me a month to do. :V
pssh, he’s just losing it around the temples, whatever. Makes him look more refined. You know when he’s not strangling people.
I see a ring in there, I had no idea Phineas was headed to Mordor.
He was not. He’s luring Mordor into his cell, so he’ll have some company for those lonely nights without his students. *cough*
Phineas wouldn’t want to destroy the ring, he would want to USE it.
At first it would seem like Phineas became Saurons slave, but after a while people may wonder if it wasn’t the other way around.
Pretty soon he’ll be taking the Hobbits to Isengard.
I feel like “taking the Hobbits to Isengard” should be a euphemism for something dirty.
I approve of this.
It’s a diversion, baby
I’ll take YOUR hobbits to Isengard! Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more…
I made a euphemism out of “voting for Nader” once.
The passion in those last 3 panels. GLORIOUS. Jayjay’s horror and alarm mixed with Finn’s singsong voice is REEALLY scary, like Finn’s gonna reach out and pull him in. D8
I have a nit–the 2 panels in the second row, how JayJay seems to switch places with Schtein–I just can’t see him crossing between them fast enough. (shrug) I didn’t notice it the first read-through, tho.
Oh, and your comment for this page? LOVE it.
C’mon, Schtein, you can do better than a “paff.”
Well, it did turn his head around. Could be Phineas is a tough ol’ goat. Some folks can take a beating pretty well. Conditioning, is all.
Third panel = business
My gosh, I love how you draw faces. FFFAAAACCCCCEEESSSS.
Schtein’s face of sheer and utter rage pretty much made my day.
And Phineas just laughs. Lordy, is everyone in this prison an unstable psycho?
Isn’t that what prison’s for?
Oh, geez. Schtein just lost it. Very awesome artwork, BTW. You’re improving by the day!
Props for the awesomeness!! I too think the “paff” is brilliant! It’s almost like he telegraphed it on purpose, so maybe he can pull off a shank type stunt later.
LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
Damn it, now I’m reading that guys lines in Mark Hamil’s Joker voice and nothing will stop that…
that’s actually not that far off from how I read them myself… He’s certainly loud and theatrical enough.
Personally, I hear Chuck Huber’s Stein (from Soul Eater). Monotonous for the most part.
Ugh, this is like porn for me.
Eeeeee, this action is just too awesome. :D Go, go, Schtein~!!
