*fidget* *fidget* *fidget* man, so twitchy! And look at this hands! I don’t think the medication is working all that well, maybe.
Blue eyes! Weird to color!
HELLO I AM YOUR FATHER FIGURE
It’s nice to get to see some “before the first kaboom” too. :)I love the backgrounds in this.
Blue eyes! Weird to look at… xD
That background painting is great.
Oh man, are we gonna find out more about Schtein’s kid soon?
Um, a little bit. Sort of. I dunno if there’s really that much to find out, hahah.
As I suspected Herbert must be my evil twin brother. I too am in the blonde going to white stage of my life. It’s so hard to keep that curly blonde hessian/jew hair out of your eyes when it gets long.
oh god that made me laugh
Herbert? I believe you are mistaken, for his name is Herville. I should know so, it’s my computer password.
Oh no! Now everyone knows it! Better add your birth year onto the end to make it extra secret and extra safe. ;)
Is that supposed to be the Director?
It’s amazing how much he’s changed in appearance given the coloring and other advances in your artwork. It’s like a kid; the parents don’t really notice them getting slowly bigger day after day, but when the uncle sees the kid after 6 months, it’s like whoa!
I was hoping people would recognize him without me having to point it out. I do draw a lot different than I did a year ago, but he should still have mostly the same facial features. Just now with more detail! Also I know how to draw mustaches now (well, I can do it better, anyway).
I recognized him by his expressions. I think that’s a hallmark of good cartooning.
Oh, scientists. Will you ever unravel the mystery that is the fairer sex? :P
I really like using the cigarette as a transition. Excellently done. Man, Schtein looks different – I love how you’ve placed him at this midway point. Hair still blonde, turning white; face gaining a pallor, but still pink around the edges.
Also, I love the background and the way you illustrate that it’s just a painting with that one loose panel, but where are they? I tried to read the sign, but it was too small to make out. :( If all will be revealed in the next strip, feel free to ignore me, heh.
from the sign it looks like they’re in the Station Hephaestus Arboretum. and that Shakespeare in the Park is coming soon. :)
Yeah, like the man said, it’s Station 12. It’s an underground arboretum. It’s supposed to keep the permanent residents sane.
I like your usage of “supposed to”, ha. Thanks!
It just doesn’t seem to be working!
What more do these people want? Flowers? Forget it!
OH WAIT!!!! is that girl the same girl that stabbed the dude in the eye?
My goodness, that would be hilarious! XD
bummer…i think it would be cool if Schtein’s ex had violent tendencies
Those backgrounds! So lovely. I also love all the detail you put into his hands (and I spy a wedding ring, oh ho ho). This is interesting, I can’t wait for more.
Wow. Our anti-hero was actually a good looking youth.
Sctein was prettier back then… Didn’t look like a vampire that much, either XD
Yeah, ‘that much’.
Holy crap, you are great at drawing hands. Where can I learn to draw hands that well? My hand-drawing skills are pathetic.
I dunno, I guess I just practice drawing them a lot ’cause I like drawing them.
Just trick yourself into thinking that you love drawing hands and gestures. Break them down into much simpler shapes. Easier to manage.

here’s a great post with great general advice and some excellent source images all thrown together into handy single images.
I usually use my own hands for reference, but for some angles it’s impossible. Stuff like this helps immensely.
Check out the rest of that blog, too, if you haven’t, it’s just wonderful. So much great advice and lessons for free.
Thanks, I’ll give some of that a try!
Fffff I just wanna rub myself all over his head
What is it with people who read this comic and Schtein’s hair? They always want to touch it and pet it like a chinchilla.
Yeah, I dunno, he always looks kinda greasy to me.
Maybe it’s just ’cause they know, if he was a real person, he’d hate it.
But, hell, who wouldn’t hate that?
I actually enjoy it. Lots of people have problems with physical contact.
also who’s that coming out of the sky?
Just some maintenance guy, I guess. Someone’s got to clean that fake sky.
The change between the Schtein on this page and the previous one is HUGE, it kind of blows my mind.
Gee hee, he’s pretty :D His hair is freaking awesome
BLUE EYES. CIGARETTE. PREMATURE WHITE HAIR.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD, WOMAN.
You just hit thee of my kinks. What the fuck.
The only thing im wondering is WITCH ONE of Schtien’s many problems he’s refering to…
I’m going to guess the distaste for being touched by/touching other human beings.
Damn. Doubletake on that sky.
Daaaamn, the Director’s new design looks a lot like one of my favorite professors, except shorter and heavier. That’s kind of awesome.
Oh god, as the page was first loading I got so excited. It’s a slightly more normal Herv, not better than the usual but certainly a novelty! He’s so cute… and blonde :) I love the fake sky, I didn’t notice it until I read some of the comments, and then I had to go check again.
So young, with not gray hair and not gray skin. So blonde and so normal white a man is doc.
That first panel is gorgeous. :D and the lighting! And Schtein is so… BLONDE. O_o What is this feeling, so sudden, and new…
Hmmmmm. In the second panel he has a Jonathan Rhys Meyers thing going. Nice.
Wow. Maybe I missed the boat but who did Schtein marry?
I love little subtle details like that ring. I went from thinking he was talking about a girlfriend to a wife.
Oh Schtein :C
I love how you snuck in the little maintenance guy in the first panel. It’s wonderfully subtle. :D
I adore the white in his blonde hair – actually it looks really cool. And the twitchy hand <3<3<3
Is that a wedding band I spy?!? :O
I looked back to the previous page to this and scrolled down onto a close-up panel of Schtein and was like, ‘Holy crap! Who’s that freak?!?’ And then I was like, ‘Oh, it’s Schtein.’
are his hands pink because he’s washing them too much?
You see that guy over there? Yeah, the one with the blue eyes? That’s my future husband. Foshiznits. ♥
The clouds… they are so beautiful….
I need to learn how to do that. o_O
Oh, and I love this comic sooo much!!
Wow, sweet backgrounds there! It’s exciting how the colors suddenly change when going back like this. Very effectful!
Ah, Schtein…..if only you could see all your fans.
Then, surely, you will know that you are loved. XD
Wait wait wait… they are in a building? I almost didnt catch that. Unless they arent… and theres a magical floating man in the sky :D
