Oh, hey, Laurence, what’ve you been up… to… D:
Don’t forget, on sunday I’ll be posting the cover the next chapter. No delay on that, since it’s already done and everything!
oh snap! it’s the fucknuts dude!
Oh wow, I accidentally read it as
“Alice, who was phone?”
It was her father
and her FATHER IS DEAD.
Stupid comment is stupid but she has the exact same nose at Schtein and it makes me happy 8D
YES. I noticed this. It is awesome xD
Her mother has a similar face too, though… and now I’m starting to think about inbreeding and it’s making me sad.
What, she does not. Maybe some similarities because of the art style, I dunno. I’d like to think I’m capable of drawing different face structures. Maybe not? :I
And stop thinking about that, it’s gross. >:P
Yeah, I don’t see any similarities between the two (Schtein and his ex). The ex has a flat nose bridge and angled jaw, Schtein has the Roman nose bridge and a semi-rounded jaw. Their eyes are pretty different too… Don’t worry, Beckey, people just have a hard time differentiating faces if they’re drawn in a similar style.
Ah, I suppose so, they both do have long face, though. A lot of the problem is you can’t see all of her, maybe?
I dunno, I could really stand to do more studies on female faces, I focus more on male faces to be honest.
I’ll just have to watch myself and try harder to have less generic faces. I don’t really like when other artists can’t draw distinctive faces, so I’d hate to think I have the same problem myself. C:
Uh, she so totally has the pointy Schtein ears! : )
I think that the problem is her mouth and jaw. The way they stick out because of her expressions makes them shape of her face more similar ot Schtein’s.
It’s not quite as gloriously huge, though!
I like Alice. And I totally get why’s she’s got hard feelings.
Alice looks a bit like Schti-… Oh. Oh hohohooo woah I’m slow.
And they’re not only similar in looks. Her mother must be in pain, every time she sees her grumpy daughter she sees her ex.
Aw, I doubt that. Probably wouldn’t have baby pictures framed on the wall if she didn’t like looking at her daughter.
Laurence killed Martin?! Oh lord I have to hold myself back from making a Martin Lawrence joke.
also, is that Laurence’s or the dead guys phone?
I CHALLENGE you to make a Martin Lawrence joke.
The only Martin Lawrence joke is DAMN GINA and I’m having a hard time working it into anything close to relevant.
Agh, I hate when I make accidental puns. It’d be fine if it was on purpose…
I guess let’s pretend I did it on purpose, and that it wasn’t a subconscious game of word association.
Wow… Feel bad for Schtein. Looks like it’s all up to him now! Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Glad to see that Schtein’s efforts were completely in vain.
Sorry, doc, you’re getting your ass kicked for nothing.
Love the family resemblance. I adore the family portrait on the wall, too – looks like Alice is actually a ginger! The black hair and dark eye makeup really bring out the Schtein-ian pallor of her skin… I bet she’d stop dressing gothy if she knew it made her look more like her dad, heh.
It looks like Schtein is going to lose his house. Oh, and also DIE IN PRISON. I suppose we should all cross our fingers and hope for the best? Pray for a Delia-shaped miracle?
Hmmm… I may be misremembering, I need to do an archive binge, but… Didn’t Schtein have a birthday card from Alice? Does that mean Schtein was at one point on good terms with his spawn? :O
Or maybe the card was sarcastic. I bet Alice has a well-developed sense of irony.
He did have one on a buffet table in a hallway. The card was sent with genuine affection a very long time ago. The teddy bear next to it he purchased for her, but he never sent it.
Oh… Oh. :( Awww.
Laurence! I missed you, buddy!
Bwahaha, excellent, I really thought Schtein’s daughter was him for a second when I opened this. Thank you for nearly melting my brain.
And I wonder if Laurence did the break in and murder on his own, or if someone is paying him to clean up any loose ends that might get Schtein out of jail…
Of a how long time we are exactly talking here? Assuming Schtein was in the infirmary exactly at the same time as laurence (purportedly) got fired, he has been remarkably resolute in guaranteeing his income. Has he given up his house already and switched to some kind of more semi-permanent kind of residence.
All this in the presumable few days it took for Schtein to get out from infirmary, sleep a night, work a day, have a fight, have a rest of the day off and calling outside at evening of the same day? Laurence lost his faith in corporatocracy fast.
Also, Schtein has lost hair in prison.
I’m not entirely sure what makes you think Laurence isn’t doing the same job he had before. Or what makes you think he had an office job.
Dr. Schtein has the same amount of hair I am just becoming better at conveying the hairline I wanted to convey in the first place.
Although I think the idea of him losing hair from stress is pretty funny.
>what makes you think he had an office job
You made, MUAHAHAHAHAAAA!

“Jesus Eliza, I just came here here to submit the paperwork for this month’s budget!”
OK, mr. Thanatos didn’t refer his daughter by name on page 37, but who else could it be?
This kind of creepy stalker I am! (Don’t worry, I stalk Jeph Jacques and Jason Youngblurth too.)
Dude, quit trollin’.
Ah, that’s an earlier idea I had that’s outdated now, I should put it storage.
I was still working on the script for this chapter and the next one at that point, I think.
As far as I’m concerned, if it’s not in the comic here it’s not really canon. C:
Also also: HO, an earlier draft of Alice on that very same link!
…She looks fat.
Oh lawd I is so excite for new chapteeeer!
Goth awesomeness >3
I deed not keel him, I deed naaaaaht. Oh hay Guard!
Oh my god, I should not have laughed as hard as I did.
I was thinking today, before turning on my computer, that the reason why Schtein’s lawyer didn’t pick up is that someone might have killed him. Then I saw this page, and I laughed when I saw the last two panels. I feel horrible :S
I can’t wait for the next chapter now 8D
Oh man, his daughter! She’s so adorable in that “insufferable pubescent child” way. :3c
Also, I used to have that same exact outfit when I was a little twat. My mom wouldn’t let me dye my hair though…
Hahah, I think that’s the misfit teen uniform, probably. It’s pretty much how I looked in highschool, clothes-wise. Except I never dyed my hair black, only red.
I am AWW-ing so hard.
I don’t even remember where it was that I got to here from, but I think it was only a couple of days ago and I went all ARCHIVE BINGE! and I do not regret it.
Ohoho it seems Laurence and Janet are siblings? I might be crazy, but that looks like a young Laurence in that family photo. Interesting!
Can’t wait for the next chapter!
That would make sense. Laurence knew Schtein in college, so Schtein could easily have met his roommate’s sister.
Hm, not sure what the terms were friend wise between Dr Schtein and Laurence after college, but he atleast has three contacts outside prison who know he’s alive xD Four if you count the cat.
