Coyoty February 16, 2017 at 1:18 am 3 years ago Ivanova is God. DmGr December 26, 2016 at 12:20 pm 3 years ago I really like your webcomic. Efogoto December 26, 2016 at 5:11 pm 3 years ago Lots of alcohol … and a positive approxiscan reading. Efogoto December 26, 2016 at 6:12 pm 3 years ago Hey, I had to go back to get the name of the approxiscan, and then I read Book 4 again (28 pages doesn’t take long), and now I’m wondering if you’ll wrap four in with five when you put out the book because I have dead tree copies of the first three, and my shelf is very sad to not have four. You don’t want to be responsible for a morose shelf, do you? Marc December 26, 2016 at 8:14 pm 3 years ago That is some top notch writing, Christopher. Although I may find myself surprised at how human Devyat is. But that will depend on how the writing continues… Night-Gaunt49 December 27, 2016 at 12:46 am 3 years ago Devyat or deviate–clever as always. love the comic, your writing and drawing are all things I like here. Why I have been here since 2010 and plan to stay as long as you will. I do like seeing the characters interact and show us development of their personalities over time. I also liked the Left Field throw that seeming aliens are derived from the human genome. And that we can mate with them. Jonesy December 27, 2016 at 8:07 am 3 years ago So, we’ve got a gal skilled with cat burglary, an alcohol-resistant semi-russian, two guys to provide mucle, Hillary-ish brain and an unwilling hero with a deadly weapon. And we have a huge amount of backstory already told to us. This sequel is going to be frigging nuts! caribouchat December 27, 2016 at 3:20 pm 3 years ago Yeah, it really is, but don’t fear: there’s another year coming after this one. Happy holidays to you! caribouchat December 27, 2016 at 3:25 pm 3 years ago Nice to meet you at last, Devyat. It’s certainly very rude to ask, but I’m very curious: do you (and the eebs) have something akin to a mouth under that scarf? Or do you use other parts of your body to produce sound and to eat? David December 28, 2016 at 4:52 am 3 years ago “I cried and pooped a lot, and then eventually I started reading fantasy novels” Boom! There it is, ladies and gentlemen; my childhood, a summary :’D Jude February 7, 2017 at 10:40 pm 3 years ago Commenting as I’m rereading the newer series (what there is so far). I like how you combined Eeb and Russian characteristics to get Devyat – skin colour half-way between Dmitri and Red-9, a faded pink babushka combining a Russian headscarf with the shawl collar on a Eeb’s coat, a coat the same colour as Ebbs’ and thicker antennae. I think we’ll all end up being very happy with the way Devyat’s personality unfolds. Christopher Baldwin February 7, 2017 at 11:16 pm 3 years ago Thank you, Jude! (and “devyat” is the Russian word for “9”) Jude February 9, 2017 at 2:21 am 3 years ago Never thought of looking up her name as I thought it was a Russian girl’s name. Thanks for telling me. Clever writer! Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
