Comic #137: Planning Ahead

Comic #137: Planning Ahead published on 40 Comments on Comic #137: Planning Ahead

The pieces of extra wood behind my dad’s shed back home were actually the planks that he would use to build the sukkah on the back porch each year. I always thought I could get away with sneaking one or two pieces for a project like this, but never had the courage to actually try it. Knowing my dad he likely kept a mental inventory of the pieces and would know when one of them went missing. Over time they got pretty discolored and started to rot a bit, which happened roughly around the time we switched churches and stopped celebrating sukkot. Unfortunately they were too far gone for me to use for the fort at that point, so my plans never went through for a rebuilding like I’d always hoped.

I am sorry Jeston but, this means you will likely die first, it was nice knowing you.

On the other hand: If you have a name your chances of surviving have already gone up.

While I do agree with you my current bet is that Mr. Bored over there goes first quickly followed by Bunny Brighteyes. And Then Jeston will get dragged off to some horrible fate (probably to be eaten by something particularly large), while their Commander looks on in terror, falls to the ground and starts scrambling and running in the opposite direction.
Meh, it’s a long shot but hey, it could happen.

The one with the crossbow looks like he’s debating on shooting Kylar.

hmmm, kinda thought we’d have a flash back

We felt the readers needed a bit more time to adjust to Kylar before giving a flash-back of his past. No worries, he will have one in due time. Probably going to show flashbacks of characters that readers are more familiar with first though. 🙂

shows my amatureness. I thought I’d bond with him (not in that way) as his backstory was being told

Well there are some hints to his backstory at least. He followed his childhood dream (against his parents wishes) went to University, has a really nice job as a result of hard work. He also mentioned he is the only son of his family and we know he is gay (but lives that lifestyle in secret).His family seems to be protective of him as-well.

The dude in the middle is like “Not this shit again.”
On the other hand those two seemed to be fans of the whole Kylar’s story.

I just hope the new guy doesn’t die first, and the fact that people are completely going for the idea of his death pretty much makes me feel like I’m wrong T^T

With dialogue like that, what could POSSIBLY go wrong? *says that while walking under a latter. at that moment, a black cat runs across my path causing me to loose balance and fall on a nearby table. i shake the table just enough so a conveniently placed salt shaker gets knocked over and spills the salt. the salt shaker then continued rolling and falls off the table, where it brakes a conveniently placed mirror* Well… can’t get more Jinx’d then that. Well, at least I finally got that image of Kylar in those panties out of my h- DAMMIT!!

There’s a lot of clamoring about Jeston’s possible death, and I can definitely see the plucky innocence as a set up to a bad break. Though, what I thought of was Kylar’s orientation. The society he lives in still doesn’t condone his preferences or his relationship with his secret boyfriend. So it makes me wonder where Jeston and the rest of the squad fall on this issue? There’s more than one way to shatter innocence

Ah yes, that certainly wouldn’t win him any favors if they did somehow find out. It’s partially why Kylar goes above and beyond trying to be a goody-two-shoes law-abiding honorable man. He knows that there is one thing about himself that if others knew would completely destroy his reputation. It would also default any of the good things he’s done in his life as he would be only known for being one of ‘them’.

Why is it that the only thing I can think about with that second-to-last frame is how the guy in the middle has really terrible crossbow discipline? Drawn, nocked, finger on the trigger -and- pointed level with his companions’ heads? What are they teaching in the military these days? X3

Manager: Give them everything and maybe they will go away.
Employee (bill): But sir isn’t that against policy?
Manager: WE CANT FOLLOW POLICY WITH THIS KIND OF CUSTOMER, BILL! ITS NOT POSSIBLE! its not possible. *starts crying*
Employee: Whatever you say sir. Whatever you say. *pulls cap of hat down in shame*
