Dec Savage: The Plane of Terror

Are the odds stacked against Dec?

I'm still decided on the format. I'll probably use the pulp order (or publication order) but parody the Bantam covers.

I fiddled with the logo, and I made the image taller so I could include a "cover blurb", which makes up for the lack of dialogue. Also, the blurb means people who see the image away from the blog or the comic page will see that text and not miss the joke. Without context, it's just an odd image.

Pleased as Punch

Historically, the expression is *pleased as Punch & Judy*.

And Ken is the puppet master.

I had more exposition, but it was just a recap of last week's comic and blog notes. Who needs that, right? what we really need is a wacky Wikipedia link!

(x, why?) School Life #6: The Next Level

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

When you beat bosses together, it's getting serious.

My intent had been to have more updates this week, but this one took a lot longer than anticipated, even in black and white.

(x, why?) School Life #5: At The Beach

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

Well, someone's got to get these two together, right?

Debated whether or not to do "School Life" in the summer, and then whether or not this strip would fall into that category. (For one thing, it's in color, not black and white.) That's what I get for starting so many sub-series within the main series. Why am I even numbering these things?

How should things work out for Vanessa and Sven? Or Missy and Vaughn? Or the green-haired kid whom I don't think I created a name for...

Dec Savage: The Shape of Bronze

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

''Doc? Are we going to Widow's Peak?'' ''No!''

Something old becomes something new. I had a bit of debate with myself about how to do this. Just the covers? Do I need dialogue? If so, where to add it? Maybe underneath, or just the "alt" text. I don't know.

If it's just the covers, with no dialogue, then I spent too much time -- including a Twitter poll -- deciding on the supporting characters. We'll see as time moves on.

Also, if anyone knows how to *easily* remove the shadows from WordArt, or knows a similar program to produce the titles, that would be great.

By the way, the alternate title was going to be Dec Visage, to remove it further from the original, but I thought that that might be too far. "Visage", of course, is a word refering to a face, which 3-D objects, like prisms and pyramids, have.

Logical Progression

ObMath: The mean age of the guys should equal the mean age of the girls. And other mean stuff going on.

The dialogue for this comic was originally wordier, trying to get it where it needed to go (and even included, sort of, a reference to the above fact, giving their relative ages). Judy and Chuck have been together almost as long as Ken and Michele (possibly longer, but I'm only going by first mentions).

Stranger fact: even though Chuck has been mentioned a few times, I don't think he's appeared since comic #321 on the Fourth of July in 2009. NINE YEARS! He was supposed to be shown at the wedding, but I simplified that strip as much as I could, so none of the +1's were shown.

Don't stand in the amplitude. Don't block the wave.

Yeah, that's about all I had. That's why this became a "mini". For what it's worth, this looks like the 100th Mini I've done.
I say "looks like" because my count has been off once before due to mislabeling a file. But this is the 100th entry that has the Mini tag.

Don't be the negative one here. That's his job.

I can't believe I haven't done this before. And there may be more of this to come.
