Number six is up!

We also have a profile on Top WebComics now. So if you like the comic, please vote for us. It's good promotion.

This is the start of the First Day of High School arc. Continuity! Sort of! -Ish! The next couple of comics will explain a little bit of the background of the world of Miscellaneous Error, and a little bit about Jack himself.

Anyways, I'm going to be getting a tablet sometime soon, as an 800x480 touch screen just doesn't cut it anymore. I'm also going to start experimenting with doing outlines on paper, but I don't know exactly how that will turn out. Anyways, expect another bump in quality in a few weeks.

Aaaand I just pulled an Orwellian Retcon. I figured out how to put a little more motion in the last panel by blurring Jack's legs, so I edited the comic. I think it looks better now.

It looks like this week's comic is going to be a Wednesday comic again. On the plus side, my new digitizer tablet just arrived, so that should make it easier for me to make quicker, higher quality comics.

I'm really surprised to see a Filthy comment, because I've had him blocked a long time. I guess it only blocks him on the forums...

Your body language is really starting to talk! Your backgrounds are good early attempts, but those are not backgrounds that are easy to make: it's difficult for even a pretty experienced artist to draw cars in perspective.

You're developing a lot of habits that are okay for a gag-a-day strip but terrible for a story serial. If that matters to you, you may want to work on using different angles and letting your characters not face the camera.

@view: Once again, thank you for your praise and for your criticism. The angles thing is something to which I've given occasional thought, but hearing it from a more experienced artist carries more weight. I'll start experiencing with different angles, as I really do need to expand my repertoire.
