Sorry for the delay today, all.
Lot’s going on with the movie stuff.
Hopefully ONE day I’ll be able to tell you all about it.
Also…I have a new DONATION desktop up.
I’ve been loving hearing from those who’ve won the original prints of these. It’s so fun to surprise you.
Hope you enjoy this week. And thank you again for all your patience.
that is rough. true, but rough. only family talks to you like that. time now for alex to inform dan about the lineage, the first-born thing and so on, to tell him that dan is the true king!
Well, Daniel might be saying the truth, but the way he acts, I’m sure that there is something reassuring further down the road.
I got some funny looks from my coworkers for actually laughing out loud on this one …
Dan definitely earns his brother badge with that comment!
(Go vote! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/4274/default.aspx )
Brothers can say things to each other that would leave others slain.
Things like . . . Go Vote! for Dreamland cause we oughta be in First Place, ya slackers!
Don’t worry about delays Scott –
I waited over an hour this morning to see if a plumber could get out to my house to fix a leak.
I’ve been waiting several years now for the next Miles Vorkosigan novel, due out in October.
My mother just celebrated her 90th birthday with her two identical triplet sisters.
Delay is relative.
That is perfect.
Wait, there’s a new Miles Vorkosigan novel coming out? *goes to look*
Oh, and I agree on your point as well.
Happy birthday to xaxnar’s mom and her sisters!
I don’t know, he’s done OK so far. With a little training, and some good advisers, he should be fine. And it’s not like Daniel has had much training to be king either.
“Alex, you don’t even qualify for ‘Court Jester’ material. Maybe ‘Court Sanitation Engineer’…just maybe.”
It’s sooooo much fun to be a brother.
You and the Chronicles are well worth the wait !!!!
Keep it coming when you can … we’ll be here.
thank you all!
So, this is just something I noticed, but when I lay my head on a table the part in the middle of my hair doesn’t stay in the middle, gravity brings a good bit of my hair to the other side of my head. Get what I’m saying?
That’s what I was thinking, too. But then I thought, with the way Alex’s hair looks, he could be using hair gel… it’s a possibility.
When using quotation marks at the end of a sentence, the period comes before the closing quotation mark.
It should be “King Material.”
Thanks! I’ve been making the same mistake! <:-I
Depends on if you’re American or British, actually.
You also made another mistake. The first word in the last panel, ‘Alex.‘ should be ‘Alex,‘.
I was always taught that the period goes outside the quotation marks unless it was part of the sentence being quoted.
Oh Alex, you know you’ll have to take that comment in stride, because deep down you know its nothing but the truth. Just sigh and admit it.
That, or suddenly have a massive breakthrough on maturity and surprise everyone within the current chapter. Your call.
To be fair, Dan’s probably not king material either. Neither of you were raised to deal with that kind of thing, nor live in the time period where you could learn.
Seriously, I love Alex and Dan in these last two strips. The head down on the table thing…it’s such a perfect, human kind of stance, so much more effective than if he just had his head in his hands or something. And I love Dan’s face in the last panel. He’s not laughing or amused at all, he’s not making fun of Alex. He’s being supportive, and logical, which is exactly what Alex needs him to be.
Dan is this generation’s “Merlin.” …well, kinda.
BTW! Scott, way to place a recognizable bottle of Crystal Geyser water. *I had to do a search to make sure it wasn’t Arrowhead.
I wonder if Dan will now reassure him or just keep flaming him…
Whose hand is in the first two panels and what’s going on with the fingers? It’s not Alex’s hand because his arms are under the table, and it doesn’t match the position of Dan’s left arm either — unless he switched to that position after yesterday’s comic and then switched back for panels 3 to 5. Plus it is leaning to the right so it couldn’t be his right arm could it? I’m just confused.
I’m assuming he’s shifting around.
Alex: “I’m not ‘king material.’
Dan: “Alex, everyone knows you’re not ‘King Material.’ Although the Dreamlanders would call you ‘King Alexander,’ not ‘King Material.’”
Hahaha nothing beats the snide comments you can insert into caring conversations with your siblings!
“Alex, even the granny selling seeds for the birds knows you are not material”
Poor Alex. Just hand over the sword to Nic, apologise for the scar and then never sleep again. Fixed!
“…but you ARE the King, so suck it up and deal with it. I’ll help you.”
Heh… Alex is feeling insecure, poor guy.
Brothers are fun like that. I tend to tease my cousin more like this than my brothers though, but we have our moments.
In Panel 4, the emphasis placed in Alex’s comment makes it look like a response to Daniel having said something along the lines of “I know!”. But in fact there is no such comment. I was a little confused.
“I’m not king material… you know?” As in, “you know what I mean?”
Sometimes it’s the ones that aren’t “king material” that make the best kings.
:-/ Very Good Point!
Okay. I officially love Dan.
Maybe I’m wrong, but it looks like the hair texture has improved! Either way, whoever is in charge of the 3D modeling and the texturing is doing a phenomenal job.
That drink can reminds me of Sun Vista pinto beans. I chuckle as my medication addled mind thinks of a pinto bean carbonated beverage.
Alex: I’m not ‘king material.’
Dan: Alex, everyone knows you’re not ‘King Material’.Man up and do the job anyway
Alex:You are right…I ‘m embarrassed.I feel like an idiot now…
Dan:That’s the spirit! Be yourself!
Some brotherly counseling!
Alex is fortunate that he has such people around him that he can be so straightforward honest with. It just shows that a significant part of what makes good leaders is who they surround themselves with.
“Alexander” isn’t that different to “Alastair”, is it?
