Only 8 more days to go for our Kickstarter for Dreamland Book Five!
Can we hit $15k by then?
The search begins…
Pretty 1337 page…
Don’t have to apologize; I’m sure half of the Dreamlanders are thinking the exact same thing.
i dont get it…:p
1337 is leetspeak for “leet”, which derives from the word “elite”. Basically it’s one way internet geeks attempt to make themselves sound cool. Not that it works, but they think it does.
I thought it reached back all the way to calculator humor, like here.
I always reference this comic whenever someone asks how leet works. (Don’t worry, this page is safe for work.)
BAHA. I was thinking the exact same thing.
Glad I wasn’t the only one thinking this!
I really should avoid watching the Clone Wars. Took Paddington for an incoming LAAT in the first panel.
noooo don’t land on it paddington…
Agreed! It’s not even certain it can support Alex’s weight alone, even less Nastajia’s added weight. Imagine a rock giant landing on top of that!! 8-.
“Oups. I’m SORRY, Alex!”
On the other hand, are we now finally going to get info on what these marvellous arches once was? *curious!*
Could Seraphopolis be the city of ARCHons.
You are horrible for that pun. I hope your happy with your self.
Perhaps I deserve punishment.
“Thank you for using Dreamland airways. Please do not ruin the landing site with fights for freedom or enraged attack. Have a nice day!”
Great page, Scott! I love that pastel look of the sky and clouds. As was said, pretty.
I love the atmospherics, particularly in the first panel.
Agreed! I laughed out loud at Paddington’s sky shadow!
Yep! Beautiful environs!
Geeeeeez… that’s just pretty. You’ve outdone yourself again, Scott.
nice background work in this, love the first panel.
Thank you all!
The page took quite a bit of photoshop, actually. But I think it turned out pretty well.
Tuesday’s page is still rendering. So look for it in the morning. I’ll post it after the boys head off for school.
I love the hover on the comic image: “Page 1337″. It’s not just 1337, it’s PAGE 1337.
Yes. I am a nerd.
You’re in good company here.
I love the skies in these panels!
i now right they are amazing
oh ya and how do you make the smiles??!!
I do hope you read these, Scott, because I am only trying to help you and mean this in the nicest way possible- Please, stop commenting on your own site under other names. It is really very noticeable, and distracts from the comic itself. If you do need to comment on yourself, at least try to be more subtle about it. Vary your speech and names more- although you have gotten better at this over the course of the comic, each comment needs to sound like a different individual. Think of a friend who is your polar opposite, and write in the tone you think he or she would use.
Also, the comments section at the bottom of the page is a discussion. Everyone has different opinions, and not all fans will like the page as much as others. Under a false name, gently criticize your own work, and even point out what you did wrong. You can argue against the criticism- as long as you don’t overdo it- under other false names.
Some discussions will go way off topic. That’s all right, and even normal. Make some look like they’re doing just that. They shouldn’t even all be about the story.
I know how it feels to have no comments. It must take ages to render this, and it probably feels like nobody cares enough about it to bother, but I can promise you that there are people reading who like your work a lot, myself included. Your characters are pixar-quality work, and the sheer amount of time spent in positioning them, never mind creating each one, will always go under appreciated. But look at your kickstarter project. You’ve raised 153% of your goal!
Now, reread this comment, and try to analyze it. By my use of the word I at the beginning of my rant, I show that I typically defer to you and want to let you know that I respect you.
And finally, just the fact that I’m analyzing your self-comments makes me statistically female. My use of parentheses and some of my vocabulary, such as my tendency to join words with a hyphen, and referring to my comment as a rant, make my writing more bouncy. These irregularities betray my age, as even though I try to appear older and wiser, the way in which I normally write inevitably shows itself. If I wasn’t using this as an example, I would go back and correct these mistakes.
From this comment, you can conclude that I am a female who has at least entered middle school but has not yet reached college, I have a decent education, and probably care a good deal about your comic to write this much.
And hopefully you won’t delete this comment. It’s wackos like me who give the comment board life, and show that there are real humans posting and, of course, reading your comic.
I don’t know if Scott reads these archive comments, but some of us Dreamers still do.
You make a fairly well-reasoned premise, based on a decent high school level understanding of psychology. Unfortunately, your argument also reveals a distinct lack of primary research. In other words, there’s no way you could come to the conclusions you have if you had read and understood all – or even most – of the comments up to this point. Had you done so, it would be clear to you that Scott is one of the kindest, humblest webcomic creators on the internet, who is famous (at least among his readership, and I’m sure to some extent elsewhere as well) for his tremendous work ethic and his unfailing loyalty to and honesty with his fans. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, the Dreamers in return are among the most loyal webcomic fans on the net, and are generally quick to come to Scott’s defense.
It probably never even occurred to Scott to post comments here under any name but his own, at least until you accused him of doing so.
I’m curious as to who, specifically, you think is Scott in disguise? I’m not sure what evidence to the contrary you might accept (if any), but I’m sure we can come up with something.
And what you did with the 1337 discussion was very good!
