Day one of Comic Con!
I have Sketch Cards! I have Books! I have Toys! I have Plushes! I have POSTERS!
Come by and say hi.
I’m doing sketches!
Hahaha! Alex is so clueless about what’s going on!
Come ON Alex! Spill the beans about the message from Dreamland already! 8\
Alex’s mind is definitely in another time zone. 😀
My first time commenting, though I found the comic a couple months ago. I have to say, this is an impressive comic, and your update schedule is truly inspiring.
Three of the authors of my favorite web comics are at Comic Con…. I wish I could be.
It’s that dawning moment of comprehension…
Nicole and me! Nicole and me!! *flees*
(Lovely reaction time, Alex.)
Hahaha. I was going to point out the same thing that Lea did. Grammar freak here…
I love it when somebody just does what Alex did in that last panel. “Wait…what?” I do that all the time XD
Great reaction time there Alex. *rolls eyes*
they’re right, it’s ‘dinner with nicole and me’ – grammar mistakes are more than distracting; they make library groups and scholastic less excited about something really quality otherwise.
who’s to blame alex for his reaction time? he’s tired and still has too much sugar in his system. and he’s probably very busy with the growing up thingy. 😉
(and now that he has nastajia, why would he still need nicole? :D)
I have now been reading this for quite a while and i have to say i happy with the comic. one of the better ones i have had the pleasure reading. Unfortunatly here in australia we are not able to get the book at all… Does any one know where i can get it from…
This is a comic, and most of the text is in direct speech. Grammar errors are often a part of the characterization.
In Daniel’s case, however, the error seems inappropriate.
I agree w/ Sebastian =) it’s weird for characters to always speak w/ exact proper grammar all the time… but I also agree that Daniel would be the one person I expect to speak properly all the time XD
Please tell me Alex didn’t flush the medicine bag down the toilet or something T_T Scott said he won’t lose it… right? And flushing it down the toilet would == losing it… right? So he can’t….. @_@
unless the next pages include a bag rescue mission down the toilet. 😉
They need Nicole, because she has a very good mind. If they can just get her over that bit about dreamland being impossible they and get her to apply her mind to the problems in a way more constructive than trying to prove it doesn’t exist she will be a very valuable ally.
Oh, and way to go Daniel! ^_^
Yes. I’ll fix the grammar before we go to print. So don’t worry. And thank you very much.
I have not one…but two editors. So between them…and you…we’ll catch all those spelling and grammar errors before the books go to print.
And Sidion. The books are available worldwide. Just go to your local bookstore and ask for it. If they don’t have it on the shelves…they can order all 3 books. I promise.
Thanks all. And WOOT! I’m on my way to Comic Con today.
You have two editors who missed that?
Psssh, put me on the payroll and gimme sneak peeks.
Well, people can slip up from time to time with their grammer(I never did that well in English in high school).
You and Chris(the artist for Misfile) are both going to Comic Con… BLAST IT! One of the few chances I get to meet the authors of my favorite webcomics and I don’t have the money for it. Hopefully, by the end of either this month or next, I can try and fix that. And Scott, have a great time at Comic Con!
Nicole and Dan, nice dinner? Sounds as wrong as “Nicole and me” sounds. LOL, I would have made the same grammatical error. Why does “Nicole and I” sound right, anyway? I know it’s wrong, but it sounds right somehow…
Anyway, Have a Great Time at ComiCon!!!
Good luck and have FUN at Comic Con !!!
Those books are HUMUNGOUS! hehe
i would come and say hi to bad its far away and im up in CT
Here’s a simple rule-of-thumb for avoiding that particular mistake in the future. Try eliminating the other person from the sentence and see what “sounds” right to you:
“You missed a good dinner with me last night.” or “You missed a good dinner with I last night.”
Obviously it’s the former that sounds correct, and the latter that sounds odd. Then just add the other person back in:
“You missed a good dinner with Nicole and me last night.”
The best way to avoid grammatical mistakes is to avoid them in the first place 😉 I find that little exercises like this one help me (but I still make plenty of mistakes!).
Alex has always had something of a bad reaction time. Like when Joey said he’d be in the fairy village with the mushroom houses. It took five panels for a very humorous reaction from Alex and Dan.
Whatever, the grammar is fixed now. Know that Dan would have never make a grammar mistake, he’s the smart one of the twins. And is why his sloppy sibling grates so on him.
Oh, and ENJOY THE CON, SCOTT!
0_0… Dinner??? Can’t wait to hear about that Dan. With Alex’s reaction time I bet it will be two more strips before he remembers the bag :). Anyway, Have a great time at the Comic Con Scott!!! (I wonder what Dan is reading?)
Actually, I believe that the correct wording would be, “dinner with Nicole and myself”
If it were Alex saying it, I’d say maybe he doesn’t know any better. Lot’s of people get it wrong. Even if it’s the author’s fault, sometimes bad grammar can add to the character. But this is Dan we’re talking about. He seems less likely to make that mistake.
Maybe Alex’s full reaction goes like this?
“Wait… What? Nicole and I? That is grammatically incorrect”
Who’s the smart one now? :p
Ha – good old Dan. So nonchalant.
thank you for the information i will go ask and get them just to help you with keeping this going
Ha! THAT makes him look up! XD
Have a great time at the con I’m just a *little* bit frustrated that I’m swedish so it would be too costly timewise AND moneywise to be there *sigh* and also…
This is among my top 3 webcomics along with Digger and Misfile (can’t however decide in what order ;P)
I too would have let the grammar go–except that it’s not like Dan to make that error.
He and Nicole are the studious nerds. They have to be right. It’s their thing.
See hypercorrection. As children when we say “me and Billy went…” we’re told “Billy and I!” without any clue about when that’s more correct.
“Nicole and myself” sounds to me like attempted pomposity.
