Sorry…no dialog today.
Just a fun page of Dan and Nicole watching Alex trying to sleep.
Hope you enjoy.
Ya, falling asleep is going to be easy….
How’s he supposed to fall asleep with Nicole and Dan staring at him? Give the boy some space guys – sheesh!
That’s pretty good. Here’s my reaction:
1st frame: looking at the necklace
3rd frame: looking at the necklace
5th frame: LOL!
I really love the Thundercats tee. Wow I want one of those now.
They sell them in Camden market, not that I imagine that is much help to you.
Not if it involves going to Camden, it isn’t.
Are you still there?
And it was SUCH a good idea, too!
haha you should put ‘find 5 differences’ between these panes. hahah
“I always feel like somebody’s watching me.”
“No that’s just common paranoia,everyone in the universe has that…”
There’s a phrase about a pot and what it won’t do while under observation… I’m sure it’ll come to me…
Is it just me, or does the necklace look like it’s hovering just above Alex’s shirt? If it was lying right up against the shirt, there shouldn’t be any space between the necklace and its shadow. Also, it seems like the back of the chain should fall right when it crosses the shoulder line, instead of floating up behind Alex’s neck.
BTW, my preferred shortened moniker is “Lazer”, not “Wulf”.
P.S. In spite of all my nitpicks, I still enjoy the comic very much, so Thank You, Scott, for creating such a wonderful story.
I kinda noticed that too “Wulf” 😛
Also, I love how detailed you are Scoot. The “Hello, My Name Is” Visitor badge that Daniel has is a nice touch. Also, wouldn’t it be easier to record him under video surveillance? LOL.
Well worth the punchline!
Left side of the panel, the necklace’s chain is casting a shadow. That’s why it looks like it’s floating… Because it would have to be.
my thoughts exactly. point a camera at him and leave him alone for a while.
on the other hand, it wouldn’t be half the fun for dan and nicole. LOL
Hey, it’s friday! Now we have to wait until monday for the miracle. That’s pretty long! *gg*
It’s Thursday today 😉 But yeah, I smell a week-end cliffhanger coming on 😛
Dagnabbit, and I was gonna make the Rockwell joke… “I wonder who’s watching me now?” “Who?” “The IRS?” Great story, though, and Lazer, great choice on the avatar pic!(one of my fav animes right now)
Alex is just like: ‘Waba? ‘What are you staring at. is there something hanging out my nose?’
Good job. No, damn fine job, actually. A lot is said without a word. Once again you prove you are the master storyteller. I sit at the master’s feet and await the next lesson.
“Hey! no peeking!” lol.. I’d have such a hard time getting to sleep with people staring at me like that.
Good Morning all.
So glad you liked the page.
And thanks for the compliments.
Oh…and Lazer. The chain isn’t completely flat to his shirt in all places. It rises slightly on that one side. Hence the shadow.
But it’s definitely not floating. Just not completely flat.
I don’t know who handles your advertisements, but the smiley central website advertised on your site will infect you with nasty viruses even if you don’t download anything.
A watched alex never sleeps?
Vedy Intedesting, Yah, Vedy intedesting indeed. The panels don’t seem to change much between the top pair, middle pair and bottom pair (Alex is awake in the bottom), but the background, bedspread and facial shadows are darker in the top and lightest in the bottom. does this indicate passage of time?
I agree with janey, use a camera. Rhis is a techie society that likes to use its gadgets. Wouldn’t researchers have an array of recording devices around him like the paparazzi? Closed circuit TV’s, digital recorders, film, infrared, etc.
I knew it!! “I can’t sleep while you’re watching…”
Another great update – this might answer some questions we all have!
Speaking of which, where is the pouch? Wasn’t that supposed to be around his neck too?
I love the pic where he opened one eye to see if they were still watching him.
LOL!!! I like the eye opening. In real life I would have a hard time trying to sleep with all the watchful stares. LOL
just another reason why this story is so darn good!
I was hoping Alex’d scare them in that 5th panel.
For some reason, I love this page.
Also, it’s been bugging me forever — as a girl, I have to point out that NICOLE’S LIPSTICK COLOR IS ALL WRONG! GAH! BLEAH! No one looks good in lavender or periwinkle or whatever that is! She could do a caramel, pale peachy pink, or maybe a glossy reddish brown.
… maybe they should just set up a camera?
hey Arvamas, I don’t think that is supposed to be a real visitor’s sticker, if you look closely in previous frames it goes on to say (hello! my name is…)…”Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Don’t know if that is what you meant about video recording or not… And yeah, Love the Thundercats. Would be really cool to see a “Pirates of Dark Water” illusion, but no one knows what that is.
oh and Gingerbread, I don’t think the pale purple looks bad per se, just out of place. It is just more of a fancy-night-out color, not a day-in-the-lab color. and lighter colors lips like that (And also more vivid lip colors) look good on African Americans more so than Caucasians.
The last few pages showed Alex exhibiting a small hint of intelligence and reasoning. Today, the last panel proved he lost it all.
i think Alex should pretend to be asleep for a while, and just when either Dan or Nicole says “is he asleep” he should jump up and say “BOO!!!!”:D
tick tock tick tock… ALEX FALL ASLEEP ALREADY!! lol
Some one can’t fall a sleep being watched… I see a few different options here: Surveillance, drugs or just knocking him out.
Why do they need glasses if they always look over them?
A camera might not work. I’m thinking of Niven’s hyperdrive where the mass detector was psionic and had to be watched by a living person; a mechanical object like a camera would not “see” anything. But they don’t need both watching. I’d go for a camera and one pair of eyes.
i love eet!!@john people often look like they are looking over there glasses whrn they really are looking through them.
He is supposed to keep the pouch in his hand.
Yes is would have been super funny if he had scared them!!
Yeah, maybe they need to set up a camera…either that or…
ALEX HAS INSOMNIA!!!
hahaha. i’m in a horrible mood and this still made me laugh.
hey, thats cheating, you just copy-pasted the same tree images.
I’m with Jason (way up at the beginning….) I totally want a Thundercats tee as well! Thanks alot! *scurries off to find one…*
I’d find it hard to sleep if I knew someone was watching me. XDD
do you mind not sharing while i’m trying to go to sleep?
