You have managed to ramp up the anticipation for each and every page thus far. This is no exception.

Man... Wednesday can't come soon enough.

I know, right, Prof!?

Next page is going to be epic.
Post it now, Lirvilas!

;-)

By the way, that's not what I thought Eric's plan was going to be. Heh. Nice.

RD-

OK now that the cat's essentially out of the bag, what did you think the plan was?

And you should know, the next page DOES NOT EXIST and I have only a few paltry hours between now and post date to get it moving...

Well, I thought Eric was going to take a more direct approach. Maybe with something that Amanda procured for him that they were hiding in the boat.

Is the next page done now?!
And here I thought you were Mr.Ihaveahugebuffer.
Good to know that you operate like MOST of the rest of us on here.

Prof-

Your previous comment regarding Eric as a mirror was extremely useful.

I am glad that this scene is working for you... "No Compromises".

Over the course of W & L, I want to see every eye-gouging, sand-throwing, referee-blinding, double-teaming, no-good, down-low, ball-deflating, bat-corking, double-crossing dirty trick using any and all tools in any arsenal you can get your hands on (meaning largely yours and mine) to make W & L come to life.

No Compromises indeed! Yes, this is working VERY well!

EDIT: looking back over the page, I just noticed the "Leholy Diver"... well played, good sir! (Ronnie rests in honored glory!)

That's a fact. Thanks for pointing that out... I take no shame in rushing these out to you, my valued audience, but yes, from time to time quality control does suffer.

While we're waiting for the "BOOM", it would be interesting to know -where- this event is supposedly taking place.

Eric keeps using "Straits Traffic Control", but WHAT Straits?

Oh, THOSE straits. BIG boom then. I'm guessing Lloyds of London might be paying out some rather large insurance payments to the various shipping companies soon...

By the way, I think they should spank Eric.

Equal opportunity and all.

1) The last time I had a "huge buffer" was back in September of 2014 when I was running Volume 2: Let It Return. I had more than two weeks built up by the end of that series. But then again, I could make one of those pages in the space of a couple hours--and they sure friggin' look like it too.

I don't disrespect works with crummy art--I only hold them in contempt when the years go by and there's no goddamn sign at all of an increase in technical skill.

2) While Eric is certainly due for some serious humiliation in the form of corporal punishment, I can only think of one scene in this volume where that may play out, and I haven't determined how or if that scene is falling into the queue for W&L.

However, if you just want to see him in severe physical distress...

Well, Singapore is geographically proximate to the action in this scene...

Lir, I think your work is starting to have some serious comment exchanges and traffic though.
Really, I am away for a bit and you are all starting family reunions in comments. Almost.
Props for capturing people like this :)

You mind trying on this gimp mask? No big reason...

Eh, not really one of them but thanks :)

Oooh, so you are into THAT!
Unfortunately, I would look like bad Jason Voorhees cosplay in that.
