Girl with the Skeleton Hand, part 2

Oh man, sorry I'm a little late with the blog post! It's been a busy day and I finally have a minute. 

So here's page 2, which Miss Yuko worked very hard on ... she was at it all day yesterday. We finally meet Cecilia's mystery date! He's a little odd, but he seems like a gentleman (actually, I can't wait till page 4 so I can tell you guys about the two terrible alternate endings I came up with for this story.) Hope you're enjoying it! And hope you're enjoying the fictional stuff ... Yuko and I are already throwing around some ideas for future shorts. 

In other news, the Maw figurine is up for preorder! It's a cool $30, which is well under what I imagined it would be -- fair warning, when it hits 20 preorders (it's very close) the price jumps to $35. 

And as mentioned before, the Zoolology tees are back in stock as well! We've already run out of some sizes - let us know if yours is gone and we'll see what we can do. :)

That's all! See you guys Thursday! 


Oh my goodness, Cecelia's

Oh my goodness, Cecelia's date is so adorable! I'm loving the story so far!

First dates are nerve-wracking! No matter who you are!

I don't know...

her date looks like the kind of guy who talks to much during a date.

Oh no!

Cecilia's date looks a bit like Vault Boy in that last panel.

Hah! Didn't see it before,

Hah! Didn't see it before, but now I can't unsee it. 

Oh man

I love Cecilia's expression in panel 1 soooo much. I also love her reaction to having her hand skeletized. Surprised, perhaps a little bit concerned, but not quite alarmed. She's quite the character!

Oh yeah and I really like panel 7 too. Really nailed those hand positions.

So, I'm a little surprised I

So, I'm a little surprised I didn't already read this comment, but Yuko did an incredible job on the costume design! The clothes in this are incredibly well done. Also, maybe it's a bit weird, but as a fellow artist, the tablecloth in the restaurant scene is perfectly done. It is one of the most realistic examples of drawing cloth I have ever seen. Beyond that, I love it. The coloring, the facial expressions, the cuteness, all of it. Way to go guys.

Since the first comic, I've had Stone Temple Pilots in my head. And then with this new one, you put yet another song in my head.

That's it - I'm renaming the link to your site to "Ananth Likes to Put Songs in My Miiiiinnnd!"

I love the art, and everything's beautiful and creative and all that... but... "Oh my?" Really? Jesus CHRIST. She's pretty intense.

If it were me I'd be like, "WAAAHHH HOLY SHIIIIIIT" and then proceed to throw up. But, y'know. To each his/her own. ):

I suppose when there's a

I suppose when there's a nest of Maws in the tree outside your building, it's hard to shake you up.

Either that, or Celie's got some major cajones.

Wonderful Style

I love Yuko's art style, it's absolutely adorable.

Hah! That could be the whole

Hah! That could be the whole story right there. Seriously, I dare you to go back to the usual non-fiction next comic.

An I the only one who is reminded of some of the stories in the Flight books?

I totally agree

Comment by mordacaiMT (not verified) Thu, 09/17/2009 - 18:30

I'm with you there. Especially some of Rad Sechrist's work. Hey, maybe Ananth and Yuko should try to submit a short story for Flight.

I can't believe...

My curiousity got the better of me, and after this, I just had to know, 'Does Anath have a face under his hat, or is he just a chin with a hat?'. He DOES have a face! I looked him up on Facebook, and he does indeed have a face! and a book! :D

I love all the little details . . . those pesky little cow demons hiding up there in that tree. :D

HA! I like the Maws up in the tree in panel 5. Very stealth.

I'm liking the break from

I'm liking the break from the norm for mini-stories, hope to see more later on! This one is adorable so far.

Also, I nabbed a Maw preorder :D

...OH, I GET IT! I thought she had the skeleton and then had a fake hand glove on top the first time.
