Last page goes up Thursday! And for those curious, Yuko's been posting some high res shots of selected panels on her Tumblr. 

Mass Effect 3 news came out at E3! Pretty exciting. Release date is March of 2012, oof. We're all aflutter in anticipation over here. 

Keeping it short again, lots of work. See you Thursday!

Neat. Where can I get a hand like that?

Jedifreak: Where the hell

Jedifreak: Where the hell can I get a hand like that?
Anti-Legion Anon: Gotta kill a few people.
Jedifreak: 'Kay, I can do it.
Anti-Legion Anon: Then you got to get sent to a slam, where they tell you you'll never see daylight again. You dig up a doctor, and you pay him 20 menthol Kools to do a surgical shine job on your metacarpals and phalanges.

I get the "Pitch Black" reference, but what's with the Anti-Legion Anon?

Since I have no idea who the "they" in the "Their" are.

I can't form an opinion on whether I'm ok with it. Would you please state exactly who's work you detest?

Anonymous groups that use that silly v for vendetta imagery and slogan.

And the sense in replying about it during my post was what? I never even mentioned them, nor anything having to do with them.

Also, what concern is it of yours what they do?

I bet that cat was thinking that he was never going to have to worry about being picked up like that now that he was a ghost!

Loving the dicks out of this

Sooooo cooool! What an interesting concept!

Comment by Caz (not verified) Tue, 06/07/2011 - 19:29

Poor kitty! I wasn't expecting a fall like that to turn the little guy into a ghostie.
So if a ghost kitty catches ghost mice...what do the ghost mice become? Ghostghost mice? @_@

Questions in need of answers! the next series? I wait in anticipation.

So her skeleton hand

Comment by Suri (not verified) Tue, 06/07/2011 - 20:49

So her skeleton hand is useful. That's so awesome. I've loving the color. Keep it going!!!


Comment by Lobo (not verified) Tue, 06/07/2011 - 20:54

I have been reading the archive for the last week between calls while I'm at work, and I'm in love with this website! :)

The cat's ghosty tail is my favorite thing ever, besides John. There needs to be more John. :D

I actually gasped when I saw this page.

Comment by Daniel Jason Barry (not verified) Tue, 06/07/2011 - 21:26

Y'know, like when you inhale in awe.

This may possibly be my favorite JW panel ever. I second what LisaG said above -- the colors, the layout, the content, the expressions -- all of it, stunning.

You guys slayed it with this one.

What about the wee baby birdies in the eggies?? Their momma bird is dead :< How will they survive/hatch?

But uh, where did the body

Comment by eli (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 01:10

But uh, where did the body of the cat disappear to...?

Tell.... Tell me the kitty

Comment by Cira (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 02:55

Tell.... Tell me the kitty cat didn't die.

It did. I'm sad about it,

Comment by Ducky (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 03:01

It did. I'm sad about it, too. ): (It's peculiar how I had that reaction to the cat dying but for the other animals that wasn't so.)


Comment by TheMaverickk (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 03:33

I had to throw this out there as a video game lover... but I'm personally just enthralled with this new Skyward Sword.

As much as anticipating the last game, I couldn't help but feel "meh" about it... it didn't have anything that really drew me in and gave me a real reason to care about the game.

This Zelda though has style, emotion, and bird riding!

By the way though.... "me-WOW!" awesome comic panel!

You killed a kitty. A little girl somewhere is Crying :(
(thank Gawd you didn't draw it's body.)


Comment by SuileanDubh (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 07:12

Wait, it actually doesn't hurt cats to be picked up by their scruff. Momma cats pick up their kittens by their scruff all the time. Or do you mean because the cat will freak out and scratch you? Or in this case, because it's an alley cat and likely has lots of lice and diseases?

Actually, it does hurt cats

Comment by TheEFAF (not verified) Thu, 06/09/2011 - 09:51

Actually, it does hurt cats to be picked up by their scruff....when they're adults.

As kittens, their body weight isn't so much, so they can be picked up that way without a lot of discomfort. But an adult cat weighs a lot more and that pulls their skin there painfully. You try picking up an adult cat there and see what happens...they certainly are never happy about it. I wouldn't be either if I was picked up by the neck without any support for the rest of my body. I hate it when people do that and pretend the yowling cat is not in some pain (though certainly not excruciating...). Is it really so hard to put a hand under their back feet for weight support?

+1 on kitty ghost tail

Great illustration and interesting short story!

Eeeee :D

I just got my CMYCat shirt <3
Ghostcat should follow? :3

About the scruff: it

Comment by Poncho (not verified) Wed, 06/08/2011 - 15:56

About the scruff: it actually hurts adult cats since they are much more heavier than when they were kittens, so while I doubt the cat will get its skin ripped off, holding them like that will hurt them simply because they're heavier and aren't meant to be held like that anymore.

As kittens they are very light and being held that way even if it still hurts a tiny bit, they stay quiet since its the only way their momma can carry them.

However, this is a ghost cat, it might be more scared than hurt.

This is cuuute.

Girl: This skeleton hand will come to use after all :)

This will open the door to all kinds of fun! :)

Oh the kitty...

Comment by Tony (not verified) Thu, 06/09/2011 - 00:48

Death not knowing what to do with the dead animals... now the kitty dying. Having the skeleton hand thus far... this will be interesting one way or the other, though of course I hold hope for the kitty.

So...Was this the kitties'

Comment by icouldbeahero (not verified) Thu, 06/09/2011 - 11:08

So...Was this the kitties' ninth life, or could we potentially have an alive kitty with eight kitty ghosts wandering about too?!

Just take my money Bioware, but please quit delaying ME3... Q_Q
Love how this Girl series is going keep it up you two

Awww the ghost cat looks so

Comment by the other ghost girl (not verified) Thu, 06/09/2011 - 17:15

Awww the ghost cat looks so cute being yanked........ I guess this means that the ghost cat'll take care of the ghost mice. Or you'll just have a bunch of undead animals in there. Loved the art. Thank you for doing this amazing comic.

That ghost cat will take care of your ghost mice!

I love Johnny Wander, and this full-color piece is even more beautiful. Keep up the good work, and publish it so I can put it on my bookshelf!

Off topic... well, sort of

I just started playing ME 2 on Thursday. My question is, should I stop now, and pick up a copy of Mass Effect (the first)?

(I also love to comic and have been reading for a long time. Seriously though... video game question.)

Yes. Stop now, play the

Comment by Jedifreak (not verified) Tue, 06/14/2011 - 11:54

Yes. Stop now, play the original, learn to hate the MAKO, and transfer your character over so that you can get more plot.


Comment by Anon, The Mouse (not verified) Thu, 06/16/2011 - 06:50

Thanks Jedifreak. I picked up Mass Effect and started it a couple of day ago. (love it.) I also managed to drive the MAKO off of the skyway on Ferros, killing myself and my crew. Not exactly a heroic end. :D
