#277 – beep

Today’s strip was so much fun to draw. I love making Eve squash and jump all over the place. I’m a little sad this race is over!

Not much to post about today, apart from that I am getting pumped for the Floating World Release Party, Stumptown Comics Fest, and imminent book release!

    Amazing, love the energy and build up.

  2. Ben says:

    This may be one of the most epic comics done. I felt the energy and cheered as well. My roommate looked at me awkwardly and the put his headphones back on.

  3. Liz says:

    That was AWESOME! Next time Supermarket Sweep is on tv, I'm actually going to watch it

  4. Aarbear says:

    So was the bottle man/thing inflated?

    I'll 2nd Ben's opinion on this being epic–I love it when you can make a (near) textless comic and still get your point across beautifully.

  5. Randall Drew says:

    Nice job putting in a little extra oomph on this page and giving us a fresh, expanded comic to read! Yay Eve…poor bottle!

  6. Trypno01 says:

    That was an excellent buildup followed by a great comedic ending. She definitely deserved that victory.

    When's round two?

  7. Nice action sequence! I love it!

  8. Angela says:

    AWESOME. This whole race series has been so exciting!

  9. Ryan H. says:

    That was awesome. The scene flows perfectly. Great job.

  10. David Waltergart says:

    So – Eve's brother will have to face the weaselly one, then?

    I expect a bit of exposition from their contest.

    Loved these last few days of the grocatournament…

    Damn that was awesome. I think Mer's said she dabbles in animation – the comic is almost like a storyboard.

  12. josh says:

    Just read through the archives and I'm at that sad point where its 4am and you know you will be hanging on for updates for the rest of the webcomics run…

    To think how gleefully I powered through the saga so far. I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN MY TIME.

    Damn you for being so awesome.

    Panel 4. THIS ISNT OVER NING!!!!

  14. Matt says:

    Truly awesome delivery/energy/timing.

    Also, I just realized for the first time- Eve Ning. Evening. Intentional or not, I can't unsee it. D:

  15. Tanya says:

    She looks so small in panel 1 compared to the fat ogre-esque guy.

  16. Colleen Sheehy says:

    Betterforsome called it – I want to see this sucker animated! Can you make that happen, Mer?

  17. Rob says:

    I can hear the cheer explosion in my head from the last panel. Like when someone scores a goal at a soccer game. Awesome!

  18. aj2x says:

    These last two pages have been EPIC! The sort of stuff that illustrates how action cartooning is done. I hadn't quite realized, though, how rough you are on Eve. Now when I see her hurtling through the air I will hear your evil maniacal chuckling in the background.

  19. Snowboy says:

    It feels like the song from the run-home scene in Ferris Bueler should be playing for this.

  20. Foxy_Ninja says:

    Ninja skillz, Eve!

  21. Jamie says:

    lol…awesome. =^.^=

  22. fool says:

    gotta love that panel 1-2 combo! haha
