Oh I simply love how the phone’s glow is the same colour as the lights in Isabel’s room, and vice-versa, it creates an awesome connection, and the lighting just looks lovely too <3
I just noticed that, wow, that’s cool :3
And said colours are almost complete opposites, creating maximum contrast between warmth and danger.
man your coloring is getting good!
Why does she have a poster of canine eye inflation disease on her wall?
AND NOW MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY HAS ARRIVED
Zack, I love you.
Cue Mr. Starchman’s “it’s that time again~” song
Hahahaha alt text never ceases to make me laugh.
Except when it’s not there *cough*chapteronepage40somethingforward*cough*
Yeah, I know. Gotta go back and add some in.
I love his dialogue.
I’m positive you’ve been told this already but you’re a master at expressions. Isabel’s expressions are top notch here; not only do they obviously portray her feelings but they also fit into your realm of kickass over-the-top-but-not-so-crazy-it-takes-away-from-their-true-feelings kind of expressionism, if that makes any sense. Great work as usual man. Always looking forward to your updates.
Thanks. I always look forward to you guys’ comments, too.
I can’t tell if it would be funnier for the thing to actually be no threat at all or if it goes the whole “oh this thing is totally harmleOH SHIT” route.
Good stuff! I’m now forced to wait for another page! Waaaaa! Doc Brown ware are you when I need you!
D’aaaaaw! What a cute little newbie he is!
FYI, this comic is awesome, please never stop.
Ahaha, I love that poster in Isabel’s room. Canine eye inflation disease. XD no puppy dog eyes allowed in this universe, huh? Anyway, awesome as usual! Max freaking out is the best thing.
Lol. I think it’s funny how the monsters doing the reflection thing again as Max is talking. XD
Sweet, update! 8D
This comic is awesome. You’re awesome. And that’s really all there is to say on the matter.
how much to bring derek back for one panel?
Given the scenario in this chapter, he probably won’t appear until ch3 at least.
Isabel’s poster is win.
not enough attention has been payed to Isabel’s perfect poster by a lot.
sdifngkns i just
LOVE this comic??? i read it like a week ago and it skyrocketed to my favorite comics list and now sits proudly with gunnerkrig court and cucumber quest and homestuck oops
I just really love this comic man you’re doing an awesome job :DDD
OH MY GOODNESS, Isabel’s messed up bed hair is one of the most brilliantly done, brilliantly conceived things I’ve ever seen. Zach, you’re an utter genius. I could try not to gush, but I’d fail ENTIRELY. The story is amazing, the art is AMAZING, and so CLEVER! And hilarious! And so detailed – I didn’t even notice how perfectly the phone glows were until I read that top comment. Thank you for doing this comic. I love it more than I can say. Ha, despite trying.
I like her pajamas…
Hurray, dialogue! I love the third panel. I had to read it twice, and then I LAUGHED. Twice, and once more for luck. Also psychological warfare BWAHAHA.
Beyond creating mirror images of itself and devouring them, it hasn’t shown sign of intentional aggression towards others.
That is awesome bed hair, she should keep it… except I imagine drawing it like that every time she appears would give you hand cramps.
Nah, you just go nuts with lines.
I love it! “I am in clear and future danger”. XD
Actually there’s not much I could say that hasn’t been said, but the coloring is beautiful, the writing is fun and the expressions are just about perfect.
And sometimes there’s two or three things happening in one panel, like the monster in the background.
Can I just say that I love the way you draw hair? Because I love the way you draw hair.
I just want you to know that even though this comic is kinda early on, if you made a book I would buy that shit in a second.
HOW DID YOU GET THEM COLORS TO BE SO VIVID
WHAT MAGICKS DID YOU WEAVE
Uhhh I mess around with the airbrush tool a lot. I’ve also found that my computer’s display is a bit darker and less saturated than most other computers, so things turn out a bit brighter than I intend them to.
Oh, that makes sense. It works really, really well. Also, what drawing program do you use?
I use gimp as well, but it refuses to cooperate with my new waccom.
It makes me sad.
Isabel’s hair. It looks brown. It is extremely not brown. It is black. WHY DOES IT LOOK BROWN. AGH.
Brilliant writing and art and everything though.
Yes, and her eyeballs aren’t orange, either. Or maybe, oh I don’t know, it’s just the lighting making them look off-colour? You know, like coloured lights tend to do?
Well yes, I considered that, but her hair is BLACK to begin with. My brain can not fathom that light making black hair look that brown. She looks like a brown-haired person in orangey lighting.
Well, my hair is black, but it looks reddish brown/brown against some lights
like shaded lamp lights
I just discovered this today, read through the whole thing. Awesome. Keep up the good work.
Thanks, I will.
Great update I’m always happy to see a new page.
Gah the light on this page is awesome. Well done as always, sir!
i like how he words things.
Discovered. Love it! Plot, characters, over-the-top-ish-ness in perfect non-over-the-top amounts, o yeah the art too. Please don’t break my heart and fade away.
I’m sticking with Paranatural and with comics, believe me.
THIS GUY RIGHT ‘ERE
WHO YA GONNA CALL?!
I LOVE this comic. It RULES!!
lol your comic always makes me laugh!! I’ve been shoving this comic down other people’s throats going “READ THIS ITS HILARIOUS RIGHT? RIGHT?!”
I just realised you’ve been doing this for about 8 months, and only around 32-ish hours have actually passed in the comic. Not quite as extreme as Homestuck’s 24-hours-over-one-and-a-half-years, but that’s still one heck of a day :P.
Haha, yeah. I’d classify the first three chapters as an “arc,” as they take place in immediate sequence and serve as Max’s initiation into the supernatural.
There is nothing bad to be said about this comic it is awesome. I just read all of it today on what days do you post new pages?
I don’t have an update schedule but there’s a new page up at least once a week. You can subscribe to the RSS feed if you want to catch them as they come. Thanks for reading!
Just read through all of Paranatural in one day, great read. Any plans to collect it in some way? Also, how much attention are you getting media-wise for this brilliant webcomic? However much, you deserve it ten-fold.
Yeah, I want to make a book sometime down the line. Things are starting to take off in terms of people being aware of Paranatural, I think, thanks to readers spreading it around on sites they uses. Thanks for reading!
Wow, the lighting effects are great. Awesome comic as usual.
/co/ still loves you.
Got to love the expressions in all of these comics.
I AM CONSTANTLY BEING AGGRESSED BY PEOPLE.
Naw but seriously, this is great stuff. Love this comic, can’t wait for the next page, ect ect.
I guess the only question at this point is, “How many reflections will the ghostwhalefrog be able to eat before help arrives?”
i always think of myself in second person(i think that’s the one) so i didint catch it until my second read through….she said “we’ll be there”. not I…..she’s bringing someone.
Seems that way.
First person is “I”, “me”. Third person is “he”, “she”. Second person is “you”. I once wrote a book which was written in the second person. It was very strange.
I think what you mean is the royal we. Still isn’t exactly the right term for it. The royal we is when a ruler refers to himself or herself as “we” because they represent the entire country. There’s also the editorial we, and the authorial we, but there doesn’t seem to be a good context-neutral term.
I mean *read* a book. Mmm, all this is confusing me too.
“Repeatedly eating itself in front of me”
Best description ever.
Aw, poor Max. He’s gonna have a meltdown…
Someone just told me about this and even though I didn’t want to get into another webcomic, I really couldn’t help it because after reading a couple of pages I was hooked. This is easily the best webcomic I’ve ever read. It’s always fun to discover something that’s relatively new and doesn’t have a huge backlog or fanbase yet.
I’m glad you like it.
Oh, and don’t know if this has been mentioned or not, but the “Previous entries” and “Newer entries” in the archives are switched around, “Newer” goes to older comics, “Previous” goes to newer.
I can’t reproduce this.
Watch it actually be harmless.
META PLOT TWISTCEPTION.
Apparently, It takes Isabel to look like herself after a rude phonecall in teh middle of the night
BTW, love the comic. keep up the great work. Subscribed on CF, and glad to see it in its new home
Thanks! Good to see some carry-over readers from ComicFury.
Her bed hair is awesome.
After seeing Isabel in this page I realized that Paranatural should have a character with the most awesome-est eternal bed hair ever. Just some food for thought :)
I want that dog poster.
Ha!!! Frogs don’t have noses! :D (Boy-scout merit badge, Reptiles and Amphibians)
