No, but feel free to fix the glass Ed broke throwing that can SAVING MY LIFE.
HEAR THAT? I told you cans throw themselves! I’m not crazy! People believe me!
Yeah, sure, Incon. The kid in the dog suit who sees ghosts and waves a paintbrush around is sure to reassure everybody of your sanity.
Oh god your avatar makes that hilarious
have doctopi ever been the cause of steroid abuse scandals in sports?
obviously not people knowing it was because of supernatural pain-eating octopi, but like, an athlete’s sudden high tolerance of pain raising suspicion?
…wow this is the most pointless question ever but it sounded interesting in my head, better question: can doctopi feed off their own pain?
They probably don’t feel pain. Or maybe that’s what the sucking of other’s pain is for. To soothe theirs.
Not sure about the first question, though I’ll say that there may or may not be a future character who uses Doctopi to their full potential. In response to the second, Doctopi don’t feel pain so they can’t feed off themselves or each other.
Maybe he didn’t throw the can. Wouldn’t that mean that something invisible threw it? That would mean the thing was invisible to spectrals. That would make it, like, twice invisible.
Maybe it was PJ
Oh god, that panel when paper pony shows off the demon face, that was some serious Parasyte s— right there. Good job giving me the creeps!
It’s a paper snapdragon transformed into a more draconic snapdragon form. It’s awesome! XD
My guess is that the time-stopping snake is the spirit in Max’s tool.
Eh, maybe if he had stuck around he would have heard every possible spirit that could kick his ass. Bet it’s a long list right now. He should be happy that they forced him to exchange numbers.
Keep writing these good human characterizations.
Question for Zack: are Ed and Izzy sort of a club within the PAC? The didn’t try and get in on explaining the Paranatural world with Spender and Ed and they suddenly remembered they had to see Grandma when Max left. Of course then they made sure to at least give Max their number.
So it isn’t just that they may live in the same house (per last comment section), but operate more on the same wave-length.
The members of the Activity Club divide themselves into cliques. In addition to living in the same house, Ed and Isabel have been spectrals the longest and share the same devil-may-care attitude toward dealing with supernatural problems. This may or may not have been evident in the first chapter, but Isaac does not get along well with them.
While the kids in the club generally work together, they aren’t all best friends. This will be more of a thing once Max settles in and when the group expands further.
It wasn’t especially evident, but there is always time.
I can’t wait to see it become more of a thing.
It didn’t really stand out because part of Isaac’s schtick is getting ignored, like when he tried to get Max’s attention or tell Izzy about Max but was pushed aside for so she could look at the monitor.
When Ed went out after the bat spirit, telling Isaac (squire boy to Spender’s King and Izzy’s Princess seemed more like guy’s ribbing each other.
Also Isaac could only muster a little energy ball at the fight, so of course he was lower down on the totem pole.
Ed & Izzy’s playful attitude do shine through though. Part of their awesomeness.
Is there a wider world of spectral’s that communicate? Maybe on internet forums that everybody else thinks is full of delusional oddballs? We’ve heard about a Mr Walker, IIRC.
Also there is a wider world of spectrals, yes. More on that later.
I can wait. You just write an interesting enough world that I’m curious. I would actually like to see rules for an old fashioned paper and dice RPG for this, since you seem to have consistent rules. Just dreaming, but still.
you talk as though there are way more activity club members than the five we’ve seen, and that this number is subject to grow.
i approve of this greatly.
That poor, poor doctopus…
But doctopi don’t feel pain, so it’s okay.
Isabel just might be crazier than Suzy.
Maybe i’m just thinking in a completely opposite direction from the author of this comic, but i’m really getting the feeling that PJ could end up being a major aid to Max in his future dealings with spirits. I feel like, once he gets adjusted, PJ could provide some useful info to Max about what to expect from various types of spirits and ghosts.
I’m with you on this. PJ was explaining a few things there. I envision Lefty watching his back too.
Factoid no. 154: Origami horses cannot gallop in a straight line. It must be the folds in their legs.
Oh drat, that sounded as though I was complaining. I am not complaining. Isobel is insane and that is WONDERFUL.
For all we know cans are like the most suicidal of items in this world, always throwing themselves to certain death trying to take a human with them.
I can only think “Poor Doctopus” this whole page
I love Max in the last frame. You don’t need to see his whole face to know what his expression is :D
I’m beginning to think there’s gotta be something in the water in Maycomb. That’s the only logical explanation for why everyone who lives there is going crazy.
But that’s being logical and boring. The fun explanation is that spirits are responsible for all the crazies.
Spirits in the water. Heh.
Aw, Max (kinda) stood up for PJ :’)
Either that or he’s too filled with bitter hatred at having his plundger stolen that he just wanted to stand up to Isabel
This comment haunts my dreams and causes me to snort at stupid times because of the second sentence.
Wait, so Isabel said they only pacify violent spirits, but it’s perfectly OK to for her to let her dragon-horse eat PJ?
I think it’s more along the lines of her making a rather grim joke, really.
They have rules about targeting only violent spirits, but those rules don’t extend to ghosts. More on this later. Also she was sort of kidding when she threatened PJ.
soo many lovely details :-)
I like Isabel’s action pose in panel 7 as she prepares to drive her paper horse.
Ed is SO copping a feel in the last few panels.
Definitely. Two-handed full body press while stationery (paper joke!), one handed while bounding away… But I don’t think it’s going anywhere unless his one-liners improve.
I was tipped off to this comic by the FIVE STAR REVIEW you got on Webcomic Overlook. Gotta say, you’re goin’ in my RSS. Looking forward to more! :D
Yeah, dude, congrats! Definitely a well-earned award, there.
“Hey dad, someone broke in through the front window and stole a plunger….”
^—the only “logical” excuse for the destruction, and it made me crack up xD
I want a doctopi plushie.
Also, was the horse-evil-face based on the poison-spitting-asaurus from Jurassic Park? Since that is what I immediately thought of.
I think I used up my hyphen quota for the day.
Plumbing emergencies can happen in the middle of the night.
If he didn’t want his window broken he should have put the plunger outside on the honor system.
I find it very interesting that Max seems to be unconsciously giving off spectral energy in the last panel, particularly since he probably still has adrenaline in his system from the confrontation, he’s not in mortal peril anymore. Especially since it comes off of him directly as well as the bat- namely, the wisp on his shoulder, which PJ seems surprisingly calm about chilling out in. That or maybe he’s just okay with Max right now because Max ranks a lot lower on his ‘going-to-make-my-undeath-come-to-a-sudden-end’ scale than Isabel.
SECOND to last panel, danget self.
Panel 6, the frightening thing is not the steed.
I agree, Ed is so creepy in that panel.
Also, operating theory: Ed could potentially be telling the truth, here. We never saw anything throw the can, just that it came from Ed’s direction. He could’ve launched it, or something else could have.
…If Max’s latent superpowers have anything to do with launching things at other things…
Haha, I’m seeing Max’s powers/aura kicking in when he’s angry. Hopefully he ends up being the berserker type in a fight.
Ed and Isabel are quickly becoming my favourites. Poor Max had better stop being bewildred and pull out some extra badass moves. HIYA! ACROBATIC EPIC BLACK SPECTRAL SLASH
….Giant time freezing snake? Where was that?
When Max was about to get punched and everything turned orange.
…How many steps are required in folding that?…
I still can’t get over the fact that Isabel has origami powers and I don’t…
I ship PJ and Max now.
Annnd I’m having flashbacks to the Predator movies.
WHY HAS NO ONE MENTIONED THE FIRST PANEL OF THIS PAGE, WHERE THE BACK OF THE ORIGAMI HORSE APPEARS TO BE TURNING INTO THAT TEACHER AND MAKING A STAR?
Am I the only one who noticed? XD
Thats Ed jumping onto the horse :d
Oh my… Well, I have read up to where Max is chasing the school bus, after getting hit by a cell phone, and I must say, you do a damn good job of teasing the readers. You knew way back here what the bat would do… I am impressed, good sir. Something so subtle would often be forgotten. I am so glad I am re-reading this.
I think the time-stopping snake is Max’s spirit from the bat thing. It’s got black spectral energy in one of the pages.
Holy crap, the can was thrown by Max! It’s the first mention of his magnet-powers!
NAH…. Nah…. nah.
Hate… for… Ed and Isabel… growing…..
Alright. Hate is a strong word. But Isabel. She scares me.
Panels 5 and 7 mainly… Still epic drawing tho. xD
Hey, wait a second.. Was Isabel just about to explain what the snake actually is?
