That’s some discreet nose picking there.
dang, didn’t notice til you pointed it out.
The downside to being the most ignored character besides Collin.
I do like how people in this world don’t wear the same cloths every day.
I think the alt-text got cut off again.
(Or is it cliffhanger alt text? WHAT’S THE FACIAL EXPRESSION CALLED, ZACK? WHAT’S THE FACIAL EXPRESSION CALLED!?)
Ah, yes. Thanks. Fixed it. Got to remember that quotes are incompatible with alt text.
You can just use an escape character! " or if that doesn’t show in these comments, & quot ; without the spaces. Or look at this http://www.theukwebdesigncompany.com/articles/entity-escape-characters.php
Cool, I’ll try that next time I need to. Thanks.
I love that face x)
Oh Johnny, y u so suspicious?
I think he’s afraid that Isaac will steal Max… Johnny has big plans for Max…
Johnny, how can you NOT know who Isaac is?!
Max, you look worried that Johnny’s seeing you with Isaac. What’s up with that?
I think he was more worried that Johnny was about to beat up Isaac? But it’s possible.
“Max and Isaac sitting in a tree…” :P
I think we need to get an illustrated chart of that secret handshake. It’s so tantalizing. I’m tantalized.
Johnny’s starting to grow on me. Like a tumor that has recently learned to sing.
“Yeah boi yeah gimme dat skin”
Oh man, he is rapidly becoming the best. It’s hard to tell who’s zaniest in this comic.
That… that SHIRT is fantastic. It looks like it would stay still while he was moving. Like it’s one of those weird pictures that has a layer beneath it so it looks like it’s… BLARGH @.@ AWESOME SHIRT HUGE GUY WHO IS THE WIND.
Oh wow I didn’t even notice it was a texture.
Oh yeah like in Chowder?
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if that guy’s first lines were “radda radda” so…
Johnny’s got some pretty flexible fingers, going from a nose flick to a fist pound to a handshake.
Or maybe it’s the other way around. either way, I will now dedicate my life to replicating Johnny’s awesome hand moves.
I like to think he snuck the nose boop in between the fist bump and the handshake.
That plaid shirt is simply badass. I really admire your stylish clothes choice.
That’s a very elaborate and well-precticed looking handshake.
When did they practice that?
It looks like Johnny’s doing all of the work, maybe trying to make it seem like he and Max are buddies. Max is just holding his fist out. I bet Johnny spends hours practicing his handshakes in front of the mirror, though…
:P I was kidding
I just wanted to let you know that you’re amazing at expressions and story writing. I always look forward to updates! Keep up the great work!
YES! Best character makes his return!
I think that Johnny is jealous of the fact that Isaac has more flamboyant hair.
It’s MAGIC hair! :O
As the animal kingdom has taught us, individuals with more flamboyant colorings are dangerous rivals to their paler-hued kindred as they are better equipped to secure a mate and pass on their genetics. Johnny shouldn’t get so upset though, he can clearly overcome his disadvantage if he has a better dance routine.
This is CTVS applying rudimentary ornithology to human behavior, because this just isn’t awkward enough.
That response was supposed to be to Kate, not The Ninja. My most sincere apologies, o practitioner of ninjutsu.
I guess I didn’t get the memo. So Mondays are the new update days?
Isaac is by far my favorite followed closely by Max. ^^ Johnny is cool too though. I have a feeling he’s about to get cooler.
Jhonny is so changable!! LOL
and that high-five/punch thing! xD
Johnny. Best character. And considering what I’ve seen so far, that is a truly mighty achievement.
Do non spectrals not notice Isaac because he’s inhabited by a ghost?
Studies suggest that normal people does not usually talk to things they can’t see
They dont? Are you sure? I talk to things all the time. :C
What about religious people, Gods aren’t physically visible yet people talk to them.
… I’m thinking this far too deeply.
It could suggest an effect of Isaac’s Medium power.
Whenever you post something, your avatar makes me think of all the negative implications it could have.
Right, I could be holding up some other dude’s severed arms.
You mean you’re not?
Or you are signaling that you are in the process of transforming into a fish.
You defiantly couldn’t be holding up your own severed arms.
Is Max sweating in the last panel?
This is my favorite webcomic ever, with its art, humor, storyline, and everything else. :) I just wish it could update more often… *wink wink nudge nudge*
Octo-Johnny is actually the final boss of Paranatural.
Oh god I missed Johhny so much. <3
Actually, I think Mr Spender is.(What could be behind the dark glasses?)
I would like to propose marriage to Jonny. Dibs on the tux
I want a “CLOTHING” shit, and I want a “Kingpin” shirt, but neither for me. Instead, I shall force them off as holiday gifts upon my younger cousins, who are about the same age as these characters, and we shall see if fashion styles impart personality traits.
I’m either an evil scientist or the worst older cousin ever. (I mean, no matter how cool, what kid that age wants clothes as a present?)
AAAAAND we see why I wish I could alter comments like these. Oh, typos, how I love thee.
Your emoticon makes the”AAAAAND” soo much better. xD
Aah. Not emoticon, gravatar!
I feel really bad for the cousin that gets the “Clothing” shit
I guess they’d have to wear….
(Please dont kill me :D)
Just wanted to let you know that this is my newest favorite series ever, i havn’t laughed this much in a long time. Your writing is amazing, the story is interesting, the characters are well fleshed out and your art style is absolutely wonderful! Thank you for blessing the world with this gift.
Johnny is my favorite.
You’re just now noticing? I’ve noticed ever since panel 7, chapter 1, page 41…
Every page there is something I wish was an icon
Aaaaaaand now Johnny and Isaac have a throwdown over who has the better red spiky hair. Bets, anyone?
Well, if it’s their hair doing battle, I vote the natural ginger.
Hrm, Isaac’s hair is spectrally influenced to be spiky. So either other people don’t see his spiky hair or he’s going to have to become a recluse when he starts to REALLY look like his possessor.
Or, as is suggested by people up the page, the spectral effect on his appearance somehow makes him really forgettable to normal people or something.
I doubt it, I think Isaac is just cursed with the inability to retain people’s attention as he seems to be one of the most normal people around
that sounds like the Silence from Doctor Who XD
I take it Johnny decides someone is his friend after he beats the crap out of them. I love it :D
Johnny’s glow in the last panel.
WHITE SPECTRAL ENERGY
Nah. I think that’s just motion lines to show his head trembling in rage.
Is “Joking around” in your dictionary?
I found joking, and around, but not together! Damn you Websterrrrrr!!!
is that one or two volunteers to show Max why he won’t like it when Isaac is angry?
THESE goons. Anger gills, that’s divine. Also, don’t fear Isaac! I bet Johnny’s hair isn’t spiky “all on its own”!
Oh my god what if normal humans can’t see his crazy hair – that would be too funny.
Max could see his funky hair before he was able to see spirits, though.
That’s why it would be funny.
I’m noticing a definite trend here in the comics. Therefore, I declare that whatever character is currently with Max is the official “Greatest Character Ever!©”.
You have to open a web store for the clothes in the comic. I would be buying them by the dozen.
Many have asked for various clothing here.
It would be funny if a film major with writing and drawing ability ended up as a successful clothing designer.
I just really really really want to hug Ollie. Adorable!!
You don’t so much hug Ollie as get posted on the side of Ollie…
This is REALLY awesome! I plan to someday make webcomics, y’know! And this is a masterpeice! Teach me your ways!
So does this new header-image-majiggy mean that Mr. Spender’s glasses are his tool? (They’re up there with the known activity club tools, is why I’m asking.)
Also, unrelated to this page, but is Max bad with names? He couldn’t remember Ed or Isaac’s names.
I’ll let the comic answer the glasses tool thing but yeah Max is bad with names.
Is it just a coincidence that there are ZERO sprits/ghosts in this page?
Probably because Johnny and Ollie can’t see them.
Careful, Johnny. Issac might attack with his Spiky Hair. It’s super effective.
best thing about this comic? The hand with fingers. Zack is not afraid of drawing them, and they look good.
That said, anyone else noticed the double finger in the last panel?
He’s pointing with two fingers.
yeah, but it could be understood as “I have my eyes on you”, but the movement lines would be missing for that (pointing at own eyes, pointing at the other).
He’s just too manly to point with one finger.
what kind of brush pen do you use?
AHHH GOOD thats the same one i just bought/recently lost
I love Johnny.
This might be an odd question Zack, but do you happen to play any games by Double Fine Studios? The way your characters interact reminds me of games like Costume Quest and Psychonauts. And that is very awesome.
Not really. I have a friend who is a big Double Fine fan who’s tried to get me to play some of their games. I played through a good chunk of Psychonauts quite recently and would have finished if it didn’t lag so much on my terrible computer. Great game, great art style, great dialogue.
Interestingly, I kinda feel like Double Fine would love your work. Your characters and dialogue and semi-surreal environments would all go along fantastically with their style. If you ever got the itch to go into the video game world with Paranatural, maybe talk to them.
I can see a veeeeeeeeery faint red glow around Johnny’s hair in the last three panels. Not sure if graphical error.
I see it too. That’s some serious attention to detail.
Doesn’t look like an error.
The facial expressions you draw remind me of Awkward Zombie. Gosh darn that comic has the BEST FACIAL EXPRESSIONS hahaha
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with him? Every time he’s around this comic goes from funny to bloody hilarious! xD
Just started reading trough the archives and I’m already hooked, this is an awesome comic man!!
