Charming like a journalist??
He sets a date and he delivers fine, fine facial expressions.
Great stuff, oh comic making person.
If that were me that phone would be going in a puddle.
Buttliege might be the best insult I’ve ever seen. I am going to use that in every day conversation.
That’s no insult, that’s practically an honorific.
I lol’d. ;D
Nah,that title still goes to knuckle monkey. XD
Collin’s facial expressions make this strip so much better.
Collin seems like the Isaac of Journalism Club, only he isn’t seething on the inside. The two really have to team up.
i think he’s trying to choke himself in the second to las panel
Actually, it looks like in the fourth-to-last panel Suzy might’ve accidentally been smothering him, and the second-to-last panel is after he wiggles free and takes a breath. That’s why his face looks a bit purple.
Panel 7, Collin reaches for phone, Suzy grabs his arm.
Panel 9, Suzy switched phone to other hand. Collin is now thoroughly enraged.
Panel 11, Suzy smothering Collin, keeping his head in place with her elbow.
Panel 13, Collin breaks free, gasping for air.
I read it as Collin trying to suck the phone into his mouth. Maybe I need to read more carefully next time I read through the entire archives again.
so she’s pushing him between her legs?
Thems the perks
Also, great chapter.
Y’know, not only did Suzy throw her phone from an awkward position from the bus window, she also managed to hit his forehead despite his hat. Considering the pencil throw at Dimitri in the first chapter, she’s probably a really good pitcher.
Now watch as Suzy throwing things becomes a running gag.
Pitcher? You don’t think she throws better than any of the Jets QBs?
Not only that, she managed to rebound the phone off his forhead, into his bag(since that phone is probably her’s, because it’s pink, and he had to find it(also he didn’t pick it up, because he was driving after her for quite a while))
Actually, I think the phone might have been magnetized to his bat, by the way he’s reaching. It certainly wasn’t in his backpack, at any rate.
Holy crap, you’re right! I’m the one who came up with that theory (yes, I’m still bragging about that), and I wouldn’t have even thought of that! :O
That and P.J. said that Max did a villanous power thus…
People throwing things at heads are a running gag.
Max fell on Johnny’s head.
Then threw a can of tomato soup at his head and hit.
Starchman nailed Max on the forehead.
The bat spirit and whale frog were dispatched with shots to the head.
When Max confronted the whale frog, a can narrowly missed Max’s head and broke the glass behind him (keeping a reflection from manifesting).
And of course little Suzy just nailed Max in the forehead.
Wow. That’s a lot of stuff you listed. But all true. GO THROWING THINGS AT PEOPLE’S OR SPIRITS’ OR GHOSTS’ HEADS!
Mayville is definitely a hard hat zone, although a full helmet is recommended. Try one of the new concussion resistant helmets.
I forgot that Lefty hit the whale frog in the jaw.
And when the series ends, it will all end up having been hallucinations caused by too many concussions.
The question is: who’s hallucinations were these?!
On page 18, Max clearly states that his house induces vivid nightmares “most likely due to the slow leak of subbteranean mind-altering gases.”
They’re probably under the influence the entire time.
This is really great, I have been enjoying every page.
Thank you, Zack.
Is suzy’s ringtone… dubstep?
By the way, you should get a favicon, zack!
At current it’s just the default
ANOTHER reason she should be labled as a menace!
A Crazed Goblin! That is exactly the right term to describe Suzy; the description I had been struggling to come up with all week!
Now why do I suddenly see Suzy astride a Goblin Wingboard (Spiderman), throwing pink phones instead of pumpkin bombs?
Wicked awesome idea! :D And Max will be the Spider-Man, since it’s still haven’t been made explicit what his powers are yet! For all we know, could be metallic webbing from the bat! XD
Just want to say CALLED IT! That must be because I deeply understand Suzy and her motivations. Because I love her.
Okay, that came out weird and creepy.
Suzy’s freaking ringtone is “Cinema” hahaha that made my day!! XD
Max should throw the phone at Isaac. Keep the chain going.
I like to pretend that in the second to last panel, Collin is using super breath powers so inhale vast quantities of air like a vacuum, which is causing Suzy’s head to tilt to the side.
I thought that was just asphyxiation
YES. YOU. ME. SAME PAGE.
He’s freaking out because she’s balancing it so precariously that the next big bump they hit (and school buses are not known for a velvet-smooth ride) will send his phone clattering to the floor.
As a journalist, I must say, I can be very, very charming. The operative word, however, is can be, because naturally I’m pretty much just a complete bastard.
Can’t say I’ve ever falconed someone with a phone, though.
Haha, falcon is a good verb.
I didn’t see it in the dictionary. ¿?
You should get a more radical dictionary.
In certain parallel universe, I’m sure idiots give great advice!
Too bad we’re not in a parallel universe. This one sucks.
So tempted to quote TomSka’s latest video… but I will.
Meanwhile, in a universe where idiots give great advice and fish ride bicycles…
I want to see that universe, hopefully the club will go there X3
I want to watch the fishes competing in the Tour de France in that universe.
Gotta love the dub.
Interesting choice of ringtone.
Ahahahahaaaaa this is great! ;D
Why is Suzy so desperate to get Max into the journalism club? I’m not seeing any clear reason for it.
I think it’s more to do with the fact that, in her eyes, Max ditched the Journalism Club to hang with the Activity Club, which Suzy totally hates!
Expanding her club and allowing her extra noses to stick into other people’s business.
Uncanny, I was listening to Bangarang by Skrillex as I opened up this page.
Also Zack, could “Buttleige” be a reference to “Butt Stallion” from Borderlands 2? Sounds pretty similar.
Nope, never played it. :D
I love love love the by-play with collin in the background. it adds another duhmention (it) to the page!
Also, the ringtone. just, just… what?
Ten bucks says a fish spirit on a bike rides by right now.
No, zack will just troll us. The fish will be riding a UNICYCLE
It could be a bicycle spirit riding a fish. We’ve already seen flying fish.
Totally called Suzy calling Max on Tumblr!
At some point, all the Paranatural fans should get into an argument just so we can all use the insults we learn here and understand each other. “Buttliege” is a completely perfect word.
I second this motion!
I thought suzy was going to throw collin’s phone at max
Yes, I was expecting people to think this and find it humorous. Yes yes.
Unless it IS collin’s phone :O
I thought, that in the second to last panel on page 18 max was running at super-speed, which is why suzy said ‘oh my WORD…’
So I thought that suzy wanted to record max’s super speed with collin’s phone for a journaling story or something.
That phone must have some long legs to keep up with Max! ;P
Zach, I haven’t seen dialogue this original and funny since Achewood at its best.
Thanks. I have to get around to reading Achewood sometime. I read that like arc with the fight thing a while back and loved it.
Zack, did you get copyright permission to use the lyrics of Cinema in your comic? Remember, this is getting more and more popular by the day, and Skrillex might not like to hear about this…
But seriously, it’s awesome to have scheduled updates, so I just thought I’d thank you for bringing the hilarity today after seeing Sinister. I mean, [SPOILER ALERT] a guy with a baseball bat trying to beat something spooky with a crazy girl attacking him? TOTAL REFERENCE TO THIS.
Haha, I actually just wrote down random sounds that I thought would be generic dubstep. I’ve never listened to Cinema/Skrillex. Also I don’t know what Sinister is. :D
Ah, the classic “How-could-I-copy-it-when-I’ve-never-heard-of-it” excuse? I gotcha; Mr. Zuipperlips tells no one of nothing. ^+++++++^
But seriously, Skrillex might be your can of soup, and I’m shocked you don’t know about the newest movie featuring things that are, you know, supernormal! Wait, no, that’s not right… Well, you know what I mean!
Fantastic strip as usual but my only complaint is Zack in the first panel. His legs and scooter look a little awkward.
Not Zack, Max. Wooooops.
Yes, I have to work on my anatomy.
Your anatomy as in the anatomy you draw or your anatomy as in your own awkward legs?
They look okay to me.
You’re getting so much better at facial expressions! You look like you have fun with it!
So much fun.
Why is suzy so CUTE?
My old sipping instincts are tingling!
I’m sure sipping Zinfandel while shipping is a common combination.
i’m personally going for suzy x rainbow dash x sauron.
How does Sauron add anything to the dynamic? DOOM is both more communicative and outgoing and is therefore a superior 3rd angle in the OT3.
Noooo, don’t ship where the author can see it! You have to keep him untainted.
I have to say I love your fans and the weird stuff they come up with just as much as I love this comic
Yes everyone here is pretty clever.
You must be proud that your comic attracts clever people then haha
Was pointed at this comic by a friend yesterday, just finished the archives now. Marvellous work; it’s nothing you haven’t heard before, but the expressiveness of your characters (both in expressions and body language) are top-notch and help make Paranatural a joy to read. Thank you for creating and sharing such a great comic!
I also, having read the comments, think it’s great how you interact with your fans so much – not many artists answer questions and banter around with their commentators with good humour like you do. Best of luck – and I’ll join that list of people waiting to happily pay you money down the line for a book. In the meantime, I’ll recommend this to all my other friends in order to help reach that point faster. :)
How angry a person is at any given moment is reflected by how well-defined his teeth are.
is it just me or did she injure his wits, judging from the response in the last pannel?
I believe that’s just Max calling her an idiot in a sardonic manner.
From now on I shall refer to Suzy as “Blonde Haruhi”
she reminds me more of the twins, kyoya and russia (hetalia) mixed together to create awsome
personally rooting for EDxISABELLE *winks*
and wants to write a fanfic when comic reaches over 2 weeks in universe @ the rate its going (so i can have more insight)
someone plz remind me i promised cauz this is now a regular thing
ps-plz dont tell on R.Js gender yet (i have an idea for a fanfic and if its revealed R.Js a boy it‘ll kill me and send me into influential depression mode)
NOTSPOILER SPOILER: The bus is the shortcut.
My friends and I (mostly blairdiggory and I) were talking about how the secret shortcut seems so far away. Then one of my friends is like, “The bus is the shortcut”.
Ahaha I remember that
Also I think we were talking about crack ships at the same time
Max’s bat x soup can ftw
Oh yeah. My friends and I were also discussing Suzy’s phone.
“Max should keep the phone.”
“Suzy could could get a hold of him anytime.”
“Using Colin’s phone.”
“How’d he explain that to his parents?”
“Oh yeah. My phone was stolen by my PSYCHOTIC GIRLFRIEND!”
Because Max obviously needs a third phone in his arsenal of portable communication devices.
Suzy and Collin having a relationship aside from a Evil Dictator and her Minion view would be frightening indeed.
I would wear “insolent children” clothes.
Is that a band or something?
A rather fake one, yes.
We constantly bug Zack to make and sell clothes with “Insolent Children” and “Clothing” brand (as Isaac wears). He probably will some day.
I think he said he would/has/will.
My friends and I have been discussing ships. Or rather Crack Ships.
Soupcan x Max’s bat (blairdiggory’s OTP)
Butterfly Ghost Man x Isabel
Max’s face x Suzy’s cellphone (SO canon)
Max’s bat x All inamimate objects
Apple Thangs x Dimitri
Everything x Max’s face
I love you, Zack Morrison.
This is just glorious! With each passing page, my love for this comic grows. Do not stop, sir, for the cries of anguish that would resound worldwide from such an event may lead to the apocalypse.
-this dramatic spiel is brought to you by Genndy Oda C.O.G..-
Collin why must you be so cute? ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ
love the way the b from bass is partially hidden. Nice touch there.
yes suzy, help max find his passion for sarcasm
PANEL 13. I see you back there. That kid is dying. XD
How long before she does a full 360°?
Hot snap, I’m loving the analogies. They kill me :D
This has so much potential. This could become a tv series. Good job and keep up the good work!
Why does she have porn music on her phone?
