Max has clearly found the most obvious and rational way out of his predicament.
That kid has seen it all. She’s so unimpressed.
Actually, her lack of pupils would imply she’s seen nothing.
Or maybe she’s seen all that she, in turn, has seen nothing?
Woah even your regular noses got weird while I wasn’t paying close attention. Cool!
Aliens be crazy.
Also, Suzy’s face in panel 6. She’s sho happeeh~
And in panel 7, I can’t tell if she’s just shocked, impressed, or some strange mixture of both. I’m going for impressed.
she revels at the chance to make loud noises that annoy people.
THIS. A THOUSAND TIMES THIS.
And he makes the jump, will he stick the landing? OH! The judges all give him 10 out of 10!
No wait, it’s Up to Eleven! Wait, no, it Broke the Rating Scale! Hang on, it, it… it’s Beyond the Impossible!
AND THE CROWD GOES WILD FOR MAXWELL PUCKETT!
Max’s last name is Puckett? I always assumed it was Max Powers or something.
Yeah, it’s shown a few times in the comic in Chapter 1, mainly when Suzy was reading his records and when Mr. Spender was checking for the “Night Lamp” spirits.
Over nine thousand.
It’s amazing! He’s actually diving right out of his own panel!!! The judges will need to make a new score for this one!
TV Tropes will Ruin Your Life.
THIS. IS. SO. FORKING. ARSOM.
man, I love your comic. such *amazing* timing on this one.
magic kid, to the chase!
Zack I want to give you money so bad! Stop inhibiting me! You’re like SA, Shopaholics Anonymous
The bald guy from that one page in Starchman’s class reappears!
Most important character in Paranatural reappears, it is him.
Where is his twin brother?! The one with the green shirt?!
The other perfect twin is more than likely on the other side of the bus seat. I guess we can’t really tell.
Also, the blond girl behind him with double braids, wasn’t she in Garcia’s class?
So she is! I had to recheck Mr. Garcia’s class to confirm, but… you were right! :O
Zack, I give you my honest-to-goodness applause for your consistent avoidance of Faceless Masses and use of Cast of Snowflakes! KEEP IT UP! :D
Oh, the TV Tropes is strong with this one.
Concur’d. A thousand times concur’d.
I LOVED MY PRESENT! Thank you!
It’s like the world of Paranatural had so much awesome when it was made that everyone got a big pile of awesomeness to use when they were born.
Zack, you are the best ever.
I love the fact that Suzy complies to Max’s demand, no question asked. Except for once the demand is fulfilled, that is.
The question is, whether Aliens Be Crazy was checkout out from the school library, or if it is a required textbook.
Knowing this town? The latter.
At first I misread the title as ‘Aliens: The Crazy’, and I just figured she played the more obscure White Wolf games…
That’s the beta playtesting version of Changeling: The Lost before they decided on the name they’d use for publication.
Probably not a textbook, but likely supplementary course materials.
also heeeeey drill
People for the Ethical Sedation of Sound Effects (much different from the people for the ethical seduction of sound effects)
*starts playing stereotypical seduction background music*
That’s BACKGROUND MUSIC, not SOUND EFFECTS, you FOOL!
You can’t just seduce sound effects. You have to romance them first.
“People hanging around Suzy have to get used to ducking a lot to avoid being punctured by rogue sound effects.”
They probably also do that to avoid being punctured by pencils.
So….many…..easily ignored details in your pages, its like the more we stare at it the better it gets…..hard to find good webcomics like that these days
That sheer intensity of Suzy’s face when she says “Always.” That is the face of a grizzled news reporter. Or a psychopath.
Or BOTH! :D
I’m not sure there’s a difference with Suzy
I can’t seem to make out terminally bored chick’s shirt.
I feel like I should read it though because all the other clothing has been entertaining.
what could it be.. :I
I’d say Max has stretchy powers, but he doesn’t have his tool with him.
Also, that little girl is going to be relevant to the plot at some point, I just know it.
That brown eye’d girl has some good reflexes.
Clearly secretly evil. No one good can bend their head that far back.
Nah, I think that’s just yoga. Nothing compared to what we’ve seen Max do.
While still an astonishing feat, Max, I cannot imagine that this wouldn’t take longer than just running around the bus.
“Oh, well. Excuse me.”
I don’t think Max could have just run around the bus. In the last comic, both ends of the bus were blocked by fences.
All that fence-jumping earlier in the chapter would’ve come in handy again. xP
Checking again, I see that you are quite correct! :0 Wild antics save the day again. Hopefully.
I wish I could leap through a window 6ft in the air!… :D
Nimble little monkey, isn’t he?
Han solo [b]WISHES[/b] he was Max!
What’s the story behind the girl covering her ears?
Also, where is the favicon? I DEMAND A FAVICON, please please pretty please *puppyeyes*
I don’t know what happened to it.
Your response goes great with your avatar.
http://paranatural.net/favicon.ico returns a zero-length file instead of a 404.
I think either the favicon was interrupted while uploading or the file was curropted on the server.
Damn it! I warned the file that the server was a bad influence! We all knew this would happen though. The server just looked so cool wearing his sunglasses indoors and smoking those semi-vegan cigarettes.
Panel 5. If you needed to sum up Suzy and Collin’s characters in one panel, this is it.
That last panel is about the most amazing still image…ever.
I imagine it slowing down Matrix-style.
Electric guitars screaming in the background.
Chants epic-ing up the Moment.
And doll-eyed girl still looking, well, doll-eyed through the whole thing.
Suzy’s eagerness to do possibly questionable things is a a bit frightening. xD
Is the girl behind that seat the same background character that saw Max get beat up by Johnny in the first chapter at school? Is she witnessing all of his bully moments?
Now to just get out the other end
This webcomic is TOO GOOD BABY!!!
I’m always just going to leave you a 5/5 for everything you do sir.
Now that is what I call parkour style!
Op, op op op, oppa parkour style!
…sorry, couldn’t resist :[
This. Must. Be. Made…Somehow.
I LOVE that Suzy opens the window and then asks why. :D
I also don’t know how italics work, apparently.
Imma just say, Collin has been to hell and back with Suzy. I die laughing everytime I reread this page “SUZY WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”
max says to go to the other isle. but the pictures show her in the same isle DX
Nah, she crossed over.
But seriously, she’s still on the left side of the panel, which makes things kinda tricky, but look at the position of the seats. The “camera” as it were was facing the back of the bus in the previous strips. Now it’s facing the front of the bus, and you can see the kids up ahead turning to look back at what’s going on.
I broke the 180 degree rule. Lesson learned, won’t do that again.
i take that back ^^’
i just looked at it wrong
that girl is totally staring at max’s junk
Finally we get to see Max’s parkour skills! Too much teasing!
You don’t stop at obstacles. You go over or through them.
I just realized! Max’s SWAN DIVE in the last panel! He got that from his dad, didn’t he?! Chapter 1, page 6!! :O
At last, we see how on earth they are actually related.
Well, from the very start, we were informed that Max was quite the gymnast.
Max is the master of parkour.
OH. MY. GOD. Is that the emergency alarm going off in the backround?
Suzy’s face in panel 6….
I could stare at it for HOURS.
Panel 4 Suzy! Oh my goodness. I really love how unique (charismatic?) you make each character–even the background ones! I look forward to next week! ^^
Colin is going to need a therapist by the time this day is done; either a psychotherapist, or a physiotherapist, given how much of a mauling Suzy’s given him today.
So is this comic big enough yet that we can start shipping characters? Because if so, I want to hereby claim the first otp between Suzy and Johnny.
…Mostly because their children would be the most horrifically insane individuals ever to walk the earth, but that’s what makes it FUN!
I second this, like a million times!
We already starter back in Chapter 2. So far the suggested pairings have been…
- Johnny and Isaac
- Whale-Frog and Hissing Pete
- Max’s dad and Time Eel
And one or two others I probably forgot.
o.O They’re twelve!
Who, the characters or the commenters? XD
Oh, and Suzy/Collin… just to inflict more suffering upon the latter. >:D
That was my failed attempt at “hypocritical humor.” As you can see, I fail quite fantastically at it.
Dude… You are sick. You disgusting, disgusting man.
Everyone knows Suzy/Max is the best one! 8D
I just want to say that I really love how much variety you put into the corneas of the cast. Not often that you see all these different styles of eyes in one piece, and it works!
Clearly the next rational thing to do would be to hijack the bus and give pursuit.
Hey Zack! What happens when a medium dies while still a host to a spirit? Can a ghost be possessed?
Can GHOSTS possess things? If the answer to both is yes, this leaves a horrific chain-possession cheat in the spectral world!
I could have sworn that Zack said in the comments to the last page that the spirit ends back up in that wispy form like the whale-frog and has to find another object/host.
Yes, this. Ghosts can’t be mediums, since the spirit needs to hide in a physical body.
According to Zack, if a Medium dies before the spirit in him fully regenerates, it appears again in its wispy form and must immediately possess something or someone in order to keep from dissipating.
OMG! Zack had an icon change! *foams at mouth and faints*
Can you guys see it? It still hasn’t changed for me.
Still looks the same to me.
Looks the same to me too.
I can see it, but not on the comments pages. Just on the normal update page
I love it by the way, it looks so cool
It was changed, but it changed back after I posted a message. :(
Dang, I don’t see it either. Gotta empty my cache.
Did anyone else notice red shirt kid on the far right of the last panel?
Yup, he’s from Starchman’s class. The girl behind him is from Garcia’s class. It’s great that Zack brings back nameless background characters, isn’t it? :)
Nameless… for now! ;)
NOOOO!!!! SSSHHHHH!!!! Don’t say that!!!!!! In the words of Collin: “Pandora’s Box. You just ripped it open.”
after coming back here several times since this page was i posted i just noticed that book “Aliens be crazy”
Zack, are you having issues? Your avatar seems troubled.
Nah, I’m good.
It is fixed! Glad you got it all sorted out
I might have to make an epic icon like that…
Suzy’s hair resembles a tropical bird wearing tropical shades
This has to be the best art I have ever seen in a comic, let alone a webcomic. You convey the tone of the comic perfectly with the style, and each color, each shadow, each line has something to say, has style and personality and means something. The writing is just as good if not better.
I caught up every page up to here in one night after being introduced by a friend and I find myself checking every day just in case you update. Amazing work.
WHat we need here is more posters with Gravatars, to make this comment page look even more awesome.
I agree! :D
Alright, I’m curious. Who’s favourite character is Max? I mean, Johnny and Suzy are amazing, but come on, our protagonist is a snarky, preteen acrobat!
He’s such a great character though. He’s chill about his powers, not overly excited about them, but not griping about it either. Also, best hat.
…me. Well, I’m torn between either him or Isaac. But Max is currently ahead in the race, just slightly.
Definitely a Max fan. Isaac and Johnny are great, but they’re just support characters for Max. Their awesomeness just makes Max all the more awesome!
I have just caught up to this comic after sitting for a whole night and reading it, and it is now my favorite webcomic. I love it. I love you. Just sayin’.
Why, yes Suzy, Max is crazier than you.
Man, Susie looks surprised.
Anybody else hear the “Genome Soldier Alert” sound effect when they saw the exclamation points in the first panel?
I think Suzy is my favorite character.
I like that green-sweatered(?) kid with the dark brown, shaggy hair. He’s adorable. Can we see him again? Maybe with some speaking parts? An angsty backstory?
He is a victim of terrible internet connection. Truly, something horrible and traumatizing.
I’ll add him to my background character chart.
Oh, goodness. Zack, I’m continually amazed by the fact that you reply to your fans comments. It’s just awesome. I’m trying to maintain composure here. Trying.. and…. -cough- failing…
I didn’t say anything.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!! :DDDDD
Imma be thankful for God, my family, my friends, and THIS COMIC! IT’S SOO COOL!!!
Thank you for using your gift of awesome drawing and writing, Zack! This comic is so cool! :D *high-five over the internet*
-being a Canadian-
-wishing super badly that there was a “delete comment” button-
*facepalm* >_< Oh my gosh. I feel so embarrassed now.
But seriously, why’re you embarrassed? I was kidding. Happy Thanksgiving to you American people! We’ve already had our fill our turkey, please whole-heartedly enjoy yours.
Zack? You should do a sketch for every major holiday. Might I suggest Isaac dressed up as a turkey? Oh god please.
Oh. I thought you meant “Zack is Canadian.” XD
And happy October 8th to you as well, Canadian-man
Well, technically the second Monday in October; not necessarily Oct. 8th. It changes every year.
I just noticed that highlighting text exclusively on your website is in a fabulous shade of pink instead of BSOD Blue.
Your comic. Is awesome. *throws money at the screen
I NEED MY PARANATURAL, MAN! GIMME MY FIX!
Brown-eyed girls reminds me of Clandy. Like ridiculously so.
This comic is basically the best thing available on the internet right now. Expressions, expressions everywhere!
wait the kids on the bus are purple. SO YOU LIED TO US THE BUS IS EMPTY EXCEPT TO THE PARANATURAL PEOPLE
