What would happen if you stuck car keys in his face
Oh stop being a baby and emerge yourself into that man’s body, Max.
The only pause I made was the one where I needed to catch my breath after all the laughing.
That’s my rapper name
Hahaha, zack, how on earth do you come up with this shit, I laughed so hard I woke my whole family up, good job man, great work on this as always :D
It’s never a nice feeling when you’re just walking along and then -WHAM- everything sideways.
Freaking paradigm shifts.
I know, logic is such a pain in the ass.
just let go of all logic and go for it dude, thats what i do :D
Don’t take this the wrong way but, are you high or just a hippy?
Ah, yes. It’s always easy to mistake extremely slow digestion for the aging process. Perhaps, too easy…
Wonder what Doorman wants to discuss with our Young Master over here… Maybe he wants Max to promise to keep his whereabouts a secret as well? Or maybe foretell a prophecy? Or maybe… to finally reveal the truth behind “the pizza incident”?!
I hope its the last one
He wants to comment on how Max’s pupils are freakishly tiny.
Is it the truth that pizza incidents are the floating in streams of the spirit-like soul?
Quickly, Max! Get *inside* me!
..is it possible to do italics in this or somethin?
Italics are done like this:
Whatever you want to put in italics without the spaces.
Doh! It ignored the spaces. Lemme try again.
Whatever you want to put in italics without the periods.
…I guess there’s no way to show it. Just use the HTML tag for italics.
Perchance do you mean <i>this</i>?
Yup, it worked. For future reference, you show them by trading the < and > with < and >, respectively.
Yeah, I did. Thanks.
Aww man, I don’t get it! D: *facepalm*
Paranaturalist: < i > Testing i< /i > without the spaces.
Whoops. I meant < i > Testing < /i > for:
You mean like this?
it’s cool to overuse it
So its… This?
I prolly fooked up.
Hoooooooo I did it!
Hrm. Perhaps I will also give this a try?
Cool, man. Isabel could use Doorman if he ever became a tool.
She already has a book as a tool.
Doesn’t mean she can’t have more than one!
OH YEAH AND MAX CAN HAVE THAT PLUNGER THE WHALE FROG POSSESSED, EVENTUALLY MAYBE A MIRROR, A FIRE FLOWER, AND A DIAMOND. NOT A GEM DIAMOND. A SHAPE DIAMOND.
They gotta be black for Max to use them.
…that sounded wrong.
dude, you gravatar makes every commont better
I get the feeling that Isabel would prefer something more combat oriented and less lecture-y/guilt tripping.
Don’t we all?
I would prefer doorman as my tool. or at least, his spirit.
I’m not saying that he’s not cool I’m just saying that he’s kind of a dick.
That she would.
Take a look, it’s in a book, a reading rainbow that’s eating your face as your transported to another place in the world.
“I must discuss something serious with you Max.
I have no face~”
Isaac’s just in the back of the room, chillin’.
i have a feeling he is staring at something bad going down. perhase what the “other master” is doing.
It’s funny that we’ve been waiting for weeks for him to get to school, and it’s only been a few hours in the story.
My friend and I have been going on about that for weeks.
Longest walk to school ever.
I hope it has been less than a few hours, because otherwise they are late as balls.
Do they teach stuff like that to 10 year olds?
Can’t tell if Max is being a smart cookie, or I’ve forgetten more of my childhood than I realized.
I didn’t learn about thesis statements til my freshman year of high school. Max must be pretty well read for a twelve year old (maybe that’s his big secret– he’s a closet nerd).
I remember 5th grade being the first grade in which I had to start writing essays, so I guess that would make sense.
I learned about thesis statements when I was 10.
I learned the term ‘Thesis Statement’ just now… and I’ve gone through college. I missed something somewhere along the line didn’t I?
You could say that.
1) they look like there a little older, like 12 or 13.
2) I learned thesis statements in late 4th and 5th grade, but i dont remember nothin about them now. :P
I have a feeling Doorman is about to deliver another pearl of wisdom, hopefully in less panels than he did on the last one since I don’t think Max has the patience for that. Also sassy Doorman. Mr. Spender you are going to have to step up your game to compete with this guy, and by that I mean you are going to have to pole-vault your game up several stories.
I imagine Knob Bison just wants to flash Max a little while longer.
The door is his jacket ……so
does the door open all the way back at school?
What if some unlucky person (lets say Mr.Splender) was about to open the door?!??!!
Did the door slap him in the face?
How many Doctopi would it take to take away the pain?
Does this explain why nobody like Issac?
Because he’s always there when the door slaps some poor fools face?
Oooooh man, I don’t think I’m going to get any sleep!
They’re probably still late I bet.
they have been walking to school for 35 weeks on our time but in theirs it may have been 30 to 40 minutes.
That was the most rigorous journey ever.
…Wait. People ought to walk through that door normally. So do Issac and Max just… Appear out of nowhere to other people inside the room? And what happens if people walk through the door normally while Doorman is basically connected…
…I’m just gonna stop before I fry my brain.
I think XANA has already fried your brain (am I getting the reference right?)
They come out of Doorman’s… behind.
The door is probably jammed.
since the doorman is a spirit, normal people cant see him, so they think that they”re walking through a normal door, while Max and Isaac probably look like they’re also walking through that normal door. The spectral magic (lets put it like that) probably makes it look as though the door is opening, even though it isn’t.
I think the most probable way for this to work is that both Doorman and the actual door are connected to the room at the same time, and yet don’t affect each other (think of a Y-shaped hallway, with the two prongs being Doorman and the natural door). Both connect to the room, but neither have much effect on the other.
It probably helps if you just realize its all ghostly spectral magic and it’s not that big of a deal.
Yeah ghostly spectral magic. Don’t think about it so hard.
And… Cynical Max returns.
I don’t think he ever went away…
he never did. he just kinda stopped talking.
He was just talking off-panel.
Once again, I laughed. Every page without fail, I laugh. This is a good comic.
The worst thing about this comic is having to wait a week to see what next great thing will be said. Loving it though, keep up the great work!
The lighting screams swag from the pits of the doormans bowels
“Oh please. Young Master is my rapper name” OMG HAHAHA!!!
I can never remember how to spell gist/jist so from now on I’m going to say thesis statement.. or maybe ‘opening paragraph’
Dear Zack, please use Max in panel 8 for a mugshot of Max in the eventual Character Page.
Thank you very much. Bless up.
I think it’s the ninth, but that’s actually a cool idea.
I said the eighth and I meant the eighth. The one with the <3 <3 *3* PERSPECTIVE *3* <3 <3 where Max's face is squished by the sheer force of our collective gaze.
Squished faces are the cutest faces there are.
Ha, awesome page.
I wonder what Issac is looking at in the last panel.
I must discuss something serious with you Max…
…does this portal…make me look fat?
…You need to stop being so sarcastic.
does connorses = Connors?
Or perhaps a fusion between Connors and a horse.
That makes sense.
Yeah sometimes I use the name Connors.
You need to stop taking things so seriously and that wasn’t sarcasm, it was being snarky.
Hmmm, It would imply that the beach must be closed then.
But, but… Time Eels said snarks, which are combinations of snipes and sharks, mostly eat small fish and beach-dwelling invertebrates!
No one here is a beach-dwelling invertebrate, right?
* shyly raises hand*
XD It’s not a noun!
So that’s what M Bison is hiding from us…
“More like Boreman am I right”
An excellent comic as always, and Max is back to his normal self. I DO have to wonder what would happen if you put a car key in Doorman’s face. Would you remotely turn on the car? Would you be able to walk INSIDE the car from Doorman? Would everything be divided by 0, blowing up the universe after teleporting everyone to an alternate world where space-squid control the internet? So many possibilities.
Oh, and since someone else asked about italics, I’m testing out if anything works:
But I thought his rapper name was mc chris…
??? No man, that’s me!
This is the third confused-Max gravatar in a row…
Where’s Mr. Garcias?
It’s like where’s Waldo only better!
I wonder what’s causing Issac to press his face up against the window in the last panel
Nice touch on the inside of Doorman’s jacket, having the small window that school doors have.
In fact, bravo for not going the full Alice in Wonderland route where Doorman would be literally door shaped, rectangular and flat. Combining a doorman’s uniform so smoothly with a door and evil hands is far more interesting.
Oh man, I hope it’s about Max’s attitude.
I dunno how to tell you all this, but…
PARANATURAL’S ON FANDOMSECRETS!
(secret no. 9. Also in comment thread no 9.)
The site is a place where people can make secrets about anything related to fandom, and if you haven’t heard about it then GET IN HERE!
Max discussing something serious? It would be a new experience for him.
This just in: The doorman is the Tardis’ cousin
This is pretty absurd
The 4th panel is honestly my most favorite
wait what happens if someone tries to enter the room normally at the same time as someone entering through Doorman? Do they end up telefragging each other?
I think they would just end up in the room together, and the person who came in normally would be a little surprised.
what would happen if doorman was in the same room that someone was going into, through him?
Now you’re thinking with portals.
From the looks of it and the inside of Doorman’s coat, you would step up into him and in through the door to the Paranatural Activity Club’s room.
in the same situation, what would happen if he stuck his hand inside himself
That would depend on how his powers work.
Some portals work like a transporter. You are either on one side or the other, never partway through.
Others has the natural transition of a real door frame.
Of course the power may not allow doorman to reach inside himself.
If it is possible, it might me more interesting to ask what would happen if Doorman were inside the PAC room, facing the door while right next to the frame, THEN reaching inside himself.
Reaching in puts his hand through the door back into himself, going through the door, etc. Infinite feedback.
Or, if we assume it’s possible to leave the room through Doorman given Isaac can look back out through him from inside the room:
What would happen if Doorman were to leave the room through himself?
What if he used the key to the house they’re in?
HE’S THE DOORMAN!
NA, NA, NA
I think that anxone enteting thr door would sctually exit through the open flsp of the doorman’s coat and into the abandoned house where max is.
I bet max will find some safe keys to try out.
Forget automobile keys, he should use an USB to enter cyberspace(cue next arc).
Or a clef, or a master key or a skeleton key.
genius about using USB. I hope zack does that :D
Also what would happen if he oppened his coat without a key, would we see his body?
Alright my favourite part of this page is Isaac staring out the window of the Activity Club room. What’s so interesting out there, Isaac?
Pthbbbb..Hahaha. :) Thanks for image of a giant time eel, head cocked to the side like a pigeon that now haunts me.
Unrelated, but if Isaac’s strong enough to beat both Isabel and Ed, why didn’t Mr. Spender let him investigate in chapter 1?
They sort of treat him like the underdog, so they probably don’t consider him to do anything really.
Or it could be *because* Isaac is too strong. And his powers are external. (And hard to control…)
Mr. Spender probably didn’t want him to accidentally cause any property damage to the school.
Which could be a large part of Isaac’s angst, come to think of it. Imagine having all that immense power bottled up inside you, yet not getting to use it because it’s too conspicuous and might cause too much destruction. And because this makes you a liability to the rest of the group, you’re treated like the “useless” member.
Maybe you just cant use weather powers inside?
Are we gonna get some Isaac backstory from the D-man?
I think we’re gonna get a lecture about being too smarmy.
Hey, I wonder what would happen if Sora meets Doorman and used a Keyblade in Doorman’s face…
If you shoved car keys in Doorman’s face, would he get turned on?
You know that would be awesome if Doorman became a car at one point.
so about a few pages back
Did Isaac know about the Sphinx’s power and knew he was safe because the Sphinx messed up, or would he have went and gotten killed if the Sphinx stated his conditions properly?
‘Oh, please. Young Master is my rapper name.’ PFT. Since when are you a rapper, Max? XDD
has anyone seen G0vnah? where’d he go?
First Connors was late, now G0vnah’s gone? The regulars are being… Doornapped *looks at Doorman in a suspicious way* (see what I did there?)
No but seriously, where is the guy?
I noticed that too. Maybe he’ll show up when Johnny turns up again.
They’re probably very slowly digesting as we speak.
Yeah where is G0vnah? :/
Sticking car keys in there would trigger his transformer mode.
Spectralbots! Transform and Rock Out!
Will they wage their battle to defeat the evil forces of Spiritepticons?
Yes. For…they have THE TOUCH!
lol XD I feel so special, you guys.
I’ve not been doornapped, just working on a ton of stuff and not having time to comment. That, and I’m in the middle of Kansas, enjoying HAVING NO SCHOOL DUE TO WEATHER FOR THE PAST TWO AND A HALF DAYS (not counting Sunday and Saturday, of course) AND TODAY GOT CANCELLED TOO! :D
Also, yeah. I’m loving Doorman’s portal skillz. They’re pretty cool. B)
But you do have giant sea lizards. At least that’s something to be thankful for.
Did you meet Dorothy in that weather?
Gotta say I’m really loving the foreshortening in those bottom panels, Zack. I’ve never been able to pull it off, but I love the effect.
Who else would want to get the doorman to stand where you could jump into him and come flying out of a door really fast like in Portal?
let’s test that :D
So, There’s the spirit in Isabel’s book. And there’s the Sphinx. And now Doorman. Any reason you’re introducing several red-aura spirits so early in the story, Zack? ;)
Does that door nob have a brother?
Who wants to bet that he’s going to call him Maxwell or Maximillion
Zack has a new Gravatar!
Je vous remercie, capitaine évident. -_-
translation: Thank you, captain obvious -_-
And his Ginger-fro is missing!
No! The Ginger-fro! NOOOOOO!
but he still has a confused look on his face.
Almost like “How’d my hair get cut while I wasn’t looking?”
Gosh I love this :D
Is it possible to get like posters or things? I would love to get a drawing of like Isaac or Isabel, and daaaayum would I pay handsomely.
well, as handsomely as a half broke teen can afford.
Or at least some computer wallpapers.
teeny tiny question here zack: taking out the time in between, about how long does it take you to draw a page?
You had his curiosity, now you’ll have his attention
argh it’s midnight here, how long does it take Zack to upload the pages??
rereading for the billionth time and now 97% sure Max’s shadow doesn’t move from panels 4 to 6. Was this on accident or masterful foreshadowing for the next page????
“I have gone through him before, Max. If what you said was true, you and everyone you know would _already_ be on his inside, so what difference would it make to go through him again?”
I have now said “it helps that I am not people” multiple times now. Because of this comic.
Also I read Doorman in my ‘mad scientist’ voice: mostly calm, but with weird inflection.
