    I am glad you said that because I missed the joke. His pants in the previous comic are so small that I didn't notice that he was not wearing them in the last panel of this comic.
    The shirt and shoes panels take on a second meaning when you notice that he is wearing only underwear.

    At last it's there - and it more than meets expectations.

    Probably there are some dreams most of us have dreamt at least once... :)

  • ahdokahdok Figment of your imagination Registered User regular
    So... is this comic is an allegory for the release of the comic itself? for comics, art and other junk.

    @AHDOK Yes, I think so. Most of the kids look in Malachis eyes, don't they? So, zerzhul is right: "pfft, who needs pants?"

    Some people look better in their tighty whiteys. Congratulations on all of your successes. Keep up the great work and your pants!

  • spool32spool32 Contrary Library Registered User regular
    hahaha, I sense a double meaning to this strip as the first one of the launch... :)

    How did he get his shoes back from Proto Kid? Notice that this is the first time he is wearing shoes again after that strip.

    My tiny weak internet connection cannot handle 1.5MB comic strips! Could you upload them slightly more compressed?

    You'll probably just have to download the comics to your computer. What speed is your connection?

    Also I did a quick experiment in GIMP2. I downloaded the comic from the website and imported it into GIMP. I exported it on different levels of JPEG quality settings. The lower limit of acceptable quality is at about a quality setting of 90. Any lower and you get visible artefacts in your image. The quality setting of 90 gives you an image of 582KB. So this may be a possible solution. Let me know what you think Fuji. PS: I'm not going to upload my experiment's results for various reasons, but you can try for yourself as GIMP is free. Just google it.

    I have been looking for hours and have not been able to find the 'weedonwantcha' hidden away in the drawings. I am sure it is just my contacts giving me problems.

    Yes, this is what I want.

    There's the new readers pageon the website, it gives a brief explanation of the premise and a summary of the three main characters. Other than that there have only been 7 comics so far so it shouldn't be too hard to catch up with the awesomeness

  • GaslightGaslight Registered User regular
    If you just read the comics it isn't entirely clear that Weedonwantcha is a camp where parents literally just abandon their kids and never come back, it's just sort of very bleak and surreal.

    Not that it isn't bleak and surreal once you read the new readers page and find that out, it just makes the bleakness and surrealism more pronounced. I personally am 100% on board with this premise. Can't wait to learn more about this place and see the kind of dangers/challenges the kids have to deal with. In my fantasy world I can see this becoming an animated cartoon on TV; it may be too dark for kids (although stuff like Adventure Time is blazing a trail), but I can see it on Adult Swim or a similar programming block.

    Also think it would make a kickass video game. Something like Bully, in the woods, with less adults and a lot more despair.

    Yes, that's true. But it's probably not due to the contacts. I'm using normal glasses (for the elderly poor) and can't find them, neither. Maybe it's just that most of the letters "a-d-i-k-s" are not part of "weedontwantcha", but who can tell for sure. ;)

    [@admins: Please make the "quote" function available from the "native" discussion forum on - having to change to the penny arcade forums to do so is a real pain in the "tighty whiteys"]

    The reader's page is good, but they really should have started the comic with the last kid getting abandoned at the camp rather than 4 months in, but ohh well the art is fantastic and I agree that the world is interesting going forward.

    Interesting that this panel has WAY more views than all of the others. Clearly this was shared more to spread the motivational message. Interesting stuff. Also I had completely missed that Malachi had forgotten to put on his pants. Thanks zerzhul for pointing that out. Makes this even more glorious.

    Okay, this artist is subtle and sly. You've got a reader.

    Like 'Choose Your Own Adventure's? Play Chimerical, over at my humble webspace. Or, you know, read some of my serial stories.

    looking at the seventh panel, is that a foreshadow of some of the back story that is going to happen?

  • briguybriguy Registered User regular
    I have recurring fear of this happening to me. Really. I have had to ask myself: am I wearing pants?
