Montage time, Fridge and Vinnie's college, dorm room band makes a reunion! Could this be the start of something big?
Hope the fades in the montage don't chug too hard, Flash has difficulty with alpha fades it seems, but it just didn't look right without em!
If you want to play one of the most underrated, overlooked gems on the NES give Metal Storm a try, you won't be disappointed!
Enjoy!

So the synth metal on the human body isn't all metal? It still shapes and looks loose enough like skin.or am I over thinking? . m.
ConnorElzaim 27th Oct 2013, 8:07 AM edit delete reply
Not to mention that pretty sizeable bulge he's sporting. I mean, he could have a cod-piece for appearances, but still makes one wonder. X3

Snyth parts aren't metal, they are more of a hard rubber 'alloy'. They would have the 'hardness' of a car tire, only with smoother, less 'sticky' surface. I imagine if they were to become popular alternatives to flesh and blood parts in this setting they would have to be close in how they feel, otherwise nobody would want em!

you story is wonderful this synth parts reminds me somewhat the automail technology on FMA, by any chance do you like that anime/manga? i see you have classical tastes in anime mostly, but maybe any modern one

He wasn't exaggerating in Chapter 2 when he said 'fully synth'!
Buster 27th Oct 2013, 6:15 AM edit delete reply
Uh oh. 4 hours of sleep is less than bueno, especially for a job like his. I hope this music thing goes well.

I like synth and electronica music. This is basically just a random observation as we can only assume what kind of song he recorded :P I'm rooting for you, Vinnie!

Yeah it's the kind of stuff he produces, it's no surprise I've been on a big 80's kick lately, and that includes synth and new wave synth music, so I imagine that is exactly the kind of stuff they are making.

im starting to see Fridge more charming and i love that coloring in his chest and abdomen with the skull, im curious i suppose even his body is synth does he keep any internal organs? i was woindering about his brain.
Notos 27th Oct 2013, 3:11 PM edit delete reply
Notos
All internal organs are synth, everything. I think of it how in real life we can currently replace a pretty complex organ like the heart, imagine 300, 400 years down the line. Though I'm gonna say his brain is still 'flesh and blood', it's hard to conceive how that can be replicated.
Timet 15th Feb 2014, 7:16 PM edit delete reply
His brain could have been downloaded and put into a microprocessor in his head. Basically something similar to GLaDoS in Portal... though that would probably mean he would have to run regular diagnostic checks I guess...

The montage came out great, the fades were an excellent touch.

Vinnie is still pretty young, so I imagine he may be a little tired, but he can get through the day fine. (This changes all kinds when you get older though...god, how it changes.)

Yeah I'm getting to that stage, if I don't get my sleep the day is pretty much a write-off.
Danny Zephronic 27th Oct 2013, 1:07 PM edit delete reply
I don't know how you do it man

I'm not into chubby guys but more and more I find Vinnie to be one of the most attractive fictional characters I've see

I was pretty excited to draw a synth-babe poster on his wall, and it seemed sac religious to not make it a shout out to Sorayama.
Rauron 27th Oct 2013, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
Oh my gooosh, these two cuties! Vinnie is going to be pretty great when he finally gains some confidence, though I hope the price isn't too steep. Fridge is pretty charming, surprisingly, and certainly seems to have some *cough* impressive assets.

When you can pick and choose what parts you want for your synth body he spared no expense.

Those were fun, I didn't know what other way to visually show it was a working fan/AC unit, they seem to do the trick

i did but was hoping it was his first preference and the other men but dident hurt to ask lol
Damaratus 27th Oct 2013, 11:12 PM edit delete reply
So Fridge ends up wearing less over the night too. Does he still feel hot and cold and become uncomfortable with their extremes? Or is his disrobing just kind of a throwback to when he was more fleshy?
Notos 28th Oct 2013, 4:21 AM edit delete reply
Notos
Synth body parts are sensitive to heat and cold like flesh and blood is, so yes. And it was also an excuse to show off his color scheme.

Almost forgot to mention the fade in panel 1 really added to the feel of the hours "blurring" together to me

It is a reference to the original Macross anime, his current choice of color scheme is the same as one 'mech' from that series.

I'm super excited for Vinnie and I love how the page turned out. Fridge is just a nice gut with a nicer bod :D I'm rooting for ya Vinnie :)

Some really cool animations in this one, like the fan streamers. Everything about your comic's presentation and style is so smooth.

For a minute I was starting to think Fridge was putting the moves on Vinnie, what with the disappearing clothing and all, but the poster and the Synth Sluts mag left out (hey, even synth guys have needs!) It's looking like fridge's interest is strictly platonic... if a bit overbearing...
Notos 29th Oct 2013, 1:03 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Yeah, Vinnie and Fridge are just bro's, and Fridge is the type without much modesty, the friend with the 'expensive car' who always wants to show it off.
Turbocharge1000 30th Oct 2013, 12:20 AM edit delete reply
i wonder if a fully synth body has adjustable strength stuff...fridge might have to show off some time to his loyal comic viewers...
Notos 30th Oct 2013, 1:10 PM edit delete reply
Notos
I touch on that in later chapters, but in short it does, to and extent. People with new synth limbs or bodies have to train themselves to get used to them.

I don't know how to say how I feel when I see the words Hcc in your comic cause its the name of my collage I go to lol...;;

I'm curious... what happens if they don't have any money left on this comm thing and still talk to others? The police comes and takes them to jail? :P And how are the talking rules in there? :>
Notos 14th Apr 2014, 1:09 PM edit delete reply
Notos
I most often describe the consequences as being similar to having unpaid traffic tickets; you'll get several warnings, but yes eventually you'll get an arrest warrant and put in jail. I imagine the talking rules and punishment in jail would be similar to any other rules in -prison-, which is most likely beat downs or solitary if you don't follow them.
