Seems like it. I generally update around noon-ish on Sunday but you are often one of the first to comment. Merry Christmas!

LOVE your comic - the interactive format is pretty much revolutionary - I love getting a weekly update that includes more that just one page's worth of panels on one digital page - great comic - can't wait to see where it goes next :D

I love Bill Paxton ever since Aliens. My favorite quote from him as Private William Hudson (aliens are about to attack):
"That's it, man. Game over, man! Game over! What the fuck are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?
Lol. Great stuff.
I also find it interesting how you wait to define the facial expression in your characters until the finished stage.
Personally, I like to capture facial expressions early on as a part of the overall pose of the character.

Yeah he's definitely one of the more quotable characters from Aliens, I've enjoyed all his other work too.
I generally do the expressions last, as I pull from an expression chart I have for each character, unless it requires something very specific for the scene.

Argh, who to vote for?

I absolutely love Mackie. We haven't seen anywhere near enough of her, and she could answer a few questions about Galvin; all the Ask Xs so far have been Vinnie's friends.

Still, I feel like BG+S are a crazy, larger-than-life duo who you can really play around with. That makes me think they'll be more fun for you to write—and, thus, more fun for us to read. ;) They probably have a bigger picture of the world at large, which could make for a really interesting perspective.

Shunsuke is really full of himself, which could be fun. Gogol and Benten are really interesting too; I'd love to see more of Gogol's perspective on the world, especially.

Decisions, decisions!

The segments have been really enjoyable for me to produce regardless of which character, gives me a chance to shed some light on the secondary characters that don't get much time in the spotlight.

Merry Christmas!

I did have a question for Vinnie, I dont remember if this was answered before or not.

Vinnie, you seem a little sad and alone a lot of the time, do you have any family that you are close to, or are you out in the world, going day by on your own (aside from Galvin, Galena, and Fridge)?
Notos 22nd Dec 2014, 3:47 PM edit delete reply
I most likely wont do Ask segments for the main characters, unless there is a high demand for them.
This question is covered in an earlier chapter, 2 or 3. Vinnie has no family in the city as his parents became autonoms as soon as he was of legal age to be left alone. After college, paying the bills took priority over having DLC for a social life so he became a shut-in for a couple of years, barely staying in contact with the Hot Legs gang.

Anyone else notice there's no 'Winter Hiatus Package 05'?
Notos 22nd Dec 2014, 3:44 PM edit delete reply
Probably just a mistake in naming them, I'm eventually going to just tuck them all away in their own section, not terribly concerned about their order.

The one I'm really wishing I could cross-examine right now is Galvins dad.

Of course that would require creative use of an Ouiji board.

So my vote goes to Mackie!
