Re: 1190: "Time"

Will it stay white forever once faded?

It's amazing that Blitzgirl can make so much progress while taking the time to create signposts, read all the haikus, and even make haikus herself.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Lately I've been going back and forth between, "WHY IS TIME FADING!!!! WHERE DID LAPETITE GO!!!!" and, "There's no reason to worry. Time's just going to fade back in." I'm sure I can handle much more of this. Interestingly enough, I actually like the change of pace the fading ha...

Current colour change trend. Going up in steps of 3 now for the last few newpix. I don't get it. 100 frames of nothing except slight color changes? That's more than a tenth of the comic. This has to be the lead up to some hilarious joke. I actually like the change of pace. All I wish for is that Ti...

Re: 1190: "Time"

If It is the end of Time then I don't want to Wait for It, because I don't want it to happen. Waiting has brought us to newpic after newpic, which is good, but eventually it will take us to the lastpic, which will be sad. In a way, this is like life and death. Except that we.'ll all be still alive....
