Skirmish has a high dexterity, but they didn't address Skirmish's other high stat: intellect! Quick and thinking! Quick thinking!

This page took more time but boy am I glad on how it came out. Panel 5 in particular with the foreshortened arm+sword made my day when I actually drew it right. I love the blade sewn scar in the wall and the over-the-top arrow vault onto the RMV sign. Aughhhhh I'm so happy with this page! xD

In other news, Alignment has 100 subscribers! Wow! Holy cannoli frijoles! I definitely need to think of something to do for this milestone! I think its fun to do something different each milestone. Maybe a mass Q&A thing where everyone gets one question answered, be it me or a character? Hmm... ideas ideas...

Also, I'm going to the Boston ComicCon this Saturday! I'll be wearing my Alignment shirt while being lost and wandering aimlessly! My comic teacher will be there, Jack Purcell, and I think I'll print out a few pages of Chapter 2 to show em'. This page most likely being one of them!

And finally, I'll be dropping down to one page a week for the month of August *cough* (as if I was actually following my bi-weekly updates before) *cough*. I need to build a small buffer for when I go to college this fall, so I'll be storing surplus pages to use then when needed. But! I'll post some Alignment artwork on the would-be second update day, and that starts this week! It will be a Tuesday and Friday schedule, with Tuesday being a page and Friday being an extra art thing!

As always, vote on TWC to see a Re-Bubbled panel!



Whoa, lots of text today. I'm a real chatter box in this... uhh... box. Thanks for reading!

Ahaa! Thanks! I love it too. My only self-critique would be to tweak the word placement somehow to make the "FWOOOM" better synergize with the flow of the page. Other than that, I've surprised myself with how it turned out!

Looks great!

Buffer comics, we all need those, I clearly don't have any, that's why I'm a month behind.

Buffer is hard to keep! It feels like when you let one go, they all go!

5 is amazing, no doubt, but I love 5 and 6 together. They're so dynamic. I love love love love them!

Go Skirmish go!! *starts waving pom poms around*

Thanks, Rinkel! At least through the 4th wall Skirmish has people rooting for him!

Great sense of action here. You really feel the excitement of Skrimish jumping about.

Thanks, man! I really like drawing action scenes, but not many have been called for until now! Chapter 2 will definitely have a lot of these!

If the sign, and his evasion is a hint, he will become a rouge.

Talking about signs, I love the sign's text in the second to last panel.

I love this page. Amazing work.

Haha! I'm glad you caught that second sign text. Sometimes I wonder if I make those little things a bit too little to read! xD

Nope. No hidden foreshadowing here. Nuh-uh. Move along folks.

Love the stones flying about in the 5th panel, but the air time and landing for Skrimish is even more awesome. Now will we see a rogues evasive skills while running down the hall way or will he vanish. Wonder who the guardian of the hallway is. Because fighting in the hallway is forbidden.

Thanks! I love visceral combat with stuff breaking and things flying about. Those stones and Skirmish jumping around really nailed what I wanted this page to look like!

You're right, both parties are breaking rules now! No fighting, no monsters. Whoever gets caught first...

Skirmish may not be a fighter or ranger, but he will be a NINJA!

That settles it. Skirmish is clearly a rogue. And a very good one, too.

I can't help thinking that this won't end well for the adventurers. They did just break a clearly posted rule, and with Goredamn getting ready to become a wizard...
