first sorry this page is late, it was rather complex to put together starting with the 14 different figures. I might also have been a bit concerned with making sure my own avatar looked right (but I need sleep so it will have to do). To make it up you you guys I also posted the three pages I redrew (pages 1, 2 & 3). they are back in the beginning and the old ones are moved up to right behind page 66 let there be Robin if you want to see what they use to look like.

Now about this page. I already had this page planed out before I changed the plot adding an extra flash back (the one that started on page 52 where have you been) I probably should have seen it coming from the very beginning, but once it was started there wasn't really any funny way to force robin to re in act it the same way the second time around. The rest was pretty close, but this page needed to be shown both ways. I decided to go with two coloums, and have arrows to let you know not to read it the normal left to right. I think it could still make a fair amount of sense that way, but I just pulled two all nighters in a row so who knows. Let me know what you think about form, all comments on the art or content of the page will still be answered but they will be an extra 10% snarky.


I thought i would add some links before i take my nap (I say nap because i have to get up and work on another page before tomorrow morning).
Flash back A starts on 54 What they say although it is talked about on the two pages before that.
Flash back 1 starts 61 stay at home physicists and is only talked about one page ahead.
to clarify the sequence of events if you don't want to get too sticky with time travel theory crafting.
flash back 1 happened first when no one was watching. since no one was watching we had to have flash back A. in the middle of flash back A flash back 1 happened again. then flash back 1 ended. then go back to the girls on the bus (still fb A). then there is this page (the last of fb A) which shows both the stuff that happened the first time and the stuff in fb A. since fb A isn't really a true flashback but just the same people doing the same things (kind of). if anyone is still confused let me know and i can spew some techno babble in your general direction.

I came up with it when i was thinking for a good title for the page and just had to have Robin say it then. while sometimes coming up with a witty title is a pain all the practice appears to be paying off.

I knew this scene would be coming soon when you changed your comments avatar. I love D'Avatars confused look 'this time'

Inquiring minds want to know, does what happens to someones avatar effect them in any way? Will we get to see the car chase Robin inevitably started trying to catch the bus? Why isn't charity helping? Did she forget her plethora of incapacitating devices at the apartment?[I know she has them, sweet and innocent indeed...indeed]
Edit: I mean punching D'Avatar, not necessarily this alibiing of the script upon disembarking from the bus

I wondered if anyone caught me changeling my comment avatar or not.
all the details of how avatars work will eventually be dealt with in the comic but your question isn't that big of a spoiler so ill answer it here. Robin will be disappointed to learn that the avatars are not connected to their originals after they are created. some have knowledge of or from their originals but it is limited by what i know. an avatar of my sister for example would have the memories that i think my sister would have. a stranger's avatar would have less specific memories.
I will see what i can do about a car chase, but be prepared to wait a bit i plan to put him on a bus for a while.
Robin did a good job not letting on exactly what she had planed so the director wouldn't be able to stop her. that also meant that charity was caught by surprise. while she was only half as surprised as mes (or what ever the plural for I is) I don't think she would want to get her hands dirty for no tangible gain in helping Robin if she was able to react fast enough.

You're getting pretty good with the tablet. That page confused me a little bit. I get the before and after, but I didn't get the humor in it. Still enjoying the comic, though. :D

I'm glad the format didn't confuse you. as for the humor, i was trying to do a lot of things with this page so i didn't stress the humor as much. don't worry there will be more witty banter tomorrow.

Hey, you promised snarky! Also, shouldn't an avatar of you have been prepared for character revenge like that by now? It kinda makes you look incompetent (just a lot).

* takes script for the next chapter and throws it into the wind.
you want to see him get revenge fine, but after he is done toying with Robin and destroys the comic know that you asked for it.

Wait are you saying that you were startled because you were expecting snarky and something different happened? you should have known the director was unreliable. there is no excuse for expecting him to follow a plan even for the few seconds it took for Robin to punch him. hmm i seemed to have transitioned perfectly from your mistake the the avatar's. since you're both on the same side i guess that means you we're right ie your both wrong.

I'm saying the guy representing the author should have expected a punch in the face for the bus and the bad joke. And likely a boot to head as well.
