    Is that Sailor Moon dog character standing outside because of the evacuation? As always, great art and a lot of extra details.

      Nah, this was in ‘Smoker’s Alley’ before that, in the little nook near the pool.
      Door was by the bottom of the escalators.

      I’m not so sure she’s a dog. I see twin stripes on her wide fluffy tail. That tells me shes a skunk. On the other hand, her muzzle looks like a fox muzzle. Maybe she’s half and half.

      • TANAG

        I seem to recall Mandy drawing a few skunk characters like that, so her muzzle is probably just her style.

          I now think it might be a skunk. I Googled different skunk colors and saw they can range from pitch-black to light tan, so this might be a different breed.

        • Glenn
          Glenn

          Maybe. I know that Max Blackrabbit draws Zig Zag with a relatively long muzzle, too.

        • Mandy

          Skunk, yep. Their faces look pretty long from the side to me, but I’m also certainly prone to stylizing and fudging details because I just like how they look! (see: all tails are fluffy tails)

          • Glenn
            Glenn

            Mandy, if you like skunks with fluffy tails, you should look at Eric Schwartz’s version of Zig Zag. Now SHE’S got a fluffy tail. It looks like it’s wider than she is.

      • IBTYComics

        My last guess for this is Brown Skunk.

    Fox, you dog. LOL. I can’t say as I blame you. If I see the wind blowing a skirt up, I believe it’s something worth looking into.

    BTW, Mandy, with my eyesight, I’m glad that you’ve enlarged the panels a bit. It was getting to the point that even with my laptop’s screen 6″ from my face, I was having a hard time seeing. (I think I need new glasses.)

      Why not just press ctrl-plus?

      • Glenn
        Glenn

        I didn’t know about the Ctrl-+ enlarging the comic. Maybe I accidentally did that and that enlarged the comic for me.

        • Stephen

          Ctrl-0 to make it normal.

          • Glenn
            Glenn

            Okay. Appreciate the help there.

      • Glenn
        Glenn

        I just tried the ctrl-minus and everything got smaller. So, I guess I must have accidentally enlarged it. Thanks for the information.

          Ctrl-plus is the hotkey for larger, Ctrl-minus is smaller, I think up to a factor of two in either direction (so 50% or 200%). If you want to zero back to 100%, do Ctrl-zero.

          • Glenn
            Glenn

            Thanks. I’ll try that. When you say, “ctrl-zero”, you actually mean, “ctrl-0”, right?

    • Mandy

      I did make them larger!
      Recently I started drawing my comics on 11×17 instead of 9×12 sheets, and decided to change the site layout a bit to accommodate larger images online too.
      I’m glad you’re liking the change!

      • Glenn
        Glenn

        Like I said, thanks Mandy. My eyesight is horrid-ble. So, making the comic larger is a real big help for those like me. Thanks again.

    Ah, well. Some years ago the guys at a rival game company thought I looked strange and exotic (I’m Cherokee) and based a character on me. Then they had the idea of dressing me as the character at trade shows. They had the armor built for me, full plate over a mail jacket with all appropriate leather and cloth layers on the inside. 112 lbs altogether compared to my own 140 – fortunately a lifetime training in Kyokushin, Kendo and Iaido left me able to carry it. It was murderously hot, this was never in the winter, and they wanted me to stay with their display all day. They did provide these neat cooling fans taken from professional racing that draws air over dry ice and through tubes they could slide inside my armor. It was my introduction to ‘fan service’!

    To make matters worse, I had very long, dense hair that was always catching in the pieces – and I had to use a temporary dye that turned my black hair to pure white. At least they let me keep the armor, which cost them 22,000 US!

      Your statement about “fan service” reminds me of a comic by Tom Fischbach, creator of “Two Kinds”, I saw on Deviant Art. It’s called “Freefall Fan Service”. If you haven’t seen it, you should take a look. Tom’s DA page is called Twokinds.

          Yeah, that one’s okay. But, I was referring to the one that Tom Fischbach did on his Deviant Art page. It shows Florence working on a tabletop fan and turning it on. It then rips the top of her yellow uniform off. A few of the yellow pieces are strategically placed, if you know what I mean.

          • Uncle Bilbo

            I did my own version about 4 years ago. A couple of people I know were working at Neopets at that time, and I drew a ‘fan service’ of their character Jhudora the Dark Faerie. There was deliberately nothing sexy about as part of the joke – it was just Jhudora sitting on the floor surrounded by tools while she oiled her oscillating fan.

          • Glenn
            Glenn

            I guess Tom’s drawing was fan service about someone (Florence) performing fan service. I’ll tell you what, when Florence got through, that fan worked GOOD.

            Thank you. I always appreciate a logical explanation to things like this. I just KNEW there had to be a reason. LOL.

        It was actually an NPC character design for the Square Enix Valkyrie Profile series starting with Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria. Being Native American with Paedogenesis, I have rather elvish, childlike features and large eyes with a Native American/Asian shape. I’m sometimes mistaken for a girl (I have a waist-length pony-tail) and I still look like I’m in my late teens. I’ve been snagged to model for several game and animation characters or races. In real life I can do a scary-accurate cosplay of the Avatar Korra without makeup or a wig – I even have her mouth and nose.

          So now ya gotta marry someone that looks like Asami?
          I hated Fox Mulder all through high school. Now I dress like him (unrelated) and married a red head. *shrug*
          Oh, right. And drive a cop car.

          • Uncle Bilbo
            Uncle Bilbo

            I actually did marry a Mescalero Apache veterinarian who does look a bit like a shorter, darker version of Asami. And we have a kid who looks and sounds just like a younger version of Iris from Pokemon. But I don’t ride a giant white hound or hang out with fire ferrets, although I do ride a Belgian and we have a deaf grey fox we rescued. No cop car, although the East Mesa Veterinary Rescue Hummer does have emergency lights and siren.

          I read a couple of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs about someone that was supposed to be Geronimo’s adopted son. (I know it was poetic license.) I read Geronimo’s autobiography and ERB had to have read it because he used a lot of the things in that book in his story’s. I was much impressed with Geronimo’s story and the books by ERB and I’m not much of a western fan.

          • Uncle Bilbo
            Uncle Bilbo

            Geronimo is a distant In-law of mine – how scary is that? And my Lady Vet is also a seventh generation Apache shaman. Although I’m only Apache by adoption, her grandfather selected me to replace him as the tribe’s Kha’diyin, the Shaman of the Ceremonies, so I’ve been learning all things Apache for the last few years.

            On my own side, my last name Blackfox indicates that I’m a direct descendant of Enoli (Black Fox), one of the last great Cherokee War Chiefs. Indicates, not proves, mind you!

          • Glenn
            Glenn

            Cool. I’ve always been fascinated by the great Indian/Native American war chiefs, most of whom were never actually defeated but lost only through attrition. In the books I mentioned, Geronimo always said he wasn’t at war with the United States; he said he was at war with the Mexicans because of the things they did to his family. I’ve been told that, because my family came from North Carolina, I had Cherokee blood but my grandfather always said it wasn’t true. So, I don’t know. (I believe most Americans who can trace their ancestry here to at least five generations back have at least one Native American ancestor.)

    gotta hand it to her though, thats a practically long skirt and not a tiny inadequate one…. perhaps putting small weights in the edge?

      Aww, now there’s nothing wrong with a man in a kilt…or a skirt. I give you Sailor Bubba and Sailor Freddy Mercury.

      Though in weather like that, it must be absolute murder on the lower half to be wearing a skirt of any length.
