0321 brella: i'll bet nick is just sitting there laughing mysteriously as we speak
0322 yuuhy: zoe looked older to me too but it could be art evolution
0323 alison: i thought zoe looked older, yeah.
0324 yuuhy: it has been 22 months?
0325 brella: well gribbs wasn't but that could be due to the bullet wound in his skull
0326 upguntha: he did it while telling us we'll never see her again
0327 beth: yeah thats my other thought was it was just the art
0328 macey: zoe died(?) in june 2012 if i recall
0329 macey: joe's art has changed a lot
0330 emma: idk she seemed the same age to me, just different clothes

0351 upguntha: HolowZoe
0352 captainetienne entered the room
0353 ivioss: So, Nick, would you die under torture rather than give anything away?
0354 yuuhy: omg
0355 macey: oh man i just realized joe must have been so excited to draw zoe again
0356 brella: i do wonder if everything we saw in morocco was still through ike's perspective
0357 guest-249568 changed nickname to captainetienne
0358 emma: i'm so excited that he's drawing zoe again
0359 brella: so did he see zoe, too

0362 upguntha: his most requested comish is back

0364 beth: zoe looks so good tho
0365 hannah: zoe always looks good
0366 darrrrkvengance: +1 hannah
0367 brella: she looks EXCELLENT
0368 macey: imagine ike running back to his dorm covered in blood yelling "ZOES ALIVE"
0369 macey: theyd just assume he finally lost it
0370 brella: nothing like a little sun to repair a bullet wound
0371 upguntha: especially when she's gonna murder you
0372 brella: GOD
0373 selfibadnxscom entered the room
0374 yuuhy: hunter would cry
0375 jess_camacho left the room

0383 ivioss: Hunter would not cry.
0384 brella: don't talk to me about hunter finding out i will dig a hole and bury myself
0385 guest-249595 changed nickname to julienotrobin
0386 darrrrkvengance: maybe Akiko's dance changed teh game?
0387 guest-249607 entered the room
0388 beth: i really need casey to find out but i also havent gotten casey reacting to her death so
0389 guest-249607 left the room
0390 beth: but oh no hunter
0391 alison: I figure that if Zoe was gone because she knew too much, her return is going to mean big
0392 alison: reveals soon.
0393 upguntha: Zoe and Irina i the same rom
0394 beth: trueeee
0395 yuuhy: RIGHT
0396 upguntha: go!!!
0397 yuuhy: I'm so excited
0398 emma: i just need reveals
0399 brella: my assumption is that casey resetting the timeline might have reset zoe's death but
0400 yuuhy: I'm shaking
0401 brella: then why did we see her body
0402 macey: it makes sense that zoe would be back and not anyone else really
0403 brella: SO MANY REVEALS
0404 yuuhy: friends you don't know how much I think about zoe theories
0405 hannah: reveals in morning glories though
0406 macey: like hisao, his stuff is mostly done- what's not can be taken by jun
0407 hannah: that sounds unholy
0408 alison: it wasn't necessarily confirmed to be her.
0409 macey: but zoe has a lot to handle
0410 brella: yeah we'll get reveals in probably
0411 brella: 100 years
0412 beth: im going back to my theory about how her shirt is red in the morgue but white before
0413 upguntha: Nickis Caleb the lond boy from the pciture?
0414 beth: and that could be significant
0415 brella: i just assumed her shirt was red because of all the blood
0416 beth: that was my other thought but its too sad
0417 macey: god if caleb is blond boy all our theories on david go forty steps back
0418 brella: that probably came out of her. exploding chest wound
0419 beth: BRELLA
0420 brella: BETH
0421 guest-249586 changed nickname to selfibadnxscom
0422 upguntha: lol lol

0431 brella: damn you, caleb, and your fashionable sweater vest
0432 yuuhy: he looks so much like the blond kid with his dorky smile

0434 brella: alison
0435 alison: Ohhhh.
0436 brella: to be david
0437 brella: ah yes
0438 brella: just when you think you might have an idea of what's going on in morning glories
0439 brella: ha. ha
0440 selfibadnxscom left the room
0441 ivioss: There is a theory of History that certain figures must appear sooner or later.
0442 hannah: wonder what david's been getting up to lately
0443 danhauge entered the room
0444 upguntha: he did cal Ab father instead of Sir like Walid did
0445 emma: but wasn't clarkson's son named david or do i have that backwards
0446 yuuhy: but we haven't seen baby walid and i refuse to believe they're not permanently attached
0447 guest-249646 changed nickname to danhauge
0448 alison: Clarkson's son is named David yeah
0449 macey: ok most important question

0453 maria1 entered the room
0454 guest-249649 changed nickname to maria1
0455 emma: they just needed to give him a motorcycle to complete the look
0456 macey: walids power is infinite pockets in his sweet leather jacket. mg solved
0457 brella: where did he even get a motorcycle
0458 beth: exactly walid is just swag
0459 maria1 left the room
0460 upguntha: they bought it from that kid

0470 brella: was that part of the curriculum at the camp
0471 yuuhy: the boys need to clean their room
0472 ivioss: Miss Richmond gave Walid money before sending him off
0473 brella: "children you must learn about faith and also how to drive motorcycles"
0474 upguntha: well he can prob own a motorcycle in Moroxco
0475 beth: i cant believe zoe isnt making them clean up around the place
0476 brella: ian would be terrible at driving motorcycles
0477 beth: their beds are so messy
0478 brella: so would fortunato he'd be too scared
0479 yuuhy: "can i show my motorcycle score to father abraham"
0480 macey: walid's gift is the power to be a hot biker
0481 macey: hes been training his whole life for this
0482 brella: zoe is probably making walid and caleb sleep on the floor
0483 brella: so she can have both mattresses
0484 upguntha: lmao ohhh Zoe
0485 emma: hey beth rmr what you said about two mattresses
0486 macey: ian driving a motorcycle is a great mental image thanks brella

0490 upguntha: Nick does Mis Richmond count as one of the 5 that escaped?
0491 beth: there is a dresser behind her. so couldnt there also be a bed there. that is nicer.
0492 yuuhy: zoe pbably has a proper king size bed in the other room
0493 ivioss: too bad Walid cannot time or location travel on his bike
0494 nick: should point out zoe's entourage is two good looking dudes, because of course
0495 beth: i want to believe that walid and caleb are sharing a mattress but
0496 brella: of course
0497 beth: some things never change
0498 yuuhy: i admit i screencapped almost every panel with walid
0499 macey: zoe knows where its AT

0515 macey: okay wait yeah. zoe probably wins. teen BOYS
0516 macey: but zoe wins all
0517 beth: exactly their hygiene is likely questionable
0518 nick: the dude we ref'ed for Walid is a stunner, i spent hours on that
0519 brella: walid is yuuhy's only light in this life
0520 emma: this is ike's issue and we're all walid-ing
0521 macey: nick didnt you do that for guillaume and tuna too...how much time have you spent looking
0522 macey: at models for this book

0525 guest-249496 left the room
0526 hannah: oh yeah ike's being tortured in a dungeon

0543 ivioss: @upguntha Needed that
0544 emma: what if ike knits his own scarves
0545 beth: thats beautiful
0546 brella: amazing.
0547 macey: poor fortunato would be so scandalized
0548 emma: macey you make it sound like tuna's never seen himself naked
0549 brella: he probably looks away from the mirror every time
0550 macey: he's fortunato he probably hasn't
0551 ivioss: Tuna is prissy just cause he prays

0685 lily: im not gunna make it to 18
0686 brella: okay yuuhy you can use your death-reversing powers to keep me around
0687 brella: PROBABLY, MACEY

0689 henrian: I kinda agree.
0690 yuuhy: hisao didn't make it to 17 so

0712 lily: same
0713 macey: brella i think hunter's good for a long while yet
0714 brella: don't worry lily, i am sure he is probably running late for his class somewhere
0715 julienotrobin: hisao was my fav
0716 julienotrobin: *weeps*
0717 macey: HANNAH AND ESI....I HAVE FAITH....they are together so andres is the disposable one

0730 macey: but yes in an ideal world all the av club kids grow old and have many grandkids
0731 ivioss: Do you have to kill a character every time a new one enters the story?
0732 emma: mama esi as actual mama
0733 emma: weeps
0734 brella: oh my god, andres would be the most ridiculous grandpa
0735 yuuhy: it seems like we usually get a death around the same time as an influx of characters
0736 upguntha: pretty boys are still alive
0737 beth: GRANDPA ANDRES
0738 macey: we just got really sad to really happy in a split second

0751 yuuhy: no it's ok i just have to never love again
0752 upguntha: this story is gonna end with a different cast i feel
0753 henrian: Zoe is back (or in back, or anything else) to kill everyone.
0754 beth: i open every new issue filled with terror in general
0755 brella: yeah upguntha watch all of the characters we know now die halfway through
0756 ivioss: I forgot about being free
0757 brella: and then get reincarnated into a new cast
0758 macey: i'm waiting for everyone to die at like #75 and for julie to take over as protag
0759 macey: calling it now

0777 hannah: ouch
0778 julienotrobin: ooowwwww
0779 emma: im blocking u hang on
0780 darrrrkvengance: i wonder if Julie is even in teh same universe
0781 brella: lol bye
0782 macey: best route in mg is don't ever know your parents. dont even MEET them
0783 macey: live as a forest child raised by wolves
0784 darrrrkvengance: or how she's gonna get into this story
0785 brella: dont even HAVE them
0786 ivioss: Julie is probably one of the future events which can be changed and no Julie
0787 macey: that is the only way to remain unharmed
0788 emma: dont have parents. be a clone. looks at ian
0789 beth: iM
0790 beth: oh ian
0791 yuuhy: everyone should just be ian
0792 beth: maybe everyone /is/ ian
0793 yuuhy: the solution to life's problems
0794 brella: everyone in the cast is just replaced w/ the ians
0795 upguntha: I don't think Ian is a clone
0796 macey: plot twist in issue #100, everyones skin peels off to reveal theyre all ians
0797 yuuhy: last page of 38
0798 beth: oh god picturing a world of ians is terrifying
0799 brella: maybe THATS the answer to the "who is ian" question
0800 brella: it's EVERYONE
0801 upguntha: I think he can multiply himself
0802 emma: wait no i didnt want to start this i take the ian comment back
0803 darrrrkvengance: i thought ian was obtained by Oliver Simon at some point, not necessarily cloned
0804 lily: even headmaster is ian
0805 darrrrkvengance: but maybe i missed an update
0806 hannah: you're ian, he's ian, i'm ian, are there any other ians i should know about
0807 upguntha: divided into different personalities
0808 brella: nice job emma
0809 henrian: don't fertilize the ovule.
0810 macey: i keep picturing ians gonna get the other ians to help him with akiko so that when she
0811 macey: wakes up shes just surrounded by ians.
0812 macey: it's her worst nightmare
0813 emma: but then akiko is also ian
0814 beth: oh god
0815 beth: OH GOD
0816 yuuhy: i'm crying please stop
0817 brella: i just keep imagining the ians as sounding like the seagulls from finding nemo
0818 emma: no escape from the storm inside
0819 brella: i'll be honest
0820 brella: just more sarcastic
0821 nick: have to run soon-- who has questions? try to answer as many as I can
0822 brella: SURROUNDED BY IANS. the meaning of terror
0823 nick: then a couple for you
0824 darrrrkvengance: Nick -- is Julie currently alive? in the same world as, say, Jade's brother?
0825 lily: is hunter gunna be in the next issue?
0826 yuuhy: oh! can you tell us what accents the faculty have?
0827 beth: will there be more zoe backstory soon?
0828 brella: whose idea was it to have the cover match 24's?
0829 emma: will we see more of the kids who escape with walid and caleb?
0830 ivioss: I asked already. Why only one piece of pizza. No way would I go to that school
0831 macey: why are their so many grown adults beating up minors in basements
0832 beth: will zoe go back to the academy?
0833 nick: @dark no easy answer there
0834 darrrrkvengance: lol, ivioss!
0835 yuuhy: then ivioss you are safe. congratulations.
0836 nick: @lily very briefly
0837 brella: (yessssssss)
0838 macey: gonna assume that's a one-panel closeup of his nose until it comes out
0839 beth: macey omg
0840 emma: hopefully attached to his face
0841 yuuhy: brella is going to make that nose panel her phone background
0842 beth: EMMA
0843 emma: not just lying around
0844 nick: @yuuhy lara is the only american-sounding one, lotta faux british going around
0845 darrrrkvengance: thanks for another amazing issue, Nick!
0846 lily: gribbs faking a british accent
0847 nick: @beth sure seems like we opened the door for that to happen again
0848 hannah: yes thank you!
0849 lily: while beating up ike
0850 macey: ...that's actually kind of hilarious
0851 yuuhy: _faux_ british wow
0853 julienotrobin: i missed the beginning so i don't know what questions were already asked mmmm
0854 darrrrkvengance: and please pass my regards along to Joe!
0855 macey: did lara just decide everyone was too pretencious
0856 henrian: YAY!
0857 brella: noses are very important to me yuuhy thank you
0858 nick: @brella that was me

0864 emma: somedayyyy
0865 lily: omg yes
0866 yuuhy: walebbb
0867 upguntha: no wonder they kept saying bloody in the begining of the series
0868 hannah: it's ironic because people at mga are literally bloody on a regular basis
0869 beth: ha. ha ha
0870 brella: they probably think they're being so funny
0871 lily: its a new fashion trend
0872 macey: so ike STILL is the most fashionable one of all
0873 yuuhy: WALID
0874 macey: walid is unfortunately not fashionable
0875 yuuhy: NO HE IS
0876 nick: now- HOW do you think Zoe is back?
0877 julienotrobin: is jade in the next issue? or zoe?
0878 emma: beth wished really hard
0879 yuuhy: abraham traveled back in time to before she died
0880 brella: i think abraham's either in the past and she hasn't died yet
0881 macey: my bet's on time travel.
0882 alison: I personally think that she was going to "kill" Hunter, something about death releases
0883 alison: them.
0884 hannah: yeah i'm going with time travel but really i have no idea
0885 yuuhy: or yeah it just takes place before she died
0886 beth: yeah i'm thinking some wonky time thing
0887 macey: not from abraham, but from zoe
0888 emma: but yah time travel
0889 alison: And her going after Hunter wasn't a bad thing
0890 brella: or casey's cylinder encounter reset her death
0891 hannah: i never know what's going on
0892 beth: similar to how abraham was killed but also alive
0893 hannah: ooh yeah
0894 julienotrobin: mmmm...maybe zoe time traveled. maybe there are multiple zoes like ians
0895 beth: but i also did wish really hard so
0896 philmaira: This might be a stretch, but was Gribs' head wrap supposed paralllel a Taqiyah?
0897 yuuhy: alison, i think so too but i don't think it equates to immortality or anything that would
0898 beth: how long was her return planned?
0899 yuuhy: have brought her back
0900 brella: i also wonder if the arc "fatih" idea had something to do with it
0901 alison: no, but I do think there's some kind of power enacted by dying.
0902 brella: since it was faith that enabled david to touch akiko
0903 darrrrkvengance: maybe she was killed in the future, so hasn't died yet?
0904 alison: that we just don't know yet.
0905 yuuhy: yeah, some kind of ascendance
0906 nick: @beth from the start, sorry for lying
0907 brella: when it should have just killed her right away
0908 brella: hmm
0909 henrian: Was she indeed dead?
0910 upguntha: Just line the no "powers"
0911 brella: oh my god
0912 beth: haha
0913 darrrrkvengance: maybe everyone at MGA is outside of time and death
0914 darrrrkvengance: in some way
0915 brella: maybe MGA is the island
0916 ike left the room
0917 brella: dun dun DUNNNN
0918 macey: brella you can't make lost jokes until youve watched it
0919 upguntha: Is the best 2 out of 3 the new reccuring phrase
0920 brella: i know...... i know
0921 emma: they fall asleep when travelling there so.,,,
0922 nick: haha, okay... gotta get back to work, all. very happy to have zoe back, glad you are, too.
0923 macey: hands you my complete series boxset
0924 beth: or theyre actually all dead the whole time so you cant actually die
0925 brella: but there's an island in lost, right, i didn't mishear that
0926 yuuhy: thanks nick!
0927 emma: thank you nick!!
0928 brella: we're SO HAPPY
0929 henrian: Because, assuming that dead is dead, it'd be unlikely for her to be really back.
0930 philmaira: @darkk 4th dimensional consicousness?
0931 macey: yes it's why they're lost
0932 henrian: Bah. )
0933 beth: thank you so much!!! this issue was incredible i'm so unbelievably happy!!

0961 emma: walid/caleb is real beth
0962 beth: but no it cant be zoe
0963 lily: there was tho (whispers w/c)

0965 yuuhy: I can't believe brella said i was sitting on a throne of lies
0966 beth: WALID/CALEB THO
0967 beth: but
0968 beth: YOU TOLD ME NOT TO READ IT YUUHY
0969 ivioss: You remember how Jade took the noose in class and how zoe says have faith?
0970 yuuhy: when nick fucking spencer KING OF LIES
0971 beth: but yes they are far guiltier of lying
0972 macey: beth i can think of a third
0973 macey: gay zoe
0974 beth: i'd be upset but i can't be bc zoe is alive
0975 beth: i just finger gunned
0976 lily: i almost cried i was so happy
0977 beth: sOON
0978 beth: it will be real. hopefully. maybe.
0979 yuuhy: hmm i'm starting to think zoe might _actually_ be bak
0980 ivioss: There may be a parallel between Jade and Zoe
0981 yuuhy: i'm starting to hope
0982 beth: there are so many possibilities
0983 hannah left the room
0984 upguntha: I was trying not to scream in the middle of Starbucks
0985 lily: i dont wanna get my hopes up but i rlly hope shes back
0986 yuuhy: because nick seemed to be implying that
0987 beth: oh dang we can know what's in the photo now
0988 ivioss: Jade ended up dream walking instead of dying
0989 yuuhy: but i've learned not to hope
0990 yuuhy: so oop there it goes
0991 darrrrkvengance: i haven't watched LOST either. is it worth it? i've heard mixed things
0992 upguntha: that photooooo
0993 beth: unless zoe doesn't remember the things she knew before?
0994 upguntha: maybe casey will see it when she goes looking for Hodge
0995 beth: or everything?
0996 brella: by the way has anyone gotten any new intel on the not-printer object
0997 beth: if some time replacement is involved idk
0998 henrian: It is interesting that Future Jade never mentioned Zoe.
0999 julienotrobin left the room
1000 emma: not printer object?
1001 ivioss: We never saw what happened to Jade in the classroom after she hung herself
1002 yuuhy: i'm pretty sure i know what the not-printer is
1003 upguntha: dishhhhh
1004 lily: imagine zoe trying to come back to school and everyone freaking out
1005 beth: i'm assuming that she goes unconscious or something and then they take her to nine?
1006 henrian: She asked about Ike, Hunter and Casey. But never mentioned Zoe and Jun.
1007 lily: and shes like wtf guys
1008 yuuhy: but i don't want to share in chat in case people want to figure it out themselves
1009 beth: (i just reread this issue quickly to warn someone about it)
1010 beth: well. jade and zoe were never very close.

1193 macey: abetterfuture
1194 abetterfuture: Was is confirmed this is a post-death appearance>

1221 brella: never mind. un-go for it
1222 yuuhy: akiko being the first
1223 emma: ascended i like that
1224 darrrrkvengance: but it was about the conversion of pain and suffering into physical energy
1225 beth: no
1226 abetterfuture: I think now is the time to start hoping Hisao comes back.
1227 yuuhy: yeah i'mma go with that third one

1242 macey: zoe does, too
1243 macey: if she's actually really back
1244 abetterfuture: How did last names come up in the discussion?
1245 darrrrkvengance: Abraham's charges certainly believe a sacrifice is always demanded
1246 guest-250339 entered the room
1247 macey: somebody asked what abrahams last name was
1248 emma: or she's already ascended but can travel? somehow. what am i saying
1249 abetterfuture: There's like, a lot of talk about them.
1250 yuuhy: revelation 8
1251 emma: i don't know how we didn't talk about the symbolism of the snakes in this issue
1252 darrrrkvengance: and i was thinking about how certain beings may be able to convert suffering into
1253 emma: snakes/serpent
1254 darrrrkvengance: spiritual energy
1255 yuuhy: i was really excited about that but there wasn't much to go on
1256 yuuhy: like he just hangs out with the snakes and leaves?
1257 macey: are there SERIOUSLY 13 chapters in revelation 8
1258 darrrrkvengance: like bodhisattvas in Buddhism or, obviously, Jesus.

1322 abetterfuture: Yeah, but I like that this is clearly a series he's telling for the story, not the money.

1332 ivioss: So I wonder if Nick will ever lie within in the comic itself and say next issue
1333 yuuhy: my store people started reading it~
1334 lily: my friends all laughed at the title they were like " lol morning glories"
1335 ivioss: that was a lie
1336 yuuhy: they're not caught up though
1337 brella: so often, so tired
1338 beth: i've made so many people read this series its absurd
1339 abetterfuture: I've found the year-long hardcovers are good for loaning and getting people hooked.
1340 brella: I HAVE TOO
1341 beth: its my reason to live
1342 francy: i force it on people
1343 macey: YES the hardcovers are so useful

1364 macey: but it'll be the first 38 issues apparently so. thats. like 1100 pages
1365 upguntha: when?
1366 yuuhy: yeah the book breaks are weird
1367 macey: YEAH i thought that was weird, you'd expect it to be every 25 for the seasons
1368 lily: like a giant book of all of them in one?
1369 roya left the room
1370 yuuhy: whenever they can get it together i guess
1371 macey: hasnt been solicited so idk when its out...probably same month as hc 3?
1372 ivioss: Omnibus had better come out just before Winter Soltice so I can get it as a present
1373 macey: since this is the end of hc 3 too
1374 beth: jesus christ thats huge
1375 lily: i want one
1376 francy: i read that as winter solider and was momentarily confused
1377 abetterfuture: HC or SC?
1378 yuuhy: unless there's extra content. then it might take longer.
1379 upguntha: I want it nowwwwww
1380 emma: i'm heading offline for a while - it was a fun chat!!
1381 macey: for the omnibus? i'd guess hc
1382 macey: AHHH BYE EMMA
1383 yuuhy: how is walid not fashionable
1384 yuuhy: bye emma!
1385 macey: walid has no blood on him
1386 yuuhy: oh
1387 yuuhy: is that our criterion
1388 emma left the room
1389 abetterfuture: Image Omnibuses (Walking Dead, Invincible) are usually SC.
1390 yuuhy: is that it macey
1391 lily: bye emma!
1392 macey: i mainly say this bc it makes my son the fish the most fashionable boy of all
1393 macey: oh really? then maybe sc!
1394 beth: aww bye emma!!
1395 yuuhy: but what kind of bread is ike
1396 macey: one that tastes good at first and then gets stale in your mouth
1397 abetterfuture: Did someone say 39 will be Casey-focused?
1398 darrrrkvengance: presently, matzot
1399 macey: abetter
1400 ivioss: Nick said
1401 brella: YESSS
1402 francy: by casey focused did he mean zoe and casey are going to make out in it
1403 beth: im so excited for 39 w OW
1404 beth: SAME FRANCY
1405 beth: god i hope so
1406 abetterfuture: Will there be one more solo-focused arc?
1407 beth: zoe's just like ok enough playing around i want some smooches already
1408 abetterfuture: Or is this the transition to the next big storyline?
1409 alison: zoe coming back and a casey issue, p much all I need
1410 yuuhy: do you think i said "waleb" enough times that it will be canon
1411 haley: i hope so
1412 ivioss: They could get new readers by having makeout scenes - but would they be readers?
1413 francy: id buy like five copies of that issue if it happens so it'll be like getting new readers
1414 francy: kinda
1415 macey: this is the end of the character issues i think- next may be a casey issue but i think
1416 macey: it's plot
1417 macey: so i think the rest of the season is back to plot
1418 beth: i will buy every single issue as well
1419 lily: casey uwu
1420 macey: his name is walid waleb, obviously
1421 darrrrkvengance: if i were shipping, which i'm not, it would be Hannah and Pamela
1422 ivioss: Donate a copy TPB 1 to your local library
1423 alison: well casey's had issues, but she's better imo when she's driving plot
1424 yuuhy: walid waleb and caleb waleb
1425 macey: casey issues are USUALLY plot actually
1426 brella: casey does indeed have a lot of issues
1427 alison: yeah, the last couple have been clarkson stuff
1428 brella: dead parents, time travel trauma, amnesia... lotsa stuff
1429 brella: [rimshot
1430 brella: ok i need to do ficathon things, must dash
1431 ivioss: I would like to see Casey realize she can be who she wants
1432 yuuhy: i just caught that hannah and pamela comment
1433 yuuhy: HANNAH AND PAMELA
1434 ivioss: and not who her parents want
1435 brella: BUT THIS WAS GREAT I LOVE YOU ALL

1486 haley: i freaked out when walid happened
1487 macey: yuuhy you know who i miss...your OTHER son, jun
1488 darrrrkvengance: we can't get big and mean. because our fave characters will be killed off
1489 haley: and then had to put the issue down for a while
1490 haley: and then came back and ZOE
1491 haley: and i still havent recovered
1492 yuuhy: screw jun he was just a replacement
1493 beth: me neither haley me neither
1494 yuuhy: waliiiiiiid
1495 upguntha: he reminds me of the brother from Mind the Gap
1496 abetterfuture: Mind the Gap!
1497 yuuhy: no yeah i want more jun too
1498 abetterfuture: I read the First Act and loved it.
1499 abetterfuture: How much of Act Two is out?
1500 macey: jun is my precious child
1501 macey: but i miss IRINA most of all
1502 yuuhy: annaharvelle OF COURSE that's why it's so pretty
1503 macey: better
1504 darrrrkvengance: i started MtG but dropped it.
1505 darrrrkvengance: maybe i should look back into it
1506 abetterfuture: It gets much more interesting.
1507 macey: mtg's gotten better, tbh. or more intriguing at least
1508 abetterfuture: By the end of Act One, pretty much all the mysteries have been solved.
1509 darrrrkvengance: i'm mostly just Glories and East of West now, and Saga in trade
1510 abetterfuture: But by that point you're so invested in the characters that you don't care.
1511 darrrrkvengance: and some other (mostly, Image) stuff as it grabs me
1512 macey: speaking of other comics
1513 upguntha: exactly
1514 francy: i keep seeing that when i go to the comic store macey
1515 upguntha: I got a bit of isomnia a couple of days ago and started reading YA
1516 francy: and i always consider getting it
1517 abetterfuture: I read the first trade and was a little overwhelmed.
1518 guest-250576 entered the room
1519 darrrrkvengance: well, if you get up to issue 10 and need a copy, just message me when this chat rolls arou
1520 darrrrkvengance: nd
1521 beth: i think i downloaded that to check it out but i havent had time
1522 darrrrkvengance: since i stupidly bought 2
1523 abetterfuture: is it the kind of MG madness where the more you know the more you love it?
1524 guest-250576 left the room
1525 macey: eow's so good please read it
1526 macey: better
1527 veronica left the room
1528 abetterfuture: The only series I follow monthly are MG and the Walking Dead.
1529 darrrrkvengance: i don't love the characters as much as MG, but EoW has such an awesome world
1530 abetterfuture: My usual policy is that if I'm willing to wait until the series is all out, I'll enjoy it
1531 abetterfuture: more at once.
1532 abetterfuture: And it will be cheaper.
1533 abetterfuture: But mysteries are my exception.
1534 abetterfuture: Becuase theories are half the fun.
1535 macey: yeah mg i wouldn'tt be able to tradewait
1536 macey: i don't know how people do it
1537 upguntha: I don't know how peoaple tradewait this boook
1538 darrrrkvengance: you could definitly read EoW in trade, imo. though floppies is better for teh creators
1539 upguntha: I can barely deal when the issues get push back
1540 upguntha left the room
1541 haley: i cant even imagine
1542 francy: i could never wait for mg
1543 abetterfuture: Yeah, the deays on this issue were really frusterating.
1544 francy: since it's one of those series where i get actually sad if i'm spoiled for it
1545 upguntha entered the room
1546 guest-250624 changed nickname to upguntha
1547 francy: and i know i'd be spoiled if i.... wait.....
1548 alison: francy you're not allowed to wait, who will i frantically text about things
1549 alison: especially now that zoe is back
1550 darrrrkvengance: though it's prolly been good for my LCS
1551 alison: waiting four hours for you today was painful
1552 francy: ZOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeee
1553 darrrrkvengance: since every time i go down there, and the new MG isn't out yet, i buy something else anywa
1554 abetterfuture: At least we've gotten all 13 issues of HC 3 in 13 months.
1555 francy: lmao when i got to that page i squealed really loudly and my dad was like "did someone die
1556 francy: NO DAD JUST THE OPPOSITE
1557 abetterfuture: It's just wierd that it double-shipped some months and then delayed others.
1558 macey: everyone on twitter this morning was FLIPPING OUT and i thought i was gonna be sad
1559 macey: brella had to make sure i knew it was happy
1560 darrrrkvengance: me too, Macey!
1561 yuuhy: i lie how you thought people were going to be on fire
1562 macey: it's mostly nick's schedule; he did double shipping right before he started on his new
1563 macey: books i think
1564 abetterfuture: K.
1565 darrrrkvengance: i twitted Joe to thank him for spoiling me only enough to avoid the internet today
1566 macey: joe is a fairly speedy artist
1567 abetterfuture: How many series is he writing right now?
1568 macey: SEVEN
1569 darrrrkvengance: i was so sure Ike was gonna kill everyone
1570 macey: five for image and two for marvel. he is a machine
1571 macey: i expected more violence on ike's part but once gribbs showed up in 37
1572 macey: i knew he was gonna beat ike up
1573 abetterfuture: MG, that Joker one, Avengers World, Superior Foes...
1574 darrrrkvengance: Bedlam
1575 abetterfuture: What are the other three?
1576 yuuhy: cerulean, great beyond
1577 macey: his three new ones that havent started yet
1578 yuuhy: paradigms
1579 macey: cerulean, great beyond, paradigms
1580 macey: great beyond's a mini though
1581 upguntha: the other 3 have no dates on them
1582 yuuhy: I'M SO EXCITED
1583 yuuhy: i want to read great beyond so much
1584 abetterfuture: Any odds on the run length of Avengers World and SS?
1585 abetterfuture: I meant SF?
1586 yuuhy: supfoes is an ongoing
1587 macey: supfoes is going as long as people buy it, it's nick's dream book
1588 yuuhy: it'll go as long as it sells well
1589 abetterfuture: I've read the first few on Marvel Unlimited.
1590 macey: avengers world idk. but i think that's more of a book that nick could do a storyline on
1591 abetterfuture: It's pretty great.
1592 yuuhy: avengers world is limited series? not sure.
1593 macey: and them pass to someone else?
1594 macey: i think he may be doing the start....i think it's meant to be ongoing
1595 darrrrkvengance: i'm ashamed to admit i haven't done Subfoes yet. Secret 6 got me back into comics after a
1596 macey: but this is marvel it could totally end at #15 and then reboot
1597 yuuhy: friends. friends. i love infinite vacation.
1598 yuuhy: great beyond is gonna be so great.
1599 yuuhy: SO GREAT.
1600 darrrrkvengance: long layoff. and i'm wary that i'm just going to be comparing it
1601 macey: superior foes is a GODSEND
1602 yuuhy: friends if you haven't read infinite vacation
1603 yuuhy: PLEASE
1604 yuuhy: it has art by christian ward who is doing ody-c
1605 macey: it's a lot different than s6. like s6 had an emotional backbone right? they all cared
1606 macey: for each other
1607 darrrrkvengance: i read the first three or four, until the anal rape scene, which was too much
1608 yuuhy: oh yeah there is that
1609 yuuhy: and oral castration
1610 macey: supfoes is a comedy comic about a bunch of assholes who just want cash
1611 yuuhy: it is a lot
1612 abetterfuture: SF is about lovable loser villains who all hate each other.
1613 yuuhy: but it's only for like two ages
1614 upguntha: Ifinite Vaca is every dann thing
1615 yuuhy: pags
1616 yuuhy: PAGES
1617 darrrrkvengance: i loved, LOVED nick's arc on THUNDER Agents
1618 yuuhy: SAAAAAME
1619 yuuhy: i can't find the second volume though
1620 abetterfuture: How was Nick's 14-issue run on Secret Avengers?
1621 darrrrkvengance: Secret Six just broke my heart. i love that comic to pieces
1622 abetterfuture: Satisfying?
1623 darrrrkvengance: i have an original page on my wall
1624 yuuhy: i hear secret avengers was really good
1625 macey: no idea about secret avengers. ales kot's current run is GREAT though
1626 yuuhy: haven't read it yet
1627 macey: i had friends who hated nick's secret avengers for the concept
1628 upguntha: I only read the 1st issue of SA it was cool
1629 upguntha: is anyone reading the Bunker by Fialkow
1630 upguntha: Fialkov*
1631 darrrrkvengance: i was big into DC before they burned it all down
1632 macey: yuuhy you're a fialkov fan
1633 abetterfuture: I read the free first issue.
1634 darrrrkvengance: but the ends of 'Tec, Batgirl (!!!), and Secret Six (SIGH!) were so, so great
1635 yuuhy: i've read the first issue and bought the second one, haven't gotten around to reading it
1636 upguntha: it's so goof
1637 darrrrkvengance: almost worth them KILLING MY THREE FAVE COMICS
1638 upguntha: good
1639 yuuhy: oh fialkov said he and joe aren't doing that thing joe was drawing concept art for anymore
1640 macey: so happy i got into comics just as it became known dc was terrible
1641 beth: hey i'm probably going to head out now but tonights chat was great!! i love you all
1642 upguntha: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
1643 yuuhy: but they want to do something together. just not that idea.
1644 macey: ahhh, i see
1645 yuuhy: bye beth!
1646 francy: night beth!!! smooches
1647 macey: I HOPE THEY DO SOMETHING they sound like a cool team
1648 haley left the room
1649 upguntha: bye
1650 macey: BYE BETH SLEEP TIGHT DREAM OF ZOE
1651 yuuhy: i love fialkov he's such a fuckin troll
1652 haley entered the room
1653 beth: THANK YOU MACEY I WILL DO <33
1654 guest-250786 changed nickname to haley
1655 beth left the room
1656 upguntha: Orphan Black this weekend
1657 abetterfuture: I'm relatively new to MG. I only started following monthly with #26. How do the long-time
1658 yuuhy: ORPHAN BLACK THIS WEEKEND
1659 abetterfuture: fans cope with delays?
1660 francy: mostly cry a lot
1661 alison: read other comics
1662 upguntha: a lot of hand holding
1663 upguntha: remember the wait between 24 and 25
1664 francy: i tend to spam mg graphics a lot when there's long waits
1665 macey: tbh delays aren't horribly uncommon in any image comic, so
1666 macey: i just read the other comics. haha
1667 abetterfuture: Like, Issues 22-25 took seven months to come out.
1668 yuuhy: AHH fialkov's ultimate ff today ahhh
1669 darrrrkvengance: we were spoiled recently by the double shipping
1670 alison: yeah. because most of the authors have the freedom to put more work into issues.
1671 macey: it's a lot easier with mg now that the fandom's big. bc people will always be talking
1672 yuuhy: i haven't read it yet omg i forgot about it
1673 francy: yeah
1674 darrrrkvengance: i did floppies on MG from 1-12. but the third arc was sooooo delayed
1675 haley: watching the fandom grow has been really cool
1676 alison: which leads to delays -- like Kelly Sue is making sure each arc of Pretty Deadly is done
1677 alison: before they solicit it
1678 darrrrkvengance: so i switched to trades for chapters 3 and 4
1679 darrrrkvengance: went back to floppies on 26
1680 macey: YEAH a lot of independent comics are doing what pretty deadly and saga are doing
1681 abetterfuture: Sales are shrinking slowly but surely. How low does and Image series have to go before
1682 abetterfuture: it's canceled?
1683 macey: huge hiatuses between arcs to get issues out on time
1684 upguntha: with Image i think it's up to the creative team
1685 macey: better
1686 macey: sales went UP
1687 yuuhy: image takes a flat rate no matter what the sales are
1688 macey: also
1689 alison: yeah Image is pretty understanding
1690 alison: MG's sales would get it canceled with Marvel, sure, but it's fine with Image.
1691 macey: image is pretty good even with very low selling books. they're not dc.
1692 abetterfuture: Cool. That makes me worry less.
1693 macey: also
1694 alison: I don't think Spencer would have such a long game if he thought it'd be canceled.
1695 darrrrkvengance: Image produces awesome books people want to read. they're not dc
1696 macey: image is pretty connected to the internet; i think they could have noticed
1697 yuuhy: i dont think we ever have to worry about mg being canceled
1698 yuuhy: as long as nick and joe are able to do the book and there are people reading it
1699 macey: plus with mg we do have fandom growth- people are reading it still
1700 macey: even as it gets longer, in today's era of binge watching....it could still grow
1701 upguntha: the trades for MG sel pretty good too
1702 francy: i think it helps that nick and joe are so active with interacting with the fandom too
1703 alison: yeah and Spencer is going to get attention because he's writing big Marvel books.
1704 alison: which will lead to more readership on his indies.
1705 abetterfuture: Yeah, I think it's going to help that new fans can read three big hardcovers right away,
1706 darrrrkvengance: also, i feel this is a story Nick really wants to tell
1707 macey: i hear mg's trade sales are really, really high and always have been- not top 10 but high
1708 abetterfuture: and know that answers do come, even if they take a while.
1709 yuuhy: i bought so many trades of mg the first week i started reading it...
1710 darrrrkvengance: though it def supports Nick, Joe, and the LCSs when we buy in floppies
1711 darrrrkvengance: which i'm glad to do for such a great story
1712 darrrrkvengance: and a great community
1713 yuuhy: if you preorder!
1714 macey: I PREORDER [JUMPS
1715 yuuhy: buying singles off the shelves doesn't count as a sale!
1716 alison: yeah unfortunately singles are "just what the store thought they'd get in."
1717 alison: or need.
1718 abetterfuture: How much does digital contribute?
1719 haley: having a pull list is the same as preordering right?
1720 darrrrkvengance: yes
1721 alison: yep!
1722 macey: digital i think contributes but a little less than print
1723 macey: bc digital costs less
1724 alison: yeah, I haven't seen any solid numbers on how digital works yet.
1725 yuuhy: pretty sure for image digital sales don't count in their initial sales figures...
1726 yuuhy: ...but they factor it in after
1727 alison: but anything you read on comics beat, for instance, doesn't include digital numbers.
1728 yuuhy: image loves their digital stuff but the industry hasn't adapted to it
1729 alison: so it's hard to say. that said, it does explain why some books are allowed to continue
1730 macey: yeah image sells drm-free issues. they're the best for digital right now
1731 alison: even with super low numbers -- see
1732 upguntha: alright y'all Im'm gonna head out

1758 haley: ha i am actually in the middle of good omens
1759 yuuhy: you are east coast?
1760 macey1: so it's in a world where the civil war lasted way longer and the country split further
1761 abetterfuture: How do I get Sex Criminals if Comixology doesn't sell it?
1762 darrrrkvengance: i have such a ludicrous backlog

1765 yuuhy: order it online fro tfaw or midtown?
1766 macey1: it is very hard to explain more
1767 haley: no thats fine it sounds pretty up my alley
1768 macey: comixology sells sexcrims just not on ios
1769 darrrrkvengance: EoW is like a SF Western.
1770 macey: you'd have to use your computer
1771 macey: doesn't it....?
1772 darrrrkvengance: the world gets fractured after the Civil War

1797 macey: "get back in bed you asshole"
1798 abetterfuture: Thanks. This might be the week where I break my "Only 2 Monthly Comics" rule.
1799 francy: nine didnt have time to deal with his bullshit
1800 darrrrkvengance: yeah, what's up with Nine? why doesn't she pull the strings more?
1801 macey: nine's certainly something
1802 darrrrkvengance: i feel she's so much more badass than Gribbsy
1803 haley: i want to see more nine
1804 macey: especially since she's been working at mga since she was a literal toddler
1805 macey: was nice to see her get screentime though

1816 abetterfuture left the room
1817 macey: i MISS irina. it's been eight issues! since august!
1818 haley: she would not be having any of that

1828 macey: i hope it isn't poisoned
1829 yuuhy left the room
1830 darrrrkvengance: before = Irina
1831 macey: b-but she'd be cute chubby
1832 macey: and could probably still kick ass
1833 darrrrkvengance: oh, for sure.
1834 darrrrkvengance: she and Pamela (like, honestly, anyone and Pamela) would be hot together
1835 darrrrkvengance: in the "i like you, but i'm gonna kick your ass, or stab you" way
1836 macey: irina likes a challenge
1837 macey: no pam this arc! next arc i HOPE
1838 darrrrkvengance: when pam isn't in an arc, i like to think it's cuz what she's up to
1839 darrrrkvengance: is just too gruesome. or too cute.
1840 darrrrkvengance: well, i should roll myself
