Phew...Just a few minutes late!

It's nothing short of a miracle that this page even happened! Why? I was out most of the day (Thursday) to take my grandmas sick cat to the vet. (She's fine, by the way! Whew!)
So I lost a lot of draw time.

I almost went with Anne jabbing Felix with her elbow, but it looked too off. And the tentacle smack was more fun.:D

Also hey, guess what-

The lovely Lilbluebox, who does lovely amazing music...Made a theme for WA! Holy shit!

Listen here!

This...This is just amazing! I was pretty surprised! I mean, holy shit. Someones dressed up as Jeff and now someones made WA music?! Holy crap! I'm more stunned with every passing day at this kind of thing!

And of course it's such a beautiful tune- I can't stop listening to it! It's so, so very fitting for certain...scenes coming up! Everytime I listen, I think of the red plague doctor and those scenes! Ahhh. So pretty. ;~;

(Lilbluebox doesn't do a comic (yet!), but she has a youtube channel full of more amazing music! And of course her soundcloud!:D)

That tentacle slap! XD

Oh wow! WA Theme! That's AWESOME!:D

Heehe. A last minute change I'm glad I made!

I KNOW RIGHT?! Holy shit!!:D :D

Tentacle Slap!

The WA theme sounds a bit like Link to the Past music, but maybe that's because it sounds a bit 16-bit-ish? It's good though
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 12:43 AM edit delete reply

Ah, I'm not familiar with any music from that. So, maybe? Hahah.:D
Lilbluebox 22nd May 2015, 12:36 AM edit delete reply
Felix, you're not fooling anybody. Except Jeff, but come on, we all know that doesn't count. Word to the wise: Never play poker. EVER. You don't have the face for it.

ANNE'S TENTACLE SMACK! I'm going to be grinning over that for a while. And she hit him with the sucker-side too... oh, maaaan, he's going to have sucker-prints on his face for a week. Benny's going to snicker at him the ENTIRE TIME. Beautiful.

I would say Jeff could see the happy side to a nuclear apocalypse, but, well...

On a weirder note, I love how Anne's got curly hair and tentacles. They match! Also glasses! I'm always a fan of half-blind characters. :]

Still want Felix's top hat.

Brilliant work, as always. I doff my nonexistent top hat to you.
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 12:48 AM edit delete reply
Heheh! Felix is seemingly the worst liar in the comic, second only to Benny boy!

Ah, I'm so very glad you liked that! That was my favorite part to draw for sure. I had a big ol grin on my own face as I drew it in.
If it leaves marks, Benny boy would definitely have a good ol laugh about it!

"Happy side to a nuclear apocalypse"!!! HAHAHAH! YES! Oh my god. I love this line so much, and it's SO true, too, holy hell!

Ah, I'm glad you like those- Her curls are both horribly fun and horribly painful to draw in. But I like the result.:D
(I almost didn't give her glasses upon putting her in the comic at first, but I'm glad I did!)

(Don't we all?)

Ah, thank you very much! And thank you again for the amazing theme...! I'm gonna make it my ring tone as soon as I find my cord!:D

E: I say "Ah" too much...

I love everything about that last panel.

Great job Sea

Hahaha, thank you, and thank you! Figured you might like that!;D ;D

"Is that really something you should be proud of?"

I died!

And that tentacle smack. Awesome!

(Oh, and so so SOOOOOO jealous of that themes...)
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:05 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, I'm glad they amused! Was nice to finally get to do a more amusing page after all this serious sided stuff. Well, more serious than this, anyways.:D

(Hahah! For AB I just imagine like a remixed x-files...;D)

Anne uses tentacle slap!

It's surprisingly effective!

Seeing the completed version of this page after seeing the in progress work is awesome. XD
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:06 AM edit delete reply
Felix was knocked out instantly!

Well not really, but he got wrekt.

Ohhh yeah oh gosh I forgot people watched me color this I'm so exposed hahah :D

I'm still amazed at how many layers you tend to use for a comic page.
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 6:14 PM edit delete reply
Hahah! Yeah, I tend to go a bit nuts. I'll do like the eyes for one character in one layer, then their eyebrows, nose, etc all in it's own layer...It gets a bit messy. I do merge as I go along, though!

For this particular page I ended up having a folder/layerset for each character and each panel, and didn't merge until the end.@,@

Did you just post two comics in one day?
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:07 AM edit delete reply
Huh? Nope! Just this one page...O:

E: Or do you mean the length? Well, not QUITE double, haha.

"I didn't win a single game"
"That's... uhm.. nice?"

xD xD xD

Does a sad Jeff at all exist? Maybe this is part of his zombiness - You get perma-stuck in one specific mood, in Jeff's case happiness..? O.O

Sick cats make me sad. Great to hear she's doing fine again.

Wow that soundtrack! I can feel the darkness/sadness of damaged post-apocalyptic land, but there are the hints of joy and happiness too
...and how they strangely add to each other.
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:09 AM edit delete reply
Heehee! That was a fun bit to add in.

Sad Jeff does exist, but it sure is a rare breed! It's not a part of being a zombie, though; he really is just one positive dude.:D

Indeed! Though it turned out there wasn't even anything wrong with her and grandma was just worrying overly, hahah. But it's fine, that cat is all she has over there, so I can understand.

I know right?! Yes! I suck at describing amazing music, but that about sums it up! I love it!

Hahahah smacking with tentacle :D That's just the best :D
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:11 AM edit delete reply
Heheheh, so very glad you liked that!:D
ChilPhil 22nd May 2015, 8:15 AM edit delete reply
Wow, that was 12 panels on one page. If I did that, I'd be so tired. But it flowed nicely and I can see how it was good to get through the conversation like that.
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
Oh yes. I was pretty tired, I turned in early after this! I think the only reason I was even able to finish this on time was 'cause I got a head start the other day. But it was pretty time consuming. I had to become the draw, ignoring all else. I didn't even eat! (But I went and ate when I finished so it's k)

Ah, thank you! I'm glad it flowed alright! I worry when I have a lot of panels like this.:D

Clanjack Farlo
Wow, dat theme! That's too cool. :D
Haha, I love that tentacle whomp, though I think Benjamin would've enjoyed it even more had he been there to see it. ;)
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 10:13 AM edit delete reply
I know right? Oh my gosh~ ;~;

Hehehe, glad you like it! As for Benny boy...whew. I think he'd be too busy worrying that he was next!:D

lol in all seriousness, nice page. Tentacle smack! Wastelander's Anus. XD
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 12:06 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha. Thanks!:D

ANUS? Oh dear...
Stever 22nd May 2015, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
I'm hot and cold on playing cards. My wife and I will play a bunch and then they don't come out for 6 months.

I think you just coined "Tentacle Smack!" I'm waiting for the t-shirt ;D
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
Heheh. I'm pretty much only good at playing Spades and Crazy eights, but chances I get to play either are few and far between.

Pfffhahah! I want it on a mug!:D

but yea- why?!
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
We'll see!
Amalockh1 22nd May 2015, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
Wow! Now Wastelander Anonymous has its own theme! Maybe I should start working in a main musical theme for my own webcomic too!

By the way, the last panel of this page is just adorable :D
Seabiscuit 22nd May 2015, 9:34 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe! Yes!
Ahh, yes, definitely! I'd love to see what kind of creepy theme AA would have!

Ah, thank you! That was fun~:D
sephirencomics 23rd May 2015, 8:26 PM edit delete reply
Jeff is happy about everything, haha :D
Seabiscuit 23rd May 2015, 8:33 PM edit delete reply
It takes a lot to bring him down!
Skweeee 24th May 2015, 8:06 AM edit delete reply
I like your pages with lots of panels. I think that it suites your artstyle and story telling style.

Ha ha ha! "smack"
Seabiscuit 24th May 2015, 10:03 AM edit delete reply
Ohh, hey, Skweeee!:D

Ah, thanks! I like having more panels. But it can be rather difficult time wise, hahah. It's a miracle I finished this one at all.:D

Heheh, glad you liked that!;)
Spelledeg 24th May 2015, 6:29 PM edit delete reply
Oookay, all caught up now! Sea, you have my attention and I don't know why I didn't read WA sooner. I love your characters and EEEEE.

>_> I don't really trust Axton.. I mean he saved Felix and all, but I just don't trust him.
Seabiscuit 24th May 2015, 6:43 PM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you Spell! I'm glad you like them...They're my babies!;D

Pffhahah- Axton seems to have gained some distrust as of late! Poor dude. I do so enjoy seeing who everyone distrusts, though, for....reasons.:D

Tentacle slaaaap!
Ahahaha! I'm giggling like a dope over that. XD
Seabiscuit 24th May 2015, 7:56 PM edit delete reply
Heehee! So glad you like that! I'm pretty happy with myself that I made that last minute change.:D

And now I can't un-see her as a master of tentacle Kung fu...
Seabiscuit 26th May 2015, 12:56 PM edit delete reply
Pffhahahah- Tentacle kung fu...!

(Good lord, I somehow missed this comment, now I'm mixed with feeling bad and laughing so hard at the idea of this!)
