Oh man, I hope there are some survivors!  I am on pins and needles here!

Flipside Discussion / Flipside Live Action Series

Hey I have a question for you guys.  Hypothetically, suppose there were going to be a Flipside live action series.  Just wondering, how would you feel about that?

OH MY Dear Brion.. there is Soooo much more to the story than just that... and it ALL Good.. look further... there are many more quests after that MANY MORE!

Yeah, I figured.  I should probably try to get back into it one of these days!

These last few panels really portray to the reader a feeling of chaos and confusion that matches how everyone but Melter appears to be reacting. And doing so without resorting to a bunch of indistinguishable motion-blur mess is probably the most impressive aspect. Really enjoying the story Brion!


Hey Brion, we should do a vote.  Like, how many people want this chapter to go totally Grimdark, with everyone dying?

Haha, yes you can all feel free to vote your opinions!  That said, the chapter might go grimdark whether you want it or not!  Or maybe it won't, who knows!

And YES, ElfQuest is my most favorite storylines.. and recently the Final Quest ended and I'm saddened by not just the end of the story... but how it ended.  I will Howl for the lost all the rest of my days as well...

Didn't know about the "Final Quest."  I only read up to and including Kings of the Broken Wheel.  The original 20 issue comic (first 4 volumes of the graphic novels) are still my favorite.

I'm more sad that this is another Crest group chapter, 3rd in a row...

I understand.  But I kinda had no choice but to do it that way.  We're pushing through the separate storylines and we're almost at the end of them... from then on, it's going to be one storyline with all the characters united.  So, please bear with it a little bit longer!

All said, I love this page. It kinda reminds me of one of the pages of Elfquest, and there is a very poster-quality feel to the last panel.

That's cool you think so... Elfquest was actually the very first comic to really get my interest, back when I was a kid!  And was a big part of what drew me towards manga.

You're welcome! Do you know much longer do you plan to do Flipside, Brion, or to be more precise, have you envisioned an ending? 😎

Yes, I have envisioned an ending.  To tell you the truth, I would like to end it at some point just so I can move on to some other projects.  But I have a vision for how the story should go, and it has to be realized as well as I can first.

Great image of Suspiria screaming...and the current Crest arc is so easy to relate to...I really know that feeling.  And the mystery is still behind everything that we don't know what is real and what has been created by Suspiria's subconscious.  Great storytelling, great artwork!!!!!

Thanks!  I try!

OKay, fixed everything up to this point (I think.)

As a side note, if you are posting about a mistake, please try to include a page# and a panel#.  If you just say something like "in today's page," when I come back to look at it later, I won't be able to figure out what page you were talking about.

Hmm, I don't really put too much thought into what their voices should sound like.  There's a general sort of voice I hear in my head, but it's vague and fuzzy.  It doesn't sound exactly like anyone.  But I think you guy are on the right track in how you're saying Bernadette should sound.

I won't confirm or deny anything, but I just have to say something about Occam's Razor.  it only makes sense to use it for real world problems.  I see people use it all the time to analyze fiction, and it makes no sense to use it that way.  Fiction does not comform to the "simplest explanation is usually the best" rule, not at all!  Fiction is often contrived, complex, convoluted.  In fact, even when it's trying to hide it's contrivances, it's always at least a little contrived.  Writers certainly don't choose plots on the basis of "the simplest answers," they choose whatever seems interesting or exciting.

If anything you'd be better off using Opposite Occam's Razor for fiction.  "The most complicated answer is usually correct."  That's probably true more of the time!

I'm reminded strongly of Bravely Default: Where The Fairy Flies

When that little title shenanigans was pointed out to me, I was quite impressed!  Loved that game, btw!

Happy holidays, guys!  Sorry for the repeat pages, but these have all not been posted online for a long time, so I figured people might appreciate seeing them again!

Kiran: It'll vary.  For the first several chapters it will be cut off from the main story and feature new characters other than Maytag.  Although it's not completely cut off, it's still all considered canon.  Eventually there will probably be other characters from the main comic involved.

Of course not!  It's appreciated.

Skipped 57.

That's not a mistake, 56-57 is a two page spread.

By the characters or by us?

Technically I think in one comic, it mentioned it was female. But people keep forgetting. Including Eye, who calls the cat him. And when first introduced on page 56 she. May asks if the cat is a girl cat, and CS3 says "It's not important."

Damn, that might be me that forgot, and not Eye.  I should probably go back and fix that!

Flipside Discussion / Short break for Flipside due to bed bugs.
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:49:04 pm »
Hey guys, I have some unfortunate news.  I just learned that our apartment has bed bugs.  This means we are going to have to move out for a little while, and putting up new pages is going to be very difficult for the time being.<BR><BR>

I hate to do this, but I'm gonna have to take a short break from the comic.  But I'm gonna keep working on pages in the meantime, and post more as soon as I am able!  I will keep you posted.

Patreon news!  My first goal is gonna be to do a short adult Flipside comic at $120.  It will be available for all $3 or higher Patreons!

Yeah, just that the pinocchio thing makes 0 sense to me in this context. She's smug, and she really is amazing, so why the nose thing? Plus, its a sudden change of comic style, which is just odd (ie up to now there were never such "facial expressions" in the comic). Whatev, just found it strange, personally.

Yeah it was meant to show her being smug.  Not sure where I came up with this idea, it just felt right at the time.

(Actually I think I got it from Ibuki from Danganronpa 2.)

Just added a new reward to the Patreon! Now for $5 a month, you will get access to a high res PDF of the latest chapter!

If you sign up now, for a limited time there will be a link posted to PDFs for all of the previous books! That's books 1-9!

As for toys, definitely thinking about something like that for a higher tier.

That'll take a bit of effort to set up, but yeah you're not the first person to suggest it.  It's something I'm considering for the future.

Maybe I should change the name of Flipside to "Sympathy for the Wierdos"
