HELL YEAH!

I've ordered book 5 and woken up to see this terrific image of Maytag in full Jester Suit action on the cover.  She looks awesome!

Seems like some Gambling is due.  A pack of cards and that uniform is probably all she's got left with her posessions missing... I'm still half expecting that potion of posession made from her spirit essence to be used against her at some point... We'll see.

Also looking forward to seeing the other costume getting designed for her, no matter how outlandish it might be.  *PMSL* They need to get one designed for Crest *LOL*

Mwee! Maytag's so cool. I love the latest cover. I think it's my favorite so far.

Man you do some fantastic Backgrounds Brion.  A new town of wonder like Eschelon has just been beautiful for showing off the skills there and seeing some fasinating, fantastical images.

Thank you very much.  One of the problems with trying to move a story along fast is that you need a lot of transitions because of quick scene changes.  Which means you need to draw a lot of backgrounds.  I just finished penciling next Friday's page and it's very background heavy also, so it took awhile.

I'm glad that they're turning out well, though... (I'm also glad that you didn't notice how the perspective in page 2 doesn't really make sense.  There should not be a tower that high... but luckily I don't think that's the kind of thing most people will notice.)

I just figured it was a magick tower that sat on top of another rock and had a portal leading to a building far below.

So, yo have a city on a floating rock, with more floating constructions above it and are bothered by the laws of physics for the hight of a tower?

Not the laws of physics, but perhaps how rareified the air is up there.

It's not a physics issue, it's just a simple perspective mistake.  The tower is drawn to look much higher than it could actually be, that's all.  It's supposed to be the tower on top of the dorms where Suspiria lives, so it's not supposed to be as high as the actual university, which should be the tallest building of the island.

Awwww, but she can still wear the suit on air!  *lol* nah, I see what Crest is getting at. Her direct audience for the live performances.

I wonder how Showgrams make money... Advertising, donations?  Maybe there's actually a special subscription with those earings, like pay $6 to get one which will tune in for a month or something. *thinks* that would be 1,440,000 a year for Glyph's showgram.

I've changed my mind. Its going to be harder for Melter to pull of the kidnapping if Maytag becomes popular and well known.  Her kidnapping would attract a significant amount of attention from a city thats probably full of the most powerful magick users.

I agree with smiles--I like Crest, and he hasn't been seen much lately. Looking forward to more with him :)

Wow! Turned down for the show...it's probably cause she's steal all the fans! That's gonna be my guess. Too much competition for the others ;)

i get the feeling that she hasn't been turned down, but that there is another issue, i'm expecting a "but" on the next page.

Flipside desktops, knock yourself out.

They handed out a lot of the earings for free to get a starter audience?

I still reckon thats the money maker though.  Someone makes the earings with a limited amount of charge, in some way that can't be replicated, and they sell them.

I'd think Maytag's best option would be to try and come in on the tail end of their existing show or as a lead in.  Already established audience and all they have to do is keep listening into the same channel.

But the title of the chapter gives me the impression that Maytag will be taking some kind of gamble to get going with her show that'll have slim odds of success.

Wait. So how exactly do sound stones work again? You have to get a second pair to broadcast to that someone? You can't just broadcast to any other pair you like? Sounds like a radio star using one way walkie-talkies.

so is May's dream of having her own show at an end or will she take up gambling again?
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

ONE MEEEEEEEELIOOOON GOLD!  :P
I love Maytag's reaction.
That's one advantage we have over the inhabitants of Iscariot. It's really expensive to host a podcast in a fantasy world.  :P

Yes, soundstones aren't like radios.  They have to be enchanted to pick up sound from a specific source.

So they set up a rather big (for their world) broadcasting network and have the only sender. The reaonable thing to do would be to sell time to peoplo who want to use that sender.
Would make them from a single show to a broadcasting company, but anyway that's where they invested the money.

But they went into business to be "radio" personalities. But not "radio" producers. As a group, they may not be willing to do the work that requires.

I say "radio" for lack of better term. :P

From Experience, I can't blame them - There is a reason the main talent is often separate from the production side, and the production side is hard work. I was co-host on our show, and yet, it was definitely the quietest, because the whole time you have to be doing 15 things at once, as well as actively listening to the sound, watching the clock, AND participating in the discussion.

So what's costing so much with these stones? The enchantments, the materials needed for the earing, or what?

Also, they should get a patent on their invention, before someone tries to steal it :P

Not looking good for Maytag's new dream.  :(

But she's not this easily discouraged. We'll wait and see what comes out of it...

They don't need to be producers to sell time on their microphone equivalent. They can sell to producers.
Still needs a lot of work, but I'm suprised that nobody has done this before and each show is building up it's very own network.

@Brion:

Still loving the comic.  That said, small grammatical error today.  Each has "its" own (id est, without apostrophe).  Just in the interest of the comic... ^.^  I couldn't remember if there was a separate thread for this kind of thing so if I missed it, let me know.

Yes, there's the bold "MISTAKE THREAD." Found in the forums, in the same sub category where you found "Chapter 28: Discussion."
