Axes deflect burning hot rainbows. Just so you guys know.
I’m taking off on tour for the next two weeks, but the pages will go up. I’m cranking away at the comics mill to get the pages done in time. Weirdly, the big pain in making these isn’t the art or coloring or lettering, so much, but the sound effects. I really don’t like doing sound effects. I try to adhere to Nate Piekos’s (of Blambot.com) methods of coming up with sound effects, but maaan, I don’t know that I’m cut out for it. I do know that a good sound effect really helps a panel a great deal. I just don’t feel like I’m the guy to make them. Being the only guy working on a comic can be really frustrating in a number of ways.
The battle ramps up between Axe Cop and Rainbow Girl. Next week… SOMEONE DIES.
KIDS’ QUOTES OF THE WEEK
“I really like learning about fire.”
-Charlotte, 6 years old
Amelia’s singing along to the radio.
“Oh, I just died in your arms tonight
It must have been a pillow fight”
-Amelia, 6 years old

I lost it at the misheard lyrics bit with Amelia. Super cute and innocent.
Amelia’s ridiculously effective like that.
I KILL AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE EVERY DAY. What an awesome villain quote.
I thought so too. Charlotte said that when I asked how evil Rainbow Girl was. She thought and said “she’s so evil, she kills at least two people every day.”
Gotta make those quotas
I have an idea of how Axe Cop could defeat Rainbow Girl. First, Axe Cop chops off Medusa’s head (Axe Cop will be immune to Medusa’s power cause he drinks Gorgon-proof juice every morning), he then uses Medusa’s head on Rainbow Girl, turning her to stone. The petrified Rainbow Girl then starts crumbling just like the Kraken did in Clash of the Titans.
Or he could just, you know….. Chop off her head.
Why’d Axe Cop switch back to his regular axe?
Because those axes do different things, he needed this one again, and between this page and the last.
Outraged spit spray in panel two.
A battle so intense, it wiped off Rainbow Girl’s lipstick!
I really hope its not Mr. Stocker who dies next week.
But that’s what Mister Stocker is best at! Why stand between somebody and what makes them special?
I dunno, Tom. I think even Ethan’s onamontapaeic skills would be sorely tested by trying to write rainbow sound effects.
That, and I *like* a rainbow blast that goes “SKVASHH!”
Were the letters drawn from scratch, too?
Nope, they’re fonts.
And she can’t just steal the OJ because?
