pardon mt ignorance, but what's this about a lost chapter and why is the facebook community to blame?


back to the comic at hand. if you look at panel 3 you can see two people on monitors behind Katies speech bubbles. i wonder who they could be?

SilentChaos87 is referring to "The Fall of PETM" story arc, which we'll never get to see because it wound up being scrapped due to complaints from the comic's Facebook community.

I think those are just posters. It'd seem weird to have someone watching her while she's (presumably) having sex.

who cares about complainers? people only have time to complain because they aren't doing anything productive. it's a waste of time to argue with them and if you do, you just end up not getting anything done either.


and i think you right about the pictures on the wall being posters. for some reason i thought they were screens. i don't know what i was thinking.

The problem comes from the fact that the facebook community was apparently the more lucrative so in order to keep the money flowing things needed to be done

There wouldn't be enough money for a "private release" or something I suppose?

Facebook wasn't more "lucrative," the ad revenue the webcomic run receives as a whole is what allowed the series to break even on the costs of the art/letter/toning. The problem was that Facebook's community was pro-Vampire Cheerleaders and rebelled against what they saw as Paranormal Mystery Squad taking over the series in the "Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die!" story arc. Granted, that was the intention as Vampire Cheerleaders was intended to be a micro-story lasting two adventures before becoming known as "Vampire Cheerleaders Presents" with Lori serving as a horror host. The "Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die!" story was written as a Paranormal Mystery Squad one and was intended to lead directly into PMS's big 'Fall of PETM' arc. But all the infighting and negative comments on Facebook (which was pro-VC), and to a lesser extent this forum (largely pro-PMS), eventually started to chip away at our hits. There were only two solutions: end the series after "Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die!" or come up with some way to merge the two series together.

my prediction is Stephanie will walk into a AWOOOOOO....


But from the panel it looks as though katie is wearing a shirt... Im gonna be so sad to see these comics go...

as for transmission of lycanthropy She already marked him as hers with a bite to the gonads in werewolf form... And i don't know kissing should transmit it too going by it being in the bite but maybe in the future they have a vaccine or something to explain.

No she didn't. Adam said the bite didn't break the denim.

And you chose to end it after Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die? Didn't you have other arcs planned? Was it that impossible to merge the two series, even if only for a little while?
