Nice to see we're keeping our stride. Walk out of one comic move right into another.

One little "oops" I see for Candice: The text says her leg scar should be just below her knee, but the illustration shows her scar mid-thigh. Also, the calf is just the muscle group in the back of the lower leg which is used to move the foot and wiggle the toes. I think you want to transplant the entire lower leg, not just the muscles. Actually, mid-thigh is probably the best place to do the transplant; the muscular forces aren't as concentrated there and all the complicated stuff around the joints is far away. So, my suggestion is to keep the illustration and update the text.

I don't think so. This was actually a rejected comic idea.

So what we're getting are some character designs and then a script rather than a comic.

After 2/12, it's officially over.

Unless there's a Valentine's pic in the work that I don't know about.

There's one last VC/PMS thing on 2/13, and then a color final picture thingy 2/16.

Thanks! That's good to know.

Though it'll be a sad day when the website finally stops updating.

P.S.: Actually one more question. Are we still doing the Monday/Wednesday/Friday updates or will this last part be daily updates.

dang it! these char bios are making me actually want to read the comic. a comic that won't come to pass. now i'm wanting to read the story of the highly unlikely love affair between a stuck up killer cheerleader and her mad scientist boyfriend. Candice can be the face/brawn, Franklin can be the brains/builder of said brawn. Will Franklin ever build Candice a proper proverbial heart? Will Candice teach Franklin to stand up for himself in a seemingly cruel world? Read on to find out!

The third book was originally going to have Frankenbitches as the lead story and Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die! as the back-up. Due to the costs of having two different art teams (and VC's success as a webcomic), Frankenbitches was shelved with the intention of us coming back to it at a later time. That didn't happen, but the story itself is important to the Vampire Cheerleaders canon, so that's why I'm presenting this now. Frankenbitches might still happen at some point, who knows

This Franklin sounds like the kind of guy Gary would get along with
We sealed him not out of fear of what he was, but out of fear of what he could do. So much power and knowledge at his disposal...he could destroy all of existence and remake it instantaneously

With his soul and energy torn from his flesh, it took little effort to contain him. We made his prison on to a burning planet, an world unfit for life. Even when the seals are unlocked, no vessel will be there for him to take

A rift in the Cosmos mark his return
Upon his resurrection the Universe will burn

Not really. Franklin may be mildly disturbed, but at least he's proactively trying to do something about his girl problem. Gary is passive and waits for things to just sorta happen for him, or happen to him. It was one of the main reasons I stopped reading 'Menage á 3'.

If anything, I'd say "Frank" might get along better with Leonard, since both of 'em associate with undead chicks. Leonard was even bangin' 'em, so he might not find with Franklin's doing to be all that strange.
