Good. Good...The Force is strong with you. A powerful Sith, you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth...Vader.

She is indeed a wonderful artist who could doubtless turn her hand to anything, but from what I've seen, I don't get the feeling that she's very interested in depicting some of those bits in all their wrinkly Lovecraftian glory.

I'm -so- looking forward to how this'll unfold. My bet is that Marie will behave in a bad-but-good way and just make things better instead of worse, much to Eva's chargrin.

(by the way, is it just me or the strips' dating is really wonky? Saying this strip was posted in the 4th of July and all when we're in August.)

It's backdated cos we've missed several updates. I'll try my best to synchronize it as we go on. For now just imagine you're looking at a past update ^o^ Time travel!

Ahhh but of course! I totally remember having seen this strip a month ago, it's all coming back to me, hahaha! ♥

Jokes aside, that's understandable. Great work nonetheless Eisu, and I hope we can reach present time smoothly!

Don't approve of Eva's goal or methods, but she's right about the confidence/powerful feeling. Can be quite important, and I think it will benefit Marie down the road as she (hopefully) stay mostly her good-hearted self.

Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

Yikes, I mean I know Eva is supposed to be the "baddy" and trying to turn Marie, but this still seems pretty dark for Marie. I realize it's probably supposed to be comedic, but those are quite the lumps she gave them.

I think that "lumps after being smacked in the face" are one place where these comics grossly exaggerate for visual convenience. Remember how Gary looked after Senna smacked him, and that disappeared by the next strip. It's just a way to show that something happened, but probably merely a slap just hard enough to sting.

It is... too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.

Eesh. I am not sure this is a good development for Marie, even if those twins are completely horrible. :(
My comic, Res Mira, starts here.

The crazy will bust loose. Either in the stories or on the forum. Or both at the same time.

Mad theory: Eulice is actually a retired succubus. This explains why she says DiDi Chastel looks like she did in her younger years. She maintains her current form because it allows her to get through her day without having to turn down sexual advances.

A busty redhead by decree of the Internet...? o.o;
