She looks so modern but there still is the blood mask.
Face & hair do look right & good.
velvetsanity 17th Apr 2015, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

Speaking of the mask...are you sure she's not actually a pro wrestler? ^_~
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 2:16 AM edit delete reply

Im glad she looks ok :D
Confettirainbowpony 17th Apr 2015, 1:47 AM edit delete reply

Hey!! You CAN do it!! Lololol!! XD and she looks amazing!!! *__*<3
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 2:16 AM edit delete reply

YAY! Im very glad of that! More cameos are planned :D
Dragonrider 17th Apr 2015, 3:04 AM edit delete reply

Ya know this was a great idea before the dinner party. Now all it will accomplish is getting Acantha and Lynn locked down tighter and it doesn't take into consideration Lynn ain't leaving without Acantha and Acantha ain't leaving until SFB is locked up so far from human interaction he will never see the light of day or the light of the moon. Well he might see the moon if he has a mirror, drops trou and looks over his shoulder.

The authors have to put in some excuses to be worried the protagonists won't win, otherwise there's no drama or suspense. I mean really, they wouldn't go to all this trouble to introduce so many people and entire factions that Decimus is just gonna end up killing or capturing before they can accomplish anything: Law of conservation of detail and all.
Until Kyle died I thought most people identified as team not-Caligula also had impervium-grade plot armour too, but I'm not sure how to read how minor a character Kyle was to analyze that.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:31 PM edit delete reply

wai for it.. all will be revealed soon :D
ProfEtheric 17th Apr 2015, 3:12 AM edit delete reply

Awesome cameo!

It's going to be TERRIBLY interesting to see all these plans go down... :)

Five-star rating, because I see no particular thing I would change.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:31 PM edit delete reply

it will probably wind up in a firefly style cluster fuck :D
highlander55 17th Apr 2015, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

Cent I'm sure you don't mean it will end suddenly like Firefly. Serenity was a tease but exceptionally worth watching! I have it on DVD.
Howard 17th Apr 2015, 4:48 AM edit delete reply
They down Rated the comic?! I will kick them in there virtual no no zones!! They may have got to that dark chapter near the beginning. If I am being honest I have to say I nearly walked away there, to dark for me. But I knew lunar star was awesome, so I kept going and I am glad I did!
Stormwind13 17th Apr 2015, 8:06 AM edit delete reply

Talking about Mockingbird, Howard? I agree that it is DARK; however, I still had to give it 5 stars. It was WELL done. Once I got through it, I never wanted to read it again! It was so dark, such nightmare fuel that I don't feel the need to subject myself to it again. But it was well done.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:30 PM edit delete reply

Yes .. Mockingbird.. the most hated/loved segment.. :D wait till I redo it :D

Concrete shoes !
mjkj 17th Apr 2015, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

Wow, nice party ingredients...

...though is that really still necessary after all the distraction the late kyle did?

*lol* Two-Cells - well, Marcus, you needed to make a pun - it backfired ^_^

Timeline-wise when does that happen? same time as the shooting? before? or after?

Oh, there are people who downvote DC??? Woah...

Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:30 PM edit delete reply

At the same time as "dinner" is going on .. roughly
Stormwind13 17th Apr 2015, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

I'm wondering if it was an accident, Centcomm. I know I had a 1 star vote on a page. I went to put in a comment, and at the bottom it has buttons for voting. So I put in a comment & somehow got down on the buttons. The first button apparently was lit, when I submitted. When I went to vote, it showed a 1 star vote. And it wouldn't let me change it!

Now I vote on pages I like, 5 stars. If I don't like a page, I don't vote on it. More careful now too.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:29 PM edit delete reply

it could be .. but its been happening on a number of pages .. and I dont mind if someone doesn't like something .. just would like to know WHY :D
KarToon12 17th Apr 2015, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

"The party don't start 'till I walk in." XD
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:28 PM edit delete reply

YEP! you got that right
lalverson 17th Apr 2015, 12:50 PM edit delete reply
Well done as usual but a critical point. Marcus's eyes in the last to looked "Off" to me. but it's just me.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 5:28 PM edit delete reply

Yeah .. I think its just the lighting ..
anonymous coward 17th Apr 2015, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
I just noticed something that seems... off. Shouldn't the fabric of Kathryn's shirt (sweater?) stretch between the breasts instead of conforming to her cleavage gap? I'm not saying that clothes that stretch like that aren't possible--I've had a seamstress explain to me at length various methods of trying to do things like it--but it does take more effort. Most people wouldn't bother unless they specifically want their clothes to show independent boob jiggle or something. I suppose I can't count out the possibility that it becomes a fashion trend at some point when custom clothes design and construction for endowed women is easy, but it still seems really weird.
Stormwind13 17th Apr 2015, 3:00 PM edit delete reply

I have a feeling that may have more to do with the model designers than any statement being made by the character or artist, anonymous. :-)
Hornet 17th Apr 2015, 3:02 PM edit delete reply
Think it's a failure of the software, clothes appear to be little more than "painted" on.
HiFranc 17th Apr 2015, 3:22 PM edit delete reply

Whenever I see anything that doesn't conform to expectations I just assume that clothes in the future have different properties to today's. After all, I would expect that they would have invented new materials by the time of this story.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2015, 3:58 PM edit delete reply

actually thats a limitation of the software .. he shir shes wearing is a separate model but it super conforms to her body other items are modeled with the "uniboob" like Acantha's sweater and some of the coats.. I use what I can to vary the wardrobe up :D
anonymous coward 17th Apr 2015, 6:07 PM edit delete reply
Interesting, I didn't know that was specifically one of the limitations of the software. I guess I should take another look in five years to see what the bleeding-edge limits are then: I'm hoping to see it becomes easy to make a 3D model of an area with just a few, quick, automated pan shots.
chk 17th Apr 2015, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

Failure? I love it.
chk 17th Apr 2015, 6:10 PM edit delete reply

Why on earth would anyone down rate this comic? As best as I can tell, it's the best on the web.
Ten Penny Officer 17th Apr 2015, 6:21 PM edit delete reply

I recognized her at once.
Great cameo :)
DLKmusic 17th Apr 2015, 8:20 PM edit delete reply

I don't understand the downgrade either. I personally think that as far as the 3D rendered comics go, the artwork here is the most naturally posed of all the ones I've read.

As for the content, even at it's darkest, is IMO scripted as well as anything out there.

Although apples and oranges, you have Star Wars space opera crossed with the dialog and character development of "To Kill a Mockingbird".

So, in summation, to the Haters I say "pffffffht"
Haegan2005 17th Apr 2015, 8:22 PM edit delete reply

Ah, nothing like party favors to make yourself popular!

Looks like we may have a civil war on our hands guys!
Stormwind13 17th Apr 2015, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

Or at least a coup attempt, Haegan. Not sure 700 guns is enough for a war, no matter how civil it might be.

Of course, Kathryn might be bringing her OWN party favors too, then the war might be on. :-D
Deo 17th Apr 2015, 9:53 PM edit delete reply

My two cents.

talking about "what can i improve stuff", sometimes the mouths in your characters generate light(like on the last panel), and the general lightning may be too dim/coming from weird angles(on the first panel, the collar of the dude in the left is reflecting light, meanwhile the armor of the other dude isn't).
Draginbeard 18th Apr 2015, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

That much hardware...this sounds like they are mounting a pretty solid offensive!
