Tokyo Rose 18th Apr 2014, 3:01 PM edit delete reply

What, are you complaining? :D
Rashala 18th Apr 2014, 3:04 PM edit delete reply

Eyeroll was in solidarity with Acantha :)
Stormwind13 19th Apr 2014, 5:16 AM edit delete reply

I am not complaining, Rose! :-D Not one bit.
Sheela 19th Apr 2014, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

Eh, he was probably hoping for gratuitous nudity, but no such luck for him!
Rashala 20th Apr 2014, 1:03 PM edit delete reply

No sheela.

One. Acantha and lynn are underage Perv!!

Two. the eyeroll was in solidarity with acanthi at all the Sugary sweetness those others were putting off about to send me into a coma.

what a swim suit page?? QUICK cut to something boring ! >_<
cattservant 20th Apr 2014, 1:24 PM edit delete reply

Like you did with Dolly and Dusty?

Actually we could use an update on Dolly & CeCi...
Sheela 20th Apr 2014, 4:19 PM edit delete reply

You mean something like 5 pages of EDICT and VINNIE trying to figure out why a human officer would find Hamlet interesting ?

It would, offcourse, end with VINNIE blasting an empty squad car to bits and EDICT finally refusing to clean it up, just to show VINNIE that they *can* skip parts of their own programming if need be.

Which will only confuse VINNIE even further.

Also, cat farts.
Rashala 20th Apr 2014, 4:21 PM edit delete reply and Sheela in their sleeps for even suggesting that
cattservant 20th Apr 2014, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

"Also, cat farts."
That sounds exciting,
but I'm not sniffing out the reference.

Aha! Cats are practical tacticians.

Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 4:59 PM edit delete reply

cat farts :D
Rashala 20th Apr 2014, 7:22 PM edit delete reply

oh yeah you laugh at Cat farts...but you ever had a cat sitting on your chest nuzelign you then turns around and does THAT........
Sheela 21st Apr 2014, 2:53 PM edit delete reply

Everyone who have ever had a pet cat have tried THAT ..

Maxus is such a gentle giant. I love seeing him domestic like this.
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:04 PM edit delete reply

isnt it awesome! :D
xpacetrue 17th Apr 2014, 10:34 PM edit delete reply

Lexy is, indeed, pretty emotionless and logical - almost like an intelligent computer. No doubt she and Kali are the two androids Acantha is most familiar with.

I'd be curious to see Acantha's reaction if/when she meets New Troy androids on their own terms. In particular, meeting someone like Dolly, Ceci, or Ada.
Stormwind13 18th Apr 2014, 2:58 AM edit delete reply

Acantha will probably not believe that Dolly is an android. I mean Dolly looks so human, but she acts more dedicated than Maxus even. It will indeed be interesting how the two get along when they crash together.
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:05 PM edit delete reply

yes thats true and they are very diffrent :D Kali can be cold heartless and sometimes oddly caring.. Lexie is oddly caring all the time :D
Sheela 20th Apr 2014, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

Oddly enough, Lexy also have the potential to be extremely scary as well ... noone can torture a human better than a good doctor.
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 5:00 PM edit delete reply

Lexi has certain inhibitors to that sort of behaviour but yes.. Doctors make SCARY people at times :D
cattservant 17th Apr 2014, 11:37 PM edit delete reply

AHhhhh! runs after sheela with a squirt bottle of water :D :D Bad doggy! :D
cattservant 21st Apr 2014, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

Take a bucket, Sheela probably needs a bath!
Sheela 21st Apr 2014, 2:54 PM edit delete reply

Ah ha ha ha - But I run fast, fast !
You cannot keep up, neener neener ! :D
mjkj 18th Apr 2014, 12:37 AM edit delete reply


So sappy :D

Hehehehe, Acantha already knows Lynn pretty well, I wonder if the swimsuit will fit her

*hugs Acantha*
Stormwind13 18th Apr 2014, 2:53 AM edit delete reply

I think I developed a half dozen cavities just watching those two. So sweet. :-D

I would image the swimsuit would fit pretty well mjkj. I mean they are similar in size. Of course, if the suit is a bikini that would make it even easier to match up. :-)
velvetsanity 18th Apr 2014, 5:01 AM edit delete reply

Just made a comment on 'That Joke Page..." And it gave me an idea: maybe you two could have a caption/punchline contest. :)
jamie59 18th Apr 2014, 3:36 AM edit delete reply

Swimsuit?!? Swimsuit?!? Lynn you prude. You can only bath in skin.
xpacetrue 18th Apr 2014, 4:00 AM edit delete reply

I suspect that Lynn insists on a swimsuit only because Lexy and/or Acantha will be in the room to attend to her. I doubt Lynn has a habit of bathing or showering in a swimsuit back home. She's just uncomfortable with the situation. And, frankly, I can't really blame her.

"Prude" seems like an overreaction. Anyway, it's Acantha who's complaining about Maxus' "public" show of affection here, -not- Lynn.
Stormwind13 18th Apr 2014, 1:49 PM edit delete reply

To me Acantha is reacting like a teenage daughter would to her parents acting all lovey in front of a friend. I think she thinks of Irene and Maxus more as family than she does of her (psycho) half-brother, Douchebag. I think Irene at least thinks of her as the daughter she doesn't have (or is it just YET, CentComm? :-D).

Acantha isn't really unhappy about Irene and Maxus being amorous, but as a teenager she *HAS* to complain about it. :-D She probably IS a little embarrassed by it though.
cattservant 20th Apr 2014, 1:29 PM edit delete reply

It rattles a door she hasn't opened yet.
Stormwind13 18th Apr 2014, 1:41 PM edit delete reply

I would have been shocked if Lynn would have been able to overcome her upbringing enough to share a bath with anyone, jamie. Doing it in what nature provided and not freaking out would probably be beyond her right now. Not only is Lynn an only child, but New Troy didn't really prepare her for communal ANYTHING, I don't think.

Go back and look at how Lynn handled Acantha putting a friendly arm on her (Hey! no touching!, 10th May 2012 page).

And how freaked out she was by having to take a shower with Dr. Willis in the room (though in Lynn's defense she had just been kidnapped, shot with a stunner and hauled off to Hel... I mean Nova Roma can't say I really blame her).

Lynn definitely has some hang-ups, but they are largely cultural, I think. Not personal and in excess of the societal norms. :-)
Tokyo Rose 18th Apr 2014, 3:01 PM edit delete reply

This IS a "get warmed up and breathe some steam to clear out your sinuses" bath, rather than a "remove dirt from your filthy stank ass" bath. :D
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:07 PM edit delete reply

yeah pretty much what Rose said this is more tharaputic than scrub a dub :D
Sheela 20th Apr 2014, 4:34 PM edit delete reply

I'm kinda with Cattservant on this one though, it does rattle a door she hasn't opened yet, and given the situation, probably isn't too keen about opening just yet, considering her brother tried to force her "door" open.

Actually, that makes me wonder, does Acantha have a crush on some boy/girl yet?
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

Acantha has stayed away from making too many connections - they are weaknesses her brother could use against her :D
cattservant 21st Apr 2014, 12:26 AM edit delete reply

Another reason she isn't as emotionally developed.
Plus she's a real Princess and other factors come first.
Sheela 21st Apr 2014, 2:59 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, like ... "What boy/girl-friend can I bring around that Maxus won't punch in the face, Decidus won't throw in the torture chambers - AND - Kali won't stalk to no end ?"

Just about the only one that could pass that muster is the Archpriest Setorius simply because he's scary enough to simply stare all three down ... at the same time !
(and he's probably not interested in games like that to begin with)
highlander55 18th Apr 2014, 5:33 AM edit delete reply

Cent, Do the robots and androids of New Rome have the download port like they do in New Troy?
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:09 PM edit delete reply

Kali does not.. Lexi does not eather however Lexi has standard I/o Ports and can be adjusted or dowloaded ect just like a computer :D
KarToon12 18th Apr 2014, 5:52 AM edit delete reply

We should have a mini comic with more of those details. XD
mjkj 18th Apr 2014, 3:09 PM edit delete reply

What details do you mean? The bathing situation or Maxus' and Irene's relationship or...?
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:09 PM edit delete reply

oh im curious :D what ever do you speak of :D
VanEzzania 18th Apr 2014, 6:53 AM edit delete reply

Oh Irene....
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:09 PM edit delete reply

oh yes Irene isnt bashful at all! :D
Dragonrider 18th Apr 2014, 2:24 PM edit delete reply

Bet Irene's swim suits leave very little to the imagination.
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

maaaybe :D
xpacetrue 18th Apr 2014, 2:40 PM edit delete reply

Lexy's line has me wondering:
"If is is any consolation, your Highness's vital signs are stable."

Does Acantha have some sort of medical monitoring device (aside from the ring Aeneas gave her)? Or is Lexy's medical sensors so sensitive that she can pick them up from close proximity? In panel 2 Lexy isn't holding Acantha's hand to read heartbeat and bloodpressure... is she?
Tokyo Rose 18th Apr 2014, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

She can get a proximity reading. Also, Lexy is capable of subtle humor. :D
mjkj 18th Apr 2014, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

Yup, subtle humor package installed - check. :D
Stormwind13 20th Apr 2014, 1:09 PM edit delete reply

Back a few pages (31st March 2014, Positronic Automatonic harmonics) Lexine identified Lynn as having - "...the early symptoms of a mild rhinovirus infection..." I figured Lexine had to have some kind of built-in scanner at that point to identify it that quickly, xpacetrue. :-)
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

of course! humor is awesome :D
Sheela 20th Apr 2014, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

Humor ?
Then she needs to meet up with Cousin Avi for a humor check up.

Those are his preferred check ups and he takes them very seriously .. once he stops pranking you. :)
mjkj 18th Apr 2014, 3:03 PM edit delete reply

Contrary to the filler a few pages ago, it seems, from her question here, that Acantha is used to go without swimsuit, but Lynn is wanting one...

Stormwind13 20th Apr 2014, 1:03 PM edit delete reply

What Acantha is willing to do in her own home (and yes, I think she thinks of Irene's as home) and what she will do for public presentation are likely to be WORLDS apart, mjkj. :-)

Plus the artist has to avoid getting the nasty child pornography laws involved.

And those laws NEED to be nasty, as there are sick predators out there that prey on children as young as 4. :-p
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 1:15 PM edit delete reply

normally Acantha would take baths privately .. but shes also accustomed to having occasional helpers and or slaves.. but nudity and is not a HUGE deal in bath houses. now on the other hand It is reasonable to assume that Acantha WOULD wear a suit in a public place just as we do today. Lynn would be mortified at public nudity. no matter what the for .. unless she was very comfortable with the person shes with.

(( THE ARTIST DOES NOT CONDONE NUDITY OF UNDERAGE ACTORS !!! THE CGI ACTRESS THAT PLAYS ACANTHA IS 18 yeah thats the ticket legal disclamer in place :D ))
Stormwind13 20th Apr 2014, 3:54 PM edit delete reply

LOL CentComm. :-D
Sheela 20th Apr 2014, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

And the story pretty much started on the note of Lynn turning 18 as well. So, both are legal, that's not the issue.

But it has to fit into the comic as well, and the characteristics of the comic as well.
Or as some artists says, "The characters write themselves, I'm just along for the ride." :)
Centcomm 20th Apr 2014, 5:03 PM edit delete reply

Well Acantha story wise is sixteen almost seventeen .. points at cast page :D
