As of Yesterday a little troll wandered by .. This little .. Person is no longer welcome here - If he tries to post via his CF account I will delete the comment - If he tries to post via guest ill delete the comment. SO new Rule here. You attack another comic or another user here im just going to delete the comment period.

IF this continues I will disable guest comments - this will force everyone to have a CF account to help prevent trolling like this.

This person has been reported and frankly I hope his account is banned. you may see some responses that make no sense thats because I deleted the trolls post.

Also DO not bash other comics on here and it should go without saying dont advertise other comics in such a way thats insulting to the comic you are posting on. Seriously.

Acantha ain't gonna leave the population of Nova Roma to Douchie's temper. She plans on getting Aeneas involved, Lynn will be instrumental to her plan, hopefully enough repair has been done for him to be effective.
xpacetrue 29th Oct 2015, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

It's pretty obvious that Acantha planned to get Aeneas involved. But I can't imagine how Lynn could be instrumental to her plan. What can Lynn do that nobody else can, other than act as a representative of New Troy (or a bargaining chip / hostage)? Kyle is a different story altogether and he is Lynn's boyfriend. But they still believe he's dead, so he can't be part of her plans.
HiFranc 29th Oct 2015, 9:54 PM edit delete reply

If he's willing to destroy an entire city to prevent his enemies win, what's Decimus going to do to one woman? I suspect that Acantha knows that NT haven't sent enough firepower to protect Lynn from Decimus's anger.
anonymous coward 29th Oct 2015, 9:59 PM edit delete reply
Acantha knows absolutely nothing about what New Troy assets are in Nova Roma besides what Dolly has just said. Don't let your speculation get ahead of the established facts, now.
HiFranc 29th Oct 2015, 11:13 PM edit delete reply

She knows that "a team" (not a division, or an army etc) is acting with a faction of local dissidents. It's doubtful that dissidents would work with a full scale invasion. Add to that the team is "securing the upper levels to facilitate ... extraction" says that it's a squad with a specific purpose rather than revenge. She also knows what forces New Rome has and Decimus's personality.

Acantha's intelligent and she's been taught what she needs to know to govern since she was a baby. It is likely that Decimus would throw everything he can to stop them even if the rest of the city goes to Hell.
Dragonrider 29th Oct 2015, 10:44 PM edit delete reply

Remember how Aeneas greeted Lynn as the daughter of Helios, plus the fact that, in defense of Acantha, she already smacked douchie upside the head; Aeneas has a great deal of respect for Lynn.
Centcomm 31st Oct 2015, 2:56 AM edit delete reply

That is correct Acantha has no intention of leaving Roma in the hands of her brother.
xpacetrue 29th Oct 2015, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

Am I the only one who thinks that camera-bot in panel 5 is more than a little significant to the story?

It's presence means that Aeneas sees and hears what is going on. And that means he's in the loop and now knows about Dolly, Ceci, and some of their goals/plans, including how they've now removed the tracking device. (It also means he heard that Kyle is presumed dead, at Decimus' hands, and that Lynn is still very distraught over that.)

Maybe, and maybe not: Aeneas' lucidity is questionable at best.

That actually argues in favor of his being part of the government. ;)
Stormwind13 30th Oct 2015, 6:15 AM edit delete reply

If (and that could be a mighty BIG if) Aeneas is lucid enough to be monitoring the feed, he could be flagging CeCi and Dolly as permitted into his realm. Since they have stated that they will protect Acantha in the presence of the camera bot, Aeneas might be willing to do that.
Tokyo Rose 30th Oct 2015, 3:16 PM edit delete reply

One might want to consider possible implications of the fact that the 'bot hasn't spoken at all since Lynn identified it, just before Arianna flipped her shit. There's been no reaction to the shit-flipping, no reaction to Dolly and Ceci showing up, or anything else.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 6:07 PM edit delete reply

True, Dolly and CeCi don't know who's controlling the camera bot.
They could probably make a good guess about it though.
Yorple 30th Oct 2015, 8:47 PM edit delete reply
I figured the camera bot was keeping quiet either to avoid freaking out Arianna any further. (or it's too polite to interrupt, or it's programming is too simple for much conversation beyond it's initial introduction, ...)
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

It seems quite likely that he stayed quiet to not freak Arianna out at first.
Though by know, I'm thinking he's staying quiet because he wants to figure out what their plans are first, before he adds his own confusion to the mix.

After all, he *knows* that he is insane. Scary stuff.

Welcome to the revolution, Dolly... What's a little regime change among good friends and other associated tunnel rats?

'Side's which - If Sheela doesn't get to light up Kyle's life, she's gonna be grumpy puppy!

Stormwind13 30th Oct 2015, 6:21 AM edit delete reply

Dolly really has NO interest in the revolution Tango Xray. Her interest is solely on getting Lynn to safety. The revolution might hinder that, or help it, but she has little interest in it, I think.
Tango Xray Actual 30th Oct 2015, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
And if Lynn commits to another course?
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, Dolly is fairly focused on getting Lynn the hell out of there.

Kyle on the other hand ... he can stay.
Stormwind13 31st Oct 2015, 6:34 AM edit delete reply

If Lynn commits to another course, Tango Xray? Dolly will override her (using guilt at how she left from New Troy or Calliope's concern for her) to get her to acquiescence. Dolly KNOWS Lynn better than Lynn knows Lynn, she knows which buttons to push to move her when she REALLY needs to.
The Old Scribe 29th Oct 2015, 9:30 PM edit delete reply

Acantha's acting like the princess and heir to the Nova Roma throne she is. Now that she has some firepower that will help her get to Aeneas, she wants to do it and usurp her douchebag brother before he gets the place nuked by a PO'd Centcomm. I also like how Dolly's going along with it (for now) because she knows Lynn wants to help her friend. CiCi's along for the ride, but there's still that matter of the shadow program Watchdog's got in reserve.
Pirtnac 29th Oct 2015, 10:20 PM edit delete reply
She's going to *listen* to her idea, but nothing has been decided yet. Considering Dolly's plan at the moment is "run past everyone, try not to get shot, then try not to get shot down" I suspect she's open to suggestions.
Stormwind13 30th Oct 2015, 6:27 AM edit delete reply

This! I agree, Dolly is gathering more information to improve the safety of getting Lynn home. Despite the information she has been fed, there are a great many things she doesn't know.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

Well, part of Dolly's plan is also "mow down anyone who gets in the way", and I think she would like an alternative to that.
No matter how good she is at asskicking, she don't really *like* killing people.
No matter how much they deserve it. Well, maybe Decimus .... and Kyle. >:)

And the gutters, Sheela. NEVER forget the gutters... Dolly certainly hasn't.
Sheela 31st Oct 2015, 10:38 AM edit delete reply

Dolly was perfectly content with just leaving the gutters alone.
It was the gutters that insisted upon a confrontation.
Stormwind13 1st Nov 2015, 6:00 PM edit delete reply

The third panel of Acid Test [8 April 2013] seems to indicate otherwise, Sheela. "Jackals. Vultures. Murders. Butchers." in her thoughts facing the gutters.

The follow up page, The soft option [10 April 2013], panel five indicates she REALLY wants to shoot them all... For the MISSION she was going to ignore them.

When they wouldn't though, Dolly enjoyed wasting them! Almost like she needed a release from a past ghost. :-)

Pirtnac 29th Oct 2015, 10:25 PM edit delete reply
I suspect that Acantha would play Tau, mainly because she might find Space Marine's fanatical rantings offputting. Or she'll get in to it and play Orks while being in character, but we'd have to record that for hilarity's sake.

Very practical of Dolly to at least listen to what Acantha might have to say.
King Mir 30th Oct 2015, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
She's doing more than listening. She's acknowledging Acantha's authority.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

Only if that authority has a good plan, if it's rubbish, then she's just a teenager.
King Mir 30th Oct 2015, 9:42 PM edit delete reply
That's probably true, but for now, she's let the princess get away with saying "that's not my plan" like it's up to her.

Dolly wont dismiss what Acantha has to say out of hand .. she knows better. Now if Acantha starts spewing nonsense Dolly wont be happy.

HiFranc 30th Oct 2015, 1:57 AM edit delete reply

I'm guessing that Acantha's plan is to take the tracker with them to Aeneas and leave it there when they leave.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:13 PM edit delete reply

Maybe the camera-bot is about ot have a fancy new gadget ? :D

Mark_L_A 30th Oct 2015, 2:20 AM edit delete reply

Dolly will listen to Acantha because she isn't as familiar with the lay of the land so to speak. She doesn't know the political nature of all the forces in play, she doesn't know who is, isn't or can be an ally or an enemy.

Acantha DOES know a lot of that. So Dolly will listen and while she might not like what Acantha has to say, Dolly can find out what other assets there are and other opportunities that can be taken advantage of.

So while Dolly might not agree to what Acantha wants to do, she might be able to reshape Acantha's plan of action to make it more advantageous.

Did that make sense?
DLKmusic 30th Oct 2015, 2:03 PM edit delete reply

Kinda what I was thinking, Mark, but there's also the point that Dolly doesn't know if it's a real plan, or if Acantha is another clueless Teen yet..

Best way to find out is to listen.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

Yes, it does make sense.
In a chaotic situation, your survival goes up by a significant margin, if you know what the enemy is doing.

Acantha may have valuable info that Dolly can use.
Greenwood Goat 30th Oct 2015, 2:36 AM edit delete reply
So, Acantha explains her plan...

Dolly: Are you sure this safe route into the palace is actually safe? And does a strap-on like that even exist?!

Acantha: Yes. And yes. Welcome to New Rome.

Dolly: And is broadcasting it live really a good idea???

Acantha: We have to show everyone the exact status of their deposed prince. Will you do it?

Dolly: No. This... sounds more like a job for-


Teedee: Hell, yeah!! Quick- what's the Lamod for "Say hello to my little friend!"? :-D

I think she is thinking about Aeneas kraznor. All the other thinking machines are just extensions of Roma's nightmare, which is the killer Aeneas.

Tokyo Rose 30th Oct 2015, 3:31 PM edit delete reply

She's thoroughly creeped out by Ceci. Remember, the Cassians are all designed to be on the intimidating side, with most of them in the vicinity of six feet tall and all of them having unusual physical traits of one sort or another (Kali's glazed-porcelain skin, Noctis's pallor, Malati's chromed eyes, Hrist's facial grooves, Nox's everything). Ceci was designed to look more like a cute, bouncy girl.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:17 PM edit delete reply

As Rose said, Arianna is properly creepeed out by now.

CeCi has just hit both the Uncanny Valley and the High Octane Nightmare Fuel buttons, at the same time.
Frankly, I suspect that Arianna just wants to run away, screamiing. But her loyalty, and trust, in Acantha is stopping her.
Stormwind13 30th Oct 2015, 7:10 AM edit delete reply

I thought CeCi was going to pick the lock, but instead it looks like she just had her nanos cut it open. No wonder that got hot!

Scary to be that close to that kind of power. What it could have done to Lynn's flesh is terrifying to contemplate!

Looks like Dolly thinks along similar lines as you, Sheela.

I still think Acantha will stay in Nova Roma to lead the insurrection, probably through Aeneas.

To be honest, though, Cent and Rose have a habit of fooling me.
Sheela 30th Oct 2015, 9:21 PM edit delete reply

Dolly is a sharp one, she is.
It took her mere moment to come up with that idea, obviously, her new brain is working quite nicely. :)

As for Aeneas, I think he will be key to foiling Decimus' failsafe plans, while Team Kill-em-All will handle the military.
Meanwhile, I'm guessing that Dolly gets to handle the Prince himself, once the failsafes are broken.

I can only assume that you're pimping a buddy's comic, since your "Spartan Idiots" comic demonstrates that your art style (if we can call it that; to be brutally truthful, I've seen better crayon drawings from nine-year-olds), is entirely different from that of "Wastelanders Anonymous". I'm all for supporting one's friends, but you're going about it in completely the wrong way.

You don't just say something half-assedly denigrating about our comic and then drop the other comic's name. Say that you think Cent's art looks like a series of high-resolution photographs of a cancer-riddled goat's colonoscopy. Say that my writing is as dull, clunky, and offensive as a rusted-out Chevrolet Express van with "Free Candy" spray-painted on the side and a shifty-eyed sex offender behind the wheel. Then claim that your pal's comic has the artistic beauty of a Renaissance masterpiece and a clever, incisive storyline worthy of Mark Twain. As it is, your endorsement might as well be a Sharpie scrawl on the wall of a filthy truck-stop restroom, next to the glory hole.

If you're going to jiggle a can of virtual Krylon (with a gesture that's no doubt extremely familiar to a sad and lonely wanker) and tag other people's comments sections, then at least put some fucking effort into it, you miserable, lazy excuse for a troll.

LOL Jacob. I second your comment. Rose was awfully gentle with him. I think she didn't open up fully on him because she is hoping he'll learn a LITTLE bit from that stupidity. If she had hit him the way that comment DESERVED... he would be vaporized! Then he would learn nothing more.

As for the comment itself, I would say he already achieved what he wanted, sadly. He got people to come to his pathetic excuse of a comic. His page views went up, probably significantly. If you want to treat that comment the way you should, completely ignore it. Don't go click on the mentioned comic and drive up their visitor count and page views. Don't give it any attention.

@SpartanStudios: You really should learn some manners and about a thing call Netiquette. I am quite sure if you PMed Cent or Rose and asked them politely to read your friends comic, they would do so, and if they enjoyed it, they both would likely have commented about it here. Drawing POSITIVE attention to said comic.

Instead you come here and leave a rude ignorant comment and draw NEGATIVE attention towards said comic.

Trust me, if I wished to be a horses butt with the readership of my blog and another blog I am a Co-Editor on, I could BURY said comic in false reports to have it removed from CF. Between the two blogs I have access to over 3 thousand readers a WEEK.

However, that would be rude, inconsiderate, and just plain mean.

It would also violate my own principles.

So please take this as a constructive criticism and not as a rant or a way to denigrate you.

Learn to have a positive influence through your net presence, not a negative influence.

And Seabiscuit, you have done nothing for which any blame should accrue. And I appreciate your coming here to explain that you had nothing to do with SS's behavior.

You just got added to my personal reading list just for that.

Well, we have an active group of commenteers over here, so it's hardly a surprise that they would comment on something like this.

Frankly, if you had said something like "Hey guys, there's this comic called Wastelanders Anonymous, it's awesome, go read it.".
People wouldn't have jumped so hard on your comment as they did.

But to say that it was "clearly better", thus indicating that this one isn't, is a pretty dick move on your part.
In many ways, you did a disfavor to Seabisquit, by acting so obnoxiously.

As for your own webcomic, well, it only has one page so far, so it's kinda hard for me to say anything about it.
But don't be too discouraged and keep up with it, it can only get better if you stick with it. :)

Data Chasers has been in the top 15 at the end of the past few months. Want it to START there too.

I vote every night before heading to bed here and for "Evon". I'd vote earlier and more often but the computer won't let me.

I'm new to Top Web so I don't know the norm. I would think a comic would begin one month where it was the previous month. Guess not.

Resets to NO votes at the beginning of each month, chk.

So getting to No.20 without having published a comic seems pretty good.
Stormwind13 1st Nov 2015, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

Without a page in November, yes chk; however, the (EVIL) creator duo have posted LOTS of comics... Still up to 1320 pages after all. :-)
