Thank you for the new page, Cent =)

Great - I just hope Acantha will be fine... =S


I hope it will be a minor thing, Cent - stay well and take care ... *hugs*

Thank you for the page CentComm. Haven't lost your touch. :-)

Sigh, I was hoping you were DONE with hospitals for awhile. Like the next 50 years! :-7 Sounds like the Doctor wants to make sure nothing else is hiding out. I know you are SICK of hospitals though. ::HUGS::

What she said.
Sheela 19th Oct 2016, 12:33 PM edit delete reply

I bet Terri could use some of that 35th century medical medicine right about now ... maybe a new heart even.
Timotheus 19th Oct 2016, 10:38 AM edit delete reply

Just as a subject of purely idle speculation, but have you been having any feelings of self identification with Acantha?
Stormwind13 19th Oct 2016, 10:50 AM edit delete reply

Except that I'm pretty sure that Acantha's piece and ultimate fate were planned out well before Terri's current problems made themselves known.

It MIGHT be Karmic retribution for crimes against her characters! I've told her that she needs to be NICER to her characters. That got an GM's grin and an EVIL laugh. :-p
Tokyo Rose 19th Oct 2016, 3:28 PM edit delete reply

Ceci's death was in the pipeline when Cent went in for the bypass. Many very morbid jokes were made.
Dragonrider 19th Oct 2016, 4:41 PM edit delete reply

Please let Kyle run into the Murderturd on his way to the Hanger, failing that let silvers airpower zap his speeder from the sky.
Oberoten 23rd Oct 2016, 12:31 AM edit delete reply

Good. Morbid jokes are the best. I know, I have worked in hospitals. :)
Dragonrider 19th Oct 2016, 10:57 AM edit delete reply

Heart Caths aresoooo much fun NOT

Please take care of yourself, Welcome Bak but we can wait until health is no longer an issue.

So, from what I can tell this is render 2 of 3 from comic 1410? One more render for page 1410, then pages 1411, and 1424 to catch up.

Other comics I've seen have a "Bonus" section, where they archive filler pages and storys after a while, so as to keep them without interrupting the story for new readers. Not sure what all is possible with comicfury, but hopefully you can figure out something that works for both new and old readers.
DLKmusic 19th Oct 2016, 2:02 PM edit delete reply

From what I understand, it is their plan to post the guest comics underneath the 3D ones, but on the same page.

The feeling is that the guest art was just too good to get buried in a seperate section.
Dragonrider 19th Oct 2016, 11:28 AM edit delete reply

Just had a funny thought, TeeDee and Noctis should "Bond" over TeeDee carrying a cannon as a personal weapon. Also a bit surprised none of the pages had Noctis recognizing Dolly as the Super Android from New Troy.
Ryu Santos 19th Oct 2016, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
In that case I hope TeeDee didn't name the cannon James.
Dragonrider 19th Oct 2016, 8:33 PM edit delete reply

@Ryu Santos That was an absolutely despicable pun.
Gilrandir 19th Oct 2016, 2:45 PM edit delete reply
I strongly suspect that much of what Noctis recognizes, she does not necessarily verbalize. I am willing to bet money that Noctis recognizes Dolly as the one to turn in the bounty earlier and that wheels are turning.
Tokyo Rose 19th Oct 2016, 3:29 PM edit delete reply

Noctis doesn't miss much, let's just say.
Mark_L_A 20th Oct 2016, 12:14 PM edit delete reply

Noctis probably took her previous premonition about silver haired, green eyed Guardian and taken it to it's logical conclusion.
Ryu Santos 19th Oct 2016, 11:52 AM edit delete reply
IT'S ALIVE!!!!

Hope the cardiologist's find nothing wrong Cent.
Sheela 19th Oct 2016, 12:32 PM edit delete reply

Live .. LIVE !!!! Mua ha ha ha ha ha !!
I shall dub thee, Frau Blücher !

Tokyo Rose 19th Oct 2016, 3:30 PM edit delete reply

HOLY SHIT, Sheela, reference wins :)
Sheela 19th Oct 2016, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

Thankies! :)

But ... I'm showing my age again, aint I ?
Ryu Santos 19th Oct 2016, 5:44 PM edit delete reply
Age = time passed.
Its just a jump to the left. And then a step to the right. With your hands on your hips. You bring your knees in tight.But it's the pelvic thrust...that really drivers you insane. Let's do the time wrap again!
Dragonrider 19th Oct 2016, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

Sheela growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
oldarmourer 19th Oct 2016, 8:42 PM edit delete reply
if you haven't grown up by the time you're 40, you don't have to
Ryu Santos 19th Oct 2016, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
I resemble that remark.
StellarJay 20th Oct 2016, 2:41 AM edit delete reply

I don't mind getting old, but I thought it would have taken longer.
Sheela 20th Oct 2016, 5:09 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, time keeps passing by faster and faster. It's unfair!

Also, this growing up malarkey, what is that all about ?
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 2:35 PM edit delete reply
Its"the man" puttin' us down. That's what it is.
Evervigilant 19th Oct 2016, 12:00 PM edit delete reply
Ah good to see the characters not feeling so flat. :)

Maybe the doctor just wants to make sure that the left side of your heart doesn't get jealous of all the attention your right has received.

Seriously though. Better to check and be safe. I bet you are sick of seeing the doctor. No pun intended there. Still it is better to see him on good terms checking things to be safe than not and see him because something is wrong. Hope the new meds work and you get back to full strength and health soon.
Centcomm 20th Oct 2016, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

I think your right.. hah. ok thats funny.
oldarmourer 20th Oct 2016, 3:43 PM edit delete reply
if you're pondering the reason for the extra visits, engage him in some light conversation... find out his interests, see if he's planning on buying a new car...or a summer cottage...or a vacation...or if his kids are starting college...if he's paying for a divorce... ;)
Oberoten 23rd Oct 2016, 12:33 AM edit delete reply

Or if some really rich patient is in need of new kidneys...
Just_IDD 20th Oct 2016, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
Cent, look, Acantha took one to the heart and shes down for the count. You on the other hand have taken 2 and its only making you stronger!
Centcomm 23rd Oct 2016, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

hehe Im a cyborg! :D
Gilrandir 23rd Oct 2016, 12:09 PM edit delete reply
Oh? Does a prosthetic a cyborg make? For a while I considered that things like glasses, screws, wires, stents, etc. might count ... but if we examine the roots of the term -- cybernetic organism -- it seems to me that if you don't have some kind of active computational or sequencing device, you aren't really 'in the club' (so to speak). Of course, if you had a pacemaker installed ... ^_^

Just my opinion.
notStanley 19th Oct 2016, 12:29 PM edit delete reply

not another trip to surgery!?! Want to think they are just being over cautious after the previous troubles. First priority is take care of yourself, Cent. We will wait (might lose another keyboard to worn out F5 keys)
Matt Knab 19th Oct 2016, 1:48 PM edit delete reply

Ah geez, CC, I really hope this is near the end of your medical troubles.
Centcomm 20th Oct 2016, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

well at least it wont be a er visit..
Sheela 20th Oct 2016, 5:10 AM edit delete reply

Don't ..... jinx it !
Steven-Vincent 19th Oct 2016, 4:49 PM edit delete reply

Best wishes Cent. Hopefully this will be the last procedure. Though I know from dealing with this with my mom... there's always 'one more' they want to do.
KarToon12 19th Oct 2016, 6:39 PM edit delete reply

Awesome page! Hope everything goes well for you at the hospital. <3
HiFranc 19th Oct 2016, 11:10 PM edit delete reply

And, in the last panel, TeeDee tells them that they are doomed.
HiFranc 19th Oct 2016, 11:11 PM edit delete reply

Sending you good wishes. We're all here for you.
AeonOfTime 20th Oct 2016, 2:55 AM edit delete reply
Yay, it's back! And I see that Teedee is still her old self, I find that oddly reassuring.
Woodsman 20th Oct 2016, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
I didn't love waking up to a Nurse pressing a compress in my groin and a D Doctor standing by your head saying "Emergency Bypass Surgery". I'm still here 10 years later. They're doing much better stuff now. Great to see you back.
Centcomm 20th Oct 2016, 4:16 PM edit delete reply

Good news! - it was kinda a mix up.. Its JUST a office vist! then i find out info!
Stormwind13 20th Oct 2016, 5:44 PM edit delete reply

Yay! Glad to hear that, CentComm. Please take care of yourself so you don't need any more hospital visits!
Skweeee 20th Oct 2016, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

I love how things are moving forward here.

However, I'm distracted by your health situation as I am a worrier. I sincerely hope that everything will come out well for you and that everything will be okay. I'll be thinking about you.
Gilrandir 20th Oct 2016, 10:18 PM edit delete reply
When you visit the doctor, try to get copies of all the imaging of your chest cavity so you can use it as the basis for an educational amusement park teaching kids anatomy and biology by using rides and exhibits based on the layout of Terri's Torso. You can call it ...

Thoracic Park.
Just_IDD 20th Oct 2016, 10:45 PM edit delete reply
This needs more internets.
Gilrandir 20th Oct 2016, 11:19 PM edit delete reply
Forgive me, I'm not sure how to interpret that.
Dragonrider 21st Oct 2016, 1:40 AM edit delete reply

If possible, this is a worse pun than the one Ryu Santos used.Boo-Hiss Get The Hook!
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 2:41 PM edit delete reply
I thought it was a rather good pun.
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
And the theme song would be Billy Ray Cyrus' "Achy Breaky Heart".
Centcomm 21st Oct 2016, 3:43 PM edit delete reply

ohhh my .. god.. wow!!!
Gilrandir 21st Oct 2016, 3:57 PM edit delete reply
You a big Billy Ray Cyrus fan, @Centcomm?
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
Sorry Cent, couldn't help myself.
Just_IDD 23rd Oct 2016, 10:29 PM edit delete reply
@Ryu: That is a different song by the Four Tops.

Also, I've found that people only complain about puns when they are jealous about not thinking of the first!
Guest 24th Oct 2016, 10:06 AM edit delete reply
Aorta make puns like that illegal....
Dragonrider 20th Oct 2016, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

*Jumps up and down with excitement~~~N0 Heart Cath~~~No Heart Cath*
Gilrandir 20th Oct 2016, 11:22 PM edit delete reply
No Heart Caths, just Hearth Cats.
Sheela 21st Oct 2016, 5:34 AM edit delete reply

Cats made of hearts ?
Gilrandir 21st Oct 2016, 6:44 AM edit delete reply
The Queen of Hearts, she made some parts with pixels in array.
The Doc of Hearts looked at her parts, but in a different way.
The King of Hearts, who fancied tarts, saw that the Queen was sore.
The Knave of Hearts threw verbal darts and made her laugh the more.

(Cats made for hearths, @Sheela, not hearts. ^_^)
Sheela 21st Oct 2016, 11:32 AM edit delete reply

I seee ... I was getting mightily confused, and slightly hungry as well, so I chased a cat up into a tree.
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 2:50 PM edit delete reply
I guess that was a cat hearthic experience?
Gilrandir 21st Oct 2016, 3:58 PM edit delete reply
More like 'tree association'.
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 11:31 PM edit delete reply
Sheela gave that cat it's barking orders.
Dragonrider 21st Oct 2016, 4:08 PM edit delete reply

All right already you both have proved that those who use puns have groan up with a bad case of ill humours.
Ryu Santos 21st Oct 2016, 11:40 PM edit delete reply
I prefer good humours. They taste better.
Sheela 23rd Oct 2016, 12:36 AM edit delete reply

It's true, they do.

Though I prefer good seasonings.
It's amazing what a good seasoning can do to a cat. :)
StellarJay 23rd Oct 2016, 3:19 AM edit delete reply

(*Tosses an arm bone towards Sheela*) Here, I found this humerus.
Gilrandir 23rd Oct 2016, 8:44 AM edit delete reply
Oh, so now we have reached the end o' skeleton jokes? Just as hallowe'en is upon us. ("Get it off! Get it off! Eeeewwww!")
Ryu Santos 23rd Oct 2016, 11:43 AM edit delete reply
There's always more tibia nounced.
Gilrandir 23rd Oct 2016, 11:48 AM edit delete reply
Pa, tell us more.
Ryu Santos 23rd Oct 2016, 11:56 AM edit delete reply
Well..... the foot bone connected to the ankle bone. The ankle bone connected to the shin bone.....
Gilrandir 23rd Oct 2016, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
@Ryu Santos, are you acquainted with the works of Barry Longyear?
Ryu Santos 23rd Oct 2016, 12:26 PM edit delete reply
@Gilrandir, nope. Had to google him. I am familiar with Tom Lehrer
Gilrandir 23rd Oct 2016, 12:42 PM edit delete reply
If you enjoy science fiction, let me recommend to you his anthology, Circus World. Especially, in light of our recent exchange, the short story within titled "Dueling Clowns". ^_^

If you find you enjoy that, the prequel novel City Of Baraboo remains among my favorite novels ever, so you may want to check it out as well -- but you should read Circus World first.
Ryu Santos 23rd Oct 2016, 12:52 PM edit delete reply
I'll add that to my reading list.
Dragonrider 23rd Oct 2016, 10:50 PM edit delete reply

The foot bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the head bone,
Oh, hear the word of the Lord!

Dem bones, dem bones gonna walk aroun',
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun'
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun'
Oh, hear the word of the Lord.
Sheela 24th Oct 2016, 8:31 AM edit delete reply

Wait the Lord of bones is around again ?

Great, I've been looking for a good chewing bone for a while, and he ran away the last time he spotted me! :D
DLKmusic 20th Oct 2016, 10:45 PM edit delete reply

I am so happy to hear that, Cent! It's about time I heard some good news relating to doctors and hospitals!
Russ 21st Oct 2016, 11:42 AM edit delete reply
Cool new comic- is it out of sync with the previous ones? Are you intending to re-index at any point?

No big deal at all, still really liking what you're doing. Tee-dee is still the star, far as I'm concerned. :-)
Centcomm 21st Oct 2016, 3:42 PM edit delete reply

Im going to add skip points to put it back in order.. Ill get it worked out I promise!

Great post, @Jeryk! Glad to have you aboard!
Haegan2005 22nd Oct 2016, 5:56 PM edit delete reply

Good work as always Terri and Rose!

Glad it was just a checkup Terri. It could have been so much more and I suspect that you are done with living in interesting times.
Gilrandir 22nd Oct 2016, 7:48 PM edit delete reply
So, once again, inspiration has mugged me when I wasn't looking. You have been warned, but those with self-destructive tendencies may want to go here, then search in page for "baby got back", if necessary. Commentary is welcome and encouraged, including constructive recommendations for improvement. I only did the first part of the song (and omitted the spoken prologue). Posted it under art that seemed more appropriate, but provided a link here, because 'that's where the action is' at the time of this posting.
DLKmusic 22nd Oct 2016, 9:21 PM edit delete reply

LOL, Gil! We need to get a stage up for her to dance on... In the shape of a giant Mini-Gun!
Sheela 24th Oct 2016, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

Archive binge reading, are we ?
Gilrandir 24th Oct 2016, 8:44 AM edit delete reply
Not so much this time. When possible, I want to pair the lyrics with "appropriate art", and that scene was the one I remembered as TeeDee having her largest weapon. So, I only went poking around enough to find it. However, I am certainly not above an occasional stroll through the archives. ^_^
Dragonrider 25th Oct 2016, 10:19 AM edit delete reply

You know who we haven't seen and has been tracking Prince Douchebag, Miriako, Isn't it about time for her to show up grab Julia and save Acantha? Or will Julia, Miriaco and Company join our Merry Band of Mayhem and fly to Atta for their Med Facilities?
Timotheus 25th Oct 2016, 11:37 AM edit delete reply

But what of Naomi?
