Today's comic: So, this page is an incredibly brief synopsis of events that occur in the What it Takes bonus story The Proposal, and will be the most it's explained here in the webcomic. If you want to know more about the call, the Flip, or that night, you can purchase the story and instantly download it for $5 using the button in the right sidebar over there. Read below for more details.
Here's the night Peter got the phone call. If I were Colbey, I'm not sure if I would be pissed, flattered or kind of creeped out that Peter did all this...likely just to find HER. Probably all of the above. More than a little creeped out though. More than a little evil mastermindish!
The SpiderForest comic of the week is Cetiya!
The Comic of the Week is a spotlight feature we're doing here at SpiderForest, where all participating members take one comic a week and link the cottage cheese out of it. As a collective, we don't make a big deal of making known we are SPIDERFOREST comics, and we're pretty happy with our casual link exchange at the top of the page. But admit it! The majority of you don't know what SpiderForest is, or what other comics also call the place home! Comic of the Week kinda fixes that.
So. Imagine a world not too different than our own, a few decades in the future, kinda of like the Matrix movies without the emo or overly-tight leather pants, where a kind of elite internet special forces live both a physical life and a virtual one. Not only that, but technology has progressed enough that people can buy and download magical talents. That's Cetiya. And those elite special forces are the main characters, who are roommates in a bunker, who are out to take down a crime syndicate while their dickovaboss distracts them with busywork. I suggest you start on this page and see if you like it. This one always make me choke on my tea. That may or may not be because I am programmed to sing that Vegetales song "Barbara Manatee" whenever I see the word "manatee."
Up front, I want to say that anything in these bonus comics is exactly that--a bonus! An illustrated extra! Not necessary to continue reading the story. What these stories ARE is a fleshed out, close up of events that have been mentioned in passing and will never really be part of the main story. The Arc 5 extension explains a lot more of why Scot tracked down Colbey, and what was going on in the background of Driftwood. The Proposal is the story of how Peter proposed to Colbey. And it's nothing nearly as gushy as it sounds (it's rather tragic actually...). Each of them is illustrated! They're regular size comic pages with 1-4 illustrations per page, with a bit more narration.
