Amid the site revamp, I just had to save this comment from the best artist on Comic Fury:

Great page!


...and my reply:
"Thanks for saying so. It means a lot coming from someone with your talents of great pagery."


This last panel wasn't even in the script! This is what happens when I try to draw SwordCat Knights while listening to Melissa Etheridge. "Cherry Avenue", indeed...

Kathryn's still missing the earring Erica recovered in the alley in issue #1 -- like a glass slipper.


Honestly? I'm filled with giddy gay butterflies of joy to be able to contribute such a cute and positive image to the much-maligned gay and lesbian culture. I've been trying in my own small ways to champion their dignity and human rights (starting at age 11 when I wore No on 9 buttons everywhere I went).

SCK isn't a "gay" book -- it's a human book, and some humans are gay, bi, Caitlyn Jenner, etc. I believe homosexuality is natural -- I mean, if it's good enough for penguins...

(And yeah, Arayna's a lesbian, but she's such a huge and total B-word...)


Erica's been hinting pretty hard at this all along. BTW, Erica's shirt reads: Jr. Artemites pledge: "Purity is Surety"

(If I've amused literally no one else in the world with that one, I've at least amused myself.)

...the Jr. Artemites being analogous to an old-fashioned King Arthur boys/girls club. From the Wikipedia King Arthur entry: "Arthur has also been used as a model for modern-day behaviour. In the 1930s, the Order of the Fellowship of the Knights of the Round Table was formed in Britain to promote Christian ideals and Arthurian notions of medieval chivalry. In the United States, hundreds of thousands of boys and girls joined Arthurian youth groups, such as the Knights of King Arthur, in which Arthur and his legends were promoted as wholesome exemplars." I figured Kathryn's Artemis' impact should be similar.

Two funny things: it's a chastity pledge shirt which Erica has cut down and made slutty, and Kathryn means "pure". God, I'm hilarious.

And yes, Erica is wearing smiley-face earrings -- if you look back at the preceding issues with an electron microscope, you'll see she's been wearing them all along... it must mean something.

Teehee.

Soup sock,
