Uh oh, shit is going down!

Hopefully this comic is updating automatically on Saturday, otherwise I’m going to be pissed cuz I totally hauled ass to finish it by Friday morning. Anyways, to save you debating over the weekend without me I’ll predict some q/a

Why does Kiz looks disproportionate in panel 2
Cuz I crazy suck at foreshortening torsos.
Why does _(something else)_ look so weird?
I make mistakes. A lot, haha. Let me know and I’ll (possibly) fix it, as usual.
Is that dude wearing a dress or something?
No, its traditional to wear a long smock thing on Sundays for his culture (Carissi).
If today is Sunday, then yesterday was Saturday. Why were they working on Saturday?
Cuz in real life sometimes you have to work weekends D:
They’re breaking the 4th wall in the last panel by staring directly into the camera!
Thats not a question!!!

Only 9 more pages left in the chapter!!! Please keep up with voting, we’ve slipped to #7 in the last week! Not that it matters a lot, but I guess I suffer from something of a competitive spirit >_>

Next page on Wednesday! Exclamation points!!!!!

    HOMG PINTER. SO. ATTRAAAAACTIVE. :D

  • Hmm, Either Kiz is not expecting much of a fight, or he’s not a good knife fighter; he’s holding that blade all wrong. I like to think it’s because he thinks he’s all that. Kiz da Shiz! XD Meh, he’s a bully, and all bullies think they’re better than they are.

    He’s still going to get it handed to him in a basket with a bow on top, tho, knife or no knife. I have faith in this, yes I do. hehehehe

    Good psycho look on Kiz’s face in panel 2; he looks nicely deranged.

    • Naktarr

      Wow yeah he looks like he’s trying to hold it like a tea cup XD pinky stuck out and everything.
      No, I can see what’s up – the knife is drawn at the wrong angle, if it was sitting in Kiz’s palm right the blade would be sharp edge facing us, which is an entirely weird angle and I can’t blame Alex for drawing it this way instead – plus the link in with old ladies drinking tea amuses me XD

      • If you look at how Kiz grabs the knife in the first panel, that’s how a serious knife fighter would continue to hold the blade. The way Kiz is holding it in the following panels tells me that he doesn’t consider Pinter to be a threat (especially not with Blondie there to un-even the fight). One good kick or b-smack from Pinter will knock that blade right outta Kiz’s hand.

        This is not a criticism of alex’s art at all; this is an appreciation of how simply elegant her depiction of Kiz’s jerk-faceness is. <3

        • charles

          I gues Kiz just isn’t a serious or professional knife fighter. He must be a woodsman or something *lol*

          Then again, the extended pinky does suggest a more refined up-bringing unusual for the average woodsman…

          *PMSL* damn you guys come up with some strange nit-picks *lol*

    • lol damn you people can really kick my ass pretty good sometimes XD I was hoping nobody would notice the knife holding… The main problem is that the way he’s holding it in panel 2 makes no sense given the position of his hand in panel 1 (maybe he tossed it the other direction when nobody was looking… like when you’re making pancakes). I had to quickly google what the holding it should look like but I couldn’t find many good pics so I kind of winged it. Sorry his pinky looks weird, I had to crop the lines on that panel but its supposed to look more like he’s holding it with his palm vs having his fingers wrapped tightly around it. Anyways yeah I suck XD lol

      • SHUT UP YOU DO NOT SUCK >C

      • *sigh* YOU DO NOT SUCK.

        I love the way you drew his knife skillz! He’s a a total jerk-faced dipwad, and the way he’s approaching Pint shows it! Relax; you did a great job!

  • Lhorkan

    Since they couldn’t get Angora, the blonde dude is surprize buttsecksing Pinter! :O Just look at his face in the last panel, he knows bad things are about to happen.

  • DoggySpew

    I see nothing wrong with the foreshortening of the torso of Kiz. He looks like exactly how he talks in that panel (The “You want a piece of me, punk? ” pose)

  • The Pasha

    Kiz combines the three things I like most, 1. Knives 2. Crazy people 3. Crazy guys with knives

  • Sal Paradise

    Sigh… I didn’t mean to create a big deal about the eye-lines and the fourth wall. Like I responded, I believe in absolute ownership direction and decision. So don’t poke me too hard on that comment, OK? lol ;)

    But since you said:

    Why does _(something else)_ look so weird?
    I make mistakes. A lot, haha. Let me know and I’ll (possibly) fix it, as usual.

    I would like to say again in an entirely different context that in the first panel here, the eye-line of Pinter seems really odd. He’s in a physically violent direct confrontation with Kiz in that panel… but he’s looking at something else entirely. The eye-line for Pinter is somewhere really weird, and again, I’m distracted.

    Only a few other people said these eye-lines distract them about your panels, but I think it could be a big issue that can plague any artist down the road, so I’m trying to be thoughtful in letting you know. All it takes is a quick change of where the pupils are located within the whites of the eyes and you are done. If you want to change more, like the angle of the body, hey, you are the artist.

    You really seem to appreciate constructive criticism, which is a great quality. It will get you far.

    As for the haters out there, there’s not reason to be nasty towards me or anyone else. We all read and comment on this comic because we LOVE it. So don’t get nasty!

    Peace ;)

    • Haha, I’m glad you have a sense of humor about it XD

      Yes, Pinter’s eyeline is different… He’s staring at something different than the other two (you’ll see what it is in the next page).

  • Sal Paradise

    (p.s. – In all the other panels, the eye-lines match up perfectly! Beautiful! In the third panel those pupils within the eyes are dead on looking right at each other. Prime example.

    And in the fourth panel, all three characters eye-lines match. They are all looking at the same thing. The pupils within the eyes are clearly looking at the same object/person, and their body language reflects it. Wonderful.

    When the eye-lines don’t match or don’t make sense, it just looks like characters are looking at: what? And it makes the readers/viewers wonder: why? Not all of them all of them all the time. But enough of them to lose a rhythm while reading, to drop their pace because of a flow issue.

    Much love and appreciation!)

    • yim-yam

      you kind of bother me sir

  • Mai

    Love Pinter’s expression in the third panel. <3

    And the fourth wall thing – I honestly hadn’t noticed they were looking straight at the camera. Now when I look at it, it looks like they’re all staring at me… especially the blond dude. Stop it, guys! It’s creeping me out! D: I feel like I’ve just walked in on a mugging… Aaaaawkward!

    • Quick! Let’s call the cops! Or steal their shoes >>

  • Amber

    This is getting too exciting! I’m getting slightly obsessive. :) Anyway, I love the expressions in this, especially Kiz’s crazy psycho face in the second panel. Looking forward to more!

  • radishey

    Those EYES. You’re going to give me nightmares. And I don’t care :D

  • Allison

    Kiz, you’ve got problems.

  • Shrimpy

    @Chloe: YOU READ MY MIND.

    Great page as always! =D Just got into this last week and admittedly, I’m hooked!

  • whooomeek

    You did it! UPDATE!! WOOHOO!!! :D
    and lol, breaking the fourth wall? Really? But isn’t it kinda obvious that they’re looking at something off screen.. XD
    I’m really jumping on the Pinter fanwagon with this page, specifically with panel 1 cos of the chivalry! And OMG what’s gonna happen next??? I’m dying for your next update!
    Also, “stuffing” (?!) D8 Kiz’s vocab is disturbing.

    • lol You have no idea how many times I had to rewrite Kiz’s lines XD I use a lot of euphemisms cuz I don’t want to drag out the nasty words unless I really have to…

      • whoooomeek

        Wow, i would’ve never guessed! It reads really smoothly and naturally.
        Plus it totally sounds like a douche-baggery thing to say… which stays true to his character.

  • Pinter’s still got his bottle; time to 1UP!

  • sweet_gardenia

    I say it’s time to shatter a bottle dramatically and rumble bar-style, Pinter old boy

    oh wait no that would be a tragic waste of alcohol :C

    IF THAT IS ANGORA AND IF SHE’S DOING WHAT I THINK SHE MIGHT BE DOING I AM GOING TO LAUGH IN HORROR 8D D8

  • Haah, I think your question prediction is right on…though looking through the comments it seems people are already finding other things to nitpick on. O__O

    As it is, I love that first panel. You’ve really captured this great morning light. It’s wonderful to see you improve comic to comic- you’re really getting very good at this! I wonder, do you plan out colors/lighting beforehand, or just come up with them as you’re sitting down to color?

    • Mm, well I have a general color scheme in my head. But sometimes it takes me a while to get it right (if you look at the first few pages the jungle looks more blue than I think it should be…). And of course I have to keep some colors consistent. For this page I had to keep going back to reference page 10 or whatever page it was that is somewhat similar…

  • Aw man, EXCITING. Stuff I like about this page:
    DANGER;
    Kiz’s wacky “I’MNA CUT YOU BITCH” face in the second panel;
    Pinter’s wacky “WAIT, CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THIS?” expression in the third panel;
    how well-drawn that knife is;
    Kiz looks better with a shirt;
    so does Pinter;
    the shades of brown on Pinter’s jacket are really nice;
    Hey look, is that the first Carissi since we started? Sweet;
    Kiz is freaking out to a murderous extent because he can’t get ladies, which is both just and hilarious; ETC.

    This is most definitely my favorite page yet. Keep up the good work, see you when you get back. (PS I agree with everyone, one of those jars of moonshine needs to be broken over Kiz’s thick skull)

  • Evan

    I told you they were gonna rape Pinter! Also, my bio teacher can suck it! He was wrong about the elusive jungle albino.

  • melopiggy

    oh wait, nevermind. I was just confused!

  • marinatedfish

    Creepy, updates from beyond the grave?! uh
    Sharing. NOW Kis must go down. Definitely.
    Pinter, remember the clams!

  • Veitstanz

    I hate Kiz. And that’s good since I don’t get a “Well, we kinda need something like a villain here, so that guy does bad stuff”-feeling, but more of a “OMG what an ASS D:”-feeling.
    If that makes sense. What I’m trying to say is that he’s authentic. or something.

    And I’m a bit afraid of him, too.

    • XD I guess this is the boss battle for this chapter, but Kiz isn’t a recurring guy or anything! Just a hurdle to jump over for now :)

  • Neo

    Kiz is a dooooouchebag.
    Also, Pinter’s expressions make me lol.
    xD <3

  • Otaku-sama

    I can’t wait! I can’t wait! what did they found? what did they found? XD

  • Laurens

    I think it’s a nice effect when all the eyes are in the reader’s direction. It creates the impression of being in the place of whatever they’re looking at, like looking through the eyes of who said ‘look at this!’ without revealing it yet. If someone says it’s like they’re looking right at you (yes, YOU) then they’re simply not living the story enough. :D

  • How old is Angora, by the way? It’s not in the FAQ

    omg such suspense

  • Maria

    I couldn’t help but laugh when I thought of how funny it would be if Kiz cut his belt off while taking the knife out. Then having Kiz’s pants fall down right when he is trying to act so tough. Lol!!

  • I love Kiz’s expression in the second panel, its just, so perfect for the mood, and the message thats being sent across, “I am angry AND I have the upper hand HAHAHAHAHAHA I HAS EGO!” hehe.

    I have no complaints. I actually like how the torso’s came out, looks fine. Some of the coloring on Pinter seems a little vibrant compared to everyone else in the last three panels though.

  • Oh wait… Pinter belongs to the Carissi, right? DDD: *has read story plot *

    Also, Kiz looks like a maniac <3… xD

    • Ahaha, no Pinter is a Santri XD Carissi are the blonde ones.

  • Aw Pinter…you’re such a sweetie!

    Ohmai. What are they looking at? :o

  • zombieballerina

    XD Beautiful page as always, plus lots of action in it! Is it just me or does the black really add to the crazy look?

  • SecretWindow

    Alright, I’ve been trying to help myself through the entire comic, but I’ve fallen victim to loving Pinter (and developing a tiny crush on him). Love that he defends Angora!
    <3

    I’m loving this page!
    Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  • Cedarwolf22

    FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT

    My bet is on blondie being the first to kick it >8(

  • Kate

    Well that did it. I officially love this comic. Dunno why this page pushed it into my favorites, but it did!

  • Steffyanie

    Oh lord. Not only do I love this comic (Extremely so, at that. I get extremely happy when it updates. It’s just so great! Eee~), I adore the people who read it! The comments are always so fun and give me a good laugh, haha. And it’s good to see I’m not the only one in love with Pinter. I have such a giant crush on him. orz

    I don’t even know that I can point out anything bad about this comic(Just this one page, or the comic as a whole). I love it dearly.
    A-and I think that’s Angora! Coming to save Pinter, yaaay!

    Ps, my friend reads this as well. He pronounces Pinter as Pie-nter while I say it P-int-er, how exactly how it’s spelled. Which way IS is supposed to be? o:

    • Luzerne

      I say it like you do, but now that I think about it, the way your friend says it is probably the correct one. “Gimme a pint (pie-nt)” usually means “Gimme a beer.” Since Pinter’s everybody’s favourite alcoholic…

      • Steffyanie

        Right, right. Haha.
        I keep saying, “okay, you can be right, but he’s still just Pinter!”

      • Hah! That’s funny.

    • Betsy

      Alex said sometime last week or so that it’s like printer without the r. Sooooo, you’re right!! haha

      And to whoever above, I don’t think Pinter’s from the same group as blondie (Carissi), bc he has the brown nose. I think it might say in the wiki, but I’m too lazy to go check before finishing my reply.

    • Its supposed to be the sway your friend says, it rhymes with “printer!” Haha… he actually wasn’t an alcoholic when I first made his character, so the “pint” association is just a happy/ unhappy coincidence :)

      And I’m glad you like the comic ;3;

      • Steffyanie

        Ahaha, yes! Score for me!
        Thank you for the replies, haha. <3

  • I want to break the fourth wall…

  • tam

    Kiz’s crazy face xD Shiiiii-
    Kiz’s mental narration: “I’munna cut’cha! Oho, am I gonna cut’cha. See this knife? Huh? See it? BAM! Ded.”

    You just love to hate ‘im.
    My guesses for the next page: Either a 3rd gangsta discovered evidence of Angora’s visit, or Angora’s cooked up some hilarious distraction for Pinter’s escape.

  • r4ck3d

    I vote every time you post. Love it. Love the story. If people find artistic errors.. they’re being way too critical. The art is beautiful, the story line is great.. and I really hope Pinter doesn’t get the shit beat out of him.

  • Love you. Love your art. Love this comic.

    Keep it up. <3

  • Calcumon

    Cripes! That Kiz, he’s bad news! But it’s hard to hate him, depraved as he is. His lust, and his willingness to rape, murder and cut work a little early to satisfy that lust, is a stark contrast to Angora’s innocence. It’s interesting!

    And Pinter! He’s a pretty good guy, and his interactions with Kiz show it. He’s not a saint, but he’s very… human. That’s the impression I get.

    Oh! This is my first time commenting — I just want to say, I really enjoy this comic! It’s my dream to write a webcomic one day, and The Meek is very inspiring! : )

    • Thats a great interpretation of the characters. I try to write my chars as being more than just good or bad, though the could be definitely classified as such. Thanks for commenting! (and good luck with your own comic!)

  • I think the only thing that’s weird is all the clothes! I miss the nekkid pages hahahah X]

    other than that, this is simply beautiful!
    great job!

  • zuziako

    Love…this…needs… to…vote…more…

  • Sweartoad

    I am getting all hot and bothered by … THE HANDS. Seriously. Well-drawn hands are so freaking hard and I love them and Kiz’s hand in the first panel is making me all tingly :D :D :D :D

    HERE!!! HAVE SOME MORE EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!11!!!1@

  • LMP

    kiz has a very dirty mouth
    shame

    awesome page! ^^ keep it up

  • Karrey

    Go Pinter!
    Sorry for not commenting lately, have been moving and such. I am glad to finally catch up with the Meek! <3

  • Filipe

    Wow, a possible rape didn’t occur to me before I read the vote incentive for today and then this forum.

  • Akana

    Did his hat disappear, or is it just that you can’t see it?

    • Oh crap, I forgot to color it XD Thanks for pointing that out!

  • rainey

    It’s ok, Pinter can deflect knives with his MOOBS OF STEEL.

    Kiz’s crazyface is going to give me nightmares.

    • yim-yam

      HOORAY FOR STEEL BITCH TITS!

  • Jay

    …Am I the only one who thinks it’s Ironic they’re dressed up nice for Sunday and they’re about to gut some guy? Jerks.

    • Hahahaha yeah I know XD They’re probably planning on sneaking into service after they’re done too.

  • Umm, someone’s gone crazy? D: I mean, that face is pretty freaky.

    • Jay

      And the black eye really finishes the look, yeah?

  • yim-yam

    HAHA! way to get at that annoying 4th wall guy fromm lastpage!

  • Emperial

    Ahaha, looking at the camera does not automatically equal breaking the fourth wall. Where do people come up with this stuff? Sal doesn’t seem to actually realize what the term “breaking the fourth wall” means. Eye lines can be discussed to death all day long, but just because a character looks into the camera doesn’t mean the fourth wall has been broken. And there’s no rule that says character can’t look into the camera; it happens all the time in TV and movies. Just pick a channel and start watching.

    Anyway, as a first-year film student can no doubt tell you, eye lines don’t even look right when they’re totally dead-on correct in reality. That’s why we cheat eye lines in TV/film. Eye lines are troublesome all over the place. I’m a little amazed at how many people seem utterly obsessed and distracted by them in illustrative form, though. Really?? I wonder if watching TV/film is as problematic? Like, do people sit there watching Lord of the Rings and go, “ARGH I CANNOT STAND THESE EYE LINES! I should complain to Peter Jackson about it.” (Okay, I’m done counter-ranting.)

    By the way, who is tall-blonde-and-probably-single? Does he have a name? A post code where I can track him? A preference in underwear style? 8D

    And I’ve been meaning to tell you that since I started reading the comic I realized Angora and n’Barit not only both have green hair, they have the same green-brown eyes! That is so weird! (You probably noticed that when you drew n’Barit, but as I’ve not drawn Angora… I’m a bit late to the party.) Have we been subliminally tapped into each other’s subconciousnesses for more years than we’ve known one another?

    • Hahaha yeah I’m not too sure about the eyes fixation either. Unless its totally glaring I can usually forgive small errors. Theres this horrible depression commercial where the woman is staring at a little walking doll that as obviously CG’d in and she’s staring like… to its left XC I get annoyed at that, haha.

      And yes, we are definitely mentally connected :3 Though I think n’Barit has more in common with Luca than Angora XD

  • *regarding the last pannel*
    I’m actually naked, that’s why they’re looking at me.

  • Chameleon Kid

    Y’know, I never considered it breaking the fourth wall…unless they were directly speaking to the author or reader…But barring that, it’s just another camera shot and angle. =)

    I didn’t think Kiz looked disproportionate in panel 2. (But then again, I suck at anatomy for the most part, so I suppose that doesn’t mean much.) XD

    It’s awful when guys aren’t “manly” enough to take you on their own. It’s SO unfair when you get someone to come up behind you and hold your arms so you can’t runaway or do any damage. >,<

    (That’s right Kiz, I’m challenging your “manliness.”) *snicker*

  • Cookie Monster

    The guy with the blonde hair has barely been introduced and already I know he’s a douche.

    • Haha.

      • Cookie Monster

        Really, though! He just looks it! Tall and skinny, and the straight blonde hair that’s parted in the middle!

        No offense to anybody who fits those criteria.

        • Aly

          looool. no offense but people who look like that typically are douchebags, ha

          • Kenni

            Leon Kennedy: D’:! But but…I’m not a douche…am I Ada?

            Ada: …..*leaves*

            Leon: ;_; Ada WAIT O:<

  • Sebastian

    Great page as always!
    This is getting more interesting by the page!

  • Jenny

    That’s right Pinter! Stand up for Andora’s honor! XD Whatta guy!

  • Jenny

    Whoops I meant to type “Angora.” O_O Still! Pinter’s turning out to be a crabby drunk but actually a nice guy.

  • kmon look what =O???
    xD the suspence is killing me lol!

  • I can’t wait till wednesday ;___;! <3

  • Anonymous

    You seem to consistently refer to mistakes in your pages that you’ve made. For example this week you referred to foreshortening trouble with Kiz, which by the way, I don’t see. If addressing these mistakes helps you improve you’re ability than by all means continue, however you shouldn’t worry about the reader catching them so much. All but the most glaring mistakes will usually go unnoticed by the reader.

    I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far, keep up the excellent work.

    • Well to make a bio metaphor, you can only gain muscle mass by breaking the fibers of your existing muscle… Or you can strengthen a chain by breaking the weak links or whatever. It helps me to crit my stuff all the time, otherwise I might get complacent! Hopefully its not too annoying to you readers X3

  • Kiz needs an emergency trip to the red light district of the nearest town. Seriously, next he’s going to start bonking coconuts.

    • lolll ugh bad mental image!

  • Lunalover009

    *yawn* sorry i’m reading this at 2 in the morning, it good on my sleep deprived mind…..

  • Tsubane

    Your foreshortening’s functional in the second panel. I think you just put the shirt wrinkle in a strange place, which makes it look trippy. It will probably be an easy fix. n_n
    (By the way, I’ve been stalking this comic since it began- I just never commented because I’m a lurker ♥)

    Also, this comic is amazing, and I watch this page more closely than I did the Fullmetal Alchemist page when I was way into that. x’D

    • Nikki

      Ditto the lurker thing!!!

      Looooove the comic sooo much!!! And the characters are wonderful; perky naked without-bashfulness heroine, a kind flubby drunk with moobs, and the skinny pretty-boy meanieheads! Perfectness! Too many comics have heros with waaayyy too much sex appeal. The…realisticness (kinda? as far as characters go? Aside from the green hair?) of your characters is sooo refreshing.

      • Haha, I’m glad you’re enjoying them! Regular people can be heroic too…

  • Lanie

    Kiz’s eyes in the second panel are the stuff of nightmares.

  • Zizzee

    Your comic is lovely :)

  • Snooty

    I have just found this today, via Johnny Wander, via Questionable Content (I’m on an art adventure).

    I’m entranced. The art is stunning (Prints! Prints for my wall!) and the story line is going to do much to feed my love of fantasy that has been starved of good reading material of late.

    • Mihoru Nanakaru

      Same here, hehe. Same path and all, even. ^^ Love the comic (and sorry for broken lines; posting/reading with the Wii). Can’t wait to see more!

      • Thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Thank goodness for page jumping XD Thats how I find a lot of the stuff I read too…

      Glad you like the art, and I hope you’ll like where the story is going as well!

  • Just Popping In

    Tall, blond and handsome! I’m digging those of Carissi descent. (Pinter’s not half bad either) MOAR plz :3

    I love the cultural back ground behind all your characters. It really brings them to life. I love it when you put those little “Fun Fact!” stuff in there.

  • lex

    Ha. I’m totally on the same page as Snooty up there. I was just looking at QC, then I found Johnny Wander, then voila! I ended up here, and already I love it! <3

    • Haha, awesome XD Hope you’ll stick around!

  • Chanel the Bell

    So, I totally think it’s Andora doing some trick with the alcohol cans. Like she’s juggling them, or she’s balancing fifty of them on her body. I totally don’t think it’s her being nekkid. She doesn’t even realize that nekkidness is a bad thing, and she probably didn’t even know why those guys were really chasing her early on.
    …or did she?
    xD
    I’m just assuming a whole bunch of stuff.
    I’m just too much of a kid for her to use her body to distract somebody.
    AMIRIGHT?!

    • Chanel the Bell

      I mean SHE’S TOO MUCH OF A KID.

      -correction-

    • Haha, you’re right XD About her intentions at least, she doesn’t really get what the big deal is. She needs to grow up a little (or a lot)

  • Leech

    *Lurks* *Stares* …… Great comic !! *Flees and hides behind a tree plant to lurk some more*

  • Erica

    Mannn I’m so obsessed with this comic. I check for updates even when I KNOW there won’t be any. XD

    • Neverfilledvoid

      Oh mai! I feel the same XD I check twice a day! If there aren’t any new pages, I feel satisfied to give a vote fot top web comics ^^,

  • STUFFIN
    IT

  • Jenny

    (I just noticed the updated shading on the previous page. :) Very nice. He does look a lot more fleshed out.)

  • Amber BC

    This is real interesting. At least, it keeps my interest :p

    3 thumbs up! ( but only if I had another hand…)

    Anywhozzle, this is good and now I have something to look forward to since school is out :D
    (You’d think that they would have new episodes for a show during the summer, when people ACTUALLY HAVE TIME!! D=)

    And Kiz doesn’t look disproportionate, but psychotic O_o

  • Carissa

    I just found my way here via the same path (QC and Wander) and I’ve got to say I’m pretty impressed with the quality so far. I’m liking the characters and I have to admit even the douchebags are good elements, but this Carissi business….

    Am I a messiah and don’t know it?

  • Blanktip

    Just gets better and better. I’d sure hit Kiz again. Not the first time I beat somebody down that had a knife. Plus I love your character names.

  • lol @ vote incentive…RL, lol…
    Ah…you’re artwork is lovely…

  • People shouldn’t harass Pinter. It’s just. not. right.

    I enjoy Kiz’s manic expression and speech in the second panel a little too much. Him going from cool and collected to “GON’ CUT A BITCH” so quickly is amusing indeed.

    Lurker here, I’ve been enjoying The Meek ever since stumbling upon it a week or two ago. It’s the first webcomic to have grabbed my attention and kept it so quickly!

  • I went to see UP yesterday and Dug, the talking dog in it, reminded me of Pinter.
    Don’t know why! But it did.
    By the way, i love your work.
    Keep it up!

    isn’t it Wednesday already? lol I know it is for me it’s already almost 10 am ^_^; I’m antsy because I wanna see what happens next! lol :P

  • I’m finally back in the country and can read this again! Ah, Pinter….I’ve missed you!

    I actually think the way Kiz holds the knife in panel two works really well in context. I feel like he’s one of those douchebags that’s going to toss it from one hand to the other repeatedly to show how awesome they are at holding a knife. The way he’s holding it in the last panel, however, strikes me as a bit odd.

    Anyway, I’ve already placed my vote for the day and I’m looking forward to the next page. ^_^

    Wow! just stumbled on the link from johnny wander, this stuff is amazing – I just read all the way from page 1 to get caught up, and I’m hooked :3
    It kind of makes me think of some of studio ghibli’s stuff, like the whole eco-fairytale thing. Love it!

  • [b]Next page on Wednesday! Exclamation points!!!!![/b]
    Today is Wednesday :3
    I am eagerly awaiting patiently for the next page >.<;

    • Kris

      lol i was wondering the same thing it’s already 1 pm on Wednesday here ;)

  • Wow, so I really shouldn’t have looked up “stufifng” on urban dictionary…

  • Hazel

    Nuuu! Comic! :< (Ahem, yeah. So I went on a bit of a weekend Meek binge with devouring of dA gallery, sketch journal, wiki and all related. More fix now please!)

    Found this comic thanks to…Johnny Wander? Methinks. Anyway, love it. LOVE the art, but of course you’ve heard that a hundred times before. Still, it’s pretty bitchin’.
    I’m really intrigued by the story from an anthropological standpoint. A logging community of mostly men: gender issues, environmentalism, male-dominated society (heh, what’s new), every character searching for something…an answer, relief, comfort, whatever.
    Really great.
    I also don’t get what the issue was with the nudity in the beginning. Yeah, it’s a naked girl. Don’t we see naked girls in our pop culture every day? I know I’m being slightly hypocritical in bringing up the topic again 34 pages after it started, but oh well. Maybe I’m just not as surprised by nudity as some. And the rape issue? Um…doesn’t that happen every day? People who are offended (without having a personal traumatic reason) need to wake up and smell the reality. Welcome to human nature 101; please take your seats.
    :D Kay! I’m done being pointed.
    Anyway, magnificent comic; can’t wait to read more!

  • Okay – this is the webcomic I have been looking for .. since I started reading webcomics..(okay, I only started reading webcomics like two months ago).
    ANyway, I just wanted to say, I started reading and I could’nt stop till the last page – must..have…more…!!
    VOTED!!

  • SheaO

    jeez there is like 50 billion comments on this page! I just wanted to say that I am loving the line work on this page. The hands and arms especially. Oh and I TOTALLY noticed that saweeet detail you included on that bowie-esk knife. Were you looking at one? Because Ive noticed cartoonists rarely put that much REALISTIC detail into a knife.
    btw, LOVE your comic, mate

  • Silver Lady

    And to complete, Kiz is a coward, too. Hmpf! Hate guys who use their friends to hold someone still to be beaten.

  • lotte

    kiz looks a bit psyco on pannel 2 =D
