Do you remember in what comic Barnaby’s bedroom first appeared? Without checking, tell me which one, and the first person to guess correctly can win a free Season Three minicomic!! It’s on the honor system.

One Piece (which Chapel’s peddling in this comic) is the best-selling manga worldwide. It’s been serialized weekly for 15 years and is only about ½ of the way through its projected storyline! It has an ongoing anime adaptation, 10+ movies, 65+ book volumes, a museum exhibit about it, a video game, and SO much merchandise that there’s even toilet paper themed after the characters. Go check it out!

I like to imagine that in the third panel, Barnaby is about to bop Chapel with his foot. She did pop out of nowhere while he was reading in his own bedroom, so I think it’s deserved. Maybe just a soft foot tap…

I do this to my friends all the time... They don't buy it :)
Ginny Weasley fan 4/24/13
Haha! Guess you can commiserate with Chapel here!
 Emma  4/30/13
 
His bedroom first appeared in the comic where he and Chapel were watching Doctor Who. Unfortunately, I don't remember what it's called :(
Keep up the great work!
Pemi 3/29/13
Good catch, that's exactly where it first showed up! I'm glad you like it! :)
 Emma  3/29/13
 
Geez, Chapel! You shouldn't push Barnaby so hard like that. My brother would kill me if I did that.
ilovepie81 2/26/13
Ha ha! Chapel and Barnaby are so close that a bit of friendly sparring won't make them get seriously mad at each other.
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Hey there peeps so I want to start doing something weekly that's related to art but I just don't know what to do. Any ideas?
Trix 2/1/13
There are lots of weekly art challenges on the internet that you can check out! Many give cool weekly prompts.
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Maybe it's time to change your hairstyle emma :)
Trix 1/31/13
No, I'm fine with my hair as is.
 Emma  1/31/13
has it always been short?
Miss L.S.P 1/31/13
I just put purple in my hair today!!!
Silver 2/1/13
Cool! I wanna do that
Miss L.S.P 2/1/13
Btw that was me
Miss L.S.P 2/1/13
Urg nevermind
Miss L.S.P 2/1/13
 
Hey Emma, do you play Minecraft? Jut wondering :-)
Kirbiti 1/31/13
No, I don't play computer/video games...
 Emma  1/31/13
yea, computer games will eat up your time. With you keeping your self busy Miss Emma, i just can't see you getting into them right now.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/31/13
Yes! If I have free time, I prioritize Chapel work and other projects...
 Emma  1/31/13
Omigosh! I play!!!! BEST GAME EVER!
Miss L.S.P 1/31/13
 
i love your comic! i'm pretty sure the prize has been won,but it was "Forgive and Forget". i can't forget that one it was WHOariffic!! can't wait for new episodes they come back on March 30 my b-day ^.^
1/30/13
Yes, it's already been won...and if you like Who, in a few weeks there will be a strip with lots of it!
 Emma  1/31/13
Why yes, i like The Who. they made great classic rock. ;-)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/31/13
Heyyyy I see what you did there. :D
CrazyChick 1/31/13
 
Chapel looks adorable. :3
Emily14 1/28/13
Thank you!
 Emma  1/30/13
 
(Sighs) I read almost all of my books again. Only my best friend yields attention.
Ginny Weasley fan 1/27/13
Ha ha! My best friend and I love to share books, too.
 Emma  1/30/13
 
one question Miss Emma. will we ever see the return of Pete, the game tryant?

i would like to see Him and Chapel trying "Go" for once. if that is so, could we get a table flip (aka "Nuclear Tesuji") out Pete of losing to Chapel for once.

like so...

(╯°□°)╯︵,,.┻━┻._.,
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/27/13
His name's not Pete...it's Fred!

We will see him again soon, although a table flip might not happen for a while.
 Emma  1/27/13
(face palm) I'm sorry Miss Emma, i guess that is what happens when i post tired.

(blinks) is my eyes fooling me? is there a new icon at the top of the page today?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/27/13
No, I see them too!
Miss L.S.P 1/27/13
(Meaning that your eyes do not deceive you)
Miss L.S.P 1/27/13
I guess your famous memory was faulty with regard to Fred's name...it's okay though, I'm bad with names too.

Yes -- the Facebook, Twitter, and News&Videos buttons are new.
 Emma  1/30/13
yea, I'm still a mortal man in the end. these last couple of days have been very stressful, my memory tends to slip up then.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/30/13
 
I think chapel really missed her brother when he went away to college so that's why she wants to spend time with him by annoying him
Trix 1/26/13
My little brother does that to me every time I come home from college.
blaidd gwael 1/27/13
Yes, definitely! What a sweet thought, Trix :)
 Emma  1/30/13
BTW I don't have a brother
Trix 1/30/13
 
I think chapel would look ADORABLE and totally awesome if she had her hair in braids :)
Miss L.S.P 1/26/13
She WOULD look cute! I probably won't draw her that way in a comic, though.
 Emma  1/30/13
Oh, it's no problem... It was just a suggestion
Miss L.S.P 1/31/13
 
have you heard the song thrift shop it is cool excluding the bad language
Trix 1/26/13
Oh! I've heard that many times- pretty catchy, as you said, excluding the bad language
Miss L.S.P 1/26/13
It's like it's addicting :)
Trix 1/26/13
I LOVE that song -- my dad and I have shopped at our local thrift store ever since I was a baby, so that song is one of our favorites!
 Emma  1/27/13
 
Manga-themed... toilet paper??? Commercialization scares me sometimes.
Clockwork Wombat 1/25/13
I agree. That's weird.
doodlefox 1/26/13
they only make it because people like you and me will BUY that! it's not the commercialization that should scare you, it's what we want deep down that should scare you.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/26/13
Except that besides the fact that I now read One Piece and it = awesome, I reaaaaally am kind of creeped out by the idea of manga toilet paper, as I am a huge fan of manga and would consider using it for toilet paper a form of art desecration.
Clockwork Wombat 1/31/13
Whaaaa I didn't even know such a thing excitsed (bad spelling sorry) now I want some.
CrazyChick 1/30/13
I know, it's strange.
 Emma  3/8/13
 
the one comic where chapel isn't wearing a hat but has has a new hairstyle . guess hair is her best feature :)
Trix 1/25/13
I thought that sometimes she should do something new with her hair itself, instead of just accessorizing it!
 Emma  1/25/13
 
Season 3, comic 2!!!! I really don't know how i remembered that but i guess reading every single comic yesterday helped :-) I really love Chapel's new hairstyle, by the way!
Kirbiti 1/25/13
YOU WIN!! Click on the "Contact Me" button at the bottom of this page and email me your address, so I can send you your prize. Great memory!

Now that you're caught up, I hope you keep checking back every Friday for the new comic. Isn't her hair cute? I wish I could do a similar look, but my hair is too short.
 Emma  1/25/13
I do not envy hair AT ALL. I keep mine as short as I can, as I do not really like the idea of sticking stuff in the strings of dead cells that hang off my head.
Clockwork Wombat 1/25/13
.....some of us wish we still HAD any hair to fuss over. you will not appreciate what you got until it's gone.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/26/13
Thanks! I dunno if my mom will let me do that... you know, privacy and stuff.... I'll check!
Kirbiti 1/31/13
 
Haha... Live the new hairstyle! I just wish I could remember what that comic was.... But then again I don't really need to....
Miss L.S.P 1/25/13
Thanks, I'm glad you like the hairstyle!! It's a specific 50s hairstyle called a "victory roll."
 Emma  1/25/13
That's cool!
Miss L.S.P 1/25/13
(waits for the return of chapel's poofy hair monster mode)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
haha, that was a good one!
Miss L.S.P 1/25/13
hahahahahahahahahahahahumidity :]

I remember back in 2001, when I was in Japan, I had to make a decision about which of two comic series I was going to read; One Piece was one of them, and Shaman King the other. Ultimately I went with Shaman King, but it seems as though One Piece has been after my attention a lot this month.
Miles 1/25/13
yea, one piece is still going and shaman king is done. I found one piece an Ok to good at the start of it. after the years and 68 volumes later, One piece is suffering from "Dragonball syndrome". It just goes on way too long! Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and the like slowly contract it.

Miss Emma, for a change, I will tell you a few titles that you and others in here can take a look at (and hopefully not too much adult content). Also, some can be found in book stores, others are only online but free to read.

Witch Craft Works
Emma (for those who like Pride and Prejudice)
Centaur's Worries
Ratman
Girls of the Wild's (a translated Korean web comic)
Bakuman
Kaibutsu Oujo (aka, monster princess)

take a look. i have more if none of them work out for you.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
ok, correction. Emma is more like Downtown Abby than Pride and Prejudice, but it's still good.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
Well, I love both P&P and Downton, so both comparisons are appealing!
 Emma  1/25/13
Actually, if you follow it week by week, One Piece isn't getting too drawn out -- it actually gets better and better.

I've read "Bride's Story," by the author of "Emma," and it is one of my favorite comics. Her attention to historical detail is inspiring!
 Emma  1/25/13
"Shirley" is also by the same author/artist. THAT is also worth reading.

for those who are older and can take more grafic violance, "Akumetsu" is one of my favorite. It's like like "The Punisher" meet "V for Vendetta" meets "Atlas Shrugged"
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
I'm almost finished reading this one manga series called "Fruits Basket". It used to be the most popular shojo manga in around 1998-2001 and has its own TV show. My friend showed me it and its SUPER good! You should check it out :-)
Kirbiti 1/25/13
Oh yeah, I've watched a couple episodes of that show- it's actually not that bad ;)
Miss L.S.P 1/26/13
"fruits basket" is a classic. good thing much more of them have come out sense then.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/26/13
Yeah its very good
dawnflower8 1/28/13
I've looked at Shaman King a bit, and One Piece is more my style...you should try it!!
 Emma  1/25/13
i have read One Piece for years. It's a bit wearing on me. How about this Miss Emma, try out "The World God Only Knows" for a change!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
I'm very busy, and really don't have time! I'm pretty good on comic/manga recommendations right now.
 Emma  1/25/13
Too hard to find in its native language in New Mexico, and like you, my time is limited. =\
I really should find it and improve my literacy, not having used it in so long I feel as though I have forgotten almost everything.
Miles 1/26/13
the internet is your friend in this regard if you are looking for untranslated Manga.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/26/13
 
oh yes, i remember what comic it was. but i will pass on it so others can have the prize. Besides, with my memory, it would look like cheating if i asked for it.

a new hair style chapel? that is good, it makes her a bit more realistic.

btw, even if Barnaby wanted to bop chapel, he couldn't have reached her from where she was at. don't believe me? try it out your self with out moving your torso. ... HOWEVER, chapel ISN'T safe if he tossed his pillow at her. ;-)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 1/25/13
That's very sweet of you to pass on the prize Taxil! This hairstyle won't be permanent, but I decided I wanted to change it up sometimes.

I wouldn't put it past him to peg her with the pillow!
