Oh man, parents. They’re always pulling tricks like this one! You’re so excited to chat with them or do something fun with them and they get distracted on the phone and you’re left waiting for ages! I wanted to show that frustration in this strip – Chapel’s obviously SO excited for her surprise and then her mother’s phone conversation drags on so long she doesn’t even get it! This has actually happened to me in the past – a year or two ago I remember I was waiting to watch TV with my mom, but she was busy answering email and took so long that I fell asleep on my bean bag chair.
Has anything like this happened to you? Let’s share our parental frustrations below and have our weekly chats in the comments, I love talking to you all!
I forgot to say goodnight to you.
check out Emma T Capps new web comic SUNNY,
The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
Find out every Wednesday!
Once my friend kept asking me what I was getting her for Christmas. When I kept saying 'you'll see' she got tired out.
I like what you did with the colour here!
Anyway, that's what's up this week! Hope you guys like the comic and I'll be back to comment soon...
Emma is at MoCCA in NYC this weekend selling her comics from 10-6pm each day so she may be late with comments. Wish her luck and send her good thoughts!
YAY love this comic too BTW! YOU ROCK!!
Anyway, my mom is always saying, "Kids! It's time to go! Stop talking to your friends, we're leaving right now." And then 10 minutes later she's still talking to HER friends.
(pops in AC/DC's "for those about to rock, we salute you" in honor Emma)
I really didn't have any Parental Frustrations, but i now know what being TROLLED is from our beloved Miss Emma. And for your efforts, i will give you a Gold Star Miss Emma, and that is a rare thing for anyone to earn off of me. Good Job my dear. >)
Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the storyline so far! Hee hee...
At first i thought you were just yanking our chain, but after thinking on it, you are indeed playing out the story line. so Good Job Emma.
... but don't drag it out TOO long, alright?
I'm actually kind of flattered I managed to surprise you, it's nice that I was able to do that!
