And here we are! It’s the very last strip in Season Two, and what a cliffhanger! Hee hee…I’m so delighted at being able to show this strip! I’m sure you guys are surprised by how this last arc in Chapel turned out, too. When Season 3 starts, you can bet that there’ll be plenty more time of showcasing Barnaby in all his glory!

Anyway, what do you think about Barnaby? Are you excited for learning more about him? Let’s talk in the commentary, I can’t wait to hear from you!
I like this surprise. :)

I did something similar to my Mum when I got out of the Navy. I told I wouldn't be home for a week after I was really going to be there.

My sister picked me up from the airport. When we got home, my mom didn't recognize me at first, as I was partly hidden by a shadow.

When she finally did realize who was standing there, she yelled out and charged at me for a hug. :)

It is a great memory.

What a perfect surprise!

I know...

My heart broke for Chapel in the last strip, but this one makes me very happy!

It's good to be pleasantly surprised. ^^

Hmm, he looks like a nice, teasing, indulging older brother type, Barnaby is. Can't wait to know more about him! ^0^
DarkwingLady 11/3/13
Aww, I'm so glad! I was sad even DRAWING the previous comic. And Barnaby is one of my favorite characters I've made!
 Emma  11/7/13
Very nicely done.
Max_Writer 10/21/12
Thank you!
 Emma  3/8/13
Um... he's very YELLOW... and RED. Um... and he has a WEIRD shirt.
Jam 7/6/12
About the shirt... I meant the words, not the drawing. Drawing is GREAT. He looks a LOT like Barnaby. Nice job on him.
Jam 7/6/12
I messed up. When I said "He looks a LOT like Barnaby", I meant he looked a lot like CHAPEL. Sorry for that. OF COURSE he looks like Barnaby, because he IS Barnaby!
Jam 7/6/12
Ah, I'm having trouble parsing these three comments...would you mind clarifying?
 Emma  7/17/12
never seen another character besides chapel until now... nice job!!
Andrea 7/3/12
Thanks so much, I'm glad you like the change!

no new comic today i see. if we don't hear from her soon, i will assume she was kidnapped and we have to go rescue her.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/18/12
oh gosh, I actually worry that ;P
thank goodness she's posted already
Miss L.S.P 5/19/12
It's there!
 Emma  3/8/13
cool to see the strip expanding, adding on another character. :)
nerdyguy 5/16/12
I'm so happy you like it! Hopefully Barnaby will be a great addition!
 Emma  7/17/12
hey we can see a little bit of what Chapel's mom looks like in the pictures next to Chapel...

will we ever see her in the comic?
No, I don't think I'll include any of the adults as on-screen characters in the comic!
 Emma  7/17/12
It seems like a couple days later after the comic is posted, nobody has anything to say....
Miss L.S.P 5/16/12
Sometimes that is true...
 Emma  3/8/13
This is the first time you've shown a character other than Chapel!!! (other than in pictures.)
OOOOOHHH, mountains! I am ever collecting clues to where Chapel lives. So far -
...aaaannd that's about it.
(I love exclamation points.)

Yup! I put that in as a nod to all of you faithful readers who like Harry Potter. I figure since you guys have been reading so long, I should put in a little easter egg at the end of Season Two as an homage to you readers! <3

NO! Thank YOU for always reading my comic, without you guys I wouldn't be able to keep doing it. Thank you!
 Emma  5/14/12
Yes, Barnaby is the first new on-screen character besides Chapel! A surprising turn of events, isn't it?

Also, Chapel doesn't really live in a defined place, so I don't put an awful lot of thought into the backgrounds...but if you want to hypothesize about where she might live, go ahead, I'd love love LOVE to hear it!
 Emma  5/14/12
Yay, Barnaby's here! :D I bet he'll be fun.
Emily14 5/13/12
I'm glad you're excited to learn more about him! What do you predict will be some things he'll do?
 Emma  5/13/12
uhh, be nice, funny, embarrassing..
my first guess was annoying, but he seems too nice right now to say.
Miss L.S.P 5/13/12
I gotta agree.

I'm not sure what he'll do while he's do, but it'll be interesting seeing someone other than Chapel!

Oh, Happy Birthday!!!! (^^)

Happy late Birthday!!! :D

Happy (late) birthday! :)
Emily14 5/14/12
Hi! Sorry I haven't commented in a while! :/ I was busy :( school and stuff... Emma, I couldn't come to the thing in NYC! I'm soo sorry :( Well, I can always comment here :D
AND OH MY GOSH! Barnaby is sooo cuteeeee!!! <333 Is it possible to be shy of a cartoon character? :D haha I AM CRAZY XD
Katherine 5/11/12
It's fine! I'm sorry you were so busy...HA HA I find it hilarious that everyone finds Barnaby cute!
 Emma  5/11/12
Don't you think so?
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
I basically just designed him to look like an older, male version of Chapel...I hadn't really thought about it.
 Emma  5/11/12
oh, ok
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
i can see you passing that off as family resemblence and all, but for me, it would not hurt to make him a bit more diffrent that chapel. i will say chapel takes after her mom, maybe Barnaby takes after his dad?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/12/12
Barnaby actually does take after his dad a bit! The parents won't be shown, but he does. :)
 Emma  5/12/12
Aww... it's too bad that we won't see him
Miss L.S.P 5/13/12
them I mean..
Miss L.S.P 5/13/12
I was WONDERING where you were. Good to have you back!
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
Yeah, great to have you back!!
 Emma  5/11/12
Thank you! :3
Katherine 5/13/12
May I just say how cute the little tears in panel 3 are X3
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/11/12
I know, right?
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
You think so too? :D
 Emma  5/11/12
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
Chapel's cute even when she's sad! Wish I had as much luck...
 Emma  5/11/12
THis looks really cute, love it
Niki M 5/11/12
Thank you so much, I'm glad you like it!

Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/11/12
he's actually kinda cute.
you know, for a web comic character XDDDD
he looks like a brunette Ron XD
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/11/12
I agree that he IS kinda cute for a cartoon character..
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
Oh my GOSH, you guys crack me up.
 Emma  5/12/12
haha :)
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
Oh my gosh...you realize he IS eighteen, right? And he does look sort of like Ron, yeah, with browner hair...
 Emma  5/12/12
Ginny Weasley fan 5/14/12
WHAT CAN I SAY I like messing with you guys!
 Emma  5/11/12
Yay! it must be nice for Chapel to see her brother again! REALLY NICE...
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
nice Harry Potter poster too! :)
Miss L.S.P 5/11/12
Ahaha, I actually put that in just as a shoutout to all of you Harry Potter fans who read Chapel!
 Emma  5/12/12
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/12/12
Yes! She's obviously VERY excited to see him again -- and who wouldn't be?
 Emma  5/12/12
I honestly don't know... :)
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
WHAT! EMMA T. CAPPS! You said Barnaby wasn't going to get screen time! I've been trolled again! I can't trust anyone these days.


I'm joking, I still love ya Emma. You just keep surprising me.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/11/12
GOTCHA! I'm surprised you believed me, actually. Oh well, I've enjoyed messing with all of you guys during this storyline!
 Emma  5/12/12
So did Barnaby and Chapel's mom plan this together?
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
Nope, Barnaby was acting on his own! Nobody else had any idea he was tricking them.
 Emma  5/12/12
Miss L.S.P 5/12/12
that is going to be one upset mother once she figures out she's been had as well, then i guess she'll just forgive him along side Chapel.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/12/12
You like to mess with people too?
High five.
Ginny Weasley fan 5/14/12
Oooh new character! Absolutely I'm excited to learn more about him!
Kiwifruit 5/11/12
Yes, you'll definitely be finding out a lot more about Barnaby!

looks like someone just had another face-->keyboard event.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/13/12
I think that was my dad testing out the website...he usually does it on a private server (just to make sure the comments are working) but I guess this time he made a mistake.
 Emma  5/14/12
oh.. hi Emma' dad, i guess even though you're probably not on anymore.
Miss L.S.P 5/14/12
ETC, it wasn't me....somebody in TX according to the logs
Miss L.S.P 5/15/12
