Hey guys! I wanted to take a break from drawing Chapel this week and give myself a breather between Seasons 2 and 3. But I wasn’t going to let a week go without giving you guys a new strip to read! I originally drew this strip several months ago, as a guest strip for a comic called Unshelved Book Club. Every month, they invite someone to take over their strip and review a book for them. I chose Plato’s Republic, because I thought it was an unconventional – and therefore very Chapel-esque – choice.

Anyway, I’ll be back next week with more Barnaby and the official start of Season 3!
Chapel is 11. And she read Plato's Republic.

I'm pretty sure there are 18 year olds who are not mature enough to grasp these concepts. (Not that I would know, I've never read it . . .)

It's actually pretty easy to read.

"Justice is conformity." What a horrible, horrible thought.
IvyKllr 8/6/13

 Emma  9/20/13
That was funny =) Too bad I already have a role in the society =(
Me! 11/26/12

 Emma  3/8/13
I noticed that the plants on the windowsill are succulents! Cool.... :)
coco 5/25/12
Oh wow, I'm glad you caught that! They're actually air plants, but they're similar to succulents. Good eye!

Hey, I spotted something neat, went hunting around through the comments of Season One to see if you'd mentioned it back then. Found nothing, so I'm going to mention it now -- Tom Siddell did a *wonderful* rendition of Chapel and Rupert on his Tumblr (yes, THAT Tom Siddell) back in September 2011 -- it's on the second oldest page (5 of 6)

Xheralt 5/25/12
Yes, I've seen it before! I have my own tumblr blog where I re-posted it. Tom Siddell is a sweetheart!

 Emma  5/22/12
I saw inventions, and a giant robot thing, and a colorful car/bus! Oh and I saw those cupcake- bike things! I saw snails too! I didn't buy any thing (nothing really caught my eye), but I got to make something called a " Glovetopus. It's a stuffed octopus made out of gloves & making it was free!

Miss L.S.P 5/21/12
This was drawn before I gave her hands...!
 Emma  3/8/13
Oh my gosh Emma that is brilliant!
My friend's brother gets to read for half an hour for homework. Instead, we get multiplying and dividing decimals worksheets. We were like, WHAT?!?! YOU GET TO READ HARRY POTTER FOR HOMEWORK!?!?!
Ginny Weasley fan 5/19/12
Aha, I used to have to do that in 7th grade too. But now I'll never get to do it again! IT SUCKS!!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/19/12

Ginny Weasley fan 5/19/12

Miss L.S.P 5/20/12

 Emma  3/8/13
love it you're amazing
Yarin 5/18/12
Wow, thank you SO much! I'm glad you like the strip, and that's a very sweet thing to say! Are you a fan of Plato?
 Emma  5/18/12
Plato have 40 some other works that should be read as well. don't just get hooked on just one of them.

That and Plato isn't just the only of the great thinkers and writers of ancient times. You all should go and learn about the full history of the Roman Empire. it's incredable!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/18/12
Don't worry Taxil, I've been immersing myself in more than just the Republic, believe me. This year I actually HAVE learned the history of the Roman Republic, and also read writers like Dante, Cicero, Machiavelli, Aristotle, and Aquinas. It's amazing, isn't it?
 Emma  5/18/12
good job, keep at it.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/19/12
Ooh, I'll have to remember that one. LOL
Emily14 5/18/12
It's a good book, you should try it!
 Emma  5/18/12
YAY! Can't wait for more Barnaby! Have fun during your break and sorry if I kind of offended you with my LoF ask...I didn't mean to make you weirded out by the ship it was innocent!!! LOVE YA GURL
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/18/12
Oh you didn't offend me at all, it's totally fine! (Also, thank you for the lovely fanart, I'll respond to your email in a bit). I hope you are as excited for more Barnaby as I am!
 Emma  5/18/12
YOU'RE WELCOME <33333 it was uber fun to do, my pleasure <3
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 5/18/12
Platos Masterpiece, The Republic, is a lengthy dialog discussing several topics such as self, freedom, and the ideal society. The main question Plato brings up in the test is What is Justice? Its a very interesting inquiry. He eventually concludes that justices is when everyone confiorms to their role in society. Therefore since MY role in society is that of a child without obligations its perfectly just for me NOT to do any chores. Chapel, Im impressed youve read Platos Republic, but even THATs not getting you out of dishes duty
