In case you enjoy these commentaries of mine, I’ve started using my Blogspot blog again! While I have my tumblr for illustrations, it’s not a format really suited to long and wordy posts. When I first started doing my Blogspot, I was uncomfortable with the format and tone, but after a year of writing these commentaries I’m ready to go back to it! While the commentary provides behind-the-scenes info in the comics, my blog posts will do the same for my general life and art – so if you want to know me a little better, go check it out! I’ll post every Thursday!

My mom and I recently started watching a TV show called Arrow, which is pretty intense! It’s based upon the Green Arrow comics, which I haven’t read yet. The main actor does some crazy stunts like this “salmon ladder” one in the pilot. Can you spot a place in this strip where I snuck in an homage to Arrow? There are also two other TV shows referenced in this comic, see if you can spot them!
one question:
why does chapel wear low piggies? i dont know, i just wondered.
Writer who likes real 12/31/13
It looks more interesting...

Go Chapel!! With my luck, this is a perfect example of what would NEVER happen to me. I wish though :P
Ginny Weasley fan 12/6/12
Oh, don't say that! You never know what'll happen!
 Emma  3/8/13
it's that time again. I have my Christmas tree up. This year i put up colored LED lights on it. they are so much brighter than old incadecent colored lights. at night, with the other lights off, the tree turns my living room into something like a rave hall! it's awesome.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 12/4/12
That's so cool!
 Emma  3/8/13
That video is back on the about page, now I can continue to associate that song with this comic. :)
blaidd gwael 12/2/12
About that Video Miss Emma. can you at least not set it so when it loads, it does not automactily starts playing. it's my book mark page and that loads faster than anything else and i have to race to turn my speakers off or down.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 12/2/12
I'll make sure to fix it -- I agree, that's quite annoying!
 Emma  3/8/13
Ha ha! I'm happy you associate such a great song with my comic!
 Emma  3/8/13
Yay 4 Chapel! Except... I have a feeling Chapel wouldn't design costumes as showy as Lady G actually wears. Has Chapel-Universe Gaga written bad songs lately and not had people want to design costumes for her?
Clockwork Wombat 12/1/12
No, Chapel-universe Gaga is still going strong! Chapel's costume was perfect for her -- not TOO crazy, but different enough to be noticed.
 Emma  12/1/12
Well, I would be envious if I cared at all about fashion(which I don't).
Clockwork Wombat 12/7/12
OMG..... she won?!? Awesome x 100 especially after THAT mess...
Miss L.S.P 11/30/12
Yes, she won! I guess all her hard work -- and pickiness when it came to getting the perfect design -- really paid off!
 Emma  11/30/12
i am not so sure about perfect. Knowing how bizarre Gaga dresses, she just might picked Chapel at random. After she when to that award show wearing nothing but raw meat, she should be exiled from the world of fashion forever.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/30/12
Let's assume that the fashion designers who make things for Gaga were the ones who chose Chapel's design, not necessarily Gaga herself...
 Emma  12/1/12
Vomiting? really? i would has assumed that Chapel would turn on the best Gaga tunes i could find and start dancing.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/30/12
I can understand how Chapel feels on this one. Meeting someone you really look up to for the first time is nervewracking.
Marikalay 11/30/12
Yes, that's exactly it!
 Emma  11/30/12
Normally she might respond that way, but this news means enough to her that she would actually be so nervous/excited that she could vomit.
 Emma  11/30/12
i have some reservations about arrow it feels like smallville the sequel to me i'll wait for a justice league movie thank you very much
Yarin 11/30/12
I don't know anything about Arrow, but I LOVED Smallville. It's been off for over a year and I still miss it, haha.
Emily14 11/30/12
I heard it was good, maybe I should try it!
 Emma  11/30/12
I really like how you drew Arrow
CrazyChick 12/1/12
Thank you! I drew the poster originally without much detail, but the actual posters for the show were TOO COOL-LOOKING so I had to redraw it! I'm glad I did, because I think it looks much better this way!!!!
 Emma  12/1/12
I haven't seen Smallville, but the Arrow pilot was intense! My mom’s already in love with it. She’s seen more episodes than I have because I don’t watch too much TV during school, and she’s having to keep herself from spoiling me on it! She already did that with Jane Eyre, where she told me the ENTIRE twist ending!
 Emma  11/30/12
So... Star Trek and Veronica Mars, I would guess? I've seen the former, anyway...
Ha, Chapel's mom looks YOUNG, although I realize I am getting old when I say that... You dang kids! Quit skateboardin' on me lawn!
With a Barnaby aged kid, that would put her around my age... maybe a bit older.

... then again, most of my professors are in the appropriate age range for me to date them, many of the younger students... not so much.
Also, my younger brother (with whom I currently attend university) really enjoys Arrow as well. Studies have kept me busier than I'd like, and haven't yet had time to watch.
Miles 11/30/12
thats the mom? i thought it was barnaby the lack of boobs through me off (what can i say I'm a guy) then again i dont really remember what either of them look like
Yarin 11/30/12
No, that is Barnaby in the 4th panel. the parents are "not to be seen" types here.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/30/12
Yes, Taxil, you're completely right!
 Emma  11/30/12
how do you think chapel would look in her 20's
Yarin 12/1/12
Hmm...she would probably have longer hair, slightly different glasses, and maybe a different outfit. I'll have to try and draw it sometime!
 Emma  12/1/12
I only ask cause I'd like a baseline for when I draw her coming out of the TARDIS riding a giant Rupert
Yarin 12/1/12
better than cow and chicken where we only saw the bottom half lol
Yarin 12/2/12
Yes, it is Barnaby. The mom has never been shown, I'm not really sure why Miles assumed it was the mom.
 Emma  11/30/12
I saw Pushing Daisies as well as ST and VM.
Paragrin 11/30/12
Good catch! Those are correct!
 Emma  11/30/12
No, that's....Barnaby in the last panel. Considering it's the same outfit and the same design as before, I'm not really sure why you think it would be the mom. She probably won't be shown in the panels, but she HAS been shown in the backgrounds in family photos.
 Emma  11/30/12
My bad. Barnaby looks different for some reason, and then I assumed it was mom. Also the fact that it was quite early in the morning, and I was too tired to fall asleep may have had a lot to do with that. =Þ
Miles 12/1/12
Also, I think for some reason I read about you and your mom enjoying Arrow, and maybe mentally put Chapel's mom in the comic, then, subconsciously.
I hang my head in shame.

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!
