    Now that's just not true. Ships managed their foresails with booms long before that.
  3. This Day In History

    23 September 99 Days in the Year left to go 99 Days in the Year... 1338 – The Battle of Arnemuiden was the first naval battle of the Hundred Years' War and the first naval battle using gunpowder artillery. How many millennia of Human History at sea, and NOTHING went BOOM until less than 700 years ago? 1459 – The Battle of Blore Heath, the first major battle of the English Wars of the Roses, takes place. Everybody loved the petals. But when it came time to fight, the thorns won the day. 1641 – The Merchant Royal, carrying a treasure of over 100,000 pounds of gold (worth over £1 billion today), is lost at sea off Land's End. Wait a minute! We KNOW there is fifty TONS of gold off the coast of Land's End? Why hasn't someone drained the Atlantic to get it yet? 1642 – First commencement exercises occur at Harvard College. The first commencement speaker should be wrapping up his speech any year now. 1780 – American Revolution: British Major John André is arrested as a spy by American soldiers exposing Benedict Arnold's change of sides. Remember kids, if you want to commit high treason, don't let anyone who might talk know about it. 1806 – Lewis and Clark return to St. Louis after exploring the Pacific Northwest of the United States. They fail to find the North West Passage. But they do inspire the name for a Soap-Opera version of the Superman Story. 1846 – Astronomers Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier, John Couch Adams and Johann Gottfried Galle collaborate on the discovery of Neptune. But they did it the hard way with math and telescopes. All they had to do was join the Navy, then they would have discovered Neptune as soon as they crossed the Equator. 1889 – Nintendo Koppai (Later Nintendo Company, Limited) is founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi to produce and market the playing card game Hanafuda. How does one go from printing playing cards to destroying human civilization in less than a century? 1909 – The novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (The Phantom of the Opera), by Gaston Leroux, is published as a serialization in Le Gaulois. Who knew that the story of a maimed drama nut would translate so well from magazines to books to any number of other languages to silent film to talkies to Broadway? 1913 – Roland Garros of France becomes the first to fly in an airplane across the Mediterranean (from St. Raphael in France to Bizerte, Tunisia). And for this, he becomes the muddiest of all the major tennis tournaments. 1938 – The Czechoslovak army is mobilized in response to the Munich Agreement. This mobilization, along with the concessions to Germany and the guarantee of Neville Chamberlain should be more than enough to ensure the safety and security of Czechoslovakia. 1962 – The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts opens in New York City. Because "Lincoln" is exactly the thought you want at a theatre.
  4. And here I thought the major timeskip would happen directly after Sister 3 before Legend Of Diane disproved that.

    Dangit, I have something from another comic I want to put here, but it's on a site that doesn't make a permalink available for the current page. So here's what the permalink will be: http://www.whiteponyproductions.com/neoctc/NEOCTC_553.htm And until that works: http://www.whiteponyproductions.com/neoctc/present.htm

    Hmm, Grace as an anti-hero... I find this concept surprisingly plausible (particularly if she had fell in with a different crowd after escaping Damien, or Painted Black had gone differently) but rather scary. OR if Damien arrived later. She was basically born AND raised to be anti-hero.
  8. NP Wednesday September 19, 2018

    Grace COULD put on other clothes, but she's more likely to "support" Sarah.
  9. Story Friday September 21, 2018

    I wonder if anthropomorphized personality traits (Diane's shoulder angel & devil, Susan's curiosity/logic/nature/nurture) are inherited from Pandora as well? It would make more sense than them both having them just randomly ... Well, with how long ago Raven fathered the child who was ancestor to Susan, there are likely a large number of descendants of Raven around the world; there's no reason Sarah couldn't be one of them. Alternately, Sarah just has an overactive imagination. (I'm mostly joking about this entire scenario, but actually I do find it a lot easier to buy the highly creative Sarah having imagined conversations with herself than people like Susan or Diane visualizing their internal debates in the manner illustrated in the comic.) Sarah having an overactive imagination is canon, she's artist and comic writter AND her conversation worked a lot differently. Yes, I don't believe Pandora would miss that, with how long she spend with Sarah. There likely will be other relatives, but noone from main cast. Note that statistically speaking, basically everyone should have some immortal in bloodline by now. But in lot of people those genes get diluted apparently ... and Sarah is good example of that. However, if you look at the spell which matched her talent AND her conversation with herself, it actually matches - and I mean it matches even more than Susan's or Diane's personalised traits. So, yes: Susan's and Diane's personalised traits AND Sarah's imagined conflict are both inherited from immortals AND the differences between them are due to different immortal they inherited it from. He also never was a "point of view" character. ... well ... ok, he sort of was in parts of Death Sentence, like here ... but looking at photo was sufficient, he didn't needed personalised traits to tell him anything. I suppose his personalised traits would be his human side and his immortal side.

    That's a thought. However, Adrian's never been shown with anything like that, unless you count the "Pimp Daddy R" that Ellen and maybe Nanase sometimes picture him as.
  11. Story Friday September 21, 2018

    This is true. But we also know that Sarah has at least one immortal in her bloodline, or she wouldn't have that affinity. Anthropomorphized personality traits might come from other immortals, for all we know.
  12. Story Friday September 21, 2018

    I don't see Sarah being related to Adrian or else Pandora would have mentioned it in the reveal.

    Bulgarian-style Buttermilk. Nom. Good for keeping you out of the munchies, while providing good, tasty nutrition at the same time.

    How do you explain Sarah?

    You can actually buy replicas of it, or read a digital copy of it as part of the "Complete National Geographic" collection... (SPOILER: That issue is incredibly boring.)

    Huh, it runs in the family. I wonder if anthropomorphized personality traits (Diane's shoulder angel & devil, Susan's curiosity/logic/nature/nurture) are inherited from Pandora as well? I've always heard it as pink elephants. In fact, before I read the commentary and Dan said nothing about color, I assumed the only reason it was an "elephant" instead of a "pink elephant" was because the comic is in grayscale. (In retrospect that train of thought doesn't work so well; after all the comic being in grayscale didn't stop Dan from having the characters tell us Ellen's hair was green.)
  19. This Day In History

    22 September 1598 – English playwright Ben Jonson kills actor Gabriel Spenser in a duel and is indicted for manslaughter. Johnson confesses to the deed, but avoids hanging by claiming "Benefit of the Clergy" by being able to read. So his thumb is branded. 1692 – The last hanging of those convicted of witchcraft in the Salem witch trials; others are all eventually released. Someone confessed to murder, and they let him off with just branding his thumb. But a scared teenaged girl accused several people of witchcraft, without any evidence that would be admissible in a regular court, and many of them are hanged? Hate to say it, but the Salem colony needed...MORE LAWYERS! By all that is merciful and good, may I be forgiven for telling the truth as I have seen it. 1776 – Nathan Hale is hanged for spying during the American Revolution. Turns out he did only have one live to give for his country, or anything else for that matter. 1789 – The office of United States Postmaster General is established. Benjamin Franklin really was the very model of the modern Postmaster General. 1791 – Birth of Michael Faraday, English physicist and chemist (d. 1867). Had a goofy idea that light, electricity, and magnetism were all some how the same thing. Crazy. 1888 – The first issue of National Geographic Magazine is published. And it's still sitting under a stack of the other old National Geographics in grandma's garage because someone might need them someday. 1892 – Lindal Railway Incident, a locomotive and quite a bit of track collapse in a sink hole. No one is hurt, but it does disrupt transportation for quite a while. And of course rumors abound making the event seem far more destructive that it actually was. This provides inspiration for "The Lost Special" by A.C. Doyle. It is also, somehow, inspiration for the TV show, Lost. For this reason alone, we should dig up that old engine and show that it was an ordinary accident. No mystical or sci-fi shenanigans involved here. 1927 – Jack Dempsey loses the "Long Count" boxing match to Gene Tunney. When the referee tells you to go to a neutral corner, GO THERE AND STAY THERE until the referee says otherwise. 1939 – World War II: A joint German–Soviet military parade in Brest-Litovsk is held to celebrate the successful invasion of Poland. Good to see old friends getting along so well after a shared victory. I'm sure nothing will come between them. 1948 – Gail Halvorsen officially started parachuting candy to children as part of the Berlin Air lift. The coal and grain are useful to the citizens of Berlin. But little packs of chocolate and chewing gum dropped at random across the besieged city have an incalculable symbolic value. 1979 – A bright flash, resembling the detonation of a nuclear weapon, is observed near the Prince Edward Islands. The Prince Edward Islands near Antarctica, not the PEI of the Canadian Maritimes. Its cause is never determined. There are several compelling hypothesis. But proving any of them would mean confirming that certain countries that were not supposed to have nuclear weapons were in fact testing nuclear weapons. 1991 – The Dead Sea Scrolls are made available to the public for the first time. But before you check them out, consider what they charge as over due fines. If you have to ask, you can't afford it,

    Variant 3 could be plausible if Grace and Sarah were baking a cake for Tedd's birthday, and there was a mishap with the mixer that resulted in them getting covered in cake mix, so now their clothes are in the wash and while Grace could easily just put on other clothes, Sarah didn't bring an extra set with her, so there we go.

    Nixon will do much better in the 31st Century.

    Silly anatomy. One rack is almost already hip-level. Spidey just needs one rack. Ask all other multi-armed superhero(in)es. Also, Crime 101: Always round up your targets. (Applies to both heroes and villains. Anti-heroes are neutral to this)
  23. Story Friday September 21, 2018

    Even if it does not talk, there is an elephant in the room. Oy. Vey. Darn you, past Diane!! Also, past Diane deduces present Diane's predicament. Yup, the lack of self-deduction actually lives on to her own irony. So, if life is an equation, Diane always forgets to carry the 2.
  24. Comic 9/22/18 - A Little Umbled Jup

    TheHeroesOfCRASH.com Necros could probably do the slo-mo Matrix dodge, but doesn't respect most opponents enough to let them see a move that cool. While I've been trying to do a better job with my characters' proportions and anatomy, it's been more fun employing another art skill I've been working on: the Line of Action. A good example is that top right panel, where Necros is flipping Cannon and Dodge, causing them to travel in an arc. I get to break the rules of anatomy, turning Cannon and Dodge's arms into rubber and their legs into streaks as they soar across the panel. It's a lot of fun to draw and to look at. Initially, I drew Necros grabbing Cannon by his purple sleeve, but I changed it when I saw that it was easier to draw (and probably more practical) to have Necros grab him by his cannon in the following panel. I nearly let Cannon make a reference to "drain bamage", borrowing a line from Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, but I wasn't sure how to use that line so that it felt more like paying homage than stealing.

    Note that she IS walking late to class ... well, not exactly walking ... who's class it's going to be? EDIT: At least Diane's mirror image is nicer than Alice's.

    Maybe this will be Monday's first gag: Diane (Eyes still squeezed shut): There is no elephant!! Familiar Voice: Elephant? (Diane opens her eyes. Adrian Raven is standing in front of her.)
