  1. Story Monday Oct 22 2018

    Well, I wasn't expecting an extended "will they or won't they" period, it's just that I don't see how more than a minute or two has passed since Diane learned Lucy was even interested in her; unless Diane already had feelings for Lucy or hasn't thought this through, that seems fast even considering everything you've said. Mind you, I wouldn't be shocked if Diane did have feelings for Lucy; I'd also be willing to accept the idea that Diane thought very quickly if we learn what those thoughts were. In the meantime, however, not knowing what's going through Diane's head, it seems a bit jarring to me.

    http://egscomics.com/egsnp/nanasecraft-04 [space for reaction] If Nanase could afford to have the animators draw her an entire different outfit, Sarah, she wouldn't have needed to go on this expedition in the first place! (Which raises the question, does Sarah have more money than Nanase, or is she just more practical with how she spends it?) This really does remind me of any number of cartoons I've watched over the years; no character can be expected to have more than one outfit, unless they're a superhero with a secret identity (in which case they will still probably only have the two outfits). As for the commentary, I've heard a number of things about Anniversary that make me hesitant to pick it up; most of them are nitpicky, but I'm entitled to be swayed by nostalgia and little details if I want to be. This adds another.
  3. Story Monday Oct 22 2018

    Well, Diane still hasn't technically asked Lucy out... But seriously, this seems a little fast to me. Unless Diane already had a thing for Lucy (which has not been indicated) or is prone to impulsive actions (I don't remember any hints about this either, but I could be forgetting something), I really would have expected her to have to think about it for at least a few hours if not a few days in-story before giving any indication of interest in a relationship (except perhaps for telling Lucy that she's bisexual and is not completely ruling out the possibility). ...In other matters, I usually only cheer for actual backgrounds, not effects with foreground elements, but this is the closest thing in spirit to the old flowery backgrounds we've seen in a long time, so I'm going to make an exception. Yay for epic starburst with lens-flare in panel six!
  4. This Day In History

    I haven't been handing out likes because I'm stingy with them, but I wanted to say how much I appreciate this thread. It's really nice to be able to look forward to a few minutes of history mixed with humor every day.

    If Dan wasn't avoiding doing non-canon things with Pandora until she shows up again in the story, the climax of this arc would be a great time for her to make a cameo!
  6. Well, the physical indications of the "ditzy" card are blonde with a bigger bust, and Diane does have a bigger bust than usual. Of course in EGS any number of transformations cause that... (Interestingly, this is one body detail I guess I don't pay a lot of attention to. I didn't really take note of how big her breasts were here until I specifically looked for it, and even then I had no idea just how much of a change it was until I compared it to the recent story comics. ...Then again, my failure to taken note of the change might just be the result of years of reading comic books with multiple artists who couldn't be bothered to be consistent with one another on character design, with breast size being one of the most variable measurements.)

  8. Story Friday Oct 19, 2018

    http://egscomics.com/comic/tlod-027 Not what I was expecting to see, but still not quite Diane asking Lucy on a date. (Incidentally, I knew the forum was quieter than usual, but it's very strange to be the one starting the story thread, particularly when I didn't exactly rush to start it the moment the comic was up...)
  9. http://egscomics.com/sketchbook/2018-031 https://www.patreon.com/posts/cheer-charlotte-22126400 Meh, not bad. I'd like it better if it featured cats, though.
  10. Horned helmets are most useful in battle to those who like to fight by headbutting their opponents. He also didn't realize he'd "discovered" anything; he thought for sure he was in "the Indies".

    Of course, those adventuring archeologists often have a lot more than lawsuits to worry about when one of the people who thinks the stuff still belongs to the deceased is the deceased...
  12. Story, Wednesday October 17, 2018

    Regardless of what she decides to do with this information, we still need to see more of Diane's reaction, and in particular what her thoughts on the matter are. That's going to take at least an entire comic, most likely more than one. I wouldn't expect to see Diane asking Lucy out or otherwise attempting to resolve things with her until at least next Monday, and maybe not until sometime the week after next, assuming there aren't any interruptions and we get a resolution to the Diane/Lucy thread in this story at all.

    Well, at the very least (based of my reading of the Keenspot forum archives from before I joined, as well as a little bit of some other EGS forums I was able to read before they went offline) the early-to-mid 00's forums had several people who were very outspoken in their perversion; every time anything sexy was posted in the comics, they'd be talking about how much they loved it, often in an exaggerated and/or juvenile manner. These days a lot of sexy things come and go without anyone commenting on them, and we're a lot more reserved in how we express our appreciation. In the late 00s, around the time I first joined the forums, the most vocal of those people had left, and a few people had joined who didn't appreciate the fanservice. At first it was just respectful criticism and/or pointing out that not everyone was interested - but by early this decade it had devolved into repetitive and often heated arguments, which is why it's listed along with pacing and scheduling (other big subjects of argument) in the Pacing/Scheduling/Fanservice thread... ...At any rate, it turns out it's not just old stuff that makes Dan think "that ship has sailed"; in a reply to a question on Patreon, Dan said:

    Just speculation here; if you wanted to know for sure you'd have to ask him and hope he actually answers, but... I suspect at the time he was thinking something along the lines of, "So long as I don't show nipples or genitals, I can't get into too much trouble for this." (Or if he wasn't concerned about the comic being labeled as adults-only, that was just the boundaries of what he was comfortable with at the time.) As for why he felt more confident about such things back then, I think it's a combination of factors. For one thing, there was probably an element of the arrogance of youth involved (if I recall correctly, he was just out of High School when he started EGS). Also, his primary communication with the his fans (besides email) during the '00s was the forums, and for many years they were an echo chamber with many outspoken people in them who were as perverted as Tedd seemed to be at the time. Most importantly, he wasn't relying on the comic as a source of income at the time - nowadays if he looses too many readers (or rather too many patrons) it will affect his way of life, maybe even make it hard for him to get by.

    Yay for starburst background in panel one! ...Or is it a sunburst with the disc hidden by Spider-Grace? Eh, whatever.
