Issue four begins here! And Cortland's face looks a bit less broken and a bit more scowly than where we left it. So, is he feeling better? Or does he have his masks back on good and tight? Answers on a postcard :D

(Hope you guys like the slighty new look too! Subtly different, but different all the same ^_^)

Ask an Ian!

Hullo everyone, being the shy introvert that I am, I have spend too little tile on here except by blushing from all the awesome comments. Seriously, thank you SO much.

But, you know who is not shy? Ian. And I thought that since this is the start of a new issue, Ian might volunteer for an "ask an Ian" session.

Yep, that means that you can ask Ian anything you want in the comments, and he will answer in character. However, I might censor any spoilers...

I'm not sure how late I am to reading this comic but surprisingly it's good. I'm quite intrigued. I just finished reading it in one go too.

My questions for Ian…..How will help Cortland open up from insecurity? and what's your favourite season and why?

Oooh. The color shift is nice! Gives it a sort of sadder feel to it, to me. Like you're going to end up in a grey-blue of despair kind of tone a few issues from now, if you keep going, you know?

Pouting Cortland is rather adorable.

And aw man -- Irena can do a sullen/angry/bitter expression with the best of them.

I don't imagine Cortland's 'better' so much as it's easier to wear a mask when your face isn't beat to shit.

Hey, Ian? When was the last time you had a good cry?

@MalinRyden: ooh! Hello, Ian! generous of you to visit us on your week off. :)

@Xrs: I'm glad you like the slight changes, yay! And thanks for the sweet comment ^_^
And I know, I know, a whole week's update without Ian. But Irena never gets any screen time...and don't worry, Ian will be back in action next week (and Cortland will be back to wondering when he gets a go XD).

@CatastropheJones: Cortland's pout us legend XD
Gld you like the colour shift! I always wanted the pages to be more sepia than olive, so I'm happier now ^_^

@cherish.york: [Ian] My favorite season? That has to be summer, right? Or, well... yeah. It used to be anyway. But it was more fun when you were a kid, you know? You didn't have to go to school and could play all day. Then it's all about getting a job and earning some money, and suddenly I'm washing cars at my fake uncle's place and seriously, that's not a job for me. One day in the sun and I'm bloody crimson, and I don't really like spending all my summer as some sort of weird sponge-lobster, you know?

So maybe spring is better. Then I can still look forward to summer, and still get to hang around school. Not that I like school. Just got friends there. Sort of. Friends I don't hang with in the summer I mean. Yeah... friend...

And Cortland? Insecure? Wow. No way. Have you seen him? He's like this picture of cool, seriously. Don't tell him I said that. Not that he would ever believe it. But yeah, insecure? Not so much. Christ, I wish he was sometimes, but... yeah. He's got like zero openings. Think he even got Spence rattled.

@me: [Ian] Oi! I'd have you know that being an idiot is a valid life choice! I've studied long and hard to be this much of a prick, it's not as easy as people seem to think.

@CatastropheJones: [Ian] Cry? I don't cry. I mean... I don't really go back... there anymore, so there's no reason to. Because that would be stupid. I don't need to remember. Memories are for suckers... and moms I suppose. She keeps wanting to drag me. But christ, it's getting a bit morbid, really. Like she keeps poking an open wound. And I'm not into that. Poking wounds I mean. Or crying. Hell I was drunk last time. I think. I don't trust Spence to really tell the truth. But I don't think he'd lie about that. And it's not like he doesn't get it. He's an idiot a lot of the time but... he gets me.

And he doesn't tease me about it when we sober up. That counts for a lot.

Lovely as always <3 <3
I don't have much to say currently, but know that I love your comic ^-^
I do like the new look though, very nice =D

I have a question for Ian- Will you stop smoking? Seriously that's unhealthy and you're athletic.

MalinRyden, May 5th, 2015, 3:59 am     Reply

@kwippo: I don't smoke that much! Okay... maybe I do. And I suppose I should quit. But it's just hard, you know? It's not like my life is perfect right now, and sometimes it just helps me to focus, or just to have something to do with my hands. Besides, it looks kind of cool, right? I'd like to think of myself more as a dashing man of mystery than some bloody athlete. I just run, okay? It's not that big a commitment. I don't do those. Just getting through the next year's gonna be hard enough.
