This page took an annoyingly long time to draw.

Last panel is just that way, I think.

I, at least, cannot make any sense from it.

Fusion has no idea, either.

Happy (official) 100th page!

This marks the third comic that I've been around for on this milestone. Never Mind the Gap, Space Pulp, and now Scrub Diving!

It's been fun watching your style grow and change a bit through each comic over the past few years.

My art is so erratic.

You should read Cheer on Imgur

Like many others, I found Cheer on 4chan many years ago, along with one or two others from View.

Even if your art is erratic, it has a consistent style. You can still see vast improvements in your techniques since the beginning of NMtG or Cheer.

It's probably most noticeable from beginning to end in Space Pulp to see how your coloring skill improves with each page, testing new techniques, etc.

Ok, so a few things. 1. Sean's nipple looks hard in the last panel. 2. Alis looks like she complained about that hurts. 3. View, you are a gray artist and probably the worst tease ever.

I have no idea what "gray artist" means, but I assume I should thank you.

View, I hate you. I had such hopes of a normal voice coming back... LOL!

So she's "hwee"ing a lot here, apparently. Tried making that noise and was surprised that it could be a really sharp diaphragm-heavy shallow breathing.

If that's what you were going for, that's some damn fine onomatopoeia-work!

Hweee is how it sounds.

It must be 1:00 o' clock or it must be comic page 100? :)

I just noticed that her patch is red ... is that color code for "worn out" ?

Offcourse, he other butt cheek is also red, but for other reasons. Nice palm print there. :)

DARNIT, VIEW!

MAKE ALIS' 'AQUASPEAK' DIALOGUE MORE READABLE!!! (>_<);

....Just kidding! :D

That's one of the thinks I like about this comic and Alis. Her speech is so unreadable on this page that it is up to the reader to figure out what she said:

Take an educated guess based on Sean's dialogue preceding Alis' responses

*OR*

Load the pages into Photoshop (or someting like it) to enhance the image to make the dialogue more readable.

But that would spoil the fun and appeal of this webcomic if that was done.

But seriously, could you make Alis' dialog like this just a TEENY TINY bit more readable where you can JUST BARELY make out what she said. Alis' dialogue in panels 2, 3 and at the end of panel 6 are essentially inscrutable.

But then again this may be your version of the high-pitched, dolphin dialogue used by Madison the mermaid (Daryl Hannah) in one scene in SPLASH (1984).

It's perfectly legible!

Hmmm, could be a subtle display issue on my end. But this only happens when you have Alis using 'aquaspeak'. When she speaks normally, everything is fine.

By the way, Sean's facial expression in panel 2 was priceless! I was INSTANTLY reminded of PEANUTS artwork style crafted by the late, great Charles M. Schulz

Here is the URL to a bunch of tribute comics done to honor him after he passed away:

This one there

Would have been a GREAT way to end PEANUTS as the last panel of a Sunday comic had Schulz lived to give the comic a proper finale. On his Wikipedia page

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_M._Schulz

Schulz had this to say about that topic:
(I would use italics for the blockquote below but I don't know if the comment form here properly accepts HTML markup tags and I don't want to take a chance on messing this post up.)

Schulz was asked if, for his final Peanuts strip, Charlie Brown would finally get to kick that certain football after so many decades (one of the many recurring themes in Peanuts was Charlie Brown's attempts to kick a football while Lucy was holding it; Lucy, of course, always pulled it back at the last moment, causing Charlie Brown to fall on his back). His response: "Oh, no! Definitely not! I couldn't have Charlie Brown kick that football; that would be a terrible disservice to him after nearly half a century." Yet, in a December 1999 interview, holding back tears, he recounted the moment when he signed the panel of his final strip, saying, “All of a sudden I thought, 'You know, that poor, poor kid, he never even got to kick the football. What a dirty trick — he never had a chance to kick the football!'"

(End blockquote)

Truly Charles Schulz was a legend and an inspiration to all people everywhere on Planet Earth who came in contact with him in person or through his long-running comic strip hailed as "the longest running single narrative story done by one person" containing nearly 18,000 individual comic strips published from October 2, 1950 to February 13, 2000.

Let's find out!
Should we use <i>pointed</i> brackets work?
Or should we instead use square brackets?
Only one will work.
Or maybe both.
