Probably went too exaggerated with the punch to Dusk's head, but it looks so pretty ...

... for a certain value of pretty...


My poor Seahawks. That was a rough way to lose.


This is the THREE HUNDREDTH story page of EverydayAbnormal. Good God.

I'm going to whip up something special for you guys as a celebration ... maybe when I'm off for Emerald City Comicon...?

I know I've said it before, guys and gals, but thank you so much for following this comic through thick and thin. Your support means so much to me, and I don't know how I would have stayed with this comic so long without you.

Love you all, and I'll see you on Monday!

I don't think that's an exaggerated punch. She's gonna be mad when she comes to, though.

The sound effect might be a little exaggerated ... :P

And yeah, I don't suspect she's going to be real happy when she wakes up. I don't expect many people are going to be real happy with this. >_>

I don't think it was over done. I think Nick showed a great deal of restraint considering the level of condescension that was thrown his way... especially someone wearing a miniature top-hat and a bustier!

Ugh, punching Dusk like he just looking to make friends into enemies?

He would have been gone before she could have stopped him, and I doubt she would have even tried anyway. She made it plain she wanted to help him as much as she could. There was no good reason to hit her, except to be a dick.

Karma is a bitch, man. I just hope the kid doesnt get caught up in yours, Nick.

I feel like there are probably a few reasons Nick might have punched her ... none of them good or justified.

The karma gods are mobilizing... :P

Great page! Only thing that stood out: apparently Dusk's eyebrows disappear when she's unconscious.

Nice catch, Sky! Fixed it!

No problem! ^^

Dusk may have been able to interfere with Nick's ability to use the ring. With her unconscious, she couldn't stop him.

I'm pretty sure that Nick knows that the others would help him. This means that he has a reason not to let them. It doesn't have to be a GOOD reason, but he has one. That's the part I'm waiting to learn. :)

Congrats on Page 300. It's been a wild ride, but worth it. :)

Thanks for the kind words, Delta! :D And yeah, Nick has a reason ... and it's not good or reasonable (but maybe understandable?).

The thing here is, Dusk probably wouldn't have tried to stop Nick from getting away. She didn't need to.

She's a diviner, she is just going to use her abilities to locate him, and let the others know where to go, sort of calling in the Calvary as it were.

Strangely enough, he actually came to her for help, so on some level he knew involving her would involve at least a few others.

And now that he knows the others are looking for him, assaulting Dusk like that only ensures the agency will be more determined to track him down quickly.

Instead of knocking her cold, Nick could just as easily put his gun to her head and taken the phone away. Then grab the ring and bugged out. He didn't need to hit her at all.

Plus she would have been conscious to hear his apology.

Dusk needs to kick Nick in the nuts if he lives through this. Hard.

Just saying.

That last the tiny hat floating?! You mean it's fashionable AND doesn't mess up your hair when you wear it?! That's brilliant!
Zomburai 3rd Feb 2015, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
The pin holding the hat in got bent ... you can just make the needle out in both panels 6 and 10.

Sadly, the world is not yet ready for enchanted top hats. :P

Congrats on 300 pages! :D

And through the Stargate we go. Where she stops; no one knows...

And thanks for the congratulations, Toon! And thank you for sticking with! C:

He was humane enough not to go for the hat, at least.
Zomburai 4th Feb 2015, 5:08 PM edit delete reply
Of course, Neil. He's not a lunatic. :P
