Phew, busy week.

So, a few quick notes. Yeah, Go has heat rays. He's usually too NUTBARS in fire mode to do anything technical, he usually just wades straight into melee--give a man a goal, though, etc. Basically, the better Go gets at staying focused when he changes, the more useful he's going to make himself.

No, he's not dual weilding fire flowers. ...Yet. The second flower's stashed in his belt/sash/thing, so expect that to crop up later. LOL, CROP. (AND IT'S A FLOWER, SEE)

Palma is her last name, if you're wondering.

Ok, we know that pianta are part plant(or look like it), and we know that the lab created a master plant that can control other basic plant through is mind. So maybe all of the conversation between Palma and "Mouth Breatha", as she call it, take place in her mind. He try to seduce her because he can't control her(she not a basic plant).

This is an excellent new series. The art style is uniquely fabulous, and the characters are instantly likable and engaging.

I am leaving for Boot Camp tomorrow, and I am really going to hate not getting to see how this pans out for over two months.

Keep up the outstanding work.

By the way...

Don't feel like you have to justify yourself to the audience in the Author Notes just because something isn't immediately justified or obviated in the panels.

The audience does have a certain amount of trust in you as a creator. We are happy to bear with you on a few things, especially if they're going to be made clear in the comic itself sooner or later. If you still think there's a material lack of clarity on something, first try to make it more clear in the panels.

If that fails, *pretending* to know what you're doing can take you nearly anywhere you want to be!

Awesome comic, I hope you keep this up. Also, may I suggest adding an "about" and "cast" page?

I like the comic so far; just saw it today and read through it to current. I have this to say though about the author's notes at the end of the strips. Don't explain things! Let your readers speculate...Let us find out these things as they pop up. Who cares if some folks think that you are searching for plot devices are doing an *ss pull? You know where your story is going and I have to say that as far as I can see...its a very good place. Keep up the good work.

@teachernine

I disagree-- there are some things that just need to be said to be understood and liked. Especially in a comic like this-- a new comic every week instead of being able to read the whole thing in one go.
Spoilers are not always evil. Only most of the time.

@Mythus
I don't believe that you should have to explain everything to the reader. It lessens the "Oh Wow! That's what it meant" moments later on.
I was just saying from my experience that most readers don't want to be spoon-fed the plot. Let them think for themselves ^^.
