I think we all know where this is going. Shawn was part of the Les Enfants Terribles project. I knew it.

Hahaha! Yeah, the first words on the next page will be:
"Hello, brothah."

And I TOTALLY screwed up the page order last week - I jumped into Chapter 10 too early. -_- Sorry if it confused anyone, but I think it's all fixed now.

Soul, you have fanart?! Sweet! I'm trying to the rest of my site put together, including a contact section as well as links. My current email is faythstorm at gmail. Mailing things to gypsy at hoodiegypsy will also make it to me. I need to pull ahead a little in my pages and get some fanart done myself. :)

In other news someone on the blog mentioned that I apply to have a link on Tomgeeks. The thought kinda scared me cause that's a huge webring. I've been kinda tossing the idea around in my head, but I'd like to get some more opinions if anyone had any thoughts to share.

*dashes off an email*

I'm also considering applying to Tomgeeks once I start updating. I frankly think it's a good idea; even if you don't hang out in the forum, you still get your comic's face out there in something that gets a lot of traffic; publicity, especially the free kind, should be taken advantage of.

GRAAARRRRGGGG! What a place to stop!!!!

I just finished going through this. It's quite a piece of work. I'm looking forward to the rest.

I have to admit, I've been seeing the thread title "Skipping Tomorrows Webmanga" from time to time, and honestly thought you meant you weren't going to get your next day's work posted. I never realized it was the title until I finally looked inside the thread.

Oh well... Good stuff.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May He cause His face to shine upon you.
May He lift up His countenance and grant you peace.

Hey Soul ... I'll apply if you do!

Eric, I never, ever thought of that before. I guess the title might be a little weird. Hopefully people kind of poke into the thread really fast anyway. thanks for reading!

Oh, and I updated ... in order this time.

"The Spaz" would be a great title.

She can die, explode, and then shout "THE SPAAAAAAZZZZZ!!!!!"

Because nothing solves vivid hallucinatory inner conflicts like well-applied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. XD

Gipy have you ever thought about publishing this? If you did I would SO buy a copy. Heck I might even help fund the puplishing!

Thank you all for reading! (I updated, btw.)

Susan, thanks so much for joining CAA! I hope you'll like it here. :)

As for the question of Skipping Tomorrows ever going to print the answer is probably never. For a couple reasons:

1. It's a visual progression of my skills - quality in the beginning will not match the end in both art and story telling.

2. It's created specifically for the web - you need crazy high resolution and certain color standards for print if it's going to look professional.

I'm very flattered that you both like it well enough to see it in book form, but think of it this way: it's always going to be free to view online. :) Maybe when it's finished I'll crunch individual chapters into .pdf format so they can be downloaded. Personally I would love to be published someday, but I still have a lot to learn before I would feel right about actually selling my work.

Again, thanks for reading!

*edit* Sorry for the end of the blood and gore, Rai and Shatter - hope you'll both forgive me. :P

Those aren't reasons! Those are excuses. My sister thinks you should publish this to by the way.

Any way a while back there where some really REALLY kool wall papers on this sight. I down loaded them and used them for a while. I wanted to put them on my computer at work but now I can't find them. Dose any body know where I can find these. I think they where made by Ashley but i don't remember.

Any clues any one.

wave.

(Thanks God for Apple OS wide spell check)

After following this for a few weeks, I've come to a conclusion. I strongly object to one thing in your banner. It says "Skipping Tomorrows - An Amateur Webcomic."

There is nothing amateur about this, Gypsy! Great story!
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May He cause His face to shine upon you.
May He lift up His countenance and grant you peace.

I still think Jen is a vampire. She will release control art restrictions to level 1 in the next chapter.

This did not in any way stop Fujishima-sensei from publishing Oh, My Goddess. Take a look at the first few chapters and compare them with the latest. The difference in skill is stunning.

For a more webmanga related example, Megatokyo has gone through a lot of improvements, and yet Gallagher did nothing except touch up the early pages. Five volumes on the book shelves so far.

And I cite "Argon Zark" for this. The 'Dead Tree Edition' doesn't hold a candle to the Web version, but it is fine, nonetheless.

Publish this some day. Some of my absolute favorite volumes are things that few people have heard of, published on a shoestring budget and distributed largely at venues like "Small Press Expo".

(If you can find it, check out "The Complete Geisha" by Andi Watson. Actually, I just checked on Amazon and there are a few used editions available from resellers.)

Thanks very much for the vote of confidence, Eric. I appreciate the encouragement. Maybe at some point, I'll reconsider, but I find it a challenge to keep up with just drawing and updating - I dunno how well I'd do with trying to throw publishing in the mix.

There's a new fanart up by our very own Shinja.

Well, yeah. He's dying his naturally Aryan blond hair brown so as to draw less attention.

Gypsy!!!!! Your manga is AWSOME!!!! It goes right into my favorites. My mom and I are both fans of your web-comic and we can't wait for you to update. No worries, no rush; I understand that creative writing takes time (I'm writing my own manga) I have sent you a couple of e-mails before (you can PM me for more details). Anyway, did I mention your manga is awsome!!!!! It makes me laugh and cry all at the same time!!!!!

I can't tell you how beautiful I think your comic is. It's such an inspiration to see an amateur webcomic artist create such an emotional story. I hope that my own project can try to even come close to this. I was devastated when I realized that it wasn't completed yet, and now I have to suffer waiting for updates. Please update soon!
