BeeAre: An all too familiar situation: the parent goes too big-picture. Samantha’s laying down some imminent prophecy. A bi-i-i-ig reality check is coming.

    His goofy antics are really at odds with his primary antagonist status, but I’m keen to see how Bell reacts. She’s cool with robot arms and general supervillainy but too much bronzing may be crossing the line!

    • 10/08/2016 at 10:19am

      Reminds me of those times on the moon where Bell wouldn’t respond, or was disobeying, and X completely flipped his shit. Not really mat so much as completely aghast. Maybe he needed a lot of maturing later? Maybe what happens next humbles him.

    Well, this was the day you screwed up his daughters mind. Congratulation Dr. X, you’re the worlds most stupidest dad.

    Aaand the tension and atmosphere built up in the previous page got crushed in this one. Such a shame. I’d almost believe BeeAre did a NEK here.

    • BeeAre

      I find your use of “almost” as curious as the potential at all, to be frank, Pear. And that is a bit mean to NEK, I think.
      ~
      But I digress: the real reason is that I honestly felt the next page could’ve been condensed, but Bleedman wanted the next moment to have gravitas… So it does now, and is a whole page (page 17) as a moment, instead of moving onto page 18’s forward momentum immediately.
      ~
      I can’t *really* argue with him since the premise for getting this complicated backstory out is that it – on a basic level – gives Bell a lot of “screentime”, if you follow, which I am sure you do.
      ~
      So forgive me for dropping the tension a bit; it returns safely.
      ~
      But then again: Dr. X has some historical precedent for not being as terrifying when he should be (to all parties observing). That would be why I didn’t precisely fight very hard against this moment getting drawn out a bit. It’s safe to let the tension drop, briefly.
      ~
      But as always, all I can ultimately do is apologize.

        This sudden switch just really reminded me of NEK, BeeAre, that’s all. You’re not like him at all. I didn’t mean to offend you. I said it in jest, but I guess I maybe should’ve added a smiley to make my intentions clearer since intentions aren’t always clearly expressed in written messages. And please don’t apologize. I just had hoped that X’s transformation would be a bit darker, you know? As in, something that would terrify the reader just as much as Bell. But then she might’ve already been terrified enough by what was shown so far, so I guess that’s up for discussion. Aside from that, I quite like the light-hearted humor in this page. It shows that X may have outwardly changed, inside he’s still a big goof, it seems. Also a way to reassure Bell, I guess. Well, we’ll see how that turns out in the next page. Don’t think she’s happy with her ‘new’ dad. :p

        • Lolwutpear_126

          10/08/2016 at 6:34pm

          Btw, it may also give Bell some thoughts about herself to consider. I mean, now that she has seen how this chemical X has changed her father, she might start asking questions about herself, since she’s also partially composed of chemical X herself.

            Gotta love how beeare actually communicates with the readers 🙂

            @Grids: Yeah, I actually really appreciate that. I hadn’t even expected BeeAre to reply on my comment, tbh. I’m glad this comic is still going strong and that its story is still interesting and on-track.

    Bloody hell, it was totally worth it! This page is brilliant! I love every single panel of it!
    P.S. And no, I’m not kidding.

    Is the Brunette girl the Sam from the Jackie Chan cartoon? I’m sorry if that’s late as fuck.

    • athdlg

      There is no ‘Sam’ in Jackie Chan Adventures; you are probably referring to ‘Jade’ whom has black hair.
      This girl in the comics is Samantha (or Kikuhime in the Japanese version) from Medabots.

    Samantha is from Medabots

    Wow, the entire tension is completely dropped. I presumably know what will happen on the next page, confirmed that there will be “tension” again, but now that’s arguable. I do like this humor sometimes; however, for what the situation is going for, how long it’s taking for said situation to finish, and the pretty obvious what the conclusion will be, all the humor was drained. I dislike this page a lot.

    • Lolwutpear_126

      10/09/2016 at 1:38pm

      I also dislike how the tension completely broke in this page. I had expected to see something utterly horrifying. But then, as I said in my earlier comment, it was never doctor X’s intent to scare his daughter shitless. So I kinda understand him goofing around in this page.

      • athdlg

        10/10/2016 at 12:32am

        I can understand why he is acting this way, but the tension shouldn’t have been severe. If it was only within Bell’s interpretation, it would have most likely continued off of her vision and most likely she would have ignored these antiques as ‘harmless’.
        Now going back to Samantha’s memories, her vision deemed this as ridiculous, and most likely saw the whole scenario this way rather than seeing it to be ‘harmful’.
        You can arguably say that with these contrasting views, the way these pages are played out, are good. But, within Samantha’s orb, the image depicts a sinister scene going off of what Bell originally saw, still building up tension rather than immediately portraying what this instance actually is to Samantha; she thinks it’s stupid.
        This is another reason why I don’t like continuous flip-flopping between perspectives, it’s never done right to me and there is always some flaw.

          I am curious: do you think it is possible for perspective-swapping to be done properly? What would in fact be necessary to make that happen, if so? If not so, do you think that the negative space being used to contrast the tension of the perspectives is definitively harmful?

          • athdlg

            10/11/2016 at 7:41am

            It’s a personal issue, so it should be taken with a grain of salt as advice to “not do it” or “do it properly”. I wouldn’t know how to do it properly, or rather to my liking, because I’ve never seen a way.
            Let’s say, “it’s not possible”, in order to answer at least one question. From what I can personally say, it depends on the comic, the story, and current situation within said story.
            When I say it depends on the comic would mean when it’s updated/translated. If it’s an achingly slow pace, consistently switching perspectives can be confusing. Each page could be evaluated one after the other (unlike, say, an entire chapter being done at once) and “flaws” can be seen easily.
            The story is what you’d be going for. Is there a point in showing both perspectives, or is it a waste of time? Can these said situations be explained with only one perspective and the other can be presumed based on what is given? Are the two perspectives connected somehow but are still extremely different to the point where it is crucial that both are shown in order to understand the feelings/reasoning of action between both/few characters?
            Last is situation, what is currently happening in the story. What is more important to be said right now? One perspective that can insinuate another’s because of them being at the same place/time is useful for shortening the comic and getting back to another issue. Three situations are presumably connected: Bell, Samantha’s memories/death, and the bomb. The bomb was activated but nowhere to be seen or heard of. All eyes are on Bell and Samantha with little to nothing being said about the bomb that should be tying things together as why all of this is needed to be explained at once (or rather, two at the same time and one later on PROBABLY).
            In short, the perspectives are not definitively harmful, but it has easy potential in being harmful.

    I used to think back then that dr. X was inspired or originally one of those highbreed aliens from ben 10.

    also dont be bothered by the haters beeare, this page was good. dr. X always had the feeling of some guy who was smart but was easily blinded with his own interests which gave others an impression of a callous attitude.

      That would *completely* break the built-up tension in the page before this one.

    Hi I’m new!(bubbleman lolz) I can’t wait to see the boys again. Butch is my favorite. If he joins samurai jacks class and beat buttercup imma be satisfied, because the boys are stronger but on the show they get their behinds handed to them. Hopefully this won’t be the same case since they got training.

    A lot of people complain that these story sections are going on way to long. But to be honest this story moves much faster than actual comics and mangas. Unless we’re talking about One punch man.
