    Shoelace reminds me of Branyaa from Mangaka-san in this comic for some reason

    I wish I could reply directly to bob's comment, but the meme you're referencing comes from the infamous "Peter Chimaera" ( story "DOOM: Repercussions of Evil" ( It's hilarious, you should check it out!

    Also, Li, no I'm going to use "Perhaps the treasure is us." at every available opportunity from now on!

    Hi, congrats on the kickstater project. I didn't know that new zealanders could participate in kickstater projects until I heard you on the national radio station. I am a writer and comic book artist who lives here in Dunedin, New Zealand. I woul love to know a little bit more about MEA Collab that you mentioned. Would they be interested in working with someone else? Thanks, and I appreciate that you are busy, very busy putting together the printed version of your web comic
    Exciting, and best of luck

    The treasure is most definitely you, but I think I'm having an obtuse day - I too am perplexed by frames 3 and 4 :(

    Reference to "The Alchemist" by Paula Coelho? Good book. Glad the kick starter went off so well.
