Lackadaisy Palaver by tracyjb Lackadaisy Palaver by tracyjb
Latest page. Rocky, Freckle and Wick.

Starting a Model T was quite the little ordeal. You can try your hand at it here (if you're as amused by that sort of thing as I am):

And if this page doesn't make any sense to you, it may be because the context of the prior pages is needed. Those can be found at the Archive
...if it still doesn't make sense after that, well, then my work here is done.

This has to be my favorite comic of the strip (which I am now re-reading...again...and I've asked my cousin for a paperback copy for Christmas! The hardbacks were all sold out....)!
"THEY TOLERATE MEEE *skreeee*"
Oh, Tracyjb, I love the way you do what you do. >w<

P.S. The car - "Old Lizzy" - like in "Cars"!

Ms. Butler, have you by chance read the back story on the "St. Louis Blues"?  The man who wrote it, W.C. Handy, recalled, in an interview, sleeping on a cobblestone street during a period of homelessness and poverty.  I thought it was interesting when I read that.  I thought I saw some kind of connection with St. Louis and a homeless protagonist.

Secret door, "Watch it Fancy Pants"... that was my favorite on the sketch page prior to this, and still gives me a giggle. The whole makes sense to me, and though it's been a while, I hope your book printing is going well. It's such a high point.

I just adore your work Tracy. I always look foreward to the next frame and is always a highlight when you upload one. Your art style is so facinating and the mute colors you use is perfect.

I love the "THEY TOLERATE MEEE" part. XD He didn't say "like" or "love", but rather "tolerate". XD Cracks me up.

I think I love this comic a little bit more.

D'awww, poor Freckle. He's all freaked out. ): And Rocky, afraid that his cousin is going to give away the whole Lackadaisy speakeasy. D:

..And Wick, twirling his pocket watch in the store. I really liked that little detail; with his large circle in the first panel and how it (the circle) grew smaller as he noticed the door with interest. xP

Awesome page! Your backgrounds are fantastic - I loved the store in the first couple of panels. :)

Huh...great comic as usual. I've been following the story and i think its awesome. Just a quick question: Would either WWI or WWII play a role in this as either a flashback or as something for the future. I remember seeing your scrapbook deviation where it had a picture of Victor in a WW1 like setting, will that have any standing in the story?

Announcer voice: Will Freckle, half-crazed with guilt and disgust, tell all and destroy the establishment? Will Rocky have to find another group of people to tolerate his zany antics? Find out...on the next exciting episode, of Dragonball Z!
