Nina doesn't HATE Rocky. She did raise him, after all. He, just like with everyone else pretty much, gets on her nerves. XD She does worry about his influence on Freckle, for sure. I'm sure she just wishes he would make better choices.
Oh my goodness, I absolutely adore Aunt Nina! Just out of curiosity, have you read Steinbeck's novel, East of Eden? If you have, she reminds me of Liza Hamilton, who's the old-fashioned irish mother who feels as though smiling and laughter is a gateway to sin. we're reading it in my english class.
Where are you from? If you're from the U.S., you ought to know about the Civil War (or War of Northern Aggression if you're from the South), how Dixie refers to the South land and who General Robert E. Lee was. Didn't you ever read a history book or have anyone teach you American History?
Do you mean a book order? If you're in the US, it usually seems to take between 4 and 10 business days to arrive. Outside of the States, it's a little harder to gauge - it would depend on where it's being shipped.
No, not Nathan Lane. Too high and effeminate. You'd have to do some searching about the streets to find some unknown voice that fits. The closest actor voice I can think of would be Seann William Scott's when he played that opossum in the Ice Age series. I also know a guy who's voice fits pretty well with Rocky's appearance, actions and dialogue.
I have been keeping tabs on your on-line comic for a while and have loved every single page! You have kept fantastic detail to the time setting as well as the mindset of the time. I have enjoyed a lot of your art since the days of your fantasy works. In fact, was able to get the original art of the character Anton d'Avoirdupois from the Iron Claw RPG.
This has been one of the best web comics I've read in my life. I love the historical reference and colorful characters, each one having their own set of merits and flaws. While a lot of it is light-hearted, and you've occasionally drawn the characters in the humorous fashion of older cartoons (especially when Rocky makes a blunder in this situation), you still don't excuse the harshness and violence this life they lead brings them. It breaks away from the typical "Cats Don't Dance" feel and gives it something an older audience can enjoy as well. I'm curious to see where this story is going and how it's going to turn out for everyone.
I'm also curious as to see how each of them would react to the 30's Great Depression, the 40's World War II, or, for that matter, how their kittens would react to the 50's Cold War or 60's social revolutions.
But anyways, I just recently discovered where I could actually read them in succession. I'm on page eleven now and plan to read more soon. Keep up the great work; your artistry is flawless and your writing is genius.
