Lackadaisy Transgression by tracyjb Lackadaisy Transgression by tracyjb
The four most recent Lackadaisy pages. Sorry they're so few and far between. Always wishing I had more time for this thing.

(The Palmer Raids mentioned in the text were something of an extension of the Red Scare and a brand of xenophobia stoked by the Great War. In 1919 and 1920, under then Attourney General Alexander Palmer, thousands of individuals were arrested, detained and in some cases deported, often for mere association with leftist organizations.)

Comic updates and other Lackadaisy stuff can be found on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook too.

holy crap, so glad I found this on dA- now I can tell you how much I love this particular part!  This is probably my favorite part of the story so far, and that panel of Viktor in the spreading blaze... that is my favorite panel from the entire comic so far.

The thing I've come to love most about Lackadaisy is the complete moral failure of everyone involved.  Everyone loves Calvin because he's adorable, but he's a murderous psychopath.  Ivy may act na´ve, but she has demonstrated a much firmer grasp of things than she typically lets on, and she's anything but innocent.  Even Rocky, motivated as he is by "love," is quick to enact petty and violent revenge when aroused.  But despite it ALL, I still love them.  All of them.  In spite of all my better judgment, I find myself willing to forgive or overlook all of their shortcomings so I can keep rooting for them.

That's how you  know this is some good writing.  Despite their inherent villainy, you can't help but like these relatable, fallible, flawed, imperfect, and wonderfully human characters, as they struggle to survive in a cold, uncaring, and very real world.

awww little Ivy is so cute! I want to hug her! Look at those big eyes!

I loved this page. I really like the character designs of this family, esp. Elsa. Love the shot of Viktor on the left as the story transitions back to the present. These are gorgeous.

Quite a stunning use of very little colour.

Oh yes, and my two cats look almost EXACTLY like Bobby and Abelard! I mean, Chicovski's got Bobby down to the expression and eye colour and all. Blackie is - well - blacker than Abelard, but they've got the same shape and dour mien.
