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.

I'm finding that, though I enjoy the exposition of two of my favorite characters in your cast, what I enjoy the most is what little these snippets reveal about Atlas.

 Learning a little something of his his role as a conqueror instead of his role as a king/husband was a bit of a shock though that ruthless element was obviously always there.

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.

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.

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.

Somehow I think Ivy looks even younger than she normally does. I find it funny that she's such a tough negotiator despite her age and cuteness.

Oh man, I cringe for Fireplace Guy. Looks violent and very painful. Anyways, nice line up of pages here! I feel a little silly to say this, but I kinda feel each new femme-cat is more pretty than the last, haha. And oh, geez, Rocky's being stitched without anesthesia huh? OOOHHHGHHH.

Such perfect expressions, especially Rocky's shocked face xD

Just one quick grammar thing. In the first panel, bubble 3, I think you left out a word "long enough (so) they could subdue him"

but it's not a big deal ^^ I love your work Tracy! <3

Thanks for the feedback.
I left the 'so' out intentionally. Although it would be more grammatically correct to include a 'so' or 'so that', it seemed to read more like natural conversational dialogue without it.

Erf, wow. I don't know enough about my own nation's history, only that the Feds apparently have a long history of doing shady things (I heard that business with Hawaii is still simmering under the surface). One can only imagine how many innocent people have been trampled beneath the boot of politics and the mere appearance of "Doing Something". But I suppose everyone, even the highest and most powerful, have to answer to God someday. I would not want to be in their shoes on that day.

On a lighter note, kudos to the young lady for her bargaining skills. Let's just keep this "Viktor" business on the down-low, yes? No need to trouble the poor soul about a minor accident with his protege...

I actually thought Viktor could not get more badass.......that is until he shoved someone into a blazing fireplace then used said person's flaming corpse to set a building on fire.

Love your use of light with the fire especially the one with Viktor with his head all downcast and the flames glowing behind him!! Crazy Good .. I didn't want to read too much of this because I have only just started to read the comic on your website up to "Lackadaisy Palaver" yes that behind so I didn't want to spoil it too much for myself but i absolutely love your work!!!

PLEASE KEEP IT UP!! :D
