(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.
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 admire you
Its truly ONE OF A KIND!
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
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.
Your level of detail is incredible.
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...
[sign appears that reads: "Just in case you couldn't tell, sarcasm."]
You're just wonnnnnderfull and the effort you DO put into it is amazing. I really miss this comic between uploads though. Aaaah drives me nuts hah
And like so many others - Viktor's character becomes more deep, dark, and beautiful. He's an incredible creature!
And the panel with Viktor and the flames as he was coming out of the fight was AWESOME.
and the reverends' hand when he was handing the kid tea... I could almost feel the bones on his hand through the screen. Well done!
Love yer work always! =^_^=
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!!
