#662 Shot in the Dark

Okay Patreons, the long wait is over. I think I'm finally caught up and ready to move forward. By the time you read this there should be two new comics up: A Midnight Edition finishing up with Emrys and Stephanie and a brand new Greenman of Portland to continue the second half of the story. I should be on track for these monthly releases from here on out. Also, in answer to some of your recent comments about how the other members of the group can so easily accept Rich back after all that he's done...well...two reasons. First, at the time (about five years ago in the comic) they were all pretty fucked up and Rich may not have been the only one at fault or did things they may regret later on. Such was the year they shared together after High School. With that first flash of Freedom comes a lot of trial and errors. And sometimes with youth and excess you can be a bit oblivious to what is happening around you. That said, Rich is in part based on someone I knew who did some pretty crazy things under the influence of a number of drugs and yet, years later, the friends we all had welcomed him back when they realized he had cleaned up his act. So out of long time friendship, this cast (most of them) decided to give Rich a second chance seeing that he seems to be trying to better himself. Only you the reader know that there is something not quite right with him still, but the characters don't know that. They're giving him the benefit of the doubt because he does appear to have cleaned himself up and changed. Only time will tell how this all plays out. ....but it will.

  1. I think I remember who this “Rich” is based on–

    1. bohemiannightsthecomic

      I thought you might…

  2. I do feel sorry for her and Steph is probably Emrys first love and so you never know what direction that will go in

  3. Ok, but who wears an AC/DC shirt in this day and age?

  4. No, NO, NOOOOO. There was supposed to be a kiss! ( kudos to E though for not cheating … I guess? )

  5. Yeah, i guess I kinda saw this coming, but I was also hoping for the same thing everyone else commented on the past two pages. I’m afraid that is going to have to wait awhile yet. 😉

    Now, how are you going to carry yourself from here, Beth? Are you going to take this perceived rejection and tear yourself down again, or are you going to manage to hold steady? Emotions do crazy things to us sometimes.
