POOR JEFF TO THE /MAX/. I had a lot of trouble coming up with what sound effects to use here, but I'm rather pleased with what I ended up choosing. Even if doing them killed me a bit inside because c'mon.

I think the last page was a new record for most voted on page of WA (19 votes)! I blame Jeff and his Jeffness...

It's also worth noting, at this point and time, every single /MAIN/ hero and villain have been introduced. The pieces are all set...
(There'll still be new characters here and there, just not /main/ ones)

The rest are all cannon fodder!

Ha, great backstory on Jeff: highly ranked in the Top Ten of friendly zombies!

Hahaha! Well, in some cases, quite possibly!

Heh, thank you! T'was a sad one to do regardless! I'm glad it's (almoooost) over! I'm overall pleased with the result regardless of how painful it was.:D

Wait, how did he come back to life?

Heh, well, it's just a WA mechanic, so to speak...

I touched on it once within the first 10 pages somewhere, very briefly, but basically, as a very rare occurrence, sometimes the dead may come back (as zombies of course). Usually after being exposed to the right made up fantasy chemicals and/or enough radiation at some point in their lives, not necessarily anytime close to their actual death. There's a bit of mystery to it, and no one in WA is 100% sure how it works; If they did, everyone would be trying to re-create the process to "cheat" death.;D

There's a touch of randomness to it as well; If Jess was exposed to the exact same things as Jeff, she might not come back, even though they're twins besides. But the plague doctor killing him had nothing to do with him actually coming back; In fact it might well have been an unwanted and unexpected side effect for them...

Sorry it wasn't properly explained!I'd meant to leave it a bit mysterious, but I think I only made it disappointing. Thing is, even Jeff and the plague doctor don't know why he came back.:D

Awwww Jeffu nooooooooo T^T;;; dangit...

Poor guy! D:

really cool to know all the main pieces have been set on the board, btw! Though for all we know, it was Felix behind the mask all along.... >___>

(pls don't do that to me though i will cry blood if you do)
Seabiscuit 26th Jan 2015, 11:13 AM edit delete reply
Seabiscuit
Haha, yes :(
I felt so bad doing this one, more so than the last!

HAH! I'll only confirm that the red hood isn't Jess or Benny boy- If I confirm or deny any more, it'll be narrowed down way too much.;D
rufiangel 26th Jan 2015, 11:39 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Wow, that... seems to imply it IS one of the cast members we've already met. Which is crazy. >____>;;;; WHAT.

Okay, I will start accusing everyone any time they act suspect. XD;;;

Seabiscuit
HA HA HA!>:D

It could be anyone. Anyone! Uh, except, I guess, Jeff (or Jess/Benny) ;D

Poor Jeff. Murder victim. :-(

We all love you, Jeff!

Murder victim indeed. And in such a horrible way!

Yes we do ;D

I will second Dew Whiskers' comment. Masterfully done backstory. Plus it's nice to see Jeff chit-chatting at the very end of this part.
Seabiscuit 26th Jan 2015, 11:17 AM edit delete reply
Seabiscuit
Hehe. Thank you! His backstory probably saddens me the most to do. At least, so far.
I thought having present day Jeff speaking at the end might be good idea, glad it turned out to be so!;D

So that's how things came to pass. There are still some questions about who and why...but hey that's how you keep people reading to find out these things. I don't know who would want to kill nice ole Jeff.
Seabiscuit 26th Jan 2015, 11:18 AM edit delete reply
Seabiscuit
Hehe! Indeed. Oh, I just can't wait until the reveal! But it's soooo far off.:(
(Who indeed? He's like the most innocent nicest guy ever!)

Making comics is suffering!

Guess they'll have to keep an eye out for red plague doctors now.
Dis page makes me very sad... ;_;

On a different note, glad to hear all the characters are on the board now. You've got yerself a very interesting cast to work with! ;D

Seabiscuit
Heheh! Glad it sparked some emotion!;D

Thank you! They're pretty fun to work with!:D
And now I'm looking forward to introducing dem side characters...!

At least this didn't go out on a Friday, huh.;D

Haha! That would be too cruel ;)
Please never, NEVER do that to us :(

Haha :(
I'll try! I'm pretty bad when it comes to planning out pages for specific days of the week, so I won't do it on /purpose/ at least.;D

I have so many people that hate me I'd have a hard time narrowing down who killed me too.

Hahah, I guess having a lot of enemies would indeed complicate things.

Those are the questions, eh! We shall see.
There's no way it can be a /good/ reason, I mean, it's JEFF! :(
