It's my birthday this week, so in Hobbit tradition, for no reason, here's a fresh new page with no paywall!
Happy birth-week to me!

Butter never got around to explaining, I guess, but a picture is worth a thousand words... We might find out how she did that next time.
In other news, if you guessed that by "thaumoelectric engineering", it is meant that Yamri's working on the colony power involves magic energy converted into electricity, then you're correct! Magic energy is far more abundant than even solar power, and Beta-4's tiny 42 person The Civil Speck only enjoys some modern comforts because of that abundance. However, it takes a wicked smart person (and in this case, also a wicked smart fluff monster) to run a colony reactor with very little parts ordering, no calls out to the original engineers designing the thing, and also not getting tasty food from any power company break rooms.

Soli Deo Gloria.

"Everyone misses their first jump..."

In a world with magic you'd expect some fun stuff like that more often I'd think.

It happens all the time!
...Just rarely in Yamri's field of work.

Is Leo hanging onto... her *face*? xD

Ah, I can't see the detail of the pose well enough. I had the impression that Butter made the jump with Leo's hands over her eyes in that comically inconvenient kinda way.

It's supposed to be distant enough that you don't really have to pay as much attention to it, therefore I wasn't as careful with the lines.

But your pages are so high-resolution you could hide a Waldo jumping across with them...

Somebody might just do that.

Whee! XD

But wide page is wide! This comic site generally has an issue where, if the comic page fits within the screen width, the comment text is very small indeed. It's better if the comment font is a similar size to the speech bubble font, maybe a little bit smaller.

VHV's site will get a tweak at some point, I'm sure.
Are you viewing on mobile?
If so, I have a link on the top of the page that goes to ComicFury's more mobile-friendly format.

I'm sorry for the delayed reply, I haven't been feeling well.

I'm not on mobile, but thanks. I've just checked the different fonts. There's not much difference in total line height, but "x-height" (the height of lower-case letters) of the comic's font in most of the bubbles is half-again larger than the x-height of the comment font. The x-height of the comments font renders as 10 pixels on my laptop, the speech bubble font, 15-16 pixels. That's what made me think the fonts were very different sizes. It looks like the x-height largely determines how hard I have to work to read. I didn't know that before. :) I can zoom the comic page down to 50% and still read the comic almost comfortably, but the comments are quite a strain at that size.

So is the issue that the comment text is too small, or the comic text too big?

30th Aug 2022, 2:56 PM

That they're too different. It's probably better to change the comment text because it'll change on all pages.

30th Aug 2022, 5:07 PM

I couldn't see making the comment text just as big as the comic text in speech bubbles and the like, but I hope this is better.
I don't know how to fix the comments in the blog section of my website. Further research will be needed there.
