Unlikely Society - Chapter 8

22 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

With a couple of days off from work over the holidays, I finally found some time to finish chapter 8 of the Unlikely Society. Sadly, one of our brave heroes makes the ultimate sacrifice.

Please let me know what you think!

-Joebot

P.S. With the removal of the Your Own Creations forum, I wasn't sure where to put this. It's kinda Town-ish in the sense that the story takes place IN a town. But then it's a superhero story, which makes it vaguely science fiction-ish, so maybe it should go in the Space forum?? Ugh, I don't know. I took the safe route and stuck it under "Other."

I moved your old ones to Town, but if you'd like I can move them here to Others...it's up to you. Just let me know. So happy to see another chapter-as a fellow writer I can sympathize with finding the time.

Killing off a character? Ooooh oo ooohh!! Enough chit-chat, I gotta go read... 8-|

Nice job.... *y*

Shame on me for missing this great site until now.

I wonder if we will see the dead hero again. (superheroes have

the bad habit of coming back from the dead ;-) )

Forgive me, if this has been asked before, but how did

you make the character profiles?

Are they all made with Photoshop, or is it an actual

program/tool which can be downloaded somewhere?

These are great JoeBot! I can't believe I've been missing out on these for so long! 8-|

I'm gonna go watch the 8th one now, I hope it's as good as the others. :'-)

"Others" is probably the appropriate forum, since I suppose it's not really a Town MOC in the traditional sense. I dunno, it doesn't matter to me. We almost need a separate forum for "Stories."

I can't believe it's been three months since the last chapter. Yeesht. The dumbest thing I did was to start putting the "date posted" for each chapter, because then it really drives home the fact that I don't make new chapters very often!!

Nebsirob -- that's very true about superheroes not staying dead. How many times has Marvel brought back Jean Grey? They killed and resurrected Colossus in about a year. How long until they bring back Captain America? So, who knows ... maybe we'll see some Unlikely Society characters come back from the dead.

As for the character profiles, I made those using Microsoft Visio. It's primarily a flowchart application that I use at work, but it has a bunch of other features too, including being able to make user interface mockups. I used that to make a fake database UI. Visio is awesome; it's the only Microsoft application that doesn't make me want to gouge my eyes out.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the response...

I just searched for Visio... between 150 and 500 Euro *wacko*

Seems like I have to search for acheaper solution.

Another nice addition, Joebot! To be honest, I wasn't really upset about this death... I suppose I like the heroes you I can understand more... 8-|

Yes!! Great update. I can't wait to see what happens next. It's hard to keep update, trust me, I know. But this was a nice little addition. Moving the plot along and quite a bit of action too. It seems a little more rushed than your previous stories. You used to take more time with plot and make more work of the jokes which I liked a lot. Either way, you have me hooked. I will always follow your stories, inluding novellas I promised to read that I haven't got to yet. :-$ Thank you so much for continuing to entertain us. Your stories are great. *sweet*

That's funny, I wondered if anyone would notice that. My daughter did that a long time ago. I was not pleased.

Thanks, Hinckley! Yeah, this chapter was a little light on the jokes. Next time I promise to bring the funny.

I wish I could promise a quicker update for the next chapter, but I haven't even taken the pictures for it yet!!

And don't worry about the novella. ;-) I have a short story coming out in a print anthology one of these days, which I'm very excited about. No word yet on a publication date, but I'll keep you posted.

How long until they bring back Captain America?

Captain America's dead? X-O :'-( X-D

Great comics, I'm still only up to the 2nd 'classic comic'. X-D Although I think I've flicked through one of the other ones before, and got confused because I went from classic to new and not in order. *wacko* :-$ I'll do it right this time! :-P

~Peace

Doh !

Great as always, though a bit short. It has been hard to keep up on the story with the time gap between this one and the last episode.

Note that it could be considered as a criticism while it's not, I am just being a pure junky of your comics. I need my dose :-P

Very good comic! Poor Blackbird. :-P Although I must say, I preferred the original Unlikely Society. Will we ever see them return?

I know, you're right about the time gap. It's like watching "Lost" and having to wait a year between seasons. I wil try to be more prompt with updates.

No immediate plans to bring them back, but you never know. A few of them still hold promise (I always loved writing Hue Man and Monochromancer's dialogue), but most of them were one-joke characters that were starting to wear thin. How many Elvis jokes can I make with the Elvinator?? Ugh.

Well let's face it, we all want that duo back. I couldn't stop laughing at reading comments behind Hue Man's back. I think the new characters have a lot of perspective though. I can't wait to see how you'll use them in the future.

Don't worry about the updates, it shows you're having a life (which is good for future insipiration). And there's still reasonnably clever and the S-team for daily lego comics updates

Sorry for being so late!

I really like the new comic *y* They lost a precious member, and they got fired, but I'm sure they'll be back and they'll stop the aliens (maybe 8-| )!

I still don't understand what 'good' Death Pli

The role of the mechanic (Jack) will be made clear in the next chapter. It's almost entirely about him.

I suppose I'll have to be patient, then :-$

An "aged Mr. Fister?" You think so? An interesting theory ....

You know, I work in the University: we always come up with interesting theories *wacko* X-D
