@Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney, I love that you call her that now after I admitted to you I almost had her sign her note that way haha. Probably not cannon.
This page is awesome.
You might want to either publish at a lower resolution or widen your current site design – I’m using IE 7 (it’s a work thing, I’ve got Chrome at home) and the beautiful 770px wide art is being smooshed… unflatteringly, too… down to 550px wide in order to fit in the current space allowed for it.
As it’s displaying on my monitor, the black lines have scan lines running through them where they meet other colors, and the skinny font text in the previous update was all but unreadable. Now, Firefox and Chrome both shrink things down better (can’t vouch for Safari or IE8) but it’s still only a temp fix… and it doesn’t help those like myself who are seeing the ‘nasty’ version of your comic.
The general rule I’ve always gone by is… when it’s a photograph or something that’s already in a lossy format (like a low resolution jpg), scaling isn’t an issue, but if it’s high res image with sharp lines at angles or words… like, for instance, almost all webcomics, it’s bad “web form” to publish an image bigger than the space you have allowed for it.

Thank you for the suggestion, and I assure you I am looking into it, but it is not my uploads that are the problem. I’ve tried shrinking them down to 550px, heck I’ve even gone as far in my frustration to take it down past 250px. Internet Explorer still smashes it and refuses to read it correctly. I am currently looking to a solution to this, but the general consensus so far is “that’s IE for you”, so I’m not sure if I’m going to find any answers.
As of the current build of my site stands, I would have to say I recommend firefox for viewing. Safari also works fine. I don’t have chrome, but it seems to me from your post that it works as well. If you are forced to use IE, I recommend reading the updates from the RSS feed provided in the right hand column, as they were the proper resolution when I accessed them from Internet Explorer.
If you are having problems with all webcomics as suggested, I would wager the problem is with your work computer’s browser, not us. As I said, please feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed to avoid this problem in the future.
Thanks again for your concern.

i think it’s an IE sizing issue. i’m going to post on the comic press forum and see if someone over there might be able to help. it *might* have to do with the way IE sizes bicubically? b/c when you tell it to zoom at any size other than 100%, it works beautifully. it’s just the 100% that I see an issue with.

Thank you Anii for fixing this issue. It was an internet explorer sizing issue, and older versions of that browser may still cause problems. I still recommend Firefox, but updated I.E. shouldn’t crush the images anymore.
I LOVE the detail! Is Abby dreaming of getting back at her “gypsy” mom?
Your dream scenes are incredible…..
yep, this shows up just fine in firefox!
I love the detail on the gypsy mummies. very clever! and yes, I DO believe you’ve originated the concept lol. I can’t wait to see more of Abby’s dreams and find out more about her specifically! it’s just getting better and better!

@EmilytheSpoon, There will definitely be plenty about Abby. I was so torn for a long time between a male and a female protagonist and although there is another female character to be introduced soon, she was never meant to fill that role. Abby was my way of balancing those two aspects in my story, and she’s ever as much the lead role as Oliver is, maybe more so as my tendency is to have certain aspects of Oliver rooted in myself (he is the writer after all). Abby holds no such….rooting. She’s a blast to write.
I may dislike mummies, but this page is beautiful! I’m excited to see your posters!!
… This makes sense? To anyone? Regardless, zombie gypsies are awesome and you should definitely draw more of Abby’s nonsensical dreams.

well she’s pretty mad at her mom who is of gypsy origin… so i get it… x) she’s taking it out in her dreams.. hehe
I feel like there should be a crazy song blasting in the background going, “Gyyyyp-sieeeeeeeees fighting muuuumm-ieeeeeeessss!” lol
This is a totally sweet page though. I love her skirt. And the mummy’s feather hat.
dreaming kind like that means you got a full of imagination on your thoughts. That’s why it leads to a great artist.
