I wanted to make this post to gush over how amazing Bridget is, but I realized that it would be too unnecessarily long and incoherent. So in brief: she has taken my completely incoherent script directions and made something absolutely beautiful. Bridget, you rule. :)

Already have some ideas for the next arcs… what do you hope/predict will happen? I promise to avoid stealing ideas that are better than mine. ;)

    Obviously, a time machine, and some mission that requires going back to the civil war, undetected by the locals.

      I KNEW this post was a bad idea… so tempted.
      (You so know Charlie’s secret dream is to be Dr. Who’s companion…)

      • wynne says:

        YES!!! Go Charlie! Live your dream!!! And take me with you!!!

        As for the next storyline, I agree with Keelhaul and vote for a Tess story. It would be a very nice transition from Ben’s, given the last page. Then maybe you could do a Jeremy story for a nice, cyclical type of thing. Or maybe you could do a bunch of shorter stories, maybe focusing more on the minor cast? Or maybe something that tells us what the crew gets up to during the winter, when running around just isn’t practical?

        You have just reached a new level of awesomeness in my books for making a Doctor Who reference.
        Congratulations. ;D

    I’m happy with anything you guys do! Seriously, this comic is awesome. I’d love for something nautical… as unlikely as that would be. Maybe a road-trip somewhere with tall ships! (*coughsandiego*) And tall ship reenactors! They can meet their nautical counterparts!

    • Bethany says:

      THIS. Definitely something nautical would be wonderful, and there ought to be some great stories you could do involving the use of ironclads in the Civil War. The CSS Manassas did fight on the Mississippi, after all.

    • Rachael says:

      like those attempts at a submarine during the war… i listened about it on a bookontape on my way to the parthenon in nashville, apparently it’s a huge mystery how the last submarine sunk and what happened… however i would find it awkward to have a huge random nautical scene unless they had a vacation or something… go summer?

  3. Miriam says:

    Weddings? I just love love love weddings! As to which couple, hmm, I’m open…


    (wait for it)

    Something that involves Jeremy and Ben having to dress in period-appropriate drag. ;)

  4. Keelhaul says:

    I vote for more of Tess’s backstory, and maybe some more development with Ben and his brothers, seems like something was left unfinished with that. It would also be very ironic and create some great tension if someone besides Charlie left after being offered a job somewhere else. That’s all I’ve got.

  5. Ali says:

    I want to see more about Tess and the new man in her life. I thought the Tess and Ben issue wasn’t worked out totally. Maybe some closure for Ben and a fun love story for Tess! Charlie has her man, so Tess needs hers!! <3

  6. Bethany says:

    What if the museum caught on fire?

  7. Yochva says:

    I mentioned this in my page comment, but:

    I PREDICT a darker Ben, or at least a more thoughtful and moody Ben.

    I HOPE for more Jeremy! Please?

  8. Leah says:

    I would love to see more Jeremy~ :>

  9. Jee says:

    Jeremy please!
    i wouldn’t mind knowing a bit more about him and his childhood

  10. Jeanette says:

    Call me a parrot, but I’m going to have to agree with the few posts above mine:

    Travel TeamIn 27, the Warriors win Danny’s first game as coach in dramatic faioshn. The author, Mike Lupica, set this dramatic win up earlier in the book with a disappointment. Explain what Mike Lupica did earlier in the book. I think that Mike did that to get the us ready for the win.In 28, there is an intense scene b/w Ty and Mr. Ross. When Tess and Danny later reflected on that scene, they called it the “The end of the beginning.” What do you think the author, Mike Lupica, is doing with that statement by Tess and Danny?I think that he was trying to say that the end of the loosing streak and the beginning of the wining streak.

  12. Apparently this is what the esteemed Willis was talkin’ ’bout.

  13. Now that’s subtle! Great to hear from you.
