RAIN p.40 - Not So Secret by JocelynSamara RAIN p.40 - Not So Secret by JocelynSamara

Ah, here I go mixing serious and silly on the same page again. Itís actually kind of a nice balance I think, since I can offer you a little bit of everything. And speaking of ďeverythingĒ, this is a VERY important page. We learn something new (or at least have something clarified) about nearly every major character.

I had actually typed up an excessively long blurb here (as usual) to spell things out a little, but I should really learn to stop doing that. So how about YOU tell ME what you learned about everybody? ^_^

(ALSO! This page has inspired a meme! [link])

Rudy, I love you, but you're an idiot.
Good story so far. :)

How does it feel to have inspired a trope?  Not everyone has done that, so you must be very proud.  n_n

First time reader here, and i just wanna say that Rudy is by far my favourite character. I know it's really bad that he's outing Maria, but apart from that, he's a pretty cool guy.
Also, I love the minimalistic style; the facial expressions really come across because there's not much to distract the reader from them <3

(BACKLOG IS LOOOOOONG, but no big deal).

For your question I might score around a 70%. But lets see.

In panel one Rudy has been somewhat abused but not to the point of it being physical. Also tells me that he expected it to end up this way and his stance says he has no regrets. Panel 2, we see Maria actually kind of like some girls. Probably talking about who's cute to them. Evidence by Maria stance, which seems like she can't be apart of the 'who do you think is cute' conversation. Same also with panel 5-7 in which shows insecurity from Maria who can't seem to like Gavin like other girls. Accompanied by Gavin actually thinking she was cute enough to be asked out. This ending with panel 8 proving that Rudy isn't to subtle about his hints. It sucks when you try to help and it sounds more like a supernova.

But I guess that is what happens, either way its still a good memory, even though this page holds more value side by side with the next page which actually explains why Maria and Gavin are still together. But I guess it happens more often as a webcomic continues as you start to see pages that rely on future pages to make sense. Unfortunately, I didn't learn much about Rain who only seems to open up more from talking to her alternative friends. (alternative=outside of normal social norms).

(God, hope this doesn't happen again. To be honest, commenting on your stuff is the best part if my day :hug: )

I have a question about this page...

In the first panel, is rudy looking down? or is that a big grin on his face and his eyes are covered i shadow like he is plotting something?

Also, I kinda feel for Gavin in this one...

Wow, Rudy, reeeal subtle.

On a side note, I'd like to comment that I really like this comic. I only just recently found it, but I've read all the other pages, and I have to say that it is really well written. I love how well you've given the characters depth, and I look forward to seeing how far the story goes.

I think Rudy's smile in the first panel should've been reduced a little.

The last panel is pure gold. :lol: All three expressions are great in their own way.

Poor Rudy, I always feel sorry for people that are teased for who they are. I can see why Maria was looking at the one girl she big in the chest area isn't she ha. So that explains why Maria and Gavin are close if thou she turned him down. I love how Rudy chimes in with she a lesbian and of course both Maria and Gavin's faces great. Interesting page I like how we learn something about everyone. I can't wait to see how they respond to the sudden revelation good job.

Because of where the hairline is, it looks like he's giving a creepy slasher smile with a shadow over his eyes in the first panel.

No wonder Maria was so quick to be friendly with Rain.

Well, Rudy can be totally... Heh... but did we already know that? And Maria isn't always the bravest person on earth... not that i'd blame her, by any means, but in most scenarios i'd see her going and kicking everyone's butt into acceptance of whatever.

This case is clearly different for her...

Honestly I don't the mix between comedy and drama, in fact that love series that mix the two up and I think it works really well on pages like this. Plus as a great man once said, 'Comedy is just a funny way of being serious'.
