SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor PART 2 by Girl-on-the-Moon SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor PART 2 by Girl-on-the-Moon


Do comment. Comics that may or may not stir emotions are a new area for me and I feel a bit insecure. In case you couldn't tell. :B

Oh and thanks again to Hamish Steele who posed for man reference. AND A HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY TO JAMES!

2014 EDIT: I got rid of the phonetic "Scottish" accent because OMG it was bad and bad and I AM SO SORRY SCOTLAND I WON'T DO IT AGAIN I PROMISE. Just y'all keep in mind he's got a Scottish accent. Do that in your heads. Thanks.

Your art style and creative use of Timelord technology made the page way more clever and thought out than most other comics. You have a very special type of comedic timing that shone through even on a serious panel like this and gave it that mark of your style that just screams SftT. I understand that you're trying to make them very much Scottish, but we're at the point in the comic where we get their accents, and you're overdoing it a bit. Not every word needs to be spelled with an accent - it makes things very hard to understand. However, the message and storyline here was very clear, and I love how you do sidestories along with the main comic. Not only does it tie everything together, but it makes us think about all of the characters and how they tie in, bringing the comic to a deeper level. Overall, very well done.

I'm going to start with critiquing story and writing, since that's really what I'm good at for the most part.
I like the one-sided conversation at the beginning. Normally in that situation, it's a touch harder to pull it off well, especially in order to easily convey what exactly's going on, yet you've pulled it off quite well. It's easy to understand what happened, and it's done in a believable way. As James gets introduced, I like him trying to speak Universal (and that you have a universal language. Not many people do, I've found), before Joyce nixes it. It makes for a lighter moment in the middle of this more serious comic. I quite enjoy the story so far, and find it quite interesting. The only thing I'd be curious about is how the Angel got him off of Galifrey, considering I thought nothing could get in or out the time lock, yet that's relatively minor. With Joyce's accent, it seems to be a touch wrong in places, yet I have a feeling that's simply because I've listened to different people speak and there's just that different small difference.
I love the artwork on this page, especially in the larger middle middle panel. One concern with it would be that you have rain spatters even on his back, where there probably wouldn't be much (if any) on his back, where the rain probably wouldn't hit due to the angle of how it's traveling.
I really enjoy these characters in the 'verse. There're very enjoyable, and I can't wait to see more of them.

Wait a minute...he can be sent back by the Angel......but his Tardis cannot follow him through the Space-Time distortion caused by him moving thought the vortex without a capsule at light speed...thus freeing him from the time lock....what is he using ....a Type 70 mark 1

I really love this. I mean, it's just a great story, I think, and it has this great emotional depth to it, and can I just say, I think that the facial expressions are spot on. Absolutely brilliant.
