Here we go! Let's start a new comic, yeah? Yeah! So much mystery! So much! Welcome to The New Normal!

Page One: Sunday, February 1, 2018 - 1:45 PM

Food Place, coming soon to a town near you! They serve food and stuff, I guess! Bacon salads are apparently a thing there!

So here we go! Rollin' along with page one! Who's this guy? Why's he look like that? Why's he think he won't be able to pass as human? Why's he think he does pass as human? Why's he ordering a meat salad? Wait...it's apparent that that meat salad is his, right? Awww, man, that's some potential storytelling fail right there, let me tell you.

Meat salads. For when you want a salad, but also mostly meat.

Oooh, who's the Fancy Man? Why's he so fancy? And why the hell does this guy in blue think he's so interesting? I mean, yeah, he's fancy and all, but dude, you got some of your own shit going down, don't you? Like those hands? Do they even work? What about your thumbs?

Heh, yeah, it's weird trying to talk about these pages with no background information in the comic, yet!

Woo-hoo! Halfway through the prologue! This page's backgrounds brought to you by the power of TRACING, particularly the "EAT" sign! Awwww yeah...you don't wanna know how much extra background I have. Oof.

Shine's thought process: "He seen me! Why's he still fuckin' off!?" Yeah, the blue hoodied guy goes by Shine. Spoilers, I guess! Wonder what the Fancy Man's so worried about?

Hopefully it comes across that Shine's losing his ability to make human sounds. Which, yanno, bummer. He is, however, gaining another way to communicate instead. THERE'S ALSO SOMETHING GOING ON WITH HIS BACK. What the hell's up with that?

I'm so excited to finally have Shine running around on all fours! Let's do this proper!

This update was delayed by Fur Squared 2018, or more specifically, me not planning/working around it quite right, and my spontaneous adoption of my new dog, Carmen, from HAWS, the charity Fur Squared was raising money for this year. She is quite the cupcake!

Aww, he's so angry.

Well, that's the end of the prologue! I know I'm excited!

You should copyrite that name and slogan before someone grabs it

Victor_Procyon

There’s no copyrighting of names or short phrases. You could try to trademark them, though.

i see that character more a male than a female :o may ill see better more ahead x3

Sonicspirit

Heh, yeah, he's a trans guy and the transformation is in the progress of causing his physical sex to line up with his internal gender. Which is always neat! But yeah, no big bouncing boobs migrating down into giant balls, or something. Though that could be fun to draw just for the hell of it!

Army1

probably, yea XD

cenrji

Looking forward to see how the rest of the comic goes. Already fairly interesting.

Sonicspirit

Thanks!

Mori

need golden rings to eat? ;)

Sonicspirit

^_^ Sounds crunchy.

Army1

idk why but at the lasts panels, i've almost thinked that man would turn forward (in a blink) to us and that was the slenderman in colored edition xD but still good stuff o3o also funny how his hand goes trough the food and the table x3 (also if as good idea was that since he cannot touch meat food, he can use his head, no?_? or will blend it? x3, actually may will go trough again^^" the "blend it" was a pun.)

Sonicspirit

^_^ Shh, no pointing out how art fails are making this difficult to understand. He's not actually phasing through anything, and he can touch the meat, I just drew it dumb, and should've had it more obvious that the meat just tastes really bad to him.

Army1

hehe ok xD but probably because the meat could be expired x3 that chef Gordon Ramsay will say that is un-frozen xD (which is a classic o3o) and that then it will visit the entire kitchen even if is not drawn xD he can smell the error miles away x3 good art is good :3 and it happens to some artist to do some errors for a centimeter,(or millimeter^^") just keep up the good work o3o *gives you a magnify glass, made good for artists :3* ♥

surii

Don't think I don't see what's going on with those legs o.0

Sonicspirit

His insteps have grown really long, he's basically just shoved his toes into those shoes and is walking with his heels, which are on their way to becoming hocks, hanging out of them.

Hans_Niemand

Hmmm, does excitement exacerbate the change?

Army1

uuuh :o now he got feral >_<

Zackman1996

Is that a Lincoln MKZ?

Sonicspirit

Great eye! It is! It sorta happened by accident, but it fit the character, so there we are!

Crissa

Neat idea! ...There seems to be a missing bubble or sound effect or frame where he dislikes his dinner, tho?

Stevep

Hey, I've seen horses eat dry cat food, ham sandwiches, half a hamburger...you name it, they'll chow down on it. Cattle and deer in the wild will eat baby chicks out of any nests they find hidden in the grass, probably for the calcium.

But maybe a magical alicorn has a more delicate stomach.

Sonicspirit

Haha, yeah, it's always amazing what herbivores will eat given the opportunity! He'd probably be alright eating it, but his new perception of the flavor put him off it.

Army1

so funny the new panel x3 and is angry x3 the dad and the child were priceless xD but at least something funny will going on :D

A guy turning into a horse goes to McDonald's and encounters Obama who is also likely to be transforming into something.
