New Page #41!
Al's been shooting guns since he was old enough to drink booze.
Look for my Anime Boston write up on Monday!
Best. Page. EVER!!!!
I love those two…but it’s about to get very sad. :/
Yes. The hardcore Joseph groupies may want to skip the next couple pages. That or have several boxes of tissue on hand. :(
Knowlton and Warren at their best. They’re both looking mighty fine here ;D
“I love the smell of apples on gunpowder in the morning…”
I am totally in love with panel 4. Best Knowlton image ever . Not looking forward to a certain upcoming page, though…
“Remember, if anyone asks, it was like that when we got here and we’ve never even seen a King James Bible.”
Dude don’t make me spew water all over my keyboard. lol
You can totally feel the action in both this page and incentive page! I love it! And our boys certainly seem to be in their prime! How fantastic!
Neither one is being visited by that ominous red line, that’s for sure!
Well, THEY aren’t, anyway.
…be that foreshadowing I doth see? But stay, o spite! What dreadful dole is here?!
I love the page! It’s so wonderful to see Knowlton again, especially when he’s completely on fire with AWESOMENESS. He and Alan work so perfectly together!
Such a great update. Perfect end to my terribly stressful day of studying. I can go to bed happy now :)
Awwwwww. I can’t decide who to stare at! (Okay, I’m staring at Knowlton…)
p.s. My next door neighbors are Warrens and my first thought was totally, “Like the apple farmers!” True story.
I’ll go you one better — the closest cross-street to my place is Warren Avenue and whenever I drive it I think, “I’m driving on Alan,” in a loop.
“I’m driving on Alan” – I’m…trying to figure out whether I should facepalm or laugh uproariously on that. I’ll likely do both :)
Alan would be so pleased.
I love all of these replies. Just saying.
Mike and I got lost in Boston last week and wound up in Roxbury. Instead of being upset or stressed out I was giddy. “Mike, we’re in Roxbury!! Joseph Warren lived here!”
Exactly my reaction when the train i was on drove through roxbury on the 7th :-)
Why can’t Alan change history and get Joe out of there before it’s too late?
Bea hasn’t taught him how to use her superpowers yet.
Also THAT Bea won’t be around for another year and so unfortunately can’t do anything to alter this particular historical event.
I can’t tell you how much I *love* this page! I guess I didn’t realize just how much I missed Knowlton :( Still bracing myself for what’s bound to happen in the next few pages.
And… whatever do you speak of?
As if you didn’t know! :D
I had to remind myself that they’re not already good friends in this page. Oh, Knowlton, how I’ll miss you when we get back to 1776…
Well… they kind of are now. ;)
This was a good page – I love the conversation between Alan and Knowlton right now.
But, um…am I the only one who stared at the last panel longer than at any of the others? It’s got a mighty sobering effect to see that in the middle of such camaraderie – almost like someone comes in screaming, “We’re in the middle of a war here!”
Sobering is a good word. I hope you like next week’s updates.
Ah. Foolish Brits. Didn’t they figure out they weren’t going to take that highground after the FIRST two slaughters?
Oh and by the way, Knowlton looks extra awesome the way you’re drawing him right now. It’s a really cool change from his old traditional uniform. :D
I think he looks weird without his uniform, lol! Knowlton’s company at Bunker Hill was described as rather back woodsy. An eyewitness describes them in breeches and shoes with big buckles (nary a pair of boots among them). Their coats & waistcoats were “loose and of huge dimensions, with colors as various as the barks of oaks, sumachs and other trees of our hills and swamps could make them, and their shirts were all made of flax, and like every other part of their dress, were home-spun.” They had big round and broad brimmed hats, and old heavy guns, many of which were probably left over from the F&I War. None of them had cartridge boxes, instead they all had powder horns. And a few of the war vets may’ve had bayonets.
All & all, Trumball’s depiction of Knowlton’s attire isn’t far off. Which isn’t surprising considering he used likenesses when he could and eyewitnesses when he couldn’t.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think Trumbull made Knowltons face look too wide. Or maybe I’m just too used to your depiction of him. Who did you base his likeness on, anyway?
Weird!? Pssh! No, if anything he looks better. ;) Powder horns…practically in the stone age. Cartridge boxes were so much more efficient. In my opinion anyway. (Glad I never had to find out.)
Trumball! I figured that’s where you got the ideas for his clothes; knew I recognized it somewhere. And David, I agree with you. He looks…old in that painting.
I did lift the colors for Knowlton’s clothes from the Trumbull painting. I figured I should tip my hat to him.
I fear that the ORO is not far off for someone important… Have been looking far and wide in medical journals for trauma practitioners who have dealt with this successfully. Alas, nothing helpful.
Ah war…it was like video games in the 1700s. Nothing brings boys together better than shooting bad guys.
Yeah, and those tall Grenadier hats ain’t exactly hard to spot!
Man, I miss Knowlton…
I love the first two panels so much! My favorite stories are “bromances”—Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, Frodo and Sam, Ron and Harry, and now Knowlton and Alan!
I just hope it doesn’t spark some creepy fan art. :-/
….Batman and Robin, Jesse James and Bob Ford….and of course, the ultimate bromance of Jekyll & Hyde
Grant & Sherman is my favorite. <3 Oh wait, that's not a story. That was real life.
Creepy fanart… O_O – OH GOD, NO! Here’s joining you in hoping that never happens.
Seriously, seeing stuff like that for bromance stories creeps me out, but doing that with ACTUAL HISTORICAL FIGURES? A little respect here, guys?
Horatio and Archie from the Horatio Hornblower A&E series. I just wanna group hug whenever they’re on screen together!
So, so true.
Admiral Adama & Colonel Tigh.
Let’s not neglect Russel Crowe, fictional Captain Jack Aubrey and Dr. Steven Maturin of “Master and Commander – the Far Side of the World.” Yes, yes, they are Brits. But we make exceptions for Napoleonic War naval heroes.
Heh….Juba and Maximus, baby. Juba. And. Maximus.
Okay. Horatio/Archie/Faith/Lora group hug. Just the thought of it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Happy thought.
Wait a sec! I forgot Han and Chewie….or Han and Lando….or Han and Luke…
Wow, that General Solo sure liked getting his bromance on, didn’t he?
I so love the Alan/Knowlton realtionship….this poage reminds me how much I’ll miss it :’(
Second, I don’t like where the pages are leading awfully quickly…JOSEPH DON’T LEAVE!!!!!!!
Third, the VI….Doth I spy my Nathan??????
Yeah really…Nathan hasn’t been around in FOREVER.
