I like how a lot of the action in this page turned out. decently pulled out so we can see more of what is going on. But not so far out it looks like we're watching with a telescope.

Anyways hope you all have a good start to your new year! I think I'm off to a good start of my new year goal to lose weight. Got food poisoning so I haven't eaten much I can just feel the ponds running out of me... Ya enjoy that thought for the start of your new year!

That's a pretty severe wound Tirea got in Panel 4. Arua needs to dispatch this ghoul quickly and heal her. Good to see Tirea did *not* hesitate to pitch in that time, but she's going to need some work on defense. Also, raw power is not going to be her strong point. If she's going to learn close-in fighting it's going to have to be oriented around pressure-points and tendons. You don't actually have to be physically strong to tear someone's muscles, you just have to hit the right place with enough speed.

It's ironic I'm sitting here talking about a Tauren not being strong. Any Tauren in game could flatten any given human with just a slap. But we're talking relative strength. Tirea is nowhere near Arua's raw strength, and probably short of Veja's. They've had training and lots of experience, though, so she can catch up to them with the right training on the right techniques. Where she can blow past them, literally, is using that engineering knowledge. In addition to firearms, I'm thinking she could probably whip up some gauntlets that would not only pack a strong punch, but deliver a nice shock to the target.

These are great action sequences. And since I had to change my diet I have lost 20 pounds so it is possible. Non-sequitur: you're the 2nd person I know who got food poisoning in the new year. Wtf is going on with the food supply?

Finally, repeating this here for those who don't read back pages. As of 8:48pm EST on 12/31/17, GRATZ was at #786 on Comic Fury, a considerable pick up from last time I had checked. The comic received a total of 53 votes during the month of December, also a slight uptick from previous checks. HOWEVER: most of those votes were mine from voting for the comic every day during the month. We can do better, people. The higher the comic ranks on Comic Fury the better the chance new readers will see it. It takes less than a minute to visit the page once a day, hit the Vote button, and register the vote. With Lacking seeking to earn some cash from the comic now, this would be a big help.

I really need to look at getting Gratz involved in some comic collections.

The Blizzard Watch wrap up helped out a lot but they quit doing that for some reason.

But thank for the votes! Every little bit helps! It would be astounding to brake into the top 100 at some point.

If I had to guess from what I know of their business model, it was probably a financial decision for BW. They have to pay the authors to write up those columns, and the comic wrap up seemed to get very few comments from what I saw. It could also have to do with lack of enough comics updating regularly. If I remember "From Draenor With Love" ended it's run, and a couple others were updating sporadically.

I know Taurenitup goes with Tumblr, and some other artists also use that platform.

I believe one of the things that has helped in my weight loss is the fact that I did lay off soda completely for a long, long time. For months there I was really pinching my sodium intake, and 12 oz of soda was 65mg of sodium I preferred to get from something else. If you really miss soda you could look into one of those SodaStream machines. They inject carbonation into tap water, so you just add some fruit flavor and have a soda that's actually water.

And I've quit WoW again. I couldn't even level a ProtWarrior past 57 without becoming disgusted with the sorry, rude, selfish, twats that are WoW players. I'm out until something more interesting comes along.

It's the dew I enjoy.

Sorry to hear people are idiots, I think with the new leveling sysetm on the way, every anyone who is scard to try a bit in a video game is swarming the lower levels trying to get alts up.

I think wow could benifit from a reporting sysetem like Hots has. If nothing else I find it helps me just to mark a jerk as a jerk and move on with my day.

As mentioned below, Mountain Dew is the worst thing you can drink if you're trying to lose weight. Take a gander at the attached articles:

And don't think the Diet version is better:

If you really, really, really want a Mountain Dew experience while trying to drop some pounds, I strongly urge you to look into SodaStream: It turns ordinary water into sparkling water. Then add some lime and some lemon flavor: boom, Dewless Mountain Dew. You soon won't miss actual Dew, and you certainly won't miss the pounds and the gum disease. Listen to the cow.

Ponds? Oh right, pounds. I thought "ponds" was some odd expression that I didnt know of, haha!

Building on the soda thing that Maryalee mentioned, quitting it would definitely help you with losing weight. Mountain Dew is literally the worst soda that you can put into your body. Drink tons of water or juice if you crave the sugar. Or, as was also suggested, finding a way to carbonate/flavour water. I find myself drinking soda because I like the fizz. Seltzer water, club soda, or mineral water all also have carbonation and the first two can even have flavour options!

Eating less salt would also help immensely. If you like veggies and snack often (I don't know your life, but I like to snack!), celery actually burns more calories to digest than it gives off.

Also, Tirea, you tried. Luckily, Arua's good at healing!

Ponds is just another misspelling of mine. But it must be some kind of word because the spell checker isn't grabbing it.

I do like broccoli.
