Adventurous junior high schooler and brother to Cass. After being turned halfway into a flying squirrel, Flint pushed his mutation further in order to be able to glide.

CCXXXII: Just Get on With It, People

Posted by on March 11, 2018
Production Code: UTC232

Lookit all these already-transformed characters we’ve never seen transform.

Just look. No backstories. They’re just appearing for flavor to add to the diversity of the looming fight sequence.

*sobs* What am I even making this comic for.

CCXXIV: The Attic is Apologetic

Posted by on January 15, 2017

The final panel should technically only include “Attic’s Six” because Cass is alluding to the ethics class only. But Flint had arrived with the others and I couldn’t leave him out of the group shot for something this dramatic. He’s much too closely involved with all that’s going on to be left out. Thirteen, less so, so I chose to exclude her even though it seems unfair since I already made that one exception.

CCXXI: Bear Baby Breakout

Posted by on October 18, 2016
Production Code: UTC221

This is the part of the story arc that many writers (particularly screenwriters of action/horror films) hate. At some point you need to assemble all of the various groups and they need to share information with each other that the audience has already learned. It can get clunky and repetitive. Robert Rodriguez brilliantly found a way to skip this section of his film Planet Terror by literally cutting it out and claiming that the theater had misplaced that reel of footage. I have no such fallback option, so I have to just make this as entertaining as possible. Cue crowdsurfing Flint!

CCXVII: A Class Determined

Posted by on March 5, 2016
Production Code: UTC217A

This chapter originally launched in November 2015 with this single page. Shortly after posting, I had some serious issues with my ability to complete pages in a timely manner and was unhappy with the overall look of the page.

Eventually I redrew the middle section of the page and improved the backgrounds, adding some subtle textures.

This is the very first time the primary building of Attic High is seen in full. I hadn’t ever designed the complete structure, so the layout was cobbled together from what few exterior shots existed prior to this point, and I attempted to make the building match the established interiors as well. Then I covered almost the entire drawing in snow so you can barely see it. Surprisingly, this ended up being the easiest of all the panels on this page.
