Chapter Seven, This Is Where We Used To Live

This page contains several references to one thing. If you get it, cool, if not, also cool. No one wins anything for getting it, no one will die unloved if they don't. It's comics, man!

I know I said the last chapter was the last chapter, but the more I looked at it, I realize the flow needed to be broken up into another. So here, I give you the last chapter of Bishop St. Almost two and a half years, Book Three of Pictures of You is nearly done, and thank god because it nearly put me in the ground.

The new TWC voting incentive is the inked stage of the Book Four preview. Looks pretty shiny to me. Much more to say about all of this later. For now, vote here to take a peek: http://topwebcomics.com/vote/8932/default.aspx

And one more call out for anyone with a question for the PoY characters, any question of any character, or even the author if that floats your boat. Email them to me at gibson_twist[at]yahoo[dot]com Thanks to everyone who's already sent us your questions, I hope you'll be happy with the answers!

A few more things! First, Washington Post journalist Michael Cavna is throwing open the doors to webcomics and holding a "Best" Webcomic pageant. If everyone could take a moment, read the article and throw an email into the mix to nominate your favourite webcomics (COUGHHINT) you could potentially draw some traffic to a deserving title...y'know, whichever one you can think of (COUGHHINT!)

The article can be found here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/comic-riffs

Also, SAVE COMMUNITY! We are indeed living in a dark universe. http://www.wetpaint.com/network/articles/save-community-how-can-you-help

You can see more information on these and more in the newest NEWS post on the front page (it's the big NEWS link in the top left corner.)

This page makes me incredibly sad.

Maximum Verneir (Guest), November 18th, 2011, 5:17 am

I'm not sure what the reference is, though I'd actually like to know. Meanwhle, in my braindead state at 4PM, I'm too busy chortling over something else.

BM Toilet Paper. Hah.

Behold the evolved human intellect, as it is captivated by toilet humor!

I like the preview of Book four. But this too makes me a little sad.

Steve (Guest), November 18th, 2011, 6:44 am

I'm guessing the title is a Barenaked Ladies reference ("The Old Apartment")?

Mr. Twist: I am not a web comic afficianado, but I have been a fan of this work for over a year and a half. I can't do your work justice, but I hope this email to the Washington Post starts the ball rolling on bigger and better things!

"Pictures of You at www.picturesofyoucomic.com is a fantastic serial. College days remembered, growing up, love and loss, good friends and bad decisions.

POY has been running for a few years, with postings three times a week. The art is excellent and the storyline engaging. The artist/writer, Gibson Twist, has a great knack for cliff-hanger breaks from post to post, a deep connection to his characters, and memorable insults.

This is a great graphic novel for those of us who enjoy remembering our misspent youth..."

cant really make out whats on peters box, and not really sure what deans hamburger is a ref to, but i like the BNL ref for the title. and christo's box made me chuckle.
all in all, lovin it! cant wait to see how things unravel.

Welcome to the Old Apartment
...this is where we used to live...

I know I know I know!!!! I can't find the 3rd one though, I think I see it but I might just be reading too much into it :P

Gibson Twist, November 18th, 2011, 7:30 pm

The best hint I can give, and this will make it really obvious to anyone who would get it. Carry on, my wayward son. There'll be peace when you are done.

Dammit, cals1607 beat me to it.

The end of Season Five where Dean stops the apocalypse by charging through the graveyard in the Impala, Kansas blaring in the background? You can't beat that, ever.

One more reference that was missed: That particular scene took place in a graveyard in Lawrence, Kansas, where Dean and Sam "used to live". Comes around full circle!

shalahoyden, November 19th, 2011, 7:52 am

Lol I didn't even catch the Lawrence thing. The other one I saw was from the episode where there was a demon on a plane and Dean walked up to the flight attendant and said "Christo?"

Gibson Twist, November 20th, 2011, 4:25 am

I didn't catch the Lawrence thing either, though the scene Hank's describing is at the end of season 2, not 5. Don't dig too deep, folks, I don't make references quite that symbolic. And I'll say it again, there's no prize for spotting anything.

The title is certainly a Barenaked Ladies reference.

The_Hankerchief, November 23rd, 2011, 1:00 am

No no, t'was season five, although I overlooked that one, too (the one where Yellow Eyes winds up with the Colt). It was the Season Finale, where Sam lets Lucifer possess him and them jumps into Hell, sacrificing himself to prevent the apocalypse.

Anyway, good call on references!
