only one page tonight!
and i'm afraid that's how it's gonna be from now until the middle of august - this way there will still be updates while i'm away in china. i just haven't got enough to cover it otherwise, and i don't want there to be days without updates. depending on how many i get done between now and then, hopefully there might be a couple of 2 page updates, but don't count on it.

it's a little bit irritating for me, because hemlock definitely isn't meant to be read one page at a time, but it's my own fault for not getting enough done orz sorry everyone.

(lumi is meant to be shuffling her skirts to sit down on a stool, but without the next page to follow, it looks really bizarre to me XD)

edit: guys i haven't left yet, i'm not going until the 21st >w< i was just warning you in advance. thanks anyway, though!

each issue is priced at £6 plus postage and packing. they can be bought through lulu.com at my storefront here: http://stores.lulu.com/mildtarantula lulu accepts both card and paypal

@GingerRevenge: implications! D:
@bombsoverbordeaux: aww, thank you! <3
@Cannetella: haha! he'd be too useless to ever invent a science i think.
@Pidgeoni: i'm glad you think so! and thanks :)
@Noelle: ...spinoff, anyone? XD
@Fenya: ah, you're close! ;) and i was actually gonna do a china related hemlock picture haha! i'll see what i can come up with.
@Ryo: i'm glad to hear it! haha tristan's face was unrelated to it though i think. mostly. maybe.
@Guest: nope. that eye went back to sindri. tristan's third eye is something else. it was a bit ambiguous, though.
@:twoHEARTS: aww, that makes me happy to hear! <3 i'm glad you like it!
@Kohikki: he is surprisingly astute for someone who looks so bleary! i reckon kolya is like one of those people that believes in alien conspiracy theories and every so often just happens to be right. his chickens are really dinosaurs, he's TELLING you. haha i love your mass-comments XD
@maddoraptor: ooweeoooo...or however the theme goes.
@SanjLovesAnime: but an update nonetheless :) thanks!
@Mythee: man i don't eat seafood at the best of times D: i mean, i like prawns and shrimps, they taste good, but the longer i look at them, the more they start to look like little worms to me x_x i can't eat them!
@polkadots: thank you! <3
@bluecrow: that's true! and thanks ^^
@3o-s-knight: yup, for 3 weeks with my university :D i'm panicking haha!
@Stitchedbullet: aww, that's sweet of you haha! here's hoping china will be...wait for it....ALGEBRAIC.
@Aica: or will you~ ;D
@Fenya: it's so true!!!
@jello-bomb: aww, thank youu~
@bunkun: thank you so much! i'll try my best to stay healthy and safe but i'm expecting food troubles at least once, haha!
@lovesjam: thank you so much! <3

Ooooh the boy has -suspicions-... curious to see what she says!

July 7th, 2011, 3:58 pm

ohhh, this is lovely.
have a safe trip to china!

July 7th, 2011, 5:21 pm

Kolya : The father of forensic science.

Have fun in China!

July 7th, 2011, 6:20 pm

One is enough :)

That trip really sounds exciting, have a good time!

July 7th, 2011, 6:40 pm

omigod this is like CSI:Hemlock

July 7th, 2011, 7:05 pm

?!?! Who's blood would that be? Is it just from Lumi's cut or what???
Now I'm quite intrigued (yet again OTL)

Oh, and thank you for updating while you are away! Even if it is just one page it's still great, so don't worry and enjoy your trip !!!

(But,just in case you felt too bad, I'm pretty sure no one would mind if you made a china-related hemlock piece....)

July 7th, 2011, 8:20 pm

Dun worry, I got the shirt shuffling bit ^^

I'm soe xcited to see where Kolya is going with this! I keep thinking back on Tristan's "O_O Oh god" face, and it makes me wonder!

July 7th, 2011, 9:26 pm

Wow. I wonder whose blood he's talking about?
This actually reminds me of the fact that Tristan's third eye comes from Sindri, right? He's like, spying on Lumi... the creep.
Or am I remembering wrong? XD

July 7th, 2011, 11:45 pm

3.15: :D <3 Lumi's reaction is possibly the most beautiful reaction ever. Oh Lumi, I love you.
Way to flatter a lady, Kolya.
3.16: Haha, he's cute though, he's just pleased as punch that she'll let him follow her.
Ooo, snail language returns!
3.17: I love that Tristan can speak snail. :) Animals gotta get along. Even if he's not good at the grammar, haa. I still love him and his little hat. Cute frog.
XDXD Tristan's "Oh god" made me laugh out loud. Haaa, this is gonna be awkward, poor lil froggie Tristan. Although Kolya might understand, being that he believed the whole witch thing.
3.19: Drinks with floating eyeballs served inside of a giant snail... in such a delicate manner. (Lumi cracks me up, I love her so much)
3.20: Aw, ;( He came because he was worried about Tristan, nice cousin. Although since he looked for Lumi, there's probably more to it than just that, eh?
I love the layout of the bottom two panels here.
3.21: Lumi, stop being so amazing. I love her whole reasoning for not doing necromancy is that it's messy and smells awful. Also DAMN, Kolya, you are an ASTUTE motherfucker aren't you.
3.22: Lumi's face in the second panel is great. And the whole composition of the panel and the page and everything oh god, this comic is so good.
And I really am digging great detective Kolya over here.

Have fun in China!!!

Doctor Kolya, apparently.

July 8th, 2011, 10:00 am

It's ok if it's one page... Sad but, at least you posted on your way to China. Have fun and I hope you enjoy it =^.^=

July 8th, 2011, 10:06 am

Ohh, China! Have fun there, but watch out for shady restaurants that can give you food poisoning. Try to avoid seafood and you should be fine. >.<;;

July 8th, 2011, 11:03 am

At least there will be updates while you are in China. Have fun there, I can't wait for the next page! :)

July 8th, 2011, 2:45 pm

Don't worry, i can try to skip some weeks and read it a coupla pages at time. Beside time is what it is, as always. No worries again, and have fun in the eastern country!

July 8th, 2011, 3:51 pm

Don't worry! It only makes the comic more suspenseful :'UUUU you're going to china?! Have a great time man!!

July 8th, 2011, 6:36 pm


Erm. I mean... XD Ooo, have fun in China. 8D I will try not to cry over one page updates. lolol At least you're still going to update. I don't think I could bear a week without Hemlock. O:

July 8th, 2011, 9:08 pm

Now whose blood could it be? I shall know(maybe) next week!
Have fun then!:D

July 8th, 2011, 10:00 pm

JSDFHJSDAF That answer..to Kohikki...

July 9th, 2011, 9:39 am

Oooooooh have fun in China :D We don't mind your updates being smaller - the quality is still great!
Kolya's mystery thickens! Hmmmm.

July 10th, 2011, 8:30 pm
