And so it begins.

It's hard to draw a straight comparison, but I like to think things have come a long way since the original raver tg tf. Certainly more colorful these days, at any rate.

I'm having a lot of fun intertwining the transformation with the continuing story. I've done many many sequences with little or no background, but those fall a bit flat in the long run. For TG to be truly meaningful it must have context; a man is hardly any sort of man if he only exists for one panel. The point of turning a man into a woman is that he used to be a man. I did my best across the first three pages to express, as quickly as possible, the sort of person Anarchy is. My hope is that it will make the following pages that much more meaningful.

Obviously, things have a lot more direction this time around. The TF is happening for a very specific reason rather than it just being a random doodle. The allusions at the bottom of the page are just the beginning of an explanation that will take some time to fully explore. Also, Anarchy reacts in a slightly more logical way this time around. He tries to rationalize it at first and then begins to panic when he can no longer explain what is happening.

Eh, I dunno what else to say I guess. Here's a comic.

Aye, changing sex sucks... but being born as the wrong sex sucks more, because you start out thinking you're going nuts and stuff.
Until you realize... that a guy is all you've been all the time.
Nature; WHY are you such a bitch sometimes!?

Hey, would you mind if I posted this and some of your other non-adult works at this new forum?

It's a good TG. I'd post the comic and give you credit, but unfortunately page 7 violates our anti-adult protocols...

Go ahead and post them there if you like; that's why I release them under creative commons, after all!

Just make sure people know that if they come to by gallery and/or ninmunanmu.com that they are likely to encounter adult-oriented material. I'm not out to shock people or anything.

Also, optionally tell your forum administrators that their censorship is hypocritical and ultimately useless.

nice, I like the touch that every character has their own colour, for speech, for clothing, and even as we see here, for aura.

it gives it an original and interesting quirk.

Very cool page. I do like how just the body changed and the clothes stayed the same. A few times, is see a drink potion do both, which to me was always weird.

I look forward to the next page, and will wait as long as I need to. Your art is always worth the wait.

I did try to emphasize more body changes with less clothing change, but I feel I must point out that his hoodie/shirt changes completely, his pants turn into shorts, and his socks were not nearly that awesome before. I tried to make it more subtle, but the clothing morph is hard to escape ^^.

Well you could have not done it in the first place and have him/her have to buy some temp clothes you know.

And now that you said that, I see it. I is blind I guess. =^-^=

I really like the way the restart has gone, and no offense, but I also like the actual text as opposed to using images to convey their words. But it is nice to have a bit more background to what's going on in the scene, and I look forward to the next and the next and the next etc....

Yeah, the symbols were fun but ultimately not useful for telling a story. They were, much like the original raver comics, a one-shot joke that just kept rolling.

Very nice, though I don't think every TG needs a long backstory. The classic 3-frame is indeed a little bit cheap. The single-frame ones even far moreso--particularly the ones some nerd has just ripped off an anime or manga or whatnot.

Agreed a long back story is unnecessary, just look at cluedogs work. Even showing what the former guy looked like as a guy isn't essential (reaction shots can be very nice).

I told you its 2 parts Antipsudo methenoal not 3 parts!

Antipsudo methenol is poisonous in large amounts, silly, if he got the mixture wrong the Raver would be dead. It's more likely he got the ratio of anchronistic bismunite to organic tefonite wrong.

Definitely possible, but having a quick look-over of the ingredients, I notice the substance lexonitic caragonex, which, as everyone knows, is highly unstable in the presence of alcohol. And there were almost certainly drinks at that party...

*nods, nods* i think we have found the unknown element. He really should have counted alcohol as a given giving the testing environment

This is very refreshing to read in the midst of all the scribbly three-paneled nonsense that passes for TG these days.

Yeah, I feel the same way about a lot of the stuff I see. At least the three-panel ones are verifiably TG. What I'm really sick of is the prevalence of surprised-looking women with captions/speech bubbles suggesting they were men. (You just missed it! He totally transformed!) I can't really complain if people want to contribute the the genre, but I feel like they're missing the point x_x.

Honestly I think that sort of trend was at least a small part of why I stopped producing content for so long. Doesn't seem worth drawing comics/sequences if there's nothing behind them.
