This is one of the pages that has showcases a bit of real-life influence. Specifically, that’s basically a map of my old neighborhood where I grew up. The house that they’re running to is even the house where the real-life Chelsea lived.

Yes, the character of Chelsea is mostly based on a girl I knew for many years growing up who lived right across the street from me. Her real name wasn’t actually Chelsea, and I won’t reveal her true identity, but interestingly enough we actually are good friends now (not that that’s a spoiler or anything, hehe). A lot of what she does in the comic is directly taken from real life, but other elements to Chelsea’s character, like her being a foster child, are entirely fictional.


Moral of the story: if you want to be good at debating as a girl, have bigger boobs than the other person? Never mind trying to provide a better argument than your opponent, skin deep’s all that matters.

For some reason that panel really irks me.

Well, It’s a comedy … each panel is supposed to make you smile or laugh. It’s not like it is supposed to be reflecting the absolute reality. I applaud you for promoting gender equality and fighting sexism, but you should think about choosing your venues …

Well, originally it was just the tail that was supposed to appear, and we wouldn’t get what was bothering Lori until the last panel (the tail only she can see). But I wanted to show that Sammy isn’t quite done experimenting with the phone. Giving her a bigger chest has nothing to do with winning the debate, it was intended as a way to toss Lori off her game. Also serves as some goodbye fan-service XD

That’s… pretty accurate, actually, try debating as a girl :J That whole debate club “argue any position, no matter how ludicrous” thing? It’s all about tactics that don’t care whether your statements are true or false, they appeal to emotions and leave landmines of bullshit and whatnot.

Of course, normally you have to dance the line of doing it without getting caught at it… but what’s Lori going to do here, complain about the magic phone?

The PROBLEM is that you are doing the typical evil feminist ploy – ONE of the many evil feminist ploys – of trying to IDENTIFY with EVERY female character in every work of fiction you encounter. Why do you feel COMPELLED to try to identify with her? Is it some sort of obsessive-compulsive disorder? What do you want, for every female character in every work of fiction to be a frigging genius? Does your sense of self-worth depend on that? What if you encounter a stupid woman in real life? Do you think her very existence makes you less of a person, just by existing? Do you try to murder her because her very existence offends you? You know what? When a male encounters a stupid male character, he says “ha ha, what a stupid guy, I’m sure smarter than him”. When a female with a functional brain encounters a stupid female character, she says “ha ha, what a stupid bimbo”. When she encounters a stupid male character, she says, “ha ha, what a stupid guy”. When a male encounters a stupid female character, he says “ha ha, what a stupid bimbo. Also she’s hot.” But when a feminist encounters a stupid female character, she says “I am OUTRAGED! This is an EVIL PLOT from the PATRIARCHY to give ALL WOMEN a bad name! Because SHE is speaking for my whole gender!” Add to the fact that Sammy HAS already proved – if you read the stupid thing – that she IS as dumb as a post. It’s not like we’re talking about someone who is a frigging genius letting you down at the end after you’ve been given reason to actually identify with her and build up a high opinion of her. Add to that the fact that this is one step short of porno material aimed at males with furry fetishes. You shouldn’t be reading it ANYWAY. It is not AIMED at you. It is not aimed at me either, I’m just bouncing around links back and forth from the top rated web comics (starting from 2kinds), but I digress. But let me ask you, if you encountered a female in real life who DID use her sexuality as a weapon in a “debate” – and you’re out of your mind *cough cough Sarah Palin cough cough Christine Odonnell cough cough Michelle Bachman cough cough* – whew, I must be coming DOWN with something with a cough like that – like I was saying, if you encountered a female who actually exists in real life who was just as sleazy and pathetic and incapable of winning a debate with a coherent argument and relied on her appearance, and you’re out of your mind if you think there aren’t AMPLE examples in real life, would you try to kill her because her very existence offends you? Do you think their existence make a statement that all women are stupid bimbos? Or is it just THEM who are the bimbos? The fact of the matter is, if you think this is sexist, it is a connection YOUR brain makes, not a connection that is inherently in the thing. The thing isn’t sexist. You are.

ending seemed a bit abrupt

Not really. The phone was fixed, Sammy was back to normal and they got away from Lori and Curran. This is more of an epilogue ending. I suppose I could have continued it, but lacking a major driving objective all it could ever become is a slice of life story (with a twist). Too open ended for my taste, I much rather focus on a new project at this point. However, there are some ideas that I’ve been throwing around with Curran regarding this universe, so who knows?

Ooh. I so wish to know more. Heh. I love the ending anyways. Especially the long cat tail she grows in the last panel.

Little sad it’s over. I do wish it was going on as it could have been interesting to see it going further and her playing around with her phone.

I do find the ‘bigger boobs is better’ thing rather tiring though. I think she looks much nicer normally.

Instead of ending it right there, you could continue with the story of her exploiting the features of the phone and come to realize why the phone is the way it is. She could start exploiting the phone to help people, coming to grips with the world is much more mysterious than she realize. You can also grow the characters in more in-depth character development to allow for comedy, romance, action, and drama.

🙁 oooohhh why are most of the comics either ending or aren’t being updated regularly!

There’s definitely room for a sequel, if not quite the proverbial “hole the size and shape of a sequel”. The iMew phone can somehow graft feline traits onto its user? HOW? Maybe it’s exploiting some sort of hyperadvanced technology; maybe it’s just plain Magic. Either way, there’s a friggin’ *factory* turning these things out somewhere.

What *else* is the factory doing with this hypertech/magic? Who knows about it? And many other questions that follow logically…

Coming soon to underground stores near you : iPawed Its a dog gone good player for all your favorite media…. ( Don’t you worry, it will get your tail a waggin. ) Also coming soon iBubble, iFly and the newest in performance related equipment.. the iTrot.

so with the iMew story over, does this mean no more updates to this site, or will a new story take it’s place?

Since this is the first time this happens in the Katbox, there’s really no precedent to follow. Honestly I see nothing wrong with keeping a complete comic up. As far as additional updates, there are some ideas, but we really have no timetable as to when it will happen.

As i read the comments I can’t help but facepalm, everyone is saying” im so sad its over,” “Oh god why!?” where upon you read the description they never officaly stated that because the first “Book” is over, that their ending Imew. and they even say come back in a month to see what happens…

its over?… i was hoping it would last longer… well you did say that you’re not finished yet… please try to make more soon i really enjoyed it…

Is this comic dead?

No, it’s complete. (you might have missed the “the end” bit?)

What if you had an alternate ending?

Interesting, I wonder how it would go?

Even though I don’t think anyone’s reading the comments anymore, I had the idea of how cool it would be if this comic was recreated following choices that we were curious about the first time around, like what would it have been like if Sammy “told” Raf instead of if they hadn’t fixed the phone, etc. Just an idea. I also commented because it brought the number of comments to 90 so yay for that.

tis been 2 months and is there any change, sorry if i sound impatient

I don’t mean to burst your bubble but this comic has reached it’s end and there are no more updates. Also, “tis” means it is so using it in a sentence such as thee is using the word incorrectly.

you happy with that? you satisfied with your correction? and if you read the discription it says to check in a month or two to see what happens to the comic, i didnt ask if there would be a new comic i asked if there was any change.

maybe there would of been a alternate version like instead of a cat type on a vixen version or maybe a sequel where the app get used by someone else a year later heck maybe even a one where a college girl who had a rough time gets to gain a app on her new phone which has two modes a alter self mode and alter target mode which she uses the phones camera to aim on the target she gets to change such as a example she changes a cheerleader that bullied her into a cowgirl with urges to eat grass to make fun of her

Oh crap!!!! Oh you sly….. MMM…. I figured out what happened, well sort of… Oh man that is clever!!!! This is Doctor who level of clever!!! You are brilliant man!!! Brilliant!!!! I could kiss you!!! But I wont… Oh man!!! Thank you for this Captain Video!!! You have made a great comic!!! And it is Fantastic!!
