A quick rule-rundown for lowball poker. Not the most exciting page, but I thought it would be a fun inclusion, will also help a later scene make some more sense, haha.

Contest stuff! Today's the last day I'm accepting votes, so we'll have a winner selected tomorrow! If you haven't seen the entries from the contest, you can take a look through them starting here!

This page actually helps. I wasn't 100% sure on the rules, and a quick aside like this is never that intrusive.

Still loving the deep one gang. :)

Almost nobody (including myself) plays Lowball these days, so I thought it would be smart to cover it a little. Doing my research I found it was one of the more common kinds of poker from the north east.

And I'm glad - again, I look forward to every part of the story that features them.

Nor did I - research has illuminated many things about living in this era for me :)

Sort of opposite to the usual card games. Fits these guys well. ;)

It's a tricky game with a lot to know! I've actually spent some time just watching poker videos while I draw to try and understand it better, myself. It's deep, like, rabbit-hole deep.

I'm in love with that dynamic overhead panel and the colors make it more badass!

Looking great!

Hey, thanks, man! I'm trying to outdo myself in some way with every page, it means a lot to get encouragement from people like you, as always!

I'll say it too. You've nailed it with that 3/4 birds eye view in the last panel. That's perfect.

I think it's a bit off, but it gets the point across? Hehe, I'm glad you like it, it was a fun panel to draw.

Ah, poker. Played in every good comic I have read lately :D
And I still think I am the only who does not get the rules...

I think most Poker players don't know how to play Lowball, even - I sure as heck don't! Heheheh
