Kara is just your average American high school student, plopped into a shojo plot at an international boarding school in Japan. Hilarity ensues as Kara seeks new friends and a normal life in a world full of manga stereotypes, like a silent-but-strong bodyguard, a gun-crazy femme cop, an angelic bishi, and a sword-wielding rival. Out of Place will have you laughing as it both embraces and satirizes the genre of shojo manga. I'll post the first 4 chapters here, one page per day for about 2 months, but chapters 5 and 6 are available on Wirepop.com only.
Hey all, I set up shop at Etsy this month, and encourage you to go over and check out my original artwork and minicomics for sale! The url is http://www.Tallychyck.Etsy.com. Thanks, and happy New Year!!!
Well, I'm afraid we've made our way through all of chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the chapter 5 cover will be the last page I upload to Smackjeeves for Out of Place. :,(
The rest of the story to date, including 34 pages in chapter 5 and 19 in chapter 6, are available at www.Wirepop.com. Chapter 6 will be 26 pages long, and the rest of the chapter is already penciled, to be finished and uploaded soon.
I am so, so happy for all of the people who have followed the story on this site! There were some users who commented virtually every day--you are amazing!!! I really appreciated your interest. Making comics is much more fun when you feel like there are readers who are with you during the process.
Thanks again, take care, and please visit my website if you want to read other stories by me,
Thank you all so much for 100+ fans!!! 8DDD Wow, I'm so happy that people are reading Out of Place! :D I'm really swamped right now (just moved back into the sorority, and getting ready for recruitment takes up to 9 hours per day!!! D:), but I'll make some art as a thank-you when I have time. :)
A HUGE thanks to AyaneSensei for the new layout!!! Isn't it lovely? :D Green is my favorite color and everything!!! #^w^#
Hey, guys!! Thanks for all of your support so far with Out of Place--it's been a pleasure posting for you all and getting to read your sweet and funny comments <3
I have a pin-up for y'all I'd like to post when the comic hits a landmark like 50 fans, so tell your friends about the comic! :)
This is Out of Place--my first and longest webcomic. It started in 2004 and has been going for 4 years! Last fall, I signed on with Wirepop.com, where you can read all of the pages to date, but I thought I'd post the first 4 chapters, which are free on Wirepop, here for possible new readers to discover :D
Thanks for visiting, hope you enjoy Out of Place! <3
