Yay an update!

!? ..Jeremey.. remembers Jeff? But why is he pointing a blade at him? FIND OUT NEXT TIME ON SIDE QUESTS!

Here's page 171! Also you may have noticed with these last few pages, the page sizes are slightly bigger. I can fit more panels in, while also leaving more breathing space in between them so things don't seem so cramped! (There is also a little extra I want to put in the next page specifically, so it'll be even longer!)

If you like what you see, pretty please consider supporting our Patreon any amount, no matter how small, helps out!

Sorry for the delay folks! As I've said before, I've got quite a busy Summer! The roughdraft for the next page is finished and up on Patreon for *Patron-Eyes-Only* if you want an early sneak peak! Check it out!

Man this is killing me! I want more!

leviatron (Guest), June 30th, 2015, 3:35 pm

well i guess it shouldn't be surprising gabby told jeremey that jeff was someone evil

Brett McGill (Guest), June 30th, 2015, 3:52 pm

Gah, it's like every update is a cliffhanger. Every strip gets me more excited for the next one.

Nease01 (Guest), June 30th, 2015, 7:16 pm

wow after Jeff swam across a ocean, climbed a string up higher than the clouds, escaped form jail and almost got sent back, and climbed who knows how high up the castle. just to get Jeremey back all in one day and Jeremey pulls a sword on him. the suspense is killing me.

This chapter's plot twists more than a Twizzlers™

Sig (Guest), July 1st, 2015, 4:42 pm

Come on Gabby, go down there and beat up the pregnant lady!

Takeshre, July 1st, 2015, 9:49 pm

Jeremey is so brainwashed that he doesn't even remember that he's supposed to fight with a lighter, some gasoline, and a vacuum.

Luigi_96, July 2nd, 2015, 7:26 pm

Oh, snap.

Something tells me Gabby has been twisting his memory of Jeff, that or the sword isn't actually pointed at Jeff and this is all a trick.

Takeshre, July 5th, 2015, 7:38 am

I don't know why, but it just hit me in the face that the reason Jeremey remembers Jeff and yet is acting hostile is because Gabby probably made him out to be... Well, basically her. She probably said that he was some clingy friend who keeps getting in the way of their love.

Plot twist the gene never brainwashed jeremey but told him just to roll with it for a little bit and he pulled the sword on a guard that may or may not be behind jeff or im completely wrong.

but only time can tell.

Awesome series you got goin' here! I just started yesterday and I'm already all caught up! I'm actually working on my own series,but so far,life gets in it's way..

TerminalMontage, July 12th, 2015, 5:43 pm

Wow Dark Spade thanks! I'm glad you like it :D and good luck with your series! Alas, life gets in the way some times, I've learned that!

This Summer is busy for me, so SQ is gonna have to wait a bit before I can do the next page!

Dark Spade (Guest), July 15th, 2015, 4:33 am

No prob! The wait is always worth it!

Also,I was wondering,what do you use to make these amazing pages?

TerminalMontage, July 15th, 2015, 4:53 am


Now, I do the line art in Manga Studio, backgrounds and colors in Flash, and sometimes Photoshop for quick finishing touches. I hope to eventually drop Flash and do all the art in Manga Studio, but I'm still learning it.

slappy31 (Guest), July 16th, 2015, 9:24 pm

is it just me or dose it feel like that jeremey and jeff don't have the same ideas for the show as they did 6 years ago. like how that villain in episode 5 don't go anywhere, or that one town in the first episode. both are never seen again. sure we see that one guy form the town in ep 5 but that's the last time we ever here about it. maybe we will see both of them make a return in season 2.

I feel like when season 2 dose come out, that almost everything will change. like how it was jeff and jeremey's story to jeff, jeremey, and the anesthesia chick's story. season 2 might throw a lot of new stuff at the table or go back as thing were before episode 7 and 8, or im just thinking way to much about this.
only time can tell

TerminalMontage, July 16th, 2015, 10:27 pm

Slappy I love how keen you are on the series :)

Only time will tell! We have lots of episode ideas written down, and we've only got about 8 of them out so far. But I assure you, we don't like leaving loose ends.

Takeshre, July 25th, 2015, 3:24 am

Evidently you do, as this entire story arc couldn't have happened if not for a loose end in the stitch on Jeremey's robe.

Nease01 (Guest), July 29th, 2015, 9:06 pm

Ill like to add on to slippys comment and what was the ice thing all about in pg 111 and why was a different comic in this one. are they going to be connected latter on?

TerminalMontage, July 29th, 2015, 11:40 pm

I don't wanna spoil anything, but yes. :)

ADerpyMooCow (Guest), August 7th, 2015, 8:29 pm

I can see why each page will take as long as they do. Animation and story telling is not an easy thing to do. One hard part is the characters, you have to draw them almost the same way every time. the other is that they need personality. if an character doesn't have one its hard to know exactly how there going to act towards the situation. just drawing the outlines of the characters alone takes a lot of time. making them move and talk is an different ballpark all together.

An other, is the animation in general. seeing the mass detail in the backgrounds that you draw they must take all day to make not including the color. Just to color the backgrounds and the characters must take a lot of layers and time. You also have to make sure that colors of the characters don't go over the lines and the background color.

I know animation is hard because I was inspired to do it after reading this. On my journey i found out that i cant draw my characters consistently and i don"t have the money to buy a sketch pad for my computer. I also know that thousand of people are trying to make it in the industry. i do want my ideas to get out there even if they fail. until then i will work hard to draw almost as good as you.

TerminalMontage, August 8th, 2015, 12:50 pm

Thank you DerpyMooCow :) fellow artists understand! But it also takes a while because I'm working on other things :(

I'm happy Side Quests has inspired you, I like that you want to get your ideas 'out there' rather than just draw because you like it - I think there is a difference with those kinds of people, and that's the reason I draw too.

cloud (Guest), August 10th, 2015, 9:50 pm

a song to play every time you check if the comic has been updated and see that it hasn't.

Lord Ai (Guest), August 11th, 2015, 7:11 pm

For this i'll call the amnesia girl AG for short

I think that AG is Gabby from a parallel universe. She probably lost her memory while crossing over to ares. I say this because the genie hunter says "she's an anomaly to this universe!" saying that to this universe she is not normal. The genie also says "your excessive wishing is starting to disturb the very fabric of the universe." That dose suggest that there might have been an tear between the two. After all the genie did say she was found in the palace were Gabby is currently staying.

AG and Gabby are the exact opposite. Gabby likes jeremey but AG likes jeff and how Gabby is mean and AG is nice. some smaller details is that Gabby has straight hair and AG has curly hair. Also how Gabby wears an bow and AG don't. That's all i can find from text so far but hay maybe she isn't and i'm all wrong.

TerminalMontage, August 12th, 2015, 1:19 pm

I like this theory crafting ;D I won't say if it's accurate or not but I like that you're thinking that.

Guest, August 16th, 2015, 3:28 pm

Next time on Side Quests?
Perhaps by 2016

TerminalMontage, August 18th, 2015, 3:13 am

Hopefully sooner ;)
